  1. L'appropriation Critique d'Aristote Par Diodore.Ghyslain Bolduc - 2011 - Gnosis 12 (1):1-14.
    Face aux tentatives des logiciens de démontrer la validité ou l'invalidité du Maître-argument de Diodore Kronos en s'empressant de déclarer un gagnant à l'argumentaire opposant le philosophe de Mégare à Aristote, nous esquissons par ce présent article une analyse globale du dogme diodoréen qui considère l'ensemble des témoignages antiques répertoriés sur sa pensée, permettant de dresser un portait cohérent d'une pensée positive qui le plus souvent n'est considérée que de façon éristique. Cette approche permet de mettre en lumière les assises (...)

    In Volume I of Works of Love, Kierkegaard condemns preferential, “earthly” love and extols the virtues of impartial, “Christian” love. Yet he claims that his vision of Christianity leaves room for earthly relationships in their full richness. Controversy over this claim is longstanding, but a number of contemporary scholars have come to Kierkegaard’s defense. In what follows, I attempt to counter this trend. I do so by criticizing a scholar who I take to be one of Kierkegaard’s most persuasive apologists (...)

  3. Nondiscrimination and the Human Right to Democracy.Tara Myketiak - 2011 - Gnosis 12 (1):30-40.
    In his recent book, The Idea of Human Rights, Charles Beitz claims that we should reject the human right to democracy in favour of the less demanding right to collective self-determination. On this account, citizens are entitled to basic civil and political rights, and their interests are represented by a hierarchical regime that defers to a conception of the common good in decision-making processes. However, this claim undermines his subsequent defense of the human right to nondiscrimination, because systematically enforced political (...)

  4. Introduction Approfondie Ą l'Esthétique de Jacques Rancičre.Stéphane Roy-Desrosiers - 2011 - Gnosis 12 (1):41-56.
    This article aims to introduce the reader to the aesthetics of Jacques Rancière. By examining his latest publications and papers – Le Partage du sensible, L’Inconscient esthétique and Le Spectateur émancipé – we shall shed light on some key concepts of his thought, such as “Le Partage du sensible” and “Dissensus”, and explain how they are linked to the different regimes of artistic expression that Rancière identifies in his work as the ethic regime, the representational regime and the aesthetic regime (...)

  6. Getting Stuffy in Here: The Problem of Coincident Objects.Michel-Antoine Xhignesse - 2011 - Gnosis 10 (2).
    I argue that the coincidence of statue and matter is a special case of a common linguistic phenomenon: the use of partitive terms to individuate uses of non-count nouns (NCNs). By marking partitives and NCNs, we can easily account for the intuition that a statue and its matter are identical.
