Purpose of the SGIR

The Society for German Idealism and Romanticism brings together philosophical and aesthetic investigations within the productive context of German Idealists such as Kant, Fichte, Schelling, Hegel, and German Romantics such as Novalis, Schlegel, and Hölderlin, as well as the immediate influencers on these figures such as Goethe, Schiller, Herder, and Lessing. Above all, the SGIR is a place for investigating if and to what degree the thought of the Idealists and Romantics can be fruitfully differentiated, and to what degree their ideas are inter-determinative.

The SGIR is affiliated with the American Philosophical Association and the German Studies Association
