    Intentionality and Information Processing: An Alternative Model for Cognitive Science.Kenneth M. Sayre - 1986 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 9 (1):121-38.
    This article responds to two unresolved and crucial problems of cognitive science: (1) What is actually accomplished by functions of the nervous system that we ordinarily describe in the intentional idiom? and (2) What makes the information processing involved in these functions semantic? It is argued that, contrary to the assumptions of many cognitive theorists, the computational approach does not provide coherent answers to these problems, and that a more promising start would be to fall back on mathematical communication theory (...)

    Metaphysics and Method in Plato's Statesman.Kenneth M. Sayre - 2006 - Cambridge University Press.
    At the beginning of his Metaphysics, Aristotle attributed several strange-sounding theses to Plato. Generations of Plato scholars have assumed that these could not be found in the dialogues. In heated arguments, they have debated the significance of these claims, some arguing that they constituted an 'unwritten teaching' and others maintaining that Aristotle was mistaken in attributing them to Plato. In a prior book-length study on Plato's late ontology, Kenneth M. Sayre demonstrated that, despite differences in terminology, these claims correspond to (...)

    The problem of semantic content is the problem of explicating those features of brain processes by virtue of which they may properly be thought to possess meaning or reference. This paper criticizes the account of semantic content associated with fodor's version of cognitive science, And offers an alternative account based on mathematical communication theory. Its key concept is that of a neuronal representation maintaining a high-Level of mutual information with a designated external state of affairs under changing conditions of perceptual (...)

    Statistical Models of Causal Relations.Kenneth M. Sayre - 1977 - Philosophy of Science 44 (2):203-214.
    A model of causation is presented which shares the advantages of Reichenbach's definition in terms of the screening-off relation, but which has the added advantage of distinguishing cause and effect without reference to temporal directionality. This model is defined in terms of the masking relation, which in turn is defined in terms of the equivocation relation of communication theory.

    Action, Emotion and Will.Kenneth M. Sayre - 1964 - Philosophical Studies (Dublin) 13:215-217.
    This book will please different people for different reasons. Those who have felt the lack of an adequate analysis of the emotions will be gratified by the author’s clarity and comprehension of view in distinguishing among feelings, desires, and pleasures. Ethical theorists may benefit from his analysis of the difference between motives and intentions. Philosophers who have been puzzled by Wittgenstein’s remarks on sensation in Parts I and II of Philosophical Investigations may expect to find some relief in the author’s (...)

    Minds, Machines and Gödel.Kenneth M. Sayre & Frederick J. Crosson - unknown
    Gödel's theorem seems to me to prove that Mechanism is false, that is, that minds cannot be explained as machines. So also has it seemed to many other people: almost every mathematical logician I have put the matter to has confessed to similar thoughts, but has felt reluctant to commit himself definitely until he could see the whole argument set out, with all objections fully stated and properly met.1 This I attempt to do.

    I do not wish at this time to dispute either or. I do not believe, however, that the intermediate step can be adequately justified, and hence remain unconvinced by the purported conclusion. The most recent presentation of this argument is in Professor Dreyfus' article "Why Computers must have Bodies in order to be Intelligent," a discussion of which will serve to explain my lack of confidence in any argument of this general form.

    Sensationalism and Scientific Explanation.Kenneth M. Sayre - 1964 - Philosophical Studies (Dublin) 13:240-243.
    There are several things about this little book which make it worth reading. One is its lucid summary of Mach’s views on the constitution of physical objects out of sensations, and on the nature of scientific explanation, which the author labels ‘Sensationalism’. Another is his analysis of descriptions, in particular his discussion of the characteristics with reference to which we judge a description satisfactory or otherwise. Of less direct relevance to the main theme of the book, but suggestive nonetheless, is (...)

    On Disagreement About Perception.Kenneth M. Sayre - 1964 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 7 (1-4):143 – 162.
    We attempt to clarify the nature of philosophic assertions about perception by considering how one can argue effectively against such assertions. Reasons are given, with illustrative assertions from Aristotle and Berkeley, why one cannot argue effectively against such either (1) by arguing for contrary assertions in competing theories or (2) by appealing to scientific observation. Effective arguments against such accounts include (1) those which demonstrate inconsistency within the account, (2) those which disclose an unintelligibility within the account, and (3) those (...)

    The Problems of Perception.Kenneth M. Sayre - 1960 - Philosophical Studies (Dublin) 10 (10):239-242.
    Psychologists, physiologists, and philosophers find different problems in perception, and the interested layman is often puzzled when he comes to realize how little scientific and philosophic theories of perception have in common. The approach of this book is synoptic, in that the author believes that evidence from scientific theories of perception can be brought to bear upon the solution of problems traditionally left to the philosopher. Among problems which Hirst attempts to unravel with the help of physiology and psychology are (...)

Sayre argues that the only way to resolve our current environmental crisis is to reduce our energy consumption to a level where the entropy produced by that consumption no longer exceeds the biosphere’s ability to dispose of it. Tangible illustrations of this entropy buildup include global warming, ozone depletion, loss of species diversity, and unmanageable amounts of nonbiodegradable waste._ Degradation of the biosphere is tied directly to human energy use, (...)
