  • Imagination in the Theology of Aristotle
    • Abstract: philosophers of the islamic world have made extremely important contributions to understanding the imagination. Aristotle's account of phantasia in the De anima (III.3) is, of course, at the heart of much of Islamic philosophical work on the imagination. Furthermore, certain elements of Islamic religious belief were crucial in shaping Islamic philosophers' interest in the imagination (for example, imagination is invoked by various Islamic philosophers in their accounts of prophetism). However, in addition to these two obvious sources for Islamic philosophical thought concerning the imagination, there is an important Neoplatonic source in the 'Arabic Plotinus,' above all in the pseudonymous Theology of Aristotle.1 ...

  • The Priority of Natures against The Identity of Indiscernibles: Alexander
           of Aphrodisias, Yaḥyā b. 'Adī, and Avicenna on Genus as Matter
    • Abstract: A central question in the history of metaphysics concerns the ontological status of such notions as 'redness,' 'humanity,' or 'animality,' which one calls 'universals.' Since one uses these notions to describe objects in the real world, it may seem intuitive that they exist in extramental reality: one says that universals are 'real' (hence, 'realism'). Famously, though, several problems arise from this view. A central problem known both to medieval and contemporary scholars goes as follows: I look at a red rose and recognize that there is 'redness' in it. Then, I look at a red apple and recognize that there is 'redness' in it, too. Does this mean that one and the same 'redness' appears in both the rose and the ... Read More

  • Cartesian Holenmerism and Its Discontents: Or, on the "Dislocated"
           Relationship of Descartes's God to the Material World
    • Abstract: coined by henry more in the late seventeenth century, 'holenmerism' (or 'holenmerianism') is the doctrine that immaterial entities, such as God, angels, and souls, are situated in the material world but lack the spatial extension exhibited by material bodies. Whereas the standard (non-atomist) natural philosophy of the late medieval and early modern period held that an extended material body could be divided, either in thought or in reality, a holenmerically-conceived immaterial being, in contrast, cannot be divided because the whole is contained in each part. Henry More accepted holenmerism at the time of his correspondence with Descartes, arguing that God is "whole everywhere, and his whole essence is present in ... Read More

  • Du Châtelet on Freedom, Self-Motion, and Moral Necessity
    • Abstract: in 1737, voltaire sent a short piece titled "On Freedom" to Frederick of Prussia, claiming that it was his own work.1 The 19-page-long essay puts forward an intriguing theory of freedom. It discusses, among other things, the compatibility of divine foreknowledge with human freedom, the determination of actions by the agents' perceptions of the good, the relation between will and judgment, the difference between divine and human freedom, and the difference between the freedom of adults and that of children. Because "On Freedom" overlaps in certain ways with chapter VII of Voltaire's 1734 Treatise of Metaphysics, scholars used to treat it as a revision of, or companion piece to, that chapter.Yet, historians have now ...

  • Kant and the Primacy of Judgment before the First Critique
    • Abstract: many scholars claim that kant thought judgments are explanatorily prior to concepts. There is, however, extensive disagreement over the nature and extent of Kant's commitment to this view. This, in turn, affects assessments of what some say is Kant's most important contribution to the philosophy of mind.Competing interpretations of Kant's commitment to the primacy of judgment offer competing explanations for its significance. On one reading, the primacy of judgment is a semantic claim. Judgments are prior to concepts in the semantic order of explanation, such that conceptual content originates in the propositional contents expressed in acts of judgment. This view departs radically from traditional, semantically ... Read More

  • Shattering Presence: Being as Change, Time as the Sudden Instant in
           Heidegger's 1930–31 Seminar on Plato's Parmenides
    • Abstract: a central thesis of martin heidegger's first reading of a Platonic dialogue, the 1924/25 course on the Sophist, was that, "for the Greeks, being means precisely to be present, to be in the present [Anwesend-sein, Gegenwärtig-sein]."1 Heidegger saw this Greek interpretation of being as leading to Plato's specific interpretation of being as eidos or idea. Heidegger makes this clear in the following passage from another Plato course, the 1931–32 course On the Essence of Truth: "'Idea' is the look [der Anblick] of what something offers itself as being. These looks [Anblicke] are that in which the individual thing presents itself as this or that, that in which it is present and presencing [präsent und anwesend]. ... Read More

    • Abstract: Rappe's book argues for a "contemplative" understanding of Socrates and proposes to distinguish between an "outer Socrates," the one who strives for definitions and denies being wise, and an "inner Socrates," who exemplifies a wisdom that consists in self-investigation. The introduction, "Socratic Ignorance and Platonic Knowledge," presents Socrates as being part of the western "esoteric tradition"—as Rappe calls it—in so far as he stands for an initiation to philosophy that is in essence self-knowledge. According to Rappe, this esoteric tradition is not to be confused with dogmatic or ironic esotericism (as in, respectively, the Tübingen school's and Leo Strauss's readings), but stands for a "lived experience" ...

