The Socratic Fallacy In The Early Dialogues, Priscilla Sakezles Dec 1999

The Socratic Fallacy In The Early Dialogues, Priscilla Sakezles

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

In ‘Plato’s Euthyphro: An Analysis and Commentary’ (33), Peter Geach attributes two assumptions to Socrates which he calls the ‘Socratic Fallacy’ since its locus classicus is the early Socratic dialogues:

(A) if you know you are correctly predicating a given term ‘T,’ you must ‘know what it is to be T’ in the sense of being able to give a general criterion for a thing’s being T;

(B) it is no use to try and arrive at the meaning of‘T’ by giving examples of things that are T.

Geach claims that (B) follows from (A) because assuming ...


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 The author draws on both unpublished works of Grote and also a wide range of published material, with emphasis on the History of Greece and Plato and the other Companions of Sokrates, to give us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 ‘Digression’ In Plato’S Theaetetus: A New Interpretation, David Levy Dec 1999

The ‘Digression’ In Plato’S Theaetetus: A New Interpretation, David Levy

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

In this paper I argue that the “digression” (Tht. 172D-177C) plays a central role in Plato’s overall critique of Protagoras’s measure doctrine. Properly understood, the digression itself constitutes an argument against accepting a particular interpretation of the measure doctrine. This argument is based upon the unacceptable moral and political consequences that result from an institutional validation of extreme conventionalism. Commentators, such as Robin Waterfield and Gilbert Ryle, who dismiss this passage as pointless, and translators, such as Gwynneth Matthews, who omit the passage entirely, fail to draw the important connections among the measure doctrine, the Athenian legal system ...


The Transformation Of The Investigation Of F In Plato's Dramas Of Definition, David Wolfsdorf Dec 1999

The Transformation Of The Investigation Of F In Plato's Dramas Of Definition, David Wolfsdorf

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

In this paper I consider which formal characteristics, if any, occur in the investigations. In addition, I am interested in whether there is a transformation of formal characteristics among the dramas of definition.

Methodologically, the paper focuses on what I call the surface claims and arguments of the text. By that I mean the explicit claims and arguments Socrates and his interlocutors make about the identity of F. This aspect of the texts is distinguished from their literary or dramatic aspects as well as any indirect claims and arguments about F, however these might occur. The neglect of the literary ...

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 ...

Bonjour, Kant, And The 'A Priori', Kurt Mosser Nov 1999

Bonjour, Kant, And The 'A Priori', Kurt Mosser

Philosophy Faculty Publications

In his 1985 The Structure of Empirical Knowledge, Laurence BonJour presented a compelling and articulate defense of a coherence theory of knowledge. Following what he called a “dialectical” strategy, he began by indicating the central issue at stake: the justification of empirical knowledge claims. He then argued that no available foundationalist or coherentist account could provide that justification, and that all such attempts either end in sheer dogmatism, or succumb to skepticism. After a lengthy critical discussion, he turned to developing a argument for his own view, combining a correspondence theory of truth with a coherence theory of justification. He ...

C.S. Lewis: The Abolition Of Man, Christopher Horton Nov 1999

C.S. Lewis: The Abolition Of Man, Christopher Horton

Inklings Forever: Published Colloquium Proceedings 1997-2016

In The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis calls the natural, moral law of the universe by the name Tao. This essay seeks to define Lewis’s idea of the Tao, demonstrate where the principle of the Tao is reinforced in Lewis’s fictional works, and conclude with Lewis’s ‘prophetical’ warnings to modern humanity’s rebellion against the Tao.

A Chestertonian Approach To Humor, Robert Moore-Jumonville

Inklings Forever: Published Colloquium Proceedings 1997-2016

As a journalist, G.K. Chesterton used his humor to engage intellectual opponents who might not have otherwise listened. Borrowing from Chesterton’s tone and manner, this paper explores the role of humor in the realms of life, academics and faith as seen in Chesterton’s own writing.
