5 GRANTS CALL -FCT INTERNATIONAL DOCTORAL PROGRAMME

FCT International Doctoral Programme

Philosophy of Science, Technology, Art and Society

University of Lisbon, Portugal

 
 

Call for applications of 2 national PhD scholarships and 3 mixed PhD scholarships open from 15th June to 7th September 2015
 
Please see here the Call for Application

 

The FCT International Doctoral Programme in Philosophy of Science, Technology, Art and Society is based on the widely recognized need to clarify the metaphysical horizons that support many of the current research programmes in natural sciences as well as in formal and human sciences. The Programme also aims to understand the impact of the scientific and technological culture in the contemporary world (ecological equilibriums, clinical practices, political experiences and aesthetical experimentation).
 
The Programme aims to develop an understanding of the nature, scope and limits of scientific knowledge in what it regards science’s most iconic results (material and ideal). Those facts of true knowledge are confronted with the major traditions of philosophy of science, from the more formalised models – explaining science through the analysis of its logical procedures – to the phenomenological methodologies – describing the forms of scientific conscience – including cognitive sciences. At the same time, thanks to the collaboration of experts from the areas of Law, Biomedicine, Sociology, Technology and Art, the Programme also aims to think those scientific dimensions which are not directly cognitive – for instance, those referring to the existence of scientific communities, or the forms of rationality present in contexts of procedural argumentation or clinical dialogue. Conversely, the Programme will explore the cognitive dimension of arts and technologies, where truth is materialized in artefacts and instruments.
 
The Programme is designed to train experts in Philosophy of Science, Technology, Art and Society who may contribute to the development of the various forms of scientific knowledge, both at a theoretical, and at a technical or artistic level, and also to the deepening of critical awareness of the consequences of modern science and technology over our condition of humans always  incomplete.

SEMINARIO UNED: XAVIER DE DONATO RODRÍGUEZ

Seminario del Dpto. de Lógica, Historia y Filosofía de la ciencia (UNED)

VIERNES 19 DE JUNIO, 12.00 (Sala de Grados de Filosofía, UNED)
 
Xavier de Donato Rodríguez (U. Santiago de Compostela)"Desacuerdo genuino"
 
Abstract:
 
A popular view among philosophers is that genuine disagreement is achieved whenever A and B express contradictory or directly inconsistent referential propositions or states of affairs. The view that this kind of disagreement (let us call it ‘referential disagreement’) is all there is to genuine disagreement constitutes a firm consensus in the philosophy of language and the theory of attitude reports. This talk aims to show that, albeit its initial plausibility and motivation, this view is wrong. Other candidates will be examined in the light of ordinary examples (intensional and comprehensive disagreement, which respectively involve contradictory intensions and understandings). If intensions are highly variable from subject to subject and maybe for subjects at different times, it remains mysterious how disagreement, and indeed communication, can ever get off the ground. Scientific controversies will be taken as a further case study. This will help to show the exact ways in which referential, intensional and comprehensive disagreement relate to one another.
