Evil in Modern Thought at Twenty Workshop
Evil in Modern Thought at Twenty Workshop @ Hageman Hall - New Brunswick Theological Seminary
Sep 30 – Oct 2 all-day
Susan Neiman develops in Evil in Modern Thought: An Alternative History of Philosophy (2002, Princeton: Princeton University Press) a watershed perspective on the longstanding problem of evil, the perniciously difficult to satisfy “need to find order within those appearances so unbearable that they threaten reason’s ability to go on.” The book thereby also presents a radically new perspective on traditional debates within metaphysics. On the occasion of its twentieth anniversary, we gather to celebrate her accomplishment and to advance[...]

The rise of right-wing populism transnationally and attacks on reproductive rights, for example, exacerbate the challenges feminists confront. At the same time, as external conditions shift, feminism’s own faultlines continue[...]

How AI Is Changing Artistic Creation @ Online
Oct 26 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Generative art made with algorithms has existed since the early days of computing in the 1960s. In recent years, a new strand of generative art has emerged: AI-generated art, which leverages the recent progress of artificial intelligence to create artworks. Unlike old-fashioned generative art, AI-generated art is not produced with an explicit set of programming instructions provided by human artists; instead, it involves training an algorithm on a dataset so that it can later produce[...]

Hobbes on Sex. Susanne Sreedhar (BU) @ Wolff Conference Room/D1103
Oct 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Even on a close reading of Hobbes’s corpus, it is difficult to extract a clear picture of his views on gender. In the history of philosophy, most of the ‘great’ philosophers engaged with questions about women’s ‘nature’ and the appropriate role for women in the family, society, and state. Hobbes, however, seems to have far less to say on the subject than most, and what he does say is often ambiguous or paradoxical. It is[...]

Support the calendar by leaving a tip, buying a t-shirt/ coffee mug/ sticker design as seen on the sidebar to the right, or buying me a beer if you are in NYC.

There are more talks, especially on specific topics, some of which I choose not to add and others that I’ve just missed.  See the links to philosophy groups and departments below.

N.B. Most information has been taken from webpages and is provided as is, with no guarantees as to its accuracy or the quality of the philosophy.

I take no credit for this great idea. See the Boston Area Philosophy Calendar and mailing list. If you have a correction, addition or question, or want to buy me beer, please send me an email at noah /at/ noahgreenstein \dot\ com. Tweet at the calendar @nycaphical.
