  • The Divine Method and the Disunity of Pleasure in the Philebus
    • Abstract: the philebus is a puzzling dialogue, both for the substantive views it puts forward,1 and for the unexpected twists and turns of the discussion. Commentators frequently complain about the dialogue's lack of unity, due to its many apparently unnecessary digressions and interruptions.2 The discussion of the so-called 'divine method' seems to be one of the worst offenders on this score, for it is described and exemplified at length (16c–20a), only to be set aside as unnecessary shortly afterwards (20c).I argue that the divine method plays a vital role in the subsequent examination and evaluation of pleasure and knowledge. I focus in particular on the application of the divine method to pleasure, since the method is ... Read More

  • Spinoza's Acquiescentia
    • Abstract: in part iv of the Ethics, Spinoza writes that "self-esteem [acquiescentia in se ipso] is really the highest thing we can hope for."1 He opposes this affect to both humility and repentance, which are integral to Christian virtue; he describes pride—for Augustine, the root of sin—as a kind of acquiescentia in se ipso. Of course, Spinoza's distinctive views about God were enough to draw the charge of atheism from many of his contemporaries. But one of these critics, Pierre Poiret, took the suggestion that we should aspire above all to "self-esteem" as a clear sign that Spinoza's philosophy was immoral and unchristian. For Poiret, acquiescentia in se ipso is "a vice, head and root of all [vices], and true atheism."2 ... Read More

  • If We Stop Thinking About Berkeley's Problem of Continuity, Will It Still
           Exist?
    • Abstract: every beginning philosophy student learns that Berkeley denies the existence of matter and holds instead that the existence of sensible objects consists in being perceived.1 She also learns that Berkeley holds that sensible objects exist continuously, even when no finite mind perceives them, since God always perceives them.Berkeley seems to say so explicitly in the Third Dialogue:When I deny sensible things an existence out of the mind, I do not mean my mind in particular, but all minds. Now it is plain they have an existence exterior to my mind. . . . There is therefore some other mind wherein they exist, during the intervals between the times of my perceiving them. . . . And as the same is true, with regard to ... Read More

  • Kant, The Actualist Principle, and The Fate of the Only Possible Proof
    • Abstract: one important product of kant's pre-critical metaphysics is the proof of God's existence that he presented in The Only Possible Argument (OPA) of 1763.1 Kant's proof moves from what I will call here the 'actualist principle' (AP), every real possibility must be grounded in actuality, to the conclusion that there exists a unique necessary being, i.e. an ens realissimum, which grounds all real possibility. The pre-critical proof deserves interest in its own right, for not only does it have an intriguing logical structure, but it also allows us to observe Kant's first elaborate discussion of modal concepts. However, what has attracted particular scholarly attention in the last few decades is the perplexing attitude ... Read More

  • Schopenhauer and Non-Cognitivist Moral Realism
    • Abstract: schopenhauer has been ignored in contemporary metaethics, and his commentators rarely attempt to analyze his metaethical views in contemporary terms. This is unfortunate. Schopenhauer has something important to teach us about moral realism.1I have both philosophical and interpretive aims in this paper. My philosophical aim is to show how Schopenhauer's views challenge the contemporary understanding of moral realism. The challenge arises from the fact that, while Schopenhauer's view implies that morality is "real" in a metaphysically- and epistemologically-robust sense, that view denies (or at least, is compatible with denying) a central piece of the contemporary definition of moral realism: the cognitive (i.e. ...

  • Boarding Neurath's Boat: The Early Development of Quine's Naturalism
    • Abstract: next to his celebrated rejection of the analytic-synthetic distinction, Quine's most influential contribution to contemporary philosophy is arguably his naturalism, the idea that "it is within science itself, and not in some prior philosophy, that reality is to be identified and described."1 Instead of examining whether our scientific theories are truly justified and investigating whether the entities posited by those theories really exist (in some distinctively philosophical way), Quine argues that we cannot but start from within our scientific web of beliefs, gradually improving our theories in a piecemeal fashion in the course of our inquiries.Many excellent papers have been written about the exact ...

  • Form Without Matter: Empedocles and Aristotle on Color Perception by Mark
           Eli Kalderon (review)
    • Abstract: Kalderon describes his book as "an essay in the philosophy of perception written in the medium of historiography" (vii). It is an example of what has sometimes been called 'philosophical scholarship' or 'philosophical exegesis'—that is, scholarship on a historical thinker that is intended to bring to light a view of enduring philosophical significance and to commend it to the attention of contemporary philosophers working on the relevant issues. This is an especially challenging genre, and I do not think that Kalderon navigates it successfully, but he has nonetheless produced a book of great value to students of Aristotle's theory of perception—especially students who are also interested in contemporary work on ...

