About the Congress 

The 14th International Kant Congress is hosted by the Kant Society (Germany) and the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University in Kaliningrad. In commemoration of the 300th anniversary of Kant’s birth, the conference theme is “The World Concept of Philosophy.”

Kant uses the idea of a “world concept of philosophy” at the end of the Critique of Pure Reason to refer to his philosophical system and its architectural structure. It is concerned with the inner connection between all the spheres covered by Kant’s philosophy. It is meant to inspire a discussion of “what necessarily interests every person,” including the ultimate principles of a good, just and meaningful life. Yet this notion of a World Concept of Philosophy may also refer to the cosmopolitan character of Kant’s philosophy.
