Rachel Trickett - The Difficulties of Defining and Categorizing in the Augustan Period | JSTOR: New Literary History, Vol. 1, No. 2 (Winter, 1970), pp. 163-179
Attacks analysis that, in its own terms and originally is insightful, when elevated to a commonplace that locks works, authors or periods into rigid or inappropriate categories -- examples Eliot re metaphysical poets, Lovejoy Great Chain of Being -- slams Mack for trying to use Great Chain of Being to elevate Essay on Man to Renaissance philosophy. She doesn't think much of the poem apparently, but she's right that Pope uses the metaphor sparingly and in a far more flexible way than Renaissance, appropriate to the empirical natural history and philosophy of his age. Generally lots of useful comments on Restoration and Augustan literature, periodization and lit crit fashions. Downloaded pdf to Note

C Knight: Unit-ideas unleashed: a reinterpretation and reassessment of Lovejovian methodology in the history of ideas (2012) - Enlighten
Knight, C. (2012) Unit-ideas unleashed: a reinterpretation and reassessment of Lovejovian methodology in the history of ideas. Journal of the Philosophy of History, 6 (2). pp. 195-217 -- pdf from philpapers -- This article argues for an unconventional interpretation of Arthur O. Lovejoy’s distinctive approach to method in the history of ideas. It is maintained that the value of the central concept of the ‘unit-idea’ has been misunderstood by friends and foes alike. The commonality of unit-ideas at different times and places is often defined in terms of familial resemblance. But such an approach must necessarily define unit-ideas as being something other than the smallest conceptual unit. It is therefore in tension with Lovejoy’s methodological prescription and, more importantly, disregards a potentially important aspect of intellectual history – the smaller conceptual units themselves. In response to this, an alternative interpretation of unit-ideas as ‘elemental’ – as the smallest identifiable conceptual components – is put forward. Unlike the familial resemblance approach, the elemental approach can provide a plausible explanation for changes in ideas. These are construed as being either the creation of new unit-ideas, the disappearance of existing ones, or alterations in the groups of unit-ideas that compose idea-complexes. The focus on the movement of unit-ideas and idea-complexes through history can also be sensitive to contextual issues, carefully distinguishing the different meanings that single words may have, in much the way that both Lovejoy and his influential critic Quentin Skinner suggest.

Tim Lacy - The Lovejovian Roots of Adler's Philosophy of History: Authority, Democracy, Irony, and Paradox in Britannica's Great Books of the Western World (2010)
Project MUSE - Tim Lacy. "The Lovejovian Roots of Adler's Philosophy of History: Authority, Democracy, Irony, and Paradox in Britannica's Great Books of the Western World." Journal of the History of Ideas 71.1 (2010): 113-137......Downloaded pdf to Note - also available in html -- This article explores how Mortimer J. Adler's philosophy of history, as it developed from the 1930s through the 1950s, affected the construction of Encyclopedia Britannica's Great Books of the Western World and the same set's Syntopicon. A thorough examination of Adler's influences (e.g. Arthur O. Lovejoy, Jacques Maritain, and Columbia University faculty) demonstrates that his philosophy of history derived from a coincidental confluence of developments in the fields of literature, history, and philosophy. Adler's processing of these trends reveals both irony and paradox, and also explains some philosophical objections articulated by later foes of the great books idea.

"Depending on one's own philosophy of history and beliefs about human nature, the Syntopicon either embodied Adler's paradox and the fallacy of presentism, or else stood as a tall marker against the fallacy of historicism. Ultimately, the maxim of the eighteenth-century author Henry St. John, the Lord Viscount Bolingbroke, best approximates Adler's professional commitment: "History is philosophy teaching by examples." "-- NOOOOOO,!!!!

Leo Catana: Lovejoy's Readings of Bruno: Or How Nineteenth-century History of Philosophy was "Transformed" into the History of Ideas
Project MUSE - Leo Catana. "Lovejoy's Readings of Bruno: Or How Nineteenth-century History of Philosophy was "Transformed" into the History of Ideas." Journal of the History of Ideas71.1 (2010): 91-112. Project MUSE. Web. 28 Aug. 2013. <http://muse.jhu.edu/>.....Available as html and pdf. Arthur O. Lovejoy made rather grand methodological statements about the nature of history of ideas in his Great Chain of Being (1936). These statements were, it is argued, rhetorical declarations, intended to produce the conviction in the minds of his readers that history of ideas was distinct from history of philosophy and thus deserved institutional independence; they were not adequate descriptions of the method actually practiced. Instead, Lovejoy's historiographical practice can be contextualized within nineteenth-century general histories of philosophy. His studies on Giordano Bruno, dating from 1904 and 1936 respectively, illustrate this historiographical continuity.

Jouni-Matti Kuukkanen: Making Sense of Conceptual Change (2008)
JSTOR: History and Theory, Vol. 47, No. 3 (Oct., 2008), pp. 351-372.....Downloaded pdf to Note. ?... Arthur Lovejoy's history of unit-ideas and the history of concepts are often criticized for being historically insensitive forms of history-writing. Critics claim that one cannot find invariable ideas or concepts in several contexts or times in history without resorting to some distortion. One popular reaction is to reject the history of ideas and concepts altogether, and take linguistic entities as the main theoretical units. Another reaction is to try to make ideas or concepts context-sensitive and to see their histories as dynamic processes of transformation. The main argument in this paper is that we cannot abandon ideas or concepts as theoretical notions if we want to write an intelligible history of thought. They are needed for the categorization and classification of thinking, and in communication with contemporaries. Further, the criterion needed to subsume historical concepts under a general concept cannot be determined merely on the basis of their family resemblances, which allows variation without an end, since talk of the same concepts implies that they share something in common. I suggest that a concept in history should be seen to be composed of two components: the core of a concept and the margin of a concept. On the basis of this, we can develop a vocabulary for talking about conceptual changes. The main idea is that conceptual continuity requires the stability of the core of the concept, but not necessarily that of the margin, which is something that enables a description of context-specific features. If the core changes, we ought to see it as a conceptual replacement.
