    Christopher Johnson & Jason Taylor (forthcoming). Rejecting Technology: A Normative Defense of Fallible Officiating. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-13.
    There is a growing consensus in both academic and popular reflections on sport that if the accuracy of officiating can be improved by technology, then such assistance ought to be introduced. Indeed, apart from certain practical concerns about technologizing officiating there are few normative objections, and those that are voiced are often poorly articulated and quickly dismissed by critics. In this paper, we take up one of these objections – what is referred to as the loss of the human element (...)

    Scott Seider & Jason Taylor (2011). Broadening College Student Interest in Philosophical Education Through Community Service Learning. Teaching Philosophy 34 (3):197-217.
    The Pulse Program at Boston College is a community service learning program that combines academic study of philosophy and theology with a year-long community service project. An analysis of the Pulse Pro­gram during the 2008–09 academic year revealed that participating students demonstrated a significant increase in their interest in philosophy; a greater likelihood of enrolling in additional philosophy coursework; and a deeper interest in philosophy than classmates not participating in service-learning. Interviews with participating students revealed that the Pulse Program highlighted (...)

    Jason Taylor (2009). Dis-Unified Pluralist Accounts of Causation. Pacific Philosophical Quarterly 90 (3):388-401.
    One way of assessing the philosophical literature on causation is to consider views on the nature of the causal relation. Early theorists were 'monists', taking there to be one causal relation. More recent theorists, however, have turned to pluralism, which holds that the causal relation is only accurately captured by two (or more) relations. I argue that one way of being a pluralist – the way which takes there to be exactly two types of causation – is self defeating, if (...)

    Jason Taylor & Christopher Johnson (2014). Virtuous Victory: Running Up the Score and the Anti-Blowout Thesis. Philosophical Explorations 41 (2):247-266.
    A difficult question in the philosophy of sport concerns how winning athletes should perform in uneven contests in which victory has been secured well before the competition is over. Nicholas Dixon, the protagonist in the ongoing debate, argues against critics who urge following an 'anti-blowout' thesis that there is nothing intrinsically wrong with running up the score. We engage this debate, providing much needed distinctions, and draw on Aristotelian resources to explore a framework by which to understand competing claims found (...)
