    Time at the Turn of the Twentieth Century in American-British Philosophy

    Around the turn of the twentieth century, time became a major focus of American-British philosophy. Against a broadly Kantian-Hegelian backdrop, philosophers began developing new questions and theories about time. Shadworth Hodgson argued humans perceive a ‘specious present’, a short duration rather than an infinitesimally small one; this view was further developed by Mary Calkins and William James. J. M. E. McTaggart advanced a new argument for the unreality of time. A. N. Whitehead made time the foundation of his process philosophy. This event brings together philosophers from Europe and North America exploring this period that was to become defining for the contours of twentieth-century English-speaking philosophy of time. The event will deliberately be scheduled to be compatible with European and North American time zones.

    Penser le monde en philosophie après Kant

    Il s’agira de voir en quoi la prétention de constituer un monde se trouve frappée d’un aveu d’impuissance vu l’irréductible finitude de l’homme—trouvaille qui entachera durablement la phénoménologie. De nombreuses lectures phénoménologiques de Kant ont été proposées, à commencer par celles de Husserl, de Fink, de Heidegger, de Merleau-Ponty…Ce séminaire a pour objectif de questionner en profondeur la pertinence et les limites de telles lectures, à commencer par celle de Michaël Foessel. À travers ses ouvrages, notamment Kant et l’équivoque du monde (CNRS, 2015), Foessel vise à éclaircir le sens du monde chez Kant et analyse les répercussions de la conception kantienne du monde : nous proposons de nous interroger avec lui sur le monde après Kant.

    Epidemics and Nation-Building in Interwar East Central Europe

    The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic prompted a quest for historical parallels that help us contextualize this traumatic event.

The event, consisting of an expert panel and a seminar, focuses on the experience of interwar East Central Europe to explore these historical parallels.

    Death and Religion

    Death and religion share an interdependent relation. Where death is an event or state that threatens to disintegrate worlds and meaning, religion can be seen as a practice that categorizes, consoles and makes sense of this kind of disintegration. This special issue encourages scholars to contribute to this debate. Of special interest are situations in which religion becomes overbearing and a burden to carry forward in times of death, or if religious practices are obstructed, for example, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. How do these crisis situations affect the relationship between religion and death? This special issue aims at invoking curiosity, enquiry and interest in looking at the different facets of this topic.

    Kant’s Transcendental Dialectic

    A Re-Evaluation

    The “Transcendental Dialectic” was for a long time an insufficiently studied section of the “Critique of Pure Reason”. This is surprising, given that division two of the “Transcendental Logic” forms the largest part of Kant’s first Critique. Concentrating on the destructive side of Kant’s critical project, Kant’s critics and interpreters seem to have established an exegetical paradigm that left his positive account of transcendental ideas and metaphysics out of focus. With recent decades, however, there has come a huge wave of re-evaluation of the structure and function of the “Transcendental Dialectic”. The “other side” of the “Transcendental Dialectic”, and the role of metaphysics in science and more generally, have rightfully claimed their place among the most central topics in Kant research.

    The Society for Technology and Philosophy’s 2021 Technological Imaginaries Conference

    Technologies are always more than the sum of their mechanical parts. Indeed, technologies are entangled in symbolic forms of a social and cultural nature. Technologies also contribute to the construction of new worldviews and new forms of life. Technological imaginaries are far more than phantasies detached from technological innovation. They are at the heart of innovation itself, of the invention as well as of the implementation and use of technology in our societies.

    The Bible and Migration

    Open Theology invites submissions for the topical issue “The Bible and Migration”, prepared in collaboration with the conference The Bible on the Move: Toward a Biblical Theology of Migration, held at Fuller Theological Seminary in January 2020. This special issue asks how cutting-edge biblical scholarship should inform conversation about and action relating to migration in the twenty-first century, bridging the gap between biblical studies, theology, and activism. Articles should examine how the biblical texts reflect diverse migrant experiences, as well as ways in which these texts reflect theologically on migration and appropriate responses to it among migrants and host communities. Articles may also critically interrogate the Bible’s use in arguments over migration and migrants’ reception by host communities.

    Is the concept of sustainability misleading?

    Mixed Perspectives

    The Symposium will thus offer an excellent opportunity to question the concept of sustainability at the crossroads of our various disciplines and practices, in order to better understand and master the way it affects environmental research lato sensu. The ambition of this symposium will be to contribute to the emergence of a “new innovative sustainability science discipline” by questioning the misuse that may have been made of the concept over the last forty years, by reflecting on the means of ruling out such abuses, by rigorously drawing the contours of “environmental sustainability” and by trying to understand how it still makes sense.

    The Multidisciplinary Grid 2020 Conference

    The conference is aimed at examining the ‘grid’ as a cross-disciplinary theme with a multiplicity of expressions in terms of definitions, concepts, perceptions, representations, and histories. The ‘grid’ has played a significant role in shaping the spatial imaginaries of a wide range of fields: from Hippodamus of Miletus to the Cartesian revolution in mathematics, from the visual arts to archaeology to 'smart cities' and artificial intelligence. As the 'grid' has become an all-encompassing term, signifying a vast array of infrastructural and communication networks through which contemporary life is mediated and controlled, it is commonly viewed as a quintessential symbol of modernity. The conference strives to explore a new horizon of relationships and fusion of the ‘grids’ in these areas as manifested between humans, between machines, and between humans and machines ‒ bridging philosophical, cultural, pedagogical, technical and ethical issues.

    Delinquency, crimes and repression in History

    The question of delinquency, in the most general sense of the term, is particularly complex because criminologists, sociologists, psychologists, psychoanalysts, doctors, lawyers, and historians who have studied this subject extensively have often expressed very different and even contradictory opinions. Difficulties arise as soon as the phenomenon is to be defined. In French law, the word “delinquency” designates all types of offenses. These fall into three categories: transgressions; which constitute very light offenses, crimes which are at an intermediate level, and crimes among including murders, non-premeditated voluntary homicides, and the assassinations, premeditated voluntary homicides. In recent years, in many countries, rape has entered this category of crimes. The Arabic language differentiates between delinquency (“inhiraf”) which designates minor crimes and the crime (“jarima”) which applies to the most serious crimes and offenses.
