745 Commonwealth Ave. (STH) Room 325
The workshop is a forum for presenting new work on philosophy from the late eighteenth century through the early twentieth century. The 2013 Workshop will focus on history’s relevance for philosophy. Speakers might address the role of historical, genealogical, and narrative explanation in philosophical arguments; the possibility that historical or genealogical arguments provide a unique method of philosophical critique; the way in which historical approaches to philosophy disclose new philosophical problems; the relevance of conjectural or fanciful histories in philosophical argumentation; and the views of particular philosophers, including Rousseau, Herder, Hegel, Marx, and Nietzsche, on history’s relation to philosophy.
