Title: Stephen Gauckroger (Sydney)
Science, Neo-Kantianism, and the End of Enlightenment
Philosophy was redefined in Germany in the second half of the nineteenth  
century. The issues arose initially due to claims that science exhausted  
everything that could be known, and consequently philosophy could no longer  
continue to play any role in our understanding of the world. In finding a  
new role for philosophy, the influential Neo-Kantian Hermann Cohen  
construed it as form of clarification and systematization of science, of  
which it now effectively formed an essential part: philosophy completes  
science, by establishing its unity on an a priori basis. I explore the  
strengths and weaknesses of this approach, focusing on the period after the  
World War I, when the aspirations of a scientifically-driven Enlightenment  
came to be seen by many as ineffectual and empty.
