CFP OZSW Graduate Conference in Theoretical Philosophy

The Institute for Philosophy is pleased to host the OZSW Graduate Conference in Theoretical Philosophy on 9 and 10 January 2019

Call for abstracts for the 2019 OZSW Graduate Conference in Theoretical Philosophy

Dates: 9 and 10 January 2019
Theme: Analytic and Continental Philosophy Brought Together
Place: Institute of Philosophy, Leiden University, P.J. Vethgebouw, Nonnensteeg, Leiden

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.
