Caring for the 'soul' with Hannah Arendt and Michel Foucault

Kontinentale Philosophie Konzept, University of Groningen | 2007

My aim in this paper is to clarify the views of Hannah Arendt and Michel Foucault on the relationship between ethics and politics, by way of comparison. My strategy is to introduce as a mediator phenomenologist Jan Patočka. This allows me to frame the philosopher’s role with regard to ethics and politics in a way that renders Hannah Arendt and Michel Foucault comparable, but without having to discuss the philosophy of one in terms of the other.

Two explications of ‘social unity’ in political philosophy: John Rawls and Will Kymlicka on ‘the ties that bind’

Analytische Philosophie Konzept, University of Groningen | 2007

In this paper I employ the analytical method of concept explication to clarify how the notion social unity (and the related notion of ‘social union’) is used by two contemporary analytical philosophers, John Rawls and Will Kymlicka.

Not choosing between universalism and contextualism: Paul Ricoeur on tragedy and practical wisdom

Kontinentale Philosophie Konzept, University of Groningen | 2006

In this paper I draw on Paul Ricoeur's ethics to argue that although contextualistm and universalism cannot be reconciled conceptually, we do not have to choose between them in practice.

Toleration and recognition: Anna Galeotti on the symbolic inclusion of minority groups

Kontinentale Philosophie Konzept, University of Groningen | 2006

This paper attempts to shed some light on the relation between toleration and recognition through a critical discussion of Anna Galeotti’s suggestion to place recognition within the framework of toleration. I will aruge that that Galeotti’s fails to account for the normative value of some kinds of social conflict, especially those that are religiously or morally motivated. As a result, her conception of toleration as recognition is too one-dimensional

Combining rational choice theory and hermeneutics

Analytische Philosophie Konzept, University of Manchester | 2006

This paper attempts to shed some light on the relation between toleration and recognition through a critical discussion of Anna Galeotti’s suggestion to place recognition within the framework of toleration. I will aruge that that Galeotti’s fails to account for the normative value of some kinds of social conflict, especially those that are religiously or morally motivated. As a result, her conception of toleration as recognition is too one-dimensional

Liberal-nationalism and religion: conflicting commitments?

Analytische Philosophie Konzept, University of Manchester | 2006

This paper aims to defend Will Kymlicka’s liberal-nationalism against the critique that it would violate the liberal value of religious freedom. I will contend that Will Kymlicka does not prioritize national identity over other shared identities and extends the liberal ideal of religious freedom rather than violating it.
