MemberEkin Erkan

Ekin Erkan is a Turkish philosopher specializing in the philosophy of mind, perception, science, language, and technology, notable for their research on Kant and the philosophy of mind. Erkan’s work is currently situated on the connection between Kant’s transcendental unity of apperception/original synthetic unity of apperception and the ‘association of ideas’ per Kant’s general and formal logic, parsing how Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason proffers a novel program for the philosophy of mind—particularly insofar as the binding of percepts is concerned. Insofar as the study of Kant and the philosophy of mind is concerned, Erkan is interest in expressivist approaches to the first person “I think”, and parsing between the apperceptive “I think”/transcendental “I think” and empirical “I think”, while exploring the conditions for higher-order thought vis-a-vis empirical content. Erkan is inspired by “strongly” epistemological vs. metaphysical readings of Kant scholars like Béatrice Longuenesse, Katharina Kraus, Tim Henning, Tobias Rosefeldt, Anja Jauernig, Lucy Allais and others. Erkan is currently working on a interested in Kant’s conception of obscure and clear representations and a its relationship with the higher-order thought (HOT) later formalized by David Rosenthal vs. inner sense theories. Insofar as the philosophy of mind is concerned, Erkan is, broadly speaking, interested in indirect realism and phenomenal overflow, especially the work of Ned Block. Erkan also is interested in empirical philosophy and neurophilosophy, particularly the philosophy of memory and perception, with a focus on olfaction and olfactory processing (following the work of those like Stuart Firestein and Ann-Sophie Barwich). Erkan is also interested in Hegel’s ‘das Logische’ and those interested in dialetheism, including Greg Moss, Elena Ficara, Richard Dien Winfield (with a particular interest in Hegel’s ‘das Logische’ and its relation to non-classical logics, modal logic, and formal logic). Having been raised by two physicians, one of whom was a neurosurgeon and neuroscientist, Erkan’s writing on the philosophy of perception and philosophy of mind/cognitive science keeps empirical philosophy, particularly neuroscience and perceptual psychology, close at hand. Erkan hopes to continue their work on empirical philosophy by further engaging the philosophical study of olfaction, prodding the philosophy of perception away from visuo-centric models. Background Erkan has published articles, book reviews, and commentaries. Broadly speaking, Erkan’s work is interested in perception, memory, and consciousness. Erkan has a background in German Idealism, the philosophy of mind and aesthetics, supplemented by graduate research in perception and memory. Despite originally publishing primarily within aesthetics and the philosophy of art/film, Erkan’s more recent work has squarely been in philosophy of cognitive science, mind, perception and Kant/post-Kantian German Idealism. Erkan has also worked as a columnist and art critic, publishing contributions on contemporary art and cinema. Amongst Erkan’s published articles, Erkan has written extensively vehicle externalism, Andy Clark and David Chalmers’ extended mind, Ned Block’s non-iconic memory and phenomenology of perception and mental paint, Robert Brandom’s strong inferentialism vs. Paul Redding’s weak inferentialism, and, more broadly, the Right-wing Sellarsian vs. Left-wing Sellarsian philosophical debates. Erkan’s articles have been published in peer-reviewed publications including  International Journal of Philosophical Studies, PerceptionPhilosophy in Reviewpli: Warwick Journal of PhilosophyNew Formations,Theory, Culture & SocietyThe Journal of Value InquiryThe Review of MetaphysicsRadical PhilosophyTheory & EventIdentities: Journal for Politics, Gender and Culture,Cosmos & HistoryAlphavilleCultural StudiesNew Review of Film and Television StudiesChiasmaRhizomesLabyrinthCultural Logic: A Journal of Marxist Theory & PracticeMedia TheoryPhilosophy East and West, and The Cincinnati Romance Review. Global Research Erkan worked with Giacomo Gilmozzi on Bernard Stiegler’s United Nations 2020 World Summit initiative “Internation.World.” With the support of the New Centre of Research & Practice, Erkan contributed to research on neuro-inferential Bayesian cognitive architecture in the Summer of 2020. Activism Erkan hopes to work in Turkey as an activist. Erkan has published extensively on Oktay Ince, a video activist/filmmaker whose work, spanning the last twenty years, was recently confiscated by Turkish authorities after being taken into police custody on May 30, 2019. Ince had raised suspicions after attempting to organize a protest in front of a courthouse in the capital of Ankara concerning the arrest and imprisoning of leftist activists, teachers, and artists in Turkey; Ince was quickly arrested. A month prior to his arrest, Ince had organized a protest in Izmir with a local feminist collective and was arrested once again, labelled a “terrorist” and charged with “insulting the president.” Following his most recent arrest, Ince has had his entire video archive confiscated by the Turkish state. Erkan’s writing on the unwarranted arrest, activism, and video art of Incay can be found here.

Anne Fuchs studied German and English Literature at the University of Konstanz, Trinity College Dublin and the Freie Universität Berlin. Her PhD examined the role of humour in the works of the Swiss writer Robert Walser. Between ‌1992-2010 she was Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and then Professor of Modern German Literature and Culture at University College Dublin where she co-founded the UCD Humanities Institute in 2002, funded by the Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions in Ireland (PRTLI 3). From 2002 – 2007 she was Principal Investigator of the five-year Research Programme “German Memory Contests since 1945”, funded by PRTLI3. In 2005/6 she received an IRCHSS Senior Research Fellowship, which enabled her to carry out research for her fourth monograph Phantoms of War in Contemporary German Literature, Films and Discourse. The award of a UCD Senior Fellowship in 2010 helped her to complete her research on After the Dresden Bombing: Pathways of Memory, 1945 to the Present. In 2011 she accepted the Chair and Professorship of German at the University of St Andrews before moving to Warwick in January 2012. She was a Fellow of the Max Planck research group Memory and History, University of Constance and guest researcher at the Kulturwissenschaftliche Kolleg, Universität Konstanz in 2014. She returned to UCD in September 2016 to assume the Directorship of the UCD Humanities Institute. She is a Member of the Royal Irish Academy and in 2014 she was elected a Fellow of the British Academy.Research interests
Memory studies (in particular German politics of memory since 1945); German literature in the 20th and 21st centuries; German-Jewish literature; Modernism; the cultural history of walking; time and temporality in the digital era.Her current research concerns the experience of historical acceleration at the beginning of the 21 century. The inability to determine the speed of social and economic developments through conventional legislation and planning in western democracy was underlined by the events in the wake of the financial crash of 2008. Indeed, the premium placed on speed and the constant drive towards innovation raise the question of how cultural connectedness to places and traditions can be assured under such radically new conditions. She was co-organiser (with Jonathan Long, Durham University) of an international conference on Faster than Light? Historical Experience, Placed Identity and Memory in the Age of Historical Acceleration which was held at the Institute of Advanced Studies at the University of Warwick from 7 – 9 March 2012. And The Longing for Time: Ästhetische Eigenzeit in Contemporary German Literature, Film and Art, held at the Kulturiwssenschaftliche Kolleg, Universität Konstanz , 15-17 May 2014 in collaboration with Prof. Aleida Assmann.
