    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Writing with twisted cords : the inscriptive capacity of Andean khipu texts 

      Hyland, Sabine Patricia (2017) - Journal article
      Two newly discovered khipu (Andean twisted cord) epistles are presented as evidence that khipus could constitute an intelligible writing system, accessible to decipherment. Recent scholars have asserted that khipus were ...
    • "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 ...
