    Gott's doomsday argument.Bradley Monton & Sherri Roush - unknown
    Physicist J. Richard Gott uses the Copernican principle that “we are not special” to make predictions about the future lifetime of the human race, based on how long the human race has been in existence so far. We show that the predictions which can be derived from Gott’s argument are less strong than one might be inclined to believe, that Gott’s argument illegitimately assumes that the human race will not last forever, that certain versions of (...)’s argument are incompatible with Bayesian conditionalization, and that Gott’s argument is self-refuting. -/- *****Note: For Bradley Monton's up-to-date thoughts on Gott's argument, see his _Philosophical Quarterly_ paper co-authored with Brian Kierland, "How To Predict Future Duration from Present Age".*****.

    Richard Dawkins Hauptargument wissenschaftstheoretisch betrachtet.Albert J. J. Anglberger, Christian J. Feldbacher & Stefan H. Gugerell - 2010 - In Albert J. J. Anglberger & Paul Weingartner (eds.), Neuer Atheismus Wissenschaftlich Betrachtet. Ontos. pp. 181-197.
    Dieser Sammelband hat zum Ziel, moderne atheistische Richtungen kritisch und wissenschaftlich zu betrachten. Mit diesen modernen atheistischen Richtungen ist vor allem der in Oxford unterrichtende Biologe und Religionskritiker Richard Dawkins verknüpft, bekennender Gegner von Kreationismus, Intelligent Design und Theologie, der schon 1976 mit der Veröffentlichung seines Buches "Der Gotteswahn" in der breiten Öffentlichkeit auf sich aufmerksam machte. Auch in jüngerer Vergangenheit, und zwar im Jahr 2006, war Dawkins mit seinem Buch (Dawkins 2006) an einem erneuten Aufflammen einer vor allem (...)

  3. ‚Verantwortung für das Ganze‘ als Quelle der Gewalt.William J. Hoye - 2019 - In Richard Schaeffler, Christoph Böhr & Hanna-Barbara Gerl-Falkovitz (eds.), Gott denken: zur Philosophie von Religion: Richard Schaeffler zu Ehren. Wiesbaden: Springer VS. pp. 297-301.
    Im Folgenden werde ich die These darlegen, dass die Idee von der ‚Verantwortung für das Ganze‘ fast zwangsläufig Gewalt hervorbringt. Die Wirklichkeit lässt sich nicht auf diese Weise einfangen. Richard Schaeffler hat es zutreffend gesagt: „Der ‚je größere‘ Anspruch des Wirklichen wird sich dadurch geltend machen, dass keine Weise des Anschauens, des Wahrnehmens, des Erfahrens und Begreifens ihm endgültig Genüge tut.“.

    On Neutral Relations.Richard Gaskin & Daniel J. Hill - 2012 - Dialectica 66 (1):167-186.
    Is there an explanation of why the state of x's bearing the non-symmetric binary relation R to y is different from its differential opposite, the state of y's bearing R to x? One traditional view has it that the explanation is that non-symmetric relations hold of objects in an essentially directional way, ordering the relevant relata. We call this view ‘directionalism’. Kit Fine has suggested that this approach is subject to significant metaphysical difficulties, sufficient to motivate seeking an alternative analysis. (...)

    Detecting olfactory rivalry.Richard J. Stevenson & Mehmet K. Mahmut - 2013 - Consciousness and Cognition 22 (2):504-516.
    Olfactory rivalry can occur when a binary mixture is sniffed repeatedly, with one percept dominating then the other. Experiment 1 demonstrated olfactory rivalry using several new techniques. Experiments 2 and 3 examined whether participants can notice rivalry. Participants received trials composed of odor pairs: either a mixture followed by the same mixture; or a pure odor followed by the same pure odor. On some trials participants judged whether the two stimuli were the same or different, to see if they could (...)

    Beyond Metaphysics Revisited: Krishnamurti and Western Philosophy.J. Richard Wingerter - 2002 - Upa.
    A careful and intense look at the writings of J. Krishnamurti results in the understanding of the important differences there are between conscious awareness and awareness which is not consciousness, perception with a perceiver and perceiverless perception, abstract truth and living truth, and most importantly between a partially functioning and a totally functioning, that is, a truly silent, meditative mind.

