Åpen gjesteforelesning og internasjonal Wittgenstein-konferanse ved UiS 30. og 31. mai

What Can the Human Sciences Contribute to Phenomenology? Ken Liberman gir en åpen gjesteforelesning fredag 30. mai, kl. 9.15-11.00 i Arne Rettedals hus, rom V-101.

Ken Liberman er professor emeritus ved Department of Sociology, University of Oregon. Han er for tiden gjesteprofessor ved Syddansk Universitet. Han er også gjesteforsker ved Università di Trento i Italia. I sin forelesning vil Liberman bl.a. presentere sentrale temaer innenfor sosialfenomenologi og etnometodologi.

Liberman will review the uses to which social phenomenology and ethnomethodology have put the central themes of Edmund Husserl, and he will offer a summary of the theoretical developments of Alfred Schutz, Aron Gurwitzsch, and their student Harold Garfinkel (who was Liberman's professor) and discuss their relations to Husserl. Following this theoretical summary, Liberman will offer two brief case studies of phenomenological research from an ethnomethodological perspective: games-with-rules and the efforts of professional coffee tasters to specify objectively the taste of coffee. Liberman's thesis is that Husserl's fundamental themes can be advanced productively by undertaking detailed studies of the organization of sense and order of in vivo ordinary activities. Interested persons can read the Conclusion to his recent book, More Studies in Ethnomethodology (SUNY Press, 2013), which is entitled, "Respecifying Husserl's Phenomenology as Situated Worldly Inquiries.

The 5th Symposium of the Nordic Wittgenstein Society Wittgenstein and Phenomenology

University of Stavanger, Norway
May 30-31, 2014

The aim of the symposium is to throw light on the relatively underexplored relations between Wittgenstein's philosophy and the phenomenological tradition. There are a number of interesting points of contacts between the two, consideration of which may contribute to a deeper understanding of each. Not only did Wittgenstein in his middle period see the need for what he called a phenomenology and a phenomenological language, but with its anti-scientistic, anti-speculative and descriptive orientation, his philosophy in general also exhibits several traits characteristic of the phenomenological tradition. An important benefit of gaining a better grasp of these and other convergences is a clearer view of the divergences, and, thereby, of the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two approaches. Relevant questions include: What is the nature and role of the phenomenology that Wittgenstein conceived in the late 1920's and early 1930's, and how does this conception compare to conceptions of phenomenology in the phenomenological tradition? May Wittgenstein's methodological approach in his later philosophy be characterized as phenomenological, in a sense at least partly explicable by reference to traditional forms of phenomenology? How does Wittgenstein's view of logic relate to views of logic within the phenomenological tradition? To what extent, if any, does the later Wittgenstein’s emphasis on practices and lifeforms show affinities to the praxis-orientation of phenomenologists like Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty?

Keynote speakers: Kevin Cahill (University of Bergen), Juliet Floyd (Boston University) and Søren Overgaard (University of Copenhagen)

Organizers: The symposium is organized by the Nordic Wittgenstein Society, in collaboration with the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Stavanger, and the University of Stavanger Research Area Conditions of Normativity. The organizing committee consists of Cato Wittusen (cato.wittusen@uis.no) and Tarjei Mandt Larsen (tarjei.m.larsen@uis.no), both of the University of Stavanger
