Title: Hospitality as the Acceptance of the Others: Recasting the Ethics of Deconstruction

Abstract:
Jacques Derrida provides a novel notion of hospitality as an ethics of deconstruction. This emerges from his textual reading of Emmanuel Lévinas’ works. For Derrida, hospitality consists of the acceptance of the other, while addressing the hospitable welcome. It is a necessary relation to the other with an absolute hospitality as the obligation to welcome the other without conditions. Although this absolute hospitality is unconditional, but hospitality must be conditioned by a responsible response to all condition upon it. This makes the ethics of hospitality possible, when it entails the acceptance of the other.

Title: Husserl, Lebenswelt, Culture

This paper concerns the rather difficult concept of the life-world (lebensewelt) that Husserl developed in some length in the Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology. I wish to understand in these remarks the cultural world in terms of the life-world. Husserl primarily develops the life world concept in relation to a science-world and a mathematics-world. His main point in this regard indicates that the scientific-mathematical process is a regional vocation that works itself out against a pre-given world-structure wherein common-life is lived out:

Science is a human spiritual accomplishment which presupposes as its point of departure, both historically and for each new student, the intuitive surrounding world of life, pre-given as existing for all in common.

The stress is on singularity positing a unitary life-world shared by all in common. Under the sign of singularity, worlds are not yet emergent in multiples wherein cultures are situated. Values in general, motivated by cultural forms, inclusive but not exhausted by science-mathematics, are enabled by the life-world against which their structures are constituted. The argument here is this: as a matter of fact, cultures are plural, thus if life-world is conceived under the sign of singularity, it must be pre-given to values as such and not just to scientific value alone, assuming that values are taken to be co-extensive with culture. World-regions—one Galilean another Mahlerian (as examples)—are governed by their own teleologies and are framed against the original structure of the unitary life-world. Just as the life-world (in David Carr’s translation) is the “meaning-fundament” of the natural science so is it of musical expressions, indeed any cultural expression whatsoever. According to this construal, plurality of worlds presupposes the pre-given (vorgegeben) structure of the singular lifeworld. Running against such a construal Føllesdal observes that in the earlier lectures on Phänomenologische Psychologie (1925), Husserl appears to endorse the plurality of life-worlds:

We do not share the same life-world with all people, not all people “in the world” have in common with us all objects which make up our life-world and which determine our personal activity and striving even when they come into actual association with us, as they always can (to the extent that, if they are not present, we come to them and they to us).

Thus the question: are there many life worlds, each naming a particular cultural horizon, or is the life-world singular? I wish to address this question first and then proceed to deploy the obtained result to provide the grounding for an ethics of cosmopolitanism.

Tagore先生の「自己の現象学」に関するセミナーのお知らせ

「自己の現象学」に関するセミナーが行われますので、学部生・院生問わず奮ってご参加ください。
この講義はシラバス上の規定の授業ではありませんので、単位は取得できません。

講師  Tagore先生 (シンガポール国立大学)
日時  月曜・木曜2限(7/9,12 10:30-12:00)
場所  第8演習室(総合研究2号館1階東側)

概要:

Teaching Seminar 1 (9th July 10:30-12:00):

I propose to show how Husserl worked out the implications of the philosophies of Descartes, Hume, and Kant to work out his phenomenologically motivated transcendental account of self.

Teaching Seminar 2 (12th July 10:30-12:00):

I propose to show how Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty used Husserl as the background to their effort at dismantling transcendental phenomenology to assemble an phenomenological-existential account of self.

In both these teaching seminars the effort will be to disclose varied phenomenological conceptions of self/subjectivity.

Title: Vagueness in the Frankfurt’s Cases

Abstract: In his 1969 paper, by the so-called “Frankfurt’s Cases,” Harry Frankfurt argues against the Principle of Alternative Possibilities, which states that a person is morally responsible for what he has done only if he could have done otherwise. However, it is still controversial whether the Principle of Alternative Possibilities is invalidated by those Frankfurt-style cases, for some philosophers have some doubts about the plausibility of Frankfurt-style cases. In the present paper, I will argue that, firstly, while generalizing Frankfurt-style cases, it will be clear that we can easily generate a Frankfurt-style case by satisfying two conditions, i.e. the moral responsibility condition and no alternative possibility condition. Secondly, I will argue that, if one could argue plausibly that there be some substantial connection between the responsibility condition and the failure of no alternative possibility condition, then the Principle of Alternative Possibilities would be invalidated. In the end, I will argue that the real task for us is not to generate (or disarm) new Frankfurt-style cases but to accept the vagueness of the concept of alternative possibility and/or that of moral responsibility.

Mark Siderits教授(イリノイ州立大学)講演会のお知らせ

イリノイ州立大学名誉教授Mark Siderits先生をお招きして講演会を開催いたしますので、どうぞお越しください。事前登録などは不要です。

日時:5月16日(水) 18:00-19:30
場所:京都大学文学部本館1階会議室(https://www.kyoto-u.ac.jp/en/access/main-campus-map.html のNo.8の建物)

タイトル:Vagueness and Emptiness
アブストラクト:Buddhists agree that the ordinary objects of our folk ontology are empty or devoid of intrinsic nature, and so not strictly speaking real. One possible way of supporting this claim is by appealing to phenomena connected to vagueness, such as sorites difficulties. I explore several different approaches to solving sorites difficulties, and propose an epistemic approach as the best way to support Buddhist ontological scruples.
