Two Dogmas of Empiricism Willard Van Orman Quine Originally published in The Philosophical Review 60 (1951): 20-43. Reprinted in W.V.O. Quine, From a Logical Point of View (Harvard University Press, 1953; second, revised, edition 1961), with the following alterations: "The version printed here diverges from the original in footnotes and in other minor respects: §§1 and 6 have been abridged where they encroach on the preceding essay ["On What There Is"], and §§3-4 have been expanded at points."
Hume - A Treatise of Human Nature
Hume: Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding MORAL philosophy, or the science of human nature, may be treated after two different manners; each of which has its peculiar merit, and may contribute to the entertainment, instruction, and reformation of mankind. The one considers man chiefly as born for action; and as influenced in his measures by taste and sentiment; pursuing one object, and avoiding another, according to the value which these objects seem to possess, and according to the light in which they present themselves. As virtue, of all objects, is allowed to be the most valuable, this species of philosophers paint her in the most amiable colours; borrowing all helps from poetry and eloquence, and treating their subject in an easy and obvious manner, and such as is best fitted to please the imagination, and engage the affections.
Edmund L. Gettier From Analysis 23 ( 1963): 121-123. Transcribed into hypertext by Andrew Chrucky, Sept. 13, 1997. Various attempts have been made in recent years to state necessary and sufficient conditions for someone's knowing a given proposition. Is Justified True Belief Knowledge?
Hey kids, ever wondered how Western philosophical thought has evolved over the past few thousand years, and why, and what we should think and do about it now? Well, we can start with a new book by What Computers Can't Do author and iTunesU podcast-lecture rock star Hubert Dreyfus of UC Berkeley and his former student Sean Dorrance Kelly, now Harvard's chair of philosophy. All Things Shining, it's called, and maybe that sounds too optimistic for a book whose ambition is partly to explain how the various heavy hitters of human understanding wound up giving mankind a self-image that "destroys the possibility of a meaningful and worthwhile existence." But these authors, gods bless them, have in mind an antidote to all that destruction — namely, "the basic phenomenon of Homeric polytheism." That is, now that we live with a tyranny of too many choices in life, we sure could use an array of ancient-Greek-style gods to guide us through them.

Early Modern Texts - Philosophers and Philosophy Topics On this site you will find versions of some classics of early modern philosophy, and a few from the 19th century, prepared with a view to making them easier to read while leaving intact the main arguments, doctrines, and lines of thought. The better to focus on preparing more texts, Jonathan Bennett has handed over the ownership and maintenance of this site to Peter Millican and Amyas Merivale, of Hertford College, Oxford. Returning visitors will notice that we have given the site a fresh lick of paint, but the core content is unchanged. In particular, we will continue to host Jonathan Bennett’s articles here, and - of course - all of his wonderful translations of early modern texts. Any questions or comments about this site should now be directed to Peter Millican (see the Contact page).
