    general qouestions

    Help is needed regarding the use of italic, Capital Letters or 'Capital Letters' when referring to terms or concepts.
    For example –

    1. Oedipus Complex, Oedipus Complex or 'Oedipus Complex' or Oedipus complex etc
    2. How should the terms should be written ('Critical-Idealism' , 'materialistic-skeptical' )?

    "I will show that although Freudenthal's 'Critical-Idealism' and Jung's 'materialistic-skeptical'."

    1. Music, Philosophy… or Music, Philosophy? "This intellectual function is at the heart of every human capability, for good and evil - music, philosophy, art, war, envy, greed, poetry and murder"
    2. 'intermediate betwixt' , intermediate betwixt or Intermediate Betwixt ?

    "Hume defined this imperfect concept as 'intermediate betwixt'".

    Many Thanks!

    Re: general qouestions

    There's a problem here as you will find different usage in different texts. The better known a term is, the more likely it is to appear without ' '. I would search for the term in something like Google Scholar and see if there is a consensus and do what the majority of other writers appear to do.
