About the conference

Since the 1980s, Latin American states have embarked in ambitious legal reforms, from the adoption of new constitutions to the enactment of new legal fields dealing with competition law or public procurement. The changes undergone have also brought upon changes in the structures of governments and in the perceptions that individuals have regarding their relationship with their states. The notion of fundamental rights is now as important as the notion of efficiency, central b…

CFP. Centre for Ethics Graduate Conference, University of Toronto

Por Jorge Luis Fabra Zamora (jorgefabraz@gmail.com)


***Call for Papers***
Centre for Ethics Graduate Conference, University of Toronto
“Theory and Practice: The Limits of Ethics for Guiding Action”
March 15 and 16, 2013, with Keynote Speaker:
Colin Farrelly, Queen’s University
Western social and political thought has long been concerned with the limitations of theoretical inquiry in beneficially guiding human behavior. From Aristotle’s debate with Plato on the nature of the ideal city to Marx’s famous assertion that “the philosophers have only interpreted the world; the point, however, is to change it!”, philosophers have long debated the relationship between theory and practice. More recently, this debate has resurfaced as a challenge to ‘ideal’ theories of justice and politics associated with twentieth century Anglo-American thinkers such as John Rawls and G.A Cohen. The critique of ideal theory is also evident in the continental philosophical tradition through the work of …

Florez sobre la educación jurídica

Por Jorge Luis Fabra Zamora (jorgefabraz@gmail.com)

Este es el provocativo discuso de Daniel Florez sobre la educación jurídica publicado en Democracia en Tu Cara. Aquí.
12/12/2012 El Porvenir De Una Ilusión…
Un comentario en torno a la De-Formación Jurídica. Daniel E. Florez Muñoz El Derecho en tanto objeto cultural, se articula al interior de una realidad en permanente transformación. La cual lejos de establecer criterios unívocos de determinación de lo jurídico frente a lo no jurídico, cada día muestra sus propias fronteras disciplinares como banas ilusiones de algún sueño positivista de diferenciación absoluta entre campos de conocimientos o si se quiere entre parcelas de saberes. El derecho por lo tanto se muestra como un lenguaje que se articula necesariamente en una realidad mediada por intereses políticos, económicos y sociales, los cuales lejos de ser ajenos al mismo, constituyen la condición de posibilidad de su sentido y los límites concretos de su acción. 

Y en ese orden de id…

CFP. La relacion entre teoria y practica politica

Por Jorge Luis Fabra Zamora (jorgefabraz@gmail.com)

Les comparto esta otra convocatoria de la universidad de Sheffield.

The relationship between Political Theory and politics – Graduate Conference in Political Theory
28 May 2013, University of Sheffield, ICOSS, 10 am-6 pm
Keynote speaker: Prof. Michael Freeden (Oxford University)
Almost any Political Theory aspires to address itself to a chosen political context, to speak to politics, and to be, at least in this sense, political. Recently thriving debates about “realism” or “(non-) ideal theory” in Political Theory have taken up this long-standing issue and at least implicitly focus on the following question: how are different strands of contemporary Political Theory related to politics?
The answers that these debates have advanced are often offered in terms of a dichotomy between “idealism” and “realism” and of rephrasing the question as a problem of application of Political Theory. Is this all there is to say about the rela…

Hart en su propia voz

Por Jorge Luis Fabra Zamora (jorgefabraz@gmail.com)
Creo que este es uno de los documentos más interesantes de este final de año. Con ocasión de la tercera edición de The Concept of Law, Oxford University Press ha publicado una entrevista a H. L. A. Hart realizada por el profesor David Sugarman. La nota en el texto de la entrada, pero los audios pueden ser consultados aquí.

By David Sugarman
This recording of my lengthy interview with H.L.A. Hart (1907–1992) has been resurrected from my audio tapes and given new life. Dusted and digitalized, the result is something quite beautiful. Here is Hart in his own words recorded in 1988, reviewing his life, his work, and his significance. The interview presents Hart as three individuals: legal philosopher, interviewee, and critic. The recording adds another dimension to our understanding o…

Congreso - Gómez Dávila

Por Jorge Luis Fabra Zamora (jorgefabraz@gmail.com)

Les presento el siguiente congreso sobre Nicolás Gómez Dávila. Gracias a Hernán Olano por la comunicación.

Universidad de La Sabana Facultad de Filosofía y Ciencias Humanas

Nicolás Gómez Dávila Congreso Internacional 16-18 mayo de 2013
El 18 de mayo de 1913 nació Nicolás Gómez Dávila, uno de los pensadores colombianos de mayor proyección internacional. Con motivo del primer centenario de su nacimiento, la Facultad de Filosofía y Ciencias Humanas de la Universidad de la Sabana (Chía, Colombia) anuncia la celebración de un congreso internacional sobre este autor. Aunque en las dos últimas décadas la bibliografía sobre este pensador ha progresado notablemente, todavía quedan muchos aspectos de la vida, el contexto, las fuentes y la influencia de este pensador en tinieblas. Diferentes motivos –tanto académicos como extra académicos– han caracterizado su figura de un modo a la vez sugerente y mítico. El congreso duraría dos días y…
