    Philosophizing Together.Rashad Rehman - 2022 - Spontaneous Generations 10 (1):88-97.
    Philosophers have various responsibilities. Articulating these responsibilities, however, is contingent on what one means by “philosophy” and what philosophers have “expertise” in. Responsible philosophers must therefore interact with the following kinds of questions: What do philosophers have expertise in? What responsibilities do philosophers have as intellectual experts, and to whom are they responsible? What are philosophers supposed to know and be able to publicly convey? What is the role of a philosopher in contributing to local, institutional, and global responsibilities? This (...)

  3. Ethics, Homelessness and The Artes Liberales/Artes Serviles Distinction.Rashad Rehman - 2020 - In John Abbarno (ed.), The Ethics of Homelessness ed. John Abbarno. Leiden, NV: Brill, 2020. Leiden, Netherlands: pp. 429-447.
    It is a relatively uncontroversial proposition that without “ethics,” an “ethics of homelessness” is impossible. What is less uncontroversial, though, is that philosophy—or at least philosophical analysis—is a necessary condition of ethical discourse. The distrust—or skepticism regarding the utility of— philosophical analysis is predicated on rendering philosophy as useless. This, though, should create a sense of cognitive dissonance, since we universally acknowledge that ethics informs how we interact with ourselves and others, while we also accept, and rightly so, the uselessness (...)

  4. Josef Pieper’s Defense of the Geisteswissenchaften.Rashad Rehman - 2020 - In Amin Asfari (ed.), Civility, Nonviolent Resistance and The New Struggle for Social Justice. Leiden, Netherlands: pp. 203-233.
    This chapter asks the following question: What are the conditions, within and fostered by contemporary educational institutions, for social justice to be grounded philosophically and put into concrete action? In answer- ing this question, I argue that a defense of the liberal arts is a plausible candidate for grounding the possibility of “social justice,” understood as fulfilling an obligation to another in virtue of their intrinsically being owed that obligation. The liberal arts are not merely mechanical, special- ized disciplines; instead, (...)

  7. Sana Oculos Meos.Rashad Rehman - 2021 - Augustinianum 61 (1):137-152.
    Augustine’s commentary on Alypius’ curiositas at the gladiatorial show recounts one of the most well-known stories in Augustine’s Confessiones. Despite the various interpretations or explications of the story in Augustinian scholarship, this paper argues that the story centres around Alypius’ curiositas as a function of Alypius’ preceding, morally deficient character. The author provides a fourfold, cumulative and philological case for this thesis. He develops this case by means of four evidences. First, Augustine uses the phraseology of animus forti temperantia, the (...)

  8. Perfect Freedom in The Good Place and St. Thomas’ Commentary on the Gospel of John.Rashad Rehman - 2021 - de Philosophia 1 (I):1-15.
    Mike Shur’s Netflix-aired The Good Place has been a focus of philosophical attention by both popular-culture (written by pop-philosophers) and professional philosophers. This attention is merited. The Good Place is a philosophically rich TV show. The Good Place is based in three places: The Good Place, The Medium Place and The Bad Place. Every human being ends up in one of these places after they die based on their good points (points received for doing good actions e.g., chewing with your (...)

    Disintegrating Particles, Non-Local Causation and Category Mistakes: What Do Conservation Laws Have to Do with Dualism?Rashad Rehman - 2018 - Conatus 2 (2):63.
    The single most influential and widely accepted objection against any form of dualism, the belief that human beings are both body and soul, is the objection that dualism violates conservation laws in physics. The conservation laws objection against dualism posits that body and soul interaction is at best mysterious, and at worst impossible. While this objection has been both influential from the time of its initial formulation until present, this paper occupies itself with arguing that this objection is a fleeting (...)
