Announcement and Call for Papers Warsaw Workshop on Formal Truth Theories, September 28-30, 2017.

The Warsaw Workshop on Formal Truth Theories will be held at the University of Warsaw, Poland (Department of Logic, Institute of Philosophy) on September 28-30, 2017. General Information The notion of truth has been a long-standing centre of attention for logicians, philosophers and mathematicians. In particular, the logical properties of formal theories of truth have been revealed to be relevant to various philosophical questions, such as to discussions on deflationism, sources of semantic paradoxes, philosophical foundations of arithmetic, and many others. In view of this, numbers of aspects of axiomatic and semantic theories of truth have been extensively studied from various angles. The present Warsaw Workshop on Formal Truth Theories will contribute to the efforts having as their purpose a deeper understanding of the concept of truth. The aim of the meeting is to bring together researchers in logic, philosophy and mathematics addressing a wide range of truth-related topics in order to maintain common ground for new research, to discuss latest results and work in progress and to simply foster cooperation of researchers studying the notion of truth from different perspectives. The scope of the workshop topics includes, but is not limited to:
  • Model-theoretic versus axiomatic approaches to truth,
  • Syntactic and model-theoretic (non)conservativity of axiomatic truth theories,
  • The strength of reflection principles in axiomatic theories of truth,
  • Properties of satisfaction classes (in particular, weakly inductive satisfaction classes) in models of arithmetic,
  • Semantic paradoxes and their solutions,
  • Classical and non-classical logic in truth and satisfaction theories,
  • The relation between formal truth theories and the philosophical standpoints on truth (such as deflationism, correspondence theory, epistemic conceptions),
  • The role of the notion of truth – what philosophical and practical purposes it serves and how these purposes are achieved in various formal truth theories.
We are pleased to announce the following invited speakers:
  • Dora Achourioti (University of Amsterdam)
  • Ali Enayat (University of Gothenburg)
  • Kentaro Fujimoto (University of Bristol)
  • Volker Halbach (University of Oxford)
  • Graham Leigh (University of Gothenburg)
  • Albert Visser (Utrecht University)
Call for Papers: The workshop will include a session of contributed talks. Authors of contributed papers are requested to submit abstracts in pdf format of around 1000-1500 words by May 15th 2017, to the email address formaltruththeories@gmail.com. The abstracts should be prepared for blind-review; in particular, the author’s name, institutional affiliation and contact details should be specified separately in the email (not in the abstract). Authors of the accepted papers will have 30 minutes to present their work, including discussion. Important Dates: Submission deadline: May 15, 2017 Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2017 Workshop: September 28-30, 2017 Contact: formaltruththeories@gmail.com Conference website: http://formaltruththeories.pl/ Organizers: Cezary Cieśliński, Michał Godziszewski, Mateusz Łełyk, Bartosz Wcisło The workshop is a part of the project Formal truth theories financed by the National Science Centre, Poland (NCN), grant number 2014/13/B/HS1/02892.     Announcement and Call for Papers Formal Truth Theories 2017

Szanowni Państwo, poniżej przedstawiamy informacje na temat konferencji Being a Human Being, Being a Personwspółorganizowanej przez Instytut Filozofii UW (Mikołaj Sławkowski-Rode) w Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, United Kingdom: http://philevents.org/event/show/9769 http://philevents.org/event/show/9830

Conference description Being a Human Booklet

Conference “Humane Philosophy and the Arts”

The conference is co-organized by: Institute of Philosophy, Warsaw University Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion, University of Oxford

It will take place on the 19th of July 2014 and will be hosted by Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford.

