Oct 7 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Our situation is dangerous, there are uncertainties and elements of chaos in our environment, in international relations, in biotechnology, in sexual relations… But it is here that we should remember Mao’s old motto: “There is great disorder under heaven, so the situation is excellent!” Let’s not lose nerves, let’s exploit the confusion as a chance to propose a new radical vision. In January 2019, an international team of scientists proposed “a diet it says can improve health while ensuring[...]

Hollow Truth. Louis deRosset (University of Vermont) 3:30 pm
Hollow Truth. Louis deRosset (University of Vermont) @ NYU Philosophy Dept. rm 202
Oct 11 @ 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
A number of puzzles concerning how truth-ascriptions are grounded have recently been discovered by several theorists, following Fine (2010). Most previous commentators on these puzzles have taken them to shed light on the theory of ground. In this paper, I argue that they also shed light on the theory of truth. In particular, I argue that the notion of ground can be deployed to clearly articulate one strand of deflationary thinking about truth, according to[...]

Objectivity and the Humanities – Prospects for a New Realism. Markus Gabriel 6:00 pm
Objectivity and the Humanities – Prospects for a New Realism. Markus Gabriel @ Deutsches Haus at NYU
Oct 21 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Over the last decades, the humanities have come under pressure from the scientific worldview. To many, it seems as if the humanities provide us at best with less-than-objective knowledge claims. Arguably, there are at least two overall reasons for this. On the one hand, the scientific worldview tends to associate objectivity with the kind of knowledge-acquisition, explanation, and justification characteristic of the natural sciences. On the other hand, the humanities themselves have contributed to the[...]

Structural Rationality – Julian Nida-Rümelin (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München) 12:15 pm
Structural Rationality – Julian Nida-Rümelin (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München) @ NYU Philosophy Dept. 6th flr. lounge
Oct 29 @ 12:15 pm – 2:00 pm
In my talk, I will present my account of practical reason that is based on the idea of embedding an act into an intended (diachronic and/or interpersonal) structure of agency. It is compatible with bayesian decision and game theory, but refrains from consequentialist optimization. Its main scope is to integrate practical reasons of different kinds and reconcile ethical realism with bayesian decision theory.

Empirical and Normative Truth in Democracy – Julian Nida-Rümelin (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München) @ NYU Philosophy Dept. 6th flr. lounge
Oct 31 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
In public discourse, but also in political theory, the opinion prevails, that democracy is incompatible with aspirations of truth. Some assume, in the Hobbesian tradition, that civic peace requires that truth assertions be restricted to science and religion (normative positivism), whereas the political sphere is constituted by interests, bargaining and collective decisions based on interests, bargaining and rules of aggregation, be they implicit or explicit. In this perspective Collective Choice as preference aggregation is paradigmatic for the[...]
