    Just as Beautiful but Not a Supertask.Jon P.É Laraudogoitia - 2002 - Mind 111 (442):281-288.
    In this paper I will put forward a simple case of a dynamical system which can exhibit both the indeterminism linked to escape to infinity and that linked to self-excitation. The case depends neither on the gravitational interaction between particles nor on their mutual collisions, and thus reveals the existence of a new kind of constraint that Newton's laws lay on the predictive power of classical dynamics.

    Taking Self‐Excitations Seriously: On Angel's Initial Condition.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2003 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 54 (2):319-326.
    In a recent article, L. Angel ([2001]) argues that if we do not implement Newtonian physics adding to it a certain usual type of boundary condition, then this leads to the rejection of what he calls the P principle: ‘the composition of contact interactions does not create a noncontact interaction.’ Here I shall demonstrate that this conclusion does not follow. However, as will be made clear, this in no way diminishes the interest or importance of the model introduced by Angel (...)

    Human Rights and Modernity: The Truth of the Fiction of Individual Rights.Jon P. Gunnemann - 1988 - Journal of Religious Ethics 16 (1):160 - 189.
    Accepting MacIntyre's teleological argument that the notion of individual rights is an invention or fiction, the article argues, against MacIntyre, that such a fiction may be interpreted as a creative response to the social requirements of modernity. Such rights language discloses the essential features of modernity but also the underlying teleological and moral structure of all human association. But whether rights language is perceived as a fall from morality or as a creative differentiation of moral language depends on a reading (...)

    Rigidity, Instability and Dimensionality.Jon Laraudogoitia - 2018 - Synthese 195 (9):4047-4062.
    The paper takes a detailed look at a surprising new aspect of the dynamics of rigid bodies. Far from the usual consideration of rigid body theory as a merely technical chapter of classical physics, I demonstrate here that there are solutions to the conservation equations of mechanics that imply the spontaneous, unpredictable splitting of a rigid body in free rotation, something that has direct implications for the problem of causality. The paper also shows that the instability revealed in indeterminist splitting (...)

  21. Infinity Machines and Creation Ex Nihilo.Jon Perez Laraudogoitia - 1998 - Synthese 115 (2):259-265.
    In this paper a simple model in particle dynamics of a well-known supertask is constructed (the supertask was introduced by Max Black some years ago). As a consequence, a new and simple result about creation ex nihilo of particles can be proved compatible with classical dynamics. This result cannot be avoided by imposing boundary conditions at spatial infinity, and therefore is really new in the literature. It follows that there is no reason why even a world of rigid spheres should (...)

    Dispositions and the Trojan Fly.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2014 - Noûs 48 (4):773-780.
    A detailed consideration of the Trojan fly supertask reveals certain unsuspected characteristics relating to determinism and causation. I propose here a solution to the new difficulty in terms of bare dispositions.

    Zeno and Flow of Information.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2013 - Synthese 190 (3):439-447.
    Although the current literature on supertasks concentrates largely on their supposed physical implications (extending the tradition of Zeno’s classical paradoxes of movement), in this study I propose a new model of supertask that explores for the first time some of their information-related consequences and I defend these consequences from a possible criticism.

    Some New Infinity Puzzles.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2020 - Philosophia 48 (3):1093-1099.
    Salmon was the first to speak explicitly of paradoxes of kinematics. In this short note I introduce a new class of infinity puzzles. Following natural terminology, they should actually be called static paradoxes.

    The Supertask Argument Against Countable Additivity.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2014 - Philosophical Studies 168 (3):619-628.
    This paper proves that certain supertasks constitute counterexamples to countable additivity even in the frame of an objective (not subjective, à la de Finetti) conception of probability. The argument requires taking conditional probability as a primitive notion.

    Marginally Perceptible Outcome Feedback, Motor Learning and Implicit Processes.Rich S. W. Masters, Jon P. Maxwell & Frank F. Eves - 2009 - Consciousness and Cognition 18 (3):639-645.
    Participants struck 500 golf balls to a concealed target. Outcome feedback was presented at the subjective or objective threshold of awareness of each participant or at a supraliminal threshold. Participants who received fully perceptible feedback learned to strike the ball onto the target, as did participants who received feedback that was only marginally perceptible . Participants who received feedback that was not perceptible showed no learning. Upon transfer to a condition in which the target was unconcealed, performance increased in both (...)

    Classical Particle Dynamics, Indeterminism and a Supertask.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 1997 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 48 (1):49-54.
    In this paper a model in particle dynamics of a well-known supertask is constructed. As a consequence, a new and simple result about the failure of determinism of classical particle dynamics can be proved which is related to the non-existence of boundary conditions at spatial infinity. This result is much more accessible to the non-technical reader than similar ones in the scientific literature.

