    Conditionals, Probabilities, and Utilities: More on Two Envelopes.B. D. Katz & D. Olin - 2010 - Mind 119 (473):171-183.
    Sutton ( 2010 ) claims that on our analysis (2007), the problem in the two-envelope paradox is an error in counterfactual reasoning. In fact, we distinguish two formulations of the paradox, only one of which, on our account, involves an error in conditional reasoning. According to Sutton, it is conditional probabilities rather than subjunctive conditionals that are essential to the problem. We argue, however, that his strategy for assigning utilities on the basis of conditional probabilities leads to absurdity. In addition, (...)

    Private Sociology: Unsparing Reflections, Uncommon Gains.Isaac D. Balbus, Sarah Brabant, William B. Brown, Kristine Anderson Dougherty, Don Eckard, Carolyn Ellis, David O. Friedrichs, Ann Goetting, Barbara A. Haley, Ross Koppel, Marianne A. Paget, Douglas V. Porpora, Larry T. Reynolds, Carol Rambo Ronai, Barbara Katz Rothman, Joseph W. Ruane, Don H. Shamblin, Z. G. Standing Bear, Robert L. Stewart, Roger A. Straus, Richard Quinney & Jan Yager (eds.) - 1996 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    Each contributor to this book has used personal experience as the basis from which to frame his individual sociological perspectives. Because they have personalized their work, their accounts are real, and recognizable as having come from 'real' persons, about 'real' experiences. There are no objectively-distanced disembodied third person entities in these accounts. These writers are actual people whose stories will make you laugh, cry, think, and want to know more.

    Approche Contemporaine d'Une Affirmation de Dieu. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (4):633-633.
    Science naively presupposes the intelligibility of the universe, necessary laws, and a universal truth. The author reflects on these presuppositions to arrive at a demonstration of God's existence. In a vigorous and exclamatory style, he condemns the alternative views of idealism, phenomenology, and philosophies of science which cannot rationally justify their faith in a universal truth. The only rational basis for these presuppositions is a theistic God--the "Vérité mesurante" and "Pensée fondatrice" of scientific reason.--A. B. D.

  14. Retelling Experiments: H. B. D. Kettlewell’s Studies of Industrial Melanism in Peppered Moths. [REVIEW]Joel B. Hagen - 1999 - Biology and Philosophy 14 (1):39-54.
    H. B. D. Kettlewell's field experiments on industrial melanism in the peppered moth, Biston betularia, have become the best known demonstration of natural selection in action. I argue that textbook accounts routinely portray this research as an example of controlled experimentation, even though this is historically misleading. I examine how idealized accounts of Kettlewell's research have been used by professional biologists and biology teachers. I also respond to some criticisms of David Rudge to my earlier discussions of this case study, (...)

    Merleau-Ponty had projected a work of considerable dimensions, according to Lefort, which was to have borne the title now given to this posthumous volume. Though the chapters he had actually written out and the notes de travail selected by Lefort for this edition seem to be only introductory parts and suggestions of the larger work, they are already considerable in richness, depth and difficulty. Here we find Merleau-Ponty returning to the problems of his earlier works, showing why the problems posed (...)

    Competing Against the Unknown: The Impact of Enabling and Constraining Institutions on the Informal Economy.B. D. Mathias, Sean Lux, T. Russell Crook, Chad Autry & Russell Zaretzki - 2015 - Journal of Business Ethics 127 (2):251-264.
    In addition to facing the known competitors in the formal economy, entrepreneurs must also be concerned with rivalry emanating from the informal economy. The informal economy is characterized by actions outside the normal scope of commerce, such as unsanctioned payments and gift-giving, as means of influencing competition. Scholars and policy makers alike have an interest in mitigating the impacts of such informal activity in that it might present an obstacle for legitimate commerce. Received theory suggests that country institutions can enable (...)

