  1. Laurie J. Shrage & Robert Scott Stewart (2015). Philosophizing About Sex. Broadview Press.
    Ancient Greek philosophers, medieval theologians, Enlightenment thinkers, and contemporary humanists alike have debated various aspects of human sexuality, including its purpose, permissibility, normalcy, and risk. Philosophizing About Sex provides a philosophical guide to those longstanding and important debates. Each chapter takes a general issue and shows how ongoing public discussions of sexuality can be illuminated by careful philosophical investigation. Debates over “sexting,” sexual assault, sexual orientation, sex education, prostitution, and so on involve larger questions about morality, law, science, and politics, (...)

  5. Laurie Jeanne Shrage (1983). Two Types of Semantic Ambiguity. Dissertation, University of California, San Diego
    This thesis examines procedures for ascribing ambiguity to particular sentences and words of a language. My discussion focuses on theories advanced by Keith Donnellan, Saul Kripke and David Kaplan regarding the alleged referential/attributive ambiguity of definite descriptions, and on arguments offered by Paul Ziff, David Wiggins and Jerrold Katz concerning the ambiguity of the word 'good'. I distinguish two kinds of semantic ambiguity, which I call "strong" and "weak", and develop a theoretical model of the former. Using this model, I (...)
