Vivian Puusepp: nutiseadmete liigtarvitamisest ei tohi mööda vaadata 07/06/2024

‼️ Ülioluline lugemine meie teadurilt 🌱Vivan Puusepalt🌱, kus ta toob tuginedes rahvusvaheliste uuringute raportitele, teadustöödele ja teiste riikide positiivsele praktikale välja väga olulised valukohad Eesti laste vaimse tervise ja nutisõltuvuse teemal, olles kriitiline Haridus- ja Teadusministeerium seisukohaga jätta koolidele vabad käed laste nutiseadmete kasutamise osas koolis ning kutsudes koole üles kiirelt ja selgelt tegutsema.

Vivian loetleb oma arvamusloos mitmeid olulisi aspekte, miks oleks riiklikult ühtne lähenemine nutiseadme keelustamise osas koolis vajalik ja kuidas aitaks see kaasa laste ja noorte vaimse tervise paranemisele, vähendades sellest tulenevalt ka probleemi, et vaimse tervise abi noortele (ja mitte ainult) on Eestis väga kättesaamatu.
Kristina Kallas ja Haridus- ja Teadusministeerium, ehk saab ikka paremini?! Õpetajate ja koolijuhtide õpipartnerid, mis te arvate ja kuidas suhtub sellesse ülikoolilinn Tartu linn?

Vivian Puusepp: nutiseadmete liigtarvitamisest ei tohi mööda vaadata Koolidel oleks oluliselt lihtsam nutireegleid jõustada ja nende vajalikkust nii lastele kui ka lapsevanematele selgitada, kui selleks tuleks selge signaal riigilt ja kui kõigis koolides kehtiksid sarnased põhimõtted, kirjutab Vivian Puusepp.

🎓Indrek Reiland from the University of Vienna will be presenting a thought-provoking talk titled "Against the Gricean Program".

Join Zoom Meeting
https://ut-ee.zoom.us/j/96893317324?pwd=THZqMXczQnprUW9mNjlWV3NSdUpMUT09

Abstract: The Gricean Program is one approach that tries to explain linguistic meaning in terms of use. It proceeds in a two-step manner. First, one defines an act of speaker meaning that doesn't presuppose linguistic meaning. Second, one then uses the act of speaker meaning to explain linguistic meaning, usually with the help of conventions. In this talk I argue that any view that attempts to explain linguistic meaning in terms of speaker meaning faces a dilemma: either it has a problem with generalizing from serious, communicative uses to all meaningful uses or it fails to capture an intuitive pre-theoretic notion of speaker meaning relevant to understanding communication, and is ultimately unnecessary. We should instead prefer the view that linguistic meaning is explained directly in terms of ordinary mental states like belief, judgment, entertaining, thinking of, pain etc.

KUULA SAADET | Venelased kardavad Kaliningradi kaotada 08/05/2024

Aprillis tähistasime Immanuel Kanti 300. sünniaastapäeva, ülikooli raamatukogus sai näha näitust tema originaalkäsikirjadest, toimus näitust saatev avalik loengusari, konverentse ja mitmeid teisi ettevõtmisi. Seda, kui suur on Kanti, kui ühe õhtumaise filosoofia suurkuju, mõju ka täna, näitab selgelt tema tugev seotus meie päevapoliitikaga. 🎓Eduard Parhomenko🎓, meie õppejõud ja Kanti mõtestaja, käis just saates "Vaim vardas", kus kõneles toimunud näitusest ja Kanti retseptsioonist Tartus ning saatejuhiga otsiti vastust ka küsimustele: Kuidas ja miks osutus Kant ühtäkki Putini lemmikfilosoofiks? Kui lähedane on Königsbergis (Kaliningradis) elanud ja loonud Kant Eestile?

How interdisciplinary researchers see themselves: plurality of understandings of interdisciplinarity within a field and why it matters - European Journal for Philosophy of Science It is widely acknowledged that interdisciplinarity (ID) is very diverse. Our contribution is a demonstration that considerable diversity exists also on the level of understandings of ID that researchers working in the same ID field express. Specifically, we analyse qualitatively, building on the met...

It will also include a guided tour at the University of Tartu Library’s exhibition of Tartu Kantiana as well as short presentations on the Kant-exhibition of the Latvian National Library and the digitalisation of Kant-related materials held at the Archives of the University of Königsberg at Olsztyn, coordinated by the Nordost-Institut Lüneburg.

DEBATE | Alex Davies, Barry Lam, & Thi Nguyen | Ce Network 15/04/2024

How much discretion should those who implement the law (the police, bureaucrats, judges) have when interpreting and applying the law? On Thursday, 5pm CET, our Department's Alex Davies (associate professor in philosophy of language) will be chairing an online discussion on just this topic. The discussion will take place between Barry Lam (who is both host of the podcast Hi Phi Nation (https://hiphination.org/) and author of a forthcoming book on discretion and the law) and Thi Nguyen (who's written several papers on institutional constraints on context-sensitive judgement i.e. on discretion). The discussion will take place online as part of the Conceptual Engineering Network event series. Follow the link to get more details (like the Zoom link).
