Philosophy for Lunch "Rethinking Ignorance"
3/5/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, March 11, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Traditionally, ignorance is understood as a form of “not knowing” that is the product of neglect and could thus be resolved with learning and education. However, over the past decade, there has been increased interest among philosophers to reconsider how we understand ignorance. Instead of viewing ignorance as a matter of neglect, some contemporary philosophers now frame ignorance as something substantive in its own right. This new framework considers ignorance as a definitively social phenomenon and aims to account for the role of social identities and modes of belief-formation that are common to experiences of ignorance. Recent studies in this field have been especially useful for thinking through contemporary political and cultural issues in the United States. In this P4L, we will consider the basic foundation for contemporary work in the in this field by working through some of its fundamental concepts and examples from Linda Alcoff, Lorraine Code, Charles Mills, and Sandra Harding.

Dr. Volkan was a member of the International Negotiation Network (INN) under the directorship of former President Jimmy Carter. Among other positions held, he has been a consultant to the World Health Organization in Albania and Macedonia; a member of the International Advisory Board, Leonard Davis Institute for International Relations, Hebrew University, Jerusalem; an inaugural Yitzhak Rabin Fellow, Rabin Center for Israeli Studies, Tel Aviv; a visiting professor of psychiatry, University of Ankara; a visiting professor of political psychology, Bahceşehir University, Istanbul; a visiting professor of law, Harvard University; and a Fulbright/Sigmund Freud-Foundation visiting scholar of psychoanalysis in Vienna, Austria. Dr. Volkan was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize five times with letters of support being sent from twenty-seven countries.

Dr. Volkan will address the impact of transgenerational transmissions on individuals and societies. He will discuss the notion of "chosen traumas'' – the transgenerational conveyance of long-lasting “tasks” that perpetuates the cycle of societal trauma – and "entitlement ideologies." Leaders, especially those with narcissistic personality organization, may reactivate a "chosen trauma" and manipulate an "entitlement ideology" within the large group. This, in turn, increases the shared narcissistic investment in large-group identity and changes its characteristics. The members of the society (or followers of the narcissistic leader), under the influence of large-group psychology, can become preoccupied with repairing old wounds and feel entitled to carry out even inhumane massive destructions. Dr. Volkan will further discuss the severe political division in the USA at the present time.

She is also interested in future climate changes, particularly climate feedback processes and the planet's sensitivity to increased carbon dioxide. Dr. Marvel teaches in Columbia's MA in Climate & Society Program and writes the "Hot Planet" column for Scientific American. Named one of "15 Women Who Will Save the World" by Time Magazine, she has been profiled by the New York Times and Rolling Stone, and her 2017 TED talk has been viewed over one million times. Before becoming a climate scientist, she received a PhD in theoretical particle physics from Cambridge University, where she was a Gates scholar.



Despite improvements in computing power, climate modeling, and basic theoretical understanding, the Earth’s physical response to a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide remains uncertain. Can observations be useful in constraining this theoretical quantity? We have high-quality information on recent trends: greenhouse gas concentrations have increased since the industrial revolution, and the planet has warmed in response. But I will argue that this recent history provides only weak constraints on the eventual climate sensitivity: observations of a transient climate are poor predictors of a future equilibrium state. Reconstructions of past equilibria both colder (the Last Glacial Maximum) and warmer (the mid-Pliocene) than the present provide stronger constraints, suggesting that the extremely high climate sensitivities of some state-of-the-art climate models are unrealistic. I’ll present a framework for facilitating apples-to-apples comparisons of past and future climate and discuss how to understand, reduce, and communicate the uncertainties associated with future climate response.

Philosophy for Lunch - “What Kind of Thing Is a Musical Instrument?”
2/24/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, March 4, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

The philosopher of technology Albert Borgmann claims that musical instruments are "focal things." He states this in-passing and without developing the idea. But more generally, Borgmann does explain what a focal thing is: focal things (a) have no functional equivalents; (b) they unify a context; (c) they make demands on us; (c) they are inconspicuous; and (e) they have the capacity to center and illuminate our lives. What are some other examples of focal things? Get ready for an unusual list: a festive meal, the wilderness, a fireplace, a trout, and the path of a run. Does characterizing a guitar or a violin as a focal thing help us to better understand how these instruments function in the lives of musicians and music enthusiasts? Join us for the next P4L to read and discuss key passages from Borgmann’s book, Technology and the Character of Contemporary Life. This session will explore a surprising intersection where the philosophy of music and the philosophy of technology meet (the philosophical method in the background will be Existential Phenomenology).

