  • Plato, Protagoras, and Predictions
    • Abstract: nearly every student of Plato knows of his Self-Refutation Argument (SRA) against Protagoras. And although it is the most famous, two of the other three major arguments in this section of the Theaetetus—the argument against flux (181c−183c) and the discussion of perception (184b−186e)—have also received a fair amount of attention. But the argument at 178a−179b, which I will call the 'Future Argument' (FA), has not. In 1990, Myles Burnyeat lamented the lack of a "sustained philosophical analysis" of this "extremely important argument."1 This lack of attention is plainly not due to the argument's lack of philosophical interest. Although the SRA and the argument against flux both mention wisdom in their conclusions,2 ... Read More

  • Aristotle on Enkratic Ignorance
    • Abstract: in book six of the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle famously argues that the excellences of the rational and nonrational parts of the soul, that is, practical wisdom (φρόνησις) and character virtue (ἀρετή), are interdependent: "it is not possible to possess virtue in the primary sense [κυρίως] without wisdom, nor to be wise without virtue of character."1 The latter part of this claim—that it is impossible to be practically wise without character virtue—has been a particular topic of attention in the scholarship. While Aristotle does give us an explanation of why two types of nonvirtuous agents necessarily lack practical wisdom (namely, the vicious person and the akratic person),2 commentators have been puzzled by the ...

  • Anne Conway and Her Circle on Monads
    • Abstract: in the steadily growing body of secondary literature on Anne Conway (1631–79), it has frequently been claimed that Conway anticipated, and maybe even influenced, Leibniz's theory of monads. This trend got going with a 1979 article by Carolyn Merchant, entitled "The Vitalism of Anne Conway: Its Impact on Leibniz's Concept of the Monad."1 It subsequently came to dominate the field; even now, many commentors still just take it for granted that Conway believed in monads. For example, this commitment is considered sufficiently central to her philosophy to earn a mention in the opening paragraph of the preface to Carol Wayne White's book on Conway, listed among just three things that are supposed to mark her out as ...

  • The Substantial Essence in Spinoza's Ontological Argument
    • Abstract: descartes appears to intentionally distance his a priori argument for God from the conceptual orientation of earlier arguments by insisting that God's true and immutable nature is something that is real whether he conceives it or not.I find within me countless ideas of things which even though they may not exist anywhere outside me still cannot be called nothing; for although in a sense they can be thought of at will, they are not my invention but have their own true and immutable natures.1Descartes's idea of a triangle, for instance, is a conception of a true and immutable nature that may be conceived whether any actual triangles do or ever have existed, and that is neither invented by nor dependent on his ...

  • Practical Reason' Salomon Maimon and the Problem of Moral Presentation
    • Abstract: The matter must be attacked from more sides! This is particularly advisable in morals, where the aim is not only to satisfy our desire for knowledge, but to better ourselves.between 1791 and 1792, karl leonhard reinhold, inaugural chair in Critical Philosophy at the University of Jena and popular advocate for the Kantian revolution, received and responded to a series of letters from Salomon Maimon. In the exchange, Maimon reiterated those skeptical doubts regarding the account of a priori synthetic judgments in the Critique of Pure Reason that he had introduced in his Essay on Transcendental Philosophy (1790) and that had gained him a modicum of recognition on the German philosophical scene. He made plain his view ... Read More

    • Abstract: many think that it is best for us to sublimate our "crude" passions and "unrefined" impulses. Here "base" sexual desires and "brute" aggressive drives are paradigmatic. Many take romantic love to be a higher form of attraction, even if they also see animalistic desire as acceptable or even valuable. And many believe that aggressive impulses are elevated when expressed less violently, as in philosophical debate or athletic competition—or even in noncompetitive acts of creativity or aesthetic appreciation, like Homer's epic depiction of martial valor in the Iliad, or an audience's satisfaction in the downfall of a tragic hero. More broadly, Freud claims that "sublimation of impulse" (Triebsublimierung) is "what makes ... Read More

