  1. Notas Antivirales.Juan Cristóbal Castro - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (57):13-26.
    SARS-CoV-2, more than a host, is an intruder, an intruder with unimaginable power: it enters our tissues, weakens our immune system and damages our lungs and respiration. But it is a creature that has entered our social imagination before: our fears, reflections, information and speculations. Its "ghostly" character is now inserted not only as a form of threat to life itself, but as a poison that seeks to undermine the Aristotelian zoon politikón. The intruder lurks both in the biological dimension (...)

    Virtudes Teóricas En Tiempos de Pandemia: La Simplicidad Contra Las Teorías de la Conspiración.Ricardo Da Silva - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (57):85-116.
    The turbulent times we live in, product of the COVID-19 pandemic, creating an ideal breeding ground for the proliferation of myths and conspiracy theories. These myths and theories are often popular on social media, defended by irresponsible politicians and published by the media in search of ratings or likes. But none of these meet the theoretical virtues that a good scientific theory should enjoy, in particular, none of these conspiracy theories about the disease caused by the SARS CoV-2 virus has (...)

  3. El Arte Sanador En Tiempos de Confinamiento.Nahir Hurtado - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (57):147-159.
    The article presents a reflection on the notion of art as an expression of emotions. The aesthetic theory of Nietzsche and Collingwood explores how art transforms the artist as the work is created. Notions that are in line with the art therapy, method proposed by twentieth century psychology, where art becomes a mechanism for transforming and healing the individual by exploring emotions and raising awareness of the internal world. Self-exploration through art allows the development of artistic creativity and self-reflection in (...)

  4. La Pandemia Por COVID-19 Como Acontecimiento: Una Revisión Crítica Del Enfoque Posmarxista.Héctor Jiménez Esclusa - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (57):27-50.
    This essay studies the COVID‑19 pandemic as an instance of the concept of the event used by post-Marxist thought. Due to this premise, the article presents three sections: 1) the event concept in the post-Marxist thinking, 2) the COVID‑19 pandemic as a post-Marxist event, and 3) the pandemic as a virtual event. Such an essay requires a concept of the event. It is defined in this context as a phenomenon without causal explanation but with the capacity to explain, at least (...)

  5. ¿Puede El Miedo a la COVID-19 Convertirse En Un Hábito? Una Respuesta a Partir de la Suma Teológica de Tomás de Aquino.María Guadalupe Llanes - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (57):117-146.
    Is it possible that fear becomes a habit? A habit thought from two points of view: that of a particular person who gets used to living in fear and processes everything through it, or that of a social group that is, because of fear, subject to a government, which it would lead entire populations to a state of docility or domestication. In this essay, I will explain Aquinate’s position on the subject, and specifically on Summa Theologica. To do this, I (...)

  6. ¿Es Posible Comprender Hermenéuticamente a la Naturaleza? Una Aproximación Preliminar.Carlos Javier Lozada Villegas - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (57):182-202.
    In the present essay we want to clarify through philosophical hermeneutics the relationship that can exist between hermeneutics and nature, to answer the question: is it possible to interpret nature hermeneutically? Man's relationship with nature has been one of chaos and harmony, of dominance and submission. It is evident that nature does not need us, but we do need it. Consequently, the present essay will be broken down into four parts: In the first section, we will address the Gadamerian proposal (...)

  7. Órdenes de Lo Real: Anotaciones Sobre Los Cimientos.Nowys Navas - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (57):221-236.
    This statement was disclosed to set forth the 2019 Philosophy Week celebrated at the Universidad Central de Venezuela’s Library and also at the Philosophy Faculty’s rooms. Considering that the Public University has undergone great calamities and wickedness, the paper views men’s Promethean capabilities that embody everlasting boldness which represents tradition’s foundations. It also discusses the courage and significance of assembling to celebrate a Philosophical gathering during spiritual barbarism and crude poverty.

    Epidemic diseases —such as smallpox, influenza, measles, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, and cholera—originated as a result of the agricultural revolution. We know that a large population is a condition for its appearance, but it is not its primary cause. That cause is the close coexistence of humans with domestic animals. To the extent that man altered the ecological order, nature's response was novel and extremely dangerous microorganisms. The SARS-CoV-2 virus could be a consequence of our interference in the ecosystem, and it (...)

    The Aristophanes comedy is one of the most important Greek literary legacies, for that reason we propose study two of his most importance plays: Gentlemen and The peace. The analyze of this two plays have the intention of determinate it relevance in modern world; in particular case, from Latin-American reality: where, the actual comedy recoveries it ancient force for put in interrogation signals the forms to make politics – and the democratic system itself —for the governments in this part of (...)

