The order and behavior of the premodifier (an adjective, or different editing notice that looks ahead of a noun) has lengthy been a puzzle to syntacticians and semanticists. Why do we say 'the genuine pink ball', yet now not 'the crimson genuine ball'?

Example text

All the characteristics of the strategy I rehearsed previously—the two strategic movements and the self-destructive end—find a clearer expression in the Tractatus than in the Ethics because, in trying to establish the perspective of radical immanence at the level of logic and by means of logic, Wittgenstein was forced to go “below” theories and deductive reasoning in general to see what makes them possible. By the same token, he was forced to “discover” that the strategy in question was the only strategy he could possibly deploy.

This is all the more important because philosophical method constituted a major concern for most of the philosophers participating in the new philosophy during both Spinoza’s and Wittgenstein’s periods. Method With respect to the issues important here, Descartes opened the new era of philosophy by establishing four major points and clarifying the relations among them. First, his work brings to the forefront the unlimited power of individual human reasoning. This is a power capable of rediscovering the medieval proofs for the existence of God but starting this time from scratch, that is, from hyperbolic doubt.

11 The fundamentals of the Ethics involve the way Spinoza characterizes the specific emotions in the later parts of his treatise, their role in individuals’ lives, and his proposals for overcoming their nefarious effects. I address these matters only to the extent that they help clarify how he cashes out the perspective of radical immanence. More accurately, the texts to be compared are basically limited to an informal Tractatus and the first two parts of the Ethics, those in which the perspective of radical immanence is introduced and its main ingredients are drawn out.
