We are happy to invite you to our next D-Flect session, which will take place on Monday, 7 May 2018 at Hasso Plattner Institute.

We will discuss the topic “Creativity in Philosophy”:

‘Creative’ is not a word that is frequently used - at least in analytic circles - in describing the work of philosophers and logicians. In this talk Prof. Dr. Michael Beaney wants to illustrate how philosophy and logic are indeed creative at their deepest levels by taking five case studies: Meno’s paradox, Cantor’s ‘discovery’ of transfinite numbers, Frege’s construal of concepts as functions, Russell’s use of interpretive analysis in the theory of descriptions, and Kant’s Copernican revolution.

We are looking forward to welcoming our speaker Prof. Dr. Michael Beaney, Professor of History of Analytic Philosophy at the Institut für Philosophie, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Professor of Philosophy at King’s College London.

Professor Michael Beaney’s post at King’s College London is held jointly with a half-time position as Professor of History of Analytic Philosophy at the Humboldt University in Berlin. Before taking up these jobs he was Reader (2005–09) and then Professor of Philosophy (2009–15) at the University of York. He has held Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowships in Germany at the University of Jena (2006–07) and University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (1999–2000), and was Visiting Professor at Beijing Normal University in 2013 and 2014 and Peking University in 2011.

After Professor Beaneys talk, all participants have the opportunity to take part in a discussion round moderated by Dr. Julia von Thienen, Design Thinking Researcher at Hasso Plattner Institute. The discussion round will begin with reflections on common patterns in the creative processes of philosophers, logicians and design thinkers; then the discussion will be open to all questions.

WHEN: 7 May 2018, 17:30-18:30

WHERE: Hasso Plattner Institute, Prof.-Dr.-Helmert-Str. 2 - 3, Potsdam, 3rd Floor, Main Building

The D-Flect will be held in English.

We look forward to a great discussion!
