New Release: Franco Chiereghin, “Relire la ‘Science de la Logique’ de Hegel” (Hermann, 2020)

We are very glad to announce that the volume Rileggere la Scienza della logica di Hegel: ricorsività, retroazioni, ologrammi, by Franco Chiereghin, has been translated into French. The contribution, published in Italian in 2012 (Carocci), is now available in the French translation provided by Charles Alunni (Hermann, 2020).

From the publisher’s website:

L’ouvrage de Franco Chiereghin marque à la fois un tournant interprétatif décisif de la Science de la logique hégélienne et indique combien le rapprochement philosophie–science contemporaine est un défi fondamental pour le XXIe siècle. Le recours à la théorie contemporaine de la complexité permet à l’auteur de décoder et d’interpréter à nouveaux frais les opérations dialectiques essentielles du philosophe allemand. À travers un texte marqué à la fois par la fluidité, la clarté et la profondeur, le lecteur est amené à explorer les arcanes de l’entreprise hégélienne, qui sont enfin rendues lisibles par l’application à la Science de la logique des opérateurs centraux tirés des théories contemporaines des systèmes et de la complexité que sont la récursivité, les rétroactions et l’hologramme.

NEW RELEASE: Dominik Finkelde and Paul M. Livingston (eds.), “Idealism, Relativism, and Realism. New Essays on Objectivity Beyond the Analytic-Continental Divide” (De Gruyter, 2020)

We are pleased to give notice of the release of the volume Idealism, Relativism, and Realism. New Essays on Objectivity Beyond the Analytic-Continental Divide, edited by Dominik Finkelde and Paul M. Livingston (De Gruyter, 2020).

From the publisher’s website:

Several debates of the last years within the research field of contemporary realism – known under titles such as “New Realism,” “Continental Realism,” or “Speculative Materialism” – have shown that science is not systematically the ultimate measure of truth and reality. This does not mean that we should abandon the notions of truth or objectivity all together, as has been posited repeatedly within certain currents of twentieth century philosophy. However, within the research field of contemporary realism, the concept of objectivity itself has not been adequately refined. What is objective is supposed to be true outside a subject’s biases, interpretations and opinions, having truth conditions that are met by the way the world is. The volume combines articles of internationally outstanding authors who have published on either Idealism, Epistemic Relativism, or Realism and often locate themselves within one of these divergent schools of thought. As such, the volume focuses on these traditions with the aim of clarifying what the concept objectivity nowadays stands for within contemporary ontology and epistemology beyond the analytic-continental divide.

With articles from: Jocelyn Benoist, Ray Brassier, G. Anthony Bruno, Dominik Finkelde, Markus Gabriel, Deborah Goldgaber, Iain Hamilton Grant, Graham Harman, Johannes Hübner, Andrea Kern, Anton F. Koch, Martin Kusch, Paul M. Livingston, Paul Redding, Sebastian Rödl, Dieter Sturma.

NEW RELEASE: Manja Kisner and Jörg Noller (Eds.), “The Concept of Will in Classical German Philosophy. Between Ethics, Politics, and Metaphysics” (De Gruyter, 2020)

We are pleased to give notice of the release of the volume The Concept of Will in Classical German Philosophy. Between Ethics, Politics, and Metaphysics, edited by Manja Kisner and Jörg Noller (De Gruyter, 2020).

From the publisher’s website:

This volume collects thirteen original essays that address the concept of will in Classical German Philosophy from Kant to Schopenhauer. During this short, but prolific period, the concept of will underwent various transformations. While Kant identifies the will with pure practical reason, Fichte introduces, in the wake of Reinhold, an originally biological concept of drive into his ethical theory, thereby expanding on the Kantian notion of the will. Schelling, Hegel, and Schopenhauer take a step further and conceive the will either as a primal being (Schelling), as a socio-ontological entity (Hegel), or as a blindly striving, non-rational force (Schopenhauer). Thus, the history of the will is marked by a complex set of tensions between rational and non-rational aspects of practical volition. The book outlines these transformations from a historical and systematic point of view. It offers an overview of the most important theories of the will by the major figures of Classical German Philosophy, but also includes interpretations of conceptions developed by lesser-studied philosophers such as Maimon, Jacobi, Reinhold, and Bouterwek.