  • The Embodied Soul in Plato's Later Thought by Chad Jorgensen (review)
    • Abstract: Binaries are bad: false, distorting, hierarchical—or worse. This postmodern axiom has been widely accepted in scholarship and culture, and Plato is frequently blamed for promulgating some of the most enduring binaries of thought: being and becoming, truth and illusion, and, not least, body and soul. In this book, Chad Jorgensen argues for a more integrated picture of body and soul in Plato's later dialogues than Neoplatonism has left us, especially via the doctrine of separation as seen in Phaedo. Focusing especially on the first books of Republic, on Timaeus, and on Philebus, he emphasizes the "equilibrium" or "harmonious mixture" of the parts of soul in its interrelationship with the body.The first half of the ...

  • The Teleology of Action in Plato's Republic by Andrew Payne (review)
    • Abstract: Payne's commentary on Republic I–VII is not advanced as a sustained argument for the new type of teleology he finds there but is structured by themes in the text. It engages with selected previous scholarship on the Republic and is written with care and deliberation.Payne begins with an overview of the types of teleology, or end-directed action, found in Plato's corpus, but does not address contemporary philosophy of action. Payne's own "functional teleology of action" accounts for how agents act for the sake of ends of which they are unaware, as when mathematical study is directed to the Form of the Good (12). Chapter 2 explains this theory using the Symposium's Ascent passage.Payne devotes the next two chapters ... Read More

  • Evil in Aristotle by Pavlos Kontos (review)
    • Abstract: This is the first volume devoted to Aristotle's thoughts on evil or badness (to kakon). The work calls attention to several relatively neglected areas of scholarship, and the contributions give any reader grounds for thinking that Aristotle has thoughts about to kakon that are sophisticated and worthy of deep philosophical engagement.The volume is divided into three parts: metaphysics and biology in the first, practical philosophy in the second, and the "presence of Aristotle in post-Aristotelian philosophy" in the third (189). The topics vary widely—deformed animal kinds, the worst constitutions, the subhuman vice of brutishness, the misfortunes of the virtuous etc.—but the volume presents no clear philosophical ...

  • The Aporetic Tradition in Ancient Philosophy ed. by George Karamanolis and
           Vasilis Politis (review)
    • Abstract: This original collection of essays, arising from a conference in Dublin in 2014, explores the concept of aporia in ancient Greek philosophy. As the authors demonstrate, the concept of aporia has a surprisingly prominent role to play throughout the 1,000-year long ongoing conversation that the extant records reveal. Indeed, the Stoics and Epicureans seem to be outliers among the ancient philosophers in having no reliance on aporiai. The authors and the titles of their papers are: John Palmer, "Contradiction and Aporia in Early Greek Philosophy"; Jan Szaif, "Socrates and the Benefits of Puzzlement"; Vasilis Politis, "Aporia and Sceptical Argument in Plato's Early Dialogues"; Verity Harte, "Aporia in Plato's ...

  • Modern Views of Medieval Logic ed. by Christoph Kann et al. (review)
    • Abstract: An awareness of the wide scope of medieval logic and the role it played in university education at all levels, together with the way it was used in writings on both science and theology, is crucial for the historian of medieval thought. The growth of this awareness since the mid-twentieth century is shown by the ongoing expansion of editorial work, together with the discussion of the logic actually found in such prominent authors as Aquinas and Scotus. It has gone hand in hand with the use of developments in modern logic. First came the realization that medieval logic extended beyond basic Aristotelian syllogistic, and could be related to modern developments in propositional and quantificational logic in ... Read More

  • Reconceiving Spinoza by Samuel Newlands (review)
    • Abstract: In 1969, Edwin Curley published his Spinoza's Metaphysics: An Essay in Interpretation. It was a groundbreaking book in which Curley offers a bold and original account of Spinoza's metaphysical theses. In his highly unorthodox but hugely influential reading, he tries to mitigate some of the ontological oddity of Spinoza's claims that "whatever is, is in God," that "from God infinite things follow in infinite ways," and that mind and body are "one and the same thing," by giving them a strictly causal reading. For subsequent scholars, whether they agreed with Curley or not, there was no avoiding his interpretation.Samuel Newlands seeks likewise to transform our reading of Spinoza in an unconventional—and, as he ...

