    What Distinguishes Human Understanding?Bernardo Canteñs - 2003 - Review of Metaphysics 57 (2):399-401.
    The central question of this book is “whether there is a qualitative difference in kind separating human understanding from the ‘understanding’ or intelligence of other animal species, or merely a quantitative difference of complexity and degree?” Deely attempts to answer this question by presenting an exposition “in the semiotics of the cognitive activity of organisms”. This book, therefore, is an analysis of semiotics in the cognitive activities of sensation, perception, and understanding. Three characteristics best describe Deely’s analysis: historically piercing, philosophically (...)

  4. A Solution to the Problem of Personal Identity in the Metaphysics of Thomas Aquinas.Bernardo J. Cantens - 2001 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 75:121-134.
    This paper presents a solution to the problem of personal identity over time in Thomas’s metaphysics. I argue that Professor Gracia’s solution to the problem of personal identity, existence, and Professor Stump’s solution, form or the human soul, are not only compatible but also necessarily interdependent on one another. This argument rests on (1) the special nature of the human soul, and (2) the metaphysical claim that for Thomas the human soul and existence are inseparable. First, I refine the problem (...)

    Why Forgive? A Christian Response.Bernardo Cantens - 2008 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 82:217-228.
    This paper constructs a theory of Christian forgiveness and argues that contemporary philosophical analyses of forgiveness have failed to capture its essential character. First, I provide a summary of the general view of forgiveness developed by contemporary philosophers. Second, I highlight the central differences between these general contemporary views and a genuine Christian conception of forgiveness. Finally, I argue that two reasons for these irreconcilable differences are the following: first, contemporary philosophical analyses have evered the virtue of forgivingness from central (...)

    Suárez on Beings of Reason: What Kind of Beings (Entia) Are Beings of Reason, and What Kind of Being (Esse) Do They Have?Bernardo J. Canteñs - 2003 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 77 (2):171-187.
    Beings of reason or non-existent objects have always been a source of mind-boggling paradoxes that have vexed philosophers and thinkers in the past and present. Consider Bertrand Russell’s paradox: “if A and B are not different, then the difference between A and B does not subsist. But how can a non-entity be the subject of a proposition?” Or Meinong’s paradox: “There are objects of which it is true that there are no such objects.” At the root of these troubling conundrums (...)

    Cognitive Faculties and Evolutionary Naturalism.Bernardo Cantens - 2006 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 80:201-208.
    In Warrant and Proper Function Plantinga argues that his natural view of warrant is best understood within a supernatural ontology. A central reason why anaturalistic ontology cannot accommodate his version of natural epistemology is that it cannot explain the reliability of cognitive functions. He presents argumentsfor the following two conclusions: (1) that naturalism is probably false; and (2) that naturalism is irrational. He considers the latter to be his main argument. Theobjective of this paper is to refute Plantinga’s arguments for (...)

    Peirce and the Spontaneous Conjectures of Instinctive Reason: A Neglected Argument for the Reality of God.Bernardo J. Canteñs - 2002 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 76:89-101.
    In this paper, I will analyze Charles S. Peirce’s “A Neglected Argument for the Reality of God.” I want to argue for two conclusions: 1) that Peirce’s conception of spontaneous conjectures of instinctive reason allows for a rationally justified belief in the reality of God; and 2) that this belief is not the result of a sound argument or even a complete argument and thus is not a secure belief. This paper is divided into three parts. First, I will explain (...)
