- Brian Wayne Fuller, Adorno, Hegel and the Philosophical Origins of Classical Social Theory.The central claim of my dissertation is that the work of Theodor Adorno offers a valuable framework for reevaluating the philosophical heritage of classical social theory. In his ongoing engagement with the philosophy of German Idealism, and with Hegel in particular, Adorno’s philosophical, sociological, and cultural critical writings involve a critical rethinking of the relationship between subject and object, and between individual and society. I make two primary arguments to substantiate my claim. The first is that Adorno’s work must be (...)No categories
- Susan Patrick Breit, The Phenomenology of a Simple Song: Expression, Creativity, and the Recovery of Aesthetics.By placing aesthetics as art back within the phenomena of experience, this work seeks to recover philosophical aesthetics from the marginal position into which it has been relegated. Merleau-Ponty’s thought and the perception of music lay a groundwork for ontology and epistemology less conditioned by Cartesian biases. Musical thinking highlights the rich content of thought, the dimensionality of meaning, and the need to place language back within the phenomena of expression. A phenomenology of expression by way of songwriting reveals a (...)No categories
- Sanya Nicole Dejanovic, The Paradox of Sense, or On the Event of Thought in Giles Deleuze's Philosophy.Written under the double heading The Paradox of Sense, or on the Event of Thought, this dissertation is a study of the doubled pathway of articulation in Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy. With the repetition of the heading, we want to suggest that, in fact, these two pathways unfold with respect to the same Event. The question which way do we turn, away or towards the virtual, is equivalent to the question, what difference is there. The double pathway defines the central problematic (...)No categories
- Allan Frederick Randall, An Algorithmic Interpretation of Quantum Probability.The Everett interpretation of quantum mechanics has come under fire for inadequately dealing with the Born rule. Numerous attempts have been made to derive this rule from the perspective of observers within the quantum wavefunction. These are not really analytic proofs, but are rather attempts to derive the Born rule as a synthetic a priori necessity, given the nature of human observers. I show why existing attempts are unsuccessful or only partly successful, and postulate that Solomonoff's algorithmic approach to the (...)No categories
- Sheldon Vaughn Richard Grabke, Institutional Strategies and Factors That Contribute to the Engagement of Recent Immigrant Adult Students in Ontario Post-Secondary Education.The purpose of this study is to provide a unique investigation that yields vital data on barriers experienced by recent immigrant adult students, the policies, practices and supports in PSE and their impact on RIAS engagement, and factors that contribute to the engagement of RIAS in Ontario PSE. This examination contributes to and furthers the student engagement in PSE literature by providing an original view into RIAS engagement in PSE. This dissertation involves qualitative and quantitative research methods including 18 key (...)No categories
- Concetta Valentina Principe, Messiah, Muselmann and the Return of Paul's Real: Evidence for a Trauma of Secularism.This project addresses the anomaly evident in the use of religious terms for secular projects. If secularism was a system that intended to free the state from religion and the subject from religious superstition, then why would religious terminology be used in twentieth-century intellectual and cultural secular projects? For example, why would noted Marxist philosopher Walter Benjamin draw on the messianic figure in his “Theses on the Philosophy of History”? Moreover, what could be meant by the identification of the most (...)No categories

- Jay Rahn (1983). A Theory for All Music : Problems and Solutions in the Analysis of Non-Western Forms. University of Toronto Press.Professor Rahn takes the approach to the analysis of Western art music developed recently by theorists such as Benjamin Boretz and extends it to address non-Western forms. In the process, he rejects recent ethnomusicological formulations based on mentalism, cultural determinism, and the psychology of perception as potentially fruitful bases for analysing music in general. Instead he stresses the desirability of formulating a theory to deal with all music, rather than merely Western forms, and emphasizes the need to evaluate an analysis (...)
- Mark Neufeld, The Reflexive Turn and International Relations Theory.The paper examines the prospects for the development of theoretically reflexive theory in the discipline of international relations. First, the issue of theoretical reflexivity is discussed in terms of the "reflexive turn" associated with post-positivist philosophy of science in contemporary social and political theory. The question of whether a parallel to the "reflexive turn" in social and political theory can be identified in theorizing about international relations is then addressed. It is argued that in the context of international relations theory's (...)

- H. S. Harris (2007). Would Hegel Be A 'Hegelian'Today? Cosmos and History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy 3 (2-3):5-15.In this paper H. S. Harris argues that it is misguided to suggest that Hegelrsquo;s philosophical project was a dialectical illusion generated by his historical situation and that he would never have believed that his vision was achievable if he had been faced with the world that we face today. Not only does Harris proclaim himself to be a Hegelian, he claims that Hegel would today also remain a Hegelian. He goes on to argue that despite the fragmentation of the (...)
