Highlights


Grande conférence internationale. NUMÉRIQUE ET MUTATIONS SOCIALES : UN PATRIMOINE EN DEVENIR
 
Québec, 11-20 May

Musée de la civilisation, 27 Rue Notre Dame, Ville de Québec, h.


Parce que le numérique rend possibles de nouvelles formes d’expression et d’importantes mutations sociales, on n’hésite plus à reconnaître l’existence d’une « culture numérique ». Celle-ci engage le rapport que les individus et les sociétés entretiennent avec des dispositifs numériques, leurs usages différenciés, les pratiques qui les mobilisent ou impliquent ces usages et l’ensemble des phénomènes qui en découlent. Si cette culture s’avère bien dotée d’une dimension matérielle en ce qu’elle repose d’abord et avant tout sur des objets, celle-ci implique également un nombre considérable d’objets immatériels, pour ne pas dire virtuels. Connaître et comprendre cette culture suppose de l’aborder dans une perspective interdisciplinaire sous une diversité d’angles, en considérant à la fois son caractère matériel et immatériel, mais également de reconnaître son historicité. En effet, la culture numérique est l’objet d’une histoire toujours en train de se faire, qui varie selon les sociétés et parfois selon les milieux et contextes sociaux. C’est parce que cette culture numérique est au cœur de l’expérience historique et du devenir de nos sociétés qu’il apparaît souhaitable d’en conserver et d’en valoriser des témoignages.

Memoria e azione
Avigliana, 5 maggio

Sala consiliare del Comune di Avigliana, piazza Conte Rosso 7, ore 15.30

Incontro con Gianluca Cuozzo. 

Un nuovo principio dell’agire etico, dal punto di vista di un pensiero ecosofico, potrebbe essere il seguente: agisci in modo che ogni tua azione sia sempre, in ogni momento del suo sviluppo teleologico, potenzialmente reversibile. Chi bene agisce, in tal caso, è un attore rivolto anzitutto all’indietro, capace di mettere in discussione i presupposti della propria prassi, di sciogliere il processo di deliberazione in modo alternativo a quanto è stato intrapreso. Ciò vuol dire essere dotati di una memoria prodigiosa, rispetto alla quale nulla deve essere considerato come perduto. L’espressione “ritornare sui propri passi”, un modo di dire apparentemente scontato, in realtà nasconde un grande principio etico; in essa si cela una disposizione d’animo che, tradizionalmente, è definita pentimento, assunzione di responsabilità, coscienza della possibile colpevolezza, nonché come il preservar memoria vigile dei sacrifici e delle rinunce cui mi ha indotto un determinato proposito – atteggiamento critico che ci porta a considerare, alla stregua di un fine in sé, qualsiasi tappa intermedia si frapponga fra il processo decisionale (deliberazione) e la prassi orientata a un fine che ne deriva (compimento, riuscita dell’azione).

Labont Seminar. Lorenzo Baravalle (Federal University of ABC), “Che cos’è l’evoluzione culturale?“
Torino, 18 maggio

Campus Luigi Einaudi, Lungo Dora Siena, Aula E3, 17.00-19.00

Senza dubbio le culture umane cambiano nel corso del tempo, ma questo significa che esse evolvono? Nel linguaggio di tutti i giorni, spesso usiamo la parola “evoluzione” come sinonimo di “cambiamento” e, dunque, la risposta a questa domanda potrebbe sembrare scontata. Tuttavia, anche ammettendo che sia così, quest’abitudine linguistica non ci dice molto riguardo al tipo di cambiamento che in cui consiste l’evoluzione culturale. Una moltitudine di biologi, antropologi e filosofi – fin dai tempi di Darwin – ha creduto che il cambiamento culturale potesse essere elucidato tramite la teoria della selezione naturale. Anche se negli ultimi anni questo progetto è stato parzialmente ridimensionato, ancora oggi si considera la biologia evolutiva come il modello per una teoria del cambiamento culturale. Ciò nonostante, non c’è consenso su quali caratteristiche dei processi evolutivi culturali sarebbero analoghe a quelle dei processi evolutivi naturali. Una tendenza piuttosto diffusa recentemente consiste nel ridurre al minimo l’analogia fra i due tipi di processi, comparandoli a semplici artefatti statistici. Al contrario, è mia intenzione difendere una versione forte dell’analogia, secondo la quale tanto gli agenti del cambiamento naturale quanto quelli del cambiamento culturale possono essere concepiti come genuine forze dell’evoluzione.

