  1. Intellectual Intuition and Prophecy: Hegel, Maimonides, and a Neo-Maimonidean Psychology of Prophetic Intelligence.Phillip Stambovsky - 2015 - Iyyun • The Jerusalem Philosophical Quarterly 64 (1):3-32.
    Three of the chief questions this essay addresses are: 1. What justifies considering Hegel and Maimonides together in a probe of the philosophical psychology of prophetic intelligence? 2. What bearing does intellectual intuition as Hegel and Maimonides understand it have on prophecy approached from this standpoint? 3. How does the relation between intelligence and intuition and prophecy, when explored in light of the answer to the first two questions, deepen our contemporary understanding of prophecy in ways that are both philosophically (...)

    Idealism, Scientia Intuitiva, and Scientific Philosophy.Phillip Stambovsky - 2012 - Review of Metaphysics 66 (2):339-352.
    “Considered objectively, there can be only one human reason, there... can be only one true system of philosophy from principles, in however many different and even conflicting ways one has philosophized about the same proposition”—so declares Kant in the Vorrede to the “Doctrine of Right.” Kant makes this observation in the process of framing a striking claim: “prior to the development of critical philosophy there had been no philosophy at all.” Eckart Förster adduces this claim as a point of departure (...)

    Mythemically Figuring the Limits of Ethical Reason.Phillip Stambovsky - 2002 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 76:137-152.
    This paper considers how Kierkegaard self-reflexively portrays the tension between the boundary limit of discursive reason and mythic imagination in his classic analysis of Abrahamic faith. Following some reflections on the nature and philosophical implications of that tension, I examine its salient delineation in the Prelude of Fear and Trembling. Through four non-canonical renderings of the biblical Aqedah myth featured in the Prelude, Kierkegaard depicts the limits of ethical reasoning in the drama of Johannes de Silentio’s struggle to figure-forth Abraham’s (...)

    Metaphor and Historical Understanding.Phillip Stambovsky - 1988 - History and Theory 27 (2):125-134.
    As a contextual phenomenon, metaphor operates in fundamentally different ways in divergent universes of discourse. In historiography, Maurice Mandelbaum's incisive typology of forms of historical discourse affords a comprehensive conceptual basis for foregrounding the three fundamental ways that metaphor functions. Each of the three functions of metaphor facilitates historical understanding on a different epistemological level. Heuristic imagery advances deliberative, analytic understanding and falls within the domain of explanatory discourse. Depictive imagery presentationally facilitates the apprehension of meanings and occurrences; it is (...)

  9. Devotional Intelligence and Jewish Religious Thinking: A Philosophical Essay.Phillip Stambovsky - 2019 - Lexington Books.
    This volume introduces an original philosophy of Jewish religious thinking as devotional intelligence. It establishes the intellectual warrant of such thinking in light of two related principles: relativity v. intelligence—the metaphysical principle that knowing is of being—and the normative principle of sacral attunement.

    Philosophical Conceptualization and Literary Art Inference, Ereignis, and Conceptual Attunement to the Work of Poetic Genius.Phillip Stambovsky - 2004
    At defining junctures in their writings, philosophers as diverse as Hegel, Kierkegaard, Whitehead, Cassirer, and Heidegger demonstrate that they were keenly alive to the visionary authority of the work of artistic genius as an originally stimulus to the philosophical imagination. This book undertakes to make explicit that shared insight. The inquiry aims not only to demonstrate but also to engender in the reader a firsthand sense of the energizing and speculative value of intermediating conceptual engagements with the visionary "work" of (...)

    The Depictive Image Metaphor and Literary Experience.Phillip Stambovsky - 1988 - University of Massachusetts Press.
    This study introduces a phenomenological view of literary metaphor, positing it as "depictive" imagery that operates as the presentational dynamic in the unfolding of literary themes. Unlike most approaches to metaphor, the present work grounds construal of the metaphoric process in the experiential frame of reference in which literary metaphor depicts meaning. The opening chapter is a critical review of the standard theories of metaphor based on such notions as comparison, substitution, transfer, analogy, interaction, iconicity, and context. The conclusion is (...)
