  • On the Separability and Inseparability of the Stoic Principles
    • Abstract: the ancient greek stoics claim that there are two principles (ἀρχαί): the active principle and the passive principle.1 The sources for Stoicism often call the active principle ‘God,’ and the passive principle ‘matter.’ These two entities play an important role in Stoic physics. In their analysis of the natural world, the Stoics invoke God and matter at a basic level. Thus, a full understanding of Stoic physics requires a full understanding of the principles.In this paper, I will examine the relations that the principles bear to each other and to the natural world. This discussion also lays the groundwork for determining the nature of the principles—their ontological status within Stoic physics and their intrinsic ... Read More

  • Augustine’s Development on Testimonial Knowledge
    • Abstract: “eyes are surer witnesses than ears,” says Heraclitus, deploying the term ‘witnesses’ metaphorically to steer us toward what we can see for ourselves, and away from depending literally on the witness of others.1 Much ancient epistemology leans the same way. The tendency from pre-Socratic times on is to distinguish between doxa (opinion) and epistêmê (knowledge), and to say that ordinary human testimony on its own can give us no more than doxa.2 Some ancient philosophers have what we might call ‘rationalist’ reasons for not recognizing testimonially based knowledge: for them knowledge requires intellectual insight into some truth.3 Others have ‘empiricist’ reasons: for them, one’s knowledge must ultimately trace ...

  • Grotius on Property and the Right of Necessity
    • Abstract: i would hazard to guess that nearly everyone would agree that(N1) In situations of peril, it is permissible to use another’s property without her permission if that is the only way to save oneself from serious harm.1But that(N2) If one damages or consumes that property, one ought to compensate its owner.It turns out, however, that the conjunction of N1 and N2 is surprisingly difficult to justify. That is because if you accept N1, you are also likely to accept(N3) A property owner would wrong an imperiled trespasser if the owner prevented her from using his property if that were the only way she could save herself from serious harm.N3 implies that the permission granted in N1 issues from a right. This generates a ... Read More

  • Quatenus and Spinoza’s Monism
    • Abstract: spinoza holds that god is the only substance and that ordinary things are modes of that substance. Precisely what this entails as a metaphysical thesis is a matter of contention, but it has been criticized on logical grounds. Briefly, the criticism is as follows. Assuming that only a substance can be a proper subject of predication, it follows from Spinoza’s thesis that all predications correctly made of ordinary things must be properly made of God.1 This leads to contradiction. As some read him, Spinoza’s way out is to propose that various claims are true of God, not simpliciter, but only “insofar as” (quatenus) he is something specific.2 It is then assumed that what holds of God insofar as he is A need not hold ...

  • The Beauty of Science without the Science of Beauty: Kant and the
           Rationalists on the Aesthetics of Cognition
    • Abstract: it is common to praise the beauty of theories, the elegance of proofs, and the pleasing simplicity of explanations. We may admire, for example, the beauty of Einstein’s theory of general relativity, the simplicity of Darwin’s idea of natural selection, and the elegance of a geometrical proof of Pythagoras’s theorem. Aesthetic judgments such as these have much currency among scientists, and they are employed in the search for knowledge more broadly. But while the use of aesthetic judgments in science is widespread, it is not uncontroversial.1 On one side, such judgments are often inspired by the Platonic vision that beauty and truth are ultimately one. As Henri Poincaré saw it, science is the “disinterested pursuit ... Read More

  • Beauty and Utility in Kant’s Aesthetics: The Origins of Adherent
           Beauty
    • Abstract: within western philosophy, there is a long and rich tradition of treating the beautiful and the good as closely related and mutually reinforcing.1 Different models of the relation have been proposed. An ‘identity’ model can be seen in Plato’s identification of the beautiful and the good in the Symposium and perhaps in the Greek notion of kalokagathia (i.e. beautiful-and-good).2 Yet, according to Plato’s Republic, the form of the good illuminates, and differs from, the forms of beauty and truth: “both knowledge and truth are beautiful things, but the good is other and more beautiful than they,”3 suggesting that beauty is a mode of the good. Likewise, according to Plotinus’s chronologically first treatise, “On ... Read More

