      Abstract: Abstract: MacIntyre’s criticisms of liberalism are well known but his constructive political philosophy is less widely appreciated. In this article, I outline MacIntyre’s neo-Aristotelian political theory by situating it in relationship to both Jeremy Waldron’s account of democratic accountability and the political realism of Bernard Williams and Raymond Geuss. MacIntyre shares Waldron’s concern that political institutions be accountable to ordinary political agents but he avoids the latter’s moralism by viewing democratic accountability as a structural feature of the relationship between practices and institutions. Likewise, MacIntyre’s critique of liberalism has much in common with that of Williams but MacIntyre differs from Williams in rejecting the latter’s view of political legitimacy as centered upon provisions of societal order and security. In contrast, MacIntyre’s approach is similar to Geuss’s account of political realism except that MacIntyre gives a much greater role to virtues and moral norms generated within locally delineated practices as key factors facilitating political action. In this sense, MacIntyre’s theory of political can be called a virtue realism.Keywords: Political realism, Virtue ethics, Democratic Accountability, Neo-Aristotelianism, Common good.

      Abstract: Abstract: Divine Hiddenness and the Concept of God - In contemporary debates, the problem of divine hiddenness can be numbered among the most prominent atheistic arguments. In this essay, I focus on a widely discussed version of this argument, i.e., the one developed by John Schellenberg (1959-). He bases the version at stake on a concept of God as an omnipotent, morally perfect, and ontologically perfect being. I argue that the way he develops his argument is simply inconsistent with each of these concepts. As a result, Schellenberg’s version of the divine hiddenness argument proves to be implausible.Keywords: Schellenberg, Thomas Aquinas, Omnipotence of God, Moral perfection of God, Ontological perfection of God.

      Abstract: Abstract: The standard of reasonableness and ‘the reasonable person standard’ enjoy a wide legal and political use but their origin is, in my view, within the ethics of virtues. The virtues refer to an ideal agent, useful for evaluations of human conduct. Certain theories in social psychology propose views which undermine the use of virtues in daily life. I believe that common practical reasoning leaves more room to virtue-concepts than what theories such as ‘Mixed Traits theory’ allow. If the argument is plausible we also have good reasons to hold the ‘unity of virtues’ (UV) thesis as a thesis which is conducive to integrate the concerns of different virtues, deflating conflicts. In our increasingly conflictual age UV seems required by reasonableness which, in turn, shows its importance for human flourishing.Keywords: Social psychology, Unity, Virtues, Reasonableness, Character.

      Abstract: Abstract: Divine Goodness and the evil-god challenge - Stephen Law has authored the evil-god challenge, i.e., the possibility of a completely evil god as a challenge for theistic philosophers; this challenge is grounded on the absence of a plausible proof of God’s good moral character. This paper calibrates the accuracy of the evil-god challenge when faced with Barry Miller’s strategy to elaborate on divine attributes.Keywords: Stephen Law, God, Attributes, Goodness, Evil.

      Abstract: Abstract: The article offers an analysis of the way to transcend the debates on the moral status of basic human goods in Thomistic natural-law theory, by starting from the common ground of both parties to the debate and then presenting a research on the status of human goods as juridical goods. The claim that natural rights are natural juridical goods is not only profoundly Thomistic; it also contains elements of a fully-fledged juridical line of argument. Without the passage from the moral status of the basic human goods to their juridical status, the legality of the natural law would be seen as inherently non-juridical. The article concludes by claiming that Thomistic juridical realism establishes a bridge – between the moral “ought” and a conception of the juridical “ought” – on which rights are essentially seen not as subjective right-claims, but as the juridical goods of the other person.Keywords: Basic human good, Juridical good, Natural right, Aquinas.

