About the theme

On the one hand, continental traditions have played an important role in the origins of analytic philosophy: think for example of the influence of phenomenology and Neo-Kantianism. On the other hand, David Hume, for example, has been of importance to Kant and Husserl. Independent of these historical aspects, one may ask: Can the continental tradition add something to the problems and methods within analytic philosophy today? Can analytic philosophy be brought to a new stage by incorporating ideas coming from the continental tradition? And, what tensions does this create? Think, for example, of the naturalism that is often presupposed in analytic philosophy. And: Can analytic philosophy contribute to problems and methods in continental philosophy? Although these questions make sense in relation to the whole field of philosophy, the focus of the conference, though, is on theoretical philosophy: epistemology, philosophy of logic and language, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, metaphysics.
