International scientific seminar "German and Russian Neo-Kantianism"
24 March at 15:00 MSK
The concept of neo-Kantianism is associated with the names of representatives of the Marburg and Baden schools. In what sense can the idea of phenomenology be seen as a continuation of the Kantian tradition of the critique of reason?
The starting point of the argument is the confession made by Ernst Cassirer during the Davos dispute in 1929:
"I discovered in Heidegger a neo-Kantian, which I could not have expected in him."
According to Heidegger's thesis, the defining basis of the neo-Kantian movement is the interpretation of the Critique of Pure Reason as a theory of knowledge. Heidegger treats the first Critique as an ontology.
It is assumed that the main themes of Kant's system of critique of reason indicated here were further developed in the studies of the founders of the phenomenological movement. The task, therefore, will be to show what actual steps were taken in phenomenology to justify the Kantian idea of metaphysics as a rigorous research project, and what possible horizons were anticipated by the idea of such a project.
