  1. In Defense of Ambivalence and Alienation.Logi Gunnarsson - 2014 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 17 (1):13-26.
    In this paper, I argue against certain dogmas about ambivalence and alienation. Authors such as Harry Frankfurt and Christine Korsgaard demand a unity of persons that excludes ambivalence. Other philosophers such as David Velleman have criticized this demand as overblown, yet these critics, too, demand a personal unity that excludes an extreme form of ambivalence (“radical ambivalence”). I defend radical ambivalence by arguing that, to be true to oneself, one sometimes needs to be radically ambivalent. Certain dogmas about alienation are (...)

  3. Philosophy of Personal Identity and Multiple Personality.Logi Gunnarsson - 2009 - Routledge.
    As witnessed by recent films such as _Fight Club_ and _Identity_, our culture is obsessed with multiple personality—a phenomenon raising intriguing questions about personal identity. This study offers both a full-fledged philosophical theory of personal identity and a systematic account of multiple personality. Gunnarsson combines the methods of analytic philosophy with close hermeneutic and phenomenological readings of cases from different fields, focusing on psychiatric and psychological treatises, self-help books, biographies, and fiction. He develops an original account of personal identity and (...)

  4. The Great Apes and the Severely Disabled: Moral Status and Thick Evaluative Concepts.Logi Gunnarsson - 2008 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 11 (3):305-326.
    The literature of bioethics suffers from two serious problems. (1) Most authors are unable to take seriously both the rights of the great apes and of severely disabled human infants. Rationalism—moral status rests on rational capacities—wrongly assigns a higher moral status to the great apes than to all severely disabled human infants with less rational capacities than the great apes. Anthropocentrism—moral status depends on membership in the human species—falsely grants all humans a higher moral status than the great apes. Animalism—moral (...)

    Making Moral Sense: Beyond Habermas and Gauthier.Logi Gunnarsson - 2000 - Cambridge University Press.
    Is it rational to be moral? Can moral disputes be settled rationally? Which criteria determine what we have a good reason to do? In this innovative book, Logi Gunnarsson takes issue with the assumption made by many philosophers faced with the problem of reconciling moral norms with a scientific world view, namely that morality must be offered a non-moral justification based on a formal concept of rationality. He argues that the criteria for the rationality of an action are irreducibly substantive, (...)

    The Philosopher as Pathogenic Agent, Patient, and Therapist: The Case of William James: Logi Gunnarsson.Logi Gunnarsson - 2010 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 66:165-186.
    One way to understand philosophy as a form of therapy is this: it involves a philosopher who is trying to cure himself. He has been drawn into a certain philosophical frame of mind—the ‘disease’—and has thus infected himself with this illness. Now he is sick and trying to employ philosophy to cure himself. So philosophy is both: the ailment and the cure. And the philosopher is all three: pathogenic agent, patient, and therapist.

    The Architecture of Reason: The Structure and Substance of Rationality.Logi Gunnarsson - 2003 - Philosophical Review 112 (3):432-434.
    The literature on theoretical reason has been dominated by epistemological concerns, treatments of practical reason by ethical concerns. This book overcomes the limitations of dealing with each separately. It sets out a comprehensive theory of rationality applicable to both practical and theoretical reason. In both domains, Audi explains how experience grounds rationality, delineates the structure of central elements, and attacks the egocentric conception of rationality. He establishes the rationality of altruism and thereby supports major moral principles. The concluding part describes (...)

  9. What Is Constituted in Self-Constitution?Logi Gunnarsson - unknown
    A subject who has a self-transformation behind herself—say, a conversion to Catholicism—may say of herself "before transforming myself, I was a different person�. How are we to understand such a claim? Obviously, there is a sense in which the subject takes herself to be the same as before and another sense in which she considers herself to be somebody else now. One possible way of understanding it would be the following: Despite the change involved in the selftransformation, there is enough (...)

    Climbing Up the Ladder: Nonsense and Textual Strategy in Wittgenstein’s Tractatus.Logi Gunnarsson - 2001 - Journal of Philosophical Research 26:229-286.
    This paper is the work of two fictional authors, the late Johannes Philologus and Johannes Commentarius. One part consists of Philologus’s philosophical reflections on a fragment that, unbeknownst to him, is identical to the first four paragraphs of the Preface and the last two numbered propositions of Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. Commentarius writes a preface to Philologus’s article and a commentary on it, in which he, like Philologus, addresses the question of how a work consisting of nonsense can be elucidatory. By (...)

    Festlegungstheorie zur Frage personaler Identität.Logi Gunnarsson - 2008 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 56 (4):535-553.
    Drei Thesen verfolgt der Beitrag: Eine empirische, zirkuläre Theorie kann wichtige Probleme in der Diskussion um „personale Identität“ lösen. Eine Korrelatstheorie bietet die richtige Antwort auf die Frage „Was bin ich grundlegend?“: Ich bin grundlegend ein Akteur, der ein Korrelat zu den psychologischen Verbindungen ist, für die er minimal verantwortlich ist. Meine Identität kann auf Grund einer Festlegungstheorie erläutert werden, das heißt auf Grund der Relationen Festlegungsrevision und Festlegungserhalt.

  14. Making Moral Sense: Substantive Critique as an Alternative to Rationalism in Ethics.Logi Gunnarsson - 1995 - Dissertation, University of Pittsburgh
    It is commonly supposed that morality faces a justificatory crisis. Rationalism seeks to resolve this crisis by means of a direct response to the moral sceptic--to the person who doubts that there is a rational way of deciding what moral position to adopt or whether to be moral at all. I argue that the very aspirations of rationalism--to seek a refutation of the sceptic that concedes her initial standpoint and to base morality on a formal concept of rationality--are misguided. As (...)
