    • The making of regional systems : the Tapajós/Madeira and Trombetas/Nhamundá regions in the lower Brazilian Amazon, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries 

      Harris, Mark (2018-10-01) - Journal article
      Building on Neil Whitehead’s work in northern South America, this article considers the formations of two different deep-forest regional networks. Though these Amerindian spaces have origins in the precolonial past, this ...
    • Memory, belief and time 

      Weatherson, Brian James (2016-01-08) - Journal article
      I argue that what evidence an agent has does not supervene on how she currently is. Agents do not always have to infer what the past was like from how things currently seem; sometimes the facts about the past are retained ...
    • Modality and paradox 

      Uzquiano, Gabriel (2015-04-06) - Journal article
      Philosophers often explain what could be the case in terms of what is, in fact, the case at one possible world or another. They may differ in what they take possible worlds to be or in their gloss of what is for something ...
    • Modeling pulse-like lip vibrations in brass instruments 

      Kemp, Jonathan A; Smith, Richard (Acoustical Society of America, 2013-06-02) - Conference item
      During the starting transient of a note on a brass instrument it can take several cycles of lip vibration before acoustics reflections from the end of the instrument can influence the lip frequency. Under certain conditions ...
    • 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 ...
    • The physics of unwound and wound strings on the electric guitar applied to the pitch intervals produced by tremolo/vibrato arm systems 

      Kemp, Jonathan Andrew (2017-09-21) - Journal article
      The physics of wound and unwound strings on the electric guitar are presented here, and the pitch intervals produced by the movements of a Fender Stratocaster tremolo unit are explained. Predicted changes in pitch sensitivity ...
    • Pressure fields in the vicinity of brass musical instrument bells measured using a two dimensional grid array and comparison with multimodal models 

      Kemp, Jonathan Andrew; Lopez-Carromero, Amaya; Campbell, Murray (International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration, 2017) - Conference item
      Brass musical instruments act as a source of spherical waves for low frequencies while at higher frequencies the directivity produces a diffracting beam. The directivity and radius of the wavefronts (and therefore the ...
    • Recombination and paradox 

      Uzquiano, Gabriel (2015-08) - Journal article
    • Reply to Blackson 

      Weatherson, Brian James (2016) - Journal article
      Thomas Blackson argues that interest-relative epistemologies cannot explain the irrationality of certain choices when the agent has three possible options. I argue that his examples only refute a subclass of interest-relative ...
    • Reply to Eaton and Pickavance 

      Weatherson, Brian James (2016-03-11) - Journal item
      David Eaton and Timothy Pickavance argued that interest-relative invariantism has a surprising and interesting consequence. They take this consequence to be so implausible that it refutes interest-relative invariantism. ...
    • Rethinking Amerindian spaces in Brazilian history 

      Harris, Mark; Espelt-Bombin, Silvia (2018-10-01) - Journal article
      This special issue on Amerindian spaces is the result of a workshop held at the University of St. Andrews, UK, in June 2015. We asked participants to examine key concepts related to spatial history, such as borderlands, ...
    • Revisiting first contacts on the Amazon 1500-1562 

      Harris, Mark (2017-12) - Journal article
      This article revisits four well-known accounts of the first European encounters with Amerindians in the Amazon. The sporadic character of these encounters make the impact on Amerindian societies irregular and uneven. My ...
    • Schellenberg on the epistemic force of experience 

      McGrath, Matthew (2016-04) - Journal article
      According to Schellenberg, our perceptual experiences have the epistemic force they do because they are exercises of certain sorts of capacity, namely capacities to discriminate particulars—objects, property-instances and ...
    • The soft-source impedance of the lip-reed : experimental measurements with an artificial mouth 

      Harrison, Reginald; Kemp, Jonathan A; Newton, Michael (Acoustical Society of America, 2013-06-02) - Conference item
      Most theoretical descriptions of the brass instrument lip-reed consider the acoustical condition at the lips to be a closed, rigid termination, corresponding to a unitary reflectance. This assumption is carried through to ...
    • Some results on the limits of thought 

      Bacon, Andrew; Uzquiano, Gabriel (2018-01-31) - Journal article
      Generalizing on some arguments due to Arthur Prior and Dmitry Mirimanoff, we provide some further limitative results on what can be thought.
    • Sosa on epistemic value : a Kantian obstacle 

      McGrath, Matthew (2018-02-17) - Journal item
      In recent work, Sosa proposes a comprehensive account of epistemic value based on an axiology for attempts. According to this axiology, an attempt is better if it succeeds, better still if it is apt (i.e., succeeds through ...
    • Time domain wave separation using multiple microphones 

      Kemp, Jonathan A; van Walstijn, Maarten; Campbell, Murray; Chick, John; Smith, Richard (2010-07) - Journal article
      Methods of measuring the acoustic behavior of tubular systems can be broadly characterized as steady state measurements, where the measured signals are analyzed in terms of infinite duration sinusoids, and reflectometry ...
    • Transformative treatments 

      Paul, L. A.; Healy, Kieran (2018-06) - Journal article
      Contemporary social-scientific research seeks to identify specific causal mechanisms for outcomes of theoretical interest. Experiments that randomize populations to treatment and control conditions are the “gold standard” ...
    • Wave separation in the trumpet under playing conditions and comparison with time domain finite difference simulation 

      Kemp, Jonathan A; Bilbao, Stefan; McMaster, James; Smith, Richard (2013-08) - Journal article
      Wave separation within a trumpet is presented using three high pressure microphones to measure pressure waves within the curved, constant cross-section tuning slide of the instrument while the instrument was being played ...
    • "You have to feel a sound for it to be effective" : sonic surfaces in film and television 

      Donaldson, Lucy Fife (Routledge, 2017-05-25) - Book item
      A significant concern in discussions of sound and music in film and television is the relationship between sound and image. The topic can range from the synchronisation of sound effect and action as achieved through foley ...
