    The Problem of Induction: A New Approach.Marcos Barbosa De Oliveira - 1985 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 36 (2):129-145.
    The problem of induction is formulated as a set of three questions, namely: ‘What is the nature of the attitude of acceptance that we adopt in relation to certain theories?’ ‘What are the rules according to which we select those theories which we accept?’ and, ‘What is the justification for the adoption of those rules?’. An original answer is proposed for each question in turn, with the help of the new concepts of sub-theory, established sub-theory, aberrant, arbitrary and degenerate theories. (...)

    A Solution To The Problem Of Radical Translation.Marcos Barbosa de Oliveira - 1987 - Trans/Form/Ação 9:9-13.
    This paper consists in an attempt to refute Quine's principle of the indeterminacy of radical translation. The structure of the argument is as follows. The demonstration of the principle in Quine's work rests on certain conception of the process of radical translation. This conception can be maintained only if certain presuppositions are made concerning the nature of language and its speakers. However, if those presuppositions are adopted, there is no reason for not accepting also other presuppositions, which would invalidate Quine's (...)

    Cognitivism and cognitive science.Marcos Barbosa de Oliveira - 1990 - Trans/Form/Ação 13:85-93.
    The aim of the paper is to characterize a school of thought-cognitivism -and the discipline to which it gave rise. After a brief summary of the origins of cognitivism, the ontological and methodological principles which define it are described. The relationship that exists between computers and the functionalist idea of considering the mind as a system whose elements are characterized by their functions, and not by their material make-up is then presented. The paper concludes with a discussion about the nature (...)

    Considerations on the neutrality of science.Marcos Barbosa de Oliveira - 2003 - Trans/Form/Ação 26 (1):161-172.
    The work consists in a discussion of the thesis of neutrality of science and technology, which takes as its starting point some formulations in the Parâmetros Curriculares Nacionais. Neutrality is analised into three components: imparciality, applied neutrality and cognitive neutrality. It is shown that imparciality must be maintained, to avoid falling into relativism, but applied neutrality cannot be sustained, neither as fact nor as value.O texto apresenta uma discussão da tese da neutralidade da ciência, tomando como ponto de partida algumas (...)

    Logic and cognitive science: psychologism fights back.Marcos Barbosa de Oliveira - 1992 - Trans/Form/Ação 15:123-130.
    The aim of the paper is to present the historical context and the motivation of an investigation still in progress, together with a sketch of some of its results. It starts with a brief description of the nature and history of cognitive science. The relation of cognitive science to logic is then considered, from which consideration a conception of logic as a descriptive and mentalist discipline emerges. Such conception clashes with Frege's antipsychologism. The purpose of the investigation is to refute (...)

    On the problem of demarcation.Marcos Barbosa de Oliveira - 1982 - Trans/Form/Ação 5:85-101.
    Since its publication, there has been no lack of attacks directed against the criterion of refutability - the solution proposed by Popper for his problem of demarcation. A more fundamental criticism is raised in the present paper: its target is the problem of demarcation itself. It is shown first that Popper's work contains not one, but two distinct and incompatible problems of demarcation. An analysis of Popper's anti-essentialism is the starting point for the demonstration of the main thesis of the (...)

    Concepts and mental structure.Marcos Barbosa de Oliveira - 1991 - Trans/Form/Ação 14:73-91.
    The aim of the talk was to present a brief account of the history of investigations about concepts in the last decades, thereby contributing to the diffusion of cognitive science. The central episode in that history is the turning point that resultedfrom the researches carried out by Eleanor Rosch and others from the beginning of the 70's. Those researches constitute a challenge to the CLASSICAL VIEW OF CONCEPTS. The fact that the rejection of the classical view is not a viable (...)