  • Alice Ambrose and the American Reception of Wittgenstein's Philosophy of
           Mathematics, 1935–75
    • Abstract: on december 29, 1975, alice ambrose presented her presidential address, "Commanding a Clear View of Philosophy," before the seventy-second annual meeting of the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association in New York. The sixty-nine-year-old logician sought to demonstrate to those in attendance the state of philosophy in the United States. In surveying the present condition of American discussions in logic, language, and mind, Ambrose offered what she referred to as "reminders" of where philosophy as a vocation ought to go. Such a topic stemmed not only from Ambrose's life long engagement with the teaching of philosophy as Sophia & Austin Smith Professor of Philosophy at Smith College but also her ... Read More

  • Two New Documents on Spinoza's Biography
    • Abstract: remarkable as it may seem, we are still, nearly 350 years after Spinoza's death, uncovering new information about the philosopher's life. Previously unknown, or at least unnoticed, documents bearing facts about his years before the 1656 herem (excommunication) and about his parents and other relatives continue to emerge from the archives, especially concerning their communal, business, and religious activities in Portugal, France, and the Netherlands.In this article, we present two such documents, one from the Portuguese-Jewish Archives of Amsterdam concerning Spinoza himself, and one from the archives of the Lisbon Inquisition concerning his father, Miguel Espinoza. The former document was, in fact, hiding in ... Read More

  • JHP Announcements
    • Abstract: Mindful of the challenges facing young scholars working in the history of philosophy, the Board of Directors of the Journal of the History of Philosophy has established a program of Master Classes in the History of Philosophy. The central idea of the program is that a senior scholar who works primarily in some area of the history of philosophy undertakes to direct an intensive week of master classes for the benefit of a small group of recent Ph.D.s whose main research and teaching are in the relevant area. Normally, the classes will focus on one or more texts that are typically not part of material that the participants would have studied as graduate students. The goal of the program is the enhancement of the ... Read More

  • The Cosmopolitan Tradition: A Noble but Flawed Ideal by Martha C. Nussbaum
           (review)
    • Abstract: Martha Nussbaum's latest book is a lucid and accessible study of a concept with clear contemporary relevance. In an age of resurgent nationalism, a study of the idea and ideals of cosmopolitanism is remarkably timely. But this is hardly a mere tract for the times; as its acknowledgments note, parts of the book date back to 2000 (289). And ultimately, for all its timeliness, this is a scholarly rather than a popular study of "the long tradition of cosmopolitan political thought" (1) and the ways this tradition can help inform current debates in political philosophy.Nussbaum's book is organized into seven chapters. The first lays out the core idea of the cosmopolitan tradition: the Cynic/Stoic insight "that politics ... Read More

  • Genèse du Dieu souverain (Archéologie de la puissance II) by
           Gwenaëlle Aubry (review)
    • Abstract: As the subtitle indicates, and the introduction explains in more detail, this is a sequel to Aubry's 2006 book, Dieu sans la puissance. Dunamis et energeia chez Aristote et chez Plotin. In the present as well as in the previous studies, the author traces the developments and transformations undergone by the notion of power (dunamis, potentia) and in particular how these transformations affect the understanding of God. Whereas the first study follows the development from Aristotle's account of the divine being to Plotinus, the present volume covers, in five densely written chapters, medieval philosophers from Augustine to John Duns Scotus. According to the author, the history of the notion of power reflects two ... Read More

  • Hume, Passion, and Action by Elizabeth S. Radcliffe (review)
    • Abstract: Elizabeth Radcliffe's book is an important and original contribution to scholarship on Hume's ethics and moral psychology. Throughout, she deftly combines important discussions of Hume's predecessors and contemporaries that serve to contextualize his views with in-depth analysis of Hume's texts. At the same time, she shows an impressive familiarity with more recent scholarship on Hume's and Humean ethics, and deploys much of this recent scholarship to frame her own interpretation of Hume's ethics and moral psychology. That sophisticated and nuanced interpretation focuses particularly on the relations between and the respective roles played by belief, the passions, and moral sentiments in motivation and agency.The ...

