(Original title: BonJour’s Internalist Foundationalism and Epistemic Virtues)Filozofia, 78 (2023), 2, 77 - 85.
BonJour’s argumentative strategy underlying his account of internalist empirical foundationalism posits a descriptive relation between an empirical belief and the corresponding sensory experience. I argue that his argumentative strategy makes it necessary to appeal to epistemic virtues, such as accuracy, simplicity and coherency, for the epistemic assessment of the… Read more
(Original title: Hodnotová etika jako snaha o překonání Kanta: kritická reflexe Schelerovy teorie hodnot)Filozofia, 78 (2023), 2, 86 - 100.

The pre- sent paper agrees with these reactions, but it goes one step further by arguing that: once individuality has been established, the… Read more
(Original title: What Makes a Similarity Superficial? An Exercise in the Methodology of the History of Philosophy)Filozofia, 78 (2023), 2, 128 - 135.
The essay reports on the author’s attempts to demonstrate similarities between prima facie divergent thinkers. Objections to this attempt have often concerned the question of the “superficiality” of the similarities noted. The paper examines these objections and proposes an understanding of the relevant concept of superficiality as a consequence of what Alan Nelson… Read more
