XII. INTERNATIONAL KANT CONGRESS

September 21 -25, 2015

The 12th International Kant Congress in Vienna is dedicated to the antagonism of nature and freedom, which was not only highly topical in Kant’s times, but also in contemporary discussions. More uncertain than during the Enlightenment in the 18th century is the question to which extent humankind is not only ruled by nature, but whether it is nature itself and to which extent man acts in freedom. The resources of the Kantian thinking are offering significant potential for contemporary interdisciplinary discussions connecting philosophy with natural sciences, medicine, neurology and psychology, law and social sciences. The focus of the Kant Congress 2015 in Vienna is on these issues. Moreover, there are three key topics connected to Vienna: Kant and the Vienna Circle, Kant and phenomenology as well as Kant and his poets. Moreover, in the manifold sections of the congress, the wide range of topics in Kant’s philosophy is taken into account.

The official languages of the congress are German, English and French.