  • Five Modes of Scepticism: Sextus Empiricus and the Agrippan Modes by
           Stefan Sienkiewicz (review)
    • Abstract: This book, which originated as the author's 2013 Oxford dissertation, treats five modes of argument described by the Pyrrhonian skeptic Sextus Empiricus. In the first book of the Outlines of Pyrrhonism (PH), Sextus claims that these modes (disagreement, hypothesis, infinite regression, reciprocity, and relativity) bring about suspension of judgment, a mental state in which one finds the considerations for and against some claim to be balanced. We see the modes used both alone and in combination when Sextus investigates dogmatic philosophy. Accordingly, Sienkiewicz assigns a chapter to each mode and concludes with how they might work together.This book has much to commend it: Sextus's text is clearly explained ... Read More

  • Locke's Ideas of Mind and Body by Han-Kyul Kim (review)
    • Abstract: In the brief space I have, I can provide only a quick taste of what the reader is in for with Han-Kyul Kim's Locke's Ideas of Mind and Body. Kim argues that his account of Locke's metaphysics of substance in terms of ideas of mind and body (nominal essences) makes sense of the relation between four crucial and often overlooked topics in Locke's philosophy: "(1) Locke's mind-body nominalism, (2) his epistemic humility, (3) his functionalist account of substrata, and (4) his naturalist approach to the human mind" (4). Kim opens in chapter 1 with a survey of various ontological doctrines (materialism, substance dualism, and property dualism) that have been associated with Locke and provides arguments that none are ...

  • The Imagination in German Idealism and Romanticism ed. by Gerad Gentry and
           Konstantin Pollok (review)
    • Abstract: In his introduction, Gerad Gentry notes that "the imagination is important not only because it is central to one of the most productive and influential periods in the history of philosophy, but also because it represents a topic of substantial relevance to contemporary debates in philosophy" (2). Readers with contemporary interests in the imagination who are looking for a general introduction to its treatment by German Idealists and Romantics will be disappointed. Most of the essays in this volume presuppose familiarity with the respective philosophers and their technical vocabularies. Specialists, especially those who work on German Idealism, will find much of interest in this volume, which is divided into three ... Read More

  • Experiment, Speculation, and Religion in Early Modern Philosophy ed. by
           Alberto Vanzo and Peter R. Anstey (review)
    • Abstract: This edited volume will be of interest to specialists in the history of early modern philosophy and in the history and philosophy of science. It contains ten chapters related to the themes of experimental philosophy, speculative philosophy, and the relationships of both to religion. Most of the book considers these themes in the thought of six early modern philosophers, with a chapter for each of the following: Bacon, Boyle, Cavendish, Hobbes, Locke, and Newton. The remaining chapters focus upon these themes by looking at particular debates or more broadly by considering contexts beyond those of the six aforementioned philosophers. The level of attention to detail by the authors in this book regarding how ... Read More

  • Curiosity and the Passions of Knowledge from Montaigne to Hobbes ed. by
           Gianni Paganini (review)
    • Abstract: This trilingual volume (English, French, and Italian) brings together the papers presented at the international conference held at the Accademia dei Lincei on October 7–8, 2015.The introduction, by Gianni Paganini, clearly identifies the gap that needs to be filled in the historical study of the notion of curiosity, particularly after Blumenberg's reference work, Der Prozess der theoretischen Neugierde (Suhrkamp, 1973), which passes over two major figures: Montaigne and Hobbes. The latter can in many ways be seen as "the most important theorist of curiosity in early modern philosophy, raising it to a typical characteristic of human nature, connecting it to the sciences, culture, and the arts, and making it the ...

  • The Pursuit of an Authentic Philosophy: Wittgenstein, Heidegger, and the
           Everyday by David Egan (review)
    • Abstract: The odyssey of twentieth-century philosophy has produced a number of ventures to find a way between the Scylla of continental and Charybdis of analytic philosophy. The pairing of Heidegger and Wittgenstein, arguably the greatest figures of each tradition, has been a particularly strong siren song to many on this quest, who have approached it from different angles.Egan uses Heidegger's explicit discussion of authenticity in his early work to bring out a similar idea implicit in Wittgenstein's later. Given their many parallels, Egan reasons, chances are good that an idea so central to the former could be found in the latter, were one to look at it in the right way. Thus, Egan uses Being and Time to enter previously ... Read More

