  • Opposites and Plato's Principle of Change in the Phaedo Cyclical
    • Abstract: at phaedo 70e6–71a7, Socrates proposes a number of examples of what he understands to be opposites as inductive support for Plato's principle of change, according to which opposites come to be from opposites.1 The interpretative issue that immediately arises is what conception of opposites applies to these various examples. In fact, this issue goes back as far as Syrianus, who asks, To what kind of opposites is Socrates referring'2 The aim of this paper is to provide a response to Syrianus's question. But it will take a little time to show that the examples Socrates has put forward are more confusing than enlightening as a source of information about the kind(s) of opposites he is introducing.Socrates begins with ...

  • Aristotle's Platonic Response to the Problem of First Principles
    • Abstract: how does one inquire into the truth of first principles' Where does one begin when deciding where to begin' Aristotle recognizes a series of difficulties when it comes to understanding the starting points of a scientific or philosophical system, and contemporary scholars have encountered their own difficulties in understanding his response. I will argue that Aristotle was aware of a Platonic solution that can help us uncover his own attitude toward the problem.Aristotle's central problem with first principles arises from the fact that they cannot be demonstrated in the same way as other propositions. Since demonstrations proceed from prior and better-known principles, if the principles themselves were in need of ... Read More

  • Suárez and Descartes on the Mode(s) of Union
    • Abstract: in a january 1642 letter, rené descartes (1596–1650) advises his correspondent—his then-follower, the Utrecht medical professor Henricus Regius—to consistently endorse the view that the human mind is related to its body by means of a "substantial union":Whenever the occasion arises, as much privately as publicly, you ought to profess that you believe a human to be a true ens per se and not per accidens and the mind to be really and substantially united to the body not through position or disposition [situm aut dispositionem], as you say in your last written text (for this again is subject to censure and, as for me, I judge it to be not true), but through a true mode of union [verum modum unionis], as everyone ...

  • Johann Christoph Sturm's Natural Philosophy: Passive Forms, Occasionalism,
           and Scientific Explanations
    • Abstract: In the third intermède of Le Malade Imaginaire (1673), Molière imagines a sort of medical convention in which "the wisest experts and professors of Medicine" examine whether a bachelor candidate can be deemed to enter the medical profession. As the first question in this examination, the "Chief physician" asks, "What is the cause and reason [causam et rationem] why opium induces sleep'" The candidate answers without the least hesitation: "Because it contains a sleeping virtue [virtus dormitiva], whose nature is to put the senses to sleep." The answer is followed by a jubilant reaction by the choir: "Good, good, good, he answers well, he is worthy of entering in our wise gild."1The scene is intended to be a ... Read More

  • Kant's Logic of Existence
    • Abstract: one of kant's most famous claims is his dictum about existence. In the course of his criticism of the ontological argument, he writes:Being is obviously not a real predicate, i.e., a concept of something that could be added to the concept of a thing.One reason why this passage is so famous is that many people think that it anticipates a discovery about the logical form of existence claims that was later central for the development of analytic philosophy and its project of overcoming metaphysical confusions by logical analysis. There are two prominent interpretations that read Kant's dictum along these lines. The first, and by far most popular, interprets Kant as holding a proto-Fregean view about existence.2 ... Read More

  • Husserl on Hallucination: A Conjunctive Reading
    • Abstract: One of Edmund Husserl's theoretical priorities throughout his philosophical career was to understand the nature of perceptual experience. His analyses of perceptual experience had a profound impact on subsequent thinkers in the phenomenological tradition, such as Aron Gurwitsch and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. Naturally, his account of perception remains a topic of discussion among Husserl scholars. Despite the attention it has received over many decades, Husserl interpreters diverge considerably in how they understand his views and their relation to current debates in the philosophy of perception. A case in point is Husserl's view on the relation between veridical perceptual experience and hallucination, which I will ... Read More

  • Structural Analysis and Dianoematics: The History (of the History) of
           Philosophy according to Martial Gueroult
    • Abstract: this paper offers a critical discussion of Martial Gueroult's (1891–1976) philosophical conception of the history of philosophy as a discipline. Gueroult was among the most influential French historians of philosophy in the twentieth century and the author of a long list of monographs on a host of modern philosophers. Gueroult's first book, on Maimon, was published in 1929, quickly followed in 1930 by a monograph on Fichte (the latter already undertaken while a prisoner of war in Germany during the First World War and completed as early as 1922). In the English-speaking world, he is probably best known for his two-volume Descartes selon l'ordre des raisons (1953) and the volumes on parts I and II of Spinoza's ... Read More

  • The Stoics on Lekta: All There Is To Say by Ada Bronowski (review)
    • Abstract: In this wide-ranging study, Ada Bronowski reconstructs the Stoic account of lekta. Usually translated into English as "sayables," lekta—Bronowski transliterates all key Greek terms—number among the Stoics' most contentious proposals in antiquity and remain the subject of interpretative disagreement today. One clear Stoic commitment is that lekta are what is signified by human speech: my utterance "Dion walks" in normal circumstances signifies the lekton 'Dion walks.' Are lekta to be understood, then, simply as meanings' And is the existence of lekta dependent on token utterances' No, claims Bronowski. 'Dion walks' is part of reality whether or not one utters "Dion walks." Lekta are "there to be said, but need not ... Read More

