    Umberto Eco’s Encyclopedia Vs. Porphyry’s Tree.Andrei Cornea - 2009 - Laval Théologique et Philosophique 65 (2):301-320.
    Cet article met en question une tendance postmoderne assez répandue: celle de reconstruire abusivement la signification d’un texte du passé, de telle façon que ce texte puisse jouer le rôle d’allié ou d’ennemi dans nos guerres idéologiques. L’exemple choisi c’est un article d’Umberto Eco - «Anti-Porfirio» ainsi qu’un chapitre parallèle de son livre Semiotics and the Philosophy of Language. Selon Eco, le fameux «Arbre de Porphyre» serait une illustration graphique de ce qu’il appelle «pensée forte». Or, cette pensée aurait été (...)

    Aristotle and Epicurus on Sensations, Falsity, and Truth.Andrei Cornea - 2014 - Chôra 12:213-228.
    Epicurus claimed that „all sensations are true”, and that the false is only in the opinions. This paradoxical theory, very much criticized both by ancient and modern commentators, for it seems counterfactual, draws on Aristotle’s theory of sensations. Aristotle holds that sensations and opinions must be distinguished. As long as sensations stick to their „proper domain”, they remain trustworthy and cannot refute each other, regardless of whether they are similar or different in kind. Yet they can fail to perceive the (...)

    La prénotion d’Épicure est‑elle d’inspiration platonicienne?Andrei Cornea - 2011 - Chôra 9:203-216.
    The article calls in question the widely held opinion that Epicurus developed his concept of prolepsis as an empirical “alternative response” to the Platonic Forms. One tries to show that in fact the prolepsis and the Form produce two different types of knowledge and that their difference goes beyond the fact that the former is empirical while the latter is not: the prolepsis is based on recognition and strives to ascertain the identity of the perceived things, while the Form is (...)

    Paradoxe du Mal et «ressemblances de famille».Andrei Cornea - 2007 - Chôra 5:27-43.
    Paradox of the Evil and "Family Ressemblances". The paper tackles the problem of Matter and evil in Plotinus. monistic metaphysics, especially in theperspective of the following aparent inconsistency: if there is no other principle but the Good, then the Good creates the Matter which is the absolute evil. Itfollows that the Good is bad, according to a certain axiom of Proclus, which states that the creator is to a higher degree all what the creature is. The authorshows that, despite what (...)

    On Comparing Cultural Forms.Andrei Cornea - 2009 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 8 (23):124-140.
    The paper intends to study the possibility of evading the relativist dilemma: when you compare cultural forms belonging to different traditions, you either impose the result from outside, or you give up comparisons altogether as dependent on the arbiter’s parochial choices. In this paper one argues that, apart from this kind of comparison, which is called extrinsic, there is another type, called intrinsic, which is not dependent on arbiter’s choices. The essence of the intrinsic comparison is the role played by (...)

  8. “If There Were an Eye on the Back of the Heaven…”.Andrei Cornea - 2007 - Laval Théologique et Philosophique 63 (3):459-472.
    Our paper discusses two curious passages of Plotinus’ treatise On some difficulties concerning the Soul III. On vision, where the philosopher seems to contemplate the possibility of another universe outside this one. Yet we could never know this other universe, nor could we even decide whether it exists or not, even if “there were an eye on the back of the Heaven” able to look at it at close range. In fact, Plotinus explains, different universes cannot communicate at all among (...)

    Relativity and Relativism: On a Failed Analogy.Andrei Cornea - 2012 - Cultura 9 (1):29-42.
    My paper is a reply to Mr. Seungbae Park’s article, “Defence of Cultural Relativism”, which holds that no culture is better than another. In response,my paper challenges the author’s method, fairly popular amongst some postmodern thinkers, that tends to equate cultural relativism and Einstein’s theory of relativity. Firstly, I question the general rationale of establishing an analogy between relativity and relativism. In my opinion, the analogy fails to take into accountthe very large generic distance between physics and ethics. Secondly, I (...)
