  1. Kant, Providence, and the 'Guarantee' of Progress.John William Tate - unknown
    Kant’s conception of providence is often thought to occupy an anomalous position relative to his critical philosophy. Scholars have differed on whether it is consistent or inconsistent with his wider philosophical position. This article seeks to provide an explanation of Kant’s desire to view human history in terms of providence – and argues this arises both as a result of his Enlightenment commitments and his previous commitment to theodicy. It also considers the question of whether Kant’s postulation of providence is (...)

  2. Introduction 1: Philosophy and the Perils of Progress.Russell Blackford - 2017 - In Russell Blackford & Damien Broderick (eds.), Philosophy's Future: The Problem of Philosophical Progress. Wiley-Blackwell. pp. 1-12.
    Philosophy proceeds, supposedly, by way of rational inquiry and argument, yet, as Jonathan Glover has written, “philosophers persistently disagree” to such an extent that the “apparent lack of clear progress or of a body of established results is an embarrassment”. To outside observers, this may appear puzzling. Even professional philosophers sometimes worry about their discipline’s lack of consensus, continuing disagreement on standards and methods, and increasingly fragmented, hyperspecialized state of play. Though philosophy hesitates to speak with one voice, it can (...)

  3. 'A Brutal Blow Against the Democratic Normality': Unlearning the Epistemology of the Political.Jim Jose - 2017 - Social Identities 23 (6).
    The objective of this paper is to rethink our understanding of ‘the political’ through an examination of two novels by José Saramago, _Blindness_ and _Seeing_. Both novels tackle directly a central, if not the central, signature metaphor of Western political thought, namely that of ‘seeing the light’. This metaphor takes many forms and recurs throughout the tradition of Western political philosophy as a source, legitimiser, and validator of knowing, and perhaps even a guarantor of knowledge. In particular, this metaphor has (...)

  4. Reoccupying the Political: Transforming Political Science.Jim Jose & Sara C. Motta - 2017 - Social Identities 23 (6).
    The papers gathered in this collection emerged from a symposium concerned with the question of the political as subject, practice and epistemology. In part, the symposium evolved from a recognition of the political struggles across the globe that are reoccupying the political. Examples of these re-occupations include Occupy in the USA, los Indignados in Spain and the Movimento sem Terra in Brazil. Occupations of rural and urban space are creating new forms of politics and political practices involving new temporalities and (...)

  5. Science Fiction and the Moral Imagination: Visions, Minds, Ethics.Russell Blackford - 2017 - Springer.
    In this highly original book, Russell Blackford discusses the intersection of science fiction and humanity’s moral imagination. With the rise of science and technology in the 19th century, and our continually improving understanding of the cosmos, writers and thinkers soon began to imagine futures greatly different from the present. Science fiction was born out of the realization that future technoscientific advances could dramatically change the world. Along with the developments described in modern science fiction - space societies, conscious machines, and (...)

    The purpose of this book is to restore the balance by looking at the manifold ways in which teleology in antiquity was viewed. The purpose of the article is to examine a long passage in Plato's Cratylus that postulates the purposeful design of names in a purposeful universe, comparing in particular the Derveni papyrus.

  8. Plato, Feminist Philosophy, and the Representation of Culture: Butler, Irigaray, and the Embodied Subjectivity of Ancient Women.Peter Keegan - 2003 - Journal of Interdisciplinary Gender Studies 7 (1-2):90-105.
    This paper seeks first to interrogate the ways in which two contemporary feminist thinkers have appropriated and reformulated a fundamental principle of pre-modern thinking about human action and conduct. I will argue that any view on issues of essentialist and constructivist social history which Butler and Irigaray inadvertently raise must first accommodate a thoroughgoing presentation of all available evidence. The second half of this paper explores the ways in which specific representations of female identity—the gravestone of two citizens of the (...)

    In the early Roman Empire the theology of Platonist philosophers became increasingly concerned with a number of Platonic texts that appeared to offer some hope of settling debate over the kind of god that Plato had postulated. Most of these seemingly authoritative texts were drawn from what we refer to as the 'middle' and 'late' dialogues, sometimes but not always considered in context. Small snippets of relevant texts could be quoted for a variety of purposes, not least in order to (...)

This concluding article synthesises the interviews and reflects on what this project offers to early career researchers including the interviewer-authors in this issue. The contributing writers are interested in their own prospects, as well as those of the field of philosophy of education, and indeed education, and society more generally, in the context of the turbulent changes currently remodelling (...)