    H.B.D. Kettlewell's Research 1937-1953: The Influence of E.B. Ford, E.A. Cockayne and P.M. Sheppard.David Wÿss Rudge - 2006 - History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 28 (3):359 - 387.
    H.B.D. Kettlewell is best known for his pioneering work on the phenomenon of industrial melanism, which began shortly after his appointment in 1951 as a Nuffield Foundation research worker in E.B. Ford's newly formed sub-department of genetics at the University of Oxford. In the years since, a legend has formed around these investigations, one that portrays them as a success story of the 'Oxford School of Ecological Genetics', emphasizes Ford's intellectual contribution, and minimizes reference to assistance provided by others.

    The Existential Background of Human Dignity. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (3):479-479.
    In these William James lectures, Marcel traces the relationship between events in his life and his philosophical and literary works. Drawing largely on his dramatic works, he interprets and clarifies some of his key philosophical themes, such as "intersubjectivity," "participation" and "the mystery of Being."--A. B. D.

Ingarden undertakes an eidetic analysis of various concepts of existence and deals with such problems as causality and the differences between (...)

    Socratic Humanism. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (4):636-636.
    The author guarantees the partial truth of Socrates' reputation as a sophist by presenting the ideas of Protagoras, Gorgias and others, measuring Socrates' agreement with them, and specifying how he went beyond their relativistic humanism. All the themes in the Socratic dialogues are actually one theme: What is man? Versényi shows that the answers to this question were given as much in Socrates' life as in his teachings. Indeed, Socrates is aptly described as a Heideggerian hero whose death was an (...)

    Theory of Man. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (1):158-158.
    This is a systematic and admirably clear exposition of a philosophical anthropology by the dean of Latin-American philosophers—it is nothing less than philosophy in the grand manner. Romero begins with a novel theory of intentionality. Intentional consciousness differentiates man from the lower animals. For this consciousness is originally an objectifying and cognitive awareness. From man's intentional consciousness Romero then traces the constitution of the self, a community, and spiritual consciousness. Basically, man is a duality of his intentional, aggressive consciousness and (...)

    The Philosophy of Epicurus. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1963 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (2):310-310.
    It is good to have this newly translated collection of Epicurus' writings with parallel passages from Lucretius. In his overly long introductory essay on ancient materialism, Strodach harshly criticizes Epicurus' doctrine of the chance swerve of atoms and corrects a wide-spread impression that Epicurus was a profligate libertine. Unfortunately, parts of the introduction are repeated in the commentator's text which is confusedly intertwined with passages from Lucretius.--A. B. D.

    The Poetics of Space. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (4):771-772.
    This book is primarily for the patient and empathetic poetaster; it is a treasure-chest of themes on the imagination, metaphor, day-dream, and memory. Bachelard presents a phenomenology of the poetic image of inner or inhabited space, or what he terms "felicitous space." Inner space refers not only to the house of man but to the houses of things, drawers, chests, and wardrobes, and to the houses of animals, nests and shells. Bachelard's method is to articulate the many reverberations which any (...)

    Heidegger's Philosophy. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (2):382-382.
    This is really only a detailed exposition of Division I of Being and Time and a summary of the problem of Division II. There are references to Heidegger's later works and to Husserl, but no critical comparison is made. In its clarity and no-nonsense English, it is handy for a first reader of Being and Time.—A. B. D.

    Aristotle and the Problem of Value. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (3):589-589.
    Aristotle's rejection of the Platonic ideas robbed him of Plato's unity of Being and Value as well. By an extensive, clear interpretation and analysis of the whole Aristotelian corpus, Oates shows that Aristotle lacks a coherent theory of value. While considerations of value unavoidably occur in the Metaphysics, just as ontological ones do in the Ethics, nowhere in Aristotle is there a unification of axiology and ontology. For this reason, Oates argues, the Nicomachean Ethics fails to be a theory of (...)