This Is What Democracy Looks Like?
2/22/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, March 18, 2021 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Details:

democracy


Our panel of economists, working both inside and outside of academia, will focus on the tensions between long-range planning and the frequent need to improve economic solutions given the vagaries of life. Broadly, they ask, what are the correlations between market data and democracy?


Panelists: Jim Lightner, President of Falcon Management, and Scott Axelrod, Director of Research at Falcon Management, from the vantage point as economists in the private sector, will speak about the V-Dem Project and correlations between democracy indicators and future market returns. David Axelrod, Department of Economics, will speak on his analysis of the role and power of spirituality in economic analysis and decision-making. Luis Portes, Department of Economics, will speak on insights gained from using computational techniques to study business cycles, international trade, and business inequality. Collectively the panelists will engage both audiences that tend to think about democracy without attending much to the relevance of markets to democracy, and also those who tend to focus on markets and not democracy.

Philosophy for Lunch - “The World Beyond the Senses” (Updated)
2/17/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, February 25, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Despite appearances, philosophers and scientists have often argued that the external world is colorless. Though objects may look red, green, blue, and so on, in reality, they are not. But few have thought this of shape. Most think that squareness, rectangularity, roundness and other geometric qualities are really out there in the world. Why the difference in treatment? 18th Century Scottish philosopher Thomas Reid thinks he has an explanation. If he’s right, the tendency to ‘kick color out of the world’ may be based on nothing more than an abuse of language.

If you would like to be added to the P4L e-list, please email Philosophy@montclair.edu


What is P4L?
Students, professors, and other philosophy enthusiasts close-read and discuss a few great passages of philosophy.

Who's invited?
No preparation or previous knowledge of philosophy is needed. Everyone is welcome!

The Center on Global Human Trafficking in collaboration with RIGS is organizing a roundtable on The Reality of Human Trafficking in the Era of Misinformation.


Manipulative disinformation campaigns relying on social media have not only affected the very foundations of our political systems in recent years, but have also distorted our understanding of social issues, such as human trafficking. This roundtable seeks to scrutinize the connections between the politics of information dissemination, large global patterns of anti-feminist oppression in the context of transnational labor and organized crime, and systemic genderized and race-based injustice in different criminal justice systems to cope with these challenges. Panelists including scholars from a variety of fields and disciplines share their views and reflect on how to best envision and implement strategies to address these repressive, power-driven institutional and cultural obstacles at home and abroad.

Masterclass with a leading flute soloist and the flutist of Imani Winds. He will lead a masterclass for MSU students, share practice techniques and insight into his multi-faceted career.


Brandon Patrick George is a leading flute soloist and chamber musician, with an adventurous repertoire extending from the baroque to today. He is the flutist of the Grammy®-nominated Imani Winds and has made appearances as a concerto soloist with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Albany Symphony Orchestra, and the American Composers Orchestra, among others. He has been hailed by The New York Times as “the elegant Brandon Patrick George,” as a “virtuoso” by The Washington Post, and called a “knockout musician with a gorgeous sound” by The Philadelphia Inquirer. His debut album, featuring works by Kalevi Aho, J.S. Bach, Pierre Boulez, and Sergei Prokofiev, was released by Haenssler Classics in September 2020; The New York Times has described it as “a program that showcases the flute in all its wit, warmth and brilliance.”


Brandon has performed at Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Elbphilharmonie, the Kennedy Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Dresden Music Festival, and the Prague Spring Festival. In addition to his work with Imani Winds, Brandon has collaborated with members of the Gryphon Trio, the New York Philharmonic, the Jasper String Quartet, and performed live on New York’s WQXR with harpist Bridget Kibbey. Prior to his solo career, Brandon performed as a guest with many of the world’s leading ensembles including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE). With the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Brandon performed at Walt Disney Concert Hall and at the Hollywood Bowl under conductors including Music Director Gustavo Dudamel, Karina Canellakis, Ludovic Morlot, and John Williams. Brandon has toured with the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), appearing at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), the Park Avenue Armory (NYC), and the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in England. His time with the LA Phil and with ICE allowed him to work closely with some of the foremost composers of our time including John Adams, Louis Andriessen, Steve Reich, and George Lewis. Brandon is a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music at Oberlin College, where he studied under Michel Debost before receiving further training in Paris under Sophie Cherrier. He received his Master of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music, where he won the Concerto Competition and subsequently appeared as soloist in C.P.E. Bach’s Flute Concerto in D Minor.

