    The Logical Impossibility of Collision: A. David Kline and Carl A. Matheson.A. David Kline - 1987 - Philosophy 62 (242):509-515.
    Absolutely no one still believes that every physical interactionconsists of material bodies bumping into each other. Those who have tried to work out a completely mechanistic physics have been unable to explain common phenomena like liquidity, gravitation and magnetism. In fact, there is great reason to doubt that such a physics could ever account for attractive forces in general.

  4. How the Laws of Physics Don't Even Fib.A. David Kline & Carl A. Matheson - 1986 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1986:33-41.
    The most recent challenge to the covering-law model of explanation charges that the fundamental explanatory laws are not true. In fact explanation and truth are alleged to pull in different directions. We hold that this gets its force from confusing issues about the truth of the laws in the explanation and the precision with which those laws can yield an exact description of the event to be explained. In defending this we look at Cartwright's major case studies and sketch an (...)

    Are There Cases of Simultaneous Causation?A. David Kline - 1980 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1980 (Volume One: Contributed Papers):292 - 301.
    Alleged cases of simultaneous causation have played a prominent role in the critique of various accounts of explanation/causation and in the formation of alternative accounts. It is argued that none of the stated cases are genuine instances of simultaneous causations, since they all violate the special theory of relativity (STR). The conditions a genuine case would have to meet in light of the restrictions imposed by STR are outlined.

    George Berkeley: Philosophy of Science.A. David Kline - 2022 - Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    George Berkeley: Philosophy of Science George Berkeley announces at the very outset of Three Dialogues Between Hylas and Philonous that the goals of his philosophical system are to demonstrate the reality of genuine knowledge, the incorporeal nature of the soul, and the ever-present guidance and care of God for us. He will do this in … Continue reading George Berkeley: Philosophy of Science →.

    The Quinean ‘Pressing From Above’ Argument.A. David Kline - 1979 - Philosophy Research Archives 5:647-659.
    I show that what Quine calls 'pressing from above' is an argument for indeterminacy of translation that is generated by assuming the partial interpretation view of scientific theories. Furthermore, I argue that Quine's thesis should be understood as a reductio ad absurdum of partial interpretation and/or the view that the meaning of a term determines a unique extension for the term.

    We Should Allow Dissection of Animals.A. David Kline - 1995 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 8 (2):190-197.
    The focus of the paper is the ethical issues associated with the practice of dissecting animals in lower level college biology classes. Several arguments against dissection are explored. Furthermore, the issue is examined from the point of view of the instructor's academic freedom and the point of view of a student's moral autonomy. It is argued that even though the arguments against dissection fail, it is very important to respect the moral autonomy of students who oppose the practice. Often this (...)

    The "Established Maxim" and Causal Chains.A. David Kline - 1982 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1982:65 - 74.
    There is a widely accepted ancient principle which holds that effects must occur as soon as possible after their causes. This paper takes this principle seriously and shows that if one believes there are causal chains then one is forced to accept the view that the temporal order is discrete or that some causally related events form a dense sequence.

    On the Intertheoretic Competition Hypothesis.A. David Kline - 1988 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1988:33 - 40.
    The intertheoretic competition hypothesis (the rejection of a theory not only requires the comparison of the theory with nature but also the acceptance of an alternative theory) is a dogma of contemporary philosophy of science. I first attempt to reconstruct Thomas Kuhn's argument for the view. A central exegetical claim is that his argument rests on the Duhemian Thesis. I then show that the argument is inconclusive and suggest that there are vivid historical counterexamples to the competition hypothesis.
