Call for Applications: JHP Summer Seminar, “Kantian Epistemologies” (July 11–15, 2022)

The Master Classes will take place from July 11th to July 15th, 2022.

The deadline for applications is on February 15, 2022.

Here below you can find the course description provided with additional information.

Mindful of the challenges facing young scholars working in the history of philosophy, the Board of Directors of the Journal of the History of Philosophy has established a Summer Seminar in the History of Philosophy. The central idea of the program is that a senior scholar who works primarily in some area of the history of philosophy would undertake to direct an intensive week of summer classes for the benefit of a small group of recent PhDs whose main research and teaching are in the relevant area. Normally, the classes will focus on one or more texts that are typically not part of material that the participants would have studied as graduate students. The goal of the program is the enhancement of the expertise and understanding of the young scholars in their area of specialization.

The JHP will select up to six individuals from among those who apply to participate in five days of intense classes on the announced subject. All travel and housing and food for the duration of the classes will be paid by the JHP up to $1,750. 

Dates: July 11–15, 2022

Location: Princeton University

Topic: “Kantian Epistemologies”

Instructor: Andrew Chignell (Princeton University)

Course Description: Most discussions of Kant’s epistemology focus on his famous arguments regarding knowledge of space and time, the categories and principles of pure understanding, and the limits of speculative knowledge. In this seminar, we will look at the theory of assent, justification, knowledge, and faith found in the Canon of Pure Reason chapter at the end of the first Critique as well as in the logic lectures. The goal is to understand these underdiscussed aspects of Kant’s theory of mind, knowledge, and faith, and to grasp how they fit into the overall critical project. We will also consider a few key contemporary efforts in broadly Kantian epistemology. 

Application: Applicants should send a letter of interest along with a CV to Prof. Mariska Leunissen ([email protected]).

Qualifications: PhD in philosophy received no earlier than January 1, 2016 and no later than July 1, 2021.

AOS: modern philosophy, epistemology. Reading knowledge of German is required.

Deadline for submission: Applications must be received no later than February 15, 2022. Applicants will be notified by March 1, 2022.
