  1. Critical Rationalism and Post-Truth.Thomas Hainscho - 2023 - Journal of Philosophical Investigations 17 (42):91–106.
    ‘Post-truth’ has become a buzzword for numerous current crises: the fragmentation of the media landscape, the ongoing debate about ‘fake news’, the loss of trust in science, etc. Although these crises take place in society, it is claimed that the roots of post-truth can be traced back to the history of philosophy. Occasionally, it is asserted that Karl Popper’s critical rationalism gave rise to post-truth: His rejection of verificationism has limited truth claims in the realm of science. Given the absence (...)

    Fritz Mauthners Heimatbegriff: Zwischen Deutschnationalismus, jüdischem Selbsthass und Sprachkritik.Thomas Hainscho - 2021 - Colloquium: New Philologies 6 (1): 54–69.
    This paper investigates the concept of Heimat in the work of philosopher, writer, and journalist Fritz Mauthner (1849–1923). It points out a conflict between Mauthner’s language philosophy and his political views. In his philosophical work, he argues that language is an insufficient tool for the acquisition of knowledge. When he writes about his heritage and uses notions such as Heimat, Volk, or Vaterland, Mauthner makes claims about the formation of social communities based on a shared language and neglects a critical (...)

    Open peer commentary on the article “Why Josef Mitterer’s Non-Dualism Is Inconsistent” by Stefan Weber.: Some of Weber’s objections rely on an abstract conception of time. This conception is incompatible with Mitterer’s claims.

  4. A Homeless Patriot: Fritz Mauthner’s Search for a Homeland in Language.Thomas Hainscho - 2021 - Azimuth 9 (2):31–45.
    This paper investigates the political dimension of Fritz Mauthner’s writings in respect to his language critique and his ambivalent relationship to Judaism. Its aim is to oppose the common understanding of Mauthner as a German-nationalist. For doing so, Mauthner’s relation to Judaism is contextualised within his philosophical views on patriotism, mother-tongue, and the formation of social communities. By suggesting an anti-nationalist interpretation of his philosophy, it is argued that participation in a certain linguistic practice can explain what it means to (...)

    Philosophy and the War.Fritz Mauthner & Thomas Hainscho - 2023 - Journal of Continental Philosophy 4 (1):61-70.
    Fritz Mauthner’s essay Die Philosophie und der Krieg, published in October 1914, is among the nationalist writings of Mauthner written during the First World War. The essay explores the question of returning to philosophy after the war. Asking this question, Mauthner examines the relationship between war and philosophy and argues that the two concepts do not share any substantial points of contact. During his discussion, an unspoken premise of the question about the return to philosophy is revealed: as the science (...)

    Calling the news fake: The underlying claims about truth in the post-truth era.Thomas Hainscho - 2023 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 49 (7).
    This article deals with the question about the conditions for someone to call something ‘fake news’. It examines cases in which something is called fake news and analyses these cases from an ordinary language point of view as speech acts. Doing so, the analysis explains fake news as the expression of a dissent. The analysis avoids problems of recent attempts to provide a definition of fake news and argues against the view that fake news belong to a so-called post-truth era. (...)

    /Non-Dualism/ continued.Thomas Hainscho - 2023 - Constructivist Foundations 18 (3):416-419.
    I present Weber’s German book Radikaler Lingualismus to those who are interested in non-dualism but cannot read German. In my review, I compare Weber’s book with Mitterer’s works, address non-dualism at key points, and elaborate on Weber’s deviations.

    Die Selbstdeutung des Menschen. Zu Arnold Gehlens Resonanzphänomen und Ernst Kapps Organprojektion.Thomas Hainscho - 2017 - In Andreas Oberprantacher & Anne Siegetsleitner (eds.), Mensch sein – Fundament, Imperativ oder Floskel Beiträge zum 10. Kongress der Österreichischen Gesellschaft für Philosophie. pp. 539-547.
    Ich möchte im Folgenden den Begriff des Resonanzphänomens bei Arnold Gehlen untersuchen. Dafür gehe ich im ersten Abschnitt auf die Rolle von Kultur und Technik in Gehlens philosophischer Anthropologie ein und zeige, wie er Faszination durch Technik als Resonanzphänomen beschreibt. Danach wird im zweiten Abschnitt auf Fragen hingewiesen, die durch den Begriff des Resonanzphänomens aufgeworfen werden, und im dritten Abschnitt vorgeschlagen, diese Fragen mithilfe der Technikphilosophie von Ernst Kapp zu beantworten.
