Questioning Platonism (September 2004)
Continental Interpretations of Plato
Drew A. Hyland - Author

Explores interpretations of Plato by Heidegger, Derrida, Irigaray, Cavarero, and Gadamer.

Given the conception of philosophy held by continental thinkers, and in particular their greater sensitivity to the kinship of philosophy and literature, Drew A. Hyland argues that they should be much more attentive to the literary dimension of Plato's thinking than they have been. He believes they would find in the dialogues not...(Read More)

Kant on Causation
Kant on Causation (December 2003)
On the Fivefold Routes to the Principle of Causation
Steven M. Bayne - Author

An in-depth examination of the nature of Kant's causal principle.

Kant famously confessed that Hume's treatment of cause and effect woke him from his dogmatic slumber. According to Hume, the concept of cause does not arise through reason, but through force of habit. Kant believes this can be avoided through the development of a revolutionary new cognitive framework as presented in the Critique of Pure Reason. F...(Read More)
 
 
Understanding Understanding
Understanding Understanding (September 2003)
Richard Mason - Author

A study of the scope and limits of understanding.

How is understanding to be understood? Are there limits to understanding? What of importance, if anything, could lie beyond understanding? And do we need to understand knowledge before we can know about understanding? Richard Mason's argument is that a critical theory of understanding, modeled on past theories of knowledge, cannot be workable.

Although philosophy today has abandoned its former fascination with transcendent invisibles, it has left largely unexamined historical articulations of the divide between 'the visible' and 'the invisible.' Vision's Invisibles argues that such a self-examination is necessary fo...(Read More)

The Philosophic Origins of a Cultural Dilemma

Mind's separation from body has dominated philosophic thinking for millennia, yet most mental activities are now ex...(Read More)
 
 
Rousseau's Counter-Enlightenment
Rousseau's Counter-Enlightenment (January 2003)
A Republican Critique of the Philosophes
Graeme Garrard - Author

Sees Rousseau as the father of Counter-Enlightenment thought.
Arguing that the question of Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s relationship to the Enlightenment has been eclipsed and seriously distorted by his association with the French Revolution, Graeme Garrard presents the first book-length case that shows Rousseau as the pivotal figure in the emergence of Counter-Enlightenment thought. Viewed in the context in which he actually lived and wrote—...(Read More)
