  • Of "Just Compassion": Sympathy, Justice, and the French Exiles in
           Charlotte Smith's The Emigrants

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Charlotte Smith's call for "just compassion" in The Emigrants (1793)1 illuminates the delicacy of the subject of French emigrants and her complex attitude toward the exiles during the French Revolution. Across the Channel in Britain, the incidence of emigration, which started immediately after the storming of the Bastille in July 1789, caused fierce discussion in the country and to a certain extent shaped the British responses to the French Revolution. In contrast to her previous poetic work, Elegiac Sonnets, which focuses on personal sorrow, Smith's much more politicized The Emigrants, as Monica Hart comments, "positions Smith as an active participant in political debate, a socially conscious woman" keenly ...

  • Thoreau's "Life without Principle" and the Art of Living and Getting a
           Living

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the final year of Henry David Thoreau's life, his health and productivity steadily declined as tuberculosis ravaged his body and robbed him of the simple pleasures of a life well lived: long walks in nature, conversing with friends, and writing in his journal. Out of these dark days came a glimmer of hope. In February 1862, Thoreau received word that James T. Fields—who had replaced his nemesis, James Russell Lowell, as editor of the Atlantic Monthly—wanted Thoreau to submit his work for publication. Despite his poor health, Thoreau, with the aid of his sister Sophia, worked diligently to shape his most important lectures into publishable material. Facing death, the poet philosopher had one last chance to share ... Read More

  • Frankenstein, the Frankfurt School, and the Domination of Nature

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "You are my creator, but I am your master;In much the same way that the fable of Prometheus is woven through the text of Frankenstein, the myth of Mary Shelley's Creature can rightfully be called the ethical touchstone of modern science. From "Frankenfoods" to stem cell research to organ transplants, the novel has been and continues to be invoked as a cautionary tale. Just as Promethean fire illuminates and warms but may burn if one gets too close, science itself can be salutary if used judiciously yet deadly if employed blindly.Broadly, the reading of the novel by the scientific community maps onto critical academic work that has carefully appraised Shelley's treatment of science in the novel. Anne Mellor2 and ... Read More

           Frankenstein

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In her Vindication of the Rights of Woman, Mary Shelley's mother, Mary Wollstonecraft, lauds beauty as she sees it embodied in the educated "daughters of men." Here, Wollstonecraft responds to the philosopher and statesman Edmund Burke's aesthetic of beauty in his treatise, A Philosophic Enquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful. Famously, Burke characterizes the beauty of women as entirely "owing to their weakness, or delicacy," "enhanced by their timidity, a quality of mind analogous to it."1 In opposition to his praise of weakness, delicacy, and timidity in women, Wollstonecraft advocates for their "dignified beauty," as formed principally through cultivation and strength of ...

  • To Live a Meaningful Life: Reading Mary Shelley's Frankenstein through
           Heideggerian Techne

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The question of "being" (Sein) for Martin Heidegger is complicated. Wrapped up in time, like an ontological fabric of space-time, being exists as such in terms of inextricable webs of individual perceptions and interpretations of everyday events that mark time's passing. But for both Heidegger and the Romantics, how time passes depends upon the individual subject, specifically, the motivations that undergird a subject's behaviors. Heidegger deals with Dasein's motivations in terms of how Dasein approaches technology—namely as either an "instrument," a mere "means to an end," or as a "bringing-forth," i.e., "poiesis." The difference between these two approaches is paramount to whether or not Dasein is being ... Read More

  • Even Better Than the Real Thing: Dostoevsky's Absurd Realism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For most of the reading public, Fyodor Dostoevsky's reputation lies beyond reproach. Credible authorities place his works on lists compiling the greatest books ever written, and educators continue to assign his novels. Sources influential in popular culture also document his lasting appeal; Wikipedia's entry on Dostoevsky cites a panoply of star-studded endorsements from Einstein to Nietzsche, Joyce to Kafka.He has notable detractors, however. Among them ranks one of the English language's preeminent stylists, a Russian-born author and critic whose mastery of Russian literature makes him uniquely suited to dispense judgment. No one less than Vladimir Nabokov, author of the exquisitely crafted Lolita, considers ... Read More

  • Wittgenstein and Dostoevsky: Happiness and Subjectivity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In his memoir of Ludwig Wittgenstein, Norman Malcolm recalls a conversation in which the philosopher purportedly stated that he had scorned religion in adolescence, but he had changed his mind at twenty-one under the influence of a certain event. Specifically, when in Vienna, he saw a performance in which one of the protagonists said he believed that whatever occurred in the world, he would not get in harm's way, that he was not in the least dependent either on fate or circumstances. Malcolm writes, "Wittgenstein was struck by this stoic thought; for the first time he saw the possibility of religion. He said that during his service in the First War he came across Tolstoy's writings on the Gospels, which made a ... Read More

  • In Defense of Abstract Creationism: A Recombinatorial Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As a version of creationism—which claims that fictional charac- ters are created by authors who write characters into existence by penning their names in their works—abstract creationism claims that fictional objects are abstract entities. However, I want to modify the conception of what constitutes a fictional object. In short, I am going to give a defense of abstract creationism that offers answers to the questions, as outlined by Stuart Brock, of ontology, identity, and plenitude by developing a claim that—except for rigidly referring proper names—fictional terms and nonfictional terms are all abstract objects.Working off the debates surrounding abstract creationism, and with a nod to D. M. Armstrong's ... Read More

      Abstract: This morning, as I ate breakfast, I started David Foster Wallace's short story "Good People."1 I began. … Wait a minute! Damn it! Why not Wallace's, or David Wallace's short story' I've never seen nor heard his name other than as a trio; the same is so with others, such as Louisa May Alcott, William Carlos Williams, Joyce Carol Oates, Robert Louis Stevenson, Katherine Anne Porter, et al. One finds it even in operas—for example, in Giacomo Puccini's Turandot we have Ping, Pang, and Pong, who rarely solo or sing duets. And consider the Christian or Hindu trinities as being clearly acknowledged as further instances of the power of three names, as well as the three ancient Greek gods of Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades; the ...

