  2. Le Soi Comme « Oeuvre D’Art ».Petru Bejan - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):422-430.
    More and more aesthetic projects seek to converge art with real life, up to becoming coincident. The expressions 'art of living', 'art as way of life', 'to live artistically' illustrate precisely such an overlap. The body can be an interface in relation to the others, but also the instrument by which we can gain our confidence and self-esteem. This is the context in which Richard Schusterman speaks of 'the self as a work of art'. 'The somaesthetics', in the form promoted (...)

    On Formativity: Art as Praxis.Gaetano Chiurazzi - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):410-421.
    Luigi Pareyson’s concept of formativity is one of his most relevant and original concepts. In this paper I will give a short exposition of this concept in Pareyson’s Estetica and try to show how it can account, better as other object-, subject-, target- oriented theories, even of some features of contemporary art. The very relevant innovation that we can find in this concept is the shift from a concept of art as poiesis—as it is in Aristotle, namely, as a production (...)

    Being and Metaphysics: A Hegelian Critique of Heidegger’s Phenomenological Voluntarism.Emanuel Coplias - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):373-409.
    Hegel and Heidegger are leading figures of modern philosophy, but their interpretation of being, metaphysics, truth, ontology, epistemology, dialectic, alienation and art, among other central questions of philosophy, are radically different. Taking these aspects into account, my paper tries to dismiss Heidegger’s critiques towards Hegel arguing that, from the point of view of 20th century phenomenology, and although using a dissimilar philosophical vocabulary, Hegel was rather a phenomenologist than a metaphysician. Not only that: in many respects, Heidegger’s Dasein toys with (...)

    Les Limites de la Discursivité : « Honorer Par le Silence » Chez Maxime le Confesseur.Florin Crismareanu - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):586-600.
    Maximus the Confessor granted in his works a certain attention to the issue of silence. The majority of the researchers that interpret the Maximian writings, especially, E. Michaud, V. Grumel and H.U. von Balthasar, have approached the theme of silence by referring to the difficult issue of the apocathastasis. Recently, C. Boudignon discusses about silence as tightly related to the Maximian exegesis. In this study I aim to highlight the interpretations of modern scholars in order to show, on one hand, (...)

    China as Superpower: A Super-Vision of Power?Alin Cristian - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):473-494.
    One wonders whether or not, as alternative to an American-style use of power considered too intimidating, and as such counterproductive, China’s productive fervor means in fact to revamp the old idea that there are, after all, happy slaves despite an overrating of freedom spread globally by the West. To the libertarian ideology claiming that freedom is worth the highest sacrifice, China can be perceived as opposing the naturalism of the wu wei doctrine: avoid confrontation whenever possible and live within your (...)

    Aurel Codoban – an Existential Stylist: From Desire to Love as Communication Instrument.Sandu Frunza - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):568-585.
    Philosophical counseling proves to be today among the most complex intervention forms in the postmodern individual’s daily life. Aurel Codoban, existential stylist, proposes a way to interpret and act in the existential field. He starts from the premise that philosophy must propose a way of life. He takes on a philosophical practice that builds an ontology of detail in which the fundamental element in the human condition definition is no longer rationality but desire. As existential stylist, the philosopher elicits in (...)

    Small Talk in Our Digital Everyday Life: The Contours of a Phatic Culture.Camelia Gradinaru - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):459-472.
    This paper focuses on the present trend in media use that emphasises the social connection over the content of the speech. Small communicative processes and indexical gestures are numerous especially in the digital area and they are symptomatic for the category of phatic communication. The article explains the concept of “phatic”, from Malinowski and Jakobson to the contemporary approaches that propose terms such as “phatic technologies” and “phatic systems”. Also, revisiting Heidegger’s arguments on the concept of “idle talk”, we grasp (...)

    The aim of my article is to observe the way in which the concept of hierarchy may be applied and understood from the philosophical writings of Bonaventure of Bagnoregio in a twofold manner as mainly applied to the created world, but also as a reference to the faculties of the human soul dealing with both intellectual and moral knowledge. The assumed perspective shall be treated from the point of psychological voluntarism assumed by the philosopher in asserting a primate of will (...)

