Humanities 4.0. Scienza Nuova

In occasione della pubblicazione del volume 1.2 di Brill Perspectives in Art and Law : Tiziana Andina, What is Art? The Question of Definition Reloaded, Leiden-Boston, 2017

Museo Madre, Napoli, 4 dicembre, ore 18
Con la partecipazione di: Gianmaria Ajani (Università di Torino), Tiziana Andina (Università di Torino), Angela Condello (Università di Roma Tre), Maurizio Ferraris (Università di Torino), Gaetano Manfredi (Università Federico II, Napoli), Lucio d'Alessandro (Università Suor Orsola Benincasa, Napoli).

Sino a non molto tempo fa, l’arte e il diritto sarebbero apparsi territori agli antipodi, oggi non è più così: i due ambiti si illuminano a vicenda, in un contesto profondamente cambiato, che potremmo definire “Humanities 4.0”, e che manifesta una profonda ibridazione disciplinare che riguarda anche le sfere della scienza, della filosofia e dell’economia. Tra vent’anni, possiamo esserne certi, le discipline, umanistiche e scientifiche, saranno profondamente diverse da come le abbiamo conosciute, e intercettare e anticipare il cambiamento è un compito prioritario dell’università, che trova oggi una nuova e fortissima attualità. Nella città di Vico, in una sede che ha una tradizione di ibridazioni tra arte, scienze e humanities, l’incontro cercherà di definire i caratteri di quelle che Jacques Derrida definiva “umanità a venire”, ma che potremmo altrettanto bene battezzare come “scienza nuova”.

Maurizio Ferraris sul Corriere
«... C'è molto più spazio per un intervento diretto, non ornamentale ma strutturale, della cultura dell'industria. La cosiddetta "industria 4.0" è proprio questo, e l'Università è chiamata a sviluppare delle Humanities 4.0, delle scienze umane capaci di intercettare la rivoluzione documediale ... L'Università di Torino [...] sta progettando precisamente Scienza Nuova, un MIT per le scienze umane che mira a rispondere e a elaborare il problema».

Seminari di Solars 2017-2018: "Energia, lavoro, corpi: ontologie materiali della transizione"
Torino, 28 novembre -12 dicembre 2017

Campus Luigi Einaudi, Lungo Dora Siena 100

Le crisi economica ed ecologica stanno spingendo gli studiosi verso un’accelerata integrazione di discipline sociali e biofisiche. I sociologi hanno realizzato che i processi di trasformazione dei sistemi sociali possono essere compresi solo a patto di considerare il mondo materiale nel quale sono inscritti. Gli scienziati biofisici si stanno rendendo conto che l’incertezza nel prevedere i fenomeni naturali è causata dall’interazione con il mondo umano, e che quindi la componente socioculturale è ineliminabile dalle loro investigazioni. In sintesi il quadro scientifico muta orientandosi verso nuove ontologie, ossia verso problematiche che richiedono l’integrazione delle diverse discipline. Questo primo ciclo di seminari di Solars, in programma al Campus Luigi Einaudi (Lungo Dora Siena, 100 - Torino) intende introdurre tali aspetti, proponendo un’iniziale riflessione sule ontologie future della transizione.

The Limits of Transparency
Brussels, 11-12 December

Palace of the Academies, Rue Ducale 1

More transparency! This demand can currently be heard everywhere. Transparency is meant to magically solve most problems of social life in today’s democracies and the consensus holds that more transparency is unconditionally positive. Transparency is, however, not simply given, but rather the result of deliberate operations. If transparency exists only as manufactured, there can only be transparency where the manufacturing operations are negated or made invisible, just as the windowpane only works if one sees through the glass and not the glass itself. Read more



Conference Announcement & CFA



OUR SPECIES AND ITS RESPONSIBILITIES. AN ONTOLOGY FOR THE ENVIRONMENTAL CRISIS
International Conference
UNIVERSITY OF TURIN, 1 & 2 FEBRUARY 2018
https://ontoenvironment.wordpress.com/
 
Who is responsible for the current environmental crisis—including the two intertwined phenomena of climate change and biodiversity declining? Typically, our species with its activities—habitat interruption, pollution, overexploitation of natural resources, etc.—is pointed at both as the main cause and the alleged agent who has the duty to redress the crisis. But what does that actually mean? Does it make any sense to speak of species responsibility? Could a species, as distinct from its individual members, be a moral agent? Answering these questions requires a preliminary reflection on the nature, on the one hand, of the very notion of collective responsibility (and the related notions of personal and shared responsibility); and, on the other hand, on the ontological status of our (and other) species, as well as collective subjects such as groups and communities.
 