  • Ryle, the Double Counting Problem, and the Logical Form of Category
           Mistakes
    • Abstract: in the opening chapter of The Concept of Mind, Gilbert Ryle coined the phrase ‘category mistake’ and then promptly accused the Cartesian dualist of committing one. The Concept of Mind is easily one of the most influential works of twentieth-century philosophy,1 and its opening chapter is a staple of philosophy of mind courses and anthologies.2 Even so, what Ryle thinks a category mistake is, and why he thinks the Cartesian commits one, is shrouded in mystery. Josh Parsons relates the following story.I once made the mistake of trying to teach Ryle. I set the usual selection from The Concept of Mind as a reading, and after skimming it, made up some study questions to put on the syllabus. These were “What is a ... Read More

  • Socrates and Alcibiades: Plato’s Drama of Political Ambition and
           Philosophy by Ariel Helfer (review)
    • Abstract: Helfer opens his book with a series of vigorous reflections that have the virtue of challenging some of the reader’s deeply seated beliefs concerning political emotions. While we moderns see political ambition mostly as a threat to the public good that needs to be checked, ancients, the author suggests, considered that passion in a positive light. Indeed, they regarded political ambition as the manifestation of a powerful desire to achieve noble deeds in the civic sphere, an aspiration they saw as a central feature of human nature. That Alcibiades presents us with the most spectacular example of a man animated by such a passion is uncontentious, no matter how controversial this historical person was. By studying ... Read More

  • Aristotle on Knowledge and Learning: The Posterior Analytics by David
           Bronstein (review)
    • Abstract: David Bronstein’s book tackles Aristotle’s account, as presented in the Posterior Analytics, of knowledge (epistēmē), or rather a privileged form of it, ‘scientific knowledge’ or ‘understanding.’ We know in this way by grasping arguments of a certain kind, demonstrations, for which reason Aristotle devotes much of his attention in the Posterior Analytics to demonstrative argument. The subject is as important as anything in Aristotle, and it presents challenges as difficult as any confronting his interpreters elsewhere, which Bronstein’s book tackles skillfully and to illuminating effect. The book is especially noteworthy for the high degree of systematic unity it attributes to the Posterior Analytics. The solutions ... Read More

  • Aristotelismo by Enrico Berti (review)
    • Abstract: At the beginning of his 1952 monograph on Aristotle, D. J. Allan wrote, “it is not the purpose of this work to trace the influence of Aristotle upon subsequent science and philosophy, an important and interesting subject which would require a volume to itself.” The volume Allan gave up writing has just been published by Enrico Berti. Aristotelismo does not aim at providing a history of Aristotelianism (i.e. of those philosophies explicitly or implicitly following Aristotle’s), as the title might suggest. Rather, it is a collection of some of the most relevant examples attesting to the influence of Aristotle’s thought on our philosophical and scientific tradition from early Peripatetics to contemporary ...

  • The Aristotelian Tradition: Aristotle’s Works on Logic and Metaphysics
           and Their Reception in the Middle Ages ed. by Börje Bydén, Christina
           Thomsen Thörnqvist (review)
    • Abstract: In today’s academia, scholars are compelled to be productive. The result is an overabundance of publications that often are formulaic follow-ups to the debates du jour. The essays included in this collection are a fortunate exception to this rule—they are original and make refreshingly bold claims. The articles are devoted to the reception of Aristotle’s logic and metaphysics in the Middle Ages and show the vitality of the cluster of scholars known as the “Copenhagen School of Medieval Philosophy.” Even though the school does not identify as “neo-scholastic” (14), many of its members accept the idea that scholastic interpretations are relevant to our understanding of Aristotle’s thought. Undoubtedly, this is a ... Read More