  12. Book 5: Proclus on the Gods of Generation and the Creation of Humans.Tarrant Harold - 2017 - Cambridge University Press.
    Proclus' Commentary on the dialogue Timaeus by Plato, written in the fifth century AD, is arguably the most important commentary on a text of Plato, offering unparalleled insights into eight centuries of Platonic interpretation. It has had an enormous influence on subsequent Plato scholarship. This edition nevertheless offers the first new translation of the work for nearly two centuries, building on significant recent advances in scholarship by Neoplatonic commentators. It will provide an invaluable record of early interpretations of Plato's dialogue, (...)

    This book moves away from the frameworks that have traditionally guided ethical decision-making in the Western clinical setting, towards an inclusive, non-coercive and, reflective dialogic approach to moral decision-making. Inspired in part by Jürgen Habermas’s discourse theory of morality and principles of communicative action, the book offers a proportionist approach as a way of balancing out the wisdom in traditional frameworks, set in the actual reality of the clinical situation at hand. Putting this approach into practice requires having a conversation, (...)

  14. Frontiers in Environmental Education: Philosophical Reflections on the Impact of Power Epistemology and Consumerist Pedagogy in Environmental Education.S. Laura Ronald & Liu Ting - 2017 - Journal of Education and Culture Studies 1 (2):164-175.
    In this paper we argue that an educational ideology, based on an epistemology of power and consumerism, has become embedded within the structural foundations of Western Education. The combination of a power-based epistemology which informs curriculum design on the one hand, coupled with a consumerist educational ideology of universal commodification on the other, have served to provide the basis for a persuasive but pernicious philosophy of nature. Virtually every relationship we have with nature, and in turn with each other, is (...)

    The following discussion is intended to suggest, if not argue, the "distinctiveness" of the theory of personal constructs in terms of the inherent and explicit interweaving of philosophy and psychology within it, and implied and encouraged by it. Limitations of space preclude acknowledgment of all those who are part of the ongoing reflection that informs the present discussion; those familiar with the theory and its literature will know who these contributors are, those not so familiar will be made so by (...)

    Given that it has been applied in so many different contexts, cosmopolitanism remains an imprecise term, and contemporary accounts of it diverge in significant ways: Kwame Anthony Appiah, for example, argues that philosophical cosmopolitanism entails both a “universal concern” for humanity and a “respect for legitimate difference”; David Held views cosmopolitanism as a necessary third term required to navigate the impasse between notions of democracy and globalism; Nikos Papastergiadis seeks to keep open politically radical conceptions of cosmopolitanism, while simultaneously agreeing (...)

    Although current environmental debates lay the focus on the Industrial Revolution as a sociopolitical development that has led to the current environmental crisis, many ecocritical projects have avoided historicizing their concepts or have been characterized by approaches that were either pre-historic or post-historic: while the environmental movement has harbored the dream of restoring nature to a state untouched by human hands, there is also the pessimistic vision of a post-apocalyptic world, exhausted by humanity’s consumption of natural resources. Against this background, (...)

  19. Human Intervention and the Safety of Complex Structural Systems.R. E. Melchers - unknown
    Structural reliability theory based on probability provides a systematic, logical and consistent means to make estimates of the safety of complex structural systems. However, its application currently leaves it open to criticism that its predictions do not necessarily compare with reality and with accepted risk criteria in other contexts. Herein, it is proposed that this is because applications have not dealt satisfactorily with the issues of human error and particularly human intervention in the management of loads and resistances. Probability-based models (...)

    Summary: Social work is a discipline that focuses on the person-in-the-environment. However, the social domains of influence have traditionally received more attention from the profession compared with the impact of the natural world on human well-being. With the development of ecological theories, and growing threats to the environment, this gap has been addressed and now the notion of eco-social work is attracting more interest. This article builds on this corpus of work by exploring, and augmenting, the thinking of the philosopher, (...)

    The Mystery of Moral Authority argues for a sceptical and pragmatic view of morality as an all-too-human institution. Searching, intellectually rigorous, and always fair to rival views, it represents the state of the art in a tradition of moral philosophy that includes Thomas Hobbes, David Hume, and J.L. Mackie.

    Conscientious Sociology is an introductory but essential step towards the recognition of paradigmatic contestations and shifts in the post-1970s Social Sciences. It develops an ideal typology of three major paradigms, i.e. the Foundationalist, the Relativist and the Critical-Conscientious Paradigms by discussing and comparing their principles in four Meta-Theoretical domains: Ontology, Epistemology, Methodology, and Axiology. Hosseini, in his book, shows how the Conscientious paradigm deals with well known dilemmas which are not effectively resolved by two other paradigms; dilemmas like how to (...)

