    Hume's Intentions.John Arthur Passmore - 1952 - Duckworth.
    John Passmore was a renowned Australian empirical philosopher and historian of ideas. In this book, which was originally published in 1952, Passmore's intention was to disentangle certain main themes in Hume's philosophy and to show how they relate to Hume's main philosophic purpose. Rather than offering a detailed commentary, the text provides an account based on specificity and critical scholarship, seeking to complement the other more comprehensive works on Hume's philosophy that had become available around the same time. This book (...)

    The Idea of a History of Philosophy.John Passmore - 1965 - History and Theory 5:1.
    Polemical writings about philosophers, of little use if directed against straw men as is likely if not based on historical understanding, must incorporate cultural history, which, in focussing on a philosophy's relationship to its age, justifies ignoring historical sequence so long as figures are placed in context. Philosophy does progressively clarify what certain recurrent types of problems involve. The historian-philosopher writing a history of problems must know intimately philosopher and period, and reveal assumptions and aspects of problems hidden to the (...)

  12. Attitudes to Nature.John Passmore - 1974 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Lectures 8:251-264.
    The ambiguity of the word ‘nature’ is so remarkable that I need not remark upon it. Except perhaps to emphasise that this ambiguity — scarcely less apparent, as Aristotle long ago pointed out, in its Greek near-equivalent physis — is by no means a merely accidental product of etymological confusions or conflations: it faithfully reflects the hesitancies, the doubts and the uncertainties, with which men have confronted the world around them. For my special purposes, it is enough to say, I (...)

    “There's one thing certain,” said a historian of my acquaintance when he heard the title of this paper, “that's a problem which would never perturb a working-historian.” He was wrong: a working-historian first drew it to my attention; and in one form or another it raises its head whenever historians discuss the nature of their own inquiries. Yet in a way he was right. His mind had turned to the controversies of epistemologists, controversies about “the possibility of knowledge”; historians, he (...)

    Explanation in Everyday Life, in Science, and in History.John Passmore - 1962 - History and Theory 2 (2):105-123.
    Here the author explains the different ways in which explanation is made. He start saying how we explain things that we don't understand in everyday life, were sometimes simple relates or ideas are enough (to explain complex things to a kid, for example), and for us, when we don't understand something, we organise our thinking in order to find a explanation which has to be intelligible, adequate and correct. In science, they are not always like that, and they start trying (...)

    The Poverty of Historicism Revisited.John Passmore - 1975 - History and Theory 14 (4):30.
    Popper's use of the word "'historicism" is too encompassing. Does "historicism" refer to a theory of the social sciences, a way of doing them, or a "'well-considered and close-knit philosophy?" Here the term is taken to mean a theory about the aims of the social sciences. But even with reference to his other works, Popper's argument proves not to be against historicism as he defined it, but rather against one of the other varieties of Historismus. Nor does the doctrine involve (...)

    Explanation in Everyday Life, in Science, and in History.John Passmore - 1962 - History and Theory 2 (2):105.
    Explanations cannot be identified by logical form-explanations make use of forms of argument to remove puzzlement. Different criteria determine the satisfactoriness of different types of explanation, and the severity of their application distinguishes scientific, historical, and everyday explanations. For example, good causal explanations are intelligible, adequate, and correct. Scientists, interested in prediction, seek strictly necessary and sufficient conditions. Historians, who already know the facts, can be more casual-their standards for explanations approximate everyday standards, where an intelligible explanation is usually assumed (...)

    Editing Russell’s Papers: A Fragment of Institutional History.John Passmore - 1994 - Grazer Philosophische Studien 49 (1):189-205.
    This paper is both a slice of history, a warning and a congratulation. The history is about how the Russell papers found their way to a steel-town in Canada and how it came about that they have gradually been published. The warning is that it is extremely difficult to conduct such an enterprise on a co-operative basis, which may help to explain why so many enterprises of this kind have issued in failure. The congratulations are for those who have edited (...)

    Popper's Account of Scientific Method.John Arthur Passmore - 1960 - Philosophy 35 (135):326 - 331.
    Professor Karl Popper has had a great deal to endure: “expositions” of his ideas which were mere travesties, “refutations” which he had already answered, by anticipation, or which entirely missed the point at issue. One can easily understand why, when he came to publish an English translation of his Logik der Forschung, he decided to keep to the original text; it should at last be clear exactly what he had—and had not—said in 1934. Yet his thinking had by no means (...)
