    Mental Transformation Skill in Young Children: The Role of Concrete and Abstract Motor Training.Susan C. Levine, Susan Goldin‐Meadow, Matthew T. Carlson & Naureen Hemani‐Lopez - 2018 - Cognitive Science 42 (4):1207-1228.
    We examined the effects of three different training conditions, all of which involve the motor system, on kindergarteners’ mental transformation skill. We focused on three main questions. First, we asked whether training that involves making a motor movement that is relevant to the mental transformation—either concretely through action or more abstractly through gestural movements that represent the action —resulted in greater gains than training using motor movements irrelevant to the mental transformation. We tested children prior to training, immediately after training, (...)

    Logic and the Structure of the Web of Belief.Matthew Carlson - 2015 - Journal for the History of Analytical Philosophy 3 (5).
    In this paper, I examine Quine's views on the epistemology of logic. According to Quine's influential holistic account, logic is central in the “web of belief” that comprises our overall theory of the world. Because of this, revisions to logic would have devastating systematic consequences, and this explains why we are loath to make such revisions. In section1, I clarify this idea and thereby show that Quine actually takes the web of belief to have asymmetrical internal structure. This raises two (...)

    Public Opinion on the Role of Religion in Political Leadership: A Multi-Level Analysis of Sixty-Three Countries.Matthew Carlson & Ola Listhaug - 2006 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 7 (3):251-271.
    Are there significant variations across major religious faiths about the proper political roles of religion? Using recent WorldValues/EuropeanValues data from 63 countries we study the attitudes of mass publics on two separate aspects of this question. First, should religious beliefs be used as a criterion for selecting political leaders (dimension I)? Second, should religious leaders use their position for political influence (dimension II)? For dimension I we find that Muslims are somewhat more likely than followers of other faiths and denominations (...)

    Public Opinion on Dimensions of Governance in East Asia: An Analysis of Citizen and Expert Evaluations.Matthew Carlson - 2007 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 8 (3):285-303.
    In recent years, institutional financial institutions such as the World Bank have taken a keen interest in the links between governance and economic development in East Asia and in other regions of the world. However, the concept of governance has proven difficult to measure in cross-national studies and its meaning in the minds of citizens and experts may differ noticeably. This article examines elite and mass perceptions of governance using the World Governance Indicators developed by scholars affiliated with the World (...)

    Charmed by China? Popular Perceptions of Chinese Influence in Asia.Travis Nelson & Matthew Carlson - 2012 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 13 (4):477-499.
    Chinese influence in Asia is complicated by many factors. There are those who argue that China's growing military and economic power make this influence an automatic threat, while others maintain that China's recent attempts at a mute this threat and have succeeded in creating a positive image for many of its regional neighbors. Drawing on survey data collected across 23 countries, we enter this debate by asking what individuals in and across Asia think about Chinese influence. Do they see this (...)