  25. Advancing the Scholarship of Engagement: An Institutional Perspective.Sharon Douglas - unknown
    Engagement and scholarship do not always sit comfortably within the higher education institution in Australia. One cannot consider advancing, let alone redefining, the scholarship of engagement until there is a symbolic shift moving it from the periphery to the core of the university's mission. The imperative is to progress to second- and third-order issues, rather than to consistently operationalise first-order matters by merely ticking the boxes. Is the scholarship of engagement problematic because institutions are unclear about their role and do (...)

Our goal here is to make explicit the epistemological dimensions of the debate which thus far have only been implicit. It is our view that the construction of the Three Gorges Dam has been motivated by what Laura has called, (...)

    Higher education scholarship has established that enhanced student engagement leads to greater academic success, which then leads to an enriched student experience and higher student retention. These issues are arguably at the core of enabling education which prepares students to transition into degree programs.

The philosophy, called _The Cupcake Philosophy_, is grounded in the theories of transformative learning and (...)

To achieve this objective we propose a reconceptualisation of each of three ideas central to education in schools: the power of the individual child, the purposes of school education, and ‘the dominant educational epistemology of power’ operating in (...)

    Different ways by which we come to know something, are usefully applied to the pedagogy of medical education. Jürgen Habermas described three “ways” of knowing. These are empirical-analytic knowing, historical-hermeneutic knowing, and self-reflective critical knowing. These “ways” of knowing have an epistemological basis, which is able to be traced from the classical and medieval epochs of philosophical thought. Given that doctor-patient interactions have a fundamental basis in morality, the three “ways” of Habermas can be applied to the pedagogy of medical (...)

    The Judaism of the Second Temple period was not an isolated culture. Modern research shows that, as a result of the long-standing interplay of Greek, Roman and Judaic cultures, Judaism developed its thinking and practice in dialogue with its neighbours' and conquerors' cultures, though the extent of the interplay remains contentious. That interplay can be seen in the work of the Alexandrian Jewish writer, Philo, whose work is a fusion of Greek philosophy and Judaism. Platonic ideas and literature figure heavily (...)

The only slight surprise here is that Alcibiades, though he (...)

This paper argues that the Simon–Kroes model does not imply a radical separation between science and design: if we accept the Simon–Kroes model of the nature of technical artifacts and their production, then we must also accept that all (...)

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the veracity of a theoretically derived model of health that describes a non-linear trajectory of health from birth to death with available population data sets. Methods: The distribution of mortality by age is directly related to health at that age, thus health approximates 1/mortality.

  48. Marx and the Christian Logic of the Secular State.Roland Boer - unknown
    In light of the renewed debate over religion and politics, I seek some insights from Marx and Engels as a way of exploring the tensions within secularism. I am interested two of Marx’s texts: Comments on the Latest Prussian Censorship Instruction and On the Jewish Question. In the former, he argues the rather commonplace position that religion is a particular concern and that it really should have no part in the general matters of the state. However, in the latter he (...)

  49. Theo-Utopian Hearing: Ernst Bloch on Music.Roland Boer - unknown
    This study offers a critical commentary on an unjustly neglected dimension of the work of Ernst Bloch, namely, his philosophy of music. The key text is the long opening section of his Spirit of Utopia, although a number of the shorter pieces are also relevant . By critical commentary I mean an in-depth engagement this is both exposition and critical assessment, an approach that is indebted to the long tradition of biblical criticism. Briefly put, Bloch's philosophy of music is a (...)

  50. Luc Boltanski and the Problem of Time: Notes Towards a Pragmatic Sociology of the Future.Lisa Adkins - unknown
    This chapter is concerned with issues of temporality and the programme of pragmatic sociology. It outlines a problem of time operating within this programme. This problem is identified as concerning the location of social change and the new as external to situations and events, a positioning which, I will argue, eschews the indeterminacy and openness of the contemporary world. I suggest further that such a positioning of the new also cannot come to grips with forms of critique that have no (...)

    My concern is Nick Cave’s unceasing focus on death in nearly all its forms. Unlike the tendency to compartmentalize death in our modern world, to sequester the elderly into compounds known as “retirement villages,” to block death through the frenzy of consuming commoditized trash, to separate death from life, and for rock singers to favor lust and love, in all its triumphs, frustrations, and disappointments, Cave is refreshingly if at times scandalously direct. In order to seek out the permutations of (...)

