  • The Bounds of Sense and the Limits of Analysis
    • Abstract: this paper was written to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of The Bounds of Sense by Peter (later Sir Peter) Strawson, in 1966. My own engagement with Kant's Critique of Pure Reason began a few months later, with a course in the spring semester of 1967 taught by Robert Nozick. The Critique had not been regularly taught at Harvard since the retirement of C. I. Lewis a dozen years before, and Nozick, then a twenty-eight-year-old assistant professor, started the course disarmingly by telling us that he was offering the course because he had never read the Critique before and thought that teaching it would be a good way to learn it. Whether he was putting us on, I will never know, but it was ... Read More

  • Aristotle and the Endoxic Method
    • Abstract: sir arthur conan doyle could have written the Sherlock Holmes stories in a different way. Imagine that, in those stories, clients would come to 221B Baker Street, ask Holmes to help solve a crime, and recount to him all the witness testimony they were able to collect. After the clients left his office, Holmes would take a seat in his armchair, light his clay pipe, and take stock of all the inconsistencies in the testimony presented to him. With these difficulties of the case in clear view, Holmes would then set out to resolve them. His subsequent detective work would scrutinize the witness testimony, rejecting any that were downright false and clarifying any that were true but misleading. Holmes would close the ... Read More

  • Locke on Personal Identity: A Response to the Problems of His Predecessors
    • Abstract: john locke argues that personal identity consists in sameness of consciousness, and he maintains that any other theory of personal identity would lead to "great Absurdities" (Essay, II.xxvii.21).1 This statement intimates that Locke thought carefully about alternative conceptions of personal identity and their problems. In this paper, I argue that, by understanding Locke's account of personal identity in the context of metaphysical and religious debates of his time, especially debates concerning the afterlife and the state of the soul between death and resurrection, we can reveal the strengths of his view and show how his account of personal identity in terms of sameness of consciousness has the resources to avoid ...

  • Restoring Kant's Conception of the Highest Good
    • Abstract: kant's doctrine of the highest good is among the most perplexing and most controversial aspects of his practical philosophy. There is widespread disagreement about exactly what the Highest Good is, how Kant argues for it, and what function it is supposed to fulfill. While the many disputes over this doctrine stretch well beyond the problem of how its duty is compatible with the Kantian principle that 'ought implies can,' this principle may, nevertheless, be seen as their common root.Time and again, Kant tells us, first, that since we have a duty to promote the Highest Good, it must be possible; and, second, that its possibility depends on the practical postulates concerning God and immortality. We find these two ... Read More

  • Perspectives without Privileges: The Estates in Hegel's Political
           Philosophy
    • Abstract: we do not wonder enough about the prominence Hegel gives to the estates in his ethical and political philosophy. Part of the reason we Hegelians, in particular, do not is surely the concern that doing so will render Hegel archaic or parochial, and thus condemn him to the kind of respectful neglect Montesquieu has suffered for similar reasons. In fact, it is often claimed that the German term for a society structured by the estates, die Ständegesellschaft, has a translation into French, la société d'ordres, but not into English. It names a form of social order grounded in custom, in which legal and political statuses are individually specified by particular grants to and agreements with both individuals but ... Read More

  • The Will, the Will to Believe, and William James: An Ethics of Freedom as
           Self-Transformation
    • Abstract: william james's writings on morality form a vexed collection. Most philosophers regard James as having contributed primarily to epistemology, metaphysics, and psychology, viewing his moral philosophy as secondary, derivative, and accordingly uninteresting for contemporary debates. Among James's writings on moral matters, surely the most infamous is "The Will to Believe." Often read as primarily a contribution to epistemology or philosophy of religion,1 a number of critics spanning well over one hundred years of readership argue that "The Will to Believe" attempts to foist an incredible ethics of belief, one that is problematic in that it defends believing in precisely that which has not been credited as being ...

  • A Kantian Disagreement between Father and Son: Roy Wood Sellars and
           Wilfrid Sellars on the Categories
    • Abstract: that wilfrid sellars was a more subtle and sophisticated philosopher than his father, Roy Wood Sellars, is, I believe, a rather uncontroversial assessment, one which, with fatherly pride, Roy1 would most probably have endorsed. Even considering the radical shift in philosophical methods and attitude which took place in the United States in the decades of Wilfrid's philosophically formative years (that prompted by the British-German-Austrian cultural invasion, the rise of logical positivism, and of logic- and language-first analytic philosophy), Wilfrid's unrelenting philosophical acumen and imagination, his unflinching resolve to doggedly pursue a problem on a variety of fronts at once (arguably the cause of his ...

