    On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Unlike Mill's other generally sensible and analytic books on logic, political theory and utilitarian ethics this is a passionate cry for the freedom of the individual from the tyranny of the majority, from prejudice, social convention and the bondage of correctness - what might today be thought of as the Daily Mail rule. Are beliefs dispositions which qualify as true or false depending on how helpful they prove in inquiry and in action? This book was one of the first to attempt such a new perception. Some of the best philosophers never wrote anything down—they just lived exemplary lives and provided an example which we can now learn from.

    A government, an army, a commercial system, a ship, a college, an athletic team, all exist on this condition, without which not only is nothing achieved, but nothing is even attempted. This is the view of C. Here knowledge and action are portrayed as two separate spheres with an absolute or transcendental truth above and beyond any sort of inquiry organisms used to cope with life. For one thing, it is unclear how one could "apply" a faculty of decision-making in a book, which is better seen as a recording of theoretical reason's activity.

    But this was a new descriptive metaphysics to use Philosophy of the Practical book own phrasenot windbag speculation, but drawing general conclusions from how things are. Quine, instrumental in bringing naturalized epistemology back into favor with his essay Epistemology Naturalized Quinealso criticized "traditional" epistemology and its "Cartesian dream" of absolute certainty. The whole delightful and iconoclastic atmosphere of immediately post-war Oxford philosophy is contained here. For one thing, it is unclear how one could "apply" a faculty of decision-making in a book, which is better seen as a recording of theoretical reason's activity. But it remains to be seen whether anything is really gained by setting up the analogy in the first place. A social organism of any sort whatever, large or small, is what it is because each member proceeds to his own duty with a trust that the other members will simultaneously do theirs.
