    Karl Pfeifer (1997). Laughter, Freshness, and Titillation. Inquiry 40 (3):307 – 322.
    Robert C. Roberts's suggestion that the conditions for laughter at humor (e.g. jokes) can best be captured with a notion of freshness, as opposed to surprise, is pursued. The relationship freshness has to setup and surprise is clarified, and the place of freshness within a larger system of structuring metaphors is alluded to.

    Karl Pfeifer (1992). Searle, Strong AI, and Two Ways of Sorting Cucumbers. Journal of Philosophical Research 17:347-50.
    This paper defends Searle against the misconstrual of a key claim of “Minds, Brains, and Programs” and goes on to explain why an attempt to turn the tables by using the Chinese Room to argue for intentionality in computers fails.
