This paper takes as a starting point the letter of Cardinal Angelo Sodano which is used as a preface in the various publications and translations of the Catholic Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church. In this letter Sodano highlights an aspect that he believes deserves special attention: ‘men and women are invited above all to discover th...

This paper explains why Clark’s Extended Mind thesis is not capable of sufficiently grasping how and in what sense external objects and technical artifacts can become part of our human cognition. According to the author, this is because a pivotal distinction between inside and outside is preserved in the Extended Mind theorist’s account of the rela...

The goal of this article is to shed light on Nietzsche's notion of reality through a critical examination of the notions "will to power," "struggle," and "organization." In the first section, I discuss the ontological status of the will to power. I then elaborate this notion on the basis of the (relation among the) concepts "organization" (section...
Article

The author of this paper starts by sketching a general framework for Peirce's ethical theory: first, he discusses very briefly Peirce's phenomenological categories; then, he outlines some implications of these categories for Peirce's concept of personal identity. In the rest of the paper he discusses successively within this framework Peirce's view...

Essentialists understand authenticity as an inherent quality of a person, object, artifact, or place, whereas constructionists consider authenticity as a social creation without any pre-given essence, factuality, or reality. In this paper, we move beyond the essentialist-constructionist dichotomy. Rather than focusing on the question whether authen...

Brain imaging technologies are increasingly used to find networks and brain regions that are specific to the functional realization of particular aspects of the self. In this paper, we aim to show how neuroscientific research and techniques could be used in the context of self-formation without treating them as representations of an inner realm. To...
Article
Full-text available
After several technological revolutions in which technologies became ever more present in our daily lives, the digital technologies that are currently being developed are actually fading away from sight. Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are not only embedded in devices that we explicitly “use” but increasingly become an intrinsic p...
Article
Full-text available
A pós-fenomenologia é um enfoque na filosofia da tecnologia que investiga como as tecnologias influenciam e moldam o mundo e o ego. Embora a pós-fenomenologia tenha expressado desde o início a ambição de oferecer uma estrutura não-essencialista e não-fundacionista, o desenvolvimento estrutural desse aspecto está virtualmente ausente. O pragmatismo...
Article
Full-text available
Nietzsche’s notion of “active forgetting” is employed to better understand the disruptive and destructive influence of collective trauma on cultural identity. Throughout the article genocide is taken as a cause of extreme trauma and used to illustrate this impact. Active forgetting in this context should not be confused with memories fading away; i...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, the author aims to show that transhumanists are confused about their own conception of the posthuman: transhumanists anticipate radical transformation of the human through technology and at the same time assume that the criteria to determine what is "normal" and what is "enhanced" are univocal, both in our present time and in the fut...
Article
Full-text available
Phenomenology is an approach in philosophy that emerged around the end of the 19th century. It aims to study and describe reality as it appears in concrete experiences. That description proceeds as much as possible independent of theories that provide causal explanations and free of assumptions that have not been questioned and investigated. The wo...
Article
Full-text available
According to Max Weber, the “fate of our times” is characterized by a “disenchantment of the world.” The scientific ambition of rationalization and intellectualization, as well as the attempt to master nature through technology, will greatly limit experiences of and openness for the transcendent, i.e. that which is beyond our control. Insofar as tr...

This paper explains how and in what sense technological artifacts can become part of our human cognition. It elaborates why Clark's Extended Mind thesis, as well as more conventional materialist theories of mind, is not sufficiently capable of grasping the influence of external objects and artifacts on the mind. This is, according to the author, du...
Article
Veel dank aan Bas Levering voor zijn kritische bespreking van De vele gezichten van de fenomenologie en zijn uiteindelijk oordeel dat het boek een 'aanwinst' is. Een gedetailleerde reactie op de recensie lijkt me onnodig, niet alleen omdat ik de kritiek, of in ieder geval een deel daarvan, niet wil 'wegredeneren', maar ook omdat ik denk dat aan vee...
Article
After having discovered that (good) reasoning requires a normative grounding, Peirce makes various attempts, scattered in different texts, to provide an ethical theory. According to him, logic, as the science of the means of acting reasonably, needs ethics to guide it by analyzing the ends to which those means should be directed. Ethics, however, i...

Article
Peirce offers us a perspective on identity that is less problematic than the Aristotelian, essentialist approach, which still latently, but deeply influences a lot of contemporary, analytic views on identity. The problem of the essentialist view is that it precludes the possibility of real novelty, and fails to account for the dynamic connectedness...
Article
Without question, the chief obstacle for English-language Nietzsche researchers is the absence of a reliable translation of the Nachlass corpus and the late writings in particular. Since 1967, English-only readers have been reliant on Kaufmann's translation and edition of The Will to Power, itself based on the 1906/1911 "Taschen" edition published...

In virtue of what do things have an identity? This question still lands us in great difficulties and confusion. Against the traditional Aristotelian view of reality, which clings to firmness and stability in the world, Nietzsche postulates his conception of reality as becoming. Nietzsche's alternative conception of the world is characterized as an...
