Schelling: Crisis and Critique

Fifth Annual Meeting of the North American Schelling Society: NASS 5

21-25 February 2017

Mexico City
Schelling emphasizes the connection between the critical method and the
notion of crisis as separation, decision, and judgment. He realizes that crisis is
constitutive of the critical enterprise and of philosophy in general. It is perhaps
no coincidence that Schelling also recognized the profound crisis of the idealist
project that he had grounded and sought to find new philosophical approaches
that would respond to the crisis of rational science.
The aim of the conference is to think about the connection between crisis and
critique, both in philosophy and in a general sense. Papers that address these
notions in Schellings thought are welcome. Furthermore, Schellings thought
often defines itself through the critique of other philosophers and in contrast to
them, as characterizes the fabric of debates we now call German Idealism. This
is another suggested perspective for contributions. Papers that aim to bring
Schelling into contemporary discussions to show how Schelling's thought might
be relevant, both historically and systematically, are also encouraged. Papers
may be presented in English, Spanish or German. Selected papers will have 20
minutes presentation time at the conference.