Philosophy for Lunch - “The World Beyond the Senses”
2/16/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, February 25, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Despite appearances, philosophers and scientists have often argued that the external world is colorless. Though objects may look red, green, blue, and so on, in reality, they are not. But few have thought this of shape. Most think that squareness, rectangularity, roundness and other geometric qualities are really out there in the world. Why the difference in treatment? 18th Century Scottish philosopher Thomas Reid thinks he has an explanation. If he’s right, the tendency to ‘kick color out of the world’ may be based on nothing more than an abuse of language.

If you would like to be added to the P4L e-list, please email Philosophy@montclair.edu


What is P4L?
Students, professors, and other philosophy enthusiasts close-read and discuss a few great passages of philosophy.

Who's invited?
No preparation or previous knowledge of philosophy is needed. Everyone is welcome!

Introduction to Cyber-Archaeology by Professor Maurizio Forte, Duke University
2/15/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Wednesday, February 24, 2021 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Details:

The Archaeological Institute of America and the Center for Heritage and Archaeological Studies, Montclair State University presents Introduction to Cyber-Archaeology by Professor Maurizio Forte, Duke University.


Cyber-archaeology is a branch of archaeological research concerned with the digital simulation of the past. In this context the past is seen as generated by the interaction of multiple scenarios and simulations and by the creation of different digital embodiments. The term also recalls the ecological cybernetics approach, based on the informative modeling of organism-environment relationships. It allows for the formation and validation of scientific theories about archaeological contexts and material cultures. Cyber-archaeology assumes that the past cannot be reconstructed but rather simulated.



Maurizio Forte is a Professor of Classical Studies Art, Art History, and Visual Studies and also the founder of the DIG@Lab (for a digital knowledge of the past) at Duke. His main research topics are digital archaeology, Etruscan and Pre-Roman archaeology, classical archaeology and neuro-archaeology. His primary archaeological research questions concern the development, transformation and decline of ancient cities.

Italiani che lasciano l’Italia (Italians Leaving Italy, Mimesis, 2020): A Book Presentation (Updated)
2/10/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Tuesday, February 23, 2021 12:15 PM - 1:30 PM
Details:

Between a past of emigration that is considered archived and a present of immigration that is sometimes problematic, the phenomenon of Italians who increasingly leave the country has gone mostly unnoticed in the past decade. Only recently have the social sciences begun to take an interest in young people who, due to a weak and unattractive local labor market, have started emigrating again. Between the years immediately preceding the beginning of the 2009 crisis and 2019, the Italian presence abroad increased by 70%, and Italy now occupies the 9th position in the world ranking of emigration countries. Through a series of empirical researches carried out in various countries of Europe and North America, the volume gives an account of the expectations and successes as well as difficulties and failures of new Italian emigrants, addressing both the phenomenon of emigration that produces integration into a skilled labor market and of emigration that ends up generating low-skilled and, in some cases, even under-paid workers.

Holonomics and Policy: A Framework for Modernizing Regulatory Review
2/1/2021

Event Date(s) / Time: Tuesday, February 16, 2021 2:15 PM - 3:15 PM
Details:

President Biden wrote a memorandum on modernizing regulation review. In particular, it is seeking to expand on current cost-benefit analysis to include "concrete suggestions on how the regulatory review process can promote public health and safety, economic growth, social welfare, racial justice, environmental stewardship, human dignity, equity, and the interests of future generations." This has the potential to significantly change how regulations are determined.


A holonomic (holistic economic) framework for decision making, as well an approach to present value discounting, critical to cost-benefit analysis, are developed. By incorporating the concepts of endogenous and exogenous constraints, we clarify the distinction between what is feasible and acceptable (what can and what should be done). The concepts of external and internal preferences will allow for the distinction between the things we want and who we choose to be. The determination of discount rate and time horizon based on the above allowing for a greater regard for a common future. It will lay out how the desired criteria can be included in a formal economic approach that includes consideration of a wider range of resources beyond the merely financial.

