    Philosophical Piety in Response to Euthyphro’s Hubris.Will Britt - 2018 - Ancient Philosophy 38 (2):265-287.
    Through a close reading of Plato’s Euthyphro, I reopen an old question: what would it look like to think piously? Although the dialogue itself is aporetic with regard to the definition of piety as such, I show that a specifically philosophical piety emerges: namely, the capacity to deal well with sameness and difference. A look at central features of the dialogues that provide the Euthyphro’s dramatic context confirms this claim.

    Henry Jackson Watt.Will Britt - 2018 - In Evan Clarke & Andrea Staiti (eds.), The Sources of Husserl’s 'Ideas I'. De Gruyter. pp. 35-38.
    A biographical account of Watt's early 20th century work in experimental psychology, with philosophical evaluation of his significance as marking a middle position between Wundt's third-person experimental work and Husserl's first-person phenomenology. The piece goes on to interpret Husserl's Ideas I response to Watt's critique of self-observation.

    Why Friendship Justifies Becoming.Will Britt - unknown - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association:109-119.
    In his discussions of justice and of friendship in the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle appeals frequently—without much explanation—to temporal considerations. I take these indications as a key for sorting out the systematic significance of Aristotle’s claim that “when people are friends, there is no need for justice”. Anaximander’s fragmentary claim that coming-to-be is itself an injustice serves as a touchstone for the analysis; I ask whether and how Aristotle might agree with such a claim. I first isolate some problems, especially those (...)

    Sameness and Difference in the Piety of Thought.Will Britt - forthcoming - Sophia:1-25.
    The paper works out an account of the piety proper to philosophical thought. The investigation proceeds as a critical interpretation of three enigmatic claims made by Martin Heidegger about ‘the piety of thinking,’ but the paper is not simply exegetical; the interpretive work is constantly in service of an attempt to think through the phenomenon independently. Plato’s Euthyphro and Nietzsche’s critique of scientific piety both hover in the background of Heidegger’s pronouncements, and they are given special attention here. Through the (...)

    Gilles Deleuze on Sacher-Masoch and Sade. A Bergsonian Criticism of Freudian Psychoanalysis.Lode Lauwaert & William Britt - 2015 - Deleuze and Guatarri Studies 9 (2):153-184.
    In the long line of French Sade studies, Deleuze's essay Coldness and Cruelty marks out a special place. By discussing Masoch both in addition to and in contrast to Sade, Deleuze reveals the stakes of his book: he wants to unmask the concept of sadomasochism as a clinical nonentity. In their paper, the authors explain the arguments supporting this project and show their relation to Deleuze's reading of Bergson. They then argue that there is a second, similarly Bergsonian criticism of (...)

    John Haugeland: Dasein Disclosed : Harvard University Press, 2013, 336 Pp, $49.95 , ISBN: 0674072111.William Britt - 2014 - Continental Philosophy Review 47 (3-4):465-472.
    Three years after John Haugeland’s passing, we are privileged to take up the manuscript he labored over but was not granted the time to finish. That manuscript, from which this book as a whole gets its title, has been carefully edited for continuity by Joseph Rouse, who also provides us with plenty of context for making sense of it. Rouse’s lengthy Editor’s Introduction outlines the central peculiarities of Haugeland’s reading of Martin Heidegger and argues for the relevance of that reading (...)
