  1. The Role of Tacit Knowing in Adherence to Social Norms.Ozgur Aydogmus, Hasan Cagatay, Erkan Gürpinar & Fuat Oguz - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):140-145.
    This paper aims to contribute to the ongoing discussion on adherence to social norms. It considers insights from multiple research traditions in an effort to explain how individual learning and action are connected to social norms. One strand of philosophical tradition holds that non-representational learning and skillful coping carried out unconsciously are underestimated by both scientific and philosophical traditions. The present research combines this tradition with the literature on the evolution of social norms and suggests that experienced individuals in a (...)

  3. Natural Law and "Dominium": An Analysis on the Basis of Human Rights in Domingo de Soto.Marcus Paulo R. Boeria - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):234-246.
    The article aims to examine the understanding of Domingo de Soto on the natural law and its projection for the analysis of human rights. Starting from Thomas Aquinas, the Segovian author situates the institute of the “dominium” in the spectrum of demands of the natural law, subjecting it to the table of the first principles of practical reason. In the article proposed here we seek to explore the analytical discourse present in two of his works: De Iustitia et Iure and (...)

  4. Manipulation, Character, and Ego Depletion: A Response to Michael Cholbi.Aaron D. Brooks - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):189-194.
    Michael Cholbi argues that moral character plays no role in ego-depleted, manipulated action. He bases his claim on ego depletion studies in the psychological literature. Using an Aristotelian account of virtue and moral character, I will give two arguments as to why Cholbi’s conclusion is too quick. While conceding the possibility of ego depletion and its potential influence in a manipulated environment, I first argue that character plays precisely the role that Aristotle believed it to play for at least two (...)

    We study the Relectio c. Novit de Iudiciis of Martín de Azpilcueta by exploring fundamental questions such as the initial sovereignty of the people and the reconciliation between the divine and natural origin of secular power; the criticism of the decretalist tradition of hierocracy and the consequent limitation of the direct power of the Church to the sphere of spiritual affairs among Christians; the indirect power of the pope over temporal matters among Christians ordered to the spiritual purpose; the affirmation (...)

  6. The Right of Reparation and Natural Freedom in De Instauranda Aethiopum Salute by Alonso de Sandoval S.J.Márcio Paulo Cenci - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):227-233.
    This article discusses the topic of the right of reparation in the light of the second edition of De instauranda Aethiopum salute by Alonso de Sandoval S.J.. The central argument that we maintain is that Sandoval could be a critic of American slavery with regard to an unfair application of the slavery titles. If the application of slavery titles is subject to doubt, slavery is illegal and reparation, therefore, necessary and just.

  8. Restitution as a Duty of Justice in Tomás de Mercado.Alfredo Culleton - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):247-252.
    After briefly introducing the theme of penalty and punishment in the tradition of the First and Second Scholasticism, we seek to show the development that Tomás de Mercado makes of the concept of restitution in his Suma de Tratos e Contratos written in 1571. In it he defends restitution as an imperative of justice that binds in consciousness and which cannot be dispensed by any power since it is a mandate of natural law.

    No Rationality Through Brute-Force.Danilo Fraga Dantas - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):195-200.
    All reasoners described in the most widespread models of a rational reasoner exhibit logical omniscience, which is impossible for finite reasoners (real reasoners). The most common strategy for dealing with the problem of logical omniscience is to interpret the models using a notion of beliefs different from explicit beliefs. For example, the models could be interpreted as describing the beliefs that the reasoner would hold if the reasoner were able reason indefinitely (stable beliefs). Then the models would describe maximum rationality, (...)

    This paper motivates an account of knowledge as a social kind, following a cue by Edward Craig, which captures two major insights behind social and feminist epistemologies, in particular our epistemic interdependence concerning knowledge and the role of social regulative practices in understanding knowledge.

    The aim of this paper is to critically assess and respond to two objections advanced by Daniel Stoljar against the so-called phenomenal concept strategy. My goal is to defend the physicalist response to both the knowledge argument and the conceivability argument against Stoljar’s objections. Regarding the conceivability argument, I want to show that the distinction mobilized by Stoljar between a priori and a priori synthesizable does not help us to elucidate the psychophysical condition for that is a clear disanalogy between (...)

