    Despite Feser's estimation of it as an "outdated scientific framework", even Aristotle's physics has had important defenders, including Carlo Rovelli's astonishing article "Aristotle's Physics -- A Physicist's Look". This new book "builds on the main ideas and arguments developed and defended there", and so the reader is advised that if some assumptions seem insufficiently defended "he will find the full-dress defense in the earlier book" p. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press. Brighton, England: Harvester Press. Kant, however, had perceived an important gap in his system and had begun rethinking its foundations.

    Bovens eds. It turns out that natural selection is teleological pp. Some of Kant's writings in the early s attracted the favorable notice of respected philosophers such as J. You've purchased this product See it in your library I want this! There is a further problem.

    Consequently, while it is fairly easy to transition from the study of Aristotelian philosophy of nature to that of Aristotelian-Thomistic metaphysics and vice versa, there is nothing in contemporary physics to orient one to the study of Aristotelian philosophy of nature and nothing in Aristotelian philosophy of nature to orient one to the study of contemporary physics. But Feser himself does not explain his enterprise this way. Google Scholar Kerferd, G. Modern philosophy restricts our understanding of necessity to the political dreams and aspirations of Enlightenment intellectuals. Nor does Feser mention the eminent biologist Ernst Mayr's admission, "I myself misinterpreted Aristotle before I became acquainted with the contemporary literature". Immanuel Kant was a great philosopher and one of the founders of the modern system of philosophy.

While the previous book is a systematic introduction to Feser's neo-Thomistic metaphysics, the current book is an application of this metaphysics to issues connected with physics, biology, and cognitive science.

Google Scholar Palter, R. Highest on the scale is prime matter, which has the potential to become anything. Instead, the book is largely polemical, and Feser Metaphysical foundations of natural science book have spent Metaphysical foundations of natural science book pages explaining his own views and claims.

Feser also rebuts the classic distinction between primary and secondary qualities. But it is utterly unknown to most contemporary physicists and inessential to dealing with the issues they are typically concerned with. Jansen, Ludger Kant saw the development of reason as a collective possession of the human species, a product of nature working through human history.

Indeed, since we know that they do have application to the conscious, thinking subject, and that that subject is part of the physical world, we have reason to expect that the concepts do have application also to the wider physical world. Feser argues not only that Aristotelian natural philosophy is fully compatible with evolutionary theory, but that evolutionary theory actually presupposes Aristotelian metaphysical concepts, such as species essentialism.

When he contrasts Platonic teleological realism with both Aristotelian teleological realism and scholastic teleological realism p. Ladyman, James The early reviews were hostile and uncomprehending, and Kant's attempt to make his theories more accessible in his Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics was largely unsuccessful.

Motte, revised F. Herder, whose writings on anthropology and history challenged his Enlightenment convictions, Kant turned his attention to issues in the philosophy of morality and history, writing several short essays on the philosophy of history and sketching his ethical theory in the Foundations of the Metaphysics of Morals Given the lack of references to primary and secondary sources for Aristotle's views, the position defended in Aristotle's Revenge is better described, as Feser frequently does, as neo-Aristotelian or, more accurately, Aristotelian-Thomistic philosophy.

Immanuel Kant was a great philosopher and one of the founders of the modern system of philosophy. I am also indebted to helpful comments from Manley Thompson and Roberto Torretti on previous drafts.