Networking Best Practices to Land the Job and Career You Want


Building and leveraging a network of mutually beneficial career relationships is easier than you may think. And having this network of relationships is crucial in today’s challenging environment, where being good at your job is simply not good enough, or where applying to lots of jobs is an inefficient way to job-search. In this webinar, you will learn strategies and techniques that will help you to build a network of relationships that will advance your career. You'll leave this webinar with specific action items and resources that you can use immediately to help you reach your career goals. In particular, we’ll cover:



  • Who’s really in your network – it’s much broader than you may think!

  • How your "pitch" can create exciting new opportunities within interviews an informational meetings, or at work

  • How to proactively take stock of the crucial relationships that are key to your career success, and then address gaps

  • How to easily keep in touch, the essence of true networking

  • How to tap into the "hidden job market" and land meetings with important decision-makers who you don't know (or just met)

  • Under-used yet highly effective ways to leverage your LinkedIn network for career opportunities

About the Session - Networking Best Practices to Land the Job and Career You Want


Building and leveraging a network of mutually beneficial career relationships is easier than you may think. And having this network of relationships is crucial in today’s challenging environment, where being good at your job is simply not good enough, or where applying to lots of jobs is an inefficient way to job-search.

You'll leave this webinar with specific action items and resources that you can use immediately to help you reach your career goals. In particular, we’ll cover:



  • Who’s really in your network – it’s much broader than you may think!

  • How your "pitch" can create exciting new opportunities within interviews an informational meetings, or at work

  • How to proactively take stock of the crucial relationships that are key to your career success, and then address gaps

  • How to easily keep in touch, the essence of true networking

  • How to tap into the "hidden job market" and land meetings with important decision-makers who you don't know (or just met)

  • Under-used yet highly effective ways to leverage your LinkedIn network for career opportunities

Pictures Worth a Thousand Words. Musical Images of the Middle Ages.


In the Middle Ages, as in our own times, music was understood to be a constituent part of the self; musical performance was central to the formation of community and the articulation of identity. Medieval images of music reflect the cultural and societal values associated with performance. Recent research on the visual representation of music in the Middle Ages encompasses a broad and steadily expanding range of approaches. These include the interpretation of images depicting musical performance and the multidisciplinary analysis of built environments in which music was performed. Using new digital resources to study musical images and spaces makes it possible not only to explore diverse cultures and places, but also to discover meaningful connections among them.


Dr. Susan Boynton is an award-winning author, teacher, and leading researcher on the liturgy and music in medieval Western monasticism, particularly the abbey of Cluny; manuscript studies; music in the Iberian peninsula; music and childhood; and intersections of music with the visual arts. Dr. Boynton is Professor of Music (Historical Musicology) at Columbia University in the City of New York.

Dr. Bologna is a Professor of Biology and the Director of the Marine Biology and Coastal Sciences Program at Montclair State University. Dr. Bologna holds degrees in Zoology, Oceanography, and Marine Science. His research expertise lies within marine ecology with emphasis in Seagrass ecology and genetics; Mangrove communities; and Jellyfish community structure, food webs, invasive species and population genetics.


Experiential learning is one way of creating deep understanding of subject matter, as well as developing a passion for the field. I have been engaged in leading extended field experiences with students for almost 20 years to 'immerse' students in the natural world. In March 2020 Dr. Krumins and I led a group of graduate and undergraduate students to Ecuador to explore and learn about the incredible wildlife and the enduring legacy of revolutionary ideas that this region has generated. Our time in the Galapagos, while short, spanned centuries of scientific thought and millions of years of geologic history. The Galapagos Islands have shaped our understanding of chemosynthesis and the origins of life on Earth and that radical idea of Evolution. Join me on an immersive journey.

Re-Writing Women into Art History (Updated)
11/30/2020

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, December 3, 2020 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM
Time Zone: Europe/London
Local Time: Thursday, December 3, 2020 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM
Details:

Art History Panel


This event will take a fresh look at women as collectors, patrons, exhibition organisers and museum founders in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Until recently, women’s contributions in these areas has been undervalued, not keeping up with the attention and critical recognition that women artists have received. Our three speakers will consider the achievements of some extraordinary and fascinating women in the art world whose accomplishments are less well known than their male counterparts of the period, though are equally significant.


