    Philosophy and the Historical Perspective ed. by Marcel van Ackeren and Lee Klein
    Journal of the History of Philosophy 58 (4): 830-832. 2020.
    Philosophy and the Historical Perspective contains fourteen chapters, each of which is an attempt to enrich our conception of the relationship of analytical philosophy to history. Some chapters seek insight from the philosophical canon: Robert Pippin offers an insightful discussion of Hegel's historiographical methodology, and Brian Leiter presents aspects of Nietzsche's. Many of the chapters set research agendas that would deserve entire volumes. For instance, van Ackeren asks whether there are…Read more

    Logic from Kant to Russell (edited book)
    Routledge. 2018.
    The scope and method of logic as we know it today eminently reflect the ground-breaking developments of set theory and the logical foundations of mathematics at the turn of the 20th century. Unfortunately, little effort has been made to understand the idiosyncrasies of the philosophical context that led to these tremendous innovations in the 19thcentury beyond what is found in the works of mathematicians such as Frege, Hilbert, and Russell. This constitutes a monumental gap in our understanding …Read more
  • Between the publication of Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason in 1781 and Husserl’s Ideas in 1913, the nineteenth century was a pivotal period in the philosophy of mind, witnessing the emergence of the phenomenological and analytical traditions that continue to shape philosophical debate in fundamental ways. The nineteenth century also challenged many prevailing assumptions about the transparency of the mind, particularly in the ideas of Nietzsche and Freud, whilst at the same time witnessing the bi…Read more

    Ontology after Carnap (edited book)
    Oxford University Press UK. 2016.
    Analytic philosophy is once again in a methodological frame of mind. Nowhere is this more evident than in metaphysics, whose practitioners and historians are actively reflecting on the nature of ontological questions, the status of their answers, and the relevance of contributions both from other areas within philosophy and beyond. Such reflections are hardly new: the debate between Willard van Orman Quine and Rudolf Carnap about how to understand and resolve ontological questions is widely seen…Read more
  • Logik. Vorlesungen 1896 (review)
    Dialogue 42 (2): 394-396. 2003.
    Les Archives-Husserl de Louvain en Belgique furent fondées en 1939, un an après la mort de Husserl, à la suite du sauvetage spectaculaire des quelque 40000pages de manuscrits qu’avait laissées derrière lui le fondateur de la phénoménologie. Ces manuscrits de recherche, ébauches d’articles, fragments inédits, notes de cours,etc. sont rédigés dans la variante développée par Husserl d’un code sténographique, le Gabelsberger, frappé d’obsolescence après la Première Guerre mondiale, et le travail d’é…Read more

    Preuves par excellence
    Philosophiques 30 (1): 219-234. 2003.
    Bolzano fut le premier philosophe à établir une distinction explicite entre les procédés déductifs qui nous permettent de parvenir à la certitude d’une vérité et ceux qui fournissent son fondement objectif. La conception que Bolzano se fait du rapport entre ce que nous appelons ici, d’une part, « conséquence subjective », à savoir la relation de raison à conséquence épistémique et, d’autre part, la « conséquence objective », c’est-à-dire la fondation , suggère toutefois que Bolzano défendait une…Read more

Each chapter contributes to a broader engagement with a wider range of figures, topics and disciplines outside of philosophy than has been traditionally associated with the history of analytical philosophy. The book acquaints readers with new aspects of analytical philosophy’s revolutionary p…Read more

    Is Logic Formal? Bolzano, Kant and the Kantian Logicians
    Grazer Philosophische Studien 85 (1): 11-32. 2012.
    In the wake of Kant, logicians seemed to have adhered to the idea that what is distinctive of logic is its “formality”. In the paper, I discuss the distinction Kant draws between formality and generality of logic and argue that he ultimately conflates the two notions. I argue further that Kant's views on the formality of logic rest on a series of non trivial assumptions concerning the nature of cognition. I document the way in which these assumptions were received in his successors. In the secon…Read more

  • Husserl et la philosophie analytique (review)
    Dialogue 39 (2): 416-418. 2000.
    Dans La crise des sciences européennes Husserl entreprenait de démontrer les causes de l’échec de ce qu’il appelle d’une manière générale «l’objectivisme physicaliste» de manière à établir les avantages de la méthode phénoménologique. L’expédient qu’il choisissait à cet effet consistait en une «méditation historique et critique». Pour le profane, le produit est plus ou moins convaincant: les réflexions de Husserl demeurent pour la plupart superficielles et n’ont d’historiques à vrai dire que le …Read more

    This paper is aimed at understanding one central aspect of Bolzano's views on deductive knowledge: what it means for a proposition and for a term to be known a priori. I argue that, for Bolzano, a priori knowledge is knowledge by virtue of meaning and that Bolzano has substantial views about meaning and what it is to know the latter. In particular, Bolzano believes that meaning is determined by implicit definition, i.e. the fundamental propositions in a deductive system. I go into some detail in…Read more
  • La philosophie dite analytique constitue l’une des traditions philosophiques les plus importantes du vingtième siècle. Ce qui la caractérise, par contraste avec d’autres courants comme l’existentialisme ou la phénoménologie, est sa préoccupation pour « l’analyse » conceptuelle ou logique. Qu’est-ce que l’analyse et en quoi informe-t-elle des notions philosophiques fondamentales et en particulier la notion d’analyticité? En quoi les conceptions de l’analyse et de l’analyticité évoluent-elles de K…Read more
