    Practices of Slur Use.Leopold Hess - 2020 - Grazer Philosophische Studien 97 (1):86-105.
    Given the apparent nondisplaceability and noncancellability of the derogatory content of slurs, it may appear puzzling that non-derogatory uses of slurs exist. Moreover, these uses seem to be in general available only to in-group speakers, thereby exhibiting a peculiar kind of context-sensitivity. In this paper the author argues that to understand non-derogatory uses we should consider slurs in terms of the kind of social practice their uses instantiate. A suitable theory of social practices has been proposed by McMillan. In typical (...)

  3. Being and properties according to Anselm of Canterbury.Leopold Hess - 2007 - Diametros:40-57.
    The topic of the article is St. Anselm’s ontological argument. This is not, however, an attempt to interpret or evaluate the proof itself, but rather to place it in a broader theoretical context. The proper aim of the article is to present a proposal of a theory of metaphysics within which this proof could be considered and acknowledged as correct. This proposal is presented in two steps: in the first the author presents a sketch of a formal theory of being (...)

  6. Heraclitus does not announce, nor does he hide, but he indicates.Leopold Hess - 2005 - Diametros:1-18.
    The subject of the article is a comparison of the work of Heraclitus with the utterances of Delphic oracle. The author analyzes the character of those utterances, pointing to their “two-layeredness”, i.e. to their having two meanings: one litteral – apparent and the other hidden – proper. The proper meaning is allegoric and is in such a relation to the litteral as the latter is to the sign . To settle for the litteral meaning is a mistake that makes it (...)

  9. Nazwy własne - fakty i mity.Leopold Hess - 2009 - Filozofia Nauki 17 (2).
    The aim of the paper is to reveal and criticize some of the hidden assumptions of the discussion on the nature of proper names. Those assumptions work in favor of the New Theory of Reference (NTR), which in fact seems more plausible than it should, were the assumptions made explicit. Three theses, it is argued, are assumed with no proof by all sides of the proper names debate: (1) proper names refer to their objects in a different way than common (...)

    Slurs and Expressive Commitments.Leopold Hess - 2020 - Acta Analytica (2):1-28.
    Most accounts of the derogatory meaning of slurs are semantic. Recently, Nunberg proposed a purely pragmatic account offering a compelling picture of the relation between derogatory content and social context. Nunberg posits that the semantic content of slurs is identical to that of neutral counterparts, and that derogation is a result of the association of slur use with linguistic conventions of bigoted speakers. The mechanism responsible for it is a special kind of conversational implicature. However, this paper argues that Nunberg’s (...)

    Superessentialism and Necessitarianism: Between Spinoza and Lewis.Leopold Hess - 2011 - Polish Journal of Philosophy 5 (1):79-95.
    The paper concerns mutual relations between two metaphysical positions: “superessentialism,” claiming that all properties of every object are essential, i.e.necessary, and “necessitarianism,” claiming that everything is necessary, i.e. there is only one possible world. The theories of Spinoza and Lewis serve as examples. In section I the two positions are characterized. In section II and III interpretations of Spinoza’s and Lewis’s metaphysics are presented, and it is explained to what extent they can both be considered superessentialists and necessitarians. In section (...)
