    Nietzsche's Actuality: Boscovich and the Extremities of Becoming.Matthew Tones & John Mandalios - 2015 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 46 (3):308-327.
    ABSTRACT The problem of persistence and emergence endowed with the limits of “actuality” is examined in the context of Nietzsche's appropriation of both Heraclitus and Boscovich to forge a natural philosophy of becoming. The physics of Boscovich allowed a systematic refurbishment of Heraclitean notions of becoming over being while Heraclitus's tensive dynamic of generation surpassed and overcame the limits of Anaximander's indeterminate. Nietzsche's early investigations bear overt signs of a formative philosophical outlook that seeks to marry the infinite and the (...)

    A Time for the Marginal: Levinas and Metz on Biblical Time.Manuel Losada-Sierra & John Mandalios - 2015 - Heythrop Journal 56 (3):411-423.
    In the modern consideration of historical time, reason is the driving force of progress through a homogenous, linear and continuum time. In fact, during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries humanity was witnessing a history of progress in which it appeared that history was progressing towards a better world. However, the tragedies of the twentieth century indicate the opposite. Western reason proved unable to stop the barbarism of war. At the heart of this panorama, according to Emmanuel Levinas and Johann Baptist (...)

    Being and Cultural Difference: (Mis)Understanding Otherness in Early Modernity.John Mandalios - 2000 - Thesis Eleven 62 (1):91-108.
    As a precursor to the Enlightenment, early modern European conceptions of being and human alterity formed a critical part of both the birth of modernity and the reception of divergent cultural forms lying beyond the horizon of Western knowledge. The extension of occidental power beyond its familiar shores not only resulted in the coercion and subjugation of countless New World natives but also compelled the Western mind to account for the seemingly radical alterity of `savage' life forms in civilizations hitherto (...)

    Necessity as Illusory Truth: Nietzsche's Deceptive Actualization.John Mandalios - 2013 - Cosmos and History 9 (2):138-153.
    Exposing the tension between Nietzsche's supposed naturalism and his inclusion of the will as a spiritual force behind every activity, it is argued that Nietzsche's prime concern was to enhance the height and power of humanity's spirituality.

    Nietzsche and the Necessity of Freedom.John Mandalios - 2008 - Lexington Books.
    Can one think of freedom and responsibility simultaneously despite Nietzsche's philosophical critique of truth and morality? John Mandalios argues that Nietzsche's account of our all-too-human existence shows the preponderance of master and slave forms of value, of ethical life, and of their vicissitudes across time and space.

    Nietzsche, Freedom and Power.John Mandalios - 2003 - European Journal of Social Theory 6 (2):191-208.
    In contradistinction to a common misconception of Nietzsche as a theoretician who only concerned himself with power, it is argued Nietzsche can be understood as a philosopher who conceived of power in relation to will, freedom, cause and effect, and responsibility. His conception of freedom poses a challenge to mainstream liberal and juridico-rights based political philosophies; it arguably also challenges some of the claims propounded by today's foremost critical theorist, Jürgen Habermas. What is overlooked, due to an unduly deconstructive restriction, (...)
