HALÍK, Tomáš. De namiddag van het christendom. Collationes: Vlaams tijdschrift voor theologie en pastoraal. 2013, roč. 42, č. 2, s. 209-2014. ISSN 0776-8354. Anotace: Christianity looks different than usual. Where are we in the history of European Christianity? What are the "signs of the times" and how should we answer them? Does Christianity still stand at the beginning of its history, as Teilhard de Chardin insisted, or does it lie on its deathbed, as many since Voltaire - and most recently some protagonists of the "new atheism" - have predicted? In this reflection, the author would like to make a different diagnosis: Christianity in Europe is characterized by a persistent midlife crisis, which only can be overcome when it realizes that it stands at a critical crossroads and that it has to choose one of the many possible directions.

JIRSA, Jakub. To ergon tou anthropouHungarian Philosophical Review - Magyar Filozófiai Szemle. 2013, roč. 57, č. 4, s. 9-23. ISSN 0025-0090. Anotace: The article offers an interpretation of the so-called ergon argument in Aristotle’s nicomachean ethics I.7. I argue that the argument offers a good ground for interpreting human happiness as theória and that the argumentation is coherent with the rest of the nicomachean ethics as well. The article provides answers to three widespread critiques of the ergon argument. I claim that the ergon argument covers both the moral and intellectual virtues, further I offer a possible interpretation of the difference between theória of human beings and theória belonging to gods. Finally, I try to explain in what sense a good of human being is good for a human being at the same time.

KOCUREK, Jakub. Tree Beings in Tibet: Contemporary Popular Concepts of Klu and Gnyan as a Result of Ecological Change. Journal of Ethnology and Folkloristics. 2013, roč. 7, č. 1, s. 19-30. ISSN 1736-6518. Anotace: The article deals with the perception of trees in Tibet. It focuses on ideas on supernatural beings believed to dwell in trees, particularly klu and gnyan, which form a part of the popular or so called nameless religion. The study is based on fieldwork undertaken in the Tibetan areas of India and Nepal (the Spiti valley and Dolpo) among people of Dolpo origin living elsewhere and Tibetans in exile from different regions of Tibet. Gathered narratives and reappearing myth patterns are presented and discussed. The findings from the fieldwork are compared with the idea of tree beings found in ritual texts studied by Western scholars. The difference between these two sources are striking: popular traditions associate trees mainly with klu, whereas the ritual texts with gnyan. To explain the possible cause of this discrepancy, contemporary theories about the ecological history of the Tibetan Plateau are employed.

THEIN, Kartl. Some Conceptual Difficulties in Aristotle’s De caelo I.9. Rhizomata. 2013, roč. 1, č. 1-2, s. 63-84. ISSN 2196-5110. Anotace: The article discusses two issues implied by the structure of De caelo I.9: Aristotle’s further defence of the uniqueness of the universe and, in more detail, the general question of whether the cosmology of De caelo overlaps, or is even compatible, with Aristotle’s theology including the notion of the Prime Mover. It offers an analysis of several long-standing difficulties including the question of whether the lines 279a18–22 imply an external mover of the heavens. The negative answer that the article defends does however not solve the problem of how Aristotle conceives the source of natural cosmic motion. In this respect, the article pays close attention to the peculiar conception of the animate supralunary matter and to De caelo II.3, 286a7–21 as a text that complements I.9 by relying on the holistic self-motion that implies no Prime Mover, but requires the separation of the supralunary and the sublunary spheres.


HALÍK, Tomáš. Die Pharisäerbrille abnehmen. Die Politische Meinung: Monatsschrift zu Fragen der Zeit. 2012, roř. 57, č. 509, s. 39-43. ISSN 0032-3446. Anotace: Eine Artikel über die paradoxen Bezogenheit von christlichem Glauben und Atheismus, Kirche und Modernität. Das Verhältnis von Kirche und Modernität kann als das zweier Brüder verstanden werden. Die Existenz des jeweils anderen bestätigt die eigenen Aufgaben und den eigenen Wert. 