    An Interesting Fallacy Concerning Dynamical Supertasks.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2005 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 56 (2):321-334.
    Recently, Alper, Bridger, Earman and Norton have all proposed examples of dynamic systems that, in their view, are incompatible with classical (Newtonian) mechanics. In the first section of the present paper I shall show that their arguments are all undermined by the same fallacy. The second section proves that their conclusions of incompatibility are indeed false, and that what we are really looking at are new forms of indeterminist evolution of the same kind as that found recently in the literature (...)

    Some Surprising Instabilities in Idealized Dynamical Systems.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2020 - Synthese 197 (7):3007-3026.
    This paper shows that, in Newtonian mechanics, unstable three-dimensional rigid bodies must exist. Laraudogoitia recently provided examples of one- and two-dimensional homogeneous unstable rigid bodies, conjecturing the instability would persist for three-dimensional bodies in four-dimensional space. My result proves that, if one admits non homogeneous balls or hollow spheres, then the conjecture is true without having to resort to tetra-dimensionality. Furthermore, I show that instability also holds for at least certain simple classes of elastic bodies. Altogether, the laws of (...)

    Physical Action Without Interaction.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2009 - Erkenntnis 70 (3):365-377.
    In "Action without interaction" I showed that one might act on a physical system, without interacting with it, by the procedure of making it disappear. This paper presents further extensions and a critique of that result. These extensions show why physical actions without interaction are possible, while underscoring the philosophical fertility of a characteristic approach to the actual infinite inaugurated by Benardete.

    On Norton’s Dome.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2013 - Synthese 190 (14):2925-2941.
    Norton’s very simple case of indeterminism in classical mechanics has given rise to a literature critical of his result. I am interested here in posing a new objection different from the ones made to date. The first section of the paper expounds the essence of Norton’s model and my criticism of it. I then propose a specific modification in the absence of gravitational interaction. The final section takes into consideration a surprising consequence for classical mechanics from the new model introduced (...)

  42. Some Relativistic and Higher Order Supertasks.Jon Perez Laraudogoitia - 1998 - Philosophy of Science 65 (3):502-517.
    The first aim of this paper is to introduce a new way of looking at supertasks in the light of special relativity which makes use of the elementary dynamics of relativistic point particles subjected to elastic binary collisions and constrained to move unidimensionally. In addition, this will enable us to draw new physical consequences from the possibility of supertasks whose ordinal type is higher than the usual ω or ω * considered so far in the literature. Thus, the paper shows (...)

    On the Atkinson–Johnson Homogeneous Solution for Infinite Systems.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2015 - Foundations of Physics 45 (5):496-506.
    This paper shows that the general homogeneous solution to equations of evolution for some infinite systems of particles subject to mutual binary collisions does not depend on a single arbitrary constant but on a potentially infinite number of such constants. This is because, as I demonstrate, a single self-excitation of a system of particles can depend on a potentially infinite number of parameters. The recent homogeneous solution obtained by Atkinson and Johnson, which depends on a single arbitrary constant, is only (...)

    A Flawed Argument Against Actual Infinity in Physics.Jon Perez Laraudogoitia - 2010 - Foundations of Physics 40 (12):1902-1910.
    In “Nonconservation of Energy and loss of Determinism II. Colliding with an Open Set” (2010) Atkinson and Johnson argue in favour of the idea that an actual infinity should be excluded from physics, at least in the sense that physical systems involving an actual infinity of component elements should not be admitted. In this paper I show that the argument Atkinson and Johnson use is erroneous and that an analysis of the situation considered by them is possible without requiring any (...)

    Undeformable Bodies That Are Not Rigid Bodies: A Philosophical Journey Through Some (Unexpected) Supertasks.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - forthcoming - Axiomathes:1-21.
    There is broad consensus as to what a rigid body is in classical mechanics. The idea is that a rigid body is an undeformable body. In this paper I show that, if this identification is accepted, there are therefore rigid bodies which are unstable. Instability here means that the evolution of certain rigid bodies, even when isolated from all external influence, may be such that their identity is not preserved over time. The result is followed by analyzing supertasks that are (...)

    On the Dynamics of Alper and Bridger.Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia - 2002 - Synthese 131 (2):157 - 171.
    Bridger and Alper (1999) maintain that the nonphysical featuresof the supertasks described by Pérez Laraudogoitia (1996) involving a system containing an infinite number of particles may be avoided by introducing, in a specific way, Hilbert space in classical dynamics. I argue that it is possible to interpret their proposal in two ways, neither of which is acceptable for the purpose for which it was introduced.
