  1. Richard J. Colledge (2014). Rethinking Disagreement: Philosophical Incommensurability and Meta-Philosophy. Symposium 18 (2):33-53.
    Set in the context of the current interest among Analytic philosophers in the “epistemology of disagreement,” this paper explores the meta-philosophical problem of philosophical incommensurability. Motivated by Nietzsche’s provocative remark about philosophy as prejudices and desires of the heart “sifted and made abstract,” the paper first outlines the contours of the problem and then traces it through a series of examples. Drawing largely on the tradition of phenomenology and philosophical hermeneutics, a broadly Continental response to this formidable problem is suggested. (...)

  2. Richard J. Colledge (2013). Secular Spirituality and the Hermeneutics of Ontological Gratitude. Sophia 52 (1):27-43.

  4. Richard J. Colledge (2004). Kierkegaard's Subjective Ontology. International Philosophical Quarterly 44 (1):5-22.
    In the context of the contemporary emergence of a “postmodern Kierkegaard,” I take issue with the idea that Kierkegaardian thought involves an anti-essentialist rejection of ontology. I argue that Kierkegaard’s keynote existential analysis is paralleled by, if not tacitly set within, a less developed yet explicit ontology of human being. This “subjective ontology” is at once an ontology of the existing subject and a subjectization of ontology. Thus, the essay has two aims. First, I seek to revive and advance debate (...)
