CONTEMPORARY FRENCH PHILOSOPHY: STRUCTURE AND SYSTEM I
COD Workload Description
61610-03 45 The STRUCTURE AND SYTEMS seminars are intended to bring together two areas of philosophical research which had been unrelated and diverging up until now: mathematical ontology and biolinguistics. Both are recent expressions of structuralism (with its variables) and scientific logicism (and its ramifications in analytical philosophy and hermeneutics). In this regard, chances are that the current scenario of intense research on the brain, language and "consciousness" be appropriate to bring these two areas together under a formal perspective. On that line, the principle of explanatory adequacy will be helpful in addressing the epistemological and phenomenological models through which our studies have shown a connection. Alain Badiou's philosophical system, Noam Chomsky's biolonguistic program and Michel Foucault's systems of thought have been adopted as references. Contemporary French philosophy presents itself as the main context, but the scope of the structural method of analysis will be the focus of the course, as it had been initially addressed in the 1950s, in order to analyze the methodological and ontological coherence of the projects of systematization of the philosophy of mind, subjectivity and language.

CONTEMPORARY FRENCH PHILOSOPHY: STRUCTURE AND SYSTEM II
COD Workload Description
61622-03 45 Following the analysis of systematic pretension of philosophy in Alain Badiou, this course will address, in light of Being and Event I (EE), the theory of the conditions of philosophy, especially the conditions of poems ("art", in Being and event II (LM)) and love. Aligned with the conditions of the politics of emancipation and mathematics (or "science" in LM), the prior existence of conditions in philosophy, will make our methodological decisions in favor of a "platonic gesture" in the system. The conditions are the practices where truths are produced; what elucidates them are the practices that collectively lead us to see the means through which the fundamental principles of being and existence are shown. We take our chances on the conclusions and consequences of Badiou's system as we state that general ontology is intrinsic and inherent to the conditions. His articulation is an idealization, since ontology rewrites what is intrinsically common to conditions. However, it is not about separating a set of already existing rules through the existence of these conditions, but establishing them through the embarrassing situations and transformations that they, and only they, can provide us with, since these are the dynamics that have shown the subjective emergences. The problem is to try to understand a differential subject, or a "generic" one, in poetry/art and love. The subject in question is distributed by an event which rose him since, by definition, the differential subject is not shown in terms of the state of its current situation. The subject is shown as a local possibility, its form may be unknown, whereas its logic lies within a set of unconscious criteria. Therefore, generally speaking, we intend to understand the dimension of the regulation of the categories of differential thinking more fully and, in a punctual way, the relationship between the structure and the specific form of the truths produced by this generic subjective entity inserted in the existential and discursive contexts of art and love.

CONTEMPORARY FRENCH PHILOSOPHY: STRUCTURE AND SYSTEM III
COD Workload Description
61654-03 45 Thirty years following the death of Michel Foucault, the works of the author of Words and Things have been incessantly classified, edited, deconstructed, refuted, relativized and alleviated, not to mention when it had been almost ignored. However, his work is still a model for several orientations of critical thought and scientific research. His externalist nominalism puts the projects of ontological justification of thinking into question; his historicism not only shows the conscience and the enunciations of the truth but also the several effects of a conceptual regime submersed into radical finiteness, which shows the difficulty in seeing the forms of enunciation of unconscious mental states and of the indiscernible characteristics of the subjectivization of events; and his contribution to the history of philosophy shares the theoretical practice between a science of discourse and an ethics in line with the emergence of truth. These orientations make Foucault's works a challenge for the emergence of a theory still in seek of its identity in detriment of humanist philosophy. Before anything, this theory is intended for the institutional proposals whose goal is to neutralize the critical power that philosophy imposes on the future of science and its application to biotechnological life, by absorption. Thus, we will be addressing Foucault and his predecessors.

