    Tragic Rationality in Nietzsche’s Misreading of Plato in The Birth of Tragedy and Beyond.Marina Marren - 2021 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 25 (2):425-445.
    Shortly before the first publication of The Birth of Tragedy, Friedrich Nietzsche identified his philosophy as an “inverted Platonism.” Although, as Martin Heidegger warns, “we may not overlook the fact that the ‘inverted Platonism’ of his early period is enormously different from the position finally attained,” nonetheless, Nietzsche’s suspicion about otherworldly truths and optimistic faith in reason runs as a strong current throughout his works. I argue that Nietzsche’s view of Plato as the initiator of the “true world”—the world that (...)

    Masks and Monsters: On the Transformative Power of Art.Marina Marren - 2018 - Pli 29:102-112.
    Drawing on texts in psychology, philosophy, and literature the paper argues that art avails us of a distance from ourselves. Art has a potential to change our perspective on monstrosity and to make us question our moral categories and presuppositions. The study focuses on a single painting by Paul Gavarni, Two Pierrots Looking into a Box (1852), which I have discovered holds two images in one representation. I turn to Gavarni's work in order to prompt a literal gestalt shift in (...)

    Temporality in Psychosis: Loss of Lived Time in an Alien World.Marina Marren - 2015 - The Humanistic Psychologist 43 (2):148-159.
    The question that drives this paper is: How does time function in psychosis? Given the altered or inhibited relation to speech in psychosis, I think that it is worth working out a notion of temporal or, to borrow Bessel van der Kolk’s term, “rhythmical. .. .interactions” (Listening to Trauma, 2014) with the afflicted persons. Using Freud’s analysis of non-linear psychic time, I construct a theoretical model of temporal modifications in psychosis. I then use this model, along with Lacan’s writings on (...)

    The Ancient Knowledge of Sais or See Yourselves in the Xenoi: Plato’s Message to the Greeks.Marina Marren - 2019 - AKROPOLIS: Journal of Hellenic Studies 3:129-149.
    It is easier to criticize others and their foreign way of life, than to turn the mirror of critical reflection upon one’s own customs and laws. I argue that Plato follows this basic premise in the Timaeus when he constructs a story about Atlantis, which Solon, the Athenian, learns during his travels to Egypt. The reason why Plato appeals to the distinction that his Greek audience makes between themselves and the ξένοι is pedagogical. On the example of the conflict between (...)

    “Life Death” in Plato and Derrida: A Review of Michael Naas’s Plato and the Invention of Life: Plato and the Invention of Life, by Michael Naas, New York, Fordham University Press, 2018, 288 Pp., $32.00 (Pbk), ISBN: 978-0823279685. [REVIEW]Marina Marren - 2020 - Comparative and Continental Philosophy 12 (1):66-75.
    ABSTRACTMichael Naas’s Plato and the Invention of Life, which I review in this essay, formulates the question that is at the core of Plato’s thought. This question is: What is life? Naas’s inquiry into life indicates a field for prolific research in ancient and continental philosophy, as it calls on us to rethink the difference, the priority, and the relationship between beings and Being. Our understanding of this coupling, which first set into motion the “gigantomachia” of Western philosophy, depends on (...)

    Analysis of Evil in Schelling’s Freiheitsschrift Through Heidegger’s Account of Dissemblance and Αλήθεια.Marina Marren - 2021 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 82 (2):97-115.
    ABSTRACT In this paper, I offer an analysis of evil in Friedrich W. J. Schelling’s Philosophische Untersuchungen über das Wesen der menschlichen Freiheit. Schelling develops an account of the sui-genesis of God out of the two principles. These principles are 1) the dark ground that belongs to God and 2) the self-revelation of God, who actualizes the dark ground, which grounds God antecedently. These two principles also contain in themselves the possibility and the intelligibility of the human world. In order (...)

    Taking Jean-Yves Lacoste’s account of liturgy as a point of departure, this essay examines Lacoste’s view of care. Lacoste thinks that care is bracketed or suspended in liturgy. To make this point,...
