    How do we perceive cultural affordances? [orig. Hoe nemen we culturele affordances waar?].Anco Peeters - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (3):393-397.
    Cognitive scientists typically explain cognitive processes in groups from the study of the individual. Even researchers who recognize that our cognition is inherently situated and cannot be understood without placing it in a social context take the individual as the starting point for looking at group processes. It is reason for Robert Wilson (2004) to argue for 'group minds'. With this he creates room for the idea that certain group processes cannot solely be explained as the sum of the individual (...)

    Habermas’ Receptie van Het Denken van Hegel En Marx in Auch Eine Geschichte der Philosophie.Paul Cobben - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (2):303-318.
    Habermas’s reception of Hegel’s and Marx’s thinking in Auch eine Geschichte der Philosophie According to Habermas, Hegel has contributed to the development of the paradigm of speech-philosophy insofar as he transformed Kant’s noumenal subject into a free subject that is related to the lifeworld. By interpreting the unity of the lifeworld by means of a philosophical conceptualization of the religious cultus, however, he re-introduces a metaphysical approach in philosophy. Habermas praises Marx because he made this metaphysical approach of the lifeworld (...)

    Omnis Determinatio Est Negatio.Maria Kardaun - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (2):235-248.
    Omnis Determinatio est Negatio. On Habermas, Myth, and Truth With his monumental genealogy of Western philosophy Jürgen Habermas delivers an achievement that is worthy of great praise. In carefully constructed arguments he presents in detail the close connection between, and the mutual indebtedness of, religion and philosophy as they developed in the West for more than two millennia. With regard to the current state of affairs he acknowledges that we should continue to engage with subjects such as purpose, meaningfulness, and (...)

    Westerse Filosofie En de Koorddans Tussen Geloof En Weten.Pieter Pekelharing - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (2):221-234.
    Western philosophy and the tightrope between faith and knowledge In Auch eine Geschichte der Philosophie, Habermas develops a new view of the history of philosophy. Dating philosophy back to the axial age, he presents its history as the result of a collective learning process, spanning a period of three millennia. In this new approach he highlights the crucial importance of faith and religion which resulted in a specific constellation of belief and knowledge that, though unique to the West, has universal (...)

    Logica modernorum. A critical note on Habermas’s portrait of medieval philosophy In his monumental history of philosophy, the eminent scholar Jürgen Habermas has managed to provide us with a thorough and very nuanced overview of thousands of years of western thought. The famous philosopher paints an impressive picture of the vicissitudes of the modernisation processes featuring in the history of western philosophy. The Leitmotiv of Habermas’s narrative is the way in which throughout history philosophy dealt with the question concerning the (...)

    Habermas Over Genealogie, Metafysica En Godsdienst.Henning Tegtmeyer - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (2):263-277.
    Habermas on genealogy, metaphysics and religion Habermas’s impressive history of philosophy presents itself both as a comprehensive account of the history of Western philosophy from its beginning to the 19th century and as a genealogy of post-metaphysical thinking. In this paper I argue that this twofold goal creates a serious methodological problem. I also find Habermas’s understanding of metaphysics unclear and partly misguided. If that is correct it has consequences not only for the very notion of post-metaphysical thinking but also (...)

    Pas de Deux Met Een Theologische Erfenis.Geert Van Eekert - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (2):279-301.
    Pas de deux with a theological legacy. Jürgen Habermas on David Hume and Immanuel Kant In his latest opus magnum, Jürgen Habermas reconsiders the history of philosophy from a peculiar perspective: the true and unique nature of philosophy is shown to have been given shape in philosophy’s dispute with Christian theology. This article reviews Habermas’ chapter on the Enlightenment, in which Habermas casts David Hume and Immanuel Kant dancing their own pas de deux with that theological legacy. After having sketched (...)

