- The Myths of Brexit.John Cromby - 2019 - Journal of Community and Applied Social Psychology 29 (1):56-66.Cassirer's notion of myth and Langer's process philosophy are used to provide a novel perspective upon how feelings were both expressed and organised in the Brexit referendum, showing how multiple, overlapping organisations of feelings created a set of emergent rationalities. Political parties and campaigns, the media, and lived experience serve as analytic foci, and various feelings are identified. It is concluded that the result was largely rational on its own terms and that understanding this is central to the social psychology (...)No categories

- Let's Get Real: New Continental Philosophy's Methodological Imperative.Amanda Earley - forthcoming - Consumption Markets and Culture.This paper elucidates the implications of the ontological turn within continental philosophy for social researchers. In my literature review, I focus on the work of Žižek, Badiou, and Ferraris, and I identify three challenges which we must address. First, their work demands increasingly realist approaches to social research. Building on this, the second challenge is to find a methodology which can serve this realist approach; here, I argue that critique of the critical theory tradition is most appropriate. The third and (...)No categories

- Connecting Contexts: A Badiouian Epistemology for Consumer Culture Theory.Amanda J. Earley - unknownThis essay is a response to Askegaard and Linnet’s : 381–404) call for a greater epistemological plurality within consumer culture theory. The article begins with a brief review of what these authors refer to as the dominant existential–phenomenological perspective and their Morinian alternative and then presents contemporary political philosophy as another alternative. Political philosophy has experienced quite a renaissance in recent years, and the school of thought has inspired major epistemological and ontological interventions throughout the academy. Here, I provide a (...)

- Philosophy and Language Testing.N. Glenn Fulcher - unknownFor the purpose of this chapter, philosophy will be seen as the study of the beliefs that we have about the world, and the use of rational argument and evidence in the formulation and support of those beliefs. In recent years it has been widely argued that language testing exists in a social context and that language assessment practices and test use can be understood only in terms of the exercise of power. This position is based on a particular view (...)
- Realism and Anti-Realism.Philip Pearson - unknownMichael Dummett has proposed a means of characterising a range of traditional philosophical disputes. This method is intended to highlight the similarities which exist between these disputes and by this means to facilitate their solution. Within the characterisation each dispute is regarded as a conflict between proponents of different theories of meaning. This proposed characterisation, its validity and usefulness, form the main topic of consideration within this thesis. An exposition of the realist/anti-realist characterisation is presented which attempts to summarise the (...)
- 'I Sweat the Flavor of Tin': Labor Activism in Early Twentieth-Century Bolivia. [REVIEW]Joseph Choonara - 2012 - Historical Materialism 20 (3):145-158.Robert L. Smale’s work looks in detail at the origins of Bolivia’s labour movement in the tin mines of the early 20th century. This provides a good starting point for an account of the rapid rise of Trotskyism in the period leading up to the national revolution of 1952, a phenomenon described in detail in S. Sándor John’s book. Sándor John’s work in particular is important in understanding both the strengths and limitations of the Trotskyist POR, which was not able (...)No categories
