A Vision of Resistance: Peter Nestler

A retrospective of the work of acclaimed postwar German filmmaker Peter Nestler, hosted by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Nestler was an incisive critic of fascism and a "precise observer of the poetry and politics of labor...[who] spent five decades chronicling how things get made, whether in a factory or at the level of ideology." Nestler himself will be present for a series of Q&A sessions accompanying the screenings. For more information, visit the Goethe Institut's website.

The event will take place at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, located at 144 West 65th Street.

How is Objectivity Possible? Brown Bag Talk. Max Kolbel.

"Abstract: What would it take to have objective representations and do humans have what it takes? In order to help answer these questions, I shall isolate one relevant sense of objectivity and argue that we need a generalization of standard frameworks of representational content in order to engage meaningfully with the question. Armed with such a general conception, I will articulate one necessary condition for objective representation: the possession of objective concepts and therefore objective contents. Finally, I shall explore two ways in which we might meet (or approximately meet) this condition."

Organized by Christia Mercer. “The Philosophy Department and Center for Science and Society at Columbia University invite you to “Rethinking Philosophy’s Past, 1300-1800” (February 17-18). Distinguished historians will share recent scholarship on women and other understudied figures in the history of philosophy to encourage more accurate accounts of philosophy’s past and more inclusive teaching.
