    Analogical Inference in Gustav Theodor Fechner’s Inductive Metaphysics.Ansgar Seide - 2020 - Grazer Philosophische Studien 98 (1):186-202.
    Gustav Theodor Fechner was one of the main proponents of inductive metaphysics in the 19th century. The idea of inductive metaphysics is to use empirical sources and inductive forms of inference in metaphysics. Although this sounds like a research program which might well appeal to scientifically minded philosophers, some of Fechner’s metaphysical conclusions look very suspicious from a scientific viewpoint. For example, Fechner famously argues that the planets and stars are animated by a soul and that the same holds for (...)

    Wilhelm Wundts Logik Als Auftakt Zu Einer Induktiven Metaphysik.Ansgar Seide - 2021 - Zeitschrift für Philosophische Forschung 75 (4):554-578.
    In the extensive methodology of his Logik, Wilhelm Wundt examines in detail the methodological procedure in the individual sciences. As will be shown in this article, these investigations are not only intended to clarify or improve the procedures in the individual sciences, but also to be of benefit to philosophy and especially to metaphysics. Wundt belongs to the traditional line of inductive metaphysics, whose representatives were of the opinion that metaphysics should be based on the results and methods of the (...)

    Philip Kitcher – Pragmatic Naturalism.Marie I. Kaiser & Ansgar Seide (eds.) - 2013 - Frankfurt/Main, Germany: ontos.
    Philip Kitcher is one of the most distinguished philosophers of our days. Since the rise of philosophy of biology in the 1960s Kitcher has deeply influenced and inspired many of the debates in this field. Among his most important books are The Advancement of Science (1993), In Mendel’s Mirror: Philosophical Reflections on Biology (2003), and Science in a Democratic Society (2011). However, Kitcher’s philosophical interest is not restricted to the philosophy of science. Rather, he has also made groundbreaking contributions to (...)

    How the Understanding Prescribes Form Without Prescribing Content – Kant on Empirical Laws in the Second Analogy of Experience.Ansgar Seide - 2017 - Kant Yearbook 9 (1):133-158.
    Kant claims that the understanding prescribes the existence and necessity of empirical laws to nature, while it does not prescribe which particular empirical laws hold. That is to say, the understanding prescribes the general form of nature and the form of the empirical laws without prescribing the material content. But how is this possible? How can the understanding guarantee that there are necessary empirical laws without prescribing particular empirical laws to nature? In this paper, I want to answer this question (...)

    Points of Convergence Between Logical Empiricism and Inductive Metaphysics: Hans Reichenbach and Erich Becher in Comparison.Ansgar Seide - 2021 - Synthese 199 (3-4):11075-11107.
    In this paper, I take a closer look at Hans Reichenbach’s relation to metaphysics and work out some interesting parallels between his account and that of the proponents of inductive metaphysics, a tradition that emerged in the mid- and late 19th century and the early 20th century in Germany. It is in particular Hans Reichenbach’s conception of the relation between the natural sciences and metaphysics, as displayed in his treatment of the question of the existence of the external world, that (...)

    Theodizee Und Atheismus: Norbert Hoersters Argumentation Gegen Die Existenz Gottes.Ansgar Seide - 2020 - Zeitschrift für Philosophische Forschung 74 (1):141-154.
    Starting from the problem of evil, Norbert Hoerster argues for an atheistic position. He discusses several historical and current attempts to reconcile the existing evils with the existence of God and comes to the negative conclusion that all of these attempts fail. From this, he concludes that the existing evils speak against the existence of God. In this article I argue that Hoerster's arguments are not sufficient for an atheistic conclusion. Rather, they only strengthen the case for agnosticism, the position (...)