  • Herder's Naturalist Aesthetics by Rachel Zuckert (review)
    • Abstract: Broadly speaking, naturalism can be described as a philosophical position or set of positions stating that nature is all there is and/or that philosophy, instead of relying on supernatural entities like God, can borrow all its explanatory tools from the sciences. It may seem surprising to search for its early representatives in a Protestant Enlightenment theologian such as Johann Gottfried Herder. But Rachel Zuckert deploys an impressive set of arguments to state her case and explain the premises of Herder's naturalism and its philosophical fruitfulness for his aesthetics.The book, in two parts, contains seven chapters. Part 1 is a systematic reconstruction of the theoretical claims of Herder's aesthetics. Part 2 ... Read More

  • Kant's Nonideal Theory of Politics by Dilek Huseyinzadegan (review)
    • Abstract: In this work the author attempts two, rather different, tasks in rethinking the nature of Kant's contributions to political philosophy. First, she argues that Kant's political writings depart methodologically from his critical writings on epistemology and morality. This is the significance of her use of the term 'nonideal theory' to designate the distinctive methodology that is supposedly operative in later Kantian texts such as part 1 of the Metaphysics of Morals, and especially the essays on enlightenment, world history, and war and peace. Second, she maintains that Kant's distinctive contributions to political philosophy derive not from entailments of his moral philosophy, but from specific theses he advocates ... Read More

  • Hegel's Transcendental Ontology by Giorgi Lebanidze (review)
    • Abstract: Giorgi Lebanidze's book is a welcome contribution to the literature on Hegel's logic and metaphysics. It provides a well-grounded account of the ontologico-metaphysical relevance of Hegel's thought, and locates it within a lucid reconstruction of recent debates. As the author argues in the introduction, two lines have dominated the English-speaking literature on Hegel in the last thirty years: an epistemological reading that brings Hegel close to Kant, and a metaphysical reading that decouples Hegel from Kant. Paradigmatic for the two readings are for Lebanidze Robert Pippin's groundbreaking Hegel's Idealism (1989) on the one side, and Robert Stern's Hegelian Metaphysics (2009) and Brady Bowman's Hegel and the ...

  • Nietzsche's Free Spirit Works: A Dialectical Reading by Matthew Meyer
           (review)
    • Abstract: Recent years have seen increased interest in Friedrich Nietzsche's middle period works, as scholars have turned to Human, All Too Human, Daybreak, and The Gay Science in exploring Nietzsche's turn toward naturalism and the roots of his mature criticisms of morality. Entering that conversation, Matthew Meyer offers an ambitious challenge to how we read these texts. Often viewed as a series of disconnected intellectual experiments that evince Nietzsche's rapid, not always linear, development over the period of their publication, the middle period works are, Meyer argues, instead best understood as a consciously constructed dialectical Bildungsroman or narrative of self-education. That is, without having every detail ... Read More

  • Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Adam Smith: A Philosophical Encounter by Charles
           L. Griswold (review)
    • Abstract: In this intricate, careful, and compelling book, Griswold stages an extended encounter between two towering figures of Enlightenment thought: Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Adam Smith. While Rousseau and Smith were known to each other, they had nothing like the "encounter" that Rousseau and David Hume had, for example. Smith commented on Rousseau's views, particularly those found in the Discourse on the Origins of Inequality, in his 1756 "Letter to the
      Authors of the Edinburgh Review" as well as in his The Theory of Moral Sentiments, and Rousseau shows up in Smith's correspondence with Hume, but beyond that there was little actual interaction between the two philosophers. However, Griswold's work is not to focus on the ... Read More

  • Philosophy and the Historical Perspective ed. by Marcel van Ackeren and
           Lee Klein (review)
    • Abstract: Philosophy and the Historical Perspective contains fourteen chapters, each of which is an attempt to enrich our conception of the relationship of analytical philosophy to history. Some chapters seek insight from the philosophical canon: Robert Pippin (chapter 10) offers an insightful discussion of Hegel's historiographical methodology, and Brian Leiter (chapter 11) presents aspects of Nietzsche's. Many of the chapters set research agendas that would deserve entire volumes. For instance, van Ackeren (chapter 4) asks whether there are transhistorical philosophical problems, and Thomas Grundmann (chapter 3) what philosophical progress looks like. Christof Rapp (chapter 7) casts doubt on the idea that hard-core ... Read More
