Seminar “Kunstkritik” – Naples, 7-8 November, 2011

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

On 7 and 8 November, 2011, the University of Naples “L’Orientale” will host a conference on Ernst Cassirer. Participants will include Fabien Capeillères (Université de Caen), Steve G. Lofts (King’s University College at The University of Western Ontario) and Stephen Watson (University of Notre Dame, Indiana). The seminar will address boundary questions concerning the philosophy of symbolic forms and the artistic theories of the nineteenth century, from a historical-philosophical as well as aesthetical and theoretical perspective. The keyword “Kunstkritik” – in its meaningfulness and problematic translation as “art criticism” or “critique of art”, in its philosophical matrix –  may provide a thread for our reflection.
