Yes we Kant! Critical reflections on objectivity: its meaning, its limitations, its fateful omissions
The aim of this three-day international workshop is to present and exchange various critical viewpoints on objectivity and subjectivity, and to more specifically focus on the various interpretations of necessity in its relation to contingency. This approach on the matter can find inspiration in Kant’s third Critique, but this source of inspiration should certainly not be considered as the only possible one. Husserl’s gesture to extrapolate the co-constitutive relation between objectivity and subjectivity to history is but one example of objectivity seen from a dynamical, contingently, historically and subjectively grounded background, the life-world. The meeting is open to explore other backgrounds.
