  1. A Social Ontology.David Weissman - 2000 - Yale University Press.
    Moral and social philosophers often assume that humans beings are and ought to be autonomous. This tradition of individualism, or atomism, underlies many of our assumptions about ethics and law; it provides a legitimating framework for liberal democracy and free market capitalism. In this powerful book, David Weissman argues against atomistic ontologies, affirming instead that all of reality is social. Every particular is a system created by the reciprocal causal relations of its parts, he explains. Weissman formulates an original metaphysics (...)

    Descartes' ideas not only changed the course of Western philosophy but also led to or transformed the fields of metaphysics, epistemology, physics and mathematics, political theory and ethics, psychoanalysis, and literature and the arts. This book reprints Descartes' major works, _Discourse on Method_ and _Meditations_, and presents essays by leading scholars that explore his contributions in each of those fields and place his ideas in the context of his time and our own. There are chapters by David Weissman on metaphysics (...)

  6. Dispositional Properties.David Weissman - 2008 - Southern Illinois University Press.
    In_ Dispositional Properties_, David Weissman attacks a problem central to the philosophy of mind and, by implication, to the theory of being: Are there potentialities, capabilities, which dispose the mind to think in one way rather than another? The volume is arranged in the form of four arguments that converge upon a single point. First, there is an intricate discussion of the shortcomings of Hume's account of mind as ideas and impressions. Next comes a brief treatment of the arguments of (...)

    Pain Assessment and Management in the Long-Term Care Setting.David E. Weissman & Sandra Matson - 1999 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 20 (1):31-43.
    The assessment and management of pain is a significant public health problem in the United States. Long-term care facilities face unique barriers and challenges to pain management due to the large population of cognitively impaired residents, little physician contact and poor pain education for nurses and nurse assistants. In addition, common misconceptions about pain and pain treatment in the elderly along with health professional and resident fears of addiction and drug toxicity, add to the problem of pain management. The basic (...)

    On the Plurality of Worlds.David Weissman - 1987 - Review of Metaphysics 40 (3):585-588.
    This book is an explication and defense of the author's modal realism. There are possible worlds and individuals, he says, different from the possibles realized in this world of ours. The reality of the many possibilities is a hypothesis needed for explaining the representational character of our language, as when we say that there might be talking donkeys, though there are none. It is the reality of these possibles, as worlds and individuals, that Lewis defends.

    A Combinatorial Theory of Possibility.David Weissman - 1991 - Review of Metaphysics 44 (3):614-617.
    "Wherever possible," said Bertrand Russell, "substitute constructions out of known entities for inferences to unknown entities." Metaphysics in this style is the activity of formulating and applying a calculus. We are to supply a list of primitive ideas, with a specification of the rules for combining them, and a sample of complexes created by combining these simples. Every obscure idea is to be reformulated as the complex deriving from these simples. The values impelling us include economy, clarity, decidability, and fruitfulness.

    The Faces of Existence.David Weissman - 1988 - Review of Metaphysics 42 (1):163-165.
    Some of us might think that a logician turned metaphysical has lost his way. Everyone else can enjoy the persistence and rigor of this daring book. The Faces of Existence demands that we find a place, within a physicalist ontology and a realist theory of knowledge, for many of the topics which normally baffle those theories. There are chapters or sections about subjectivity, value, God, and metaphor, all within a context where there is said to be no difference within these (...)

    Platonism In the Tractatus.David Weissman - 1972 - Idealistic Studies 2 (1):51-80.
    In the Tractatus Wittgenstein espouses a theory of mind and knowledge that is like Plato’s: he exhibits the theory as he argues that propositional signs picture states of affairs. That is the conclusion for which I shall argue in this paper.

    Metaphysics After Pragmatism.David Weissman - 1989 - Review of Metaphysics 42 (3):513 - 546.
    ONE ASSUMPTION ABOUT METAPHYSICS is often shared by those who renounce it. Metaphysical theories are not true, they say, because of being neither true nor false. Opponents of one sort excoriate the theories as meaningless. Others say that truth and falsity are irrelevant to metaphysics, as they are to literature. Like novelists and playwrights, we metaphysicians are said to formulate the stories used for thinking about possible worlds, such as the imaginary ones of fiction and this actual world. Metaphysics, this (...)

    Dispositions as Geometrical-Structural Properties.David Weissman - 1978 - Review of Metaphysics 32 (2):275 - 297.
    I suggest that we may settle the question of their relatedness by way of two arguments. The first argument holds that two worlds might be identical in structure but different in their dispositions and subsequent behaviors. This argument loosens the relation of dispositional to structural properties; but, though plausible in itself, the argument has disastrous implications for the uniformity of processes within each world. The second argument supports our intuitive belief that the dependency of a thing’s dispositions upon its structure (...)

    Some Thoughts About the Requirements for Reviewing Books.David Weissman - 2010 - Metaphilosophy 41 (5):715-716.
    Abstract: The quality of peer-reviewed journals is vulnerable to the absence of declared standards for book reviews. Reviewers should agree to several simple rules before undertaking to review books and while writing them. Sensitivity to an author's aims is one requirement; familiarity with an author's previous and relevant publications is another. Critical judgment is always appropriate, but it can be set apart from an account of the ideas reviewed.

    Zone Morality.David Weissman - 2013 - Metaphilosophy 44 (5):589-603.
    Traditional moral theory usually has either of two emphases: virtuous moral character or principles for distributing duties or goods. “Zone morality” introduces a third: families and businesses are systems created by the causal reciprocities of their members. These relations embody the duties and permissions of a system's moral code. Core systems satisfy basic interests and needs; we move easily among them, hardly noticing that moral demands vary from system to system. Moral conflicts arise because of discord within or among systems (...)

    Free Speech.David Weissman - 1996 - Metaphilosophy 27 (4):339-355.
    Recognition of the harms done by free speech is a function of the social ontology presupposed. An atomist ontology implies that the harms suffered are restricted to individual people. This paper suggests an alternate ontology—one that describes systems established by the causal reciprocities of their proper parts. It proposes a consequentialist moral theory, and considers the harms suffered by these systems when speech exposes their internal, otherwise private, behaviors or features, when speech is malicious and false, and when speech is (...)

    Silent Conditions.David Weissman - 2011 - Metaphilosophy 42 (1-2):145-154.
    Abstract: Science and practical life strive to identify the generating or constraining conditions for the existence and character of whatever states of affairs concern them. Yet some conditions for phenomena within nature or for nature itself may be unidentifiable because there are no empirical data testing hypotheses about them or because relevant data are inaccessible. Three conditions external to nature are considered: God, eternal possibilities, and events priori to or consequent on the Big Bang. Empirical data confirming the existence and (...)
