The plain truth Descartes, Huet, and skepticism by Thomas M Lennon( file )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 923 libraries worldwide
Offers a study of Pierre-Daniel Huet's "Censura philosophiae cartesiana" (1689) and the controversy surrounding it, and shows that there are good answers to the perennial standard criticisms of Descartes' philosophy: the method of doubt, the cogito, and proofs of God's existence
Reading Bayle by Thomas M Lennon( Computer File )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 900 libraries worldwide
Pierre Bayle (1647-1706) is a key intellectual figure of the period, and his Historical and Critical Dictionary is the philosophy best seller of all time. This work is a critical but sympathetic treatment of a neglected thinker of interest in the fields of the history of modern philosophy, the history of ideas, and 17th century French culture
The battle of the gods and giants : the legacies of Descartes and Gassendi, 1655-1715 by Thomas M Lennon( Book )
8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 431 libraries worldwide
By the mid-1600s, the commonsense, manifest picture of the world associated with Aristotle had been undermined by skeptical arguments on the one hand and by the rise of the New Science on the other. What would be the scientific image to succeed the Aristotelian model? Thomas Lennon argues here that the contest between the supporters of Descartes and the supporters of Gassendi to decide this issue was the most important philosophical debate of the latter half of the seventeenth century. Descartes and Gassendi inspired their followers with radically opposed perspectives on space, the objects in it, and how these objects are known. Lennon maintains that differing concepts on these matters implied significant moral and political differences: the Descartes/Gassendi conflict was typical of Plato's perennial battle of the gods (friends of forms) and giants (materialists), and the crux of that enduring philosophical struggle is the exercise of moral and political authority. Lennon demonstrates, in addition, that John Locke should be read as having taken up Gassendi's cause against Descartes. In Lennon's reinterpretation of the history of philosophy between the death dates of Gassendi and Malebranche, Locke's acknowledged opposition to Descartes on some issues is applied to the most important questions of Locke exegesis
The achilles of rationalist psychology by Thomas M Lennon( file )
13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 394 libraries worldwide
"How is it that the mind perceives the words of a verse as a verse and not just as a string of words? One answer to this question is that to do so the mind itself must already be unified as a simple thing without parts (and perhaps must therefore be immortal). Kant called this argument the Achilles, perhaps because of its apparent invincibility, and perhaps also because it has a fatal weak spot, or perhaps because it is the champion argument of rationalism. The argument and the problem it addresses have a long history, from the ancient world right up to the present." "The Achilles of Rationalist Psychology consists of newly written papers addressing each of the main contributors to the discussion of the Achilles. Despite the historical importance and intrinsic interest of the argument, very little has been written about it. This volume should therefore be of use to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers across the domains of philosophy, history, and cognitive science."--Jacket

Designers' guide to EN 1991-1-2, EN1992-1-2, EN 1993-1-2 and EN 1994-1-2 (Eurocode) by D Moore( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
The nature of the loading must first be understood before applying the structural engineering principles set out in the Eurocodes. For this reason this book is meant as a guide to four separate documents, EN1991 Part 1.2, EN1992 Part 1.2, EN1993 Part 1.2 and EN1994 Part 1.2 with reference where appropriate to the Eurocode covering the basis of design, EC06. The fire design procedures for reinforced and prestressed concrete structures are contained in the relevant parts of the code, BS81104,5. However, the structural Eurocodes consider steel, composite and concrete construction in isolation and each material therefore has its own corresponding fire part. In this case, a clause-by-clause examination of the fire parts of the material codes would not be sufficient to allow designers to use these documents. The guide takes the form of an introduction to the procedures required to achieve design solutions for a typical range of structural elements and assemblies. Worked examples are included along with appropriate text to illustrate the use of the Eurocodes for specific design scenarios. As a way of setting the scene for those unfamiliar with the basic principles of structural fire engineering design the next section provides an overview of the regulatory framework and a description of the commonly used methods for ensuring compliance with the regulations
Designers' guide to EN 1991-1-2, 1992-1-2, 1993-1-2 and 1994-1-2 : handbook for the fire design of steel, composite and concrete structures to the eurocodes ( Book )

Achilles of Rationalist Psychology, The. Studies in the History of Philosophy of Mind, Volume 7 ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
In his Second Paralogism of the Critique of Pure Reason, Kant described what he called the ???Achilles of all dialectical inferences in the pure doctrine of the soul???. This argument, which he took to be powerful yet fatally flawed, purports to establish the simplicity of the human mind, or soul, on the basis of the unity of consciousness. In Kant??'s illustration, the unity had by our perception of a verse cannot be accounted for if the words of the verse are distributed among parts thought to compose the mind. The argument, or at least the unity of consciousness that underpins it, has a history extending from Plato to the present. Moreover, many philosophers have extended the argument, some of them using to argue such views as immortality. It is the aim of this volume to treat the major figures who have advanced the argument, or who have held views importantly bearing on it. Original essays by scholars with expertise on the relevant authors treat Plato, Aristotle, the Neoplatonists, the medievals, Descartes, Locke, Cudworth, Bayle, Clarke, Spinoza, Leibniz. Hume, Mendelsohn, Kant, Lotze, James, as well as those working in contemporary cognitive science on what is called the binding problem of how the human brain can unify the elements of experience into a single representation
