    Cynic Philosophical Humor as Exposure of Incongruity.Christopher Turner - 2019 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 24 (1):27-52.
    I examine several recent interpretations of Cynic philosophy. Next, I offer my own reading, which draws on Schopenhauer’s Incongruity Theory of Humor, Aristotle’s account of the emotions in the Rhetoric, and the work of Theodor Adorno. I argue that Cynic humor is the deliberate exposure of incongruities between what a thing or state of affairs is supposed to be and what it in fact is, as evidenced by its present manifestation to our sense-perception and thought. Finally, I interpret the significance (...)

    Play as Symbol of the World: And Other Writings.Ian Alexander Moore & Christopher Turner (eds.) - 2016 - Bloomington: Indiana University Press.
    Eugen Fink is considered one of the clearest interpreters of phenomenology and was the preferred conversational partner of Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger. In Play as Symbol of the World, Fink offers an original phenomenology of play as he attempts to understand the world through the experience of play. He affirms the philosophical significance of play, why it is more than idle amusement, and reflects on the movement from "child's play" to "cosmic play." Well-known for its non-technical, literary style, this (...)

    The Return of Stolen Praxis: Counter-Finality in Sartre's Critique of Dialectical Reason.Christopher Turner - 2014 - Sartre Studies International 20 (1):36-44.
    What is counter-finality? Who, or what, is the agent of counter-finality? In the Critique of Dialectical Reason , Sartre employs a complicated and multivalent notion of counter-finality, the reversal of the finality intended by an agent in different contexts and at different levels of complexity. Sartre's concept of counter-finality is read here as an attempt to rethink and broaden the traditional Marxist notion of commodity fetishism as a tragic dialectic of human history whose final act has yet to play out. (...)

    On Machiavelli, as an Author, and Passages from His Writings.Johann Gottlieb Fichte, Ian Alexander Moore & Christopher Turner - 2016 - Philosophy Today 60 (3):761-788.
    This is the first English translation of the majority of Fichte’s 1807 essay on Machiavelli, which has been hailed as a masterpiece and was important for the development of German idealist political thought, as well as for its reception by figures such as Carl von Clausewitz, Max Weber, Leo Strauss, and Carl Schmitt. Fichte’s essay attempts to resuscitate Machiavelli as a legitimate political thinker and an “honest, reasonable, and meritorious man.” It tacitly critiques Napoleon, who was occupying Prussia when Fichte (...)

    Fragments on the Philosophy of History.Peter Trawny, Ian Alexander Moore & Christopher Turner - 2016 - Philosophy Today 60 (4):859-868.
    Philosophy of History is in crisis. This crisis has a structural origin in separating a finitude of the one (fate, destiny, nation, people, identity) from an infinitude of the many (individuals, biographies, contingencies, banalities). This difference seems to produce an aporia. Where could history be that would talk of both?

    Paxillin: A cytoskeletal target for tyrosine kinases.Christopher E. Turner - 1994 - Bioessays 16 (1):47-52.
    Paxillin is a recently identified member of the complex of cytoskeletal proteins that is found concentrated in cultured cells and in vivo at the cytoplasmic face of regions of cell attachment to the extracellular matrix. These sites, in view of their close proximity to the extracellular matrix, are well positioned to act as signal‐transducing centers to ‘report on’ changes in the cells, immediate environment. Recent findings indicate that such signals are in part mediated through the activation of tyrosine kinases concentrated (...)
