Institute for the History of Philosophy Workshop

Kant's Political Thought

June 5-17, 2016 Emory University Atlanta, GA

Co-Chairs: Dilek Huseyinzadegan (Emory) and Angelica Nuzzo (CUNY)

POSTER

IHP

 The Institute for the History of Philosophy (IHP ) will host its 8th annual summer workshop on June 5–17, 2016, on the topic of “Kant’s Political Thought.” IHP Summer Workshops are designed to bring together a group of faculty scholars specializing

in specific areas of the history of philosophy for seminars focused around a shared reading list. Ten participants and the co-directors meet in mornings and afternoons over the course of two four-day weeks for discussions based upon close readings.

The workshop format eschews the delivery of conference-style papers in favor of open, groupbased engagement. In so doing, the IHP seeks to foster conversations that will inform future scholarly work. The IHP ’s past workshops have focused

on figures and themes such as: Aristotle on the Emotions; Renewing the Ancient Quarrel: Plato, Hegel, Adorno; Peirce, James, and the Origins of Pragmatism; Vico and the Humanist Tradition; Montaigne and the Origins of Modernity; Nietzsche

and Heidegger on the Issue of History; and Religion and Philosophy in Neoplatonism. This year’s meeting will consider Kant’s political thought in relation to its contemporary implications and legacy. We will attempt to tease out the relationship

between Kant’s political philosophy and his writings on history, geography, and anthropology. A few texts by other authors will also supplement our discussions.

Third Biennial Meeting of the North American Kant Society

May 27-29, 2016 Emory University Conference Center Atlanta, GA

IHP Summer Seminar

Aristotle on the Emotions

June 14-26, 2015 Emory University Atlanta, GA

The Emory University Institute for the History of Philosophy (IHP) will host its seventh annual summer workshop on June 14–26, 2015, on the topic of "Aristotle on the Emotions."

Organizers: Marta Jimenez and Christof Rapp (Ludwig Maximilians Universität Munich)
Location: Emory University, 214 Bowden Hall

 IHP Summer Workshops are designed to bring together a group of faculty scholars specializing in specific areas of the history of philosophy for seminars focused around a shared reading list. Ten participants and the co-directors meet in mornings and afternoons over the course of two four-day weeks for discussions based upon close readings. The workshop format eschews the delivery of conference-style papers in favor of open, group-based engagement. In so doing, the IHP seeks to foster conversations that will inform future scholarly work. The IHP's past workshops have focused on themes and figures such as: Renewing the Ancient Quarrel: Plato, Hegel, Adorno; Peirce, James, and the Origins of Pragmatism; Vico and the Humanist Tradition; Montaigne and the Origins of Modernity; Nietzsche and Heidegger on the Issue of History; and Religion and Philosophy in Neoplatonism.

This year's readings will focus on Aristotle's conception of emotions and their role in moral psychology, the body/soul relationship, ethics, politics, rhetoric and dialectic. Our central texts include selections from Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, Eudemian Ethics, Rhetoric, and De Anima. A few other texts will supplement discussion.

The Institute is pleased to provide room, board, and travel expenses for all participants accepted into the workshop. Guests will be housed in The New Marriott Courtyard Decatur, in downtown Decatur, Georgia, a couple of miles from Emory's campus. Decatur is a vibrant town with several restaurants and bars, all within walking distance from the hotel. The hotel is also close to a MARTA stop, Atlanta's public train service. Participants will thus have access to other parts of Atlanta, including the airport. All hotel/campus transportation will be provided.

To apply, scholars should send a cover letter addressing the relevance of the topic and the author to their current and/or future scholarly work, and a CV to Professor Jimenez at the email address below. The application deadline is February 20th, 2015 with decisions announced by March 2nd, 2015.

The metaphysical thesis that such Forms as the Good or the Just enjoy an existence independent of human opinions or social arrangements is generally taken to entail the objectivity of certain human values.  Conference sessions will explore the metaphysical grounding for these values or for the virtues, method(s) of discovering and explicating the nature of moral values and virtues, and the means of coming to possess or partake in them, as found in Plato’s dialogues or in the Platonic tradition.
