    Mark Young (2011). Relevance and Relationalism. Metaphysica 12 (1):19-30.
    This paper will provide support for relationalism; the claim that the identity of objects is constituted by the totality of their relations to other things in the world. I will consider how Kit Fine’s criticisms of essentialism within modal logic not only highlight the inability of modal logic to account for essential properties but also arouse suspicion surrounding the possibility of nonrelational properties. I will claim that Fine’s criticisms, together with concerns surrounding Hempel’s paradox, show that it is not possible (...)

    Mark Thomas Young (forthcoming). Technology and Technique: The Role of Skill in the Practice of Scientific Observation. Perspectives on Science:396-415.
    It has long been common to conceive of observation mechanically—as a process of data registration that is marginal and automatic. This paper explores the ways in which this idea has been facilitated by conceptions of instrumental technology as hindering individual variation in the practice of scientific observation. Understanding instruments in this way parallels attitudes towards technology in industrial manufacturing, where individual skill and technique have also been considered sources of uncertainty to be extinguished by mechanization, and if possible, automation. My (...)
