  • Suggestions on How to Combine the Platonic Forms to Overcome the Interpretative Difficulties of the Parmenides Dialogue(*)

    Matía Cubillo, Gerardo Óscar (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    This paper provides an original approach to research on the logical processes that determine how certain forms participate in others. By introducing the concept of relational participation, the problems of self-referentiality of the Platonic forms can be dealt with more effectively. Applying this to the forms of likeness and unlikeness in Parmenides 132d-133a reveals a possible way to resolve different versions of the Third Man Argument. The method of generating numbers from oddness and evenness may also be of interest; relational participation in these forms clarifies the interpretation of Parmenides 143e-144a.
  • Ma(Rx)riateguismos, una expresión del marxismo plural o de la opción por un uso descolonial de Marx

    Gandarilla Salgado, José Guadalupe (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    This paper approaches the notion of an exteriority in relation to capitalism, and the expressions of a dignity in the autochtonous, in the work of José Carlos Mariátegui. We relate both of these aspects with the emancipatory discourse of the great Cuban patriot José Martí.
  • A Biologia do Fascismo por José Carlos Mariátegui

    Bastos da Silva, Renata; Marinho, Ricardo José de Azevedo (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    The analyses of the founder of Amauta magazine, the Peruvian José Carlos Mariátegui, were accurate as to the emergence of fascism in Italy and beyond. After the Great War, Mariátegui was in Italy in the early 1920s, in an undercover exile imposed by the government of A. B. Leguía.
  • Ética fenomenológica, axiológica y hermenéutica

    Quesada Rodríguez, Francisco (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    Este artículo explica los orígenes de la ética fenomenológica y sus derivaciones en dos perspectivas complementarias: la ética axiológica como desarrollo de una fenomenología material de los valores y la ética hermenéutica como interpretación fenomenológica de la vida humana en la doble dimensión ontológica de alteridad e ipseidad. El artículo sigue el desarrollo de la tradición fenomenológica desde sus orígenes primitivos hasta su derivación herética.
  • Pensar la crisis/pensar la nación. Acercamiento a las problemáticas políticas de Mariátegui

    Berríos Cavieres, Claudio (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    This work addresses the problems of nation, modernity and tradition in the thought of José Carlos Mariátegui. The period of political and cultural crisis in those years allowed him to configure new proposals around the approach to Peruvian history and its close relationship with a comprehensive and comprehensive national project.
  • La paz como contralectura: presupuesto de disgregación social

    Yanten Cabrera, Diego Fernando; Sánchez García, Arnulfo (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    The constructive tendency of peace towards the non-violent interrelational conformation of the individual is, certainly, a tax-institutionalized need, but this, self-styled, peace contains a deflation of subjective content, that is, it suppresses individual consideration and builds a harmonic stage of the social, cracking the constitutive power of the individual, replacing it with coercive-standardized schemes that lead to the violent conformation of a nondemocratic state of the socially given. Doesn’t the negative-tax naturalness of peace represent a disintegration of its own content? Is not peace a denial of its own duty-to-be, sustained by the highly positive positivity that human longing based on tradition, resolutely requests, a nonstructure of what it seeks to exalt?
  • La vocación hermenéutico-política de Mariátegui

    Montoya Huamaní, Segundo (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    The article seeks to introduce the problem of philosophical hermeneutics in Mariátegui’s discussions of Marxism, starting from the identification of four notions present in his work: 1) interpretation, 2) transformation, 3) method, 4) tradition. Also, we explore the senses in the use of the word “interpretation” and deduce the ontological and epistemological presuppositions of its hermeneutical-political vocation. Likewise, we address “Marx’s eleventh thesis on Feuerbach” in relation to the role played by hermeneia and praxis from the theoretical-political experience of a Latin American-Marxism de-centered in Europe. Finally, we analyze the «temporal distance» of the 7 Essays.
  • Pluralidad de conocimientos y diálogo epistemológico intercultural para el fortalecimiento de los saberes ancestrales. Primera parte: África, Latinoamérica, India, China y Japón

    Hernández Cassiani, Rubén Darío (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    The article analyzes the historical evolution of the knowledge construction process taking into account the contributions of the different cultural matrices that converge on the soil of humanity. This first part includes contributions from Africa, Latin America, India, China and Japan. The need to articulate through an inter-epistemological dialogue with the common purpose of putting them at the service of the collective well-being of the peoples and jointly facing the existing challenges in the course of humanity as a result of the impacts generated by scientific concepts that put at risk is stressed to the planet, nature and life itself, which implies safeguarding ancestral knowledge and its knowledge systems rooted in conceptions in harmony with nature and society.
  • El marxismo de José Carlos Mariátegui ante los dilemas de la educación y de la universidad en América Latina

