  2. G. Nutbrown, Trusting Teachers Within Reason: Education and the Epistemology of Testimony.
    The epistemological concept of “testimony” refers to the social practice of acquiring beliefs and knowledge from what others tell us. Disparaged by philosophers as incompatible with rational autonomy and by educationalists as a passive form of learning, it is nevertheless a source we rely on for formative learning as children and throughout our lives. Both traditionalist and progressivist educationalists have underestimated the cognitive achievement involved in comprehending and learning from testimonial speech acts and also the role such speech acts play (...)

  4. N. Maxwell, What Philosophy Ought to Be.
    The proper task of philosophy is to keep alive awareness of what our most fundamental, important, urgent problems are, what our best attempts are at solving them and, if possible, what needs to be done to improve these attempts. Unfortunately, academic philosophy fails disastrously even to conceive of the task in these terms. It makes no attempt to ensure that universities tackle global problems - global intellectually, and global in the sense of concerning the future of the earth and humanity. (...)

  5. N. Maxwell, What's Wrong with Science? Towards a People's Rational Science of Delight and Compassion.
    What ought to be the aims of science? How can science best serve humanity? What would an ideal science be like, a science that is sensitively and humanely responsive to the needs, problems and aspirations of people? How ought the institutional enterprise of science to be related to the rest of society? What ought to be the relationship between science and art, thought and feeling, reason and desire, mind and heart? Should the social sciences model themselves on the natural sciences: (...)

  6. N. Maxwell, Has Science Established That the Cosmos is Physically Comprehensible?
    Most scientists would hold that science has not established that the cosmos is physically comprehensible – i.e. such that there is some as-yet undiscovered true physical theory of everything that is unified. This is an empirically untestable, or metaphysical thesis. It thus lies beyond the scope of science. Only when physics has formulated a testable unified theory of everything which has been amply corroborated empirically will science be in a position to declare that it has established that the cosmos is (...)

  7. N. Maxwell, Induction and Scientific Realism: Enstein Versus van Fraassen. Part One: How to Solve the Problem of Induction.
    In this three-part paper, my concern is to expound and defend a conception of science, close to Einstein's, which I call aim-oriented empiricism. I argue that aim-oriented empiricsim has the following virtues. It solve the problem of induction; it provides decisive reasons for rejecting van Fraassen's brilliantly defended but intuitively implausible constructive empiricism; it solves the problem of verisimilitude, the problem of explicating what it can mean to speak of scientific progress given that science advances from one false theory to (...)

  8. N. Maxwell, What the Task of Creating Civilization has to Learn From the Success of Modern Science: Towards a New Enlightenment.
    Modern scientific, academic inquiry suffers from a serious, wholesale fundamental defect. Though very successful at improving specialized scientific knowledge and technological know-how, it is an intellectual and human disaster when it comes to helping us realize what is of value in life - in particlar, when it comes to helping us create a more enlightened, civilized world.

  9. N. Maxwell, A Priori Conjectural Knowledge in Physics.
    The history of western philosophy is split to its core by a long-standing, fundamental dispute. On the one hand there are the so-called empiricists, like Locke, Berkeley, Hume, Mill, Russell, the logical positivists, A. J. Ayer, Karl Popper and most scientists, who hold empirical considerations alone can be appealed to in justifying, or providing a rationale for, claims to factual knowledge, there being no such thing as a priori knowledge – items of factual knowledge that are accepted on grounds other (...)

  10. N. Maxwell, Popper’s Paradoxical Pursuit of Natural Philosophy.
    Unlike almost all other philosophers of science, Karl Popper sought to contribute to natural philosophy or cosmology – a synthesis of science and philosophy. I consider his contributions to the philosophy of science and quantum theory in this light. There is, however, a paradox. Popper’s most famous contribution – his principle of demarcation – in driving a wedge between science and metaphysics, serves to undermine the very thing he professes to love: natural philosophy. I argue that Popper’s philosophy of science (...)

  11. L. Fenton-Glynn, K. Easwaran, C. Hitchcock & J. Velasco, Updating on the Credences of Others: Disagreement, Agreement, and Synergy.
    We introduce a family of rules for adjusting one's credences in response to learning the credences of others. These rules have a number of desirable features. 1. They yield the posterior credences that would result from updating by standard Bayesian conditionalization on one's peers' reported credences if one's likelihood function takes a particular simple form. 2. In the simplest form, they are symmetric among the agents in the group. 3. They map neatly onto the familiar Condorcet voting results. 4. They (...)

