  • Abs.2020_I Buju
    • Abstract: Abstract: This study shows some of the difficulties concerning the issue of meaninglessness in life when moving from the philosophical register to the therapeutic one without abandoning any of the perspectives. We see that authors from different fields of study (philosophy, psychotherapy, psychiatry) have common opinions about the minimal conditions for a healthy approach of the meaninglessness as philosophical and/or therapeutic issue. Beyond reviewing recent psychological research that indicates the important steps taken in the empirical and therapeutic research of meaninglessness, we notice the challenge of therapists to combine resources from philosophy, psychology and religion. As religion is insufficiently developed in interventions oriented towards meaning and lack of meaning, we sustain integrating two theological virtues, faith and hope, as unconventional resources in support therapy to diminish the feeling of lack/loss of meaning in life. Keywords: meaninglessness in life, clinical difficulties, psychotherapy, spiritual resources, faith, hope.

  • Abs.2020_I Cole Wright, Snow, Warren
    • Abstract: Abstract: One of the main arguments that has been given for the importance of virtue is that it is not only important for, but is in fact constitutive of, a life well-lived, necessary for human wellbeing and flourishing. Yet, human life is also profoundly fragile, often filled with, and always vulnerable to, suffering. Thus, we must ask: what role does virtue play in our suffering, in how we face it, manage it, and survive it' Recent work in philosophy and psychology has argued for an important potential relationship between suffering and virtue, but the nature of this relationship is not well understood. In this paper, we lay out a philosophically and empirically rigorous approach to conceiving of and measuring virtue as a particular type of personality trait, and then discuss the implications of our account for aiding philosophers and psychologists in their quest to understand the relationship between suffering and virtue.Keywords: virtue, suffering, post-traumatic growth, trauma, personality.

  • Abs.2020_I Dabdoub, Bernal, Naval
    • Abstract: Abstract: The authors of Positive Psychology have presented it as the social science equivalent of the Aristotelian virtue ethics. However, in the last two decades, numerous scholars from the Aristotelian philosophy point out relevant discrepancies between the moral theory of Positive Psychology and that of Aristotle. In this article, we aim to study three matters in the Positive Psychology that we consider in conflict with the Aristotelian moral ideal: 1) the meaning of life; 2) how virtue is cultivated; and 3) the relationship between good life, well-being and emotions in happiness. We conclude with some reflections on the distance we find between the approaches of Positive Psychology and Aristotle, considering the difference between the methods of experimental sciences and philosophy. Keywords: Positive Psychology; Aristotle; Character; Moral Virtue; Virtue ethics; Happiness; Well-Being; Eudaimonia; Meaning of Life; Martin Seligman.

  • Abs.2020_I Delle Fave
    • Abstract: Abstract: Meaning in life is a core component of human experience, and it plays a relevant role in the promotion of mental, social and physical well-being, as well as in the successful adaptation to adverse conditions, including chronic and progressive diseases. This paper provides an overview of the most recent conceptualizations of meaning in the psychological domain, specifically addressing its tripartite structure, encompassing the facets of coherence, significance and purpose. Empirical evidence will be summarized concerning the role of social relationships and self-transcendence as primary sources of meaning in life. Research findings highlighting the role of meaning as a core component of mental health, and as a resource in adaptively managing illness consequences on daily functioning and life goals will be also reported. Current research gaps and future directions for theoretical and empirical advancements will be outlined.   Keywords: Meaning, purpose, coherence, well-being, illness.

  • Abs.2020_I Gulliford
    • Abstract: Abstract: The methodological approach used by Browning and Cooper in Religious Thought and the Modern Psychologies (2004) is applied to positive psychology, with special reference to Martin Seligman, and is found to have affinities with both humanistic psychology and the cognitive therapies. The humanistic concept of self-actualisation resonates with Seligman’s understanding of signature strengths, while there are echoes of the Stoic self of the cognitive therapies in positive psychology. Both fields have left their different marks on the way character strengths and virtues have been understood in positive psychology. For one thing, understanding human excellences primarily as individual capacities occludes the fact that many virtues are profoundly relational; they are conceived, practised and sustained in relation to other agents and exercised in the service of our common human life. For another, there is much more to forgiveness, gratitude and hope than a means of effecting emotional repair. Keywords: Virtue, Character strengths, Positive Psychology, Don Browning, Terry Cooper, Martin Seligman.

