  • Una aproximación al sexismo y a las brechas de género en la cultura académica de las mujeres universitarias de la sede Rodrigo Facio

    Álvarez Espinoza, Nazira; Espeleta Sibaja, Annia; García Fallas, Jacqueline; Toruño Sequeira, Maritza (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    We share experiences, reflections and lessons learned about the experience of sexism and gender gaps that pre-exist in theacademic culture of the Rodrigo Facio campus. The foregoing is product of two research projects developed by the authors and with inputs from the Gender Gaps and Sexism in University Life Conference held in June 2022. Despite the generational gaps, women in academic life continue to experience implicit or explicit sexist behaviors, values and structures that encourageit, so it is necessary to transform the academic life conditions of the female population in the university.
  • Profanar los territorios

    Vidal , Raúl (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    The present rests on ruins, which the Angel of History looks at in the midst of the storm of progress. Does a psychoanalysispropose artifices (the force of an image, a play on words, the scales of the act) that contradict the real unbridled of the outside lockdown suffered by migrant bodies?
  • Los relatos de la pasión como memoria y narración ritual

    Zúñiga Valerio, Hanzel J. (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    This paper synthesizes literary and theological elements once contained in the canonic gospel’s passages of “the passion of Christ”. The main conclusions that contemporary historiography and exegesis have obtain are introduced through the usage of the narrative genre and the selective reconstruction of memory. These refer to the death of Jesus in order to understand the texts as primitive ritual narratives that respond to the degradation suffered by the ignominious and sudden death of their leader on the cross.
  • La teología después de Auschwitz: J.B. Metz

    Cascante, Luis Diego (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    The article offers a tight overview of Johann Baptist Metz’s work on political theology as orthopraxis.
  • Feminismos multiespecies: ecofusión entre cuerposterritorios. Una crítica a la colonización de la naturaleza desde una “poética erótica de la relación”

    Bidaseca, Karina (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    This text explores the working relationships of interspecies care with the plant world, in order to question the ecocide that affects both the bodies / territories and ancestral knowledge. I wish to show the links between Ana Mendieta´s land art with her body as first territory to speak of an “erotic poetics of the Relationship”, inspired by Audre Lorde and Édouard Glissant. By strengthening our capacities of perception, using our body as a locus of constant experimentation it implies displacing ourselves from the descolonial struggles of human and non-human agencies (photophilia, love for plants), to appeal to amultispecies justice (Haraway).
  • The Vampire of Capital and its Death Drive: Validity of Marx and Freud in the Face of the Current Structural Violence of Capitalism

    Pavón-Cuellar, David (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    The current structural violence of capitalism is reflexively addressed through notions provided by Marx and Freud. The Freudian notion of the death drive allows us to reinterpret the Marxian metaphor of the vampire of capital that absorbs the living to transmute it into more and more dead money. This reinterpretation reveals unsuspected aspects in violent manifestations of the capitalist system.
  • Presentación: Lógicas de las violencias contemporáneas. Miradas interdisciplinarias

    Vul Galperín, Mónica (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
  • Mexican Quasi-Messianism and “Philosophy of History” in a Non-Authoritarian Regime: the Case of President López Obrador

    Ortiz Delgado, Francisco Miguel (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    The political speeches of the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador (2018-2024) have been characterized by a constant reference to a teleological history. Using Karl Löwith’s reflections on speculative philosophy of history, I analyse the president’s liberal-progressive idea of history and I conclude that such idea could be interpreted as a secular quasi-messianism.
  • The Neotomist Aesthetic in the Order of Preachers

    Granados Valdéz, Juan (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    The aesthetics of the 20th centuryhave been many and among them there is a neotomist aesthetic. The purpose of this work is to trace the aesthetic ideas of some DominicanThomist philosophers: Ceferino González and Díaz Tuñón O.P. (1831-1894); Heinrich Seuse Denifle O.P. (1844-1905); Norberto del Prado O.P. (1852-1918); Pedro Mandonnet O.P.(1858-1936); Ambrosio Gardeil O.P. (1859-1931); Antonin-Dalmace Sertillanges O.P. (1863-1948); Gallus Manser O.P. (1866-1950); Édouard [Florentin-Louis] Hugon O.P. (1867-1929); Francisco Marín-Sola O.P. (1873-1932); Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange O.P. (1877-1964); Manuel Barbado O.P. (1884-1945); Santiago María Ramírez Ruíz de Dulanto O.P. (1891-1967); Abelardo Lobato O.P. (1925-2012); SixtoCastro (1970). All of them have been widely recognized. Not in all cases has it been possible to make discoveries about beauty and art.
  • Una revista abierta a los desafíos de la inclusión

    Álvarez Garro, Laura (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
  • Pierre Nicole: A Pessimist with a Project

    Pla Alfonso, Alejandro (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    Grace is effective, yes, but the necessary and powerful intervention of God should not wait. The Christian must “tempt God” in the ordinary. The mundane is thus rehabilitated in favor of divine intervention. Starting from the model of monastic life, Nicole will promote a moral reference of daily life.
  • Una conversación en común

    Rojas Chacón, Anamaría; Gutiérrez , Raquel; Álvarez Garro, Laura (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
  • Etty Hillesum o cuando Dios no funciona

    Mora Calvo, Hernán (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    Etty Hillesum developed throughout her life the task of self-knowledge and from there she discovered that life consisted of achieving a better dimension, always vitalized, be it of one’s own life and of the life of others. However, life is dry, dark and contradictory and sometimes offers enmities with itself. The question is, then, what does God do about it?
  • La validez histórica mundial de la ironía. Kierkegaard, Sócrates y Hegel

    Navarro Fuentes, Carlos Alberto (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    The objectives of this work are to reflectively and critically describe and compare the meaning of Socratic irony (including the relationship of the Greek with the sophists) and modern irony (particularly of the German romantics at the beginning of the 19th century, whom Kierkegaard criticizes). , including the importance of the term nihilism. It is reviewed and exemplified with extracts from the Kierkegaardian work “On the concept of irony”. The methodology will basically consist of differentiating between Kierkegaard's irony in an eminent sense and irony as infinite and absolute (pure) negativity. We reflect on what the figure and thought of Johan Ludvig Heiberg meant for Kierkegaard's thought and his definition of what an <<ironist>> should be for the Danish philosopher. Kierkegaard's critique of Hegel's perspectives on irony is analyzed, making a comparison of Kierkegaard's understanding of particularity and universality, and its influence on his critique of Hegel. Kierkegaard's critique of Hegel's view of Socrates as a negative figure is summarized.
  • ¿Una “biopolítica democrática”? Formas de resistencia al poder a través de su resignificación

    Smith Pacheco, Vera (Universidad de Costa Rica, 2023-05-15)
    In this article, I explore the concept of democratic biopolitics in order to evaluate its viability. At the same time, I propose the context of this concept as a theoretical tool to analyze social injustice. Considering this perspective, the idea of power as having a priori a negative sign or, in other words, the idea that power itself implies merely an aggressive practice and domination is questioned. In addition, I address concepts such as the relational component of power, solidarity as a resistance practice and the questioning of the subject as theoretical elements of power with the purpose of contributing to a critique of different and violent scenarios where power explodes and subjugates.
