Methodology, Metaphysics and the History of Science: In Memory of Benjamin Nelson

This option of papers that have been provided (or approximately so! ) to the Boston Colloquium for the Philosophy of technology in the course of the seventies really re­ offers essentially the most worrying problems with medical wisdom in those years. To the far away observer, it may possibly look that the protection of rational criteria, goal reference, methodical self-correction, even the distin­ guishing of the silly from the practical and the truth-seeking from the ideological, has approximately collapsed.

The other unfinished business in our express trip through history is what happens to the idea of ''matter," which was so important in Greek and medieval thought. For some philosophers "matter" is the name for an answer to a certain question. For others, of whom Leibniz was the first Western representative, it is merely a name for the question itself, not an answer. , definite qualities or properties (essential or accidental to the things), survives through the change? Aristotle said, the "matter" survives, and this, with the essential forms, constitutes the identity of the things or substances.
