      Description: Keynote Speech on May 17, 2018, IWM library   What people mean by religion covers a wide spectrum: not only because of the differences between different faiths, but also because the category “religion” is hard to separate from that of “culture”, and is also related to what we often call “identity”. The co-existence of different religions and/or understandings of religion takes many different forms, some extremely conflictual, and others which tend to foster peaceful co-existence and mutual understanding.   Charles Taylor is Professor em. of Philosophy at McGill University, Montreal, and a Permanent Fellow at the IWM. Beyond that, he was a Visiting Professor at the Universities of Oxford, Princeton, Berkeley, Frankfurt a. M., and at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Amongst other awards and honorary degrees, he received the 2007 Templeton Prize and the 2008 Kyoto Prize, one of the world’s leading awards for lifetime achievements in the social sciences and humanities. In 2015, Charles Taylor has been awarded the prestigious $1.5 million John W. Kluge Prize for Achievement in the Study of Humanity granted by the Library of Congress. In 2016, he received the Berggruen-Prize for Philosophie and in 2018 the Blue Metropolis’s International Literary Grand Prix.   The keynote speech by Charles Taylor is part of the conference ‘The End(s) of Religious Community‘, which takes place on May 16 at the University of Vienna and on May 17. / 18. at the IWM. The conference is organised by Jason Alvis, Ludger Hagedorn and Michael Staudigl (in cooperation with University of Vienna).   Further informations on www.iwm.at.

      Description: Prof. Dr. Charles Taylor ist emeritierter Professor für Philosophie an der McGill University in Montréal. Er gilt als einer der angesehensten Vertreter der Sozialphilosophie wie der politischen Philosophie in der Gegenwart.  2008 wurde ihm für sein Lebenswerk der Kyoto-Preis verliehen, eine der weltweit höchsten Auszeichnungen für Verdienste um Wissenschaft und Kultur.  Charles Taylor entwirft in seinem Buch „Ein säkulares Zeitalter“ das Panorama der Epoche der Säkularisierung. Das mehrfach ausgezeichnete Werk inspiriert durch seine tiefgreifende Analyse und zugleich von gläubiger Zuversicht getragene Perspektive, erregte große Aufmerksamkeit und sorgt weiterhin für intensive Diskussionen. Im Horizont der zentralen Fragestellung nach dem Verhältnis von Religion und Moderne setzt sich Taylor mit der geistesgeschichtlich-religiösen Entwicklung der abendländischen Zivilisation in der Neuzeit auseinander. Er reflektiert diese Entwicklung, die er durch einen tiefen Wandel hin zu Säkularität in unterschiedlichen Dimensionen geprägt sieht: von einer Gesellschaft, in der es praktisch unmöglich war, nicht an Gott zu glauben, zu einer Gesellschaft, in der dieser Glaube nur mehr eine von mehreren Möglichkeiten darstellt.  Taylor spürt den Ursachen einer Situation nach, in der areligiöse Weltdeutungen für immer mehr Menschen die einzig einleuchtenden und die Dimension des Transzendenten vielfach keine in Frage kommende Option mehr zu sein scheinen. Und er fragt danach, wie unter diesen Bedingungen Glauben und spirituelle Erfahrung noch möglich sind.

      Description: In The Language Animal, Professor Charles Taylor shows that the accounts of the nature of language that have dominated analytic philosophy in recent decades are much too narrow, focusing on the function language plays in encoding information, at the expense of the constitutive powers of language. In this lecture, Professor Taylor refocuses attention on the creative, meaning-making, and meaning-articulating powers of language.

      Description: Multiculturalist policies are attempts to fulfil a requirement of modern democracies, particularly in the West: they aim to be inclusive. Yet these democracies are periodically tempted to target minorities, and brand then as second-class citizens. The temptation to do this flows from one of the core requirements of democracy, a strong common political identity. Recently many “Western” democracies (this is not simply a geographic category) have slipped  into this negative stance towards religious minorities, in particular Muslims. French (and Quebec) policies of “laïcité” (secularism) provide examples. What drives these? Why the focus on religion? Are the policies which flow from this negative stance counter-productive, even dangerous? These are the questions which this talk addresses.
      Professor Charles Taylor's remarks on secularism and multiculturalism were delivered at the launch of the Institute for Social Justice, a research institute of the Australian Catholic University, in the Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House, on 28 April 2016.

