    Feminist Epistemology and the Extent of the Social.Mark Owen Webb - 1995 - Hypatia 10 (3):85 - 98.
    Many feminist epistemologists have been inclined to embrace socialized epistemology. There are, however, many different theses that go by that name. Sandra Harding, Lynn Hankinson Nelson, and Elizabeth Potter hold various of these theses, but their reasons for holding those theses, while they do support less ambitious theses, do not support the theses they are offered to support.

  4. Theorizing Backlash: Philosophical Reflections on the Resistance to Feminism.Keith Burgess-Jackson, Mark Owen Webb, Martha Chamallas, Cynthia Willett, Julie E. Maybee, Carol A. Moeller, Alisa L. Carse, Debra A. DeBruin & Linda A. Bell (eds.) - 2002 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    Contrary to the popular belief that feminism has gained a foothold in the many disciplines of the academy, the essays collected in Theorizing Backlash argue that feminism is still actively resisted in mainstream academia. Contributors to this volume consider the professional, philosophical, and personal backlashes against feminist thought, and reflect upon their ramifications. The conclusion is that the disdain and irrational resentment of feminism, even in higher education, amounts to a backlash against progress.

    An Empirical Challenge to Dissatisfaction Theodicy.Mark Owen Webb - 2005 - Sophia 44 (2):197-203.
    Some philosophers of religion claim that one reason God permits suffering is to make people dissatisfied with their lives so they will turn to him. That theodicy is inadequate because 1) that strategy of behavior modification constitutes punishment (in the psychologists’ sense), and 2) punishment is not the most effective strategy of behavior modification. Since God can be expected to use the most effective strategy available to him, such a theodicy is inadequate.

    An Eliminativist Theory of Religion.Mark Owen Webb - 2009 - Sophia 48 (1):35-42.
    A philosophical theory of religion ought to meet four criteria: it should be extensionally accurate, neutral, phenomenological, and non-circular. I argue that none of the popular theories of religion meet all these criteria, and that, in particular, the extensional accuracy criterion and the non-circularity criterion can’t be met without sacrificing extensional accuracy. I conclude that, therefore, religions do not form a kind, and so, there is no such thing as religion.

    A Peace Plan for the Science Wars.Mark Owen Webb - 2011 - Logos and Episteme 2 (3):413-422.
    In what has become known as the ‘Science Wars,’ two sides have emerged. Some philosophers of science have claimed that, because science is a social practice, it is hopelessly infected with political bias. Others have claimed that science is a special kind of practice, structurally immune to bias. They are both right, because they are referring to different things when they use the word ‘science.’ The second group is referring the method of theory selection, as practiced by scientists in the (...)

    In Defense of Anselm.Mark Owen Webb - 2005 - Philo 8 (1):55-58.
    David Truncellito provides an analysis of Anselm’s ontological argument according to which Anselm’s use of the term “God” equivocates between purported reference to a being and reference to the idea of that being. I argue that this interpretation does not capture Anselm’s intent, and offer another analysis of the argument that charges Anselm with a different equivocation.

  16. Meeting Others in the Space of Reasons: Fallibilism for Sellarsians.Mark Owen Webb - 2007 - Poznan Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities 92 (1):217-231.
    Certainty has proved to be a troublesome epistemological concept, which motivates many philosophers to be fallibilists. But fallibilism proves troublesome, too, as it is hard to state in a way that does not either imply skepticism, or deny that there are necessary truths. The Sellarsian idea of a space of reasons in which there are normative proprieties attached to epistemic positions allows for an understanding of fallibilism which allows that there is knowledge, there are necessary truths, and yet we can (...)

  17. Natural Theology, Religious Experience, and the Reference of 'God'.Mark Owen Webb - 1991 - Dissertation, Syracuse University
    Even if an argument from religious experience can show that the subjects of religious experience are in contact with something which can justifiedly be named 'God', this does not settle the matter because, 'God' has a use other than its use as a proper name, in which use the term had descriptive content. To be of interest to Natural Theology, the argument from religious experience must show that the object of religious experience has the properties associated with the term 'God' (...)
