  1. Facundo M. Alonso (forthcoming). What is Reliance? Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
    In this article I attempt to provide a conceptual framework for thinking about reliance in a systematic way. I argue that reliance is a cognitive attitude that has a tighter connection to the guidance of our thought and action than ordinary belief does. My main thesis is that reliance has a ?constitutive aim?: namely, it aims at guiding our thought and action in a way that is sensible from the standpoint of practical or theoretical ends. This helps explain why reliance (...)

  2. Christian Barry (forthcoming). The Regulation of Harm in International Trade. Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
    In his important recent work on global economic integration, Aaron James has defended a principle—Collective Due Care—for determining when a form of economic integration is morally objectionable because it causes unjustified harm (including unemployment, wage suppression, and diminished working conditions). This essay argues that Collective Due Care would yield implausible judgments about trade practices and would be too indeterminate to play the practical role for which it is intended.

  3. Endre Begby (forthcoming). Lexical Norms, Language Comprehension, and the Epistemology of Testimony. Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
    Most testimonial exchange occurs by way of linguistic communication. This suggests that the epistemology of language comprehension is importantly implicated in the epistemology of testimony. But how? This paper takes its departure from a recent argument developed by Sanford Goldberg. According to Goldberg, reflection on the connections between the epistemologies of language comprehension and testimony provides a novel argument for linguistic normativity: without positing public linguistic norms we would be at a loss to account for widely assumed epistemic entitlements to (...)

  4. J. Adam Carter & Emma C. Gordon (forthcoming). Openmindedness and Truth. Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
    While openmindedness is often cited as a paradigmatic example of an intellectual virtue, the connection between openmindedness and truth is tenuous. Several strategies for reconciling this tension are considered, and each is shown to fail; it is thus claimed that openmindedness, when intellectually virtuous, bears no interesting essential connection to truth. In the final section, the implication of this result is assessed in the wider context of debates about epistemic value.

  5. Scott Hill (forthcoming). Giving Up Omnipotence. Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
    For any essential property God has, there is an ability He does not have. He is unable to bring about any state of affairs in which He does not have that property. Such inabilities seem to preclude omnipotence. After making trouble for the standard responses to this problem, I offer my own solution: God is not omnipotent. This may seem like a significant loss for the theist. But I show that it is not. The theist may abandon the doctrine that (...)

  6. Mohan Matthen (forthcoming). Debunking Enactivism: A Critical Notice of Hutto and Myin, Radicalizing Enactivism. [REVIEW] Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
    In this review of Hutto and Myin's Radicalizing Enactivism (MIT 2013), I question the adequacy of a non-representational theory of mind. I argue first that such a theory cannot differentiate cognition from other bodily engagements such as wrestling with an opponent. Secondly, I question whether the simple robots constructed by Rodney Brooks are adequate as models of multimodal organisms. Lastly, I argue that Hutto and Myin pay very little attention to how semantically interacting representations are needed to give an account (...)

  13. Aaron James (forthcoming). Reply to Critics. Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
    This discussion responds to important questions raised about my theory of fairness in the global economy by Christian Barry, Charles Beitz, A.J. Julius and Kristi Olson. I further elaborate how moral argument can be ?internal? to a social practice, how my proposed principles of fairness depend on international practice, how I can admit several relevant conceptions of ?harm? and why my account does not depend on a problematic conception of societal ?endowments?

  17. Esben Nedenskov Petersen (forthcoming). Denying Knowledge. Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
    Intuitions about contextualist cases such as Cohen's airport case pose a problem for classical anti-skeptical versions of invariantism. Recently, Tim Black (2005), Jessica Brown (2006), and Patrick Rysiew (2001, 2005, 2007) have argued that the classical invariantist can respond by arguing that pragmatic aspects of epistemic discourse are responsible for the relevant problematic intuitions. This paper identifies the mechanisms of conversational implicature and impliciture as the basic sources of hope for this explanatory strategy. It then argues that neither of these (...)

  19. Don Ross (forthcoming). Critical Notice of Ron McClamrock "Existential Cognition". Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
    McClamrock argues for a thesis he calls radical externalism' in the behavioral and cognitive sciences. In my paper, I contend that McClamrock's thesis, though true, is not radical. This is because he urges externalism with respect to cognitive task-individuation and task-explanation, both of which are standard practice in the relevant disciplines. Semantic externalism may remain contentious, I argue; but the sense in which philosophers continue to argue about it has little bearing on the actual conduct of cognitive science. I conclude (...)
