Submitted Abstract

Contemporary Kantian philosophy (CKP) provides a truly unique opportunity for philosophical interactive collaboration and knowledge exchange between North American researchers and European researchers who are trained in both the historical study of Kant’s philosophy and also the methods of contemporary Analytic philosophy; and the University of Luxembourg is ideally intellectually constituted and geographically placed to be the site of this collaboration and exchange. Correspondingly, the title of this project is “Contemporary Kantian Philosophy,” and during the academic year 2013-2014, it will consist in carrying out the first stage of a long term, three-stage exploration of Kantian themes in contemporary philosophy. This first stage has five parts. Part 1. Professor Hanna will be in residence in Luxembourg during the full academic year 13-14, and finish a book entitled Cognition, Content, and the A Priori: A Study in the Philosophy of Mind and Knowledge. A particularly important feature of this part of the project, and indeed a necessary condition of the successful completion of Cognition, Content, and the A Priori, will be the development and establishment by Professor Hanna and Professor Heidemann of the CKP research group, centered in the Dept. of Philosophy at the University of Luxembourg, and including both faculty and graduate students, who will constitute the “inner circle” of the group, but also including an “outer circle” of young philosophical researchers working at other European universities in Finland, Germany, Norway, and the United Kingdom. Each of the CKP researchers, whether internal or external, will pursue individual research projects on topics related closely to the central topics of Cognition, Content, and the A Priori. Hence the completion of Cognition, Content, and the A Priori will necessarily, directly, and substantively reflect the collaborative interactions and exchanges of knowledge between Professor Hanna, Professor Heidemann, and all of the internal and external members of the CKP research group .
