Edward J. Grippe Socrates, Plato and the Tao
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This paper is a reconsideration of Platonic dialogues in the light of Taoist insights. The application of Socratic Ignorance to the entire corpus of Plato reveals the yin and yang not only in the internal dialogue between Socrates and Plato, but also between Plato and his reader. Furthermore, this approach brings to the surface the necessity of the dialectic relation between the yang of Western analysis and the yin of Asian intuition to the revelation of the Tao.

Vladimir Marchenkov Art and Religion in the Age of Denounced Master-Narratives

The myth is adopted for ideological, not philosophical reasons and calls for alternatives to make religious art possible.

Then I show that the metaphor creates a poor conceptual model that yields false or misleading conclusions about how Cyberspace functions.

Patricia Trentacoste Why Aren't Moral People Always Moral?: An Argument for Considering Personality as the Foundational Link Between Biology and Context
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In order to reduce internal dissonance and emotional pain, the personality plays a causal role in confabulating consistency among our beliefs, values and actions. To the extent that we are unaware of our own moral ''blind spots," a prima facie duty to engage in self-knowledge exists. Only then can we reduce injustices incurring from moral arrogance.
