  1. Getting It: On Jokes and Art.Steven Burns & Alice MacLachlan - 2004 - AE: Journal of the Canadian Society of Aesthetics 10.
    “What is appreciation?” is a basic question in the philosophy of art, and the analogy between appreciating a work of art and getting a joke can help us answer it. We first propose a subjective account of aesthetic appreciation (I). Then we consider jokes (II). The difference between getting a joke and not, or what it is to get it right, can often be objectively articulated. Such explanations cannot substitute for the joke itself, and indeed may undermine the very power (...)

    Doing Business with the Gods.Steven A. M. Burns - 1985 - Canadian Journal of Philosophy 15 (2):311 - 325.
    Plato's Euthyphro is a dialogue about the virtue of piety. It is also one of the aporetic dialogues, ending in apparent failure to discover what piety is. It is common to understand the dialogue as teaching lessons about other things, about definition, for instance, or about the logic of refutation. About piety, however, it is thought to teach us only negatively, showing a few of the many things which piety is not.My thesis, on the contrary, is that there is a (...)

    J.F.M. Hunter, “Essays After Wittgenstein”.Steven Burns - 1975 - Dialogue 14 (2):341-353.
    Already known for his penetrating, and sometimes idiosyncratic, interpretations of the later Wittgenstein, John Hunter, of University College, Toronto, now offers eight essays on independent topics. Each of the essays stands on its own, but they are clearly the work of a single mind and together constitute a sustained contribution to current discussion of that area of metaphysics sometimes called philosophy of mind. Although the debts to, and the insight into, Wittgenstein are substantial, I do not wish to document them.

    Reason, Love and Laughter.Steven Burns - 1989 - Dialogue 28 (3):499-.
    Yes, this is the book that those who know Ronald de Sousa have been waiting for. Since long before his 1979 Dialogue article, there has been much interest in what de Sousa thinks about the rationality of emotions. Many promises are here fulfilled.In our traditional patriarchal philosophy, the standard view is that reason ought to be the controlling element in human nature. Commonly in this tradition, emotion is considered an opposing force—a female power allied with the irrational, and devoted to (...)

    The Humean Female.Steven Burns - 1976 - Dialogue 15 (3):415-424.
    Hume, despite his disapproval of societies which enslave women, admits females to 'the rights and privileges of society' only from 'humanity' and on the strength of their 'charms'. It is argued that hume's understanding of this inequality is based on the doctrine that different virtues–physical, moral and intellectual–are appropriate to the different sexes, and that in general it is males who are and deserve to be the proprietors of families.
