    The Ad Hoc Collective Work of Building Gothic Cathedrals with Templates, String, and Geometry.David Turnbull - 1993 - Science, Technology and Human Values 18 (3):315-340.
    Gothic cathedrals like Chartres were built in a discontinuous process by groups of masons using their own local knowledge, measures, and techniques. They had neither plans nor knowledge of structural mechanics. The success of the masons in building such large complex innovative structures lies in the use of templates, string, constructive geometry, and social organization to assemble a coherent whole from the messy heterogeneous practices of diverse groups of workers. Chartres resulted from the ad hoc accumulation of the work of (...)

    Multiplicity, Criticism and Knowing What to Do Next: Way‐Finding in a Transmodern World. Response to Meera Nanda’sProphets Facing Backwards.David Turnbull - 2005 - Social Epistemology 19 (1):19 – 32.
    The paper addresses the question of whether, as Nanda claims, treating all knowledge traditions including science as local, denies the possibility of criticism. It accepts the necessity for criticism but denies that science can be the sole arbiter of truth and argues that we have to live with holding differing knowledges in tension with one another.

    Reflections on Genetic Manipulation and Duties to Posterity: An Engagement with Skene and Coady.David Turnbull - 2002 - Monash Bioethics Review 21 (4):10-31.
    In addressing the regulation of human genetic futures, scientific standards concerning human kinds are endorsed by philosophical approaches that tend to exclude many people with genetic conditions from the deliberative process. In broadening the axiological, ontological and epistemological framework to include disability perspectives, the focus is shifted from questions of regulation to practical matters of participation, invoking ideals of community equality and enabled choice. In developing practical community engagements to deliberate upon genetic futures, a process that allows dialectical encounter between (...)

  18. Clarity, Charity and Criticism, Wit, Wisdom and Worldliness; Avoiding Intellectual Impositions.David Turnbull - manuscript
    Intellectual Impostures seemed at first to create something of dilemma for me. My position was obviously an example of the kind that Sokal and Bricmont's set out to critique, but I found myself entertaining a variety of responses, why be so nasty, so sneering, why overstate the case, why attribute failings of individual's arguments to all of some supposedly homogeneous group be they constructivists, sociologists of science postmodernists or whatever? Why be so earnestly tendentious? Yet, did I not agree with (...)

    Performance and Narrative, Bodies and Movement in the Construction of Places and Objects, Spaces and Knowledges.David Turnbull - 2002 - Theory, Culture and Society 19 (5-6):125-143.
    The article explores the ways knowledge and space are co-produced performatively through bodily movement in an examination of the Maltese megaliths the first complex stone structures in the world. It is argued that knowledge is best seen as spatialized narratives of human actions and objects as materialized forms of those spatial narratives. Rewriting our social and historical narratives so that the performativity of place, space and knowledge is restored opens new possibilities for rethinking the social and material order.