HAVRDA, Matyáš. Categories in Stromata VIII. Elenchos. 2012, roč. 33, č. 2, s. 197-225. ISSN 0392-7342. Anotace: The article is an analysis of a chapter dealing with the Aristotelian categories in the so-called eighth book of Stromata by Clement of Alexandria, a collection of notes from a philosophical source (or sources) concerned with the theory of demonstration and related issues. Though seldom mentioned in contemporary scholarship, this short chapter is a valuable testimony of the reception of the Categories in the philosophy of the Imperial period and before the time of Alexander of Aphrodisias. After a brief survey of its contents, the article investigates parallels in philosophical literature and explores the function of the chapter within the larger context of Stromata viii. In the final section the question of Clement's source is addressed. Drawing on earlier research concerning other parts of the eighth book, the article argues that in this case, too, Galen's lost writing on demonstration is a likely candidate

JIRSA, Jakub. Sophists, Names and Democracy. Croatian Journal of Philosophy. 2012, roč. 12, č. 35, s. 125-138. ISBN 1333-1108. Anotace: The article argues that the Euthydemus shows the essential connection between sophistry, right usage of language, and politics. It shows how the sophistic use of language correlates with the manners of politics which Plato associates with the sophists. First, it proceeds by showing the explicit criticism of both brothers, for they seem unable to fulfill the task given to them. Second, several times in the dialogue Socrates criticizes the sophists' use of language, since it is totally inappropriate to fulfill the above-mentioned pedagogical task. I will show that this critique mirrors a deeper conflict between two different conceptions of language. Finally, the article suggests that the sophistic erroneous use of language has direct implications on their political theory, which Plato criticizes in the Euthydemus as well as in the Republic.

MARKOVÁ, Kateřina. Inexactness? Yes, but yet Masterfully Defined : The Role of the Humorous Comic in Concluding Unscientific Postscript. Kierkegaard Studies. Yearbook. 2012, roč. 2012, č. 1, s. 119-144. ISSN 1430-5372. Anotace: This paper investigates the relationship between the comic and humor, the border territory to religiousness. It points out the particularity of the comic through which humor manifests itself. This comic will here be referred to as "the humorous comic." It turns out that this form of the comic differs from the comic used against presumptuous forms of the religious in a crucial respect. It plays a safeguarding role, which makes it impossible for us to interpret it with certainty, and at the same time reminds us of the importance which the comic has both for our attempts to approach the religiousness of hidden inwardness and Christianity, as well as for our attempts to understand Climacus' book on this subject.

PALKOSKA, Jan. Are Humean Beliefs Pyrrhonian Appearances? : Hume's Critique of Pyrrhonism Revisited. Journal of Scottish Philosophy. 2012, roč. 10, září 2012, s. 183-198. ISSN 1479-6651. Anotace: The aim of the paper is to reassess Hume's handling of scepticism in its Pyrrhonian form. I argue that, contrary to what Hume declares, his own philosophy comes close to what Sextus Empiricus sets out as the essential moments of the Pyrrhonian ἀγωγή, at least in one crucial respect: I contend that Hume's conception of belief is in line with precisely the type of doxastic state which Sextus ascribes to the Pyrrhonian sceptic as appropriate for ʻfollowing appearancesʼ. Then I show that if such an affinity is established, Hume's attack against Pyrrhonism, launched in Enquiry XII, II, is rendered toothless.

PUNČOCHÁŘ, Vít. Some Modifications of Carnap's Modal Logic. Studia Logica. 2012, roč. 100, č. 3, s. 517-543. ISSN 0093-3215. Anotace: In this paper, Carnap's modal logic C is reconstructed. It is shown that the Carnapian approach enables us to create some epistemic logics in a relatively straightforward way. These epistemic modifcations of C are axiomatized and one of them is compared with intuitionistic logic. At the end of the paper, some connections between this epistemic logic and Medvedev's logic of fnite problems and inquisitive semantics are shortly discussed.

