  1. Imants Barušs & Robert Woodrow (2013). A Reduction Theorem for the Kripke–Joyal Semantics: Forcing Over an Arbitrary Category Can Always Be Replaced by Forcing Over a Complete Heyting Algebra. [REVIEW] Logica Universalis 7 (3):323-334.
    It is assumed that a Kripke–Joyal semantics ${\mathcal{A} = \left\langle \mathbb{C},{\rm Cov}, {\it F},\Vdash \right\rangle}$ has been defined for a first-order language ${\mathcal{L}}$ . To transform ${\mathbb{C}}$ into a Heyting algebra ${\overline{\mathbb{C}}}$ on which the forcing relation is preserved, a standard construction is used to obtain a complete Heyting algebra made up of cribles of ${\mathbb{C}}$ . A pretopology ${\overline{{\rm Cov}}}$ is defined on ${\overline{\mathbb{C}}}$ using the pretopology on ${\mathbb{C}}$ . A sheaf ${\overline{{\it F}}}$ is made up of sections of (...)

  2. Imants Baruss (2010). Beyond Scientific Materialism: Toward a Transcendent Theory of Consciousness. Journal of Consciousness Studies 17 (7-8):7-8.
    Analysis of the social-cognitive substrate of scientific activity reveals that much of science functions in an inauthentic mode whereby a materialist world view constrains the authentic practice of science. But materialism cannot explain matter, as evidenced by empirical data concerning the nature of physical manifestation. Nor, then, should materialism be the basis for our interpretation of consciousness. It is time to move beyond scientific materialism and develop transcendent theories of consciousness. Such theories should minimally meet the following criteria: they should (...)

  3. Imants Baruss & M. Wammes (2009). Characteristics of Spontaneous Musical Imagery. Journal of Consciousness Studies 16 (1):37-61.
    This study follows upon Steven Brown's 2006 article in The Journal of Consciousness Studies about the ‘perpetual music track', a form of constant musical imagery. With Brown's assistance, a Musical Imagery Questionnaire was developed. The questionnaire was then administered to 67 participants with the intention of establishing relevant scales for quantifying the presence and extent of spontaneous musical imagery in individuals. In addition to the Musical Imagery Questionnaire, the Six Factor Personality Questionnaire, as well as the Transliminality Scale, which is (...)

  4. Imants Baruss (2008). Beliefs About Consciousness and Reality: Clarification of the Confusion Concerning Consciousness. Journal of Consciousness Studies 15 (s 10-11):277-292.
    There is considerable confusion surrounding the notion of consciousness. This confusion can be partially resolved by clarifying the referents of the word 'consciousness'. Doing so, however, reveals a more insidious problem, namely, the role played by personal beliefs in understanding consciousness. In particular, as revealed by a comprehensive survey, such beliefs range along a material- transcendent dimension, with the choice of notions of consciousness corresponding to materialist, conservatively transcendent, or extraordinarily transcendent positions. Further empirical research has revealed that those with (...)

    This paper is concerned with the application of constructions from category theory to Smith and McIntyre's interpretation of Husserl's intentionality. 1 Not only did Hussefl's own ideas change in the course of his lifetime 2 but there are a number of interpretations of Husserl's work 3 so that the line of philosophical investigation that Husserl strongly influenced is still in the process of development. In this vein, Smith and McIntyre have recognized the potential for a possible worlds interpretation of intentionality (...)
