    Introduction: Debates on Experience and Empiricism in Nineteenth Century France.Delphine Antoine-Mahut & Silvia Manzo - 2019 - Perspectives on Science 27 (5):643-654.
    The lasting effects of the debate over canon-formation during the 1980s affected the whole field of Humanities, which became increasingly engaged in interrogating the origin and function of the Western canon. In philosophy, a great deal of criticism was, as a result, directed at the traditional narrative of seventeenth-and eighteenth-century philosophies—a critique informed by postcolonialism as well as feminist historiography. D. F. Norton, L. Loeb and many others1 attempted to demonstrate the weaknesses of the tripartite division between rationalism, empiricism and (...)

    Experimental Method and the Spiritualist Soul: The Case of Victor Cousin.Delphine Antoine-Mahut - 2019 - Perspectives on Science 27 (5):680-703.
    Spiritualism designates a philosophy that lays claim to the separation of mind and body and the ontological and epistemological primacy of the former. In France, it is associated with the names of Victor Cousin and René Descartes, or more precisely with what Cousin made of Descartes as the founding father of a brittle rational psychology, closed off from the positive sciences, and as a critic in respect to the empiricist legacy of the idéologues. Moreover, by considering merely the end result, (...)

    Descartes' Treatise on Man and Its Reception.Stephen Gaukroger & Delphine Antoine-Mahut (eds.) - 2016 - Springer.
    This edited volume features 20 essays written by leading scholars that provide a detailed examination of L’Homme by René Descartes. It explores the way in which this work developed themes not just on questions such as the circulation of the blood, but also on central questions of perception and our knowledge of the world. Coverage first offers a critical discussion on the different versions of L'Homme, including the Latin, French, and English translations and the 1664 editions. Next, the authors examine (...)

  6. The Story of L’Homme.Delphine Antoine-Mahut - 2016 - In Stephen Gaukroger & Delphine Antoine-Mahut (eds.), Descartes' Treatise on Man and its Reception. Springer.
    The story of L’Homme is a true novel. Its plot weaves itself along three intersecting points: an unfinished text, a copied or plagiarised text, and a corrected text. Telling this whole and complex story helps us to understand the true place of Descartes in the history of modern anthropology and in the contemporary attempt to explain cognition, memory, sensation and human health. In a nutshell, it is probably the best way to understand the Cartesian contribution to the vast philosophical programme (...)

    Reviving Spiritualism with Monads: Francisque Bouillier's Impossible Mission.Delphine Antoine-Mahut - 2015 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 23 (6):1106-1127.
    This paper studies Francisque Bouillier’s contribution to cousinian Spiritualism, from his first text on the History of Cartesian Philosophy from 1839 to the publication of Du principe vital et de l’âme pensante, a work which was likewise considerably amended as a result of the polemics it gave rise to. The paper is concerned with the reception of Leibniz in a double sense. In a positive sense, Bouillier managed to reintegrate in the caricature of the Cartesian soul conceived by the Cousinians, (...)

    Philosophizing with a Historiographical Figure: Descartes in Degérando’s Histoire Comparée des Systèmes de Philosophie.Delphine Antoine-Mahut - 2020 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 28 (3):533-552.
    The writings by the ‘state philosophers’ of nineteenth-century France are often seen, either as entirely driven by political or ideological concerns, or reduced to mere history of philosophy. Hence...

  9. Physics and Metaphysics in Descartes and in His Reception.Delphine Antoine-Mahut & Sophie Roux - 2018 - Routledge.
    This volume explores the relationship between physics and metaphysics in Descartes' philosophy. According to the standard account, Descartes modified the objects of metaphysics and physics and inverted the order in which these two disciplines were traditionally studied. This book challenges the standard account in which Descartes prioritizes metaphysics over physics. It does so by taking into consideration the historical reception of Descartes and the ways in which Descartes himself reacted to these receptions in his own lifetime. The book stresses the (...)

    There is a paradox in the fate of nineteenth-century French philosophy: the ‘eclecticism' or ‘spiritualism' that was university philosophy, championed by Victor Cousin – ‘the king of the philosophe...

    Curiosity and the Passions of Knowledge From Montaigne to Hobbes Ed. By Gianni Paganini.Delphine Antoine-Mahut - 2020 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 58 (4):815-817.
    This trilingual volume brings together the papers presented at the international conference held at the Accademia dei Lincei on October 7–8, 2015.The introduction, by Gianni Paganini, clearly identifies the gap that needs to be filled in the historical study of the notion of curiosity, particularly after Blumenberg's reference work, Der Prozess der theoretischen Neugierde, which passes over two major figures: Montaigne and Hobbes. The latter can in many ways be seen as "the most important theorist of curiosity in early modern (...)

    The A Priori Thought of Descartes: Cognition, Method and Science by Jan Palkoska.Delphine Antoine-Mahut - 2017 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 55 (4):731-732.
    Resituating Descartes in any historical framework allows one to show how a radical philosophy was built against, but also along with, current and past doctrines. Taking seriously this intellectual struggle is worthwhile. But genetic analysis of the Cartesian corpus presents a real challenge. One pragmatic way of doing it is to begin with lexical clarification as proposed by Palkoska. His aim is to understand Descartes's conception of scientia, and to explain how cognition produces certain and evident true judgments. The main (...)

    La Ricezione Malebranchiana Dell’Antropologia Pascaliana. La Questione Della Trasmissione Del Peccato Originale.Delphine Antoine-Mahut - unknown
    The Malebranchian Reception of Pascal’s Anthropology. The Question of the Transmission of Original Sin. The comparison between the theoretical positions of Pascal and Malebranche on the opportunity to shed light rationally on the ways of original sin proves to be highly instructive from three perspectives. On the one hand, it enlightens us on the strategy adopted in each of these apologetic projects towards the mobilization of physiological arguments with strong materialistic undertones. In return, it injects a little dynamism into their (...)