THEIN, Karel. Imagination, Self-Awareness, and Modal Thought at Philebus 39-40. Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy. 2012, roč. 42, léto 2012, s. 109-149. ISSN 0265-7651. Anotace: This article revisits Plato's image of our soul as a book where two craftsmen are at work, a scribe and a painter (Philebus 39-40). Its focus is on how the painter's elaborations pertain to some important formal features of our belief-formation. A special emphasis is on the relevance of Plato's image as both a commentary upon and an instance of the discursive thought understood as the soul's inner dialogue. In the Philebus, Socrates' comments are meant to clarify not the conditions of a narrowly conceived theoretical epistemology, but the richness of the everyday thought processes including their modal and counterfactual dimensions. The clarification of these issues goes together with a new treatment of the false pleasures of the soul and their anticipatory character, and with an analysis of the implications of Socrates' remarks on the painter in our soul for the issue of self-awareness. The proposed interpretation of Philebus 39-40, which argues for a rather strong connection between the pleasures and pains of the soul, the latter's self-awareness and the modal thinking that relies on comparing various mental representations, is then confronted with the Wax Tablet and the Aviary models of the mind from the Theaetetus, and also with some contemporary theories of belief-formation and imagination.

THEIN, Karel. A Much-Disputed "Whole" at Phaedrus 270. Croatian Journal of Philosophy, 2012, roč. 12, č. 35, s. 139-152. ISSN 1333-1108. Anotace: The article discusses several possible interpretations of Socrates' suggestion that we cannot "understand the nature of soul satisfactorily without understanding the nature of the whole" (Phaedrus 270c1-2). Against those who take the "whole" implied here for the cosmic whole, it argues that nothing in the Phaedrus justifies this interpretation. In the light of both Socrates' conception of rhetoric in this dialogue and his image of the tripartite soul in the palinode, the "whole" whose knowledge is prerequisite to knowing the soul's nature is better understood as either the whole of the composed soul or the whole soul-body compound. The real problem of the passage, the article concludes, is that we lack any clear criteria that would enable us to decide between these two readings. At the same time, the dramatic progress of the dialogue makes it possible to argue that Phaedrus briefly misunderstands Socrates' meaning by reading in it some cosmological connotations. This possibility notwithstanding, it is more likely that, from the perspective of the tripartite soul and its actions and passions, "the whole soul-body compound" and "the whole soul" are two equally defensible solutions to the puzzle.

THEIN, Karel. L'âme, l'homme et la connaissance de soi dans le Premier Alcibiade. Chôra. Revue d’Études Anciennes et Médiévales. 2012, roč. 2011-2012, č. 9-10, s. 171-202. ISSN 1583-8617. Anotace: L'article traite de la connaissance de soi telle qu'elle est recommandée et analysée par Socrate dans l'Alcibiade Majeur de Platon. Tout en prennant en compte le double contexte de la littérature grecque (et plus spécialement de l'Oedipe roi de Sophocle) et des autres dialogues (surtout du Phèdre), il suit de près le lien très étroit entre l'effort de se connaître soi-même et la conception plus large de la nature humaine, qui, aux yeux de Socrate, semble inviter a distinguer l'âme et le corps comme deux entités réelles tout en interdissant leur séparation nette et définitive. La dualité du corps et de l'âme est aussi la raison principale pour laquelle le discours sur la connaissance intellectuelle de soi ne cesse d'être dédoublée par les descriptions de la lutte, dans l'homme, entre la composante corpolle et la composante psychique. Cette lutte, où il s'agit de gagner le pouvoir sur l'individu agissant, est ce qui donne au discours de Socrate une dimension politique assez importante.


HILL, James. Hume's Theory of Causality : Is There More than One?. Teorie Vědy. Theory of Science. 2011, roč. 33, č. 2, s. 233-249. ISSN 1210-0250. Anotace: It is traditionally assumed that there is only one theory of causality in Hume's writings. In this article it is shown that we can distinguish between an early and mature theory. It is argued that the mature theory, strongly influenced by Newton's physics, accords with the New Hume (sceptical realist) interpretation by asserting that real causal relations are not accessible to the human mind.

KARFÍKOVÁ, Lenka. Eternity according to Plotinus, Enn. III,7. Freiburger Zeitschrift für Philosophie und Theologie. 2011, č. 58(2), s. 437-452. ISSN 0016-0725. Anotace: The study is concerned with Plotinus' conception of eternity (and time) according to Ennead III,7 [45], 1-6. While eternity means having always the whole of one's being, time means not having it wholly at any time, but longing for it incessantly, rushing to it and thus imitating its full possession, which is typical of eternity. For this reason, the proper predication of eter- nity is only "is" (not "was" or "will be"); as far as time is concerned, the fu- ture towards which it rushes is pivotal here. Apart from eternity (aiôn) and time as its image, Plotinus also speaks of "everlastingness" (aidiotês), which is a characteristic of eternity as its nature. "Everlastingness" or "always" predicated of time and eternity are not identical. With respect to time they mean "in every phase"; as for eternity, they render every moment in which it is viewed by the temporal soul. In other words, everlastingness (in our interpretation) is the face of eternity which reveals itself to the soul in its temporal nature.