INVITED SPEAKERS
Tiziana ANDINA, University of Turin
Markku OKSANEN, University of Eastern Finland
Virginie MARIS, CEFE/CNRS, Montpellier
 
SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE
Simona Bonelli, University of Turin; Vincenzo Crupi, University of Turin; Maurizio Ferraris, University of Turin; Philippe Huneman, IHPST-CNRS/ Université Paris 1 Sorbonne; Philip Kitcher, Columbia University; Federica Liveriero, University of Massachusetts, Lowell; Jorge Marques da Silva, University of Lisbon; Sahotra Sarkar, University of Texas at Austin, USA and Presidency University, Kolkata, India.


The conference is part of the activities of the project SOFEE- Social Ontology For Environmental Emergencies funded by the European Union’s Fp7 Research and Innovation Programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 609402 – 2020 (Train to Move) and is organized in collaboration with the UNESCO Chair in Sustainable Development and Territory Management and the Master in Socio-environmental Sustainability of Agrifood Networks.


CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
The present call for abstracts is directed to philosophers of biology, conservation biologists, ethicists, philosophers of politics, social ontologists, and metaphysicians. The aim of the workshop is to provide an interdisciplinary context for discussing the ontological, political, and ethical dimensions of the current environmental crisis.
Potential topics might include, but are not limited to:
  • The ontological status of (our and other) species as well as of possible targets of conservation policies and actions (species, subspecies, populations, evolutionarily significant units, etc.);
  • Models and forecasts about future environmental changes: policy making under conditions of uncertainty;
  • The nature of the collective subjects involved in the management of the environmental crisis (such as the scientific community, the general public, the governments, the States, the NGOs…) and/or their possible different understanding of the environmental crisis;
  • The nature of responsibility (with a particular focus on collective / personal / shared responsibility as well as on intergenerational responsibility) and the links between human responsibilities and human rights in the era of environmental crisis.

La genèse du transcendantal
dir. de J. Lageira et A. Longo, Mimesis 2017

Le problème de la genèse du transcendantal fut au centre de l’idéalisme postkantien lorsqu’il s’agissait d’expliquer, par voie spéculative, la raison d’être des déterminations a priori et du développement historique de la connaissance. Abandonnée à cause de ses implications métaphysiques, cette question se trouve aujourd’hui propulsée au centre d’un débat autour des nouvelles tendances réalistes de la philosophie. L’ouvrage propose une mise en perspective des différentes approches et solutions contemporaines à la question des conditions réelles, naturelles ou métaphysiques, des concepts que l’on emploie pour produire nos connaissances. Une analyse incontournable afin de légitimer le discours philosophique vis-à-vis des sciences de la nature.

Conflicts - Antagonism, Agonies, Affects
Deadline: January 15th, 2018

31st May-2nd June 2018, Paris
Submission deadline: January 15th, 2018

Keynotes:

The Nordic Society of Aesthetics will organize the 2018 Annual Conference and Meeting in three Nordic centers in Paris from May 31st to June 2nd on the theme “Conflicts – Antagonisms, Agonies, Affects.”
Given the political horizon of the 21st century, an era marked by necropolitics, neoliberalism and ubiquitous computing, we invite scholars to investigate the various aesthetic practices and theories that can be used to explore the tensions, sufferings and modes of experience that are parts of the fabric of everyday reality almost twenty years into the century. By suggesting a cluster of concepts – antagonisms, agonies, affects – that in various, non-symmetrical and transversal ways articulate these tensions, we are interested in exploring ways in which art and various forms of aesthetics experience may be seen to mediate or register. Instances of this may be the aesthetic and affective dimensions of conflicts, protests and wars; internal conflicts within the fields of art and aesthetics; dissensual and antagonistic/agonistic artistic and aesthetic practices; etc. In addition, we welcome proposals engaging with the other side of conflict; reconciliation, as articulated within the tradition of philosophical aesthetic and art theory. Whether formulated as a formal principle, a problematic ideological notion, or as the ultimate ethical horizon of aesthetic experience, reconciliation in its many conceptual declinations has been a notion that informs the modern discourses of art. While the notion of reconciliation in no way provides the only master trope of modern aesthetics, it has been a central principle to some of the most influential narratives of emancipatory aesthetics providing a bridge between politics and art, the many and the one, culture and nature.
We strongly encourage scholars to form panels to discuss issues mentioned above, and submit a panel proposal.
The time allocated for a panel consisting of 3-4 contributions is 60 minutes. We look also forward to receiving proposals for individual papers. Time allocated for a paper is 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for discussion.
Please send abstracts not exceeding 500 words (panels) or 300 words (individual papers) to NSEParis2018@mail.com no later than January 15th, 2018. Selection will be based on quality, relevance to the conference theme, and program considerations.

