In his critical philosophy, Kant argues that the central principles guiding our mind have a peculiar status. They are neither analytic nor a posteriori but rather synthetic a priori. But how can we distinguish between valid and invalid principles that share that status? Moreover, according to Kant, some of these synthetic a priori principles are the normative basis for the validity of our judgments about the world, on one hand, and our volitions, on the other. How does Kant justify his controversial claims about synthetic principles a priori–from the principles of the understanding to the categorical imperative to civil rights in a state? The task of the 2020 summer school will be to explore and evaluate Kant’s account of the normativity of those laws and principles. The guiding thread of our lectures and seminars will be marked by the following related questions: (1) how does Kant argue for (deduce) their binding force, or validity, and (2) is there a middle ground between realism and constructivism with respect to Kant’s idea of our reason’s self-legislation?

The summer school will focus on the analysis of central passages from Kant’s works (and a few others), including but not limited to the Critique of Pure Reason, the Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science, the Critique of Practical Reason, and his essay on Perpetual Peace.

The summer school consists of lectures, seminars, and readings. Within the framework of the summer school, there will also be a scientific conference, in which participants will give their own presentations on a research topic related to Kant’s philosophy, and discuss it with colleagues from different universities of Russia and the world.

Study: full-time (preliminary)

Accommodation: hotel in Svetlogorsk, Kaliningrad region (covered by the school’s sponsor)

Outcomes:

  • ability to analyze key ideas and the most complex concepts of Kantian philosophy;
  • improvement of skills in working with primary sources;
  • expanding the scientific horizon of young scientists by immersing in the European tradition of research and teaching;
  • establishing professional links among young scientists.

Participants receive a certificate of participation.

Who can apply: Ph.D. students who defended their graduation paper after 2018, undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate students; Upper-Intermediate English language skills; selection on a competitive basis (based on the results of the evaluation of a motivational letter in English, 350-400 words and abstract of the report, 1200-1400 words, including the list of references).

Documents for Application:

Questionnaire;

Motivational Letter (in English, 350-400 words);

Abstract on the topic of your presentation related to the theme of the summer school (in English, 1200-1400 words of the main text, plus references, see: Harvard System of Referencing (6th edition))
