    Brian A. Chance (forthcoming). Locke, Kant, and the Possibility of Synthetic A Priori Cognition. Kant Yearbook 7.
    This paper attempts to shed light on three sets of issues that bear directly on our understanding of Locke and Kant. The first is whether Kant believes Locke merely anticipates his distinction between analytic and synthetic judgments or also believes Locke anticipates his notion of synthetic a priori cognition. The second is what should we as readers of Kant and Locke should think about Kant’s view whatever it turns out to be, and the third is the nature of Kant’s justification (...)

    Gabriel Rockhill (2010). Logique de l'histoire: pour une analytique des pratiques philosophiques. Editions Hermann.
    Philosopher, c’est, pense-t-on, faire de l’histoire de la philosophie ; c’est lire et interpréter les textes canoniques des grands penseurs de la tradition européenne en suivant l’enchaînement des idées depuis les Grecs anciens. Cette manière de pratiquer la philosophie est devenue tellement naturelle qu’elle en a oublié sa propre historicité. D’où la nécessité de la mettre en évidence en examinant de près ses multiples conséquences. C’est justement un des objectifs de l’analytique des pratiques philosophiques entreprise dans le présent ouvrage. -/- (...)

    Andrew Blom (2016). Grotius and Aristotle: The Justice of Taking Too Little. History of Political Thought 36 (1):84-112.
    The theory of justice that Hugo Grotius developed in De Jure Belli ac Pacis (The Law of War and Peace, 1625) set itself against a certain reading of Aristotle, according to which justice is conceived of as a mean between taking too much and taking too little. I argue that we can best understand the implications of Grotius' mature conception by considering the ends to which he had deployed this Aristotelian notion in his earlier work. Grotius came to perceive that (...)

    Miren Boehm (2013). The Normativity of Experience and Causal Belief in Hume’s Treatise. Hume Studies 39 (2):203-231.
    What is the source of normativity in Hume’s account of causal reasoning? In virtue of what are causal beliefs justified for Hume? To answer these questions, the literature appeals, almost invariably, to custom or some feature thereof. I argue, in contrast, that causal beliefs are justified for Hume because they issue from experience. Although he denies experience the title of justifying reason, for Hume experience has normative authority. I offer an interpretation of the source and nature of the normativity of (...)

    Tina Baceski (2013). Hume on Art Critics, Wise Men, and the Virtues of Taste. Hume Studies 39 (2):233-256.
    In this paper I compare two models of expert judgment: the art critic in Hume’s “Of the Standard of Taste” and the “wise man” in “Of Miracles.” The art critic is a true judge of beauty because he has made himself into a person who is optimally receptive to beauty. He possesses the virtues of taste: “Strong sense, united to delicate sentiment, improved by practice, perfected by comparison, and cleared of all prejudice” . But the virtues of the art critic, (...)

    Jon Charles Miller (2013). Hume’s Citation of Strabo and the Dating of the Memoranda. Hume Studies 39 (2):197-202.
    In this discussion note, I put forth evidence to argue against the recent assertions made in favor of the late-1740s or early-1750s date for the composition of Hume’s memoranda. In particular, I show that the claims made regarding Hume’s reference to Strabo in the memoranda do not provide evidence for such a late date of composition but, rather, provide evidence for the date of composition being considerably earlier.

    Does fear enable or unable action? Could the writings of a 17th century Portuguese religious woman contribute to the emergence of a subjectivity that empowers women and intellectual production? -/- In my PhD thesis I conducted a multilayered study on Joana de Jesus, a Cistercian nun who lived in Portugal in two convents and wrote about her daily life, the divine encounters she had with Christ and the knowledge she acquired through those mystical contacts. Joana de Jesus’s teachings were deeply (...)

