München, 20./21. Mai

Workshop: Causality in Hegel / Kausalität bei Hegel

LMU Munich, May 20-21, 2017

Organized by Christopher Yeomans (Purdue University / LMU Munich) and Ansgar Lyssy (LMU Munich)

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the various conceptions of causation at play in Hegel’s philosophy and its development.

While historical conceptions of causality have recently managed to attract comprehensive attention, many researchers have largely ignored Hegel’s take on this issue. This is a striking contrast to the fact that the concept of causality plays a major role in Hegel’s philosophy. It plays a role in the early Dissertatio, it is discussed both in Hegel’s early systematic writings in Jena and in his writings on natural philosophy. It is closely connected to the concept of force in the Phenomenology of Spirit and receives detailed attention in the Science of Logic and the Encyclopedia.

We are interested in understanding Hegel’s particular concept of causation, its development and its function within the overall outline of Hegel’s system. It is apparently closely related to the concepts of objectivity, mechanism, chemism and teleology, but also to force, progress, action, development, contingency, nature and laws of nature. It still has to be understood how his concept of causation is influential for his philosophy of science, his philosophy of nature, his critiques of atomism and traditional substantivist metaphysics, and for his own outline of rationalist metaphysics.

The conference aims at providing a space for fruitful exchanges between established scholars, junior researchers and PhD students.

Reasoning and Argumentation in Science

Internationale Tagung unter Leitung von Benjamin Eva, Ph.D., Prof. Dr. Stephan Hartmann und Karolina Krzyżanowska, Ph.D., (CAS Senior Researcher in Residence).

31.05.2017 – 02.06.2017

Zum Vergrößern klicken

Progress in science is not only a matter of new models and theories, but also of new ways of reasoning and arguing for specific conclusions. In this conference, we focus on these epistemological features of science and consider the following questions: Which new reasoning and argumentation schemes do contemporary scientists use? How are these schemes justified, and how can they be assessed? Is it possible to come up with a unified normative theory of reasoning and argumentation in science? The conference focuses on reasoning and argumentation in the sciences in general, but there will also be a special focus on reasoning in specific natural and social sciences.

  1. Topics of the conference will include, but are not limited to: The general classification and analysis of patterns of reasoning and argumentation used in contemporary science.
  2. The philosophical and formal investigation of specific instances of the application of non-standard forms of reasoning and argumentation in the natural and social sciences.
  3. The application of logical and probabilistic methods to the study of scientific reasoning and argumentation.

Keynote Speakers: Catarina Dutilh-Novaes (Groningen) • Christian List (LSE) • Wayne Myrvold (Western University)

  Humankind and Humanity in the Philosophy of the Enlightenment
Infos: Ort: LMU München
Beginn: 08.06.2017 08:30
Ende: 10.06.2017 14:00
Text: In the 18th century philosophy turns towards human nature, treating it not only as a topic of inquiry, but also increasingly as a foundational concept and a methodical starting point. This new approach goes along with several conceptual shifts. Concepts such as “humankind”, “formation”, “culture”, “progress”, “vocation of man”, “enlightenment” etc. emerge conjointly and quickly become key notions, connecting both descriptive and normative approaches to human life and human nature. Philosophers use these terms to express their growing awareness of the difference or conflict between what humans are and what they, by themselves, can or should be; and they often conceive this tension within a historical perspective on human development. Within this context, the concept of “humankind” seems to acquire a central status with utmost relevance to the Enlightenment project and its normative demands. The debate concerning the nature of! “humankind” goes beyond the mere description of what one may call the “human species”; it also often concerns the idea that humans form a particular society and obey particular social, civil, moral or “humane” standards. In other words, true humanity, as a moral and social ideal, only seems to be attainable within a collective framework and within a broader development of humankind and, thus, human nature.

