NASS 2 : : Futures of Schelling
University of Western Ontario, London, Canada
August 29- September 1, 2013
The Second Conference of the North American Schelling Society
With the recent resurgence of interest in Schelling he is no longer just a “vanishing mediator” (in Zizek’s phrase) between Idealism and Heideggerian or postHeideggerian thought. Schelling is being read in interesting ways both within this tradition and outside it. The North American Schelling Society’s second annual conference seeks to address the broad theme of the futures that Schelling opens up, in his own work, in the work of contemporaries or predecessors that he helps us to reconceptualize, and in the way his work informs or can inform subsequent and future philosophical, theoretical, and interdisciplinary work.
Location and Local Info
Bus Directions from Station Park
Walking out the front door of the hotel turn right and then right again when you reach Richmond (it’s one block) and you will see the bus stop immediately.
Take either #13 or #7.
If you take the 13 you will get off at Delaware Hall and then walk north west up the hill (it can be a bit of a workout) towards University College. The building has a bell tower and flag and is very difficult to miss.
If you take the 7 you will get off at Natural Sciences and then walk south west to University College. You will pass the gallery on your left and will see Lawson Hall in front of you. University College is just past Lawson on the left.
Either way the ride should take 15-20 min at most.
