  1. Carol Slater (2007). Review of Scott R. Sehon's Teleological Realism. [REVIEW] Psyche 13.
    Like the ring of fire around the Pacific, conceptual fracture between everyday acceptance of mentality and allegiance to the physical arouses uneasy attention. Theorists have dedicated impressive ingenuity to domestication of belief/desire psychology within a physical worldview; they have enthusiastically welcomed its demise in the wake of inevitable falsification by future science. At least one philosopher has urged that we cross our fingers when attributing intentional states. Rejecting assumptions common to these responses, Scott Sehon proposes that the claims of commonsense (...)

  2. Carol Slater (2006). A Review Of Ruth Byrne, The Rational Imagination: How People Create Alternatives To Reality. [REVIEW] Psyche 12.
    Introducing The Rational Imagination, Ruth Byrne tells us that rational thought has turned out to be “more imaginative than cognitive scientists...supposed,” and—more to the point here—that “[I]maginative thought is more rational than scientists imagined” . It would be unwise to take this mini-manifesto too seriously. The claim to which Byrne actually gives sustained attention is less philosophically sexy and more solidly empirical. This book is primarily concerned with experimental evidence in support of the thesis that the particular counterfactual conjectures people (...)

  3. Carol Slater (2005). Review of Adam Zeman’s Consciousness: A User’s Guide. [REVIEW] Psyche 11.
    Adam Zeman has given us an intriguing book, one that, on principle, eludes easy categorization. On the one hand, like any user’s guide, Consciousness provides information ranging from the most basic to the highly specialized , plus a fifteen page glossary of technical terms . Like any manual, Consciousness is no cosy cover-to-cover read; in a preliminary note, Zeman considerately suggests selective strategies. For all that, the User’s Guide is far from being a typical manual or, for that matter, a (...)

  4. Carol Slater (2004). Goodness has Nothing to Do with It: Why Problem Orientation Need Not Make for Parochial Theory. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (3):357-357.
    Social-cognitive psychologists' problem orientation is, in itself, no threat to the generation of normatively neutral general theory. What would put general theory at risk is, rather, the reliance on a valence-balancing explanatory heuristic. Fortunately, social-cognitive research communities have resources to override this heuristic and utilize more epistemically effective cultural tools.

  8. Carol Slater (1998). More Me? Substance Concepts and Self Concepts. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (1):85-85.
    User intentions invoked to account for the distinctive way in which public-language natural-kind terms gather their extensions are inapplicable in the case of Millikan's substance concepts. I suggest that theoretical justification is preferable and available and raise exploratory questions about the applicability of the notion of substance concepts to the genesis of self concepts.

  11. Carol Slater (1997). Conceptualizing a Sunset [Not Equal] Using a Sunset as a Discriminative Stimulus. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (1):37-38.
    Glenberg offers two different accounts of embodied conceptualization. The first fails in cases where no direct bodily interaction is possible. The second fails in cases where the object in question cannot serve as a discriminative stimulus; moreover, it yields inappropriate content even in cases where it can be applied. Glenberg's disregard for the conceptual agenda set by the social world is also disquieting.
