Call for Papers: Junior Scholar Workshop on “Perception, Knowledge, and Assimilation”

  ʻAll humans naturally strive for knowledgeʼ, Aristotle famously states at the beginning of his Metaphysics. Yet philosophers have wondered ever since what it means to know something and how we can actually acquire knowledge. Can we know anything at all, and if so, where does this knowledge come from? Do we need to have sensory information first and do we have to become like the things we want to know? In the history of philosophy, diferent answers have been given to these and related questions and in this workshop we would like to discuss some of them, especially those by ancient, medieval, and early modern philosophers in the Greek, Latin, and Arabic tradition. The workshop is organised by the  ERC project “Rationality in Perception: Transformations of Mind and Cognition 1250-1550” (University of Helsinki) and the  research programme “Representation and Reality. Historical and Contemporary Perspectives on the Aristotelian Tradition” (University of Gothenburg). The organisers welcome papers by junior scholars (i.e., PhD students and early Post-Docs) on any of the above-mentioned periods and traditions with particular focus on the role of perception and/or assimilation in the process of knowledge acquisition. They will select up to 4 papers (25mins each plus 15mins for discussion) and provide meals and accommodation (for 2 nights) for those invited. Travel costs will be reimbursed up to 500 euros. All participants are welcome to attend at their own cost the international conference “Knowledge as Assimilation” which takes place at the University of Helsinki immediately before the workshop (June 9-11). Those interested in presenting a paper are asked to submit a 300-word abstract (including title, name, affiliation,...
