Call for Papers for the III Colloquium in the History of Moral and Political Philosophy (University of Minho Braga, Portugal 1-2 February 2018)

Luglio 16th, 2017 by Emil Mazzoleni


The Political Theory Group of the University of Minho is pleased to announce the III Braga Colloquium in the History of Moral and Political Philosophy, an international annual conference to be held every year in January at the University of Minho in Braga, Portugal. The purpose of this conference series is to promote the study of the tradition of political and moral philosophy and its legacy in shaping our institutions, culture and beliefs. But it will focus on how this tradition can contribute to tackling the challenges our societies are facing today. Every year the conference will have a specific theme, which will be chosen by taking into consideration the current global political situation.
In line with the spirit behind this new series of conferences, the third edition of the Braga Colloquium in the History of Moral and Political Philosophy will be dedicated to explore the ideas of “radicalism” and “compromise”.

Politics has frequently been defined as the art of the possible or the art of compromise. More dramatically, it has been depicted as the realm of Faustian deals and tragic choices. Max Webber famously wrote that the political call demands endurance in the face of disappointment. It is the realm of frustration and sacrifices, of fragile equilibriums between fiat justitia and raison d’état.
Sometimes the existence of political structures of accountability relaxes the dependence on character, reputation, and honor among conflicting parties. Reasonable civic duties suffice to deflate social conflicts and to compensate offended actors. Lacking these institutions, integrity becomes non-negotiable for social trust.
On occasion, however, a social order of tolerance would not emerge without sacrificing the moral integrity of former heroes that we now consider dogmatic integrists. Conversely, this institutional order of tolerance also allows the political space for the reconstruction of identity claims for recognition that derive their radical strength from their intrinsic aversion to political settlement.
From a historical point of view, our political languages and attitudes towards compromise, negotiation, bargaining, and agreement have changed in a myriad of contexts and traditions. As so did our conceptions of what seemed once worth sacrificing or defending.

The aim of this Colloquium is to bring to the fore philosophical treatments from various philosophical traditions of these aspects of political activity, and to do so from an historical perspective that might help us shed light on the shape of things as they are now.

The Colloquium welcomes original explorations of political conflicts that illuminate these dimensions of conceptual change in radicalism and compromise from different traditions and perspectives.

“La realtà della realtà giuridica” (Pavia, 22 giugno 2017)

Giugno 14th, 2017 by Emil Mazzoleni


Il Collegio Golgi organizza per giovedì 22 giugno, alle ore 9,30 in Via Aselli 43, la terza edizione di “Nomologics”, seminario di ricerca sui problemi emergenti in filosofia del diritto e in epistemologia delle scienze sociali. L’incontro di quest’anno è dedicato al tema “La realtà della realtà giuridica” ed è patrocinato dal Dipartimento di Giurisprudenza dell’Università di Pavia, dal Dipartimento di Scienze giuridiche dell’Università Cattolica di Milano, dal Dipartimento di Scienze giuridiche “Cesare Beccaria” dell’Università degli Studi di Milano.
I partecipanti indagheranno le questioni fondamentali della ontologia giuridica (esiste una realtà giuridica distinta dalla realtà empirica? con quali modalità si costruiscono gli oggetti giuridici? quali sono i rapporti tra norme giuridiche e realtà empirica?) con particolare attenzione ai problemi della finzione, della proprietà, della decisione giudiziale, delle istituzioni politiche. Nel convegno verranno, inoltre, richiamate le teorie di alcuni autori che hanno contribuito a illuminare questi problemi, quali Benedetto Croce, Santi Romano, John Searle, Amedeo G. Conte.

Call for papers “Exemplars and exemplarism. Aretai Center 1st Annual Conference” (Genova, 05-06 Ottobre 2017)

Febbraio 1st, 2017 by Emil Mazzoleni


Moral exemplarity, as well as epistemic and aesthetic exemplarity, are cornerstones of philosophical reflection. Admiring and imitating the sage, or the saint, has for long been considered the standard path to wisdom and morality, and – in religious contexts - to salvation. Figures like Socrates and Jesus Christ, among many others, have been taken as sources of inspiration, as well as terms for comparison of one’s own conduct. After a quite long neglect, the philosophical community has recently seen a
resurgence of interest in such topic, highlighting both its theoretical and educational relevance. Such rehabilitation of exemplarity is mainly due to the work of Zagzebski, whose Exemplarist Moral Theory is now a landmark (e.g., Zagzebski, 2010, 2015, forthcoming 2017). The aim of the conference is to gather scholars working on exemplarity, discussing both the Exemplarist theory and the topic of exemplars broadly conceived, exploring their strengths, but also their weaknesses, as well as addressing potential and actual criticisms (among others, by Susan Wolf in her 1982 essay on Moral Saints).

