    The Modal 'Can' and Material Impication.Alex Blum - 2014 - Annales Philosophici 7:9-10.
    We fine tune the distinction between the possible and what can be, mention some of the consequences and argue that the difference between material and logical implication is that of between what can be and what could have been.

  2. Aestethic Reasoning- The Rehabilitation of the Non-Identical.Anca Curpaş - 2014 - Annales Philosophici 7:11-24.
    The approach of the present paper is settled by the premise that we can no longer pretend that the assumptions of the Enlightenment set the rules for all rationality. The original contribution of the Frankfurt School philosopher, Theodor W. Adorno is firstly examined in his critique of the “enlightened” bequeathal of exclusionary epistemologies, an analysis which culminates with his account of the alternative “aesthetic understanding”. From this moment on, the working hypothesis is that art functions as a legitimate form of (...)

  3. A Religious Belief.Peter Genco & Alex Blum - 2014 - Annales Philosophici 7:25-25.
    We discuss some of the consequences of the belief that while God keeps His promises under every possible circumstance He can nevertheless break them. One interesting consequence is that no proof is possible for the proposition that God keeps His promises. We also point out that for this believer, necessity and possibility cannot be reformulated as truth in all and some possible worlds, respectively.

  4. Post-Foundationalism of Laclau and Oakeshott: Politics of Faith, Scepticism and Populism.Halil Gurhanli - 2014 - Annales Philosophici 7:26-37.
    This article critically engages with Laclauian theory of populism by utilizing Michael Oakeshott’s theory of politics. It argues that both build their works on similar post-foundationalist premises, accepting once the impossibility of a final ground of society as well as the possibility of its contingent political foundations. It then shows that both scholars conceptualise politics residing on a continuum between what they consider as two theoretical extremes: politics of faith and scepticism for Oakeshott, pure populism and pure institutionalism for Laclau.

  5. On How to Devalue Journals.Dan Pătroc - 2014 - Annales Philosophici 7:5-9.
    In this follow-up of my previous article, I continue to analyze and describe the current situation of academic publishing in Romania, but this time I plan to take a closer look at the status of academic journals. While one could be impressed by the current proliferation of this type of publications, we must be aware that this also unavoidably brings inflation in this field and, as a predictable consequence, a lack of genuine interest for the matters published in these journals. (...)

  7. Deficits in Some Theories of Democracy and Political Participation in Nigeria: A Philosophical Reflection.Philip Ogo Ujomu & Felix O. Olatunji - 2014 - Annales Philosophici 7:49-58.
    This paper addresses the problem of the strategies and theories of democratic participation in Nigeria that breeds institutional marginality and bad governance due to shortfalls in pursuing the values of justice and empowerment as core democratic characteristics. The same democratic principles such as voting, parliament, constitution, judiciary, that are suggestive of gains such as responsible use, and peaceful transfer of power may not have translated fully into sociopolitical empowerment for responsibility and representation in the evolving democratic practice in Nigeria due (...)
