Giorgio Tonelli (1967) reincarnation The doctrine variously called transmigration of souls, metempsychosis, palingenesis, rebirth, and “reincarnation” has been and continues to be widely believed. What produced this renewal of interest is unknown, but it is said that it was provoked by a lecture he heard L. His own efforts in this area were devoted to a syn- thesis of the new science of psychology and traditional philosophy; the detail with which he undertook to understand the work of such contemporary psychologists as Wilhelm Wundt and the developments in medical psychology were radically new for his time.

In our own day such writers frequently follow Paul Tillich’s definition of an atheist as someone who believes that “life is shallow” and of an irreligious person as someone who has “no object of ultimate concern.” However, the use of such definitions to do away with unbelievers achieves a victory which is purely illusory. The study of man, they held, must be reduced to physics and physiology. Nature, or reality as it appears to us in objects appre- hended, is divisible, according to Johnson, into three irre- ducible classes—the physical (that is, the sensible), the emotional, and the intellectual (thoughts and concepts, which Johnson called “intellections”).

Uniwersytetu Wroc%awskiego. 1984–1992 irregular. In Meditation VI, however, he has recourse to the same considerations, although they must now be viewed in the context of the view that perception is a faculty of the mind plus body and does not express the essence of the mind alone, which is concerned solely with thinking. Between 1925 and 1929 he took an active part in the Eurasian movement, becoming the leading theoretician of its left wing characterized by pro-Soviet views.

There seem to be, therefore, anaphoric pronouns that are neither bound nor straightforwardly referential. unbound anaphora A plausible paraphrase of (9) is (9"): (9") Jim bought some pigs and Harry vaccinated the pigs Jim bought. For most of the ishraqis, what things are depends on degrees of their luminosity or light, not on their essences.

Madrid: Ediciones de los Papeles de Son Armadans, 1958. The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy. 2nd ed. The plausibility of this widely accepted principle of modal reasoning (that what is possibly not possible is not really possible at all) may be more apparent when stated in the jargon of “possible worlds”: If there is a world that is possible from our perspective (that is, from the point of view of the actual world, this other world represents a way things could have been); and if, from the perspective of that other world, some imagined state of affairs or circumstance is not possible; then that imagined state of affairs is not possible from the point of view of the actual world either—that is, it is simply not possible.

The collapse of the Soviet Union, and the trend away from dictatorships and toward democracies in Latin America and elsewhere in the 1990s, inspired Francis Fukuyama (The End of History and the Last Man, 1992), to revive Hegel’s idea of the End of History. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1992. He argued that evolution did not dispose of the problem of teleology, since life itself, whose origin from nonliving atoms is so mathematically improbable, requires an explanatory hypothesis.

On the other hand, Littré was inclined, against Comte, to admit psychology as an independent discipline. Soliloquy enables us to step back and critically assess our desires—scrutinizing their causes and their place in the scheme of our aims and concerns. Most dramatically, for example, legal contexts impose demands and standards on the memory narratives witnesses must produce that differ greatly from the norms operating in other remembering activities. These two words do not mean endless in time and spaces; they mean the genuine experience of the central points of time and space, the now and the here.

It was related above how Tarski deduced the incompleteness (and hence the undecidability) of arithmetic from his general theorem. Wolff ’s order of nature, no matter which logical moves he made, kept provoking political and clerical critique. That is, the total energy of the system is a conserved quantity of the dynamics: If one state evolves into another, each has the same total energy. Finally, the ascetic life might be advanced as a means to virtue. The “up” result from the apparatus is associated with the eigenstate

On measurement see Ernest Nagel “Measurement,” in Danto and Morgenbesser, op. cit., pp. 121–140. The thing perceived as silver motivates one’s effort and action (including speech). When Descartes criticized Voetius in his letter to Father Dinet, Voetius responded by arranging for Martin Schoock, a professor at Groningen and a disciple of his, to write a book that accused Descartes, among other things, of atheism and of fathering numerous illegitimate chil- dren. (Descartes did, in fact, have one illegitimate child, a daughter whom he was quite fond of but who died in 1640, at the age of five.) The full story of the Utrecht affair—which ultimately involved lawsuits for libel, charges of perjury, and a prohibition on any discussion of Descartes, pro or con—is too complex to tell here (for further details, see Verbeek 1992).
