First Issue of Ardeth now available
Ardet #1 - Architectural Design Theory (1/2017)


Can the project of architecture be considered as a specific field for scientific research? Ardeth sets out to define this field as separated from architectural theory. If, in fact, architecture is a physical and social construction to which the whole world contributes, its discussion is – as it must – the legitimate object of a collective debate extended to the whole world. Whereas architectural design theory – within which the project is intended as the means to obtain effects in the transformation of the environment – can be considered as disciplinary knowledge with specific characteristics.

Ricomincia su RAI 5 "Opera aperta", il programma ideato e condotto da Maurizio Ferraris
Da “Opera Aperta” di Umberto Eco alla “Recherche” di Proust al “Faust” di Goethe passando da “Robinson Crusoe”, “Dracula” e le “Meditazioni Metafisiche” di Cartesio. Ci sono opere che servono molto di più dei tanti manuali di “self help”. Lo racconta Maurizio Ferraris nel nuovo programma di Rai Cultura “Opera Aperta”, realizzato con la collaborazione di Claudio Del Signore e di Gino Roncaglia, in onda da lunedì 22 maggio alle 23.05 su Rai5. In dodici puntate, ciascuna dedicata a un testo che introduce temi come la verità, il segreto, la felicità, la memoria, Maurizio Ferraris dialoga con quattro ospiti.

Opera Aperta - Puntata 7, 18 settembre
 Cosa è la realtà, come ci confrontiamo tutti i giorni con essa? Siamo consapevoli di quello a cui ci mette di fronte la realtà?  
Ne parlano con Maurizio Ferraris i filosofi Felice Cimatti e Mario De Caro, il critico letterario Raffaele Donnarumma, e la filosofa Daniela Angelucci.

 

Nuovi corsi al Politecnico di Torino: Filosofia dell'ingegneria e Tecniche della comunicazione e della scrittura
Il LabOnt è orgoglioso di annunciare due nuovi corsi a contratto inseriti nella programmazione del Politecnico di Torino: Filosofia dell'ingegneria, tenuto da Enrico Terrone (leggi la descrizione del corso) e Tecniche della comunicazione e della scrittura tenuto da Vincenzo Santarcangelo (leggi la descrizione del corso).

Postdoc Position "Aesthetics of Performative Environments: Immersivity, Agency, Avatar” - University of Milan

The Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan offers a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship on “Aesthetics of Performative Environments: Immersivity, Agency, Avatar”. The Fellow will carry out the activities at the Department of Philosophy of the Università degli Studi di Milano under the supervision of Andrea Pinotti and Chiara Cappelletto.

Description of the research project:  Immersive environments impact on artistic practices, professional applications, and everyday life. They convey a sense of embodiment, presence, and augmented existence. Interactivity via avatars opens up new affordances and agencies: novel forms of subjectivity are performed by theatrical and fictional experiences. Drawing on image-theory, theatre and performance studies, the candidate shall explore the phenomenological and epistemological implications of performative environments.

Knowledge of Italian is not required.

The DEADLINE for applications is OCTOBER 16th, 2017 at noon. All documents must be received by this date.  

Duration: Two-year renewable.

Grant: €21.000 gross per year. This sum is tax free.

Foundational Issues in Philosophical Semantics
The last 15 years have seen an explosion of renewed philosophical interest in semantics and its foundations. This renewed interest is partly due to an unprecedented collaboration between philosophers of language, linguists, computer scientists, and psychologists. This interdisciplinary effort that has led to breakthroughs on specific topics, such as, notably, the semantics of conditionals, of epistemic modals, deontic modals, imperatives, de se reports ,  non-factual language such as predicates of taste, moral language, and so on. In addition to specific results in the semantics of natural languages’ fragments, the exchange with linguists, computer scientists, and psychologists has also led to the widening of a discussion of foundational questions about the nature of meaning, such as:
  • Whether the meaning of sentences is to be modeled as static and truth-conditional, as traditionally understood, or dynamically, as an update on context.
  • Whether conventional meaning, plus eventually saturation of hidden variables, suffices to determine truth-conditional content, at least a “minimal” one, or whether it provides just a semantic potential that must be freely enriched with contextual information in order to get truth conditional content.
  • Whether the content that is conventionally encoded by a sentence coincides or not with its truth conditional/at issue meaning, or whether it exceeds its truth conditional content to include presuppositions, conventional implicatures and more generally “non-at-issue content”.
  • How to understand the semantics/pragmatics divide in the light of the complexity of the at issue/non-at-issue distinction, in the light of the phenomena of sarcasm and metaphor, and in the light of the debate between static and dynamic approaches to the study of languages
  • The nature of linguistic conventions and the study of their game-theoretical underpinnings.
  • The effect of question-sensitivity on the nature and structure of content.
  • Whether a sufficiently fine-grained notion of semantic content can be construed using the notion of truth-making.
  • Whether notions such as truth and reference, at the core of truth-conditional semantics, are really suitable for doing semantics of natural languages or whether one should abandon them in favour of other notions, such as use and instructions, assertibility conditions, inferential and conceptual role.
The aim of this conference is to bring together experts of the field to discuss and to assess some of these most recent advances on foundational issues in philosophical semantics.

World Congress of Philosophy 2018. Learning to be human
Deadline: 
October 1, 2017

Beijing, August 13-20, 2018

The World Congress of Philosophy is organized every five years by the International Federation of Philosophical Societies (FISP) in collaboration with one of its member societies. The XXIV World Congress will be held in Beijing, China, from August 13 to August 20, 2018, under the auspices of the Chinese Organizing Committee. The complementary aims of the 2018 Congress include an emphasis on exploring dimensions of the human and inquiring into the challenges facing humanity:

To globalize philosophical investigations to encompass the diverse forms of philosophizing by past and present thinkers across cultures, with special attention to critical reflections on philosophy itself and the tasks and functions of philosophy in the contemporary world.

To open the philosophical area to enable philosophers to address emerging global issues through fruitful interactions with other disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, with other activities in economic, social, political, and religious spheres, as well as with diverse cultures and traditions.

To encourage philosophical reflections to become public discourses on recurrent human concerns, such as ecology, justice, and peace.

***Submissions should not exceed 1,800 words (or 3,000 characters for papers submitted in Chinese), and should be accompanied by a 200 words abstract (500 characters in Chinese). The submission should include an indication, prominently displayed, of the section for which the contributed paper is intended and shall be written in one of the official languages of the Congress.

Online submission is open now.

All persons who want to participate in the Congress are welcome to submit their abstract and paper. Abstract and paper should be intended to one of the 99 Sections for contributed papers announced in the tab menu "Sections for Contributed papers"

Journals

Call for Papers: Linguistic Justice and Analytic Philosophy
Special issue of _Philosophical Papers_
Deadline: October 1st, 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).
