    This paper aims at questioning Berkeley's formula: « I am not for changing things into ideas, but rather ideas into things ». It shows that the identification of ideas with things...

  • The Other as the Essence of Existence: A Journal of a Philosophical Passage to Altruism.Iraklis Ioannidis - 2019 - Dissertation, University of Glasgow
    This research is about altruism. In our first chapter, our quest to find whether we are essentially altruistic starts with questioning particular ways of inquiry and proposes a philosophy of unbracketing. In our second chapter, we realise that our proposal starts with an imperative – a prescription. We begin by meditating on the phenomenon of prescription which seems to precede all ways of inquiry. Our analysis of prescription reveals that altruism is to prescribe oneself towards an Other. This type of (...)

  • Descartes on Will and Suspension of Judgment: Affectivity of the Reasons for Doubt.Jan Forsman - 2017 - In Gábor Boros, Judit Szalai & Oliver Istvan Toth (eds.), The Concept of Affectivity in Early Modern Philosophy. Budapest, Hungary: pp. 38-58.
    In this paper, I join the so-called voluntarism debate on Descartes’s theory of will and judgment, arguing for an indirect doxastic voluntarism reading of Descartes, as opposed to a classic, or direct doxastic voluntarism. More specifically, I examine the question whether Descartes thinks the will can have a direct and full control over one’s suspension of judgment. Descartes was a doxastic voluntarist, maintaining that the will has some kind of control over one’s doxastic states, such as belief and doubt. According (...)

  • ‘Archetypes Without Patterns’: Locke on Relations and Mixed Modes.Walter Ott - 2017 - Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie 99 (3):300-325.
    John Locke’s claims about relations (such as cause and effect) and mixed modes (such as beauty and murder) have been controversial since the publication of the Essay. His earliest critics read him as a thoroughgoing anti-realist who denies that such things exist. More charitable readers have sought to read Locke’s claims away. Against both, I argue that Locke is making ontological claims, but that his views do not have the absurd consequences his defenders fear. By examining Locke’s texts, as well (...)

  • Berkeley: el papel de Dios en la teoría de la visión.Alberto Luis López - 2015 - Tópicos: Revista de Filosofía 49:27-52.
    Berkeley desarrolla su teoría de la visión en la obra de juventud Ensayo para una nueva teoría de la visión, que por lo general ha sido leída atendiendo sólo a sus aspectos científicos o perceptuales. En este artículo propongo una lectura distinta, que busca mostrar que el Ensayo no sólo atiende aspectos científicos sino, por el contrario, anticipa el inmaterialismo de obras posteriores. Esto lo hace porque Dios cumple un importante papel en él, lo cual se debe, entre otras cosas, (...)

  • The Significance of the Barrovian Case: The Barrovian Case is a Technical Problem, Hitherto Unsolved, Involving Either a Double Convex Lens or a Concave Mirror. The Problem, Due to Isaac Barrow and Reported by Berkeley in His New Theory of Vision, is That What is Seen in Certain Instances with These Devices Seems to Violate Historically Important Principles of Optics. One is the ‘Ancient Principle’ of Euclid That the Object Should Be Seen at the Intersection of the Refracted Ray with the Perpendicular of Incidence; the Other is the Principle Attributed to Kepler That the Perceived Distance of an Object Varies Indirectly with the Divergence of the Rays It Sends to the Eye. The Most Obvious Difficulty is That the Object Should Appear, Impossibly, Behind the Eye. As It Happens, Despite Some Strong Claims That Have Been Made About the Significance of the Problem, the Principles Generating It No Longer Have the Centrality in Optics They Were Once Thought to Have. But Even Accepting Them, Th. [REVIEW]Thomas M. Lennon - 2007 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 38 (1):36-55.

  • Why I Want to Be a Posthuman When I Grow Up.Nick Bostrom - manuscript
    Extreme human enhancement could result in “posthuman” modes of being. After offering some definitions and conceptual clarification, I argue for two theses. First, some posthuman modes of being would be very worthwhile. Second, it could be very good for human beings to become posthuman.

  • Francis Hutcheson, da beleza à perspectiva do desígnio.Lisa Broussois - 2014 - Discurso 44:97-126.
    O que é “a outra perspectiva nas obras da natureza”, de que fala Hutcheson? De que forma a beleza provê acesso a ela? O presente artigo discute o lugar dessa “outra perspectiva” na teoria estética de Francis Hutcheson. Trata-se de compreender por que o desígnio (design) surge do belo através de uma reflexão sobre a beleza em sua Investigação sobre a origem de nossas ideias da beleza e da virtude, de 1725. Buscaremos determinar se essa teoria estética estaria subordinada aos (...)

  • Subjectivity and Essential Individuality: A Dialogue with Peter Van Inwagen and Lynne Baker. [REVIEW]Roberta Monticelli - 2008 - Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences 7 (2):225-242.
    Each person is perceived by others and by herself as an individual in a very strong sense, namely as a unique individual. Moreover, this supposed uniqueness is commonly thought of as linked with another character that we tend to attribute\nto persons (as opposed to stones or chairs and even non-human animals): a kind of depth, hidden to sensory perception, yet in some measure accessible to other means of knowledge. I propose a theory of strong or essential individuality. This theory is (...)
