  4. Mircea Eliade’s Challenge to Contemporary Philosophy.Douglas Allen - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 45:33-40.
    Mircea Eliade, often described by scholars and in the popular press as the world's most influential scholar of religion, symbolism, and myth, was trained as a philosopher, received his Ph.D. in philosophy, and taught in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Bucharest in the 1930s. Although he became a historian and phenomenologist of religion within the field of religious studies, his approach, methodology, and analysis are informed by philosophical assumptions and philosophical normative judgments. In several of (...)

    Is Practical Philosophy for Private Profit or Public Good?: A Critical View of the Practical Turn in Contemporary Philosophy.Patricia Shipley & Fernando Leal - 2002 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 9 (1):1-9.
    This paper takes a critical look at the rise of the practice of philosophy in the market place in late modernity. Two main forms of such practice are identified: the practice of Socratic Dialogue in small groups in organisations and one-to-one philosophical counselling of individual 'clients'. The relevance of professionalism for commercialised applied practical philosophy is discussed. Philosophical counsellors in particular may be at risk of engaging with vulnerable individuals who are in need of protection from practitioners who (...)

    Doing Philosophy in the Contemporary World.Burcu Gurkan & Taine Duncan - 2015 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 22 (2):28-34.
    As a recent addition to the editorial board for the journal of Philosophy in the Contemporary World, I wanted to revisit a practice from past editions of the journal—interviewing philosophers who engage philosophical practice that reflects the mission of PCW. In this interview, a model for what I hope will continue to be a regular feature, I have a dialogue with the philosopher Burcu Gurkan. Professor Gurkan currently lives and works in Turkey while I live in work in (...)

  9. Raising Atlantis: The Later Heidegger and Contemporary Philosophy.David Kolb - 1995 - In Babette Babich (ed.), From Phenomenology to Thought, Errancy, and Desire. Kluwer. pp. 55-69.
    A discussion of how diggers stance with regard to contemporary analytic and Continental philosophy, with special emphasis on Heidegger's later works. The essay argues that Heidegger has now become attacks that people can interpret in many ways, and so is entered into dialogues which go against his own self-image of what he was about.

    Foreword to the Special Issue on Frege and Contemporary Philosophy.Robert May & Charles D. Parsons - 2012 - Journal of Philosophy 109 (1-2):5-8.
    As the history of analytic philosophy is written, Gottlob Frege sits among the pantheon, one of the core creators of a novel way of philosophical thinking. It is a way of thinking that is notably infused with logical and semantic insights that are original to Frege. The source of these insights is well known. They arise in the context of logicism, Frege’s mathematical project that unfolded in a body of thought punctuated by three seminal works, Begriffsschrift of 1879, Die (...)

    The Figure of the Apostle Paul in Contemporary Philosophy.Erzsébet Kerekes - 2015 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 14 (42):27-53.
    In this paper, I attempt to discuss the role played by the figure of Apostel Paul inside several texts of four authors: Heidegger, Badiou, Agamben and Žižek. My hypothesis is that Heidegger and the contemporary philosophers do not turn to Apostle Paul guided primarily or exclusively by theological interest or perspectives, yet they pose a great challenge to the religious thought. Heidegger’s return to Saint Paul has a philosophical-phenomenological aim: highlighting the carrying structures of the temporality of factic life. (...)

    Aquinas in Dialogue with Contemporary Philosophy: Eleonore Stump’s Aquinas. [REVIEW]Thomas Williams - 2005 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 79 (3):483-491.
    In her volume on Aquinas for Routledge’s “Arguments of the Philosophers” series, Eleonore Stumps aims at an interpretation of Aquinas that is historically faithful but also responsive to the concerns of contemporary philosophers. I assess her success in attaining this twofold aim by examining in detail Stump’s overview of Aquinas’s metaphysics, which engages with contemporary debates over constitution and identity, and her interpretation of Aquinas’s account of justice, which brings Aquinas into dialogue with Annette Baier and Thomas Nagel.