COD Workload Description
3151A-03 45 Among the philosophies that draw insights from French epistemology, before the onset of mathematical ontology in Alain Badious's system, there used to be the philosophy of events and multiplicity by Gilles Deleuze. The transformations brought forth by Badiou on Deleuze's philosophy mark a decisive moment in the context of the consolidation of a critical French ontology at the end of the 20th century, one that is based on a refutation of Heidegger's fundamental ontology. This seminar is intended to assess Deleuze's philosophy by contesting and making use of Badiou's systems.

CONTEMPORARY FRENCH PHILOSOPHY: STRUCTURE AND SYSTEM V
COD Workload Description
3151L-03 45 This graduate seminar is intended to analyze the different schools of French philosophy, since Bergson up to the current times. It will be particularly focused on Alain Badiou's philosophy when it comes to the new concepts of a system. Based on Badiou's philosophy, the universal project of philosophy will be re-configured, with an analysis of the theory according to the ontology of mathematics, and the science of the appearance and existence organized according the scientific worlds based in the logic systems created in the beginning of the 20th century. In this context, we will be addressing the structuralist investigations on the theory of subjectivity (post-Lacanian); of political thought of emancipation; of the most adequate ethics to be in line with a political view that meets a form of truth; of the issue of secular societies and secularism; and the theory of temporality and history behind the logics of transformation.

CONTEMPORARY FRENCH PHILOSOPHY: STRUCTURE AND SYSTEM VI
COD Workload Description
71506-03 45 In 2013 and 2014, I put together, translated and published two articles that looked at the issue of ontology and the system of current French philosophy, and a question arose: is there a spirit of system in contemporary French philosophy? The concept of system is complex according to French philosophy. Instead of seeking a fixed justification of the major categories of ontology, French philosophy usually includes a theory of the subject on behalf of the variations of history and its rationalization. For decades, French philosophy has brought new insights into the understanding of the Hegelian system and the Marx's science of history. Since the 1980s, in response to the method of structural analysis, several other systems came to be considered in order to provide an extended and more radical theory of subjectivity than the one en vogue during the modern period of philosophical production. In order to mark this transformation in the field of research, we will start with one of the fundamental systems of the 18th century, still not very popular in Brazil, the new system of nature of G. Leibniz. Then, we will move on to the Capital system, a major system of late modern philosophy, focusing on works by David Harvey and Michael Heinrich, issue 1. We will go on to address other critical areas: both the theory of Universal Grammar by Noam Chomsky and eliminative materialism by Paul Churchland as philosophical systems in order to show their respective underlying ontology.

CONTEMPORARY FRENCH PHILOSOPHY: STRUCTURE AND SYSTEM VII
COD Workload Description
71525-03 45 In 2006, Alain Badiou published Logique des mondes, whose subheading is L¿Être et I¿événement 2. The book has been expanding the philosophical system beyond the project of ontology (L¿Être et I¿événement, 1988); beyond the theory on the historical conditions that gave rise to instances of differential subjects and in which the indiscernible truths are produced (Manifeste pour la philosophie, 1989; Conditions, ,1992); beyond ethics integrated to ontology (Ética. Ensaio sobre a consciência do mal, 1991); and beyond the several antiphilosophy theories (Saint Paul, ou la fundation de I¿universel, 1997). With major consequences, Logique des mondes represents a new theory of appearance of objective phenomena, on which new concepts of object, body, change and life are grounded. Therefore, this work represents the first structuralist action in view of a new phenomenology.

Special attention will be given to the relationship between Mathematics and Philosophy which has been discussed in a recent book by Ian Hacking, Why is there Philosophy of Mathematics at all? (Cambrige UP, 2014).

The Seminar intends to address, based on primary and secondary materials by E. Levinas and F. Kafka, a philosophical and literary group of signifiers, the possibility of reconstruction, since the concept of language being a form of production as opposed to the produced sentences, of the ethical / (meta)-phenomenological issue of human dignity. Students will have access to additional resources in order to prepare for discussions, on top of a classical bibliography.