CFP: “Normativity and the Life Sciences: Analytical and Continental Perspectives” (History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences. 2021 Special Issue)

We are happy to announce a call for papers for the 2021 Special Issue of  History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences, which will focus on the following topic: Normativity and the Life Sciences: Analytical and Continental Perspectives.

Please find the text of the call below.

 Normativity and the Life Sciences

Analytical and Continental Perspectives

2021 Special Issue

History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences

Guest editors: Luca Corti, Ivan Moya-Diez, Matteo Vagelli

 

 

We are inviting submissions for a Special Issue of History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences. This special issue will be devoted to the topic of ‘Normativity and the Life Sciences: Analytical and Continental Perspective’. Below you can find the rationale of the Issue.

 

RATIONALE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE:

In recent years, normativity and the status of norms have been at the center of several key debates in both the Continental and analytical traditions.. The question of normativity encompasses contentious issues touching various areas, including philosophy of biology, philosophy of mind and cognition, as well as metaethics. The development of disciplines tied to evolution (such as evolutionary biology, evolutionary psychology, etc.) as well as to the organisation of living beings (such as system biology) has driven a new interest and led to the introduction of crucial new perspectives into the philosophical conversation on norms.
Within this framework, the relation between norms and the phenomenon of life has become central: various thinkers coming from different philosophical traditions have analysed the problem of normativity from the premise that norms originate within life or the living organism and are tied to functions, or located norms in an evolutionary framework. Arguments from the life sciences have powerfully entered the debate not only in philosophy of medicine but also in metaethics.
We intend this special issue to open space for dialogue between philosophers and historians of science with different methodological approaches to normativity and its relation to the life sciences. By putting Continental, historical, and analytical approaches to vital normativity in conversation, the special issue aims to provide a synoptic view that sheds new light on individual topics, such as the origins and status of normativity in life or the strategies for naturalising norms offered by the theoretical framework of the life sciences. This dialogue will mobilize the work of Canguilhem, and, through him, the approach fostered by historical epistemology. It will engage analogous questions emerging from a classical German context. Literature on classical German philosophy and the problem of living normativity is abundant and scholarship on Canguilhem biology and vitalism is growing steadily, but no relevant connection between them has yet been drawn. This special issue will bring these two strands together and connect them with contemporary Anglo-American debates on the naturalisation of norms.

 

Topics for submitted papers might include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Normativity and explanation in the life sciences

  • Forms and accounts of biological normativity

  • The notion of “function”: philosophical and historical perspectives

  • Norms and evolution

  • Historical reflection on normativity, life and cognition (in areas such as French Epistemology, Classical German Philosophy, etc.)

  • Vital normativity and the epistemology of the life sciences

  • Teleology and its normative import: philosophical and historical aspects

  • The relation between social and vital norms

 

Invited contributors:

Michael Ruse (Florida State University)

Dennis Walsh (Toronto)

Peter McLaughlin (Heidelberg)

Monica Greco (Goldsmith, University of London)

Maria Muhle (Munchen)

Silvia De Cesare (Université de Genève)

Submission instructions:

 

All submissions, as well as inquiries about submissions to the special  issue, should be sent by e-mail to the guest editors: hpls2021specialissue@gmail.com

Submissions must not be submitted to or be under review at other journals, books, etc.

Submissions should not be longer than 9000 words, they should be sent as .doc files and they should include an abstract of 150 to 250 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references.

