Diffidate di un filosofo che sa di sapere (Bobbio)

Scuole Estive 2016

Riportiamo una serie di scuole estive dedicate a varie tematiche che speriamo possano interessare i nostri lettori. Magari tra un tuffo al mare, un aperitivo in spiaggia e un viaggio dall’altra parte del mondo, qualcuno  sceglierà di trascorrere qualche giorno ascoltando degli esperti esporre e discutere di tematiche che attualmente rappresentano lo stato dell’arte nella ricerca scientifica di diverse discipline.

San Raffaele Spring School of Philosophy (SRSSP) 2016
Emotions, Normativity, and Social Life

Emotions play a major role in our lives for our inner and personal experience of the world, as well as for our relations to others, especially in all the value aspects of those experiences. Besides this role, philosophical and scientific debate has not reached a consensus both on what emotions are and on their specific contribution to our lives.Moreover, theories of emotions constitute a relevant attempt to bring empirical work to bear on philosophical theorizing, so providing the touchstone for interdisciplinary analysis.Some of the more interesting debates concerning emotions focus on their role in moral and political theory, on their relation to language and hate speech, on their role in intersubjectivity – both in typical development and in pathologies, and on our emotional self-understanding. Focus on each of these dimensions will provide a more detailed understanding of what emotions actually are and of how they guide our lives.

Within this framework, the Scientific Committee has selected papers contributing to one of the following sections:

 – Theories of Emotions

– Emotions, Morality and Political Theory

– Emotions, Language, and Hate Speech

– Emotions and Intersubjectivity – Typical Development and Pathologies
