    Anthony Carreras (forthcoming). Amicably Deceived. Philosophical Papers:1-26.
    A widely accepted thesis in the philosophy of friendship is what I call "the self-knowledge thesis," which says that good friendship is essentially such as to conduce to self-knowledge. I argue in this paper that the self-knowledge thesis is false. Good friendship need not conduce to self-knowledge, for it is part of the nature and value of friendship that it might lead us to form false beliefs about ourselves.

    Andrew Naylor (forthcoming). Psychological Deprogramming-Reprogramming and the Right Kind of Cause. Philosophical Papers:1-22.
    This article makes use of an example of Williams’s (1970), an example involving so-called psychological deprogramming–reprogramming, in arguing that procedures such as Teletransportation would not provide what matters to us in our self-interested concern for the future. This is so because the beliefs and other psychological states of a resultant person would not be appropriately causally dependent on any beliefs or other psychological states of the original person.

    Bill Wringe (forthcoming). Epicurean Wills, Empty Hopes, and the Problem of Post Mortem Concern. Philosophical Papers.
    Many Epicurean arguments for the claim that death is nothing to us depend on the 'Experience Constraint': the claim that something can only be good or bad for us if we experience it. However, Epicurus' commitment to the Experience Constraint makes his attitude to will-writing puzzling. How can someone who accepts the Experience Constraint be motivated to bring about post mortem outcomes? -/- We might think that an Epicurean will-writer could be pleased by the thought of his loved ones being (...)

    Lucy Allais (forthcoming). Kant’s Racism. Philosophical Papers:1-36.
    After a long period of comparative neglect, in the last few decades growing numbers of philosophers have been paying attention to the startling contrast presented between Kant’s universal moral theory, with its inspiring enlightenment ideas of human autonomy, equality and dignity and Kant’s racism. Against Charles Mills, who argues that the way to make Kant consistent is by attributing to him a threshold notion of moral personhood, according to which some races do not qualify for consideration under the categorical imperative, (...)

    Jeff Engelhardt (forthcoming). Token Causal Powers. Philosophical Papers:1-22.
    This paper proposes that the relation between property instances and token causal powers is akin to the relation between primary substances and property instances on the Aristotelian account of property instantiation. This view permits an individual to have two tokens of the same type of causal power. Paul Audi has argued that this cannot be: two tokens of the same power type are discernible, he claims, only if they are borne by discernible individuals. In the context of this criticism, he (...)

    Patrick Fleming (forthcoming). Good Advice. Philosophical Papers:1-27.
    Advice is interesting because it is a relationship that is built upon two asymmetries. Advice concerns what the advisee ought to do. For that reason, considerations of autonomy suggest that the advisee has a greater claim on what matters in deliberation. However, the advisor is wiser than the advisee. That suggests that the advisor has a greater insight into what matters in deliberation. These are the asymmetry of autonomy and the asymmetry of wisdom. To account for both, I argue for (...)

    Dimitris Gakis (forthcoming). Philosophy as Paradigms: An Account of a Contextual Metaphilosophical Perspective. Philosophical Papers:1-31.
    The present paper aims at highlighting some of the main characteristics of a descriptive contextual approach to philosophy. Descriptive, in the sense that it centers not on the question of what philosophy should be, but on what philosophy is, has been, or may be. And contextual, in the sense that it treats philosophy as human praxis situated in and interacting with certain social and historical settings. In order to develop such an account, we engage closely with Kuhn’s paradigm-centered contextual approach (...)

  11. George Hull (forthcoming). Racial Inequality. Philosophical Papers:1-38.
    In societies with a history of racial oppression, present-day relations between members of different racialised groups are often difficult, tense, prone to escalate into open hostility. This can partly be put down to the persistence of racist beliefs and sentiments. But it is plausible to think there are also non-racist ways in which societal relations between members of different racialised groups go seriously wrong. This is not to downplay the extent to which racism persists: rather, the point is that there (...)

    Alfonso Muñoz-Corcuera (forthcoming). Understanding Real and Fictional Persons: Narrative Negotiations Seen Through Cognitive Poetics. Philosophical Papers:1-25.
    Narrative theories of personal identity have traditionally taken literary characters as models to better understand how our identities are constituted through the narratives of our lives. However, there have been several recent criticisms of these comparisons, showing that philosophers of personal identity paid no attention to the nature of literary characters, and consequently, these philosopher’s comparisons were under-motivated. In the present article, I rely on a cognitive framework to define literary characters. From that point of view, I assert that it (...)

    Samantha Vice (forthcoming). Essentialising Rhetoric and Work on the Self. Philosophical Papers:1-29.
    This paper is a response to recent student protests at South African universities, and the essentialising rhetoric and practices that characterise South African public debates. I explore the likely responses of white South Africans to views that seem to make their whiteness inescapable and necessarily morally bad.