Anotace: The article includes a German translation and an interpretation of the sixth fragment of the anonymous Turin palimpsest Commentary on Plato's "Parmenides". A detailed analysis of this fragment shows that it contains an original theory of divine consciousness which has no parallel in the history of ancient philosophy.

PETŘÍČEK, Miroslav; Kavalír, Ondřej. Romanticism and Romanticisms. World Literature Studies. 2011, roč. 20, č. 3, s. 86-89. ISSN 1337-9690.

ŠPINKA, Štěpán. Nothing Is in Itself One. Internationales Jahrbuch für Hermeneutik. 2011, roč. 2011, č. 10, s. 241-269. ISSN 1619-7569. Anotace: Motion and relation are key themes in later Platonic philosophy. The article examines the role of these themes in Protagoras's "secret doctrine" in Plato''s Theaetetus. This doctrine is based on a combination of specific relationality (namely the "bipolar" subjective relationality whose model is perception) and a specific motion (namely the motion of generation and corruption) and forms an "ontological basis" for the epistemological-ethical conglomerate of Protagoras'' sophistic rhetoric. Plato in his later philosophy oppose this conglomerate with an alternative ontology founded on a different and wider conception of relation and motion and in this way incorporates some modified elements of this "secret doctrine" and rhetoric in his own philosophy

Anotace: An examination of Locke's attitude to Scholastic philosophy that shows he had more in common with the Scholastics than he himself would have admitted. An account of Locke's distinction between primary and secondary qualities demonstrating its philosophical and historical significance, and linking it to an understanding of causality.

HILL, James. The Synthesis of Empiricism and Innatism in Berkeley's Doctrine of Notions. Berkeley Studies. 2010, roč. 21, č. 2010, s. 3-15.1947-3737. Anotace: The article shows how Berkeley has been wrongly categorised as an empiricist. In fact his doctrine of notions shows a receptivity to innatism.

ISBN 978-80-89491-04-9. Anotace: In this paper author, building on the work of Émile Benveniste and Henri Meschonnic, also tries to develop a concept of fictionality that would be anchored in the very medium of speech, rather than in the sphere to which the speech refers.

Anotace: The article deals with Cantor’s argument for the non-denumerability of reals somewhat in the spirit of Lakatos’ logic of mathematical discovery. At the outset Cantor’s proof is compared with some other famous proofs such as Dedekind’s recursion theorem, showing that rather than usual proofs they are resolutions to do things differently.

Zürich - Amman : European Abrahamic Forum / Konrad Adenauer Stiftung / Regional Human Security Centre, 2010. s. 100-108. ISBN 978-3-00-033176-3.  Anotace: An alternative view of the minority – majority problem in the society. Historical and philosophical analysis of the European concept of the civil society and its real implementation: The starting point is an individual, the society is conceived as a collection of individuals, taken as specific instances of a universal human being. The change of the perspective is needed: The starting point should be the collective identity based on the essential and existential axioms of given social group, in which individuals participate and from which they draw their existential and social value.

RITTER, Martin. Vom Sinn der Übersetzung. Versuch einer Gegenüberstellung von Benjamin und Gadamer. Internationales Jahrbuch für Hermeneutik, 2010, roč. 2010, č. 9, s. 311-326. Anotace: Der Text stellt eine Gegenüberstellung von Gadamers und Benjamins Sprachphilosophie vor. Nachdem die wichtigsten Streitpunkte der Sprachauffassung Gadamers bestimmt sind, geht die Analyse zur Auslegung der Sprachphilosophie Benjamins über und versucht in ihr eine alternative Auffassung dieser problematischen Punkte zu begreifen. Im Hintergrund einer vergleichenden Analyse der Hauptprobleme beider Sprachkonzeptionen steht die Frage, worin die Hauptaufgabe des menschlichen Verstehens besteht und wie im Hinblick auf diese Aufgabe der Wahrheitsbegriff zu konzipieren ist. Aufgrund dieser Analyse ergibt sich eine Möglichkeit, den Begriff der hermeneutischen Erfahrung, genauer gesagt den Begriff der Anwendung als eine Übersetzung im Sinne Benjamins zu begreifen.

