Bernstein to Give Lecture in England on Autonomy and Obligation in Moral Philosophy of Immanuel Kant

Dr. Alyssa R. Bernstein, Professor of Philosophy at Ohio University, will travel to England in March to give an invited lecture on autonomy and obligation in the moral philosophy of Immanuel Kant, as part of the 2018 Jean-Jacques Rousseau Annual Conference, which will take place at the University of Keele in England.

Pauline Kleingeld, professor at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, will give the annual Rousseau Lecture. The other three invited speakers are: 
Mark Timmons, professor at the University of Arizona; Jens Timmermann, professor at the University of St Andrews in Scotland; and Sorin Baiasu, professor at the University of Keele in England.

All of the speakers will discuss the Categorical Imperative and other fundamental ideas in Kant’s moral philosophy. The annual lecture and conference are organized with the support of the British Academy Newton Advanced Fellowship “Dealing Critically with Conflicts between Deep Commitments: A Dual Critical-Hermeneutic Approach” (co-held by Sorin Baiasu and Dr. Ruhi Demiray), the University of Keele School of Politics, Philosophy, International Relations and Environment (SPIRE), and the Keele-Oxford-St. Andrews Kantian (KOSAK) Research Centre.
