Post-Kantian European Philosophy

The Working Group in Post-Kantian European Philosophy seeks to promote the study of texts and themes in the post-Kantian philosophical tradition(s). The group encompasses various strands of nineteenth- and twentieth-century European thought, with emphasis on German idealism, Marxisms, the existential and phenomenological traditions, and critical theory. The working group provides a forum for cross-departmental conversation and collaboration, and a space for the discussion of thinkers that figure prominently across diverse disciplines and methodologies, including, but not limited to, Comparative Literature, English, French, Germanic Languages and Literatures, Philosophy, and Religious Studies.

The group hosts two to three speakers a semester to present their research, as well as a monthly works-in-progress colloquium for Yale graduate students, postdocs, and faculty. Interested participants from all disciplinary backgrounds are welcome.
