Ort: Universität Genf, Schweiz
Beginn: 02.12.2021 15:00
Ende: 04.12.2021 11:30

For Bolzano and Brentano, as well as their many students and grand students, including Husserl, the practice of philosophy and the study of its history were intimately combined. Texts of past thinkers, ancient, medieval or modern, were seen as containing various debates commensurable to those taking place among Austro-German authors themselves. From Plato to Hegel, the philosophical tradition was approached both as a source of inspiration and something to engage with critically.

This conference aims to explore the relation of the Austro-German tradition to the history of philosophy. It will gather scholars active in the field of the Austro-German tradition and specialists of ancient, medieval and modern philosophy, who will be invited to evaluate the various borrowings and critics that Austro-German authors have made from authors of the past.

Speakers: Klaus Corcilius (Tübingen), Francesco Fronterotta (Sapienza), Charles Girard (Genève), Katerina Ierodiakonou (Genève), Colin King (Providence/Basel), Martin Lenz (Groningen), Ursula Renz (Graz), Sonja Schierbaum (Würzburg), Stephan Schmid (Hamburg), Jacob Schmutz (Louvain-la-Neuve)


Organisers: Laurent Cesalli (Genève), Hélène Leblanc (Louvain-la-Neuve), Claudio Majolino (Lille), Hamid Taieb (HU Berlin)

Time: starts at 3pm on December 2, ends at 11:30am on December 4.
