The film depicts the rude arrival of seriously ill Ernie (Brian Dennehy) into the household of daughter Jeannie (Helen Hunt), her husband, Ned (Liev Schreiber), and their two children. Jeannie, who has long had a troubled relationship with her cantankerous father, basically drops everything to care for him, receiving moral but less practical support from her work harried husband. Sexually frustrated at home,a href=”” target=”_blank” style=”text-decoration: none;”mens silver michael kors watch/a, he becomes increasingly receptive to the not so subtle advances of co worker Robin (Carla Gugino), a sexy, free spirited temptress whose motto “live for today” is expressed in her heavy consumption of booze and drugs and habit of skinny dipping in her underground pool.

The 2nd Nicolai Hartmann Society Conference, held in Trento, Italy (25-27 August 2014), was a great success. All who attended benefited from good presentations, engaging discussions, and warm camaraderie. Many thanks to all of those who presented and participated for making it such a wonderful experience. For those of you who regrettably were unable to attend, the website will keep you informed of future conferences, smaller sessions, and workshops on Hartmann’s work.

Two administrative issues were voted on by members of the society at the conference. Roberto Poli, long-time President of the society, stepped down after a four-year term. Professor Poli’s many contributions to the international spread of knowledge and enthusiasm about Hartmann’s work has been exceptional. Nominees for new President were considered, and Keith Peterson was voted in as the new President of the Society. Peterson hopes to continue to foster interest in Hartmann’s work in the English-speaking philosophical world, not only through arranging periodic conferences, but through encouraging new English translations of, and research on, Hartmann’s imposing and important works.

The second vote confirmed the inclusion of Professor Predrag Cicovacki and Professor Roberto Poli on the Scientific Committee of the society. The Committee now consists of Joachim Fischer (Dresden University), Eugene Kelly (New York Institute of Technology), Andreas Kinneging (Leiden University), Predrag Cicovacki (Holy Cross), and Roberto Poli (University of Trento).

I encourage you to send information about events or publications of possible interest to Hartmann scholars to our email address ( for possible inclusion on the webpage.

I thank you all for your continued interest and support, and am looking forward to working with you in the future.

The Nicolai Hartmann Society will meet with the Central Division of
the American Philosophical Association in February, 2013

Hartmann offers the idea that philosophy is at the very brink of discoveries in ethics and in ontology, not at the end of its route; he is always willing to go back to the roots of thought, always willing to concede that some problems in metaphysics, though genuine, may always elude our efforts to understand and answer them, but he is nonetheless certain that we can make progress: his doctrine of categories, the theory of modalities, his description of the virtues, the phenomenology of aesthetic experience are but a sample of his contributions to philosophy. Careful analysis of the categorial connections that link them together show that there is a way of systematically develop philosophy without falling into the inflexibility of a closed system. Hartmann understood reality as essentially dynamic, and gave the category of process a central place within his categorial framework. We welcome papers on any portion of Hartmanns philosophy, its place in the history of philosophy, and its relevance for contemporary issues.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Ontological categories, their nature and organization
  • Modalities and spheres of being
  • Levels of reality
  • Values, including ethical and aesthetical ones, their nature and organization
  • The interplay between metaphysics, ontology and epistemology
  • Philosophical methodology (how to study and teach philosophy)

Applications should be sent to both Eugene Kelly and Roberto Poli.

Important Dates:

  • Abstracts due: April 1, 2012
  • Notification of acceptance: June 30, 2012
  • Conference: New Orleans, Louisiana (USA), February 20-23 2013.
