The Department of Philosophy at the American University in Cairo warmly invites you to a book launch workshop on Professor Abraham Anderson’s book Kant, Hume, and the Interruption of Dogmatic Slumber (Oxford UniversityPress, 2020). The thematic focus of this workshop will be how David Hume’s critical reflections on the principle of sufficient reason, the fundamental principle of rationalist metaphysics, interrupted Kant’s dogmatic slumber, and on the implications of this event for understanding both Kant’s relation to his predecessors and his significance for his successors, whether, like Bradley, they sought to restore that principle in its unrestricted form or, like Schopenhauer, agreed with Kant’s restriction of its use to appearances.

The event will begin on May 5th at 6pm *Egypt Time*