ISBN 978-1-904987-46-8.  Anotace: The goal of the article is to present Gödel’s theorems not as a direct refutation of Hilbert’s solvability axiom (according to which all problems which human mind poses must be solvable) but only as an impulse to phrase it with more caution, in such a way that some famous unsolvable questions such as the Continuum Hypothesis are no longer regarded as real problems.

Anotace: Urbicide as an ethno-nationalistic strategy shows that killing the civilians was not enough to establish the ethnically clean territory, but that genocide continues in destroying the material culture of the “enemy” as the evidence of his existence. The paper relies on the Arendt’s concept of polis and agora as the space of freedom and equality of differences, necessarily built for non-violent political communication between different social classes.

ISSN 1770-9687.  Anotace: Der Verfasser begründet seine Hypothese, dass die “proklische” Interpretation des Timaios 35a in der Tat von Porphyrios herrührt, der in diesem Zusammenhang die Lehre von Relationsmodalitäten der Identität und der Andersheit formulierte. (The author argues that the “Proclean” interpretation of Timaeus 35a really originates from Porphyry who in connection with his exegesis on this passage formulated the neoplatonic doctrine of the relation modalities of identity and difference.)

Why Is It Easier to Love Rex and Fiffi than Our Teenage Children? s. 135-144. ISBN 978-0-8126-9653-0.  Anotace: The volume is a book for wider public in which “twenty philosophers and dog lovers discuss their experiences with dogs and explore dog/related themes in metaphysics and ethics”. The paper considers the difference between our relation to dogs and children on the background of the contemporary theories of love and attachment. In the first part the text outlines the common aspects of loving dogs and children that are based on their dependent position. In the second part the difference in the relationship to children is shown to stem from the fact that they must grow up into autonomous adults that are dependent no more. This process generates difficulties that never appear in the relationship to dogs.

Würzburg : Königshausen, 2007, s. 184-195. Orbis Phaenomenologicus. ISBN 978-3-8260-3708-5.  Anotace: This article tackle s the mind-body problem in the context of a philosophical analysis of action. In the structure of action the possibility of a particular tension is already contained-action often presents itself as endeavour. This tension has, in the philosophical tradition, been more than once interpreted as a case of the distinction between spirit and body. This paper attempts, following the example of the phenomenological analysis of action in P. Ricoeur (in his early work), to demonstrate the consequences of this metaphysical dualism. Metaphysical dualism is then abandoned and dualism is preserved only in the form of a lived duality. There follows an attempt to interpret the experience of endeavour in another way, using the conceptions of Merleau-Ponty (le comportement), and of M. Heidegger (das Verstehen). The paper attempts to describe the experience of lived dualism and to offer the kind of conception of action which does not require metaphysical dualism.

CHLUP, Radek. The Ritualization of Language in the Hermetica. Aries. Journal for the Study of Western Esotericism. 2007, roč. 2007, č. 7, s. 133-159. ISSN 1567-9896.  Anotace: Ancient Hermetic treatises mainly consists of ideas and arguments borrowed from Greek philosophy. When read from its perspective, however, they appear confused and incoherent. Clearly, the language of philosophy is used by their authors in a very much non-philosophical way. In this article I build on contemporary anthropological approaches to the study of ritual language and argue that in the Hermetica philosophical language changes its meaning and becomes "ritualized". Their arguments should thus not just be read in terms of what they say but even more in terms of the effect on the audience they want to achieve. The aim of Hermetism was to relate to God in an immediate way, without the help of traditional religious structures. The language of philosophy seemed helpful due to its universalist ambitions but it needed to be purged of its "useless" intellectual aspects and turned to its proper religious use (cf. Asclepius 12-14).

