Convegno. Il filosofo e l’artista. Il pensiero di Ludwig Wittgenstein e l’opera di Eduardo Paolozzi
Venezia, 23-25 novembre
Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Campo Santa Maria Formosa, Castello 5252 - Venezia

Da mercoledì 23 a venerdì 25 novembre 2016 si tiene presso la Fondazione Querini Stampalia un convegno internazionale dal titolo “Il filosofo e l’artista. Il pensiero di Ludwig Wittgenstein e l’opera di Eduardo Paolozzi”. Il Convegno, organizzato dal Dipartimento di Filosofia e Beni Culturali dell’Università Ca’ Foscari e dal Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici e del Patrimonio Culturale dell’Università di Udine, si propone di indagare i complessi rapporti tra il pensiero di uno dei maggiori filosofi del Novecento e l’esperienza artistica di uno dei rappresentanti più influenti dell’arte inglese e internazionale. Il Convegno prevede venti relazioni tenuti da filosofi, storici dell’arte, studiosi di estetica e di filosofia dell’arte provenienti da diversi Paesi; in concomitanza viene inaugurata presso il Dipartimento di Filosofia e Beni Culturali una piccola mostra su “Wittgenstein e Paolozzi”.

Labont Seminar.
Davide Vecchi (University of Lisbon). Evolution and its Three Explananda

Turin, November 23
Palazzo Nuovo, Aula 8, Via Sant'Ottavio 20

Abstract. A satisfactory theory of evolution should explain at least three striking features of life: adaptedness, diversity and complexity. Darwinism (e.g., Darwin’s evolutionism, the neo-darwinian interpretation of evolution or Modern Synthesis) arguably offers the most successful explanation of adaptedness and diversity available. I shall first review some of the central epistemological features of Darwinian explanations of adaptedness and diversity. I shall then explain why it is sometimes argued that the scope of Darwinism is not limited to “organic evolution” but that it encompasses the evolution of culture. I shall then conclude by pointing at some alleged limits of Darwinism, particularly concerning the explanation of complexity and the emergence of new levels of biological organisation.

Disintegrare la critica. Regressione, follia, scrittura
Milano, 19 novembre
Università degli Studi di Milano, Via Festa del Perdono, 7. ore 15.30

Coordina Andrea Pinotti.
Con Pierre Bayard e Sara Guindani.
Dove si pone il limite fra teoria e fiction? Dove la soglia fra storiografia e letteratura? E ancora: dove stabilire il confine fra infanzia e età adulta? Il discrimine fra normalità e follia? La riflessione di Pierre Bayard insiste sulla fragilità di queste e altre soglie, facendole interagire in una meditazione sulle molteplici istanze all’opera nel gesto della scrittura, che si rivela così intimamente polifonica ed esposta alla disintegrazione della soggettività. Saggista, scrittore e psicanalista, autore di Come parlare di un libro senza averlo mai letto e di Come parlare di luoghi senza esserci mai stati, Bayard ne discute in dialogo con Sara Guindani, studiosa di estetica e psicoanalisi, e autrice de Lo stereoscopio di Proust, Mimesis, Milano 2005.

C’è chi aspetta il treno, chi un bambino, chi la morte, qualcuno aspetta una lettera e qualcun altro l’amore. Ma che cos’è l’attesa? E poi, che differenza c’è tra attendere qualcosa che siamo certi arriverà rispetto all’attesa di qualcosa o qualcuno che forse non arriverà mai? In dialogo con Maurizio Ferraris, l’autrice cerca di rispondere, fra filosofia e letteratura, nella certezza che, come dice Pavese, «Aspettare è ancora un’occupazione. È non aspettar niente che è terribile».

Otello. Tre seminari tra letteratura, filosofia, teatro e musica
Roma, 28 novembre, 1 e 7 dicembre
Teatro Eliseo, Via Nazionale, 183, 00184 Roma

A cura di Giuseppe Di Giacomo. Universalmente riconosciuta come una delle opere imprescindibili della letteratura occidentale, l'Otello di Shakespeare nell'immaginario collettivo è la tragedia della gelosia, dell'irrefrenabile furore della passione e della debolezza del raziocino umani dinanzi all'orgoglio e al sospetto del tradimento; l'Otello è anche la tragedia del Male, incarnato da quella straordinaria invenzione letteraria che è Iago, l'infido Alfiere che trama diabolicamente alle spalle del Moro, sfruttando le debolezze di quest'ultimo. 
Le tre giornate dedicate all'Otello, in programma al Teatro Eliseo, intendono mettere in luce, attraverso la riflessione di illustri intellettuali ed esperti della materia, le molteplici implicazioni teoriche e filosofiche di quest'opera.