Ethics and Contemporary Issues: Philosophical Criticism to Violence IV
COD Workload Description
3150X-03 15 The question" What does it mean to work through the past " gets us to reflect upon things. It originates from a buzzword that has recently taken on quite a strange meaning. In this sense, working through the past does not mean to working through it per se, as one would be clearly aware of the consequences of doing so. We actually intend to bury the past and maybe wipe it out of our memories, as Adorno says in the beginning of his famous" What does it mean to work through the past ". This is quite a relevant issue. Philosophy and historical memory have to be hand in hand at all times because there is no Philosophy at a given time without the consideration of the facts and issues that preceded it and that get people to reflect upon things. When we dissociate one from the other, there are multiple expressions of violence, as History itself teaches us. Because of that, criticizing the difficulty in bringing "historical memory" to "clear consciousness" begins with criticism to violence, as it is understood by exponential authors of contemporary thought. The Seminar, open to all students, will address the comprehension of the good points that are common to criticism to violence in the works of Franz Rosenzweig, Theodor Adorno, Walter Benjamin and Emmanuel Levinas.

Rosenzweig and "Alterity and Transcendence", by E. Levinas, relying on the opinions made by commentators. The idea is to justify the theories that inspire the Seminar's goals, as the establishment of ethical rationality beyond totality is a possibility of the establishment of a critical and philosophical analysis of the current notion of "human dignity" today.

Within the limits of philosophical rationality, Khôra remains as a fertilizing mystery of the reflection of any given pre-determined scheme of the understanding of reality. Once an abyss of thought and witness of the inaccessibility of enunciation discourse, Khôra makes unusual predictions of the future yet to come.

Ethics and Contemporary Issues: Philosophical Critique to Violence VII
COD Workload Description
71522-03 45 Roughly speaking, the XX century is characterized as a period of extreme unprecedented historical and cultural tensions in Western civilization, in several forms of approach. These tensions are present, either implicitly or explicitly, in the works of the major philosophers of that century; such works become the very particular response to the questions on time. In this sense, Rosenzweig's and Levinas' philosophical works are highly eloquent, as they become very sharp forms of philosophical interpretation of an epoch. This course is intended to investigate, in view of "ethics", "language", "otherness" and "temporality", aspects that are especially relevant of these scholars' works, as they provide an interpretation of the profound crisis of civilization we are going through and clarify the new philosophical dimensions pointed by their respective thoughts.

COD Workload Description
21530-03 45 This course will discuss the main aspects of Alvin Plantinga's “externalism in its own right". In his trilogy of epistemology, he claimed, and was acclaimed by doing so, a conception of externalism as directly opposed to internalism, in which, by looking at the former, and somehow to the latter, only those things that an individual has a high level of internal cognitive access may contribute to the epistemic character of beliefs. At first, it was tempting to think that externalism in its own right would be somehow similar to a form of externalism known as "reliabilism" - especially in the third condition of warrant in its own right - , to the point that it was named "reliabilism plus" by Alston, for not being completely different from reliabilism, but for featuring extra requirements. The “extras” themselves, who would be happy with the first and second conditions, according to Plantinga, try to remedy visible discrepancies, in possible situations, as one can find reliabilism without warrant.

COD Workload Description
61620-03 45 "The only reason why I will be, at my own free-will, subjected to that normative system, which is good for everyone, then it should be good for me, is that it will always be better for me than any other normative system or a system that would harm me. Thus, a moral will not be rooted, and even a legal system would be negotiable, rather than rooted" (Ernst Tugendhat). The gap that Tugendhat finds here is ultimately connected to the fact that he wants to make "good" clear by only showing the duties, since the duties would only be founded on the social mechanisms through which one cannot clearly determine as "personal interests" of individuals in the sense of their "wellness" and the wellness of those one would be affectively related.
