    Victor Gijsbers (2007). Why Unification is Neither Necessary nor Sufficient for Explanation. Philosophy of Science 74 (4):481-500.
    In this paper, I argue that unification is neither necessary nor sufficient for explanation. Focusing on the versions of the unificationist theory of explanation of Kitcher and of Schurz and Lambert, I establish three theses. First, Kitcher’s criterion of unification is vitiated by the fact that it entails that every proposition can be explained by itself, a flaw that it is unable to overcome. Second, because neither Kitcher’s theory nor that of Schurz and Lambert can solve the problems of asymmetry (...)

  4. Victor Gijsbers, The Contingent Law: A Tale of Maxwell's Demon.
    In my master's thesis for physics and philosophy, I take a long and hard look at the debates surrounding Maxwell's Demon and the status of the second law of thermodynamics. I try to clarify the use of Maxwell's thought experiment in understanding the second law; to prove that the second law is contingent, given only classical mechanics and time asymmetry; to argue that the law only holds because of facts about the kinds of particles that exist in our universe; to (...)

    Victor Gijsbers (2014). Unification as a Measure of Natural Classification. Theoria: Revista de Teoría, Historia y Fundamentos de la Ciencia 29 (1):71-82.
    Recent interest in the idea that there can be scientific understanding without explanation lends new relevance to Duhem's notion of natural classification. According to Duhem, a classification that is natural teaches us something about nature without being explanatory. However, his conception of naturalnessleaves much to be desired from the point of view of contemporary discussions. In this paper, I argue that we can measure the naturalness of classification by using an amended version of the notion of unification as defined by (...)

    Victor Gijsbers (2015). Can Probabilistic Coherence Be a Measure of Understanding? Theoria: Revista de Teoría, Historia y Fundamentos de la Ciencia 30 (1):53-71.
    Coherence is a measure of how much our beliefs hang together. Understanding is achieved when we see that something is not just a brute, isolated fact. This suggests that it might be possible to use the extant probabilistic measures of coherence to formulate a measure of understanding. We attempt to do so, but it turns out that a coherence theory runs into trouble with the asymmetry of understanding. We identify four difficulties and show how they have been solved by a (...)

    Victor Gijsbers & Leon de Bruin (2013). How Agency Can Solve Interventionism's Problem of Circularity. Synthese 191 (8):1-17.
    Woodward’s interventionist theory of causation is beset by a problem of circularity: the analysis of causes is in terms of interventions, and the analysis of interventions is in terms of causes. This is not in itself an argument against the correctness of the analysis. But by requiring us to have causal knowledge prior to making any judgements about causation, Woodward’s theory does make it mysterious how we can ever start acquiring causal knowledge. We present a solution to this problem by (...)

    Gevaar – werkelijk gevaar, de dreiging van de dood – maken wij als burgers van een moderne samenleving gelukkig maar weinig mee. Mochten we er al eens mee te maken krijgen, dan is dat meestal in een vorm waarin we machteloos zijn er iets tegen te doen: wanneer ons vliegtuig naar beneden stort, is het de piloot die de stuurknuppel in handen heeft; en wanneer een gezwel in ons lichaam gevonden wordt, zullen we op de oncoloog moeten vertrouwen. Wij strijden (...)

    Annick Tillier nous présente dans cet ouvrage tiré d'une thèse, une analyse exhaustive de l'infanticide breton de la Restauration à la fin du Second empire. Certes, elle confirme ce que l'on savait déjà, à savoir que les femmes infanticides au XIXe siècle sont des femmes pauvres, d'origine rurale, analphabètes pour la plupart et, pour l'essentiel, célibataires. Il en est de même pour les modalités de mise à mort, les violences exercées sur les nouveaux nés, la dissimulation du cadavre,..

    The current gridlock around climate change and how to address our global sustainability issues can be understood as resulting from clashes in worldviews. This article summarizes some of the research on worldviews in the contemporary West, showing that these worldviews have different, and frequently complementary, potentials, as well as different pitfalls, with respect to addressing climate change. Simultaneously, the overview shows that, because of their innate reflexivity and their capacity to appreciate and synthesize multiple perspectives, individuals inhabiting integrative worldviews may (...)

    As a contribution to the emerging field of corporate social responsibility cognition, this article reports on the findings of an exploratory study that compares SME owner–managers’ mental models with regard to CSR and related concepts across six European countries. Utilising Repertory Grid Technique, we found that the SME owner–managers’ mental models show a few commonalities as well as a number of differences across the different country samples. We interpret those differences by linking individual cognition to macro-environmental variables, such as language, (...)

In the second part I discuss several comments and objections to the Schurz-Lambert account that were raised by Weber and van Dyck , Gijsbers and de Regt (...)

    It is one of the peculiar features of the movement of translation of Western scientific treatises from Dutch into Japanese, known as Dutch learning , that if first originated in Nagasaki with a group of Japanese interpreters. This group differed from the scholarly community of the capital, Edo, by both training and social status. This article shows how this difference contributes to explaining some of the particularities of rangaku in its initial phase. A case in point is Shizuki Tadao's introduction (...)

    Recent academic articles point to an increased vagueness and overlapping of the concepts around business ethics and corporate responsibility. However, the perception of these notions in the entrepreneurial world can differ from the original academic definitions. The aim of this exploratory study is to uncover how the small business entrepreneur understands these various concepts. For this analysis, the Repertory Grid Technique (RGT) is used, a method with limited applications in the business and society field. Our findings partially reject the confusion (...)

    L'introduction par Aristote de la matière dans la théorie des contraires est une correction des modèles du devenir proposés par ses prédécesseurs : il est désormais possible de penser ensemble devenir et ordre. La matière récuse le dilemme de être et du non-être qui rendait impossible toute théorie de la génération. Cette introduction de la matière commande, à l'intérieur de la pensée d'Aristote, la distinction entre deux sortes de dynamis, et la distinction corrélative de deux sortes de moteurs : les (...)

La question que nous posons peut se dire ainsi : comment Proclus a-t-il pu, contrairement aux indications platoniciennes, insérer dans un écrit inspiré par la méthode mathématique, un développement sur les âmes? À quel prix cette méthode peut-elle être compatible avec l’espace du divin? On s’interrogera aussi bien sur les traits de l’essence des âmes qui peuvent être posés que sur ceux qui ne peuvent être atteints. Ce (...)

    Annick Lesne (2013). Multiscale Analysis of Biological Systems. Acta Biotheoretica 61 (1):3-19.
    It is argued that multiscale approaches are necessary for an explanatory modeling of biological systems. A first step, besides common to the multiscale modeling of physical and living systems, is a bottom-up integration based on the notions of effective parameters and minimal models. Top-down effects can be accounted for in terms of effective constraints and inputs. Biological systems are essentially characterized by an entanglement of bottom-up and top-down influences following from their evolutionary history. A self-consistent multiscale scheme is proposed to (...)
