  • Occasionalism: From Metaphysics to Science ed. by Matteo Favaretti
           Camposampiero, Mariangela Priarolo, and Emanuela Scribano (review)
    • Abstract: This volume consists of papers originally presented at the international conference "Occasionalism: History and Problems," held in Venice in 2015; it contains twelve chapters, nine of which are in English, three in French. In their introduction, the editors describe occasionalism as a theory that was viewed by Medieval Christian philosophers as a "dangerous and treacherous" threat (7), only later to be "proudly asserted" in the post-Descartes era (9). This raises the question of to what degree this transition should be seen as a result of interpretations of the commitments of Cartesian metaphysics, particularly with regard to questions concerning mind-body interaction. Many scholars have pointed out that to view ... Read More

  • Locke's Science of Knowledge by Matthew Priselac (review)
    • Abstract: This interesting and challenging book addresses the apparent gap between the empiricist account of the origin of ideas and the theory of knowledge in the Essay concerning Human Understanding. Matthew Priselac makes an impressive argument that they are complementary parts of a coherent program. It consists of a naturalistic interpretation on which the Essay's main aim is to provide the kind of understanding of the mind, knowledge, and probability afforded by modern methods of natural scientific inquiry.On this view, the Essay advances a hypothesis intended to explain the epistemic phenomena of everyday life, that is, what we take ourselves to know rather than hold as probable. It describes a process by which the ... Read More

  • Character and Causation: Hume's Philosophy of Action by Constantine Sandis
           (review)
    • Abstract: Constantine Sandis's suggestive new book consists of a series of discrete studies of aspects of Hume's philosophical system that culminate in an argument for the conclusion that "on Hume's view . . . we are only morally responsible for that subset of actions that have been motivated by our character traits" (90). That final conclusion is the end of a wide-ranging and systematic argument that feels too compressed in the scant one-hundred and twenty-three pages in which it is presented, especially since the philosophical and exegetical theses that Sandis presents along the way are intriguing and receive just enough support to make the reader long for a more robust consideration of them.Sandis's grand argument begins ...

  • The Emergence of Autonomy in Kant's Moral Philosophy ed. by Stefano Bacin
           and Oliver Sensen (review)
    • Abstract: Kant introduces autonomy in the Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals as "the characteristic of the will by which it is a law to itself" (GMS 4:440). Autonomy is Kant's solution to a puzzle about how to describe and account for moral obligation, which binds necessarily and cannot, therefore, be derived from any independent desire or interest. But Kant's pithy description of autonomy raises more questions than it settles. How is self-legislation possible in the first place' How is autonomy related to the various imperatival statements of the moral law in the Groundwork' How can rational agents be motivated by their recognition of obligation in the absence of some other interest'Though the title of the volume ...

  • Pessimism in Kant's Ethics and Rational Religion by Dennis Vanden Auweele
           (review)
    • Abstract: In this book, Dennis Vanden Auweele explores the tension between pessimism and optimism in Kant's ethics and philosophy of religion. Going against a long tradition of interpretation that groups Kant together with other classic philosophers of hope, he aims to highlight the latent pessimism in Kant's works, and show that the full-blown pessimism of post-Kantian philosophers such as Schopenhauer can be read as the attempt to "think Kant's project through to its natural end" (200). What Vanden Auweele means by 'pessimism' is not the Schopenhaurean view that it would have been better not to exist, but the view that "human nature does not navigate toward the good, that (the ideal of) autonomy has but a relatively meager ...

  • Kant on Evil, Self-Deception, and Moral Reform by Laura Papish (review)
    • Abstract: Iris Murdoch wrote that we should always ask about any philosopher: "what are they afraid of'" (The Sovereignty of Good, 71. London: Routledge, 1970). One of Kant's most acute anxieties is the human tendency to motivated illusion and self-deception. For Kant, not only is it the case that "the depths of the human heart are unfathomable" (6:447), but we human beings actively undermine our own efforts to know it, we "throw dust in our own eyes" (6:38). In her book, Laura Papish offers a rich, holistic account of the Kantian person—not just the "agent"—in order to provide a textually-based, philosophically-defensible analysis of the relationship between self-deception and evil in Kant's philosophy.The main questions ...

  • Emotion, Reason and Action in Kant by Maria Borges (review)
    • Abstract: Despite the fact that emotions have become an important part of Kant scholarship in the last thirty years and counting, few books are devoted to the topic. Borges's book remedies this lacuna. Kant scholars who are familiar with her work will be happy to see her account of emotions connected to other discussions of Kantian moral psychology.The book begins with a general account of actions, reasons, and causes (chapter 1). Given this background, Borges then raises the question: what role do emotions play in this framework' Chapters 2, 3, and 4 explain how emotions function in Kant's moral psychology.