      Abstract: Abstract: In this article my intention will be to consider briefly how Aquinas’s discussion of the interior word serves as an analogy for the intelligible emanation of the Word from God. Creation through the Word explains the truth of things, as well as their beauty and light. Had Gadamer been more sympathetic to Thomistic thought in its original texts and not simply in what he considered to be “the dogmatic overlay superimposed on Aristotle... by Neo-Thomism,” he would have perhaps seen in Aquinas an ally in his recovery of the truth of things. I will relate the expressive character of language to being, as is found in Gadamer’s own exposition, and I will insist on the beauty of being and its light. I also refer at some length to the light of nous and of the agent intellect, which are simply mentioned by Gadamer without further development. And finally, I will end this article with a consideration of truth, whose manifestation is related to the light of beauty. Truth is explained as an event and as light.Keywords: Language, Being, Beauty, Truth, Light.

      Abstract: Abstract: Connatural and Legal Knowledge - First, this article tries to establish that practical reasoning includes at least one nondiscursive element. Second, the article makes the case that while that element is not discursive in nature, it is not irrational. In this sense, legal reasoning, as an example of practical, prudential judgment in this case, will also have non-discursive elements or moments. In this work we are referring to something that occurs at the level of affectivity, of appetites, whose act is called love, in a much more general sense than we commonly use. Affectivity affects the will although it is always ultimately indeterminate. But affectivity inclines it. It is now a question of considering how this inclination has an important effect on practical knowledge when it judges, because affectivity presents a certain good with intensity. That is why it is called judgment by inclination, affectivity, which is connaturalized with the object and so presented to the intellect. How such a thing occurs is what we are going to try to explain.Keywords: Connaturality, Legal reasoning, Non-discursiveness.

      Abstract: Abstract: Does Sceptical Theism Rebut the Atheological Inductive Argument from Evil' - Four decades ago, a debate started about the cogency of William Rowe’s inductive argument from evil: there probably are gratuitous evils; God would prevent the existence of gratuitous evils; therefore, probably God does not exist. This argument has deserved various responses from the sceptical theism arena. It is mainly objected that our knowledge of the realm of value, of the scope and global impact of actions and states of affairs, and finally of the divine reasons and designs is so precarious that we can draw no atheist conclusion from the apparently gratuitous suffering. Nevertheless, such approach has prompted several criticisms, most prominently the charge of leading into some moral scepticism that would paralyse our actions or, at least, would leave them unjustified. I recap here the essential contributions to this debate, assessing the arguments of either party, and I conclude that the charge of moral scepticism is well grounded. In addition, although the appearance of gratuitousness does not prove that such evils are genuinely so and should have been avoided by God, the mere appearance of pointless suffering, especially being so appalling, counts as an additional evil to be justified. Weighing all objections, I claim sceptical theism does not hold.Keywords: Sceptical theism, Gratuitous evil, Suffering, Moral scepticism, Theodicy.

      Abstract: Abstract: In this article I argue against some recent interpretations that Plato’s doctrine of love in the Symposium and the Phaedrus is not intellectualistic. For this reason I analyze Socrates’ speech in the Symposium trying to grasp the relationship between desire and contemplation. I defend that Plato’s treatment of erōs does not explain love as an act of the will but rather in terms of love as desire. In this sense, many of the critics to Plato’s notion of love come from the comparison with Aristotle’s notion of philia. I argue that while Plato is treating love as desire (how do I experience love), Aristotle focuses his analysis on the act of loving (to whom should I love).Keywords: Beauty, Contemplation, Desire, Friendship, Love.

      Abstract: Abstract: Sense Perception in Nicholas of Cusa - The theory of perception by external senses in the Nicholas of Cusa’ writings is the subject of this essay. Specifically, Cusanus’ ideas on the two following points is discussed: 1) the function of the spirits of the arteries in the perception; 2) the role of species and signs. In this context, the affinities and divergences with respect to the Aristotelianists’ position are highlighted. The sources of Cusanian gnoseology emerges in the context of his antagonism to the thomist ‘passive’ model of knowledge.Keywords: Nicholas of Cusa, Theory of perception, Gnoseology, Signs, Galen, History of Medicine.

