This is so great, Eric! As I’ll talk about at the Dutch early modern seminar, I think Locke’s theory of enthusiasm as a sort of madness, and of the passion of love as a sort of enthusiasm, amount to an important precursor to this strain of skepticism about abstract reasoning. Excited to talk to you about it there.

Eric Schliesser

Thank you. I find the history of enthusiasm within early modern philosophy very fascinating; I look forward to your paper!

Paul D. Van Pelt

Yes, nice work! I too await your completed work. Hypothetical question, probably already addressed somewhere: can/should/would emotionless circuitry ever be wired to simulate emotion(s)? Or, if it can't know what delirium is, how can it know delirium?
