It would be interesting to explore Proust’s great novel from the perspective of seeing how stable synthetic complexes are formed and modified  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) I argue against literal interpretation of religious doctrines. Religions make progress when they emancipate themselves from literalism, and take their doctrinal statements to be metaphors or allegories  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) Because the problems are objective features of the human situation - social animals without the capacities for making social life come easily - ethics is objectively constrained.

Universities are beginning to see science as a means of attracting funds  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) I didn’t know that Mahler would come to play so large a role, nor that music and literature and philosophy can interinanimate one another in the way I’ve come to think they do in this case  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) So my methodological approach is to draw on many different features in highlighting different facets of the novella (and the opera and the film)  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) There are many critics whose work I greatly admire. Even though I diverge from T.J. Reed in several important ways, I’ve learned greatly from his writings on Mann  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) Most influential of all is the philosopher Stanley Cavell, and a younger generation of philosophers who have attempted to follow his pioneering work in thinking about literature philosophically  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) I don’t think readers of Mann have overlooked the fact that he was a great ironist, but they have tended to see the irony in particular parts of the novella, and to miss it in others  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) The more you read the novella, the more you should wonder, I think, which judgments are to be taken as bedrock  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) Was Mann himself fully aware of all the facets of his irony?

Yet the surviving diaries tell us of recurrent sexual problems - and of Katia Mann’s extremely sympathetic response to the  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) Experiments work when, and only when, they call into action cognitive capacities that might reliably deliver the conclusions drawn  (Philip Kitcher Quotes) For a pragmatist like me, the important issues concern the words we might deploy to achieve our purposes, rather than the language we actually use  (Philip Kitcher Quotes)
