Pittsburgh Summer Symposium in Contemporary Philosophy:
Schelling and Naturphilosophie
In recent years there has been a surge of research on Schelling, aided in the English speaking world by a number of recent translations. This movement has included reexaminations of Schelling as a figure in the history of philosophy, as a source of influence on a number of twentieth century thinkers, and as a rich resource for addressing contemporary philosophical debates. This summer symposium will bring together an international group of graduate students, postdoctoral students, and junior faculty for a week of discussion, lecture, and close textual study concerning this important philosopher. We will examine questions about nature, objectivity, matter, life, knowledge, and whether or not transcendental philosophy can be reconciled with the findings of the empirical sciences.
