A critique that often appears in relation to Heidegger's philosophy is that it lacks any ethical import. This claim has been exacerbated with the recent publication of his Black Notebooks. This conference seeks to mine Heidegger's philosophy for its ethical possibilities. Papers will focus on the themes of thinking, dwelling, and the ethical life. The conference will also feature  papers that look at Heidegger's analysis of texts within the philosophical tradition, for example, the works of Schelling, Hegel, Aristotle, Plato, etc, and papers that place Heidegger into dialogue with other philosophers on the central theme of the conference. Finally, the conference will have papers highlighting the applications and implications of Heidegger's thought for ethics and ethical practice.
