9. Berliner Kantkurs

Daniel Sutherland
Kant’s Mathematical World

June 24–26, 2021

 

The “Berliner Kantkurs” is a regular three-day seminar in which internationally renowned researchers present their own recent work on Kant's philosophy, its impact on the history of philosophy, or its reception in contemporary philosophy. This year's guest will be Daniel Sutherland from the University of Illinois Chicago, who will present his reconstruction of Kant's philosophy of mathematics.

 

The seminar is aimed at interested advanced students and professional philosophers from Berlin and elsewhere. This year it will be held in digital form. Registration is required for participation (kantkurs2021@gmail.com). Registered participants will be provided with the Zoom link and the reading material for the course.
