    Intersections Between Paul Ricoeur’s Conception of Narrative Identity and Mikhail Bakhtin’s Notion of the Polyphony of Speech.Małgorzata Hołda - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (2):225-247.
    Proposing his conception of narrative identity in Oneself as Another, Paul Ricoeur holds that human life is comprehensible, once the story of a man’s life has actually been told, and it is the narrative of one’s life which constructs one’s identity. Developing his theory of heteroglossia and the polyphony of human speech, explicated chiefly in Speech Genres and The Dialogic Imagination, Mikhail Bakhtin recognizes the intrinsically intertwining character of utterance and response. According to him, utterance is always addressed to someone (...)

    Schmalenbach on Standing Alone Before God.Carl Humphries - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (2):157-186.
    This article explores the clarificatory potential of a specific way of approaching philosophical problems, centered on the analysis of the ways in which philosophers treat the relationship between ontological and historical forms of commitment. Its distinctive feature is a refusal to begin from any premises that might be considered “ontologistic” or “historicistic.” Instead, the relative status of the two forms of commitment is left open, to emerge in the light of more specific inquiries themselves. In this case the topic in (...)

    Omniscience, Free Will, and Religious Belief.Emmanuel Nartey - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (2):135-155.
    In this paper, I examine a standard foreknowledge argument and some interesting ways of handling it, along with some criticisms. I argue that there are philosophically interesting notions of free will that are compatible with determinism. These are the notions of free will that matter to ordinary life, and I argue that these generate a way for a philosophically interesting understanding of free will to be compatible with belief in God’s infallible foreknowledge. I discuss two key questions—the empirical question and (...)

    The Imagination in Kant and Fichte, and Some Reflections on Heidegger’s Interpretation.George J. Seidel - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (2):213-223.
    The paper deals with the meaning of the transcendental imagination in Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason, comparing it with the productive imagination proposed by Fichte in his Wissenschaftslehre of 1794. It also presents Heidegger’s views concerning both Kant and Fichte. Regarding Kant there is also a discussion of the difference between the first and second editions of the First Critique. It may be noted that Heidegger prefers the first edition to the second, since, in his view, the latter leads into (...)

    Iamblichus’ Response to Aristotle’s and Pseudo-Archytas’ Theories of Time.Sergey Trostyanskiy - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (2):187-212.
    This article aims to shed light on certain aspects of Iamblichus’ theory of time that have not been sufficiently examined to date in the scholarly literature. As of today, there are a mere handful of scholarly works tackling Iamblichus’ solutions to the paradoxes of time in particular, and his contribution to the developments of the Neoplatonic theory of the subject more generally. This article attempts to redress the lack of literature on this topic by examining Iamblichus’ response to Aristotle’s and (...)

    The Immense House of Postcards.Hanoch Ben-Pazi - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (1):43-71.
    The subject of tradition engaged both Emmanuel Lévinas and Jacques Derridainmanyoftheirwritings,whichexploreboththephilosophicalandcultural significance of tradition and the particular significance of the latter in a specifically Jewish context. Lévinas devoted a few of his Talmudic essays to the subject, and Derrida addressed the issue from the perspective of different philosophical and religious traditions. This article uses the writings of these two thinkers to propose a new way of thinking about the idea of tradition. At the core of its inquiry lie the paradigm (...)

    Transgressions: Erich Przywara, G. W. F. Hegel, and the Principle of Non-Contradiction.Ragnar M. Bergem - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (1):11-27.
    This article concerns the nature of reason in the work of the Twentieth Century Catholic theologian Erich Przywara and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. The discussion centers on three interlocking issues: The question whether proper thinking submits to or transgresses the principle of non-contradiction; The relationship between reason and history; The theological concern with distinguishing the “history of reason” and the divine life. It is argued that both Hegel and Przywara give an account of reason where there are moments of contradiction, (...)

    Reading Heidegger Through the Cross.Deborah Casewell - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (1):95-114.
    This article is concerned with how a particular concept of ontology switched from theistic to atheistic to theistic again due to the influences and disciples of Martin Heidegger. It is agreed that Heidegger took aspects of Christian thought, namely from Augustine of Hippo, Martin Luther, and Søren Kierkegaard, stripping them of their relation to God and instead orientating them to nothingness. Despite Heidegger’s methodological atheism, his ontology was taken up by a number of theologians such as Ernst Fuchs and Rudolf (...)

    Historicity and Christian Life-Experience in the Early Philosophy of Martin Heidegger.Anna Jani - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (1):29-41.
    In his early Freiburg lectures on the phenomenology of religious life, published as his Phenomenology of Religious Life, Heidegger sought to interpret the Christian life in phenomenological terms, while also discussing the question of whether Christianity should be construed as historically defined. Heidegger thus connected the philosophical discussion of religion as a phenomenon with the character of the religious life taken in the context of factical life. According to Heidegger, every philosophical question originates from the latter, which determines such questions (...)

    From Ontology to Ontologies to Trans-Ontology.Anthony L. Smyrnaios - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (1):73-93.
    This paper describes the implications of the transition from Ontology conceived as fundamental metaphysical logos to ontologies construed as postmodern historical applications of this, and then, finally, to Trans-Ontology as the ultimate, futuristic innovation of Transhumanism. If modernity counts as the key shift that has occurred in our living and understanding of the world since the dawn of history, postmodernism seems to be the record of a transition from the absolute Grand Narratives of modernity to a scenario consisting of polycentric, (...)
