The 300th anniversary of the publication of Christian Wolff’s Vernünfftige Gedancken von der Menschen Thun und Lassen (Deutsche Ethik) is an excellent occasion to take a fresh look at the text. This is especially true given Wolff’s practical philosophy is still somewhat neglected by scholars of many varieties, at least compared to his theoretical philosophy. This conference aims at remedying this deficiency by exploring systematically pertinent issues in Wolff’s ‘German Ethics,’ such as the question of how perfection relates to happiness, the role of pleasure in (moral) motivation, and Wolff’s conception of normativity and ‘natural obligation.’


Call for Papers: In addition to the above invited presentations, scholars and students of all levels who are working on topics directly related to Wolff’s Deutsche Ethik are invited to submit a proposal which will be considered for inclusion in the conference program. Please send an abstract of approximately 500 words to michael.walschots [at] phil.uni-halle.de by January 31st, 2020
