Euro-American Migration and the Development of Postwar Philosophy


Call for Papers

Theme: Euro-American Migration and the Development of Postwar Philosophy
Type: International Conference
Institution: Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics and
Philosophy of Science (TiLPS), Tilburg University
Location: Tilburg (Netherlands)
Date: 22.–23.8.2022
Deadline: 14.1.2022



In the 1930s, dozens of European philosophers sought refuge in the
United States, escaping the quickly deteriorating political situation
on the continent. Among them were several philosophers who
significantly influenced the course of postwar philosophy (e.g.
Theodor Adorno, Hannah Arendt, Rudolf Carnap, Herbert Feigl, Carl
Gustav Hempel, Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, Hans Reichenbach,
Alfred Tarski). How did the migration affect the development of
philosophical traditions such as pragmatism, logical empiricism,
phenomenology, and critical theory? And why were American
philosophers receptive to some but not to other schools of thought? 

This conference is devoted to the impact of the migration on the
course of postwar philosophy and brings together historians
specialized in American philosophy, logical empiricism,
phenomenology, and critical theory. The aim of the conference is to
study the influence of the migration on the development of these
different traditions and to bridge to scholastic boundaries that have
shaped the historiography of twentieth-century philosophy.