  • Die Ordnung der Welt: Darstellungsformen von Dynamik, Statik und Emergenz
           in Lukrez' De Rerum Natura by Eva Marie Noller (review)
    • Abstract: According to a testimony of Sextus Empiricus's Against the Physicists (M X 18–19), Epicurus began to study philosophy because his grammar teacher, dealing with the birth of Chaos in Hesiod's Theogony (116–17), was not able to explain what the cause and origin of Chaos were. If this evidence is reliable, the question of disorder was extremely significant for Epicurean philosophy. Usually, ancient pagan and Christian critics of materialistic philosophies accused Democritus and Epicurus of denying the power of providence. To Dante, Democritus is the philosopher who 'l mondo a caso pone (Inf. IV 136) in the sense that, according to the Atomist, the world derives from chance.Eva Marie Noller's book—specifically devoted ... Read More

  • Plato's Persona: Marsilio Ficino, Renaissance Humanism, and Platonic
           Traditions by Denis J.-J. Robichaud (review)
    • Abstract: Marsilio Ficino (1433–1499) was not only the first translator and commentator of Plato's and Plotinus's Opera omnia (as well as of numerous other works of the Neoplatonic tradition of late Antiquity). He also developed a fascinating and highly complex synthesis of Platonism, Christian doctrine, Renaissance magic, and medicine. Well beyond the sixteenth century, Ficino's texts were very influential. Over the past four decades, authors like Michael Allen, Brian Copenhaver, James Hankins, and Valery Rees (to name just a few of the most high-profile scholars from the Anglo-American world) have substantially increased our awareness of Ficino's intricate and substantial contributions to the Platonic tradition and ...

  • Spinoza and the Cunning of Imagination by Eugene Garver (review)
    • Abstract: How the arguments of Spinoza's Ethics work might seem obvious. Even if Spinoza's exposition is not perfect, and some suppressed premises might have to be recovered, it seems clear enough that the demonstrations are supposed to show, in Euclidian fashion, how truths about the basic structure of nature—as well as truths about how to live—follow from axioms and uncontroversial definitions. If readers keep their imagination and emotions from sullying their reasoning, they will see the force of the demonstrations and be convinced.In his engaging, highly original book, Garver argues that the Ethics is not a linear march through timeless truths, but rather a complicated drama that works precisely because its "characters," ...

  • Spinoza's Political Psychology: The Taming of Fortune and Fear by Justin
           Steinberg (review)
    • Abstract: In this ambitious and important book, Justin Steinberg attempts to explain the significance of the project for both contemporary political philosophy and the history of political thought. He argues that Spinoza offers a much-needed antidote against "ideal theory" in political philosophy. He also wants to expand our horizons concerning the context of Spinoza's political thought, primarily by noting the influence of Renaissance Civic Humanism. He argues for two main theses: the political works are continuous with the Ethics; and the role of the state is to help perfect the individual.The first chapter, "Metaphysical Psychology and Ingenia Formation," argues that (i) there is a human essence, which is nonetheless ...

  • The Skeptical Enlightenment: Doubt and Certainty in the Age of Reason ed.
           by Jeffrey D. Burson and Anton M. Matytsin (review)
    • Abstract: In the last half century, the image of the Enlightenment underwent many changes and no longer is monolithic, as was the case with Paul Hazard, Peter Gay, and Ernst Cassirer. It is usual nowadays to talk about national Enlightenments, moderate and radical Enlightenment, religious Enlightenments, counter-Enlightenment, and so on. In this process of widening the notion of Enlightenment, which the editors depict as a real "explosion," there is also room for a skeptical Enlightenment, which not so long ago was limited to a few, supposedly fringe figures: Bayle, Hume, and Rousseau. The ubiquitous "specter" of skepticism that Burson and Matytsin see as present all along the eighteenth century comprises also the reactions ... Read More

  • Kant on Laws by Eric Watkins (review)
    • Abstract: Kant on Laws is a collection of papers that Eric Watkins published from 1997 to 2018, "lightly rewritten," as he says, and accompanied with a new Introduction that states the general thesis that Kant has a univocal conception of law that applies to both laws of nature and the moral law. "Kant's most generic conception of law… includes two essential elements: (1) necessity and (2) the act of a spontaneous faculty whose legislative authority prescribes that necessity to a specific domain through an appropriate act" (2). These conditions are satisfied by both laws of nature and the moral law. They differ, however, in that laws of nature apply ultimately to objects that are given to us through ... Read More