    García, Gonzalo Fabián (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    One of the essential problems in Latin American thought has been the fact that efforts to grasp the own social reality are mediated by categories generated in othercontexts. This has promoted the well-known discussion about the authenticity of the intellectual tradition. In this sense, the theoretical work of Mariátegui represents a historical landmark in terms the possibilities to develop a Latin American Marxism. The central argument of his revitalization, as a classic, has been based on distinguishing his gesture of recreation of Marx’s theory in accordance with the surrounding reality and the problems of his time. The aim of this paper is to place Mariátegui’s work in a wider space of interpretation which includes his reformulation of the historical problems that Latin American thought has faced. We focus on the analysis of education and the university to propose a hermeneutic revelation exercise with the purpose of connecting the contributions of Mariátegui with the dilemmas of our historical present.
  • A Revolução Russa como escola política na teoria socialista e prática revolucionária de J. C. Mariátegui

    Aguiar, Danilla; Galastri, Leandro (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-03-18)
    The text presents the interlocution of Mariátegui’s Marxism with the revolutionary transformations developed in Bolshevik Russia, the influence of intellectual experience in his European stay and the ways in which he proposes the organization of Peruvian workers with a view to resolving the agrarian and peasant issue in his country. In our hypothesis, the dialectical analysis of the national with the international plan and the highlight given to local selforganization experiences were fundamental to the development of their practice Leninist and revolutionary.

  • Ética del escritor para un mundo de la postverdad

    Gil Claros, Mario Germán (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2020-11-16)
    El presente artículo centra su reflexión en torno a la ética del escritor para nuestro mundo contemporáneo, hoy cruzado por la post verdad en la escritura masiva, dirigida a lo que hoy todavía se llama opinión pública. Para ello, Kierkegaard y otros pensadores nos han de ayudar a entender lo que sería una ética del escritor para nuestro presente.
  • La universidad pública bajo ataque neoliberal

    Corrales Arias, Adriano (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2020-11-16)
    The following article seeks to encourage the discussion about threats against the public university as well as its necessary defense. A historical account is made of the origins of the western university and the future of the Costa Rican public university. The attacks and threats coming from the neoliberal counter-reform since the eighties of the last century stand out. These attacks and threats are reinforced by the presence of sectors within the universities that support and underpin the “reforms” proposed by the counter-reform. These attitudes and actions, plus the attacks, overlap with partial struggles in defense, certainly, of important human and civil rights, but forgetting or underestimating the strategic objectives of the political struggle in favor of the great majorities. Finally, a proposal is made towards “pluriversity” and for the creation of a single and integrated Costa Rican university system.
  • La universidad-empresa en América Central: el caso de la UCR

    Caamaño Morúa, Carmen (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2020-11-16)
    Este artículo se basa en el análisis de material cualitativo de entrevistas, observación participante, documentos y páginas web oficiales de universidades de América Central, redes sociales y medios periodísticos que dan cuenta de transformaciones ocurridas en el modelo de universidad pública en la región a partir de los años ochenta. En particular, se estudia el caso de la Universidad de Costa Rica y se le compara con universidades de Nicaragua, Honduras y Panamá. Se identifica a actores que han promovido el cambio hacia un modelo de universidad corporativa, no solo mediante políticas educativas, sino también mediante procesos de gubernamentalidad vinculados a la internacionalización neoliberal. Estos cambios impiden que la universidad se enfrente, desde una perspectiva de los cuidados que proteja a estudiantes y personal, a los ataques que sufre por parte de sectores político-empresariales o a las demandas que impone la crisis producida por la pandemia del Covid-19.
  • De la perspectiva pre-crítica a la filosofía crítica en el pensamiento holístico de Kant. 1770-2020

    Lapoujade, María Noel (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2020-11-16)
    El núcleo de este texto es una lectura minuciosa, que no exhaustiva, de la Dissertatio. Sobre la forma y los principios del mundo sensible y del inteligible,hilo conductor de mi paper. A partir de allí, el artículo despliega nociones que se volverán claves en la futura filosofía crítica. El método: consiste en tender puentes entre la Dissertatio y la obra crítica. De esta manera presento a Kant por él mismo. Conclusión: en general planteo mi propuesta acerca del pensamiento holístico de Kant como un tejido integral total. En particular, aplico esta tesis al caso específico de la Geografía física y de la Antropología del punto de vista pragmático, en su relación con temas relevantes de la Dissertatio, profundizados en las tres Críticas entre otras obras de nuestro filósofo.