International conference „Realism in Design“
Dusseldorf, May 18-20

Hochschule Düsseldorf, Campus Derendorf, Building 4, Münsterstraße 156

For quite some time, one has been able to observe a return to realism in several academic disciplines. During a recent reorientation of the humanities, realism and materialism became important keywords in the intellectual discourse. There is now talk of speculative or new realism and transcendental or dialectical materialism. This return to realism and materialism is a reaction to the so-called “correlationism” (Quentin Meillasoux), which started with Kant right up to the development of phenomenology, hermeneutics, poststructuralism, and deconstruction and which has dominated the intellectual discourses of modernity and postmodernity.  Correlationism is based on the assumption that the world is fundamentally dependent on human thinking and discourse. The newly arising return to realism, on the other hand, endorses the idea that the world exists beyond subjective mediation. It focuses on a reality that is not primarily culturally, linguistically, or historically codified.

News on New Realism and Post-truth


La verità sulla post-verità
La Repubblica, 30 aprile 2017

La verità sulla post-verità. Sul nuovo numero di Robinson, in edicola domenica 30 aprile con Repubblica, la storia di copertina è dedicata al tema della post-verità: la scrittore Alessandro Baricco spiega perché “sarebbe bello se la smettessimo, tutti, di usare l’espressione ‘adesso che viviamo nell’epoca della post-verità’ perché è infondata e fuorviante” mentre il filosofo Maurizio Ferraris sostiene che la nozione è importante perché “mette in luce questioni che riguardano tutti”. Oltre a questo dibattito, su Robinson, troverete una lunga intervista di Paolo Cognetti ad Angela Terzani, in occasione dell’uscita di un libro di scritti sul marito Tiziano, una recensione speciale di Stefano Benni al nuovo romanzo di Pennac e un’intervista a John Lewis, amico di Martin Luther King, che racconta il graphic novel ispirato ai diritti civili in uscita in Italia dopo il successo negli Usa.    
Continua il concorso “Vince chi legge”, in collaborazione con Ibs.it, che mette in palio centinaia di buoni per l’acquisto on line di libri: basta avere sottomano una copia di Robinson e un telefono cellulare.  Infine lo Straparlando di Antonio Gnoli è con Edith Bruck.

I nuovi realismi, Bompiani, 2017
A cura di Sarah De Sanctis

Il termine ''nuovo realismo'' può essere a pieno titolo considerato la parola chiave della filosofia continentale contemporanea. In un movimento che abbraccia pensatori provenienti da tutto il mondo, questa corrente di pensiero si oppone all'antropocentrismo che ha caratterizzato la filosofia occidentale da Kant in poi, sostenendo un ritorno alla realtà oggettiva: c'è un mondo che esiste ''là fuori'', indipendente rispetto all'intelletto umano, che anzi resiste a quest'ultimo e ne smentisce ipotesi e aspettative. Questa raccolta di saggi include i contributi di diversi filosofi collegati al nuovo realismo nelle sue varie espressioni: Maurizio Ferraris, che ha reso il movimento celebre in Italia, Quentin Meillassoux, pensatore estremamente influente e principale ispiratore del realismo speculativo, Tristan Garcia, Markus Gabriel, Graham Harman, Peter Gratton e Lee Braver.

