Justin Clark

An article by Assistant Professor of Philosophy Justin Clark was recently published in the journal Archive Für Geschichte der Philosophie. “Socrates, the ‘What is F-ness?’ Question, and the Priority of Definition” focuses on Socrates’ pursuit of rigorous definitions for ethical concepts.

Clark argues that Socrates employs the “What is F-ness?” question as a way of introducing two distinct types of investigation into F-ness — conceptual and causal. He says that “with this established, the relationship between Socrates’ principle and his method comes to light, and the tension is resolved.”
