Logic does not describe how we actually think, but only how we should. Yet by thus sundering the logical from the psychological, Frege was unable to explain certain fundamental logical truths, most notably the psychological version of the law of non-contradiction-that one cannot think a thought and its negation simultaneously.

Opposing a long-standing orthodoxy of the Western philosophical tradition running from ancient Greek thought until the late nineteenth century, Frege argued that psychological laws of thought—those that explicate how we in fact think—must be distinguished from logical laws of thought—those that formulate and impose rational requirements on thinking. Logic does not describe how we actually think, but only how we should. Yet by thus sundering the logical from the psychological, Frege was unable to explain certain fundamental logical truths, most notably the psychological version of the law of non-contradiction—that one cannot think a thought and its negation simultaneously. In closing the gap that Frege opened, Kimhi shows that the two principles of non-contradiction—the ontological principle and the psychological principle—are in fact aspects of the very same capacity, differently manifested in thinking and being. As his argument progresses, Kimhi draws on the insights of historical figures such as Aristotle, Kant, and Wittgenstein to develop highly original accounts of topics that are of central importance to logic and philosophy more generally. Self-consciousness, language, and logic are revealed to be but different sides of the same reality. While astronomer Vera Rubin made significant contributions to our understanding of dark matter and championed the advancement of women in science, she is not that well known outside of the scientific community.

Sad face graffiti on the wall in Breckinridge. Kimhi, an associate professor in the John U. Nef Committee on Social Thought and the College, is famous in modern philosophical circles for his Thinking and Being: A Two Way Capacity —a book forthcoming from Harvard University Press but long in circulation in the form of drafts and lecture notes passed among colleagues and former students. His research connects logic and the philosophy of language to questions in metaphysics and psychoanalysis. When I arrive at the fifth-floor classroom in Foster Hall on a Tuesday in April, I find a diverse group of about 15 undergraduates, a few missing among 19 enrolled. This is a comparative literature class, a philosophy class, and a Committee on Social Thought class, and I recognize fellow English majors besides.

A negative judgment " S is not p " says what is not the case, but since what is not the case is nothing and does not exist, a negative judgment says nothing and is not a judgment at all. Wittgenstein called this state of affairs "the mystery of negation. No less fastidious a logician than Rudolf Carnap sneered at philosophers who take such trifles seriously. Parmenides, the first of many who did, drew the conclusion that one simply cannot say or think what is not, admonishing followers: "Say and think only this, being is. The price they usually pay for their explanation is metaphysical idealism. The truth of thinking including thinking what is not must depend on nothing but thinking itself, and the favorite way of explaining that proposition is to identify being with thought. If I think it, truly think it, then it is.

This particular formulation of the law of non-contradiction appears to specify a limit on what is possible to believe or to think. There are three traditional ways to understand the necessity expressed by this formulation of the law: 1 the law is a law of nature, and thus expresses a natural or empirical necessity, 2 the law is an instance of a logical truth, and thus expresses a logical necessity, 3 the law is a normative law of thoughts-- a demand to which all intellectual activities must conform. I shall discuss the dual concepts of affirmation and denial and some of their history. There is, I shall try show, a different way different from 1 2 and 3 associated with Spinoza to see the law. Spinoza's discussion of affirmation will allow us to see that "this law is not a law but life", and thus "life as it is lived in the village at the foot of the hill on which the Castle is built.

Could there be a logical alien—a being whose ways of talking, inferring, and contradicting exhibit an entirely different logical shape than ours, yet who nonetheless is thinking? Could someone, contrary to the most basic rules of logic, think that two contradictory statements are both true at the same time?

Мимо. Он резко свернул влево и запетлял по дороге в надежде сбить преследователя и выиграть время. Все было бесполезно. До поворота оставалось еще триста метров, а такси от него отделяло всего несколько машин.

Терпение Стратмора иссякло. Он взорвался: - Сьюзан, выслушай. Я вызвал тебя сюда, потому что мне нужен союзник, а не следователь. Сегодня у меня было ужасное утро. Вчера вечером я скачал файл Танкадо и провел у принтера несколько часов, ожидая, когда ТРАНСТЕКСТ его расколет. На рассвете я усмирил свою гордыню и позвонил директору - и, уверяю тебя, это был бы тот еще разговорчик.

Хейл решил выйти подышать воздухом, за что она была ему безмерно благодарна. Однако одиночество не принесло ей успокоения. В голове у Сьюзан беспрестанно крутилась мысль о контактах Танкадо с Хейлом.

 Прости меня, - умолял. Сьюзан пыталась отстраниться, но он не отпускал. ТРАНСТЕКСТ задрожал, как ракета перед стартом.

 Диагностика, черт меня дери! - бормотал Чатрукьян, направляясь в свою лабораторию.

Irad Kimhi's Thinking and Being marks a radical break with Frege's legacy in analytic philosophy, exposing the flaws of his approach and outlining a novel.

Frege argued that psychological laws of thought -- which explicate how we in fact think -- must be distinguished from logical laws of thought.
