  • Richard A. "Red" Watson, 1930–2019
    • Abstract: On September 18, 2019, the Cartesian scholar Richard A. Watson, known to his family, friends, and colleagues as "Red," passed away at the age of 88.watson was born in 1930 in new market, Iowa, where he met his wife Patty Jo in middle school. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Iowa, studying under Richard H. Popkin. After a brief stint teaching at the University of Michigan, Watson spent most of his career at Washington University in St. Louis, where Popkin also joined the faculty. Upon his retirement, Red moved to Missoula, Montana, but the final years of his life were spent in Arlington, Massachusetts.Red was a generation's leader in scholarship on early modern philosophy. He was among ... Read More

  • Conviction, Priority, and Rationalism in Aristotle's Epistemology
    • Abstract: aristotle is often portrayed as a certain sort of rational foundationalist, who thinks that all our scientific understanding (ἐπιστήμη) is justified on the basis of first principles, and that these first principles are themselves justified only by some brute, non-inferential form of rational intuition (νοῦς). It is typically admitted that experience and observation play an important role for Aristotle, and are in some way responsible for our coming to develop the rational intuition in question. But on the rationalist reading, only our rational intuition is epistemically relevant—experience and observation might be good ways to bring about or cause the right sort of intuition, but they cannot justify our grasp of ...

  • Comprehension, Demonstration, and Accuracy in Aristotle
    • Abstract: according to aristotle's posterior analytics (hereafter, An. Post.), scientific expertise is composed of two different cognitive dispositions. Some propositions in the domain can be scientifically explained, which means that they are known by "demonstration" (ἀπόδειξις), a deductive argument in which the premises are explanatory of the conclusion. Thus, the kind of cognition that apprehends those propositions is called "demonstrative knowledge" (ἐπιστήμη ἀποδεικτική).1 However, not all propositions in a scientific domain are demonstrable. Demonstrations are ultimately based on indemonstrable principles, whose knowledge is called "comprehension" (νοῦς).2 If the knowledge of all scientific propositions were ... Read More

  • Physical Action, Species, and Matter: The Debate between Roger Bacon and
           Peter John Olivi
    • Abstract: did roger bacon and peter john olivi ever meet' We suggest a positive answer to this question. After he became a Franciscan in 1257, Roger Bacon (1214/12– 1292) spent ten years at the Franciscan Paris convent. In those years he wrote the De multiplicatione specierum (completed before 1266)—his most thought-out piece—the Opus majus, Opus minus, and Opus tertium, which he completed by early 1268. It is not clear whether Bacon returned to England after 1268, or remained in Paris until 1280.1 Peter John Olivi (ca. 1248–1298) wrote the Summa questions (henceforth Summa II) in several phases.2 According to Sylvain Piron's chronology, Olivi's questions on Physics (QQ.23–31) should be dated before 1270, and his theory of ...

  • "All in Their Nature Good": Descartes on the Passions of the Soul
    • Abstract: near the end of the passions of the soul (henceforth, Passions), Descartes claims that the passions of the soul (henceforth, 'passions') "are all in their nature good [elles sont toutes bonnes de leur nature]" (AT XI.485/Passions, 132).1 This claim is surprising because Descartes elsewhere characterizes the passions in less than sanguine terms: they may be responsible for "all the evils and all the errors of life" (AT IV.284/CSMK 263);[they] almost always make both the goods and the evils they represent appear much greater and more important than they are, so that they incite us to seek the former and flee the latter with more ardor and more anxiety than is suitable;(AT XI.431/ Passions, 93)and when we feel ...

