  2. Une Défense de l'Hédonisme Axiologique.Antonin Broi
    RésuméL'hédonisme axiologique a une longue histoire en philosophie. Pourtant, il garde une mauvaise réputation qui lui vaut d’être parfois écarté sans ménagement de la discussion philosophique. Cet article se propose de défendre l'hédonisme axiologique en exposant les principaux arguments en sa faveur et en répondant aux principales critiques et confusions dont il fait l'objet. Une attention particulière sera portée aux arguments établissant la spécificité du plaisir et du déplaisir par rapport à toutes les autres choses — amitié, savoir, justice, etc. (...)

  3. Davidson on Pure Intending: A Non-Reductionist Judgement-Dependent Account.Ali Hossein Khani
    I will argue that Davidson's account of pure intending can be construed as a first-person-based judgement-dependent account of intention. For Davidson, pure intending to do φ is to make an all-out judgement that φing is desirable. On this anti-reductionist account, intention is treated as an irreducible state of the subject. I will draw a comparison between this account and Wright's and I will show that Davidson's account can be viewed as a non-reductionist judgement-dependent account along the lines suggested by Wright. (...)

    God, Tragic Dilemmas, and the Problem of Gratuitous Evil.Arash Naraghi
    Many philosophers have argued that the existence of gratuitous evil is the most serious objection against the existence of an all-perfect God. I argue that the idea of a moral dilemma may either provide a moral justification for God to permit the existence of gratuitous evil, or offer a theodicy of divine tragedy to explain why evils in the world are not necessarily gratuitous, or if they are, why they cannot provide a piece of decisive evidence to reject the existence (...)

  5. On Being a Fan and on Fanhood and Its Implications for Defeating the Moral Sceptic.Anita M. Superson
    I employ the notion of fanhood to object to David Gauthier's Dependency Thesis, according to which, if a disposition is rationally required to adopt, so too are the acts expressing it. I first establish that fanhood is a commitment relevantly similar to a moral commitment. I then argue that, because genuine fanhood characteristically issues in inherently irrational behaviours in the form of ‘luck charms,’ or, superstitious practices fans believe will help their team win, it poses a decisive objection to the (...)

  6. Analogical Reasoning as an Inference Scheme.Bernard Walliser, Denis Zwirn & Hervé Zwirn
    Despite its importance in various fields, analogical reasoning has not yet received a unified formal representation. Our contribution proposes a general scheme of inference that is compatible with different types of logic. Firstly, analogical assessment precisely defines the similarity of two objects according to their properties, in a relative rather than absolute way. Secondly, analogical inference transfers a new property from one object to a similar one, thanks to an over-hypothesis linking two sets of properties. The belief strength in the (...)

    Epistemic Permissiveness and the Problem of Philosophical Disagreement.Mark Walker
    Epistemic uniqueness is the view that there is at most one rational doxastic response to a given batch of evidence E, while epistemic permissiveness is the denial of epistemic uniqueness. As several authors have noted, one of the attractions of epistemic permissiveness is that it allows us to believe that more than one doxastic response may be rationally faultless, and so permits us to respect the epistemic credentials of all parties to a dispute. I argue that permissiveness is unable to (...)

  8. Le Raisonnement Par Analogie Considéré Comme Un Schéma D'Inférence.Bernard Walliser, Denis Zwirn & Hervé Zwirn
    RésuméMalgré son importance dans divers domaines, le raisonnement par analogie n'a pas encore reçu de représentation formelle unifiée. Notre contribution suggère un schéma d'inférence général compatible avec différentes logiques. Premièrement, une assertion analogique définit la similarité entre deux objets en fonction de leurs propriétés, de façon seulement relative. Deuxièmement, une inférence analogique transfère une propriété nouvelle d'un objet à un objet similaire, grâce à une méta-hypothèse d'arrière-plan qui relie deux ensembles de propriétés. Le degré de croyance dans la conclusion est (...)

  9. Les Termes Transplantés : Une Approche Réflexive de la Philosophie En Chinois Moderne.Xiyin Zhou
    RésuméAprès la dispute soutenue à partir des années 1990 sur la question de savoir s'il y a une philosophie chinoise, plusieurs intellectuels chinois, y compris et surtout des philosophes, ont commencé, depuis une dizaine d'années, à se réunir autour d'une problématique plus concrète : « une philosophie en langue chinoise est-elle possible? » ou « comment raisonner en chinois moderne? » Parmi de nombreux sujets, celui des « termes transplantés » initié par Chen Jiaying a attiré l'attention générale. Cet article (...)

