    Deductive Scientific Explanation.Robert Ackermann - 1965 - Philosophy of Science 32 (2):155-167.
    In this paper, I shall examine attempts to furnish formal models for deductive scientific explanation. All such attempts have had certain defects. The most serious of these defects is to be found in the fact that the extant models seem to be formally restrictive in ways that do not allow any obvious generalization of their conditions which will encompass the full range of all those scientific explanations which must be considered plausible candidates for translation into deductive models.

    Inductive Simplicity.Robert Ackermann - 1961 - Philosophy of Science 28 (2):152-161.
    The fact that simplicity has been linked with induction by many philosophers of science, some of whom have proposed or supported criteria of “inductive simplicity,” means that the problem must be given some serious attention. I take “inductive simplicity” as a title, however, only by way of concession to these historical treatments, since it is precisely the burden of my paper to show that there is no such thing. So much for the conclusion. I shall spend the remainder of my (...)

    Nietzsche a Frenzied Look.Robert John Ackermann - 1990 - Univ of Massachusetts Press.
    This study challenges the common view that Nietzsche passed through several discrete periods of thought, each based upon a different set of values, and that his work can best be understood as a collection of isolated insights. Ackermann's textual analysis shows the underlying unity of Nietzsche's thought. Ackermann, offering an introduction to Nietzsche, also covers his main texts, such as The Birth of Tragedy, Thus Spake Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil and Human, All too Human.

    A Neglected Proposal Concerning Simplicity.Robert Ackermann - 1963 - Philosophy of Science 30 (3):228-235.
    This paper is intended to explore Jeffrey's proposal for the measurement of the simplicity of scientific laws. The first part is a sketch of Jeffreys' development of a view on simplicity, which will be followed by a discussion of what seem to be some rather crucial defects in the proposal as it stands. It will be suggested here that no plausible way of countering these defects seems available.

    An Alternative Free Will Defence.Robert Ackermann - 1982 - Religious Studies 18 (3):365 - 372.
    Many philosophers have written in the past as though it were nearly obvious to rational reflection that the existence of evil in this world is incompatible with the presumed properties of the Christian God, and they have assumed a proof of incompatibility to be easy to construct. An informal underpinning for this line of thought is easy to develop. Surely God in his benevolence finds evil to be evil, and hence has both the desire and the means, provided by his (...)

    Introduction to Many Valued Logics.Robert Ackermann - 1967 - New York: Dover Publications.
    Originally published in 1967. An introduction to the literature of nonstandard logic, in particular to those nonstandard logics known as many-valued logics. Part I expounds and discusses implicational calculi, modal logics and many-valued logics and their associated calculi. Part II considers the detailed development of various many-valued calculi, and some of the important metathereoms which have been proved for them. Applications of the calculi to problems in the philosophy are also surveyed. This work combines criticism with exposition to form a (...)