  • Mary Shepherd on Mind, Soul, and Self
    • Abstract: the philosophical writings ofx Lady Mary Shepherd (1777–1847) were apparently well regarded in her own time, but dropped out of view in the mid-nineteenth century.1 Some historians of philosophy have recently begun attending to the distinctive arguments in Shepherd's two books, but the secondary literature that exists so far has largely focused on her critiques of Hume and Berkeley. However, many other themes and arguments in Shepherd's writings have not yet been explored. This paper takes up one such issue, what Shepherd means by 'mind,' 'soul,' and 'self.' Shepherd held the unusual view that the mind is an enduring capacity that causes (whether on its own or in conjunction with other partial causes, such as ... Read More

    • Abstract: in a nachlass fragment of 1888, Nietzsche refers to psychology as "Affektenlehre"—the doctrine or theory of the affects (NF 1888: 13 [2]).1 Given his contention elsewhere that psychology represents the "path to the fundamental problems" (BGE 23), it should come as no surprise that Nietzsche makes reference to affects in numerous prominent passages, and throughout some of his most important works.2 Yet, as Peter Poellner has claimed, one might "feel that not much is gained by [Nietzsche's] assertions in the absence of a detailed account of what 'affects' are supposed to be" ("Affect, Value, and Objectivity," 229). Literature on the topic has focused predominantly on the roles ascribed to affects in his moral ... Read More

  • Schlick and Wittgenstein: The Theory of Affirmations Revisited
    • Abstract: the ready availability of wittgenstein's previously unpublished writings from his so-called middle period of 1929 to 1936 has greatly enriched our understanding of the development of his thought. For obvious reasons, however, it has had little effect on the interpretation of Wittgenstein's contemporaries. At the time, few, even amongst those who had by then taken note of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, were apprised of the new avenues Wittgenstein's thought had begun to take. One such rare exception was Moritz Schlick, the nominal head of the Vienna Circle and an eminent philosopher of science (the first to publish knowledgeably about Einstein's theories of relativity). Even before Wittgenstein's return to ... Read More

  • Aristotle's Theory of Bodies by Christian Pfeiffer (review)
    • Abstract: Aristotle uses 'body' to describe the matter of animals, the elements and what they compose, as well as magnitudes extended in three-dimensions. These last bodies belong to the category of quantity, alongside surfaces and lines. It is this notion of body that interests Christian Pfeiffer, who presents Aristotle's various discussions of it as one exhaustive theory of body. According to this theory, magnitudes are form-matter composites, where boundaries are forms and extensions are matter. The boundary of a body is its particular shape and its extension is its volume. It follows that Socrates destroys his body and gains another by standing up (since the shape of the sitting and standing bodies, and thus the bodies ... Read More

  • The Elements of Avicenna's Physics: Greek Sources and Arabic Innovations
           by Andreas Lammer (review)
    • Abstract: In this timely and outstanding contribution, Andreas Lammer tackles central concepts and problems in Avicenna's Physics of the Healing. The analysis provides a wide-ranging but cohesive study of Avicenna's approach and ideas. The philological and philosophical analysis of the historical context of Avicenna's arguments pays dividends. Avicenna's—often radical—reworking of Aristotle's approach in the Physics critically engages a long tradition of Peripatetic and Neoplatonic philosophy in Greek and Arabic. Lammer's contribution, based on his doctoral dissertation, lays fertile ground for future work. Given the limitations of this review, I focus in the following on the results and fruitful questions raised by chapters ... Read More

  • The Problem of Universals from Boethius to John of Salisbury by Roberto
           Pinzani (review)
    • Abstract: Roberto Pinzani has written a closely-argued, highly original, valuable but difficult book. The Problem of Universals, indeed, is—and has been for nearly two centuries—the most frequently treated topic in medieval philosophy, and solutions to it proposed by two of the philosophers discussed here, Boethius and Abelard, have been examined countless times. But no one has before tried to cover the whole period, from circa 500 to circa 1150, looking in detail at a whole variety of writers. Moreover, what Pinzani has to say even about Boethius and Abelard is new.After a chapter setting out the problem, as he understands it, and looking especially at predication in Aristotle, Pinzani goes on to Boethius and then the ...

  • Jewish Philosophy in the Middle Ages: Science, Rationalism, and Religion
           by Tamar M. Rudavsky (review)
    • Abstract: Tamar Rudavsky's erudite survey of Jewish philosophy during the Middle Ages is the latest compendium of a wide array of thinkers who profoundly constructed bridges between the two worlds of Jewish beliefs informed by the Hebrew Bible and its rabbinic overlay at one end, and of science and philosophy dominated by Aristotelian physics and metaphysics at the other. Jewish philosophers, like their Islamic and Christian counterparts, tirelessly exerted themselves to reconcile the two into a unified system. The very title of Maimonides's seminal Guide of the Perplexed reflects his attempt to resolve the angst of his intellectually sophisticated coreligionists who faced an irreconcilable either/or choice between the ...