CFP: Workshop on Teleology in Hegel’s Logic (Valencia, October 19-21, 2020)

We are glad to give notice that a call for papers for the Workshop on Teleology in Hegel’s Logic, to be hold in Valencia, October 19-21, 2020, is open until July 15, 2020.

Below you can find the text of the call.

***

Workshop on Teleology in Hegel’s Logic
University of Valencia (Spain), October 19-21, 2020*

Hegel’s philosophy is commonly regarded as a teleological system, in which a set of forms of consciousness and spiritual constellations (ethical, social, political, artistic, religious, philosophical) are depicted as having historically developed in order to fully disclose their inner truth. A key chapter of the argument of the Science of Logic, the core of Hegel’s system, right before its conclusive section on the ‘Idea’, is indeed devoted to teleology as such. However, the chapter on ‘Teleology’ in the Logic hardly supports the standard view of a progression of attitudes and forms of life driven by an attracting historical final cause. ‘Teleology’ rather vindicates Kant’s concept of inner purposiveness, which is the concept of a self-maintaining and self-producing system. In light of this fact and challenging the standard picture, new approaches to Hegel’s reception of this notion have recently inspired original work on Hegel and topics like life, mind, action, and history.

The purpose of the workshop is to further the understanding of the role of the chapter on ‘Teleology’ in Hegel’s Science of Logic. We will welcome contributions on issues like:

  • The relation of ‘Mechanism’ or ´Chemism´, or both, to ‘Teleology’.
  • Hegel’s discussion of Kant’s third antinomy of reason and/or his antinomy of judgement in ‘Teleology’.
  • The influence of Aristotle’s understanding of nature and life on the chapter ‘Teleology’ and those following it (‘Life’, ‘The idea of knowledge’, ‘The absolute idea’).
  • The argument in the different sections of ‘Teleology’ on the subjective purpose, the means, or the realised purpose.
  • Connections between the concepts of inner purposiveness, life and organism in the Logic or elsewhere in Hegel’s work.
  • The different versions of ‘Teleology’ in the Science of Logic and the three editions of the Encyclopaedia of Philosophical Sciences.
  • The role of the ‘Objectivity’ section in the Doctrine of the Concept of the Science of Logic.
  • Historical approaches to the contents of ‘Teleology’, including comparison of Hegel’s standpoint to those of other philosophers (such as Spinoza, Leibniz, Wolff, Jacobi, Fichte, or Schelling), or scientists (such as Blumenbach, Haller, Treviranus, Buffon, and others).
  • Purposiveness as the notional core of Hegel’s concept of idea.
  • Hegel’s account of purposiveness in light of contemporary theoretical approaches in the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of action, or the philosophy of biology.

New Realease: David Charlston, “Translation and Hegel’s Philosophy. A Transformative, Socio-narrative Approach to A.V.Miller’s Cold-War Retranslations” (Routledge, 2020)

We are pleased to give notice of the release of the volume Translation and Hegel’s Philosophy. A Transformative, Socio-narrative Approach to A.V. Miller’s Cold-War Retranslations by David Charlston (Routledge, 2020).

From the publisher’s website:

This volume engages with translations of philosophy as complex, socially structured narratives bound by emotional, political and philosophical connections, exploring these dynamics at work in A.V. Miller’s Hegel translations and retranslations published between 1969 and 1986. The book contextualises Miller’s lifelong commitment to Hegel and builds on this narrative to lay the foundations for its socio-narrative, Bourdieusian and feminist theoretical frameworks, applied to the texts and paratexts of Miller’s six retranslations. The volume’s plurifocal sociological approach both illuminates the role of translators and publishers of philosophy in the “great transformation” of political liberalism and subsequently seeks to transform understanding about the ethical responsibilities of translators of philosophy in communicating values of diversity and change in political thinking. In highlighting the value of sociologically-grounded analyses of translations of philosophical works, this book is key reading for students and scholars in translation studies, German studies, continental and feminist-informed philosophies.