Dimensions of Poverty Conference Berlin 2017

CONFERENCE 7-9 JUNE 2017, HAUS DER KULTUREN DER WELT, Berlin

 

Organizers

Dr. Valentin Beck, Prof. Dr. Stefan Gosepath, Prof. Dr. Henning Hahn, Dr. Robert Lepenies

Centre for Advanced Studies (Kolleg-Forschergruppe) Justitia Amplificata (“Rethinking Justice – Applied and Global”) of Freie Universität Berlin & Goethe-Universität of Frankfurt am Main

All travel and accommodation to participants is being financed by KFG Justitia Amplificata. We are grateful for the cooperation with YSI INET and support from the Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

Conference Description

This conference seeks to assemble fresh theoretical perspectives on absolute and relative poverty within and between nations. It addresses questions in three sections which are aligned with three different dimensions of poverty research. These are: the normative categories of measurement and their uses in measurement practice; the blind spots and global asymmetries within academic poverty research itself; and the role of normative theorists in public debates on fighting global poverty through public policies and private donations. All three sections will feature keynote lectures by highly distinguished academics who have contributed groundbreaking work to the conference issues. Each section will also feature talks from experts who will be addressing an array of more specific research questions.

Measurement

Absolute and relative poverty are still standardly measured and evaluated in monetary terms. Philosophers and development economists, beginning with Amartya Sen, have highlighted the shortfalls of one-dimensional monetary metrics. They argue convincingly that a multidimensional metric, such as the capabilities approach, must be applied in the measurement of both relative and absolute poverty. However, questions remain concerning the relation of capabilities to other competing multidimensional metrics as well as concerning their exact formulation and application. This section will address such general philosophical concerns, as well as more specific applied concerns, such as the challenges of developing a plausible and reliable multidimensional international poverty line which would allow researchers to count the number of individuals living in poverty worldwide. Participants are also invited to discuss whether political and legal processes for implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be made more responsive to insights yielded by the academic debate on the measurement of absolute and relative poverty.

Research Asymmetries

This section will invite reflections on the challenges of poverty research itself. Sound scholarship on poverty, inequality and sustainability is immensely important. However, poverty research itself is not very globalized; whether in policy debates or on the editorial boards of highly regarded academic journals, voices and perspectives from the Global South are often sidelined. We will ask which areas of poverty research are dramatically under-researched, and what methods are under- and over-utilized. Does the state of poverty research raise questions of epistemic (in)justice? We will also explore the frames and narratives that have shaped poverty-related policy to date, and the challenge this poses for future research.

Theory & Activism

Many philosophers and normative theorists aim to reconcile their academic and political responsibilities. As a result, some political philosophers have become advocates for political change and ultimately political activists themselves. Is there any deeper or even necessary correlation between normative analysis and political engagement? In this section, participants are invited to raise questions of both principles and application regarding academic activism. The goal is not only to shed light on existing initiatives to fight poverty, but also to address more fundamental questions on academic activism and on the public role of normative theorists in general. We will therefore be asking academic activists to present their concrete initiatives, in order to reflect on the normative grounds, methods, and motives of their activities. Contributors are invited to share experiences and strategies for informing policies and creating the greatest impact.

Conference: Anticipating Democratic Alternatives. The Demise of Futurity and the Future of Critique

June 8-9, 2017, University of Vienna, Department of Political Science

Organizers:  Oliver Marchart (University of Vienna) & Linda Zerilli (University of Chicago)

A widespread sense has evolved in the West that the only promise the future holds is one of worsening living conditions. Together with the loss of a sense of futurity, there appears to be a loss of concrete political alternatives. This demise of futurity is of utmost relevance for political theorists, as it has potentially devastating effects on the scope and status of political practice as well as critique. The central aim of this conference is to pose the question of how to recover a sense of futurity in critical thinking and the possibility of democratic alternatives. How can we rethink critique as an array of imaginative practices of freedom that disclose new ways of living and acting politically? And, can we gain a sense of how critique as “a possibility-disclosing practice” (Kompridis) can be revitalized in an anticipatory way through forms of prefiguration and pre-enactment?

Workshop Announcement:

"The Experimental Philosophy of Morality and Causation ? Perspectives from
Philosophy, Psychology, and Law"

The Ruhr University Bochum and the Experimental Philosophy Group Germany
are happy to announce a one-day workshop on Experimental Philosophy which
will take place on Tuesday, 13 June 2017 at Ruhr-University Bochum,
Germany.

