The article attempts at a biosemiotic elucidation of John Paul II’s concept of human sexuality as contained in the doctrine of the “language of the body” which he expounded on in his “theology of the body.” It purports that the conventional human expressions used in marriage rites or ceremonies such as “I take you as my wife – as my husband – and I...

Personal epistemology refers to personal theories of knowledge and how knowledge is justified. The trajectory of intellectual and moral development proceeds in three major stages. Firstly, simplistic or black and white thinking; secondly, relativistic thinking which considers different perspectives as equally valid; and finally, the attainment of e...

Modern societies are characterized by groups of people sharing a common space but upholding a plurality of “lifeworlds.” On this account Habermas claims that modern law should assume the role of being the primary medium of social integration in modern society. Although both traditional and modern law possess instrumental power of enforcement on the...

As a logician, Peirce formulated the theory of sign as a tool to guide the development of the sciences. He undertook this project out of his devotion to the Truth. Although he spent more than fifty years on the study of signs, he distinguished his later doctrine as having a distinct Aristotelian influence, that is, of the scholastic kind. With this...

Plato was a student of the admirable Socrates, famed as the wisest man in Athens, 1 thus for the most part we find him using the character of Socrates in his dialogues as the person elaborating most of his views about certain topics. In his earlier writings, Plato reflects Socrates' passion for living a virtuous life, thus giving us a glimpse of wh...

Language of the Body" In saying that the sign of marriage as a sacrament of the Church is constituted on the basis of the language of the body, we are using analogy, the analogy of attribution. It is obvious that the body as such does not "speak," but man speaks, rereading that which requires to be expressed precisely on the basis of the "body," of...

To most people, prosperity is "having more money to spend for your needs" or "possessing more goods" or something similar. Wealth or economic prosperity is the most common indicator of development.
