  1. Douglas Lewis (2007). Spinoza on Having a False Idea. Metaphysica 8 (1):17-27.
    Naturalism pervades Spinoza’s doctrines of The Ethics, but the contours of it often bewilder us. In this light, I consider the account of falsity, or having a false idea, as presented by Spinoza in Proposition thirty_five of the Second Part, its demonstration, and the subsequent note. Based on my interpretation I argue for the claim that his account has coherence and makes sense. Further, I examine the significance of what Spinoza says about falsity for comprehension of his philosophy overall, especially (...)

  2. Douglas Lewis (2003). Locke and the Problem of Slavery. Teaching Philosophy 26 (3):261-282.
    In John Locke’s “Two Treatises of Government”, Locke defends a doctrine of universal rights along with a principle of liberty that rejects hereditary chattel slavery. While rejecting the practice of slavery at a theoretical level, Locke was nevertheless involved in ventures that show a commitment to the practice of slavery, e.g. his role in writing the “Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina”, a document sanctioning African slavery in Carolina. In contrast to recent interpreters who claim to reconcile Locke’s stance on universal rights (...)

  3. Douglas Lewis (1999). Marie de Gournay and the Engendering of Equality. Teaching Philosophy 22 (1):53-76.
    This paper exposits and defends the ideas of Marie de Gournay , a Parisian essayist and literary critic. Reading her as an early feminist, the author argues that Gournay’s work merits far more attention than it has received, especially her arguments which track the social formation of sex, her conscious opposition to male defamation of and mistreatment of women, and her appreciation of how male misogyny reflects the social privilege of the men who advance it. Gournay’s true genius, however, lies (...)

  4. Lisa Bergin, Douglas Lewis, Michelle Martinez, Anne Phibbs & Pauline Sargent (1998). Black Elk Speaks, John Locke Listens, and the Students Write. Teaching Philosophy 21 (1):35-59.
    This paper details the experience of planning, orchestrating, teaching, and participating in a writing-intensive, team-taught, introductory philosophy class designed to expand the diversity of voices included in philosophical study. Accordingly, this article includes the various perspectives of faculty, TAs, and students in the class. Faculty authors discuss the administrative side of the course, including its planning and goals, its texts and structure, its working definition of “philosophy,” its balance of canonical and non-canonical texts, the significant resistance met in getting the (...)

    Many philosophers have maintained that secondary qualities are private mental entities. In this paper I use the discussions of H. A. Prichard, Berkeley and G. E. Moore on the status of secondary qualities to bring out the assumptions that underlie this view. One of these is that secondary qualities are particular. I show that Prichard holds these assumptions and then I attempt to diagnose why he holds them. In the course of this diagnosis I explore several senses of 'dependent' which (...)
