The LabOnt sincerely thanks the speakers, the organizers, and the sponsors for having made this event possible

The International Chair of Philosophy Jacques Derrida awarded to Massimo Cacciari

The "Jacques Derrida / Law and Culture" International Chair of Philosophy was instituted in Turin in 2014 with the aim of honouring the memory of one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. Derrida cultivated long-lasting relations of friendship and professional collaboration with professors teaching at the University of Turin, where he was conferred a degree honoris causa in Philosophy in 1998. The subtitle ‘Law and Culture’ is tied to the fact that Derrida’s late work much revolved around the link between philosophy and the general topics of law, culture, and justice, in accordance with the principle that "justice is not deconstructible".

This week


Labont Seminar. Pietro Gori: “Nietzsche: prospettivismo e/o pragmatismo”
Torino, 2 novembre, ore 17.00
Campus Luigi Einaudi (CLE), Lungo Dora Siena, 100A. Aula H5

Abstract. La critica di Nietzsche alla nozione di verità e il tema del prospettivismo a essa collegato hanno da sempre stimolato interpreti e filosofi. Se affrontate secondo una prospettiva storico-critica, tali questioni rivelano alla loro base una particolare componente pragmatista. In linea con quanto proposto da William James e condividendo molte delle istanze che il suo pragmatismo portò a maturazione, il pensiero prospettivistico di Nietzsche si presenta infatti come strategia per gestire lo svuotamento di senso della nozione di verità a cui conducono i risultati della moderna epistemologia. Esso consiste, in particolare, in una metodologia di orientamento che assume produttivamente su di sé gli spazi lasciati aperti da un sapere non più metafisico e dogmatico e che, pertanto, permette di avviare un nuovo percorso educativo per l’uomo.

La Pop philosophie

Dans les années 70, le concept de Pop Philosophie a été proposé par le philosophe Gilles Deuleuze. Il a été réactivé voilà une dizaine d’années par Jacques Serrano avec la complicité d’amis philosophes en prenant la forme d’un festival annuel « La Semaine de la Pop Philosophie », présentée pour la première fois à Marseille en 2009 et à Bruxelles en 2013.

Forthcoming


Incontro con l'autore. Tiziana Andina presenta Ontologia sociale. Transgenerazionalità, potere, giustizia, Carocci, 2016
Torino, 9 novembre, ore 18.00
Circolo dei Lettori (Sala Musica), via Bogino 9

Insieme all'autrice intervengono Francesca De Vecchi (Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele), Sebastiano Maffettone (LUISS – Università Guido Carli), Ugo Mattei (Università di Torino; Hastings College of the Law, University of California), Davide Pala (Università di Torino).

La realtà sociale è un dominio complesso, che ci interessa direttamente e quotidianamente. Perciò domandarsi che cos’è, come si compone e quali sono le sue dinamiche, è importante non solo in prospettiva teorica, ma anche sotto il profilo pratico. Che cos’è una promessa? Perché i patti ci vincolano al loro rispetto? Che cosa sono i patti tra le generazioni?
Attraverso l’esame di alcune tra le più importanti teorie dell’ontologia sociale contemporanea, l’autrice discute i fondamenti della disciplina e pone le basi per un suo sviluppo nella sfera politica. Analizzando il concetto di Stato, e ridisegnandone l’ontologia, argomenta in favore di una concezione realista dello Stato, mostra le ragioni per cui essa favorisce una migliore comprensione delle dinamiche di potere e l’attualizzazione di una maggiore giustizia tra le generazioni.

News on New Realism and Mobilitazione Totale


What’s New About ‘New Realism’?
The Berlin Review of Books
Gloria Origgi


Postmodern philosophers have awoken from their long semiotic slumber when it seemed no longer appropriate to make any distinction between facts, words, interpretations, or misinterpretations. Now these philosophers have rediscovered reality, no less. This mass conversion is, to be sure, a good thing. In Italy it was effected thanks to the Manifesto of New Realism by Maurizio Ferraris; in France, thanks to the new Elements de philosophie realiste by Jocelyn Benoist, and last but not least, in Germany by 36-year old philosophy professor Markus Gabriel, the brilliant Wunderkind who teaches us the meaning of existence in his fundamental, brief volume, Fields of Sense: A New Realist Ontology. The new realists are advocating an end to the postmodernist nihilism according to which there are no facts, only interpretations. Postmodernism did have the virtue of doing away with the “grand narratives” of science and politics, and to reveal the dark side of concepts and facts, revealing the underbelly of desire and power present within them. But, at the same time, it threw out the baby with the bathwater and landed us in a morass of illusions, picturing us as residing within a gigantic, collective hallucination of which we are the hapless victims.

