- Charlie Thame, Love, Ethics, and Emancipation: The Implications of Conceptions of Human Being and Freedom in Heidegger and Hegel for Critical International Theory.This thesis is an original contribution to critical international relations theory. Responding to Hartmut Behr's call for the development of more universalistic trajectories of ontological inquiry for contemporary (global) politics and ethics, our original contribution is to establish a 'critical' approach to international theory on a more universalistic meta-theoretical foundation. Proceeding from a philosophical analysis of 'ontological' foundations in influential normative, meta-theoretical, and critical approaches to international theory, we argue for a shift from international theory’s reliance on a shallow ontology (...)
- Lucy Frances Annie Taylor, Decolonizing International Relations : Perspectives From Latin America.This article joins a growing chorus of voices aiming to decolonize International Relations. It argues that the location of Latin America is ideally placed to bring a significant critique of IR because of its intimate relationship to one of conventional IR’s key protagonists: the USA. The analysis involves thinking about the USA from a historical and theoretical position in Latin America, exploring the always intimate relationship between the two. It draws its inspiration particularly from Latin American theorization of the ‘coloniality (...)

Gritzner, On Philosophy and Participation.This is a co-edited issue of Performance Research which includes an essay by Gritzner ('Form and Formlessness: Participation at the Limit'), a conversation (interview) by Gritzner ('On Participation in Art: A Conversation with Alexander Düttmann'), and a co-authored editorial (with Laura Cull).
- Graham Gardner, Unreliable Memories and Other Contingencies: Problems with Biographical Knowledge.This article addresses two concerns that are central to much of the qualitative research currently ongoing in both the social sciences and other fields of social research: the status awarded to biographical knowledges and, associatively, how such knowledges are dealt with in concrete research. The first section calls attention to the unreliability of memory in order to cast doubt on the veracity of lay actors' accounts and thus question their position in social research. The second section, taking up this challenge, (...)No categories

- Milja Kurki, The Politics of the Philosophy of Science.Monteiro and Ruby (2009) argue that International Relations (IR) scholars should look to adopt a more ‘tentative attitude’ towards the philosophy of science (PoS) frameworks in IR. This is an attractive and timely call for more open-minded PoS argumentation in the field. Yet, the logic of Monteiro and Ruby’s argument is not (rather characteristically of PoS debates) infallible. As other commentaries in this forum show, it is not self-evident that Monteiro and Ruby’s account is ‘post-foundational’, or that it is premised (...)
- Richard Jackson (2007). The Core Commitments of Critical Terrorism Studies. European Political Science 6:244-251.Critical terrorism studies (CTS) is founded firstly on a series of powerful critiques of the current state of orthodox terrorism studies, including: its poor methods and theories, its state centricity, its problem-solving orientation and its institutional and intellectual links to state security projects. Defined broadly by a sceptical attitude towards accepted terrorism 'knowledge', CTS is also characterised by a set of core epistemological, ontological and ethical commitments, including: an appreciation of the politically constructed nature of terrorism knowledge; an awareness of (...)
- M. Lee & N. Lacey (2004). The Influence of Epistemology on the Design of Artificial Agents. Minds and Machines 13 (3):367-395.Unlike natural agents, artificial agents are, to varying extent, designed according to sets of principles or assumptions. We argue that the designers philosophical position on truth, belief and knowledge has far reaching implications for the design and performance of the resulting agents. Of the many sources of design information and background we believe philosophical theories are under-rated as valuable influences on the design process. To explore this idea we have implemented some computer-based agents with their control algorithms inspired by two (...)No categories
