  • Kripke on Identity Statements (page 153)

    • Authors: Alex Blum
      Abstract: Alex Blum ABSTRACT: We show that Kripke’s argument for the necessity of identity statements relating objects a and b by their rigid designators demands an additional significant premise.  Download PDF

  • Hegel’s Treatment of the Free Will Problem: a Conceptual Oversight and
           Its Implications for Legal Theory (pages 155-174)

    • Authors: Robert Donoghue
      Abstract: Robert Donoghue ABSTRACT: G.W.F Hegel offers a thorough, complex, and unique theory of free will in the Philosophy of Right. In what follows, I argue that Hegel’s conceptualization of free will makes the mistake of collapsing the possibility of organic freedom (the ability to act freely of causal determination) into the potential for moral freedom …

  • The Early J.S. Mill on Marriage and Divorce (pages 175-185)

    • Authors: Janelle Pötzsch
      Abstract: Janelle Pötzsch ABSTRACT: This paper discusses Mill’s early essay on marriage and divorce (1832) and gives two possible sources of influence for it: Plato’s arguments on the appropriate scope of the law in book IV of his Republic and Unitarian ideas on motherhood. It demonstrates that Plato’s Republic and Mill’s essay both emphasize the crucial …

  • The Highest Good and the Relation between Virtue and Happiness: A Kantian
           Approach (pages 187-210)

    • Authors: Daniel Rönnedal
      Abstract: Daniel Rönnedal ABSTRACT: The paper develops a Kantian view of the highest good and the relation between virtue and happiness. Several Kantian theses are defended, among them the thesis that the highest good is realized only if every virtuous individual is happy, the view that virtue is neither necessary nor sufficient for happiness, and the …

  • An Inhuman God for Our Inhuman Times: Death in Heidegger’s Being and
           Time and Jesus’s Agony in the Garden (pages 211-232)

    • Authors: Rajesh Sampath
      Abstract: Rajesh Sampath ABSTRACT: This paper attempts a careful reading of chapter I of Division Two, particularly section 53, on death in Heidegger’s Being and Time (1927). Our aim is to deconstruct some of Heidegger’s assumptions while imagining the margins of his text that could warrant a comparison and contrast with the biblical theological material of …

  • The Cogito Paradox (pages 7-43)

    • Authors: Arnold Cusmariu
      Abstract: Arnold Cusmariu ABSTRACT: The Cogito formulation in Discourse on Method attributes properties to one conceptual category that belong to another. Correcting the error ends up defeating Descartes’ response to skepticism. His own creation, the Evil Genius, is to blame.  Download PDF

  • Looking for Black Swans: Critical Elimination and History (pages 45-77)

    • Authors: Michael F. Duggan
      Abstract: Michael F. Duggan ABSTRACT: This article examines the basis for testing historical claims and proffers the observation that the historical method is akin to the scientific method in that it utilizes critical elimination rather than justification. Building on the critical rationalism of Karl Popper – and specifically the deductive component of the scientific method called …

    • Authors: Samson Liberman
      Abstract: Samson Liberman ABSTRACT: The aim of this paper is a socio-philosophical analysis of attention deficit phenomenon, which is being detected at the intersection of several subject areas (psychiatry, theory of journalism, economics). The main methodological instrument of the study is a Marxist principle of alienation. Alienation of attention, which, on the one hand, is being …

  • Perfect Happiness (pages 89-116)

    • Authors: Daniel Rönnedal
      Abstract: Daniel Rönnedal ABSTRACT: In this paper, I will develop a new theory of the nature of happiness, or “perfect happiness.” I will examine what perfect happiness is and what it is not and I will try to answer some fundamental questions about this property. According to the theory, which I shall call “the fulfillment theory,” …

  • The Question as to Why We Have to Live Out the Agony of Our Epoch and its
           Fundamental Un-Answerability: A Reading of the Preface to the 1967 Edition
           of Klossowski’s’ Original 1947 Sade My Neighbor (pages 117-138)

    • Authors: Rajesh Sampath
      Abstract: Rajesh Sampath ABSTRACT: This paper excavates certain impulses that are buried in Pierre Klossowski’s 1968 edition of his original 1947 work, Sade My Neighbor. We argue that the self-suffocating nature of our historical present reveals the problem of an epochal threshold: in which twenty-first century democracy itself is threatened with death and violence in delusional …
