Conference: Kant, Judgement, and Recent French Philosophy

It should be possible to watch the conference on a live video stream. I’m told that once we start the live stream, a link will be generated. I’ll put this on here our blog page, with the details of the conference, and you should then be able to join us. 


If you have a question you would like to ask, email me and I’ll try to make sure it’s raised in discussion. 

The video stream will be left on for the day so you can drop in and out of it. We’ll have to do the same thing again on Saturday morning.

After the event, we’ll edit the video and make the presentations available individually. We’ll let you know when they’re ready.

I hope some of you find this interesting and useful. Please do let us know.
