12th Kant-Readings International Conference

Kant and the Ethics of Enlightenment: Historical Roots and Contemporary Relevance


The Kant-Readings Conference has taken place in Kaliningrad since 1974. This 2019 conference aims at investigating the ethical conceptions of the Enlightenment from the perspective of Kant’s philosophy. We are interested in understanding the moral aims of the Enlightenment, and the role of Kant’s philosophy in how the enlightenment project extends beyond its initial epoch. How has Kant’s moral philosophy been received, and how has it influenced the evolution of enlightenment thought in other countries, especially in Russia? To what extent can Kant’s philosophy be fruitful for thinking about ethics and enlightenment in our time? What can Kantian philosophy offer to address the current and prospective challenges, produced by technological advancement?