  12. N. Maxwell, What’s Wrong With Aim-Oriented Empiricism?
    For four decades it has been argued that we need to adopt a new conception of science called aim-oriented empiricism. This has far-reaching implications and repercussions for science, the philosophy of science, academic inquiry in general, the conception of rationality, and how we go about attempting to make progress towards as good a world as possible. Despite these far-reaching repercussions, aim-oriented empiricism has so far received scant attention from philosophers of science. Here, sixteen objections to the validity of the argument (...)

  13. E. Allison & P. Fonagy, When is Truth Relevant?
    We argue that the experience of knowing and having the truth about oneself known in the context of therapy is not an end in itself; rather, it is important because the trust engendered by this experience opens one up to learning about one’s social world and finding better ways to live in it. We consider the consequences of a lack of epistemic trust in terms of psychopathology.

  14. Z. Zhou, Fast Falls the Eventide: An Essay on Temporal Ontology.
    If Jones buttered the toast at midnight, there is, according to Davidson, an event of Jones’ buttering of the toast. But what kind of temporal phenomenon is being referred to if Jones is in the midst of buttering the toast? By taking a Davidsonian events-based semantics as its starting point, this thesis seeks an answer to the question of “What account of temporal ontology is needed in order to explain the semantic features of the progressive aspect in English?”. In order (...)

  17. T. Thompson, The Management of Time: New Orders for Executive Education.
    The non-credit bearing and ongoing education and development of mid- to late-career corporate executives is known by the compound term executive education. Reductively stated, executive education, for its corporate consumers and its business school providers, is predicated on the relationship between an order and its execution ; a relationship I call the “order-execution cognate”. With the word execution derived from Greek for sequence, and with the sequence of an execution following-on from its corresponding order, sequentiality is the essence of execution, (...)

    In this opening chapter, we review the literature on information quality. Our major aim is to introduce the issues, and trace some of the history of the debates, with a view to situating the chapters in this volume – whose authors come from different disciplines – to help make them accessible to readers with different backgrounds and expertise. We begin in this section by tracing some influential analyses of IQ in computer science. This is a useful basis for examining some (...)

  19. P. K. Illari, Information Quality: Purpose and Dimensions.
    In this article I examine the problem of categorising dimensions of information quality, against the background of a serious engagement with the hypothesis that IQ is purpose-dependent. First, I examine some attempts to offer categories for IQ, and a specific problem that impedes convergence in such categorisations is diagnosed. Based on this new understanding, I suggest a new way of categorising both IQ dimensions and the metrics used in implementation of IQ improvement programmes according to what they are properties of.

  20. I. G. Stewart, Political Committment and Historical Epistemology: Raymond Aron's Transcendental Relativism Reconsidered.
    This chapter examines the French philosopher Raymond Aron’s Introduction à la philosophie de l’histoire to establish how its historical epistemology informed his understanding of political commitment. Reflecting on a disagreement between its commentators as to whether the book’s relativism undermines its moderate political conclusions, it is argued that this controversy reflects a problematic epistemological agnosticism at the heart of Aron’s political thought. This is encapsulated in his description of a ‘transcendental relativism’ in the Introduction, which this chapter links to Aron’s (...)

  21. D. M. Berry, Probabilistic Arguments in Mathematics.
    This thesis addresses a question that emerges naturally from some observations about contemporary mathematical practice. Firstly, mathematicians always demand proof for the acceptance of new results. Secondly, the ability of mathematicians to tell if a discourse gives expression to a proof is less than perfect, and the computers they use are subject to a variety of hardware and software failures. So false results are sometimes accepted, despite insistence on proof. Thirdly, over the past few decades, researchers have also developed a (...)

Examines the motivations behind the collection, its arrangement, function, and use, and what this suggests about how natural historians valued pictures and their epistemological significance, especially as signifiers of the structural coherence of nature.

    Some possible reasons for the historical absence of psychoanalytic outcome research are examined, particularly the incompatibilities in the world view espoused by psychoanalysis and that of most of current science and the assumption of privileged knowledge on the part of many psychoanalysts and their training institutions. It is argued that the view that psychoanalysis offers an alternative epistemology to that of scientific research maintains psychoanalysis in its inferior position. The existing evidence for the effectiveness of adult psychoanalytic psychotherapy is reviewed (...)

Despite its popularity across many areas of philosophy, the so-called Kimean view of events has been the subject of numerous criticisms, and is widely thought to be an implausible account of what events ontologically are (and, relatedly, an implausible analysis of the conditions under which two events are not distinct).

Instead of giving priority to the search for knowledge, universities need to devote themselves to seeking and promoting wisdom by rational means, wisdom being the capacity to realize what is of value in life, for oneself and others, wisdom thus including knowledge, understanding and technological know-how, but much else besides.

