  2. Kenneth Dorter (2014). Indeterminacy and Moral Action in Laozi. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 13 (1):63-81.
    There is an apparent tension in Laozi 老子 between his denial of the adequacy of positive theoretical formulations and his concomitant endorsement of certain kinds of practical action over others. Laozi writes, for example, “Where they all know the good as good, there is evil, Therefore Being and non-being produce each other” (Laozi 2.3–5), which suggests that good and evil produce each other the way being and non-being produce each other; in which case to do good will lead to evil (...)

  3. Kenneth Dorter (2014). Thought and Expression in Spinoza and Shankara. Symposium: The Canadian Journal of Continental Philosophy 18 (1):215-235.
    Philosophers from traditions that are not only entirely different but apparently uninfluenced by each other sometimes show remarkable similarities. In the case of Spinoza and Shankara such similarities include the dual-aspect model according to which the apparent pluralism of the world rests on an inadequate perception of its oneness, and the way the overcoming of that inadequacy is conceived as a liberation from the passions and an achievement of immortality. A significant difference between the two, however, is that Spinoza's explanations (...)

    If Z hu Xi had been a western philosopher, we would say he synthesized the philosophies of Plato, Aristotle, and Plotinus: that he took from Plato the theory of forms, from Aristotle the connection between form and empirical investigation, and from Plotinus self-differentiating holism. But because a synthesis abstracts from the incompatible elements of its members, it involves rejection as well as inclusion. Thus, Z hu Xi does not accept the dualism by which Plato opposed to the rational forms an (...)

  8. Kenneth Dorter (2005). The Transformation of Plato's Republic. Lexington Books.
    Author Ken Dorter, in a passage-by-passage analysis traces Plato's depiction of how the most basic forms of human functioning and social justice contain the seed of their evolution into increasingly complex structures, as well as the seed of their degeneration. Dorter also traces Plato's tendency to begin an investigation with models based on rigid distinctions for the sake of clarity, which are subsequently transformed into more fluid conceptions that no longer sacrifice complexity and subtlety for clarity.

  10. Kenneth Dorter (2003). Free Will, Luck, and Happiness in the Myth of Er. Journal of Philosophical Research 28:129-142.
    According to the Myth of Er we are responsible for our character because we chose it before birth. But any choice is determined by our present character, sothere is an indefinite regress and we cannot be entirely responsible for our character. The Myth of Er can be seen as the first formulation of the problem of free will, which Aristotle demythologizes in Nicomachean Ethics III.5. Plato's solution is that freedom is compatible with causal determinism because it does not mean indeterminism (...)

    Nussbaum argues for welcoming life's messy conflicts rather than placing some values above others. Aristotle and plato are the respective champions of these alternatives: plato lovelessly advocates inflexible utilitarian rules, while aristotle champions pluralism and humanism. But nussbaum approaches these philosophers in precisely the manner that she rejects for life itself, reducing each to a one-dimensional principle and ignoring the "messy conflicts" that other parts of their texts create for her principle. She completely ignores the humane side of plato's thought (...)
