Welcome to KANTINSA

A consortium of 4 EU Universities and 4 South American (SA) academic institutions critically analyze the development of Kant scholarship in South America over the last 15 years, following the boom in Kant studies and the exponential increase of its quality in that continent over that period. Top SA Kant scholars are enrolled in the project, which promises to greatly enlarge the competence of EU colleagues and in turn profit from their feedback. Early stage researchers from both ends also take part in the exchange. The consortium builds on a web of established relations between most of the participants, at both the personal and institutional level.
