  7. Sonia Sikka (2006). Kantian Ethics in Being and Time. Journal of Philosophical Research 31:309-334.
    Heidegger’s Being and Time has been accused of espousing empty decisionism and relativism. I argue, first, that in fact Being and Time’s stress on the situated character of human judgment is supplemented by a very Kantian account of being human that defi nes appropriate behavior towards all entities possessing a certain character.

  9. Sonia Sikka (2005). Enlightened Relativism: The Case of Herder. Philosophy and Social Criticism 31 (3):309-341.
    Johann Gottfried Herder has been described as the founder of cultural relativism within the German philosophical tradition, which would make him the starting-point for one thread in the pattern of ideas leading to the Nazi disaster. More recently, some scholars have rejected this interpretation, arguing that Herder actually supported the universalist values of the Enlightenment. I argue that Herder’s position is actually a complex, and laudable, blend of universalism and relativism. It includes: (1) the presumption of a set of basic (...)

    Cet article analyse le besoin qu’éprouvent certaines personnes de se «reconnecter», ou renforcer leurs liens, à une culture dans laquelle elles n’ont jamais été enchâssées, eu égard aux critères auxquels se mesure généralement un tel enchâssement (langue, valeurs, croyances, modes de vie, coutumes religieuses, etc.). Situant les résultats de son analyse par rapport à la pensée de Kymlicka et autres, ilfait valoir que des facteurs tels que les liens de parenté, l’identification à autrui et l’expérience du racisme déterminent largement quel (...)
