    It Doesn't Take an Avatar.Andrew Terjesen - 2014 - In George A. Dunn (ed.), Avatar and Philosophy. Chichester, UK: Wiley. pp. 62–73.
    The idea that Jake could understand the Na'vi by driving his avatar for a few months is as absurd as thinking that Bill Gates could understand what it means to be poor if he chose to live below the poverty line for a few months. Selfridge and Quaritch show that it's possible to achieve cognitive empathy for the Na'vi without being an avatar driver.

    Is Superman an American Icon?Andrew Terjesen - 2013 - In Mark D. White (ed.), Superman and Philosophy. Oxford: Wiley. pp. 71–81.
    Even though he serves the people of Earth as Superman, Clark Kent is still the one who pays income taxes to the US government, who renews his driver's license in Metropolis, and who is (sometimes) married to Lois Lane. In giving up his American citizenship, Superman appears to be denying exceptionalism, the belief that one nation ‐ in this case, the United States ‐ is qualitatively superior in some way to other nations. Superman is inescapably an American icon in that (...)

    More than a feeling.Andrew Terjesen - 2009 - The Philosophers' Magazine 46 (46):95-98.
    A modern Stoic might say the fact that the universe has kept things going for billions of years suggests that we should pay more attention to its workings as we organise our life.

    Un-American hero.Andrew Terjesen - 2011 - The Philosophers' Magazine 55 (55):93-96.
    His renunciation of citizenship is a symbolic denial of American exceptionalism, but it is not an abandonment of America or the values that it – but not it alone – represents and promotes.
