  1. Hugh MiddletonFlourishing and Posttraumatic Growth. An Empirical Take on Ancient Wisdoms.
    Considerations of well-being or flourishing include Maslow’s and Rogers’ concepts of self-actualisation and actualising tendency. Recent empirical findings suggest that only a modest proportion of the population might be considered to be flourishing. Separate findings focused upon the nature and determinants of post-traumatic growth identify it as comparable to flourishing, and facilitated by supported accommodation to the trauma. This can be understood as reflecting self-actualisation. Empirical findings such as these provide ontological stability to a set of phenomena that share (...)

    SangWon LeeThe Dynamic Association of Being and Non-Being: Heidegger’s Thoughts on Plato’s Sophist Beyond Platonism.
    This article examines Heidegger’s interpretation of Plato’s Sophist, focusing on his attempts to grasp Plato’s original thinking of being and non-being. Some contemporary thinkers and commentators argue that Heidegger’s view of Plato is simply based on his criticism against the traditional metaphysics of Platonism and its language. But a close reading of his lecture on the Sophist reveals that his view of Plato is grounded in Plato’s questioning struggle with the ambiguous nature of human speech or language. For Heidegger, Plato’s (...)

  2. Hi guys, love the blog. I'm working a hot steaming teaching load at a small community college and I'm trying to publish my way up the profession. I'm working on articles on the metaphysics of children, holes and parts. I love working on these topics as they allow me to extend my mind (shoutout to Chalmers and the other guy) while fulfilling my job requirements. My students love listening to me talk about all of it, and sometimes they say things that really make me go 'Hmm'! I love philosophy but I hope you all keep trying to improve the problems in the profession. We've got a lot of work to do but there's some good stuff going on across the spectrum, and we need to extend a 'Hey!' to other disciplines and let them know we're there. I know my five year old is learning philosophy, because we talk after I come home and have finished grading papers. I love the profession and would like to see a lot more of it.

  3. THanks for this. I wonder, whern we review papers, how long should we spend typing up our ideas about the arguments, helping th eauthors do their work better? Personally I think they should learn philosophy from their teachers, let me teach MY students, and they will slowly get better or simply move on. Any takers?

  4. Getting up to do philosophy this morning I noticed a number of difficult issues for the profession. I am going to take some time to work through these before getting back to my work!

  5. Learning about philosophy was the best time of my life. Locke on personal identity? Get out of here! I loved thinking about all these different problems and now I have a 4-2 teaching load at a small liberal arts college. I'm hoping to publish my way into the Leiter top ten.