This call for papers is directed to graduate students and researchers in philosophy and aims for submissions connected to, or developing the conference theme. Philosophy’s relationship to the arts has been volatile. There have been periods when it has been widely understood that there is an intimate connection between philosophical and artistic endeavour. This was the case as recently as the nineteenth century. Benjamin Jowett in his introduction to Plato’s Republic warns his reader of Plato’s surprising hostility to poetry. He expresses confidence that to the contemporary reader, the idea of an ideological tension between poetry and philosophy will seem foreign. Less than a century later however T S Elliot, on declaring his retirement from philosophy in order to dedicate himself fully to the arts felt warranted to comment that the two had always been uneasy bedfellows. Today the rift between philosophy and the arts is especially severe in the Anglophonic world, where it is taken for granted that philosophical enquiry must take as its model the physical sciences. At the other end of the spectrum on the Heideggerian perspective, philosophy, in order to fulfil its ultimate task, should turn into mytho-poetical prophecy. These positions manifest two extremes, – on the former the artistic imagination should be excluded from the area of philosophical interest entirely; on the latter the arts and philosophy would arguably be indistinguishable ironically also denying each its specific epistemological value. Between the two a whole range of views may be available. The aim of the conference is to re-examine the philosophical import of the arts and the relationship between philosophical enquiry and artistic endeavour. However, rather than attempting to develop another philosophical theory of art, or an aesthetic taxonomy of its artefacts the intention is to investigate whether and where the two can meet each other, and to what extent those encounters can lead to mutual enrichment. Equally though this does not necessarily mean an attempt at ‘decoding’ philosophical claims conveyed in artistic form. Indeed whether it is possible to convey what is achieved by a work of in any other medium, philosophical content included, is by no means certain. Topics authors wish to focus on may include but are not limited to: – What is the relationship between philosophy and the arts? – Art as the medium of human self-understanding – Art and the re-enchantment of the world – Art as the medium of metaphysics – The social and moral functions of the arts – Imagination in art and philosophy (status and function) – Why do humans produce and appreciate art? – Can philosophy be carried out in art? – What could be meant by ‘Aesthetic understanding’? – Can the philosophical import of an artwork be put into words? – Why should Robert Nozick think that gesturing at a Rothko painting might be an appropriate response to the question ‚Why is there something rather than nothing?’ We invite abstracts of up to 500 words, to be sent in MS Word or Pdf format to: m.slawkowski-rode@uw.edu.pl Abstracts should be received by May 31st 2014 and acceptance notifications will be sent out by June 28st. The subject line of the email should be „Paper submission”. The cover page should include your name, your institutional affiliation, the title of the paper, and your email address. There are six to nine places available for presentations. Selected papers will have a 20 minute presentation followed by a 10 minute question time. A post conference publication containing selected short papers is being considered. Organizing Committee: Mikołaj Sławkowski – Rode (Institute of Philosophy, Warsaw University) Przemysław Bursztyka (Institute of Philosophy, Warsaw University) Ralph Weir (Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford) This conference is organised by the Humane Philosophy Project.

WARSAW SUMMER HEGEL AND MARX SCHOOL 2013 The First Workshops Hegel’s Dialectic and the Method of ››Das Kapital‹‹ 22-26 September 2013, University of Warsaw

Organizers/Partners: • University of Warsaw: • Faculty of Philosophy and Sociology • The Hegel and Marx Society of Poland • Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung  

Workshops’ Topic

  The reception of Marx`s (and also Hegel’s) philosophy in Poland and other post-communist countries has long been burdened with an anathema of a political and historical nature. However, internationally, the contemporary social sciences see Marx as a crucial reference, one of the founding fathers of those disciplines. It is therefore high time to bring the reflection on Marx and Hegel and, more importantly, thinking along the lines of Marx and Hegel back to this part of Europe. It is particularly urgent as policy makers, as well as the public opinion, remain theoretically and practically disarmed in the face of the world’s structural crisis. The rationale for the workshops is not in the history of ideas or philosophy. Instead, Hegel and Marx are the key to conceptualising the core of actual reality. They pioneered in the critical, theoretical and multidisciplinary investigation of capitalism. The idea of the annual Warsaw Summer Hegel and Marx School, then, is to analyse Hegel’s and Marx`s concepts as they were developed, for the purpose of normative-critical understanding of modernity, the social being and capitalism. The first workshops are of a methodological character. We seek to reconstruct their respective social-political philosophies, hoping to uncover their heuristic potential – a reconstruction which welcomes the conceptualisation of breaks, leaps, discontinuities, tensions and contradictions present in their work. In times of worldwide economic crisis we ask about the ontological status of capitalism. That’s why we call for re-thinking and re-creating the dialectical – based on the idea that contradictions create the core of reality – methodology of synthetic, philosophical theories of capitalism in order to confront it with the “thing itself”.  

