Objectives and Results of Philosophical Enquiry within Wissenschaft des Judentums
The philosophical understanding of Wissenschaft continued to have an impact well beyond Hegel, even though the way Wissenschaft continued to see itself became more and more influenced by those disciplines which were then trying to establish themselves as Einzelwissenschaften and as independent of philosophy. Still, the attempt to constitute philosophy as fundamental to Wissenschaft was a trend of the early nineteenth century, because philosophy was uniquely qualified to provide methodological explanations and to decide, by speculative design or by experiment, what Wissenschaft could be and should be. Wissenschaft, on the basis of philosophy, could clarify the object of research, its domains and overall relevance, assess the method to be used and the objectives to be attained; it could provide the appropriate terminology, as well as a historical analysis and it would present the unifying view and integration against the dangers of too much specialisation.
The importance of freedom in Sartre’s philosophy cannot be overestimated, and the understanding of Sartre’s account of freedom is necessary for the understanding of Sartre’s philosophy as a whole. In this article, I will show that there are two distinct, but related, notions of freedom used in Being and Nothingness, and will suggest that a clarification of the two notions will open the possibility of grounding Sartre’s demand that each individual should promote the freedom of all Others.

Towards a More Just Philosophical Community
This article examines the Australian ‘Continental Philosophy’ community through the lens of the Azanian philosophical tradition. Specifically, it interrogates the series of conversations around race and methodology that arose from the 2017 Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy (ASCP) conference. At the heart of these were questions of place, race, Indigeneity, and the very meaning of ‘Continental Philosophy’ in Australia. The pages that follow pursue those questions, grappling with the relationship between the articulation of disciplinary bounds and the exercise of colonial power. Having struggled with the political and existential cost of participation in the epistemic community that is the ASCP, I argue for disengagement and the exploration of alternative intellectual communities. This is ultimately a call to intellectual work grounded on ethical relations rather than on the furtherance of the status quo. It is a call to take seriously the claim, ‘the land is ours’.
Spinoza has been regarded as a philosophical outsider, ‘at odds with what became the philosophical mainstream . . . [and] to read him is to glimpse unrealised possibilities . . . and alternative ways of thinking of minds and bodies . . . agency and responsibility, of the relation between human beings and the rest of nature, between reason and the passions.’ and also of freedom. Today, the controversial philosophy of Spinoza’s Ethics is often described as all-encompassing and celebrated as ‘one of the most remarkable metaphysical systems in the entire history of philosophy’.
