Statut, Esthétique Et Genre : Trajet De La Danse De Ballet Au Travers Du Xviiie Siècle Français, Hélène Marquié 2017 Université de Paris 8, Laboratoire d’études de genre et de sexualité (LEGS UMR 8238)

Statut, Esthétique Et Genre : Trajet De La Danse De Ballet Au Travers Du Xviiie Siècle Français, Hélène Marquié

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

Un tableau de l'évolution de la danse de spectacle, d'une performance noble et masculine et une danse de représentation dont la théorie se partage entre la rhétorique et l'art pictural (les attributs identifiants), puis la mimesis ou danse action, à une performance autonome, ayant sa propre esthétique, au moment où cette discipline naissante minore la danse (Baumgarten, Kant). Par la suite, à partir du dix-neuvième siècle, le ballet devient un art réservé aux danseuses, une profession dévaluée aux yeux du grand public en une "charmante" parade de grâce féminine (suspecte de prostitution), ou une performance de féminité ...

Metaphors Of Objectivity, Adam Westra 2017 University of British Columbia

Metaphors Of Objectivity, Adam Westra

Episteme

This paper analyzes how Bacon and Popper both use metaphors in support of their respective theories of the objectivity of progressive science. The author tracks each thinker’s prevalent use and dependence on metaphors; including Bacon’s appeal to religion and the emerging science of optics, and Popper’s biological analogy and dismissal of Kuhn’s relativistic view of science and knowledge. The author argues that the objectivist theorists are plagued by the fact that metaphors are not objective. It seems we must accept only one of the two: their objectivity claims or their methodological approach of using metaphors. The ...


Hume: Causality And Subjectivity, David Mossburger 2017 Grand Valley State University

Hume: Causality And Subjectivity, David Mossburger

Episteme

In the Enquiry, Hume’s discussion of causality figures heavily in his critique of the rationalists. But what exactly do his two “definitions” of causality mean? The author addresses competing questions that arise from Hume’s ambiguity, but one thing is paramount here: both definitions imply a subject’s experience of causality. Following this, the author ponders the uniqueness of cumulative experience and personal belief, later connecting these to Simon Blackburn’s account of the organization of ideas that lead us to think in causal terms. In conclusion, since Hume’s empiricism is metaphysically subjective, Blackburn’s anti-realist interpretation is ...


The Extended Room Or What Otto Didn't Know, Ryan Victor 2017 University of Pennsylvania

The Extended Room Or What Otto Didn't Know, Ryan Victor

Episteme

The author provides succinct explications of the relevant literature pertaining to the debate resulting from Turing’s thesis on artificial intelligence. It is argued that Searle’s Chinese room example is refuted by neither the so-called systems reply nor the Extended Mind thesis. Such attempts to defend strong AI err because they rely on altered definitions of concepts that we should not accept. The author, in addition to pointing out the importance of factoring in consciousness, provides several illustrative examples, parallels, and original arguments (including a modified concept of “strong coupling”) in his defense of Searle’s position. The paper ...


On The Validity Of Spinoza's Proof For Monism: A Question Of Equivocation, Jennifer Lynn Daigle 2017 Providence College

On The Validity Of Spinoza's Proof For Monism: A Question Of Equivocation, Jennifer Lynn Daigle

Episteme

Spinoza’s metaphysics fails to employ a consistent use of terms, such as “finite” and “infinite”. After clarifying Spinoza’s philosophical project and analyzing his proof for ontological monism, the author provides a discussion of Spinoza’s employ of concepts “finite” and “infinite,” given his distinction between attribute and absolute. It is found that Spinoza improperly jumps to the existence of God, but that he might be more successful in proving the existence of absolute Being.


An Analysis Of Freedom And Rational Egoism In Notes From Underground, Michael Hannon 2017 York University

An Analysis Of Freedom And Rational Egoism In Notes From Underground, Michael Hannon

Episteme

In trying to decide between Nikolay Chernyshevsky’s rational egoism and Fyodor Dostoevsky’s expressivism, the author confronts a huge overarching question: What does it mean to be human? The discussion looks at Dostoevsky’s Underground Man, who believes that a rational utopia leaves humans without their most prized advantage: free will. The author determines that Dostoevsky’s notion of freedom is designed to negate Chernyshevsky’s, but to what extent must the Underground Man exist in a society organized so rationally? If the Underground Man need not be a product of society, then what can be the value of ...


