Mencius is critical of Yang Zhu, a figure often treated as a proto-Daoist who, thought he seems to have no metatheory of Dao, is reputed to espouse a version of primitivism (which some call Yangism). However, if we take ordinary moral discourse and argument seriously, then since such discourse and argument presuppose that there are right answers to moral questions whose correctness outstrips any actual or even ideal set of attitudes or agreements, the constructivist view cannot be correct.

Several pieces of evidence pointed in this direction, notably (i) Angus Macintyre’s observation in 1971 that an uncountably categorical field must be algebraically closed, and (ii) observations by Zilber himself and Greg Cherlin that uncountably categorical groups behave remarkably like algebraic groups over an algebraically closed field. The philosophical and theological system of Valenti- nus bears some similarities to Platonism, though it has also been suggested, with much less plausibility, that his system was founded upon principles drawn from the Ophites, a Gnostic sect particularly devoted to the role of the serpent as metaphor and, in some cases, object of worship.

The second (Do so as well) represents the emotive meaning and indicates that exposure to utter- ances like X is good tends to bring about approval for X. Inductive arguments, as here conceived, do not constitute mathematical or logical proofs; by definition induction is not a species of deduction. types of inductive arguments In addition to the types of arguments already mentioned, the following are most frequently discussed: (1) Elaborated induction (as it might be called) con- sists of more or less sophisticated variations of induction by simple enumeration, typically including supplementary information concerning the mode of selection of the individuals named in the premises and perhaps including reference to negative instances. (2) Proportional induction is inference from the fre- quency of occurrence of some character in a sam- ple to the frequency of occurrence of the same character in the parent population—that is, from “m 1 /n 1 A’s selected by a stated procedure P are B” to “m 2 /n 2 A’s are B.” Here the ratio stated in the conclusion may be other than the one stated in the premise; it is often advantageous to locate the final ratio within a certain designated interval. (3) Proportional eduction is argument from sample to sample.

Bi bl i o g r aphy WORKS BY LEV SHESTOV Sobranie sochinenii. 6 vols. It is extremely difficult for Plotinus to give a consistent account of what constitutes man’s true self.

But to properly understand, more than linguistic competence is required. The logical or apophantic domain first emerges in a critical turn occa- sioned by a concern with the truth or falsity of judg- ments. And this requires some analogical reasoning. These components are interconnected, for until we understand the nature of the mind’s preconceptions, we do not know in what direction we need to lead its thinking.
