Dealing with difficult problems
Miscellanea: Duševne boli i skrivanje iza vlastitog mozga; LGBTIQ i liberalizam; povratak duše
Novi KT dajdžest s crnjak fronta. Teme kojima se bavimo su LGBTIQ i moderne političke ideje, kako su transdžender žene otkrile da su duševnije od lezbijki, kako je Noah Kraljević obesmislila referendum o braku iz 2013. i ostale crne točke na tamnoj podlozi 2023. Ovaj put, za lijene čitatelje, pored teksta, postavljamo i audio varijantu.
Basic Notions of Metaphysics: Analogia Entis
In this episode of our regular podcast Basic Notions of Metaphysics we provide an account on principle of analogy - a veritable sacred bond of the universe, according to Medieval scientia transcendens. We follow the genesis of this genuinely Christian transformation of the principle already partly known in the ancient world, its relevance in the context of the problem of mediation between equivocal and univocal predication of being, its roots in the doctrine of transcendentals and, ultimately, its nature as the form of the revelation of the presence of God in His creatures.
KT Answers: What is Ontology?
In this episode of our regular Q&A podcast we answer the seemingly simple question, what is ontology? We delineate three thinkers and three notions of the primary philosophical science, out of which only one qualifies as ontology. Those thinkers are Christian Wolff, Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas, whereas Wolff is the one who, in 18th Century, introduced ontology as a discipline in the "system of philosophical sciences". We proceed to demonstrate that ontology, as modern invention, is a far cry from what Aristotle and Aquinas considered inquiry into "being qua being" to be. Off course, there are number of random digressions into all kinds of related subjects, from traditional notion of genera/species relation, nature of ens universalis, Kant's blending of metaphysics with Wolffian system and more.
LGBTIQ and the Logic of the Cuckoo's Egg
We, philosophers, suffer because most people tend to despise our vocation, whereas some - admittedly, a minority - usurp it and tend to render it actually despicable soon enough. This makes 'being philosopher' quite an unenviable path through life. However, some things, dear reader, cannot really be comprehended without due brush with philosophy. One of those is the thing behind the LGBTIQ acronym.
LGBTIQ i logika kukavičjeg jajeta
Mi filozofi trpimo zbog toga što nam profesionalnu kvalifikaciju ljudi ili preziru ili uzurpiraju, pa je onda objektivno i naprave dostojnom prezira. Međutim, neke stvari bez filozofije, dragi čitatelju, nećete moći shvatiti. Jedna od njih je stvar što leži iza LGBTIQ akronima.
Miscellanea: Intolerance of Eternity
Immortality is not such a tall order as it may seem at the first glance. The situation in which man can claim the right to become a woman and at the same time cannot affirm his right to exist for eternity is in fact quite the recent occurrence, as we shall see in the new KT Miscellanea.
