    Finding Meaning in the Curriculum: Orienting Philosophy Majors to a Meaningful Life as a Primary Learning Outcome.John F. Whitmire - 2018 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 79 (4):451-457.
    ABSTRACTI discuss a learning outcome of the Western Carolina University, Department of Philosophy and Religion, which focuses on a student’s development and pursuit of a meaningful, thriving, well-lived life, as a corrective to the poverty of existential reflection in the academy. We achieve this Socratic goal via a targeted series of assignments throughout the student’s education, a required pro-seminar on the topic of human flourishing, and other elective courses. The self-reflective, narrative assignments are designed to help students develop their own (...)

    Ricoeur and the Pre-Political.Farhang Erfani & John F. Whitmire - 2008 - Continental Philosophy Review 41 (4):501-521.

    The Double Writing of Les Mots: Sartre's Words as Performative Philosophy.John F. Whitmire - 2006 - Sartre Studies International 12 (2):61-82.
    Sartre's Les Mots has given rise to widely divergent competing readings in the philosophical literature, which tend to view it either as a simple continuation of his earlier, radical libertarianism, or as part of an alleged wholesale renunciation of the position we find in his early texts. I argue that most of these readings ignore the very real tensions in Words between the freedom of consciousness and the weight of circumstances. I further argue that Les Mots is a performative text (...)
