  1. Sacha Bourgeois-Gironde (forthcoming). On Zalta's Notion of Encoding in Conceivability Contexts. Metaphysica.
    Zalta's notion of encoding which lies at the core of his theory of abstract objects is refined so that it can capture cognitive dynamic phenomena such as multiple object-tracking in particular intentional contexts; namely hypothetical stipulation concerning abstract objects and counter-essential conceivability about ordinary ones. Zalta's Modal Axiom of Encoding is weakened and the notion of 'quasi-encoding' is spelt out.

    Mister Freeze : Il est inscrit dans le marbre, sur le piédestal de cette statue de Thémistocle, et sur toutes ses copies dans les capitales du monde occidental, que ce général athénien est au point source de notre civilisation. Qu’en dites-vous chère amie ? Que c’est un culte de la personnalité immérité ? Miss Bazooka : Je laisse la critique idéologique pour un peu plus tard. La place des personnalités dans l’Histoire est un vieil enjeu, qu’on croyait disparu, qui réapparaît (...)

    Do laypeople think that moral responsibility is compatible with determinism? Recently, philosophers and psychologists trying to answer this question have found contradictory results: while some experiments reveal people to have compatibilist intuitions, others suggest that people could in fact be incompatibilist. To account for this contradictory answers, Nichols and Knobe (2007) have advanced a ‘performance error model’ according to which people are genuine incompatibilist that are sometimes biased to give compatibilist answers by emotional reactions. To test for this hypothesis, we (...)

  4. Sacha Bourgeois-Gironde (2010). Is Neuroeconomics Doomed by the Reverse Inference Fallacy? Mind and Society 9 (2):229-249.
    Neuroeconomic studies are liable to fall into the reverse inference fallacy, a form of affirmation of the consequent. More generally neuroeconomics relies on two problematic steps, namely the inference from brain activities to the engagement of cognitive processes in experimental tasks, and the presupposition that such inferred cognitive processes are relevant to economic theorizing. The first step only constitutes the reverse inference fallacy proper and ways to correct it include a better sense of the neural response selectivity of the targeted (...)

  5. Sacha Bourgeois-Gironde & Raphaël Giraud (2009). Framing Effects as Violations of Extensionality. Theory and Decision 67 (4):385-404.
    Framing effects occur when different descriptions of the same decision problem give rise to divergent decisions. They can be seen as a violation of the decisiontheoretic version of the principle of extensionality (PE). The PE in logic means that two logically equivalent sentences can be substituted salva veritate. We explore what this notion of extensionality becomes in decision contexts. Violations of extensionality may have rational grounds. Based on some ideas proposed by the psychologist Craig McKenzie and colleagues, we contend that (...)

  7. Sacha Bourgeois-Gironde (2003). Prière et causalité inversée. Revue Internationale de Philosophie 57 (225):329-348.
    Une analyse de la prière rogatoire (de demande) dirigée vers un état de choses passé est proposée. Je sais qu'un Boeing s'est abîmé en mer, je prie pour qu'un être cher, peut-être déjà mort, ait survécu. On examine les conditions sous lesquelles une telle demande est i) rationnelle et ii) peut être efficace. Deux réponses traditionnelles à ces questions sont particulièrement examinées: la solution moliniste d'une part et les discussions talmudiques sur la prière vaine d'autre part.
