    Error, Error-Statistics and Self-Directed Anticipative Learning.R. P. Farrell & C. A. Hooker - 2008 - Foundations of Science 14 (4):249-271.
    Error is protean, ubiquitous and crucial in scientific process. In this paper it is argued that understanding scientific process requires what is currently absent: an adaptable, context-sensitive functional role for error in science that naturally harnesses error identification and avoidance to positive, success-driven, science. This paper develops a new account of scientific process of this sort, error and success driving Self-Directed Anticipative Learning (SDAL) cycling, using a recent re-analysis of ape-language research as test example. The example shows the limitations of (...)

    Issues of “Cost, Capabilities, and Scope” in Characterizing Adoptees' Lack of “Genetic-Relative Family Health History” as an Avoidable Health Disparity: Response to Open Peer Commentaries on “Does Lack of ‘Genetic-Relative Family Health History’ Represent a Potentially Avoidable Health Disparity for Adoptees?”.Thomas May, James P. Evans, Kimberly A. Strong, Kaija L. Zusevics, Arthur R. Derse, Jessica Jeruzal, Alison LaPean Kirschner, Michael H. Farrell & Harold D. Grotevant - 2016 - American Journal of Bioethics 16 (12):4-8.
    Many adoptees face a number of challenges relating to separation from biological parents during the adoption process, including issues concerning identity, intimacy, attachment, and trust, as well as language and other cultural challenges. One common health challenge faced by adoptees involves lack of access to genetic-relative family health history. Lack of GRFHx represents a disadvantage due to a reduced capacity to identify diseases and recommend appropriate screening for conditions for which the adopted person may be at increased risk. In this (...)

  22. Law and Morality in Ancient China: The Silk Manuscripts of Huang-Lao.R. P. Peerenboom - 1990 - Dissertation, University of Hawai'i
    The 1973 archeological discovery of important documents of classical thought known as the Huang-Lao Boshu coupled with advancements in contemporary jurisprudence make possible a reassessment of the philosophies of pre-Qin and early Han China. This study attempts to elucidate the importance of the Huang-Lao school within the intellectual tradition of China through a comparison of the Boshu's philosophical position, particularly its understanding of the relation between law and morality, with the respective views of major thinkers of the period--Confucius, Han Fei, (...)

    Judaism and Christianity. [REVIEW]P. R. - 1959 - Review of Metaphysics 12 (3):487-487.
    In this well-bred polemic against Christianity, the "romantic religion," the author speaks from the standpoint of a devout Jew. He is most challenging in his reading of the Gospels as the history of a Jew among Jews, "manifesting...what is pure and good in Judaism," except so far as it has been unfortunately obscured by a later and less-admirable Pauline theology.--R.

    An Approach to Descartes’ ‘Meditations’. [REVIEW]R. P. D. - 1972 - Review of Metaphysics 26 (2):351-352.
    Broadie notes in his preface that the trouble with the Meditations is "that since the work is short and well written one has finished it before one has properly begun to grasp the vast issues with which Descartes engages." To overcome this trouble he turns to Descartes for advice. Descartes notes in his "Preface to the Reader" that he would never advise anyone to read the Meditations excepting those who desire to meditate seriously with him. Broadie takes Descartes at his (...)

    Bergson and Modern Physics: A Reinterpretation and Reevaluation. [REVIEW]R. P. D. - 1972 - Review of Metaphysics 26 (2):355-355.
    As seen by Professor Capek, Bergson’s views about the nature of matter were either misunderstood or ignored in the decades following their publication at the turn of the century. The explanation for this attitude of both Bergson’s opponents and his disciples lies in the fact that, at that time, although there were rumblings under the foundations of classical physics, "hardly anybody could then guess even remotely the extent of the coming scientific revolution." One of the main stumbling blocks for Bergson’s (...)

    Determinism and Indeterminism in Modern Physics. [REVIEW]P. R. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (4):717-717.
    This work, which first appeared in 1936, offers in addition to an historical treatment displaying Cassirer's characteristic insight, an analysis of quantum mechanics largely unaffected by subsequent development in the field. The author argues, on the basis of epistemological considerations, that quantum mechanics necessitates no major revisions in our basic understanding of causality. The new laws simply refer to "definite collectives" rather than things or events and are no less determinate than the old. In the final part the author stresses (...)

