  1. Rethinking 'Bodenständigkeit' in the Technological Age.Robert Metcalf - 2012 - Research in Phenomenology 42 (1):49-66.
    Abstract Although the concept of “groundedness/autochthony“ ( Bodenständigkeit ) in Heidegger's writings receives far less scholarly attention than, for example, that of “releasement“ ( Gelassenheit ), a careful examination of the famous “ Gelassenheit “ speech of 1955 demonstrates that, in fact, Bodenständigkeit is the core concept around which everything else turns. Moreover, in the “ Gelassenheit “ speech and the writings on Hebel that follow, Heidegger understands Bodenständigkeit to be, fundamentally, something made possible by language in its particularities of (...)

    The Trial of Socrates in Plato’s Symposium.Robert Metcalf - 2009 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 14 (1):39-55.
    While many scholarly interpretations of Plato’s Symposium express skepticism toward the content of Alcibiades’ speech, this essay argues Alcibiades’ portrait of Socrates is credible on the whole, is consistent with the portrayal of Socrates elsewhere, and is of great significance for our understanding of philosophical eros as exemplified in Socrates’ philosophical activity. Furthermore, by putting Socrates on trial for hybris, Alcibiades’ speech raises important philosophical questions as to whether the contempt with which he treated Alcibiades is not part and parcel (...)

    The Truth of Shame-Consciousness in Freud and Phenomenology.Robert Metcalf - 2000 - Journal of Phenomenological Psychology 31 (1):1-18.
    This paper addresses the philosophical problems posed by shame-consciousness, specifically with respect to the question as to whether the feelings of shame signify an apprehension of truth. After reviewing several methodological problems posed by shame-consciousness, the paper takes up the theoretical treatment of shame in Freud, Scheler, Sartre, and Merleau-Ponty, in order to show how shame illuminates the constitution of subjectivity by power relations in society. This psychoanalytic and phenomenological account of shame is shown to be confirmed by material drawn (...)

    Cormac McCarthy and the Bioethical.Robert Metcalf - 2016 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 23 (2):57-70.
    This essay argues for a distinction between bioethics in the customary sense and the “bioethical”—where the latter involves exploration of disturbing literary and/or artistic material. The “bioethical” signifies an affective and imaginative sphere in which we experience the mattering-to-us-morally of other human beings and non-human animals. The essay further argues that Cormac McCarthy’s writings allow us to explore the bioethical, with certain philosophical implications of this discussed in detail.

    Benefit/Risk Considerations in the Use of Pesticides.Robert L. Metcalf - 1987 - Agriculture and Human Values 4 (4):15-25.
    The use of pesticides is one of the more controversial of public issues. This is so because their very widespread use produces immediate benefits to a small section of society, the agricultural industry, while the long term risks are shared by society as a whole. This discussion focuses on the contrast between benefits and risks and outlines some of the long term ecological problems that have resulted from the overuse, misuse, and injudicious use of pesticides. Detailed discussion is provided for (...)

    Editor’s Introduction to the Special Issue on Ancient Philosophy.Robert Metcalf - 2006 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 13 (2):1-3.
    I am proud to introduce this special issue of Philosophy in the Contemporary World, which is devoted to the range of possibilities open to us in dialogue with ancient philosophers. Needless to say, there will always be reason to return to ancient philosophical texts and retrace their lines of argument, precisely because these works will never cease to challenge us and offer us insight. But there is a special reason for us to take up this task in the present. As (...)

    Religion and the “Religious”: Cormac McCarthy and John Dewey.Robert Metcalf - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):135.
    Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where (...)

    The Elemental Sallis: On Wonder and Philosophy's "Beginning".Robert Metcalf - 2013 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 27 (2):208-215.
    One will never be able to interrogate wonder philosophically except by way of a questioning that the operation of wonder will already have determined. It is a well-known teaching in the writings of both Plato and Aristotle that wonder (thauma) is the beginning of philosophy. But few philosophers have given wonder much thought—certainly, no philosopher that I am aware of has, like Professor Sallis, returned time and again to think through wonder. Sallis’s thinking through wonder is guided by his reading (...)

    The Situation of Epistemology in Plato’s Theaetetus.Robert D. Metcalf - 2015 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 19 (2):241-260.
    While it may be controversial to categorize Plato’s Theatetetus as “epistemological,” given what is implied by this term, the dialogue does offer a discourse on knowledge, at least in the minimal sense of questioning knowledge. But more than that, the dialogue “situates” its questioning, and its critical examination of attempted definitions of knowledge, in two ways that are particularly illuminating: first, its dramatization of Socrates coming-to-know Theaetetus through philosophical dialogue; second, its taking for granted a whole array of epistemic practices (...)

    Living with the Matter Itself: The Practice of Philosophy Reexamined.Robert Metcalf - 2014 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 21 (1):41-53.
    The disorientation experienced by those new to philosophy attests to the fact that philosophy is, essentially, a self-transformative focal practice requiring long training and renewed commitment, and this has implications for how we think about the use of technology in teaching philosophy. By examing Plato's famous critique of writing in his Phaedrus, Statesman, and Seventh Letter, we find that his account of philosophy as an epitēdeuma, or "focal practice," demonstrates why teaching philosophy is not a matter of "content-delivery," but rather (...)

    Religion as Ligature.Robert Metcalf - 2013 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 20 (2):38-54.
    An argument found in the writings of the so-called "New Atheists" has it that the religious indoctrination of children is oppressive in and of itself, but this argument rests on what may be called an epidemiological orientation toward belief. While some forms of religious indoctrination may indeed be oppressive, any adequate phenomenology of religious belief must allow for various ways in which individuals relate themselves doxastically to the religion in which they were raised, and some of these ways could hardly (...)

    Basic Concepts of Aristotelian Philosophy.Robert D. Metcalf & Mark B. Tanzer (eds.) - 2009 - Indiana University Press.
    Volume 18 of Martin Heidegger's collected works presents his important 1924 Marburg lectures which anticipate much of the revolutionary thinking that he subsequently articulated in Being and Time. Here are the seeds of the ideas that would become Heidegger's unique phenomenology. Heidegger interprets Aristotle's Rhetoric and looks closely at the Greek notion of pathos. These lectures offer special insight into the development of his concepts of care and concern, being-at-hand, being-in-the-world, and attunement, which were later elaborated in Being and Time. (...)
