*Nature and Culture in German Romanticism and Idealism*
 UNSW Australia and the University of Sydney
 12-14 March

 The last two decades can be described as witness to a genuine revival of
interest in German romantic and idealist philosophy. Philosophers working
in a variety of areas have embraced the ideas of the romantics and
idealists, disentangling them from false or misunderstood legacies, and
reexamining them in light of contemporary debates. This conference aims to
advance this significant historical and philosophical research, by
investigating the two most central themes in German idealist and romantic
philosophy: nature and culture and their interdependence.

 Precisely because of the interdisciplinary character of romanticism and
idealism, the conference approaches the two movements from a number of
related angles. In the first instance, the goal is to consider how various
thinkers from the romantic era conceived nature and culture, and sought to
harmonize the sphere of the natural sciences (*Naturwissenschaften*) and
the sphere of the humanities (*Geisteswissenschaften*), which, only some
fifty years later, became fully separated. In addition, the conference
seeks to investigate the interdisciplinary conception of "Geist" developed
during that time, which today can be translated into "mind" as well as its
various externalizations as "society," "arts," "institutions," and
"culture." In these two ways, the conference will explore the uniqueness of
the romantic and idealist views, and consider their potential significance
for contemporary debates.