  • Hobbes on Politics and Religion ed. by Laurens van Apeldoorn and Robin
           Douglass (review)
    • Abstract: It is refreshing to read fifteen erudite articles written by seasoned experts and promising young scholars who engage the wide-ranging question of the intersection of religion and politics in Hobbes's works. The free standing arguments are not framed by Hobbes's alleged religious (in)sincerity, or by a priori conceptions of natural law, or some modernization thesis. This work is therefore a must-read for scholars yearning to explore Hobbes's religious politics in new ways. I hope it inspires more volumes, possibly organized around narrower religious topics (I will suggest two).Johan Olsthoorn argues that Hobbes's theory of representation takes him beyond Erastianism to the stronger claim of church-state identity ...

  • Hobbes and the Two Faces of Ethics by Arash Abizadeh (review)
    • Abstract: Arash Abizadeh's main thesis is that Hobbes severed juridical obligation—a covenant-created practice of second-personal accountability—from allegedly prudential natural law, marking a "watershed" separation of the right from the good. Daniel Eggers ("Liberty and Contractual Obligation in Hobbes," Hobbes Studies 22 [2009]: 70–103), Mark Peacock ("Obligation and Advantage in Hobbes' Leviathan," Canadian Journal of Philosophy 40 [2010]: 433–458), and David D. Raphael ("Hobbes on Justice," in Perspectives on Hobbes, edited by G. A. J. Rogers and Alan Ryan, Oxford, 1988, 153–70) fruitfully explored that thesis. The proposed independence is doubtful because natural law both underwrites and constrains covenant: "a ... Read More

  • L'Empreinte cartésienne: L'interaction psychophysique, débats classiques
           et contemporains by Sandrine Roux (review)
    • Abstract: Sandrine Roux's L'Empreinte cartésienne addresses what she describes as one of the "persistent problems" in philosophy, namely, the mind-body problem raised by Descartes's substance dualism (17). Her book carefully lays out the various puzzles, both real and perceived, raised by Descartes's theory of humans as a mind-body union. She distinguishes clearly between the way these problems are understood by Descartes, and the way they were seen by some of his seventeenth-century followers, especially the occasionalists, Louis de La Forge, Géraud de Cordemoy, and Malebranche. And she tries to orient the Cartesian mind-body problem with respect to theories in contemporary philosophy of mind.The first two parts are ... Read More

  • La Vision politique de Malebranche by Raffaele Carbone (review)

Si l'on espère une mise au jour—qui, de fait, serait novatrice—d'une pensée précise, développée et systématique de Malebranche sur les thèmes cardinaux de la philosophie politique classique (théorie du souverain, des types de gouvernement, contractualisme, jusnaturalisme, etc.), on sera déçu: ce livre ne contient rien de tel, sinon, dans une certaine mesure, en sa troisième partie. Si l'on compte lire une monographie informée offrant une synthèse sur des thèmes centraux du malebranchisme en relation avec la sphère du politique prise en un sens large (nature des ... Read More

  • Aesthetic Reason and Imaginative Freedom: Friedrich Schiller and
           Philosophy ed. by María del Rosario Acosta López and Jeffrey L. Powell
           (review)
    • Abstract: In the past, Schiller has often been underestimated as a philosopher in his own right. Fortunately, this has been changing, beginning with the bicentennial commemoration of his death in 2005, which has since then produced a fair number of volumes, mostly in French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Unfortunately, Frederick Beiser's 2005 Schiller the Philosopher: A Re-Examination, one of the still rare book-length treatments by a single author, has failed to lead to a similar "new wave" in the English-speaking world (3). Thus, it is heartening to have here a volume of essays focusing on his philosophical writings and bringing together titans of the fields of philosophical Schiller-studies, German early romantic ...

