George Grote On Plato And Athenian Democracy: A Study In Classical Reception, Kyriakos N. Demetriou Dec 1999

George Grote On Plato And Athenian Democracy: A Study In Classical Reception, Kyriakos N. Demetriou

Kyriakos N. Demetriou

George Grote (1794-1871) belonged to the leading Philosophic Radicals of early Victorian Britain. A student of James Mill and Jeremy Bentham, a self-educated classical scholar, and a committed utilitarian liberal, he succeeded in revolutionizing the field of Greek studies. The author draws on both unpublished works of Grote and also a wide range of published material, with emphasis on the History of Greece and Plato and the other Companions of Sokrates, to give us this study of the historian's thought and understanding of classical Greece. The book starts with an examination of Grote's early intellectual influences and then ...

The Coming Slavery: The Determinism Of Herbert Spencer, Mario J. Rizzo Nov 1999

The Coming Slavery: The Determinism Of Herbert Spencer, Mario J. Rizzo

Mario Rizzo

Herbert Spencer (1820–1903) believed that Victorian Britain was moving toward a society of total regimentation (slavery). This movement was part of a cosmic process of evolution and dissolution. While the long-run (but not ultimate) destination of society was a higher form of social organization based on voluntary and complex interpersonal relationships, the immediate tendency was retrograde—a movement away from the liberation of mankind from the bondage of previous eras. This Article explores (1) the reasons for the retrograde movement, (2) its inevitability, and (3) the role of ideas in the process. The general conclusion is that in an ...

Problems With Peirce's Concept Of Abduction, Michael H.G. Hoffmann Jan 1999

Problems With Peirce's Concept Of Abduction, Michael H.G. Hoffmann

Michael H.G. Hoffmann

Abductive reasoning takes place in forming "hypotheses" in order to explain "facts." Thus, the concept of abduction promises an understanding of creativity in science and learning. It raises, however, also a lot of problems. Some of them will be discussed in this paper: After analyzing the difference between induction and abduction (1), I shall discuss Peirce's claim that there is a "logic" of abduction (2). The thesis is that this claim can be understood, if we make a clear distinction between inferential elements and perceptive elements of abductive reasoning. For Peirce, the creative act of forming explanatory hypotheses and ...

Should We Strive For Integrity?, Damian Cox, Marguerite La Caze, Michael Levine Dec 1998

Should We Strive For Integrity?, Damian Cox, Marguerite La Caze, Michael Levine

Damian Cox

Even by people whose moral views diverge widely, integrity is commonly thought of as something worthwhile, a valuable personal characteristic. It is, consequently, something we commonly suppose worth striving to cultivate both in ourselves and in those under our care. Nancy Schauber (1996) offers a provocative challenge to this conventional wisdom - arguing (in all seriousness) that integrity is either something we possess simply in virtue of being persons or else it is not something worth having. An analysis of her truncated accounts of integrity and commitment will show why her argument fails. That is does fail is a victory for ...


葡萄酒和酒瓶 -新儒家和中国权利思想, Stephen C. Angle Dec 1998

葡萄酒和酒瓶 -新儒家和中国权利思想, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

Joseph Levenson argued that the discontinuity between traditional modern in China was so stark that even to the extent that things appeared similar, this was a matter of "new wine in old bottles": the words may have been the same, but what they meant had changed decisively. On the surface, "quanli" would appear a perfect example of Levenson's metaphor, since it seems to have been transformed from a derogatory word for the powers and profits that tempt the uncultivated - as seen, for instance, in the Xunzi - into "rights", the very foundation of modern ethics, politics and law. There is ...