    Contemporary Social Philosophy.Jurate Morkuniene - 2006 - The Proceedings of the Twenty-First World Congress of Philosophy 2:3-7.
    In the modern world, with the processes of social development gaining accelerated rates, a new philosophical image of the world emerges, accompanied by the formation of a new social philosophy. Contemporary social philosophy is not a monosemantically defined field of the usage of notions, because it generalizes the most complicated and rapidly changing objects such as society and man. In this sense social philosophy is always incomplete, relatively open and, therefore, a temporary, theoretically "imperfect", "nonsystematic". Over (...)

    Intentionality, Minds, and Perception: Discussions on Contemporary Philosophy.E. A. R. - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 21 (2):384-384.
    This volume contains papers from a 1962 Symposium in the Philosophy of Mind held at Wayne State University. There are seven essays, each accompanied by lengthy and usually quite astute comments, and followed by a shorter rejoinder. Chisholm contributes a refinement of his much discussed criteria for intentional connectives: "On Some Psychological Concepts and the 'Logic' of Intentionality." The scare quotes are well-placed around "Logic," as it is Chisholm's intuitive rather than formal logical perspicacity which carries the weight of (...)

    Contemporary Philosophy and Religion.C. A. Qadir - 1965 - International Philosophical Quarterly 5 (3):361-378.
    The anti-religious tendency of contemporary philosophical thought is strengthened by the logical positivistic criterion of meaningfulness, according to which the language of religion is nonsensical and absurd. in common with the logical positivists, professor braithwaite holds that, of all the three conditions by which the truth of a statement can be determined, religious discourse does not fulfill any. it is asserted, accordingly, that religious language is either anthropomorphic or it means nothing. the article subjects the criterion of meaningfulness to (...)

    Contemporary Philosophy and its Origins: Text and Readings. [REVIEW]A. R. E. - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 21 (2):382-382.
    The general tenor of this introductory text is metaphilosophical, perhaps too much so for an introduction to twentieth century philosophy. The book is divided into sections on Realism, Idealism, Pragmatism, Existentialism, and Analysis. Each of these sections has an introduction of twenty or so pages which traces the currents in the history of philosophy which gave rise to Realism, Idealism, etc. in the twentieth century. Two spokesmen or "voices" for the general position or for some methodological consequences of (...)

    Faith, Reason, and Existence: An Introduction to Contemporary Philosophy of Religion. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1956 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (1):177-177.
    An exceptionally lucid account, intended for students and the "general" reader, of the "new ways of theology." Mr. Hutchinson declares himself in sympathy with the work of the Protestant "existential" or "dialectical" theologians, including Barth, Brunner, Tillich, and Niebuhr, but he also sets contemporary problems in traditional contexts and defends his own views in the light of their significant alternatives, both ancient and modern. Religion, he maintains, is primarily a matter of faith, but the rational or philosophical articulation of (...)

    Contemporary Philosophy of Social Science: A Multicultural Approach. [REVIEW]James van Evra - 1998 - Dialogue 37 (4):831-832.
    In this time of increasingly critical scrutiny of the very point of the social sciences, those negatively inclined on the issue will find an unwitting ally in Brian Fay—unless, that is, one thinks that social science is best regarded as part of a postmodern wonderland in which science, now relativized to social and political setting, is regarded as being just one means among many of gaining knowledge. If that is how science should be regarded, Fay is on the cutting edge.

    Inasmuch as a good many of the Australian philosophers one would like to see included are not represented, and some of the contributors are no longer teaching in Australia, the title of this volume is somewhat misleading. It contains an introduction by Alan Donagan and the following original essays: J. Passmore, "Russell and Bradley"; L. Goddard, "The Existence of Universals"; B. Ellis, "An Epistemological Concept of Truth"; P. Herbst, "Fact, Form, and Intentionality"; M. Deutscher, "A Causal Account of Inferring"; D. (...)

