Aarhus Kant Week 2019

The Aarhus Kant Week wants to encourage a lively and controversial discussion of the most important themes from one of the major philosophers of modern times. At issue is a reassessment of the Kantian model of critical thinking. For the Aarhus Kant Week, an internationally acknowledged philosopher and Kant researcher is invited to present and discuss their recent work in Kantian philosophy. The events of the week include a master class, a public lecture, and an international workshop on core topics from Kant. This year’s guest lecturer is Professor Rachel Zuckert (Northwestern University).

Rachel Zuckert is Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University (Evanston/Illinois) and the president of the North American Kant Society. She is a leading and internationally recognized scholar on Kant, Kant’s eighteenth-century contemporaries (especially Herder) and post-Kantian nineteenth-century philosophy. Her book Kant on Beauty and Biology (Cambridge University Press, 2007), by now already a classic, for the first time seriously discussed the question of the unity of the seemingly diverse parts of Kant’s Critique of Judgment, covering aesthetics and beauty as well as teleology and organic nature. Her most recent book, Herder’s Naturalist Aesthetics, is forthcoming with Cambridge University Press in 2019. She is currently working on a collection of essays treating various topics in eighteenth-century Scottish aesthetics.
