The resurrection of the undead?

CEASCRO simply won’t die. Even after its death, project CEASCRO keeps publishing outputs.
No seriously, as a final loose end, old CEASCRO members and new RAD members Marko Jurjako, Luca Malatesti and John McMillan have edited a special issue of the European Journal of Analytic Philosophy that is entitled “Psychopathy: Philosophical and Empirical Challenges“.
The special issue is comprised of six original articles by renowned psychopathy scholars. The issue can be openly accessed here and here.

New publication – Devitt’s promiscuous essentialism

Project CEASCRO’s department for natural kinds is keeping busy. This time Zdenka Brzović is flying solo!

Her paper entitled “Devitt’s Promiscuous Essentialism” (controversial much!) has been accepted for publication in the Croatian Journal of Philosophy.

Congrats Vena (Italo sic)!

The paper will be published in the next issue of the CJP that is dedicated to the work of Michael Devitt (CUNY).

Another recognition!

Luca Malatesti, the CEO of the CEASCRO factory, has been awarded the annual prize for scientific excellence of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Rijeka. He mostly managed to impress the judges with the several co-authored outputs of the project. Although he has expressed gratitude to the co-authors, Marko Jurjako, Zdenka Brzović, Elvio Baccarini, Filip Čeč, Predrag Šustar, Vesna Šendula Jengić, and Jelena Hodak, he has neither disclosed the value of monetary reward nor whether he will share it with them…. But we congratulate him the same.

The kindness of pychopaths

We are proud to announce that another CEASCRO paper has been published. This time the lead author is Zdenka Brzović, who in a colaboration with Marko Jurjako and Predrag Šustar wrote a paper entitled “The kindness of psychopaths” published in the International studies in the philosophy of science.

Don’t be misled by the title, they are not actually (a) kind! In the paper, the authors discuss whether psychopathy should be considered a natural kind.

The paper is published open access thanks to a grant by the Croatian science foundation.
