    This paper presents a critical review of Scheler’s analysis of shame's structure, dynamic, and affectivity, and his explanation of phenomena of shame. This first part of the paper examines Scheler’s accounts of shame’s ...
  • Using models to correct data: paleodiversity and the fossil record 

    Bokulich, Alisa (Springer Verlag, 2018-05-17)
    Despite an enormous philosophical literature on models in science, surprisingly little has been written about data models and how they are constructed. In this paper, I examine the case of how paleodiversity data models ...
  • Moral critique and philosophical psychology 

    Katsafanas, Paul (The Pennsylvania State University Press, 2018)
    Given the richness of Nietzsche’s texts and the variety of his concerns, picking just two key topics is no easy task. I am going to focus on two issues that are both obvious and elusive: obvious, because they are some ...

    Dahlstrom, Daniel (Cambridge University Press, 2018)
  • Truth, knowledge, and “the pretensions of idealism”: a critical commentary on the First Part of Mendelssohn’s Morning Hours 

    Dahlstrom, Daniel (De Gruyter, 2018)

  • Naïve and sentimental character: Schiller’s poetic phenomenology 

    Dahlstrom, Daniel (SUNY Press, 2018)
    [Excerpt] "Poets are, by definition, “the preservers of nature,” but when they can no longer completely be so, they serve as its witnesses” and “avengers.” In the former case, they are natural; in the latter, they seek the ...
  • Heidegger's early phenomenology 

    Dahlstrom, Daniel (Oxford University Press, 2018)
    This paper attempts to shed some light on Heidegger’s early conception of phenomenology in light of its conscious departure from Husserl’s conception of phenomenology. The period in question extends from Heidegger’s first ...
  • Representing and explaining: the eikonic conception of explanation 

    Bokulich, Alisa (University of Chicago Press, 2018)
    The ontic conception of explanation, according to which explanations are "full-bodied things in the world," is fundamentally misguided. I argue instead for what I call the eikonic conception, according to which explanations ...
  • Fiction as a vehicle for truth: moving beyond the ontic conception 

    Bokulich, Alisa (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2016-07)
    Despite widespread evidence that fictional models play an explanatory role in science, resistance remains to the idea that fictions can explain. A central source of this resistance is a particular view about what explanations ...
