    Chandler D. Rogers (2015). From the Shadows of Mt. Moriah: Approaching Faith in Fear and Trembling. Religious Studies and Theology 34 (1):41-52.
    Johannes de Silentio, the pseudonymous author of Fear and Trembling, purports to be an individual who admires faith but cannot attain to its unearthly standards. The discontinuity between Kierkegaard, who self identified as a religious author, and de Silentio, who approaches Abraham in self-doubt, is apparent—and as a result, some have argued for an utter dissociation between these two authors. I argue that such dissociation undermines the potency of the work, especially with regard to the perspective on faith presented therein. (...)

    Korneel Van Lommel (2013). I Would Rather Cut Off My Thumb: Refusal of Military Service in Ancient Rome. Ancient Warfare Magazine 7 (2):42-46.
    In the span of just a few centuries, Rome grew from a small settlement to a large empire that extended from Scotland to Mauretania and from the Iberian Peninsula to the Caspian Sea. The Roman army was a crucial factor in establishing the empire. This may give the impression that the Romans were a warlike society, where every Roman was willing to put his life on the line. However, this ideal wrongly characterizes Roman civilization. Various sources refer to young men (...)

    Korneel Van Lommel (2013). The Recognition of Roman Soldiers' Mental Impairment. Acta Classica: Journal of the Classical Association of South Africa 56:155-184.
    This article concerns the Roman awareness of mentally impaired soldiers. A discussion of juristic writings shows that jurists distinguished various mental difficulties a soldier suffered. They even took soldiers’ mental problems into consideration when they determined the sentence for misconduct in the military. Roman literary authors also give proof of a clear insight into the soldiers’ minds and the mental toll military service took on them. With the support of archaeological evidence, several passages of Roman literature will be discussed taking (...)

    Korneel Van Lommel (2012). Spartaanse vrouwen. Mythevorming en uiteenlopende interpretaties. Historica: Tijdschrift van de Vereniging Voor Vrouwengeschiedenis 35 (2):9-13.
    Reeds in de oudheid was Sparta een geliefkoosd onderwerp van opmerkelijke en exotische verhalen. Dit kan gekaderd worden vanuit de concurrentie die deze Laconische1 stad voornamelijk van Athene ondervond en de conflicten die hieruit voortvloeiden. Atheners wilden zich onderscheiden van de Spartanen, wat ze onder meer deden door hun vijanden als excentriekelingen af te schilderen. Hierbij werd fantasie zelden geschuwd. Bovendien is het bronnenmateriaal uitsluitend geschreven door mannen, die een eenzijdig mannelijk beeld van de Spartaanse vrouwen ophingen. Aangezien vrouwen geen (...)

    This book offers, for the first time in aesthetics, a comprehensive account of aestheticism of the 19<SUP>th</SUP> century as a philosophical theory of its own right. Taking philosophical and art-historical viewpoints, this cross-disciplinary book presents aestheticism as the foundational movement of modernist aesthetics of the 20<SUP>th</SUP> century. Emerging in the writings of the foremost aestheticists - Oscar Wilde, Walter Pater, James Whistler, and their formalist successors such as Clive Bell, Roger Fry, and Clement Greenberg - aestheticism offers a uniquely synthetic (...)

    Carmela Stillitano, Listening and Voice.
    The present study originates from an ongoing research on the potential of human voice and on the possibilities of intervention afforded by the Tomatis method for the development of such potential. The discussion on vocal sonority is framed within the horizon of linguistic geography. In particular, the essay revisits Tomatis’ theory of languages in the light of more recent studies on the close relationship between linguistic background and melodic-intonation profile. The essay highlights the results of experimental research based on the (...)

    In “Flourish,” Martin Seligman maintained that the elements of well-being consist of “PERMA: positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning, and accomplishment.” Although the question of what constitutes human flourishing or psychological well-being has remained a topic of continued debate among scholars, it has recently been argued in the literature that a paradigmatic or prototypical case of human psychological well-being would largely manifest most or all of the aforementioned PERMA factors. Further, in “A Neuroscientific Perspective on Music Therapy,” Stefan Koelsch also suggested (...)

