Guide to the Study of Philosophy
Welcome to the study of philosophy; I hope that you will enjoy your pursuit of the discipline and find it rewarding in many ways. In this document, I've gathered some information that may be of assistance to you as you proceed through a formal course of study. You may also wish to consult the Teaching and Studying Resources page of Episteme Links and the Dictionary of Philosophical Terms and Names

Reading Philosophical Texts
The assignments in your course require you to engage in a close reading of significant texts written by the major philosophers of the Western tradition. Since you may have had little experience in dealing with material of this sort, the prospect may be a little daunting at first. Philosophical prose is carefully crafted to achieve its own purposes, and reading it well requires a similar degree of care. Here are a few suggestions:
  • Do the assigned reading
    The philosophical texts simply are the content of the course; if you do not read, you will not learn. Coming to class without having read and listening to the discourse of those who have is no substitute for grappling with the material on your own. You can't develop intellectual independence if you rely for your information on the opinions of other people, even when they happen to be correct.

43. Mill's "On Nature"
JS.Mill On Nature Lancaster Etext 1996 Please help yourself. Back to the topGo To Lancaster philosophy Department FIRST PAGE Björn s friendly guide to JS
On Nature
'On nature' was published in 1874 as the first of three essays in the volume Nature, The Utility of Religion and Theism This Lancaster edition has been prepared by the Philosophy Department at Lancaster University, UK.
Release 1: September 1996 The essay begins on
PAGE 7 of the 1904 edition "NATURE," "natural," and the group of words derived from them, or allied to them in etymology, have at all times filled a great place in the thoughts and taken a strong hold on the feelings of mankind. That they should have done so is not surprising when we consider what the words, in their primitive and most obvious signification, represent; but it is unfortunate that a set of terms which play so great a part in moral and metaphysical speculation should have acquired many meanings different from the primary one, yet sufficiently allied to it to admit of confusion. The words have thus become entangled in so many foreign associations, mostly of a very powerful and tenacious character, that they have come to excite, and to be the symbols of, feelings which their original meaning will by no means justify, and which have made them one of the most copious sources of false taste, false philosophy, false morality, and even bad law. The most important application of the Socratic Elenchus, as exhibited and improved by Plato, consists in dissecting large abstractions of this description; fixing down to a precise definition the meaning which as popularly used they merely shadow forth, and questioning and testing the common maxims and opinions in which they bear a part. It is to be regretted that among the instructive specimens of this kind of investigation which Plato has left, and to which subsequent times have been so much indebted for whatever intellectual clearness they have attained, he has not enriched posterity with a dialogue

45. Intercultural Communication
Exhibition and publication of art and texts. Departs from the thesis that, in philosophy and art, intercultural communication can occur on the level of equality.
- especially in the fields of philosophy and art PROF. DR. HEINZ KIMMERLE
(Stichting voor interculturele filosofie en kunst)
is located at Zoetermeer Netherlands; it devotes itself to the exhibition and publication of intercultural art, as well as philosophical research in close contact with different cultures and the publication of philosophical texts. At present intercultural communication takes place in many forms all over the world. We depart from the thesis that in the fields of philosophy and arts intercultural communication can happen on the level of equality.
The Foundation for Intercultural Philosophy and Arts works at the clarification of the theoretical principles for such a form of intercultural communication and at practicing it between philosophers and artists from different cultures.
A focus of the research is to engage in dialogues between African and Western philosophies. Partners are among others: the African Universities of Dakar, Abidjan, Ghana, Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Venda and the Western Universities of Rotterdam, Bochum, Vienna. Close cooperation exists with the Gesellschaft für Interkulturelle Philosophie which is resident in Cologne.
A key text for the research done is the introduction to the book:

Utilitarianism Egoism Justice Rights Theory ... Ethics Updates ". . . dedicated to promoting the thoughtful discussion of difficult moral issues."
Lawrence M. Hinman

University of San Diego
Classic Texts in Ethics Many major works in the history of ethics are now available on-line in electronic versions. Some are simply ASCI or text files; as such, they contain a minimum of formating, but otherwise are quite serviceably. These can easily be searched or downloaded, and take up relatively little room in proportion to the amount of text they contain. Other files are in RTF, Rich Text Format, a standard developed by Microsoft that most word processors can use. These contain formatting niceties such as italics not found in ASCI files. A few files, although none currently on this list, are in Adobe Acrobat format, a very robust format that allows extensive formatting possibilities. A viewer for these files is available without charge from Adobe . Finally, some files are in HTML, hypertext markup language. Special note should be made of the files available at the Perseus Project at Tufts University. They are HTML files that make full use of the hypertext character of HTML. Click on any highlighted word (e.g., a proper name in one of Plato's dislogues), and you will automatically be taken to the entry for that name in a classical encyclopedia. This is the wave of the future

51. Japanese Philosophy And Religion Books
Short reviews of English translations of numerous texts on these subjects.
Japanese Philosophy and Religion Books Below are a selection of books on Japanese philosophy and religion. As with the same section in Chinese studies it is important to choose good translations. As I'm not much of scholar so I can't gaurantee that the translations I list below are the best, but I select the books on what I know. A Book of Five Rings
by Miyamoto Musashi, Victor Harris (Translator)
  • I have heard from some friends that this translation is not very good, however, I don't know of any other good translations to list here (and there are many to choose from). This is a book allegedly written by Japan's most famous swordsman. It is a book of tactics and sword fighting but both in Japan and elsewhere it has become famous as a book on philosophy. Along with Sun Tzu's Art of War and the Tao Te Ching this is one of the three ultimate "Asian Geek" books that every tom, dick, and Japan-loving harry likes to have on his shelf or quote at parties. However, I guess it is as good a place as any to start a love for asian history and culture. I have to confess, I started that way...

