Summer School in Ontology

Friday, April 8, 2016 - 9:36am
International School of Philosophy

Our school valorises the unavoidable pursuit of ontology, foregrounding the debate on this classical philosophical question. We do not intend to endorse one particular approach to ontology; on the contrary we have attempted to gather what we consider to be the most interesting philosophical perspectives of our time. The 2016 edition will offer a cutting edge, high-quality programme, thanks to the participation of some of the leading contemporary philosophers: Francesco Berto, Félix Duque, Adrian Jonhston, François Laruelle, Claude Romano, and Alenka Zupančič.

J. A. Hayden, University of Tampa

This panel looks at the representation of the scientific 'body' in the literature of the greater eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Some of the questions that might be posed here could include how this literary/historical period perceived, defined and/or categorized scientific constructions of the body? What role did gender play in this construction? How did the non-scientific community adapt or subvert scientific understanding about gender and the body?

Early Modern Science and the Grotesque [4/28/2016; Commission on Literature & Science, Austria Sept 7-9]

J. A. Hayden, University of Tampa

This panel probes the representation of the grotesque and science in early modern European discourse, whether in the travel narrative or other literary discourse, such as memoirs, letters, notes on experiments, or even the publications from various royal societies. The narrative may, in fact, be factual or fictional, published or in manuscript form. While the definition of the term "grotesque" and its context is relatively open, the grotesque must be clear and it must connect with early modern science and literary discourse in some immediate way. For this panel, I will consider early modern as dating from 1500 to 1700. Please forward by April 28, 2016 an abstract of 250 words and a vita to J. A.
