  1. Pauline C. Lee, Two Confucian Theories on Children and Childhood: Commentaries on the Analects and the Mengzi.
    In this article I uncover, describe, and analyze two native Chinese theories by way of exploring the commentarial tradition through the centuries on two passages from Confucian classics: Mengzi 孟子 4B12 and Analects 論語 11.25. One view I explore is of the child as a cluster of role-specific duties, whereupon debates regard proper behavior for a junior in society; a second conception is of the child as an existential quality to be preserved or rediscovered, or a special stage in life (...)

  1. Timothy Childers & Ondrej Majer, Introduction to the Special Issue Epistemic Aspects of Many-Valued Logics.
    The papers in this special issue are based on presentations delivered at the conference Epistemic Aspects of Many-valued Logics, held at the Institute of Philosophy of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, in Prague, 2010. All papers consequently revolve around the application of non-classical logical tools—mathematical fuzzy logic and/or probability theory—to epistemological issues.Timothy Williamson employs a modal epistemic logic enriched with probabilities to generalize an argument against the KK-principle. He argues that we can know a proposition even if (...)

  2. Nicholaos Jones, Bowtie Structures, Pathway Diagrams, and Topological Explanation.
    While mechanistic explanation and, to a lesser extent, nomological explanation are well-explored topics in the philosophy of biology, topological explanation is not. Nor is the role of diagrams in topological explanations. These explanations do not appeal to the operation of mechanisms or laws, and extant accounts of the role of diagrams in biological science explain neither why scientists might prefer diagrammatic representations of topological information to sentential equivalents nor how such representations might facilitate important processes of explanatory reasoning unavailable to (...)

  3. Vincenzo Marra, The Problem of Artificial Precision in Theories of Vagueness: A Note on the Rôle of Maximal Consistency.
    The problem of artificial precision is a major objection to any theory of vagueness based on real numbers as degrees of truth. Suppose you are willing to admit that, under sufficiently specified circumstances, a predication of “is red” receives a unique, exact number from the real unit interval [0, 1]. You should then be committed to explain what is it that determines that value, settling for instance that my coat is red to degree 0.322 rather than 0.321. In this note (...)

  4. Mahmoud Morvarid, The Discrimination Argument: A Reply to Dierig.
    Boghossian’s discrimination argument aims to show that content externalism undermines the privileged access thesis. Simon Dierig has recently proposed a new objection to Boghossian’s argument according to which having a “twater thought” is not an alternative, and a fortiori not a relevant alternative, to possessing a “water thought”. Dierig also considers, and criticizes, a modified version of the discrimination argument which would be immune to his objection. I shall argue, first, that he fails to advance a successful objection to the (...)

  5. Harry Smit & Peter M. S. Hacker, Seven Misconceptions About the Mereological Fallacy: A Compilation for the Perplexed.
    If someone commits the mereological fallacy, then he ascribes psychological predicates to parts of an animal that apply only to the (behaving) animal as a whole. This incoherence is not strictly speaking a fallacy, i.e. an invalid argument, since it is not an argument but an illicit predication. However, it leads to invalid inferences and arguments, and so can loosely be called a fallacy. However, discussions of this particular illicit predication, the mereological fallacy, show that it is often misunderstood. Many (...)

  1. Scott Alsid & Mario Serna, Unifying Geometrical Representations of Gauge Theory.
    We unify three approaches within the vast body of gauge-theory research that have independently developed distinct representations of a geometrical surface-like structure underlying the vector-potential. The three approaches that we unify are: those who use the compactified dimensions of Kaluza–Klein theory, those who use Grassmannian models (also called gauge theory embedding or \(CP^{N-1}\) models) to represent gauge fields, and those who use a hidden spatial metric to replace the gauge fields. In this paper we identify a correspondence between the geometrical (...)

