    Strategies Against Pornography.Gerald Keaney - 2012 - Minerva (16):36-61. Free Online.
    The debate about pornography has been a debate about censorship as a way of reducing circulation. Three waves of anti-pornography thinking have reached for censorship. The First Wave invoked the Family Values familiar from religious rhetoric, the Second and Third Waves were both were motivated by feminist considerations. All thought they could justify the imposition of censorship. But even if such an imposition could be justified, should we want censorship anyway? I argue that censorship does not reduce the circulation of (...)

    The Identity of Indiscernibles as a Logical Truth.Gerald Keaney - 2007 - Crossroads 1 (2):28-36 Free Online.
    The Identity of Indiscernibles seems like a good enough way to define identity. Roughly it simply says that if x and y have all and only the same properties, these will be the same object. However the principle has come under attack using a series of thought experiments employing the idea of radical symmetry. I follow the history of the debate including its theological origins to assess the contemporary arguments against the Identity of Indiscernibles. I argue that the principle is (...)

    Book Review of "The Ethics of Abortion" by C. Kaczor. [REVIEW]Gerald Keaney - 2011 - Journal of Applied Philosophy 28 (3):319-321.
    In this book review I argue that Kaczor misses an influential non-moralistic pro-chioce argument, and that even if we stick to moral argumentation his book faces a Sorites problem.

    In Defence of Einstein.Gerald Keaney - 2008 - Crossroads 3 (1):64-68 Free Online.
    I briefly chart the position Einstein came to on nuclear weapons. Then I defend that position against Matchett's idea that Einstein behaved as a pop scientist and intervened ignorantly on an issue of wider concern.

    A New Avant-Garde?Gerald Keaney - 2011 - Rethinking Marxism 23 (4):556-564.
    Many artists who identify as politically committed are suspicious of art due to the Situationist argument that revolutionary art is impossible. If right, the argument also rules out a future artistic avant-garde. I believe that, by concentrating on the truthtelling possibilities of art, we can meet the Situationist argument. To do so, it is necessary to change the relationship art has to everyday life. We can then speculate on the form of a future avant-garde.

  11. Free Play and the Foreclosure of New Babylon.Gerald Keaney - 2012 - Environment and Planning D 30:418-433.
    Automation may be able to completely eliminate the need for labour. But how should we use the freed-up time? In his proposal for a future urbanism, New Babylon, Constant Nieuwenhuys thought people would engage in nonstop free play, remaking surroundings. I argue that at the core of New Babylon is an intuition about a satisfying life, that of Homo ludens. This intuition had a broad appeal in the 1960s. New Babylon is an intuition pump, not a utopia, and Constant wants (...)
