  1. Major Philosophers of Jewish Prayer in the Twentieth Century.Jack Cohen - 2000 - Fordham University Press.
    Major Philosophers of Jewish Prayer in the Twentieth Century addresses the troubling questions posed by the modern Jewish worshiper, including such obstacles to prayer as the inability to concentrate on the words and meanings of formal liturgy, the paucity of emotional involvement, the lack of theological conviction, the anthropomorphic and particularly the masculine emphasis of prayer nomenclature, and other matters. In assessing these difficultites, Cohen brings to the reader the writings on prayer of some seminal 20th century Jewish (...)

    Whitehead, Russell, and Moore: Three Analytic Philosophers.Bogdan Rusu & Ronny Desmet - 2012 - Process Studies 41 (2):214-234.
    The aim of this historically oriented article is to give an account of the methodological similarity of Whitehead and Russell with regard to the logico-mathematicalmode of philosophical analysis, and of Whitehead and Moore with regard to common sense. According to the authors, these similarities, especially when taken together, justify the classification of Whitehead as an analytic philosopher. Because of the doctrinal uniqueness of Whitehead, however, they also hold that he will always remain an atypical analytic philosopher.

    Essays on Hegel’s Logic.George R. Lucas Jr - 1995 - The Owl of Minerva 26 (2):203-207.
    This volume contains twelve papers and selected replies originally delivered at the Tenth Biennial Meeting of the Hegel Society of America, held at Loyola University of Chicago, October 7-9, 1988. The choice to focus that meeting on interpretations of Hegel’s logic presented the contributors to this volume with a formidable challenge. It is one thing to find new ways to interpret Hegel’s thought in the light of contemporary or perennial philosophical problems, or in comparison with the work of other (...) philosophers. Such themes seem to offer almost limitless and inexhaustible possibilities. Attempting, by contrast, to say something original and important about the Logic constitutes a labor of Sisyphus, in light of the extensive exegesis and interpretation of these texts already undertaken by virtually all of the outstanding Hegel scholars during the past century and a half.

He introduces the book with a chapter discussing how coherent the social contract tradition is, and concludes with some reflections on the five philosophers and their relation to contemporary political thought.

  34. Humean Reason and the Problem of Warrant.William Edward Morris - 2000 - Hume Studies 26 (2):305-321.
    David Owen’s new book invites us to take a fresh look at three major modern philosophers: Descartes, Locke, and Hume. Although Leibniz invented the familiar conception of proof as a formal relationship among sentences, reasoning for these three philosophers was a very different animal: they thought of it as a matter, not of form, but of content. They regarded proof—demonstration or demonstrative reasoning—as a process of stringing together chains of relations between ideas. That process appeals to the (...)

    Review of Formal, Transcendental and Dialectical Thinking: Logic and Reality.Howard P. Kainz - 1989 - The Owl of Minerva 20 (2):231-234.
    This is a book in which Harris weaves together his work on logic, philosophy of science, metaphysics, and political philosophy - already the subject of his earlier articles and books - into a striking personal synthesis. Harris does not while away his time calculating the number of angels on the head of a pin or the types and differrentiations of “raw feels,” but addresses himself to important and challenging questions, some of them almost completely neglected by other philosophers. In (...)

    Aspects of French Hegelianism.Tom Rockmore - 1993 - The Owl of Minerva 24 (2):191-206.
    It is hardly surprising, since for Hegel philosophers are children of their times, that French Hegelianism differs from Hegelianism in other languages and literatures. At least the following aspects typify the French approach to Hegel's theory. To begin with, Hegel, like a few others, is a master thinker in the French discussion, one of the few intellectual figures around whom the discussion tends to take shape. Second, in the wake of the major impetus provided to French Hegel studies (...)

    Hegel’s Art History and the Critique of Modernity. [REVIEW]Allen Speight - 2001 - The Owl of Minerva 33 (1):138-140.
    Whether art has come to an “end” in the modern age has been a question of interest for generations of philosophers and art critics since Hegel’s Lectures on Aesthetics. Beat Wyss takes up this question in the context of a wide-ranging account of post-Hegelian art history and art historians that has now been translated into English. Wyss’s project, whose larger aims can perhaps be better glimpsed from the book’s German title, divides into two major sets of reflections—the first (...)

