Philosophy @ UWS would like to invite you to

New Perspectives on Kant: A Symposium<http://www.uws.edu.au/philosophy/philosophy@uws/events/sponsored_conferences/kant_symposium>

Date & Time: Monday 18 August, 9.00am-4.30pm
Location: Bankstown, Building 5, Meeting Room 05.G.24

The influence of Immanuel Kant's work on philosophy and the Humanities in general has been sustained across more than two centuries, but earlier orthodox understandings and glosses, focused on major texts and central concepts, have now given way to careful analysis of less obvious but important notions, which also have implications for contemporary philosophy. In particular, closer examination of various texts, which have been neglected in the past, such as the Anthropology  and the writings on religion, has opened up new interpretive directions. This seminar brings together scholars working on Kant with the goal of emphasising new perspectives and interpretative angles.
