The Matrixed Ontology
Rajiv Kaushik - Author

Argues that symbolism is an important and unique element of Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology.

Merleau-Ponty says in his Institution and Passivity lectures that he wants to “consider criticism itself as a symbolic form” instead of doing “a philosophy of symbolic form.” This invites the possibility of an unconventional thought: If critical philosophy is a symbolic form, it cannot disclose its own limits and is, ...(Read More)

Plato's Laughter (December 2017)
Socrates as Satyr and Comical Hero
Sonja Madeleine Tanner - Author

Counters the long-standing, solemn interpretation of Plato’s dialogues with one centered on the philosophical and pedagogical significance of Socrates as a comic figure.

Plato was described as a boor and it was said that he never laughed out loud. Yet his dialogues abound with puns, jokes, and humor. Sonja Madeleine Tanner argues that in Plato’s dialogues Socrates plays a comical hero who draws heavi...(Read More)