    ‘Faith and knowledge’ in Auch eine Geschichte der Philosophie. On the Role of Philosophy in Post-Secular Society This article focuses on three aspects that might clarify the quintessence of Habermas’ position regarding the relation between faith and knowledge in his book, Auch eine Geschichte der Philosophie. First, a concise overview is given of the role of this specific theme in Habermas’ oeuvre as a whole, that may help to illuminate why his so-called shift with regard to the relation between faith (...)

    Who’s the greatest of them all? A non-technical explication of Newton’s method in the Principia accompanied by some philosophical reflectionsIn this essay, I seek to explicate the methodology which Newton used in the Principia in a non-technical way. Close attention will be paid to some important results in Books I and III of the Principia and to Newton’s argument for universal gravitation. Based on their discussion, Newton’s key inferential strategies will be brought to the fore. In addition, it will be (...)

    Beloften En Teleurstellingen van Artificiële Intelligentie Voor Wetenschappelijke Ontdekkingen.Albrecht Heeffer - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (1):55-80.
    Promises and disappointments of artificial intelligence for scientific discoveryRecent successes within Artificial Intelligence with deep learning techniques in board games gave rise to the ambition to apply these learning methods to scientific discovery. This model for discovering new scientific laws is based on data-driven generalization in large databases with observational data using neural networks. In this study we want to review and critical assess an earlier research programme by the name of BACON. Though BACON was based on different AI technology, (...)

    Gregor Mendel, Thomas Hunt Morgan En Experimenten in de Klassieke Genetica.Bert Leuridan - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (1):107-135.
    Gregor Mendel, Thomas Hunt Morgan and experiments in classical geneticsIn the middle of the 19th century, Gregor Mendel performed a series of crosses with pea plants to investigate how hybrids are formed. Decades later, Thomas Hunt Morgan finalized the theory of classical genetics. An important aspect of Mendel’s and Morgan’s scientific approach is that they worked in a systematic, experimental fashion. But how did these experiments proceed? What is the relation between these experiments and Mendel’s and Morgan’s explanatory theories? What (...)

    Hoe Zeker is Heisenbergs Onzekerheidsprincipe?Jeanne Peijnenburg & David Atkinson - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (1):137-156.
    How certain is Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle?Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle is at the heart of the orthodox or Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. We first sketch the history that led up to the formulation of the principle. Then we recall that there are in fact two uncertainty principles, both dating from 1927, one by Werner Heisenberg and one by Earle Kennard. Finally, we explain that recent work in physics gives reason to believe that the principle of Heisenberg is invalid, while that of (...)

    Kurt Gödel’s incompleteness theorems and the limits of knowledgeIn this paper a presentation is given of Kurt Gödel’s pathbreaking results on the incompleteness of formal arithmetic. Some biographical details are provided but the main focus is on the analysis of the theorems themselves. An intermediate level between informal and formal has been sought that allows the reader to get a sufficient taste of the technicalities involved and not lose sight of the philosophical importance of the results. Connections are established with (...)

    Hoe Galileo Galilei de Valwet Ontdekte, En Het Verschil Dat Dit Maakt.Maarten Van Dyck - 2021 - Algemeen Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Wijsbegeerte 113 (1):81-105.
    How Galileo Galilei discovered the law of fall, and the difference that this makesGalileo’s law of fall is one of the crucial building blocks of classical mechanics. The question how this law was discovered has often been a topic of debate. This article offers a reconstruction of the developments within Galileo’s research that led to the discovery of the law. This reconstruction is offered to make a philosophical point regarding the epistemic status of experimental results: Galileo’s experiments can offer sufficient (...)

    Alfred Wegener’s Theory of Continental Drift and its Rivals. Rational Disagreement and Rational Consensus in the Earth SciencesAlfred Wegener launched the idea of continental drift early in the 20th century. In the period 1915-1930 he did not succeed to convince his fellow earth scientist to leave behind their old permanentist or contractionist theories and adopt his new theory. In the second half of the 20th century ‐ between 1960 and 1975 ‐ continental drift quickly became the dominant theory in the (...)