    Whitehead and Analytic Philosophy of Mind.George W. Shields - 2012 - Process Studies 41 (2):287-336.
    My purpose in this essay is to provide a critical survey of arguments within recent analytic philosophy regarding the so-called “mind-body problem” with a particular view toward the relationship between these arguments and the philosophy of A.N. Whitehead.1In course, I shall argue that Whitehead’s panexperientialist physicalism avoids paradoxes and difficulties of both materialist-physicalism and Cartesian dualismas advocated by a variety of analytic philosophers. However, and I believe that this point is not often sufficiently recognized, analytic philosophy of mind is (...)

    A Comment on Timothy Sprigge’s Account of William James.Graham Bird - 1996 - Bradley Studies 2 (1):64-71.
    Philosophers are intellectual cannibals; they feed on the supposed errors of their colleagues. No harm in that, it might be said. With a sophistical argument like that of the Queen in Alice Through the Looking Glass to support the punishment of the innocent, progress in philosophy might be thought dependent on such voracious activities. The Queen thought that in replying to the claim that punishing the innocent was wrong one could say that if the victim really was innocent then (...)

    Bradley and McTaggart on Time.David J. Farmer - 1996 - Bradley Studies 2 (2):104-116.
    In 1894, John McTaggart reviewed Francis Bradley’s major work, Appearance and Reality. I know of no other review by McTaggart of Bradley’s work; and I know of no review by Bradley of McTaggart’s work. McTaggart, then 28 years old, had been a Cambridge Fellow for only three years. Bradley, 48 years old and a leading figure at Oxford, was at the height of his powers. He has been seen as a culmination of the English Idealism, or Neo-Hegelianism, that both (...)

This book, which is regarded as Bosanquet’s major contribution to political philosophy, contains a detailed account of “the fundamental ideas of a true social philosophy” culminating in a comprehensive analysis of the concept of the state structured around core ideas such as political obligation, the real will and its psychological foundations, freedom, self-realisation, individuality, citizenship, the ethical institutions, and (...)

    The Political Animal.Peter G. Stillman - 1983 - The Owl of Minerva 14 (3):9-10.
    Leo Rauch has written an intelligent, humane, and readable set of studies of six major political philosophers from Machiavelli to Marx. His book is of particular interest to members of the Hegel Society for two reasons. The immediately apparent reason is the sixty-page chapter on Hegel. In this chapter, Rauch does not arrive at any striking or novel interpretation nor produce any sustained confrontation with the scholarly works on Hegel. Not does he intend to. His aim, rather, is (...)

  48. The Itinerary of Intersubjectivity in Social Phenomenological Research.Kenneth Liberman - 2009 - Schutzian Research. A Yearbook of Worldly Phenomenology and Qualitative Social Science 1:149-164.
    The struggles that Alfred Schutz, Aron Gurwitsch, Harold Garfinkel, and other social phenomenologists and ethnomethodologists have had with Edmund Husserl’s progenitive but inconsistent notion of intersubjectivity are summarized and assessed. In particular, an account of Schutz’s objections to intersubjective constitution is presented. The commonly pervading elements and major differences within this lineage of inquiry – a four generation-long lineage of teacher and student that commences with Husserl, runs through Schutz and Gurwitsch, then Garfinkel, and then the present author and (...)

  49. Hume and Locke on Scientific Methodology: The Newtonian Legacy.Graciela De Pierris - 2006 - Hume Studies 32 (2):277-329.
    Hume follows Newton in replacing the mechanical philosophy’s demonstrative ideal of science by the Principia’s ideal of inductive proof ; in this respect, Hume differs sharply from Locke. Hume is also guided by Newton’s own criticisms of the mechanical philosophers’ hypotheses. The first stage of Hume’s skeptical argument concerning causation targets central tenets of the mechanical philosophers’ conception of causation, all of which rely on the a priori postulation of a hidden configuration of primary qualities. The skeptical argument (...)

    - Peter Railton1 Railton's remark is accurate; contemporary philosophers almost invariably suppose that morality is more vulnerable than empirical science to scepticism. Yet David Hume apparently embraces an inversion of this twentieth century orthodoxy.2 In book I of the Treatise, he claims that the understanding, when it reflects upon itself, "entirely subverts itself" (T 1. 4.7.7; SBN 267) while, in contrast, in book III he claims that our moral faculty, when reflecting upon itself, acquires "new force" (T 3.3.6.3; SBN (...)
