  2. Rethinking Philosophy in Light of the Bible: From Kant to Schopenhauer.Brayton Polka - 2014 - Lexington Books.
    This book analyzes the ideas central to the philosophy of Kant, Hegel, and Kierkegaard to show that they are biblical in origin, both ontologically and historically. Polka argues that Schopenhauer has an altogether false conception of the fundamental ideas of the Bible and of Christianity, which leaves his philosophy irredeemably contradictory.

    The Metaphysics of Thinking Necessary Existence: Kant and the Ontological Argument.Brayton Polka - 2012 - The European Legacy 17 (5):583 - 591.
    I argue in my paper that, when the ?twofold standpoint,? in terms of which Kant undertakes to set metaphysics upon the revolutionary path of critical reason, is truly assessed, we discover that the fundamental distinction that he makes between subject and object, between thinking (together with desiring and willing) and knowing, between thinking the thing in itself and knowing objects of possible experience, or between freedom and nature, recapitulates the ontological argument demonstrating the necessary relationship between thought and existence.

    Philosophy Without God? God Without Philosophy?: Critical Reflections on Antony Flew's God and Philosophy 1.Brayton Polka - 2006 - The European Legacy 11 (1):35-46.
    In this paper it is argued that, while the case that Antony Flew makes against philosophically invalid arguments for the existence of God is generally sound, he fails to comprehend the power and cogency of the ontological argument. Thus, his conception of the grounds of morality, separate from the biblical tradition of theology, is by no means compelling. This paper aims to show that the rational concept of morality that Flew rightly claims to uphold is not only consistent with but (...)

    The Will to Exist: Reflections on Desire and the Good in Western Culture.Brayton Polka - 2015 - The European Legacy 20 (1):12-24.
    In my essay I argue that the critical distinction that Spinoza makes between two concepts of desire, as also between two concepts of the good, captures the distinction that Tertullian makes in posing the question: What does Athens have to do with Jerusalem? In identifying the good with desire—desire with the good—and in denying that desire is dependent on the good in itself, Spinoza shows us that philosophy, as ethics, belongs to Jerusalem, to the Bible, and not to Athens. We (...)

    Who is the Single Individual?: On the Religious and the Secular in Kierkegaard.Brayton Polka - 2005 - Philosophy and Theology 17 (1/2):157-175.
    The aim of this study is to show that, because the single individual, to whom Kierkegaard dedicates his entire authorship, is no less secular than religious, the secular does not exist outside of the religious and the religious does not exist outside of the secular. To this end four concepts central to Kierkegaard are examined: authority; the either/or decision or choice and its relationship to the concepts of stages and history; indirect communication and the claim that truth is subjectivity; and (...)

    Coriolanus and the Roman World of Contradiction: A Paradoxical World Elsewhere.Brayton Polka - 2010 - The European Legacy 15 (2):171-194.
    This study argues that Shakespeare's aim in Coriolanus is twofold: (1) to depict the ancient world of Rome as dominated by contradiction; and (2) to signal to us moderns, in the biblical tradition, that we can comprehend or, in other words, interpret the contradictory world of the ancients solely on the basis of a paradoxical world elsewhere, beyond contradiction. Shakespeare thus shows us how important it is to distinguish between the contradictory values of antiquity, from which the Romans (like the (...)

    Modern Philosophy, the Subject, and the God of the Bible.Brayton Polka - 2015 - Sophia 54 (4):563-576.
    In my paper, I undertake to show that the God of the Bible is the subject of modern philosophy, i.e., that philosophy is biblical and that the Bible is philosophical. Central to the argument of my paper is an analysis of the fundamental difference between the philosophy of Aristotle, as based on the law of contradiction and thus on the contradictory opposition between necessity and existence, and the philosophy of, in particular, Spinoza and Kant, as based on the transcendental logic (...)

    In Part 2 of my study I focus on Works of Love of Kierkegaard in analyzing his concept of the single individual in light of what I call the hermeneutics of the relationship of the religious and the secular. I continue to emphasize that the hermeneutical distinction that Kierkegaard critically makes between Christianity and Christendom is the distinction, not between the religious and the secular but between, rather, a true understanding of the relationship of the religious and the secular, on (...)

    The critical issue that I examine in my study, which is divided into two parts, is how we are to interpret, within what Kierkegaard regards as “the present age,” his concept of the single individual when viewed in light of the hermeneutical distinction that he makes between Christianity and Christendom. Since the distinction between Christianity and Christendom is not one between the religious and the secular or between faith and reason but one between what he calls indirect communication and direct (...)