  • Justice as a Virtue: A Thomistic Perspective by Jean Porter (review)
    • Abstract: Jean Porter’s excellent study not only offers a clear and expansive picture of Aquinas on justice but also touches on nearly every other topic in Aquinas’s ethics. Of course, Aquinas himself thinks that no topic in philosophy or theology can be understood, or understood well, apart from its connection to multiple others, and Porter’s book is in this respect, as in so many others, deeply Thomistic. In the course of exploring justice—justice as a virtue, justice as a moral ideal, and the special authority carried by the precepts of justice—Porter also reveals Aquinas’s thought on practical reason, moral inconsistency, virtue, eudaimonism, and normativity.“Aquinas gets justice right,” Porter asserts (5). Unlike most ... Read More

  • The Arguments of Aquinas: A Philosophical View by J. J. MacIntosh (review)
    • Abstract: Aquinas never describes himself as a ‘philosopher.’ He typically uses that word when referring to such “pagans” as Aristotle. Yet he often presents what we can now view as purely philosophical arguments. And it is some of these with which MacIntosh is concerned in this fine new book, which is divided into three parts, as is Aquinas’s Summa Theologiae. MacIntosh has previously published two books on Robert Boyle (1627–1691), who features from time to time in the present volume.In part 1, “Natural Philosophy,” MacIntosh reports a number of things that Aquinas has to say about necessity and possibility, causality, time and motion, and time and infinity. Part 2, “Natural Theology,” deals with Aquinas under the headings ... Read More

  • The Virtue Ethics of Levi Gersonides by Alexander Green (review)
    • Abstract: The works of Gersonides (Levi ben Gerson, 1288–1344) encompass science, philosophy, and biblical exegesis. The majority of the philosophical writings are constituted by supercommentaries on Averroes’s commentaries on Aristotle’s works, whereas his magnum opus, The Wars of the Lord, encompasses all three genres. Since these works engage his preeminent predecessors, Maimonides and Averroes, and since Gersonides explains the motivation to composing the Wars as a concern for human flourishing, the absence of a supercommentary on the Nicomachean Ethics is striking.The Virtue Ethics of Levi Gersonides is a bold attempt to provide an account of Gersonides’s ethics as a significant departure from his preeminent ...

  • The First German Philosopher: The Mysticism of Jakob Böhme as Interpreted
           by Hegel by Cecilia Muratori (review)
    • Abstract: Cecilia Muratori’s book is a major contribution to scholarship on the Romantic Age and idealistic philosophy. Jakob Böhme is a thinker of great importance within the German tradition, but is so dense and difficult that he is very hard to study without proper and expert guidance. Muratori has exceeded expectations in her lucid, imaginative, and brilliant exposition of Böhme’s thought in relation to Hegel and, indeed, the modern age. Hegel not only regarded Böhme as a writer of philosophical genius, but also as the beginning of German philosophy. This book explains why. The priority here is no temporal accident. The designation is also a tribute to the proleptic power of the Silesian cobbler. Hegel’s attribution is ... Read More

  • Eighteenth-Century Dissent and Cambridge Platonism: Reconceiving the

    • Abstract: Plato and Platonism held a significant place in British intellectual inquiry in the eighteenth century. Louise Hickman enters this largely unexplored territory with a valuable study of select elements in the theological and political arguments of certain British divines. She is particularly concerned to expose the limitations of familiar and narrowly-rational arguments that in the eighteenth century supported natural religion and theology, and to bring to the fore a countervailing rational theology that discovers in and for the human mind the eternal and immutable truth that is divine.The principal figure in Hickman’s study is Richard Price, rational dissenting minister, friend of liberty and America, and author of ...

  • Wagering on an Ironic God: Pascal on Faith and Philosophy by Thomas S.
           Hibbs (review)
    • Abstract: Infini-rien—Blaise Pascal’s wager fragment (Pensées 418, translated by Krailsheimer)—is fraught with interpretative difficulties. Reconstruction of the text from the original manuscript is controversial. Interpretation of the reconstructed text is doubly controversial. Location of the text within the wider frame of the Pensées is problematic. Interpretation of the text within the wider frame of the Pensées is doubly problematic.The title of the work under review, which also serves as the title for the work’s major chapter, suggests that infini-rien is a central focus. The title of the first section of the major chapter, Rereading the Wager, does nothing to gainsay this suggestion. But the “rereading” that we are ... Read More

The first six chapters address topics mostly related to parts one and two of the Ethics. Don Garrett discusses the identity of the attributes. Warren Zev Harvey suggests that Maimonides’s critique of final causes can be considered as an important source for Spinoza’s treatment of the same topic in the appendix to part one. John Morrison argues that Spinoza’s treatment of the nature of the human mind entails a rejection of the indiscernibility of the identicals. Martin Lin contributes a new interpretation of ...

