The Department of Philosophy, in collaboration with CVSP and the Goethe Institute, will host the first international conference in Lebanon on the philosophy of Immanuel Kant. The conference will bring together eminent scholars from Europe, United States and the region to speak on one of four themes: Kant and the Philosophy of Action, Kant and the Philosophy of Science, Kant and the Philosophy of Religion, or the reception of Kant’s philosophy in the Middle East. These themes have been chosen to allow for papers on the usual areas in Kant scholarship, while also encouraging those that relate Kant’s philosophy to contemporary work. In particular, the inclusion of a session on the reception of Kant’s philosophy in the Middle East is intended to foster exchange between scholars of the region and our international guests. A fourth day (May 28th) will be devoted to an excursion to one or more of the many historical sites in Lebanon for participants who would like to attend.
