    Realism, Relativism and Pluralism: An Impossible Marriage?Paolo Costa - 2015 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 41 (4-5):413-422.
    In broad terms, realism, relativism and pluralism can be regarded as the theoretical articulations of the following insights. Realism embodies the sense that what is at stake in our beliefs is something serious, i.e. that there is a fact of the matter, independent from our desire, which is going to decide whether what we believe in is true or not. Relativism, on the other hand, incorporates the realization that our cognitive take on the world is always perspectival, that there is (...)

    Essays in Retrieval: Charles Taylor as a Theorist of Historical Change.Paolo Costa - 2018 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 44 (7):787-789.
    Like all great thinkers, Charles Taylor was able with his oeuvre to challenge and often change the vocabulary, habits and theoretical imaginary of his readers. In this sense, he deserves to be celebrated as a teacher in the broadest sense of the word. Especially remarkable is his mastery in making the complexity of our experience as modern men and women accessible. Now, the first thing that can be learned from his sane attitude towards modern epistemology is the resolve to embrace (...)

    " What is Familiar is Not Understood Precisely Because It is Familiar" a Re-Examination of McDowell's Quietism.Paolo Costa - 2012 - Verifiche: Rivista Trimestrale di Scienze Umane 41 (1-3):103-127.
    The essay’s main goal is to see what connection (if any) may be drawn between McDowell’s theoretical quietism and Hegel’s idea of philosophy. McDowell’s view is explicitly rooted in Wittgenstein’s belief that «philosophy leaves everything as it is» and that its task only «consists in assembling reminders for a particular purpose», but it may be interesting to investigate whether this quietism, as he has recently reiterated, is merely «Wittgensteinian» or has a broader import. The issue is approached «sideways on». The (...)

    The Language Animal: A Long Trajectory.Paolo Costa - 2017 - Dialogue 56 (4):621-632.
    In my paper, I set The Language Animal against a broader picture of Taylor’s intellectual trajectory. Sources of the Self (1989) left three major questions open in its wake: (a) the viability of religious moral sources in a ‘secular’ age; (b) the compatibility between a robust moral realism and a genealogical account of modern identity; (c) the meaning and destiny of the so-called ‘linguistic turn’. This is the framing topic of his last book. Although Taylor’s variety of hermeneutics is unquestionably (...)
