Truth and the absence of fact by Hartry H Field( )

24 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hartry Field presents a selection of thirteen essays on a set of related topics at the foundations of philosophy; one essay is previously unpublished, and eight are accompanied by substantial new postscripts. Five of the essays are primarily about truth, meaning, and propositional attitudes, five are primarily about semantic indeterminacy and other kinds of 'factual defectiveness' in our discourse, and three are primarily about issues concerning objectivity, especially in mathematics and in epistemology."--Jacket
Saving truth from paradox by Hartry H Field( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an investigation into paradoxes of truth and related issues, with occasional forays into notions such as vagueness the nature of validity, and the Gödel incompleteness theorems. Hartry Field presents a new approach to the paradoxes and provides a systematic and detailed account of the main competing approaches
Science without numbers : a defence of nominalism by Hartry H Field( Book )

31 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Science Without Numbers' caused a stir when it was originally published in 1980, with its bold nominalist approach to the philosophy of mathematics and science. It has been unavailable for 20 years and is now reissued in a revised edition with a substantial new preface presenting the author's current views and responses to the issues raised in subsequent debate
Realism, mathematics, and modality by Hartry H Field( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Papers on epistemic rationality by Sinan Dogramaci( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis consists of three papers on the topic of epistemic rationality. The first paper concerns our beliefs in the validity of some of our most basic belief forming rules. The second paper concerns the role that intuitions may play in supporting inferred beliefs. The third paper concerns the metaphysical status of the property of being epistemically rational
Symmetry as a guide to reality by Shamik Dasgupta( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three papers in this dissertation examine the way in which symmetries in physics can be used to draw conclusions about the fundamental structure of the physical world. Specifically, they focus on the following line of reasoning. (1) Feature X varies under the symmetries of our best confirmed physical laws of motion. (2) Therefore, feature X is undetectable and redundant to our best confirmed physics. (3) Therefore, by Occam's razor we have good reason to believe that in reality there is no such thing as feature X. This line of reasoning can be traced back to the classic debate between Newton and Leibniz on the nature of space. My dissertation attempts to clarify its premises, defend it, and apply it to new cases
Two challenges to the objectivity of logic by Joshua B Schechter( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We ordinarily believe that logical truths are objectively true. We also ordinarily believe that we know many logical truths. Assuming the objectivity of logic, our possession of this knowledge is a significant cognitive achievement. There are two important aspects to this achievement. First, we are reliable in by-and-large accepting logical truths and rejecting logical falsehoods. Second, we are epistemically responsible in accepting many of the logical claims we accept and in rejecting many of the logical claims we reject. That we are reliable and that we are responsible are facts that need to be explained. However, there is some difficulty in explaining them if, indeed, logic is objective. The purpose of this dissertation is to show how these two explanatory challenges may be met without rejecting the claim that we know objective logical truths
Possible Worlds and the Objective World by Jeffrey Russell( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Lewis's theory of counterparts says the different ways you could have been are not different possible worlds in which you are different, but rather different possible individuals which represent you. This theory faces a technical problem: it isn't clear how the theory can make sense of claims about actuality--for instance, the claim that there could have been more things than there actually are. Straightforward reasoning about counterparts and actuality seems to lead to unacceptable consequences. I show that, by paying careful attention to the relation that holds between possible individuals and the actual things they represent, this technical challenge can be met
Once upon a spacetime by Bradford Skow( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation concerns the nature of spacetime. It is divided into two parts. The first part, which comprises chapters 1, 2, and 3, addresses ontological questions: does spacetime exist? And if so, are there any other spatiotemporal things? In chapter 1 I argue that spacetime does exist, and in chapter 2 I respond to modal arguments against this view. In chapter 3 I examine and defend supersubstantivalism--the claim that all concrete physical objects (tables; chairs, electrons and quarks) are regions of spacetime
An argument for robust metanormative realism by David Enoch( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In chapter 3 I develop an account of deliberation that supports the premises about deliberation needed for my master-argument to go through
Evidence, entailment, and defeat by Matthew Kotzen( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the three papers that constitute this dissertation, I address these related questions about evidence within a broadly Bayesian framework

Modality, names and descriptions by Zsófia Zvolenszky( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The dissertation comprises three papers. "The Lost Pillar of Deontic Modality" concerns a thorny problem posed by conditional requirements: we expect some modal conditionals of the form 'if p, then it must be that p' to be false, yet they all come out true given two basic assumptions needed to account for ordinary conditional requirement like 'If the light turns red, then cars must stop'. The first assumption is a semantic expectation linking conditional requirements with absolute ones, the second is the possible-worlds-based definition of modal sentences. Keeping the former means giving up the latter, a result with profound implications for Kratzer's formal semantics, modifications thereof, as well as deontic logics
Causal priority at the singular level : Fork asymmetry-based accounts meet the generalization strategy by Linda Leanne Habeeb( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Morality and Mathematics by Justin Clarke-Doane( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation collects three papers relating problems in metaethics to problems in the philosophy of mathematics. "What is Absolute Undecidability?" seeks an understanding of absolute undecidability such that the argument from the absolute undecidability of the Continuum Hypothesis to its indeterminacy is both non-question-begging and plausible. It is argued that the best such understanding--in terms of the possibility of "cognitively flawless" disagreement--generates an argument for the indeterminacy not just of the Continuum Hypothesis, but of standard axioms as well. "The Evolutionary Debunking of Mathematics" discusses the Evolutionary Debunking Argument against moral realism and its application to mathematical realism. It is argued that the Evolutionary Debunking Argument is widely misconceived and that, contrary to the views of many, works equally against mathematical realism. Finally, "Moral Epistemology: The Mathematics Analogy" discusses similarities and differences between epistemological objections to moral realism and epistemological objections to mathematical realism. It is argued that, while there is no simple correspondence between epistemological objections in the two domains, it is hard to see how one could reject moral realism on epistemological grounds, while continuing to embrace mathematical realism--though it may be possible to do the opposite
