Reality is spiritual, the Absolute, and collectivities have their part to play in the teleological “unfolding” of the Absolute. It would be a mistake akin to that in the fishing story to extrapolate too eagerly from observations of local conditions to the wider universe if these locally observed features are a necessary condition of one’s being here to observe anything. Those who claim fictional characters exist, deny that they are people, monsters, or anything else that could stir us to feel as we ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PHILOSOPHY 2nd edition • 367 LITERATURE, PHILOSOPHY OF ference in propositional attitude (believing that versus imagining that) there are cognitive and behavioral differences as well.

His magnum opus, to be titled “Ethic Epistles,” was to consist of four books: the Essay on Man, as we now have it in four epistles; four more epistles dealing with “the extent and limits of human Reason,” arts and sciences both “useful” and “unuseful,” “the different Capacities of Men,” and the “Use of Learning,” science and wit; the “Science of Politics,” to treat “of Civil and Religious Society in their full extent”; and “Private Ethics or Practical Morality.” The plan—but not the philosophy—is curiously reminiscent of that of David Hume as stated in the “Advertisement” to the Treatise of Human Nature (1739). (Incidentally, Hume probably took from Pope such terms as “the science of man,” “the science of human nature,” “the soul’s calm sunshine,” and “the Feast of Reason.”) In 1741 Hume was to devote an entire essay, “That Politics may be reduced to a Science,” to the refutation of Pope’s lines (Essay on Man, III, 303–304): “For Forms of Government let fools contest;/Whate’er is best admister’d is best.” The Essay on Man was the only part of the magnum opus completed as planned.

Thus John Stuart Mill was on sound ground in insisting, against Bentham, that there are qualitative differences between “pleasures.” These doubts are reinforced by the fact that here we are without external support for the postulation of basic conscious qualities. Aside from this putative special use of special lekta, the Epicureans’ philosophy of language seems to have remained remarkably faithful to their fundamental sensationalism.

Looking at the ticks of the clock, the special relativistic metric entails that B will conclude that the clock in A’s frame is running slow. According to Whewell, the theory of induction, which had been examined to the point of exhaustion after Francis Bacon formulated it as a program for future sci- ence, should be taken up again in view of the fact that the sciences called inductive have been actually established.

However, we can ask if, assuming we do not start from a racist or sexist perspective, an evolutionary study of racial or sexual differences will push us in that direction. It seems plausible that if one understands the premises and the conclusion of a valid argument, then one must also understand the conditional whose antecedent is the conjunction of the premises and whose consequent is the conclusion. The future holds possibilities of surprise for all our beliefs.

Such statements have been interpreted as indicating a radical insincerity in John’s thinking, a covert mocking of Christian faith. Usually, such views are wedded to some version or other of sophisticated constructivism. Two outstanding works in phenomenological aesthetics have appeared. In his works, Wollheim argued that art is a form of life (in Ludwig Wittgenstein’s sense), artistic activity and appreciation requiring the existence of prac- tices and institutions, art being an essentially historical phenomenon, the changes to which it is inevitably subject affecting the conceptual structure that surrounds it.
