  1. Gary Wedeking (1969). Duhem, Quine and Grünbaum on Falsification. Philosophy of Science 36 (4):375-380.
    In Chapter 4 of [2] Grünbaum sets out to refute Einstein's philosophy of physical geometry. The latter's theory is seen as lying within the tradition of "anti-empiricist conventionalism" of Duhem and Quine as opposed to the "qualified empiricism" of Poincaré, Carnap and Reichenbach. Consequently Grünbaum sets the stage for his critique of Einstein by discussing certain of the views of these other thinkers. But in these preliminary discussions the various theses are confused and misrepresented in such a way as to (...)

    Gary Wedeking (1987). Locke's Metaphysics of Personal Identity. History of Philosophy Quarterly 4 (1):17 - 31.

    Gary Wedeking (1990). Locke on Personal Identity and the Trinity Controversy of the 1690s. Dialogue 29 (02):163-.

The second part argues that Locke is attempting to come to grips with the circularity problem, but that his solution is ultimately a failure. The argument of II, xxvii, 13 is analyzed in detail and the form of (...)
