    Access to Artificial Intelligence for Persons with Disabilities: Legal and Ethical Questions Concerning the Application of Trustworthy AI.Kristi Joamets & Archil Chochia - 2021 - Acta Baltica Historiae Et Philosophiae Scientiarum 9 (1):51-66.
    Digitalisation and emerging technologies affect our lives and are increasingly present in a growing number of fields. Ethical implications of the digitalisation process have therefore long been discussed by the scholars. The rapid development of artificial intelligence has taken the legal and ethical discussion to another level. There is no doubt that AI can have a positive impact on the society. The focus here, however, is on its more negative impact. This article will specifically consider how the law and ethics (...)

    The Song of the Science Mermaid: A Philosophical Trilogue on the Osteological Paradox.Alessandra Morrone & Lisa Zorzato - 2021 - Acta Baltica Historiae Et Philosophiae Scientiarum 9 (1):27-50.
    As a modern academic Ulysses, the historical scientist is enticed by numerous plausible scientific theories that can explain the historical data in search of the truth. However, the predicament of her work is to inevitably crash onto the rocks and cliffs of uncertainty. The problem discussed in this paper is that several scientific models can be suitable to account for the same empirical observations. The risk of falling into speculation is looming, and exceedingly dangerous in science. This is also the (...)

    The Ensemble Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics and Scientific Realism.Alexander Pechenkin - 2021 - Acta Baltica Historiae Et Philosophiae Scientiarum 9 (1):5-17.
    The article takes under consideration three versions of the ensemble interpretation of quantum mechanics and discusses the interconnection of these interpretations with the philosophy of science. To emphasize the specifics of the problem of interpretation of quantum mechanics in the USSR, the Marxist ideology is taken into account. The present paper continues the author’s previous analysis of ensemble interpretations which emerged in the USA and USSR in the first half of the 20th century. The author emphasizes that the ensemble approach (...)

    Assessment Relativism and the Truth-Predicate.Henrik Sova - 2021 - Acta Baltica Historiae Et Philosophiae Scientiarum 9 (1):18-26.
    The purpose of this paper is to argue that assessment relativism entails the assessment-sensitivity of the sentential truth-predicate, but not of the propositional truth-predicate. The central idea of assessment relativism is that a single token claim evaluated within a single world can have different truth-values when considered in different contexts of assessment. John MacFarlane in Assessment Sensitivity: Relative Truth and its Applications and also Max Kölbel in the article ‘Global relativism and self-refutation’ have argued that this position leads to relativism (...)
