Who can apply?

  • This two-day conference invites participants from across nations and disciplines, to brainstorm on Kant's work, thought and philosophy.
  • Constitutional Morality and Kantian Justice: The concept of the Constitution is not an idea of positive law, but a Vernunftidee [an idea of reason], that is, it is not subject to written law, or in Kant's terms, empirical (or statutory) or positive law.
  • Science, Technology and Kant's Epistemology: Kant's pure rational cognition that is generated from concepts with metaphysics, contends that science requires a metaphysics of nature. The use of technology is permissible only when it finds its place in the light of culture and territory. Kant believed that philosophy is the "narrow gate" that connects to the world at large.
  • Kant And Nature: An organized product of nature is that in which all the parts are mutual ends and means. Kant advocated Doctrine of Virtue that one should not be cruel to animals and destroy the flora. Humans have direct duties only to themselves and other human beings. Kant has also emphasized the integral role that Ethics and Morality play on Human Determination.
  • Kant And Personal Justice: Considering a person as an object to satisfy the appetite of a person is a degradation of human nature. Immanuel Kant in his metaphysics of morals came out with a theory of property rights. His assertions on the Universal principle of right led to discussions on the property rights of individuals.
  • Kant And Criminal Justice: Better the whole people perish than injustice be done. Kant states that guilt is the necessary condition for the infliction of punishment. He also added that the punishment of the innocent is conceptual and moral pathology. It is largely to avoid such a punishment that Kant inveighs against private revenge, vigilantism, war, and any other activity, which allows a disputant to judge his own case and punish according to his own biased decision.
  • Kant And International Relations: Kant is hailed as the greatest of all theorists in the field of International Relations (IR), his theories provide a lasting effect in the understanding of IR in the modern context.