Dans un monde où le bureau nomade se démocratise, la surveillance mutuelle qui s’exerçait entre collègues – « tiens, tu es encore parti à 17h30 hier ! » – pourrait n’être bientôt plus qu’un lointain souvenir. Inaugurés le 18 juillet à Pantin, en Seine-Saint-Denis, les nouveaux locaux de l’agence de publicite BETC, installés dans les anciens Magasins généraux restaurés, sont devenus le lieu d’expérimentation d’une nouvelle utopie: le «bureau libre».

Lydia Goehr, Il museo immaginario delle opere musicali
Edizione italiana a cura di Lisa Giombini e Vincenzo Santarcangelo.
Mimesis, 2016

Cosa implicano la composizione, l’esecuzione e la fruizione della musica classica?
Cosa facciamo quando ascoltiamo sul serio questo tipo di musica? Perché nell’eseguire una sonata di Beethoven i musicisti cominciano sempre dalla prima nota indicata nello spartito e non si sentono liberi di improvvisare sul tema centrale della sonata? E perché per il pubblico di un concerto di musica classica battere i piedi significa andare contro la tradizione? Nascosta in ciascuna di queste domande vi è la questione principale di cosa voglia dire, in senso filosofico e storico, parlare di musica in termini di “opere musicali”. In questo libro Lydia Goehr descrive come il concetto di opera musicale sia giunto a formarsi nell’Ottocento e abbia in seguito contribuito a definire le norme, le aspettative, e le regole di comportamento che caratterizzano ancora oggi la pratica della musica classica.
Il museo immaginario delle opere musicali è un testo fondamentale che, non a caso, ha goduto di una enorme diffusione in una varietà di contesti e discipline sin dalla sua pubblicazione.

Il libro esce per Mimesis Edizioni, nella Collana di Estetica Analiticadiretta da Tiziana Andina

Call for Papers: Linguistic Justice and Analytic Philosophy. Special issue of _Philosophical Papers_

*Guest editors*: Filippo Contesi (Jean Nicod Institute), Moti Mizrahi (Florida Tech), Enrico Terrone (Turin)

Expected contributors include *Elisabetta Galeotti* (Eastern Piedmont) & Francesco Chiesa (Pavia), *Eric Schliesser* (Amsterdam) and *Eric Schwitzgebel* (University of California, Riverside)

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).


COSTELLAZIONI

Costellazioni, Anno II, n. 4, Realism in the arts (and beyond)
Deadline for submission: December 31, 2016
 
In recent years, an overt turn back towards the domain of the real has occurred in the arts, with efforts in this direction being witnessed in the visual arts, in music, and in literature alike. In parallel, the status of reality within our linguistic, emotive, and cognitive practices continues to provoke a heated debate among philosophers.
Instead of such answers as might be supplied by rigid philosophical paradigms, it seems to us that the debate over the status of reality demands an open dialogue and the contribution of diverse modes of enquiry and reflection. Focussing primarily on realism in the arts (ranging from the visual arts to cinema, music, literature, etc.), we wish to approach the issue of realism from the angle of aesthetics and of the theories and criticism of art and literature, as well as in the light of the mutual contributions of philosophy and the sciences (which recently appear to have taken a new turn, as in the instance of the non-restrictive paradigm of cognitive processes with which neuroscience is currently engaged).
Contributions on the following topics are thus especially welcomed:
  1. The theoretical, philosophical, and scientific status of realism;
  2. Transformations in the notion of realism in the wake of the demise of strong ideologies and of the crisis of postmodernity;
  3. The real as experienced in the new media and in multimedia practices;
  4. The notion of mimesis in the light of emerging trends in the representation of reality;
  5. Realism as historical and political documentation, and as ethical or political claim;
  6. Developments in the arts arising from the need to narrate contemporary reality, and as reformulation of traditional artistic modes (as in the graphic novel, in street art, etc.)
Please send abstracts for proposals to rivistacostellazioni@gmail.com by December 31st 2016.
