  1. Not Much Higher-Order Vagueness in Williamson’s ’Logic of Clarity’.Nasim Mahoozi & Thomas Mormann - manuscript
    This paper deals with higher-order vagueness in Williamson's 'logic of clarity'. Its aim is to prove that for 'fixed margin models' (W,d,α ,[ ]) the notion of higher-order vagueness collapses to second-order vagueness. First, it is shown that fixed margin models can be reformulated in terms of similarity structures (W,~). The relation ~ is assumed to be reflexive and symmetric, but not necessarily transitive. Then, it is shown that the structures (W,~) come along with naturally defined maps h and s (...)

  2. Observing by Hand: Sketching the Nebulae in the Nineteenth Century.Omar W. Nasim - 2013 - University of Chicago Press.
    Today we are all familiar with the iconic pictures of the nebulae produced by the Hubble Space Telescope’s digital cameras. But there was a time, before the successful application of photography to the heavens, in which scientists had to rely on handmade drawings of these mysterious phenomena. Observing by Hand sheds entirely new light on the ways in which the production and reception of handdrawn images of the nebulae in the nineteenth century contributed to astronomical observation. Omar W. Nasim (...)

  3. The Spaces of Knowledge: Bertrand Russell, Logical Construction, and the Classification of the Sciences.Omar W. Nasim - 2012 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 20 (6):1163-1182.
    What Russell regarded to be the ?chief outcome? of his 1914 Lowell Lectures at Harvard can only be fully appreciated, I argue, if one embeds the outcome back into the ?classificatory problem? that many at the time were heavily engaged in. The problem focused on the place and relationships between the newly formed or recently professionalized disciplines such as psychology, Erkenntnistheorie, physics, logic and philosophy. The prime metaphor used in discussions about the classificatory problem by British philosophers was a spatial (...)

    Observation, Working Images and Procedure: The ‘Great Spiral’ in Lord Rosse's Astronomical Record Books and Beyond.Omar W. Nasim - 2010 - British Journal for the History of Science 43 (3):353-389.
    This paper examines the interrelations between astronomical images of nebulae and their observation. In particular, using the case of the ‘Great Spiral’ , we follow this nebula beginning with its discovery and first sketch made by the third Earl of Rosse in 1845, to giving an account, using archival sources, of exactly how other images of the same object were produced over the years and stabilized within the record books of the Rosse project. It will be found that a particular (...)

    The ‘Landmark’ and ‘Groundwork’ of Stars: John Herschel, Photography and the Drawing of Nebulae.Omar W. Nasim - 2011 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 42 (1):67-84.
    This paper argues for continuity in purpose and specific results between some hand drawn nebulae, especially those ‘descriptive maps’ by John F. W. Herschel and E. P. Mason in the late 1830s, and the first photographs made of the nebulae in the 1880s. Using H. H. Turners’ explication in 1904 of the three great advantages of astrophotography, the paper concludes that to some extent Herschel’s and Mason’s hand-drawings of the nebulae were meant to achieve the same kinds of results. This (...)

  27. Preispitivanje Pojma Međunarodnog Prava – o Metodološkim Aspektima.Miodrag Jovanović - 2014 - Revus 22:121-144.
    Ovaj rad se bavi metodološkim aspektima obnovljenih pravno-filozofskih nastojanja da se preispita pojam međunarodnog prava. Posle kratkog osvrta na istoriju pravne filozofije i ključne tačke Hartovog i Kelzenovog pozitivističkog stanovišta, u radu se dalje ispituje na koji način se savremene pravne teorije, kako u pozitivističkoj, tako i u ne-pozitivističkoj tradiciji, bave međunarodnim pravom. Poslednji deo rada predstavlja pokušaj da se skiciraju određene smernice za novi početak u filozofskoj obradi međunarodnog prava. Prvo, istorija rasprava u ovoj oblasti svedoči o tome da (...)

    Benacerraf on Mathematical Knowledge.Vladimir Drekalović - 2010 - Prolegomena 9 (1):97-121.
    Causal theory of knowledge has been used by some theoreticians who, dealing with the philosophy of mathematics, touched the subject of mathematical knowledge. Some of them discuss the necessity of the causal condition for justification, which creates the grounds for renewing the old conflict between empiricists and rationalists. Emphasizing the condition of causality as necessary for justifiability, causal theory has provided stimulus for the contemporary empiricists to venture on the so far unquestioned cognitive foundations of mathematics. However, in what sense (...)

