Johann Gottfried Herder: Reasoning Across Disciplines

Workshop 26-29.05.10 in Rosendal: Johann Gottfried Herder’s teaching has helped shape virtually every discipline within the humanities and the social sciences. This workshop, which is open to scholars and PhD students alike, will address Herder’s interdisciplinary idea of reason through posing a number of issues: It addresses Herder’s call for a closer relationship between art history and philosophical aesthetics, his theory of music and emotions, his call for an anthropological turn in philosophy, his historicism, his hopes for a world-literature, as well as his cosmopolitan aspirations. The speakers are all distinguished by the interdisciplinary nature of their research as well as their ability to combine a historical and systematic focus of scholarship. Read more
