Raphael Sassower [83]R. Sassower [12]
  1. The Politics of Situating Knowledge: An Exercise in Social Epistemology. [REVIEW]Raphael Sassower - 1994 - Argumentation 8 (2):185-198.
    This essay forges links between Popperians and feminists by considering the connections between Donna Haraway's “situated knowledge” and Karl R. Popper's “situational logic.” It is concerned with the political commitments behind methodological issues, with the degree to which there can be a Popperian contribution to the feminist vision of a successor science, and with ways of dealing with, while not resolving, the political differences between socialist feminists and libertarian Popperians.

    Review Essay: Is Homo Economics Extinct?R. Sassower - 2010 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 40 (4):603-615.
    The classical view of "rational man" as the unit of analysis for economic behavior and marketplace exchange has been changed by the late twentieth century with the help of behavioral economics that considers predictable irrationality as a normal mode of behavior. Instead of revising neoclassical economics to fit contemporary economic crises, it is recommended to follow Adam Smith's original concerns for the social setting of individual behavior and to treat economic crises with pragmatic flexibility rather than with dogmatic ideology.

  9. Ethical Choices in Contemporary Medicine: Integrative Bioethics.Raphael Sassower - 2007 - Acumen Publishing.
    "Ethical Choices in Contemporary Medicine" jettisons the standard medical ethics models of "rights" language and shows how the bioethical problems that receive attention from the media and the public are related to and are explicable in terms of the epistemological foundations of science and medicine. These epistemological concerns include how medical knowledge is established , how medical protocols are administered , how medical certainty is evaluated and medical responsibility is framed , and how medical knowledge is transmitted and how medical (...)

    Avoiding the Posts: Reply to Friedman.Raphael Sassower & Joseph Agassi - 1994 - Critical Review 8 (1):95-111.
    The ill?named debate between postmodernists and postlibertarians should be transcended; this requires the abandonment of both foundationalism and its converse, without abandoning common sense as well (which is no mean trick). Similarly, the debate over ?minimal statism? versus the planned economy is outdated. Instead of claiming to be in possession of foundations of our scientific?cum?political knowledge in broad terms, and instead of severely limiting our knowledge to given proofs, we offer the putative heuristics of critique in general and the critical (...)

    Beyond Medical Ethics: New Directions for Philosophy and Medicine.Raphael Sassower & Michael A. Grodin - 1988 - Journal of Medical Humanities 9 (2):121-134.
    A unique relationship exists between physicians and philosophers — one that expands on the constructive potential of the liaison between physicians and, for example, theologians, on the one hand, or, social workers on the other. This liaison should focus in the scientific aspects of medicine, not just the ethical aspects. Philosophers can provide physicians with a perspective on both the philosophy and the history of medicine through the ages — a sense of how medicine has adapted to the social cultural (...)

    Joseph Agassi's themes in this piece relate to the importance of science and technology in the modern world, the interaction between science and technology, the interrelation between science and culture, the political dimension of science in a democracy, the improvement on the Popperian project in the methodology of science (shifting gears to pluralistic critical rationalism), and the philosophical elements that inform science as well as being informed by science. Key Words: science • scientism • methodology of science • Popper • (...)

    Responsible Technoscience: The Haunting Reality of Auschwitz and Hiroshima.Raphael Sassower - 1996 - Science and Engineering Ethics 2 (3):277-290.
    Auschwitz and Hiroshima stand out as two realities whose uniqueness must be reconciled with their inevitability as outcomes of highly rationalized processes of technoscientific progress. Contrary to Michael Walzer’s notion of “double effect”, whereby unintended consequences and the particular uses to which warfare may lead remain outside the moral purview of scientists, this paper endorses the commitment of the Society for Social Responsibility in Science to argue that members of the technoscientific community are always responsible for their work and the (...)

    The Refuge of the Academy: Response to Socrates Tenured.Raphael Sassower - 2018 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 48 (1):63-70.
    In response to and as an elaboration on Robert Frodeman and Adam Briggle’s Socrates Tenured, I wish to recognize the notion of practical philosophers as both public intellectuals and as those who may find refuge in the academy in order to shed the pretense of expertise, on the one hand, and the esoteric engagement with topics irrelevant to the affairs of contemporary culture, on the other.

    Review Essay: Reconstructing Epistemology.Raphael Sassower - 2007 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 37 (2):242-247.
    Though postmodernists, like Barbara Herrnstein Smith, seem to hold onto some epistemological and perhaps even metaphysical divide between the rationalists and all others (sometimes referred to as irrationalists), there is much more to gain when considering the overlapping similarities and common origins of different traditions or outlooks. In this way, a critical dialogue is more probable and could lead to more fruitful results. Key Words: Fleck • Popper • Epistemology • postmodernism.
