Prof. Béatrice Longuenesse to deliver the 2016–17 Kant Lecture


NEWARK, Del. — Feb. 3, 2016 — The American Philosophical Association is pleased to announce that Professor Béatrice Longuenesse, Silver Professor of Philosophy at New York University, will deliver the 2016–2017 Walter de Gruyter Stiftung Kant Lecture at the 2017 APA Eastern Division meeting in Baltimore, MD.

The Walter de Gruyter Stiftung Kant Lecture Series is open to a broad approach to Kantian philosophy across the philosophical disciplines. The lecture, which includes a $1,500 monetary award plus travel costs not to exceed $1,500, is offered every year at an APA divisional meeting on a rotating basis.

Longuenesse's areas of research and interest are Kant, Hegel, modern philosophy, and philosophy of mind; she received her Ph.D. from the University of Paris-Sorbonne. Her books include Kant and the Capacity to Judge, a revised and expanded version of Kant et le Pouvoir de Juger, Kant on the Human Standpoint, and Hegel’s Critique of Metaphysics, a revised and expanded version of Hegel et la Critique de la Métaphysique. She is the co-editor, with Daniel Garber, of Kant and the Early Moderns and the editor of Le Moi/the Self/le Soi (a special issue of the Revue de Métaphysique et de Morale). She has been a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences since 2011.

Walter Sinnott-Armstrong, chair of the APA committee on lectures, publications, and research, said, “When I heard that the selection committee had chosen Professor Longuenesse for the honor of giving this prestigious lecture, my reaction was, ‘Of course! She deserves it many times over.’ She has been a leader in Kant Studies since her groundbreaking work in the 1990s, and she remains a role model for many young philosophers today.”
