Naturalism and normativity by Hilary Putnam( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Normativity concerns what we ought to think or do and the evaluations we make. For example, we say that we ought to think consistently, we ought to keep our promises, or that Mozart is a better composer than Salieri. Yet what philosophical moral can we draw from the apparent absence of normativity in the scientific image of the world? For scientific naturalists, the moral is that the normative must be reduced to the nonnormative, while for nonnaturalists, the moral is that there must be a transcendent realm of norms
Naturalism in question( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The many prominent Anglo-American philosophers appearing in this book - Akeel Bilgrami, Stanley Cavell, Donald Davidson, John Dupre, Jennifer Hornsby, Erin Kelly, John McDowell, Huw Price, Hilary Putnam, Carol Rovane, Barry Stroud, and Stephen White - do not march in lockstep, yet their contributions demonstrate mutual affinities and various unifying themes. Instead of attempting to force human nature into a restricted scientific image of the world, these papers represent an attempt to place human nature at the center of renewed - but still scientifically respectful - conceptions of philosophy and nature."--Jacket

Pragmatism as a way of life : the lasting legacy of William James and John Dewey by Hilary Putnam( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout his diverse and highly influential career, Hilary Putnam was famous for changing his mind. As a pragmatist he treated philosophical "positions" as experiments in deliberate living. His aim was not to fix on one position but to attempt to do justice to the depth and complexity of reality. In this new collection, he and Ruth Anna Putnam argue that key elements of the classical pragmatism of William James and John Dewey provide a framework for the most progressive and forward-looking forms of philosophy in contemporary thought. The Putnams present a compelling defense of the radical originality of the philosophical ideas of James and Dewey and their usefulness in confronting the urgent social, political, and moral problems of the twenty-first century. This collection brings together almost all of the Putnams' pragmatist writings - essays they wrote as individuals and as coauthors. The pragmatism they endorse, though respectful of the sciences, is an open experience - based philosophy of our everyday lives that trenchantly criticizes the fact/value dualism running through contemporary culture. Hilary Putnam argues that all facts are dependent on cognitive values, while Ruth Anna Putnam turns the problem around, illuminating the factual basis of moral principles. Together, they offer a shared vision which, in Hilary's words, "could serve as a manifesto for what the two of us would like philosophy to look like in the twenty-first century and beyond
La filosofia nell'età della scienza by Hilary Putnam( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in Italian and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hilary Putnam interviene con questo libro su due temi centrali nel dibattito culturale del nostro tempo: il rapporto tra filosofia e scienza e la questione del realismo. Guardando alla scienza naturale, alla matematica e alle scienze cognitive, ma anche all'etica e alla teoria dell'educazione, Putnam si muove per ricomporre la nostra frammentata cultura in un quadro coerente, in cui trovano il giusto spazio sia le istanze conoscitive della scienza sia le domande di emancipazione umana provenienti oggi dalla filosofia, dalle arti e dalla società nel suo complesso. Quanto al realismo, dopo un'esperienza anti realistica che oggi considera inadeguata, l'autore torna qui ad abbracciare una raffinata forma di realismo pluralistico, che rappresenterà certamente un decisivo punto di svolta nel grande confronto sul New Realism oggi in corso anche nel nostro paese

The ROSS language manual by David McArthur( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Note summarizes the commands of the ROSS language. ROSS is an object-oriented programming language developed at RAND. The goal of ROSS is to provide a programming environment in which users can conveniently design, test, and change large knowledge-based simulations of complex mechanisms. Object-oriented programming languages, and ROSS in particular, enforce a "message-passing" style of programming in which the system to be modeled is represented as a set of actors and their behaviors (rules for actor interaction). This style is especially suited to simulation, since the mechanism or process to be simulated may have a part-whole decomposition that maps naturally onto actors. The first section of this Note gives an overall view of the language and the philosophy behind object-oriented programming. The next eleven sections give detailed descriptions of the basic commands or behaviors of the language. The final two sections give advice on how to write English-like code in ROSS and how to optimize code, once debugged
Skeptical reason & inner experience : a re-examination of the problem of the external world by David Macarthur( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In contrast to the recent trend of taking external world skepticism as a narrow problem for a demanding conception of "objective" or "certain" knowledge about the world, my thesis offers a re-examination of the distinctively perceptual basis of the skeptical problem. On my view the skeptic challenges the very possibility of rationally justifying beliefs in so far as they are based on sense experience, a characterization that helps to explain the continuity into the modern period of the ancient skeptical challenge to the pretensions of reason. What is newly radical in external world skepticism is the discovery (invention?) of the inner realm of the mind, and hence, of inner states (i.e. subjective experiences or private sensations) as a component of every sense experience. I argue that the skeptic relies upon a distinctive, intuitively compelling, conception of sense experience which I call the causal model of experience

The Evolution of Internationalisation Strategies in the European Electricity Industry( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The article analyses and evaluates the recent emergence of internationalisation strategies within a key utility sector in Europe - the Electricity Industry - against a background of progressive deregulation and ownership change. The article examines in greater detail the case of the United Kingdom, noting particularly the recent liberalisation of the Electricity Industry there which has led to a rapid growth in international investment interest.--SCAD summary
