The Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (Moscow) in cooperation with the Academia Kantiana of the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University (Kaliningrad) is inviting you to the international conference “Herman Cohen in the History of Russian Philosophy”, dedicated to the 100th anniversary since the death of the Marburg philosopher Hermann Cohen.

Head of the Marburg School of Neo-Kantianism Herman Cohen is a symbolic figure for the history of Russian philosophy, and at the same time mysterious. All who turn to the analysis of the role of this German thinker in the history of Russian philosophy of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, face a paradoxical, it would seem, situation. Despite the great authority among Russian philosophers, especially the young, who annually, beginning in 1895, supplemented the students from the Marburg master, and some began under his leadership the path to scientific heights with the defenses of dissertations (O. Buek, D. Gavronsky, N. Hartmann, S. Rubinshtein, etc.), a truly productive study of the creativity of Hermann Cohen in Russia before the revolution did not take place.

Working languages: Russian, English, and German

Suggested topics for discussion:

  • the system of philosophy of Hermann Cohen

  • the relevance of the Cohen’s ideas for contemporary studies in philosophy