A Logical Absurdity: Jeremy Bentham And The Auto-Icon, Anna Brenton Brawley 2017 Denison University

A Logical Absurdity: Jeremy Bentham And The Auto-Icon, Anna Brenton Brawley

Episteme

Ever wonder what might be the most absurd idea to come out of the Age of Reason? This paper in the history of philosophy supplies one possibility: Jeremy Bentham’s Auto-Icon. This study places Bentham’s decision to preserve his physical body in the context of his full body of philosophical and social work, itself contextualized within the revolutionary ideas and advances of the Enlightenment. The author touches on Bentham’s philosophy, his fondness for invention and science, as well as his vehement religious and political critiques. It is argued that the Auto-Icon embodies Bentham’s desire to promote universal ...


Hilary Putnam's Semantic Scientism: A Critique, Gregory R. Warner 2017 Wilfrid Laurier University

Hilary Putnam's Semantic Scientism: A Critique, Gregory R. Warner

Episteme

This author is puzzled by and disagrees with Putnam’s theory of meaning. In particular, the author argues that there can be a gap between scientific meaning and acceptable normal use, thereby showing the tension between Putnam’s scientism and his attention to linguistic communities. Part of the problem is Putnam’s imprecision, given that he neither argues for why we should privilege scientific classification, nor helps us draw the boundary surrounding our linguistic community. The author cites commentator Gregory McCulloch a great deal to help summarize and grasp Putnam’s project, thereby necessitating a discussion of McCulloch’s own ...


Bratman On Intending, Joseph Alberts 2017 Rice University

Bratman On Intending, Joseph Alberts

Episteme

This article is a response to Michael E. Bratman’s novel thought experiments in “Toxin, Temptation, and the Stability of Intention” and so concerns instrumental rational planning agency. The basic question is: When should an agent alter her intentions? Bratman criticizes two planning strategies, Sophistication and Resolution, which rely on too narrow planning logics: the linking principle and/or the standard view. As an alternative, Bratman introduces the No-Regret principle to meet the demands of rational planning in his more complicated examples. The author notes a problem, though: Bratman is operating under a misleading understanding of intention that violates the ...


The Ethical Ramifications Of Recent Advances In Ovarian Transplantation, Govind Persad 2017 Stanford University

The Ethical Ramifications Of Recent Advances In Ovarian Transplantation, Govind Persad

Episteme

The author examines the ethical questions and issues that come with the new advances in autologous transplantation and heterologous transplantation, specifically regarding ovaries. He argues in strong favor of each’s continued advancement and thinks that jewish concerns align more in-line with non-IVF advancements and the procedure of allografting. Throughout, his paper includes comparisons with embryo freezing, oocyte freezing, sperm banking, organ transplantation, and gamete donation. The author is frequently in dialogue with John A. Robertson’s views on many of the matters, and comments on Alison McCarty’s analysis of the double effect when considering how to classify ovarian ...


Acquitting Nietzsche: An Alternative View Of His Infamous Misogyny, Susan Parillo 2017 Skidmore College

Acquitting Nietzsche: An Alternative View Of His Infamous Misogyny, Susan Parillo

Episteme

Nietzsche has an appreciation for women’s naturalness and instinctual femininity; he desires to help emancipate them. A closer look at Beyond Good and Evil exonerates Nietzsche of the charge that finds him to be a supreme misogynist. The author begins her paper by rectifying the misunderstandings concerning his style, which makes wide use of confusion-causing linguistic tools. She then supports Maudemarie Clark’s attention to the distinction between “women as such” and “women.” The author argues that Nietzsche attacks the socio-psychological construction of womanness and the typically unhelpful role women play in perpetuating it. In the late 19th century ...


The One, The Many, And Plato: A Critical Analysis Of Plato's Theory Of Forms, Emann Allebban 2017 University of Michigan, Dearborn

The One, The Many, And Plato: A Critical Analysis Of Plato's Theory Of Forms, Emann Allebban

Episteme

The author succinctly determines that Plato does not escape the One/Many problem nor adequately establishes the relationship between the form and the particular. This paper divides its time between a short overview of the theory of Forms and the argument that there are problems with the theory identified in Plato’s own Parmenides. Two objections plague Plato’s metaphysics: the logical absurdity of the concept of participation and the question: How can materialness be derived from immaterialness?
