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.
