  • Actions, Habits and Constitution 

    Pollard, Bill (Blackwells, 2006)
    In this paper I offer a critique of the view made popular by Davidson that rationalization is a species of causal explanation, and propose instead that in many cases the explanatory relation is constitutive. Given ...
  • Artificial Intelligence and The Many Faces of Reason 

    Clark, Andy (Blackwells, 2003)
    I shall focus this discussion on one small thread in the increasingly complex weave of Artificial Intelligence and Philosophy of Mind: the attempt to explain how rational thought is mechanically possible. This is, historically, ...
  • Auditory Perception and Sounds 

    Nudds, Matthew (2007)
    It is a commonly held view that auditory perception functions to tell us about sounds and their properties. In this paper I argue that this common view is mistaken and that auditory perception functions to tell us about ...
  • "Author's Reply" to symposium on Natural-Born Cyborgs. 

    Clark, Andy (2006-06-28)
    Thought happens. Here I sit, sipping coffee, scribbling on paper, accessing files, reading and re-reading those four wonderful, challenging, yet immaculately constructive reviews. And somewhere, and to my eternal surprise, ...
  • Author's Response: Relational Learning Re-examined 

    Clark, Andy; Thornton, Chris (Cambridge University Press,, 1997)
  • Beyond The Flesh: Some Lessons from a Mole Cricket 

    Clark, Andy (2006-06-28)
    What do linguistic symbols do for minds like ours, and how (if at all) can basic embodied, dynamical and situated approaches do justice to high-level human thought and reason? These two questions are best addressed together, ...
  • Blackburn's Ruling Passions: A Partial Reply 

    Pollard, Bill (University of Durham Department of Philosophy, 1998)
    Ruling Passions is Simon Blackburn’s latest attempt to defend a theory of practical reason which he calls “expressivism”.2 In the first three chapters Blackburn outlines an account of how we should understand statements ...
  • Bringing the Cognitive Estimation Task into the 21st Century: Normative Data on Two New Parallel Forms 

    MacPherson, Sarah, E.; Wagner, Gabriela Peretti; Murphy, Patrick; Bozzali, Marco; Cipolotti, Lisa; Shallice, Tim (PLOS One, 2014-03-26)
    The Cognitive Estimation Test (CET) is widely used by clinicians and researchers to assess the ability to produce reasonable cognitive estimates. Although several studies have published normative data for versions of the ...
  • Bueno and Colyvan on Yablo’s Paradox 

    Ketland, Jeffrey (Blackwells, 2004)
    This is a response to a paper “Paradox without satisfaction”, Analysis 63, 152-6 (2003) by Otavio Bueno and Mark Colyvan on Yablo’s paradox. I argue that this paper makes several substantial mathematical errors which vitiate ...
  • Can a Many-Valued Language Functionally Represent its own Semantics? 

    Ketland, Jeffrey (Blackwells, 2003)
    Tarski’s Indefinability Theorem can be generalized so that it applies to many-valued languages. We introduce a notion of strong semantic self-representation applicable to any (sufficiently rich) interpreted many-valued ...
  • A Case Where Access Implies Qualia? 

    Clark, Andy (2000)
  • Cognitive Complexity and the Sensorimotor Frontier 

    Clark, Andy; (The Aristotelian Society and The Mind Association, 2006)
    What is the relation between perceptual experience and the suite of sensorimotor skills that enable us to act in the very world we perceive? The relation, according to ‘sensorimotor models’ (O’Regan and Noe¨ 2001, ...
  • The Cognizer's Innards: a Philosophical and Psychological Perspective on the Development of Thought 

    Clark, Andy; Karmiloff-Smith, Annette (Basil Blackwell, 1993)
  • Commentary on J.K O’Regan and A Noe: A sensorimotor account of vision and visual consciousness 

    Clark, Andy; Toribio, Josefa (2001)
    O'Regan and Noe present a wonderfully detailed and comprehensive defense of a position whose broad outline we absolutely and unreservedly endorse. They are right, it seems to us, to stress the intimacy of conscious content ...
  • Connectionism, Competence, and Explanation 

    Clark, Andy (Oxford University Press, 1990)
    A competance model describes the abstract structure of a solution to some problem, or class of problems, facing the would be intelligent system. Competance modles can be quite detailed, specifying far more than merely the ...
  • Connectionism, Moral Cognition, and Collaborative Problem Solving 

    Clark, Andy (MIT Press, 1996)
    How should linguistically formulated moral principles figure in an account of our moral understanding and practice?
  • Conservativeness and translation-dependent T-schemes 

    Ketland, Jeffrey (Blackwells, 2000)
    Certain translational T-schemes of the form True(“f”) « f(f), where f(f) can be almost any translation you like of f, will be a conservative extension of Peano arithmetic. I have an inkling that this means something ...
  • Coupling, Constitution and the Cognitive Kind: A Reply to Adam and Aizawa 

    Clark, Andy (Ashgate, 2006)
    Adams and Aizawa, in a series of recent and forthcoming papers ((2001), (In Press), (This Volume)) seek to refute, or perhaps merely to terminally embarrass, the friends of the extended mind. One such paper begins with the ...
  • Craig’s Theorem 

    Ketland, Jeffrey (Macmillan Reference USA, 2005)
    In mathematical logic, Craig’s Theorem (not to be confused with Craig’s Interpolation Theorem) states that any recursively enumerable theory is recursively axiomatizable. Its epistemological interest concerns its possible ...
  • Curing Cognitive Hiccups: A Defense of The Extended Mind 

    Clark, Andy (2007)
    Human cognitive processing, according to the Extended Mind Hypothesis may at times extend into the environment surrounding the organism. Such a view should be contrasted with a nearby, (but much more conservative) view ...
