The Effectiveness of Causes
The Effectiveness of Causes (June 1985)
Dorothy Emmet - Author

The Effectiveness of Causes presents a strong view of causation seen as an operation between participants in events, and not as a relation holding between events themselves. In it, Emmet proposes that other philosophical views of cause and effect provide only a world of events, each of which is presented as an unchanging unit. Such a world, she contends, is a "Zeno universe," since transitions and movement are lost.

Emmet offers a mo...(Read More)

History and System
History and System (June 1984)
Hegel's Philosophy of History
Robert L. Perkins - Editor

A collection of this sort is a major achievement and that it is possible testifies to the quality of people involved with Hegel.

"History and System begins with a brilliant essay on the senses in which Hegel must be read as poetry. It ends with a prizewinning essay by Richard Winfield on Hegel's economic theory, an essay likely to provoke considerable controversy. In between are major essays by David Walsh, Schlomo Avineri, Me...(Read More)
 
 
Husserl and Heidegger
Husserl and Heidegger (June 1984)
The Question of a Phenomenological Beginning
Timothy J. Stapleton - Author

The phenomenology of Edmund Husserl has decisively influenced much of contemporary philosophy. Yet Husserl's philosophy has come under such criticism that today it is viewed as little more than a historical relic. One of the most important and influential critiques of Husserl's transcendental phenomenology was launched by Martin Heidegger in Being and Time, which radically reinterpreted phenomenology.

Timothy Stapleton returns to the...(Read More)
 
 
Individuals and Individuality
Individuals and Individuality (June 1984)
Brian John Martine - Author

Individuals and Individuality criticizes Hegel's theory of dialectic for eliminating the possibility of irreducible individuality. The argument then goes on to defend and expand Peirce's theory of firstness, secondness, and thirdness as a more nearly adequate account of individuality. The discussion culminates with an interpretation of art as illustrating the essence of individuality.

Brian John Martine lays a foundation for a more com...(Read More)

Quine on Ontology, Necessity, and Experience
Quine on Ontology, Necessity, and Experience (June 1984)
A Philosophical Critique
Ilham Dilman - Author

This study is a critique of Quine's views on three interrelated topics that figure prominently in his work and on which he has developed very distinctive opinions. Dr. Dilman provides detailed criticism of these views and contrasts them with Wittgenstein's understanding of the same topics. Throughout this systematic analysis, the author questions basic assumptions on which the Quinean edifice rests.

The book argues that Quine's notion of on...(Read More)
