Fiction: Impossible!

por Martin Vacek

[Institute of Philosophy - Slovak Academy of Sciences, Bratislava, Slovakia]

no âmbito do Seminário Permanente de Filosofia das Ciências.

I argue that modal realism is unable to account for fictional discourse. My starting point is an overview of modal realism. I then present a dilemma for modal realism regarding fictional characters. Finally, I provide responses to both horns of the dilemma, one motivating a so-called modal dimensionalism, the other motivating a disjunctive analysis of modality. The former alternative includes impossible worlds, while the latter strategy is to treat fictional discourse as a kind of extraordinary modal reasoning. I argue that, given a certain modification of modal realism, both alternatives are modal realism friendly.

Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan

 

The Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan offers a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship on "Aesthetics of Performative Environments: Immersivity, Agency, Avatar"

Description of the research project: Immersive environments impact on artistic practices, professional applications, and everyday life. They convey a sense of embodiment, presence, and augmented existence. Interactivity via avatars opens up new affordances and agencies: novel forms of subjectivity are performed by theatrical and fictional experiences. Drawing on image theory, theatre and performance studies, the candidate shall explore the phenomenological and epistemological implications of performative environments.

Knowledge of Italian is not required.

The DEADLINE for applications is OCTOBER 16th, 2017 at noon. All documents must be received by this date.
Duration: Two-year renewable.
Grant: €21.000 gross per year.

Conference

Human Enhancement and Evolution
Scientific, Technological, Policy & ELS Considerations

Lisbon, 13th-14th December 2017.

 

Host Institution: Centre for Philosophy of Science of the University of Lisbon (CFCUL) [http://cfcul.fc.ul.pt/], C1, 3rd floor

The Conference will have two parts:

  1. Evolution and the Sciences and Technologies of Human Enhancement

    Organismal dynamics are such that organisms incontrovertibly affect the very evolutionary pressures that shape them, even if only indirectly. But seemingly, amongst all organisms and perhaps owing to their cognitive evolution, humans became exceptionally fine controllers of both theirs and other organisms' evolutionary processes. In virtue of the sciences and technologies of human enhancement, more effective exertion of control over evolution is nowadays becoming evident, and this is shown among others by the rise of new technics such as genetic editing tools. However, human enhancement and its broad evolutionary effects are still understudied.

    We invite contributions to the effort of understanding the plethora of ways in which evolution relates to human enhancement. As such, topics of interest may include, but are not limited to:

    • The human evolutionary possibilities: predictive models, challenges and limitations;
    • Directed evolution, both gene driven (e.g. genetic engineering, induced mutagenesis, and reprogenetics) or non-germline based;
    • Evolutionary trade-offs of assisted modes of human reproduction, immunity engineering, medical and health technologies, and of longevity enhancements (interferences in senescence and lifespan), their demographics and population dynamics;
    • Natural and artificially induced reticulate evolution (e.g. human-non-human transgenesis);
    • Present & future human evolution (e.g. k-selection and speciation);
    • The impact of technological evolution qua niche construction on human evolution and ecology (e.g. geoengineering; non-Earth-bounded evolution);
    • Non-carbon-based evolution (including AIs of all kinds & alien);
    • The evolution of 4E and scaffolded cognition;
    • The relation between fitness and human enhancement (e.g. does human enhancement enhance fitness?);
    • Working definitions of "human enhancement" for Evolutionary Theories;
    • Is there actual control over evolution? How could we understand it?
    • Human evolution in relation to Technology evolution (e.g. human-machine interfaces);

     

    Keynote Speaker(s):
    Professor John Harris; TBA.

    Dr. Alexander Gerner [CFCUL]; João Pinheiro [CFCUL]

     

  2. Policy & ELSA of Genome Editing and Human Enhancement
  3. Genome editing is a technology with the potential to promote and enhance health and understand disease. However, as many other disruptive advances in science, it also brings challenges at an ethical, legal, social, and political level, particularly regarding the treatment of hereditary diseases and the integrity of the human germline. The possibilities of genome-editing and its limits and consequences, specifically to therapeutic applications and targeted interventions in ecosystems are being broadly discussed by many. It will be important to contribute to the debate in a critical and transparent way with the participation of scientists, society and policy-makers. This will provide a platform to better assess the benefits and potential risks of the technology to help support the development of sound policies in the future.

