  • Plutarch's Epicurean Justification of Religious Belief
    • Abstract: as a middle-platonist flourishing after the end of the Hellenistic period, the wide-ranging philosophical work of Plutarch of Chaeronea (40–120 CE), in his Moralia, is often stuck between the rock of systematizing Plato's metaphysical and ethical doctrines, and the hard place of defending these doctrines against Stoic and Epicurean rivals. For this reason, scholars used to identifying the philosophically valuable with the philosophically original have tended to assume that Plutarch's polemical writings, which all presuppose the truth of Platonism, contain little that is of philosophical value.1Even so, recent scholarship on these works has shown that there is more originality in them than we might expect.2 In this ...

  • Augustine and the Transcendent Vision of Other Souls
    • Abstract: We mortals can't read other people's minds directly. But we make good guesses from what they say, what we read between the lines, what they show in their face and eyes, and what best explains their behavior. It is our species' most remarkable talent.1augustine's reflections on the topic of seeing other souls have attracted interest in recent years. It is generally supposed in the scholarly literature that his view that our mental lives are essentially private leads to a deep-seated concern with what (if anything) we manifest to others. Further, Phillip Cary charges Augustine with introducing a "powerful fantasy" and "nostalgia" into western thought in Augustine's desire to see the thoughts of other souls directly; ... Read More

  • The Topics Transformed: Reframing the Baconian Prerogative Instances
    • Abstract: john c. briggs has commented that "The reading of Baconian texts resembles the Baconian reading of nature, for in both the interpreter must discover a clue to the labyrinth."1 This thought certainly applies to the Praerogatiuis Instantiarum ("prerogative instances" or "instances with special powers") and their precise role in Bacon's Novum Organum.2 These instances occupy thirty-one of the fifty-two sections of Novum Organum II, whereas only nine are devoted to the much better-known work of the tabulation of affirmative, negative and deviating instances, and one long section on the "first vintage" of eliminative induction. The sections on the prerogative instances fill some 131 of the 183 pages of Novum Organum II ... Read More

  • Geometrical Figures in Spinoza's Book of Nature
    • Abstract: the view of spinoza as a scion of the mathematico-mechanistic tradition of Galileo and Descartes, albeit perhaps an idiosyncratic one, has been held by many commentators and might be considered standard.1 Although the standard view has a prima facie solid basis in Spinoza's conception of the physical world as extended, law-bound, and deterministic, it has come under sustained criticism of late. Arguing that, for Spinoza, numbers and figures are mere beings of reason and mathematical conceptions of nature belong to the imagination rather than the intellect, recent commentators have cast doubt on the applicability of mathematics to natural science in Spinoza and challenged the association of him with the Galilean and ...

  • Emilie du Châtelet's Metaphysics of Substance
    • Abstract: much early modern metaphysics grew with an eye to the new science of its time, but few figures took it as seriously as Emilie du Châtelet. Happily, her oeuvre is now attracting close, renewed attention, and so the time is ripe for looking into her metaphysical foundation for empirical theory (ca. 1740). Accordingly, I move here to do just that. I establish two conclusions. First, du Châtelet's basic metaphysics is a robust realism. Idealist strands, while they exist, are confined to non-basic regimes. Second, her substance realism seems internally coherent, so her foundational project appears successful.I have two aims in this paper. Historically, I show that du Châtelet's main source of inspiration was Christian ... Read More

  • Kant's Gesinnung
    • Abstract: One of the most important developments in the past decades of scholarship on Kant's practical philosophy is a growing interest in his conception of moral character, especially in his conception of virtue. Focusing especially on his later works in moral philosophy, such as the Doctrine of Virtue in his Metaphysics of Morals, commentators have shown that Kant possesses a rich, elaborate account of moral virtue. This has brought partly unexpected aspects of Kantian moral philosophy to new light.

  • Science and Two Kinds of Knowledge: Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, and the
           Ignorabimus-Streit
    • Abstract: on december 20, 1826, Goethe reportedly said to his young friend and protégé Johann Peter Eckermann,I honor mathematics as the most sublime and useful science, as long as one applies it appropriately; but I cannot applaud those who would misuse it on things that lie completely outside of its domain, and where that noble science appears instantly as nonsense. As if only that existed which lets itself be proven mathematically. How foolish it would be if someone were not to believe in his beloved's affection because she cannot mathematically prove it to him!(Eckermann, Gespräche mit Goethe, 175)Goethe, who was an accomplished scientist in his own right, did not mean to be courting irrationalism with such ...

  • Rereading Ancient Philosophy: Old Chestnuts and Sacred Cows eds. by Verity
           Harte and Raphael Woolf (review)
    • Abstract: The "old chestnuts" of this engaging volume are, to quote its cover, "well-known passages in the works of ancient philosophers about which one might have thought everything there is to say has already been said"; its "sacred cows" are "views about what ancient philosophers thought, on issues of philosophical importance, that have attained the status of near-unquestioned orthodoxy." The degree of success in the targeting of such bovine targets among the thirteen papers is variable: thus Shaul Tor makes short work of the ancient view, newly revived by Daniel Graham, that pre-Platonic natural philosophers operated with purely mechanical systems (Heraclitus's nature does love [to hide]); Amber Carpenter takes aim, via ...

