Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 977. Solomon Diamond replies to Joseph F. Rychlak's comments (see record 2006-06388-163) on Mary Henle and Diamond's review (see record 2006-06394-013) of the first ll volumes of the 28-volume collection Significant Contributions to the History of Psychology. Daniel N. Robinson was the series editor of the collection. Diamond says the assumes that they are not discussing the relative merits of determinism and teleology, but only whether the intent, plan, and act of murder constitute a valid example of Aristotelian final cause. The statement in the review that the final cause of death “must be found in the nature of life” simply means that any teleologist must view death as necessary for continuing life, on earth or hereafter.
