Lecture: Center for Humanities Monday Night Lecture Series

Larry McGrath Andrew Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow Wesleyan University "The Brain Hard-Wired in History" When did we come to think of memory, language, and emotion as hard-wired functions of the brain? We will explore the origins of this enduring metaphor by revisiting the explosion of brain research during the 19 th century. Developments in pathological research shined a light on the brains physiology, but psychologists, philosophers, and neurologists looked outside the laboratory to uncover the nature of cerebral matter. Their conversations converged around advances in communications technologies from the telegraph, to the telegram and telephone which furnished a new language for the circuitry of the space between our ears. Yet that language, far from having resolved the problem of the minds relation to the body, instead supported the arguments of materialists and idealists alike. The brains history, as we will see, was not limited to scientific discoveries, but unfolded at the intersections of machinery, selfhood, and society.

Lecture: Center for Humanities Monday Night Lecture Series

Speaker: Deboleena Roy, PhD Associate Professor Emory University Title: Germline Ruptures: Methyl Isocyanate Gas and Transpositions of Life, Death, and Matter in Bhopal Description: December 2014 marked the 30 th anniversary of the gas leak tragedy that occurred at the Union Carbide Corporation's pesticide plant in Bhopal, India. Due to the initial exposure to methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas during the explosion, and due to the further exposure of residual chemical contaminants in the soil and ground water left after the disaster, the status of reproductive health continues to be an issue for both survivors of the Bhopal Tragedy, as well as new generations of local residents. As MIC continues to exert its effects on the reproductive biology of women, men, and children in Bhopal, remarkably, there is a growing market of in vivo human labor developing in this city that depends precisely on the promissory futures made possible by the remaining potential for reproductive value that exists in this very same population and location. By tracing the breakdown of Bhopali survivors' reproductive bodies, their chromosomes, and their bodily fluids due to MIC exposure, and by simultaneously examining the embryonic development of new fetal bodies through genetic materials and proteins provided by surrogate women, my aim is to explore the compound MIC as a catalyst for the placental migration of transnational biopolitics. By conducting an analysis of these entanglements and ruptures - genetic, reproductive, and otherwise-my hope is to contribute to interdisciplinary conversations between feminist science and technology studies (STS), postcolonial STS, and new materialisms.

Lecture: Center for Humanities Monday Night Lecture Series

Michael Silberstein- Full Professor of Philosophy at Elizabethtown College Title: Matter, Mind and Meaning Quantum mechanics and relativity have shown us that the nature of matter is vastly different than materialists and mechanists ever imagined. Even so, trying to accommodate conscious minds into the natural order has led to the hard problem of consciousness and other seemingly insoluble problems. Indeed, even in the field of consciousness studies more and more researchers in both philosophy and the cognitive neuroscience of consciousness are becoming skeptical that any form of materialism or reductionism can resolve the hard problem of consciousness. The two emerging contenders seem to be strong emergence versus some form of panpsychism. Unfortunately, the terms of the ancient debate between strong emergence and some form of inherence such as panpsychism have not changed very much in the last few hundred years. So we allegedly have conscious agents either inexplicably popping out of brains as in strong emergence or we have something intrinsically experience-like hiding at the metaphysical 'center' of fundamental physical entities inexplicably combining to form mature minds.To see the way out, we must begin by noting that with the exception of conscious experience itself, both views share a physicalist or ontologically reductive framework. On both views, with the exception of consciousness itself, the world is just as physicalism or ontological reductionism says it is. Can we do better? Yes, neutral monism of the sort defended by William James and others is the key. The latter holds that the very idea of mind and matter as essentially distinct in the first place, is the root of the hard problem. Neutral monism deflates the hard problem and allows us to reconceive both matter and mind in a harmonious and naturalistic way, all of which puts meaning back into the heart of nature. Bio for Michael Silberstein: Michael David Silberstein is a Full Professor of Philosophy at Elizabethtown College, a founding member of the Cognitive Science program and permanent Adjunct in the Philosophy Department at the University of Maryland, College Park, where he is also a faculty member in the Foundations of Physics Program and a Fellow on the Committee for Philosophy and the Sciences. His primary research interests are foundations of physics, foundations of cognitive science and foundations of complexity theory respectively. He is especially interested in how these branches of philosophy and science bear on more general questions of reduction, emergence and explanation.

Lecture: Center for Humanities Monday Night Lecture Series

Jonathan Lamb, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of the Humanities Vanderbilt University The Implacability of Things This lecture tackles the assumption made in books such as Neil MacGregor's The History of the World in 100 Objects that things are in fact objects, either blindly subject to the commands of their human owners or willing on their own account to serve human purposes. I explore the possibilities of dissidence among things, and how they establish sets of agendas quite opposite to ours, as if aware that they are likely to outlive us (in the shape, for example, of keepsakes). Implacability then is the unmistakable sign of colliding interests evident when humans try to persuade themselves that ownership of personal property is (in the words of Blackstone) a position of absolute dominion over things. How this table gets turned is the theme of the talk.

Lecture: Center for Humanities Monday Night Lecture Series

COURTNEY WEISS SMITH Wesleyan University Toward a Language of Things When early Royal Society member John Wilkins sat down to create a language that would precisely mirror the reality of things, he found himself creating a language full of tropes. Scholars often read Wilkinss Essay Towards a Real Character, and a Philosophical Language (1668) as expressing a scientific worldview that condemns figurative language and disenchantsnature.This, however, is an inadequate caricature of Wilkinss text and seventeenth-century natural philosophy more generally. Wilkins seeks a language adequate to a natural world that he understands as inherently active and inherently meaningful, and tropes are crucial in capturing its complexity. While loudly condemning figurative languages excesses, Wilkins invents a special mark that could be added to words to indicate metaphoricity, and he uses metaphors, analogies, personifications, and periphrases as crucial tools for both understanding and speaking about reality. In the process, he offers a provocative take on an issue that we are still grappling with today: what are the relationships between and among language, human minds, and nature? This talk will explore Wilkinss notions of materiality and metaphor alongside recent new materialist experiments toward a way of using figurative language to illuminate the complexity of things.

Lecture: Center for Humanities Monday Night Lecture Series

What is Matter? Barbara Gail Montero What is Matter? The seventeenth century mathematician and philosopher Ren Descartes had an elegant answer to this question: the essence of matter, or of body, is extensionextension in length, breadth, and depth. And since Descartes also held that the mind is indivisible while everything extended is divisible, the classic mind-body problem was born: How are we to find a place for the mind in a material world. But the material world has undergone quite a few changes since the seventeenth century, or at least our conception of it has, and we no longer have an elegant answer to the question of what is matter, if we have an answer to it at all. In my talk, I shall grapple with some of the difficulties of understanding the concept of matter and ponder the question of what implications the thinning of matter might have for our philosophical theorizing about the mind-body problem.