    The Ground of Experience: Implications in the Constitution of Judgments in Husserl’s Phenomenology.Marcio Junglos - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):333-352.
    This research will attain mainly in the work of Husserl called Experience and Judgment. This book traces the possibility of a common ground for judgments in the way that it can raise new perspectives, facing its limits and variations. Husserl fosters an implication between the Ego and the world through the living experience in the process of constitution itself. Therefore, every abstraction, imagination, subjectivity, objectivity and even hallucinations take a stand on the same ground and follow some same identic logical (...)

    The article aims to reveal the features of how the ideas of the end of history and post-history influence the contemporary political process. The adherents to the concept of the end of history, while considering the collapse of authoritarianism and totalitarianism and the withdrawal of any alternatives to liberalism from the historical scene, ignore the deep crisis of the liberal ideology and liberal-democratic regimes. The main fallacy of the adherents of the end of history and the post-history concepts is the (...)

    Ideological Diversity and Cognitive Difficulties.Bogdan-Constantin Mihailescu & Silviu-Petru Grecu - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):540-567.
    In the last decades we can observe a large number of ideological changes and hybridizations. In the same time, it has also been developed a new academic field reserved for researching the political ideologies. Nevertheless, a large number of the papers, dedicated to this study, announce the theme of the end of the ideologies. Even if, in the monistic meaning of the term, the ideology lost its legitimacy and postmodernism has abandoned the hard thinking, political ideologies still remain an evident (...)

    The paper analyses the interaction-loneliness in the context of shifts in the personalistic identity meanings triggered by the development of the information and communication technologies. The theoretical framework of the research is Bakhtin's existential theory of meaning that allows to apply the method of existential analytics. It is aimed to reveal the meanings of human existence in alienated contexts getting increasingly complicated. The research identifies the connection between the extensive development of the information and communication technologies and the changes in (...)

    This paper explores the intellectual and the biographical relationship between Georg Simmel and Max Scheler. This topic has been examined through correspondences, direct and indirect references, as well as investigations in the Munich Archive. Simmel and Scheler lived in Berlin in the early twentieth century, so they shared the German Jahrhundertwende “Zeitgeist” and many fascinations, anxieties, hopes, and feelings. Scheler was Simmel’s pupil in 1895, but they were destined to meet again and again. Simmel attended some of Scheler’s lectures as (...)

    The Theory of Contractual Monarchy in the Works of the Huguenot Monarchomachs.Andrei Constantin Salavastru - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):512-539.
    The French Wars of Religion were often characterized in historiography as a revolutionary period, when some very advanced political theories were put forward by the parties in conflict. Some historians spoke of the existence of a form of popular sovereignty in many of the political writings produced during that time, where different constitutional mechanisms for restraining the powers of the monarchy were imagined. The first to propose such theories were the Huguenot theorists, especially those which would gain fame as the (...)

    The problem of embodiment and that of the constitution of the lived body are central to the Husserlian phenomenology. Husserl’s endeavor to develop a theory of intersubjectivity and his attempt to avoid the solipsistic conundrum depend on his ability to solve the riddle of embodiment. Nevertheless, Husserl struggled until the late thirties to find an adequate account of the constitution of the body, without much success. In this paper I try to show with the help of Merleau-Ponty, Derrida and Figal (...)

    Réduction Et Subjectivation Chez Theodor Celms.Denis Seron - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (2):295-316.
    The work of the Latvian phenomenologist Theodor Celms provides an interesting attempt to reinterpret Husserl’s phenomenological reduction in terms of Natorp’s subjectivation. This paper summarizes in broad outline some salient features of Celms’ theory of subjectivation and discusses some of its similarities and differences with Husserl’s and Natorp’s views. I focus on two more central points. First, Celms proposes to interpret Husserlian reduction as radicalizing or generalizing an operation of thought that is pervasive throughout all forms of cognition. Secondly, he (...)

    For such refined idealists as Schopenhauer, Husserl and Wittgenstein, the correlation between the world and the subject must be recognized. Furthermore, the three commonly emphasize the distinction between the transcendental subject and the empirical subject as well as the distinction between the subject and object’s mode of being. They all realized that the confusion of the transcendental subject and the empirical subject causes the paradox of that the subject as one part of the world is at the same time the (...)