  1. Service, Reciprocity, and Remedy: From Confucian Meritocracy to Confucian Democracy.Sungmoon Kim
    One of the most notable features in recent Confucian political theory is the advocacy of political meritocracy. Though Confucian meritocrats’ controversial institutional design has been subject to critical scrutiny, less attention has been paid to their underlying normative claims. This paper aims to investigate the two justificatory conditions of Confucian political meritocracy—the service condition and the reciprocity condition—in light of classical Confucianism and with special attention to moral disagreement. Finding the normative argument for Confucian political meritocracy both incomplete and implausible, (...)

  1. Applying Aristotelian and Confucian Virtue Ethics to Humane Work in the Business Context.Daryl Koehn
    What is humane work? What does such work look like in a business context? This paper articulates two ways of thinking about humane work using an Aristotelian and a Confucian virtue ethics approach. This approach reveals the need to think about work’s connection not merely with autonomy but with self-refinement and self-perfection, with craft, and with the production of genuinely good goods; possible dangers of focusing too much on pay issues in connection with humane work; the relation between humane work (...)

  1. Referentiality and Configurationality in the Idiom and the Phrasal Verb.Cem Bozşahin
    Two positions of Bolinger, about synonymy and meaningfulness of words, point to significance of controlling the referentiality of word forms, from representing them in grammar to their projection onto surface structure, i.e. configurationality. In particular, it becomes critical to control the range of surface substitution for surface syntactic categories of words to maintain referential properties of idiosyncrasy. Categorial grammars as reference systems suggest ways to keep the two aspects in grammar. The first dividend of adopting a categorial perspective is systematically (...)

  1. Against Visitor Bans: Freedom of Association, COVID-19 and the Hospital Ward.Emily McTernan
    To ban or significantly restrict visitors for patients in hospital could seem to be simply a sensible and easy precaution to take during a pandemic: a policy that is unpopular, perhaps, and even unfortunate, but not something that wrongs anyone. However, I argue that in fact such restrictions on visitors infringe upon a fundamental right, to freedom of association. While there may still be permissible restrictions on visitors, making the case for these becomes highly demanding. One common way to understand (...)

  1. Global Distribution of COVID-19 Vaccine: Mine First.Joaquín Hortal-Carmona & Gonzalo Díaz-Cobacho
    The COVID-19 pandemic dealt a severe blow to society as a whole and required countries to confront a situation that exceeded the limits of their borders. In this paper, we analyze how these countries as well as supranational organizations responded to this unprepared global emergency. We also explore what alternative models have been proposed in the wake of this crisis and propose some changes—other ways of acting—so that in future pandemics or global emergencies, we can deal with the situation more (...)

  1. Visual Kei: Visuality, Narratives and Textuality in a Musical Sub-Culture.Roberto Fracchia
    This article seeks to show how narrative, textuality, and visuality are essential elements of a music genre, going to reinforce its style as much as its symbolism and perception. The visual kei genre, a popular music style in Japan, is used in the article. Although it is often considered a style of hard rock or heavy metal, the article will emphasize how the use of narratives, visuality and textuality make this genre a true sub-culture. Through hermeneutic analysis and taking phenomena (...)

  2. From the History of Collecting Tuvan Folk Songs: Yrlar and Kozhamyks.Kira Kyrgys
    The ancient history and culture of the inhabited tribes of Tuva attracted the attention of travelers, linguists, ethnographers, and musicians, especially in recent decades. The primary recordings of yrlar and kozhamyk in the writing sources of scientists contained samples of ancient musical poetry, including one-thousand-year history images, plots, motifs, and archaic vocabulary. Owing to ethnocultural values and beliefs of Tuvan people in Southern-Central Siberia it preserved features of relict cultures in music traditions. Based on field works conducted in the late (...)

  2. Critical Reflections on Pollitt and Bouckaert’s Construct of the Neo-Weberian State (NWS) in Their Standard Work on Public Management Reform.Hubert Treiber
    Pollitt and Bouckaert and their neo-Weberian state have been chosen as the subject for this essay because the book has become a standard work in the public management movement. It is frequently cited and has been re-published in multiple editions. The authors also refer explicitly to Max Weber.This contribution seeks to draw attention to three important aspects, which inevitably overlap with one another:1. There is no Weber in the neo-Weberian State. Pollitt and Bouckaert fail to grasp that Weber’s understanding of (...)

    This article aims to present the analysis of systematic approaches to the treatment of PTSD and war-related mental health issues adopted in Armenia and to illuminate possible differences and similarities between the latter and the best practices implemented in the USA. The analysis of the aforementioned mental health systems has been carried out based on three main axes: general treatment management, diagnosis and treatment planning, treatment and subsequent follow-up. As a result, we have concluded that despite the absence of a (...)