    This study presents a contrast between the pessimistic view of the quarantined society, led by thinkers such as Giorgio Agamben, Paul B. Preciado and Byung-Chul Han, among others, against the model of interpersonal communication of Manuel Martín Algarrar, communicologist and communication theorist of the University of Navarra. This confrontation seeks to evaluate the reasons that support the first position, deepening in its premises and the relations that these maintain with the conclusions reached by these philosophers. For this purpose, the essential (...)

  12. Una Defensa Apasionada de la Filosofía Contemporánea.Carlos Villarino - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (57):238-251.
    The traditional enemies of Philosophy are religious dogmatism, political demagogy, poetic-literary relativism, theoretical syncretism and scientific reductionism. The tension between Philosophy and other forms of knowledge —real or pretended— is not new, but Philosophy today faces new "endogenous" threats. Contemporary philosophy has the task of thinking about the issues that deeply concern the men and women of our time: what should we do about climate change? How should we deal with the technological mechanisms of social control? What conception of humanity (...)

    Even though the image tends to be referred to the dimension of the visual, and it is as a function of this that its relations with thought are settled ‒in some moments in the cultural history of the West as opposition, and in others as a foundation–, I am interested in exploring to what extent the image anticipates a listening to come in the culture, capable of removing its deepest resistance and pressing for the incorporation of what has been displaced, (...)

  14. Platón y Cartier-Bresson, Por Una Idea de Lo Fotográfico.Erik Del Búfalo - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (56):27-40.
    In this article we review the Platonic conception of image as mimesis from the type of technical image that is photography. The classical conception of the image as a copy of the real appears as a topic for the first time in Plato, by way of falsehood or degradation of Good, in the sense that it is “distant” from the Idea. We are throwing into question the relationship between falsehood, truth and distance and we wonder to what extent photography is, (...)

  15. Persistencia Del Dualismo Sujeto/Objeto: Un Señalamiento Desde la “Teoría Del Acto Icónico”.Carmen Alicia Di Pasquale - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (56):41-54.
    The following essay aims to show some aspects of the persistence of dualism within contemporary philosophy as a critical perspective of modernity and the difficulties that this represents for an investigation of the image beyond the iconoclastic positions. For this, we will connect with the influence that certain extra philosophical disciplines are having within the most recent interest on the part of some philosophical research centers towards the problematization of the image. We will focus this review on a specific theory (...)

  16. Una Imagen de Lo Imperdonable: Sobre la Idea de Perdón En Jacques Derrida.Daniel Esparza - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (56):55-68.
    Here, I ask whether is there something that we can point out as an image of forgiveness attributable exclusively to Derrida, or if his is, on the contrary, a kind of reformulation of some other notion of forgiveness that we can find in some other text or tradition. Since, after the horrors of the twentieth century, forgiveness cannot be but presented as an impossibility, our mission is both more difficult and compelling, while we can now only conceive forgiveness, responsibly, as (...)

  17. La Mirada Del Milagro. Imagen y Palabra En Wittgenstein.Victor Krebs - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (56):69-81.
    This article explores the fate in Wittgenstein's mature work, of the issue of the unsayable, heart of the Tractatus project. According to the traditional interpretation of his work, he left behind that concern as a product of his early mistakes, later refuted in the Investigations. This article attempts to show that, in a certain sense, it is obvious that the problem of ineffability is still behind all his efforts. That it is constitutive not only of Wittgenstein's conception of language, but (...)

    Nota Editorial: Filosofía E Imagen.Sandra Pinardi - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (56):5-8.
    The following essay aims to show how the image-record, the image produced by mechanical or technical means, seems to constitute a particular way of being-language, a kind of “animal limit” of being-language, that is, a “device ” which is intended to enroll and operate in the world in radically different ways than verbal and logical language. In this sense, we will deepen into the idea of “animal limit” reading some texts from Agamben and Levinas.

    Imágenes entre eidos y pathos de Bernhard Waldenfels.Bernhard Waldenfels & Bernardo Ávalos - 2020 - Apuntes Filosóficos 29 (56):132-145.
    Había tiempos en los que como fenomenólogo uno era visto de forma muy crítica y también compasiva cuando le atribuía a imágenes y signos algo así como una presencia encarnada. Ahora nos encontramos más bien con un exceso de oferta de presencia, inmediatez, contacto y cercanía. Sin embargo, algo de esto parece ser una reversión con la que se intenta sobrecompensar deficiencias anteriores. También en la filosofía, de cuando en cuando, se da un afán excesivo, como se encuentra en los (...)
