Technology is a prominent projection of human reason upon the world. It is an attempt to make the world fit in with what we imagine to be the ideal for us. Human beings, unlike other animals, are capable of understanding their limitations and can not only reflect on these limitations but also envisage what the human condition should be. This chapte...

O mundo encontra-se numa situação de pandemia e os dirigentes têm adoptado medidas extraordinárias para lhe fazer face. No nosso país, o presidente Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa reconheceu o SARS-CoV-2, causador da COVID-19, como motivo para declarar o estado de emergência. Esta posição de emergência implica uma reorganização profunda da vida social dos...
Article
Este artigo examina o impacto do problema de causalidade na filosofia moral de Kant, mais especificamente a influência de Hume na visão de Kant sobre o livre arbítrio. Em uma investigação sobre o entendimento humano, Hume argumenta que não podemos saber apenas por meio de nossas capacidades intelectuais que efeito um determinado evento trará sem um...

Conference Paper
As is common knowledge, our way of life is not sustainable. From climate change to the consumption of resources, the manifestations of unsustainability are constantly increasing and a change in our way of life is urgently needed. Such a change must inevitably be linked to environmental ethics. The solutions presented within philosophical reflection...
Conference Paper
The focus of my argument is that Kantian morality has a synthetic a priori dimension which allows not only an organization from the practical point of view, but also a moral knowledge from the theoretical point of view. In order to support this position, I examine the passages where Kant refers to the synthetic a priori and try to show the relation...
Thesis
This dissertation examines the impact of the problem of causality on Kant’s moral philosophy, more specifically the influence of Hume on Kant's view of free will. As is well known, Kant considers that Hume was responsible for awaking him from his “dogmatic slumber” (Prolegomena, A 13). In An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding, Hume seeks to exa...

This paper examines the impact of the problem of causality on Kant’s moral philosophy, more specifically the influence of Hume on Kant's view of free will. Kant seeks to answer this problem in his moral philosophy. I claim that the concept of “transcendental” is in Kant the key not only for answering the theoretical problem of causality but also to...

Esta comunicação examina o impacto do problema da causalidade na filosofia de Kant, mais especificamente a influência de Hume na visão kantiana sobre o transcendental. Como é bem conhecido, Kant considera que Hume foi responsável por despertá-lo de seu “sono dogmático” (Prolegomena, A 13). Em An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding Hume procura e...

Project
Metaphors are crucial instruments of communication, especially in chronic care communication. They can make technical or unfamiliar concepts familiar, and thus can be used for explaining medical notions or promoting adherence, compliance, or lifestyle changes. However, at the same time, they can be sources of misunderstanding and confusion. Choosing the most effective metaphors thus becomes a fundamental clinical challenge for chronic care. The project has three objectives, two theoretical and one practical. First, a pragmatic and functional theory of metaphor interpretation will be developed, filling a gap in the literature of philosophy of language. The idea is to conceive metaphors as the object of a process of best explanation of meaning, in which the various presumptions concerning the possible function of the metaphor in the given dialogue, language use, beliefs and values are assessed. This model is aimed at pointing out the role of context and common knowledge in metaphor understanding. The second objective is to develop a coding scheme for capturing degrees of misunderstanding in dialogues, addressing a crucial problem in communication and discourse studies. The communicative effectiveness of a metaphor will be evaluated based on how the interlocutor replies to the metaphorical utterance (the interlocutor’s uptake of the utterance). The empirical goal, concerning the area of communication in diabetes care, is to provide an evidence-based corpus of effective (and ineffective) metaphors concerning diabetes, in which they are also classified and assessed based on the theoretical advances, pointing out whether, why, and how they can be the source of understanding and misunderstanding.
