  1. The Disappearance of Introspection.William E. Lyons - 1986 - MIT Press.
    William Lyons presents an original thesis on introspection as self-interpretation in terms of a culturally influenced model. His work rests on a lucid, careful, and critical examination of the transformations that have occurred over the past century in the concepts and models of introspection in philosophy and psychology. He reviews the history of introspection in the work of Wundt, Boring, and William James, and reactions to it by behaviorists Watson, Lashley, Ryle, and Skinner.

    Emotion.William Lyons - 1980 - Cambridge University Press.
    In this study William Lyons presents a sustained and coherent theory of the emotions, and one which draws extensively on the work of psychologists and physiologists in the area. Dr Lyons starts by giving a thorough and critical survey of other principal theories, before setting out his own 'causal-evaluative' account. In addition to giving an analysis of the nature of emotion - in which, Dr Lyon argues, evaluative attitudes play a crucial part - his theory throws light on the motivating (...)

    Approaches to Intentionality.William Lyons - 1995 - Oxford University Press UK.
    What is intentionality? Intentionality is a distinguishing characteristic of states of mind : that they are about things outside themselves. About this book: William Lyons explores various ways in which philosophers have tried to explain intentionality, and then suggests a new way. Part I of the book gives a critical account of the five most comprehensive and prominent current approaches to intentionality. These approaches can be summarised as the instrumentalist approach, derived from Carnap and Quine and culminating in the work (...)

  8. Conscience – an Essay in Moral Psychology.William Lyons - 2009 - Philosophy 84 (4):477-494.
    The ultimate aim of this essay is to suggest that conscience is a very important part of human psychology and of our moral point of view, not something that can be dismissed as merely ‘a part of Christian theology’. The essay begins with discussions of what might be regarded as the two most influential functional models of conscience, the classical Christian account of conscience and the Freudian account of conscience. Then, using some insights from these models, and from some comparatively (...)

    Freewill and Responsibility.William Lyons - 1980 - Philosophical Quarterly 30 (119):183.
    This reissue was first published in 1978. Anthony Kenny, one of the most distinguished philosophers in England, explores the notion of responsibility and the precise place of the mental element in criminal actions. Bringing the insights of recent philosophy of mind to bear on contemporary developments in criminal law, he writes with the general reader in mind, no specialist training in philosophy being necessary to appreciate his argument. Kenny shows that abstract distinctions drawn by analytic philosophers are relevant to decisions (...)

    Irish-Australian philosopher William Lyons is the author of the short films The Examination and The Letter. These are cinematographic manifestations of the author’s enterprise in communicating philosophical ideas beyond the formal conventions of professional philosophy. The present entry consists of an endearing and informative letter that Lyons enclosed with the films when he sent them to the editors of Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication upon their request. It is reproduced here verbatim as a preamble to the discussion (...)

    Intentionality and Modern Philosophical Psychology I: The Modern Reduction of Intentionality.William E. Lyons - 1990 - Philosophical Psychology 3 (2 & 3):247-69.
    In rounded terms and modem dress a theory of intentionality is a theory about how humans take in information via the senses and in the very process of taking it in understand it and, most often, make subsequent use of it in guiding human behaviour. The problem of intentionality in this century has been the problem of providing an adequate explanation of how a purely physical causal system, the brain, can both receive information and at the same time understand it, (...)

The modern reduction of intentionality,' (Philosophical Psychology, 3 (2), 1990) which examined the view of intentionality pioneered by Carnap and reaching its apotheosis in the work of Daniel Dennett. In 'Intentionality and modem philosophical psychology, II. The return to representation' (Philosophical Psychology, 4(1), 1991) I examined the approach to intentionality which can be traced back to the work of Noam Chomsky but which has been given its canonical treatment (...)

    Researching "The Mind".William Lyons - 2018 - Rivista Internazionale di Filosofia e Psicologia 9 (3):194-207.
    : The first section of this paper outlines the major theme, that “mind” is not the label of something unitary but of a collection of things that can only be revealed by research at three different levels. The first level of enquiry is the account of mind that can be gleaned from what is often referred to as our folk psychology. Even with its limitations, it is an indispensable part of our social interactions. The second section outlines how, with the (...)

    I want to attempt to analyze a forgotten area in the philosophy of emotions, the relations between physiological changes and the emotions. I want to do this: by first of all briefly setting out some distinctions necessary to the understanding of the position I will be arguing for, then by trying to elucidate what exactly is to be understood by the term ‘physiological change’ in the context of an emotion, by showing that particular physiological changes are not part of the (...)

In order to do this I will try and argue for the following:The term ‘motive’ should not be limited to contexts where we expect that the motivation does not fall within the standard range.The motive which is said to be behind an actual action (...)

    Just a hundred years ago Francis Herbert Bradley wrote the first edition of Ethical Studies, which alone is reason enough for considering once again this work which seems to have suffered such neglect in this century. Part of the reason for this neglect is no doubt the very difficulty of his writing. Like Hegel, from whom he took so much, Bradley makes little or no concessions to the reader and, at times at any rate, writes in a most inaccessible manner. (...)

    The Great Apostasy?: William Jamess 1904 Denial of the Existence of Consciousness.William Lyons - 2010 - Journal of Consciousness Studies 17 (9-10):9-10.
    This is an exegetical essay that traces the extraordinary journey made by William James, whereby from being regarded as one of the great nineteenth century psychological explorers of consciousness, he arrived in 1904 at a state of mind where, at least prima facie, he denied the very existence of consciousness. Along the way it examines the stages of this journey and investigates whether or not James actually came to deny the existence of consciousness. Then it reflects on the significance of (...)
