    • Debating irony and the ironic as a social phenomenon and a human capacity 

      Rapport, Nigel Julian; Stade, Ronald (2014-11) - Journal article
      What follows is a set of paired articles, followed by a statement by both authors where they debate their distinct positions. Both articles treat irony, but while Rapport looks to it as a possible liberal virtue, a means ...
    • Discomfiture in time; and the future as birthright 

      Rapport, Nigel Julian (2017) - Journal article
    • Games, beliefs and credences 

      Weatherson, Brian James (2016-03) - Journal article
    • How khipus indicated labour contributions in an Andean village: an explanation of colour banding, seriation and ethnocategories 

      Hyland, Sabine (2016-12) - Journal article
      New archival and ethnographic evidence reveals that Inka style khipus were used in the Andean community of Santiago de Anchucaya to record contributions to communal labour obligations until the 1940s. Archival testimony ...
    • Knowing what things look like 

      McGrath, Matthew (2017-01) - Journal article
      Walking through the supermarket, I see the avocados. I know they are avocados. Similarly, if you see a pumpkin on my office desk, you can know it’s a pumpkin from its looks. The phenomenology in such cases is that of “just ...
    • 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 ...
    • Perceptual reasons 

      Comesana, Juan; McGrath, Matthew (2016-04) - Journal article
      The two main theories of perceptual reasons in contemporary epistemology can be called Phenomenalism and Factualism. According to Phenomenalism, perceptual reasons are facts about experiences conceived of as phenomenal ...
    • 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 ...
    • Scaling a river 

      Harris, Mark (Institut für Ethnologie, Universität zu Köln, 2018) - Book item
      How can we know a watery space? This contribution to the ‘hydrosocial Anthropocene’ focuses on techniques and methodologies for the ethnographic and historical investigation of riverine societies. Here I examine three ...
