Abstract

Renouncing authentic thought and arguing on the basis of abstract categories and sterile juxtapositions of concepts is a risk to which every thinker is subject. The philosophical debate itself often takes place within conceptual paradigms which, although universally accepted, sometimes do not correspond to the actual situation they are supposed to describe and need further examination. Dragan Jakovljević's book, which takes the form of a collection of seven different essays, most of which have already been published previously, constantly strives to unmask the false myths on which philosophical discussion in various spheres has been guiltily fossilized in recent years. The author - a professor of ethics and theory of knowledge at the University of Podgorica - offers a sharp and balanced reflection on some of the hottest topics in various disciplines, in an analysis that ranges from epistemology to ethics, from social sciences to philosophy of religion. Thus, the epistemological issues of the validity of knowledge and the method of scientific research are addressed, as well as problems that emerge from the public debate, such as the correct conception of tolerance in a pluralistic society or the role that religion can and must play in this context. The argumentation is mostly based on a comparison with the tradition of critical rationalism, in particular the thinking of K.R. Popper and H. Albert. Albert, with whom the author completed his doctoral studies at the University of Mannheim.
