The evolution-creationism controversy, in fact, has provided both scientific and legal forms of demarcation between science and pseudoscience. On this view, Luther taught that Christ is really and personally present in faith for the Christian. The others happen to land on tiny and rather barren islands from which they can barely scratch a living.

The articles on epistemology and ethics display a freshness seldom found in encyclopedias; they are readable, free of academicism, informative, and challenging. Words like “tendency,” “power,” “disposition,” and “capacity” lend themselves to circularities of this sort. the naturalistic fallacy is the identifying of goodness with any natural characteristic, such as pleasantness or being the object of desire. Abelard presents William’s posi- tions briefly in his Historia calamitatum 65–66, and William’s positions along with his criticisms at length in his Logica ingredientibus 1, Glosses on the “Isagoge” 11–17 and Logica nostrorum petitioni sociorum 512–517.

A free particle (one on which the total force is 0) moves at a constant velocity. In all the other cases, the new original sources generally bear out, while greatly enriching, the testimony of the older indirect evidence. Richard Wollheim (1987) begins by noticing cases in which one’s experience of a differentiated flat surface (a muddy wall or a frosty windowpane) involves two distinct aspects: (1) a configurational aspect, thanks to which one is visually aware (in a manner that is mostly veridical as far as it goes) of the surface itself and its variations in local color; and (2) a recognitional aspect, thanks to which one is visually aware of various robustly three-dimensional things, things that are not and are not believed to be before one’s eyes at the time of the experience (battling horsemen, dancers in gauzy dresses).

The Bible, according to Bruno, insofar as it errs on these points, is simply false. It is not clear, for example, that judgment involves compari- son to a paradigm. Reality, according to von Hügel, is indefinitely apprehensible, a fact that serves to explain both the revisionism of science and the grop- ings of religion.

The second, more controversial way of defending both rational egoism and the normativity thesis, is to accept moral realism, and then to insist that fulfillment of our moral duties will always, of necessity, further our ends. Seen from a militarist perspec- tive, other nations are competitive, aggressive, and averse to cooperation, the same traits that tend to be fostered primarily in men in a sexist society. Despite the ignorance, we can assert some sentences and deny others.

For Merleau-Ponty, choices, and especially political choices, must repeat a sense given in the past and open a sense continuing into the future. Whatever the proper inter- Toward the end of The Place of Value in a World of Fact, Köhler returns to two topics that had engaged him earlier, the dispute between mechanism and vitalism and the question of the precise metaphysical classification of his own theory. All of this contributed to Zeno’s formation of a powerful philosophical system whose internal articulation into three parts (logic, physics, ethics) was inspired by the Academic Xenocrates.

Second, Pannenberg argues that although God reveals himself to humankind through the process of history this is, unlike in Hegel, not a necessary, but rather a contingent relationship. In theory of knowledge, Herschel’s basic concept was the law of continuity, which for him defined the rational- ity of a system. In The German Ideology, Marx and Engels wrote that “division of labor and private property are, moreover, identical expressions.” This probably means that when products are made by specialists who do not themselves use them, then they must be exchanged by, or sold to, those who do and so must be owned by the original maker.

It is very natural to think, for example, that when a person sees something and says that it is red, that there was a property of qualitative redness that the person was aware of and that that property played a causal role in producing that person’s utterance. Consider the game in Figure 3: The game has two Nash equilibria in pure strategies: (a,c) and (b,d). Introduction to Classical Islamic Philosophy. 2nd ed. In particular, the construction of the paradox demonstrates an at least implicit awareness that: 1 = 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/32 + … or, in more modern notation: We can provide an intuitively compelling (although not mathematically rigorous) argument demonstrating this as follows.

Konvitz Professor of Law and Professor of Industrial and Labor Relations, Cornell University HISTORICAL SCHO OL OF JURISPRUDENCE Eva F. He took a similar stand concerning mathematics, which, he argued, can be applied to the world only in virtue of the fact that it describes that world. “Application,” in Anderson’s view, consists in drawing conclusions from what is being applied.
