Logic & the Workings of the Mind - The Logic of Ideas and Faculty Psychology in Early Modern Philosophy

£29.99

Product description

The papers collected in this volume address two closely related themes: the faculty psychology and the logic of the early modern period. The themes are related because, firstly, early modern logic - especially the modern "logic of ideas" was explicitly psychologistic. It dealt with "concepts" rather than terms, "judgements" rather than propositions, and "reasoning" rather than arguments, and it saw all of these fundamental explanatory categories as grounded in contents or operations of the mind. Ans secondly, the lines of influence ran in the other direction as well. The higher cognitive faculties identified by early modern (and, indeed, by medieval and ancient) psychology were determined by logical and even grammatical considerations.

North American Kant Society Studies in Philosophy Volume 5.

Paperback, Very good condition, very little sign of wear.
