  • Anti-symmetry and non-extensional mereology 

    Cotnoir, Aaron (2010-04) - Journal article
    I examine the link between extensionality principles of classical mereology and the anti-symmetry of parthood. Varzi’s most recent defence of extensionality depends crucially on assuming anti-symmetry. I examine the notions ...
  • Aristotle and Lukasiewicz on existential import 

    Read, Stephen (2015) - Journal article
    Jan Lukasiewicz's treatise on Aristotle's Syllogistic, published in the 1950s, has been very influential in framing contemporary understanding of Aristotle's logical systems. However, Lukasiewicz's interpretation is based ...
  • Cut-elimination, substitution and normalisation 

    Dyckhoff, Roy (Springer, 2015) - Book item
    We present a proof (of the main parts of which there is a formal version, checked with the Isabelle proof assistant) that, for a G3-style calculus covering all of intuitionistic zero-order logic, with an associated term ...
  • Does universalism entail extensionalism? 

    Cotnoir, Aaron (2016-03) - Journal article
    Does a commitment to mereological universalism automatically bring along a commitment to the controversial doctrine of mereological extensionalism — the view that objects with the same proper parts are identical? A recent ...
  • Generic truth and mixed conjunctions : some alternatives 

    Cotnoir, Aaron (2009-07) - Journal article
  • Inconsistent boundaries 

    Weber, Z.; Cotnoir, A.J. (2014-12) - Journal article
    Mereotopology is a theory of connected parts. The existence of boundaries, as parts of everyday objects, is basic to any such theory; but in classical mereotopology, there is a problem: if boundaries exist, then either ...
  • Less cognitive conflict does not imply choice of the default option : Commentary on Kieslich and Hilbig (2014) 

    Myrseth, Kristian Ove; Wollbrant, Conny (2015-05) - Journal item
    Kieslich and Hilbig (2014) employ a mouse-tracking technique to measure decision conflict in social dilemmas. They report that defectors exhibit more conflict than do cooperators. They infer that cooperation thus is the ...
  • Miller, Bradwardine and the Truth 

    Read, Stephen (2011-06) - Journal article
    In his article "Verdades antiguas y modernas" (in the same issue, pp. 207-27), David Miller criticised Thomas Bradwardine’s theory of truth and signification and my defence of Bradwardine’s application of it to the semantic ...
  • A neglected resolution of Russell's paradox of propositions 

    Uzquiano, Gabriel (2015-06) - Journal article
    Bertrand Russell offered an influential paradox of propositions in Appendix B of "The Principles of Mathematics", but there is little agreement as to what to conclude from it. We suggest that Russell’s paradox is best ...
  • Non-wellfounded mereology 

    Cotnoir, Aaron; Bacon, Andrew (2012-06) - Journal article
    This paper is a systematic exploration of non-wellfounded mereology. Motivations and applications suggested in the literature are considered. Some are exotic like Borges’ Aleph, and the Trinity; other examples are less so, ...
  • On simultaneous local dimension functions of subsets of Rd 

    Olsen, Lars Ole Ronnow (2015-09-30) - Journal article
    For a subset E ⊑ Rd and x ∈ Rd, the local Hausdorff dimension function of E at x and the local packing dimension function of E at x are defined by (Formula presented.) where dimH and dimP denote the Hausdorff dimension and ...
  • Property identities and modal arguments 

    Ball, Derek Nelson (2011-11) - Journal article
    Many physicalists about the mind are committed to claims about property identities. Following Kripke's well-known discussion, modal arguments have emerged as major threats to such claims. This paper argues that modal ...
  • Recombination and paradox 

    Uzquiano, Gabriel (2015-08) - Journal article
  • Semantic pollution and syntactic purity 

    Read, Stephen (2015-12) - Journal article
    Logical inferentialism claims that the meaning of the logical constants should be given, not model-theoretically, but by the rules of inference of a suitable calculus. It has been claimed that certain proof-theoretical ...
  • Solvitur Ambulando. Meaning-constitutive Principles and the Inscrutability of Inference 

    Pedriali, Walter B. (King's College Publications, 2012) - Book item
  • Some remarks on proof-theoretic semantics 

    Dyckhoff, Roy (Springer, 2016) - Book item
    This is a tripartite work. The first part is a brief discussion of what it is to be a logical constant, rejecting a view that allows a particular self-referential “constant” • to be such a thing in favour of a view that ...
  • Tangible temptation in the social dilemma: Cash, cooperation, and self-control 

    Myrseth, Kristian Ove; Riener, Gerhard; Wollbrant, Conny (2015-06) - Journal article
    The social dilemma may involve a within-person conflict, between urges to act selfishly and better judgment to cooperate. Examining the proposition from the perspective of temptation, we pair the public good game with ...
  • True, false, paranormal, and 'designated'? : a reply to Jenkins 

    Caret, Colin Ready; Cotnoir, Aaron (2008-07) - Journal article
  • Universalism and junk 

    Cotnoir, A.J. (2014) - Journal article
    Those who accept the necessity of mereological universalism face what has come to be known as the junk argument due to Bohn [2009], which proceeds from (i) the incompatibility of junk with universalism and (ii) the possibility ...
  • Validity for strong pluralists 

    Cotnoir, Aaron (2013-05) - Journal article
