Abstract Summerscool

Tübingen plays a crucial role in the development of German idealism, since three of its main protagonists – Hegel, Schelling, Hölderlin – took up their philosophical and theological studies here in the 1780s. The Philosophy Department at the University of Tübingen has a long tradition of influential research in the philosophy of Kant and German idealism. Building on this tradition, we are running a biannual series of international summer schools on Kant and German idealism. By bringing together experts and students from all over the world, we aim to provide a space for dialogue between the German philosophical tradition of close textual work and the traditional Anglo-American focus on rigorous systematic argument.

In 2020, Tübingen is celebrating the 250th birthday of Hölderlin and Hegel. Accordingly, the focus of the summer school in this year is on their philosophical thought. We follow Hölderlin’s intellectual trajectory and try to understand how it is in dialogue with Hegel’s development. We also aim at highlighting some of the most important stages in the progress of Hegel’s thought. The topics range from speculative and metaphysical reflection (beginning with the criticism of Fichte’s model of the self) to conceptions of religion and the divine, poetological meta-comments and interpretations of what is tragic. We analyze how Hölderlin’s approach to poetry is located in the context of German Idealism and why Hegel follows a different path – a path that does not assign the most fundamental role to poetry or art, but to philosophy grounded in speculative logic.
