Abstract

Visual representations (photographs, diagrams, etc.) play crucial roles in scientific processes. They help, for example, to communicate research results and hypotheses to scientific peers as well as to the lay audience. In genuine research activities they are used as evidence or as surrogates for research objects which are otherwise cognitively inaccessible. Despite their important functional roles in scientific practices, philosophers of science have more or less neglected visual representations in their analyses of epistemic methods and tools of reasoning in science. This book is meant to fill this gap. It presents a detailed investigation into central conceptual issues and into the epistemology of visual representations in science.

Abstract

L’archéologie est communément distinguée des autres sciences humaines, en particulier des sciences du passé, par son objet d’étude qui est, par essence, l’homme à travers les vestiges matériels, de l’objet jusqu’au site archéologique et son environnement. Mais alors que ces restes tangibles des sociétés passées sont descriptibles, caractérisables, classables dans des typologies, comment aborder et interpréter les vides et les silences documentaires qui n’ont pas laissé de traces manifestes ? La problématique de l’absence est commune à toutes les approches archéologiques et à toutes les aires chronoculturelles. Dans les articles de ce volume, issus de communications présentées lors de la 12e Journée Doctorale d’archéologie de l’université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (ED 112), les doctorants tentent, à travers des indices indirects, de définir, de mesurer, d’expliquer ces vides et ces silences, voire de les combler. Face à la nature incomplète ou biaisée des sources archéologiques, des solutions méthodologiques sont proposées et appliquées à des problématiques et à des contextes variés, à la faveur d’approches croisées, multidimensionnelles et multiscalaires.

Abstract

This open access book – as the title suggests – explores some of the historical roots and epistemological ramifications of perspectivism. Perspectivism has recently emerged in philosophy of science as an interesting new position in the debate between scientific realism and anti-realism. But there is a lot more to perspectivism than discussions in philosophy of science so far have suggested. Perspectivism is a much broader view that emphasizes how our knowledge (in particular our scientific knowledge of nature) is situated; it is always from a human vantage point (as opposed to some Nagelian "view from nowhere"). This edited collection brings together a diverse team of established and early career scholars across a variety of fields (from the history of philosophy to epistemology and philosophy of science). The resulting nine essays trace some of the seminal ideas of perspectivism back to Kant, Nietzsche, the American Pragmatists, and Putnam, while the second part of the book tackles issues concerning the relation between perspectivism, relativism, and standpoint theories, and the implications of perspectivism for epistemological debates about veritism, epistemic normativity and the foundations of human knowledge.

Abstract

This monograph discusses the importance of A. L. Hülsen's only book for the history of early German idealism. The Wissenschaftslehre is Fichte's ""response"" to the objections of Schulze-Aenesidemus to Reinhold's early Elementarphilosophie. Hülsen, a Fichtean thinker, restructured many aspects of Reinhold's system which Fichte left intact. In 1797, Fichte recognized Hülsen as a partner in the development of his system, thus acknowledging his contribution to the emergence of German idealism.

Abstract

Taste usually occupies the bottom of the sensorial hierarchy, as the quintessentially hedonistic sense, too close to the animal, the elemental and the corporeal, and for this reason disciplined and moralised. At the same time, taste is indissolubly tied to knowledge. To taste is to discriminate, emit judgement, enter an unstable domain of synaesthetic normativity where the certainty of metaphysical categories begins to crumble. This second title in the ‘Law and the Senses’ series explores law using taste as a conceptual and ontological category able to unsettle legal certainties, and a promising tool whereby to investigate the materiality of law’s relation to the world. For what else is law’s reduction of the world into legal categories, if not law’s ingesting the world by tasting it, and emitting moral and legal judgements accordingly? Through various topics including coffee, wine, craft cider and Japanese knotweed, this volume explores the normativities that shape the way taste is felt and categorised, within and beyond subjective, phenomenological and human dimensions. The result is an original interdisciplinary volume – complete with seven speculative ‘recipes’ – dedicated to a rarely explored intersection, with contributions from artists, legal academics, philosophers, anthropologists and sociologists.&#xD;

Abstract

Knowledge, Spirit, Law is a de facto phenomenology of scholarship in the age of neoliberal capitalism. The eleven essays (plus Appendices) in Book 1: Radical Scholarship cover topics and circle themes related to the problems and crises specific to neoliberal academia, while proposing creative paths around the various obstructions. The obstructions include metrics-obsessed academia, circular and incestuous peer review, digitalization of research as stalking horse for text- and data-mining, and violation by global corporate fiat of Intellectual Property and the Moral Rights of Authors. These issues, while addressed obliquely in the main text, definitively inform the various proscriptive aspects of the essays and, via the Introduction and Appendices, underscore the necessity of developing new-old means to no obvious end in the production of knowledge — that is to say, a return to forms of non-instrumentalized intellectual inquiry. To be developed in two concurrent volumes, Knowledge, Spirit, Law will serve as a “moving and/or shifting anthology” of new forms of expression in humanistic studies. Book 2: The Anti-Capitalist Sublime will be published in Autumn 2017.

Abstract

En 1986, paraissait l’ouvrage séminal d’Alain Gallay L’archéologie demain. À l’occasion du trentième anniversaire de ce livre, il convient de s’interroger : l’archéologie de demain est-elle devenue celle d’aujourd’hui ? Science en constante évolution depuis ses origines, à l’interface de multiples disciplines avec lesquelles elle partage les outils et les méthodes, l’archéologie contemporaine est une discipline protéiforme. De la fouille au laboratoire, de l’analyse des vestiges à celle des sociétés, les bases méthodologiques sur lesquelles elle repose font désormais appel aussi bien aux sciences humaines qu’aux sciences dites « dures ». La recherche archéologique est aujourd’hui de plus en plus souvent complétée par d’autres approches permettant de produire de nouvelles données, de poser un regard différent sur les données préexistantes ou d’en approfondir l’étude à travers de nouvelles problématiques. Le volume présente les actes de la 11e journée doctorale d’archéologie de l’ED 112. Les articles réunis offrent une réflexion épistémologique sur la discipline archéologique dans son ensemble à travers 3 axes principaux : – Les problématiques, les enjeux et les limites de l’archéologie contemporaine ; – La place de l’archéologie au sein des autres sciences et le rôle de l’interdisciplinarité dans la pratique archéologique comme dans la construction de la discipline elle-même ; – Les démarches intellectuelles de l’archéologue.

Abstract

Mimesis soll als Grundkategorie einer dialektischen Theorie der Künste eingeführt werden. Dafür wird eine dialektisch-systematische Skizze des Begriffs angelegt: Mimesis ist eine Weise der Widerspiegelung von Realität, die selbst Realität ist, und ist insofern eine ontologisch-erkenntnistheoretische Kategorie. Sie erfasst zugleich auch das Verhältnis von Natur und Kultur und ist insofern eine anthropologische Kategorie. Vor diesem Hintergrund zeigt sich ihre kunsttheoretische Seite: Mimesis offenbart Verborgenes; sie macht sichtbar, was bisher unsichtbar war; sie entwirft eine Welt aus menschlicher Perspektive. Diese drei Seiten des Mimesisbegriffs werden aus Überlegungen von Aristoteles bis hin zu Benjamin, Ricœur und Hans Heinz Holz entwickelt.
