“Institutions in Action: The Nature and the Role of Institutions in the Real World”
2016, May 26-28
Fourth annual conference organized by CAS-SEE.
In cooperation with the LabOnt – Department of Philosophy, University of Torino, the Center for Advanced Studies – South-East Europe, University of Rijeka is organizing a conference dedicated to the institution, (new) institutional realism and real world theory.

Description. Political, social, economic, and legal institutions exert a great impact on the lives of individuals as social beings, as well as on those individuals' own understanding of themselves, their potentialities, and aspirations. In big societies, institutions also offer information regarding what others do or tend to do. Still, in the last thirty years, both in political theory and in practice, the role of institutions has been seriously threatened by an ideological struggle against the welfare state and by a growing emphasis on individual responsibility and an individualist ethos. Once again we find ourselves having to examine the importance of the role of social institutions, their nature as actors, as well as their mutual influences. Although institutions theoretically strive towards a better society, we think it important to begin with real world facts, that is, with a “new institutional realism” that attempts to understand and explain how various (legal, social, and political) institutions actually condition and influence one another, thus shaping the lives of individuals. Such influences, while seeking a betterment of social life, sometimes also restrict and diminish what might otherwise be a spontaneous exercise of collaborative and optimizing collective actions. ‎Both the constructive and the retractive or restrictive effects of institutions on human life make up the reality of the institution. Another key role for institutions is in balancing perceptions and the various angles of social justice. Rawls famously described this balancing act as the quest of an equilibrium between rational or intellectual arguments about what is just, on the one hand, and the intuitive grasp of justice within a political culture, on the other. Such balancing acts between arguments, intuitions and, increasingly, emotions (particularly strongly emphasized by Robert Solomon and others) ‎are entrusted to institutions in various social and value-contexts. How well they are equipped to perform such acts influences both the quality of the respective political systems and, more practically, the quality of people's lives. All these and many other aspects of the institution will be addressed by the conference, with a view both of advancing our theoretical grasp of the institution and our practical understanding and ability to influence and benefit from institutions in their myriad roles - whether regulative, that of service-provision, or, more controversially, that of conceptual and value-clarification or community-building.

EXSY Reading Group
Lisboa, December 9

Reading Group on the Extended Synthesis. Fourth Session
C4.3. Meeting room, Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa - Campo grande, h. 11 - 13
Discussion on Pigliucci, M., Finkelman, L. "The Extended (Evolutionary) Synthesis Debate: Where Science Meets Philosophy", BioScience Advance Access published May 7, 2014 

EXSY Reading Group is an interdisciplinary reading group organized by Elena Casetta, Nathalie Gontier, and Davide Vecchi. The reading group is devoted to analysing the evolutionary literature on the putative amendments required by the Modern Evolutionary Synthesis. Scholars coming from different evolutionary fields have highlighted a variety of processes and phenomena neglected by the Modern Synthesis. In a first phase, we plan to analyse the literature in order to, in a second phase, discuss how to best characterise the so-called "extension" that is required.

Les rencontres philosophiques de Monaco: Aimer, mentir, trahir
Monaco, 10 décembre

Théâtre Princesse Grace, 12 Avenue d'Ostende, Monaco - 98000, 19h-21h
Paul Audi, philosophe, Monique Canto-Sperber, philosophe, Michel Erman, philosophe et linguiste
Résumé. Tout amour porte en lui une promesse. Mais si la promesse ne peut se donner qu’en supposant l’impossibilité de la tenir, comment ne pas y voir déjà une logique mensongére et l’inévitabilité d’une trahison? La promesse d’amour, pour se dire vraiment, est-elle toujours assujettie à la pure transparence ou bien doit elle aussi se réserver dans une certaine obliquité ? Aimer est-ce « tout » dire ou bien se garder de dire « tout » ? Peut-on mentir et trahir par fidélité à l’amour? Ou aimer dans l’infidélité mensongère et traîtresse?
