  1. Emergence, Evolution, and the Geometry of Logic: Causal Leaps and the Myth of Historical Development. [REVIEW]Stephen Palmquist - 2007 - Foundations of Science 12 (1):9-37.
    After sketching the historical development of “emergence” and noting several recent problems relating to “emergent properties”, this essay proposes that properties may be either “emergent” or “mergent” and either “intrinsic” or “extrinsic”. These two distinctions define four basic types of change: stagnation, permanence, flux, and evolution. To illustrate how emergence can operate in a purely logical system, the Geometry of Logic is introduced. This new method of analyzing conceptual systems involves the mapping of logical relations onto geometrical figures, following either (...)

  • Seria a Metafísica Essencial À Ciência E Ao Senso Comum?Rafael Sandoval - 2013 - Revista Opinião Filosófica 4 (2).
    Uma das declarações mais consensuais da História da Filosofia é a que diz que a Metafísica não é ciência, mas pensamento. Neste artigo, procurar-se-á defender a tese que a Metafísica é condição para o senso comum e a ciência. Primeiro, é mostrado que os termos ao qual nós utilizamos diariamente refletem nossa imagem de mundo. Quando pensamos e fazemos previsões, fazemos o uso espontâneo de termos com significado universal. Depois, é procurado evidenciar que a ciência naturalmente faz uso de termos (...)

  • Kant’s Model for Building the True Church: Transcending “Might Makes Right” and “Should Makes Good” Through the Idea of a Non-Coercive Theocracy.Stephen Palmquist - 2017 - Diametros 54:76-94.
    Kant’s Religion postulates the idea of an ethical community as a necessary requirement for humanity to become good. Few interpreters acknowledge Kant’s claims that realizing this idea requires building a “church” characterized by unity, integrity, freedom, and unchangeability, and that this new form of community is a non-coercive version of theocracy. Traditional theocracy replaces the political state of nature with an ethical state of nature ; non-coercive theocracy transcends this distinction, uniting humanity in a common vision of a divine legislator (...)