The XXIV World Congress of Philosophy (WCP2018)
Paper and Proposal Submission Deadline: February 1st, 2018

13th-20th August 2018
Peking University, Beijing, P. R. China

Official Language: English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Chinese.
Congress Website
Program: Plenary Sessions, Symposia, Endowed Lectures, 99 Sections for Contributed Papers, Round Tables, Invited Sessions, Society Sessions, Student Sessions and Poster Sessions
Organizer: International Federation of Philosophical Societies, Peking University
Host: Chinese Organizing Committee of WCP 2018

The 24th World Congress of Philosophy in Beijing offers by far the largest, richest, and most diverse philosophy program that has ever been offered at any World Congress. The program reflects a genuine attempt to move beyond narrowly Western ways of approaching philosophy in terms of its traditional (largely Greek) categories. The program has been carefully designed to include recognition of East and West, North and South. Philosophy in all its forms is included --not just philosophy as traditionally understood in the great systems of Greek, Indian, Jewish, Christian, Islamic, and Chinese thought-- but also Marxist philosophy, environmental philosophy, philosophy of indigenous cultures, philosophy of cosmopolitanism, philosophy at the margins. There is a symposium that discusses not just love (caritas) but humanity (ren), the ‘heart’, Ubuntu. I am very happy to see that so many distinguished international scholars and philosophers have agreed to participate in the 5 plenary sessions, 10 symposia, and 5 endowed lectures, in invited sessions, member society sessions, round tables, 99 sessions of sections based on individual submissions, and, not least, in the student sessions. This Congress will reflect critically on the role of philosophy in relation to world culture, to globalization, to the various existential and environmental threats that challenge us, citizens of the world, in our quest to realize our common humanity. Learning to be human!

Aesthetics of Popular Culture Conference 
Deadline: February 1st, 2018
4th-6th May 2018
University of Warsaw
Submission deadline February 1, 2018

Keynotes:
David Davies (McGill University, Montreal)
Tomas Kulka (Charles University, Prague)

Granting that we are constantly bombarded with various forms of popular culture with little room for reprieve, how is it that the popular discourse of philosophical aesthetics seems to offer little insight to the increasingly pervasive artist renderings of this ‘lower’ art form? Recently, aestheticians and philosophers have been turning their gaze to new domains of human creative activities, i.e., comics, advertisements, pornography, popular music, video games, etc. Yet – the question still burns regarding the relationship between aesthetics of the canonical, high culture and low, popular culture. Do they have different methodologies or just different subjects of inquiry? We warmly invite papers that reconsider the value and methods of aesthetics of popular culture and art – broadly understood – by exploring new concepts and fields of inquiry. Given the explorative mandate of the papers — no specific methodology or philosophical orientation is required in submissions. 
Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the newly emerged peer- and blind-reviewed open access online journal Popular Inquiry: The Journal of Kitsch, Camp and Mass Culture.
The conferences will be hosted the University of Warsaw, Poland and is co-organized with Alto University, Finland.

Suggested topics (which should not be seen as restrictive, but more as an invitation): 

– avant-garde popular culture

– art from the point of view of popular culture studies

– aesthetic properties and concepts of popular culture

– popular culture, aesthetic education and art schools

– official popular culture (nazism, socialism, etc.)

– popular culture in post-communist countries

– the relation of aesthetics and cultural studies

– popular culture as a shared outsider (Americanization)

– European aesthetics of popular culture

– kitsch, trash, camp

– video games, digital art, popular film & television

– urban/public space

– the art/craft distinction

Please send a title and a 500 word abstract, suitable for blind review, in either Word or PDF format, to popularculture.uw@gmail.com. For each talk, there will be time for a 30-minute presentation, with another 15 minutes designated for discussion. The deadline for submission is February 1, 2018. Notification of acceptance will be sent by February 20, 2018. The conference fee for both established academics and PhD students is 40 Euros. There is also a separate (optional) fee for the conference dinner of 50 Euros.

Steering Committee: Adam Andrzejewski (University of Warsaw), Karan August (independent scholar), Max Ryynänen (Aalto University), Mateusz Salwa (University of Warsaw)

To globalize philosophical investigations to encompass the diverse forms of philosophizing by past and present thinkers across cultures, with special attention to critical reflections on philosophy itself and the tasks and functions of philosophy in the contemporary world.

To open the philosophical area to enable philosophers to address emerging global issues through fruitful interactions with other disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, with other activities in economic, social, political, and religious spheres, as well as with diverse cultures and traditions.

To encourage philosophical reflections to become public discourses on recurrent human concerns, such as ecology, justice, and peace.

