  • A Theory of Moral Education

    By Michael Hand

    Children must be taught morality. They must be taught to recognise the authority of moral standards and to understand what makes them authoritative. But there’s a problem: the content and justification of morality are matters of reasonable disagreement among reasonable people. This makes it hard to…

  • Immanent Materialisms

    Speculation and critique

    Edited by Charlie Blake, Patrice Haynes

    Must a philosophy of life be materialist, and if so, must it also be a philosophy of immanence?

  • Nature, Speculation and the Return to Schelling

    Edited by Daniel Whistler, Tyler Tritten

    Two decades ago, Schelling first resurfaced in Žižek’s Indivisible Remainder, and the same argumentative move of redeploying Schellingian themes for contemporary ends has continued to play a significant role in critical theory since (Markus Gabriel, Iain Hamilton Grant, Jean-Luc Nancy). All…

  • Sensibility in the Early Modern Era

    From living machines to affective morality

Rather, if we concentrate on the…