    >We invite reflections upon the following themes (but not limited to):

    • Ethical, legal, political and social challenges associated with genome-editing;
    • Genetic editing: evolution of technology and medicine and its Implications for human health, and the natural environment;
    • Socio-ethical and policy-related questions about the acceptability of germline modification;
    • Challenges on defining "Genetic identity", parenthood and respective responsibilities: limits and consequences;
    • "Human enhancement" potential of genetic editing: Implications and scientific-technological feasibility thereof;
    • Responses to the challenge of established norms.

Measurement at the Crossroads

June 27-29, 2018 
University Paris Diderot, France
Laboratoire Sciences, Philosophie, Histoire (SPHERE), Paris

[site]

Call for abstracts

Measurement at the Crossroads is the third interdisciplinary conference to explore the history and philosophy of measurement after Dimensions of Measurement in Bielefeld (2013) and The Making of Measurement in Cambridge (2015). The organizers of the third conference, which will take place on 27-29 June 2018, in Paris, invite scholars interested in the history, philosophy and sociology of science to address questions related to measurement across disciplines ranging from the natural sciences to the life and human sciences.
The recent revival of the philosophy of measurement in the early 2000s appears to be instrumental in overcoming the tensions that obstructed science studies during much of the second half of the twentieth century. The Paris conference aspires to promote the new ways of addressing issues of quantification and measurement that are now emerging and promising to bridge the various gulfs – theoretical versus practical, descriptive versus normative – that have divided the philosophical, historical and sociological approaches to science. It is now recognized that questions of quantification transcend the earlier focus on meaning and representation which formerly attracted the attention of philosophers of science, and that these questions benefit from investigation alongside the means and processes that enable scientists, and human agents in general, to agree on their measurement results and make them reliable bases for decision and action. The resulting shift of attention towards the uses of measurement results in inference and prediction places the new agenda of philosophy of measurement at the crossroads of conceptual, epistemic, historical, material, technological and institutional issues.
The 2018 conference comes at a time when the field of metrology is about to reach an important turning point with the reform of the International System of Units (SI) that is to be announced by the end of 2018. With Measurement at the Crossroads we aspire to connect the discussions developing in the emerging field of history and philosophy of measurement with some of the issues arising from this major reshaping of the field of metrology. Special attention will thus be given to issues pertaining to the formation of systems of units and standards, as well as to related institutional matters. The conference will build upon the two former ones by inscribing these issues more explicitly in a world-wide and a long-term perspective. In addition to the enquiries related to the contemporary SI reform, time will therefore be allotted for studies concerned with how measurement units have been worked out in the past, from Antiquity to today's reform, in different regions of the world. This will offer a cultural-anthropological outlook on metrology.
Some of the questions listed below might be helpful to guide contributors without in any way constraining them:

• Quantification and measurement practices
Is it possible to devise a conception of quantity suited for all domains of science, and what are the specific difficulties raised by the definition of properties and quantities in the human sciences?
How can one deal with scientific error, especially experimental error? How can scientists evaluate uncertainty and risk relative to experimental results and their uses?
How can the study of measurement shed new light on the relations between theory, models, experiment and instrumentation?
How can philosophy of measurement contribute to classical problems of the philosophy of science? (e.g.: realism, conventionalism and operationalism in science)

• Units, standards and instruments
How did numbers, units and standards become separated in the course of history, and how did units become coordinated to one another through metrological systems of units?
How do standards contribute to the stabilization of facts? How do they affect human action and self-perception?
How do the descriptive and the normative intertwine in measurement?
What are the reasons behind the project of the new SI? What will be its conceptual, practical, technical and institutional consequences?

• Communities, institutions, normativity and trust
What social and institutional constraints are required to implement a global network of communicable, comparable and reliable measurement results?
How can decisions be taken on the basis of measurement under conditions of uncertainty?
What is the role of trust in the practice of measurement and in the assessment of scientific knowledge?
Can the philosophical, historical and sociological enquiry into measurement make us more aware of our responsibilities in the development of our technological society?