Organisational Matters

  The workshops will be held in Kuklówka (www.oswkuklowka.pl), a lovely little place outside Warszawa, between the 21st (arrival) and 27th (departure) of September.   I. For each of four workshop’s days, one of the tutors chooses a problem or a topic. They prepare an introductory speech and readings (the participants should get the list of texts a month before the workshops start), much like a seminar in which the other tutors take part as well. This takes up the first part of a day (circa 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.). The second part (4 p.m. – 8 p.m.) will be an afternoon seminar – prepared by another tutor – somehow related to the morning session. The third part (after 9 p.m.) is for individual consultations with tutors to choose sub-topics for articles (there is an option for the participants to write an article in cooperation with a tutor, selected articles will be published as part of a book). The evening creates also a possibility of viewing experimental movies and multimedia presentations (prepared among others by doctoral students of Universität der Künste Berlin). Every day new teachers start the cycle. The fifth, last day of the workshops is divided into two parts. The morning session (10 a.m. – 2 p.m.) gives an opportunity for participants to present their papers which could be a point of departure for articles in the projected book (the coordinators should be informed a couple of weeks before the workshops about the planned presentation of a paper). The afternoon session (4 p.m. – 8 p.m.) will conclude the previous days’ consultations.   II. Recruitment: CV, motivation letter and proficiency in English (passive and active skills) will be taken into account. The deadline for applications is 15 July. 30 participants will be accepted (students/doctoral students/postdocs/recognized researchers) from Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Poland. Travel and accommodation expenses are covered (we can buy airline/train tickets or, if preferred, we can reimburse you – for details please contact us first). Students/PhD students can earn 3 ECTS points.   III. The tutors are Christopher Arthur (Sussex, UK), Riccardo Bellofiore (Bergamo, Italy), Agata Bielik-Robson (Warszawa, Poland; Nottingham, UK), Pirmin Stekeler-Weithofer (Leipzig, Germany), Massimiliano Tomba (Padova, Italy), Monika Bobako (Poznań, Poland), Michał Kozłowski (Warszawa, Poland), Janusz Ostrowski (Warszawa, Poland).   IV. The topics are: 1. Christopher ArthurSystematic Dialectic2. Riccardo BellofioreLost in translation? The Marx-Hegel connection in ››Das Kapital‹‹, volume I, chapters 1-53. Agata Bielik-RobsonMarx and the Saving Critique of Religion4. Pirmin Stekeler-WeithoferMaking forms of collective action explicit. Hegel, Marx, and the logic of a social science5. Massimiliano TombaHegel-Marx disconnections; the lesson will be organised in two parts – 1) Marx’s Randglossen zu Adolph Wagners, in these notes Marx explains that his analysis does not set out either from the concept of value or from the concept of commodity, but from the commodity in its concreteness [Konkretum der Ware]; 2) consideration of the relationship between the worker and the employer in Hegel’s Philosophy of right (par. 67) on one side and in Marx’s criticism of Hegel (MECW, vol. 36, p. 178) on the other side; 6. Monika BobakoReligion and Secularization7. Michał KozłowskiAgency of the dominated in Hegel and Marx8. Janusz OstrowskiMarx between Schelling and Hegel: from the critique of ideology to the critique of political economy.   Submissions may be sent by email or regular post to: Janusz Ostrowski Ph. D.

