    Is There Any Ethics in Business Ethics.Robert Trundle - 1989 - Journal of Business Ethics 8 (4):261 - 269.
    It is argued, against Richard T. De George, that while clarification of concepts, implications, and presuppositions in business ethics largely relies on a neutral territory of reason, determination of what moral intuitions are correct depends on non-neutral ethical theories. The latter posit ethics in business to varying degrees. Thus while the Kantian and utilitarian ethical theories are, for De George, proper (philosophical) approaches to business ethics, they are as reliant on affirming and encouraging moral sentiments outside parameters of pure reason (...)

  2. America's Religion Versus Religion in America: A Philosophic Profile.Robert Trundle - 2012 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 11 (33):3-20.
    Religion can be politicized to become a murderous ideology and ideology can be interpreted messianically to become a virtual religion. With the caveat that a religio-ideological capitalism pertains only to a minority of conservative Americans and that most Americans are not ideological, ideological capitalism has had an inordinate influence on America’s social-political praxis. This praxis has suffered from the ideology where “ideology” denotes inter alia: 1) a system of belief whose believers are intolerant of anything less than fervent adherence to (...)

  5. Quantum Fluctuation, Self-Organizing Biological Systems, and Human Freedom.Robert C. Trundle - 1994 - Idealistic Studies 24 (3):269-281.
    I now understand why the invitation to contribute an article on “chaos theory” invoked both my excitement and reticience. Let me first explain my excitement in terms of intriguing developments generated by the Cosmic Background Explorer satellite. Since COBE strengthened an “inflationary” Big Bang Theory wherein the structure of the universe was induced by random statistical fluctuations, there are implications inter alia of thermodynamics for chaotic fluctuations in both the structure and biological systems formed from it. I shall then explain (...)

    Art as Certifiably Good or Bad: A Defence by Modal Logic.Robert C. Trundle - 2011 - Cultura 8 (2):39-50.
    Connections of beauty to science, whereby scientific truth informs truth about art, is denied by a Humean-Kantian-positivist tradition. Its denial of even scientifictheories being known to be true proceeds pari passu with denying any known truth in the less rigorous sciences such as aesthetics that, for Aristotle, studiesbeauty’s cause. Related to causation is a modern problem of “knowing we know”: knowledge in science presupposes a causal principle whose truth is not known when expressed as a truth-functional conditional. But by conditionals (...)

    St. Thomas’ Modal Logic: Did Wittgenstein and Heidegger Embrace It?Robert C. Trundle Jr - 1996 - Idealistic Studies 26 (1):79-99.
    Wittgenstein and Heidegger were not merely pioneering leaders of different philosophical schools. They both disavowed a Judeo-Christian God and influenced trends opposed to traditional metaphysical arguments. Therefore, we may suppose that they had a major role in relegating medieval arguments for God to archaic syllogistic pedantries. But I will argue that a conditional premise in Thomas’ Second-Way argument not only finds expression in modal logic, since it specifies necessarily if there is no God, there is no world, but involves a (...)

    Women's Fashion: Function of Sex or Social Construction?Robert C. Trundle - 2009 - Cultura 6 (2):46-67.
    A perennial influence on the aesthetics of fashion, fostered by Plato and Aristotle, is challenged today by a prevalent social constructionism. The latter embraces an impracticable biodenial as well as an incoherent epistemic relativism, reminiscent of Greek Sophism, whereby truth-claims about good fashion may be both true and false either in the same culture at different times or at the same time in different cultures. But a normative aesthetics of Aristotle and Plato, that affirms an epistemic realism, roots women's fashion (...)

    Ancient Greek Philosophy its Development and Relevance to Our Time.Robert C. Trundle - 1994
    This is a study of how the thinkingof the Ancient Greek philosophers has a relevance to society today.

  11. Camus on a Disquietude That Cannot Be Distilled!Robert Trundle Jr - 2002 - Philosophia: International Journal of Philosophy (Philippine e-journal) 31 (2).
    Camus's apparent flirtation with Catholicism is rooted in his notion of absurdity. Paradoxically, an absurdity of existence both unites us to the world and alienates us from it. Whereas the alienation was avoided by a traditional philosophy that improperly imposed reason on reality, ultimate reality was construed by religion as a God who passes understanding. And though limitations on understanding are embodied by such things as a paradox of Christ who is both man and not man, Camus's profound insights on (...)

    From Physics to Politics the Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Philosophy.Peter A. Redpath & Robert C. Trundle - 1999 - Transaction.
    Mass ideology is unique to modern society and rooted in early modern philosophy. Traditionally, knowledge had been viewed as resting on metaphysics. Rejecting metaphysical truth evoked questions about the source of "truth." For nineteenth-century ideologists, "truth" comes either from dominating classes in a progressively determined history or from a post-Copernican freedom of the superior man to create it. In From Physics to Politics Robert C. Trundle, Jr. uncovers the relation of modern philosophy to political ideology. And in rooting truth in (...)

    Medieval Modal Logic & Science: Augustine on Necessary Truth & Thomas on its Impossibility Without a First Cause.Robert C. Trundle - 1999 - Lanham, MD, USA: University Press of America.
    Medieval Modal Logic & Science uses modal reasoning in a new way to fortify the relationships between science, ethics, and politics. Robert C. Trundle accomplishes this by analyzing the role of modal logic in the work of St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, then applying these themes to contemporary issues. He incorporates Augustine's ideas involving thought and consciousness, and Aquinas's reasoning to a First Cause. The author also deals with Augustine's ties to Aristotelian modalities of thought regarding science and logic, (...)

  17. Paradoxes of Human Nature.Robert Trundle - 2007 - Etica E Politica 9 (1):181-186.
    Our psychobiological nature is characterized paradoxically by our limitedly having and not having free will — our having this will and being subject to causes understood scientifically. Both characteristics are necessary for an intelligible ethics, politics, and political science. In particular, political science as a science must admit of our behavior being partially caused and of political rights and responsibilities in virtue of our limited free will. Admitting of either only this will or only the determinism is a central error (...)

  23. If Miracles Are Caused by Nature's God, Can There Be Scientific Truth?Robert C. Trundle & Glenn Barmble - 2005 - Aquinas 48 (3):443 - 455.
    We investigate whether there can be scientific truth if this truth depends ’inter alia’ on a true causal principle and if the principle strictly implies ’nature’s God’ ’qua’ a ’first cause’. If there is this ’cause’, then how does one know whether it or a natural cause was the cause of a phenomenon? Responses to this question involve examining critiques of the causal principle by Hume and Kant as well as by distinguishing logical from physical possibilities.

    Aristotle Versus Van Til And Lukasiewicz On Contradiction: Are Contradictions Irrational In Science And Theology?Robert C. Trundle - 2012 - Logos and Episteme 3 (2):323-344.
    The Polish logician Jan Lukasiewicz and the American theologian Cornelius Van Til are famous for challenging Aristotle’s Principle of Contradiction.Whereas apparent contradictions such as God and physical reality being both One and Not One are accepted in terms of an idealism held by Van Til, the Principle’s violations in theology and science reflect a realism held by Lukasiewicz. Lukasiewicz is favored for explaining why the Principle’s violation may be rational for a scientific and theological realism.
