Talk by Gürol Irzık at Fatih University: From Paradigms to Taxonomic Lexicons – Thomas Kuhn’s Linguistic Turn

leave a comment »

It has been fifty years since Thomas Kuhn’s “Structure of Scientific Revolutions” was first published. On this occasion, the Philosophy Department of Fatih University and Fatih Felsefe Kulübü are happy to host a talk by

Gürol Irzık (Sabancı Üniversitesi)

From Paradigms to Taxonomic Lexicons: Thomas Kuhn’s Linguistic Turn

Date: Wed. 19 December 2012

Time: 2 pm – 3.30 pm

Room: M-226 (opposite library entrance)

The speaker will trace the evolution of Kuhn’s views about  science from *The Structure of Scientific Revolutions* to *The Road  Since Structure*. This evolution can be described in terms of the increasing tendency in Kuhn’s roughly post-1980 writings to emphasize the role played by taxonomic lexicons in particular and language  learning process in general in the characterization of scientific revolutions and incommensurability.

The claim will  be defended that Kuhn’s linguistic turn can be understood best against the background of a Whorfian  conception of language and certain neo-Kantian themes.

How to reach us:

By public transport: Metrobus direction Beylikdüzü/TÜYAP, get off one stop before terminus (Hadımköy), take the blue bus 418 or the yellow (sometimes green or red and white) HT18 towards Hadımköy (ca. 15 min. to Fatih Kampüsü).

Manuel Knoll’s Talk at Fatih University on John Rawls’s Theory of justice

leave a comment »

John Rawls's Theory of justice, A Critical Introduction - Prof. Dr. Manuel KNOLL

Prof. Manuel Knoll of Fatih Üniversitesi will give a seminar talk at Fatih University, hosted by Fatih Üniversitesi İdeal Gençlik Kulübü.

The title of Manuel’s talk is

John Rawls’ Theory of Justice – a critical introduction

Date: Tuesday, 27 November 2012

Time: 1-2 pm

Room: Evliya Çelebi Seminar Hall (M-229)

John Rawls’s Theory of Justice is a work of political philosophy and ethics. It was originally published in 1971 and revised in both 1975 (for the translated editions) and 1999. In A Theory of Justice, Rawls attempts to solve the problem of distributive justice (the just distribution of goods in a society) by utilising a variant of the familiar device of the social contract. The resultant theory is known as “Justice as Fairness”, from which Rawls derives his two principles of justice: the liberty principle and the difference principle

Prof. Dr. Manuel Knoll was born in Munich, Germany in 1964.
In 2000 he earned a PhD in Philosophy, Political Science and History from the University of Munich. Since 1998 he has been lecturing at the University of Munich and at the Munich School of Political Science.
In 2008 he achieved his habilitation and venia legendi in Political Theory and Philosophy. In 2011 he became a Professor of Philosophy at Fatih University, Istanbul.

How to reach us:

By public transport: Metrobus direction Beylikdüzü/TÜYAP, get off one stop before terminus (Hadımköy), take the blue bus 418 or the yellow (sometimes green or red and white) HT18 towards Hadımköy (ca. 15 min. to Fatih Kampüsü).

Talk at Koc: ‘Expressive bodies and imaging desire: Deleuze’s practical Spinozism’

leave a comment »

‘Expressive bodies and imaging desire: Deleuze’s practical Spinozism’

just seen this: Monday 5 Nov. 2012 Koç University

Social Sciences Seminars: Marjorie Gracieuse

Author: CSSH
Time: 14:00
Location: CAS 134

‘Expressive bodies and imaging desire: Deleuze’s practical Spinozism’

Marjorie Gracieuse

The ethical gesture common to Spinoza and Deleuze is not only that of classifying images and concepts according to what they make us feel, see, think and do, but also that of promoting a new understanding of imagination, conceived as psycho-physical power both capable of hindering and intensifying our life. If imagination first determines our servitude, rendering us dependent on impressions and external causes, it is also the necessary step towards a more intense and enlightened life, for it signals the body’s intrinsic power to reinvest the traces of its impressions and develop a new comprehension of its perceptive and cognitive processes. This paper explores the ambivalent status of images in Deleuze’s philosophy in light of Spinoza’s theory of images in order to understand in what sense, for Deleuze, the act of creation, whether it be philosophical, scientific or artistic, is always to be conceived as an imaging act of resistance to the present of established values or clichés. Indeed, the desiring production that emanates from the passionate bodies that we are does not cease to disrupt the rigid codes and lines that make us believe in the apparent necessity of this world’s organisation. Not only does creation bear a visionary value that escapes any historical determinations and judgements of expertise, but it also signals, through its multiple cultural expressions, an inalienable potential of inner liberation common to all living bodies.

