    Necessity, Apriority, and Logical Structure.Leora Weitzman - 1997 - Erkenntnis 46 (1):33-47.
    Logical structure may explain the necessity and a priori knowability of such truths as that if A is red then A is either red or green. But this explanation cannot be extended to sentences that, while necessary and knowable a priori, do not wear the appropriate logical structure on their sleeves – sentences like ''''if A is a point and A is red, then A is not green,'''' or ''''if A is a sphere, then A is not a cube.'''' The (...)

    Frege on the Individuation of Thoughts.Leora Weitzman - 1997 - Dialogue 36 (03):563-.
    Les caractérisations apparemment conflictuelles quepropose Frege des pensées comme étant à lafois vériconditionnelles et ordonnées à la cognition, peuvent être vues comme deux manifestations d'une unique conception unificatrice. Mais ni la conception unificatrice ni chacune des caractérisations divergentes ne conduisent a un véritable critère d'identité pour les pensées. Car aucune des voies qu'elles suggerent pour distinguer les pensées les unes des autres oupour les réidentifier nepeut être adoptée sans I'aide d'une façon préalable d'individuer les pensées.

    Is the Possibility of Massive Error Ruled Out by Semantic Holism?Leora Weitzman - 1998 - Journal of Philosophical Research 23 (January):147-163.
    Among anti-skeptical arguments based on premises about meaning, Davidson’s is distinctive because of the holistic element in both his semantic starting point and his epistemological conclusion. Davidson takes the primary bearers of meaning to be belief systems, and it is actually-held belief systems whose overall correctness he concludes to be knowable. Critical attention has gravitated toward a part of the argument that claims that any meaningful discourse must be radically interpretable by one who is omniscient except for the meanings of (...)

  6. 11 Anti-Individualism, Self-Knowledge, and Why Skepticism Cannot Be Cartesian.Leora Weitzman - 2010 - In Joseph Keim Campbell, Michael O.’Rourke & Harry S. Silverstein (eds.), Knowledge and Skepticism. MIT Press. pp. 263.
    This chapter discusses anti-individualism—which often depicts the individual as a physical creature bounded by its skin—and how it runs contrary to the Cartesian view of the mind—which states that it is coherent to doubt whether any of one’s thoughts correspond to external objects. Anti-individualism contends that this is a conceptual truth; without objects external to an individual, that individual’s purported thoughts would have no content at all. A well-known argument presented by McKinsey holds out the possibility of proving to skeptics (...)
