The Dual Nature of the Female Gender: A Modern Reflection (Published)

The female sex has over time been regarded to be ‘like a weaker vessel.’ But without serious disputation to this biblical injunction, I am bothered about the clarity of the intention of the bible and the misinterpretation of its adherent, for I tend to belief that this assertion does not really capture the intrinsic nature of the women folks, in terms of their strength and versatility and what they can offer the society.  This of course we will agree has a serious psychological effect from time immemorial on their disposition to the men folks. Dualistic as used in this paper focuses on the two sides of the woman, manifesting within the private space and that of the public space. The women over the years have been struggling with the challenges of being able to handle their private responsibilities and that of public space responsibilities. This paper, therefore, x-rays, the marriage of convenience between these dual responsibilities and tries to prove that it is achievable.

Anomy and Postmodern Relativism (Published)

The presented study deals with philosophical analysis of modern and postmodern notions of public space.  The actual problem of relativism in European culture is a consequence of essentialism, the belief that the world, reality or universe, has some inner essence which cannot be grasped in the language. Text analyzes the two main themes. Firstly, the treatise attempts at an philosophical analysis of the category – public space. It points out the dissension between the traditional and postmodern definition of this conception and the consequences resulting from these different attitudes. As far as the methodology is concerned, the study is based on French postmodern philosopher  J. F. Lyotard, presenting the postmodern approach as a greater contribution. In postmodern public area we can meet two basic types of dissentions, while only the first of them can be solved by further grow of specialization and the expertlike know. The second part of the study discusses  Richard Rorty’s philosophy,  influence of Rorty’s ideas on solving some traditional philosophical topics, especially the question of relativism.  Richard Rorty’s untraditional, provocative and inspiring version of neo-pragmatism enables us to view all the theories created so far by human culture as a case with tools. Physics and astronomy can be seen as a way to cope with some aspects of the Universe, philosophy, religion or literature as ways that help us cope with other aspects of the reality.  One form of research results in statements, another in images, mathematical equations or stories.  The emphasis is put on the analysis of the influence of neo-pragmatism and continental postmodernism on Rorty’s writings.
