“The Persianate Cosmology of Historical Inquiry in the Caucasus: ʿAbbās Qulī Āghā Bākīkhānūf’s Cosmological Cosmopolitanism,” Comparative Literature (2019)

Rebecca Ruth Gould
This article engages with cosmopolitan conceptions of culture that flourished in the nineteenth century Caucasus with a view to clarifying the relevance of these legacies today. I focus in particular on the polymath writer ʿAbbās Qulī Āghā Bākīkhānūf (1794–1847). As I explore Bākīkhānūf’s historical writing, I consider how the Persianate literary tradition of which he partakes advance a cosmopolitan conception of community that contests the nationalist histories promulgated by modern European historiography. As a scientific...

American Buddhist Protection of Stones in terms of Climate Change on Mars and Earth

Daniel Capper
A number of scientific writers have proposed manipulating the ecology of Mars in order to make the planet more comfortable for future immigrants from Earth. However, the ethical acceptability of such ‘terraforming’ proposals remains unresolved. In response, in this article I explore some of these scientific proposals through the lens provided by Buddhist environmental ethics that are quantitatively expressed by practitioners in the ethnographic field of the United States. What I find is that contemporary...

Kant's Parasite: Sublime Biodeconstruction

Jonathan Basile
In Kant's Critique of Judgment, his exploration of how something like life (organized matter) can appear to the faculties of a finite consciousness makes life as possible as it is impossible. A passing reference Kant makes to the idea that every organ of an organism can be seen as a parasite is taken as a lever to deconstruct his notion of organized beings as forming an ultimately coherent nature (an ethicoteleological whole). This reading is...

Llangollen Town Band - Minutes 1925-1957

HC User
Some notes on the history of the band, from the band's extinct website, together with scans of two books of minutes of the old Llangollen Town Band which were discovered some years ago as part of a parcel of books in an antique shop in Yorkshire. It is not known how or when the books became "lost", but the original books now reside safely with the current Llangollen Silver Band.

Anthropomorphization in the context of human cooperation with intelligent machines

Benjamin Schiffer
Intelligent machines have a profound impact on individuals and society. We show how human-machine cooperation plays an important role in the transformation that is taking place and should therefore be a key focus of machine behaviour. In this context, we discuss algorithm aversion and the human reluctance to cooperate with (intelligent) machines. There is a transparency-efficiency trade-off regarding human-machine cooperation as misguiding humans into believing that their cooperation partner was human increases efficiency. We argue...

Hoax Language Rhetoric and Hate Speech as A Principle Representation of Democratic Rights

Max Allan, Shapier Moonches & Tony Tony Williams
On the Internet, when you search for deceptive rhetoric or rhetoric hoax, you'll get more than two million hits for either one. That volume of hits is an echo of what we've heard all our lives---that Rhetoric is associated with deception and trickery, even though the college experts try to reassure us that the discipline of Rhetoric is really neutral. Fact is, though, most of what the public knows about Rhetoric is a hoax, especially...

El interlocutor interiorizado

José Angel GARCÍA LANDA
Spanish Abstract: Presentamos una perspectiva pragmalingüística sobre la actuación discursiva inspirada en la sociología dramatística de Erving Goffman. En su actuación discursiva el hablante intenta justificar su postura con respecto a la afiliación con grupos e identidades sociales determinadas. Al posicionarse, perfila su identidad y modela su personalidad social, presentándose como imbuido de ciertos valores representativos de procesos discursivos y sociales más amplios. Y haciendo esto proyecta tanto una imagen de sí mismo como una...

The Costs and Benefits of a Christian Coalition: A Response to Ralph Reed

John Witte, Jr.
This brief Article analyzes the traditional Protestant pedigree of the political teachings of the Christian coalition that formed the heart of the “moral majority” movement of the Reagan era. While applauding the coalition’s efforts to bring moral reform to American society, the Article criticizes one if its intellectual leaders, Ralph Reed, for ignoring the deeper theological foundations of Protestant political thought, and uncritically conflating conservative American Republican thought with the teachings of the Bible and...

Moderate Religious Liberty in the Theology of John Calvin

John Witte, Jr.
Some scholars portray John Calvin as a champion of religious liberty and human rights. Others view him as a rigid and brutal theocrat. This article shows that neither interpretation does justice to Calvin’s complex and evolving views of spiritual and political liberty. In his early writings, Calvin distinguished sharply between the spiritual and political liberty of individuals, and showed how these two concepts of liberty operated in the heavenly and earthly kingdoms respectively. In his...
