    The Power of Description in Manufacturing Insecurity: From Women’s Insecurity to Human Insecurity.Farhana Loonat - 2010 - South African Journal of Philosophy 29 (3):253-273.
    The use of descriptive language wields great power in defining women and men’s identities. When gendered language is used to construct women’s identities, it becomes one of the key contributing factors to women’s insecurity. This is all the more so when gendered language is reinforced through use in a variety of contexts. Women’s identities are often defined in relation to men’s, so when women’s identities are constructed in ways that are prejudicial and create insecurity for women, these constructions often have (...)

    'Errors of Judgment': The Case of Pain Sensations.F. Loonat - 2009 - South African Journal of Philosophy 28 (2):146-159.
    Errors of judgment regarding pain sensations are not possible. Christopher Hill, in his paper ‘Introspective Awareness of Sensations’, argues that we do sometimes commit ‘errors of judgment’ and he draws on an example that involves the perception of pain to illustrate his point. I analyze Hill’s example and draw on other examples of pain sensations to show how errors of judgment are not possible. I argue that pain sensations appear to be causally shaped and in some cases generated solely by (...)

  4. The History and Evolution of Martyrdom in the Service of Defensive Jihad: An Analysis of Suicide Bombers in Current Conflicts.Farhana Ali & Jerrold Post - 2008 - Social Research: An International Quarterly 75 (2):615-654.
    This paper explores the transformation of martyrdom, a legitimate Islamic concept, into suicide terrorism. The authors argue that the original application, meaning, and glory of martyrs in Islam is violated by extremists' use of suicide terrorism that is being justified with the misappropriation of Islamic principles, narratives, and themes. That extremists are able to redefine martrydom and jihad--two terms that are hotly debated and a source of controversy in the Muslim world--creates not only tension among the West and Muslims, but (...)
