Im Rah­men des Eras­mus-Dozen­te­naus­tauschs  kommt Dr. Michael Lacewing vom Heythrop Col­lege in Lon­don in der Woche vom 22.–26. April zu uns nach Tübin­gen.

Am 25. April, 18 Uhr c.t., wird er einen Vor­trag mit dem Titel “Why Moral Epis­te­mol­o­gy Must Be Virtue Epis­te­mol­o­gy” im Raum X der Burse hal­ten.

Zudem wird er in der angegebe­nen Woche ein Sem­i­nar zum The­ma “Psy­cho­analy­sis and its con­tri­bu­tion to phi­los­o­phy” hal­ten.

Beschrei­bung hierzu:

A cen­tral fun­da­men­tal philo­soph­i­cal ques­tion, at the heart of our project of under­stand­ing our­selves, con­cerns the nature of the human mind. Philo­soph­i­cal the­o­ris­ing is, quite right­ly there­fore, influ­enced by the­o­ries and claims in psy­chol­o­gy. The most notable exam­ple in recent times, of course, is that of cog­ni­tive psy­chol­o­gy, and more recent­ly, neu­ro­science. But the cen­tral claims of psy­cho­analy­sis have more typ­i­cal­ly been over­looked in the devel­op­ment of philo­soph­i­cal the­o­ries. This one-week sem­i­nar presents and defends the cogency of these claims before exam­in­ing their impli­ca­tions for four areas of phi­los­o­phy: the the­o­ry of emo­tion, the per­son­al/­sub-per­son­al dis­tinc­tion, the foun­da­tion of moral­i­ty in rea­son or love, and the nature of aes­thet­ic appre­ci­a­tion and cre­ativ­i­ty. In each case, it will be argued that psy­cho­analy­sis cor­rects and deep­ens our appre­ci­a­tion of the philo­soph­i­cal debate.
