    Sport and the Àrtistic.S. K. Wertz - 1985 - Philosophy 60 (233):392 - 393.
    Recently David Best has advanced the claim that sport is not an art form, and that although sport may be aesthetic, it is not artistic. Such a claim is false and runs counter to ordinary usage and sport practice. On behalf of sport practice, let me cite as an example the world-class Canadian skater, Toller Cranston, who thinks there are such things as ‘artistic sports, those being gymnastics, diving, figure skating’. Best claims that athletes like Cranston are conceptually confused and (...)

    The Five Flavors and Taoism: Lao Tzu's Verse Twelve.S. K. Wertz - 2007 - Asian Philosophy 17 (3):251 – 261.
    In verse twelve of the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu makes a curious claim about the five flavors; namely that they cause people not to taste or that they jade the palate. The five flavors are: sweet, sour, salt, bitter and spicy or hot as in 'heat'. To the Western mind, the claim, 'The five flavors cause them [persons] to not taste,' is counterintuitive; on the contrary, the presence of the five flavors in a dish or in a meal would (...)

    Hume, History, and Human Nature.S. K. Wertz - 1975 - Journal of the History of Ideas 36 (3):481-496.
    This paper presents evidence and arguments against an interpretation of david Hume's idea of history which insists that he held to a static conception of human nature. This interpretation presumes that hume lacks a genuine historical perspective, and that consequently his notion of historiography contains a fallacy (viz., Of the universal man). It is shown here that this interpretation overlooks an important distinction between methodological and substantive uniformity in hume's discussion of human nature and action. When this distinction is appreciated, (...)

    Collingwood and Racial Considerations.S. K. Wertz - 2021 - Collingwood and British Idealism Studies 27 (1):99-115.
    R. G. Collingwood (1889–1943) had several arguments that analyzed race in history and anthropology. These appear mainly in Roman Britain (both in theory and practice of history), The Idea of History, and The Principles of History. This latter work, which is fairly new to Collingwood scholarship (1999), contains the most important arguments. Collingwood argued that race is grounded in the historical process and this includes a people's environment, more so than genetics or evolution. He used the nature of art as (...)

    Little White Lies.S. K. Wertz - 2018 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 32 (1):49-55.
    Samuel Johnson has an interesting comment on consequences and the telling of “white lies.” For example “Sick People and Children are often to be deceived for their Good.” David Hume apparently endorses this concept in one of his letters. Both Johnson and Rousseau anticipate Kant’s argument about consequences in that one is to tell the truth under all circumstances. Hume, I argue, would take issue with this claim in that there are cases that warrant telling white lies. Elsewhere he speaks (...)

    Hume's Narrow Circle Aesthetically Expanded.S. K. Wertz - 2017 - Journal of Aesthetic Education 51 (4):1-4.
    How does aesthetic education begin and expand over time? David Hume’s idea of the narrow circle provides us with an answer when considering this question. He uses the narrow circle to explain how moral practices evolve, and by analogy, we can also use this conception to explain how aesthetic practices evolve. So I will first of all begin with a discussion of his essay “The Standard of Taste.”1 In this essay, Hume gives an excellent profile of the critic who has (...)

    Food and the Association of Perceptions.S. K. Wertz - 2019 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 33 (2):295-304.
    It has long been claimed and supposedly substantiated that there exists an association of ideas, but not of perceptions. Collingwood echoed this claim from Hume, but Hume later in the Treatise produced an association of impressions, so he came close to Hobbes’s position: human physiology has “trains of sense” and these are carried on in human thought—what we call “ideas”. A strong case can be made for this claim when we examine the phenomenon of food. Concerning food, I explore Chinese (...)

    The Origin of the Justification of the Two-Wrongs Argument: A Conjecture.S. K. Wertz - 2000 - Informal Logic 20 (3).
    Different analyses of two-wrongs reasoning are presented and provide relief for the Groarke, Tindale, and Fisher analysis which is suggestive of the origin of this type of reasoning in Bentham and Mill. Aquinas's doctrine of double effect is entertained as a possible counterexample (which it is not). Two-wrongs reasoning can be either acceptable (reasonable) or unacceptable, and there are conditions that can be laid down for both situations in discourse. A negative version of the utilitarian principle assists us in understanding (...)

  27. Averting Arguments: Nagarjuna’s Verse 29.S. K. Wertz - 1998 - The Paideia Archive: Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 24:70-73.
    I examine Nagarjuna’s averting an opponent’s argument, Paul Sagal’s general interpretation of Nagarjuna and especially Sagal’s conception of "averting" an argument. Following Matilal, a distinction is drawn between locutionary negation and illocationary negation in order to avoid errant interpretations of verse 29 The argument is treated as representing an ampliative or inductive inference rather than a deductive one. As Nagarjuna says in verse 30: "That [denial] of mine [in verse 29] is a non-apprehension of non-things" and non-apprehension is the averting (...)

    Human Nature and Art: From Descartes and Hume to Tolstoy.S. K. Wertz - 1998 - Journal of Aesthetic Education 32 (3):75-81.
    Leo Tolstoy's theory of human nature is sketched with Descartes's and Hume's theories of human nature in the background for context. Tolstoy's view is limited to "What Is Art"?, although it could be substantially augmented by references to his other well-known works. "By words a man transmits his thoughts," to which Tolstoy adds, "by means of art he transmits his feelings." Language and art work together to give us an aesthetic education that is built around the forms of communication found (...)

    Revel’s Conception of Cuisine: Platonic or Hegelian.S. K. Wertz - 2000 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 14 (1):91-96.
    Jean-François Revel is the first philosopher to take food seriously and to offer a topology for food practices. He draws a distinction between different kinds of cuisine -- popular cuisine and erudite cuisine. With this distinction, he traces the evolution of food practices from the ancient Greeks and Romans, down through the Middle Ages, and into the Renaissance and the Modern Period. His contribution has been acknowledged by Deane Curtin who offers an interpretation of Revel’s conceptual scheme along Platonic lines. (...)

    Are Genetically Modified Foods Good for You? A Pragmatic Answer.S. K. Wertz - 2005 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 19 (1):129-137.
    A review of the arguments that make up the current controversy on genetically modified foods (GMFs) is briefly given as well as an assessment of their cogency. The two main arguments for GMFs are utilitarian (we can feed a greater number of people with them than without) and environmental (we can increase the food supply without diminishing the wilderness areas by displacing them with farm land). The arguments against evolve around the idea of unforeseen consequences which could have irreversible effects (...)