  2. Yuichiro Kitajima, Imperfect Cloning Operations in Algebraic Quantum Theory.
    No-cloning theorem says that there is no unitary operation that makes perfect clones of non-orthogonal quantum states. The objective of the present paper is to examine whether an imperfect cloning operation exists or not in a C*-algebraic framework. We define a universal \(\epsilon \) -imperfect cloning operation which tolerates a finite loss \(\epsilon \) of fidelity in the cloned state, and show that an individual system’s algebra of observables is abelian if and only if there is a universal \(\epsilon \) (...)

  3. V. K. Oikonomou, Localized Fermions on Superconducting Domain Walls and Extended Supersymmetry with Non-Trivial Topological Charges.
    In this letter we demonstrate that the fermionic zero modes on a superconducting domain wall can be associated to an one dimensional \(N=6\) supersymmetry that contains non-trivial topological charges. In addition, the system also possesses three distinct \(N=4\) supersymmetries with non-trivial topological charges and we also study some duality transformations of the supersymmetric algebras.

  1. Andrei A. Buckareff & Allen Plug, Escaping Hell but Not Heaven.
    Benjamin Matheson (Int J Philos Relig 75:197–206, 2014) has recently critiqued the escapist account of hell that we have defended. In this paper we respond to Matheson. Building on some of our work in defense of escapism that Matheson does not discuss (in particular, Buckareff and Plug, The problem of hell: a philosophical anthology, Ashgate, Burlington, 2010) we show that the threat posed by Matheson’s critique is chimerical. We begin by summarizing our escapist theory of hell. Next, we summarize both (...)

  2. Elizabeth D. Burns, Pamela Sue Anderson: Re-Visioning Gender in Philosophy of Religion: Reason, Love and Epistemic Locatedness.
    This book is both a revision and a re-visioning. Nine of the ten chapters are based on chapters or articles published elsewhere. Each is concerned with “re-visioning,” defined as looking back with fresh eyes at old ideas and texts (p. ix) and suggesting new areas of exploration. This re-visioning is directed at ideas about gender as these have been communicated either directly or indirectly in the topics and texts of analytic philosophy of religion. It is, however, conducted in the continental (...)

  3. Thomas Park, Faith in God Without Any Revelation?
    In this paper I introduce John D. Caputo’s view of the divine and argue against his claim that we can preserve faith in (an Abrahamic) God while dropping the idea of divine revelation. Despite Caputo’s apophatic point of view, he makes two claims with regard to God, or ’the divine’. First, he claims that we all have a divine call for justice and compassion in us. Secondly, he claims that God’s kingdom comes true if we make it happen and that (...)

  1. Dongmo Zhang & Michael Thielscher, Representing and Reasoning About Game Strategies.
    As a contribution to the challenge of building game-playing AI systems, we develop and analyse a formal language for representing and reasoning about strategies. Our logical language builds on the existing general Game Description Language (GDL) and extends it by a standard modality for linear time along with two dual connectives to express preferences when combining strategies. The semantics of the language is provided by a standard state-transition model. As such, problems that require reasoning about games can be solved by (...)

  1. Peter A. French, Self-Blaming, Repentance, and Atonement.
    Self-blaming expressions are common. For example, “I blame myself for missing the deadline;” “I’m the only one to blame for my alcoholism;” “I can’t stop blaming myself for what he did to me;” “Bless me Father, for I have sinned;” “My bad, I’ll pay for it;” “I’m so ashamed of having done that;” and, “Damn me, I’ve done it again!”Self-blame occupies a sizable chunk of what is published in academic psychology, but there is not that much on the topic in (...)

  2. Ishtiyaque Haji, Blameworthiness and Alternate Possibilities.
    Frankfurt examples attempt to establish that a person can be morally responsible, morally blameworthy, for instance, for doing something despite not being able to do otherwise, as long as the conditions that render him unable to do otherwise play no role in bringing about what he does.Harry Frankfurt, “Alternate Possibilities and Moral Responsibility,” The Journal of Philosophy, Vol. 66 (1969). A more cautious manner of arguing would be to assume only that it is not demonstrated that the agent is not (...)

