In evidenza



In libreria:

F. Cimatti, L. Caffo: A come Animale. Voci per un bestiario dei sentimenti, Bompiani
http://www.bompiani.eu/libri/a-come-animale/
È un bestiario ma non vi spiega come convivere con i gatti o come capire il “linguaggio” dei cani: è un libro che parla soprattutto di noi umani, e dell’animalità che attraversa le nostre vite. Un alfabeto della diversità che racconta da più punti di vista - attraverso la filosofia, la storia dell’arte, la scienza - il rapporto simbiotico tra l’uomo e il mondo animale. Un percorso curioso per scoprire che gli animali sono ovunque, dalle foto di famiglia alla filosofia di Hegel, mentre noi sappiamo molto più delle galassie distanti anni luce che dei desideri di un pesce rosso. Un piccolo atlante (non solo) filosofico, in cui gli animali sono il pretesto per parlare dell’uomo, delle sue passioni e delle sue paure.

MONIST
101:3 July 2018: Food
Advisory Editors: Tiziana Andina (tiziana.andina@unito.it), Carola Barbero (carola.barbero@unito.it), Carolyn Korsmeyer (ckors@buffalo.edu)
Deadline for submissions: July 31, 2017
Food is normally considered as something natural, but there are good reasons to consider it also as belonging to the realm of artifacts and sometimes even as rising to the level of works of art. Food contributes to building that part of our human identity that has to do with culture and tradition and with social standing. Our relationship with food can be healthy, but it can also take on the form of a disease. In this issue of The Monist, philosophers and representatives of disciplines such as psychology, economics, sociology, and medicine will attempt to investigate the role and value of food in our lives. What kind of object is food? How are we to classify it in our ontology? What are its functions in our lives?

RIVISTA DI ESTETICA
“Call for papers” – “Rivista di Estetica” (3/2016).
“Images between intermediality and interactivity” (3/2016).
Advisory Editor: Dario Cecchi

mail to dario.cecchi@gmail.com ; rivista.estetica@gmail.com
Deadline for submission: June 30, 2015.
The visual practice knew a considerable shift in the last twenty years, mainly due to the emergence of new media technologies. Recurring to medial strategies is increasingly fundamental for visual artists (Bansky, Blu Blu), in order to make available new exhibition spaces and creative opportunities. At the same time, media webs like social networks, wearing technologies and opensource platforms ask the users – above all in political and ludic contexts (Persepolis 2.0, Selma & Sofiane Ouissi, Google Glass, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube) – to display a higher “artistic” expertise in order to implement these devices. We witness a real aesthetic turn at all levels of the media practice.
On one side, this state of matter leads many theorists (Jenkins, Lovink, Rheingold, Shirky, Weinbgerger) to reconsider and develop Pierre Lévy’s idea that a new form of “collective intelligence” is emerging through new media: its implementation depends on peculiar perceptual, and more specifically aesthetic, reconfigurations of our life forms. On the other side, it becomes clear that images are not fixed on one single medium, but are transformed through processes of “remediation” and “premediation” (Belting, Bolter, Bredekamp, Grusin), or experimenting the “intermedial” and “interactive” impact of digital images (Antinucci, Casetti, Hagener, Lull, Montani, Spiegel, Stiegler, Stoltedijk). At this level, the artistic exploration of interactive and intermedial technologies points out to a new paradigm in the visual arts (Studio azzurro, Life in a Day, Italy in a Day).
This issue of the Rivista di estetica aims to address such and similar questions, exploring and reflecting on the most advanced examples of intermedial and interactive elaboration of digital images, at the intersection of aesthetics, art history, semiotics, media studies and political theory.

Homology and analogy: relationships and conceptual synthesis across philosophy, life sciences and arts.
Advisory Editor: Andrea Pinotti and Salvatore Tedesco

mail to: andrea.pinotti@unimi.it; saltedescoit@yahoo.it; rivista.estetica@gmail.com
Deadline for submission: March 30, 2015.
The special issue aims at analyzing uses and to understand the polarity homology/analogy across different conceptual fields in contemporary debates within philosophy, life sciences, and arts. The history of this conceptual pair shows the pervasive capacity to build relationships among different objects of knowledge and, much more interestingly, the possibility to achieve a conceptual synthesis of different methodological approaches. The concept of analogy establishes a relation of similarity among different features based on a functional consideration of the organisms, while the concept of homology sees the systemic identity of characters: it indicates the meaning (“Bedeutung” as Richard Owen says) of the shared character under any modification of form and function, thus allowing us to rethink the role of teleology and morphology in contemporary thought. Although widely employed, this categorial couple is far from being unanimously defined, offering a large provision of open questions. The distinction of different meanings of “function” and the renegotiation of the biological concepts of organism and biological act, focusing on a morphological account of modularity, encourages a conceptual synthesis among philosophy, arts, and life sciences.

HUMANA.MENTE - Journal of Philosophical Studies
Issue 28, April 2015
Experts and Expertise. Interdisciplinary Issues
Editors: Elisabetta Lalumera (University of Milano -Bicocca), Giovanni Tuzet (Bocconi University - Milano)
The role of experts is pervasive in the everyday life of both individuals and communities. At the collective level, governments and groups routinely delegate scientific, economic and technological decisions to experts; expert testimony plays a key role in legal contexts, and the evaluation of academic and scientific institutions is demanded to expert peers. At the individual level, each of us defers to experts for the correct understanding of concepts and word meanings in some domains, and trusts experts blindly at least in some cases. Finally, both communities and individuals face the problem of what to do when experts disagree. 
The study of experts and expertise lies at the intersection of cognitive and social psychology, epistemology, philosophy of law, and philosophy of language, but the various perspectives seldom meet together. For these reasons, it is timely to pose fundamental questions on the notions of expert and expertise in an interdisciplinary manner, so that issues raised within a specific debate may find solutions and integrations from other debates. The aim of this issue is to collect a variety of points of view on the topics of experts and expertise, with a special focus on the following issues:
What are experts?
What are the criteria for individuating them?
How does expert cognition differ from layperson cognition in specific domains?
Is it rational, and to what extent, to trust experts, provided that we cannot assess their competence?
What are the specific problems posed by expert testimony in legal contexts?
What is deference to experts in semantics and theories of concepts? Does it clash with intuitions of privileged first-person knowledge?
How should we characterize experts’ disagreement? What are we to do when experts disagree?

We selected the following invited authors from different disciplines (philosophy, psychology, law and economics):
  
Pascal Engel, EHESS Paris
Gloria Origgi, CNRS France
Susan Haack, University of Miami
Ron Allen, Northwestern School of Law
Christian Dahlman, Lund University
Carlo Martini, TINT Helsinki

Articles need to be clearly presented to be accessible even to no-specialist readers. They should be submitted in blind review format. Please omit any self-identifying information within the abstract and body of the paper. Furthermore, we invite to submit reviews of recent books (published after 2009), and commentaries of articles
and books that could be particularly interesting for the topics discussed in this issue.

Submissions should be sent via e-mail to elisabetta.lalumera@unimib.it and giovanni.tuzet@unibocconi.it
