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

This option of papers that have been awarded (or approximately so! ) to the Boston Colloquium for the Philosophy of technological know-how in the course of the seventies quite re­ offers one of the most demanding problems with clinical wisdom in those years.

Sample text

Could it be the spirit’s own becoming that is at stake? But do the intellect and its product, the concept, tend precisely – as we have seen – to arrest becoming, to nullify it, and not at all to posit it. The intellect has always been what it was for Bergson, the executioner of becoming. And nevertheless, the fact remains: our terms match the categories and, in a sense, include them. Even becoming, which the intellect abolishes, or chops up into static, dead, concepts, even becoming can fully be discovered here, as it has the categories to correspond to its fluidity or precariousness.

In one way or another, any philosophical conception, in its entirety, ends up “falling into a circle” and, if it is consequent with itself, it finds itself forced to assent to the latter, which, according to us, will, directly or indirectly, be that of becoming within Being. Indeed, there is a typical objection, which comes back against all philosophical concepts and which can end up being accepted, in an attempt thereby to nullify its destructive character. It is their fundamental and inevitable circle.

What is the meaning of a “disjunctive” judgement? How original is it as a function of thought? It appears to us quite simply as a derivation of hypothetical judgement. The disjunctive is merely a modality of the hypothetical. 3 These eventualities, Kant specifies, coexist on an equal footing, they make up a “community”. But what does his example represent?