  • The Political Writings. Volume 2: Political Regime and Summary of Plato's
           Laws by Alfarabi (review)
    • Abstract: Butterworth here offers a perfectible translation of the Political Regime and a commendable, skilled rendition of the Summary of Plato's Laws. These two texts are published together and in this order because the contrast between their respective contents and methods would show that only in the last fourth of the first, as opposed to the whole of the second, "does Alfarabi consider political life as it usually is" (8), that is, shorn of what Leo Strauss's disciples regard as metaphysical humbug. Metaphysics, they contend, is synonymous with Neoplatonism, which, in turn, is synonymous with specious religious rhetoric. In Butterworth's opinion, Alfarabi resorted to it as a veil, opaque and gilded enough to keep his ... Read More

  • Maimonides' Guide of the Perplexed: A Philosophical Guide by Alfred L.
           Ivry (review)
    • Abstract: Although there has never been a shortage of book-length commentaries on Plato's Republic, Descartes's Meditations, or Spinoza's Ethics, the same cannot be said of Maimonides's Guide of the Perplexed. A few Hebrew commentaries exist, but they are neither influential nor readily accessible to English-speaking audiences. So while there has been a noticeable resurgence of interest in Maimonides since the publication of Shlomo Pines's English translation in 1963, there is still a respect in which Ivry's book breaks new ground.The reasons for the lack of such a commentary are several. The original text is written in Judeo-Arabic and presupposes advanced knowledge of the Hebrew Bible, rabbinic commentaries on the Bible ... Read More

  • L'essentialisme de Guillaume d'Ockham by Magali Roques (review)
    • Abstract: In this short but dense monograph, Roques sets out to fill a significant lacuna in the literature on William of Ockham's logic, epistemology, and metaphysics: his theory of real definitions. Remarkably, the subject has received little attention, given that nominal definitions, specifically in connection to complex connotative concepts in mental language and their role in Ockham's ontological reductionism, have been a central focus since the early 1980s. One reason for this oversight may be the historical association between real definitions and the realist view that essences are universal entities. Ockham, a resemblance nominalist, holds that all essences are individual entities; this does not, as Roques's present ... Read More

  • Articulating Medieval Logic by Terence Parsons (review)
    • Abstract: One of the founding myths of analytic philosophy is that the predicate logic developed in the late nineteenth century was far more powerful than its predecessors. This ambitious book argues that, on the contrary, medieval philosophers developed "a system of logic that is similar to the predicate calculus in richness and power" (4)—or that, as Parsons put it in his presidential address to the American Philosophical Association, "the core of medieval logic is as accurate and as expressive as the core of contemporary logic."The bulk of the book is devoted to identifying and reconstructing this "core theory" (1). Historians will wonder if any such thing existed across the centuries. It helps to realize that the focus ... Read More

  • Diritto e teologia alle soglie dell'età moderna: Il problema della
           potentia Dei absoluta in Giordano Bruno by Massimiliano Traversino
           (review)
    • Abstract: Let us imagine for a moment that God is a most accomplished cithara player who nevertheless is not playing (non citareggia) because he does not have a cithara; in other words, he is someone who has all the skills to act in the most masterly manner (che può fare), but refrains from acting (ma non fa) due to a lack of material implements. As no bodily counterpart (la potenza passiva de le cose) can match his active power, he finds himself in the awkward situation of not being able to express himself. This is the conundrum that the early modern philosopher Giordano Bruno (1548–1600) brings to the attention of his readers in De l'infinito, universo e mondi (On the Infinite, the Universe and the Worlds), one of the ...

