TOPIC: Edmund Husserl and Ernst Cassirer belong to two seemingly incompatible strains of philosophy. The former is the founder of phenomenology, the latter one of the most prominent scholars of the Marburg School of Neo-Kantianism. In spite of this difference, one can notice in both authors an interesting convergence towards similar problems related to the philosophy of culture, such as:

- the constitution of cultural sense

- the experience of cultural object

- the phenomenon of expression (Ausdruck)

- understanding (Verstehen) of the other in the cultural world

- the nature of cultural subject(s).

CFP: We invite submissions of abstracts for a 20-minute presentation followed by a discussion. Papers may be submitted on any topic dealing with the abovementioned issues. Although one-side contributions to one or the other philosopher are also welcomed and accepted, priority will be given to papers which address points of continuity and/or discontinuity between Husserl’s and Cassirer’s philosophies of culture.

Please send an abstract in English or German (max 500 words), prepared for blind-review to marco.cavallaro@uni-koeln.de by the 1¬st of May 2019. The name of author as well as affiliation should be included in the email. Notification of acceptance will be given by the middle of May.