    Critical examination of the processes by which we as nurses judge and reach clinical decisions is important. It facilitates the maintenance and refinement of good standards of nursing care and the pinpointing of areas where improvement is needed. In turn this potentially could support broader validation of nurse expertise and contribute to emancipation of the nursing profession. As pure theory, clinical decision-making may appear abstract and alien to nurses struggling in 'the swampy lowlands' (Schon 1983) of the realities of practice. (...)

    In management research, theory testing confronts a paradox described by Meehl in which designing studies with greater methodological rigor puts theories at less risk of falsification. This paradox exists because most management theories make predictions that are merely directional, such as stating that two variables will be positively or negatively related. As methodological rigor increases, the probability that an estimated effect will differ from zero likewise increases, and the likelihood of finding support for a directional prediction boils down to a (...)

The goal of this book is to assess the main arguments against the possibility of knowledge, and its conclusions challenge this consensus. The book articulates and defends a theory of knowledge that belongs firmly in the truth-tracking tradition, and argues that although the theory has the (...)

  66. Cv Thornley, Information Retrieval (IR) and the Paradox of Change: An Analysis Using the Philosophy of Parmenides.
    Purpose – This paper aims to explore whether philosophical insights from Plato's dialogue “Parmenides” on the complex and often paradoxical nature of change can illuminate the nature of information retrieval (IR). IR is modelled as a dialectic process involving mutually dependent yet conflicting forces between the subjective and the objective. These forces operate to produce change in the subjective experience of users (becoming informed) through facilitating a relationship with objective documents. Accurately modelling, predicting and enabling this process remains a persistent (...)

  67. A. A. Frediani & C. Boano, Processes for Just Products: The Capability Space of Participatory Design.
    This chapter explores the relationship between the process and product of participatory design. It argues that there is an unhelpful dichotomy that pushes the thinking and practice of participatory design through two separate schools of thought: planning versus design. This chapter suggests that advancements in overcoming such challenge can be reached by perceiving design through the lends of the capability approach. The concept of ‘capability space’ is proposed to explore the process and product components of freedom associated to participatory design. (...)

    Modern science began as natural philosophy. In the time of Newton, what we call science and philosophy today – the disparate endeavours – formed one mutually interacting, integrated endeavour of natural philosophy: to improve our knowledge and understanding of the universe, and to improve our understanding of ourselves as a part of it. Profound, indeed unprecedented discoveries were made. But then natural philosophy died. It split into science on the one hand, and philosophy on the other. This happened during the (...)

    For forty years I have argued that we urgently need to bring about a revolution in academia so that the basic task becomes to seek and promote wisdom. How did I come to argue for such a preposterously gigantic intellectual revolution? It goes back to my childhood. From an early age, I desired passionately to understand the physical universe. Then, around adolescence, my passion became to understand the heart and soul of people via the novel. But I never discovered how (...)

    Whilst it is often maintained that a person comes under a 'secondary' legal duty to compensate a victim of his wrong, this is mistaken. The wrongdoer has a moral obligation to compensate, but only a legal liability to do so.

    It is controversial what needs to be proved in order to benefit from the presumption of resulting trusts, whether all resulting trusts arise by operation of law, and whether resulting trusts are restitutionary or not. The author shows that a claimant need not prove an absence of consideration before benefitting from the presumption, and argues that, whilst presumed resulting trusts respond to intention, they arise by operation of law. Finally, the author argues that one argument for a restitutionary analysis of (...)

A trust is a facilitative device that subjects of the law can use to create structures of beneficial property interests, and the law is shaped around the creative structures (...)

  82. Je Penner, Value, Property and Unjust Enrichment: Trusts of Traceable Proceeds.
    Restitution lawyers commonly speak of the 'transfer' of value; this is misconceived. Values are realised, not transferred, only property rights are transferred. This realisation distinctly illuminates the relationship between the law of restitution and the law of tracing, strongly suggesting that trusts of traceable proceeds are not examples of restitutionary entitlements which reverse unjust enrichments.

    The paper starts with brief biographical details of John Rawls’s life, and indications regarding the significance of his proposal. The most relevant part of the article is dedicated to the discussion of the concept of democracy as it is included in Rawls’s theory of Justice. Rawls tries to find a solution to the incompatibility of two different motivations for democracy: the instrumental and the intrinsic defence. It followsfrom Rawls’s proposal that the two defences need not necessarily to be incompatible. Participation (...)

    It is argued that the truth status of emergent properties of complex adaptive systems models should be based on an epistemology of proof by constructive verification and therefore on the ontological axioms of a non-realist logical system such as constructivism or intuitionism. ‘Emergent’ properties of complex adaptive systems (CAS) models create particular epistemological and ontological challenges. These challenges bear directly on current debates in the philosophy of mathematics and in theoretical computer science. CAS research, with its emphasis on computer simulation, (...)
