Trump’s White Nationalists, Again

 

Philosophy News image
On the face of it, condemning white supremacists and neo-Nazis is one of the politically easiest things to do. Trump, however, seems incapable of engaging in this simple task. Instead, he has continued to act in ways that lend support to the alt-right. After a delayed and reluctant condemnation of the alt-right, Trump returned to his lane by making two claims. The first is the claim that “there is blame on both sides.” The second is the claim that there are good people on both sides. On the face of it, both claims are false. That said, these claims will be given more consideration than they deserve. If one accepts a very broad concept of blame, then it would be possible to claim that there is blame on both sides. This could be done in the following way. The first step is asserting that a side is responsible if an event would not have taken place without its involvement. This is based, of course, on the notion that accountability is a matter of “but for.” In the case at hand, the. . .

Embodiment, Enaction, and Culture: Investigating the Constitution of the Shared World

 

Philosophy News image
2017.08.09 : View this Review Online | View Recent NDPR Reviews Christoph Durt, Thomas Fuchs, and Christian Tewes (eds.), Embodiment, Enaction, and Culture: Investigating the Constitution of the Shared World, MIT Press, 2016, 456pp., $55.00 (hbk), ISBN 9780262035552.   Reviewed by Bryce Huebner, Georgetown University This volume was written at the conclusion of a European research network project called Toward an Embodied Science of InterSubjectivity. Over the course of 20 chapters and an introduction, it develops resources for thinking about embodiment and culture. And since the authors have "collaborated for years" (10), their papers display a great deal of theoretical unity. But unity comes at a cost: nearby stones are left unturned, and competing views are often rejected too quickly. Nonetheless, the book provides a clear account of what enactivism amounts to, what it takes for granted, and how far it can be pushed -- and overall, that's a good thing.   The volume. . .

The Unity of Science

 

Philosophy News image
[Revised entry by Jordi Cat on August 16, 2017. Changes to: Main text, Bibliography] The topic of unity in the sciences can be explored through the following questions: Is there one privileged, most basic or fundamental concept or kind of thing, and if not, how are the different concepts or kinds of things in the universe related? Can the various natural sciences (e.g.,physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology) be unified into a single overarching theory, and can theories within a single science (e.g., general relativity and quantum theory in...

Latin American Philosophy: Metaphilosophical Foundations

 

Philosophy News image
[Revised entry by Susana Nuccetelli on August 17, 2017. Changes to: Main text, Bibliography, notes.html] A salient feature of Latin American philosophy is its early engagement in reflection about its nature and significance - indeed, the very possibility of its existence. The result of this reflection has been substantial debates on issues that are of interest not only to Latin American philosophy, but to metaphilosophy in general. For they similarly arise for other less familiar philosophical traditions. This essay looks closely at those debates about Latin American philosophy. It is focused on the analysis of its main problems and the positions...
