Topic: Philosophy of Social Sciences: Second Interpretative Turn
SpeakerKoshy Tharakan (Department of philosophy, Goa University) 
Date: 11th December 2020 (Friday) Time: 4 PM IST, 10.30 AM BST, 5.30 AM EDT
Platform: Google Meet Meeting Link: http://meet.google.com/hqh-zwap-dhn

ABSTRACT: Regarding the methodology of social sciences, there are two distinct philosophical approaches, one, the ‘positivistic’ and the other ‘interpretative’. As Giddens has pointed out, the word ‘positivism’ has different connotations in different contexts. Generally speaking, in the context of the methodology of social sciences, Positivism amounts to the claim that the methodological procedures of natural sciences can be applied to social phenomena to form a science of society. As against this, the interpretative approach in its first response to positivism advocated ‘methodological dualism.’  According to it, the method of social sciences is fundamentally different from that of natural sciences and most of its exponents debunk the idea of forming a ‘science’ of society.

In this presentation, I propose to look at how interpretivism, in its second intervention attempted at a ‘methodological unity’ from the perspective of hermeneutics and the subsequent exchanges within the philosophy of social sciences. I conclude by drawing attention to the possibility of the ‘phenomenological-hermeneutic’ approach as offering promising prospects in the philosophy of social sciences.

Topic: I know, We know- Unifying Individual and Collective Knowledge 
Speaker: Boaz Miller (Senior Lecturer, Department of Executive Information Systems, Zefat Academic College)
Date: 4th December 2020 (Friday) Time: 3pm (India/GMT+5:30), 11.30am (Israel/GMT+2), 9.30 am (UK/GMT)
Platform: Google MeetMeeting Link: http://meet.google.com/twa-znfy-cci

For your reference, please find attached the poster and the abstract below.


ABSTRACT: I give a unified account of individual and collective scientific knowledge. I  address the question of what an individual subject’s standing needs to be of vis-à-vis her epistemic community for her to personally know. I argue that a subject knows when she responsibly does what is practicably possible to have a true ‎belief. ‎Additionally, the available evidence within the subject’s scientific ‎community must support her belief, given a ‎legitimate weighing of inductive risks. Last, the belief must be justified in light of the objective situation. My account gives a consistent unified explanation of Gettier cases and skeptical scenarios. It explains a common way scientists think of scientific knowledge, which the current philosophical analyses of knowledge fail to account for, and it draws attention to a neglected issue in the philosophy of science, which is true yet undersupported scientific claims.

Platform: Google Meet Meeting Link: https://meet.google.com/rpc-mzft-pea
ABSTRACT: Over the last two decades, various accounts of diachronic emergence have been developed as substitutes for, or supplements to, synchronic emergence. In this talk, I shall evaluate whether recent forms of diachronic emergence, variously dubbed `transformational emergence’, or `flat emergence’ are subject to a collapse argument that has proved to be problematic for synchronic accounts. I shall also develop an enhanced version of that argument and assess its effects.

The Academic Support Cell, Department of Philosophy is organizing a talk by Dr. Daniel Stoljar as part of a Series on Philosophical Methodology on 13th November 2020.  
Topic: Realism v Equilibrism about Philosophy 
Speaker: Prof Daniel Stoljar
Date: 13th November 2020 (Friday) Time: 1.30pm 
Platform: Google Meet Link: https://meet.google.com/piu-dypq-auo

ABSTRACT: According to the realist about philosophy, the goal of philosophy is to come to know the truth about philosophical questions; according to what Helen Beebee calls equilibrism, by contrast, the goal is rather to place one’s commitments in a coherent system. In this paper, I present a critique of equilibrism in the form Beebee defends it, paying particular attention to her suggestion that various meta-philosophical remarks made by David Lewis may be recruited to defend equilibrism. At the end of the paper, I point out that a realist about philosophy may also be a pluralist about philosophical culture, thus undermining one main motivation for equilibrism.

Friday, 30th October 2020, Joel Krueger and Tom Roberts from the University of Exeter are going to deliver an online seminar with our department.

Please find the details below.
Topic: Loneliness and the emotional experience of absence
Speakers: Joel Krueger (Senior Lecturer, University of Exeter) and Tom Roberts (Lecturer, University of Exeter)
Date: 30th October 2020 Time: 3.30 PM IST
Platform: Google Meet
Meeting Link: https://meet.google.com/wnx-ajjp-jzq

For your reference, please find attached the poster and paper as well as the abstract below.  

ABSTRACT: In this paper, we develop an analysis of the structure and content of loneliness. We argue that this is an emotion of absence—an affective state in which certain social goods are regarded as out of reach for the subject of experience. By surveying the range of social goods that appear to be missing from the lonely person’s perspective, we see what it is that can make this emotional condition so subjectively awful for those who undergo it, including the profound sense of being unable to realize oneself, in collaboration with others.
