Highlights


Der Trump-Tower in Chiacgo © delfi de la Rua/Unsplash


Sind wir an alldem schuld?

Von Bernhard Pörksen
Die Zeit - www.zeit.de

Neuerdings heißt es, mit Donald Trump und Wladimir Putin regiere die Beliebigkeit der Postmoderne, für die neue, autoritäre Weltordnung seien die Kultur- und Geisteswissenschaften verantwortlich. Das ist eine Verdrehung der Tatsachen.

"Der italienische Philosoph Maurizio Ferraris verdächtigt hingegen vor allem Silvio Berlusconi als postmodernen Illusionskünstler. In seinem Manifest des neuen Realismus – gleichsam der erste Akt des kleinen, fiesen Theaterstücks über die politischen Kollateralschäden des falschen Denkens – formuliert er schon 2012 den seither weltweit zitierten Satz: "Das, wovon die Postmodernen geträumt haben, haben die Populisten verwirklicht."

Convegno. Realismo, metafisica, modernità
Roma, 22 febbraio

Biblioteca Guglielmo Marconi, Piazzale Aldo Moro 7, ore 09.30

In margine al volume di Vittorio Possenti, Il realismo e la fine della filosofia moderna.
"Non desidero sostenere che la filosofia si rinnova soltanto con la metafisica, che non è l’appestato da cui guardarsi come osservava ironicamente Hegel. Vi sono più cammini: rinnovare la filosofia con l’antropologia, oggi paurosamente sbilanciata verso naturalismo e materialismo, che propagandano una concezione antieroica dell’esistenza, lodano l’io minimo e comico che tanti di noi sono, auspicano la fine della dimensione religiosa e contemplativa dell’esistenza e dello spazio del trascendente a favore della civiltà tecnologica. La filosofia si rinnova anche con la religione che include a un tempo protologia ed escatologia. In merito il rischio di oggi non è l’assorbimento idealistico della religione nella filosofia, ma la radicale obiezione empirista, positivista e scientista contro ogni fede e trascendenza. La filosofia si rinnova in vari modi ma in maniera più intensa e radicale mediante il discorso metafisico e l’impegno realistico. Le scienze nel loro campo sono necessarie; allontaniamo però l’illusione che possano dare risposte sul senso del tutto: non vi sono né mai vi saranno soluzioni scientifiche a problemi metafisici"

Somos almo más que nuestro cerebro
En 'Yo no soy mi cerebro, Filosofía de la mente para el siglo XXI' Markus Gabriel defiende una conciencia más humana y menos anatómica.

Atrapados en la posmodernidad desde numerosos ámbitos académicos y disciplinas científicas -otras, no tanto- nos muestran en extremo dependientes de una suerte de “encierro cerebral” que nos coarta cualquier tipo de independencia de criterio, interpretación o percepción de la realidad. La corriente filosófica denominada como Nuevo Realismo, cuyo manifiesto fue publicado por Maurizio Ferraris en el año 2012, aboga por una filosofía que, sin renunciar a la “realidad científica”, sea complementada, condicionada y hasta cuestionada.

Introduccion al Realismo Analogico, II edición
Jose Luis Jerez, Circulo Hermeneutico (2017)
 
El realismo analógico presentado por Jerez, se centra en la phrónesis o prudencia, es decir, es un realismo prudencial, proporcional, moderado, que se coloca en medio, en el intersticio, y acoge elementos tanto del sujeto como del objeto en el acto de conocimiento. Ya que procede de la hermenéutica analógica, este libro trata del univocismo, el equivocismo y la analogía. De este modo equilibra el mundo externo con el mundo interno, así como la ontología con la epistemología.

Human Emancipation and the Problem of Violence. International Association for Critical Realism 2017 Annual Conference
Turin, July 17-21
University of Turin, Campus Luigi Einaudi, Lungo Dora Siena 100

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.

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: 1 October, 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).
