Continental Drift? Modern European Philosophy in Britain Today

Seventh Annual Conference

After a period of growth during the 1990s, modern European philosophy in Britain has reached a watershed in its institutional development. This conference aims to reassert its significance as a central part of philosophy in Britain and an important and lively presence within a range of other intellectual disciplines.

Most discussion of the post-Kantian European or 'continental' tradition has focused upon either its relations to analytical and post-analytical work, or the scholarly issues involved in appropriating particular thinkers into the context of the English-speaking philosophical community. In contrast, this conference invites the most prominent figures working within the tradition polemically to address the philosophical project with which they are associated, in order to produce a collective snapshot of the field, as a field of philosophical practices.
