    A Darwinian Left: Politics, Evolution, and Cooperation. [REVIEW]Peter Amato - 2003 - Social Theory and Practice 29 (3):515-522.
    Singer argues that thinking on the Left insufficiently appropriates the broader insights about life and human nature made possible by Darwin. I think Singer has it backwards: the problem is not that Darwin has insufficiently been allowed to influence thinking on the Left, but, rather, that the meaning of “Darwinism” has been distorted by the wider scientific and intellectual communities broadly as a support for Right-wing views including patriarchy and racism since its early days. That Darwin’s theories have so often (...)

    Hobbes, Darwinism, And Conceptions Of Human Nature.Peter Amato - 2002 - Minerva 6:24-50.
    Despite providing the basic theoretical framework for Western biology and all related sciences, Darwinism continues tobe a controversial perspective when it comes to understanding ourselves as distinctly "human." In this paper, I try tocorrect a common misinterpretation of Thomas Hobbes' conceptualization of human nature which I think sheds light onsome of the significant misunderstandings and sources of objection to Darwinism. I begin by contrasting this commonmisreading of Hobbes' philosophy of human nature with an alternative reading that suggests a more subtle (...)

    Habermas’s “Other” Legitimation Crisis: Critical-Philosophical Dimensions.Peter Amato - 2001 - Radical Philosophy Review 4 (1/2):205-228.
    A kind of political complacency has become a common complaint of Habermasian philosophy. At odds with some earlier stances, according to which he had claimed to represent the best critical hopes of a Marxist tradition that he regarded as exhausted, Habermas has come to defend the legitimacy of liberal democratic institutions and forms ofpolitical expression. No longer the last Marxist, but a hesitant post-Marxist, Habermas is today arguably the foremost intellectual spokesperson for a presently existing democracy which bears as much (...)

    Marxist Critique and Philosophical Hermeneutics.Peter Amato - 2006 - Radical Philosophy Today 2006:235-242.
    Philosophically robust conceptions of ethical life and moral critique would advance the struggle against capital. Marx can be read as implying that human life is irreducibly meaningful, linguistic, and cultural, but he often is not. Whether or not Marx recognized them himself, these dimensions of life have not been sufficiently thematized or developed by Marxists. I argue that we can move toward doing so with assistance from Hans-Georg Gadamer’s philosophical hermeneutics. A hermeneutical approach to historical materialism would help clarify and (...)

  17. On Vernacular Rationality: Gadamer and Eze in Conversation.Peter Amato - 2017 - In Adeshina Afolayan & Toyin Falola (eds.), The Palgrave Handbook of African Philosophy. pp. 303-313.
    In this chapter, Amato explores the concept of “vernacular rationality” introduced by Emmanuel Chukwude Eze in his On Reason: Rationality in a World of Cultural Conflict and Racism. Amato interrogates the different ways this idea can be unfolded, expanded, and developed in the spirit if not the letter of Eze’s employment in relation to Hans-Georg Gadamer’s Philosophical Hermeneutics—in particular, its conception of the role tradition plays in the pursuit of understanding and the idea of hermeneutics as practical philosophy.

    The Menkiti-Gyekye Conversation: Framing Persons.Peter Amato - 2018 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 7 (2):34-47.
    Ifeanyi Menkiti’s “Person and Community in African Traditional Thought” is criticized from the standpoint that the author assumes a dichotomous framework taken over in his decision to articulate the African view of the person in the idiom of modern philosophy. Kwame Gyekye’s critique of Menkiti in “Person and Community in Akan Thought” is also scrutinized to see if it manages to break free from this framework. I conclude by calling for a departure from quasi-scientific approaches to human nature and experience (...)
