In this one-day workshop, we will go in search of what it means to think historically. The historical point of view is not the exclusive property of historiography, but it is also present in an array of different disciplines. Arguably, the historical point of view has had its most profound influence in philosophy. This workshop will confront historians with a theoretical interest with philosophers with a historical interest, in order to thematize the elements which unite researchers from different disciplines who think historically.
Although this workshop is aimed in the first place at historians and philosophers from the low countries, it should also prove useful to a more international audience and to researchers from other disciplines.
