    Imagination, Perception and Memory. Making (Some) Sense of Walton’s View on Photographs and Depiction.Paloma Atencia-Linares - 2017 - Azafea: Revista de Filosofia 19:251-268.
    Walton has controversially claimed that all pictures are fiction because, in seeing a picture one imagines that one is seeing the depicted content in the flesh; and that in seeing a photograph one _literally – _although indirectly – _sees_ the photographed object. Philosophers have found these claims implausible for various reasons: it is not the case that all pictures are fiction; explaining depiction does not require an imaginative engagement and seeing objects in photographs is not tantamount to seeing the object.

  4. Art as a Self-Denial of Technique.Félix Duque - 2017 - Azafea: Revista de Filosofia 19:29-61.
    Nowadays, the question about the possibility of speaking about “art” in the context of a massive evolution of audiovisual technologies, and their comprehensive influence in a globalized world, is at stake. In this sense, contemporary art, despite its similarities with technique’s modus operandi, does not work with the goal to facilitate humankind access to natural and artificial resources. On the contrary, art fosters the viewing of the indisposition, opacity and retractability of those very same materials of which the works are (...)

    Arguments of Stability in the Study of Morphogenesis.Sara Franceschelli - 2017 - Azafea: Revista de Filosofia 19:117-135.
    Arguments of stability, intended in a wide sense, including the discussion of the conditions of the onset of instability and of stability changes, play a central role in the main theorizations of morphogenesis in 20th century theoretical biology. The aim of this essay is to shed light on concepts and images mobilized in the construction of arguments of stability in theorizing morphogenesis, since they are pivotal in establishing meaningful relationships between mathematical models and empirical morphologies.

    Thomas Aquinas and Philosophy: An Interpretation About His Commentary to Peter Lombard: Book 1, Q.1, A.1.José María Mendoza - 2017 - Azafea: Revista de Filosofia 19:201-219.
    This study examines the essence of philosophy by Fray Tomas from the distinction between philosophy, physics and theology like has been shown in the book 1, q. 1 a. 1 of Commentary on the Peter Lombard’ Sentences. That distinction intends to define the boundaries between those different disciplines. In this task to specify the limits and distinctions between sciences, it’s become manifest the interrelationship between rational thinking and lighting by faith, from which it seems that the philosophy can be affected (...)

    Lichens and Galls. Two Families of Chimeras in the Space of Form.Alessandro Minelli - 2017 - Azafea: Revista de Filosofia 19:91-105.
    Galls are produced by the interaction between a plant and a different kind of organism, commonly an insect. Many galls, especially those involving an insect, have a very specific and often complex shape, comparable to the specific and often complex shape of organisms capable of reproduction. Galls, however, do not reproduce –each individual gall takes origin from a new interaction between the plant and the external agent. To some extent, the same applies to lichens: the specific and sometimes complex structure (...)

    We Never Know What Pain is Able to Do. On Merleau-Ponty’s Analysis of the Phantom-Limb Experience.Luís António Umbelino - 2017 - Azafea: Revista de Filosofia 19:187-199.
    Beginning with the uncanny case of phantom pain, as it is experienced, for example, by the amputee, and taking in consideration M. Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenological descriptions and inputs on the subject, in this paper we aim to meditate on the nature and way of being of our complex corporality. Our perspective will be developed along the phenomenological analysis of the phantom limb experience, as it allows us to sketch a precise and detailed approach to the phantasmagorical way of being of the (...)

  9. The Melancholic and the Choleric: Two Kind of Emotional Intellectuality.María Josefa Ros Velasco & Benjamín Larrión Rández - 2017 - Azafea: Revista de Filosofia 19:221-249.
    In this paper, we will conduct a reformulation of the means of emotional representation in intellectuals according to the principles of cognitivism, searching for the existence of an emotional archetype distinct from the classical _melancholic_: the _choleric_. In both cases, we look to explore the emotions related to the melancholic and choleric temperament and propose a link between multiple sociological theories of knowledge, before ending with a reinterpretation of the famous metaphor of the bee and the spider as representations of (...)

    Perspectives on a New Morphology. Presentation.Federico Vercellone - 2017 - Azafea: Revista de Filosofia 19:19-27.
    Raising questions about the topical interest of the morphological perspective today, more than two hundred years after Goethe first introduced it, has a precise and wide ranging significance. It means asking ourselves if and how the relationship between form and image as postulated by Goethe still makes sense today.

    Images, Morphology and Metaphors in Biomedical Research.Paolo Vineis - 2017 - Azafea: Revista de Filosofia 19:107-115.
    Some of the key discoveries of the last two centuries of biomedical research can be represented through a sequence of influential images that were originally powerful metaphors. Metaphor, as a model of proposition that includes the two extreme types of diaphor and epiphor, can serve the purpose of representing knowledge in a dynamic way. Metaphors are images, and therefore they have an intrinsic morphological component but of a special kind: ambiguous. The idea, originally suggested by Wittgenstein and then elaborated by (...)
