GIVING ACCOUNT OF EMOTIONS: SUBJECTS, SOCIETY AND REASONS XI Inter-University Workshop on Mind, Art and Morality (Madrid, September 27-29, 2017)

The Inter-University Workshop on Mind, Art and Morality promotes the interconnections across different areas in philosophy and, in particular, the study of issues lying at the intersection of ethics, aesthetics and the philosophy of mind. In previous editions, the Workshop has been devoted either to the production of a particular philosopher, including Gregrory Currie, Richard Wollheim, Jonathan Dancy, Christine Korsgaard, Shaun Nichols, David Filkenstein, and Malcolm Budd; or to explore topics such as the Cognitive Value of Literature, the Philosophy of Music (Peter Kivy, Noël Carroll or Derek Matravers), Self-Knowledge (David Filkenstein and Sarah Sawyer) and Art and Negative Emotions (Susan Feagin and Eileen John).  On the 2017 edition, we intend to focus on how emotions play a central role in the configuration of I- and We- identities in a relational way. We will examine issues such as the relevance of reactive and negative emotions (ranging from shame to sadness) in the constitution of subjectivity and intersubjectivity; the link between empathy, otherness and self-awareness, and how our sense of the self is framed by social structures and interactions that shape individual and collective affects and moods.
