A basic income for all: crazy or essential?

 

Philosophy News image
Shouldn’t society provide a safety net for all in modern society? The radical idea of ensuring a regular stream of cash payments to all members of society, irrespective of their willingness to work, has attracted increasing attention in recent years. Following the mobilization of a citizens’ initiative, the world’s first national referendum on basic income was held in Switzerland in 2016. While the outcome was a clear ‘no’ verdict, the debate contributed greatly to spread public awareness and discussion of the idea worldwide. Different proposals for unconditional income support have been advanced by politicians from all across the left-right spectrum. Benoît Hamon, the candidate of the socialist party in France’s 2017 presidential election, embraced basic income as one of his central proposals in the recent primaries. Finland’s centre-right government launched an ambitious two-year basic income experiment —the first of its kind in Europe— in January. There are currently plans for many. . .

Immunology in perspective

 

Philosophy News image
Among students of science, in contrast to those who do science, the dominant discussion revolves around the degree to which scientific interpretations are subject to extra-curricular influences, specifically, to what extent are facts independent of the larger political context in which science resides. (Political refers to the economic costs and benefits measured as improved health, productivity, military defense, etc.; promotion of ideological commitments; corporate advancement; social flourishing, and the like.) The question is not just applicable to understanding how science makes its truth claims, but represents a general quandary: Scientists, historians, lawyers–all citizens–constantly face the task of drawing the line around credible disputes over the standing of facts and their meaning, which ultimately determines their status as “true.” This matter is posed throughout our culture. Indeed, in whatever endeavor we engage, assumptions are made about the reality of our. . .

Graphs and paradoxes

 

Philosophy News image
A directed graph is a pair <N, E> where N is any collection or set of objects (the nodes of the graph) and E is a relation on N (the edges). Intuitively speaking, we can think of a directed graph in terms of a dot-and-arrow diagram, where the nodes are represented as dots, and the edges are represented as arrows. For example, in the following figure we have a graph that consists of three nodes–A, B, and C, and four edges: one from A to A, one from A to B, one from B to C, and one from C to B. Image courtesy of author. Note that with directed graphs we distinguish between those cases where a node has an arrow from itself to itself and those cases where it does not, and we also take into account the direction of the edge–that is, the edge from B to C is distinct from the edge from C to B (we do, however, represent cases where we have arrows going in both directions with a single line with two “arrowheads”). In the diagram above, the nodes might represent Alice, Betty,. . .

Rousseau's Ethics of Truth: A Sublime Science of Simple Souls

 

Philosophy News image
2017.02.13 : View this Review Online | View Recent NDPR Reviews Jason Neidleman, Rousseau's Ethics of Truth: A Sublime Science of Simple Souls, Routledge, 2017, 250pp., $140.00 (hbk), ISBN 9781138654785. Reviewed by Christopher Bertram, University of Bristol Philosophical engagement with the work of Rousseau has undergone a revival in the anglophone world over the past forty years. Philosophers including N. J. H. Dent, Frederick Neuhouser and Joshua Cohen have discovered more attractive and interesting readings of his moral psychology and political philosophy than were fashionable in an earlier generation that often understood Rousseau as a primitivist or as a proto-totalitarian. But even these new readings of Rousseau have struggled to establish coherence across the full range of his writings, often preferring to concentrate on the moral psychology alone and on a limited number of core texts, particularly the Discourse on Inequality, Emile and the Social Contract.
