    Metaphysical Realism and History.Norman Melchert - 1986 - Analysis 46 (1):36 - 38.
    Could an "ideal theory" be false? metaphysical realism requires an affirmative answer. The question has usually been discussed in terms of physical theory. I argue that if we shift ground to historical narrative, We can be virtually certain that some "ideal stories" not only "can" be false, But "will" be false. If this argument is correct, Metaphysical realism is almost certainly true.

    Hume's Appendix on Personal Identity.Norman Melchert - 1975 - Philosophy Research Archives 1:323-335.

Hume himself states them obscurely, and commentators have disagreed about what exactly it was that puzzled him. I offer reasons for thinking the sources of Hume’s retraction have not yet been understood, and propose a reading of the text of the Appendix which explains why he was dissatisfied.The key to the proper understanding of this text lies in two insufficiently appreciated facts: that, (...)

  17. Philosophical Conversations: A Concise Historical Introduction.Norman Melchert - 2008 - Oxford Uuniversity Press.
    This brief and engaging introductory text treats philosophy as a dramatic and continuous story--a conversation about humankind's deepest and most persistent concerns, in which students are encouraged to participate.

The book addresses the fundamental questions of human life: Who are we? What can we know? How should we (...)

  28. Who's to Say?: A Dialogue on Relativism.Norman Melchert - 1994 - Hackett Publishing Company.
    Arguments are examined, reexamined, challenged, and honed in this lively dialogue on relativism and objectivity. Topics considered include whether truth and goodness are matters determined by individual opinion; whether they are defined by cultures; whether a non-dogmatic form of relativism is viable; whether the objectivity of science escapes relativism; and pragmatism as an alternative to relativism. Designed to present beginning students with an introduction to the main arguments concerning relativism, this provocative dialogue also serves as a model for thinking clearly (...)
