Circular for the Attention of the International Kant Societies

Dear colleagues,

in what follows I would like to inform you of the present state of planning for the 14th International Kant Congress.

  1.  The members of the German Kant Society / Kant-Gesellschaft e.V. have decided at their meeting on 19. October, 2019, that the 14th International Kant Congress in the year 2024 should take place in Kaliningrad, Russia. At a meeting on 16. October, 2020 the Board of the Kant-Gesellschaft e.V. has formed an organisation committee consisting of 12 persons. It is made up of 6 colleagues from the Board and 6 colleagues jointly from the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University of Kaliningrad and the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow).
  2.  Prof. Dr. Nina A. Dmitrieva (Scientific Director of the Academia Kantiana, Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University, Kaliningrad) is responsible for the organisation of the Congress in co-operation with the Kant-Gesellschaft e.V.
  3.  The Congress will take place in the week beginning 22. April, 2024 (Kant’s 300th birthday).
  4.  The title of the Congress is: “The Cosmological Concept of Philosophy. Immanuel Kant 1724 – 2024”.

The expression “The Cosmological Concept of Philosophy” at the end of the Critique of Pure Reason refers to the whole of the Kantian system and its architectural structure. It is concerned with the inner connection between all the disciplines covered by Kant’s philosophy. The cosmological concept of philosophy inspires discussion of “what necessarily interests every person” (B 868). This means the ultimate principles of a good, just and meaningful life. As title of an international congress this expression is to be taken in a wider sense and is to be seen in relationship to the cosmopolitan character of Kant’s philosophy.

The Academia Kantiana of the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University Kaliningrad The Academia Kantiana was founded in the year 2017 as part of the Russian Academic Excellence Project. The research institute is devoted to the furthering of Kantian research in Russia and the cultivation of exchange between philosophy in Russia and international academic bodies. The scientific activities of the Academia Kantiana include the research projects of its members, conferences, summer schools, a lecture series “Kant-Lectures” and the international research team “Kantian Rationality Lab”. In addition, the Academia Kantiana regularly publishes the Kantian Journal.