    Lorne Falkenstein (2013). Hume on the Idea of a Vacuum. Hume Studies 39 (2):131-168.
    Hume had two principal arguments for denying that we can have an idea of a vacuum, an argument from the non-entity of unqualified points and an argument from the impossibility of forming abstract ideas of manners of disposition. He also made two serious concessions to the opposed view that we can indeed form ideas of vacua, namely, that bodies that have nothing sensible disposed between them may permit the interposition of other bodies without any apparent motion or occlusion and that (...)

    Anders Kraal (2013). Anglicanism, Scottish Presbyterianism, and the Irreligious Aim of Hume’s Treatise. Hume Studies 39 (2):169-196.
    According to Paul Russell’s irreligious interpretation of Hume’s Treatise, the aim of the Treatise is to discredit “Christian theology” generically construed. In this paper, I argue that in seeking to discredit Christian theology in the Treatise, Hume uses an early eighteenth-century Anglican version of Christian theology rather than “Christian theology” in a generic sense as his theological paradigm. Taking Hume’s attacks on “hidden powers” and “the liberty of indifference” as test-cases, I show that whereas Hume’s views on these topics are (...)

    Andre C. Willis (2015). The Potential Use-Value of Hume's ‘True Religion. Journal of Scottish Philosophy 13 (1):1-15.
    Many hold that Hume was an atheist, that he despised the church, and that he was a devastating critic of religion. One cannot deny, however, the references to ‘true religion’ in his work, his sometimes seemingly favorable references to Deity, his call for religion in ‘every civilized community’, and his sense of ‘natural belief’. The following essay describes a speculative Humean ‘true religion’ and discusses its potential use-value for contemporary philosophy of religion. It begins, anecdotally, with a description of Hume's (...)

    Curtis Sommerlatte (forthcoming). Empirical Cognition in the Transcendental Deduction: Kant’s Starting Point and His Humean Problem. Kantian Review.
    In this paper, I argue that in the sense of greatest epistemological concern for Kant, empirical cognition is “rational sensory discrimination”: the identification or differentiation of sensory objects from each other (whether correctly or not), occurring through a capacity to become aware of and express judgments (whether correct or not) on the basis of which she identifies or differentiates objects. With this account of empirical cognition, I show how the transcendental deduction of the first Critique is most plausibly read as (...)

    Shane D. Courtland (2015). Hobbesian Right to Healthcare. Journal of Applied Philosophy 32 (2).
    Over the last few years we have had a debate regarding the role of government in providing healthcare. There has been a question as to whether or not the state's proper role requires protection of its subjects from the calamities associated with a lack of healthcare. In this article, I will argue that straightforward Hobbesian principles require the state to provide healthcare. It might seem odd that such a positive right can be justified by a philosopher who famously conceives of (...)

    Markus Kohl (2015). Kant on Freedom of Empirical Thought. Journal of the History of Philosophy 23 (2):301-26.
    It is standardly assumed that, in Kant, “free agency” is identical to moral agency and requires the will or practical reason. Likewise, it is often held that the concept of “spontaneity” that Kant uses in his theoretical philosophy is very different from, and much thinner than, his idea of practical spontaneity. In this paper I argue for the contrary view: Kant has a rich theory of doxastic free agency, and the spontaneity in empirical thought (which culminates in judgments of experience) (...)

    Although Husserl never engaged with Hobbes’ thinking, this essay explores the intriguing contrasts and differences between Husserl’s and Hobbes’ accounts of perception, imagination, judgment, knowledge, and metaphysics. Even if Husserl never developed a political philosophy, Husserl’s metaphysics of knowledge can be put into service of a more classical conception of citizenship in contrast to Hobbes’ view of the Leviathan.

    This paper surveys historical and recent philosophical discussions of the relations between imagination and creativity. In the first two sections, it covers two insufficiently studied analyses of the creative imagination, that of Kant and Sartre, respectively. The next section discusses imagination and its role in scientific discovery, with particular emphasis on the writings of Michael Polanyi, and on thought experiments and experimental design. The final section offers a brief discussion of some very recent work done on conceptual relations between imagination (...)
