    Conceptual Cognitive Organs: Toward an Historical-Materialist Theory of Scientific Knowledge.Siyaves Azeri - 2013 - Philosophia 41 (4):1095-1123.
    Scientific concepts and conceptual systems (theories) are particular forms of higher mental activity. They are cognitive organs that provide the ability of systematic cognition of phenomena, which are not available to the grasp of ordinary sense organs. They are tools of scientific “groping” of phenomena. Scientific concepts free perceptual and cognitive activity from determination of ordinary sense organs by providing a high degree of cognitive abstraction and generalization. Scientific cognition, like perceptual activity, is actualized by consciousness but outside the consciousness.

    Consciousness as Objective Activity: A Historical—Genetic Approach.Siyaves Azeri - 2011 - Science and Society 75 (1):8 - 37.
    Mental phenomena and consciousness can be located in sign and in language. Since these latter belong to the objective world of human interaction, consciousness emerges as a part of objectivity. A sign is the product of the interaction between consciousnesses. Thus, admitting the existence of the sign presumes the existence of action. Activity is a social phenomenon; thus, it is objective. It is the objectivization of human needs and desires as production and reproduction of these needs in society. Human consciousness (...)

    Hume's Social Theory of Memory.Siyaves Azeri - 2013 - Journal of Scottish Philosophy 11 (1):53-68.
    Traditionally, Hume's account of memory is considered an individualist-atomic representational theory. However, textual evidence suggests that Hume's account is better seen as a first attempt to create a social theory of memory that considers social context, custom and habits, language, and logical structures as constitutive elements of memory.

    Hume’s Theory of Social Constitution of the Self.Siyaves Azeri - 2019 - Filozofija I Društvo 30 (4):511-534.
    Hume distinguishes between the self of thought and imagination and the self of the passions. He is criticized for contradicting himself as he allegedly attributes fictitiousness to the self in book one of the Treatise but later reintroduces the self in books two and three. Hume?s account of the idea of the self, however, is not contradictory: he shows the impossibility of a pure associationist-empiricist account of the self. Instead, he proposes a social account of the constitution of the idea (...)

    The Match of ‘Ideals’: The Historical Necessity of the Interconnection Between Mathematics and Physical Sciences.Siyaves Azeri - 2020 - Social Epistemology 35 (1):20-36.
    The problem of ‘applicability’ of mathematics to modern physical sciences has been labeled as an ‘unreasonably effective’ and unexplainable ‘miracle’ by prominent physicists such as Eugene Wigner a...
