On New Realism

Un point de vue néoréaliste en épistémologie du journalisme
Gilles Gauthier, Professeur titulaire Université Laval, Québec GRMJ
www.surlejournalisme.com
"Il peut y avoir un certain intérêt à traiter de la nature du journalisme non pas pour en circonscrire les limites, mais afin de mettre au jour les présuppositions qui président à sa pratique. C’est une proposition en ce sens qui est ici formulée. Le point de vue épistémologique qui est développé dans le texte est librement inspiré du réalisme naturaliste de John Searle et du « nouveau réalisme » de Maurizio Ferraris ... "

Ontología de la resistencia / Ontologie of resistance by M. T. Ramírez
Revista Valenciana, estudios de filosofía y letras, 19/2017
"A partir del uso político-social del término “resistencia”, este ensayo propone un análisis filosófico del concepto de resistencia a través de ciertos pensadores importantes del siglo XX y lo que va de este siglo. Se analiza así el concepto fenomenológico y ontológico de resistencia en cuanto cualidad ontológica (el Ser es lo que resiste a las determinaciones epistémicas y antropológicas) en Merleau-Ponty y autores recientes vinculados al llamado nuevo realismo o realismo especulativo (Meillassoux, Harman, Ferraris)."

Necessity and Difficulty of a Law of Politics
Bonn, January 24

Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Studies “Law as Culture”

Professor Dr. Martin Morlok, Fellow at Käte Hamburger Center will offer an introduction into the idiosyncrasies and dogmatic challenges of a regulatory field that is indispensible for the containment as well as for the possibilities of political processes. Thus, democratic politics requires legal regulation in order to guarantee principles such as equal opportunity for all. However, the establishment of legal rules must thereby not lead to a strict restriction of the “playing field” in order to ensure that politics is not deprived of its own law, namely that of lawmaking.

Incontro con l'autore: Maurizio Ferraris, L'Imbecillità è una cosa seria
24 gennaio, Napoli

Libreria La Feltrinelli, via Santa Caterina a Chiaia, 23

L'imbecillità è una cosa seria (Il Mulino) è l'irresistibile riflessione del filosofo Maurizio Ferraris su questa imbarazzante caratteristica dell'umano. Ce n'è per chiunque: per i titani del pensiero, per i giganti indiscussi della letteratura, per i protagonisti della storia universale. L'autore dialoga con Bruno Moroncini.

Incontro con l'autore. Giuliano Pontara, Quale pace? Sei saggi su pace e guerra, violenza e nonviolenza, giustizia economica e benessere sociale
Torino, 1 febbraio
Sala Gioco, Il Circolo dei Lettori, Via Bogino 9, ore 18.00

Quattro fenomeni profondamente interrelati costituiscono gravi ostacoli a una pace stabile a livello mondiale e mettono a repentaglio interessi e diritti basilari di generazioni presenti e future: l'escalation della violenza; il costante approfondirsi delle disuguaglianze nella distribuzione di risorse e potere; il crescente aumento della temperatura del pianeta e il conseguente degrado ambientale; il forte aumento dei flussi migratori nel mondo con decine di milioni di persone che fuggono dai massacri, dalle persecuzioni, dalla povertà cronica. Nei sei saggi raccolti in questo volume, Giuliano Pontara, argomentando che la guerra moderna è ingiustificabile, e che non si esce dal vortice della violenza con ulteriore violenza, esplora e analizza alcuni problemi centrali riguardanti la nozione e le vie della pace: dalla istaurazione di un governo mondiale democratico alla nonviolenza attiva, fino ai fattori istituzionali e alle forze situazionali che ne favoriscono o impediscono l'applicazione; memore del detto kantiano per cui, pur non sapendo "se la pace perpetua sia una cosa reale o un nonsenso [...] dobbiamo agire come se fosse una cosa reale, il che forse non è, e operare per la fondazione di essa", qui e ora.
Con l'autore, Giuliano Pontara (Università di Stoccolma), ne discutono Gianluca Cuozzo, Amedeo Cottino, Roberto Burlando e Luigi Bonanate.

PIC M.A. Philosophy Curriculum in Turin

Tiziana Andina. "Philosophy of Art" 
Drawing on the philosophies of art developed by the continental authors and studies of Anglo-American philosophers, the course presents a panorama of the philosophy of art. It discusses definitions offered from the analytical school including Danto's representationalism, Dipert's theories of artefactualism, Dickie's institutional and procedural theories and Levinson's historical and cultural theories. From the continental theories it reflects on Hegel's notion of philosophy of art, Heidegger and Gadamer's hermeneutic tradition and Alexius Meinong's theory of objects.
Website


Graham Harman. "Metaphysics: Three Hidden Keys to the History of Philosophy"
The course will be a brief but intense examination of three key concepts that are not normally discussed in courses on Western metaphysics, but which I will present as being central to the discipline: duomining, indirect causation, and the continuum. The readings will be intellectually challenging, though not overwhelming in terms of length.