Publications


Law and the Arts Elective Affinities and Relationships of Tension, Werner Gephart / Jure Leko (Eds.)
VITTORIO KLOSTERMANN 2017
Webpage and summary

This volume documents the outcome of a working group regarding "Law and the Arts", which was organized by the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities "Law as Culture".

The collected contributions discuss the structural relationships and contradictions of law and the arts with the aim of bringing the spheres closer to each other again. The plea is therefore that the reciprocal potential for insight be better utilized not only through conceptualization, aesthetic reflection, and sensory appraisals, but also through aesthetic practice. Thus, this volume takes a look beyond the classical subject matter of law and literature and incorporates the increasing interest for visual cultures, yet also encourages new fields of research that relate to the hidden relationship between law and music as well as the colorfulness of law and law as sculpture.

It includes contributions by Tiziana Andina, Angela Condello e Enrico Terrone.

Democrazia   in replica il 13.05. alle 18.30


La democrazia ha prodotto benessere, libertà e pari opportunità ma oggi sembra perdere colpi. Maurizio Ferraris e Felice Cimatti in un serrato dibattito confrontano le loro opinioni su una tematica di interesse molto diffuso. Insieme discutono se va rivisto il suffragio universale, che non sempre sembra portare i risultati migliori ed essere realmente efficace, cercano di capire inoltre se i regimi cosiddetti “democratici” lo siano veramente. E infine si confrontano su quanto la democrazia sia ancora la forma di governo più efficace per mandare avanti un Paese.

 


Summer Schools


7th International Summer School in German Philosophy. Freedom and Free Will in Classical German Philosophy
Bonn, 10-21 July
IZPH NRW, Conference Room, Poppelsdorfer Allee 28


Keynote Speakers

  • Dr. Katerina Deligiorgi (Sussex)
  • Prof. Stephen Houlgate (Warwick)
  • Prof. Brian Leiter (Chicago)

The 7th International Summer School in German Philosophy will trace the central debates concerning the concepts of free will and political freedom in the Post-Kantian tradition. This course will attempt to provide a fairly comprehensive critical overview of the theories of political freedom and free will that were so central to Classical German Philosophy in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. We will begin by looking at the ideas of political freedom and free will as they developed among the ancient Greeks, in early Christianity and in Luther’s hugely influential essay The Freedom of a Christian (which influenced among others Kant, Schelling and Hegel). We will then move ahead to consider a family of compatibilist theories of free will that were developed around the middle of the eighteenth century (Hume, Wolff, and the early Kant). We will then briefly consider Kant’s liberal political philosophy and especially the unusual synthesis of incompatibilism and compatibilism that he developed in the Critical period (the Third Antinomy and the Second Critique).

From there, we will move to the Post-Kantian constellation and focus on selected texts by Schopenhauer, Schelling and Hegel. Arguably, the Post-Kantian philosophers confront Kant on metaphysical grounds in that they believe that Kant’s metaphysics of nature gives rise to a placement issue, as it is hard to see how human freedom could fit into a causally closed world-order of the type envisaged by Kant. Hegel, however, revises the Kantian framework in a radical way by attempting in effect to replace a metaphysical conception of free will with his conception of socio-political freedom as laid out in his Phenomenology of Spirit and his mature Philosophy of Right.

Our last focus will be Hegel, who can be seen as developing a distinctive multi-level theory of several different sorts of freedom, including free will, socio-political freedom, and what one might call metaphysical freedom. Finally, we shall consider Nietzsche’s views on free will, which are striking for their tendency to call both the idea of the will and the idea of its freedom radically into question.
The first week of this course will be run by Prof. Dr. Michael Forster, the second by Prof. Dr. Markus Gabriel. As always, we will invite a series of high-profile keynote speakers.