The Mind-Technology Problem - Investigating Minds, Selves and 21st Century Artifacts


Call for Papers

We invite chapter contributions for the volume "The Mind-Technology Problem – Investigating Minds, Selves and 21st Century Artifacts" forthcoming in the book series Studies in Brain and Mind (Springer). This book explores the relation between philosophy of mind and emerging technologies. Technologies that only recently seemed to be science fiction are becoming part of everyday life. Our life is increasingly saturated with 'smart' artifacts. The ubiquitous and mobile Internet amounts to a radically new epistemic and cognitive environment which we already inhabit. This smart environment is saturated with artificial intelligence systems that not only guide us to information on the Internet, but are transforming the way we inhabit the non-virtual realm: the home, the urban environment and beyond.

In the process, these technologies may be viewed as a form of rapidly evolving cognitive enhancement (Schneider, 2016, Heersmink, 2015). They may also be radically changing the human cognitive profile (Schneider and Mandik, 2016, Clowes, 2015; Clark, 2007) including the possibility of mind uploading (Corabi and Schneider, 2012). Some see these trends as deeply worrying, undermining a raft of our cognitive and social capacities (Carr, 2010; Turkle, 2011). Others see the relationship as a more of a continuum with the long history of artifactually led, cognitive evolution of human beings (Malafouris, 2013; Clark, 2003).

These technologies appear to have important implications for the human mind, sense of identity and even perhaps what we think human beings are. Other technological tendencies may stretch our ideas further toward super-intelligence, (within the skin) cognitive enhancements, and more distantly perhaps, machine consciousness. Yet while ideas of artificial general intelligence, cognitive enhancements and a smart environment are widely commented on, a serious analysis of their philosophical implications is only now getting started.

In this edited volume, we seek the best philosophical analysis of what current and near future 21sttechnology means for the metaphysics of mind. Some of the questions still open include: Should the adoption or incorporation of current technologies, such as smart phones or wearable gadgets be viewed as enhancements or diminishments of the human mind? Or is such a framework too restricted? Might they transform the sorts of self-knowledge available to us, or what self-knowledge is? Might the use of such gadgetry force us to rethink the boundary between human beings and technology, or indeed enduring philosophical questions such as personal identity or what the self is? According to various theories of personal identity, are radical cognitive enhancements even compatible with personal survival?

In thinking about minds, there is a common tendency to define the ontological status of the mind in terms of whatever is the latest technology. The computational model of mind has certainly been one of the most influential and is currently undergoing important challenges and challenging reinventions (Schneider and Mandik, 2016). Is the notion that the mind or self as a program, which often guides public and philosophical discussions, metaphysically well founded? Whether or not our minds are actually computational, our ability to interface with machines, from virtual reality technologies such as Oculus Rift to our smart-phones and wearable gadgetry, are undergoing a profound shift and are rapidly reshaping the metaphors and concepts philosophers use to think about minds and the conclusion they draw (Metzinger, 2009; Chalmers, 2007).

As a follow up of our "Minds, Selves and 21st Century Technology" meeting in Lisbon (http://mindandcognition.weebly.com/mind-selves-and-technology.html), we seek high quality submissions that investigate the philosophical implications of the engagement between 21st century technology, metaphysics and the philosophy of mind. We are especially interested in submissions that do not indulge in extensive futuristic speculation but focus on current or near-ready technologies which are already changing the shape of the human (and machine) cognitive landscape and our philosophical understanding of mind. Research question include the following:

 

Extended Mind, Extended Cognition, Distributed self:

  • How should we think of distributed and extended memory in the context of 21st century technology?
  • Can artifacts make possible new forms of extended self-knowledge? What are the consequences of artifacts—for instance, the ubiquitous smart-phone—for notions such as the minimal self, the narrative self, or the distributed self?
  • What is the role of cognitive artifacts in the cognitive enhancement debate?

 

Metaphysics of the mind:

  • Does the current state of the art of machine consciousness, brain enhancement or smart ambient technology warrant predictions and extrapolations on questions like personal identity, privacy, super intelligence, etc. many want to make?
  • Does current work in this realm tell us anything about phenomenal consciousness? The organization of mind? The possibility of artificial minds?
  • Do hierarchical predictive processing systems support the theoretical literature on the metaphysics of mind (mind, big data, minds online, deep minds)?

 

Radical Brain Enhancement and Uploading:

  • Would an uploaded mind be me? Is mind uploading a myth?
  • Does radical brain enhancement challenge our sense of self, personal identity and / or humanity?
