Conference Visualizing Antiquity 2012-03-16 All Day
Description

For more than 1,500 years, the civilizations of Classical Greece and Rome have inspired scholars, artists and activists from all disciplines and walks of life. Greco-Roman culture has many heirs and interpreters, not only in Western European culture, but in the Islamic world and Central and East Asia. Today, popular interest in Classical myth, drama, and history continues to grow, not just in the West, but in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and South America. "Visualizing Antiquity" will explore the ways in which scholars and artists, past and present, have constructed their visions of the ancient world.

Lecture/Seminar Environmental Geopolitics in the 21st Century 2012-03-16 14:45:00
Description

Environmental Geopolitics in the 21st Century

Lecture by Simon Dalby, Carleton University

For the past quarter of a century, environmental security has been on both the academic and policy agendas.  Lack of clarity concerning which danger to what societies mattered most marked the discussion.  Critical voices have long warned that simplistic assumptions of environmental change leading directly to conflict are misleading at best, and dangerous at worst.  Violence is often related to resource abundance rather than to scarcitiies, so great care has had to be taken in linking environmental change to conflict and subsequently devising useful policy responses in particular places.

In the last few years, climate change has added a growing urgency to discussions of environmental security, and increasingly refocused matters in terms of "climate security."  This has complicated both the academic and policy pictures very considerably.  While some of the lessons of the earlier discussion have continued relevance, and in particular in response to extreme events, climate security themes have to engage directly with global environmental change, and with earth systems science in particular.  Doing so requires a shift in focus from some of the early formulations of environmental security.

Now it seems that climate security in the long run is not a matter of environmental change causing political difficulties, but rather a matter of contemporary political difficulties causing accelerating climate change.  This has major implications for how we understand global security, and the role of the military in particular, in these new circumstances.  But the urgency of dealing with climate change means that these matters need much further careful attention from both academic and security analysts.

Lecture/Seminar Kant's 'I' in "I ought to" and Freud's Super-Ego 2012-03-16 14:30:00
Description

University of Victoria Philosophy Colloquium

Professor Beatrice Longuenesse
New York University

There are striking structural similarities between Freud’s “ego” and Kant’s “transcendental unity of apperception,” which for Kant grounds our use of “I” in “I think.” There are also striking similarities between Freud’s “superego” and Kant’s account of the mental structure that grounds our use of “I” in the moral “I ought to.” The paper explores the latter on three main points: the conflict of motivations internal to the mind, the relation between discursive and pre-discursive representation of moral motivation, the unconscious character of moral motivation. The suggestion is that Freud offers resources for a naturalized account (an account in terms of the causal development of empirical human beings) of just those features of our moral motivation that, according to Kant, seem to make it least amenable to a naturalistic explanation.

Lecture/Seminar Motivation of Extended Behaviors by Anterior Cingulate Cortex 2012-03-16 15:30:00
Description

Speaker: Clay Holroyd, Dept. of Psychology, University of Victoria

Intense research interest over the past decade has yielded diverse and often discrepant theories about the function of anterior cingulate cortex (ACC). In particular, a dichotomy has emerged between neuropsychological theories suggesting a primary role for ACC in motivating or “energizing” behavior, and neuroimaging-inspired theories emphasizing its contribution to cognitive control and reinforcement learning. To reconcile these views, I will propose that ACC supports the selection and maintenance of “options” – extended, context-specific sequences of behavior directed toward particular goals – that are learned through a process of hierarchical reinforcement learning. This theory accounts for ACC activity in relation to learning and control while simultaneously explaining the effects of ACC damage as disrupting the motivational context supporting the production of goal-directed action sequences.
