    What's Wrong with Rex? Hegel on Animal Defect and Individuality.Sebastian Rand - 2015 - European Journal of Philosophy 23 (1):68-86.
    In his Logic, Hegel argues that evaluative judgments are comparisons between the reality of an individual object and the standard for that reality found in the object's own concept. Understood in this way, an object is bad insofar as it fails to be what it is according to its concept. In his recent Life and Action, Michael Thompson has suggested that we can understand various kinds of natural defect in a similar way, and that if we do, we can helpfully (...)

  2. The Importance and Relevance of Hegel’s Philosophy of Nature.Sebastian Rand - 2007 - Review of Metaphysics 61 (2):379 - 400.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's 'Philosophy of Nature' has often been accused of promoting a view of nature fundamentally at odds with the modern scientific understanding of nature. I show this accusation to be false by pointing to two aspects of Hegel's treatment of nature: its rejection of the 'a priori/a posteriori' distinction, and its connection to Hegel's conception of autonomy as freedom from givenness. I give a reading of Hegel's treatment of the laws of motion along these lines, and I (...)

    Organism, Normativity, Plasticity: Canguilhem, Kant, Malabou.Sebastian Rand - 2011 - Continental Philosophy Review 44 (4):341-357.
    Some of Catherine Malabou’s recent work has developed her conception of plasticity (originally deployed in a reading of Hegelian Aufhebung ) in relation to neuroscience. This development clarifies and advances her attempt to bring contemporary theory into dialogue with the natural sciences, while indirectly indicating her engagement with the French tradition in philosophy of science and philosophy of medicine, especially the work of Georges Canguilhem. I argue that we can see her development of plasticity as an answer to some specific (...)

    Apriority, Metaphysics, and Empirical Content in Kant's Theory of Matter.Sebastian Rand - 2012 - Kantian Review 17 (1):109-134.
    This paper addresses problems associated with the role of the empirical concept of matter in Kant's Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science, offering an interpretation emphasizing two points consistently neglected in the secondary literature: the distinction between logical and real essence, and Kant's claim that motion must be represented in pure intuition by static geometrical figures. I conclude that special metaphysics cannot achieve its stated and systematically justified goal of discovering the real essence of matter, but that Kant requires this failure (...)

    Apriority From the Grundlage to the System of Ethics.Sebastian Rand - 2008 - Philosophy Today 52 (3-4):348-354.
    In this essay I discuss Fichte's changing understanding of the a priori/a posteriori distinction from the earliest writings on the Wissenschaftslehre to the System of Ethics. I argue that Fichte moves decisively away from the Kantian conception of the a priori, due to his development of the ideal/real distinction in his elaboration of the Wissenschaftslehre. Since Fichte's conception of apriority is not Kant's, we can only understand his claim that the System of Ethics can provide an answer a priori to (...)

    Experimenting at the Boundaries of Life: Organic Vitality in Germany Around 1800 by Joan Steigerwald.Sebastian G. Rand - 2021 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 59 (1):154-155.
    Throughout her wide-ranging study of methods, concepts, and controversies in the life sciences in Germany around 1800, Joan Steigerwald handles an astonishing variety of sources with insight and verve. The story she tells, in both its sweep and its details, challenges entrenched habits and comfortable assumptions of the existing literature and deepens our understanding of the relevant topics, figures, and debates.The book has a substantial introduction, six chapters, and a brief conclusion. The introduction addresses both general and topic-specific historiological concerns, (...)

    Hegel’s Anti-Ontology of Nature.Sebastian Rand - 2017 - In Marjolein Oele & Gerard Kuperus (eds.), Ontologies of Nature. Springer Verlag.
    In this essay I argue that Hegel’s system includes no ontology of nature, either in any traditional sense, or in any specifically Hegelian sense, of “ontology.” What Hegel provides instead is a philosophy of nature in which specifically natural activities generate specifically natural differences and identities out of themselves. I make my case first by considering the meaning of “ontology” Hegel inherited from Wolff and Kant. I show that Hegel rejected this sense of ontology for his own philosophy, in part (...)

    Reason in the World: Hegel's Metaphysics and Its Philosophical Appeal by James Kreines.Sebastian Rand - 2016 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 54 (3):508-509.
    James Kreines’s Reason in the World offers readers—including those not already steeped in Hegelian terminology and argument—a compelling interpretation of key elements in Hegel’s Logic. It reconstructs Hegel’s arguments clearly and straightforwardly; it treats a tightly coherent group of topics; and it engages thoroughly with the most important secondary literature in German and English. But while these are all excellent qualities, its truly distinguishing contribution to recent debates in the history of philosophy is the case it makes for Kant, rather (...)