      Description: On November 16, the renowned Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor was at the American Academy to deliver the 2017 Fritz Stern lecture, “Democratic Degeneration: Three Easy Paths to Regression.”   Taylor’s talk addressed a concern held by increasing numbers of thoughtful people in recent years: that democracy is sliding backwards—losing ground internationally to authoritarian rule, voter apathy, and the slogans of populist rhetoric.   To understand more about Taylor’s thoughts on the subject, we arranged a discussion between him and American Academy fellow Dilip Gaonkar, a politial theorist at Northwestern University and Taylor’s decades-long colleague at the the Center for Transcultural Studies. We recorded their discussion at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, in Potsdam, where Taylor was a short-term fellow.
    • Charles Taylor. "Democratic Degeneration: Three Easy Paths to Regression." Video. American Academy in Berlin, Nov 20, 2017. 1:22:08. https://youtu.be/UIl56Kisp3s
      Description: A recurrent liberal dream envisions inevitable progress towards worldwide democracy. Hopes for this dream were boosted at three points during the twentieth century: 1919, 1945, and 1989. Despite these advances, renowned philosopher Charles Taylor sees this dream’s realization as very unlikely. Democracies, Taylor argues, carry within them the seeds of their own degeneration. In this talk, he describes three paths upon which democracies can easily falter—and which must be fought against: elitist control, nativist exclusion, and majority rule.

      Description: The Anxieties of Democracy program is delighted to invite you to its second public 2016 “Democracy in the City” event, at Civic Hall: on Friday, October 21, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.   “Democratic Exclusion: A Think-In in Three Acts,” featuring world-renowned political philosopher Charles Taylor in conversation with civic leaders Keesha Gaskins-Nathan, Sarah Leonard, and Tova Wang. Orchestral music conducted by Benjamin Hochman invites further reflection on the theme.   Democracy, at its roots, means “the power of the people.” Yet around the world, people living in self-styled democracies are excluded from power. How do we understand exclusion in a democratic context, and can we do anything about it?   Act 1: Our event opens with the Finale of Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 45, “Farewell.” In 1772, the piece demonstrated to Haydn’s patron what a world without musicians would look like. Here, the “Farewell” hints at what the democratic space resembles when it has been emptied due to exclusion.   Act 2: Keesha Gaskins-Nathan will then launch an exploration of the meanings and boundaries of democratic exclusion, initiated by Charles Taylor, in conversation with Sarah Leonard and Tova Wang, and continued with members of the audience.   Act 3: The Think-In concludes with a second moment of reflection provided by a performance of Jessie Montgomery’s Starburst.   This event is cosponsored by Civic Hall and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.

      Description: Nous autres, modernes, parlons souvent de notre monde comme un monde désenchanté. Un monde où il n’y a plus ni magie ni esprits maléfiques et où croire en Dieu est non seulement une exception mais en plus vu comme pratique résolument archaïque. Comment sommes-nous passés d’une société où il était impossible de ne pas croire en Dieu à une société où cela est non seulement permis mais surtout où c’est devenu la norme ? Une question simple qui nous embarque dans un grand récit de notre histoire mais aussi de notre philosophie, des nos arts…C’est à ce récit que s’attèle le grand philosophe Charles Taylor qui nous fait le plaisir de son passage à la maison de la radio. La sécularité est-elle l’avenir de l’humanité ou simplement une bizarrerie de la modernité occidentale ? Et la question qui court tout du long de l’ouvrage : la modernité peut-elle survivre sans religion ?

      Description: In this lecture, Canadian philosopher, Charles Taylor, will examine the conditions of belief in the contemporary West. Our current situation is one in which Western Christendom — a society and civilization meant to reflect the Christian faith in all its facets — is unraveling. The faith exists in all kinds of societies, including those built historically around cultures quite alien to Christianity. But we are definitely living in a post-Christendom culture; the common world we all share is moving away from the essential features of Christendom. What does this cultural situation mean for the orientations and forms of Christian faith, as well as for other spiritual paths? How can these many paths relate to each other today? .

The event shall be a meeting of believers and non-believers on how in the 21st century the two sensitivies of Piazza and Temple can coexist allowing equal liberty for all. We shall be asking how these voices can live together, what are the limits that rights bring, and how can the piazza and the temple have a Palace. A post-secular dialogue in front of a solid backdrop: the decline of an understanding of secularisation that believed temples would be progressively emptied.