More generally I want to ask whether the conception of time not as a background but as an active component of the physical universe has any significant consequences for metaphysics. Jan Hauska INVINCIBLE DISPOSITIONS A number of arguments have recently been offered in support of the thesis that dispositional properties at the fundamental level are not susceptible to finks. I comment on one of them (ZNature’s Metaphysics, pp. 60-2), suggest another one, and contend that some fundamental dispositions are immune not only to finks but also to masks. Stathis Psillos MECHANISM SANS METAPHYSICS There have been two broad conceptions of causation. The first conception of causation, which may be called dependence or successionist, takes it that causation is a relation between two externally related events and is such that the cause is robustly related to the effect. The second conception, which may be called productive or generative, takes it that causation is a relation between two internally connected events and is such that the cause produces or generates the effect. There are several ways to unpack the idea of causation as a productive or generative relation, but the most prominent one (and, ultimately, the common factor in all ways) is that cause and effect are related by a mechanism, which is such that on being stimulated by the cause, it generates the effect. In this paper, I will examine several varieties of the mechanistic approach to causation in light of three plausible desiderata: Plausibility (a plausible account should be given of how the cause produces the effect) Generality (the causal connection should be generalisable: it should obtain in all kinds of domain) Autonomy (higher-level causation should have some kind of autonomy; it should not be parasitic on causation at the physical level) It will be argued that none of the traditional mechanistic approaches to causation satisfies jointly all three desiderata. Then, attention will be given to recent dualistic conceptions of mechanisms, advanced by Machamer, Darden and Craver, as well as to monistic conceptions, advocated by Glennan. It will be claimed that they too fail to satisfy the foregoing desiderata and that they generate different but important metaphysical commitments—the MDC approach to brute powers and the Glenna approach to non-mechanical laws. These problems will be alleviated if we leave the metaphysics of mechanisms behind and think of mechanisms purely in methodological terms. Markus Schrenk “RESISTING METAPHYSICAL NECESSITY” Our intuition that there is a de re connection in nature has one source in the felt resistance of the world against our wilful actions: I can’t lift this heavy weight, run 10k in under 40min, walk through this wall, etc. Under Hume’s spell, who has denied that this intuition is veridical, even anti-Humeans have neglect this source and they focus entirely on a route against Hume that leads via Kripkean considerations. As a consequence, the link in nature that is widely accepted amongst anti-Humeans — metaphysical necessity — shares features of semantic, logical, apriori, analytic necessity. In this paper I indicate that, because of these mentioned features, the Kripkean route is a doubtful way to the wanted de re connection in nature and that the first mentioned path — via the felt resistance of the world against our wilful actions — is more promising after all. Emma Tobin ON THE IDENTITY OF DISPOSITIONAL AND CATEGORICAL PROPERTIES Strawson (2008) argues that there is no real distinction between an object’s categorical properties and its dispositional or power properties. He argues for this on the basis that if there were a real distinction between them, then they would have to be separable, and thus, must be capable of existing without each other. If the two properties are inseparable then they are numerically identical. Thus, there is no real distinction between the two. Pace Strawson, Oderberg (2009) argues that essence rather than identity grounds inseparability. This paper addresses other arguments for the non-identity of dispositional and categorical arguments. CAUSAL COMPLETENESS AND COMPLETABILITY IN CLASSICAL PROBABILITY SPACES Leszek Wroński In my talk I would like to present some results concerning the notions of „causal completeness” and „causal completability”. A probability space is causally complete if any correlation between logically independent events in it possesses an explanation by means of a common cause (in the Reichenbachian sense). The notion of causal completeness may be extended so that an explanation by other means is accepted. The first result (due to Marczyk and Wroński 2009) states that a finite probability space has a uniform probability measure iff every correlation between logically independent events in it possesses a Reichenbachian common cause or a so called Reichenbachian common cause system of size 3. The second result is that every probability space may be extended (with the measure being preserved) to a causally complete space. I also present some problems regarding extension of these results to non-classical probability spaces. UNGROUNDED DISPOSITIONS IN QUANTUM MECHANICS Tomasz Bigaj General metaphysical arguments have been proposed in favour of the thesis that all dispositions have categorical bases (Armstrong; Prior, Pargetter, Jackson). These arguments have been countered by equally general arguments in support of ungrounded dispositions (Molnar, Mumford). I believe that this controversy cannot be settled purely on the level of abstract metaphysical considerations. Instead, I propose to look for ungrounded dispositions in specific physical theories, such as quantum mechanics. I explain why non-classical properties such as spin are best interpreted as irreducible dispositional properties, and I give reasons why even seemingly classical properties, for instance position or momentum, should receive a similar treatment when interpreted in the quantum realm. Contrary to the conventional wisdom, I argue that quantum dispositions should not be limited to probabilistic dispositions (propensities), and I show reasons why even possessing well-defined values of parameters (being in an eigenstate) should qualify as dispositional properties, not categorical ones. I also discuss the issue of the actuality of quantum dispositions, arguing that it may be justified to treat them as mere potentialities whose being has a lesser degree of reality than that of classical categorical properties, due to the incompatibility relations between non-commuting observables.
