    Eric Thomas Weber (2015). Lessons From America's Public Philosopher. Journal of Speculative Philosophy 29 (1):118-135.
    This article argues for a definition of public philosophy inspired by John Dewey’s understanding of the “supreme intellectual obligation.” The first section examines five strong reasons why more public philosophy is needed and why the growing movement in public philosophy should be encouraged. The second section begins with a review of common understandings of public philosophy as well as some initial challenges that call for widening our conception of the practice. Then, it applies Dewey’s argument in “The Supreme Intellectual Obligation” (...)

    Gary Hatfield (2015). Radical Empiricism, Critical Realism, and American Functionalism: James and Sellars. Hopos: The Journal of the International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science 5 (1):129-53.
    As British and American idealism waned, new realisms displaced them. The common background of these new realisms emphasized the problem of the external world and the mind-body problem, as bequeathed by Reid, Hamilton, and Mill. During this same period, academics on both sides of the Atlantic recognized that the natural sciences were making great strides. Responses varied. In the United States, philosophical response focused particularly on functional psychology and Darwinian adaptedness. This article examines differing versions of that response in William (...)

    Cheryl Misak (2015). Klein on James on the Will to Believe. Hopos: The Journal of the International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science 5 (1):118-28.
    This commentary explores the disagreement between Alex Klein and Cheryl Misak about the core insights of American Pragmatism, against a background of agreement. Both take the history of early American pragmatism to be a vital part of the history of analytic philosophy, not a radical break with it. But Misak argues that James seeks to loosen the usual epistemic standards so that religious and scientific belief can both be justified by a unitary set of evidentiary rules, and Klein argues that (...)

    Wellington Amâncio Da Silva & Feliciano José Borralho de Mira (2015). Zizek e a violência da linguagem-O caso Charlie Hebdo como adormecimento do espaço simbólico dos sujeitos [Doi: 10.15440/arf. 2014.22995]. Aufklärung: Revista de Filosofia 2 (1):p--105.
    Neste paper analisamos o conceito de violência subjetiva e violência objetiva (violência “simbólica” da linguagem) a parti de Žižek (2014), tendo com contexto o caso Chalie Hebdo aqui brevemente investigado a partir de suas charges como instrumento de racionalidade dos instintos. Tal foi desenvolvida por meio dos conceitos de violência aqui apresentados. Como paradigma dessa racionalidade, buscamos inferir o animal político de Aristóteles (1998) em vista da sua similaridade nas representações do homem em Hobbes (2003), a partir dos acontecimentos acima (...)