Over the last two decades, philosophers have taken an increasing interest in
experimental approaches to philosophical questions. Experimental
philosophers use tools from a variety of empirical sciences, such as
psychology, sociology, linguistics, and neurosciences to engage with
questions as diverse as:

?          How do people make moral judgments?
?          What factors influence people?s moral intuitions?
?          How robust are moral intuitions?
?          What is justice?
?          How to people conceive of causal relations in the world?
?          What role do causal judgments play for the attribution of moral
responsibility?
?          Are philosophers the right people to actually give answers to all
these questions?



In this workshop, we would like to address these issues. Just in the spirit
of experimental philosophy, we believe that the best progress is made by
joining forces from different disciplines. We therefore invited seven
speakers from philosophy, psychology, and law.



Keynote speaker:
Edouard Machery (University of Pittsburgh)

Invited speakers:
Neele Engelmann (University of Goettingen)
Joachim Horvath (University of Cologne)
Lara Kirfel (University College London)
Stefan Magen (Ruhr University Bochum)

Nietzsche als anthropologischer Denker
Infos: Ort: Erfurt
Beginn: 12.07.2017 15:00
Ende: 14.07.2017 19:15
Text: Internationale Fachtagung „Nietzsche als anthropologischer Denker“ 12.–14. Juli 2017, Erfurt Veranstaltungsort: Großer Saal des Collegium Maius (Michaelisstraße 39) Im Zentrum der Tagung stehen die Fragen nach den Grundlagen und der Gestalt der Anthropologie Friedrich Nietzsches sowie nach ihren Einflüssen auf die Philosophische Anthropologie des 20.–21. Jahrhunderts. Nietzsche wird in diesem Lichte nicht nur als Kritiker zeitgenössischer Anthropologien (u.a. derjenigen der Klassischen deutschen Philosophie), sondern auch als Denker gesehen, dessen originelle philosophische Perspektive wesentlich auf anthropologischen Grundansichten beruht. Dabei wird auch die Frage behandelt, wie die anthropologischen Elemente in Nietzsches Philosophie im Kontext einer anti-anthropologischen Rezeption bei Heidegger und Foucault zu gewichten sind. Die Tagung soll eine Diskussion zwischen Nietzscheforschern und Spezialisten auf dem Gebiet der Philosophischen Anthropologie ermöglichen und aus der Zusammenführung beider Ansätze Perspektiven gewinnen, um die Bedeutung Nietzsches für moderne anthropologische Debatten zu reflektieren und zu bewerten. Die Tagung wird von Dr. Alexey Zhavoronkov vom Seminar für Philosophie der Universität Erfurt geleitet. Gefördert wird die Veranstaltung von der Fritz Thyssen Stiftung

Call for Abstracts:

PROGRESS IN SCIENCE AND SOCIETY – Workshop with Philip Kitcher

June 14, 2017 | Leibniz University Hannover | Deadline for submissions: March 12, 2017

Topic
Is the notion of progress suitable to analyze such disparate endeavors as science, ethics, the economy or society as a whole? If so, what conceptual assumptions does such a notion require? In a recent contribution, Philip Kitcher suggested that progress has to be understood as the successful attempt to solve pragmatic problems. Consequently, whether or not a development can be called progressive depends on the contextual aims of the involved agents. Since these aims can legitimately vary, progress is a local phenomenon. However, Kitcher also pursues a universalist strategy: Pragmatic problem solving should help to realize the all-embracing goal of creating a good life for all. For Kitcher, this “Ethical Project” reaches back to the early stages of human evolution and serves as the ultimate touchstone for progress. Science, for instance, makes progress if it is devoted to problems of human wellbeing and if it finds solutions to these problems that promote practical realizations of the good life.

In a one day workshop at Leibniz Universität Hannover, we will discuss the merits and challenges of the notion of progress. A special emphasis will be put on progress in science and ethics as well as the work of Philip Kitcher regarding these fields. However, progress in further areas (economy, law, politics) as well as contributions unrelated to Kitcher are also welcome. Philip Kitcher will be present at the workshop and give a keynote lecture. Furthermore, he will give a public evening lecture on Monday, March 12.

Submissions
We invite submissions for 30 minutes talks (plus 20 minutes discussion); there are four to five free slots. Please submit a short abstract including no more than 200 words and an extended abstract with no more than 750 words. Abstracts need to be submitted in an anonymized document (PDF or DOC) together with the title of the talk. Please send the document, attached to an email that states your name, affiliation and position as well as the title of the talk, to admissions@philos.uni-hannover.de. The deadline is March 12, 2017.

