Conditions of Experience

"Conditions of Experience"
International conference at the University of Aarhus, Denmark
March 26-27, 2009

Aarhus University is hosting a conference called “Conditions of Experience”. The conference is organized by the research unit Philosophical Hermeneutics (PHH) at Aarhus University and the Center for Subjectivity Research (CFS) at the University of Copenhagen.

The aim of the conference is to explore conditions of experience in the tradition of transcendental philosophy. Both recent phenomenological approaches and conceptions which have some connection to neo-pragmatism show a growing interest for the option of a transcendental approach. The perspective on this issue is therefore not historical; we want rather to challenge prominent recent thinkers to evaluate the possibility of transcendental thinking in the light of the philosophy of the 20th century.

Invited speakers (all confirmed) include: William Blattner (Washington); Steven Crowell (Houston); Günter Figal (Freiburg); Hans Fink (Aarhus); Stephen Houlgate (Warwick); Thomas Rentsch (Dresden); Thomas Schwarz Wentzer (Aarhus); Pirmin Stekeler-Weithofer (Leipzig); Dan Zahavi (Copenhagen).

The conference is open to anyone who is interested. Prior registration is required. Please register by sending an email to Morten Sørensen Thaning (
