Anaxagoras On The Composition Of Matter, David Sider Dec 1975

Anaxagoras On The Composition Of Matter, David Sider

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

We will try to ignore the often-repeated "everything in everything," which if taken literally leads to an infinite regress. We hope that Anaxagoras' theory of the composition of matter can be established by first examining his more straightforward and conventional statements; then, perhaps, the paradox will take care of itself.


Anaxagoras' Theory Of Change: A Response To Parmenides, David J. Furley Dec 1975

Anaxagoras' Theory Of Change: A Response To Parmenides, David J. Furley

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

Assuming that Anaxagoras was responding to Parmenides, I shall examine the nature of his response. I aim to show that the fragments and other evidence can and should be interpreted as belonging to a system whose main purpose is to provide an apparatus for explaining change without "coming to be" or "perishing".


Xenophanes' Skepticism, James H. Lesher Dec 1975

Xenophanes' Skepticism, James H. Lesher

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

The character of Xenophanes’ skepticism was the subject of dispute as early as the 4th century BC and the central statement of his position, fragment 34, has been variously interpreted ever since. In this paper I argue that Xenophanes’ remarks about knowledge are best understood in connection with his distinctive, austere conception of the divine (B 23-26) and related rejection of the claims of seers and diviners to gain access to divine matters (A 52). When Xenophanes denies that there ever was or will be anyone who “knows about the gods and such things as I say about all things ...


Anaxagoras And Epicurus, Margaret Reesor Dec 1975

Anaxagoras And Epicurus, Margaret Reesor

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

It is, I believe, clear that Epicurus adopted an interpretation of the impression which was alien to Democritus’ atomic theory and closer to that of Anaxagoras. Anaxagoras may have believed that the qualities of the impression accurately reproduced the attributes of the objects; and he certainly regarded the objects of sense perception as true. He held that that from which an entity emerges had predominant parts which were the same as the predominant parts of the entity. Anaxagoras' experiments suggest that he was aware in some degree of the principle of confirmatory evidence and evidence to the contrary. His form ...

Morphogenesis: Some Elements Of Aristotelian Embryology And Some Ontological Ramifications, Montgomery Furth Oct 1975

Morphogenesis: Some Elements Of Aristotelian Embryology And Some Ontological Ramifications, Montgomery Furth

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

Aristotle's metaphysical theory of individual objects and their essences is preeminently aimed at formulating and resolving several fundamental issues regarding biological objects, living things. For this reason the biological writings are in some ways a better resource than the Metaphysics for a vivid intuitive conceptualization of what 'substantial being' concretely comes to.


How To Apply The Categorical Imperative, Nelson T. Potter Jr. Oct 1975

How To Apply The Categorical Imperative, Nelson T. Potter Jr.

Faculty Publications - Department of Philosophy

The aim of the present paper is to give a new positive interpretation of how the categorical imperative is to be applied. There have been critiques of Kant's applications and defenses of Kant against such criticism, but it is surprisingly seldom that a positive interpretation of how the categorical imperative is to be applied has been offered.

An Existential Appraisal Of Selected Nigerian Fiction, Jim Nesin Omatseye May 1975

An Existential Appraisal Of Selected Nigerian Fiction, Jim Nesin Omatseye

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

One of the two aims of this research was to elucidate from a philosophical perspective a selected body of Nigerian fiction. The second objective has been to investigate the dominant themes of the two selected novelists and relate them to existentialism.

The most essential theme was found to be colonialism and its disruption of the African culture. It was implied in the works of the novelists that authentic African culture was dislocated by British imperialism in Nigeria. The use of force and other features of power was manifested in the takeover. Through various literary devices and innuendo they suggest that ...

Possible Theological Interpretation Of The Materialist Rationalism And Theory Of Obligation Of Thomas Hobbes, A. Brandt Henderson Apr 1975

Possible Theological Interpretation Of The Materialist Rationalism And Theory Of Obligation Of Thomas Hobbes, A. Brandt Henderson

Philosophy Undergraduate Theses

Enlightened by Euclidian Geometry, that was the basis for an entire philosophical system, Thomas Hobbes remains today one of the most controversial figures of the Modern Era. Espousing a rationalistic, mechanistic, and materialist interpretation of the cosmos, Hobbes served as an inspiration to scientific thinkers and as a source of heresy to the institution of the Church. For almost three centuries, his thought has been interpreted as a closed system of an atheistic nature. From the pages of Hobbes' Leviathan, arises a system which he constructed as the most profound materialistic system in the world in regard to physics, biology ...


Hegel On The Meanings Of Poetry, Gary Shapiro Apr 1975

Hegel On The Meanings Of Poetry, Gary Shapiro

Philosophy Faculty Publications

Since Socrates' attack on poetry, philosophers and critics have been faced with the problem of reconciling two convictions which seem equally pressing. While poetry (or imaginative literature) is and has been valued as a source of insight and knowledge, it also seems clear that poetic meaning is of a rather different sort than that found in science, ordinary language, or (to introduce the classical contrast) prose. Philosophical theories of poetry, then, take one of two forms: either they deny one of these two beliefs, implying perhaps that poetry has only nonsensical or literal meaning, or they provide a cognitive analysis ...


The Good Society And The Complexity Of The Structure Of Morality, Hector-Neri Castaneda Apr 1975

The Good Society And The Complexity Of The Structure Of Morality, Hector-Neri Castaneda

IUSTITIA

In this paper I have two main purposes: (i) to outline the most general structure of morality, which is the fundamental schema of a good society, and (ii) to indict most of the mainstream views in the history of moral philosophy for their unchecked tendency toward reductionism and oversimplification. The tendency to oversimplification appears both in the gathering of the data for philosophical theorizing and in the theorizing itself. I will also point out another major recurring error in moral philosophy. I envision the day when moral philosophers, after examining their ontological and their methodological assumptions, rally to the banner ...