  • Abs.2020_I Klun
    • Abstract: Abstract: The idea of the incarnation as God’s kenotic descent and renunciation of his transcendent status plays a central role in Gianni Vattimo’s interpretation of Christianity. The self-weakening of the Christian God is intrinsically linked and structurally related to the historical emergence of (post)modern hermeneutics with its criticism of strong and of potentially violent metaphysical thinking. However, Vattimo’s understanding of incarnation harbours a paradox, as the incarnation should not be taken in a literal sense, as it is itself an interpretation brought to us through the message of the Bible. Reduced to its spiritual meaning, the incarnation in Vattimo’s approach undergoes a specific “de-carnation”. However, this seems to be a problem not only for Vattimo’s reading of Christianity, but also for his conception of hermeneutics as such. The hermeneutic spiritualisation of being as an event in language loses reference to any “fleshly” givenness, and calls for a phenomenological reconsideration of hermeneutic presuppositions.   Keywords: Hermeneutics, Vattimo, Christianity, Incarnation, Kenosis, Phenomenology.

  • Abs.2020_I Papagiannis
    • Abstract: Abstract: This article deals with the notion of creation in a philosophical sense in Plato and the basic Upanishad, the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad. This is an attempt to bring to surface any similarities and differences between the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad and Plato’s cosmological dialogue (the Timaeus, though many references are made to the Timaeus’ continuation or prequel, the Critias).  An introduction in order for the works to be placed within a time-frame and then several myths are analyzed and compared, including the myth of Atlantis in Plato and the idea of time in both Plato and the Upanishad. In addition the article examines the notion of ex nihilo creation in the two texts. Finally conclusions are drawn as to the main points brought to analysis. Keywords: Myth of Creation, Time, Atlantis, Upanishad, Divine, Nature.

  • Abs.2020_I Properzi
    • Abstract: Abstract: The aim of this paper is to reconstruct the research program of formale Ontologie developed by M. Scheler before his last 1922 theoretical shift. Scheler’s theory of dialectical negation will be also investigated. In regard to the first topic, the focus will be on the complex “architecture” of Scheler’s formal ontology, deepened within a theoretical framework of “Realontologie”: integrated into this framework, formal ontology becomes a basic tool for building phenomenological realisms. In regard to the second topic, the focus will be on the close theoretical relationship between Scheler’s mature suggestion of a phenomenological “objective dialectics” essence-being and the formal ontological foundation of a logical theory of a “pluralistic” dialectical negation, that is, dually, an intuitionistic, hence paracomplete, and a paraconsistent negation. Finally, it will be introduced the basics of a semiotic interpretation of Scheler’s phenomenological formal ontology within the rigorous framework of Category Theory (TC). This interpretation “strengthens” the traditional “(inter)subjective” side of phenomenological analysis (I-we talk) with a new ─ in the application suggested ─ in the “third person” “objective” side (O-talk) of semiotic analysis, that shares with the first one a common pre-logical and ante-predicative level of inquiry. Keywords: Formal Ontology, Phenomenological Realism, Dialectics, Duality, Intuitionistic Negation, Paraconsistent Negation, Category Theory.

  • Abs.2020_I Seol
    • Abstract: Abstract: According to the early Heidegger, the world is disclosed in dependence on Dasein, which is a term for each of us. A question arises as to how the world can be established despite the particular existence of Dasein. After reviewing previous discussions of the question, I elucidate the priority of the world over my world based on Heidegger’s lecture in 1928/29, which contains a considerable discussion of the relationship between Being–with (Mitsein) and truth. According to him, since truth is essentially communal and cannot be privatized, the sphere of truth manifested by a particular Dasein is open to all other Dasein. This openness signifies, I argue, the ontological priority of an open realm that covers every sphere of truth. This open realm is no different from the world that is ontologically disclosed in common. Based on this common world–disclosure, each Dasein discloses its own world according to its life history and situation. Keywords: Heidegger, World, World-disclosure, Being-with, Truth, Intersubjectivity.

