    The Ethics of Geometry: A Genealogy of Modernity.David Rapport Lachterman - 1989 - Routledge.
    The Ethics of Geometry is a study of the relationship between philosophy and mathematics. Essential differences in the ethos of mathematics, for example, the customary ways of undertaking and understanding mathematical procedures and their objects, provide insight into the fundamental issues in the quarrel of moderns with ancients. Two signal features of the modern ethos are the priority of problem-solving over theorem-proving, and the claim that constructability by human minds or instruments establishes the existence of relevant entities. These figures are (...)

    The Ontology of Production in Marx: The Paradox of Labor and the Enigma of Praxis.David R. Lachterman - 1996 - Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal 19 (1):3-23.
    Praxis is the identifying signature of the most prevalent contemporary versions of the reception and interpretation of Marx and of the movements of thought inspired or provoked by him. This view seems to accord well with the early “Theses on Feuerbach” and is frequently mobilized in support of the further claim that the “mature” or “scientific” Marx, the Marx of Das Kapital, above all had left behind his former preoccupations with philosophy in anything like a traditional sense, in order to (...)

    What Reason Demands.David R. Lachterman - 1990 - Review of Metaphysics 44 (2):403-406.
    The two most conspicuous features of the rather hectic activity in contemporary moral philosophy seem to be these: First, while eleventh-hour attempts are still being made to salvage foundationalism in some Kantian sense, center stage is held by the debate between partisans of a pallid, if ironic, liberal solidarity and defenders of the supposedly vivid authority, or authoritarianism, of shared traditions and life-practices. And yet, second, jettisoning rational foundations has not meant abandoning all sense of the reasonableness of the "moral" (...)

  8. Mathematics, Method and Metaphysics: Essays Towards a Genealogy of Modern Thought.David R. Lachterman - 1984 - Dissertation, The Pennsylvania State University
    The generative and governing "idea" of radical modernity is spawned by the technique of mathematical construction deployed and interpreted by the major early-modern thinkers and their legatees. ;Chapter I is a survey of this legacy as it appears in Vico, Kant, Fichte, Marx and Nietzsche and in the post-Nietzschean inheritance of contemporary philosophy, hyperbolic in the case of Derrida et al., elliptical, in the case of Carnap and Goodman. ;In Chapter II I try to show how the pre-modern mathematical tradition, (...)

    Aristote Et la Question du Monde. Essai Sur le Contexte Cosmologique Et Anthropologique de L'Ontologie.David R. Lachterman - 1989 - Review of Metaphysics 43 (2):387-390.
    This is the most noteworthy and, potentially, most fructifying Aristotelian study in recent decades. Unlike many other vues d'ensemble, it is neither a reconstruction of Aristotle's putative "development," nor an analytical rehabilitation of sedimented "doctrines"; rather, Brague's work is an engagement with the original evidence generating and sustaining Aristotle's discourses on the human, the worldly, and the divine. This engagement is carried through in a special register: Aristote et la question du monde is a surrogate for the book on Aristotle (...)

    Torah and Logos.David R. Lachterman - 1994 - Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal 17 (1-2):3-27.
    Every speech has a long ancestry, even if it was composed for a novel occasion. It may help to clarify my purposes in today’s speech if I say a few words about its genealogy and its genesis. Its lone ancestor was my undergraduate teacher, Simon Kaplan, a learned and a pious man. I recall vividly the day he admonished me in a thick Russian accent which I can’t mimic, “Mr. Lachterman, you spend all your time with the Greeks and none (...)

    The Radical Spinoza.David R. Lachterman - 1982 - Review of Metaphysics 36 (2):476-479.
    The final publication of the late Paul Wienpahl is an exceedingly curious and, perhaps, deliberately controversial book, giving fullest expression to the promise made in some of his earlier studies, viz., to bring about a rapprochement between Spinoza and Eastern, especially Zen Buddhistic, thought. He pursued this aspiration along two fronts, the first involving historical analysis and cross-cultural comparison, the second consisting of a new translation of all the definitions, axioms and propositions of the Ethics, together with a facing Latin (...)

    Moses Maimonides and His Time.David R. Lachterman - 1990 - Review of Metaphysics 44 (1):157-160.
    A recent bibliography of Maimonidean studies in the major scholarly languages lists over 300 items from 1950 to 1986. Almost all of the entries antedate the numerous collective publications honoring the 850th anniversary of Maimonides' birth held in 1985. The present volume is an impressive specimen of this latter genre, being a collection of papers presented at the Catholic University of America, plus four papers commissioned by the editor.
