Final Call for Registration: Postgraduate workshop on perceptual experience in Kant and German Idealism

At the University of Warwick, on 19.03.2016; Social Sciences Building, S2.77 Cowling Room

In contemporary philosophy of Mind and epistemology, accounts of perceptual experience, which take as their starting point insights from Kant as well as Hegel, have played an important role. Notably, McDowell explicitly identifies Kant’s account of perceptual experience, developed in the first Critique, as an inspiration for his own account. But, arguably, his account also bears resemblance to that of Hegel. Given this resurgence of interest in the accounts of perceptual experience developed by Kant and Hegel, our postgraduate workshop is intended to bring together the most recent and promising research by graduate students on accounts of perceptual experience in Kant, Hegel, and German Idealism more generally. A special focus will be on the account of perceptual experience developed by Kant, the ways in which German Idealists, first and foremost Hegel, challenge it, and the relation between these accounts and contemporary debates in the philosophy of Perception.