News on New Realism


Neuer Realismus gegen Relativismus und Konstruktivismus
W Brückner, in Erfahren-Benennen-Verstehen: Den Alltag unter die Lupe nehmen.  Festschrift für Michael Simon zum 60. Geburtstag, Waxmann Verlag, 2016

In seiner wissenschaftlichen Arbeit hat sich Michael Simon neben anderem stets intensiv mit der Geschichte des Faches Kulturanthropologie/Volkskunde beschäftigt und konsequent einen selbstreflexiven ethnologischen Ansatz verfolgt. Bei aller kritischen Distanz ist es ihm immer daran gelegen, zu konstruktiven, diskursfähigen Ergebnissen zu kommen. Anlässlich seines 60. Geburtstages wird nun die Gelegenheit genutzt, aus den Forschungsfeldern, zu denen er im Laufe seiner Wissenschaftlerkarriere auf unterschiedlichste Weise Gesprächsangebote unterbreitet hat, ein Themenbukett zu präsentieren: Interkulturalität, Namenkunde, Fach- und Methodengeschichte, Medikalkulturforschung, Visuelle Anthropologie, Migration, Krieg und Alltag, Regionalforschung, Biografieforschung – um die wichtigsten zu nennen. Viele der Autorinnen und Autoren dieser Festschrift greifen in ihren Beiträgen die Anregungen zum wissenschaftlichen Austausch auf, andere verweisen auf thematische Schnittmengen zwischen den Arbeitsgebieten des zu Ehrenden und ihren eigenen wissenschaftlichen Interessen – Gemeinsamkeiten aufweisend und Fächergrenzen überschreitend.

Il portale APhEx è aperto a diversi tipi di collaborazione da parte dei lettori. E' possibile inviare recensioni di libri e articoli o scrivere un pezzo per la rubrica "profili" e "temi". I contributi, la cui valutazione in vista della pubblicazione spetta alla redazione del sito, dovranno pervenire preferibilmente in formato Word e in modo conforme alle norme redazionali. Ogni proposta va preferibilmente concordata con la redazione.

1. Temi: Nei contributi di questa sezione, l'autore/autrice fornisce una visione panoramica e critica di un area di ricerca della filosofia analitica contemporanea attualmente in discussione, presentandone le teorie più significative e gli autori più influenti. L'obiettivo di questa sezione è di fornire al lettore e alla lettrice, anche non esperto o esperta del particolare settore filosofico, uno sguardo generale su una questione che abbia generato un dibattito senza necessariamente presentarne i dettagli dello sviluppo storico.

 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
Website

The relationship between philosophy and geography, especially in the european tradition, has gone overlooked. If we look briefly at the history of philosophy, we notice that only a few authors seems to show a deep interest to geographic knowledge. Only in recent years the analysis of the connections between philosophy and geography has gained interest, especially thanks to the classical works of authors such as Carl Schmitt, Michel Foucault, Claude Raffestin, Brian Harley and David Harvey, just to mention a few of the leading figures in this field of studies. The rapid development of similar studies is due mostly to the complex global conditions of today’s society, but also to the theoretical necessity to overcome a lack of communication existing the disciplines.

This lack of interest seems to be a real paradox, if one considers Strabo’s Geographica, one of the first examples of a systematic elaboration of geographic thought, which not only highlights a vague affinity between geography and philosophy highlighted, but also considers this affinity as a general methodology to study the universality of knowledge: “the science of Geography, which I now propose to investigate, is, I think, quite as much as any other science, a concern of the philosopher” (I, 3).

After all, 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.
  1. The most general topic to deal with in this issue concerns the mutual influence of geography and philosophy from an historical, political and theoretical point of view. When, why, and how has philosophy been influenced by geography, and viceversa?
  2. The second point we would like to develop is the relevance of geographical knowledge in the history of science, especially for the modern period, and its philosophical background.
  3. In the third place, the contributions should analyze the role of geography, especially the rising cartographic techniques in the so called “age of discovery”. This topic should be addressed both from a political and historical point of view.
  4. A fourth point involves the problematic legacy of Ptolemy’s doctrines in the modern age. Indeed, while astronomic discoveries were mostly influenced by Copernicus’ works, the revival of Ptolemy’s Geography provided the theoretical frameworks for the representation of the world according to the laws of perspective and its “canonization” in the famous atlases of modern age. The authors interested in this topic should focus their contributions on the impact of Ptolemy’s works on the modern geographical knowledge.
  5. A further, more theoretical point, deals with the question of a possible epistemology of geography. What is geographic knowledge? Is it autonomous from other forms of knowledge? How can we know something from a geographic knowledge? Is there such a thing as “truth” in the geographic knowledge?
  6. Finally there’s one last theme in need of a closer examination, related to a possible ontology of geographical concepts. What is a border? What is a place? What is a territory? Are the traditional tools of ontology able to answer such questions?

