David Lewis is a natural target for those who believe that findings in quantum physics threaten the tenability of traditional metaphysical reductionism. Such philosophers point to allegedly holistic entities they take both to be the subjects of some claims of quantum mechanics and to be incompatible with Lewisian metaphysics.

Death by Philosophy, 10, on the theme of the philosopher and tyrant. On the interpretation of Empedocles. Plato's Phaedrus interweaves all three men, directly citing Stesichorus and Tisias, and presenting several Empedoclean themes. The book uncovers alternate ways of understanding human behavior and explores how these rhetorical practices both reflected and influenced their cultures. The essays address issues of historiography and raise questions about the application of Western rhetorical concepts to these very different ancient cultures.

Confronting the fact that Empedocles twice uses the name of Hephaestus when referring to the element of fire, K. focuses on the role of this fire divinity in Sicilian cult and myth, and especially his association with Mount Etna. He concludes that Hades manifests fire in its destructive aspect, whereas Hephaestus as craftsman and creative force (in conjunction with Aphrodite) displays the creative aspect of fire (75). 10, 'Plato and Orpheus', breathes new life into the interpretation of Albrecht Dieterich's Nekyia (1893) that the Platonic myths are indebted to Orphic literature.

Excerpt: ... THE SECOND PERIOD The beginning of the dissolution of the Sphere is described with a strong touch of poetic imagination. "All the members of the god trembled."1 Our accounts of the succeeding cosmic process are most inadequate. First air was separated off, then fire, each containing apparently some admixture of the other.2 From some of the air was formed, by the action of fire, a crystal vault which encircles the entire heavens.3 Its shape is described by Aetius, but not with perfect clearness. It was perhaps a flattened sphaeroid, as Zeller suggests.4 Beneath this vault two hollow hemispheres were formed, one of fire, one of air, for in this first separation fire was borne upward, air down beneath the earth.5 The weight of fire causes the revolution of the heavens. The earth remains in the center,6 held there by this revolution7 and from it the sea is pressed out.1 The sea seems at first.to have surrounded the earth in a layer, and later to have been collected into its present form. Most writers have supposed that the separation of the great masses of the elements as they appear in our world, was effected by a whirling motion, in accordance with the traditions of the Ionians.2 But the revolution of the heavens is expressly said to begin after the separation was partly effected.3 The view in question seems to be necessitated, as already noted, by the supposition that the present world is the world of Love. The separation is, however, exactly what we should expect as the result of the operation of Strife.4 The elements seem to have "distributed themselves" capriciously, or by weight.5 force of the fire streaming from this reflecting surface.1 Therefore, even though the sun be a reflection, it is also a mass of fire.2 1 Fr. 31. 2 Plut, Strom., 10 (Dox., 582); Phil...
