M. Méndez 2023-01-23T14:50:29+01:00 Javier Barraca Mairal javier.barraca@urjc.es <p>This research explores the thought of J. M. Méndez about the ways of demonstrating the existence of God. Méndez is a current Spanish thinker who has written mainly about values, axiology, and logic. He rethinks this topic thanks to his reflection on the value of truth. Moreover, he follows a new path by resorting in this respect to logic and in particular to formalized logic. Our work develops a critical analysis of his argument.</p> 2023-01-23T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW.

Understanding how these people achieve a normal level of functioning, without developing personal or psychopathological problems in their adolescence or adulthood, is highly relevant for the prevention and treatment of different disorders.</p> 2023-01-31T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW.

For this work, we problematize and detach ourselves from its valuation as a science. We take as a basis the philosophical orientation that views science from the materialistic perspective of the Theory of Categorial Closure, in order to subsequently examine and conceive law as a techno-praxis in relation to the three-dimensional theory as a conceptual framework, thus allowing to consolidate an usable project at the service of the legal researcher.</p> 2023-02-13T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW.

Assuming the complex task of analyzing the results of a qualitative study, this article exposes from a structuralist approach, a proposal to analyze and construct social representations from the central core theory. Thus validate in methodological terms, a way to graphically express results for a holistic analysis and interpretation of these central and peripheral notions. The proposal is elaborated for application in studies with primary sources such as interviews and their treatment through a content analysis.</p> 2023-02-13T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW.

This paper seeks to present the status of the problem through the solutions proposed by Lev Vaidman and David Deutsch and to relate them, as well as to present probability as an epistemological postulate, in accordance with the subjectivistic interpretation.</p> 2023-02-28T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW.

The judgement which this film addresses is extraordinary, being one in which judges themselves were judged by other judges; as such, it presents a perfect example through which to think about the social responsibility of the legal profession with respect to the application of Law and what relationship this has to broader moral and ethical considerations of the value of human rights.</p> 2023-03-13T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW.

Both currents, in fidelity to ethnographic data, share the rejection of the regime of representation and both currents bring into question the epistemic commitments of the researcher. However, the ontological turn presents a conceptual orientation, which often leads to typology, while phenomenological anthropology deals with the perceptive relations of the life world from a hermeneutic openness.</p> 2023-03-13T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW.

I look at the centrality of affective relations in the transformation of queer subjectivity under processes of the growing (un)happiness in the diasporic homeSpace. Shani Mootoo’s (non)diasporic cross-border narrative proposes contrastive figurations of the subject through temporal and spatial frameworks. Mootoo’s “transposable moves” resist a naïve return to sentimentality or nostalgic love to advocate instead a turn to sustainable affects.</p> 2023-01-19T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW.

Deshpande director_bud@siu.edu.in Ole Boe Ole.Boe@usn.no Andrzej Piotrowski andrzej.piotrowski@ug.edu.pl <p>In this article, researchers will introduce readers to the concept of leadership through perspectives of different schools of leadership thoughts. We intend to bring to notice an important discussion on leadership in military organisations and its implications on non-military organisations and institutions. There is a plethora of literature especially borrowing from military literature, which can set the stage for our understanding of what could make up for a robust leadership model comprising of competencies like- power of personal example and influence, adaptive resilience, making critical decisions amid uncertainty, regulated leadership behaviors and thoughts, preparedness, communicating with teams and building trust.</p> 2023-02-17T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW.

The problem is that it reduces the aesthetic significance that Dewey attributed to artistic production. Analyzing Dewey’s work and its interpreters, I will demonstrate that the continuity of ordinary experience and art is what lends art its vital and distinctive character. The work of art contributes to developing other ways of seeing and acting in the world, reinforcing life in common, the basis of democracy.</p> 2023-03-10T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW. International Humanities Review / Revista Internacional de Humanidades https://journals.eagora.org/revHUMAN/article/view/3751 The intellectual: responsibility, betrayal and conflict 2023-03-14T10:38:39+01:00 Jacinto H. Calderón González jacinto.calderon@urjc.es <p>This article aims to show what it has meant to be an intellectual, emphasizing its original function in contrast to what is considered their betrayal. The article begins with the Dreyfus Affair and, with Benda and Chomsky, it will seek to qualify the task of the intellectual as well as his responsibility. The discussions offered here will lead us to observe the ideological dynamics of the 20th century and attention will be paid to the lifestyle of the intellectual, attending to the criticisms that Barthes collected about Poujade as well as the poisoned darts that Schopenhauer launched at the philosophers of his time. Darts that, according to post-truth, are quite current.</p> 2023-03-13T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 HUMAN REVIEW. International Humanities Review / Revista Internacional de Humanidades