Please join us for a lecture by Dr. Marjorie Gracieuse on November 5th, 2012. Dr. Gracieuse is a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Warwick, UK.

Conf. Health, Culture, and the Human Body 13-15 Sept 2012

Conf. Health, Culture, and the Human Body 13-15 Sept 2012

Demographic change in a globalized world raises not only social and economic issues but also ethical problems within the medical system of aging societies. Medical care for elderly people cannot be conceptualized and organized without considering a cultural understanding of aging and the economic and social circumstances of a given society. In this regard this conference will focus on ethical, historical and epidemiological perspectives of aging in a global world. Further subjects of the conference are the beginning of life and sexually transmitted diseases, which will also be discussed from an interdisciplinary perspective.
This conference will focus on selected cases from Turkey, Germany, and other countries closely connected by substantial migration processes, as they had been earlier through medical scientific exchanges and common clinical practice. After the well received first round held in Germany (Mainz) in 2010, the aim of the Istanbul conference is to establish a discussion platform for different ethical considerations among historically connected countries.

Clinical Ethics · Concepts, Problems and Challenges (Workshop Istanbul)

leave a comment »

On 17 September 2012, the second workshop will be held at the new Besikcizade Medical Humanities Center (Beşikçizade Tıp ve İnsani Bilimler Merkezi, BETİM), launched by hayatvakfı (http://www.hayatvakfi.org.tr/ ).

Image

Prof. Dr. Hans-Martin Sass (USA/Germany) will lead a one-day workshop on the topic ‘Clinical Ethics · Concepts, Problems and Challenges’ from 9.15am to 4pm.

Description of the Workshop:

In parallel with the scientific developments in modern medicine we observe an increase in the number of ethical problems arising in medical practice. Solving these problems has become a complex task. Especially in the last 20 years, clinical ethics has come to the fore as an academic discipline addressing these issues. In this workshop, world-renowned philosopher Hans Martin Sass will first outline the historical development of clinical ethics in the Western world and then discuss ethical decision making in clinical everyday life and its challenges. Subsequently, he will introduce the Bochum Working Paper, which he himself developed as a tool for solving medical ethical problems. Finally, his concept will be analyzed in its application to interesting and complex clinical cases.

Prof. Dr. Hans-Marin Sass is a Founding Member of the Zentrum für Medizinische Ethik (Center for Medical Ethics) at Ruhr University, Bochum, Germany, and Emeritus Senior Research Scholar at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA, as well as Honorary Professor at Peking Union Medical College in Beijing, China, and Academic Fellow at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies. He read philosophy and religious studies in Erlangen, Marburg and Münster, Germany. He earned his PhD 1962 at Münster University with a thesis on Hegel’s Philosophy of Religion. Having published widely on Hegel, Marx, and Heidegger, for the last 30 years Sass has focused on Political Philosophy and Applied Ethics.

Workshop languages are Turkish and English (with simultaneous translation provided).

Registration is required electronically by 7 September 2012, please, contact betim.bilgi@yandex.com, providing your name, institutional affiliation, mobile phone number, and e-mail address

Taking Pains: Plato on the Care of Self and Others

Mon. 10 Sept. 2012 12:00 noon

Hadımköy Campus, room A-306 (İbn-i Haldun Anfisi, previously known as Blue Hall)

Speaker’s abstract:

In this paper, I analyze the relationship between ethics and politics in Plato’s thought in order to demonstrate that Plato understood this relationship to be characterized by an ineradicable element of agonism and instability.  Drawing upon texts such as the Apology, Alcibiades I, Gorgias, and Symposium, as well as upon Foucault’s late works, I take the epimeleia heautou, “the care of the self,” as the organizing theme of my analysis, in order to show that this agonism has the aporetic result that, though Plato conceived of the ethics of the care both of oneself and others as the truest form of statesmanship, he was nevertheless unwilling or unable to generalize it into an unproblematic political system.

By public transport: Thankfully, the metrobus extension has been completed. Direction TÜYAP, get off one stop before terminus (misleadingly called Hadımköy), take the blue bus 418 or the yellow (sometimes green or red and white) HT18 towards Hadımköy (ca. 15 min. to Fatih Kampüsü)

By car: leave the TEM at Hadımköy gişeleri, turn right and follow the signs for Fatih Üniversitesi
