    Probabilities: Reasonable or True?J. Alberto Coffa - 1977 - Philosophy of Science 44 (2):186-198.
    Hempel's high probability requirement asserts that any rationally acceptable answer to the question 'Why did event X occur?' must offer information which shows that X was to be expected at least with reasonable probability. Salmon rejected this requirement in his S-R model. This led to a series of paradoxical consequences, such as the assertion that an explanation of an event can both lower its probability and make it arbitrarily low, and the assertion that the explanation of an outcome would have (...)

    Russell as a Platonic Dialogue: The Matter of Denoting.J. Alberto Coffa - 1980 - Synthese 45 (1):43-70.
    At first russell thought (p) that whatever a proposition is about must be a constituent of it. Then, Around 1900, He discovered denoting concepts and realized that a proposition could be about something and have only its denoting concept as constituent. However, A number of remarks that he made through the years can only be understood as inspired by (p). In particular, The arguments offered in "on denoting" against the doctrine of denotation of "principles" are grounded on (p).

    Review Essays: The Semantic Tradition From Kant to Carnap: To the Vienna StationThe Semantic Tradition From Kant to Carnap: To the Vienna Station. [REVIEW]Rolf George, Paul Rusnock, J. Alberto Coffa & Linda Wessels - 1996 - Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 56 (2):461.
    The impressive volume before us started out as an attempt to write “the history of epistemology since Kant, the way Carnap would have written it had he been Hegel.” Coffa began his project in 1981 while a fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Science in Pittsburgh and had finished a “good penultimate draft” when he suddenly died, after a brief illness, on 30 Dec., 1984. The title alludes to Edmund Wilson’s classic study of revolutionary ideology, To the Finland Station. (...)

    Reply to Harnatt.J. Alberto Coffa - 1976 - Zeitschrift Für Allgemeine Wissenschaftstheorie 7 (2):357-358.
    Summary Canfield and Lehrer argued in [1] that it is impossible to predict an event deductively from given laws and initial conditions. In [2] I showed (1) that there are counterexamples to C&L's claim, (2) that their argument was based on an assumption which they failed to recognize, let alone support (the assumption that there are ‘rejectible’ facts), (3) that if certain simple conditions on predictability were granted, it could be shown that C&L's tacit assumption is false. In a recent (...)

  18. The Semantic Tradition From Kant to Carnap: To the Vienna Station.J. Alberto Coffa - 1993 - Cambridge University Press.
    This major publication is a history of the semantic tradition in philosophy from the early nineteenth century through its incarnation in the work of the Vienna Circle, the group of logical positivists that emerged in the years 1925–1935 in Vienna who were characterised by a strong commitment to empiricism, a high regard for science, and a conviction that modern logic is the primary tool of analytic philosophy. In the first part of the book, Alberto Coffa traces the roots of logical (...)
