This conference is intended to be the first in a series of international conferences aiming to discuss Nietzsche’s relation to a variety of schools and traditions within the Western philosophy. The series of international conferences on Nietzsche and the Philosophical Tradition is an academic project conceived by GruNie (Nietzsche’s Research Group of the UFMG). In its first edition, the International Conference will have as theme Nietzsche and the Kantian Tradition, which shall include not only the different sorts of reception of Kantian themes by Nietzsche (acceptance, assimilation, refusal and reformulation of recognizable Kantian views in the fields of metaphysics, epistemology, morals and aesthetics), but also the role played in this reception by various authors of the nineteenth century German philosophy (for instance, Arthur Schopenhauer, Friedrich Albert Lange, Afrikan Spir, Otto Liebmann, Otto Caspari, Gustav Teichmüller and Hermann von Helmholtz); and, finally, an assessment of the relevance of Nietzsche’s criticism of certain aspects of the Kantian philosophy in the light of contemporary reinterpretations of Kantianism.
