International conference

 September 20–21, 2012

University of Antwerp, Belgium



The conference Kantian Ethics and Moral Life aims at bringing together influential authors and young Kant scholars, permitting the participants to engage into a debate concerning the various facets of Kant’s views on how human beings can lead a moral life and on what features are necessary and distinctive for leading a moral life. It invites participants to question and challenge Kant’s thought for its present-day relevance and to discuss Kantian approaches to specific problems in (applied) ethics, but it also welcomes exegetical approaches to Kant’s account of moral life.