  • Dans la Chambre Obscure de l'Esprit: John Locke et l'Invention du Mind by
           Philippe Hamou (review)
    • Abstract: Philippe Hamou claims that Locke played a decisive but underappreciated role in inventing the current notion of mind, and in setting the agenda for contemporary philosophy of mind (16). These provocative theses, even when qualified as Hamou does, strike me as strained. It is hard, for example, to imagine the convoluted route by which one might identify Locke's secondary qualities with contemporary qualia, as Hamou does (17); surely, there must be qualia associated with primary qualities too.However, for most of his book, Hamou is concerned to advance his own intriguing interpretation of Locke himself, rather than engaging with contemporary philosophy of mind. The first and larger half of the book deals with Locke's ... Read More

  • The Well-Ordered Universe: The Philosophy of Margaret Cavendish by Deborah
           A. Boyle (review)
    • Abstract: Deborah Boyle's book is a splendid addition to the literature on the philosophy of Margaret Cavendish (1623–73). It provides an overview of Cavendish's philosophical work, from her panpsychist materialism, through her views about human motivation and general political philosophy, to views about gender, health, and humans' relation to the rest of the natural world. Boyle emphasizes themes of order and regularity, but does not argue that there is a strong systematic connection between Cavendish's views. Indeed, she makes a point of noting the different ways in which the themes of order and regularity work in different areas of Cavendish's philosophy (7–8).The early chapters consider Cavendish's natural philosophy. ...

  • Hume's Science of Human Nature: Scientific Realism, Reason, and
           Substantial Explanation by David Landy (review)
    • Abstract: In his bold and excellent book on Hume's scientific methodology, David Landy positions himself between the "Deductive-Nomological" reading, which explains particular phenomena in terms of empirical regularities, and the "New Hume" position, which considers empirical regularities to be the explananda and unknowable essences the explanans. Landy sides with the New Humeans, except that for him the essences, or "theoretical posits," are knowable. These essences become knowable, despite their being in principle unobservable, through the tool of "perceptible models." Landy argues that "theoretical posits are only possible via the deployment of a perceptible model," and he explains that perceptual models allow us to ... Read More

  • Love's Enlightenment. Rethinking Charity in Modernity by Ryan Hanley
           (review)
    • Abstract: What place should love of others occupy in moral and political philosophy' As Ryan Patrick Hanley explains in this impressive study, many contemporary philosophers have recently tried to revive a moral psychology of love to remedy the egocentrism and narcissism that often seem to characterize modern life. But is love the answer to the problems we face today and how much can we expect of it' To try to answer these questions, Hanley turns to the ideas of four eighteenth-century philosophers for illumination: David Hume on humanity, Jean-Jacques Rousseau on pity, Adam Smith on sympathy, and Immanuel Kant on love.All four philosophers, Hanley argues, helped to shape a distinctively modern understanding of love. ...

  • Kant's Political Legacy: Human Rights, Peace, Progress by Luigi Caranti
           (review)
    • Abstract: In all three areas of Kant's political philosophy that Luigi Caranti covers, he offers compelling and persuasive accounts that sharpen our understanding of Kant and show the value of close study of historical texts for today's philosophy. Recent political philosophy inspired by Kant often draws from his more general moral writings, as exemplified by Rawls's use of the categorical imperative as a procedure. Others, however, cite Kant's works more directly concerned with political philosophy. Caranti assesses these readings in two areas—the foundations for human rights and the conditions for international peace—and adds an assessment of Kant on progress toward a just political order.The first two topics receive ...

  • Independence of Nature in Fichte's Ethics by Michelle Kosch (review)
    • Abstract: Recent literature on J. G. Fichte's ethical philosophy has tended to focus on a handful of interpretive issues while simultaneously emphasizing his under-appreciated relevance to contemporary moral theory. In this regard, Kosch's book on Fichte's ethics is similar to other recent publications. In almost every other way, however, it is unique. Kosch uses her talent for clear argumentation to propose several theses that have little precedent in Fichte scholarship.Her book's goal is two-fold: first, to fill a "yawning gap" in Fichte scholarship by addressing aspects of Fichte's ethical system that have been misinterpreted or overlooked, and second, to present Fichte's ethical work to philosophers "who would be ...

  • Hegel and Right. A Study of the Philosophy of Right by Philip J. Kain
           (review)
    • Abstract: There are many studies of Hegel's Philosophy of Right. Philip Kain does not break new ground in Hegel and Right. Nor does he deal with the German scholarship that did, by posing the possibility of an esoteric Hegel belying the exoteric author caving to censorship pressure. Still, he has provided us a worthwhile book that touches on some controversial issues. Kain professes to be a Marxian and social democrat who opposes capital punishment and supports same-sex marriage and, perhaps not coincidentally, his Hegel is open to at least the latter three positions. Some scholars of Hegel may be dismayed that there is little reference to Hegel's Logic, though they should appreciate Kain emphasizing how the Absolute is the ... Read More

  • On the Genealogy of Universals: The Metaphysical Origins of Analytic
           Philosophy by Fraser MacBride (review)
    • Abstract: In the preface to this excellent book, Fraser MacBride says he decided to write it because he had "become convinced that there is far more to find out and far more to learn from the history of early analytic philosophy" (vii). He is right; the history of early analytic philosophy holds insights for us today, and most of them lie outside of what MacBride calls our "cartoon histories." In punchy prose, he mines gems from what one of his heroes, Frank Ramsey, called "that great muddle the theory of universals."The subtitle of the book carries considerable weight. This is not just a much-needed genealogy of the theory of universals and particulars. It is a re-think of the beginnings of analytic philosophy. The standard ... Read More
