International conference
Herman Cohen in the History of Russian Philosophy

PFUR (Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia, Moscow) in cooperation with the Academia Kantiana of the IKBFU (Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University, Kaliningrad) is inviting you to the international conference “Herman Cohen in the History of Russian Philosophy”, dedicated to the 100th anniversary since the death of the Marburg philosopher Hermann Cohen.

Time: June 4-5, 2018
Place: PFUR, Moscow, Russia
Call for papers: March 1, 2018 deadline

Head of the Marburg School of Neo-Kantianism Herman Cohen is a symbolic figure for the history of Russian philosophy. And at the same time – mysterious. All who turn to the analysis of the role of this German thinker in the history of Russian philosophy of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, face a paradoxical, it would seem, situation. Despite the great authority among Russian philosophers, especially the young, who annually, beginning in 1895, supplemented the students from the Marburg master, and some began under his leadership the path to scientific heights with the defenses of dissertations (O. Buek, D. Gavronsky, N. Hartmann, S. Rubinshtein, etc.), a truly productive study of the creativity of Hermann Cohen in Russia before the revolution did not take place.

Requirements to abstracts: 600 words as Word-Document in Russian, English or German. The abstract should be sent to the e-mail address: belov_vn@rudn.university. The deadline of abstract submission: March 1, 2018. Selection results: March 31, 2018.
