    Game-Theoretical Semantics.Esa Saarinen - 1977 - The Monist 60 (3):406-418.
    In any survey of recent developments in semantics, the game-theoretic approach to the semantics of both formal and of natural languages which has been developed by Jaakko Hintikka and his associates must loom large. It is indeed well known by this time that the semantics of the usual first-order logic can be spelled out in terms of games. What is not equally generally known is that this game-theoretical semantics can be augmented so as to apply also to natural languages and (...)

    Conceptual Issues in Ecology.Esa Saarinen - 1982 - Springer Verlag.
    In this collection of essays, some of the leading ecologists and philosophers discuss the foundations of ecology and evolutionary biology. While large scale philosophical convictions and attitudes often direct the theorist's line of concrete action in data collection and in theory information, the founda tional convictions typically remain tacit, and are seldom argued for. The present collection aims to remedy this situation. It brings together scholars representing different approaches in a joint effort to explicate and analyse some of the key (...)

    Imagologies: Media Philosophy.Esa Saarinen & Mark Taylor - 1994 - Routledge. Edited by Esa Saarinen.
    _Imagologies: Media Philosophy_ is no ordinary book. Provocative, irritating and stimulating, this is a work to be engaged, questioned and pondered. As the web of telecommunications technology spreads across the globe, the site of economic development, social change, and political struggle shifts to the realm of media and communications. In this remarkable book, Mark Taylor and Esa Saarinen challenge readers to rethink politics, economics, education, religion, architecture, and even thinking itself. When the world is wired, nothing remains the same. To (...)

    Philosophy for Managers: Reflections of a Practitioner.Esa Saarinen - 2008 - Philosophy of Management 7 (Suppl 1):3-24.
    The aim of this article is to describe the significance and key challenges of philosophy for managers as perceived on the basis of a particular understanding of philosophy and my personal experience as a practitioner.The paper will be more visionary than argumentative. I recognise there are important alternative approaches but I will not engage in detailed analysis of them.2Drawing heavily on my own experience, the paper will present an outline and meta-philosophy of philosophical practices that have proven useful in actual (...)

    How to Frege a Russell-Kaplan.Esa Saarinen - 1982 - Noûs 16 (2):253-276.
    In all semantical investigations the following two principles must be kept firmly in mind. First, never to confuse metaphysical with epistemological modalities and possibilities, second, to observe that it is the latter kind of modalities and possibilities that are relevant for semantics. In this paper I shall consider some celebrated cases of so-called direct reference (referential uses of definite descriptions, indexicals, demonstratives and proper names) and argue that the generally accepted views about these turn on not appreciating the two principles. (...)

    On the logic of perception sentences.Esa Saarinen - 1983 - Synthese 54 (1):115 - 128.
    In this paper I discuss perception sentences of the following there syn- tactic types: John saw Mary John saw Mary run John saw that Mary run Our aim is to present an interpretation of Hintikka's logic of perception, extend it to case and dened the approach against the cirticism levelled against it by Jon Barwise.

    Processes, Beliefs, and Questions: Essays on Formal Semantics of Natural Language and Natural Language Processing.Stanley Peters & Esa Saarinen (eds.) - 1981 - Dordrecht, Netherland: Reidel.
    SECTION I In 1972, Donald Davison and Gilbert Hannan wrote in the introduction to the volume Semantics of Natural Language: "The success of linguistics in treating natural languages as formal ~yntactic systems has aroused the interest of a number of linguists in a parallel or related development of semantics. For the most part quite independently, many philosophers and logicians have recently been applying formal semantic methods to structures increasingly like natural languages. While differences in training, method and vocabulary tend to (...)

    In this paper I shall attempt to compare the dialogue approach originally advocated by Lorenz and Lorenzen and the game-theoretical approach of Hintikka with each other. I shall not try to present any survey of either one of the approaches and will assume that the reader is familiar with the basic ideas of these theories.The original works of Lorenzen and Lorenz have been reprinted in their while Stegmüller contains a survey (in English) of the basic ideas and results. Works in (...)

    Life-Philosophical Lecturing as a Systems-Intelligent Technology of the Self.Esa Saarinen - 2015 - Journal of Philosophical Research 40 (Supplement):263-280.
    This paper describes life-philosophical lecturing, as developed by the author, as a form of performing art and as a positive, oral and non-directive philosophical practice that revitalizes the Socratic ideal of philosophy. Life-philosophical lecturing is explicated as a systems-intelligent technology of the self.

    The Relevance of Relevant Thinking: Remarks on Carlin Romano's America the Philosophical.Esa Saarinen - 2016 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 52 (3):338.
    I remember distinctly the moment I heard “All My Loving”, the first song by the Beatles I ever heard, in 1963 when I was 10 years of age. While puzzled by the unconventional long hair of the musicians of whom I had heard rumors, the music touched me. It felt right. I got a similar feeling when I started to read Carlin Romano’s hefty book in digital format one night in Athens whilst I was attending the World Congress of Philosophy. (...)

    Information-seeking dialogues: Some of their logical properties. [REVIEW]Jaakko Hintikka & Esa Saarinen - 1979 - Studia Logica 38 (4):355 - 363.
    The dialogical games introduced in Jaakko Hintikka, Information-Seeking Dialogues: A Model, (Erkenntnis, vol. 14, 1979) are studied here to answer the question as to what the natural logic or the logic of natural language is. In a natural language certain epistemic elements are not explicitly indicated, but they determine which inference rules are valid. By means of dialogical games, the question is answered: all classical first-order rules have to be modified in the same way in which some of them are (...)
