    Anchoring Work Package B

    The concept that is central in “Anchoring Innovation” is “anchoring”, connecting what is perceived as new to what is deemed already familiar. “Anchoring” has a substantial social-psychological component. It may depend on the way in which relevant social groups categorize conceptually and linguistically what they perceive as new; it relates to the way in which new input (of whichever nature) is processed cognitively, including what emotional reactions such input elicits; and to the way in which “the new” fits into the value systems of such groups (this includes the ways in which they relate to the past).

    Socrates at the agora: what is philosophy capable of?

    Le but de ce colloque international est de déterminer le rôle et le statut de la parole philosophique dans la philosophie pratique antique et moderne en appréhendant de manière transversale certaines dimensions qui relèvent de la parole philosophique telle qu’elle prend forme dans certaines pratiques modernes qui se réclament d’elle. Le regain d’intérêt contemporain pour la philosophie pratique permet de considérer que le temps est venu de tenter de tirer au clair comment les philosophes et les professionnels modernes ont retrouvé le chemin de l’agora et d’entamer une réflexion sur les enjeux philosophiques, éthiques et politiques de la parole philosophique et des pratiques dans lesquelles cette parole prend forme et s’exerce.

    Special issue of the South African Journal of Philosophy

    What is happiness and how do we know when we have achieved it? Why do we desire happiness, and should we desire it? Is happiness a mental state or a prudential value, a subjective experience or the fulfilment of objective criteria, the satisfaction of desire or a measure of overall well-being? Is happiness culturally determined? What is the relationship between happiness and the good? What can the history of philosophy teach us about the idea of happiness? This special issue of the South African Journal of Philosophy invites contributions on these and other philosophical questions related to happiness.

    Life and Mind. Aristotelian themes in contemporary philosophy

    Despite the interest in exploring Aristotelian themes in contemporary philosophy, there has been no coordinated attempt to survey or integrate the ways in which Aristotle’s approach to understanding life, mind, and the relation between them might inform and enrich our own. The objective of this workshop is to explore the way in which Aristotelian thought can brought to bear on contemporary research on the much-debated issue of the so-called mind-body problem and on its implications for the conceptualization of notions such as that of organism, animal and human perception and action, human moral agency, and the relation between mind and life.
