    The Concept of a Point of View.Tommi Lehtonen - 2011 - SATS 12 (2):237 - 252.
    The aim of this article is to provide an epistemological account of the concept of a point of view. The focus of the article is componential and therefore different variables in the concept of a point of view will be discussed. The article concludes that the concept of a point of view refers to mental viewing or rational consideration, which has many constituents, some of which relate to the observing subject, some to the tools of observing, and some to the (...)

    Sufficiency and Sustainability: Conceptual Analysis and Ethical Considerations for Sustainable Organisation.Tommi Lehtonen & Pasi Heikkurinen - forthcoming - Environmental Values.
    This article analyses the concept of sufficiency in relation to sustainability and discusses ethical implications for sustainable organisation in time and place. We identify three foundational conceptualisations of sufficiency related to sustainability: a limits model that starts with objective boundaries imposed by the biosphere and basic human needs; a preference model that treats sufficiency as a subjective inclination for moderation defined situationally; and a balancing model that seeks to integrate the objective limits and subjective preferences by focussing on action embedded (...)

    Niṣkāmakarma and the Prisoner’s Dilemma.Tommi Lehtonen - 2020 - Sophia 60 (2):457-471.
    The Bhagavadgītā, part of the sixth book of the Hindu epic The Mahābhārata, offers a practical approach to mokṣa, or liberation, and freedom from saṃsāra, or the cycle of death and rebirth. According to the approach, known as karmayoga, salvation results from attention to duty and the recognition of past acts that inform the present and will direct the future. In the Bhagavadgītā, Kṛṣṇa advocates selfless action as the ideal path to realizing the truth about oneself as well as the (...)

    Implicaturism: A Pragmatic View on Existential Claims in Religion.Tommi Lehtonen - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 45:177-183.
    In this paper, I will introduce and argue for a new view on religious faith and language, a view that focuses on the use and context of use of religious expressions. I call this view implicaturism. As one may guess, ‘implicaturism’ comes from ‘implicature’, a term coined by Paul Grice. For Grice, implicature is a technical term for certain kinds of inferences that are drawn from statements without those inferences being logical implications or entailments. In the view of religious faith (...)

    The Notion of Merit in Indian Religions.Tommi Lehtonen - 2000 - Asian Philosophy 10 (3):189 – 204.
    There are uses of the term merit in Indian religions which also appear in secular contexts, but in addition there are other uses that are not encountered outside religion. Transfer of merit is a specific doctrine in whose connection the term merit is used with an intention which is not the same as that found in nonreligious contexts. Two main types of transfer of merit can be distinguished. First, the transfer of merit has been associated with certain ritual practices in (...)
