Filozofia, 65 (2010), 1, 12-26.

Heidegger’s interpretation of Husserl’s Logical investigations as presented in his lectures History of the concept of time: Prolegomena (1925) was a remarkable contribution in the development of phenomenology: First, Heidegger starts with the interpretation of intentionality and his considerations become thus methodologically transparent (contrary to the language… Read more

(Original title: Filozofia matematiky raného Ernsta Cassirera)
Filozofia, 65 (2010), 1, 27-39.

Filozofia, 65 (2010), 1, 49-62.

Young Philosophy

(Original title: K interpretácii Moorovej protiskeptickej filozofie)
Filozofia, 65 (2010), 1, 74-82.

G. E. Moore replies to skepticism by using propositions which from the common sense perspective are trivially true. However, it seems that his replies are not effective, because the skeptic’s doubts concern precisely the common sense truths. This problem became the subject of various interpretations. N. Malcolm and B. Stroud suggest that Moore is not trying to… Read more