    Anarchy, State, and Utopia. [REVIEW]P. M. R. - 1976 - Review of Metaphysics 30 (1):134-135.
    Perhaps no work since John Rawls’ A Theory of Justice has attracted as much recent attention as Robert Nozick’s case for a minimal state—an ingeniously argued critique, not only of antinomian individualism, but also of liberal and socialist contractualism. It might be added that the book is no solace either to more conservative political theorists, who lament state incursion into private life, but whose political structures exhibit either actual or potential constriction of human life. Nozick’s book is both a searching (...)

    Locke’s Philosophy of Science and Knowledge. [REVIEW]R. P. D. - 1972 - Review of Metaphysics 26 (2):373-373.
    With the subtitle, "A consideration of some aspects of An Essay concerning Human Understanding," this book concentrates on Locke’s doctrine of natural or scientific laws and our knowledge of them. By dealing with a limited theme, Woolhouse feels that he is able to provide a treatment lengthier than usual of central topics of Locke’s thought. The topics selected are: "trifling" and "instructive" propositions; "certain knowledge" and "probable opinion"; the notion of an "idea"; simple and complex ideas; the distinction between modes (...)

    Averroes' Commentary on Plato's "Republic". [REVIEW]P. R. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (3):511-511.
    A critical edition, with translation and notes, of Samuel's 14th century Hebrew translation, otherwise available only in Mantinus' 1539 Latin translation from the Hebrew. The translator's English is surprisingly intelligible in view of the difficulties of the text which are helpfully indicated and discussed in the notes. The commentary itself is especially interesting as an instance of the influence of Aristotle on the Medieval Platonic tradition. Republic I and X are explicitly ignored as containing "no proof except by accident" and (...)

    For those who like to locate a subject matter within some familiar context before plunging into its content, this book offers a formidable barrier. Bahm has provided neither preface nor introduction to his work. His book presents three loosely connected studies dealing with polarity, dialectic, and negation, with a final chapter on "Organicity," where we discover that Bahm is introducing us to a new philosophy which he calls "organicism." Organicism distinguishes the categories of existence and experience as ultimate and interdependent. (...)

    This addition to the Comparative Studies of Cultures and Civilizations is more sharply focussed than its predecessor, Studies in Chinese Thought. Although the subject matters spans 2,500 years these twelve essays are primarily concerned with some aspect of the "use of Confucian ideas in political struggles and socio-political institutions." The authors are not so much contributing to the "history of ideas" as they are illustrating the relationships between thought and action in detailed studies of one non-Western culture.

    This volume gives an overview of the subject of mathematical logic, placing primary emphasis on theory instead of the development of skills. It contains chapters on the history of logic, first and second order quantification theory, metatheory, and some of the philosophical implications of recent work in the field. Needless to say, none of these topics is treated in any great detail owing to the space limitations. Care has been taken by the author, however, to insure that his discussions do (...)

    Aristotle's Theory of Contrariety. [REVIEW]P. R. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 12 (1):142-142.
    Anton views the Aristotelian contraries as "principles of understanding, generic concepts, employed in the analysis of any determinate process whatever." He argues that the principle of contrariety simply renders process intelligible and is not, as it was for many of Aristotle's predecessors, a causal principle. In the course of his argument the author shows the use of this "formal demand for determinateness" in widely diverse areas, proceeding from the categories to ontology and language, and through psychology to ethics.--R.

    Although Toffler has not written an in-depth philosophical analysis of social problems, he certainly has written a highly readable popular diagnosis of the phenomenon of cultural change which social philosophers should be considering, and has given a synoptic view of contemporary culture similar to Pitirim Sorokin's popular Crisis of Our Age in the forties. Toffler's thesis is "that there are discoverable limits to the amount of change that the human organism can absorb, and that by endlessly accelerating change without first (...)

    Dominant Themes of Modern Philosophy: A History. [REVIEW]P. R. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (4):716-716.
    Not a conventional history, this work is organized in terms of the author's understanding of the developing ideas of philosophy from the Italian Renaissance to the twentieth century. The first part of the work is developed along the tensions between the empiricist and Platonic traditions; thus Berkeley is seen in relation to Locke and Hume but also to the Cambridge Platonists. A novel facet of the middle part of the work is the large section separating Leibniz and Kant, devoted to (...)
