I love laughing when I read…

“In Part III, we begin the study of philosophy itself from the perspective of cognitive science. We apply these analytical methods to important moments in the history of philosophy: Greek metaphysics, including the pre-Socratics, Plato, and Aristotle [ca. 600-300 BC]; [_________________________; ] Descartes’s theory of mind and Enlightenment faculty psychology [ca. 1500-1800 AD]; Kant’s moral theory; and analytical philosophy. These methods, we argue, lead to new and deep insights into these great intellectual edifices.

  1. Nothing like being thorough in your history of philosophy. It’s not like anything happened from Aristotle to Descrates…right?! This is amazing, but not too surprising (unfortunately).
