Neo-Kantianism Before and After: The History of Philosophy and the Philosophy of History
6th annual USF Graduate Student Philosophy Conference: Call for Papers
Conference Dates: March 29th and 30th, 2013
Keynote Speaker: Iain Thomson (University of New Mexico)
Faculty Address: Stephen Turner (University of South Florida)
Arising in the latter 19th century and pushing on into the 20th century, neo-Kantianism played a significant role in shaping the landscapes of both philosophy and the sciences in general. The neo-Kantian school influenced many, disparate schools of thought from Heidegger and Phenomenology to logical positivism and the Vienna circle to the social sciences of the 20th century. These effects continue to be seen today. As a result, there has been a increasing interest in neo-Kantianism in recent scholarship.
We welcome papers on any topic, but will give special consideration to papers focusing on neo-Kantianism and its historical contexts, including papers focusing on competing or alternative strands of thought active before, during, and after the reign of neo-Kantianism. Papers should be roughly 3000 words and prepared to be presented in 20 to 25 minutes. We will also consider panel proposals on a specific topic within the general theme of the conference. Panels should consist of three papers, each roughly 3000 words in length. For all accepted papers that are not part of a panel, we will provide comments to be read as part of a 10 to 15 minute Q and A session following each presentation. Accepted panels will have an expanded, joint Q and A.
Submission deadline: February 1st, 2013
Please note that, in addition to the general focus of the conference as outlined above, we will also accept graduate papers on any philosophical topic.
