An international philosophy conference, Thursday 9th and Friday 10th May, 2019. Location: Room P 61, Université Saint-Louis Bruxelles, Boulevard du Jardin Botanique 43, Brussels 1000, Belgium. 

The aim of this conference is to re-examine the philosophical impact of Friedrich Schiller on the emergence, thought and further development of German idealism (Kant, Fichte, Schelling, Hegel, Lotze etc.). There will not only be papers on Schiller's aesthetics (his theories of tragedy, beauty and Darstellung) and ethics (his philosophy of Bildung and humanism), but also talks on his philosophy of history, politics, religion, transcendentalism, philosophical methods, and the concept of critique. In addition, the philosophical relation of Schiller to other significant intellectual figures of the period will be treated, including: Wilhelm von Humboldt and Goethe.
