    Jokes: Philosophical Thoughts on Joking Matters.Ted Cohen - 2001 - University of Chicago Press.
    Abe and his friend Sol are out for a walk together in a part of town they haven't been in before. Passing a Christian church, they notice a curious sign in front that says "$1,000 to anyone who will convert." "I wonder what that's about," says Abe. "I think I'll go in and have a look. I'll be back in a minute; just wait for me." Sol sits on the sidewalk bench and waits patiently for nearly half an hour. Finally, (...)

    Metaphor and the Cultivation of Intimacy.Ted Cohen - 1978 - Critical Inquiry 5 (1):3-12.
    I want to suggest a point in metaphor which is independent of the question of its cognitivity and which has nothing to do with its aesthetical character. I think of this point as the achievement of intimacy. There is a unique way in which the maker and the appreciator of a metaphor are drawn closer to one another. Three aspects are involved: the speaker issues a kind of concealed invitation; the hearer expends a special effort to accept the invitation; and (...)

    More on What We Say.Stanley Bates & Ted Cohen - 1972 - Metaphilosophy 3 (1):1–24.
    This article consists of two important parts. The first is a specific defense of some of the central claims made by stanley cavell in "must we mean what we say" against the criticisms of fodor and katz in "the availability of what we say." the major issue concerns the question of whether evidence of some sort is needed to support a claim by a native speaker about what we mean when we say something. Further speculations on this topic occupy the (...)

  7. Three Problems in Kant's Aesthetics.Ted Cohen - 2002 - British Journal of Aesthetics 42 (1):1-12.
    What does the faculty of Understanding do during the execution of a judgement of taste? How are singular judgements of beauty related to general judgements of beauty? For what reason is beauty the symbol of morality? The first question has a tentative answer, although one not obviously congenial to Kant. The second two questions have no compelling answers.

    Thinking of Others: On the Talent for Metaphor.Ted Cohen - 2008 - Princeton University Press.
    In Thinking of Others, Ted Cohen argues that the ability to imagine oneself as another person is an indispensable human capacity--as essential to moral awareness as it is to literary appreciation--and that this talent for identification is the same as the talent for metaphor. To be able to see oneself as someone else, whether the someone else is a real person or a fictional character, is to exercise the ability to deal with metaphor and other figurative language. The underlying faculty, (...)

    Reflexions on "Las Meninas": Paradox Lost.Joel Snyder & Ted Cohen - 1980 - Critical Inquiry 7 (2):429-447.
    Surely [John R.] Searle must rely on a stable, formal conception of the point of view. He sets Las Meninas on a par with the antimony of the liar and the paradoxes of set theory. But nothing is an antimony or a paradox just because it seems so or just because it is confusing or difficult, even if it seems so to everyone. To deserve such a description, a thing must be, so to speak, intrinsically intractable, not merely resistant when (...)

    Reflections On One Idea of Collingwood’s Aesthetics.Ted Cohen - 1989 - The Monist 72 (4):581-585.
    I first read Collingwood about 25 years ago, when The Principles of Art was a staple in classes in the philosophy of art, along with books by Santayana, Dewey, and Croce. Since then, all these books have lost currency among American philosophers of art, and not only among those who are “analytic” philosophers. The wholesale abandonment of the history of the subject which was a feature of work in the philosophy of art during the 1960’s and 1970’s is not a (...)

    Philosophy in America: Remarks on John McCumber's Time in the Ditch: American Philosophy and the McCarthy Era.Ted Cohen - 2002 - Philosophical Studies 108 (1-2):183 - 193.
    John McCumber is right to think that analytic philosophy has had a particularly central and dominating position in American philosophy, and that philosophy is less significant in American public life than in the public life of many European countries. I believe he is wrong to think that American philosophers have turned to analytical work in order to escape being politically relevant, and that he is wrong to suppose that prominent academic philosophy is something to wish for.