Applications:

Identity and Conservation of Contemporary Artworks: Duties and Responsibility. Registration is now open
Turin, 3-9 July
Centro Conservazione e Restauro La Venaria Reale, Turin

Labont (University of Turin) and the Foundation Centro per la Conservazione e il Restauro dei Beni Culturali “La Venaria Reale” are proud to announce their International Summer School: Identity and Conservation of Contemporary Artworks

"The works of Joseph Beuys, made with the use of organic material, degrade in time; Pier Paolo Calzolari instead uses stabilized natural materials. The works of Anselm and Wolfgang Laib require daily maintenance; the complex installations by Dieter Roth can only be reactivated by his son to whom he hands the work with instructions to install it.
Works of this type open up important questions: Which and how many variations can a work of art bear while still being the same? What are the margins of the owner’s intervention in terms of exhibition and conservation of the work? What role does the restorer play today?

Contemporary works of art imply a number of challenges both on the side of philosophy, for problems that concern their identity, and on the legal side, as regards their protection.
There are many contemporary materials, in addition to the more traditional ones: lights, smells, sounds, food, consumables and waste, to name just a few. All of them ask important questions in terms of preventive conservation and restoration. The summer school will examine the theoretical and practical issues raised by the contemporary arts in the context of law, philosophy and conservation. 

The examination of theoretical issues will take place by exploring the many case studies produced by the arts, and will unfold in dialogue with the artists and the industry. The theoretical work also provides a basis for the consideration of the structural characteristics and dynamics that characterize the contemporary art world.
Summer school registration is now open: click here

 NEW  The Association Amici della Reggia e del Centro di Restauro approved the granting of four scholarships of 450 euros per year, to partially cover the costs of enrollment at the Summer School. For information, please visit our website

Conferences

 NEW   META-FILOSOFIA. PENSARE LA FILOSOFIA TRA ATTIVITÀ E DISCIPLINA
Deadline: 1 Giugno 2017

Padova, 20-22 settembre 2017
Primo convegno della Società Italiana di Filosofia Teoretica  

Descrizione del convegno
In che modo dobbiamo concepire la filosofia? Si può dire che essa abbia una sua natura specifica? C’è un elemento che permette di tenere assieme la molteplicità di stili, approcci e metodi filosofici oggi esistenti? Oppure si tratta semplicemente di un insieme eterogeneo? La filosofia genera delle conoscenze autentiche? Va intesa come una terapia? Come si rapporta al suo passato? E in che modo si relaziona agli altri ambiti del sapere, scientifico e umanistico?
Il primo convegno della Società Italiana di Filosofia Teoretica è dedicato alle questioni fondamentali del dibattito meta-filosofico. Lo scopo è quello di esplorare in maniera globale e approfondita la domanda circa lo statuto della filosofia, affrontandone i più importanti aspetti teoretici, storici e metodologici.
Per rispondere a tali interrogativi, il convegno affronterà un ampio numero di temi quali il concetto di stile, il rapporto tra filosofia e conoscenza, la relazione tra filosofia e storia della filosofia, la pluralità di tradizioni filosofiche, il dibattito tra un’idea “costruttiva” e una “terapeutica” del filosofare, il rapporto tra la filosofia e le altre discipline scientifiche, il rapporto fra filosofia e discorso pubblico. In questo modo, il convegno si propone di far luce sulla natura della pratica e della disciplina filosofica, intesa nelle sue varie forme, mettendone a tema anche i risvolti odierni, sia teoretici che pratici.
Il convegno si terrà a Padova, dal 20 al 22 settembre 2017. Esso prevede delle sessioni plenarie, con relazioni di invited speakers, unite a sessioni parallele in cui verranno presentati contributi selezionati attraverso un call for abstracts.

