  1. Bijoy H. Boruah (forthcoming). Recalcitrant Quasi-Cartesianism in Recent Philosophy of Mind. Indian Philosophical Quarterly.
    Contemporary quasi-Cartesianism about mental phenomena is the view of the perspectival nature of consciousness and the inscrutability of phenomenal experience, both being first-person-centered.

Bringing together the various answers that have been offered by philosophers from Aristotle to Roger Scruton, he shows that while some philosophers have denied any rational basis to our emotional responses to fiction, others have argued that the emotions evoked by fiction are not real emotions at all.
