KANT E WITTGENSTEIN: on the limits of language

(portuguese only)

Based on an analysis of Kant's transcendental deduction and Wittgenstein's private language argument, the book attempts to highlight the philosophical resonances of Kant and Wittgenstein and to provide an answer to a certain strand of philosophical skepticism / solipsism that still reverberates in our language and in our ways of thinking.

Basic Social Rights: a philosophical inquiry on human rights

(portuguese only)

The book presents a defense of basic social rights qua human rights. The author analyzes different attempts to justify human rights throughout the history of philosophy and supports the thesis that human rights correspond to moral demands aimed at ensuring respect for all the members of our moral community. Among such guarantees stands the right to an existential minimum.
