COLLEGIUM PHAENOMENOLOGICUM 
 
Città di Castello, Umbria, Italy 
 
July 14 — August 1, 2008 
 
 
The Collegium Phaenomenologicum will convene for its thirty-third annual session in the Umbrian town of Città di Castello. The Collegium is intended for faculty members and advanced graduate and postdoctoral students in philosophy and related disciplines. The core of the program consists in a series of lecture courses, individual lectures, and intensive text-based seminars.  A Participants Conference will be held July 12-13, 2008. The theme for 2008 will be:  
 
 
 
Belief after Reason: Hegel, Heidegger, Derrida 
 
What becomes of belief after its critical accommodation in Kant’s account of reason? The courses, lectures, and seminars of the Collegium will explore some of the ways in which Glauben (belief, faith) continues to haunt post-Kantian European philosophy. They will examine its returns, translations, and implications. They will consider its seeming capacity to frustrate or avoid diagnosis. In addition to the course readings, texts by Kant, Schelling, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Deleuze may also be discussed.