    Formalna analiza značenja u prirodnim jezicima.Ljiljana Šarić - 2006 - Prolegomena 5 (1):65-88.
    Tema je ovoga teksta u širem smislu osvrt na odnos logike i lingvistike. U užem smislu tekst će se u prvome dijelu osvrnuti na teme i instrumentarij, a u drugom na povijest formalne semantike. Recepcija formalnosemantičkih radova na našim područjima nema čvršću tradiciju, kao ni primjena formalnih metoda na proučavanje jezika, pa se i stoga čini korisnim ukazati na njezine dosege. Formalna semantika inspirativno je i plodonosno interdisciplinarno polje istraživanja koje je od 70-tih godina 20. stoljeća iznimno uspješno povezivalo istraživanja (...)

    Co Je to (Fregovská) Logika?Jaroslav Peregrin - manuscript
    Filosofové odedávna snili o jazyce, který by byl z hlediska řešení těch problémů, se kterými se potýkají (případně všech lidských problémů vůbec), vhodnější než jazyk, jímž nás obdařila příroda. Mnozí z nich si představovali, že filosofické problémy vznikají zčásti nebo zcela v důsledku toho, že přirozený jazyk není dostatečně přesným prostředkem vyjádření našich idejí a myšlenek - a že by se tedy vše spravilo, kdyby byl k dispozici jazyk, jehož výrazivo by bylo s našim myšlením - případně s naším světem (...)

    Kontekstualnost shematske (ne)uvjetovanosti u pragmatičkoj metafizici.Sami Pihlström - 2011 - Synthesis Philosophica 26 (1):161-173.
    Ovaj članak razmatra modernu, posebice pragmatičku, varijantu kantovskog problema umske ili shematske uvjetovanosti ontologije. Tvrdi se da je razlika između shematske uvjetovanosti i shematske neuvjetovanosti u transcendentalnoj metafizici kontekstualna, ne apsolutna, i da je takva kontekstualnost »transcendentalna činjenica« o našim praksom prožetim svjetotvornim djelatnostima.

    Jučer, danas, sutra.Iris Vidmar - 2008 - Filozofska Istrazivanja 28 (4):897-912.
    Unatoč činjenici da je osjećaj protjecanja vremena neodvojivo povezan s našim iskustvom i načinom na koji razmišljamo o njemu, postoje teorije koje na vrijeme gledaju drukčije i tvrde kako je taj osjećaj protjecanja samo naša subjektivna kategorija, nešto što uopće ne odgovara pravoj prirodi vremena. Vrijeme niti teče niti prolazi, ono naprosto jest, jednako realno u svoj svojoj cjelovitosti. Te teorije, prikladno nazvane eternalističkim teorijama, negiraju poseban status kojeg se tradicionalno pridodaje sadašnjosti kao jedinom realnom odsječku vremena i tvrde da (...)

    Smisao života.Boran Berčić - 2006 - Filozofska Istrazivanja 26 (1):91-113.
    Autor raspravlja da pitanje o smislu života prvenstveno treba razumijeti kao pitanje o logičkoj strukturi razloga za djelovanje. Odnosno, pitanje o smislu života u prvome je redu potraga za racionalnom rekonstrukcijom naših praktičnih razloga. Činjenica da se veliki broj naših djelovanja može opravdati unutar okvira instrumentalne racionalnosti upućuje da na kraju lanca opravdanja mora postojati jedan ili više konačnih razloga za djelovanje. Uobičajeni kandidati su sreća, objektivna svrha, briga za druge i slično. Sve navedene odgovore autor odbacuje smatrajući da je (...)

  41. Kakvu vrst političkog obrazovanja želimo danas?Caroline Lafaye - 2008 - Synthesis Philosophica 23 (1):149-163.
    Suočujući se sa suvremenim kulturnim i religijskim pluralizmom, povezanim sa zahtjevima prepoznavanja od manjina u multikulturalnim društvima, niti klasični republikanizam niti liberalizam ne daju nam zadovoljavajuću orijentaciju u oblikovanju političkog obrazovanja prilagođenog tom društvenom kontekstu. Obrazovanje će doprinijeti društvenoj pacifikaciji i socijalnim kompromisima samo ako elaboriramo političko obrazovanje koje uzima u obzir i primjereno odgovara na glavni aktualni politički cilj: zajedničko življenje s našim različitostima. U ovome članku istražuje se sadržaj takovog političkog obrazovanja.
