    Shannon Dea (2011). The Infinite and the Indeterminate in Spinoza. Dialogue 50 (03):603-621.
    ABSTRACT: I argue that when Spinoza describes substance and its attributes as he means that they are utterly indeterminate. That is, his conception of infinitude is not a mathematical one. For Spinoza, anything truly infinite eludes counting s conception is closer to a grammatical one. I conclude by considering a number of arguments against this account of the Spinozan infinite as indeterminate.

    Shannon Dea (2009). Heidegger and Galileo’s Slippery Slope. Dialogue: Canadian Philosophical Review 48 (1):59-76.
    ABSTRACT: In Die Frage nach dem Ding , Martin Heidegger characterizes Galileo as an important transitional figure in the struggle to replace the Aristotelian conception of nature with that of Newton. However, Heidegger only attends to Galileo’s modernity and not to those Aristotelian elements still discernible in Galileo’s work. This article fleshes out both aspects in Galileo in light of Heidegger’s discussion. It concludes by arguing that the lacuna in Heidegger’s account of Galileo is the consequence of Heidegger’s own self-conscious (...)

    Shannon Dea (2015). A House at War Against Itself: Absolute Versus Pluralistic Idealism in Spinoza, Peirce, James and Royce. British Journal for the History of Philosophy 23 (4):710-731.
    In this paper, I elaborate affinities between Peirce, Spinoza and Royce, in order to illuminate the division between Peirce's and James's expressions of idealism. James contrasted Spinoza's and Royce's absolute idealism with his and Peirce's pluralistic idealism. I triangulate among Peirce, Spinoza and Royce to show that, contra James's view, Peirce himself was more at home in the absolutistic camp. In Section 2, I survey Peirce's discussions of Spinoza's pragmatism and of the divide within pragmatism Peirce perceived to obtain. In (...)

    Shannon Dea (2008). Firstness, Evolution and the Absolute in Peirce's Spinoza. Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 44 (4):pp. 603-628.
    Inspired by Peirce’s repeated claim in the final decade of his life that Spinoza was a pragmati(ci)st, this article examines whether or not Peirce also believed that Spinoza’s metaphysics leaves room for Firstness. He engaged this issue explicitly in his third “Lecture on Pragmatism” (1903), listing Spinoza’s among the metaphysics that include Firstness, Secondness and Thirdness. Moreover, over a decade earlier, in the context of his exploration of hyperbolic geometry and the evolutionary cosmology that he regarded as corresponding to it, (...)

    Shannon Dea (2006). "Merely a Veil Over the Living Thought": Mathematics and Logic in Peirce's Forgotten Spinoza Review. Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 42 (4):501-517.
    This paper considers Peirce's striking remarks about mathematics in a little-known review of Spinoza's Ethics within the larger context of his philosophy of mathematics. It argues that, for Peirce, true mathematical reasoning is always at the vanguard of thought, and resists logical demonstration. Through diagrammatic thought and her pre-theoretical innate faculty of logica utens, the great mathematician is able to see a theorem as true long before the logical apparatus necessary to demonstrate its truth exists. For Peirce, true mathematical thought (...)

  16. Shannon Dea (2016). Beyond the Binary: Thinking About Sex and Gender. Broadview Press.
    How many sexes are there? What is the relationship between sex and gender? Is gender a product of nature, or nurture, or both? In _Beyond the Binary_, Shannon Dea addresses these questions and others while introducing readers to evidence and theoretical perspectives from a range of cultures and disciplines, and from sources spanning three millennia. Dea’s pluralistic and historically informed approach offers readers a timely background to current debates about sex and gender in the media, health sciences, and public policy.

    In their 2005 paper, “Why Pragmatists Cannot be Pluralists,” Robert Talisse and Scott Aikin draw a distinction between meaning pragmatists and inquiry pragmatists. For meaning pragmatists, the main focus of the pragmatic method is the elucidation of the meanings of concepts and propositions. Talisse and Aikin list among meaning pragmatists such figures as James, the Peirce of “How to Make Our Ideas Clear,” Quine, and Rorty. For inquiry pragmatists, by contrast, the method of pragmatism is primarily a method to guide (...)
