Dear Colleagues,

Perspective/scope of the conference. In his definition of transcendental philosophy Kant postulates shift (turn) from studying of objects to studying of [aprioristic] mode of cognition [CPR, B25] as «the altered method of our thinking» [CPR, BVXIII]. On the one hand, such transcendental turn leads to new metaphysics; on the other hand, the transcendental shift to studying of «mode of our cognition» predetermines influence of a transcendentalism on contemporary development of epistemology, cognitive sciences, and artificial intelligence.
