    Vision and Elusiveness in Philosophy of Education: R. S. Peters on the Legacy of Michael Oakeshott.Kevin Williams - 2009 - Philosophy of Education 43 (Supplement s1):223-240.
    Despite his elusiveness on important issues, there is much in Michael Oakeshott's educational vision that Richard Peters quite rightly wishes to endorse. The main aim of this essay is, however, to consider Peters' justifiable critique of three features of Oakeshott's work. These are the rigidity of his distinction between vocational and university education, the lack of clarity and accuracy in his philosophy of teaching and learning, especially the under-conceptualisation of the role of example in teaching, the over-emphasis on tradition in (...)

    Hegel on the Proofs and Personhood of God: Studies in Hegel's Logic and Philosophy of Religion by Robert R. Williams[REVIEW]Kevin J. Harrelson - 2017 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 55 (4):739-740.
    Hegel endorsed proofs of the existence of God, and also believed God to be a person. Some of his interpreters ignore these apparently retrograde tendencies, shunning them in favor of the philosopher's more forward-looking contributions. Others embrace Hegel's religious thought, but attempt to recast his views as less reactionary than they appear to be. Robert Williams's latest monograph belongs to a third category: he argues that Hegel's positions in philosophical theology are central to his philosophy writ large. The book (...)

  12. Lewis on Reference and Eligibility.J. R. G. Williams - 2015 - In Barry Loewer & Jonathan Schaffer (eds.), A companion to David Lewis. Wiley-Blackwell. pp. 367-382.
    This paper outlines Lewis’s favoured foundational account of linguistic representation, and outlines and briefly evaluates variations and modifications. Section 1 gives an opinionated exegesis of Lewis’ work on the foundations of reference—his interpretationism. I look at the way that the metaphysical distinction between natural and non-natural properties came to play a central role in his thinking about language. Lewis’s own deployment of this notion has implausible commitments, so in section 2 I consider variations and alternatives. Section 3 briefly considers a (...)

    The Use of Barostratigraphy for Identifying and Categorizing Pressure Compartmentalization.Kevin B. Hall, Kenneth E. Williams, Joel L. Gevirtz & Matt J. Croy - 2014 - Interpretation: SEG 2 (1):SB27-SB44.
    Permeability and geologic time are the primary controlling factors for the generation and dissipation of overpressures. With respect to increasing depth, pressure gradients within any layer may increase, decrease, or remain essentially constant. Pore pressure gradients also vary laterally as a response to changes in permeability, which do not always correspond to seismic or correlation surfaces. In some cases, pressure may not respond at all to the presence of a fault, indicating that the fault zone is permeable and that either (...)

  16. David Lewis, Donald C. Williams, and the History of Metaphysics in the Twentieth Century.A. R. J. Fisher - 2015 - Journal of the American Philosophical Association 1 (1):3--22.
    The revival of analytic metaphysics in the latter half of the twentieth century is typically understood as a consequence of the critiques of logical positivism, Quine’s naturalization of ontology, Kripke’s Naming and Necessity, clarifications of modal notions in logic, and the theoretical exploitation of possible worlds. However, this explanation overlooks the work of metaphysicians at the height of positivism and linguisticism that affected metaphysics of the late twentieth century. Donald C. Williams is one such philosopher. In this paper I (...)

    Opiate Written Behavioral Agreements: A Case for Abandonment.Paul R. Helft, Jessica R. Williams & Robin J. Bandy - 2014 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 57 (3):415-423.
    Written behavioral agreements came into clinical use more than 40 years ago, originally for the purpose of contracting for safety among patients expressing suicidal ideation. The first identified reference to the concept of contracting with suicidal patients appeared in the psychiatric literature in 1967. They have gained substantial popularity since then and are commonly employed across diverse medical settings, most notably in psychiatry, pain medicine, and addiction medicine.Because of the epidemic of harm from prescription medications, especially opiates, the popularity of (...)

    "He Got His Last Wishes": Ways of Knowing a Loved One's End-of-Life Preferences and Whether Those Preferences Were Honored.A. R. Wittich, B. R. Williams, F. A. Bailey, L. L. Woodby & K. L. Burgio - 2013 - Journal of Clinical Ethics 24 (2):113-124.
    As a patient approaches death, family members often are asked about their loved one’s preferences regarding treatment at the end of life. Advance care directives may provide information for families and surrogate decision makers; however, less than one-third of Americans have completed such documents. As the U.S. population continues to age, many surrogate decision makers likely will rely on other means to discern or interpret a loved one’s preferences. While many surrogates indicate that they have some knowledge of their loved (...)

  22. Shining a Light on Race: Contrast and Assimilation Effects in the Perception of Skin Tone and Racial Typicality.Kevin R. Brooks, Daniel Sturman & O. Scott Gwinn - 2020 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    Researchers have long debated the extent to which an individual’s skin tone influences their perceived race. Brooks and Gwinn demonstrated that the race of surrounding faces can affect the perceived skin tone of a central target face without changing perceived racial typicality, suggesting that skin lightness makes a small contribution to judgments of race compared to morphological cues. However, the lack of a consistent light source may have undermined the reliability of skin tone cues, encouraging observers to rely disproportionately on (...)

    Hume's Alleged Lapse on the Causal Maxim.Kevin R. Busch - 2016 - Hume Studies 42 (1/2):89-112.
    In his account of our belief in the Causal Maxim Hume argued, among other things, that it is not absolutely necessary for any event to be caused. Harold Noonan attempts an objection to Hume’s argument: in showing (i) the absolute possibility for any event to exist without its actual cause, Hume would not thereby show (ii) the absolute possibility for any event to exist uncaused. For this objection to succeed, Noonan needs two further assumptions: first, that Hume indeed could not (...)

    Reason, Induction, and the Humean Objection to Kant.Kevin R. Busch - 2015 - Kant Yearbook 7 (1):23-45.
    While Kant does not address the problem of induction often attributed to Hume, he does, by way of a transcendental deduction of an a priori principle of reflecting empirical judgment, address a distinct problem Hume raises indirectly. This problem is that induction cannot be justified so long as it presupposes some empirical concept applying to or some empirical principle true of more than one object in nature, a presupposition neither determined by nor founded on reason. I draw on Hume’s positive (...)

    Psychotherapy as Applied Science or Moral Praxis: The Limitations of Empirically Supported Treatment.Kevin R. Smith - 2009 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 29 (1):34-46.
    Proponents of empirically supported treatment have argued that psychotherapists have an ethical obligation to make an EST the first choice in clinical practice. This paper challenges this idea. The EST program assumes a model of therapy as technology or applied science that poorly fits the reality of psychotherapeutic practice. The problems brought to therapy implicate fundamental questions regarding what constitutes a good life. A therapeutic response to such problems is not a technical means to change a circumscribed disorder, but an (...)

    There remains much to be learned from searching exploration of the great authors who have meditated on education. Montaigne is one such thinker and this essay endeavors to draw together the strands of his pedagogy and to demonstrate how they gain purchase in the business of teaching and learning. The article also proposes to supplement his vision with practical examples from fiction and autobiography. Perhaps the most striking theme is the need to be able to decentre from the comfort zone (...)