  • Reading Wittgenstein with Anscombe, Going onto Ethics by Cora Diamond
           (review)
    • Abstract: In many ways, this is a difficult and important book about a difficult and important book (Anscombe's An Introduction to Wittgenstein's Tractatus) about a difficult and important book (Wittgenstein's Tractatus). It is also much more, as Diamond highlights Anscombe's work on ethics and action as she moves to engage metaethical questions about relativism and truth. One of the unifying threads is the matter of thinking about thinking, especially the ways we respond to thinking that has gone astray (5). Thinking that does go astray traverses paths with "dangerous spots," as Wittgenstein says. The dangerous spots may be muddles and confusions. To avoid these paths, we need sign posts. Diamond's work provides a ... Read More

  • The Golden Age of Philosophy of Science, 1945 to 2000: Logical
           Reconstruction, Descriptivism, Normative, Naturalism, and Foundationalism
           by John Losee (review)
    • Abstract: Should philosophers of science offer methodological prescriptions about how science ought to be practiced, or should they rest content with describing ways it has actually been practiced over time' Do the standards by which good science is assessed remain stable over time' How should rival philosophies of science be evaluated, and what role ought history of science play in such assessments' This book engages such questions while introducing a range of key ideas and debates by examining the four positions named in its subtitle: Logical Reconstructionism, Descriptivism, Normative Naturalism, and Foundationalism. Why 1945 to 2000' After World War II, as graduate programs and journals were established, philosophy of ... Read More

  • The Cambridge History of Moral Philosophy ed. by Sacha Golob and Jens
           Timmermann (review)
    • Abstract: Given its scope and the size of many Cambridge Histories, this volume is short. It is 751 pages long. The main text consist of 54 chapters of between 12 and 14 pages each (including bibliographies). For comparison, The Cambridge History of Renaissance Philosophy is 968 pages long. One might ask why the present volume could not be allowed a similar length. 200 more pages could have made for a much more useful book, as I will suggest below.The brevity of the chapters makes room for a large cast of characters, and avoids concentration on the best-known texts in the history of ethics. The chapters cover not only Aristotle, Hume, and Kant, but also medieval Jewish and Islamic philosophers, Descartes, Pascal, Bayle ... Read More

  • True in Word and Deed: Plato on the Impossibility of Divine Deception
    • Abstract: Since God is omnipotent, he cannot die, he cannot be deceived, nor can he lie; and, as the Apostle says, 'He cannot deny himself.' . . . For if he could die, he would not be omnipotent; if he could lie, be deceived, deceive, or act in any unjust way, he would not be omnipotent, because if this were in him, he would not have been be worthy to be omnipotent.By 'God' I mean the very being the idea of whom is within me, that is, the possessor of all the perfections which I cannot grasp . . . who is subject to no defects whatsoever. It is clear enough from this that he cannot be a deceiver, since it is manifest by the natural light that fraud and deception depend on some defect.the primary aim of this article is to ... Read More

  • Avicenna's Outsourced Rationalism
    • Abstract: in a seminal and highly influential study, Werner Jaeger presented the development of Aristotle, or Aristotelianism, as the emergence of an empiricist alternative to the rationalist fold of Plato and Platonism.1 Pitting perceived phenomena against the recollection of innate ideas, Aristotle founded knowledge on the perception of universal features and regularities in concrete things instead of an intuitive access to a separate world of incorporeal forms. In close analysis, such a straightforward opposition is forced, of course, and sets aside a number of complicated questions of interpretation. To say nothing of Plato, Aristotle's alleged empiricism stands in rather stark contrast to the axiomatic tendencies in his ... Read More

  • Locke's Natural and Religious Epistemology
    • Abstract: in their famous correspondence, Stillingfleet objects that Locke's definition of knowledge, by limiting certainty to the perception of the agreement or disagreement of ideas, lessens the credibility of faith. Locke replies that his definition of knowledge does not affect the credibility of an article of faith at all, for faith and knowledge are entirely different cognitive acts:The truth of the matter of fact is in short this, that I have placed knowledge in the perception of the agreement or disagreement of ideas. This definition of knowledge, your lordship said, "might be of dangerous consequence to that article of faith, which you have endeavored to defend." This I denied, and gave this reason for it, viz. ... Read More

  • On the Experience of Activity: William James's Late Metaphysics and the
           Influence of Nineteenth-Century French Spiritualism
    • Abstract: is it possible to have a first-person experience of our own agency' In nineteenth-century France, this question was subject to intense philosophical debate. The two figures primarily associated with each side of the debate were Maine de Biran (1766–1824) and Charles Renouvier (1815–1903). Biran developed powerful objections to Hume's arguments that purported to prove the impossibility of the experience of one's inner causal force. These objections were the match that lit this philosophical fire, and formed the foundation of the philosophy of the French spiritualist school; a school that included Félix Ravaisson (1813–1900), Jules Lachelier (1832–1918), Émile Boutroux (1845–1921), and Henri Bergson (1859–1941).1 ...

