    In 2015 Andrew T. J. Kaethler and Sotiris Mitralexis organized a conference in Delphi Greece that engaged with the theological and philosophical questions surrounding the relationship between history and ontology. The theme of this volume of Forum Philosophicum––“Faith in the Web of Evanescent Meaning”––grew out of the conference; four of the five papers were presented in Delphi. All of the papers seek to make sense of truth and meaning in relation to the human world of flux and change. Heidegger, Hegel, Derrida, Jüngel, and Przywara are the most recognizable figures explicated herein with perspectives dramatically ranging from a welcoming embrace of Transhumanism to a critical explication of the entelechy of postmodern thought in light of the Cross.

    This special volume of Forum Philosophicum, entitled “Sharing in the Logos: Philosophical Readings of Maximus the Confessor,” makes available five papers selected from those presented at the conference “Maximus the Confessor as a European Philosopher,” held at the Freie Universität, Berlin, from the 26th to the 28th of September, 2014. We are happy to open up our journal to the contributions of a number of scholars who all share a specific methodological stance when it comes to reading Patristic texts. Rather than discussing the philosophy of Maximus the Confessor, they seek out the philosophical involvements and implications of Maximus’ theology. They respect the distinction between philosophical and theological modes of thinking, while recognizing how those modes of thinking influence and complete each other.

  • The Spring 2015 issue of Forum Philosophicum makes available four analytical papers discussing a range of problems connected with the philosophy of religion and philosophy practiced in a religious context. Paul Kabay’s “Nonetheism: A Nonetheistic Account of a Non-existent God” introduces a philosophical stance that views God as non-existent, yet impossible to reject. The property of existence is, in this approach, one that cannot be ascribed to the object of cognition we call God. Paul Kucharski, in his paper “Speaking Rationally about the Good: Karol Wojtyła on Being and the Normative Order,” shows, through an analysis of Karol Wojtyła’s ethical stance, how any serious ethical approach requires thatweacceptthe existence of anobjective and normative measure of goodness. In the paper “Epistemic Deism Revisited,” Leland Harper offers somecriticism of Bradley Monton’s, Nancey Murphy’s, and Thomas Tracy’s views concerning God’s epistemically inaccessible activity on asubatomic, non-deterministic level. Francis Jonbäck presents a modification of the stance called “Friendly Atheism,” to which he gives the name “Very Friendly Atheism Indeed.” These papers are accompanied by a survey of recent research into the phenomenon of synesthesia by Józef Bremer(“Mental Disorder or Creative Gift? The Cognitive Scientific Approach to Synesthesia”), who points to several philosophical questions raised, and potentially answered, by such research. The issue also brings totheattentionofreaderstwo book reviews.

    In the Autumn 2014 issue of Forum Philosophicum, we bring our readers five studies on a range of issues related to Christian philosophy and the philosophy of religion. Mark S. McLeod-Harrison sketches a proposal for a Christian philosophy of gender. Travis Dumsday proposes a new argument against causal chains regressing to infinity, which, he hopes, can address the objections historically raised against these kinds of arguments, used as foundation for various theistic stances. Mikael Leidenhag points to problems in panentheistic ontology, due to which it cannot be offered as a naturalistic account of Divine action. Jonathan S. Marko, in his analysis of propositions that are “above reason” in Robert Boyle, challenges Jan W. Wojcik’s claim that Boyle thought accepting religious doctrines required us to violate the law of non-contradiction. Sotiris Mitralexis puts forward an account of Maximus the Confessor’s view of intelligible creation that attempts to resolve contradictions in the latter’s statements about the corruptibility and perishability of the intelligible world.

    The Spring 2014 issue of Forum Philosophicum offers six papers in which various issues pertaining to the philosophy of persons and its history are discussed. The authors under scrutiny range from Epictetus to Karol Wojtyła. Sarah Scott presents an analysis of the criteria for being a person that Martin Buber put forward in his relatively little-known early writings, including his doctoral dissertation. J. Edward Hackett reconstructs the main constituents of the notion of personhood in Max Scheler. Grzegorz Hołub scrutinizes various apparently disparate claims on the subject of consciousness made by Karol Wojtyła, showing how one can build a consistent and holistic vision from them. Arkadiusz Gudaniec reassembles and synthesizes Mieczysław Krąpiec’s views of persons and personhood, availing himself not only of texts by the late Polish Dominican philosopher (and Rector of the Catholic University of Lublin in the years 1970–1982) published in English in the USA, but also of texts by him that are less well known to the English-speaking philosophical public. Charles Hogg shows how for Epictetus, the experience of death differentiates humans from other living creatures, and how this differentiation parallels the modern philosophical concept of persons rather that the Ancient idea of the “rational animal.” Marcin Podbielski puts forward conclusions from his comprehensive survey of occurrences of the vocabulary of persons (prosōpon) in Maximus the Confessor, presenting, among others, Maximus’ idea of a spiritual “face,” or truly moral human “persona,” which humans can receive through grace as an impression of the eternal paradigms of virtue.

