  5. The Worst Enemy of Science?: Essays in Memory of Paul Feyerabend.John Preston, Gonzalo Munevar & David Lamb (eds.) - 2000 - Oup Usa.
    This stimulating collection is devoted to the life and work of the most flamboyant of twentieth-century philosophers, Paul Feyerabend. Feyerabend's radical epistemological claims, and his stunning argument that there is no such thing as scientific method, were highly influential during his life and have only gained attention since his death in 1994. The essays that make up this volume, written by some of today's most respected philosophers of science, many of whom knew Feyerabend as students and colleagues, cover the diverse (...)

    Science as Radical Knowledge.Gonzalo Munévar - 2018 - Límite 13 (41).
    ABSTRACT The view that science is typically a cumulative, progressive process, as suggested by some historians of science and some scientific realists, is undermined both by history and by evolutionary considerations about the nature of science. The attempts to use evolutionary biology to portray scientific development as continuous are based on unfortunate analogies to the evolu tion of life. A proper application of evolutionary biology, in combination with neuroscience, defeats the case for the realism in question and leads to the (...)

    Biology and Gettier’s Paradox.Gonzalo Munévar - 2019 - Studia Humana 8 (1):93-98.
    Gettier’s Paradox is considered a most critical problem for the presumably obvious philosophical view that knowledge is justified true belief. Such a view of knowledge, however, exposes the poverty of analytic philosophy. It wrongly assumes, for example, that knowledge must be conscious and explicit, and, to make matters worse, linguistic, as illustrated in Donald Davidson’s writings. To show why this philosophical view is wrong I will point to arguments by Ruth Barcan Marcus and, principally, Paul Churchland, as well as to (...)

    A Distributive Explanation of “Grandmother” Cells.Gonzalo Munevar - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 34:25-31.
    The existence of “grandmother” cells clashes with the model of the brain as a distributive system and is implausible because such neurons would have powers of representation across visuals angles and contexts. Nevertheless, Kreiman, Koch and others have offered experimental evidence that such neurons do exist. I agree that neurons may indeed fire when the subject looks at a variety of pictures, drawings, etc. of one particular person. I argue, however, that such a “grandmother” cell is nothing but the single-neuron (...)

    Evolution and Justification.Gonzalo Munévar - 1988 - The Monist 71 (3):339-357.
    In tackling the issue of justification, philosophers have gone overboard in their efforts to discover fallacies in the reasoning of otherwise sensible people. And having fallen into deep water, those philosophers now find that they do not know how to swim. The cause of such philosophical distress can be located in what may have once appeared as a virtue: the separation between man and nature. Science may describe the world, and even us, but it cannot tell us what we ought (...)

    SPANISH: La filosofía se resiste a extender al hombre estilos de explicación que funcionan bien en la investigación de la naturaleza sin tener en cuenta que también somos parte de ella. Al tenerlo en cuenta, sin embargo, hacemos posible la revitalización de la filosofía y quizá hasta la solución, de sus problemas más importantes. Las ciencias neuronales en un contexto evolutivo transforman, por ejemplo, los problemas del realismo y de la racionalidad científica. Al considerar que nuestras estructuras cerebrales –y por (...)

    La notion de « conscience-noyau » due à Antonio Damasio comporte de sérieux défauts. Elle ne peut rendre compte de phénomènes comme le rêve ou le syndrome d’enfermement qu’une théorie adéquate de la conscience devrait expliquer, car elle suppose que la représentation de soi par un organisme est affectée par son traitement d’un objet. Cette condition ne peut être satisfaite dans aucun de ces deux états. De plus, dans de nombreux états dans lesquels l’organisme prend en compte l’effet, par exemple, (...)

    Consensus and Evolution in Science.Gonzalo Munevar - 1986 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1986:120 - 129.
    Science is a social expression of intelligence. As such, science can be explained as a product of our natural history. This naturalistic account of science leads to a social conception of scientific rationality, according to which rationality is a structural property of science as a whole, not to be ascribed to the behavior of individual scientists. This new conception of rationality embedded in a straightforward biological epistemology solves the problem of the rationality of science.

    Venus and the end of the world [Spanish].Gonzalo Munévar - 2006 - Eidos: Revista de Filosofía de la Universidad Del Norte 4:10-25.
    Resumen Este artículo busca demostrar que los argumentos generales acerca de la exploración científica valen también para las ciencias espaciales. El trabajo se basa en el ejemplo de la exploración de Venus y lo que esta nos dice acerca de nuestro propio planeta. Argumenta que el concepto de la probabilidad de Leslie es incorrecto, como también lo son las dudas sobre la evidencia Venusiana. Así mismo, concluye que no se puede rechazar la importancia que tienen los descubrimientos inesperados que han (...)

  30. A Biological Approach To The Philosophy Of Science.Gonzalo Munevar - 2007 - Eidos: Revista de Filosofía de la Universidad Del Norte 7:110-127.
    Philosophy resists the extensión to man of modes of explanation that function well in the investigation of nature, without taking into account that we too are part of it. When we take that into account, however, we make possible the revitalizing of philosophy and perhaps even the solution of its most significant problems. Neuroscience in an evolutionary context, for example, transforms the problems of realism and scientific rationality. Upon considering that our brain structures – and consequently our modes of thought (...)

    The scientific exploration of Mars might yield results of extraordinary importance for our own planet, particularly the search for extant or fossil Martian life, which would make it possible to understand terrestrial life in a more profound way. This potential scientific treasure places on us an ethical obligation to minimize the disruption of the Martian environment until our scientific exploration has been greatly advanced. We also have ethical obligations to the human scientific explorers of Mars, ethical obligations that require a (...)
