EXRE Colloquium: Arturs Logins (Geneva) “Lotteries, Beliefs, and Emotions: A Conjecture About Being Confident and the Lottery Paradox”

Miloud Belkoniene Time: 17:15 - 19:00

Abstract: A common assumption within the Lottery Paradox debate isthat we are somehow confused about epistemic justification and, hence, should revise our intuitive, but a paradox-generating understanding of it. This paperrevisits that assumption. The suggestion is that the paradox stems more specificallyfrom our confusion about justification of beliefs, not justification toutcourt, since there is no Lottery Paradox in the case of justified emotions andother non-belief states. A conjecture as to what exactly might be problematic orconfusion inducing in our ordinary…

EXRE Colloquium: Simon Evnine (Miami) “Expressive Limitations on Patients in Psychoanalysis: A View from the Philosophy of Language”

Miloud Belkoniene Time: 17:15 - 19:00

Abstract:Psychoanalysis is usually thought of as a context in which people who are patients have the maximum amount of expressive freedom. One way of thinking of the fundamental rule of psychoanalysis, the injunction to free association, is as the throwing off limitations on self-expression. But I argue that, somewhat surprisingly, psychoanalysis in general, and free association in particular, bring their own forms of expressive limitations. I consider a few different ways of understanding free association through the lenses of speech…

EXRE Colloquium: Daniel Gregory (Tübingen) “A Partial Solution to Dream Skepticism”

Miloud Belkoniene Time: 17:15 - 19:00

I will suggest that, if my argument is successful, it may also open up a path for dealing with…
