    Levinas: An Introduction.Colin Davis - 1996 - University of Notre Dame Press.
    In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in the work of Emmanuel Levinas, widely recognized as one of the most important yet difficult philosophers of the 20th century. In this much-needed introduction, Davis unpacks the concepts at the centre of Levinas's thought - alterity, the Other, the Face, infinity - concepts which have previously presented readers with major problems of interpretation. Davis traces the development of Levinas's thought over six decades, describing the context in which he worked, (...)

    Towards a Universal Model of Reading.Ram Frost, Christina Behme, Madeleine El Beveridge, Thomas H. Bak, Jeffrey S. Bowers, Max Coltheart, Stephen Crain, Colin J. Davis, S. Hélène Deacon & Laurie Beth Feldman - 2012 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (5):263.
    In the last decade, reading research has seen a paradigmatic shift. A new wave of computational models of orthographic processing that offer various forms of noisy position or context-sensitive coding have revolutionized the field of visual word recognition. The influx of such models stems mainly from consistent findings, coming mostly from European languages, regarding an apparent insensitivity of skilled readers to letter order. Underlying the current revolution is the theoretical assumption that the insensitivity of readers to letter order reflects the (...)

    Developing a Universal Model of Reading Necessitates Cracking the Orthographic Code.Colin J. Davis - 2012 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (5):283-284.
    I argue, contra Frost, that when prime lexicality and target density are considered, it is not clear that there are fundamental differences between form priming effects in Semitic and European languages. Furthermore, identifying and naming printed words in these languages raises common theoretical problems. Solving these problems and developing a universal model of reading necessitates the orthographic input code.

    Can the reality of complex moral situations be represented by means other than those of imaginative literature?If we could readily agree with Martha Nussbaum that "certain novels are, irreplaceably, works of moral philosophy" (148), then we might already have an answer to the question of whether or not literature matters. It would matter to us to the exact extent that it might help to make our lives richer, better and fuller. Nussbaum, though, refers only to "certain novels" and not to (...)

    The Angelic Crime.Colin Davis - 2009 - The Philosophers' Magazine 47 (47):85-90.
    Something is happening which tears morality from its secure mooring and projects us into uncharted territory. All rules are suspended. We are reminded that no examining magistrate is present; this has now escalated to become a greater metaphysical absence, as the film develops its earlier reference to the murder of God. If God is dead, if God has willed and commanded his own death, what moral nightmare awaits us?

    Levinas and the Phenomenology of Reading.Colin Davis - 2006 - Studia Phaenomenologica 6:275-292.
    Although Levinas showed relatively little interest in secular literature, and indeed he was sometimes distinctly hostile towards it, some of his essays sketch a phenomenological account of the reading experience which is applicable to non-sacred texts. This article compares Levinas’s phenomenology of reading to that of Wolfgang Iser, and argues that it may be susceptible to some of the same criticisms. It then examines Levinas’s 1947 essay “L’Autre dans Proust” in the light of Proust’s Un amour de Swann, suggesting that (...)

    Levinas, Nosferatu, and the Love as Strong as Death.Colin Davis - 2007 - Film-Philosophy 11 (2):37-48.
    Love is not stronger than death. In Death and Time Levinasreminds us that, contrary to how it is often quoted or remembered, The Song of Solomonsays that love is as strong as death not stronger than it . Love doesnot conquer death, it does not give to loss a sense which makes it bearable. And yetLevinas goes on to describe the claim that love is stronger than death as a ‘privilegedformula’ , suggesting that even if it is nottrue it is (...)

    Sartre and the Return of the Living Dead.Colin Davis - 2005 - Sartre Studies International 11 (s 1-2):222-233.
    The dead will remain with us, Sartre remarks at the end of Les Mots, for as long as humanity roams the earth. The dead are never quite dead; they survive in what Sartre, in L'Etre et le néant, calls 'la vie morte' (dead life). In Huis clos, Sartre envisages an afterlife in which, although they can no longer act, the dead continue to agonize over the meaning of their lives and their now irrevocable actions. Sartre's script of Les Jeux sont (...)

    More Varieties of Bayesian Theories, but No Enlightenment.Jeffrey S. Bowers & Colin J. Davis - 2011 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (4):193-194.
    We argue that Bayesian models are best categorized as methodological or theoretical. That is, models are used as tools to constrain theories, with no commitment to the processes that mediate cognition, or models are intended to approximate the underlying algorithmic solutions. We argue that both approaches are flawed, and that the Enlightened Bayesian approach is unlikely to help.

    Levinas at 100.Colin Davis - 2006 - Paragraph 29 (3):95-104.
    A century after his birth, Emmanuel Levinas is now widely read and established as one of the major thinkers of recent times. The Cambridge Companion to Levinas, edited by Simon Critchley and Robert Bernasconi, gives an informed introduction to the current state of research into his thought. However, despite the widespread acceptance of Levinas's views, some controversial aspects of his work are simplified or avoided. Moreover, telling criticisms have been levelled against him from political and philosophical perspectives. The article suggests (...)
