1. 2575 Hume as a Soft Determinist: The Reconciliation of Freewill and Determinism.

This paper is an analysis of the question of freewill and determinism as interpreted from the writings of David Hume. Specifically, this paper will present an overview and analysis of Hume's argument from "Of Liberty and Necessity", and it will be demonstrated that Hume is a 'soft determinist'. It will be argued that because 'necessity' (determinism) is a 'belief' that is conditioned in humans, and because certain patterns of behavior cross-culturally can be observed and understood as similar, that he is therefore a determinist to some extent. 7 pgs. 15 f/c. 1b.

2. 2644 Leibniz: Reconciling Freedom with Determinism.

This paper discusses Leibniz's views regarding the compatibility of free will and determinism. Leibniz's explanations regarding the will of God are explores, as well as studying the thoughts of Hume, Augustine, and Aquinas. Due to this, this paper concludes that predestination and free will can, in fact, be very much mutually inclusive. As Leibniz profoundly showed, since man has free will, he is responsible for what he does. God's foreknowledge, therefore, does not, and cannot, impose necessity. 6 pgs. 5 f/c. 5b.

3. 2681 Russell's Epistemology and Foundationalism.

The following questions are addressed in this paper: first, what is the status of the objects of truths, and that is, where does the notion of 'equality' in mathematics come from, if, that is, there is nothing in our sense data that resembles perfect equality (e.g. the principle of indiscernibility)? Secondly, how is one to define the relationship between these? Further aspects to consider, are problems related to 'universals', that status, for example of a 'proper name', or to use an example from Hume: where is the 'forest' qua 'forest' in the sense that all our senses give us are particulars, this rock, that tree, this bird, etc.? Such is the context of the four theses' in question, and these questions or problems will be born in mind throughout the duration of this paper, and in turn, fine-tuned within the context of the thesis' in question. 5 pgs. 5 f/c. 1b.

4. 2682 Russell & The Inductive Principle.

The following is an essay and analysis on the problem of inferences. Specifically, this paper will analyze what Russell argues concerning inductive reasoning in his work titled The Problems of Philosophy. The focus of this analysis will be toward the problem of induction in terms of the problems of 'knowledge' according to Russell. It will be argued that with respect to the problem of knowledge, Russell's position can generally be regarded as a 'skeptic', and that there is unquestionably a principle of uncertainty involved with inductive reasoning. 4.5 pgs. 0 f/c. 1b.

5. 3850 Spinoza's Monism and the Illusion of Selfhood.

The discussion of Spinoza's monism and its impact upon our understanding of the autonomous self necessitates - prior to addressing the issue itself - a choice as to whether or not to accept the assumptions upon which is based the "truth of Spinoza's monism". In this context, this paper will take a dualistic approach to this question. First, Spinoza's assumptions and his monistic theory will be examined to demonstrate some of their flaws, and therefore their irrelevance to the issue of the autonomous self. The second approach requires the provisional acceptance of Spinoza's assumptions and his propositions as to the monism of God. It will be argued that, although Spinoza's argument allows a degree of limited autonomy for the self as a causal agent, this freedom is based upon our finite ignorance of the causal relationship between ourselves as finite beings and God as an infinite entity. 7 pgs. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
