History of Philosophy and histories of philosophies

November 1-2, 2018, NaUKMA (National University of "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy")

XIII International Academic Conference “Philosophy: The New Generation”

Historiography in humanities induces lots of methodological and hermeneutical issues. There are at least two competing approaches in this field. The first one tends to establish an integral and consistent description of the past. On the contrary, the second one aims at undermining the attempts to create unified history, transforming it into an intertwined tangle of narratives.

The discussion of the issues related to historiography of philosophy raises comprehensive questions. Is it possible to ask philosophers of the past contemporary questions? Or, is it better not to interfere with the authenticity of the past and explore its characters in a historical context? How does the philosophical canon of modernity look like, and is it possible to change its main features? Can we ascribe existence to the “eternal” philosophical issues and, thereby, legitimize historiosophic plots created on their basis.

We are pleased to invite you to reflect on the History of Philosophy and histories of philosophies: on linear and universal or full of ruptures and entanglements.
