"A Kantian Perspective on Digital Privacy, Human Rights, & Duties"

In this paper, I identify Immanuel Kant's Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals and Doctrine of Virtue as untapped resources for discovering new insights on digital privacy. Using Kant's framework, I argue that the voluntary relinquishment of digital privacy often leads to the objectification of rational beings on Kant's account that constitutes a certain dereliction of duties to oneself and to others. 

"Can Love be the Proper Object of a Contract?"

In this paper, I delve into the significance of traditional marriage vows as emblematic examples of commissive acts, drawing upon J.L. Austin's influential speech act theory. Through an in-depth analysis, I explore the different types of commissive speech acts that can be attributed to traditional marriage vows. After examining various categorizations, I propose a specific classification that aligns with J.L. Austin's doctrine of infelicities. By undertaking this investigation, I shed light on the intricate relationship between traditional marriage vows, commissive acts, and the philosophical insights offered by J.L. Austin's speech act theory.
