A discussion forum (and e-mail list) for the philosophers on the Humanities Commons platform.
‘Dharma’ (Rightousness)1 sometimes takes the shape of ‘Adharma’ (unrighteousness ).”2 The Mahābhārata gives a subtle message through the stories. Sage Viśhwamitra justifies stealing of a piece of dog’s flesh to save his life during famine. (Śāntiparvan).

The foundational gesture of New Materialism and Speculative Realism dismisses vast swaths of past philosophy and theory in order to signify their own avant-garde status. The violence of this gesture, which tries to corral difference within past texts in order to feign its own purity, can be considered as a theoretical quarantine. Examples of…[Read more]
The idea of a critical theory has colonized the social consciousness of academia, and become an integral part of the pursuit of higher knowledge. Competing ideas have thereby become standard bearers in that critical theory acts as a measure of true understanding . The only problem, however, is that many of the distinct theories similarly answering…[Read more]
This presentation presents a case study in philosophy and science policy surrounding Plan S and argues that we need new ways of evaluating such approaches to research.
This essay argues for the consideration of energy and an energy-based humanities model in the study of water in the Middle Ages. It also proposes that ‘energy’, when discussed in the context of the Middle Ages, is in fact a study of ‘energies’, derived from technology, material culture, and intellectual culture in equal measure. It propose…[Read more]
This essay considers Emmanuel Levinas’s philosophy of hospitality in relation to the “isolated and heroic being that the state produces by its virile virtues,” through an analysis of female Chechen suicide terrorists in contemporary Russia and the figure of Grendel in the Old English poem “Beowulf,” in order to raise some questions about the relat…[Read more]
This essay offers a consideration of Levinas’s philosophy of hospitality in relation to the terroristic figure of Grendel in the Old English poem “Beowulf,” in order to raise some questions about the vexed connections between ethics, violence and sovereignty, as well as between ethics and politics, both in the early Middle Ages and in our own t…[Read more]

These interdisciplinary events were dedicated to dialogue and cro…[Read more]
This essay argues that literary narratives can serve as ideal sites through which to explore the emergence of time’s dissonant conjunctions and surprising forks, arising as they do from minds that are both transhistorical and rooted in particular times and places, and because literary texts are also objects that, as Jonathan Gil Harris has a…[Read more]

Mad Max: Fury Road has been critiqued for its feminist, masculine, biblical, and environmental themes, but these critiques fail to engage with the connection between humans, machines, and the Earth in Fury Road. Nuclear technology may have produced the apocalyptic wasteland in which the film is set, but machines and industrial technology remain…[Read more]
¿Es posible construir otras imágenes del pensamiento en América Latina? Esta invitación nos llevó a proponer una excavación hacia el pasado y, almismo tiempo, una apertura hacia el porvenir. Antes que una “ﬁlosofía de laliberación”, invitamos a una liberación de la ﬁlosofía; antes que orígenes ocánones, artesanías que nunca tocan fondo o sujeta…[Read more]
Evaluation can be seen as an opportunity for transvaluation, or what Nietzsche called the revaluation of values. However, evaluation is often treated instead as the enforcement of standards – standardization rather than transformation. When evaluation as transvaluation and evaluation as standardization are both used to evaluate the same s…[Read more]
Se analizan los textos de Rafael Gutiérrez-Girardot sobre F. Nietzsche en torno a latragedia y el pesimismo. Esta aproximación se elabora a partir de tres temas: estilo,nihilismo y estética. Se argumenta que la interpretación de Gutiérrez-Girardot sobreNietzsche impide que este sea visto solo como un crítico literario. Asimismo, estetrabajo brind…[Read more]
In a recent essay in Rethinking Marxism, as part of a special issue on the legacy of Louis Althusser’s thinking,
Tyson E. Lewis takes up Althusser’s thinking on schooling, trade unionism, and seminars to delimit the concepts of
interpellation, counterinterpellation, and disinterpellation respectively. While Lewis’s work is a crucial first step…[Read more]
En el marco de las controversias indianas del siglo XVI, la obra de José de Acosta (1540-1600) refleja una nueva actitud intelectual que, más que plantearse el problema de la legitimidad del dominio español en América o los modos moralmente aceptables de conseguirlo, se enfrenta a la necesidad de asumir los hechos consumados y orientar el fun…[Read more]

The main focus falls on some representative discussions of the relationship between science and literature in mid-20th-century…[Read more]
