  1. Lawrence Phillips & Lisa Pearl (2015). The Utility of Cognitive Plausibility in Language Acquisition Modeling: Evidence From Word Segmentation. Cognitive Science 39 (4):n/a-n/a.
    The informativity of a computational model of language acquisition is directly related to how closely it approximates the actual acquisition task, sometimes referred to as the model's cognitive plausibility. We suggest that though every computational model necessarily idealizes the modeled task, an informative language acquisition model can aim to be cognitively plausible in multiple ways. We discuss these cognitive plausibility checkpoints generally and then apply them to a case study in word segmentation, investigating a promising Bayesian segmentation strategy. We incorporate (...)

  2. Lisa S. Pearl & Igii Enverga (2014). Can You Read My Mindprint?: Automatically Identifying Mental States From Language Text Using Deeper Linguistic Features. Interaction Studies 15 (3):359-387.
    Humans routinely transmit and interpret subtle information about their mental states through the language they use, even when only the language text is available. This suggests humans can utilize the linguistic signature of a mental state , comprised of features in the text. Once the relevant features are identified, mindprints can be used to automatically identify mental states communicated via language. We focus on the mindprints of eight mental states resulting from intentions, attitudes, and emotions, and present a mindprint-based machine (...)

    Plural definite descriptions (e.g. the things on the plate) and free relative clauses (e.g. what is on the plate) have been argued to share the same semantic properties, despite their syntactic differences. Specifically, both have been argued to be non-quantificational expressions referring to the maximal element of a given set (e.g. the set of things on the contextually salient plate). We provide experimental support for this semantic analysis with the first reported simultaneous investigation of children’s interpretation of both constructions, highlighting (...)

    In a recent paper T. D. J. Chappell advances the thesis that orthodox Christianity is incompatible with consequentialism. 1 His thesis is grounded on a number of premises; I shall, however, confine my criticism to only one of them, i.e. a consequentialist God could not possibly have created a world. Here is his argument.

  8. Leon Pearl (1988). Miracles and Theism. Religious Studies 24 (4):483 - 495.
    Recently there have been in the journals a large number of papers on miracles. The issue debated centred on whether miracles, as violations of natural law by a deity, are possible. Alstair McKinnon, George D. Chryssides and P. S. Wadia contend that the concept of a violation of natural law is defective. Others like Guy Robinson and Malcolm Diamonds claim that the acceptance of miracles constitutes a challenge to scientific autonomy. There have also been defenders of miracles, to name just (...)

  9. Leon Pearl (1988). Miracles: The Case for Theism. American Philosophical Quarterly 25 (4):331 - 337.
    IN THE PAPER THERE IS AN ATTEMPT TO ESTABLISH THE FOLLOWING THREE PROPOSITIONS: (1) THE CONCEPT OF MIRACLE IS NOT DEFECTIVE; (2) MIRACLES ARE NOT OBSTACLES TO SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS; (3) THE BEST EXPLANATION FOR THE OCCURRENCE OF CERTAIN RADICAL ANOMALOUS EVENTS IS THAT THE AGENCY OF A SUPERNATURAL BEING WAS PART OF THEIR CAUSE. THE ARGUMENT IS NOT INTENDED TO PROVE GOD’S EXISTENCE FROM MIRACLES, BUT ONLY THAT THERE ARE NO "A PRIORI" OBSTACLES TO SUCH A PROOF. THERE COULD BE (...)

    Recently there have been a number of attempts at showing that God's attributes are conceptually defective . Foremost among the attributes singled out for criticism is omnipotence. But critics have also questioned the logical compatibility of omniscience and immutability and also omnipotence and omniscience.