      Description: Date: Tuesday 1 December 2015 Time: 6.30-8pm Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building Speaker: Professor Charles Taylor Chair: Professor Craig Calhoun   Professor Charles Taylor will look at the constant temptation for modern democracies to veer towards exclusion. This is despite them being founded on a principle of inclusion, and is due to a weakness built into motivations which democracies draw upon. Having firmly established this context, Professor Taylor will discuss the exclusionary moves we have seen in many Western democracies which have targeted (unfamiliar) religions. Why this intense focus and how to overcome it? This lecture will focus mainly on the Quebec/Canadian situation, and will also point to the current parallels evident in many European countries today.   Charles Taylor is a Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at McGill University. His recent works include: Modern Social Imaginaries, A Secular Age, and Laïcité et Liberté de Conscience (with Jocelyn Maclure).    Professor Craig Calhoun (@craigjcalhoun) is Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science.   This event is co-organised with the Québec Government Office in London.

      Description: Date and time: Monday, 25 November 2013, 6 pmVenue: Multipurpose Hall, India International Centre, 40, Max Mueller Marg, New DelhiChair: Mrinal Miri 

      The focus of the lecture was Paul Ricoeur's philosophical anthropology. Charles Taylor puts Ricouer's thought in the context of the battles in philosophical anthropology in the 20th century. He explains how Ricoeur gave up the idea that there is a short royal road to understanding human beings, be this reductive science, structuralism or Husserlian direct introspection and developed his own hermeneutical approach in which we presume our own enigmatic status and strive to understand ourselves by painstakingly coming to a better understanding of our history, religions, ideologies, institutions, manners of writing literature and creating art. Hence the laborious work of Ricoeur, going in depth into various aspects of these, reading massively in all directions. A very vast enterprise, but the only way to do this kind of thing!.

      Description: L'Âge séculier est une riche réflexion sur les conditions contemporaines de la croyance. Il est d'usage de dire que nous, modernes occidentaux, appartenons à un « âge séculier ». Comment sommes-nous passés d'un temps, encore proche, où il était inconcevable de ne pas croire en Dieu, à l'époque actuelle où la foi n'est plus qu'une option parmi d'autres et va jusqu'à susciter la commisération ?

      Description: Philosopher Charles Taylor talks about individual identity, particularly as reflected in moral positions of individuals. Professor Taylor explains that what often seems to be the position of the individual alone is actually a position that has, at least in part, come about as the result of the larger group or community to which the individual belongs.    .

      Description: Philosopher Charles Taylor discusses Hegel's beliefs about life's goals. Professor Taylor explains that Hegel saw human beings as intrinsically rational, which he linked very closely to freedom. In fact, Professor Taylor says, Hegel defined reason very much as Kant did--namely, that one is free when one, as a rational being, is controlling one's own life. In Hegel's view, the highest purpose in life is being part of the process that brings about the fullest realization of freedom and reason.

      Description: Philosopher Charles Taylor talks about the tendency to see the mental and the physical as two completely separate and distinct categories.

    • ———. "The Self in Historical Context (Part Three)." Video. INTELECOM, Mar 16, 2018. 6:13. https://youtu.be/fJC5-8u7DaE
      Description: Philosopher Charles Taylor continues his discussion of the self, tracing the evolution of the concept over time. Professor Taylor talks about the modern perspective of the self, which he describes as being two kinds of internal, self-examination that are very much at odds. This first of these consists of taking the things that we desire and making them over in a rational form. The second aspect of the modern self argues against the first approach, looking instead for a new means by which to express what we truly want and desire.    .

      Description: Continuing his discussion of the self in historical context, philosopher Charles Taylor talks about the progression of ideas about the self from Descartes through John Locke. It was from Locke that what Professor Taylor calls the "punctual self" that's seen in the modern world first emerged. This is the concept of the self that is not defined by any particular substantive desires, tendencies or beliefs, but by the idea that one has the power to makes one's self over by "careful examination."    .

      Description: Philosopher Charles Taylor talks about George Herbert Mead and the distinction he made between the "I" and the "me." The fundamental idea here is that we don't discover who we are simply from the inside. Rather, we discover who we are by how we're received, accepted, and not accepted by others.    .
    • ———. "Reductive Theories of the Self." Video. INTELECOM, Mar 16, 2018. 3:40. https://youtu.be/P5TRbbIGSek
      Description: Philosopher Charles Taylor discusses his ideas about what he calls "reductive theories of human beings."

He adds that two examples of reductive theories are behaviorism and what he terms "the computer model."
