  5. Peter Carruthers, Logan Fletcher & J. Brendan Ritchie, The Evolution of Self-Knowledge.
    Humans have the capacity for awareness of many aspects of their own mental lives—their own experiences, feelings, judgments, desires, and decisions. We can often know what it is that we see, hear, feel, judge, want, or decide. This article examines the evolutionary origins of this form of self-knowledge. Two alternatives are contrasted and compared with the available evidence. One is first-person based: self-knowledge is an adaptation designed initially for metacognitive monitoring and control. The other is third-person based: self-knowledge depends on (...)

  6. Karola Stotz, Introduction to "Philosophy in the Trenches : From Naturalized to Experimental Philosophy (of Science)".
    Recent years have seen the development of an approach both to general philosophy and philosophy of science often referred to as ‘experimental philosophy’ or just ‘X-Phi’. Philosophers often make or presuppose empirical claims about how people would react to hypothetical cases, but their evidence for claims about what ‘we’ would say is usually very limited indeed. Philosophers of science have largely relied on their more or less intimate knowledge of their field of study to draw hypothetical conclusions about the state (...)

  11. Nicholas H. Smith, Rationality and Engagement : McDowell, Dreyfus and Zidane.
    The article examines John McDowell's attempt to rehabilitate the classical idea of the rational animal and Hubert Dreyfus's criticisms of that attempt. After outlining the 'engaged' conception of rationality which, in McDowell's view, enables the idea of the rational animal to shake off its intellectualist appearance, the objections posed by Dreyfus are presented that such a conception of rationality is inconsistent with the phenomena of everyday coping, characterised by non-conceptual 'involvement', and expertise, characterised by non-conceptual 'absorption'. Drawing on Michael Fried's (...)

  12. Richard Menary, Cognitive Integration, Enculturated Cognition and the Socially Extended Mind.
    Shaun Gallagher presents an interesting case for the social extension of mind. I argue that there is one way in which Gallagher can argue for social extension, which is continuous with an enculturated model of cognition, such as cognitive integration. This way requires us to think of the mind as extended by social/cultural practices that are specifically targeted at cognitive tasks. The other way in which Gallagher argues for social extension is that social institutions - such as museums or the (...)

  14. J. Brendan Ritchie, Chalmers on Implementation and Computational Sufficiency.
    Chalmers (2011) argues for the following two principles: computational sufficiency and computational explanation. In this commentary I present two criticisms of Chalmers’ argument for the principle of computational sufficiency, which states that implementing the appropriate kind of computational structure suffices for possessing mentality. First, Chalmers only establishes that a system has its mental properties in virtue of the computations it performs in the trivial sense that any physical system can be described computationally to some arbitrary level of detail; further argumentation (...)

  17. Steven Segal, Business Feel : Leading Paradigm Shifts in Organisations.
    Just as a musician needs a feel for music, so managers need a feel for the business of the organisation. The question is: how do we develop our feeling for the business? Through the use of examples of eminent CEOs, Business Feel: Leading Paradigm Shifts in Organisations outlines a variety of skills involved in the development of business feel. It shows how CEOs developed their business attunement in moments of change where they could not take old habits of doing things (...)

  18. John Scannell, 'Do You Know the Way to San Jose?': Burt Bacharach and the Music of Non-Place.
    'Do you know the way to San Jose?', a forlorn Dionne Warwick enquired of anyone who might be listening, as she reconsiders dreams of stardom in the self-imposed exile of the 'great big freeway' of Los Angeles. This cautionary tale in song, levelled against the all-consuming 'nonplaces' of supermodernity that increasingly governed urban life in the late 1960s, was Burt Bacharach and Hal David's jaded paean to the lost anthropological place of the organically social, populated by friends and human relations, (...)

  20. Phil Benson, Autonomy in Language Learning, Learning, and Life.
    This paper addresses three practical questions about autonomy in foreign language learning from a philosophical perspective: (1) Do language teachers have a responsibility to foster personal autonomy as well as teach language knowledge and skills? (2) Does autonomy mean that learners should be unconditionally free to control their learning? (3) Does autonomy necessarily involve control over the content of learning? Arguing that personal autonomy entails learner autonomy and that learner autonomy, in turn, entails language learner autonomy, I offer a qualified (...)

  21. David Rooney, Why We Need Wisdom in Knowledge Intensive Organisations : When Theory Goes Bad.
    This paper considers why wisdom is important in knowledge-intensive service sector organisations. The paper argues that although wisdom necessarily has links to knowledge, knowledge does not necessarily have links to wisdom. The paper also argues that a distinguishing feature of knowledge economies is the extent to which abstract forms of knowledge, particularly theory, are used for commercial purposes in the service sector. The commercial application of abstract knowledge presents particular challenges for managerial and organisational wisdom. An analysis of Enron’s failure (...)

  26. Paul Griffiths & Karola Stotz, Genetics and Philosophy : An Introduction.
    In the past century, nearly all of the biological sciences have been directly affected by discoveries and developments in genetics, a fast-evolving subject with important theoretical dimensions. In this rich and accessible book, Paul Griffiths and Karola Stotz show how the concept of the gene has evolved and diversified across the many fields that make up modern biology. By examining the molecular biology of the 'environment', they situate genetics in the developmental biology of whole organisms, and reveal how the molecular (...)

    Cutting Rhythms is about rhythm in film editing. It breaks down the issue of rhythm in an accessible way that allows filmmakers to apply the principles to their own work and increase their creativity. This book offers possibilities rather than prescriptions. It presents questions editors or filmmakers can ask themselves about their work, and a clear and useful vocabulary for working with those questions. Filled with timeless principles and thought-provoking examples from a variety of international films, this book is destined (...)

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to identify the challenges in adding a critical realist epistemological perspective to a positivist approach in research on listed companies by equity researchers and other financial services professionals. Design/methodology/approach – A purposive sample of publicly available equity research reports was examined to assess the dominant epistemological approach to investment analysis. Findings – It was found that there is an absence of a critical realist epistemological approach to investment analysis, confirming the dominance of (...)

  31. Stephen Chavura, The Separation of Religion and State : Context and Meaning.
    This paper seeks to show the analytical limitations of the most popular terms describing the relationship between religion and politics, the two most popular being "separation of church and state" and "separation of religion and politics". Although the latter term is preferred it is still quite vague in its meaning and, strictly speaking, impossible to put into practice. I try to clarify the meaning of "separation of religion and state" by discussing the early writings out of which the tradition arose, (...)

  35. Brian Henderson-Sellers, Cesar Gonzalez-Perez & Greg Walkerden, An Application of Philosophy in Software Modelling and Future Information Systems Development.
    The influence of mainstream philosophy on conceptual modelling and on modelling language development has historically been arcane or, at best, not recognized, whilst modellers might in fact implicitly espouse one particular philosophical tenet. This paper describes and discusses philosophical stances applied to conceptual modeling in order to make such influences explicit so that we, as conceptual modellers, can take the next step.