ISSN 0776-3824.  Anotace: During the last 100 years, several interpretations of the Thesmophoria have been advanced. Following the typology of H.S. Versnel, we can classify them as substantive, functionalist and cosmological. The three approaches can be seen as complementary, but in practice they are hardly ever pursued simultaneously. In my article, I examine how they fit together. In particular, I re-examine the subject of fertility, asking how it fits in with the wider social and ideological issues which Detienne and others have drawn attention to and which to our mind have little connection with agriculture or human reproduction. As an answer I offer a synthetic interpretation that places fertility in a wider cosmological context and shows it as interconnected with all the other levels of the festival.

Similarly, as an attempt of grasping the things, language is an activity of mind calling out the significances from the depth of its own memory. As a result, mind relates to itself exactly in time and in language, always as to its own span shaped through other things, i.e. as to its own memory.)

ISSN 1619-7569.  Anotace: This essay tries to pursue the question of whether one can ground a workable concept of action in the Aristotelian praxis-poiesis distinction. It is briefly indicated how this distinction was taken over by the philosophy of the 20th Century. The essay tries to prove the hypothesis that neither poiesis (transitive activity) n or praxis (immanent teleological activity) can be equated with action. A concept of action must, according to this hypothesis, consider both the aspect of change - the transitiveness of poiesis - and the way of being which one carries out through his activity - hence, the immanence of praxis.

Bělehrad : Belgrade Women's Studies and Gender Research Center, 2006, s. 85-98. ISBN 86-86513-00-X.  Anotace: If we understand Self as a complex construction, expressed and created through the process of self-representing and that the essential genre of self-representing is narrative, the identity will appear as a matter of relations made within our linguistic community, not of some “primordial subject” to which all individual identities should respond. Two extreme examples in Serbian medieval history and mythology illustrate the role of woman as a real traumatic one within the symbolic construction. The first one is well known myth The Building of Skadar and second is historical person - Damned Jerina. In both cases, the matter is building the town/fortress and the key roles were given to women. What I would like to problematize here, related to these examples is the manipulation with guilt in structuring the female identity and to try to show how this projection of guilt to the Other figured ex-Yugoslav conflict and political discourse.

KOLMAN, Vojtěch. Freges Pragmatismus im Streit um den Begriff der Wahrheit. In Philosophisches Jahrbuch der Görres Gesellschaft. 2005, roč. 112, č. 2, s. 292-310. ISSN 0031-8183. Anotace: Since the appearance of Dummett's monumental monograph in the early seventies of the last century there have been two interpretative traditions of reading Frege, one contradicting the other: the platonistic (or realistic) and the holistic (rationalistic) one. In this article, as a kind of intermediation, I firstly point out some pragmatic aspects of Frege's work. Secondly, and more ambitiously, I outline the controversy between the most influential theories of truth (the correspondence, coherence, redundancy and pragmatic theory) in the light of Frege's philosophy. Anyway it was the concept of truth, which Frege himself called the main objective of logic.

Anotace:The objective of my article is to show why there is no possibility of saving the doctrine of logicism. Since I am keenly aware that such general claims concerning the epistemic nature of mathematics do not usually solve the problem, but ordinarily cause a new one, I refer explicitly to Crispin Wright’s neologicism, George Boolos’ Fregean studies and Paul Lorenzen’s operativist account of mathematics. My main thesis then rests on the observation that logicism undervalued the practical, calculational character of arithmetic: I demonstrate in detail why inductive definition, i. e. exactly the Kantian operative element, is not meaningfully eliminable from the foundations of arithmetic, at least not by means of the Fregean logicism or its alleged (Wright’s and Hale’s) successor.

In his prosometric work Cosmographia (1145-1153), which is a re-mythologizing paraphrase of Plato´s Timaeus, Bernardus Silvestris distinguishes time in the sublunary realm from a double eternity: (1) simple eternity, lasting as present (simplex eternitas), and (2) its re flection in the regular movement of stars (eternitas of the stars and of the ethereal realm). Time is a product of this second, moving eternity and it is this time which rules the realm of generation and corruption. For Bernardus, time seems to be, above all, the limited period of individual life, the period of human existence being an opus temporis. Compared to it, the duration of the world, divided into periods by the movement of stars, does not seem to be a time, but rather a form of eternity, mediating between the transcendent eternity and the sublunary time of individuals.)
