Civic Associations and the Democracy 7:30 pm
Civic Associations and the Democracy @ Setauket Neighborhood House
Mar 1 @ 7:30 pm
Alexis de Tocqueville believed that political freedom is difficult to achieve, and long term modern states risk losing their democracy without an engaged citizenry. Tocqueville first visited America in 1831 and one of the particulars he found most promising in the new “upstart” was the value Civic Associations play in organizing and promoting the needs of the citizen. This week we will cast our lens directly on role of Community, not only defining what role Community Organisations play in today’s society, but ask critical questions about the future of Community through the venue of Social Media, for example. This should be of particular interest to you my fellow citizen. Please …

Implicit Moral Attitudes: Lessons from Psychology for Philosophy and Law 4:00 pm
Implicit Moral Attitudes: Lessons from Psychology for Philosophy and Law @ NYU Philosophy Dept. rm 202
Mar 3 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
This talk describes and criticizes traditional approaches to moral psychology, which try to understand moral judgments through questionnaires. Walter Sinnott-Armstrong argues that it is more accurate and illuminating to use tests of implicit attitudes modeled on tests of implicit racial attitudes. Sinnott-Armstrong explains one such test that we have used with great success in predicting not only personality variables but also behavior (charity donations and voting). Finally, he draws out potential lessons for traditional issues in moral philosophy and legal responsibility. Walter Sinnott–Armstrong is Chauncey Stillman Professor of Practical Ethics at Duke University in the Philosophy Department, the Kenan Institute for Ethics, the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, and the Law School. …

Mar 4 all-day
We are pleased to announce the second symposium at Columbia University, Saturday, March 4, 2017, Keynote Speakers: Dr. John Morrison, Department of Philosophy at Columbia University/Barnard College Professor Morrison is currently working on three projects.   The first is about how we manage to perceive secondary qualities, such as redness. He argues that we perceive them in virtue of perceiving the differences and similarities between objects, thereby reversing the traditional order of explanation.  He then develops similar explanations of how we perceive objects, kinds, and many primary qualities.  The second is about uncertainty and perception. He argues that our perceptual experiences sometimes assign degrees of confidence. Both of these projects draw heavily on …

Essence, Explanation, and Modal Knowledge – Antonella Mallozzi @ CUNY Grad Center, rm 7113
Mar 15 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
I develop Kripke’s model of knowledge of a posteriori necessities and propose that knowledge of metaphysical necessity depends on knowledge of essential properties. In my account, essential properties are characterized in terms of their causal roles for determining other properties and behaviors. As a consequence, essential properties have a distinctive explanatory power. I present this account and show how it fits nicely Kripke’s examples of a posteriori necessities as well as other cases. I further suggest that a kind of necessitarianism about the laws of nature follows, and that this is implicit in Naming and Necessity.

Agenda Setting and the Media 7:30 pm
Agenda Setting and the Media @ Setauket Neighborhood House
Mar 15 @ 7:30 pm
This week we focus our lens on the Media by exploring Agenda Setting. Agenda setting is when a certain media outlet frequently presents an issue that may not be as relevant as the frequent appearance of the piece suggests. However, as a result of the frequency the audience begins to think the issue is important. The concern is compounded when other media outlets jump on the band wagon. We’ll explore this little touched topic and more! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts! Please read Agenda Setting pages 147 – 161 Please remember to bring $3 for the Setauket Neighborhood house.

Title: An Indeterminate Universe of Sets Speaker: Chris Scambler, NYU Abstract: The questions “Is there one and only one universe of sets?” and “Does every set-theoretic proposition have a determinate truth-value?” are often taken to be intimately related; there is, for example, a widespread tendency to assume that answering the former affirmatively commits one to the same with respect the latter. I’ll argue that this tendency is mistaken. I present a view on which there is a unique but indeterminate universe of sets, couched in a non-classical (semi-intuitionistic) logic, drawing on the work of Solomon Feferman. =========== Happy New Year!

An Epistemic Generalization of Rationalizability – Rohit Parikh 4:10 pm
An Epistemic Generalization of Rationalizability – Rohit Parikh @ Faculty House, Columbia U
Mar 24 @ 4:10 pm
Rationalizability, originally proposed by Bernheim and Pearce, generalizes the notion of Nash equilibrium. Nash equilibrium requires common knowledge of strategies. Rationalizability only requires common knowledge of rationality. However, their original notion assumes that the payoffs are common knowledge. I.e. agents do know what world they are in, but may be ignorant of what other agents are playing. We generalize the original notion of rationalizability to consider situations where agents do not know what world they are in, or where some know but others do not know. Agents who know something about the world can take advantage of their superior knowledge. It may also happen that both Ann and Bob know …

The Value of Privacy Beyond Autonomy – Tobias Matzner 6:00 pm
The Value of Privacy Beyond Autonomy – Tobias Matzner @ Wolff Conference Room, D1103, Albert and Vera List Academic Center
Mar 30 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Abstract || Traditionally privacy is valued for protecting individual freedom and autonomy. Such concepts of privacy and the underlying idea of autonomy have drawn criticism from various quarters. Feminist thinkers and critical theorists have advanced such criticism on normative grounds. In the recent years, they have been joined by arguments on a pragmatic level, which show that such concepts of privacy no longer can orient life in a world permeated with new threats to privacy, in particular due to the development of information technology. In consequence, many theories have reconstructed concepts privacy in light of this criticism, often by invoking more relational concepts of autonomy.  The talk proposes a different approach. Using …

Crafting Ancient Identities: Mythological and Philosophical Approaches to the Self and Society in Antiquity
Crafting Ancient Identities: Mythological and Philosophical Approaches to the Self and Society in Antiquity @ Skylight Rm CUNY
Mar 31 all-day
Crafting Ancient Identities: Mythological and Philosophical Approaches to the Self and Society in Antiquity Tenth Annual Graduate Conference in Classics Friday, March 31, 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York Keynote Speaker: Professor Kathryn Morgan, UCLA In Greek and Roman antiquity, mythology and philosophy helped individuals understand their world and define their place in society.

Philosophy, meanwhile, reflects an effort to systematize knowledge and answer questions about our place in the world. Both mythological narratives and philosophic thought participated in the crafting of ancient identities, whether as individuals, …

Social Value in Non-Social Philosophy: 20th Annual CUNY Graduate Conference
Social Value in Non-Social Philosophy: 20th Annual CUNY Graduate Conference @ CUNY Grad Center
Mar 31 – Apr 1 all-day
Analytic philosophy is often derided as overly esoteric, focused on matters of little consequence in day-to-day life. This is particularly directed at non-value theoretic areas: Metaphysics, Epistemology, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Mathematics, and Logic. Does any greater good result from our countless hours spent in armchairs? This conference aims to explore the value of non-value theoretic areas of philosophy. Questions to address include, but are not limited to: What value does [any area of] non-value theoretic philosophy have, if any? What is it for work to have value? Can we use non-value theoretic philosophy to effect political change, and if so, how? How do …
