The research centres CeSEP, CRESA, and PERSONA of the Faculty of Philosophy at San Raffaele University, Milan, organize the International Conference and Spring School:

 

EMOTIONS, NORMATIVITY, AND SOCIAL LIFE

San Raffaele Spring School of Philosophy 2016 (SRSSP 2016)

Milan, June 6th – 7th – 8th, 2016

 

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 will select 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

Invited Speakers

Thomas Fuchs (Heidelberg University Hospital, Germany)
Anna Elisabetta Galeotti (University of Eastern Piedmont Amedeo Avogadro, Italy)
Edward Harcourt (Oxford University, UK)
Robin Jeshion (University of Southern California, USA)
Dieter Lohmar (University of Cologne, Germany)

Notification of acceptance: April 20th, 2016
