    Teksten Bekleed Met Autoriteit: Een Model Voor de Analyse van Epistemische Autoriteit in Commentaartradities.Saskia Arets & Jan Opsomer - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (2):277-294.
    ‘Authority’ is a term widely used in scholarly debate, including the history of philosophy. However, what is meant by this term is not always clear and the concept is not very well defined. One reason for this is certainly that the phenomenon itself is complex and the corresponding terms are used with a degree of latitude. This makes it difficult to adequately compare and connect the insights that various case studies have to offer. For historians of philosophy, it is thus (...)

    De Logische Geometrie van Johannes Buridanus' Modale Achthoek.Lorenz Demey & Philipp Steinkrüger - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (2):217-238.
    In order to elucidate his logical analysis of modal quantified propositions (e.g. ‘all men are necessarily mortal’), the 14th century philosopher John Buridan constructed a modal octagon of oppositions. In the present paper we study this modal octagon from the perspective of contemporary logical geometry. We argue that the modal octagon contains precisely six squares of opposition as subdiagrams, and classify these squares based on their logical properties. On a more abstract level, we show that Buridan’s modal octagon precisely captures (...)

    Hij of Het (Ding) Denkt, Niet Ik: Frith Over Verbale Hallucinaties.Jasper Feyaerts & Stijn Vanheule - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (2):313-342.
    In this article we will offer a critical discussion of Frith’s self-monitoring theory as a neurocognitive explanation of auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHS) in schizophrenia. First, the extrapolation of self-monitoring models from movement to thought is discussed and questioned. We will argue that Frith’s model suffers from both an infinite regress and/or an inability to account for the process of thinking. Next, the phenomenological description of avhs as a disturbance of self-agency is reconsidered both on philosophical and empirical grounds. Finally, some (...)

    Thomas van Aquino, Niet-Normale Modale Logica's En Het Probleem van Toekomstige Contingenties.Luca Gili & Lorenz Demey - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (2):259-276.
    Thomas Aquinas maintained that God foreknows future contingent events and that his foreknowledge does not entail that they are necessarily the case. More specifically, he stated that if God knows a future contingent event, this future contingent event will be necessarily the case de sensu composito, but not de sensu diviso. After emphasizing the unified nature of Aquinas’ notion of necessity, we propose an interpretation of his theses by restating them within the framework of non-normal modal logics. In this framework, (...)

    Zelfpredicatie: Middeleeuwse En Hedendaagse Perspectieven.Jan Heylen & Can Laurens Löwe - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (2):239-258.
    The focus of the article is the self-predication principle, according to which the/a such-and-such is such-and-such. We consider contemporary approaches (Frege, Russell, Meinong) to the self-predication principle, as well as fourteenth-century approaches (Burley, Ockham, Buridan). In crucial ways, the Ockham-Buridan view prefigures Russell’s view, and Burley’s view shows a striking resemblance to Meinong’s view. In short the Russell-Ockham-Buridan view holds: no existence, no truth. The Burley-Meinong view holds, in short: intelligibility suffices for truth. Both views approach self-predication in a uniform (...)

    Apis, Philoxène, Sardanapale Et Smindyride: L'intempérance Et Son Revers Dans l'Éthique d'Aristote.Louise Rodrigue - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (2):295-312.
    This study mainly aims at showing that intemperance is a radical vice. The explanation rests upon the characteristics given by Aristotle in both Ethics: intemperance is brutish, slavish, childish, gross, and sluggish, as specific examples emphasize. The second section highlights the importance of the corresponding virtue of temperance, and the concluding section comments on the perfect opposition between these two states.

    The Dosage of the State: Ricoeur’s Political Paradox Reconsidered.Dries Deweer - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (1):89-110.
    While the original statement of Ricoeur’s concept of the ”political paradox’ is disappointingly banal at first sight, this article focuses on his further elaboration of this concept in the final decades of his career. The first restatement focuses on the tension between the constitutional form and the inevitable dimension of force in politics. The second restatement concerns the intersection of the vertical relationship of domination and the horizontal relationship of the will to live together. Finally, the third and last restatement (...)

    Vittorio Hosle’s Eine Kurze Geschichte der Deutschen Philosophie.Harald Holz - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (1):129-142.
    This article offers a critical review of Vittorio Hosle’s Eine kurze Geschichte der deutschen Philosophie: Ruckblick auf den deutschen Geist. The first section of this review delineates the main themes Vittorio Hosle sees as representative of what he calls German spirit in philosophy. Hosle’s criteria for inclusion in his survey of German philosophers are that they write in German and that they have sufficient importance for the progress of philosophy in the German-speaking world. In part two, this review then surveys (...)

    This survey discusses the philosophically relevant literature on Moses Maimonides published between 2004 and 2014 in Western European languages. Besides a survey of general studies related to Maimonides and his thought, special attention is paid to the Guide of the Perplexed the edition of both the original text and Hebrew and Latin translations, as well as studies), in addition to studies that deal with the influence of Arabic sources on Maimonides’ thought and the reception of the latter in the later (...)

    Spinoza: Are Essences of Singular Things Eternal?Henk Keizer - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (1):57-87.
    The important conclusion of this article is that essences of singular things are not eternal in the sense of being distinctive eternal modes, as is generally held by Spinoza scholars. Both the essence and the existence of singular things are eternal in the sense that they are comprehended in God’s eternal nature, that is to say, in the sense that they follow necessarily from that nature. The second conclusion is that the essence and the existence of things are inseparable. There (...)

    Non-Linguistic Thinking - From a Phenomenological Point of View.Dieter Lohmar - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (1):31-56.
    Even if most of our actual thinking appears to us in the form of our mother tongue, the level of language is neither the only nor the basic level of our thinking. In this paper I will argue that there is a deeper level of thinking that we also use, which is usually only expressed by means of language. The basic way of thinking is non-linguistic and it can be established by a careful analysis of the vivid life of our (...)

    The Ambiguity of Sensation in Bergson.Jones Allen Thomas - 2017 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 79 (1):3-30.
    In Time and Free Will, Bergson understands sensation to be the frontline of an encroachment of the forms of the external world upon duration. With his method of intuition, he seeks to liberate the dynamic powers of consciousness from this incursion. The driving question of this article is the following: In his attempt to reclaim sensation for duration by driving extensity from it, has he not gone too far, effectively alienating man from his own suffering body? In the maturation of (...)
