    Seungbae Park, Against Motivational Efficacy of Beliefs.
    Bromwich (2010) argues that a belief is motivationally efficacious in that, other things being equal, it disposes an agent to answer a question in accordance with that belief. I reply that what we are disposed to do is largely determined by our genes, whereas what we believe is largely determined by stimuli from the environment. We have a standing and default disposition to answer questions honestly, ceteris paribus, even before we are exposed to environmental stimuli. Since this standing and default (...)

  1. David Boucher, Les nouvelles technologies de surveillance et de contrôle : un défi éthique.
    La surveillance de masse peut être considérée comme un trait caractéristique des sociétés modernes. Son importance n’a d’égal que les moyens mis en place pour recueillir et amasser des renseignements. Parmi ces moyens, les nouvelles technologies de surveillance et de contrôle et surtout les manières de les déployer soulèvent un certain nombre d’enjeux éthiques qui, en avril 2008, ont fait l’objet d’un avis de la Commission de l’éthique de la science et de la technologie : Viser un juste équilibre : (...)

    Pengmin Qin, Georg Northoff, Timothy Lane & et al, GABAA Receptor Deficits Predict Recovery in Patients With Disorders of Consciousness: A Preliminary Multimodal [11C]Flumazenil PET and fMRI Study.
    Disorders of consciousness (DoC)—that is, unresponsive wakefulness syndrome/vegetative state and minimally conscious state—are debilitating conditions for which no reliable markers of consciousness recovery have yet been identified. Evidence points to the GABAergic system being altered in DoC, making it a potential target as such a marker.

  1. Dennis Vanden Auweele, Schopenhauer on Religious Pessimism.
    Schopenhauer’s bifurcation between optimistic and pessimistic religions is made, so I argue here, by means of five criteria: to perceive of existence as punishment, to believe that salvation is not attained through ‘works’, to preach compassion so as to lead towards ascetics, to manifest an aura of mystery around religious doctrines and to, at some deep level, admit to the allegorical nature of religious creeds. By clearly showing what makes up the ‘pessimism’ of a ‘pessimistic religion’, Schopenhauer’s own philosophical pessimism (...)

  2. J. Angelo Corlett & Josh Cangelosi, Atheism and Epistemic Justification.
    In a recent article in this journal, Andrew Johnson seeks to defend the “New Atheism” against several objections. We provide a philosophical assessment of his defense of contemporary atheistic arguments that are said to amount to bifurcation fallacies. This point of discussion leads to our critical discussion of the presumption of atheism and the epistemic justification of atheism.

  3. Ciro De Florio & Aldo Frigerio, In Defense of the Timeless Solution to the Problem of Human Free Will and Divine Foreknowledge.
    In this paper, we will defend a particular version of the timeless solution to the problem of divine foreknowledge and human freedom. Our strategy is grounded on a particular temporal framework, which models the flow of time and a libertarian understanding of freedom. The propositions describing a certain act by an agent have an indeterminate truth value until the agent makes her choice; therefore, they become true or false when a decision is made. In order to account for this change (...)

  4. James DiCenso, Grace and Favor in Kant’s Ethical Explication of Religion.
    This paper discusses Kant’s assessment of the religious idea of grace in relation to autonomous ethical practice. Following Kant’s own explanation of his methods and goals in interpreting religious ideas, my focus is on the ethical import of inherited religious concepts for human beings, rather than on literal theological dogmas concerning supernatural matters. I focus on how Kant’s inquiry into the ethical significance of the idea of grace is intertwined with another less recognized concept, that of favor . The latter (...)

  5. James J. DiCenso, Terry F. Godlove, Kant and the Meaning of Religion.
    Although the title of this book is misleading, Terry Godlove offers valuable insights into Kant’s approach to concept formation, and how this relates to conceptualizing religion.The book deliberately sets narrow limits to its discussion of a complex and far-ranging topic that spans most of Kant’s major writings. In six loosely-connected chapters, Godlove explores various aspects of the relation between Kant’s epistemology and the way we understand and classify religions, hence eschewing “the ‘official’ philosophy of religion,” including Kant’s own . Godlove (...)

  6. Travis Dumsday, Why Pan-Dispositionalism is Incompatible with Metaphysical Naturalism.
    Pan-dispositionalism is one of the major theories in current analytic metaphysics concerning dispositional properties and how they relate to categorical properties . According to pan-dispositionalists, all fundamental properties are dispositional in nature, such that any supposed categorical properties are either unreal or reducible in some way to the dispositional. I argue that if pan-dispositionalism is true then metaphysical naturalism is false. To the extent that one finds pan-dispositionalism a plausible theory, one ought to question the truth of metaphysical naturalism. On (...)

  7. Michael S. Jones, Does Cognitive Humility Lead to Religious Tolerance? Reflections on Craig Versus Quinn.
    We’ve all heard the familiar saying, “ignorance is bliss.” It may also be true that “ignorance is intolerant.” But it seems to be at least sometimes true that intolerance is produced by something else: overconfidence in the truthfulness of one’s own opinions. Awareness of and avoidance of such overconfidence may be a path towards tolerating those with whom one disagrees. And this could be true in religion as well as in other areas of belief. In his 2005 article “On Religious (...)

  9. Nathan D. Shannon, The Epistemology of Divine Conceptualism.
    Divine conceptualism takes all abstract objects to be propositions in the mind of God. I focus here on necessary propositions and contemporary claims that the laws of logic, understood as necessarily true propositions, provide us with an epistemic bridge to theological predication—specifically, to the claim that God exists. I argue that when contemporary versions of DC say ‘G/god’ they merely rename the notion of necessary truth, and fail to refer to God. Given that God is incomprehensible, epistemic access to the (...)

