Balázs Gyenis' study "Determinism, Physical Possibility, and Laws of Nature" has been published in Foundations of Physics. The paper calls attention to different formulations of how physical laws relate to what is physically possible in the philosophical literature, and argue that it may be the case that determinism fails under one formulation but reigns under the other. The text is available here.

Ferenc Hörcher authored an English language monograph, entitled A Political Philosophy of Conservatism. Prudence, Moderation and Tradition. It has been published by Bloomsbury Publishing, in the United Kingdom. The volume offers a sketch of a comprehensive political philosophy, which aims to replace justice with prudence in the heart of political thought.
