The aim of this workshop is to investigate Kant’s method in philosophy from the vantage point of its various receptions, both critical and favorable, in the history of philosophy. Philosophers belonging to different traditions (like German idealism, neo-kantianism, phenomenology, pragmatism, analytic philosophy, etc.) have found his method as deserving close attention. From this very diverse appropriation, we get contrasting representations of Kant’s method that are sometimes difficult to put together in a coherent picture. On the one hand, the workshop will thus highlight what these various traditions have found important or worthy of strong criticism in Kant’s approach to philosophical argument and detect the distortions of Kant’s position of which they are sometimes responsible. On the other hand, it will offer a fresh look at Kant’s philosophical method in order to draw attention to aspects of his thought on the matter that have been misrepresented or neglected.
