PETAF -  European Network

Le projet PETAF, financé à hauteur de 1,5 million d’euros par la communauté européenne, vise à établir un réseau philosophique européen de formation et de recherche ("Réseau Marie Curie") sur les thèmes de la dépendance contextuelle et de la relativité au point de vue dans le langage et la pensée, et sur les implications du "perspectivalisme" pour l’idée d’une réalité objective et indépendante de l’esprit. Le titre, "Perspectival Thought and Facts", fait écho au livre Perspectival Thought publié chez Oxford University Press par François Recanati, responsable de l’équipe parisienne (basée à l'EHESS). Outre l’EHESS, sept universités participent au réseau : Barcelone (coordinateur), Londres, Budapest, Stockholm, Genève, St Andrews, et Aberdeen (membre associé).

Résumé du projet
:

PETAF aims to serve as a European research and training platform for joint philosophical research on perspectivalism in thought and language and its consequences for our conception of objective, mind-independent reality. PETAF comprises seven full network partners and five associate partners, four of which from industry. It is to provide seven Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with the skills necessary for meeting the demands of top research in this area of philosophy, and the opportunity to apply and enhance these skills, and to acquire further, complementary skills, in professional contexts outside academia. PETAF’s research programme addresses both foundational issues in metaphysics and in logic and semantics and local issues in more specialised areas in which perspective-bound cognition plays a pivotal role, i.e. the philosophy of space and time, the philosophy of alethic and epistemic modality, the philosophy of subjectivity and consciousness, and the philosophy of norms and value. PETAF’s training programme, which is conducted in close interaction with the projected research, consists of seven well-articulated training modules, of which six are devoted to research training in the aforementioned fields and one is devoted to complementary skills training. Secondments at PETAF’s industrial partners are core elements of the training programme, as is reflected in the time that ESRs are expected to spend with industry. PETAF thus seeks to significantly increase the career opportunities and job prospects of its recruited ESRs, both inside and outside academia.