  12. Arguments Against Ronald Dworkin’s Liberal Egalitarianism.Andrea Luisa Bucchile Faggion - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):146-154.
    In A Matter of Principle, Ronald Dworkin discusses the role a political morality should play in decisions about when the law should be obeyed and enforced, and even what law is. Noticing that liberalism was once a quasi-consensus theory in Great Britain and the United States – and, therefore, a natural candidate to that role in those countries – Dworkin argues that the loss of that status is due to an alleged failure of liberal political theorists to identify a kind (...)

    The paper discusses criticisms against pharmacological cognitive enhancement from a liberal perspective. The criticisms point to the consequences of cognitive enhancement in third parties and in the agents, as well as in independent values. According to the article, these criticisms are not convincing. On the contrary, it argues that under certain assumptions there are good reasons in favor of free access to cognitive enhancement.

  15. Separation and its Language in Plato.Renato Matoso - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):184-188.
    In this paper I present an original interpretation of the concept of separation in Plato. First, I argue that despite the fact that the ancient Greek word for “separation” almost never appears in the metaphysical discussions of Plato’s dialogues, the key role of the concept of separation in Plato’s metaphysics can be attested by the importance the platonic tradition gives to it. Therefore, understanding separation in Plato seems to be a problem we must face, but we do not have a (...)

  16. Dreier on the Supervenience Argument Against Robust Realism.Wilson Mendonça - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):167-171.
    Blackburn has put forward a very influential argument against moral realism, which turns around the supervenience relation. Dreier’s version of the supervenience argument has a narrower target. It should be effective against non-reductive, robust moral realism, by revealing an explanatory cost that non-robust, naturalistic forms of moral realism do not have. The present paper argues that naturalist realism can explain the necessity involved in the supervenience relation only by assuming an unrestricted application of Boolean closure principles. Pending an independent argument (...)

  17. The Art of Thinking: Method and Subjectivity in the Port-Royal Logic.Katarina Ribeiro Peixoto - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):155-166.
    The Logic or the Art of Thinking, also called Port-Royal Logic, is an exemplar of modern reformers in logic and epistemology. Its reformism has a marked influence of Descartes, who introduces the epistemic and logical subject into the ground of justification of knowledge and judgment. A look at the method’s commitments in this text may shed light on the dynamics of the interweaving between epistemology and logic. It is in this perspective that an analysis of the use of the Aristotelian (...)

  18. Religious Language and the Ideology of Black Slavery: Notes on Alonso de Sandoval’s De Instauranda Aethiopum Salute.Roberto Hofmeister Pich - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):213-226.
    The purpose of this study is to characterize how religious language, discourse and practices, in contexts of Catholic missionary work during the so-called colonial period of Latin American history, reveal ethical and political contents and presuppositions which are central to understand social-historical phenomena and human relationships such as Black slavery. What I briefly analyze in the work of Alonso de Sandoval S.J. are some levels of religious discourse and description of standard religious practices that may reveal how the connection between (...)

  19. Spinoza’s Argument for a Bodily Imagination.Nastassja Pugliese - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (3):172-176.
    Imagination is characterized by Spinoza as the first kind of knowledge, and, as such, imagination is a mode of thought. However, in a further mapping of the concept in the Ethics, we see that it is an activity that involves both the mind and the extended body. The standard and idealist interpretation of imagination does not account for its corporeal or extended dimension, leaving aside an important aspect of the activity. Based on the thesis of causal independency of attributes, I (...)

    Two Kinds of Necessity in Descartes: Conditional and Absolute.Saniye Vatansever - 2017 - Filosofia Unisinos 18 (2).
    This paper attempts to resolve the apparent conflict between Descartes’ commitments to the creation doctrine and the necessity of eternal truths by elaborating different conceptions of necessity in Descartes’ framework. More specifically, I argue that the fact that Descartes concedes the necessity of eternal truths does not compel him to assert the impossibility of their negation. Necessity, for Descartes, rather means immutability. Descartes distinguishes two kinds of immutable truths. While truths about God’s essence are absolutely immutable, truths about the essences (...)

    The aim of this paper is to present a challenge to the received view in folk psychology. According to this challenge, the semantic assumption behind the received view, which considers that propositional attitude ascriptions are descriptions of the internal causally efficacious states underlying behavior, cannot account for the main function of reasons in terms of mental states.
