    Wittgenstein über Zahlen.W. P. Mendonça - 1991 - Grazer Philosophische Studien 39 (1):127-153.
    Die Kritik des späten Wittgenstein am logizistischen Programm zur Begründung der Mathematik, vor allem im Blick auf die Definition der Zahl als Klasse von Klassen, und die darauf gegründete Explikation des Sinnes arithmetischer Sätze wird systematisch rekonstruiert. Entgegen einer verbreiteten Auffassung zeigen die Analysen Wittgensteins, daß Frege und Russell den Zahlbegriff nicht auf den „grundlegenderen" Begriff der eineindeutigen Zuordnung „reduzieren". Entsprechend sind Zahlen nicht mehr als durch Abstraktion erreichbare, echte Eigenschaften von Klassen zu verstehen, sondern als Formen oder Möglicfikeiten, die (...)

    Causas Excludentes.André Fuhrmann & Wilson Mendonça - 2000 - Principia: An International Journal of Epistemology 4 (2):257-276.
    We defend J. Kim's principle of explanatory exclusion from a recent criticism advanced by A Marras. We show that the principle follows from a less controversial principle of causal exclusion together with the assumption that claims of explanation are factual. We resolve the tension produced by Marras' argument by drawing a distinction between causal and explanatory relevance. In cross-level explanations the explanans property is not causally but explanatorily relevant to the explanandum. This calls for an account of how explanatorily relevant (...)

    Fisicismo Não-Reducionista: Uma atitude sem conteúdo congnitivo? Sobre o desafio de Bas Van Fraassen.W. Mendonça - 2007 - Principia: An International Journal of Epistemology 11 (2):171-186.
    De acordo com a concepção dominante de causação, eventos espácio-temporalmente localizáveis que podem ser designados por termos singulares e descrições definidas são os únicos relata genuínos da relação causal. Isto dá apoio e é apoiado pela dicotomia aceita entre a explicação causal, concebida como uma relação intensional entre fatos ou verdades, e a relação natural e extensional da causação. O ensaio questiona este modo de ver e argumenta pela legitimidade da noção de causação por fatos: os relata de muitas relações (...)

    A ideia intuitivamente plausível de que pelo menos alguns de nossos estados mentais teriam aspectos fenomenais qualitativos aos quais nós teríamos um acesso cognitivo privilegiado é considerada por muitos filósofos como incompatível com a ontologia fisicista. Alguns defensores radicais do fisicismo preferem simplesmente negar a existência de aspectos qualitativos, ao passo que outros materialistas procuram reinterpretar a cognição do caráter fenomenal da nossa experiência do mundo como a aquisição de uma habilidade, isto é, como uma forma de know-how , em (...)

    Zur Möglichkeit Kognitiver Psychologie Aus Wittgensteinscher Sicht.W. P. Mendonça - 1987 - Journal for General Philosophy of Science / Zeitschrift für Allgemeine Wissenschaftstheorie 18 (1-2):183-203.
    Summary After having given an account of the current methodological debates about psychology I discuss Ryle's arguments which play an important role in this debate. Following Jerry Fodor's formulation of the cognitive psychology's programme I assess critically his claims from a Wittgensteinian perspective. Contrary to the interpretation of some Wittgensteinians it turns out that this programme contains a justifiable core.

    Supervenience and the Problem of Downward Causation.Wilson Mendonça - 2002 - Manuscrito 25 (3):251-270.
    It seems that higher-level, nonbasic properties can only manifest their causal powers by exerting causal influence on lower-level, physically basic phenomena in the first place. A very influential line of reasoning conceives of this form of downward causation as either reducible to causation by physical properties or as ultimately untenable, because incompatible with the causal closure of physical reality. The paper argues that this is not so. It examines, first, why it is that a recent attempt by Noordhof to substantiate (...)

    Intelligence artificielle et signification. À propos des limites et des possibilitées des sciences cognitives.W. P. Mendonça - 1990 - Philosophiques 17 (1):3-19.
    L'auteur distingue, dans les.travaux sur l'intelligence artifi- cielle, deux approches : l'approche technologique et l'approche cognitiviste. Il montre que les rapprochements faits, dans l'approche cognitiviste, entre l'intelligence humaine et l'intelligence artificielle, ne vont pas de soi, et que les thèses sur l'intelligence artificielle sont largement tributaires de certaines spéculations rationalistes et empi- ristes de la philosophie classique. Il expose la principale difficulté que rencontre alors une compréhension de l'intelligence humaine à partir de l'approche cognitiviste, à savoir la nécessité d'oblitérer la (...)

    Abstrakte Sinnesphysiologie AlS Spekulative Philosophie.W. P. Mendonça - 1989 - Journal for General Philosophy of Science / Zeitschrift für Allgemeine Wissenschaftstheorie 20 (2):303-316.
    It is argued that the theories of the modern cognitive psychology of perception and recognition show, under rigorous logical analysis, the same problems which arise in the philosophical theories of knowledge of Descartes and Locke and lead to relativistic and solipsistic consequences. Through examination of the approachs of D. Sanders, E. B. Goldstein and J. Fodor it is shown that the perceptible world in these theories dissolves in internal representations so that despite its realistic starting-point modern cognitive psychology runs into (...)

    The claim that at least some of our mental states have qualitative, phenomenal features to which we have privileged cognitive access is intuitively plausible. Nevertheless, the claim is considered by many philosophers to be incompatible with a physicalist ontology. Some radical physicalists prefer simply to deny the existence of the qualitative character of our mental states, whereas other physicalists try to reinterpret the knowledge of the phenomenal character of our experience as the acquisition of an ability, i.e., as a sort (...)
