Predoctoral Research Assistant (75%, i.e. 30 hrs/wk; for 30 months, with the possibility of a six-month extension), for a project on
Self-Consciousness and Personal Identity in Eighteenth-Century Practical Philosophy with a focus on Kant.
Theoretical issues concerning self-consciousness and identity can often be crucial to understanding central issues in practical philosophy, such as the nature of agency and the issue of self-determination. For example, the ability to determine our own self with respect to actions presupposes that we are conscious of our own self in some way. How does eighteenth-century philosophy, and Immanuel Kant’s philosophy in particular, account for this relation between a theoretical and a practical relation to one’s own self, and how are these accounts to be evaluated? These are questions to be dealt with in this research.
The project is formally embedded within the Institut für Philosophie, Arbeitsbereich Geschichte der Philosophie, at the University of Graz and will be carried out under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Udo Thiel within the context of the Research Group on The Enlightened Subject: Sameness and Self from Condillac to Reinhold (Austrian Science Fund – FWF Project No: 29862-G16).