    We examine the claim that design is demarcated from science by having wicked problems while science does not and argue that it is wrong. We examine each of the ten features Rittel and Weber hold to be characteristic of wicked problems and show that they derive from three general sources common to science and design: agent finitude, system complexity and problem normativity, and play analogous roles in each. This provides the basis for a common core cognitive process to design and (...)

    Rationale: The new area of health system research requires a revision of the taxonomy of scientific knowledge that may facilitate a better understanding and representation of complex health phenomena in research discovery, corroboration and implementation. Method: A position paper by an expert group following and iterative approach. Results: ‘Scientific evidence’ should be differentiated from ‘elicited knowledge’ of experts and users, and this latter typology should be described beyond the traditional qualitative framework. Within this context ‘framing of scientific knowledge’ is defined (...)

    The task of this chapter is to explore why the experience of value, especially the value of other persons, is primary in the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas. It will achieve this by developing an understanding of Levinas's oft-quoted, but widely misunderstood, idea that ethics is first philosophy and by showing how this is best grasped when the Levinasian approach to ethics is understood as optics - a way of seeing things - rather than as a systematic ethical theory or moral (...)

    In an almost hallucinogenic few pages at the close of The Time That Remains, Giorgio Agamben argues that one may trace the deep, if somewhat hidden, effect of the Apostle Paul on Benjamin's texts, texts that never mention Paul explicitly. I propose to offer a close reading of these carefully perverse pages, unpicking Agamben's arguments to see whether a very messianic Paul does indeed emerge from an equally messianic Benjamin, or whether it is an elaborate puppet play.

But it is also due to the fact that its real subject is theology. Adorno may have subtitled it Construction of the Aesthetic, but a close reading soon reveals that this study of one of (...)

    While there is strong interest in teaching values in Australia and internationally there is little focus on young children’s moral values learning in the classroom. Research shows that personal epistemology influences teaching and learning in a range of education contexts, including moral education. This study examines relationships between personal epistemologies , pedagogies, and school contexts for moral learning in two early years classrooms. Interviews with teachers and children and analysis of school policy revealed patterns of relationships between personal epistemologies and (...)

The focus of this essay is the consequences of the cognitive apparatus of complex systems for methodology, epistemology and metaphysics.

Condition-dependent laws compress and dynamical equation sets provide implicit compressed representations even when most of that information is not explicitly available without decompression. And, paradoxically, there is still the determined march of fundamental analytical dynamics expanding its compression reach toward a Theory of Everything—even while the more rapidly expanding domain of complex systems dynamics confronts its assumptions and its monolithicity. Nor does science fall (...)

The paper examines claims by various scholars including Jencks, Norberg- Schulz, (...)

The paper is not concerned with the scientific validity of the ethical architecture argument but with its form (logic, sequence, presuppositions, predicates and suppositions). (...)

According to the article, it was the reshaping of higher education that helped transform the underlying ideologies of many education journals.

    Ecoliteracy in education has its origin in Fritjof Capra’s ongoing efforts (Capra, 1977) to foster ecological awareness through K-12 education. To aim to become “ecoliterate” means getting to understand the organisational principles of ecological communities and subsequently to be able to structure human communities in accord with the same principles, especially those regarding learning communities both within and without schools. As Capra explains, ecology derives from the Greek aikos that in the broadest sense means household and represents the field of (...)

For example, the WHO defines ‘health’ as ‘a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’. However, as people get on with day-to-day living, no one can achieve the goal of ‘complete physical, mental and social well-being’. It is odd to define ‘health’ as (...)

    The paper is motivated by the desire to identify exactly what Leibniz has contributed to Deleuze and Whitehead’s particular version of vitalism. This reading of Leibniz is compared with those of Badiou. The paper compares each of these philosopher’s interpretations of the fundamental principles that ground Leibnizian monadology, with the intention of highlighting the implications of these readings for political theory. In particular, Badiou’s notion of a schema of torsion is examined and distinguished from Deleuze’s notions of actualization and realization.

    When natural time sequences were replaced by clocks, time became a measurable commodity and the ‘speedy use of time’ a virtue. In medical practice shorter consultations allow more patients to be seen, whereas longer consultations result in a better understanding of the patient and her problems. Crossing the line of time-efficiency and time-effectiveness compromises the balance between short-term turnover and long-term outcomes. The consultation has all the hallmarks of a complex adaptive system whose characteristics are not determined by the characteristics (...)

However, Nausea's view of the world as meaningless arguably reflects certain philosophical presuppositions of its own, notably a very demanding standard for what would count as being meaningful.