  • The Possibility of Inquiry: Meno's Paradox from Socrates to Sextus by Gail
           Fine (review)
    • Abstract: In the first half of this book, Gail Fine provides a renewed defense of her reading of Meno's famous paradox; in the second, she provides novel accounts of how Aristotle, the Stoics, the Epicureans, and Sextus Empiricus responded to the paradox. For reasons of space, I focus on the first half, where Fine defends the same basic account of Meno's paradox she put forward in her influential "Inquiry in the Meno" (1992). The book goes further, considering and dismissing several alternatives not considered there and arguing at length against recent accounts in the secondary literature, especially those of Dominic Scott and David Charles.According to Fine, Meno's paradox rests on Meno misunderstanding what Socrates means ...

  • Levels of Argument: A Comparative Study of Plato's Republic and
           Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics by Dominic Scott (review)
    • Abstract: The results of this comparison of the Republic and the Nicomachean Ethics (EN) can be summed up thusly: (i) the texts share the same methodology, (ii) this methodology is based on a functional account of human nature, and (iii) whereas Plato believes that political philosophy needs grounding in metaphysics, Aristotle considers such a thing possible but superfluous.I shall here focus on (i) exclusively. The shared methodology is characterized by two Platonic similes: the cave from the Republic, and the racecourse simile that Aristotle attributes to Plato in EN 1.4. Both represent a research program with three steps: starting from ordinary intuitions about political matters and ascending towards higher principles ... Read More

  • On Being and Cognition: Ordinatio by John Duns Scotus (review)
    • Abstract: On Being and Cognition: Ordinatio 1.3 is a translation by John van den Bercken of John Duns Scotus's large and influential treatise on mind and knowledge contained in book 1, distinction 3, of his Ordinatio. This is the first English rendering of Scotus's important distinction that is both complete and made from the definitive Latin text. Scotus's Ordinatio is the revised and greatly expanded version of his Oxford lectures on Sentences of Peter Lombard. (The term ordinatio designates an authorial compilation or revision.) The Sentences of Lombard was itself a twelfth-century summa, later adopted as the required systematic text for theology in the medieval university. Commentaries on the work rapidly evolved into ...

  • Nicholas of Amsterdam: Commentary on the Old Logic by Egbert P. Bos
           (review)
    • Abstract: This is an edition of commentaries on Porphyry's Isagoge and Aristotle's Categories and On Interpretation attributed to Nicholas of Amsterdam (1390–ca. 1438), who taught as magister Erfordiensis at the University of Rostock. Nicholas's own position is what he calls "the position of the moderns" (via moderna), which in this instance means that he adopts and defends primarily the approach of John Buridan (ca. 1300–1361) and Marsilius of Inghen (ca. 1340–1396), including their conceptualism. As Bos notes (xiii), Nicholas is thus a good source of information about how the works of Marsilius and Buridan were transmitted and studied. Nonetheless, Nicholas often, and frequently sympathetically, discusses Ockham's ... Read More

  • Truth and Irony: Philosophical Meditations on Erasmus by Terence J. Martin
           (review)
    • Abstract: This is a remarkable book on an important theme, namely, knowing ourselves, which the author elaborates in three meditations. The first is devoted to the virtues and vices of the tongue, that is, the relationship between truth and deceit. It is in this chapter that irony, the central concept of the book, is most fully elaborated. The second has war as its central theme and deals first and foremost with the possibility of civilizing war. Is there any sanity in war' In the last meditation, a bunch of related questions are treated that boil down to the role of security, prosperity, happiness, and pleasure in life. Each of the three meditations is a fine and erudite examination wherein the author tries to unravel an ... Read More

  • Julius Caesar Scaliger, Renaissance Reformer of Aristotelianism: A Study
           of His Exotericae Exercitationes by Kuni Sakamoto (review)
    • Abstract: Julius Caesar Scaliger (1484–1558) was a natural philosopher and literary theorist whose work was widely discussed throughout the second half of the sixteenth and the first half of the seventeenth centuries. After this period, it fell into oblivion, only to be rediscovered during the last three decades or so. His natural philosophy has triggered a series of specialized studies on particular aspects of his thought, especially those aspects that were influential in the development of early modern corpuscularianism. Sakamoto's book goes considerably beyond such fragmentary approaches and presents central strands of Scaliger's most important work in natural philosophy, a thousand-page critique of Girolamo Cardano's De ...