Consent: Its Nature and Normative Relevance

Conference at the Centre for Advanced Study in Bioethics

Consent can make the difference between visiting someone’s home and trespassing, between battery and surgery, and between rape and sex. A conference on 21–23 June 2017 will deal with some fundamental questions about consent.

The conference takes place at the Freiherr-von-Vincke-Haus. Participation is free, however, registration is required due to limited capacity. Please fill in our registration form and send it to our office at casb@wwu.de by 14 June 2017 latest.

"Consent: Its Nature and Normative Relevance"

By consenting to an agent’s action, we often seem to change its moral status, turning an action that is morally wrong into a permissible
one. Consent can, for instance, make the difference between visiting someone’s home and trespassing, between battery and surgery, and between rape and sex. Because of its relevance in cases like the ones just mentioned, consent plays an important role in, e.g., medical ethics and the philosophy of (criminal) law.

While it is uncontroversial that consent often does make a difference to the moral status of an action, this phenomenon also gives rise to a number of questions, such as: What exactly is consent? How does it affect the moral status of an action and the rights and obligations of the people involved in it? Why is consent morally relevant at all? What are the criteria for a person’s consent to be valid? The aim of this conference is to provide an occasion for discussing
these and other fundamental questions about consent.

Internationale Konferenz

 

Visual Reasoning and Intuition in Mathematics. From Kant’s Euclidicity to Digitalization“

 

Ort: Freie Universität Berlin, Institut für Philosophie, Souterrain

Zeit: 29. 06. - 01. 07. 2017

 

Organisatoren: Sybille Krämer, Özge Ekin, Martin Beck, Solvej Hartmann

DFG-Projekt: „Warum und mit welcher Berechtigung ist Kant Euklidianer?“

 

Geht es der Mathematik allein um Beweise? Auf der Suche nach ihrer Grundlegung wurde die Mathematik oft als uniformes Gebäude formaler Sätze begriffen. Eine praxeologische Perspektive der Mathematikphilosophie kehrt dieses Bild um. Sie betrachtet eine Pluralität mathematischer Tätigkeiten von Heuristik und Verfahren der Problemlösung bis hin zur Kommunikation, ebenso wie eine Diversität von Zugängen und Medien mathematischen Denkens. Die internationale Konferenz versteht sich als Beitrag zu einer praxeologischen Philosophie der Mathematik und nimmt dabei spezifisch die Rolle von Anschauung und Visualisierungen in den Blick.

 

Die Konferenz findet in englischer Sprache statt.

Wir bitten um vorherige Anmeldung. Kontakt: Özge Ekin (ozgeekin@zedat.fu-berlin.de)

2. Internationale Arbeitstagung für Didaktik der Philosophie und Ethik
Infos: Ort: Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt
Beginn: 30.06.2017 18:00
Ende: 02.07.2017 14:00
Text: Obwohl es sich bei der Didaktik der Philosophie und Ethik um eine noch recht junge wissenschaftliche Disziplin handelt, ist gerade in den letzten Jahren ein Prozess erheblicher Ausdifferenzierung zu beobachten. Die Palette der Gegenstände, Zugänge und Forschungsperspektiven hat sich heute stark pluralisiert. Im Rahmen der Tagung soll nun vor allem die praktische Relevanz der einzelnen Ansätze in den Fokus rücken: Welche Form von didaktischer Reflexion braucht es für eine professionelle Ausbildung von Ethik- und Philosophielehrern? Gerade mit Blick auf die aktuelle Neuordnung der Lehrerausbildung im Schulfach Ethik/Philosophie in Bayern ist diese Frage von hoher Aktualität. Die Tagung bringt hierzu internationalen Sachverstand zusammen und bietet ein Forum zur Diskussion für Wissenschaftler, Schulpraktiker und alle weiteren Interessierten. Abendvortrag: Julian Nida-Rümelin (München), weitere Vortragende: Stefan Applis (Erlangen), Bettina Bussmann (Salzburg), Klaus Feldmann (Wuppertal), Minkyung Kim (Chemnitz), Jonas Pfister (Bern) und Christian Thein (Mainz). Um Anmeldung (anita.wittmann@ku.de) wird gebeten.
