How is Metaphysics Possible? A Critique of Analytic Reason

Book Symposium with Nick Stang

How is Metaphysics Possible? A Critique of Analytic Reason

Do contemporary metaphysicians have an answer to the original Kantian question, an explanation of how their discipline is possible? Or did analytic philosophy return to pre-Kantian, un-critical, so-called ‘dogmatic’ metaphysics without answering the original Kantian critique?

On Menke’s account, freedom and domination are indissolubly intertwined, and liberation is not the prehistory of freedom, but freedom’s mode of actualization. This is illustrated by two exemplary liberation narratives: the Exodus narrative from Genesis 2 and the story of Walter White in the television series Breaking Bad.

Natural Histories of the Human Mind

From Kant to Benjamin

Natural Histories of the Human Mind

What does it mean to argue that the human mind can only be understood on the basis of its natural history? It is a common notion that the project of such a natural history aims at a reductive explanation of the human mind. The workshop investigates Kant and the post-Kantian tradition in order to explore a different notion of natural history. With Sabina Bremner, Andrew Cooper, Illit Ferber, Eli Friedlander, Johannes Haag, Matthias Haase, Th. Khurana, Daniele Lorenzini, and others.
