  1. Joel Press (2009). Physical Explanations and Biological Explanations, Empirical Laws and a Priori Laws. Biology and Philosophy 24 (3):359-374.
    Philosophers intent upon characterizing the difference between physics and biology often seize upon the purported fact that physical explanations conform more closely to the covering law model than biological explanations. Central to this purported difference is the role of laws of nature in the explanations of these two sciences.

    Joel Kenton Press (2008). The Scientific Use of 'Representation' and 'Function': Avoiding Explanatory Vacuity. Synthese 161 (1):119 - 139.
    Nearly all of the ways philosophers currently attempt to define the terms ‘representation’ and ‘function’ undermine the scientific application of those terms by rendering the scientific explanations in which they occur vacuous. Since this is unacceptable, we must develop analyses of these terms that avoid this vacuity. Robert Cummins argues in this fashion in Representations, Targets, and Attitudes. He accuses ‘use theories’ of representational content of generating vacuous explanations, claims that nearly all current theories of representational content are use theories, (...)

    Cet ouvrage s’inscrit délibérément en dehors des études médiévales traditionnelles si bien que, pour en donner une idée, je suis obligé de le décrire de façon un peu détaillée. Il se présente comme une histoire de la « balance » des années 1250 à 1375. Mais quel sens a ici le mot « balance »? L’auteur –J.K.- donne « équilibre » comme quasi synonyme. L’introduction va plus loin. Elle en parle comme d’un sentiment non exprimé de la façon dont les (...)