      Abstract: Abstract: Know yourself and Ereignis: the inherent difficulties of the problem of the life as subject of the life - This paper aims to examine inherent difficulties of the possibility of human life to make itself subject of its own inquiry. By focusing on Plato’s warnings about the Delphic mandate “know yourself”, we will pointing out in what sense it could be a self-ignorance. Then, this self-ignorance will be interpreted from Martin Heidegger’s early considerations, to show how it derives from an objectifying tendency corresponding to the third person’s attitude. By taking the concept Er-eignis (appropriation) -used by the young Heidegger- as an indication, we will explore a possible way of considering the self apart from an accentuation of a reified I. Thus, it will propose to understand the Greek “know yourself” as an apprehension of the particular sense in which the own life unfolds according to its rhythm of appropriation of that, what it lives.Keywords: Life, History, Objectified I, Self, Appropriation.

      Abstract: Abstract: The analytical approach to the history of philosophy and medieval philosophy - In recent decades we have seen the emergence of a new approach to the History of Philosophy in connection with the Analytical tradition. In this paper, I propose to show the link between the birth of the Analytical approach to the History of Philosophy and the work of three figures from the History of Medieval Philosophy in the 20th century: Kretzmann, Pinborg and Kenny. Despite de numerous works dealing with the analytical approach, the role played by these three authors in the constitution of this approach continues to be neglected.Keywords: Analytical philosophy, History of philosophy, Medieval philosophy, Analytical approach to the History of Philosophy, Cornell School.

      Abstract: Abstract: The well-known Principle of Plenitude has it that everything that exists in some possible world exists in the actual world. I argue for an amended version of this principle: If there’s a possible world in which something lacks some positive property, then there’s an object in the actual world that lacks that property. That is, all positive universally held properties in the actual world are necessarily universally held. This rules out that for some positive property, everything in the actual world merely happens to have it. After having presented and defended the argument, I show that it has a wide range of corollaries, such as that there are mereologically simple and composite things, physical and non-physical things, caused and uncaused things, and contingent and necessarily existing things. The argument has three premises. The first premise is the thesis that there are no things that do not exist. The second premise is a Fregean theory of linguistic meaning. According to the third premise, two meanings coincide if and only if their reference sets coincide. The notion of a reference set is defined in the paper.Keywords: Semantics, Meaning, Reference, Ontology, Positive Properties, Possible Worlds.

      Abstract: Abstract: Plato and the Usefulness of the Idea. On the Function of the Idea of the Good - The dialectician knows that Ideas are not ultimate entities, after which it is impossible to ask again. For this reason, precisely, the dialectician differs from the mathematician. The famous "Doctrine of Ideas", as it has been closely linked to Plato throughout the history of thought until today, responds to a representation that belongs to the perspective of the mathematician. As a mathematical formulation, with its useless duplication of reality, it has already been rightly criticized by Aristotle. However, what was subjected to criticism in this way was a doctrine of ideas without dialectics. To this extent, it remains detached from the idea of the Good. The Platonic treatment of the idea of the Good shows that the knowledge related to this idea can never be given entirely in the form of a knowledge related to objects. Instead, the idea of the Good refers to the practical knowledge, if such knowledge is not to be incoherent and devoid of purpose, and useless for who owns them. This point constitutes one of the lasting fruits of Platonic thought on the idea of the Good. Plato diagnosed the provisional character of all objective knowledge and warned that neither the best theory nor the best system of rules is of any use, if there is a lack of practical competence – whose acquisition requires a sustained and systematic exercise – to deal with theories and rules in a useful way, that is, in a way that serves the actual end of the agent/knower.Keywords: Plato, Wieland, Doctrine of ideas, Good, Polis, Practical knowledge.

