    Jonathan Cottrell (forthcoming). A Puzzle About Fictions in the 'Treatise'. Journal of the History of Philosophy.
    I present a conflict involving Hume’s claim that certain “fictions of the imagination”—like that of an unchangeable, yet enduring object—are “improper,” “inexact” or not “strict.” I argue that this claim is inconsistent with other commitments that Hume has, concerning how the imagination produces fictions and how we form general representations. I consider several ways in which he is likely to respond to this argument, and argue that he cannot consistently accept any of them. I conclude that we face an unsolved (...)

    Corey W. Dyck (forthcoming). Spontaneity Before the Critical Turn: Crusius, Tetens, and the Pre-Critical Kant on the Spontaneity of the Mind. Journal of the History of Philosophy.
    Kant’s introduction in the Kritik der reinen Vernunft (KrV) of a spontaneity proper to the understanding is often thought to be one of the central innovations of his Critical philosophy. As I show in this paper, however, a number of thinkers within the 18th century German tradition in the time before the KrV (including the pre-Critical Kant himself) had already developed a robust conception of the spontaneity of the mind, a conception which, in many respects lays the groundwork for Kant’s (...)

    David Forman (forthcoming). Kant’s Moderate Cynicism and the Harmony Between Virtue and Worldly Happiness. Journal of the History of Philosophy.
    For Kant, any authentic moral demands are wholly distinct from the demands of prudence. This has led critics to complain that Kantian moral demands are incompatible with our human nature as happiness-seekers. Kant’s defenders have pointed out, correctly, that Kant can and does assert that it is permissible, at least in principle, to pursue our own happiness. But this response does not eliminate the worry that a life organized around the pursuit of virtue might turn out to be one from (...)

    Julia Jorati (forthcoming). Three Types of Spontaneity and Teleology in Leibniz. Journal of the History of Philosophy.
    Leibniz holds that all substances are spontaneous, that is, that all states of a given substance originate within it. Several commentators distinguish two kinds of spontaneity. This paper sharpens and expands this distinction by arguing that we need to distinguish not just two, but three types of spontaneity. This in turn sheds light on Leibniz’s otherwise puzzling views on teleology. The paper argues that there is an intimate connection between spontaneity and teleology and that a type of teleology corresponds to (...)

    Julie Walsh & Eric Stencil (forthcoming). Malebranche on the Metaphysics and Epistemology of Particular Volitions. Journal of the History of Philosophy.
    In this paper, we consider the metaphysics and epistemology of God's particular volitions in Malebranche's philosophy. We focus, in particular, on three candidates of instances of divine particular volitions: creation, original sin, and the Incarnation. We argue that only with an understanding of both the nature of particular volitions and the conditions under which it is possible to have knowledge about the kinds of volitions by which God acts can we appreciate the intersection among the three central features of Malebranche's (...)
