Becker, J. Fischer & M. Schloßberger, (eds). Dezentrierungen. Zur Konfrontation von Philosophischer Anthropologie, Strukturalismus und Poststrukturalismus. Berlin: Akademie Verlag, 2012, 364 p.

Die Philosophische Anthropologie ist in der Forschung bislang vor allem zum Existenzialismus und zur Kritischen Theorie in Beziehung gesetzt worden. Das erstaunt wenig, wenn man die Wirkungsmacht dieser beiden Pradigmen bedenkt.

Ertragreicher ist jedoch der bisher vernachlässigte Vergleich mit Strukturalismus und Poststrukturalismus, da hier der Anteil an gemeinsamen Problemen und Fragestellungen größer ist, was jede Diskussion von vornherein interessanter macht: Berührt sich die Philosophische Anthtropologie mit dem Strukturalismus nicht insofern in einer Abkehr vom Historismus, als beide Traditionen nach der Rolle durchlaufender Strukturen fragen, die den Zugang zu den Phänomenen regulieren? Und trifft sie sich nicht zugleich mit der vom Poststrukturalismus artikulierten Kritik an der Verabsolutierung dieser Regelsysteme, wenn sie auf der Geschichtlichkeit und Lebendigkeit der Praktiken besteht, in denen die Subjekte ihre Identität erst ausbilden, aber auch aufs Spiel setzen? Die Beiträge des Bandes zeichnen das Streitgespäch zwischen den drei Strömungen nach und diskutieren deren Gemeinsamkeiten.

De terreur van de ‘like’-knop. Zit u ook de hele dag van alles te liken op Facebook? Vindt u het ook fijn om geretweet te worden? Stuurt u ook smsjes naar tv-talenten We zijn in een heuse jurysamenleving terechtgekomen. Voortdurend nemen we elkaar de maat. Maar is de wereld wel onder te verdelen in ‘leuk’ en ‘niet leuk’?

Mark Traa laat zijn licht erover schijnen en interviewt en passant hoogleraar mediastudies José van Dijck (Universiteit van Amsterdam) en hoogleraar wijsgerige antropologie Jos de Mul (Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam).

Jos de Mul, Athens, or the fate of Europe. Two faces of Greek tragedy. Invited lecture, Symposium Art and Culture. 23rd World Congress of Philosophy, Athens, August 4-10, 2013.WCP2013

The World Congresses of Philosophy are organized every five years by the International Federation of Philosophical Societies in collaboration with one of its member societies. The xxiii World Congress of Philosophy will be held from August 4 through August 10, 2013, in Athens, Greece, under the auspices of the Hellenic Organizing Committee, which has been constituted by the Greek Philosophical Society.

The Congress has several aims, which are to be understood as complementary:

To inquire into the world’s philosophical traditions and compare them in terms of their diverse contributions and possible mutual cross-fertilization.

To reflect on the tasks and functions of philosophy in the contemporary world, taking account of the contributions, expectations, and gaps in philosophical awareness associated with other disciplines, with political, religious, social, economic, technological, etc., activities and with diverse cultures and traditions.

To emphasize the importance of philosophical reflection for public discourse on global issues affecting humanity.

Because of its cultural history and geographical situation, Athens is an ideal location for stimulating encounters between scholars from across the world. The main theme of the 2013 Congress, ‘Philosophy as Inquiry and Way of Life’, emphasizing both theory and practice, recalls the declaration of Socrates that the unexamined life is not worth living.

The 2013 Congress invites discussion of the nature, roles, and responsibilities of philosophy and philosophers today. It is committed to paying heed to the problems, conflicts, inequalities, and injustices connected with the development of a planetary civilization that is at once multicultural and techno-scientific.

Jos de Mul, eLife. From biology to technology and back again, in P. Bruno and S.Campbell (Eds.), The Science, Politics and Ontology of Life-Philosophy. London: Bloomsbury, 2013, 93-107.

One of the most striking developments in the history of the sciences over the past fifty years has been the gradual moving towards each other of biology and computer science and their increasing tendency to overlap. Two things may be held responsible for that. The first is the tempestuous development of molecular biology which followed the first adequate description, in 1953, of the structure of the double helix of the DNA, the carrier of hereditary information. Biologists therefore became increasingly interested in computer science, the science which focuses, among other things, on the question what information really is and how it is encoded and transferred. No less important was that it would have been impossible to sequence and decipher the human genome without the use of ever stronger computers. This resulted in a fundamental digitalization of biology. This phenomenon is particularly visible in molecular biology, where DNA-research increasingly moves from the analogical world of biology to the digital world of the computer.[1]

In their turn, computer scientists have become increasingly interested in biology. One of the highly promising branches of computer science which has developed since the 1950s was the research into artificial intelligence and artificial life. Although the expectations were high – it was predicted that within some decades computers and robots would exist whose intelligence would exceed by far that of man – success remained limited to some specific areas, in spite of the spectacular development of information technologies in the past decades. It is true that, more than fifty years later, we have computers which can defeat the chess world champion, but in many areas toddlers and beetles still perform better than the most advanced computers. Top down programming of artificial intelligence and artificial life turned out to be much less simple than expected. This not only resulted in the fact that computer scientists started to study in depth the fundamental biological question what life basically is, but it also inspired them to use a bottom up approach, which consists of having computers and robots develop ‘themselves’ in accordance with biological principles.

Jos de Mul, Keynote lecture at the conference  The Shape of Diversity to Come: Global Community, Global Archipelago, or a New Civility? Erasmus University Rotterdam, January 25, 2013. 

Shape of_Diversity_to_Come_Banner625The nation state, imagined as a formation encompassing a culturally unified people, is now straining under the challenges of globalization and the revolution in communication technology. This conference will consider the dynamic changes that are currently taking place with respect to cultural and religious diversity as a result of the explosion in communication technologies, address the conflicts they give rise to, and discuss the ramifications for both law and politics.

Two views on the impact of communication and information technology dominate the scholarship: one in which communication leads to the emergence of a global community and an interconnected global culture; and a second in which it leads to an archipelago of communities that do not necessarily converge with the boundaries nation states, i.e. to a cultural Balkanization of the world across national borders.

This conference will also address a third alternative. Instead of presenting the implications of the networked information and communication infrastructure in the opposing metaphors of a global community or a global archipelago, one can also argue for a normative understanding of what is at stake. Instead of endorsing either utopian notions of global community or dystopian fears of an Internet with walled gardens, one can vouch for an internet that allows for interconnectivity without accepting the increased personalization that leads to unprecedented surveillance and social sorting in both the private and the public sphere.

We hope this conference will be a stimulating gathering of scholars from different disciplines and increase our understanding of the legal and political implications of globalization and communication technology for national and cultural identity.
