Deductive Systems with Unified Multiple-Conclusion Rules. Alex Citkin 4:15 pm
Deductive Systems with Unified Multiple-Conclusion Rules. Alex Citkin @ CUNY Grad Center, 7395
Mar 2 @ 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm
Some people fight for the rights of animals, I am fighting for the rights of rejected propositions. Following the approach suggested by Brentano and accepted and developed by Lukasiewicz, I study the deductive systems that treat asserted and rejected propositions equally, in the same way. By “statement,” we understand the expressions of form +A – “A being asserted”, and -A$ – “A being rejected”, where A is a proposition. Accordingly, by a “unified logic,” we[...]

The Nature of Representation. David Papineau (King’s College London & CUNY) 6:30 pm
The Nature of Representation. David Papineau (King’s College London & CUNY) @ CUNY Grad Center, rm 5307
Mar 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Teleosemantics analyses representation in terms of evolutionary history. A standard objection is that swampman’s lack of evolutionary history doesn’t stop him representing. I have responded that teleosematics is an a posteriori thesis and so no more threatened by imaginary swampmen than water = H2O is threatened by XYZ. Peter Schulte has retorted that H2O may be the essence of water but evolutionary history isn’t the essence of representation. This talk will argue that, on a[...]

Overdoing Democracy: Robert B. Talisse in conversation with Oliver Burkeman 6:00 pm
Overdoing Democracy: Robert B. Talisse in conversation with Oliver Burkeman @ CUNY Grad Center, Segal Theater
Mar 5 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The fate of democracy is increasingly in doubt, in America and around the world. But what if the greatest danger for democratic societies comes from within? In his insightful new book, philosopher Robert B. Talisse reports that he has seen the enemy and it is us: we are overdoing democracy, making every issue a political issue and every human engagement a political interaction. If we hope to save democracy, Talisse argues, we need to put[...]

The tragic irony of life. Renaudie Pierre Jean @ Wolff Conference Room, D1103
Mar 5 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
According to a pervasive and widespread literature, we came, whether we want it or not, to surround our existences with all sorts of narratives: retrospective interpretations of what came before us and how we were born, anticipative stories about what is to come and what we should expect, and, most of all, restless attempts to describe what our present is made of so that we know how to make sense of it. First-person narratives occupy[...]

The Adoption Problem in Logic: Devitt’s Flawed Quinean Solution. Jillian Rose Roberts 2:00 pm
The Adoption Problem in Logic: Devitt’s Flawed Quinean Solution. Jillian Rose Roberts @ CUNY Grad Center, C201
Mar 24 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Can we adopt a new logic? If so, how? In unpublished talks, Saul Kripke has presented a certain message about this that Romina Padro has vigorously defended in What the Tortoise Said to Kripke—the Adoption Problem (2015). Padro contends certain basic logical principles cannot be adopted: “if a subject already infers in accordance with basic logical principles, no adoption is needed, and if the subject does not infer in accordance with them, no adoption is…possible.”[...]

Zōē, Politics, and Human Animality: Aristotle contra Agamben. Sara Brill 6:00 pm
Zōē, Politics, and Human Animality: Aristotle contra Agamben. Sara Brill @ Wolff Conference Room, D1103
Mar 26 @ 6:00 pm
A recent spate of critical engagements with Giorgio Agamben’s construction of the zōē, /bios distinction calls for renewed evaluation of the political valence of zōē in Aristotle’s political theory. While there may be ways of responding to these criticisms from within Agamben’s work, I am more interested in proposing an alternative account of zōē, one that better accommodates the breadth of Aristotle’s thinking about living beings, the context of ancient Greek conceptions of life, and[...]
