    Nietzsche: A Frenzied Look.Robert John Ackermann - 1990 - Univ of Massachusetts Press.
    This study challenges the common view that Nietzsche passed through several discrete periods of thought, each based upon a different set of values, and that his work can best be understood as a collection of isolated insights. Ackermann's textual analysis shows the underlying unity of Nietzsche's thought. Ackermann, offering an introduction to Nietzsche, also covers his main texts, such as The Birth of Tragedy, Thus Spake Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil and Human, All too Human.

    Deductive scientific explanation.Robert Ackermann - 1965 - Philosophy of Science 32 (2):155-167.
    In this paper, I shall examine attempts to furnish formal models for deductive scientific explanation. All such attempts have had certain defects. The most serious of these defects is to be found in the fact that the extant models seem to be formally restrictive in ways that do not allow any obvious generalization of their conditions which will encompass the full range of all those scientific explanations which must be considered plausible candidates for translation into deductive models.

    Inductive simplicity.Robert Ackermann - 1961 - Philosophy of Science 28 (2):152-161.
    The fact that simplicity has been linked with induction by many philosophers of science, some of whom have proposed or supported criteria of “inductive simplicity,” means that the problem must be given some serious attention. I take “inductive simplicity” as a title, however, only by way of concession to these historical treatments, since it is precisely the burden of my paper to show that there is no such thing. So much for the conclusion. I shall spend the remainder of my (...)

    Allan Franklin, Right or Wrong.Robert Ackermann - 1990 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1990:451-457.
    Franklin and Pickering agree that scientists in an experimental sequence, like the one to be discussed here, choose to accept certain experiments and their results as crucial, but disagree as to whether such choice can be justified in terms of an on-line estimate of evidential reliability. This paper suggests that it is possible to define a position between Franklin 's Bayesian objectivism and Pickering's social constructivism. This position depends on considering the sequence of improvement in material technique and instrumentation as (...)

    Consensus and Dissensus in Science.Robert Ackermann - 1986 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1986:99 - 105.
    This paper couples the variation and selection analogy utilized in evolutionary epistemology with the hermeneutical insight that novel data and theoretical texts are obscure in meaning. Dissensus must be valued as a distancing mechanism of variation on the space of possible meanings while argumentation attacks the initial obscurity. The objection that evolutionary accounts can only describe practice is countered by indicating how dissensus has normative purchase wherever science is producing novel text.

    A neglected proposal concerning simplicity.Robert Ackermann - 1963 - Philosophy of Science 30 (3):228-235.
    This paper is intended to explore Jeffrey's proposal for the measurement of the simplicity of scientific laws. The first part is a sketch of Jeffreys' development of a view on simplicity, which will be followed by a discussion of what seem to be some rather crucial defects in the proposal as it stands. It will be suggested here that no plausible way of countering these defects seems available.