  • From Natural Character to Moral Virtue in Aristotle by Mariska Leunissen
           (review)
    • Abstract: In her new book, Leunissen, author of Explanation and Teleology in Aristotle's Science of Nature (2010), turns her expertise in Aristotle's biology to the issue of virtue of character. The book contains some fascinating material from Aristotle's biological works and also material from relatively neglected parts of the Politics, including discussions of ethnography, climate, physiognomy, and "eugenics." Leunissen's thesis is that an examination of this material will provide insight into how people become morally virtuous, and especially why Aristotle excludes women from this group.Leunissen suggests that it is Aristotle's biology that leads to his views about women, but that does not exclude the possibility of the ...

  • Aristotle on Religion by Mor Segev (review)
    • Abstract: Here is the problem: Aristotle seems clearly to reject the traditional Olympian gods. His own conception of god (see especially Metaphysics Λ) seems to have no religious significance; for whatever else this god knows (a subject of much debate), it certainly does not know particulars, including humans and their characters, actions, and futures. Yet in the Politics, Aristotle includes priests as public officials and lands devoted to the traditional gods as necessary parts of his ideal polis, and he even seems to regard the Oracle of Delphi as an important institution (see especially Politics VII 8, 9, 12). One solution to this problem, rarely attempted by scholars, is to argue that Aristotle in fact does not reject ... Read More

  • Die Aristotelische Logik—Erklärt von Ihren Antiken Interpreten by

    • Abstract: Aristotle's Organon received sedulous attention throughout late antiquity. This is reflected in the surviving corpus of commentaries written, in different exegetical and didactic styles, by peripatetic and Platonic authors. Does this collection constitute a single tradition' Beatrix Freibert is confident that the answer to this difficult question is yes, and sets out to explain the differences and vindicate the connectedness of what she takes to be a unified intellectual construction. She insists that, despite the many peculiarities, all commentators participate in a progressive effort to discern the purpose (skopos) of the Organon, and, with its purpose, understand its unity and achieve some fundamental exegetical ...

  • Olimpiodoro d'Alessandria: Tutti i Commentari a Platone trans. and ed. by
           Francesca Filippi (review)
    • Abstract: For those of us who do not idealize Proclus's contribution to Platonic scholarship, which is influenced excessively by the conviction that Orphic and Chaldaean texts are working within the same system, the commentaries of Olympiodorus can represent a substantial step forward. The range of issues tackled in his commentaries is often much closer to that expected of a modern commentary than those of his illustrious Athenian predecessor. This is not entirely new, since much the same could be said of Hermias, working within Syrianus's school as Proclus did, and of Damascius when commenting on the Phaedo or Philebus rather than on the Parmenides. Yet our picture of so-called neoplatonism remains dominated by the more ... Read More

  • Success and Suppression: Arabic Sciences and Philosophy in the Renaissance
           by Dag Nicolaus Hasse (review)
    • Abstract: Historiography of Renaissance philosophy and science has long been characterized by tendencies to minimize the influence of medieval Arabic philosophy and science. According to the standard narrative, the humanists successfully eliminated Arabic writers, along with their Latin scholastic interpreters. Against this background (and in the sensitive political context of present day polemics about the contribution of Islamic civilization to European culture), Dag Nikolaus Hasse calls for a "sober historical approach" (xii) in order to "assess the factual influence of Arabic sciences and philosophy in the Renaissance" (xiii). His narrative is summarized by the title of his impressively erudite and well-documented ... Read More

  • Averroes' Natural Philosophy and its Reception in the Latin West ed. by

    • Abstract: The volume under review presents the state of the art when it comes to tracking the reception of Ibn Rushd (the Latin Averroes, 1126–1198), the famed Aristotelian commentator from Andalusia, within medieval Latin philosophy. These are all very high-quality essays, each brimming with subtle insights into the way that themes and philosophical puzzles in Aristotle were framed in Averroes's works through the lens of late antique commentary, and how the Latin scholastics then furthered the agenda through their own creative work as well as further comparisons with other eminent philosophers of the likes of Augustine and Avicenna. A standing theme that emerges is the contested relationship between tradition and ... Read More

Since Graham Rees founded The Oxford Francis Bacon Project in 1995, research on Francis Bacon's work has made significant progress. Romanian researchers have offered translations of major works, such as Novum Organum and Sylva Sylvarum. An important project of translation of Bacon's works into French (with Classiques Garnier) is also underway. A new generation of researchers has emerged, editors of this volume included, offering new insights into Bacon's thought, and fighting against "idols of Baconian scholarship" and "blind spots" in ...

