  1. J. R. Hobbs (2005). Toward a Useful Concept of Causality for Lexical Semantics. Journal of Semantics 22 (2):181-209.score: 290.0
    We do things in the world by exploiting our knowledge of what causes what. But in trying to reason formally about causality, there is a difficulty: to reason with certainty we need complete knowledge of all the relevant events and circumstances, whereas in everyday reasoning tasks we need a more serviceable but looser notion that does not make such demands on our knowledge. In this work the notion of ‘causal complex’ is introduced for a complete set of events and conditions (...)

  2. J. E. Riggs & G. R. Hobbs (2011). Infant Homicide and Accidental Death in the United States, 1940-2005: Ethics and Epidemiological Classification. Journal of Medical Ethics 37 (7):445-448.score: 290.0
    Potential ethical issues can arise during the process of epidemiological classification. For example, unnatural infant deaths are classified as accidental deaths or homicides. Societal sensitivity to the physical abuse and neglect of children has increased over recent decades. This enhanced sensitivity could impact reported infant homicide rates. Infant homicide and accident mortality rates in boys and girls in the USA from 1940 to 2005 were analysed. In 1940, infant accident mortality rates were over 20 times greater than infant homicide rates (...)

  17. Walter R. Ott (2002). Locke and Signification. Journal of Philosophical Research 27:449-473.score: 5.0
    This paper addresses the following questions: (a) what did Locke mean when he said that ‘words signify ideas’? and (b) what is Locke’s argument for this thesis, and how successful is it? The paper argues that the two most prominent interpretations, those of Norman Kretzmann and E. J. Ashworth, attribute to Locke an argument for his semantic thesis that is fallacious, and that neither can make good sense of two key passages in book 3 of the Essay concerning Human Understanding.

  18. R. Boyd & P. J. Richerson, Culture and the Evolution of the Human Social Instincts.score: 5.0
    Human societies are extraordinarily cooperative compared to those of most other animals. In the vast majority of species, individuals live solitary lives, meeting to only to mate and, sometimes, raise their young. In social species, cooperation is limited to relatives and (maybe) small groups of reciprocators. After a brief period of maternal support, individuals acquire virtually all of the food that they eat. There is little division of labor, no trade, and no large scale conflict. Communication is limited to a (...)
