  2. The Logic of Thought Experiments.Martin Bunzl - 1996 - Synthese 106 (2):227 - 240.
    In this paper I argue that (at least many) philosophical thought experiments are unreliable. But I argue that this notion of unreliability has to be understood relative to the goal of thought experiments as knowledge producing. And relative to that goal many thought experiments in science are just as unreliable. But in fact thought experiments in science play a varied role and I will suggest that knowledge production is a goal only under quite limited circumstances. I defend the view that (...)

    Foundational Issues in Human Brain Mapping.Stephen José Hanson & Martin Bunzl (eds.) - 2010 - Bradford.
    The field of neuroimaging has reached a watershed. Brain imaging research has been the source of many advances in cognitive neuroscience and cognitive science over the last decade, but recent critiques and emerging trends are raising foundational issues of methodology, measurement, and theory. Indeed, concerns over interpretation of brain maps have created serious controversies in social neuroscience, and, more important, point to a larger set of issues that lie at the heart of the entire brain mapping enterprise. In this volume, (...)

    Real History: Reflections on Historical Practice.Martin Bunzl - 1997 - Routledge.
    In Real History , Martin Bunzl brilliantly succeeds in bringing together two schools of thought at the forefront of the philosophy of history: that of realism and objectivity. He shows us how the realism debate is inhabited by philosophers, whereas the objectivity argument lies in the hands of historians. In his lucid and direct style, Bunzl proposes a synthesis between these two parallel traditions. We see that what historians say they are doing is not necessarily what they are actually doing. (...)

    Conventions Made Too Simple?Martin Bunzl & Richard Kreuter - 2003 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 33 (4):417-426.
    For Ruth Millikan, convention consists of patterns that are produced by reproduction which proliferate due partly to weight of precedent. The authors argue that on Millikan’s account, a lot more is going to count as conventional than seems reasonable on any plausible account of convention. Moreover, at least some things that the authors think ought to be counted as conventions are going to get left out. Key Words: conventions • rules • Ruth Millikan • David Lewis.

    The Moral Development of Moral Philosophers.Martin Bunzl - 1977 - Journal of Moral Education 7 (1):3-8.
    Abstract Lawrence Kohlberg thinks that Utilitarianism and Rawls? theory of justice are formal elaborations of different stages in the psychological development of moral reasoning. He also thinks that there are psychological reasons to favour the stage of reasoning of which he thinks Rawls? theory is an elaboration, and he believes that these reasons are isomorphic with philosophical criteria of adequacy that are normally used in evaluating moral theories. I argue that if he is right, then Rawls? own arguments for the (...)

    Evolutionary Games Without Rationality?Martin Bunzl - 2002 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 32 (3):365-378.
    It is sometimes claimed that evolutionary game theory provides a basis fordoing without rationality. The author defends the thesis that on any plausibleconstrual of the assumptions underlying evolutionary game theory, it cannotprovide a plausible basis for deviations from rationality. But on any plausibleconstrual of rationality, evolutionary game theory cannot provide an alternativethat coincides with the outcomes dictated by considerations of rationality,either. Key Words: evolutionary game theory • game theory • rationality • Skyrms.

    A Causal Model for Causal Priority.Martin Bunzl - 1984 - Erkenntnis 21 (1):31 - 44.
    Recent attempts to fix the direction of causal priority without reference to the direction of temporal priority have begun with an analysis of the causal relation itself. I offer a method, based on causal modelling theory, designed to determine the direction of causal priority while remaining as agnostic as possible about the nature of the causal relation.

    Scientific Abstraction and the Realist Impulse.Martin Bunzl - 1994 - Philosophy of Science 61 (3):449-456.
    In a series of important papers, A. Fine has developed and defended the view that the proper reading of scientific practice is neither realist nor antirealist. Instead, he argues that realism and antirealism both add something extra to a core position which is neither. In this discussion I reexamine his claim in the light of some criticisms. Fine's position contains an important insight, but to draw that point out requires shifting the way in which Fine poses the argument. I do (...)

    Meaning's Reach.Martin Bunzl - 1994 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 24 (3):267–280.
    What are the prospects for a realist account of meaning that is not in the head? This paper uses some case studies to demonstrate the difficulty that any such account faces is how to rule out letting an account of meaning in the head in through the back door. As illustrated, one way a cognitivist account can come back into the picture is by no way of appeals to ‘reasonableness’. Another is by way of questions of what is termed the‘reach’of (...)

  28. Buying Freedom: The Ethics and Economics of Slave Redemption.Kwame Anthony Appiah & Martin Bunzl (eds.) - 2007 - Princeton University Press.
    If "slavery" is defined broadly to include bonded child labor and forced prostitution, there are upward of 25 million slaves in the world today. Individuals and groups are freeing some slaves by buying them from their enslavers. But slave redemption is as controversial today as it was in pre-Civil War America. In Buying Freedom, Kwame Anthony Appiah and Martin Bunzl bring together economists, anthropologists, historians, and philosophers for the first comprehensive examination of the practical and ethical implications of slave redemption.
