Aristotle On Knowledge, Nous And The Problems Of Necessary Truth, Thomas Kiefer Dec 2001

Aristotle On Knowledge, Nous And The Problems Of Necessary Truth, Thomas Kiefer

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

In this paper, I argue that nous for Aristotle concerns necessary truths. (1) Nous is the solution to the dilemma raised in Posterior Analytics I.3. (2) Knowledge and nous have necessary truths as their subject matter, and are identical to this subject matter. (3) This position creates two problems concerning (i) the innateness of knowledge and nous, and (ii) the mind-dependency of necessary truths. (4) The end of DA III.5 reveals an attempt to solve (i) and (ii): The necessary truths of knowledge and nous are for us innate in a certain way, appear to come to be ...


"Clarifying The Nature Of The Infinite": The Development Of Metamathematics And Proof Theory, Jeremy Avigad, Erich H. Reck Dec 2001

"Clarifying The Nature Of The Infinite": The Development Of Metamathematics And Proof Theory, Jeremy Avigad, Erich H. Reck

Department of Philosophy

We discuss the development of metamathematics in the Hilbert school, and Hilbert’s proof-theoretic program in particular. We place this program in a broader historical and philosophical context, especially with respect to nineteenth century developments in mathematics and logic. Finally, we show how these considerations help frame our understanding of metamathematics and proof theory today.

Bayesian Epistemology And Epistemic Conditionals: On The Status Of The Export-Import Laws, Horacio Arlo-Costa

Department of Philosophy

The notion of probability occupies a central role in contemporary epistemology and cognitive science. Nevertheless, the classical notion of probability is hard to reconcile with the central notions postulated by the epistemological tradition.

馬克思主義概念翻譯在中國1900-1949, Yongye Xiao Nov 2001

馬克思主義概念翻譯在中國1900-1949, Yongye Xiao

Theses & Dissertations

本論文探討馬克思主義經由翻譯介紹到中國的歷史過程。馬克思主義作為中共立國的意識形態,已經成為一種權威的話語。但在本世紀初經由翻譯傳入的馬克思主義,並不是一套教條。在二十世紀初到二、三十年代間,多種思潮互相衝擊,馬克思主義在翻譯傳入的過程中,也是知識份子分析社會矛盾性質和思考社會變革的思想資源。對馬克思主義的翻譯與介紹,揭示了翻譯本身是在一定的文化政治的位置中的論述踐行。

本論文以幾個馬克思主義概念為例,將這些概念置放於其歷史脈絡中,考察這些概念在個別知識份子的著述中怎樣被理解,討論翻譯的過程中牽涉的各種閱讀策略,並嘗試說明它們如何構築各種身分。論文嘗試說明這些概念的互譯性是藉著種種論述與實踐建立起來的。

Logical Form And The Vernacular, Reinaldo Elugardo, Robert Stainton Sep 2001

Logical Form And The Vernacular, Reinaldo Elugardo, Robert Stainton

Robert J. Stainton

Vernacularism is the view that logical forms are fundamentally assigned to natural language expressions, and are only derivatively assigned to anything else, e.g., propositions, mental representations, expressions of symbolic logic, etc. In this paper, we argue that Vernacularism is not as plausible as it first appears because of non-sentential speech. More specifically, there are argument-premises, meant by speakers of non-sentences, for which no natural language paraphrase is readily available in the language used by the speaker and the hearer. The speaker can intend this proposition and the hearer can recover it (and its logical form). Since they cannot, by ...

Are There Reasons To Be Moral?, Lois M. Eveleth Sep 2001

Are There Reasons To Be Moral?, Lois M. Eveleth

Faculty and Staff - Articles & Papers

This question has developed, post Hobbes, in two directions. In one understanding, morality is reasonable, either because it coincides with self-interest or because it contributes to self-interest. An alternative approach rejects the primacy of reason and looks instead to human intuition, human affections or the will for an account of being moral.
