International Conference

English

At first glance, any naturalistic conception of the world struggles with the kind of explanation that normativity seems to require. Roughly speaking, philosophical naturalism tends to undermine the role of normative sciences in philosophy. This view advocates descriptive sciences that depict empirical facts or daily life practices—by which they describe how things normally are.

Colloque international

French

Toute forme de naturalisme, quelle qu'elle soit, finit par se heurter à la question de la normativité, et au type particulier d'explication qu'elle requiert. De manière un peu caricaturale, on peut dire que la perspective naturaliste occulte en quelque sorte le rôle des sciences normatives en philosophie. Il s'agit d'une vision qui met de l'avant une forme purement descriptive de discours, en s'attardant plutôt aux données empiriques et aux pratiques qui caractérisent nos comportements quotidiens. Autrement dit, le naturalisme cherche à décrire comment les choses sont de manière générale.