  • Abs.2020_I Unlu
    • Abstract: Abstract: There are several passages in the Metaphysics where Aristotle explains ontological priority in terms of ontological dependence, but there are others where he seems to adopt a teleological conception of ontological priority. It is sometimes maintained that the latter priority too must be construed in terms of the former, or that the priorities in question are not both endorsed (or simultaneously endorsed) by Aristotle. The goal of this paper is to show otherwise; I argue that what is at issue are two distinct priorities that Aristotle simultaneously endorses. Keywords: Aristotle, ontological priority, ontological dependence, separation, substance.

  • Abs.2019_II Belardinelli-Cimmino
    • Abstract: Abstract: The essay illustrates how MacIntyre’s After Virtue offers a constructive critique of modern individualism through the concept of “practice,” which is at the basis of MacIntyre’s ethical realism and constitutive of the narrative identity of self, based on the Aristotelian anthropology of human perfection. The essay takes into consideration the concept of community, highlighting the differences between MacIntyre and Communitarianism. The last section focuses on education, its crisis in advanced modernity, and how MacIntyre’s perspective offers an avenue for overcoming that crisis by means of the realism inherent in virtuous education.

    • Abstract: Abstract: This paper aims to sketch the original role played by Antonio Genovesi (1713-1769) in the philosophical background of the Modern Age, referring particularly to the birth and the first development of Economic science. In the first two paragraphs his biography and bibliography are shortly revisited, focusing on the cultural background of Naples where he lived, studied and taught Philosophy, Theology, Ethics and Economy. Furthermore we focus on some main themes of Genovesi’s thought, in particular : the relationship between the human being, the world and God. Finally we outline a short insight on his proposal of “Civil Economy”.

  • Abs.2019_II Gahl
    • Abstract: Abstract: Alasdair MacIntyre’s account of moral philosophy offers an interwoven theory of teleology, narrative, and human flourishing. As MacIntyre has continued to develop these three central components of his proposal, he has also reinforced their inseparability and mutual dependence. Nonetheless, many of his commentators continue to neglect the interrelatedness of these components on account of their having underappreciated the extent and depth of his conversion to Aristotelian Thomism. This essay displays MacIntyre’s development of moral philosophy over the course of his career. It also focuses on MacIntyre’s Thomistic integration of natural teleology within his metaphysical anthropology to emphasize the distinctiveness of narratives understood as real dramatic enactments constitutive of human flourishing. Although few Thomists have attempted to re-read Aquinas in light of MacIntyre’s proposal for extending that living tradition of enquiry, this essay concludes with a Thomistic proposal for a narrative anthropology crafted to constructively engage MacIntyre’s proposal from the Thomistic perspective.

  • Abs.2019_II Lutz
    • Abstract: Abstract: This essay examines the epistemological stance, called “the rationality of traditions,” that MacIntyre has taken in all of his philosophical work since the publication of Epistemological Crises, Dramatic Narrative, and the Philosophy of Science in 1977. The essay distinguishes the rationality of traditions from MacIntyre’s substantive commitments to the Thomistic-Aristotelian tradition, examines the connections between narrative and tradition in his philosophy, and shows that MacIntyre’s latest books continue to utilize the rationality of traditions.

  • Abs.2019_II Maletta-Mazzola
    • Abstract: Abstract: The first part of this paper is devoted to an outline of MacIntyre’s theory of natural law. According to him, natural law is implied in the ordinary moral experience especially when one is forced to deliberate about common goals and to take part in a common enquiry on human flourishing. The precepts of natural law are presupposed by this common enquiry from the perspective of ordinary moral experience. The second part of the paper is devoted to the presentation and discussion of two critical perspectives on the MacIntyrian approach to natural law by Jean Porter e Gerald McKenny.