  • The Logic of Sentiment: Stowe, Hawthorne, and Melville by Kenneth Dauber

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As a work of philosophically grounded literary criticism in the tradition of Stanley Cavell's ordinary language philosophy, Kenneth Dauber's The Logic of Sentiment: Stowe, Hawthorne, and Melville will be an altogether welcomed book among those for whom it is more instructive to think sentimentality alongside literary authors than to merely historicize—to "archeologize" or "genealogize"—it from an all-too-safe critical distance. Though primarily a book on sentiment, its theoretical through line is to think skepticism outside of the epistemological, to think it in "nonepistemological terms" (p. 8). In line with what he elsewhere calls "ordinary language criticism," Dauber throughout the book follows the example of ... Read More

  • German Romantic Philosophy: "Underhand Theology"'

      Abstract: In Der Antichrist, which is defined in its subtitle as "Fluch auf das Christentum" (a curse on Christianity), Friedrich Nietzsche scathingly summarizes his contempt for what he regards as "the religion of sympathy."1 "I condemn Christianity; I raise against the Christian church the most terrible of all accusations that an accuser ever took into his mouth. It is for me the highest of all conceivable corruptions; it has had the desire to bring about the ultimate possible corruption. The Christian church has left nothing untouched by its depravity; it has made a disvalue of every value, a lie of every truth, a spiritual vileness of all honesty" (1234; §62). (Worth stressing is the fact that Nietzsche's attack is ... Read More

  • Making Sense of Suffering: Merleau-Ponty and Keats's "Vale of Soul-Making"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1819, John Keats, in a letter to his brother and sister-in-law, George and Georgiana, ponders, "How far by the persevering endeavours of a seldom appearing Socrates Mankind may be made happy" in spite of haunting mortality.1 For Keats, Socrates's capability of letting the happiness of a virtuous life allay the fear of death seems a rarity. Death lurks in every living moment and is brought to mind by sickness and pain, so the pressing question for Keats is whether possible meanings exist behind suffering. Religiously skeptical, Keats does not divert his attention from the present earthly existence to the hereafter to procure a ready answer. Instead of striving after an ascribed meaning of suffering as in ... Read More

  • Jealousy and the Sense of Self: Unamuno and the Contemporary Philosophy of
           Emotion

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Miguel de Unamuno was a prolific writer whose interests spanned a range of fields. The thematic spectrum of his writings includes moral psychology, aesthetics, and philosophy of religion, as well as epistemology and ethics. Yet this vast and varied philosophical production can be seen as an attempt to answer a single question: "What is the human being'" This anthropological concern draws together Unamuno's multifarious investigations into the possibility of knowledge, of action, and of hope. However, to answer this question, he does not embark upon a journey into abstract metaphysical considerations; rather, Unamuno focuses on "the man of flesh and bone," the one who is born, suffers, and dies.1 To this end, in his ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Louis MacNeice was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and educated in England at the Sherborne Preparatory School for Boys, Marlborough College, and Merton College, Oxford (where he won a "double first" in classics and philosophy). He taught classics at Birmingham University and Bedford College for Women before becoming a writer and producer of radio dramas for the BBC. Although he wrote no philosophical essays as such, many of his poems make use of philosophical material. This is true, for example, of his "Variation on Heraclitus":The poem's final line echoes the passage in the Cratylus, in which Plato attributes "the doctrine of flux or universal change" to the philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus:Heraclitus says ...

  • From the Margin a Silent Tick: On the Traces of Performative Judgment in
           Literary Works

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Consider the following, curious passage from Terry Eagleton's otherwise appreciative review of Anne Enright's novel The Green Road. Eagleton describes the book's central focus, the Madigan family. He pays particular attention to the family matriarch, Rosaleen, "a solitary, self-lacerating, deviously histrionic woman, who hates her children and hungers for them." In "less dexterous authorial hands," Eagleton writes, Rosaleen might easily "lapse into a stage-Irish mother." But in Enright's, she is "brought magnificently to life." Enright's depiction of Rosaleen's daughter, Hanna, comes in for praise as well. But then Eagleton turns his attention to her sons. What of Emmet' "Enright never quite succeeds in realising ...

      Abstract: When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.Suppose you were brought up in a school of child-rearing that pictures the world as a threat to the young and shields them accordingly. What happens when you grow up' That's the question examined in Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt's much-discussed Coddling of the American Mind, a study of the generation of college students born around 1995 whose demands for security led to what are now known as safe spaces and trigger warnings. Contending that the excessive protection that iGen (the internet generation) enjoyed as children distorted their cognition, made them hypersensitive to ... Read More

  • Montaigne's Perfect Friendship and Perfect Society: Philosophical Fictions
           as Useful Reminders

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "De l'amitié" ("Of friendship") is one of Michel de Montaigne's most-read essays, and also one of his strangest. In it Montaigne flatly contradicts what seem to be basic principles of his thought throughout the rest of the Essais. Moreover, at the beginning of the essay he announces that it will be followed by a political treatise written by the friend whom he celebrates in "De l'amitié," Étienne de La Boétie, and that the treatise, La Servitude Volontaire (Voluntary Servitude), will function as the centerpiece of book 1 of the Essais. But at the end of the essay he explains that he has since changed his mind, and will not print La Boétie's treatise after all. Instead, in the first edition of the Essais, Montaigne ... Read More
