Philosophy Conference at UCR

By Briana Van Havermaat, Student Intern of CHASS College Computing

The 16th Annual Philosophy Conference is being held on February 24th and 25th. The topic for this year’s conference is “Normativity & Universality from a Kantian Perspective.”

The topic is somewhat broad for this conference so as an alternative to inviting Kant scholars, the conference will include prominent philosophers who have been influenced in their own work by Kant and who also bring a philosophical perspective to Kant’s work in ethics, aesthetics, epistemology and metaphysics.

They will examine how cognitive activities in these different areas of philosophy can be brought together under the pretext of their normative structure. They will explore topics that include the role of norms and general principles in perception, in our cognition of abstract entities, in moral appraisal and in the more general appraisal of action.

The Conferences take place in the Humanities and Social Sciences Building, Room 1500.

For more information and dates regarding the conference please visit the philosophy website.