    John Corcoran (2014). Meanings of Hypothesis. Bulletin of Symbolic Logic 20 (2):348-9.
    The primary sense of the word ‘hypothesis’ in modern colloquial English includes “proposition not yet settled” or “open question”. Its opposite is ‘fact’ in the sense of “proposition widely known to be true”. People are amazed that Plato [1, p. 1684] and Aristotle [Post. An. I.2 72a14–24, quoted below] used the Greek form of the word for indemonstrable first principles [sc. axioms] in general or for certain kinds of axioms. These two facts create the paradoxical situation that in many cases (...)

    Dominique Raynaud (2009). Why Did Geometrical Optics Not Lead to Perspective in Medieval Islam? In M. Cherkaoui & P. Hamilton (eds.), Raymond Boudon: A Life in Sociology. Bardwell Press. 243-266.
    The idea that linear perspective arose only in the West due to the strength of an unusual process of rationalization is denied by the fact that IXth century Islamic scholars had yet a thorough knowledge of the optical and geometrical materials required in perspective. In addition, the process of rationalization was rarely so intense as in that time, because truth uniqueness and scientific communalism were core values of Medieval Islam. The puzzle is not a matter of less or more rationality, (...)

    Dominique Raynaud (2002). Cinq Essais sur l'architecture. Études sur la conception de projets de l'Atelier Zô, Scarpa, Le Corbusier, Pei. Harmattan.
    Définir, à partir des traces graphiques d'un projet, les actions de conception et les motivations de l'architecte à les entreprendre, voilà l'objectif de l'enquête. Quel est le rôle de la représentation dans le développement de l'idée architecturale? Comment se transforme-t-elle tout au long du projet? En fonction de quoi l'architecte décide-t-il d'altérer ou de maintenir une représentation? Telles sont les questions que ces essais tentent de résoudre en s'appuyant sur les concepts de représentation, d'inférence, de modèle et d'échelle, et en (...)

    Dominique Raynaud (1998). Architectures comparées. Essai sur la dynamique des formes. Parenthèses.
    "Toute forme a été imaginée avant d'être construite". Cette formule classique, qui met en relief l'un des traits essentiels de la pratique architecturale, soulève plusieurs questions. D'où viennent les images-mères du projet? Sont-elles encore identifiables une fois construites? Existe-t-il des procédés réguliers dans l'imagination des formes architecturales? Cette enquête tente de résoudre ces problèmes par la reconnaissance de schèmes dynamiques de l'imagination. Si le processus de conception architecturale altère les images-mères au points que certains ont pu identifier une "non figurativité" (...)

    A collaborative article by the Editorial Collective of Social Imaginaries (Suzi Adams, Paul Blokker, Natalie Doyle, John Krummel, and Jeremy Smith). Investigations into social imaginaries have burgeoned in recent years. From ‘the capitalist imaginary’ to the ‘democratic imaginary’, from the ‘ecological imaginary’ to ‘the global imaginary’ – and beyond – the social imaginaries field has expanded across disciplines and beyond the academy. The recent debates on social imaginaries and potential new imaginaries reveal a recognisable field and paradigm-in-the-making. We argue that (...)

    John W. M. Krummel (forthcoming). Nishida Kitarō's Chiasmatic Chorology: Place of Dialectic, Dialectic of Place. Indiana University Press.
    Nishida Kitarō (1870–1945) is considered Japan's first and greatest modern philosopher. As founder of the Kyoto School, he began a rigorous philosophical engagement and dialogue with Western philosophical traditions, especially the work of G. W. F. Hegel. John W. M. Krummel explores the Buddhist roots of Nishida’s thought and places him in connection with Hegel and other philosophers of the Continental tradition. Krummel develops notions of self-awareness, will, being, place, the environment, religion, and politics in Nishida’s thought and shows how (...)
