Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course focuses upon a specific text, Joseph Rouse’s forthcoming book Articulating the World: Conceptual Understanding and the Scientific Image (University of Chicago Press). This challenging, wide-ranging, and important book seeks to show how our ability to understand the world scientifically can itself be integrated into the scientifically described world, as a natural phenomenon. Amongst other things, Rouse’s discussion addresses normativity and conceptual understanding, evolutionary biology and niche construction, language and discursive practice, the scientific and manifest images, experiment, laws and necessity, and the nature of objectivity. In the process, he engages with the work of philosophers including Davidson, Dreyfus, Brandom, Haugeland, McDowell, and Sellars. The course will subject Rouse’s text to a close critical reading.

The only essential reading for this course is Rouse’s book manuscript, which will be made available to students immediately after the first seminar. The relevant chapter should then be read before each of the remaining seminars.
