Vorlesungsreihe / FAGI-Humboldt Lectures

Hegel on Agency

Fortsetzung der
Vorlesungsreihe zu Hegels Phänomenologie des Geistes
vom WiSe 2015/16, vom SoSe 2016 und vom SoSe 2017

Robert Brandom erklärt, was wir heute noch von Hegel lernen können. In seiner bald erscheinenden systematischen Interpretation der hegelschen Phänomenologie des Geistes bringt Brandom Hegel in einen fruchtbaren Dialog mit aktueller Handlungstheorie, Metaphysik, Sozialontologie und Sprachphilosophie. Brandom zeigt unter anderem, wie Hegel schon lange vor Wittgenstein nicht nur das grundlegende Problem des Regelfolgens klar gesehen hat, sondern auch eine Lösung vorschlägt, die auf der sozialen Natur von Normen beruht. Über etwa zwei Jahre hinweg wird Brandom sein gesamtes Manuskript in dieser Vorlesungsreihe – mit jeweils einigen Vorlesungen – vorstellen und mit Zuhörern diskutieren.</p

Die Vorlesungsreihe wird durch Brandoms Anneliese Maier-Forschungspreis der Humboldt Stiftung möglich gemacht und findet unter der Schirmherrschaft des Forschungskolleg Analytic German Idealism statt.

Die Vorlesungsreihe begann im Dezember 2015. Die bereits gehaltenen Vorträge vom Teil I, II und III können Sie auf der Seite des Forschungskolleg Analytic German Idealism (FAGI) nachhören.

Graduate Summer Course / FAGI-Humboldt

Robert Brandom (University of Pittsburgh)

A Spirit of Trust

Hegel on Agency

Robert Brandom is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. He did groundbreaking work in semantics, the philosophy of mind, and epistemology. Much of his work is inspired by Hegel and he is currently writing a book on Hegel.

The Course … Accompanies Brandom’s three lectures on the REASON chapter of Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit. Accordingly, the course will focus on Brandom’s reading of Hegel. Topics will include: What makes something an intentional doing? What does thinking about practical reasoning add to Hegel's account of conceptual content? How does Hegel think that the heroic conception of agency can be re-achieved in a post-modern form of practical self-consciousness structured by Vernunft instead of Verstand?

Conference: Philosophy of Right: Kant, Fic...
Zeit: von 09:00 bis 19:00 Uhr


This conference is the eighth in a series of Chicago/Leipzig summer Graduiertentagungen. It explores the different conceptions of the Philosophy of Right proposed by Kant, Fichte and Hegel. Each of them, in different ways, grounds the idea of right in the autonomy of practical reason. The keynote speakers at the conference will be Martin Stone, Katrin Flikschuh, Rafeeq Hasan, Frederick Neuhouser, Ben Laurence, and Japa Pallikkathayil. The other conference presentations will be by graduate students from the Departments of Philosophy at the University of Chicago and the University of Leipzig.

The conference is organized by Dawa Ometto (Leipzig) and Matthias Haase (Chicago).

Submissions: Graduate students at the universities of Leipzig and Chicago can apply for giving one of the presentations. In order to do so, please send a paper of up to 10000 words to dawa.ometto[at]uni-leipzig.de (for students at Leipzig) or mathis.koschel[at]gmail.com (for students at Chicago). The deadline is April, 30th, 2018. Submissions will be evaluated by two committees of faculty members — one at Leipzig and one at Chicago respectively. The final decision will be made jointly by both committees. You will be informed about the acceptance of your paper by June 1st, 2018.

Venue: Felix-Klein-Hörsaal of the Paulinum building, Augustusplatz 10, Leipzig

Keynote Speakers: Katrin Flikschuh (LSE)/ Frederick Neuhouser (Columbia)/ Ben Laurence (Chicago)/ Japa Pallikkathayil (Pittsburgh)/ Rafeeq Hasan & Martin J. Stone (Amherst & Cardozo)

Graduate Conference: Teleological Structures in Hum...
Zeit: von 09:00 bis 19:00 Uhr


Over the last 40 years, Anselm W. Müller has published a number of important essays on topics such as practical reasoning, virtue, the distinction between making and acting, and the ends of theory and practice. One theme that runs through this work is an interest in the teleological structures that characterize human life. Müller argues that the way thought in general and practical thought in particular are for the sake of an end differs from both blind natural teleology, as we find it in the goal-directedness of the functioning of our organs, and intentional teleology, as we find it in intentional actions. Similarly, virtuous action is neither a blind functional contribution to the good human life, nor is such a life directly in view as an end when one acts virtuously. According to Müller, it is this peculiar directedness towards truth and the good life which elevates human life above mere nature and gives it a spiritual dimension

A collection of Müller’s essays, both published and hitherto unpublished material, is forthcoming and will be the basis of the workshop. A preliminary manuscript will be available in January 2018. The workshop will consist of a lecture by Müller and twelve sessions for presentations. Six of them will be given by established scholars, and the other six sessions are reserved for graduate students from the Universities of Chicago and Leipzig. It will be a pre-read workshop:c ontributions should be handed in two weeks before the workshop and will be made available to all participants. Sessions will start with a short introduction and will mostly be devoted to discussion.

The workshop is organized by Christian Kietzmann (Erlangen).