  NEW  Ardeth #3: MONEY: The Economies of Architecture
Theme Editor: Jeremy Till
Deadline: 21 lug 2017

This special issue of Ardeth invites contributors to discuss the economies of architecture, with the following as potential areas to explore:

  • The Economies of Work: following Deamer et al, how are the various modes of architectural work (in practice, in education, in competitions) overseen by economic systems, and what are the possibilities to escape the dominance of the norms?
  • The Economies of Theory: the so-called ‘post-critical’ turn in architectural theory and practice may be read as at best a pragmatic acceptance of, at worst a complicity with, the prevailing economic orthodoxy. What types of theory might best provide a new critical edge that opens up that orthodoxy to inspection and transformation in an architectural context?
  • The Economies of Stuff: architectural operations are at heart about the manipulation of stuff, and this stuff is generally treated as commodity. What are the possibilities for new forms of the supply chain, of the commons, of reuse and so on that reconsider the use of stuff beyond its exchange value.
  • The Economies of Value: architecture, at least the 1% version of its stars, is employed to increase the cultural capital, and hence economic value, of development. Essays that investigate this process are invited, as well as those that look at the way that architecture might intervene in alternative value systems such those of social and environmental capital.
  • The Economies of the Future: with the spectre of the collapse of capitalism haunting much current political debate, we need to start thinking about other economic models and their spatial implications. This section of the issue asks how such alternative models might inflect on architectural operations, from the nature of practice to new spatial and material figurations.

Submission guidelines

 Articles should be written in standard English or Italian. Only original work will be considered for publication, i.e. outcomes of research conducted by the author/s which have not yet been published anywhere else and are not currently under review by any other journal.

Ardeth accepts manuscripts in two submission types: Peer Reviewed Manuscripts and Solicited Manuscripts. These manuscripts are primarily text based (length 3÷6,000 words including notes, captions, and references). Essays should be grounded in relevant discourse, offer an original and critical contribution of a theoretical or a more empirical nature, and be supported by appropriate visual apparatus. Images have an argumentative and not illustrative nature.

Manuscripts should be sent to the Editorial Board specifying the call for papers the manuscript answers to (i.e. Ardeth #3_Money): redazione@ardeth.eu

Detailed guidelines are available on the magazine website: www.ardeth.eu


International Association for Critical Realism 2017 Annual Conference.
HUMAN EMANCIPATION AND THE PROBLEM OF VIOLENCE

Extended Deadline: May 30, 2017

How do we understand human emancipation and the problem of violence in modern societies today? Violence as a philosophical problem of the modern age, has to be understood in terms of the public and institutional act of legitimating, justifying or ennobling its use in line with modern cultural or political programs. In this scenario, the social sciences are in danger of becoming a sounding board for dominant ideological thought, their task to clothe the narratives of the power elite with a pseudo-scientific aura. In its original and dialectical forms, and with its later discovery of metaReality; with its understanding of human emancipation, human history, ideology, and the relationship between human science and natural order, Critical Realism offers a variety of entry points able to resist this danger. 

The conference invites papers from those interested in critical realism in its different forms, and with a broad interest in the issues contained in the theme. It is intended also to be the occasion for a meeting and dialogue between two different traditions of contemporary realist thought, Critical Realism and New Realism. Turin is the birthplace of New Realism, the philosophical theory founded by Maurizio Ferraris. It has described a set of structures forming social reality and making it possible. Among these, one of the most remarkable is that of documentality, “document-constructed society”, which creates social objects by recording acts. Documentality, the overlapping of documentality and documediality in the web age”, underlies governmentality, which makes power effective in social reality.

In these perspectives, the conference will also address the following topics too:

  • So called “global terrorism”, not-declared wars and emergence in international relations;
  • The illiberal and mystifying mainstream communication;
  • The pressure of economic-financial power on democratic governments;

18th International Roundtable for the Semiotics of Law. Singularity, Generality and Exemplarity in Legal Discourse
(IRSL 2017, hosted by the Cardozo Law School  in collaboration with the University of Roma Tre – Law School), will take place from 25 May to 28 May 2017.