  • Kant and His German Contemporaries, Volume II: Aesthetics, History,

    • Abstract: In continuity with the first volume of the series, edited by Corey W. Dyck and Falk Wunderlich, whose focus was on "Logic, Mind, Epistemology, Science and Ethics," this collection of essays carries on an impressive project in the history of thought and ideas that, due to its breadth and depth of analysis, can be compared to Dieter Henrich's monumental Konstellationen. Probleme und Debatten am Ursprung der idealistischen Philosophie (1789–1795) (Stuttgart: Klett-Cotta, 1991). Yet, while the latter's program aimed at tracing the personal and intellectual relations between the various figures of German idealism, here the goal is to bring out of the shadows the German panorama of the second half of the eighteenth ...

  • Kant on the Sources of Metaphysics: The Dialectic of Pure Reason by Marcus
           Willaschek (review)
    • Abstract: This book is about the Transcendental Dialectic in Kant's Critique of Pure Reason (CPR). Unlike most other treatments of this subject matter, it does not focus on Kant's criticisms of metaphysical arguments. Rather, it considers Kant's account of why "metaphysical speculation about the unconditioned"—for instance, about objects like God or the entire world—"arises naturally and inevitably out of the very structure of human reason" (8).Willaschek posits "a three-part template underlying" Kant's account of how we are led to make unwarranted metaphysical judgments: "(1) a transition from the logical to the real or transcendental use of reason and its ideas and principles, (2) the tendency to misuse the latter by ...

  • Metaphysics of Freedom' Kant's Concept of Cosmological Freedom in
           Historical and Systematic Perspective ed. by Christian Krijnen (review)
    • Abstract: This volume of essays, written in English and German, focuses primarily on Kant's concept of transcendental freedom. The first Critique famously introduces this concept of freedom in the third antinomy, where Kant examines the apparent tension between the world's need for an uncaused cause and the world's thorough causal determination. Thus, Kant's concept of transcendental freedom is, as this volume emphasizes, a cosmological conception of freedom. Although the volume claims to consider Kant's conception of cosmological freedom from both historical and systematic perspectives, the bulk of the essays focus more heavily on historical matters. Most of the essays in the volume compare and contrast Kant's conception of ... Read More

  • Another Mind-Body Problem: A History of Racial Non-Being by John Harfouch
           (review)
    • Abstract: Despite ideals of philosophical objectivity, who speaks is as important as what is said, and those who fall outside the Eurocentric male norm often are not heard or invited to participate in theorizing. New work chronicling and challenging the creation of white supremacist ideology in philosophy is needed greatly. In this important book, Another Mind-Body Problem: A History of Racial Non-Being, John Harfouch reveals the hermeneutical injustice that obscures how professional philosophers understand the mind-body problem today and how the terms of that problem were created in the early modern period. Unlike the puzzle of causal relations between the mind and body canonized by white (mainly male) philosophers ... Read More

  • Peirce on Realism and Idealism by Robert Lane (review)
    • Abstract: Traditionally considered opposing views, realism and idealism were both endorsed by Charles Peirce, founder of pragmatism. Robert Lane proposes to defend the underlying consistency of Peirce's views on these two issues by tracing their evolution and the coextensive effect on the rest of his innovative philosophy. This is no easy task, as anyone who has attempted to study Peirce's vast oeuvre can confirm. Among the many challenges to this undertaking is the fact that much of Peirce's thought, which covers the whole gamut of philosophical topics, is contained in unpublished manuscripts. Lane includes the latter, along with Peirce's better-known writings, in this clearly-argued, thoroughly-researched, and most ... Read More

  • Augustine and Wittgenstein ed. by John Doody, Alexander E. Eodice, and Kim
           Paffenroth (review)
    • Abstract: Forty years ago in this journal, Herbert Spiegelberg examined Wittgenstein's direct references to Augustine in the works that were available to the public at that time ("Augustine in Wittgenstein: A Case Study in Philosophical Stimulation." Journal of the History of Philosophy 17 [1979], 318–27). Although there are many allusions to Augustine in the portions of the Nachlass to which Spiegelberg did not have access, Wittgenstein read only the Confessions and his interest lay in a small set of topics for which certain sentences from Augustine served him as repeated proof texts. Given these facts and given how fundamentally Wittgenstein disagreed with Augustine about the nature and purpose of philosophy, it is ... Read More