Invited speakers:
Elisabetta Cattanei (University of Cagliari)
Piergiorgio Donatelli (Sapienza University, Rome)
Ian J. Kidd (University of Nottingham)
Linda T. Zagzebski (University of Oklahoma)

With the aim of including as many contributions as possible, the conference will be structured around plenary sessions and parallel sessions with the contributed papers selected by double blind review. The contributed papers should last 30 minutes (presentation + discussion). Abstracts of about 500 words (references included), prepared for blind refereeing, should be sent as email attachments to Possible contributions should refer to (at least) one of the three following
sections and address one or more of their key questions:

1) Exemplarity: its object and subject
- What is a moral exemplar? How many kinds of moral exemplars are there? Which are the necessary and/or sufficient conditions for being a moral exemplar?
- Can there be forms of non-moral (e.g., epistemic or aesthetic) exemplarity?
- Should we consider moral exemplars only those who are virtuous in all respects? Could someone who displays only one exceptional virtue be a moral exemplar?
- How do we recognize morally exceptional people? Can we rely on the emotion of admiration we feel towards them?
- Is the exemplars’ awareness of their exceptionality a necessary requirement for their moral exemplarity? Does the exemplar have some specific kind of moral responsibility toward those who admire her/him?

2) Moral Exemplarism in question
- What are the strengths and weaknesses of Zagzebski’s Exemplarist Moral Theory? Is its ground on admiration sufficient, or is a metaphysic foundation of exemplarity needed to support it?
- Does Zagzebski’s theory of emotions adequately account for the role played by admiration in identifying moral exemplarity?
- Which kinds of exemplars should an Exemplarist moral theory admit (e.g. heroes, saints, sages)?
- What distinguishes Zagzebski’s Exemplarist Moral Theory from other exemplarist accounts in Western and Eastern traditions What is their potential contribution to the current debate over moral exemplarism?

3) Exemplars and Education
- Which function do moral exemplars have in education? How do we attract the young’s interest toward exemplar characters?
- Can there be vicious, as well as virtuous, moral exemplars, the young might be attracted by? How can we account for such phenomenon, and counter it?
- Which kinds of narrative are better suited to describe an exemplar story?
- Does moral imagination play any relevant role in attracting one to the exemplars?
- What educational role can be played by literature, cinema, and the mass media, in pointing to different kinds of exemplarity?

Scientific Committee:
Angelo Campodonico (University of Genoa)
Terence Irwin (University of Oxford)
Michele Mangini (University of Bari)
Letterio Mauro (University of Genoa)
Claudia Navarini (European University, Rome)
Valeria Ottonelli (University of Genoa)

Iniziative Aretai - Center on Virtues (Università di Genova): seminari e reading group su “L’Esemplarità morale”

Gennaio 28th, 2017 by Emil Mazzoleni


Presso l’Università di Genova, a cura di Damiano Simoncelli e Maria Silvia Vaccarezza, coordinati da Angelo Campodonico, si terranno due iniziative di Aretai - Center on Virtues: la prima iniziativa è un reading group intitolato Esemplari morali ed esemplarismo contemporaneo; la seconda iniziativa è un ciclo di seminari intitolato L’esemplarità morale: teoria e storia. Entrambe le iniziative concernono una tematica che affonda le sue radici nella filosofia greca (Aristotele in particolare) e che è stata fortemente ripresa negli anni recenti nell’ambito della contemporanea Virtue ethics anglosassone: gli esemplari, cioè quei modelli di riferimento che suscitano in noi l’emozione dell’ammirazione e, spesso, il desiderio di imitarli. Qui e Qui si può scaricare il calendario degli incontri.
