Although Hegel’s "Science of Logic" constitutes the underpinning of his entire philosophical system, it has long suffered from surprising scholarly neglect. While his ideas on natural philosophy, political and practical philosophy, and epistemology have been tremendously influential in 19th and 20th century philosophy, they have been, and still are, often treated in isolation from the Logic, which is frequently disavowed as too 'speculative'. This workshop proposes to question such a disjunction, and to examine what light the Logic is apt to throw on the various fields over which Hegel’s thought has ranged.
The aim of our workshops is to present, in an informal yet public setting, various works in progress to an audience interested in debates revolving around German Idealism and adjacent topics, such as Kant and post-Kantian philosophy in general. If successful, the workshop may conceivably be developed into an annual event that would provide a forum for philosophical explorations into the thought of Hegel.
Papers to be given will be circulated one week before the workshop and should be read in advance. Speakers will only provide a brief introduction to their papers, thus freeing up valuable time for discussion.
