The German idealists had a great interest in Aristotle’s Metaphysics. In this conference, speakers will explore the German idealists’ ways of pursuing philosophical questions they found in Aristotle. For example, is there an argument from the claim that thought is self-referential to the conclusion that thought must be pure activity? Are there other arguments for the conclusion that there must be an absolute or a God that is an unmoved mover or pure actuality? Should we conclude from Aristotelian considerations either that a kind of thought—thought thinking itself—is absolute? Or rather that there are limitations of thought?