The event will be hosted by Sandi Toksvig and will feature three, fifteen-minute talks by the speakers followed by a panel discussion. Presentations will include the following:


Meaghan Clarke, Senior Lecturer in Art History, University of Sussex
While women are invariably absent in institutional histories of this period, the elusive records of temporary exhibitions indicate that women were active cultural agents. Fair Women was the historical equivalent of a ‘blockbuster’ exhibition. Organised by a committee of women, this exhibition of portraits of women and decorative objects opened in 1894 to great fanfare at the Grafton Galleries in London. It coincided with the emergence of the independent New Woman in novels, plays and the press. In looking nostalgically back to previous models of female behaviour, the exhibition has been seen as a ‘slap in the face’ for the New Woman. However, on closer examination Fair Women complicated assumptions about the representation of women and the superficiality of female collectors and art patrons. Women were celebrated for their ‘wit and intellect’, and the show revealed an important network of collectors, patrons and ‘New’ women.


Shona Kallestrup, Associate Lecturer, School of Art History, University of St Andrews
The charismatic Queen Marie of Romania (1875-1938) was an amateur artist, writer and collector of unusual tastes. Arriving in Romania in 1893, this British-born princess acted as a conduit for transnational artistic exchange, aligning herself with the breakaway Bucharest group ‘Artistic Youth’ and cultivating an international network of contacts that included the American dancer Loïe Fuller with whom she made a ballet and film. With her talent for public media strategy, Marie crafted a vision of monarchy which at times shocked her British relatives, but placed her at the heart of the Romanian national ideal. Central to her success was the distinctive visual culture she curated in a series of extraordinary palace interiors filled with collections of Art Nouveau, Byzantine and peasant art. Widely disseminated as photographs and postcards, these served as powerful performative settings for Marie to act out her successive roles as a Princesse Lointaine, wartime saviour and ‘Mother of all the Romanians’.


Elizabeth Emery, Professor of French, Dept of World Languages and Cultures, Montclair State University
The Musée d’Ennery, the first free public museum of Asian art in Paris (opened in 1908), owes its existence to a young woman, Clémence Lecarpentier (1823-1898), who began collecting small sculpted objects related to Far Eastern mythology in the 1840s. At her death in 1898, she bequeathed her collection, which had grown to nearly 7,000 objects to the French state, along with the house whose galleries she had designed to showcase it. Despite the fact that she was praised by contemporaries for her pioneering work as a collector of Far Eastern sculpted and ceramic objects, and despite the existence of archives that clearly document her fifty-year engagement with the collection, scholars continue to present this remarkable house museum either as the work of her wealthy husband, playwright Adolphe d’Ennery, or as a joint venture. The elision of Clémence Lecarpentier Desgranges d’Ennery’s agency from cultural memory derives from complicated social factors, among them women’s legal status in France, nationalism, classism, and a sexism that persists in marketing materials that characterize the collection as a “jewel box,” an “opulent time capsule,” or as a “cabinet of curiosity.”

Re-Writing Women into Art History
11/30/2020

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, December 3, 2020 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM
Time Zone: Europe/London
Local Time: Thursday, December 3, 2020 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM
Details:

This event will take a fresh look at women as collectors, patrons, exhibition organisers and museum founders in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Until recently, women’s contributions in these areas has been undervalued, not keeping up with the attention and critical recognition that women artists have received. Our three speakers will consider the achievements of some extraordinary and fascinating women in the art world whose accomplishments are less well known than their male counterparts of the period, though are equally significant.


The event will be hosted by Sandi Toksvig and will feature three, fifteen-minute talks by the speakers followed by a panel discussion. Presentations will include the following:


Meaghan Clarke, Senior Lecturer in Art History, University of Sussex
While women are invariably absent in institutional histories of this period, the elusive records of temporary exhibitions indicate that women were active cultural agents. Fair Women was the historical equivalent of a ‘blockbuster’ exhibition. Organised by a committee of women, this exhibition of portraits of women and decorative objects opened in 1894 to great fanfare at the Grafton Galleries in London. It coincided with the emergence of the independent New Woman in novels, plays and the press. In looking nostalgically back to previous models of female behaviour, the exhibition has been seen as a ‘slap in the face’ for the New Woman. However, on closer examination Fair Women complicated assumptions about the representation of women and the superficiality of female collectors and art patrons. Women were celebrated for their ‘wit and intellect’, and the show revealed an important network of collectors, patrons and ‘New’ women.


