Society for German Idealism

Society for German Idealism





The primary purpose of the Society for German Idealism is to stimulate interdisciplinary scholarship on the philosophies of the German idealists -- chiefly but not exclusively: Kant, Fichte, Hegel, and Schelling -- and to afford an opportunity for international exchange of research on German idealism. The Society for German Idealism encourages: (1) interdisciplinary scholarship on the history of German idealism; (2) interdisciplinary scholarship on the writings and biographies of the German idealists; and (3 ) the furtherance of original philosophical thought which has its basis in the philosophy (philosophies) of one (or more) of the German idealists, or which treats issues in the style, manner, or method of one (or more) of the German idealists.
