De Gruyter has a long history of publishing Kant scholarship and embraces philosophical work in the Kantian tradition in the broadest sense. To promote and foster the Kantian legacy, the Walter De Gruyter Stiftung—an independent foundation that holds shares in De Gruyter—has made a grant to the American Philosophical Association to organize an annual Walter de Gruyter Stiftung Kant Lecture Series for a period of five years beginning in 2013 with possibility for renewal. The De Gruyter Stiftung explicitly intends the Walter de Gruyter Stiftung Kant Lecture Series to be open to a broad approach to Kantian philosophy across the philosophical disciplines. This may also include contemporary philosophical work in the Kantian tradition.The Walter de Gruyter Stiftung Kant Lecture Series are offered every year at a divisional meeting on a rotating basis.
The APA is pleased to announce the lecturers for the upcoming series:
The 2013-2014 lecturer is Henry Allison (University of California, San Diego), who will present his lecture at the 2014 Pacific Division meeting in San Diego, CA.
The 2014-2015 lecturer is Karl Ameriks (University of Notre Dame), who will present his lecture at the 2014 Eastern Division meeting in Philadelphia, PA.
