The discovery of Indian spiritual traditions is that, "work, and not culture is the fundamental aspect of being human". Work as karma is independent of Identity (samsara). Identity is the consequence of work, and culture is its composite effect. Clinging to culture dissipates work. Culture is reborn through habit, beyond contexts. Culture is samsar...

Does the ‘Zeitenwende’ herald the beginning of a new and as yet undefined open society realism? The present essay argues this question requires critical discussion of nature and value of realist political theory, particularly at a time where international society is accelerating to somewhere which is itself as yet unclear. Adding to revisionist res...

This paper examines the philosophy of Jean-Francois Lyotard in relation to the analytic philosophy of deep disagreement. It argues not just that his work has relevance for this debate, but that it offers a challenge to the ‘epistemic paradigm’ present in its academic literature, represented by the two most prominent sets of theories within it – the...

This paper examines works in two of the major streams of thought in contemporary Continental philosophy of religion and theology—theopoetics and political theology—that loosely hang together by two shared threads: philosopher‐cum‐(radical)theologian John D. Caputo and the question of how to live well with the Other. After examining each book in tur...

What is fundamental in vision has been discussed for millennia. For philosophical realists and the physiological approach to vision, the objects of the outer world are truly given, and failures to perceive objects properly, such as in illusions, are just sporadic misperceptions. The goal is to replace the subjectivity of the mind by careful physiol...

The use of genomic selection in agricultural animal breeding is in academic literature generally considered an ethically unproblematic development, but some critical views have been offered.

Contemporary political theory is a game. Individuals compete to publish in ‘top’ journals, to amass greater numbers of publications than their peers; then journal-ranking is combined with number of publications generating scores. The aim is to get the most points. Whoever gets the most points wins: they get the best jobs and the most prestige. This...

What could it mean to think “after the theological turn”? This article proposes one possible answer by reframing the theological turn in light of the way in which Paul’s kenosis serves as a metaphor for deconstruction in a variety of continental philosophers who are all nevertheless hostile to overt theologising. Tracking this notion through the hi...

By way of suggesti...

This article retrieves Freud’s Paul as a forgotten predecessor and untapped critic of the “return to Paul” in contemporary political theology and continental philosophy. Given that Sigmund Freud published Moses and Monotheism in 1939 having barely escaped from Vienna, the text’s reception has justly been dominated by the question of Freud’s identif...

Two traditions seem to be separated by an ocean of divergent ideas, traditions, histories and interests. Continental philosophy on the one hand, with phenomenologies, analytical philosophy and French theories, are grounded in old European traditions of intellectualism. American philosophy, on the other hand, appears as a new impetus, from transcend...

There has been much recent debate about the nature of the omnivoyant image that introduces Nicholas of Cusa’s De visione Dei. In this paper, I argue that Cusa’s concept of contraction and his ‘radical perspectivism’ lead us toward stretching the concept of omnivoyance beyond a simple dichotomy between a phenomenology of the image and a phenomenolog...

Emphasizing the importance of language is a key characteristic of philosophical reflection in general and of bioethics in particular.

Words Fail offers a numbers of formulations concerning representation which are never developed into a sustained argument.

Recent scholarship in economic anthropology examines how the intersection of multiple forms of temporality shapes the time of debt relations. This article builds on and refines these approaches by analysing debt as a social relation that ‘folds’ the time of other relations within itself.

Part 1 of 3. This paper proposes to address an epistemological rupture in philosophical knowledge that is often accounted for through the Analytical and Continental Philosophy names.

Richard Rorty stands out among analytically trained English language philosophers for the respect and attention he accords to philosophers in the post-Nietzschean tradition of Continental philosophy.

In this paper I revisit the debate concerning the distinction, which is sometimes made between “analytic” and “continental” philosophy. I look at the historical context in which the distinction came to prominence in the twentieth century, the reasons why it subsequently declined in popularity, and eventually had begun to be undermined. I argue that...

I have argued that the failure of Kantianism and utilitarianism to solve the problems of supererogation in particular and moral-demandingness in general, arise on account of their impartialism. I now claim that moral enquiry within the analytic tradition proceeds chiefly along impartialist lines. This chapter argues that because continental philoso...

An art of the everyday? Parting from Georges Perec and Vilhelm Hammershøi (Abstract) Contemporary continental philosophy seems to be deeply connected to art, whether it is poetry and literature (from Heidegger to Derrida), painting (Merleau-Ponty, Maldiney) or music (since Bergson). This connection is built upon the primacy of a trial of the invi...

The theological turn in continental philosophy has beckoned several new possibilities for theoretical discourse.

Jakob von Uexküll’s (1864-1944) account of Umwelt has been proposed as a mediating concept to bridge the gap between ecological psychology’s realism about environmental information and enactivism’s emphasis on the organism’s active role in constructing the meaningful world it inhabits. If successful, this move would constitute a significant step to...

I argue that the foundational question of continental philosophy of disability is the question of the meaning of ability. Engaging a range of canonical texts across the Western intellectual tradition, I explore three hermeneutic pathways toward this question, concluding with a discussion of its larger sociopolitical and philosophical stakes.