APhEx 17, 2018 – Deadline: 31 dicembre 2017

La redazione di "APhEx. Portale italiano di filosofia analitica" invita chiunque fosse interessato ad inviare un contributo per la prossima pubblicazione del portale (APhEx 17, 2018). Tutti i contributi vanno spediti all'indirizzo e-mail alle rispettive sezioni del portale "Temi" (Francesca Ervas, Paolo Labinaz, temi@aphex.it), "Profili” (Bianca Cepollaro, Vera Tripodi, profili@aphex.it), “Letture critiche" (Pierluigi Graziani, Claudio Calosi, recensioni@aphex.it), "Interviste” (Federica Berdini, redazione@aphex.it) accompagnati da quattro parole-chiave, un breve cv ed un abstract di mille battute per le sezioni "Temi" e "Profili". I contributi inviati devono essere originali, non devono essere stati pubblicati per intero o in parte presso altri portali, riviste o case editrici. 

Ciascun contributo verrà sottoposto a referaggio anonimo e dovrà seguire le norme editoriali disponibili all'indirizzo:
http://www.aphex.it/index.php?Norme=567D0571570474005472727677

Il portale APhEx è aperto a diversi tipi di collaborazione da parte dei lettori. E' possibile inviare recensioni di libri e articoli o scrivere un pezzo per la rubrica "profili" e "temi". I contributi, la cui valutazione in vista della pubblicazione spetta alla redazione del sito, dovranno pervenire preferibilmente in formato Word e in modo conforme alle norme redazionali. Ogni proposta va preferibilmente concordata con la redazione. 

1. Temi: Nei contributi di questa sezione, l'autore/autrice fornisce una visione panoramica e critica di un area di ricerca della filosofia analitica contemporanea attualmente in discussione, presentandone le teorie più significative e gli autori più influenti. L'obiettivo di questa sezione è di fornire al lettore e alla lettrice, anche non esperto o esperta del particolare settore filosofico, uno sguardo generale su una questione che abbia generato un dibattito senza necessariamente presentarne i dettagli dello sviluppo storico. La lunghezza di un contributo è di circa 6000/7000 parole. 

2. Profili: Il testo di un profilo non deve semplicemente ripercorrere la vita, i concetti e le opere principali dell'autore in questione, ma deve essere un'esposizione critica e argomentata degli aspetti più influenti del suo pensiero. Il testo dovrà essere seguito dalla bibliografia primaria dell'autore (opere in lingua originale e traduzioni in lingua italiana) e da una breve bibliografia secondaria. La lunghezza di un contributo è di circa 5000/7000 parole. 

3. Letture critiche: Una Lettura Critica non è semplicemente un resoconto o descrizione del contenuto di un librò, né è uno strumento meramente pubblicitario. Essa è piuttosto un modo di riflettere criticamente su un testo considerandone l'approccio al problema in oggetto, il nesso con la letteratura pertinente, il ruolo rispetto ad altri libri sullo stesso argomento. La Lettura Critica può essere diretta a un libro o, in particolari casi, a diversi libri che siano tematicamente collegati (ad esempio: i recenti dizionari di filosofia in lingua italiana). Nel primo caso, la lunghezza sarà di circa 3000-4000 parole, nel secondo di circa 4000-6000 parole. 

4. Interviste: I contributi di questa sezione sono trascrizioni di interviste ai maggiori filosofi analitici contemporanei. Le domande vanno concordate con la redazione e la lunghezza delle interviste può variare secondo le esigenze dell'autore/autrice. 


Per ogni informazione di carattere generale, vi invitiamo a contattare Vera Tripodi (redazione@aphex.it).

Unlike the many magazines that revolve around the architectural world, Ardeth concerns neither with outcomes (architecture) nor with the authors (architects). Ardeth concerns instead with their operational work, i.e. projects. The shift from subjects (their good intentions, as taught in Universities and reclaimed in the profession) to objects (the products of design, at work within the social system …

Description
Derek Parfit’s influence has been substantial inthe discussionson personal identity, rationality, and ethicsin general. On the one hand, since his first works (Parfit 1971, Parfit 1984) he initiated a new trend in the classic debate about criteria of personal identity, putting forward different and more specific methodological requirements. With the so-called “identity doesn’t matter view” he stressed the importance of a metaphysical analysis of personal identity, arguing that (logical) identity doesn’t matter in survival. On the other hand, Parfit analysed the relation between rationality and time (Parfit 1984: Ch. 2), as well as the concerns about the future generations (Ch. 4), and argued in favour of a universal moral theory (Parfit 2011).
The purpose of this issue is to stress Parfit’s influence in the contemporary philosophical debate, and the significance of his revolutionary ideas. We welcome papers that analyse Parfit’s theses on (but not limited to) the following topics:
 
- Parfit “identity doesn’t matter view”
- Personal identity and its criteria
- Thought experiments
- Reductionism
- Time and rationality