  • Abs.2019_II McMylor
    • Abstract: Abstract: This paper sets out to explore the work of the philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre in relation to his profound criticisms of the social and economic order of modern capitalist modernity. The paper begins by setting his broad intellectual trajectory within the context of the emergence of the British New Left in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It highlights the continuing significance of some of the key themes explored by the New Left throughout all of MacIntyre’s work and especially regarding his latest work Ethics in the Conflicts of Modernity published in 2016. The paper attempts to bring out the significant role that MacIntyre gives to sociological analysis within his account of modernity and notes the importance of such analysis within what otherwise appears to be his purely philosophical approach and points towards MacIntyre’s work being a form of moral philosophy rooted in social practices that is especially congenial to sociology.

    • Abstract: Abstract: ‘Ordo rationis’, virtue and law. Reflections on a book by Marco Panero: In his book ‘Ordo rationis’, virtù e legge. Studio sulla morale tomista della ‘Summa Theologiae’, Panero displays an exceptionally well organised, comprehensive and convincing view of the moral philosophy of Aquinas. The rational order is at the core of a two-level theory. Firstly as a formal link that guarantees unity and structural coherence to the different dimensions of action, and secondly as the material content of the good life understood as the excellence of action, i.e. the rational structure of the different virtues and the particular types of activity that realise or contradict them.Keywords: moral philosophy, Aquinas, reason, virtue, law.

    • Abstract: Abstract: Is William of Ockham’s Ethics Voluntaristic': This paper holds that Ockham’s theological and philosophical conceptualism leads to moral voluntarism. To this end, the paper examines the meaning of following “the dictates of right reason” in the context of Ockhamist thought. This task requires investigating: (a) the meaning of the Ockhamist notion of the “good”; (b) the relationships between divine law and natural reason, on the one hand, and between divine Will and divine Wisdom, on the other; (c) the object of moral knowledge ; and (d) the contingency both of concrete moral norms and of the most basic principles of morality. The thesis is dialectically held, in discussion with some of the main English speaking interpreters of Ockham who, from the perspective of the history of Law, Ethics and Theology have held that Ockham’s conceptualism does not lead to moral voluntarism.Keywords: Ockham, moral voluntarism, natural reason, natural Law.

    • Abstract: Abstract - Does the Problem of the Incommensurability Exist in Aristotle' An analysis from the doctrine and hermeneutics of Paul Karl Feyerabend: Paul Karl Feyerabend holds a particular hermeneutic with regard to Aristotle’s scientific work. He invites to rethink the contemporary science from an “Aristotelian program of investigation”. He assures us that if science assumes his way of proceeding, the presence of metaphysical elements would not mean a problem for us. Our purpose is to make a critical analysis of the scope of this invitation and to intervene in the discussion of whether or not exists in his scientific practice the problem of incommensurability – as it is understood by Feyerabend. For this, we will show how Aristotle’s understanding of the phenomenon establishes a unity between facts and theories where the problem of incommensurability cannot be established.  Keywords: Feyerabend, Aristotle, Incommensurability, Phenomenon.

    • Abstract: Abstract - Primordial faith and horizon: Merleau-Ponty’s proposal for a new rationality. The main objective of the article is to clarify the most important features of what can be called a new rationality in the thought of Merleau-Ponty. Firstly, we recapitulate Merleau- Ponty’s philosophical proposal as an archaeological return to the primary experience of meaning. Secondly, the conception of ‘perceptual faith’ or ‘primordial faith’ as an institution of meaning is analyzed in detail. In this context, the central place that occupies the notion of world or horizon as the soil or homeland of all forms of rationality is established. The article critically discusses some of the positions held in this regard by Etienne Bimbenet.  Keywords: new rationality, perceptual faith, horizon, Merleau-Ponty.