  • The Death of Consciousness' James's Case against Psychological
           Unobservables
    • Abstract: Ame, vie, souffle, qui saurait bien les distinguer exactement'1like heartburn, a pronounced discomfort with the very idea of consciousness followed the early days of experimental psychology. Received wisdom has it that psychologists (and allied philosophers) came to mistrust consciousness for largely behaviorist reasons—they are supposed to have worried about the alleged impossibility of performing quantifiable, repeatable measurements on an essentially private phenomenon.2 But this is a historical distortion, one that obscures some interesting and earlier philosophical concerns about the scientific study of consciousness.Behaviorists rejected the scientific respectability of consciousness, to be sure. But by the ... Read More

  • An Inventory of the Extant Correspondence of Elisabeth of Bohemia,
           Princess Palatine (1618–1680)
    • Abstract: This article provides a first inventory of the extant correspondence of Elisabeth of Bohemia (1618–1680), Princess Palatine and later Abbess of Herford. Elisabeth, one of the most famous women philosophers of the seventeenth century, is best known today for her comprehensive exchange of letters with the French philosopher René Descartes (1596–1650). Additionally, her relation to the Quakers, especially to Robert Barclay and William Penn, has received some scholarly attention.1 Less known is the fact that, throughout her lifetime, Elisabeth corresponded with family members, scientists, philosophers, politicians, and learned men and women from various European countries.2 The range and content of her extant ...

  • Aristotle's Science of Matter and Motion by Christopher Byrne (review)
    • Abstract: Seventeenth-century advancements in physical science are often presented as overthrowing the Aristotelian tradition; perhaps Aristotle's emphasis on formal and final causes left little room for a physical theory grounded in material and efficient causes. In Aristotle's Science of Matter and Motion, Christopher Byrne argues that Aristotle is not to blame, as he indeed possessed a unified theory of matter and motion. In contrast to traditional interpretations, which place an undue explanatory burden on formal and final causes, Byrne argues that Aristotle's theory of the physical world is dependent on the features possessed by perceptible objects, qua perceptible, as well as non-teleological changes in matter.Byrne's ...

  • Aristotle on Earlier Greek Psychology: The Science of the Soul by Jason W.
           Carter (review)
    • Abstract: Once upon a time in the twentieth century, it was considered good sense by some to think that Aristotle began his De anima (DA) with a series of very Aristotelian theories about the soul, and that the function of its first book was to eristically taunt his predecessors for failing to appreciate hylomorphism, or patronizingly praise them for getting the odd bit right. Jason Carter deserves our thanks for showing how wrong-headed this reading of Aristotle is. His book begins with the much more sensible assumption that the review of previous δόξαι in DA I plays an important and even constitutive role for theses at the core of Aristotle's theory of soul and living things, prominent among them these two: that the soul ...

  • Health and Hedonism in Plato and Epicurus by Kelly Arenson (review)
    • Abstract: Epicurus had a distinctive position on pleasure: the greatest possible pleasure consists in the absence of pain. The pain in question may be physical or psychological. Not to be hungry, cold, or otherwise distressed is the greatest pleasure that the body can know; to be free of fear, particularly the kind of vague, undirected anxiety that Lucretius called cura, is the most pleasant state that the mind can achieve. As Lucretius exclaims, "Do you not see that our nature cries out for nothing other than that pain be absent from the body and that it may enjoy in the mind pleasant sensations, far from anxiety and fear'" (2.16–18). Beyond this, Epicurus avers, pleasures can only be varied, not increased. Epicurus further ... Read More

  • The Political Morality of the Late Scholastics: Civil Life, War and

    • Abstract: How should a crisis sparked by migration of the poor be dealt with' How should tax evasion be addressed' What is the appropriate response to manipulation of elections' Daniel Schwartz's book illustrates that moralists, lawyers, political decision makers, and society at large already contended with these issues some four hundred years ago. The underlying problems and their normative implications were thoroughly analyzed by scholastic authors at the time, many of whom wrote with an eye on influencing the emerging interested public, or doubled as advisors for political decision makers. Political morality, the moral analysis of political decisions, is a particular field of applied ethics (undoubtedly, an important ... Read More