The use and practice of exemplarity are rooted in classic rhetoric, literature, politics and law. Because of the shift from pre-modern to modern ways of thinking – as modern knowledge came to privilege abstraction over exempla, the general over the singular and particular – exemplarity lost its way. The aim of this Roundtable is to discuss how in the contemporary legal discourse exemplarity regained relevance in human and legal thought: it constitutes the “compromise” between different orders: positive law (civil law, common law) and natural law, general and particular, abstract and concrete, societal and individual. Exemplary judgments (at a national and at an international level, e.g. Landgericht Köln – N. 151 Ns 169/11; Enel v. Costa; Scordino v. Italy) bridge the divide between traditional dichotomies, such as Common Law/Civil Law and positive law/natural law — by linking the ordinary (cases that are already described by a norm, which provides for them) and the extreme (cases that challenge the normative order because they are not yet provided for by law).

CALL FOR PAPERS/ABSTRACTS

Abstracts of 300 words (max.) can be submitted by 1 December 2016 to Angela Condello (angela.condello@uniroma3.it) and Peter Goodrich (goodrich@yu.edu) with participation decisions made by 1 January 2017.

Dossier Sens public. L’ontologie du numérique. Entre mimésis et réalité
1er juillet: remise des textes

Dans sa longue notice (auto)biographique publiée sur Le Tiers livre, François Bon prédit en ces termes la fin de sa vie et l'aboutissement de son oeuvre : Évolution progressive et définitive du site Tiers Livre en arborescence d’oeuvre transmedia et préparation d’un verre sphérique inaltérable et indestructible incluant la totalité de cette oeuvre unique.
Déclare dans son dernier billet de blog : “J’aurais pu faire ma vie autrement, mais je n’y avais pas pensé avant”. Cependant, la révélation que l’auteur habitait depuis de nombreuses années dans son site Internet provoque un certain émoi et beaucoup de sensation et d’interrogation dans le monde numérique et littéraire.
Non sans humour, l'écrivain souligne la fusion qui s’opère aujourd’hui entre les espaces numérique et non numérique, ou du moins le brouillage constant des frontières entre ce qui relève traditionnellement du « réel » et de l'« imaginaire ». En vérité, ce brouillage n’a rien d’inédit, aussi dirons-nous que le numérique permet de réinvestir certaines problématiques ontologiques qui ont traversé l’histoire de la pensée – en y ajoutant au passage ses propres paradoxes.
D’un côté en effet, la notion de représentation a été largement utilisée pour analyser l’effet de nos écrans numériques, bien que l’on puisse regretter l’aspect restrictif d’une telle approche qui, essentiellement concentrée sur la dimension visuelle des médias numériques, occulte tout ce qui se trouve du côté des pratiques – l’analyse du concept d’interface, proposée par Alexander Galloway permet d’ailleurs d’y remédier (Galloway, 2012). D’un autre côté, le terme « réalité » (augmentée ou virtuelle) n’a cessé d’être convoqué afin de définir le statut des mondes numériques – l’adjectif « virtuel » ayant alors pour fonction d’affirmer une progressive perte de la matérialité du rapport avec l'espace dit réel (Serres 1994, Koepsell 2000, Virilio 1996). Aujourd’hui enfin, de plus en plus de chercheurs s’accordent à dire que nous vivons dans un espace hybride (Beaude 2012, Vitali-Rosati, 2012, Floridi 2014), où les distinctions entre réel et numérique n’ont plus de sens…

