  1. Empathy with Inanimate Objects and the Uncanny Valley.Catrin Misselhorn - 2009 - Minds and Machines 19 (3):345-359.
    The term “uncanny valley” goes back to an article of the Japanese roboticist Masahiro Mori. He put forward the hypothesis that humanlike objects like certain kinds of robots elicit emotional responses similar to real humans proportionate to their degree of human likeness. Yet, if a certain degree of similarity is reached emotional responses become all of a sudden very repulsive. The corresponding recess in the supposed function is called the uncanny valley. The present paper wants to propose a philosophical explanation (...)

    Collective Agency and Cooperation in Natural and Artificial Systems.Catrin Misselhorn - 1st ed. 2015 - In Collective Agency and Cooperation in Natural and Artificial Systems. Springer Verlag.
    Novel varieties of interplay between humans, robots and software agents are on the rise. Computer-based artefacts are no longer mere tools but have become interaction partners. Distributed problem solving and social agency may be modelled by social computing systems based on multi-agent systems. MAS and agent-based modelling approaches focus on the simulation of complex interactions and relationships of human and/or non-human agents. MAS may be deployed both in virtual environments and cyber-physical systems. With regard to their impact on the physical (...)

  3. Ethical Considerations Regarding the Use of Social Robots in the Fourth Age.Catrin Misselhorn, Ulrike Pompe & Mog Stapleton - 2013 - Geropsych 26 (2):121-133.
    The debate about the use of robots in the care of older adults has often been dominated by either overly optimistic visions (coming particularly from Japan), in which robots are seamlessly incorporated into society thereby enhancing quality of life for everyone; or by extremely pessimistic scenarios that paint such a future as horrifying. We reject this dichotomy and argue for a more differentiated ethical evaluation of the possibilities and risks involved with the use of social robots. In a critical discussion (...)

    Autonomous Driving and Perverse Incentives.Wulf Loh & Catrin Misselhorn - forthcoming - Philosophy and Technology:1-16.
    This paper discusses the ethical implications of perverse incentives with regard to autonomous driving. We define perverse incentives as a feature of an action, technology, or social policy that invites behavior which negates the primary goal of the actors initiating the action, introducing a certain technology, or implementing a social policy. As a special form of means-end-irrationality, perverse incentives are to be avoided from a prudential standpoint, as they prove to be directly self-defeating: They are not just a form of (...)

    Probleme der analytischen Ästhetik : Thematischer Überblick und ausgewählte Fragestellungen.Catrin Misselhorn - 2008 - Zeitschrift für Philosophische Forschung 62 (1):108-129.
    Im ersten Teil dieses Artikels stand die begriffliche und methodologische Annäherung an die analytische Ästhetik sowie ihre Situierung im Kontext der analytischen Philosophie im Vordergrund. Der zweite Teil soll der Vermessung ihres Forschungsgebiets dienen, wobei auch immer wieder Bezüge zu anderen philosophischen Disziplinen wie der Philosophie des Geistes oder der -Ethik hergestellt werden.

    Musil's Metaphilosophical View.Catrin Misselhorn - 2014 - The Monist 97 (1):104-121.
    This paper is aboutMusil’s view of the relation between science, literature, and philosophy. It situatesMusil’s position in metaphilosophical space in between the traditional conception of philosophy, philosophical naturalism and the view that philosophy is a kind of literary genre.Musil defends a unique combination of philosophical naturalism and philosophy as literature which is superior to more standard versions of these views. He uses a sophisticated joint literary and scientific strategy of argument to support this view which is carefully reconstructed.

    How Models Fail. A Critical Look at the History of Computer Simulations of the Evolution of Cooperation.Catrin Misselhorn (ed.) - 2015 - Springer.
    Simulation models of the Reiterated Prisoner's Dilemma have been popular for studying the evolution of cooperation since more than 30 years now. However, there have been practically no successful instances of empirical application of any of these models. At the same time this lack of empirical testing and confirmation has almost entirely been ignored by the modelers community. In this paper, I examine some of the typical narratives and standard arguments with which these models are justified by their authors despite (...)

    Rational Probabilistic Incoherence? A Reply to Michael Caie.Catrin Campbell-Moore - 2015 - Philosophical Review 124 (3):393-406.
    In Michael Caie's article “Rational Probabilistic Incoherence,” Caie argues that in light of certain situations involving self-reference, it is sometimes rational to have probabilistically incoherent credences. This essay further considers his arguments. It shows that probabilism isn't to blame for the failure of rational introspection and that Caie's modified accuracy criterion conflicts with Dutch book considerations, is scoring rule dependent, and leads to the failure of rational introspection.

    How to Express Self-Referential Probability. A Kripkean Proposal.Catrin Campbell-Moore - 2015 - Review of Symbolic Logic 8 (4):680-704.
    We present a semantics for a language that includes sentences that can talk about their own probabilities. This semantics applies a fixed point construction to possible world style structures. One feature of the construction is that some sentences only have their probability given as a range of values. We develop a corresponding axiomatic theory and show by a canonical model construction that it is complete in the presence of the ω-rule. By considering this semantics we argue that principles such as (...)

    Probability for the Revision Theory of Truth.Catrin Campbell-Moore, Leon Horsten & Hannes Leitgeb - forthcoming - Journal of Philosophical Logic:1-26.
    We investigate how to assign probabilities to sentences that contain a type-free truth predicate. These probability values track how often a sentence is satisfied in transfinite revision sequences, following Gupta and Belnap’s revision theory of truth. This answers an open problem by Leitgeb which asks how one might describe transfinite stages of the revision sequence using such probability functions. We offer a general construction, and explore additional constraints that lead to desirable properties of the resulting probability function. One such property (...)

    Limits in the Revision Theory:More Than Just Definite Verdicts.Catrin J. Campbell-Moore - forthcoming - Journal of Philosophical Logic:1-25.
    We present a new proposal for what to do at limits in the revision theory. The usual criterion for a limit stage is that it should agree with any definite verdicts that have been brought about before that stage. We suggest that one should not only consider definite verdicts that have been brought about but also more general properties; in fact any closed property can be considered. This more general framework is required if we move to considering revision theories for (...)

    Self-Referential Probability.Catrin Campbell-Moore - 2016 - Dissertation, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
    This thesis focuses on expressively rich languages that can formalise talk about probability. These languages have sentences that say something about probabilities of probabilities, but also sentences that say something about the probability of themselves. For example: (π): “The probability of the sentence labelled π is not greater than 1/2.” Such sentences lead to philosophical and technical challenges; but can be useful. For example they bear a close connection to situations where ones confidence in something can affect whether it is (...)
