    This is a first call for papers for the 2017 meeting of the Southern Study Group of NAKS. The meeting will be a themed conference on Kant’s conception of freedom. The selection committee welcomes any paper on this topic, whether it refers to Kant’s writings on theoretical or practical philosophy, and whether it is oriented towards a historical or systematic understanding of Kant’s notion of freedom. Ideally, papers will be around 4000 words long. Selected papers may be submitted to the NAKS Rethinking Kant series for publication, and manuscripts by graduate students will be considered for the Markus Herz Prize.

    CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: HUSSERL, KANT, AND THE TRANSCENDENTAL PHENOMENOLOGY


    Submission deadlines:

    Title and abstract (5-800 words): Feb 28, 2017.  

    Final Paper (7-10,000 words): Jan. 15, 2018.

    Date of publication will be Fall 2018.


    Transcendental phenomenology is not simply a theory about the structure of (inter)subjectivity, nor is it merely a discourse about how we understand and perceive the natural world and our sense-constitutive activities and passivities. It is not even a theory about how the world appears to us, if such a theory is supposed to be complemented by a further investigation (left to metaphysics) of what the world itself is like. Transcendental phenomenology aims  to  answer  the  following  question:  “in  what  way  is  the  being  of  the world,  the  world,  which  is  for  me  and  could  be  for  me,  grounded  in  my intending, in my streaming experiencing and otherwise conscious life, and in my enduring features”? (Edmund  Husserl, Husserliana XXXIV: 244)

    Despite of a long tradition  of  invocation and discussion of Husserl’s transcendental thinking, the deep meaning of the idea of a transcendental constitution of consciousness  remains even  today  troublingly  obscure. We would like to take Husserl’s references seriously and reflect on the following topics:

    ·       The Kantian and the Husserlian notion of the transcendental ego

    ·       The distinction between the transcendental and the natural, the transcendental and the psychological, the transcendental and the anthropological

    ·       Husserl’s notion of a world-annihilation

    ·       Husserl’s mature transcendental phenomenology

    ·       The idea of transcendental logic

    ·       The transcendental foundation of the natural sciences

    ·       The relation of transcendental phenomenology to post-Kantian philosophies

    ·       Eugen Fink and the critique of transcendental reason
