  • Value in Fact: Naturalism and Normativity in Humeís Moral Psychology
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Hume, David, 1711-1776. Treatise of human nature.
    • Hume, David, 1711-1776 -- Ethics.
    Abstract:
      A standard view in contemporary moral philosophy is that a naturalistic account of human nature cannot be normative because there is an unbridgeable gap between explanations of what is the case and accounts of what ought to be. However, in Hume's account of the passions, specifically the passion of pride, he offers an account of our passional life that is descriptive yet value-laden. This enables what is a naturalistic account of human nature to, in fact, be normative.

  • Hume, Kant, and the "Antinomy of Taste"
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Hume, David, 1711-1776. Of the standard of taste.
    • Kant, Immanuel, 1724-1804. Kritik der Urteilskraft.
    • Aesthetics, Modern -- 18th century.
    Abstract:
      This paper traces the systematic connections between the structure of Hume's argument in "Of the Standard of Taste" and the way Kant presents the Antinomy of Taste in his Critique of Judgment. It is argued, however, that although there are striking parallels between the way Hume and Kant formulate their respective antinomies, there are significant differences in the way the two philosophers solve them. For while Hume's approach reflects his scepticism about the place of philosophy in common life, Kant's solution confirms his view that philosophy can effectively correct the errors into which human reason naturally falls.

  • Kant's Conception of Architectonic in its Historical Context
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Kant, Immanuel, 1724-1804. Kritik der reinen Vernunft.
    • Kant, Immanuel, 1724-1804 -- Language.
    • Reason.
    Abstract:
      This paper defends Kant's conception of architectonic as furthering emancipatory reforms of critical philosophy. The author argues that while Lambert's reform of architectonic was the catalyst for Kant's attention to the term, Rousseau was important for Kant's conception of what architectonical thinking should be for philosophy. Kant's cosmopolitan meaning of architectonic requires that it not be based on an analogy to an architect, but on that of a "teacher in the ideal" who attempts to further essential ends of human reason by discovering systems that can interrogate doctrines for their significance for the whole vocation of humanity.

  • Kantís Legal Metaphor and the Nature of a Deduction
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Kant, Immanuel, 1724-1804. Kritik der reinen Vernunft.
    • Kant, Immanuel, 1724-1804. Kritik der Urteilskraft.
    • Kant, Immanuel, 1724-1804 -- Language.
    Abstract:
      Building on work of Dieter Henrich, the essay argues that Kant's legal metaphors suggest that the Deductions in Kant's first two Critiques share a common structure. Each has a first part corresponding to the "factum" of a legal deduction, and a second part corresponding to a proof of the validity of a legal claim from this basis. The relevant factum in the first Critique is the fact--revealed by the Metaphysical Deduction--that the categories have a priori origins; in the second, it is the so-called 'Fact of Reason'. Each 'factum' both requires a proof and admits of one.

    Abstract:
