The round table will take place on 6 October 2018 at 10AM at the Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory (Kraljice Natalije 45, 4th floor). The ongoing education reform forsees gradual discontinuation of philosophy as a mandatory subject in secondary vocational schools, but also an introduction of new electives for philosophy teachers. With respect to this, the round table will examine the role that philosophy, and logic as a philosophical discipline, could and should have in the system of education.
Conference will gather some of the leading authors of analytical philosophy who are investigating current problems of social ontology and collective engagement through different theoretical lenses. The ontological account of engagement, commitment, rights and demands will be in the focus of theoretical discussion.
This book develops a unique phenomenology of plurality by introducing Hannah Arendt’s work into current debates taking place in the phenomenological tradition. Loidolt offers a systematic treatment of plurality that unites the fields of phenomenology, political theory, social ontology, and Arendt studies to offer new perspectives on key concepts such as intersubjectivity, selfhood, personhood, sociality, community, and conceptions of the "we."
We invite you to a seminar with Matthias Bormuth regarding The Socratic Adventure of Plurality – Hannah Arendt and the Challenge of the Philosophical Dialogue. Hannah Arendt wrote on Socrates and his idea of plurality during her American years. The early lecture at the University of Notre Dames and the late chapter from The Life of the Mind are connected by the challenge of leading a dialogue.
Matias Bormut is holding a lecture on ambivalence and engagement regarding the idea of plurality in the “disenchantment of the world” of Max Weber. Max Weber is well known as one of the founding fathers of modern sociology. His topos of the “disenchantment of the world” is well known as a diagnostic tool to understand the challenge of a pluralistic society with its personal and collective ambivalences. How can under these circumstances social engagement be possible?
Our neighborhoods are crammed with hidden stories. Some of them can be unlocked by talking to locals, allowing the threads of their narratives to plot alternative maps and discover shortcuts. Some other stories take us by surprise while we wander around smelling linden blossom, wonder what neighbors are cooking or turn in our bed sleeplessly, detesting the traffic noise and the heat of asphalt. Ethnographic research listens to each of these stories.
Mrđan Mlađan: The Importance of Solidarity for the Success of Economic Transitions in Post-Conflict Societies
This lecture explores the connection between economic justice and economic efficiency in post-conflict societies in transition. For this purpose, it compares Western Europe during the Marshall Plan and Eastern Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Although the aid to Eastern Europe during its recent transition was comparable to that distributed during the Marshall Plan, the lack of solidarity between different social groups likely contributed to slower economic growth in the decades following it, and even more so in post-conflict societies.