Dans ce contexte, les narrations transmédia s’emploient elles aussi à repousser les frontières entre mondes fictionnels et monde(s) réel(s), en s’appuyant notamment l’engagement des spectateurs (Jenkins, 2008). Les produits en réalité augmentée mélangent désormais la vision du monde qui nous entoure avec des éléments ludiques ou issus de la fiction. Le statut de ces nouvelles narrations est complexe : comment qualifier les tweets de Clara Beaudoux dans son Madeleine project, ou ceux de Guillaume Vissac dans Accident de personne ? Comment décrire le projet tentaculaire qui se construit depuis près de 20 ans autour du Général Instin, investissant l'espace web autant que l'espace urbain ? S'agit-il d'écriture documentaire, journalistique ou fictive ? Cette question est-elle encore seulement pertinente ? Quel est le statut de produits comme le jeu Pokemon Go ou les Street view trek proposés par Google ? Si le brouillage des frontières ontologiques est devenu un caractère constitutif du numérique, il n’en soulève pas moins de nombreuses questions : peut-on véritablement déclarer que les notions de représentation, de réel, ou de virtuel sont définitivement périmées? Ou faudrait-il, au contraire, réaffirmer leur intérêt et leur pertinence, du moins d’un point de vue heuristique ? Peut-on parler d’une problématique « ontologique » dans la culture numérique ou s'agit-il d’une querelle de mots ?

Ce dossier se conçoit comme un champ d'exploration de ces problématiques, dans une perspective résolument interdisciplinaire, accueillant tout autant la philosophie, l’esthétique, les études littéraires, la sémiologie, la sociologie ou les sciences de l’information et de la communication. Des arts numériques à la littérature hypermédiatique, en passant par les web documentaires et les jeux vidéo, de nombreux domaines permettent en effet d’investiguer ces dichotomies apparemment périlleuses entre représentation et réalité, réel et imaginaire, fiction et documentaire… Parmi les sujets traités, pourront notamment figurer (à titre indicatif) :


- le rapport entre espace numérique et espace non numérique
- les récits de soi
- les créations en réalité virtuelle
- la réalité augmentée
- les interactions entre jeux vidéos et monde réel
- le rôle documentaire des produits numériques (web documentaires, web-séries…)
- les récits transmédia et l’engagement des publics
- l'emploi du web sémantique ou des objets à des fins créatives
- l'actualité du concept de mimesis
- les enjeux du concept de vérité à l'époque du numérique

Les textes, compris entre 35 000 à 60 000 signes (illustrations bienvenues), doivent être adressés à la rédaction de Sens public (redaction@sens-public.org).

- 1er juillet : remise des textes
- 31 août : avis d'acceptation

Special Issue - Philosophy and Geography: History and Theory  
The Journal of Interdisciplinary History of Ideas launches a call for papers on the historical connections between philosophy and geography
Deadline: May 15, 2017

Man’s geographic position is one of the most fascinating topic of the entire history of philosophy from its very beginning. For instance Anaximander was the first, at least in the Western World, who drew a map of the known world. And Thales had already conceived the Earth as a body floating in waters, implicitly defining a radical dichotomy between land and sea, establishing for the first time one of the most important categories of political and legal philosophy developed in the 20th century primarily by Carl Schmitt. The aim of this issue of the Journal of Interdisciplinary History of Ideas is to answer the many relevant questions concerning the historical connections between philosophy and geography, exploring the possible theoretical intersections between them to which this history points.
More:  Website

The special issue of the Journal of Interdisciplinary History of Ideas on Philosophy and Geography is planned for the end of 2017. Deadlines: Articles, along with a 300-words abstract and keywords, must be submitted before May 15, 2017.

Submission: Submissions must contain original and unpublished work. Contributions are ex­pected to adopt a genuinely interdisciplinary perspective in the history of ideas. Submitted articles may be written in English or French, and shall be sent to the fol­lowing e-mail address: phil_geo@jihi.eu

All submitted articles will undergo a double-blind review process. The text can be provided in .odt, .doc, .docx, or .pdf format, and must not include authors’ names and affiliations (pay attention to metadata and file properties), nor self-references that re­veal the author’s identity.
Contacts: For further information, please contact the editors of the special issue:

Simone Mammola (sokrates@alice.it)
Ernesto Sferrazza Papa (ernesto.sferrazza.papa@gmail.com)

Authors are welcome to discuss their prospective contributions with the editors be­fore submission.


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).
