The aim of the workshop is to foster a modern philosophical dialogue capable of integrating the disconnected philosophical traditions which followed Hegel in the nineteenth century and Wittgenstein in the twentieth. The event, which is taking place at Charles University in Prague between 11 and 13 June 2019, will focus on the topic of negativity and language in Hegel and Wittgenstein, and compare differences and similarities in their approaches.
The workshop will also continue the discussion begun at the Wittgenstein–Hegel conference at TU Dresden in June 2017. We will be introducing the new volume Wittgenstein and Hegel – Reevaluation of Difference (edited by Jakub Mácha and Alexander Berg), in which twenty-three contributors explore new understandings of the relationship between Wittgenstein’s and Hegel’s philosophy. The volume is being published by De Gruyter (Berlin) and is due to be released in June 2019.