  3. Andrew C. Khoury, Moral Responsibility.
    The essays in this volume are illustrative of the variety of issues that arise when thinking about moral responsibility. From metaphysical concerns about free will and determinism to normative interest in the nature of our social practices, the philosophy of moral responsibility seems to have something to offer philosophers of nearly any taste or temperament. It is, in part, this pervasive and diverse significance that sparked and has sustained my own interest in the topic. I hope the essays in this (...)

    IntroductionConsider the following two cases:You and your friend Doug are on a road trip, and you want to get an early start in the morning. But you know that this will be impossible if Doug drinks tonight, and you also know that, when night rolls around, Doug will want to drink. What should you do? You have two options. First, you can compromise and coordinate with Doug: for example, you can promise to stay out late tomorrow night if he gets (...)

  5. Hannah Tierney, Tackling It Head On: How Best to Handle the Modified Manipulation Argument.
    IntroductionPatrick Todd’s article, “A New Approach to Manipulation Arguments,” has spurred considerable discussion in the literature.Patrick Todd, “A New Approach to Manipulation Arguments,” Philosophical Studies, Vol. 153, No. 1, (2011), pp. 127–133. In his essay, Todd attempts to reframe how manipulation arguments function dialectically. These arguments, often presented by incompatibilists, typically rely on cases in which agents, though they have met a number of compatibilist sufficient conditions for responsibility, have been manipulated such that they intuitively fail to be blameworthy for (...)

  1. Laura Y. Cabrera, Nicholas S. Fitz & Peter B. Reiner, Empirical Support for the Moral Salience of the Therapy-Enhancement Distinction in the Debate Over Cognitive, Affective and Social Enhancement.
    The ambiguity regarding whether a given intervention is perceived as enhancement or as therapy might contribute to the angst that the public expresses with respect to endorsement of enhancement. We set out to develop empirical data that explored this. We used Amazon Mechanical Turk to recruit participants (N = 2776) from Canada and the United States. Each individual was randomly assigned to read one (and only one) vignette describing the use of a pill to enhance one of 12 cognitive, affective (...)

  1. Yochai Ataria, Dissociation During Trauma: The Ownership-Agency Tradeoff Model.
    Dissociation during trauma (peritraumatic dissociation) lacks an adequate definition. Using data obtained from interviews with 36 posttraumatic individuals conducted according to the phenomenological approach, this paper seeks to improve our understanding of this phenomenon. In particular, it suggesting a trade off model depicting the balance between the sense of agency (the sense of control over the body) and the sense of ownership (the sense that this is my body): a reciprocal relationship appears to exist between these two, and in order (...)

  2. Hilla Jacobson, Phenomenal Consciousness, Representational Content and Cognitive Access: A Missing Link Between Two Debates.
    Two debates loom large in current discussions on phenomenal consciousness. One debate concerns the relation between phenomenal character and representational content. Representationalism affirms, whereas “content separatism” denies, that phenomenal character is exhausted by representational content. Another debate concerns the relation between phenomenal consciousness and cognitive access. “Access separatism” affirms, whereas, e.g., the global workspace model denies, that there are phenomenally conscious states that are not cognitively accessed. I will argue that the two separatist views are related. Access separatism supports content (...)

  1. Claudio Calosi & Damiano Costa, Multilocation, Fusions and Confusions.
    The paper provides a new and detailed critique of Barker and Dowe’s argument against multi-location. This critique is not only novel but also less committal than previous ones in the literature in that it does not require hefty metaphysical assumptions. The paper also provides an analysis of some metaphysical relations between mereological and locational principles.

  2. Calum Miller, Response to Stephen Law on the Evolutionary Argument Against Naturalism.
    Alvin Plantinga’s evolutionary argument against naturalism argues that the probability of our possessing reliable cognitive faculties, given the truth of evolution and naturalism, is low, and that this provides a defeater for naturalism, if the naturalist in question holds to the general truths of evolutionary biology. Stephen Law has recently objected to Plantinga’s evolutionary argument against naturalism by suggesting that there exist conceptual constraints governing the content a belief can have given its relationships to other things, including behaviour (CC). I (...)
