Powers, dispositions, and abilities play a key role in early modern philosophy. They are invoked in many debates, ranging from metaphysics and natural philosophy to ethics and political philosophy. But what exactly are they? How can they be individuated? And what kind of explanatory function do they have in different contexts? The goal of the workshop is to deal with these problems by analyzing them both in theoretical and practical philosophy. We invite abstracts of no more than 500 words on the topic Powers, Dispositions, and Abilities in Early Modern Philosophy (construed, roughly, as the period from Montaigne to Reid) for a workshop co-organized by the philosophy departments of Humboldt University Berlin and Hamburg University (HU-UHH). The workshop aims to bring together established scholars, junior faculty, and advanced graduate students. The language of presentation and discussion is English. Talks should be 35-40 minutes long, followed by 30-35 minutes of discussion. Please submit documents in PDF format to hu.uhh.earlymodern@gmail.com. The abstract should be prepared for blind review (please provide your name, contact details, and institutional affiliation in a separate document). Confirmed keynote speakers are Jennifer Maruši? (Brandeis University and Humboldt University) and Markus Schrenk (Heinrich Heine Universität Düsseldorf).