    A brief discussion of the life and works of Rene Descartes, with links to electronic texts and additional information by Garth Kemerling.
    F A Q Dictionary ...
    scholastic philosophy and troubled by skepticism of the sort expounded by Montaigne , Descartes soon conceived a comprehensive plan for applying mathematical methods in order to achieve perfect certainty in human knowledge. During a twenty-year period of secluded life in Holland, he produced the body of work that secured his philosophical reputation. Descartes moved to Sweden in 1649, but did not survive his first winter there. Although he wrote extensively, Descartes chose not to publish his earliest efforts at expressing the universal method and deriving its consequences. The Regulae ad directionem ingenii Rules for the Direction of the Mind ) (1628) contain his first full statement of the principles underlying the method and his confidence in the success of their application. In Le Monde The World ) (1634), Descartes clearly espoused a Copernican astronomy, but he withheld the book from the public upon learning of Galileo's condemnation. Descartes finally presented (in French) his rationalist vision of the progress of human knowledge in the Discourse on Method ) (1637). In this

    An Alchemist's Treasure
    This page utilizes the Alchemy Is a Science Alchemy is a Science of Soul that results from an understanding of God, Nature, and Man. A perfect knowledge of any of one them cannot be obtained without the knowledge of the other two, for these three are one and inseparable. Alchemy is not merely an intellectual but a spiritual science, because that which belongs to the spirit can only be spiritually known. Nevertheless, it is also a science dealing with material things, for spirit and matter are only two opposite manifestations or poles of the eternal One. Alchemy Is an Art Alchemy is also an art, and as every art requires an artist to exercise it, likewise this divine science and art can be practiced only by those who are in possession of the divine power necessary for that purpose. It is true that the external manipulations required for the production of certain alchemical preparations may, like an ordinary chemical process, be taught to anybody capable of reasoning. However, the results that such a person would accomplish would be without life, for only he in whom the true life has awakened can awaken it from its sleep in matter and cause visible forms to grow from the primordial Chaos of nature. Spiritual Aspects Alchemy in its highest aspect deals with the spiritual regeneration of man and teaches how a god may be made out of a human being or, to express it more correctly, how to establish the conditions necessary for the development of divine powers in man, so that a human being may became a god by the power of God in the same sense that a seed becomes a plant by the aid of the Four Elements and the action of the invisible Fifth Element (the Quintessence).

    Life and Works


    The Self
    Internet Sources
    Soon after completing his studies at Edinburgh, Scottish philosopher David Hume began writing his comprehensive statement of the views he believed would contribute to philosophy no less than Newton's had to science. But the public reception for the three books of his magisterial Treatise of Human Nature (1739) was less than cordial, and Hume abandoned his hopes of a philosophical career in order to support his family as a librarian, historian, diplomat, and political essayist, a course of action he described in the autobiographical My Own Life (1776). Hume's Essays Moral and Political (1741-1742) found some success, and the multi-volume History of England (1754-1762) finally secured the modest livelihood for which he had hoped. Although he spent most of his life trying to produce more effective statements of his philosophical views, he did not live to see the firm establishment of his reputation by the criticisms of Kant and much later appreciation of the logical positivists The central themes of Book I of the Treatise receive a somewhat more accessible treatment in An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding (1748), a more popular summary of Hume's

    60. Machiavelli
    A discussion of the life and works of Machiavelli, with links to electronic texts and additional information.
    F A Q Dictionary ...
    Internet Sources
    Machiavelli originally wrote Principe The Prince ) (1513) in hopes of securing the favor of the ruling Medici family, and he deliberately made its claims provocative. The Prince is an intensely practical guide to the exercise of raw political power over a Renaissance principality. Allowing for the unpredictable influence of fortune, Machiavelli argued that it is primarily the character or vitality or skill of the individual leader that determines the success of any state. The book surveys various bold means of acquiring and maintaining the principality and evaluates each of them solely by reference to its likelihood of augmenting the glory of the prince while serving the public interest. It is this focus on practical success by any means, even at the expense of traditional moral values , that earned Machiavelli's scheme a reputation for ruthlessness, deception, and cruelty. His Dell'arte della guerra The Art of War ) (1520) explains in detail effective procedures for the acquisition, maintenance, and use of a military force. Even in his more leisurely reflections on the political process, Machiavelli often wrote in a similar vein. The Discorsi sopra la prima Deca di Tito Livio Discourses on Livy ) (1531) review the history of the Roman republic, with greater emphasis on the role of fortune and a clear
