The Humanistic, Fideistic Philosophy Of Philip Melanchthon (1497-1560), Charles William Peterson Oct 2012

The Humanistic, Fideistic Philosophy Of Philip Melanchthon (1497-1560), Charles William Peterson

Dissertations (2009 -)

This dissertation examines the way Philip Melanchthon, author of the Augsburg Confession and Martin Luther's closest co-worker, sought to establish the relationship between faith and reason in the cradle of the Lutheran tradition, Wittenberg University. While Melanchthon is widely recognized to have played a crucial role in the Reformation of the Church in the sixteenth century as well as in the Renaissance in Northern Europe, he has in general received relatively little scholarly attention, few have attempted to explore his philosophy in depth, and those who have examined his philosophical work have come to contradictory or less than helpful ...

Naturalized Panpsychism: An Alternative To Fundamentalist Physicalism And Supernaturalism, Earl R. Cookson Jul 2012

Naturalized Panpsychism: An Alternative To Fundamentalist Physicalism And Supernaturalism, Earl R. Cookson

Dissertations (2009 -)

A central problem in the mind-body debate is the generation problem: how consciousness occurs in a universe understood as primarily non-conscious. This problem is particularly bothersome for physicalists. I argue that the generation problem stems from a non-critical presupposition about the nature of reality, namely, that the mental is an exception in the universe, a non-fundamental property. I call this presupposition mental specialism. Despite the fact that mental specialism dogmatically ingrained in the debate, there has been little reason offered either to accept or reject it. And doing so would dissolve the generation problem. But rejecting mental specialism, though it ...

The Concept Of Personhood In The Phenomenology Of Edmund Husserl, Colin J. Hahn Apr 2012

The Concept Of Personhood In The Phenomenology Of Edmund Husserl, Colin J. Hahn

Dissertations (2009 -)

This dissertation attempts to articulate the concept of personhood in Husserl. In his research manuscripts, Husserl recognized the need for a concrete description of subjectivity that still remained within the transcendental register. The concept of personhood, although never fully worked out, is intended to provide this description by demonstrating how the embodied, enworlded, intersubjective, and axiological dimensions of experience are integrated.

After briefly outlining the characteristics of a transcendental phenomenological account of personhood, this dissertation outlines the essential structures of personhood. The person, for Husserl, includes the passive dimension with the instinctive and affective dimensions of subjectivity, which become sedimented ...

Von Der Mannigfaltigen Bedeutung Der Reduktion Nach Husserl: Reflexionen Zur Grundbedeutung Des Zentralen Begriffs Der Transzendentalen Phänomenologie, Sebastian Luft Jan 2012

Von Der Mannigfaltigen Bedeutung Der Reduktion Nach Husserl: Reflexionen Zur Grundbedeutung Des Zentralen Begriffs Der Transzendentalen Phänomenologie, Sebastian Luft

Philosophy Faculty Research and Publications

This paper takes a renewed look at Husserl's method of the phenomenological reduction. It interprets "the reduction" as shorthand for the meaning of Husserl's entire phenomenology in its mature stage. In the same way, the method of reduction might have different manners of execution but they are nevertheless guided by a common intent. The text takes its starting point by considering the different metaphors Husserl uses - the "flatland creatures" and the reduction as akin to a religious conversion - and spells out their implications, which lead me to consider their metaphilosophical significance. In this way, this article attempts a ...


Transformative Education In A Broken World: Feminist And Jesuit Pedagogy On The Importance Of Context, Theresa Weynand Tobin Jan 2012

Transformative Education In A Broken World: Feminist And Jesuit Pedagogy On The Importance Of Context, Theresa Weynand Tobin

Philosophy Faculty Research and Publications

This chapter relates the concept of positionality from feminist theory and pedagogy to the Ignatian paradigm to show how its focus on the individual, at the expense of the structural, fails to acknowledge the unequal power relationships that disadvantage students from minority groups. Focusing on the positionality of gay and lesbian students in the author's classroom at a Jesuit college, it explores how becoming attentive to our own positions with respect to our students allows us better to examine how relationships of domination and subordination between members of oppressed and privileged groups in larger social and ecclesial contexts are ...
