    Sniffing the Camembert: On the Conceivability of Zombies.Allin Cottrell - 1999 - Journal of Consciousness Studies 6 (1):4-12.
    The ‘real’ issue concerns the status of qualia, that is, the subjective sensory states into which we are thrown when looking at a yellow leaf, hearing a musical chord, sniffing a camembert, or running our fingers over a piece of sandpaper. Is it possible to provide a satisfactory account of such states using only the resources of a materialist functionalism? Or is it the case -- as it has seemed to many, and as it seems to David Chalmers -- that (...)

    Intentionality and Economics.Allin Cottrell - 1995 - Economics and Philosophy 11 (1):159.
    In his recent book, Economics – Mathematical Politics or Science of Diminishing Returns, Alexander Rosenberg has offered a forceful critique of the scientific pretensions of economics. I am encouraged to note that in his JEL review, Wade Hands singles out Rosenberg's ‘important discussion of intentionality’ as one of the most significant aspects of the book. Encouraged, because this was exactly my impression, and Hands's judgment confirmed my intention to respond to Rosenberg's argument. I hope, however, to be able to disappoint (...)

    Tertium Datur? Reflections on Owen Flanagan's Consciousness Reconsidered.Allin Cottrell - 1995 - Philosophical Psychology 8 (1):85-103.
    Owen Flanagan's arguments concerning qualia constitute an intermediate position between Dennett's “disqualification” of qualia and the thesis that qualia represent an insurmountable obstacle to constructive naturalism. This middle ground is potentially attractive, but it is shown to have serious problems. This is brought out via consideration of several classic areas of dispute connected with qualia, including the inverted spectrum, Frank Jackson's thought experiment, Hindsight, and epiphenomenalism. An attempt is made to formulate the basis for a less vulnerable variant on the (...)

    Keynes's Theory of Probability and Its Relevance to His Economics: Three Theses: Allin Cottrell.Allin Cottrell - 1993 - Economics and Philosophy 9 (1):25-51.
    One calls a lot of things propositions. If one sees this, then one can discard the idea Russell and Frege had that logic is a science of certain objects – propositions, functions, the logical constants – and that logic is like a natural science such as zoology and talks about these objects as zoology talks of animals. Like a natural science, it could supposedly discover certain relations. For example, Keynes claimed to discover a probability relation which was like implication, yet (...)

    Value, Markets and Socialism.W. Paul Cockshott & Allin F. Cottrell - 1997 - Science and Society 61 (3):330 - 357.
    The labor theory of value provides both a moral and a conceptual foundation for an equitable and efficient socialism. Given modern information technology, a system of planning can work. Markets in consumer goods are required, but not markets for the means of production. We advocate a system of payment in labor-tokens, and argue for its superiority over the wages system in terms of both equity and economic efficiency.

    The Relation Between Economic and Political Instances in the Communist Mode of Production.Paul Cockshott, Allin Cottrell, Pat Devine & David Laibman - 2002 - Science and Society 66 (1):50 - 71.
  10. Classical Econophysics.Allin F. Cottrell, Paul Cockshott, Gregory John Michaelson, Ian P. Wright & Victor Yakovenko - 2009 - Routledge.
    This monograph examines the domain of classical political economy using the methodologies developed in recent years both by the new discipline of econo-physics and by computing science. This approach is used to re-examine the classical subdivisions of political economy: production, exchange, distribution and finance. The book begins by examining the most basic feature of economic life – production – and asks what it is about physical laws that allows production to take place. How is it that human labour is able (...)

  12. New Perspectives on Keynes.Allin F. Cottrell & Michael S. Lawlor (eds.) - 1996 - Duke University Press.
    Interest in John Maynard Keynes has increased significantly over the past decade with the publication of his collected writings, increased access to his unpublished papers, and the resulting explosion of secondary literature. Responding to this renewed attention, this collection brings together economists and historians of economics with scholars from philosophy and other related fields to reconsider Keynes’s work and its legacy. Several of these essays look at Keynes not simply as an economist, but more broadly as a philosopher. Special attention (...)

    Word Processors: Stupid and Inefficient.Allin Cottrell - unknown
    The word processor is a stupid and grossly inefficient tool for preparing text for communication with others. That is the claim I shall defend below. It will probably strike you as bizarre at first sight. If I am against word processors, what do I propose: that we write in longhand, or use a mechanical typewriter? No. While there are things to be said in favor of these modes of text preparation I take it for granted that most readers of this (...)
