  1. Ethical Absolutism and the Ideal Observer.Roderick Firth - 1951 - Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 12 (3):317-345.
    The moral philosophy of the first half of the twentieth century, at least in the English-speaking part of the world, has been largely devoted to problems of an ontological or epistemological nature. This concentration of effort by many acute analytical minds has not produced any general agreement with respect to the solution of these problems; it seems likely, on the contrary, that the wealth of proposed solutions, each making some claim to plausibility, has resulted in greater disagreement than ever before, (...)

  18. Austin and the Argument From Illusion.Roderick Firth - 1964 - Philosophical Review 73 (July):372-382.
    Firth argues that austin's criticisms of the argument from illusion do not destroy the argument. We can reformulate it in two ways so that it succeeds as a method of ostensibly defining terms denoting the sensory constituent of perceptual experience. One way maintains the act-Object distinction of the cartesian tradition and the other uses the language of "looks." (staff).

    Reply to Sellars.Roderick Firth - 1981 - The Monist 64 (1):91-101.
    Sellars discusses a wide variety of philosophical problems in his Carus Lectures, and everything he has to say about those problems deserves very careful attention. But it seems appropriate for me to confine my remarks to his first lecture, which he calls “The Lever of Archimedes.” He pays me the compliment of taking as a starting point for this lecture a paper of mine, “Coherence, Certainty, and Epistemic Priority,” published by The Journal of Philosophy in 1964. Although the paper deals (...)

    Comments on Mr. Hempel's Theses.Roderick Firth, Wilfrid Sellars, Roderick M. Chisholm & Paul Weiss - 1952 - Review of Metaphysics 5 (4):622 - 627.
    2. Because of the possibility of lies, or the misuse of language, I believe that Professor Hempel's formulation of the problem of empirical certainty must be interpreted as a convenient abbreviation, in linguistic terms, of a question about beliefs. A complete formulation of the question would have to make some reference to the speaker's beliefs as he utters an "experiential statement.".

    Comments on Taylor's Theses.Roderick Firth, Richard B. Brandt, Carl G. Hempel, Roderick M. Chisholm & Donald Walhout - 1954 - Review of Metaphysics 7 (4):681 - 689.
    1. If Taylor's first two proposals are accepted, we must introduce a term to replace "know" in a familiar, but weaker, sense of the word. In ordinary speech it is correct to say that I know that p, even if my conviction that p might be somewhat increased by further evidence. In Taylor's stronger sense of "know" and "knowledge," it is doubtful that we have much, if any, knowledge. For even if we sometimes have evidence which is conclusive, and which (...)
