  1. John Haglund (forthcoming). The View From Somewhere - Investigations Pertaining to the Implications of the Impurity of the Third- and the First-Person-Perspective. Continental Philosophy Review.
    The old duality that eventually came to produce the mind/body-problem indicates the problem of transcendental subjectivity. The enduring significance of this problem shows itself in a provocation of any paradigm that has become too objectivistic, too naturalistic – even too idealistic in a certain sense – and too forgetful of its own departure from a perspective always presumed. Analytic philosophy bears a tendency towards such a ‘view from nowhere’ which denies a fundamental subjective connection. The rebuttal of this position (...)

    Todd S. Mei (forthcoming). Heidegger in the Machine: The Difference Between Techne and Mechane. Continental Philosophy Review:1-26.
    Machines are often employed in Heidegger’s philosophy as instances to illustrate specific features of modern technology. But what is it about machines that allows them to fulfill this role? This essay argues there is a unique ontological force to the machine that can be understood when looking at distinctions between techne and mechane in ancient Greek sources and applying these distinctions to a reading of Heidegger’s early thought on equipment and later thought on poiesis. Especially with respect to Heidegger’s appropriation (...)

  3. Jack Reynolds (forthcoming). Merleau-Ponty's Gordian Knot: Transcendental Phenomenology, Empirical Science, and Naturalism. Continental Philosophy Review.
    In this paper, I want to explore a series of fertile ambiguities that Maurice Merleau-Ponty's work is premised upon and which are of major interest to contemporary philosophy today. These ambiguities concern some of the central methodological commitments of Merleau-Ponty's work, in particular: 1. his commitment (or otherwise) to transcendental phenomenology and his renovation of that tradition; and 2. his sustained engagement with empirical sciences (on an apparently level playing-field) that seems to deny the methodological autonomy of either philosophy or (...)

    Antonio Calcagno (forthcoming). A Place for the Role of Community in the Structure of the State: Edith Stein and Edmund Husserl. Continental Philosophy Review:1-14.
    This essay argues that Stein’s view of the state can overcome Husserl’s skepticism about the state being an authentic, intense community rooted in solidarity while not negating his hope for the advent of a genuinely ethical, rational culture. Whereas Husserl places rationality and freedom within the framework of culture proper and not in the state, Stein sees the state as an extension of persons that can give the state its own free, deliberating and rational Ich kann.

    Eran Dorfman (forthcoming). Overwriting the Body: Saint-Exupéry, Merleau-Ponty, Nancy. Continental Philosophy Review:1-16.
    In this paper I examine two limit cases in which the body is threatened: the experience of emergency as described by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Flight to Arras, and the experience of illness as described by Jean-Luc Nancy in his autobiographical essay The Intruder. In the first case, the everyday relationship to the body is revealed to be illusionary; the body becomes a powerful yet obedient machine. In the second case, the everyday relationship to the body is also suspended, but this (...)

    Dino Galetti (forthcoming). Of Levinas’ ‘Structure’ in Address to His Four ‘Others’. Continental Philosophy Review:1-24.
    It has long been accepted that one of Levinas’ major concerns is to establish an ethics of responsibility for the ‘other.’ Yet it has been deemed for decades, even by Levinasians, that his approach to that concern is ‘unsystematic’ and ‘not consistent.’ That situation arose because Levinas’ four terms for ‘other’ are difficult to translate, so his terms were first addressed by adopting English conventions. Such conventions have furthered Levinas scholarship, but our aim is to consider Levinas’ consistency: Hence we (...)

    Matthew Sharpe (forthcoming). Killing the Father, Parmenides: On Lacan’s Anti-Philosophy. Continental Philosophy Review:1-24.
    This paper examines the historical claims about philosophy, dating back to Parmenides, that we argue underlie Jacques Lacan’s polemical provocations in the mid-1970s that his position was an “anti-philosophie”. Following an introduction surveying the existing literature on the subject, in part ii, we systematically present the account of classical philosophy Lacan has in mind when he declares psychoanalysis to be an antiphilosophy after 1975, assembling his claims about the history of ideas in Seminars XVII and XX in ways earlier contributions (...)

    Jasper van Buuren (forthcoming). The Philosophical–Anthropological Foundations of Bennett and Hacker’s Critique of Neuroscience. Continental Philosophy Review:1-19.
    Bennett and Hacker criticize a number of neuroscientists and philosophers for attributing capacities which belong to the human being as a whole, like perceiving or deciding, to a “part” of the human being, viz. the brain. They call this type of mistake the “mereological fallacy”. Interestingly, the authors say that these capacities cannot be ascribed to the mind either. They reject not only materialistic monism but also Cartesian dualism, arguing that many predicates describing human life do not refer to physical (...)

    Richard Westerman (forthcoming). Meaning, Memory and Identity: The Western Marxists’ Hermeneutic Subject. Continental Philosophy Review:1-24.
    The concept of the subject is at the core of many social movements that attempt to empower disadvantaged groups by identifying a basic subjectivity underlying and uniting such groups. Though otherwise supportive of such movements, recent continental philosophers and social theorists such as Althusser, Derrida, and Butler have criticized such notions of subjectivity, arguing that they presuppose false and harmful ideas of unity and substantiality as the ‘true’ essence of these groups. In this paper, I propose that one possibility for (...)
