Event description

Description

The goal of this two-day workshop is to explore the roots of the notion of habit in the phenomenological tradition by looking at its structure and development in relation to intersubjectivity. Among other questions, the conference aims to address the following topics: the relevance of habit for understanding empathy, intersubjectivity, and social dispositions, the relation between habit, temporality, and the sedimentation of experiences, as well as the relation between habit, emotions, and affective recognition. The workshop aims not only at disambiguating and improving current understanding of the role of habit in interpersonal and intergroup encounters. It will also introduce conceptual adjustments that refine and extend standard literature, bringing phenomenology into dialogue with other philosophical traditions.

With contributions by Andrea Altobrando, Lilian Alweiss, Ed Casey, Mark James, James Jardine, Elisa Magri, Timothy Mooney, Jonathan Mitchell, Felix Ó Murchadha, Meline Papazian, Danielle Petherbridge, Italo Testa, Gail Weiss.

The event is generously sponsored by Irish Research Council, The Mind Association, Society for Applied Philosophy, UCD International Centre for Newman Studies, UCD School of Philosophy, and the British Society for the History of Philosophy.
