An independent international centre for advanced studies
In 1809 Schelling published the essay, which has remained up-to-date to the present days: Über das Wesen der menschlichen Freiheit und die damit zusammenhängenden Gegenstände (Philosophical Investigations into the Essence of Human Freedom and Matters Connected Therewith). In this essay Schelling deals with the question of the origin and the substance of freedom as well as he seeks to conceptualize its consequence, the opposition of good and evel. The conference sees itself as a continuation of the online seminar that took place in May 2021 on IUC Dubrovnik, in which the participants were able to conduct an intensive text discussion of the Freiheitsschrift on the basis of presentations and selected reading. Part two of the seminar deals with the sources and the reception of Schelling's text. With senior speakers the conference will be attended by advanced students, doctoral students and postdocs.
