May 2015 – Joint Edinburgh-St Andrews Kant Reading Group

The Normativity of Nature

This spring the Kant Reading Group will be discussing extracts from Hannah Ginsborg’s new book The Normativity of Nature: Essays on Kant’s Critique of Judgement, which aims to ‘[bring] out the philosophical significance of the notion of judgement which figures in the third Critique and [show] its importance to both Kant’s own theoretical philosophy to contemporary views of human thought and cognition’. In line with our project, we’ll have a particular focus on how this relates to Kant’s philosophy of biology.
