TRANSCENDENTAL PHILOSOPHY AND NATURALISM
Organizer: Andrea Staiti, Università di Parma
Leading international scholars will explore the connections and tensions between two leading and seemingly anthitetical philosophical standpoints: Naturalism and transcendental philosophy. The former is often described as the view that only nature, i.e., the subject matter of natural science existsand/or that the method of natural science is the only acceptable method ofrational inquiry. Transcendental philosophers, on the contrary, maintain that not all that there is in the world canbe explained in naturalistic terms, inparticular, that some key aspects ofcognition and consciousness are presupposed, rather than explained by natural science. Recently, however, the gap between these two standpoints has been reconsidered and the possibility or impossibility to integrate naturalistic and transcendental perspectives is a central fixture of contemporary philosophy.