  • Nature, Human Nature, and Human Difference: Race in Early Modern
           Philosophy by Justin E. H. Smith (review)
    • Abstract: Justin Smith's book, a sophisticated history of the scientific and philosophical debates on nature, human nature, and human difference in the last centuries, is an important contribution to the pressing task of understanding and remedying our seemingly intractable color prejudice, that "curious kink" of the "human mind," as W. E. B. DuBois put it in a passage Smith uses as an epigraph to his book. It reveals how kinds of people, notably races that appear to be natural kinds, "carved out within nature," in fact only come into being "in the course of human history as a result of the way human beings conceptualize the world around them" (3). It also reveals how the gradual emergence of the race concept was facilitated ... Read More

  • Essays on Spinoza's Ethical Theory ed. by Matthew J. Kisner and Andrew
           Youpa (review)
    • Abstract: In the introductory chapter to this collection, the editors point out that, until recently, most Anglophone Spinoza scholarship has been focused on the metaphysics and epistemology of the Ethics. But according to Kisner and Youpa, Spinoza thought that metaphysics and epistemology were significant chiefly because they are required for understanding the more important part of his project—the ethical doctrine developed in the last three parts of the work. Ethica was so-titled because it is a book about ethics.In recent years, the scholarly community has begun to shift its attention to bring itself more in line with Spinoza's intentions—to focus more directly on his ethical views. The volume under review presents ... Read More

  • Leibniz et Bayle: Confrontation et dialogue ed. by Christian Leduc, Paul
           Rateau, and Jean-Luc Solère (review)
    • Abstract: Central to this volume are two philosophical powerhouses of the early modern period: Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Pierre Bayle. Born in, respectively, 1646 and 1647, both made for an astonishing career in a variety of scholarly disciplines and reached, if not equal, then certainly comparable fame in the course of their lives. Nowadays, Bayle's reputation is eclipsed by that of Leibniz, who is the focus of yearly conferences and libraries of scholarship, while Bayle had to await the later twentieth century to be rediscovered. He has since been at the center of a quickly expanding body of scholarship, which continues to be sharply divided over the vexed question how to interpret his religious stance.This imbalance ...

  • Naturalism and Realism in Kant's Ethics by Frederick Rauscher (review)
    • Abstract: Making sense of how intelligible notions in Kant's moral philosophy make a place for themselves in the sensible, natural world is perhaps one of the greatest challenges to a Kantian moral philosopher. In this book, Rauscher takes on that question with great aplomb, by looking carefully at an impressive array of Kant's texts, and assessing the extent to which one can say Kant is a realist, or naturalist. Rauscher's intelligent and creative conclusion, in his words, is as follows:I have identified a Kantian transcendental moral idealism that is also an empirical realism, thus dissolving some of the realist/constructivist disagreement. I show, however, that Kant is himself hesitant to endorse this transcendental ... Read More

  • Sittliches Bewusstsein und kategorischer Imperativ in Kants 'Grundlegung':
           Ein Kommentar zum dritten Abschnitt by Heiko Puls (review)
    • Abstract: The third section of Kant's Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals is arguably one of the most challenging and obscure texts in the history of ethics. Until recently, it has also received comparatively little scholarly attention. Heiko Puls's line-by-line commentary is thus a welcome, and timely, addition to a growing wave of interest in this important work.The difficulty of Groundwork 3 arises largely because Kant is not entirely clear what he wants to accomplish by the end of the text. Some evidence suggests that he holds the ambitious goal of establishing the moral law's necessity as a principle of deliberation for all rational beings. Yet other evidence suggests he holds the more modest goal of establishing ... Read More

  • Scottish Philosophy in the Eighteenth Century. Vol. 1: Morals, Politics,
           Art, Religion ed. by Aaron Garrett, and James A. Harris (review)
    • Abstract: Together with Scottish Philosophy in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries, edited by Gordon Graham, this volume inaugurates the series A History of Scottish Philosophy, published by Oxford University Press under Graham's general editorship. A collection of "collaborative studies by expert authors," the series is projected to "provide a comprehensive account of the Scottish philosophical tradition" (ii). In their introduction to this particular volume, however, editors Aaron Garrett and James A. Harris propose a more modest purpose. "It will be plain to the reader," they acknowledge, "that we are not presenting here a comprehensive account of the philosophy of eighteenth-century Scotland" (13). Leaving psychology ... Read More

  • Sellars and His Legacy ed. by James R. O'Shea (review)
    • Abstract: Wilfred Sellars's deeply original and systematic thought continues to inspire into the twenty-first century. Part of the explanation must be that Sellars's struggle to integrate a Kantian-Wittgensteinian normative view of meaning and intentionality with a naturalistic outlook remains at the forefront of philosophical inquiry. To acknowledge the deep impact that Sellars has had on their work, a list of prominent, contemporary philosophers honor Sellars's legacy in a volume craftily edited by James R. O'Shea with a superb introduction. Like Sellars's own work, the contributions are distributed across a wide range of topics from, roughly, philosophy of perception (John McDowell, David Rosenthal), philosophy of ... Read More
