About the Conference:
The Conference is unequivocally the first of its kind in India, relating to the work of Kant. This two-day conference invites participants from across nations and disciplines, to brainstorm on Kant's work, thought and philosophy.
Themes and Sub-Themes:
- Constitutional Morality and Kantian Justice:
The concept of the Constitution is not an idea of positive law, but a Vernunftidee (an idea of reason], that is, it is not subject to written law, or in Kant's terms, empirical (or statutory) or positive law.
- Science, Technology and Kant's Epistemology:
Kant's pure rational cognition that is generated from concepts with metaphysics, contends that science requires a metaphysics of nature. The use of technology is permissible only when it finds its place in the light of culture and territory. Kant believed that philosophy is the "narrow gate" that connects to the world at large.
- Metaphysics as a tool for understanding science and its basic construct
- Categorical Imperative and Transcendentalism in 21st Century
- Kant's influence on Contemporary Education System
- Education as a tool to transform Animal Behaviour to Human Resolve
- Kant and Nature:
"An organized product of nature is that in which all the parts are mutually ends and means." Kant advocated "Doctrine of Virtue" that one should not be cruel to animals and destroy the flora. Human have direct duties only to themselves and other human beings. Kant has also emphasised on the integral role that 'Ethics and Morality' plays on Human Determination
- Kant on Human Nature

- Morality to overcome Human Evils
- Kant and Personal Justice:
Considering a person as an object to satisfy the appetite of a person is a degradation of human nature. Immanuel Kant in his metaphysics of morals came out with a theory of property rights. His assertions on "Universal principle of right" led to discussions on property rights of individuals
- Private Property and State Intervention
- Kant and Romantic Blending of Spouses
- Property Relations (including IP)
- Ratification of Monogamy in Marriage
- Kant and Criminal Justice:
"Better the whole people perish than injustice be done." Kant states that guilt is the necessary condition for infliction of punishment. He also added that punishment of innocent is conceptual and moral pathology. It is largely to avoid such punishment that Kant inveighs against private revenge, vigilantism, war, and any other activity, which allows a disputant to judge his own case and punish according to his own biased decision.
- Justice under Criminal law
- Judicial Punishment
- Utilitarian Theory of Punishment
- Penal Philosophy