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).

COSTELLAZIONI
Website
Costellazioni, Anno II, n. 4, Realism in the arts (and beyond)
Deadline for submission: December 31, 2016 

In recent years, an overt turn back towards the domain of the real has occurred in the arts, with efforts in this direction being witnessed in the visual arts, in music, and in literature alike. In parallel, the status of reality within our linguistic, emotive, and cognitive practices continues to provoke a heated debate among philosophers.
Instead of such answers as might be supplied by rigid philosophical paradigms, it seems to us that the debate over the status of reality demands an open dialogue and the contribution of diverse modes of enquiry and reflection. Focussing primarily on realism in the arts (ranging from the visual arts to cinema, music, literature, etc.), we wish to approach the issue of realism from the angle of aesthetics and of the theories and criticism of art and literature, as well as in the light of the mutual contributions of philosophy and the sciences (which recently appear to have taken a new turn, as in the instance of the non-restrictive paradigm of cognitive processes with which neuroscience is currently engaged).
Contributions on the following topics are thus especially welcomed:
  1. The theoretical, philosophical, and scientific status of realism;
  2. Transformations in the notion of realism in the wake of the demise of strong ideologies and of the crisis of postmodernity;
  3. The real as experienced in the new media and in multimedia practices;
  4. The notion of mimesis in the light of emerging trends in the representation of reality;
  5. Realism as historical and political documentation, and as ethical or political claim;
  6. Developments in the arts arising from the need to narrate contemporary reality, and as reformulation of traditional artistic modes (as in the graphic novel, in street art, etc.)
Please send abstracts for proposals to rivistacostellazioni@gmail.com by December 31st 2016.

2nd World Congress on Logic and Religion. University of Warsaw, June 18-22, 2017
Deadline: 15 January, 2017 (http://www.uni-log.org/logos2017-cfp)
Website

The 2nd World Congress on Logic and Religion will be held at the University of Warsaw (Poland) on June 18-22, 2017, the institutional organiser being the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Warsaw (Instytut Filozofii, Uniwersytet Warszawski) (see the map).

The 1st World Congress on Logic and Religion was organized jointly by the Federal University of Campina Grande, the Federal University of Paraiba and the University of Brazil in João Pessoa, and held on April 1-5, 2015. It was devoted to a wide range of problems concerning the relations between logic and religion. At the conclusion of the congress, many participants expressed the wish to continue discussions on these topics in the future and also warmly welcomed the idea to organize such an event in Poland, which can be called a country of logic and religion thanks to both the tradition of Lvov-Warsaw School of logic and a considerable level of religiosity.

There are a number of important topics that are proposed be discussed at the 2nd World Congress on Logic and Religion in Warsaw, which include such fields as:

  • Impact of religious beliefs on logical structures;
  • Logic at the service of apologetics;
  • Rationalization of religious beliefs;
  • Justification in religious legal traditions (including Talmudic Logic);
  • Logics vis-a-vis illogicalities in religion;
  • Non-classical logics and religion;
  • Models of argumentation in religious discourse, etc.

It is our pleasure to invite you to join us in Warsaw.

The deadline for submission of an abstract is January 15, 2017.
In order to send your submission please go to the registration form.

The International Association for the Philosophy of Time (IAPT) is formed by the Philosophy of Time Society, the Centre for Time (Milan), and the Centre for Philosophy of Time (Sydney). 
The IAPT invites submissions of high quality papers for the 4th annual IAPT conference, to be held from 12th–14th June 2017, at the Palazzo Feltrinelli, Gargnano, Lake Garda, Italy.
The IAPT conference will involve five themed sessions with invited keynote speakers and several open sessions. The themed sessions (with keynotes) are as follows:

The Logic and Language of Time — Patrick Blackburn (Roskilde)
Time, Action, and Ethics — Jennifer Hornsby (Birkbeck)

Papers (suitable for a 25-30 minute presentation, and no longer than 5,000 words) should be submitted via EasyChair by 31st December 2016http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iapt2017

Submissions on any topic in the philosophy of time are welcomed. All papers must be prepared for blind review and include a short abstract. Early career scholars, e.g. graduate students, postdocs, pre-tenure faculty (etc.), are eligible for a prize bursary — participants awarded a prize will be entitled to reimbursement for conference expenses up to the value of $500.

NB. The conference fee is €230, which includes three nights lodging in the Palazzo (from Sunday 11th to Wednesday 14th June) and all meals.