  • Main cover

    The 2013 Autumn issue of Forum Philosophicum is devoted to Russian Philosophy. The project of this thematic volume grew out of discussions during a conference held in Cracow at Ignatianum on the 27th and 28th of June, 2013, entitled “The Reception of Russian Thought in Europe.” Our Russian colleagues raised, then, a specific concern. They complained that Russian philosophy was not meeting with an appropriate reception in the West, and that commentaries and translations in the West frequently distorted the message of Russian thinkers. The Editorial Board offered, both during the conference and in subsequent announcements in Russian at Internet sites frequented by Russian intellectuals, the possibility of peer-reviewed publication in English in a journal whose editors were in a position to ensure that their ideas would be expressed in English without distortion. As a result, we are able to present our readers with not only several scholarly papers on such Russians philosophers as Semyon Frank, Nikolai Berdayev, and Vladimir Solovyov, but also two texts enabling Western readers to become somewhat acquainted with contemporary Russian thought, and to learn in more detail about the conditions in which philosophy was being practiced in the Russian-speaking world until recently.

    The first such text is an essay by Maxim Kantor, the renowned contemporary Russian intellectual, painter, and philosopher. His proposition that renaissance and avant-garde are two recurrent but opposing phenomena within Western art and philosophy exemplifies contemporary Russian cultural criticism, in which political conservatism and a dialectical vision of history are combined in a manner that has no parallels in the West. It is followed by a historical study (whose complete text we publish in open access) by Svetlana M. Klimova and Elena S. Molostova, based on previously unpublished materials of the Institute of Scientific Atheism of the Academy of Social Sciences of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. The study shows how Marxist philosophy was viewed, and used primarily as a basis for the practice of social transformation, being focused as it was on eradicating from human minds any form of faith or religion.

    The 2013 Spring issue of Forum Philosophicum opens with a paper whose author, James A. Harold, defines “the lover of peace,” as opposed to “the pacifist,” “the appeaser,” and “the warmonger,” as someone sharing in a spiritual peace that is the fruit of the grace of humility. In a subsequent article comparing Kant to Augustine, Edgar Valdez argues that Kant’s philosophy can be read as a path to a non-religious and rationally grounded faith in God. George Patios shows how Kierkegaard’s dialectics of freedom through despair becomes a metaphysics through which a human self can be grounded in God. M. Andrew Holowchak offers a synthetic account of Thomas Jefferson’s approach to religion. Yishai Cohen advances a criticism of Skeptical Theism by pointing to logical difficulties in explaining evil when even a minimalist view of divine omnipotence is adopted. Leland Harper tracks down epistemological problems in theories that consider the indeterministic sub-atomic reality the proper theoretical space for God’s activity. Igor Gasparov critically scrutinizes some contemporary Substance Dualisms inspired by the proposals of Richard Swinburne. 

  • In this issue of the journal, we present our readers with six studies of philosophical problems pertaining to philosophy’s encounter with faith. Dale Jacquette puts forward a close examination of the concept of faith in the manner of Wittgenstein’s essential analysis. Daniel Gustafsson shows how the question of beauty, asked from the point of view of aesthetics, can be given a theological answer in the context of Christian art. Francis Jonbäck defines Frendly Sceptical Theism, by modifying some implicit premises of Williams Rowe’s Friendly Atheism. Martin Lembke proposes some refinements to Alvin Plantinga’s criticism of Patrick Grim’s rejection of the concept of an omniscient God. Anna Zhyrkova explains how deeply the appraisal and meaning of originality differ, in philosophical and theological contexts. Tadeusz Grzesik contends that someone who demands rational proofs of God’s existence is, in point of fact, irrational.

    This Spring issue of Forum Philosophicum offers five studies on a wide range of topics of Christian philosophy. Hans Goller (University of Innsbruck) discusses the limits of a purely neurological explanation of “near-death-experiences.” Leslie Armour (Professor Emeritus, University of Ottawa) proposes a new formulation of proofs of God’s existence, grounded in the tradition of rationalist ethics. Anna Tomaszewska (Jagiellonian University) criticizes McDowell’s conception of “perceptual reasons.” Yann Schmitt (Institut Catholique de Paris) points to errors in Hume’s probabilistic argument against miracles. Mark McLeod-Harrison (George Fox University) discusses the conditions for true cognition set out by Michael Lynch’s relaxed naturalism, arguing that the concept of knowing the truth requires a stronger ontology.
