    Sľuby a procedúry (The Promises and Procedures)
    Filozofia 74 (9): 735-753. 2019.
    The work tends to point out the deficiency of some opinions claiming simplified presentation of the promise as the act that directly rise obligation for the promisor. Promises, either in the moral or legal sphere, are based on communication and so form an order of dependent steps that indicates their procedural nature. These characteristics may differ to a lesser extent, depending on the legal systems, moral norms of the society and its technical level and its needs. In all these cases, however,…Read more

    ON CICERO’S FABIUS ARGUMENT
    Filozofia 75 (8). 2020.
    This article aims to show that it is impossible to put Cicero’s testimonies regarding The Fabius Argument in a consistent inferential order. Either we must suppose that additional premises are tacitly assumed in the text or we must com-pare it with other sources, which leads to inconsistencies in the proof’s reconstruction. Cicero’s reconstruction of the progression of the argument has formal shortcomings, and the paper draws attention to some of these deficiencies. He interpreted sources in a r…Read more

    „Kauza Afthonios“: Ilustrácia k otázke správneho riešenia antických paradoxov
    Organon F: Medzinárodný Časopis Pre Analytickú Filozofiu 1 (20): 88-103. 2014.
    The article deals with the question of correct reconstruction of and solutions to the ancient paradoxes. Analyzing one contemporary example of a reconstruction of the so-called Crocodile Paradox, taken from Sorensen’s A Brief History of Paradox, the author shows how the original pattern of paradox could have been incorrectly transformed in its meaning by overlooking its adequate historical background. Sorensen’s quoting of Aphthonius, as the author of a certain solution to the paradox, seems to …Read more

    Looking for the Lazy Argument Candidates
    Organon F: Medzinárodný Časopis Pre Analytickú Filozofiu 18 (3 & 4). 2011.
    The Lazy Argument, as it is preserved in historical testimonies, is not logically conclusive. In this form, it appears to have been proposed in favor of part-time fatalism (including past time fatalism). The argument assumes that free will assumption is unacceptable from the standpoint of the logical fatalist but plausible for some of the nonuniversal or part-time fatalists. There are indications that the layout of argument is not genuine, but taken over from a Megarian source and later transfor…Read more

    Toward a Demarcation of Forms of Determinism
    Organon F: Medzinárodný Časopis Pre Analytickú Filozofiu 24 (1): 54-84. 2017.
    In the current philosophical literature, determinism is rarely defined explicitly. This paper attempts to show that there are in fact many forms of determinism, most of which are familiar, and that these can be differentiated according to their particular components. Recognizing the composite character of determinism is thus central to demarcating its various forms.

    Callimachus' Puzzle about Diodorus
    Organon F: Medzinárodný Časopis Pre Analytickú Filozofiu 2 (4): 342-367. 1995.
    The author tends to emphasize that there are at least three reasons to analyze Callimachus\' epigram about Diodorus : First of all, the date of this epigram shows us that it represents the earliest information about Diodorus doctrine. Second, another support of its authenticity could be found in fact that this epigram expressing part of the atmosphere following, and also remaining after, discussing the Diodorian topics. Third, its philosophical relevance, usually minimized in classical literatur…Read more
