René Van Woudenberg, True Qualifiers for Qualified Truths
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This paper aims to throw light on what predicative expressions like "is a(n) truth," where an adjective is inserted on the line, mean. It aims to do so by unearthing a framework that specifies (i) various items that can be qualified by the adjectives, as well as (ii) various ways in which the adjectives perform their qualifying function. This framework forms the background against which, in the second half of this paper, the meaning of "is a relative truth" and "is an absolute truth" are studied. This paper, then, studies what alethic adjectives mean and how they work.

Daniel E. Flage, Descartes and the Real Distinction between Mind and Body
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In this paper I examine Descartes's argument for the real distinction between mind and body in Meditation Six. As a real distinction, it is a distinction between kinds of substances, that is, a distinction based upon essences. Descartes's argument is epistemic. It rests upon the contention that God can create anything we clearly and distinctly conceive as we conceive it. Given the epistemic basis for an ontological distinction, commentators find the argument puzzling.
