  1. Death and Destruction in Spinoza's Ethics.Wallace Matson - 1977 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 20 (1-4):403 – 417.
    An exposition of Spinoza's views of the cause and cure of death. He holds death to be disruption of mind/body which need not involve becoming a corpse; amnesia counts. It follows that his criterion of personal identity includes memory, so Spinozistic immortality is impersonal. The cause of death is always something external, for nothing can destroy itself. (This principle, however, is not universally true; Spinoza was led to it by mistaken physics.) Suicide is irrational. Fear of death is to be (...)

  3. Hegesias; the Death-Persuader; or, the Gloominess of Hedonism.Wallace I. Matson - 1998 - Philosophy 73 (4):553-557.
    Hegesias (3d c.BC), as hedonist, held that the sage will kill himself. For: One should pursue pleasure and avoid pain. But life is virtually certain to contain more pain than pleasure. Therefore death, which is neither pleasurable nor painful, is better than life. The flaw in the argument lies in the underlying game-theoretical model of life as a game in which play and payoff are distinct. Hegesias's conclusion, that life is not ‘worth living,’ is inescapable by any philosophy so based, (...)

    Spinoza’s Theory of Mind.Wallace I. Matson - 1971 - The Monist 55 (4):567-578.
    Spinoza has told us that knowledge of the union that the mind has with the whole of nature is the true and highest good. That union consists in the body’s being the object of the idea constituting the mind; or as stated slightly differently, the mind’s being the idea itself or the knowledge of the human body. If to interpret this cryptic pronouncement we appeal to the definition of idea as “a conception of the mind which the mind forms because (...)

    Socrates' Critique of Cognitivism: Wallace I. Matson and Adam Leite.Wallace I. Matson - 1991 - Philosophy 66 (256):145-167.
    Ethics and lexicography would seem, prima facie , to have little to do with each other. Yet Aristotle testifies that Socrates pursued both: Socrates was busying himself about ethical matters and neglecting the world of nature as a whole but seeking the universal in these ethical matters, and fixed thought for the first time on definitions. Socrates occupied himself with the excellences of character, and in connection with them became the first to raise the problem of universal definitions.

    Zombies Begone! Against Chalmers' Mind/Brain Dualism.Wallace Matson - 2003 - Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal 24 (1):123-136.
    Like Berkeley’s Three Dialogues, David Chalmers’ now celebrated book makes for a good read as it leads us down the garden path. It is written with a like enthusiasm, and for the most part in a clear and forthright style. The author is not afraid of candidly drawing the consequences of his contentions. He takes consciousness seriously, according to his lights. And one must admire his insouciance in printing the Calvin & Hobbes cartoon strip that pulls the rug out from (...)

    The Expiration of Morality*: WALLACE I. MATSON.Wallace I. Matson - 1994 - Social Philosophy and Policy 11 (1):159-178.
    Has Alexander Pope's prediction, made a quarter of a millennium ago , come true in our own day? No one who has lived through the last thirty years is unaware of the spectacular alterations of behavior norms that have occurred in most Western societies. It is not merely that everywhere incivility and crime are on the increase, that there are more and more violations of moral standards which nevertheless continue to be acknowledged. Rather, we witness the relaxation or disappearance of (...)
