The Spirit of German Idealism

In the period from 2009 – 2011 the Nordic Network for German Idealism (www.NNGI.org) is arrang-ing various conferences and workshops for researchers and post-graduate students with interest and expertise in the vast and varied field of philosophy, which takes the philosophies of Kant, Fichte Schelling, Hegel and Kierkegaard as its most crucial point of reference.

The third session will be from the 26th to the 28th of May 2010 at the Siemens Stiftung in Mu-nich, Germany. It is a joint venture between the Department of Philosophy at the Ludwig-Maximilian University, the Department of Philosophy at Aarhus University and the NNGI. At the third session there will be a conference on the 26th and 27th with invited speakers and a workshop for students (primarily at the PhD.-level) on the 28th.

The papers for the workshop are not restricted with regards to theme, but they should discuss or deal with the philosophies of Kant, Fichte, Schelling, Hegel or Kierkegaard. Since the general theme for work within the NNGI is Spirit (Geist), we particularly welcome papers that deal with this theme. They may be historically oriented or deal with systematic issues as the authors see fit.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is April 15th 2010.

Abstracts should be submitted to the following e-mail address: filamr@hum.au.dk

Practical issues:
The NNGI will provide funding for travel reimbursement and accommodation during the conference for all participating students up to a maximum of 5000 DKR (about 660EURO).