Shona Kallestrup, Associate Lecturer, School of Art History, University of St Andrews
The charismatic Queen Marie of Romania (1875-1938) was an amateur artist, writer and collector of unusual tastes. Arriving in Romania in 1893, this British-born princess acted as a conduit for transnational artistic exchange, aligning herself with the breakaway Bucharest group ‘Artistic Youth’ and cultivating an international network of contacts that included the American dancer Loïe Fuller with whom she made a ballet and film. With her talent for public media strategy, Marie crafted a vision of monarchy which at times shocked her British relatives, but placed her at the heart of the Romanian national ideal. Central to her success was the distinctive visual culture she curated in a series of extraordinary palace interiors filled with collections of Art Nouveau, Byzantine and peasant art. Widely disseminated as photographs and postcards, these served as powerful performative settings for Marie to act out her successive roles as a Princesse Lointaine, wartime saviour and ‘Mother of all the Romanians’.


Elizabeth Emery, Professor of French, Dept of World Languages and Cultures, Montclair State University
The Musée d’Ennery, the first free public museum of Asian art in Paris (opened in 1908), owes its existence to a young woman, Clémence Lecarpentier (1823-1898), who began collecting small sculpted objects related to Far Eastern mythology in the 1840s. At her death in 1898, she bequeathed her collection, which had grown to nearly 7,000 objects to the French state, along with the house whose galleries she had designed to showcase it. Despite the fact that she was praised by contemporaries for her pioneering work as a collector of Far Eastern sculpted and ceramic objects, and despite the existence of archives that clearly document her fifty-year engagement with the collection, scholars continue to present this remarkable house museum either as the work of her wealthy husband, playwright Adolphe d’Ennery, or as a joint venture. The elision of Clémence Lecarpentier Desgranges d’Ennery’s agency from cultural memory derives from complicated social factors, among them women’s legal status in France, nationalism, classism, and a sexism that persists in marketing materials that characterize the collection as a “jewel box,” an “opulent time capsule,” or as a “cabinet of curiosity.”


The panel discussion will be moderated by Thomas Stammers, Associate Professor (Modern European Cultural History) in the Department of History, Durham University.

Philosophy for Lunch: What's the Point of Being Rational? (Updated)
11/30/2020

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, December 3, 2020 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Man thinking


Being rational is valuable, at least in part, because it is a reliable means of getting true beliefs. But there is a puzzle about our use of the terms ‘rational’ and ‘irrational’. Sometimes we are inclined to call beliefs ‘rational’ even when they are not formed by a reliable (truth-conducive) process. Conversely, we are also inclined to call some beliefs ‘irrational’ even when they are formed by a reliable process. This is strange. Why don’t we call all beliefs formed by unreliable processes ‘irrational’? And why don’t we call all beliefs formed by reliable processes ‘rational’? For the final P4L of the semester, we’ll unpack this puzzle and consider a potential solution: epistemic communism. (photo: Buster Keaton)

The Ethics of Imagination in Cavendish's Orations of Diver Sorts (Updated)

Event Date(s) / Time: Wednesday, December 9, 2020 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Cavenshish Classic artwork


Margaret Cavendish understood imagination to hold potential therapeutic qualities for those who have experienced violence and destruction. The productive use of imagination is central not only to Cavendish’s natural philosophy and literary works, but also to her presentation of the varied ethical responses to the tragedies of war in Part III of Orations of Diver Sorts. In this text, Cavendish’s advice to individuals “ruined by war” is to rid their mind of fears, grief, and terrors and inspire hope by entertaining themselves with “pleasing imaginations.” Cavendish recommends the power of imagination to inspire the hope of the populace and catalyze the rebuilding of a city or a commonwealth after war, either in the capacity of electing new magistrates, building statues, or staging theatrical performances. Ultimately, drawing on these examples and Cavendish’s other works, I argue that Cavendish demonstrates an ethical dimension of imagination that is essential to human flourishment after the experience of tragedy.


Aminah Hasan-Birdwell is a Visiting Assistant Professor and Associate Research Scholar in the Department of Philosophy at Columbia University and is the Alva and Beatrice Bradley Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Furman University. Her research is primarily invested in the history of philosophy, history of political philosophy, twentieth-century philosophy, and philosophy of race and gender. Specifically, Dr. Hasan-Birdwell attends to marginalized figures in early modern philosophy and their contributions to philosophical issues of ontology, political thought, and ethics, as well as their relevance to combating the presence of racism and misogyny in the philosophical canon.

MSU Jazz Ensemble with Marcus Printup
11/25/2020

Event Date(s) / Time: Wednesday, November 25, 2020 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Details:

MSU Jazz Ensemble


The Montclair State University Jazz Ensemble will be performing with trumpeter, composer and faculty member Marcus Printup. His arrangements of songs by Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Kenny Dorham, and Wayne Shorter have been played by the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. The MSUJE will also be playing Mr Printup’s original composition, The Journey Suite, a five movement suite inspired by his call and commitment to study jazz trumpet at the university level.


