Integrating Chemistry, Electricity and Magnetism into Dynamical Natural Philosophy: J. F. Fries’s Extension of Kant’s Metaphysical Foundations  [PDF]
Erdmann G?rg
Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2014.31006
Abstract: Kant’s Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science has an almost exclusive focus on Newton’s Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica. Other research fields like electrostatics, magnetism, chemistry or biology are hardly dealt with. A successor of Kant, the philosopher, natural scientist and mathematician Jakob Friedrich Fries (1773-1843), accommodates Kant’s major thoughts on a metaphysical foundation but aims at assisting natural science of his time by employing a heuristic interpretation of Kant’s fundamental forces. In my paper, I will trace Fries’s application of his heurist maxims on the development of other evolving fields of research. This will provide concrete examples on how Fries thought philosophy to support science. For that reason, I will highlight the different status that Kant and Fries concede non-mechanic research areas. To restrict the analysis, I will focus on the actual incorporation of chemical dissolution, Coulomb’s law and magnetism into Kantian Dynamics as a concrete example of Fries’s methodology.

Analogia humeana entre a a o moral e o movimento mecanico: uma interpreta o para a rela o entre as paix es e a raz o
Andreh Sabino Ribeiro
Princípios : Revista de Filosofia , 2011,
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to show the analogy that David Hume (1711 - 1776) makes between moral action and the mechanical movement as a clear indication of his understanding of the relationship between reason (direction) and passions (force) in human conduct. Stretching from Hume's moral epistemology to his social theory, the notion that carries this analogy would serve to endorse the view that the Scottish philosopher was trying to become a sort of "Newton of the moral sciences." This meant thinking about moral philosophy within the limits of nature and allowing an independent research, especially in relation to the religious tradition. Hume′s philosophy could be also a performative image of the movement, while an inseparable composition made of the impulse of the contents of sentimental trend, according to Shaftesbury and Hutcheson, and the direction of the empirical methods come from Francis Bacon and Isaac Newton.

Natural Law as Subjective Dimension & Representative Form  [PDF]
Yifeng Wen
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2018.81001
Abstract: The aim of science is to discover natural law, or to explain the consistency of things that we know through our senses. Whereas the essence of sense and natural law themselves still remain many problems waited to explore clearly even in today. By logic analysis and review some theories, especially phenomenology, this paper reaches conclusion that natural law in essence is subject’s dimension and subjective logic form which can spread things out, objectively define things and represent them in mind. The scientific model is a logical metaphor that blends the concepts of common experience with priori form.
A extens?o da impostura
Aleksandrowicz, Ana Maria C.;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2000000400002
Abstract: this paper comments on sokal and bricmont's stance towards interdisciplinarity approaches between the human and natural sciences, as stated in their controversial book impostures intellectuelles (fashionable nonsense) (1999). it happens that interdisciplinarity is a subject of major importance to "new paradigms" in public health. first, the paper identifies different types of interaction between these "two cultures", such as transdisciplinary trends and the "science wars", and emphasizes their unproductive aspects. second, it proposes a revaluation of pragmatism as a suitable way of including philosophical considerations in interdisciplinary public health research, exemplified by a correlation between the ideas of henri atlan (1991) and notions of risk theory (or model).
Evolvement of the Relation between Mathematics, Science and Natural Philosophy

Advances in Philosophy (ACPP) , 2013, DOI: 10.12677/ACPP.2013.23005
Abstract: 本文探讨了历史上数学与自然哲学、交叉科学、社会科学的关系,并结合历史和现代科学的发展,阐述了数学与自然哲学之间的主导与被主导关系的演变。
In the present paper, the relation between the mathematics and natural philosophy, overlapping science and social science is firstly illustrated, and then discusses the evolvement of the relation which changes from dominant to being dominated between mathematics and natural philosophy, combining with the history and the development of modern science.
Isaac Newton: ciencia y religión en la unidad de su pensamiento
Estudios de Filosofía , 2008,
Abstract: abstract: one of the main reasons for the success of newton?s natural philosophy was the role that it played in the development of a valuable natural theology. besides, newton himself published the theological implications of his own natural philosophy. although in the frst edition of the principia there is no sign of god, for the second edition (1713) newton introduced a "general scholium" in which he explicitly discussed the relation between god and his creation. newton`s obsession with the interpretation of scriptures was for some time disregarded as awkward. nonetheless, its importance for adequately understanding newton is now accepted and it stimulates a lot of new activity on behalf of the specialists. this paper enables one to see at present the nucleus of the question posed by richard h. popkin: "why one of the leading anti-trinitarian theologians committed himself to writing works on natural philosophy, such as the principia mathematica?"
