As early as the mid-20th century, Gödel’s incompleteness theorems and the works of Church and Turing constituted arguments in favour of the existence of synthetic a priori judgements. The American logician Irving Copi was the first to use Gödel’s first incompleteness theory to that end. While his small work went almost unnoticed,...

Hagiographic genre in the works of Konrad von Wurzburg

Icon painters never perceived iconography as a dogmatic prescription. Iconography played the role of ...
