    Kripke, rigid designators, and cartesian dualism.Robert J. Titiev - 1974 - Philosophical Studies 26 (5-6):357 - 375.
    Aspects of kripke's recent work in philosophy are considered in connection with the formal approach he set forth over a decade ago regarding semantics for modal logic. An ambiguity is pointed out concerning kripke's intuitive test for rigid designators and it is argued that, Relative to an appropriate framework for considering actual and possible physical objects, Certain proper names fail to be rigid designators.

    Arbitrage and the Dutch Book Theorem.Robert Titiev - 1997 - Journal of Philosophical Research 22:477-482.
    Philosophical writing on probability theory includes a great many articles discussing relationships between rational behavior and an agent’s susceptibility to betting contexts where an overall loss is mathematically inevitable. What the dutch book theorem establishes is that this kind of susceptibility is a consequence of having betting ratios that are in violation of the Kolmogorov probability axioms. In this article it is noted that a general result to rule out arbitrage can be shown to yield the dutch book theorem as (...)

    Causal Troubles.Robert Titiev - 1995 - Journal of Philosophical Research 20:281-286.
    The focus of this article is upon just one particularly problematic condition among seven espoused by Honderich in A Theory of Determinism, where he sets forth a counterfactual theory of causality using certain kinds of nomic conditionals. Analysis of his fifth requirement shows it not only to be subject to a variety of counterexamples, but also to be in conflict with Honderich’s remarks about experimental testability in connection with claims expressed using nomic conditionals. Honderich has acknowledged that some fine tuning (...)

    Finiteness, Perception, and Two Contrasting Cases of Mathematical Idealization.Robert J. Titiev - 1998 - Journal of Philosophical Research 23:81-94.
    Idealization in mathematics, by its very nature, generates a gap between the theoretical and the practical. This article constitutes an examination of two individual, yet similarly created, cases of mathematical idealization. Each involves using a theoretical extension beyond the finite limits which exist in practice regarding human activities, experiences, and perceptions. Scrutiny of details, however, brings out substantial differences between the two cases, not only in regard to the roles played by the idealized entities, but also in regard to appropriate (...)

    Diagnosis of Ailing Belief Systems.Robert Titiev - 1993 - Journal of Philosophical Research 18:277-283.
    Beliefs about fair prices for betting arrangements can obviously vary depending upon how the contingencies are described, even though each of the different descriptions is correct. This sort of variation in beliefs on the part of an agent has been Iinked by Ramsey and Skyrms with the agent’s susceptibility to a dutch book situation involving some combination of bets on which there is a mathematically-guaranteed net loss as the overall outcome. Clarifying the nature of that Iinkage is the purpose of (...)
