Philosophical Responses to Empiricism in Kant, Hegel, and Sellars

A four-week seminar for college and university faculty exploring the philosophical responses to empiricism of Kant, Hegel, and the 20th-century American philosopher Wilfrid Sellars, to be held at the University of New Hampshire.

18th century empiricism evoked a radical response from Kant and Hegel, the German Idealists, emphasizing the agency involved in knowledge and experience. 20th century empiricism evoked a parallel response from Wilfrid Sellars that has left its mark on contemporary philosophy. Juxtaposing readings from historical and contemporary sources, the central issues in this seminar concern the nature of sensory experience, the concepts used to make sense of it, the possibility of radical conceptual change, the role of the empirical sciences in ontology, and the sources of the normativity essential to human agency. Participants will also present their work in progress to the group for discussion.
