    The Rationality of the Copernican Revolution.Martin V. Curd - 1982 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1982:3 - 13.
    The claim that even in 1543 the Copernican theory was objectively superior to the Ptolemaic theory is explained and defended. The question is then raised concerning the relevance of this insight for our understanding of the rationality of the Copernican revolution. It is proposed that (a) the decision to reject the Ptolemaic theory first became clearly rational early in the 17th century as a result of Galileo's observations of the phases of Venus, and (b) the decision to accept the Copernican (...)

    Between Orthodoxy and the Enlightenment: Jean-Robert Chouet and the Introduction of Cartesian Science in the Academy of Geneva.Martin Curd - 1985 - Review of Metaphysics 39 (2):360-361.
    This is an excellent book on a limited topic, displaying meticulous scholarship in its use of primary sources and shrewd judgment in its interpretation of facts. It makes a small but valuable contribution to our understanding of the relationships between Calvinist theology, Cartesian philosophy and the "new science"' in the 17th century, and the mechanisms by which science became an established part of Enlightenment society and education.

    Freedom From Necessity: The Metaphysical Basis of Responsibility. [REVIEW]Martin Curd - 1989 - Review of Metaphysics 42 (3):608-609.
    The aim of this book is to defend compatibilism against incompatibilism by exploring the metaphysical issues that lie at the heart of the debate between them. Berofsky defines incompatibilism as the doctrine that an agent is morally responsible for an action only if that particular action is not determined. Thus, regardless of the truth of determinism, that is, regardless of whether or not all events and actions are determined, the key question is: Can an agent be morally responsible for an (...)

    Morality and Moral Theory: A Reappraisal and Reaffirmation.Martin Curd - 1993 - Review of Metaphysics 46 (4):856-857.
    The book is divided into two parts. Each part is about eighty pages, followed by nearly fifty pages of notes and a comprehensive bibliography. Morality is reappraised in Part 1 and reaffirmed in Part 2. The aim of Part 1 is to articulate a conception of morality and moral theory that combines elements from act-based and virtue-based approaches, with the latter taking the lead. Part 2 defends moral theory against the criticisms of "antitheorists," a diverse group that includes Annette Baier, (...)

  14. Miracles as Violations of Laws of Nature.Martin Curd - 1996 - In Faith, Freedom, and Rationality: Philosophy of Religion Today. Rowman & Littlefield.
    Some philosophers have argued that miracles cannot occur because it is impossible for an event to violate a law of nature. This paper examines three attempts (by W.L. Rowe, N. Smart, and R. Swinburne) to refute this argument. It concludes that none of them is successful if one wants to use the law-violating character of alleged miracles as evidence for God’s existence and nature.

    Some Inconclusive Reasons Against 'Conclusive Reasons'.Martin Curd - 1983 - Philosophy Research Archives 9:293-302.
    In, “Some Conclusive Reasons Against ‘Conclusive Reasons’”, Pappas and Swain have criticized Dretske’s theory that conclusive reasons are necessary for knowledge. In their view this condition is too strong. They attempt to show this by means of two purported counterexamples: the cup-hologram case and the generator case. This paper defends Dretske’s analysis against these challenges.
