This is the
inaugural workshop in a new annual series. The workshops are
designed to provide a venue for presenting new work on Late Modern
Philosophy (roughly the period from 1750 through 1900). Central
figures in this period include Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer,
Marx, and Nietzsche.
The 2011 Workshop focused on philosophical psychology and ethics.
Many of the papers explored topics such as the nature of agency, the
structure of the emotions, the constitution of the self, and the
relationship between psychological questions and ethical claims.
The Workshop provides speakers with an opportunity to receive
constructive feedback on work in progress. Papers are distributed
in advance. At the workshop, the participants give brief
summaries of their papers; this is followed by about an hour of
discussion per paper. The discussion is open to all audience
