  3. Scott Seider & Jason Taylor (2011). Broadening College Student Interest in Philosophical Education Through Community Service Learning. Teaching Philosophy 34 (3):197-217.
    The Pulse Program at Boston College is a community service learning program that combines academic study of philosophy and theology with a year-long community service project.

In developing our argument, we introduce conspiracy theories and motivate our particularist approach (§1). We then introduce and define fortuitous data (§2). Lastly, we locate an instance of fortuitous data in one real world conspiracy, the Watergate scandal (§3).

    One way of assessing the philosophical literature on causation is to consider views on the nature of the causal relation. Early theorists were 'monists', taking there to be one causal relation. More recent theorists, however, have turned to pluralism, which holds that the causal relation is only accurately captured by two (or more) relations. I argue that one way of being a pluralist – the way which takes there to be exactly two types of causation – is self defeating, if (...)
