ISR researcher Boris Rähme on transcendental arguments and analytic philosophy of gender, recent publications


In three recently published papers, FBK-ISR researcher Boris Rähme analyses the inferential structure and the reach of transcendental arguments in moral theory:

  • “Ambition, Modesty, and Performative Inconsistency”, in Jens P. Brune, R. Stern, Micha H. Werner (eds.), Transcendental Arguments in Moral Theory, Berlin, New York: de Gruyter 2017, pp. 25-45, DOI.
  • “Performative Inkonsistenz für Fallibilisten“, in Deutsches Jahrbuch Philosophie 8, ed. by M. Quante, Hamburg: Meiner 2016, pp. 605-619.
  • “Transcendental Arguments, Epistemically Constrained Truth, and Moral Discourse”, in G. Gava, R. Stern (eds.), Pragmatism, Kant, and Transcendental Philosophy, London, New York: Routledge 2016, pp. 259-285, cited in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

While the series of papers on transcendental arguments regards the possibilities of a secular justification of moral principles, a survey article co-authored in Italian with Valentina Chizzola gives an overview of recent work in the analytic philosophy of gender, thus addressing a topic that cuts across all research activities of FBK-ISR:

  • “Genere” (with Valentina Chizzola), in APhEx - Portale italiano di filosofia analitica 15, 2017, pp. 1-38, open access.

Penultimate drafts of all four papers are available here and here.
