    Mana and Logos: Violence and Order in Thomas Aquinas.Richard A. Lee Jr - 2001 - Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal 22 (2):29-48.
    One of the constant themes of Adorno’s work, running from his early essay “The Idea of Natural History” through his unfinished Aesthetic Theory, is the notion of the experience of power within the natural realm and the relation of rational “enlightenment” to this experience. On the one hand, “Enlightenment is mythic fear turned radical” ; on the other hand, “Myth turns into enlightenment, and nature into mere objectivity”. What concerns Adorno is precisely the dialectic that enlightenment itself is. As the (...)

    At Least They Had an Ethos: Comedy as the Only Possible Critique.Richard A. Lee Jr - 2016 - Angelaki 21 (3):55-64.
    I argue that the uniqueness of comedy lies in its potential for social critique. Reading through Aristotle, Hegel, and Umberto Eco, I show that because comedy is not negative, not a counter-argument, it can expose social structures for what they are.

    Materialism as Metaphysics? Hobbes’ Rationalist Materialism.Richard A. Lee Jr - 2005 - Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal 26 (2):137-155.
    “Whatever is, is matter.” Is this all there is to materialism? Is it really nothing more than the result of a kind of metaphysical census? “We have looked around, and all we find is matter. The reports of souls and angels, God and separated intelligences, ideas and essences have all proven false. Whatever is, is matter.” Yet how would I ever come to know such a thing? The issue is not only that I cannot possibly take such a census. More (...)

  13. The Force of Reason and the Logic of Force.Richard A. Lee - 2004 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    The Force of Reason and the Logic of Force investigates the concept of force through various "episodes" in the history of philosophy. The author argues that force arises on the basis of the distinction of reality and mere appearance. The book looks at figures who reduce force to something other than itself as well as figures who develop a "logic of force" that allows them to trace the operation of force without such a reduction.

    The Glorious Excess of Peace in Marsilius of Padua's Defensor Pacis.Richard A. Lee Jr - 2019 - Theoria 66 (159):23-51.
    In Defensor Pacis Marsilius of Padua grounds the legitimacy of the kingdom, or the state, on the peace that rule provides the citizens. Looking at Aristotle’s claim that the civitas strives to be like an animal in which all parts in the right proportion for the sake of health, Marsilius argues that ‘the parts of the kingdom or state will be well disposed for the sake of peace [tranquilitas].’ Marsilius goes on to define peace as the agreeable ‘belonging together’ of (...)

    The May Day Machine: Assemblages in Nineteenth-Century Chicago.Richard A. Lee - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):63.
    The conceptual ambiance, the assemblage of ideas, of A Thousand Plateaus enables a rich kind of tracing of the logic or set of logics related to desires and forces while it makes difficult, if not impossible, a certain form of understanding.2 The topic of “American assemblages” seemed as though it might be a useful figure under which to think through the coming together of labor and its dissolution at the end of the nineteenth century in Chicago. As I will argue (...)

    Tracing the Logic of Force: Roger Bacon’s De Multiplicatione Specierum.Richard A. Lee - 2003 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 8 (1):103-120.
    Roger Bacon’s On the Multiplication of Species is an attempt to analyze efficient causality in terms of forces that are multiplied from agent to patient. This essay argues that this has significant implications for the traditional distinction between appearance and reality in that Bacon refuses to think efficient cause in terms of some other reality that does not appear and yet is the ground of appearance.

  19. The Thought of Matter: Materialism, Conceptuality and the Transcendence of Immanence.Richard A. Lee - 2015 - Rowman & Littlefield International.
    The Thought of Matter advances current debates around materialism, arguing that matter is the ‘other’ of thought and, therefore, requires a method that allows that other to emerge in thought without being appropriated by it.
