With the launch of our website, the set-up phase of the Center is complete. During the summer 2022, the center will host its first major events, a conference on the Wickedness of Freedom, a workshop on Natural Histories of the Human Mind, and the 2022 Fines Hominis Lecture delivered by Prof. Andrea Kern. In the fall, our program will continue with an international conference on Politics of Nature, hosted by the ICI Berlin.
Recent years have seen a new wave of interesting work on post-Kantian philosophy, overcoming various dividing lines that have limited our perspective. The Potsdam Center for Post-Kantian Philosophy offers a new home to this critical engagement with the post-Kantian tradition in all of its diversity and complexity. It seeks to develop its insights and its limitations in relation to the pressing epistemic, social, political and ecological concerns of our time. To that end, the Center will host a variety of conferences, workshops and lecture series and will bring together a diverse group of international research fellows in Potsdam every year, working on individual and collaborative projects and elaborating what we can know, shall do, may hope.
