Philosophy

Taraneh Javanbakht's works are in several branches of philosophy. Her philosophical writings, netism, including her theories in metaphysics, analytical philosophy, ethics and political philosophy, was published in the Journal of New Philosophy, the College Student Journal of Tabatabai University in Iran in 2011 and 2012 and as her dissertation in the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in 2016. Some other parts of netism, including the aesthetics and epistemology, were republished by the Center for the Great Islamic Encyclopedia in 2016.

The genealogy, according to netism, has three steps: 1. The Being tendential of itself, which is the universe, 2. The being tendential of himself that is the human being in his first step of existence, and 3. The being detendential of himself that is the human being in his second step of existence, who reduces continuously the tendencies of repetition in his life.

Her theory in cognitive science, the demarcator theory, is in opposition with the prototype theory and exemplar theory. The demarcator theory was published by the Université du Québec à Montréal in 2016. This theory explains why, when and how human beings distinguish or confound the categories of concepts. She formalized this theory by the combination of non-classical logics.

She introduced and developed the tendential logic, a new logic with applications in sciences, philosophy, literature, arts and social movements. The tendential logic and its applications were published by the Université du Québec à Montréal in 2016. Her works on different models showed that the combination of the tendential logic with the other non-classical logics, such as fuzzy logic and modal logic, is appropriate to model the human cognitive disorders.Her other philosophical articles were republished by the Tebyan Cultural Institute in 2008, the Iranian Students News Agency in 2004 and the National Content Consortium in 2013.
