    McTaggart’s Theory of the Self.John Knox Jr - 1981 - Idealistic Studies 11 (2):151-166.
    According to J. M. E. McTaggart, all that exists is spiritual, where spirituality is defined as “the quality of having content, all of which is the content of one or more selves”. In view of the importance which he thus assigns to selves, one properly expects of McTaggart a clear, certainly a consistent, account of what a self is. Yet the picture one receives remains clouded—clouded mainly by positions which may be contradictory within themselves, and by what plainly look to (...)

    Concerning the Argument From Perspectival Variation.John Knox Jr - 1962 - Review of Metaphysics 15 (3):518-521.
    What were seen widely in Hume's time as "the obvious dictates of reason" are rarely if ever seen as such today. One reads now that the table does not seem to diminish as one removes oneself from it; instead it appears roughly the same in size all the while. And, what if it did seem to diminish? This would not prove that the existent of which one is visually aware is diminishing, and is therefore but the image of the table (...)

    Blanshard on Causation and Necessity.John Knox Jr - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (3):518-532.
    We shall get to the crux of the issue if we ask, "What is it that reason is after, and hopes to achieve?" According to Blanshard, it is the grasp of necessity; it is the knowledge not simply of what is, but also and at the same time of what in the strictest sense must be. For reason seeks a final answer to the question, "Why?"; and only when one's knowledge is necessary is a further "Why?" found to be entirely (...)

    Does Becoming Entail a Contradiction?John Knox Jr - 1970 - American Philosophical Quarterly 7 (4):357-363.
    In this paper I suggest that becoming, Or passage, Is not merely paradoxical, But positively contradictory. On the assumption that events become, We are entitled to say that at certain times, Certain events are earlier or later, As the case may be, Than such temporal events as the characterization of events by presentness. But since temporal relations are permanent, They cannot be said without contradiction to obtain at any one time as opposed to another.

    Diagonal Environmental Rights.John H. Knox - manuscript
    Environmental rights are diagonal if they are held by individuals or groups against the governments of states other than their own. The potential importance of such rights is obvious: governments' actions often affect the environment beyond their jurisdiction, and those who live in and rely upon the environment affected would like to be able to exercise rights against the governments causing them harm. Although international law has not adopted a comprehensive, uniform approach to such rights, human rights law and international (...)

    A. C. Ewing—A Critical Survey of Ewing's Recent Work.John Knox - 1975 - Religious Studies 11 (2):229.
    Is the existence of God a reasonable metaphysical hypothesis? So asks A. C. Ewing in his important posthumous work, Value and Reality . Thus the topic of the book is theistic religion, not in its entirety, but rather merely in its intellectual part. That it does have such a part, and further that it makes claims ‘to objective truth in the field of metaphysics’ , is defended on the grounds that a fictional ‘story’ about God has what religious or ethical (...)

    Can the Self Survive the Death of its Mind?John Knox - 1969 - Religious Studies 5 (1):85.
    C. A. Campbell has written: ‘Almost everyone…takes it to be in principle intelligible to ask whether the self can survive the destruction of its body . But it is taken by no one to be in principle intelligible to ask whether the self can survive the destruction of its mind .’ But is it, after all, so clearly nonsense to suppose that a self can survive the destruction of its mind? This at least is the question I shall raise in (...)

    Subjective Successions1.John Knox - 1985 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 28 (1-4):429-440.
    Certain facts about subjective successions support, I hold, a theory of mind?dependent sensory data. Suppose that no such theory is true and, furthermore, that as one experiences a visual subjective succession, that of which one is visually aware consists typically in a static physical array. Nevertheless one will, I hold, experience a certain change taking place within one's visual field; and under the imagined conditions, it is hard to fathom what this change could be. Various seemingly plausible and helpful suggestions (...)

    The Logic of Appearing.John Knox - 1967 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 10 (1-4):245-250.
    It is argued that statements about the ways in which objects appear entail the existence of appearances; in other words, ?A appears ?? ('appears? used phenomenologically) entails ?(Ex) ?x?. The argument turns on the proper analysis of comparative appearance statements, such as ?A feels warmer (to someone) than B?. Here A and B are not being compared directly with respect to the complex character of feeling warm. One is not, in other words, saying that A feels warm more than does (...)
