Workshop: Cognitive science and the revival of pragmatism

From 23 to June 24, 2011
ECNU
Workshop is the kick off meeting of Research Operation 1 about the relations between contemporary cognitive science and the pragmatist perspective and tradition.
This research operation is part of a broader scope research program, The Knowledge and Action Lab (KAL), dedicated to the present state of the Pragmatism versus Intellectualism controversy.
The Workshop adopts an exploratory and open perspective. Its goal is to examine a variety of themes of potential relevance for clarifying the relation between the contemporary study of cognition and the idea of pragmatism. Contributions address not only the question of a possible pragmatist turn of cognitive science, but also developments in the cognitive field, in the pragmatist tradition (such as philosophical neo-pragmatism) or in studies of the history of pragmatism that are of direct interest for analyzing this relation.

Ideogram and the Cognitive Character of Chinese Culture

On June 22, 2011
Salle des Thèses, Monod Campus, ENS de Lyon

Lecture by Professor PAN Derong (ECNU, Philosophy), June 22, 5pm, Salle des Thèses, Monod Campus "Ideogram and the Cognitive Character of Chinese Culture"

Within the framework of the Joint Research Institute for Science and Society (JoRISS), Professors Jean-Michel ROY and YU Zhenhua who head the KAL (Knowledge & Action Lab) research operation organized a public lecture for this new structure which is aimed at developing research collaboration between the ENS de Lyon, the ECNU at Shanghai and the CNRS. The lecture took place in the Salle des Thèses of the Jacques Monod site. It was followed by a friendly reception.
Professor PAN Derong, Director of the Philosophy Department of the ECNU at Shanghai and Associate Professor at the University of Luzern (German speaking), can be congratulated on his performance in giving a lecture in English of the theme:
"Ideogram and the Cognitive Character of Chinese Culture".
The lecture simultaneously approached ideograms from the perspective of their cognitive mechanisms and the hermeneutic perspective in order to see how messages are perceived according to their source - discourse, reading or lesson - and to their vector - alphabet-based or ideogram-based written text. The public included students and researchers from the ECNU as well as researchers form the ENS de Lyon, the CNRS and other higher education and research institutions in Lyon.
Professor PAN Derong also participated in the Cognitive Science & the revival of pragmatism workshop organized by the KAL on June 23rd and 24th and in which Professors YU Zhenhua and LI Quanmin from the ECNU also took part.

The expansion of epistemology: The metaphysical vs The pragmatic approach

On June 9, 2011, 10h30-12h30
Salle F 05, Campus Descartes, ENS de Lyon
Conference of Professor YU Zhenhua (ECNU, Philosophy)
"In the perspective of world philosophy, one phenomenon of the 20th century is quite intriguing. In China as well in the West, there were a group of philosophers who were not happy with the traditional conception of epistemology. They thought that traditional epistemology was too narrow-minded and argued that the scope of epistemology should be expanded. The Chinese way of expanding epistemology might be called the metaphysical approach and the Western way the pragmatic approach. In this talk, I will first of all give an outline of both approaches, and then try to demonstrate that a substantial dialogue can be created between them. By focusing on the problem of the articulation of what we know, I will make the metaphysical approach and the practical approach engage each other and thus prove to be mutually complementary."

A specialist of pragmatics and cognition, Anne Reboul is a senior CNRS researcher, heading the L2C2 Research Unit at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Lyon (http://l2c2.isc.cnrs.fr/fr/members/annreboul/). She is currently visiting the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies (http://www.aa.tufs.ac.jp/en/staff/list2). Her talk is essentially involved with topics of KAL research operation 1 but bears also on those of Research operations 2 (neopragmatism). She will offer a critical analysis of the hotly debated notion of extended cognition.

Seminar "Découvrir Dewey, II"

From January 30 to April 11, 2011
Seminar sessions: Jan 31, Feb. 7, Feb 21, March 14, March 28, April 11For location and time information, see seminar poster.
Université Lumière Lyon 2 & Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3
In the context of Research Operation 3 dedicated to the history of pragmatist thinking and its confrontation with similarly oriented intellectual traditions, the KAL project hosts a seminar dedicated to pragmatist thinker John Dewey organized by KAL members Stéphane Madelrieux (Philosophy, Institut de Recherches Philosophiques of Lyon, Lyon III University) and Emmanuel Renault (Lyon ENS).
The goal of this seminar is to contribute to a better knowledge of the American philosopher John Dewey (1859-1952) through the translation and critical analysis of one of its works: The Influence of Darwin on Philosophy and Other Essays (1910). Never translated into French before and comprizing eleven essays, this book is strictly contemporary with the expansion of pragmatism, that Dewey saw as an element of a borader movement of "intelectual reocnstruction". As suggested by its very title, Dewey emphasizes the historical conditions that make such a reconstruction necessary if one refuses to address present day problems of with conceptual tools of the past.

The seminar follows up on the work carried out in 2009-2010, that was dedicated to Esaays I to IV. The first two hours of each session are devoted to translation, and the next two ones to commentary.

Seminar for the Epistemology of Cognitive Science (CESC): Embodied approaches to cognitive science

On December 16, 2010
Lyon
Presentation by KAL member HE Jing in the Seminar for the Epistemology of Cognitive Science (CESC): Embodied approaches to cognitive science.
As part of KAL research operation 1 on cognitive pragmatism, Prof. HE made a presentation in the Lyon CESC Seminar for the Epistemology of Cognitive Science dedicated in 2010-2011 to the emerging notion of a non Cartesian cognitive science.
Cognitive pragmatism is a key facet of this emerging notion and it is also closely linked in particular with the correlated notion of embodied cognitive science on which  Prof. HE specifically focused her presentation. She offered a personal analysis and assessment of the multiplicity of approaches gathered under this later label, with the aim of clarifying this key transformation of the cognitive field and its significance for the issue of the primacy of action.

International Workshop : What is it like to be schizophrenic? (KAL)

From 13 to 14 December, 2010
ENS de Lyon, Center for the Epistemology of Cognitive Science (CESC)

The Kal project collaborated with this international workshop held the Lyon ENS on December 13-14, 2010. Co-organized by Jean-Michel Roy, who delivered the opening talk, it was also attended by HE Jing from ECNU as an invited discussant. The topic of the workshop, the possibility of a rigorous capture of the content of schizophrenic experience that makes it amenable to scientific explanation, is closely linked with the problem of cognitive pragmatism that constitutes the object of KAL research operation 1. A key problem about schizophrenia is indeed the pathological experience of action of the schizophrenic patient and its possible teachings about the nature and role of action in cognition.
