    Educational Technology along with the Uncritical Mass versus Ethics
    with Mehdi Nassaji
    British Journal of Educational Studies 61 (3). 2013.
    This paper considers the ethics of educational technology in terms of whether or not selected media and methods are beneficial to the teacher and student, or whether other motives and criteria determine the selection. Communications media have proven themselves to be powerful and efficient tools, used like ?dynamite? for getting the most out of a ?quarry?, but the vast scope of their applicability and flexibility may notoriously neglect the unprecedented risks to the user of current online metho…Read more

    There is a robust tendency within the contemporary feminist mainstream to argue against and ultimately reject the so-called ‘dualising or dualist philosophy’ since it is the supportive paradigm background for any gender discrimination originated from the hegemonic sovereignty of masculinity over femininity. In this paper, having dived deeper into the feminist critical depiction of the logical binarist foundation on which the dualising philosophy is said to be well-grounded, I will proceed to por…Read more

Based on the notion of animality in its biological sense, he puts forward a project thro…Read more

    Ethical Responsibility in Emmanuel Levinas's Thought; the Other-Driven Passivity of the I
    Journal of Philosophical Investigations at University of Tabriz 8 (14): 165-182. 2014.
    Emmanuel Levinas, adopting his peculiar phenomenological approach, views the I's responsibility for the Other as the sole foundation of being ethical, and summons humanity to be aware of its infinite and immediate responsibility.

    The Subject’s Embodiment In The Midst of Ontology And Ethics: A Phenomenological Survey of The Body In Martin Heidegger And Emmanuel Levinas’ Thoughts
    with Mohammadreza Rikhtegaran
    Journal of Philosophical Theological Research 21 (79): 71-96. 2019.
    Received: 01/02/2018 | Accepted: 09/04/2019 In his Being and Time, Heidegger does not illustrate Dasein’s embodiment but he postpones his illustration for some time in the future, namely in his Zollikon Seminars. In the seminars, Heidegger provides his clearest elucidation for this primordial fact that Dasein’s embodiment is openness to the world; Dasein’s existence extends beyond and over its physical body thereby construing and analysing the world from an existential standpoint. He puts forwar…Read more