  • The Influence of Abraham Cohen de Herrera's Kabbalah on Spinoza's
           Metaphysics by Miquel Beltràn (review)
    • Abstract: Addressing the alleged "great secrets" contained in Scripture, Spinoza wrote in the Theological Political Treatise (TTP): "I have also read, and for that matter, known personally, certain Kabbalistic triflers. I've never been able to be sufficiently amazed by their madness" (TTP chapter 9, Gebhardt III/136/1–2). Were these words Spinoza's only reference to the Kabbalah, we would hardly have any reason to believe that his attitude toward the Kabbalistic literature was anything but dismissive. However, in a 1675 letter to Henry Oldenburg, Spinoza stressed that he shared the view that "all things are in God" with certain ancient traditions (traditionibus) of the Hebrews, "corrupted as they have been in many ways" ...

  • The Collected Works of Spinoza by Benedictus de Spinoza (review)
    • Abstract: Edwin Curley published the first volume of his translation of Spinoza's Collected Works more than thirty years ago. It was a landmark that signaled a renewed interest among English-speaking scholars in Spinoza's work. Now, the second volume has appeared, and it too is a monument to scholarship and promises to inspire new research in the field.It contains new translations of the Theological-Political Treatise and the Political Treatise, as well as the rest of the correspondence, letters 29–84. As in the first volume, Curley has drawn on the important work of European scholars and added much that is new and important. The scholarly apparatus is remarkable. In addition to a general introduction, Curley has provided ... Read More

  • Bayle, Jurieu, and the Dictionnaire Historique et Critique by Mara van der
           Lugt (review)
    • Abstract: Scholars in history and philosophy know the extraordinary difficulty of producing original research that is simultaneously creative, well-documented, and methodologically rigorous. But this is exactly what Mara van der Lugt manages in her recent book, a comprehensive treatment of Pierre Bayle's magnum opus. Reading Bayle is not for the faint of heart; he is a complex thinker with a controversial legacy. Van der Lugt exhibits appropriate caution, and though other interpreters have professed similar caution (see Thomas M. Lennon, Reading Bayle, 1999), van der Lugt's methodological commitments necessitate it. Her approach imitates Bayle's own by suspending judgment on his intentions as author; attending meticulously ... Read More

  • Fichte's Addresses to the German Nation Reconsidered ed. by Daniel
           Breazeale and Tom Rockmore (review)
    • Abstract: Interpretation always takes place in the present tense. It is worth reminding ourselves of this, because few philosophical texts or treatises have suffered the rise and fall of the vagaries of their own contemporary Weltanschauung as Fichte's Addresses to the German Nation. Few texts in history have been simultaneously so overestimated and underestimated in their impact and importance as Fichte's Addresses; and therefore few texts can be said to be so misunderstood—and so need in of reassessment. This collection, Fichte's Addresses to the German Nation Reconsidered, edited by Daniel Breazeale and Tom Rockmore, precisely seeks to fill this lacuna. The interpretative fate of the Addresses has always hinged on the ... Read More

  • Nietzsche's Earth: Great Events, Great Politics by Gary Shapiro (review)
    • Abstract: In Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra, a central teaching calls on humanity to be "true to the earth," to affirm "the meaning [Sinn] of the earth." Scholars commonly read this as a call to embrace natural life, countering any transcendent or life-denying doctrine in the tradition. While certainly an apt reading, Gary Shapiro's remarkable new book draws attention to and articulates the many ways in which Nietzsche celebrates the actual earthen characteristics of human habitats: the concrete places, locales, climates, and environments that sustain our dwelling on earth. Here, geology and geography are brought to bear and expanded into an enriched, meaning-laden "geo-philosophy." Shapiro interprets Nietzsche's ... Read More

  • Adorno and Existence by Peter E. Gordon (review)
    • Abstract: The Anglophone reception of the work of T. W. Adorno has yet to succeed in making him a major part of mainstream philosophical debate. Among the reasons for this are the refusal of too many analytic philosophers to consider alternative approaches to philosophy, and Adorno's writing style, which does not always offer direct points of access for other philosophical traditions. Things are also not helped by the fact that writers on Adorno can tend to adopt some of his mode of writing, on the basis of the claim that Adorno's esoteric style is part of the content of his writing. However, Adorno's lectures on the topics of his major books are actually often remarkably lucid, offering ways of bringing him into almost any ... Read More
