Version imprimable fontsizeup fontsizedown

L’université de Provence annonce le troisième workshop des workshop de mars à juin 2009 : "Social commitments", les 24, 25 et 26 juin 2009.

The philosophy of the social sciences can first address its own agenda, in an almost autonomous way. Second, it can favor its links with the more general agenda of the philosophy of sciences. Third, it can focus on the issues of the social sciences themselves (sociology, economics, ethnology, history, etc.). In the first two cases, philosophers meet philosophers ; in the third one, philosophers meet the specialists of the social sciences. The three workshops organized by theUniversity of Provence (Aix-Marseille I), in March and June 2009, within the context of a program of invited professors at the Department of Sociology, follow this third path.

The third workshop (June 24-25-26) is focused on the concept of social commitment. The notion of commitment has been addressed in many ways in the contemporary social sciences, from Amartya Sen’s “commitment” to Thomas Schelling’s and Jon Elster’s “pre-commitment” to Margaret Gilbert’s “joint commitment”. The keynote speaker of the present workshop is Margaret Gilbert.