      Abstract: Abstract: The Idea of the Tragic at the Origins of German Idealism: Schelling, Hölderlin, Hegel - To the ancient Greeks we owe the tragedy as an artistic genre, but they have ignored the tragic as an aesthetic or philosophical category. This concept is rather a modern acquisition, which was imposed at the end of the eighteenth century thanks mainly to Schiller and the philosophers of the first romantic generation. But how and why did the idea of the tragic arise' The hypothesis that the article wants to explore is that it was born in the effort to overcome the dualisms that the critical system of Kant bequeathed to philosophical thought and in particular to Schelling, Hölderlin and Hegel. The origins of the tragic as a philosophical category are therefore intimately connected with those of German idealism.Keywords: Hegel, Hölderlin, German idealism, Kant, Schelling, Tragedy.

      Abstract: Abstract: Axiological rationality and disenchantment of the world. New interpretations of Max Weber’s “Entzauberung” – How do Max Weber’s works deal with “the philosophical problem of our time”, that is, the claim to define a field, both in society and in history, in which an action different from the zweckrational type can and must exist' And, within it, what role does a “non-consequentialist” conception of axiological rationality play' There is an “implicit text” in Weber’s writings which can be understood from the perspectives of M. Scheler, L. Strauss, R. Boudon. And, in particular, from the very recent interpretations by R. Spaemann and H. Jonas on the concept of “disenchantment of the world”. “With Weber and beyond Weber” implies to acknowledge in advance that the question on the “normativity of reality” is preeminent insofar it allows to overcome the split between “facts and values”, which ultimately does not allow us to understand how “the reality of the fact cannot be separate from its quality” (R. Aron).Keywords: Rationality, Facts and Values, Disenchantment of the World, Hans Joas, Robert Spaemann.

      Abstract: Abstract: The article explores the problem of the foundation of human unity in the present situation in which the idea of the human being having an essence or inherent nature is essentially denied. In this situation, new heuristic possibilities of the Kantian position of human beings as “ends in themselves” are revealed. A non-metaphysical interpretation of this thesis makes it possible to reveal the basis of “the human” in its noumenal dimension.Keywords: Kant, end in itself, human being, consciousness, freedom, phenomenon, noumenon.

      Abstract: Abstract: Max Weber and secularization today – Despite of the widespread belief that Weberian theories on secularization and moral polytheism shall be considered as obsolete, this essay tries to show their value for our time. In particular, it focuses on the stoic aspect of Weberian individualism, rather than the relativist and nichilist one.Keywords: Secularisation, Rationalisation, Individualisation, Polytheism, Political decision.

      Abstract: Abstract: This paper discusses the work of Alphonsus de Castro, one of the main sources of Francisco Suárez. Alphonsus de Castro is known among present-day scholars as “the father of criminal law”, at least of the Spanish criminal law. He elaborates a theory of justice that is usually identified as being voluntarist and contrary to the great tradition of Salamanca initiated by Francisco de Vitoria and Domingo de Soto. A detailed reading of de Castro’s work leads, however, to a different conclusion: though de Castro comes close to a decisionist stance, for example, when explaining issues such as the immutability of the natural law in view of the sacrifice of Isaac, his overall teaching is more closely related to the tradition of Salamanca than what it is usually believed. Hence, although he defines the law as a precept of the will, he does not concede absolute autonomy to the will, for it is a power that must always follow the mandates of reason in its practical exercise.Keywords: Alphonsus de Castro, voluntarism, will, law, Francisco Suárez.

      Abstract: Abstract: Commentators are puzzled by Aristotle’s remark about the possibility of the soul being in the body like a sailor in a ship at the end of De an. II.1, a chapter where the soul is described as the inseparable entelecheia of the body. Based on Philoponus’ account of the soul as a dual entelecheia and considering the phenomenological way in which we come to know the soul, I explain that the soul may be both inseparable from the body as its entelecheia and yet separable in another respect.Keywords: Aristotle, Philoponus, Soul, Entelecheia, Separation.
