  • Antinomias filosóficas en la pintura: Vermeer y Friedrich

    Noel Lapoujade, María (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2022-05-17)
    As stated by Leonardo's epigraph, the fundamental premise in this paper is that, just like painting is philosophy, philosophy is painting as well. Just like painting expresses different philosophical problems, philosophy can be concretely applied in painting. Drawing from this premise, the purpose of this paper is todemonstrate that the paintings by Jan Vermeer and Caspar Friedrich are a fertile field for the formulation of certain conceptual, abstract antinomies through pictoric images. On the other hand, literature has expressed–and exceeded– the magnificence of painting through memorable poems and poetic prose. In this regard, I refer particularly to Wolfgang Goethe, Rainer-María-Rilke, Marcel Proust and Giusseppe Ungaretti. Our approach is thus interdisciplinary. The integration of painting, music, literature and philosophy helps us tohighlight the concrete universality of the works of art, as parts in a living texture.

  • Naturaleza y Metabolismo en El Capital de Karl Marx

    Quesada Rodríguez, Francisco (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2022-05-16)
    Esta investigación discute el concepto de naturaleza y metabolismo en El Capital I de Karl Marx considerando como trasfondo las antiguas interpretaciones marxistas sobre la relación del ser humano con la naturaleza y las nuevas discusiones sobre el carácter ecológico de la filosofía de Marx. Durante la segunda mitad el siglo XX se consideró la relación del ser humano con la naturaleza en el marco de la alienación del trabajo en la medida en que la naturaleza aparece como el objeto de una lucha constante de apropiación privada para la producción, desvinculando al “hombre” de la naturaleza. Sin embargo, en relación con la actual discusión medioambiental se ha descubierto en el siglo XXI una nueva dimensión orgánica que había quedado olvidada en la filosofía marxista: el metabolismo. Finalmente, a partir del concepto de naturaleza y metabolismo se discute de manera crítica el aporte de Marx a la cuestión ecológica contra el capitalismo considerando la llamada “fractura metabólica”
  • ¿Una guerra civil entre los incrédulos? Las críticas de Voltaire al Système de la nature de Holbach

    Ratto, Adrián (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2020-08-06)
    The aim of this paper is to examine Voltaire’s criticisms of Holbach after the publication of Système de la nature, with the purpose of illustrating that his position is not as simple as it may at first appear. This, in turn, highlights the important transformations of Voltaire’s ontology in his writings of the 60’s and 70’s and, in a more general way, sheds some light on the discussions on atheism and materialism during the siècle des Lumières.
  • La lógica y las lógicas: sobre quejas inatendidas de Leibniz y Quine

    Camacho, Luis (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-11-17)
    Leibniz´s complaint in a short essay written at an uncertain date shows insatisfaction with the status of Logic in his time. If we have in mind the purpose of Logic as it is stated in Plato´s Phaedon , and the present-day separation between formal and informal Logic, the complaint is still valid in some respects in spite of the time elapsed. Quine´s complaint is even more obvious and valid: the proliferation of equivalent symbols in Logic is unnecesary and turns redundant many efforts in the discipline. Our research leads us to interesting conclusions on the relation between natural and formal languages.
  • Intellectual humility as an ethical, epistemological and cognitive problem

    Navarro Fuentes, Carlos Alberto (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2021-11-16)
    I argue about the importance of intellectual humility in the academic field; on the relevant relationship that it has with the ethics of virtue, epistemology and cognition, whose theorization and practice can contribute to solving complex problems of reality related to knowledge and its transmission.
