September 23, 2022: Sam Baron: Causation and spacetime

MELT Talk 2022. Room Piero Martinetti, Icehouse Courtyard, first floor, Via Festa del Perdono, 7, Milan. H. 15:00-17:00. n the mid 20th century, a group of theorems showed that much of the metric structure of general relativity could be recovered from causal structure. This led a number of philosophers to defend a causal theory of spacetime, in which spatiotemporal relations were reduced to causal relations. The causal theory met with fierce opposition by the likes of Earman and Smart, and was largely abandoned within philosophy. In physics, however, the story is different: the theorems that motivated the causal theory of spacetime were developed into an approach to quantum gravity. Philosophy, it seems, abandoned the causal theory of spacetime too early. In this talk, I will thus return to the causal theory of spacetime and show that there is at least one version of the view that endures philosophical scrutiny.

History and philosophy of cosmology are at the center of the international meeting organized by the Proteus project of the Department of Philosophy "Piero Martinetti". Lecturers, doctoral students and researchers will discuss the different disciplinary areas of expertise, from cosmology to the philosophy of physics, from the history of ancient and modern astronomy to archeo-astronomy, expanding the current debate on quantum cosmology and proposing new research approaches. Room Crociera alta di Studi Umanistici.

1st BRIO Scientific Meeting Logo

September 17, 2022: Bias, Risk and Opacity in AI. 1st Research Meeting

Meeting internazionale del progetto Bias, Risk and Opacity in AI. The BRIO project aims at developing design criteria for Trustworthy AI (TAI) based on philosophical analyses of transparency, bias and risk combined with their formalisation and technical implementation for a range of platforms, including both supervised and unsupervised learning. This first event will be the occasion to present some initial results by the units and offer the possibility to young researchers (PhDs and Postdocs) both internal and external to the project to present their research. Sala Malliani, via Festa del Perdono, 7, Milano. Orario: 10:00-17:00.

Giorgio De Chirico, Il Grande Metafisico

September 6-7, 2022: Number of Things - International conference

How are objects (and processes) individuated and counted? This question raises important issues from contemporary debates often discussed under headings such as individuation, identity and indeterminism. The conference will address the question from multiple perspectives including metaphysics, the philosophy of science, and the philosophy of physics (and QM in particular), with the aim of creating a dialogue across these differing perspectives. Venue: Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy, Sala Napoleonica, Via Sant'Antonio 12.

ESPP & SPP 2022 Logo

July 19-22, 2022: ESPP & SPP 2022 Joint Conference

This year, from 19-22 July, the Department of Philosophy of the University of Milan will host the 3rd Joint Conference of the European Society for Philosophy and Psychology (ESPP) and its North American partner, the Society for Philosophy and Psychology (SPP). The ESPP (founded in 1992) and the SPP (founded in 1974) are devoted to the furtherance of enquiry relating jointly to the fields of philosophy, psychology, neuroscience and related disciplines. By bringing leading researchers from these fields every year together at their annual conferences in Europe and in North America respectively, the ESPP and the SPP play a key role in facilitating interdisciplinary research in Europe and North America. As such, they also provide an important platform for Phd students, postdocs and researchers at all levels to present and discuss the latest research. This year marks a special year insofar as the ESPP and the SPP will meet together for just their third joint conference, and the first since 2011. Having been selected to host this event, the Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan is looking forward to welcoming researchers from around the world and to engaging in stimulating discussions of the latest research.