    On the Problem of Empathy. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (1):185-185.
    Edith Stein was Husserl's student and private secretary. This study of empathy was originally her doctoral dissertation. After a reduction to pure consciousness, she describes the essence of empathy as a kind of perception sui generis, both like and unlike other acts of consciousness. Different theories of experiencing the other are briefly evaluated. The second part of the book is devoted to the role of empathy in the constitution of the psycho-physical individual and, ultimately, of the person. Written in short, (...)

    Etre Et Liberté, Une Étude Sur le Dernier Heidegger. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (4):775-775.
    A far less exhaustive work than Richardson's scholarly tome, but more focused than Vycinas' ventriloquial interpretation, Guilead's book concentrates on the theme of freedom in Sein und Zeit and in Heidegger's later works. The author is in full control of Heidegger's terminology and he succinctly reports how Heidegger uncovers and destroys the subjectivism of modern philosophy, as represented by Descartes, Leibniz, Kant, Nietzsche, and Marx. Guilead contends that the germ of the "Kehre" was already present in Sein und Seit [[sic]]. (...)

    In the French unclassifiable genre, Brun explores biological evolution, poetry, philosophy, mythology, dance movements and palm-reading to unearth the significance and function of the human hand. Man does not have a hand; part of his being is being-a-hand. He is differentiated from animals not only because he is a tool-user, but because he can make tools to make other tools. Brun shows that the sense of touch overcomes the separation between man and the world in a second section dealing with (...)

    Language and Philosophy. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1963 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (2):302-303.
    Based on the Mahlon Powell lectures given at Indiana University, this slim, well translated book is surprisingly rich and visionary in its pursuit of a metaphysics of language. Dufrenne, a phenomenologist, argues that positivistic and syntactical linguistics wrongly ignore the phenomenon of living speech, while formal logic, seeking to rid itself of its natural and intuitive origins, is necessarily rooted in them. What is needed is a phenomenology of human speech which would lead to a metaphysics of man's spoken intercourse (...)

    Le Dialogue Psychoanalytique. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (3):472-473.
    Daniel Lagache has said that the psychoanalytical experience is a moral one. It is, in Mme. Amado's words, "the drama of a subject, discovering his radical truth." The task of psychoanalysis is the demystification of the narcissistic, alienated subject who lives in a primary or primitive moment of subjectivity. The moment of cure is the recognition of the other, and simultaneously, a discovery of oneself--intersubjectivity. Mme. Amado gives an excellent phenomenology of alienation, seeing its presence both in mental disorders and (...)

    Pueblo Gods and Myths. [REVIEW]B. D. A. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (1):159-159.
    Not an anthropologist by training, Tyler succeeds where the trained anthropologist has often failed: he manages to understand a style of life not his own. He relates and interprets the stories of the gods of the Zunis, Keres, and Hopi Indians, comparing them to some of the Greek myths. The Pueblos are "realists"; they believe in a world of rough harmony, of "normalcy," and their animistic religion is devoted to preserving the natural order of things. Their sophisticated outlook cannot be (...)

    For at least the past 15 years, food safety stakeholders across all levels of government have recognized the critical role that state and local agencies play in our nation's food safety system. State and local agencies are the first responders to foodborne outbreaks and have primary responsibility for keeping their residents safe from foodborne disease through effective surveillance and rapid response to outbreaks. They also conduct the vast majority of food safety inspections across the nation's restaurants, grocery stores, and other (...)

    This is a compact, comparative analysis of Western and Chinese thought according to distinctive styles of thought and attitudes toward the world and what can be known of it. The model of Western Philosophy is presented as an abstract whole beyond experience—the Kantian ideal; the model of Chinese thought is a concrete whole found in experience. Chinese thought, as amply represented by passages from Confucius, Mencius and others, always has a feeling for the concrete, for a particular fact intuitively suggesting (...)

Benardete traces the development of mathematics through Aristotle, Leibniz, Gauss, Cantor, and Brouwer, and he examines recent developments in hyper-mathematics. Siding with Cantor, he argues that mathematics is no longer a formal discipline. It is teleological and it (...)
