    Machine Man and Other Writings.Ann Thomson (ed.) - 1996 - Cambridge University Press.
    Julien Offray de La Mettrie (1709-51), author of Machine Man (1747), was the most uncompromising of the materialists of the eighteenth century, and the provocative title of his work ensured it a succès de scandale in his own time. It was however a serious, if polemical, attempt to provide an explanation of the workings of the human body and mind in purely material terms and to show that thought was the product of the workings of the brain alone. This fully (...)

    French Eighteenth-Century Materialists and Natural Law.Ann Thomson - 2016 - History of European Ideas 42 (2).
    SummaryThis article looks at the discussions of natural law by the eighteenth-century French materialists Julien Offray de La Mettre, Denis Diderot, Paul Thiry d'Holbach and Claude-Adrien Helvétius. It is particularly concerned with their discussion of moral values and their attempt to find a materialistic basis for them as part of their rejection of religion. The discussion brings out the différences between them and analyses their dialogues on this question, including the other materialists' rejection of La Mettrie's amoralism, which threatened to (...)

  7. Critical Reasoning: A Practical Introduction.Anne Thomson - 1996 - Hoboken, NJ, USA: Routledge.
    Reasoning is the everyday process that we all use in order to draw conclusions from facts or evidence. To think critically about what you read and hear is a vital skill for everyone, whether you are a student or not. When we are faced with texts, news items or speeches, what is being said is often obscured by the words used and we may be unsure whether our reasoning, or that of others, is in fact sound. By the end of (...)

    Matérialisme Et Passions.Pierre-François Moreau, Ann Thomson & Line Cottegnies (eds.) - 2004 - Ens Editions.
    La modernité, dès ses débuts, attribue un rôle-clef aux passions : qu’elles soient hostiles à la Raison ou au contraire ses alliées, dangereuses ou fascinantes, elles marquent le rôle du corps, du désir, du langage et de l’imagination dans la nature de l’homme. La même époque voit se développer différentes variantes du matérialisme. Presque toutes réévaluent ce que la raison classique avait tendance à réprimer ou à considérer comme révélateur de la faiblesse humaine : le corps et tout ce qui, (...)

    La Mettrie, Machines, and the Denial of Liberty.Ann Thomson - 2000 - Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal 22 (1):71-86.
    This passage, from the brief exposition of Spinoza’s philosophy provided by La Mettrie in the Abrégé des systèmes, sums up various questions about his philosophy that I wish to raise in this article. I shall look at some of the main aspects of La Mettrie’s materialism that have presented problems since he published his works, and which have, to a large extent, accounted for, at best, the suspicion and, at worst, the revulsion that they have aroused from all shades of (...)

    Emotional Origins of Morality ‐‐ A Sketch.Anne Thomson - 1989 - Journal of Moral Education 18 (3):199-207.
    Abstract This paper traces the origins of the development of our capacity to make critical moral judgements. It is suggested that such a capacity develops out of unlearnt tendencies to sympathy and resentment. In the first section, a cognitive view of the nature of emotion is presented ?? a view which stresses that, far from being irrational disturbances, emotions involve judgements as well as urges to act, and that these judgements are frequently correct assessments of a situation. Section II discusses (...)

    La Mettrie Ou les Morts de Monsieur Machine.Ann Thomson - 2012 - Rivista di Storia Della Filosofia 1:177-186.
    This article, after evoking the hostile fictitious account of La Mettrie's death in which he is described as a machine, studies first of all how this doctor discussed death in his own works, in particular in Systčme d'Epicure. Here La Mettrie also refers to his own death, claiming that he has no doubt he will die as a philosopher. A study of the diverse accounts of and reactions to his untimely death shortly afterwards lead to the conclusion that he did (...)
