The UWO Kant Research Group

The Kant Research Group at Western is a community of scholars based at the University of Western Ontario (in London ON, Canada) with primary research interests in the philosophy of Immanuel Kant (1724-1804). The members of the KRG have expertise ranging over all aspects of Kant's philosophy, but also are actively interested in issues pertaining to the historical context and reception of Kant's thought. In addition to holding regular meetings in which members present their latest research, the KRG supports local conferences and workshops on Kantian topics. It also maintains an archive of digitized texts from the 18th century.
