International Research Workshop
Phenomenology of values and personal identity
Palazzo Arese Borromeo, Cesano Maderno
December 2nd – 3rd, 2021 – in presence and online

Axiology, normativity, ethics are more and more investigated in contemporary phenomenology, often in the frame of well-established phenomenological contributions to social ontology, especially as concerns we-identity and its relationships to personal identity.
Axiology is largely debated within analytic philosophy and cognitive science. While reductive approaches are widely questioned in metaethics and philosophy of mind, a functionalist approach to the notion of value prevails in cognitive science, where reference to the experiential dimensions of our value-judgment and commitment is often neglected.
From a phenomenological point of view, value experience is a self-revealing and self-constitutive mode of consciousness, both from a singular (“me”) and from a plural (“we”) first-person perspective. Contemporary research, both in phenomenology and on phenomenological traditions, will be the main focus of our workshop.