  • Toleration and Understanding in Locke by Nicholas Jolley (review)
    • Abstract: Jolley argues that paying close attention to Locke’s Epistola de Tolerentia, as well as the later letters on toleration occasioned by Jonas Proast’s response to the Epistola, reveals that “a different Locke emerges from the one who is familiar to us today; it is a Locke who is more single-mindedly devoted to the project of promoting the cause of religious toleration than has been realized” (5). Jolley argues that Locke is a more systematic thinker than we think, and that the theme that unites his three greatest works—Epistola, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, and Two Treatises—is a commitment to the cause of religious toleration (8). Jolley’s discussion proceeds through eight main chapters: one on the ... Read More

  • The Infidel and the Professor: David Hume, Adam Smith, and the Friendship

    • Abstract: The philosophical friendship between David Hume and Adam Smith spanned almost thirty years and influenced several of the greatest productions of the Scottish Enlightenment, but it has never before been the subject of a book-length study. Rasmussen’s accessible account of the friendship between Hume and Smith remedies this and tells an engaging story about these two “dearest” friends (4).Rasmussen’s story unfolds chronologically, with each chapter focusing largely on either Hume or Smith. The major events of their friendship are dutifully covered, including their respective journeys to France, and Hume’s controversial quarrel with Rousseau; but Rasmussen’s focus is on tracing their relationship and how that ...

  • Kant and the Laws of Nature ed. by Michela Massimi, Angela Breitenbach
           (review)
    • Abstract: This is a welcome collection of essays addressing Kant’s treatment of natural laws. Kant’s best-known discussion of natural laws is the Critique of Pure Reason’s second analogy, which argues that all alterations take place according to causal laws. But Kant’s overall treatment of natural laws extends far beyond the second analogy. For instance, the Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science aims to derive specific laws of motion. The appendix to the Critique of Pure Reason’s transcendental dialectic and the introductions to the Critique of the Power of Judgment examine the notion of a systematic order of particular laws. And the Critique of the Power of Judgment discusses the relationship between mechanical and ... Read More

    • Abstract: Terry Pinkard has been a leading figure within the revival of Hegelian philosophy over the last quarter century, together with Robert Pippin articulating an innovative and influential interpretation of Hegel as the rightful successor to Kant’s distinctly modern critique of “dogmatic metaphysics.” In Does History Make Sense', he attempts the challenging task of rescuing Hegel’s philosophy of history, drawing on his earlier account (in Hegel’s Naturalism: Mind, Nature, and the Final Ends of Life, 2012) of Hegel as a kind of “modified Aristotelian naturalist,” here sketched in chapter 1. Given that the picture of Hegel as an Aristotelian “conceptual realist” has been popular with critics of the post-Kantian ... Read More

  • Truth in Husserl, Heidegger, and the Frankfurt School: Critical Retrieval
           by Lambert Zuidervaart (review)
    • Abstract: In his new book, Lambert Zuidervaart argues that the concept of propositional truth remains one-dimensional and needs to be extended by and embedded in several versions of what the author calls “existential truth,” which he discusses in relation to phenomenology and critical theory. Zuidervaart focuses on key figures of twentieth-century German philosophy, such as Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, Theodor Adorno, Jürgen Habermas, and Max Horkheimer. According to the author, his book “does not intend to be a historical narrative” (8); nor does it intend to present “a few nuggets of insights from continental writings” (9). Instead, Zuidervaart tries to reconstruct the primary material and immanently criticizes the ... Read More