Dove ci porta la gente nell’era del web
di Marco Filoni
Pagina99 - www.pagina99.it

Quelli che credono di sapere tutto. Quelli che odiano gli esperti. E quelli che teorizzano la democrazia diretta. Ecco perché la società digitale alimenta l’incompetenza. E minaccia i valori della democrazia.

C’è una vecchia storiella che racconta di un giudice, molto saggio e di grande intelligenza, di fronte al quale si presentano due litiganti per dirimere la loro questione. Il giudice ascolta il primo, poi riflette e commenta: «Hai ragione». Poi ascolta anche l’altro litigante, torna a riflettere e conclude: «Hai ragione». Allora suo figlio, un bambino nemmeno adolescente che stava giocando nella stanza accanto e aveva ascoltato tutto, alza la testa e rivolgendosi al padre protesta: «Ma non possono avere ragione tutti e due allo stesso tempo». E il saggio giudice, sempre più saggio: «Hai ragione anche tu» [continua a leggere].

Special Issue - Philosophy and Geography: History and Theory  
The Journal of Interdisciplinary History of Ideas launches a call for papers on the historical connections between philosophy and geography
Deadline: May 15, 2017

Man’s geographic position is one of the most fascinating topic of the entire history of philosophy from its very beginning. For instance Anaximander was the first, at least in the Western World, who drew a map of the known world. And Thales had already conceived the Earth as a body floating in waters, implicitly defining a radical dichotomy between land and sea, establishing for the first time one of the most important categories of political and legal philosophy developed in the 20th century primarily by Carl Schmitt. The aim of this issue of the Journal of Interdisciplinary History of Ideas is to answer the many relevant questions concerning the historical connections between philosophy and geography, exploring the possible theoretical intersections between them to which this history points.
More:  Website

The special issue of the Journal of Interdisciplinary History of Ideas on Philosophy and Geography is planned for the end of 2017. Deadlines: Articles, along with a 300-words abstract and keywords, must be submitted before May 15, 2017.

Submission: Submissions must contain original and unpublished work. Contributions are ex­pected to adopt a genuinely interdisciplinary perspective in the history of ideas. Submitted articles may be written in English or French, and shall be sent to the fol­lowing e-mail address: phil_geo@jihi.eu

All submitted articles will undergo a double-blind review process. The text can be provided in .odt, .doc, .docx, or .pdf format, and must not include authors’ names and affiliations (pay attention to metadata and file properties), nor self-references that re­veal the author’s identity.
Contacts: For further information, please contact the editors of the special issue:
Simone Mammola (sokrates@alice.it)
Ernesto Sferrazza Papa (ernesto.sferrazza.papa@gmail.com)

Authors are welcome to discuss their prospective contributions with the editors be­fore submission.

Call for Papers: Linguistic Justice and Analytic Philosophy
Special issue of _Philosophical Papers_
Deadline: 1 October, 2017
Website

*Guest editors*: Filippo Contesi (Jean Nicod Institute), Moti Mizrahi (Florida Tech) and Enrico Terrone (Turin)
Expected contributors include *Eric Schwitzgebel* (University of California, Riverside), *Hans-Johann Glock* (Zurich), *Elisabetta Galeotti* (Eastern Piedmont) and *Eric Schliesser* (Amsterdam)

The topics of linguistic discrimination and linguistic justice have received little attention from contemporary analytic philosophers despite the fact that there is a growing body of evidence in linguistics and social psychology about implicit negative biases towards speakers and writers perceived as non-native. In fact, issues of linguistic discrimination and justice are particularly urgent in analytic philosophy because English is undoubtedly the lingua franca of contemporary analytic philosophy. For this reason, it is important to think about what it means to be a person for whom English is not a first language and who tries to participate in the academic life of contemporary analytic philosophy.

The aim of this special issue of _Philosophical Papers_ is to consider the circumstances of being a non-native speaker and writer of English in analytic philosophy. In addition to philosophical and meta-philosophical perspectives, we also encourage submissions from different approaches and disciplines, including psychology, linguistics and the social sciences.

Possible questions for discussion include:

- Is there linguistic discrimination or injustice in analytic philosophy? If so, what should we do about it?
- Are the percentages of non-native-speaker faculty members of the most reputable analytic philosophy departments comparable to those in arts and humanities and STEM departments? What should any differences teach us?
- How can diversity of native languages and cultures be beneficial, if at all, to analytic philosophy?
- Are perceived linguistic fluency and eloquence important factors in philosophical writing and presenting? Should they be?
- Is it true, as is sometimes claimed, that publishing philosophical work in the most reputable venues in contemporary analytic philosophy only requires linguistic competence of a level that is reasonably easy for a non-native writer to achieve?
- Should English (or any other language) be the lingua franca of contemporary analytic philosophy?
- Should study and research in analytic philosophy be a global and cosmopolitan enterprise?
- What if any extra policies can or should professional journals or institutions adopt to address any specific difficulties faced by non-native speakers and writers?
- Are there any precedents in the history of intellectual communities, including contemporary ones and those in different philosophical traditions, that can provide a useful model of how to approach the language issue in analytic philosophy?
- How does the language issue intersect with issues of race, ethnicity or nationality (or other issues)? How important are such intersections (or lack thereof)?