Marcus Printup Bio


Born and raised in Conyers, Georgia, Marcus Printup’s first musical experiences came from hearing the fiery gospel music his parents sang in church. He would later discover jazz as a senior in high school. Marcus attended Georgia State University, then transferred to the University of North Florida on a music scholarship. It was during his studies at UNF that he competed and won the prestigious International Trumpet Guild Jazz Trumpet Competition. In 1991, Mr. Printup’s life would change when he met his mentor and friend-to-be, the incomparable pianist Marcus Roberts. Mr. Roberts introduced him to world renowned trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis which in time led to the invitation to join the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra in 1993. Marcus has been a member ever since. Among many others, Mr. Printup has performed/recorded with Betty Carter (an inductee into Ms. Carter’s first Jazz Ahead class in 1994), Dianne Reeves, Eric Reed, Cyrus Chestnut, Wycliffe Gordon, and Marcus Roberts. Mr. Printup has led multiple recordings on several major record jazz labels:Blue Note Records Song for the Beautiful Woman, Unveiled, Hub Songs, Nagel Heyer Records The New Boogaloo, Steeplechase Records Peace In The Abstract, Bird of Paradise, London Lullaby, Ballads All Night, A Time for Love, Homage, Desire, Lost, and his latest Young Bloods. Mr. Printup continues to be in demand nationally and abroad as a facilitator/educator for clinics and masterclasses. He is involved with educational programs such as JALC’s Essentially Ellington Competition, The New School (Manhattan), The International Trumpet Guild and Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead at the Kennedy Center. With his wife Riza Printup, the Printups created RiMarcable Publications LLC through which they have published their first children’s book and arrangements for big band and jazz combos. In 2005, a proclamation was granted to Mr. Printup declaring August 22nd Marcus Printup Day in his home town of Conyers, GA.

Authors consider the well known Pigou-Dalton transfer principal and strong equity in the context of intragenerational equity in an infinite generation society.
The income (resources) transfer from rich to poor is considered to be welfare entirely under certain circumstances.


In this paper, authors generalize the two equity principles in order to be able to rank transfers among arbitrary many pairs of rich and poor. This paper describes the restrictions for the existence of binary relations which pemit consistent pair wise ranking of utility stream satisfying the equity principles.

Philosophy for Lunch: "Injustice and Power?"
11/12/2020

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, November 19, 2020 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:

Injustice and Power P4L


What is the mindset of a very powerful person who flaunts society’s political and moral norms? Perhaps this kind of person is thinking that if you have enough power, injustice pays. In the first book of Plato's Republic, he gives us the character Thrasymachus, who argues that justice is for suckers: "A just man always gets less than an unjust one.... Injustice, if it is on a large enough scale, is stronger, freer, and more masterly than justice" (343–344). Importantly, Plato devotes the rest of the Republic to refuting this cynical view. In light of today's politics, it may be instructive to look back at Plato's insightful analysis of Thrasymachus. At this P4L, we will read and discuss passages from Book One, in an attempt to understand Thrasymachus's assumptions and reasoning.


Join the Zoom here.


What is P4L?
Students, professors, and other philosophy enthusiasts close-read and discuss a few great passages of philosophy.

Philosophy for Lunch: What is Enlightment?
11/6/2020

Event Date(s) / Time: Thursday, November 12, 2020 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Details:


In December of 1784, the philosopher Immanuel Kant published an article in a journal with the opening line: "Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-incurred immaturity." The article went on to become one of the most influential accounts of the values of the Enlightenment. Therein, Kant urges us to have the 'courage to use our own reason' and he suggests that what prevents us from thinking for ourselves is laziness and a lack of courage. In this week's Philosophy for Lunch, we will read passages from Kant's famous text in order to understand more about enlightenment and what we need to do to achieve it, as individuals and as a community.

Featuring



Kellie Brown, EdD is Chair of the Music Department at Milligan University, where she is a professor of music and the conductor of the Milligan Orchestra.  Dr. Brown's book, The Sound of Hope: Music as Solace, Resistance, and Salvation during the Holocaust & World War II, was released in 2020.  The Washington Post declared that she “…succeeded admirably in bringing together in one volume so much important research."