  • Kant and the Science of Logic: A Historical and Philosophical
           Reconstruction by Huaping Lu-Adler (review)
    • Abstract: This stimulating book covers a wide range of topics concerning Kant and the history of logic, with the overall goal of specifying how Kant's various conceptions of logic developed out of that history. A first chapter on methodology argues that Kant is properly understood as negotiating a middle way (christened "critical eclecticism") between eclecticism and systematic philosophy. This is combined with the author's views on the proper method for our reconstruction of Kant's philosophy of logic, where her idea is that Kant's own critical eclecticism will provide the key to the latter. One issue that is never addressed is why this is not a sort of category error: even if Kant's own views on methodology had featured a ... Read More

  • A Spirit of Trust: A Reading of Hegel's Phenomenology by Robert B. Brandom
           (review)
    • Abstract: In order to be successful in philosophy, you must have the right kind of followers. Ideally, they should be able to perform either or both of these tasks: (1) to translate your teachings into an idiom that is accessible to an audience coming from different intellectual backgrounds, and/or (2) to integrate your philosophical message into a contemporary discourse in such a way that it proves to be productively connectable to what is discussed there. Kant was lucky enough to have had such ideal followers in abundance, both as exegetical interpreters and as modernizers of his ideas. They stretch from the post-Kantian idealists via the Neo-Kantians to twentieth-century epistemologists, moral philosophers, and ... Read More

  • Nietzsche in the Nineteenth Century: Social Questions and Philosophical
           Interventions by Robert C. Holub (review)
    • Abstract: What is the nineteenth century' If some historians of the "long" nineteenth century date its beginning back to 1750, does it end in 1900 or, as is said, in 1914 or, as one German historian reflects on the ongoing influence of the so-called "historical century," is it still ongoing' In continental philosophy, the nineteenth century seems to have a certain durability, to take the case of Slavoj Žižek and other Hegelians like Robert Pippin. Is Nietzsche representative of his own times' Or is he, as he himself says, "posthumous"' Robert C. Holub's book introduces Nietzsche as "The Timely Meditator" (1), the better to contradict what Holub describes as Nietzsche's "conscious effort to present himself as an 'untimely' ... Read More

  • Nietzsche's The Gay Science: An Introduction by Michael Ure (review)
    • Abstract: The works of Nietzsche's middle period tend to be neglected by Nietzsche scholars. Already, Michael Ure's first book, Nietzsche's Therapy (Lexington Books, 2008) was a welcome exception, and he continues his exploration in this new book, a study of the work Nietzsche called his most personal, The Gay Science (hereafter, GS).Nietzsche is right to call GS personal, and Ure is right to emphasize it. Its preface explains that Nietzsche wrote the text while recovering from long illness, and many of the first edition's 342 aphorisms allude to his personal experiences. Calling it a "philosophical autobiography" (1), as Ure does, is perhaps an overstatement. Nietzsche wrote one of those—Ecce Homo—and wild as that book is ... Read More

  • Conflict and Contest in Nietzsche's Philosophy ed. by Herman Siemens and
           James Pearson (review)
    • Abstract: This is an important volume on a topic that has gained increasing traction in recent Nietzsche scholarship. In it, fourteen authors—trained philosophers and Germanists—discuss the related themes of contest, conflict, war, and the Greek agon in Nietzsche's works. Although the quality of the contributions varies, there are enough substantive essays in the volume to ensure that it will be essential reading for subsequent studies on the subject.In the introduction, the editors claim that although Nietzsche's reflections on fundamental ontology are distinct from his interest in cultural institutions such as the Greek agon, they nevertheless provide important "background assumptions" for thinking about cultural ...

  • Heidegger's Moral Ontology by James D. Reid (review)
    • Abstract: In this lucid and engaging book focusing on the early Heidegger, James Reid argues that Heidegger sets the foundations for a "phronetic ethics" (22). As Reid later says, "Sein und Zeit could be said to make substantial contributions to 'meta-ethical' reflection on the source of our sense of why, on what basis, we take ourselves to be bound by one thing rather than another" (103). Reid's early Heidegger provides the hermeneutical tools for an ontological meta-ethics that can illuminate "normative questions and questions about the status of normativity as such" (2).Gleaning a meta-ethics from Heidegger depends on arguing that the existential analytic of Dasein proceeds from what Reid calls Heidegger's "ethical ...

  • Feminist History of Philosophy: The Recovery and Evaluation of Women's
           Philosophical Thought ed. by Eileen O'Neill and Marcy Lascano (review)
    • Abstract: This book, a collection of articles on women's contributions to the history of philosophy, can accurately be described as long-awaited. Originally conceived in, I gather, roughly its present form in 2006, it is now finally in 2019 reaching the light of day. Although unavoidable delays are always a pity, in this case the result is certainly worth the wait, and the significantly high quality of the volume has not been undercut by its belated appearance. In 2006, the editors secured contributions from most of the leading contributors to the field of women in the history of philosophy, and since twelve years is not all that long a time, they remain leading contributors. Anyone interested in teaching, writing about, or ... Read More
