Drahí kolegovia, absolventi, študenti!

Tento rok (25. marca) uplynulo 25 rokov od znovuobnovenia Trnavskej univerzity v Trnave. Ako už býva dobrým zvykom, tak, ako aj v minulých rokoch, aj teraz pri príležitosti výročia prvej prednášky na univerzite (samozrejme, že z filozofie) plánujeme tradičné alumni stretnutie absolventov Filozofie a priaznivcov školy (tentokrát aj s oslovením všetkých profesorov, docentov a kantorov pôsobiacich na našej Alma mater počas jej existencie). Viacerí už sľúbili účasť. Zarezervujte si preto, prosím, sobotu 11. novembra na stretnutie so svojimi konškolákmi, ale aj s pedagógmi, ktorí vás sprevádzali počas vášho štúdia. Tešíme sa na vás a pripravujeme aj malé prekvapenie.


Nové V akademickom roku 2018/2019 rozširujeme možnosť štúdia na našej fakulte o tri akreditované študijné programy: (1) Magisterské štúdium odboru Cognitive studies (denná forma, dĺžka štúdia 4 semestre, jazyk anglický, viac informácií;  (2) Bakalárske štúdium odboru Philosophy (denná forma, dĺžka štúdia  6 semestrov); (3) PhD. štúdium odboru Systematická filozofia, denná forma, jazyk slovenský.

"Štúdium na katedre filozofie mi umožnilo na akademickej úrovni pokračovať v mojej celoživotnej záľube – filozofii. Okrem získania vedomostí v systematickej filozofii mi štúdium umožnilo rozvinúť viaceré predpoklady mojej budúcej profesie – intelektuálny rozhľad, kritické a tvorivé myslenie a schopnosť jasne a zreteľne formulovať svoje myšlienky (či už verbálne alebo písanou formou). Štúdium na katedre filozofie odporúčam každému, kto túži po vzdelaní získanom na vysoko profesionálnej a zároveň z pohľadu rozvoja tvorivosti – obzvlášť slobodnej katedre." (Milan Vrbovský, absolvent štúdia filozofie, 2006; absolvent doktorandského štúdia systematickej filozofie, 2014; diplomat, Ministerstvo zahraničných vecí a európskych záležitostí)



V roku 2016 sme na Katedre filozofie privítali vzácnych hostí: Profesora Semira Zekiho z University College London, profesora Dana Zahaviho a Dr. Thomasa Szanto z univerzity v Kodani, Dr. Franka Zenkera z univerzity v Lunde a profesora Davida Iana Perretta zo škótskej univerzity v St. Andrews.

The neurology of art


Since the late 19th century, neurology has played a critical role in advancing our understanding of large-scale human behavioral systems that underpin perception, language, emotions and attention. Its role in aesthetics, however, has been limited. The appropriate questions are still being defined, even as the appropriate methods and proper frameworks are being established. One striking observation is that brain damage can sometimes paradoxically facilitate art. What do we make of this peculiar phenomenon? I will review qualitative observations on how neurological disease changes and sometimes “improve” art production. I will also discuss quantitative methods assessing attributes of artwork that allow us to systematically characterize the effects of brain damage on the production, perception, and evaluation of artwork. These qualitative and quantitative observations suggest a different way to think about brain-behavior relationships.

Cognitive Rethinking of Beauty: Uniting the Philosophy and CogSci
Miesto: 3P1

5-th International workshop on Cognitive Aspects of Aesthetic Experience


Main lecture: Prof. Anjan Chatterjee, MD., FAAN (The University of Pennsylvania)


The aesthetic brain


In the 19th Century Gustav Fechner, the father of empirical aesthetics, had three fundamental insights relevant to contemporary neuroaesthetics. Properties of the world were systematically related to properties of the mind. Aesthetics could be an empirical science, or “an aesthetics from below.” Finally, in addition to outer psychophysics, he speculated that there had to be an inner psychophysics. In this talk, I will offer a framework from which neuroscientists might decompose aesthetic experiences and frame questions experimentally. Fundamental to aesthetic experiences are the interactions between sensori-motor, emotional-valuation, and meaning-knowledge systems. I will discuss findings from cognitive neuroscience that reveal neural structures and networks engaged in our response to beauty and in other aesthetic encounters. Central to this enterprise is the goal of uncovering the biology of aesthetic experiences and how these experiences influence our interactions in the world.

Some thoughts on the evolution of art


Two views dominate discussions about the evolution of art. One view is that art emerges as an epiphenomenal accident of our large brains, overflowing from other complex cognitive abilities. The alternate view is that art represents a fundamental human instinct. Art behavior is regarded as a “costly display” indicating fitness or as behaviors that binds communities together. The first view emphasizes art’s cultural underpinnings, its tremendous variety, its local expression, and its “art for art’s sake” property. The second view emphasizes art’s universality across the world and as far back in time as we can record. Neither view is completely satisfying. We need a third way that acknowledges art’s diversity as well as it universality. I will review the neuroscience of art and relate it to the evolution of a particular bird song, that of the Bengalese finch. The neural organization of the finch’s song is analogous to what we know about human neural organization of perception and production of art and offers a novel way of thinking about art and its adaptive significance.

Prof. Oleksiy Polunin (Department of Psychology, Kyiv National University of Trade and Economics, Johan Skytte Institute, the University of Tartu, Estonia): 

Time flow in human mind: from the psychological experiments to the philosophical reflections.

The talk is devoted to the problem of mental representation of time. It claims that a human cognitive system develops multiple representations of time flow. This idea is supported by the list of arguments from the different disciplines – behavioral economics, linguistics, and cultural studies. Moreover, based on the psychological studies on the role of cognitive time-representation in decision making (Polunin, 2009-2016), author highlights the empirical arguments for the mind\\\'s ability to develop a multitude of different representations of time flow. Each of the cognitive representations of time flow has its specific features and accordingly impacts on the object’s representation over time. Thus one and the same object can show different variations in subjective value along one and the same time distance. This contributes to variability of human behavior, namely to the variability of outcomes in decision making. In general, such multiplicity of time representations challenges the conventional singularity of mental time flow. This raises the question about a re-conceptualization of the time category. A transition from the conventional singularity of time flow to the multiplicity of cognitive representations of time points to a kind of paradigm shift. As consequence such re-conceptualization of time may fruitfully impact on modelling of causality, on further development of the theories of explanation, and on temporal logic.
