FILOSOFIA
Rivista annuale fondata nel 1950 da Augusto Guzzo
Deadline: April 4, 2016

How to submit
"Paura"
Platone (Teeteto) e Aristotele (Metafisica) facevano nascere la filosofia con la meraviglia. Il presente numero di “Filosofia” suggerisce la possibilità di assegnare un ruolo altrettanto importante alla paura. La filosofia dedica da sempre riflessioni al tema della paura. Soprattutto con l’età moderna, in particolare nell’opera di Thomas Hobbes, la paura si è presentata allo stesso tempo come un fecondo oggetto di riflessione e come un tema particolarmente urgente. Si possono facilmente trovare nell’attualità esempi della centralità della paura nella vita collettiva e individuale: la pervasiva e capillare esposizione al pericolo, l’emergere di fenomeni destabilizzanti come il terrorismo e i fondamentalismi religiosi, il profilarsi di una crisi ecologica apparentemente ineluttabile, la percezione della precarizzazione dell’esistenza prodotta dalla crisi economica e finanziaria. Rimane impossibile, in ogni caso, confrontarsi con questi fenomeni senza inquadrare il tema della paura all’interno di una cornice metafisica, religiosa, esistenziale e psicologica. Chi e che cosa fa paura oggi? Siamo ancora, o più che mai, soggetti paurosi? Quali conseguenze derivano da un rapporto pauroso con il mondo? Il presente numero di Filosofia prenderà in considerazione per la pubblicazione contributi che si rifacciano a una o più delle seguenti aree tematiche: La concezione della paura nella filosofia politica moderna; La paura nella storia della filosofia; Percorsi a partire dall’euristica della paura; Morfologie della paura (letteratura, arte, cinema e poesia); Estetizzazione della paura; Paura dell’alterità; Psicologia della paura (Ir)razionalità e paura; La paura da un punto di vista religioso, metafisico ed esistenziale; Ontologie della paura.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Antwerp. The postdoc will be part of Bence Nanay’s research group (funded by FWO, FP7 CIG and BOF UA) and will work with Professor Nanay. The length of the fellowship is one year.

Antwerp is commutable from a number of European cities, including Paris, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Cologne. The research group has five postdocs at the moment. 
There is no teaching obligations. The postdoctoral researchers is expected to work on joint projects with Professor Nanay. So the candidate should have a significant overlap of research interests with Nanay. In fact, one of the main selection criteria is the compatibility between the candidate's research project and Nanay's.
 It is desirable that the candidates have strong background in philosophy of mind in the analytic tradition and some background in the empirical sciences. Candidates are encouraged to email nanay@berkeley.edu if they have doubts about whether their profile matches this call. Candidates must have a PhD degree in philosophy (PhD has to be officially awarded before the staring date).   
 In the light of recent findings on implicit bias, the candidates are asked to send their application material fully anonymized: Please send an anonymized cv, an anonymized max 5000 word writing sample and an anonymized max 1-page outline of what joint papers/projects the candidate envisages to write/have with Professor Nanay to nanay@berkeley.edu and have two letters of reference (which obviously shouldn't be anonymized) sent to the same email address. Please write ‘Postdoc: Phil Mind’ in the subject line of any email sent.