  10. Erik J. Wielenberg, Fiona Ellis, God, Value, and Nature.
    In the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle claims that just about everyone agrees that the highest good is eudaimonia while disagreeing with one another about what eudaimonia is. A similar situation exists among many contemporary philosophers: they agree that naturalism is true while disagreeing with one another about what naturalism is. By their lights, the claim that a given entity exists is worth taking seriously only if the entity in question is compatible with naturalism ; otherwise, the entity is queer or spooky (...)

    Italo Testa, Ontology of the False State. On the Relation Between Critical Theory, Social Philosophy, and Social Ontology.
    In this paper I will argue that critical theory needs to make its socio-ontological commitments explicit, whilst on the other hand I will posit that contemporary social ontology needs to amend its formalistic approach by embodying a critical theory perspective. In the first part of my paper I will discuss how the question was posed in Horkheimer’s essays of the 1930s, which leave open two options: (1) a constructive inclusion of social ontology within social philosophy, or else (2) a program (...)

    Nicholas Maxwell, Can The World Learn Wisdom.
    The crisis of our times is that we have science without wisdom. All our current global problems have arisen as a result. Learning how to become wiser has become, not a luxury, but a necessity. The key is to learn from the success of science. We need to learn from scientific progress how to achieve social progress towards a wiser world. This is an old idea that goes back to the French Enlightenment. However, in developing the idea, the philosophes of (...)

  1. Vuko Andrić, Objective Consequentialism and the Rationales of ‘ “Ought” Implies “Can”.
    This paper argues that objective consequentialism is incompatible with the rationales of ‘ “ought” implies “can” ’ – with the considerations, that is, that explain or justify this principle. Objective consequentialism is the moral doctrine that an act is right if and only if there is no alternative with a better outcome, and wrong otherwise. An act is obligatory if and only if it is wrong not to perform it. According to ‘ “ought” implies “can” ’, a person is morally (...)

    In 2009, Scott S. Reuben was convicted of fabricating data, which lead to 25 of his publications being retracted. Although it is clear that the perpetuation of retracted articles negatively effects the appraisal of evidence, the extent to which retracted literature is cited had not previously been investigated. In this study, to better understand the perpetuation of discredited research, we examine the number of citations of Reuben’s articles within 5 years of their retraction. Citations of Reuben’s retracted articles were assessed (...)

  1. Philip R. Olson, Knowing “Necro-Waste.
    Adopting a waste-directed study of the dead human body, and various practices of body preparation and body disposition in funerary contexts, I argue that necro-waste is a ubiquitous but largely unknown presence. To know necro-waste is to examine the ways in which the dead human body is embedded in particular personal, social, historical, political, and environmental contexts. This study focuses on funerary practices in the US and Canada, where embalming has been routinely practiced. Viewing dead human bodies as materials processed (...)

    Terence Rajivan Edward, Cartesian Dualism and the Study of Cultural Artefacts.
    This paper evaluates an argument according to which many anthropologists commit themselves to Cartesian dualism, when they talk about meanings. This kind of dualism, it is argued, makes it impossible for anthropologists to adequately attend to material artefacts. The argument is very original but it is also vulnerable to a range objections.

Neither beautiful technical rulings nor breaches of prosecution disclosure rules nor metadata queries nor tampered evidence would have held sway at this trial.

  1. Consuelo Corradi, Modernity and Evil: Kurt H. Wolff’s Sociology and the Diagnosis of Our Time.
    Can sociology comprehend evil? The contemporary relevance of Kurt H. Wolff’s sociology is his lucid, critical vision of modernity which does not shy away from understanding what evil is. This is accompanied not by pessimism, but by trust in human beings and their positive ability to appeal to the moral conscience. Read today, Wolff’s pages must be placed in the category of a new understanding of the human subject and the diagnosis of our time, the request for which threads in (...)

  1. Martin Kaså, A Logic for Trial and Error Classifiers.
    Trial and error classifiers, corresponding to concepts which change their extensions over time, are introduced and briefly philosophically motivated. A fragment of the language of classical first-order logic is given a new semantics, using \-sequences of classical models, in order to interpret the basic predicates as classifiers of this kind. It turns out that we can use a natural deduction proof system which differs from classical logic only in the conditions for application of existential elimination. Soundness and completeness theorems are (...)

    A época de Agostinho é marcada por várias crises que se instalaram na Sociedade Romana. Essas crises não fugiram do olhar aguçado de Santo Agostinho. Ele mostrou como a ação política de seus contemporâneos foi algo demasiadamente ineficaz para atender aos anseios de uma sociedade justa, integrada por vários povos e raças. Essa sociedade, que havia conquistado na história, com erros e acertos, poder e glória, tanto no campo da ciência como em tecnologia, para si, os meios que garantissem aos (...)

    The mystery of God’s revelation in its Trinitarian relationship has inspired a practice that goes on for more than two thousand years of history. This is Christianity, event marked by the incarnation of the Word of God, who in kenotic form, that is, emptied, reveals itself to mankind in human categories. The purpose of this research was to study the Trinitarian mystery of God from a kenotic approach, applying this model of faith to the problem of ecological crisis.

Para nós, a relação que se estabelece entre esses conceitos é uma relação de completude, paralela, e não de oposição. Através de uma argumentação teísta com base na história, filosofia, teologia e nas ciências, pretendemos (...)

A análise do contexto literário dos sumários favorece uma visão mais exata de seu conteúdo, além de uma compreensão mais integral de sua mensagem que, aliás, repercute na tradição patrística não só como valor apologético, mas como edificação da comunidade monacal e (...)