  • The Idea of Principles in Early Modern Thought: Interdisciplinary
           Perspectives ed. by Peter R. Anstey (review)
    • Abstract: This book is a collection of essays that relate in some way to the notion of a principle as it appears in early modern thought. Essays by James Franklin, J. C. Campbell, Alberto Vanzo, Anstey, and William R. Newman provide a survey of the usage of principles within particular subjects: the principles of early modern mathematics, equity law, corpuscularism, and chemistry or alchemy, respectively. Other essays, by Kristen Walsh and Michael LeBuffe, clarify a particular early modern thinker's understanding and usage of the term 'principle.' Walsh's essay concerns Newton's usage and understanding of the term, while LeBuffe's concerns Spinoza's. Other essays, by Daniel Garber and Kiyoshi Shimokawa, clarify how an early ... Read More

  • Descartes, la métaphysique et l'infini by Dan Arbib (review)
    • Abstract: Dan Arbib's book follows the numerous studies devoted, in the last twenty years, to the topic of the infinite in Descartes. For the first time, however, with Arbib's work, this question is addressed thematically.Its fundamental purpose is the demonstration of what Arbib calls an "induction a priori" (78): the Cartesian infinite belongs, and at the same time does not belong, to metaphysics as ontotheology. The verification of this hypothesis depends on a "non-negotiable condition" (79): the infinite belongs to metaphysics insofar as it is subordinated to the ego, and for this reason is supremely representable. The infinite, indeed, arises along the metaphysical path of Duns Scotus (and Bonaventure) that, in the ... Read More

  • Fifteen Sermons and Other Writings on Ethics by Joseph Butler (review)
    • Abstract: As a young Anglican clergyman, Joseph Butler (1692–1752) published the first edition of his Fifteen Sermons Preached at the Rolls Chapel in 1721; a revised edition appeared in 1729. Almost immediately, it was widely understood that these sermons present a strikingly subtle and careful form of a relatively traditional conception of ethics, in contrast to the more radical views of other philosophers such as Thomas Hobbes. Only a few years later, David Hume was much concerned to assimilate Butler's insights, while himself arguing for more radical views; and those who sought to respond to Hume, such as Richard Price and Thomas Reid, drew deeply on Butler's thought.Such early utilitarians as Jeremy Bentham and J. S. ... Read More

  • Thomas Reid and the Problem of Secondary Qualities by Christopher A.

    • Abstract: Philosophers from the modern age and current philosophers share some common concerns. One is whether the ordinary objects of human perception—the objects humans see, hear, feel, taste, and smell—exist independently of our perception of them in a shared, stable, spatially-localized environment that also exists independently of perception. Another is whether a particular range of properties—colors, flavors, odors, sounds, feels—are (a) properties of the ordinary objects of human perception, (b) relations whose relata are properties of ordinary objects and types of typical human experiences, or (c) properties of, or identical with, types of typical human experiences.Because both modern and current philosophers have ...

  • Reflecting Subjects: Passion, Sympathy, and Society in Hume's Philosophy
           by Jacqueline A. Taylor (review)
    • Abstract: In this entry to David Hume scholarship, Jacqueline Taylor brings together a line of interpretation she has been developing over several years, connecting Hume's theory of the passions to what she calls Hume's "social theory." Through a concise, well-organized argument, the book offers insights into how one of the Enlightenment's most famous and gifted thinkers conceptualized social roles and institutions, the ways we navigate these roles and institutions, and how all this connects to the kind of creature we are. It is a rewarding read for anyone interested in Hume's moral project.The book begins with a lively, historicized defense of Hume's "experimental" method against readers who have thought his approach fails ...

  • Kant and the Philosophy of Mind: Perception, Reason, and the Self eds. by
           Anil Gomes and Andrew Stephenson (review)
    • Abstract: In his useful introduction, Gomes makes clear that a relatively modest claim animates this excellent collection of essays. The editors do not seek to establish that Kant should primarily be seen as a philosopher of mind, but rather, quite simply, that his broader philosophical project requires that he be "engaged in the philosophy of mind" (6). This has allowed them to gather together essays that advance the debate on issues that, quite independently of their classification, have been the subject of much recent interest in Kant scholarship.The first set of essays questions whether Kant takes sensible intuitions to be dependent, on the one hand, on concepts, and, on the other hand, on objects. Lucy Allais builds on ... Read More

  • Fichte's Foundations of Natural Right: A Critical Guide ed. by Gabriel
           Gottlieb (review)
    • Abstract: This excellent collection features consistently illuminating and often groundbreaking work on issues raised by Fichte's philosophy of right. All twelve chapters make new contributions to specialized debates. Most will be accessible to nonspecialists nonetheless, and many will richly repay careful consideration by readers interested in Fichte, post-Kantian political theory, or classic debates about rights and the state.Fichte's Foundations of Natural Right (FNR) breaks with prior Kantian tradition by insisting on a strict separation of right from morality. Angelica Nuzzo discerns a systematic basis for this break in Fichte's decision to frame his practical philosophy around the finite human subject, who ... Read More
