CfP: Kant in Africa and Africa in Kant - Critical Philosophy in African Culture and Thought

E-Mail Adresse für Einreichungen: marita.rainsborough@leuphana.de
Call-Bezeichnung: Call for Papers
Deadline: 31. August 2021
Name der Publikation: Thematic Issue of the Journal 'Estudos Kantianos'
Veranstaltende Institution: São Paulo State University, Brazil

Immanuel Kant devotes his thought to the diversity and unity of humanity both in the natural and cultural domains, especially through the foundation or, at least, renovation, of two complementary disciplines: Geography and Anthropology. Thinking of Africa based on Kantian philosophy is an exercise that exposes essential tensions, inherent in questioning the meaning of universality and particularity, egalitarianism and cosmopolitan justice. From the angle of the critical power of human reason, one can find Kantian resonances in the ideas of freedom and liberation that animate all contemporary African cultural and philosophical expressions.

By inviting the academic community to participate in this thematic issue, we intend to stimulate the reevaluation and reinterpretation of Kantian thought, taking African culture and history as the guiding thread of our common research, in order to destabilize and broaden the Copernican Revolution of the critical subject with the concrete inscription of African otherness in the plural subjectivity of humanity.


We are looking forward receiving your submissions until August 31, 2021. Papers can be written in German, Spanish, French, English, Italian and Portuguese. You will find further information in the uploaded file.
