Anti-National Humanist

By: Ankur Mutreja

In this essay, the author is trying to answer the question: is there a political possibility of existence of a humanist as an anti-national humanist? He wonders if it is possible for humanists like doctors to not become the externalities of nationalism labeling the blood saffron, green, red, black and white (even pacifists die in wars between nations).

El Escuadrón Suicida de la Criminología : Innovación etnográfica e...

By: Dr. Lic. Antonio Silva Esquinas; Jorge Ramiro Pérez Suárez

This article offers an analysis of innovative new ethnographic methods which have come about in recent times during our research studies. We start by contextualizing the state of ethnographic research in Spain, with a focus on its usage by Spanish Criminologists before discussing “instant ethnography” and “auto-ethnography”. Lastly, we use field notes from our ethnographic studies on youth nightlife environments in Magaluf – a touristic zone famous for its party atmosph...

By: Lic. Dr. Jorge Ramiro Pérez Suárez; Antonio Silva Esquinas

In the present paper we make an approach to understanding how post-positivism, liquidity and capitalism have affected through its neoliberal current the schools of thought in Social Sciences and their research methods. This approach is based on three distinctive realities such as: the phenomena of political refugees, the homeless and cyberporn so that we can observe the current limitations in research matters in relation to certain phenomenologies and we will propose th...

Un Acercamiento a la Especialización de la Criminología : An aproa...

By: Lic. Cristian Díaz Sandoval

We are at a crucial time for criminology, where its famous stalemate may remain in the past to start a revolution not seen until now in all Latin America, where the old customs will be left behind to be replaced by new methods, techniques, knowledge that will bring with them the thesis of specific criminologies. This text presents a brief approach to the importance of these as fields of applied scientific research, from which the appropriate tools for the development of science will be obtained.

Conceivability, Plural Quantification, and Haecceitism

By: Hasen Khudairi

This essay aims to redress the contention that epistemic possibility cannot be a guide to the principles of modal metaphysics. I argue that the interaction between the multi-dimensional intensional framework and intensional plural quantification enables epistemic possibilities to target the haecceitistic properties of individuals. I outline the elements of plural logic, and I specify, then, a multi-dimensional intensional formula encoding the relation between the epistem...

Cognitivism about Epistemic Modality: Epistemic Modal Algebra, Hom...

By: Hasen Khudairi

This paper aims to vindicate the thesis that cognitive computational properties are abstract objects implemented in physical systems. I avail of the equivalence relations countenanced in Homotopy Type Theory, in order to specify an abstraction principle for intensional, computational properties. The homotopic abstraction principle for intensional mental functions provides an epistemic conduit into our knowledge of cognitive algorithms as abstract objects. I examine, then...

Moral Vagueness and Luminosity

By: Hasen Khudairi

This essay defends an epistemicist response to the phenomenon of vagueness concerning moral terms. I outline a traditional model of -- and then two novel approaches to -- epistemicism about moral predicates, and I demonstrate how the foregoing are able to provide robust explanations of the source of moral, as epistemic, indeterminacy. The first model of epistemic indeterminacy concerns the extensions of moral predicates, as witnessed by the non-transitivity of a value-th...

Logical and Epistemic Modality

By: Hasen Khudairi

This paper examines the interaction between the philosophy and psychology of concepts and the modal characterization of the deductive concept of logical validity. The concept of logical consequence on which I focus is model-theoretic, where the concept records the property of necessary truth-preservation from the premise of an argument to its conclusion, as well as the condition that, in the class of all possible worlds in which a premise is true, a consequent formula or...

Non-Transitive Self-Knowledge: Luminosity via Modal $\mu$-Automata

By: Hasen Khudairi

This essay provides a novel account of iterated epistemic states. The essay argues that states of epistemic determinacy might be secured by countenancing self-knowledge on the model of fixed points in monadic second-order modal logic, i.e. the modal $\mu$-calculus. Despite the epistemic indeterminacy witnessed by the invalidation of modal axiom 4 in the sorites paradox -- i.e. the KK principle: $\square$$\phi \rightarrow \square$$\square$$\phi$ -- an epistemic interp...

Entanglement, Modality, and Indeterminacy

By: Hasen Khudairi

This paper aims to contribute to the metaphysical foundations of the Everett or `many-worlds' interpretation of quantum mechanics (cf. Everett, 1957; Wallace, 2012). I focus on the nature of the indeterminacy countenanced by states of entanglement, and argue that an account which clarifies the nature of the possible worlds at issue might serve to elucidate both the notion of metaphysical indeterminacy as well as the status of probability in the interpretation. I endeavor...

Abstracta and Possibilia: Modal Foundations of Mathematical Platonism

By: Hasen Khudairi

This paper aims to provide modal foundations for mathematical platonism. I examine Hale and Wright's (2009) objections to the merits and need, in the defense of mathematical platonism and its epistemology, of the thesis of Necessitism. In response to Hale and Wright's objections to the role of epistemic and metaphysical modalities in providing justification for both the truth of abstraction principles and the success of mathematical predicate reference, I examine the Nec...

Multi-Dimensional Truthmaker Semantics

By: Hasen Khudairi

This paper endeavors to establish foundations for the interaction between hyperintensional semantics and multi-dimensional indexing. I examine the significance of the semantics, by developing three, novel interpretations of the framework. The first interpretation provides a characterization of the distinction between fundamental and derivative truths. The interaction between the hyperintensional truthmaker semantics and modal ontology is further examined. The second inte...