    Oneiric Foundations of Philosophy: Saint Augustine.Anton Adamut - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (1):188-195.
    The aim of my article is to highlight the way in which dreams have influenced or prefigured Saint Augustine’s conversion to Christianity. Starting from the autobiographical writing Confessions Augustine is paradigmatic in developing what may be defined as “an oneiric autobiography”. In Christianity dreams have been associated with heresy being subject of demonic influence, in this sense, what is revealed in a dream should be treated with utmost caution. Augustine’s perspective shows that dreams may have a different significance; they might (...)

    The article analyses the main characteristics of dialogue seen as a political dimension of language starting from Eric Weil and Hannah Arendt. The importance of the topic is given by the difficulties of political debates that deal with the existential problems of people who live in multicultural and multi-religious societies. Our choice for Arendt and Weil finds justification in the genuine effort made by the two philosophies to turn dialogue into the true condition of possibility for political action. For this (...)

    The human intellect has the capacity to assimilate the external world to man. This assimilation takes place according to the proper mode of the intellect that has an intentional manner to know. Thus is realized the act of knowing by which man manages to read from within the different realities, according to the etymology of the Latin word intellectus. Yet the intellect is not the only spiritual capacity of man, but there is also the will. The latter has a special (...)

    This essay presents a preliminary theoretical development that attempts the importation of Heider’s Theory of Balance into the domain of narratology. Heider’s elemental POX structure offers ways to complement Affective Disposition Theory, opening the possibility for generating technical descriptions of easily recognizable but also subtle experiential aspects of the processing of narrative products. Traditional concepts like open-endings, focalization or identification will be productively revisited after considering the notions of narrative balance and narrative imbalance. A network approach to affect distribution throughout (...)

    In this article, we highlight the importance of psychoanalysis and the Heideggerian concept of ‘place’ for each respective domain of inquiry. In particular, the writings of Jung and Lacan can unconceal and reveal new dimensions of Jeff Malpas’s work on place. Alternatively, Malpas can extend the work of these psychoanalysts by showing new dimensions of their ideas through an analysis of ‘place’. Ultimately, this article sets up a number of possibilities for future research through this novel interaction and engagement between (...)

    Putnam’s Argument That the Claim That We Are Brains-in-a-Vat is Self-Refuting.Richard McDonough - 2018 - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy 10 (1):149-159.
    In Reason, Truth and History, Putnam provides an influential argument for the materialist view that the supposition that we are all “actually” brains in a vat [BIV’s] is “necessarily false”. Putnam admits that his argument, inspired by insights in Wittgenstein’s later views, is “unusual”, but he is certain that it is a correct. He argues that the claim that we are BIV’s is self-refuting because, if we actually are BIV’s, then we cannot refer to real physical things like vats. Although (...)

    During these last decades a category of performative has polarized the problematic articulations between the analysis of power and the theory of discourse. This article starts from Deleuze and Guattari’s criticism of one of its sources, namely Émile Benveniste’s theory of enunciation. We aim at reconstructing a heuristic contrast between two borderline cases of speech acts, enlightening and contesting, in two opposite ways, the discursive-institutional presuppositions of standard pragmatics: the Leninist revolutionary slogan, the rumour in M of Fritz Lang. These (...)

    The paper discusses the possibility of applying Heidegger’s considerations on art to the problematic and multifaceted field of contemporary art. The questions of origin and essence, which we are accustomed to refer to the metaphysical tradition, take on new significance by connecting art not to beauty, but to truth. In this epochal change of position, we can find the identity of contemporary art, which reveals itself not by offering edifying meanings, but by indicating a horizon of comprehensibility in which we (...)

    The hermeneutics of facticity, which constituted a part of the prehistory of Heidegger’s thinking before Being and Time, has itself also a prehistory, which is manifest in the investigation of the early Freiburg lectures. The central question here is how the non-theoretical access to the factual life and its movement is possible. Accordingly, Heidegger develops three conceptions one after another in his lectures: The original science of factual life in and of itself, the categorial explication of factual life and finally (...)