The deadline for receipt of submissions is 1 October, 2017. This issue of _Philosophical Papers_, comprising both invited and submitted articles, will appear in *March 2018*.

Authors should submit manuscripts electronically, as a PDF or MS Word document attachment, to the Managing Editor at Philosophical.Papers@ru.ac.za. Authors must include their full name, affiliation, and address for email correspondence with their submission.

Further inquiries may be addressed to Filippo Contesi (filippo.contesi@york.ac.uk) or Ward Jones (w.jones@ru.ac.za).

Considerations in Urban Aesthetics: Planning, Mobilities, and Everyday Life
Deadline: 31st January 2017

The International Institute of Applied Aesthetics’ (IIAA) XIIth IIAA Summer Conference on Environmental Aesthetics, will be organized in both Lahti and Espoo, Finland. The conference will begin in Lahti on 31.5.–1.6.2017, and conclude at Aalto University in Helsinki, on 2.6.2017. The theme of the conference is “Considerations in Urban Aesthetics: Planning, Mobilities, and Everyday Life.“ Aesthetic considerations constitute one of the important aspects of urban experience, with aesthetics likewise playing a major role within urban planning. Our routes of commuting, for example, span across different units of the environment and include a variety of aesthetic experiences: an apartment, a building, the neighborhood block, the city district, the whole city. These different zones affect habituation processes and function as a setting with which we engage and disengage within the fluctuating spatio-temporal rhythms of the everyday. It is paradoxical, therefore, that even though the relevance of aesthetic considerations both in planning processes and in the experience of built environments is undeniable, the nature of the aesthetic and aesthetic experience is only seldom, if ever, analyzed explicitly in regards to Urban Planning. However, these issues concerning the urban environment are so complicated and multifaceted that an interdisciplinary approach may be needed to grasp them. Can we bring together expertise in philosophical aesthetics, architectural theory, and planning theory to develop the conceptual tools needed to better understand the relevance and role of aesthetic values both in the complicated planning processes of urban environments and in the everyday lives of urban citizens? What, for instance, is:
• the role of aesthetics in the confrontation between consensus-based and pluralism-based theories of urban planning?
• the aesthetic preconditions of achieving a consensus?
• the aesthetic assumptions both in planning processes and in people’s judgments of the results of proposed plans?

To discuss these and related themes, we enthusiastically invite researchers interested in exploring the topic to
send an abstract of 400 words to iiaa-info@helsinki.fi by the 31st of January 2017. The time allotted to each
paper is 40 minutes (30 minute presentation, 10 minutes for discussion).

Keynote Speakers: Michael Gunder (University of Auckland); Tim Schwanen (University of Oxford)

Conference fee: 100€ and 50€ graduate students

2nd World Congress on Logic and Religion. University of Warsaw, June 18-22, 2017
Deadline: 15 January, 2017 (http://www.uni-log.org/logos2017-cfp)
Website

The 2nd World Congress on Logic and Religion will be held at the University of Warsaw (Poland) on June 18-22, 2017, the institutional organiser being the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Warsaw (Instytut Filozofii, Uniwersytet Warszawski) (see the map).

The 1st World Congress on Logic and Religion was organized jointly by the Federal University of Campina Grande, the Federal University of Paraiba and the University of Brazil in João Pessoa, and held on April 1-5, 2015. It was devoted to a wide range of problems concerning the relations between logic and religion. At the conclusion of the congress, many participants expressed the wish to continue discussions on these topics in the future and also warmly welcomed the idea to organize such an event in Poland, which can be called a country of logic and religion thanks to both the tradition of Lvov-Warsaw School of logic and a considerable level of religiosity.

There are a number of important topics that are proposed be discussed at the 2nd World Congress on Logic and Religion in Warsaw, which include such fields as:

  • Impact of religious beliefs on logical structures;
  • Logic at the service of apologetics;
  • Rationalization of religious beliefs;
  • Justification in religious legal traditions (including Talmudic Logic);
  • Logics vis-a-vis illogicalities in religion;
  • Non-classical logics and religion;
  • Models of argumentation in religious discourse, etc.

It is our pleasure to invite you to join us in Warsaw.

The deadline for submission of an abstract is January 15, 2017.
In order to send your submission please go to the registration form.
