Workshop: Kantian Insights into the Relation between Law and Ethical Commitments

Keele Philosophy Forum Annual Conference: Themes from the Work of Howard Williams

30 November 2014

Official Launch: Keele Centre for Kantian Studies in Association with Oxford University and University of St Andrews

The events are part of the Kant Festival organized by the Keele Forum for Philosophical Research and will take place under the aegis of the new Keele-Oxford-St Andrews Centre for Kantian Studies that will be officially launched on 30 November. The Kant Festival includes a workshop on the Kantian approach to the tensions between law and ethical commitments (a call for commentators and chairpersons for this event was circulated separately), as well as, after the workshop, the 'Jean-Jacques Rousseau' Annual Lecture given by Howard Williams.
