Joao Carlos Holland de Barcellos

Me, Religion and Culture

Amos Avny
Me—the creative Individual, Religion—the uncontainable Universe, and Culture—the spiritual sphere that envelopes us, constitutes the triad that leads the article.

Luiz Maurício Bentim da Rocha Menezes
On Plato’s Phaedrus, Socrates, in his Second Speech (243e9-257b6), decides to make a demonstration [aπoδειξιc] that the madness of love was given to us by gods for our happiness. This consists in finding the truth about human nature of the soul [ψυχncφvσεωc], both divine and human. We take this demonstration as an object of our analysis, specifically the passage 245c, where Socrates will affir

Marx’s Religious Dilemma: An Islamic Reply

Muhammad Rizwan Junaid, Khadija Naz

On Dialectics and the Basic Contradiction in Capitalism

Bruno Jossa
The contradiction which is classified as the severest one in most Marxist analyses of society is the plan-market opposition. From this, it follows that the social order that will rise from the ashes of capitalism upon the solution of this contradiction must be a centrally planned and, hence, non-market system. The author emphasizes that, instead, the existence of a different contradiction whose solution is compatible with the