    Prolegomenon to the structure of emotion: Gleanings from neuropsychology.Richard J. Davidson - 1992 - Cognition and Emotion 6 (3):245-268.
    This article presents a model of the structure of emotion developed primarily from a consideration of neuropsychological evidence and behavioural data which have bearing on neuropsychological theories. Valence is first considered and highlighted as a defining characteristic of emotion. Next, the use of facial behaviour and autonomic nervous system patterns as defining characteristics of discrete emotions is questioned on empirical and conceptual grounds. The regulation of emotion is considered and proposed to affect the very structure of emotion itself. If there (...)

    Child Workers, Globalization, and International Business Ethics.J. Lawrence French & Richard E. Wokutch - 2005 - Business Ethics Quarterly 15 (4):615-640.
    Disputes regarding the ethics of work by children have intensified in recent years, with little resolution. The impasses stem from failure to recognize the diverse forms of child work and a lack of empirical research regarding its causes and consequences. We report on data gathered in Brazil’s export-oriented shoe industry, which is notorious for the employment of children. Central findings are: 1) the causes of child work have less to do with backwardness and more to do with how shoe workers (...)

    Efforts to improve the means to diagnose and treat human genetic diseases have a long history in biomedical research and medicine. Now, preimplantation genetic diagnosis provides a new way to prevent the transmission of certain types of human genetic diseases to the next generation. It is an alternative to elective termination of pregnancies.PGD is used to test for genetic diseases that are due to defective single genes or abnormal chromosomes within days of fertilization and prior to the establishment of pregnancy.

    The Longevity Argument.Ronald Pisaturo - 2011 - self.
    J. Richard Gott III (1993) has used the “Copernican principle” to derive a probability density function for the total longevity of any phenomenon, based solely on the phenomenon’s past longevity. John Leslie (1996) and others have used an apparently similar probabilistic argument, the “Doomsday Argument,” to claim that conventional predictions of longevity must be adjusted, based on Bayes’ Theorem, in favor of shorter longevities. Here I show that Gott’s arguments are flawed and contradictory, but that one of (...)

    Universalism Vs. Relativism: Making Moral Judgments in a Changing, Pluralistic, and Threatening World.Richard J. Bernstein, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Amitai Etzioni, William Galston, Franklin I. Gamwell, Timothy Jackson, James Turner Johnson, John Kelsay & Jean Porter (eds.) - 2006 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    Has moral relativism run its course? The threat of 9/11, terrorism, reproductive technology, and globalization has forced us to ask anew whether there are universal moral truths upon which to base ethical and political judgments. In this timely edited collection, distinguished scholars present and test the best answers to this question. These insightful responses temper the strong antithesis between universalism and relativism and retain sensitivity to how language and history shape the context of our moral decisions. This important and relevant (...)

    Structural characteristics of two highly selective opioid peptides.Richard J. Knapp, Henry I. Yamamura, Wieslaw Kazmierski & Victor J. Hruby - 1989 - Bioessays 10 (2-3):58-61.
    The demonstration of opioid receptors by radioligand binding and the discovery of their endogenous peptide ligands has provided a new class of compounds that can be used for the development of novel opioids. The number of potential receptor targets for such opioids has been expanded by the identification of multiple opioid receptor types The development of highly selective opioid peptides using the principles of conformational restriction permits the analysis of the structure‐activity requirements of each receptor type, and is facilitating the (...)

  40. Toward a Biology of Personality and Emotion.Richard J. Davidson - unknown
    For most of this past century, scholarship on the topics of personal- ity and emotion has emerged from the humanities and social sciences. In the past decade, a remarkable change has occurred in the influence of neuro- science on the conceptualization and study of these phenomena. This article ar- gues that the categories that have emerged from psychiatric nosology and descriptive personality theory may be inadequate, and that new categories and dimensions derived from neuroscience research may produce a more tractable (...)