    Philosophy Relevance in the Contemporary World.J. O. Famakinwa - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 4:29-46.
    If philosophy is conceived as a method, seeing it beyond the traditional issues it addresses, issues that are not, strictly speaking, peculiar to it, then philosophy need not share the same criteria of relevance with science and technology. The paper argues that the generally held major criteria of relevance – utility, suitability, and social acceptability grounded on human desires and need are not philosophically satisfactory. The paper also argues that the Universalist conception of philosophy is, like science (...)

    Plato Studies as Contemporary Philosophy.Robert S. Brumbaugh - 1952 - Review of Metaphysics 6 (2):315 - 324.
    But this is only half of the picture. Plato makes sense to the modern American reader because that reader is influenced by a physics and cosmology radically Platonic in historic origin and in content; and because he is influenced by mathematics and formal logic which are producing challenging original speculation, and which are of a Platonic character both in genesis and nature.

    The Philosophy of Nietzsche and Post-Nietzcheanism in the Light of Contemporary Problems.Yunus Tuncel - 2007 - The Proceedings of the Twenty-First World Congress of Philosophy 7:51-57.
    In this paper, I would like to explore Nietzsche's philosophy of value, its influence on contemporary thought and culture and what it means for us today, that is, what we can appropriate from it in order to shed light on some of the problems of our age and to overcome them. These problems are in the areas of conflict, globalization and chronic injustices. I will approach the question of value in three parts: 1) Nietzsche's explicit writings on value (...)

    Contemporary Politics and Orientalist Thinking in the Light of Merleau-Ponty's Philosophy.Anna Petronella Fredlund - 2007 - The Proceedings of the Twenty-First World Congress of Philosophy 7:93-97.
    In this paper I examine the relevance of Maurice Merleau- Ponty's criticism of what he labels "objective thinking", in the light of contemporary political discussions. I compare his critique of the mutually exclusive categories of objective thinking, with Edward W. Said's analysis of Orientalism and its dichotomies between Orient and Occident as constitutive of highly material relationships of power. Especially after the 9.11 events, reasoning in terms of dichotomies between East and West, islam and civilization/freedom and so on has (...)

    The Bodily Nature of Consciousness: Sartre and Contemporary Philosophy of Mind. [REVIEW]Erich P. Schellhammer - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (3):737-738.
    The book explores Sartre’s concept of consciousness. Chapter 1 compares Sartre’s with Descartes’s, Locke’s, and Kant’s definitions of consciousness. Wider then provides for a detailed account of Sartre’s concept in chapter 2. Consequently, this account is exposed to an internal critique in chapter 3 and an external critique in chapter 4. Chapter 5 displays a variety of theories dealing with bodily intentionality. Chapter 6 exploits Sartre’s assertion that the body is the subject of consciousness to overcome shortcomings in his concept (...)

    The Problem of Relation in Contemporary Philosophy[REVIEW]M. A. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 25 (1):121-122.
    Originally prepared as a doctoral thesis which was presented in 1940, the present work ranges over the major figures in British idealism, and in the Angloamerican schools of neorealism and logical atomism. What is understood here as the problem of relations is, of course, the controversy regarding the internality or externality of relations. This controversy begins with some issues involved in the definition and classification of relations, issues which affect the definition and classification of other categories such as individual, quality, (...)

    The Four Pillars of Contemporary Political Philosophy.Piotr Boltuc - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 50:55-62.
    We can define all political theories pertinent in contemporary modern societies using a model based on only two variables. The first variable can be characterized as a spectrum between economic right and left wing theories. The spectrum can be easily defined by a strictly economic tradeoff of the desired level of taxation juxtaposed to the desired level of social services. The second variable can be defined as a distinction between liberal-individualisticand communitarian conception of persons.This leads to four positions, the (...)
