Nigel Tubbs takes the history of Western philosophy to be the
search for first principles. Arguing that neo-Platonic logic,
fundamentally misunderstanding the negative, posited philosophical
thought as error. Kant and Hegel later re-educated the modern mind
about negation in logic, transforming the way modern philosophy
contests first principles.
NIGEL TUBBS teaches at the University of Winchester, England,UK. He is currently setting up a programme of studies in Modern Liberal Arts. His publications include Philosophy's Higher Education (2004), Philosophy of the Teacher (2005), and Education in Hegel (2008).
