🔴 Great Britain and the Confederacy

This essay describes the efforts of the Confederate States of America to convince Great Britain to support its secession from the United States. Although the South’s leaders were confident that Britain’s need for cotton would lead it to become an ally, numerous factors—including the British public’s aversion to slavery—contributed to the country remaining neutral.

A United States of Europe

A free and unified Europe was first imagined by Italian radicals in the 19th century. Could we yet see their dream made real?

Origen of Alexandria and the History of Racism as a Theological Problem

Earlier scholarly accounts that portray Origen as a champion of human equality and as engaged in anti-racist efforts therefore cannot stand up to scrutiny. Origen disparages certain ethnic groups and develops arguments that connect ethnic identity and geographical location with various degrees of sinfulness. His work offers clear evidence that theories of ethnic inferiority have a long history within the Christian matrix that stretches considerably beyond the modern and medieval periods.

Matthijs den Dulk, Origen of Alexandria and the History of Racism as a Theological Problem, The Journal of Theological Studies, Volume 71, Issue 1, April 2020, Pages 164–195, https://doi.org/10.1093/jts/flaa025

"In the following essay, which is in four parts, it is what is considered the informal-fallacy literature that will be reviewed. Part 1 is an introduction to the core fallacies as brought to us by the tradition of the textbooks. Part 2 reviews the history of the development of the conceptions of fallacies as it is found from Aristotle to Copi. Part 3 surveys some of the most recent innovative research on fallacies, and Part 4 considers some of the current research topics in fallacy theory."

"I hope that by the end of this video you'll get a better understanding of what a logical fallacy is, and why we might want to avoid them. But also why in some contexts, what might seem to be fallacious reasoning, might actually be much more defensible than previously thought." https://youtu.be/PthVXsLEqh8

"This essay is a historical and epistemological exploration of a traditionally crazy economic event: the financial bubble. Venturing into two different moments in the history of economic thinking, it investigates financial bubbles as epistemic frontiers, where rationality has reached its limits."

Journey of the Mind

The wheel of life turns, consciousness makes abrupt shifts between, on one hand, a clear and distinct image of reality, and on the other hand, a vague and hallucinatory projection of the realm of imagination. Is it then possible to observe your own consciousness? Does it cease to be conscious of the link to the otherworldly if it is not dusted off?

For the next issue of the Russian Israeli literary magazine "Dvoetochie", I was asked to reflect on the topic of "Apocalypse". What it is, how it relates to our present, what role literature could play in the times of the end, and how our relations with literature and reading changes for after certain tragic and seminal points in time.
