Consciousness evolving by James H Fetzer ( )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 1,336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A collection of stimulating studies on the past, the present, and the future of consciousness, Consciousness Evolving contributes to understanding some of the most important conceptual problems of our time. The advent of the modern synthesis together with the human genome project affords a platform for considering what it is that makes humans distinctive. Beginning with an essay that accents the nature of the problem within a behavioristic framework and concluding with reflections on the prospects for a form of immortality through serial cloning, the chapters are divided into three sections, w
Science, explanation, and rationality aspects of the philosophy of Carl G. Hempel by James H Fetzer ( )
12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The late Carl Hempel was one of, if not the most influential philosophers of science in the 20th century. His work defined the problems and the methodology of the discipline for over thirty years. In this volume, thirteen highly distinguished philosophers, most of whom studied with Hempel, illuminate and clarify the central problems to which Carl G. Hempel was devoted. The result enhances our understanding of major developments in the philosophy of science, particularly the development of logical empiricism as a major - even the major - intellectual influence for scientifically-oriented philosphers and philosophically-minded scientists during the 20th century. It should appeal to an unusually broad audience of students and scholars of the philosophy of science, of the history of philosophy, and of 20th century intellectual history

Computers and cognition : why minds are not machines by James H Fetzer ( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unlike conceptions of minds as machines, this novel approach has obvious evolutionary implications, where differences in semiotic abilities tend to distinguish the species. From this point of view, the scope and limits of computer systems and of AI systems can be more adequately appraised and alternative accounts of consciousness and cognition can be more thoroughly critiqued." "Audience: This book will appeal to intermediate and advanced students of computer science, AI, and cognitive science, as well as all students of the philosophy of mind."--BOOK JACKET
Assassination science : experts speak out on the death of JFK by James H Fetzer ( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If you have ever been tempted to believe that President Kennedy was killed by a lone,demented gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald, then Assassination Science is the one book which will convince you, beyond any reasonable doubt, that there was indeed a conspiracy and a cover-up. Completely lacking the wild speculation that have marred some books on the shooting of JFK, Assassination Science sticks to the hard facts, interpreted by medical and scientific expertise
Scientific knowledge : causation, explanation, and corroboration by James H Fetzer ( Book )
14 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The evolution of intelligence : are humans the only animals with minds? by James H Fetzer ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Evolutionary theory and philosophy of mind come together in this carefully reasoned explanation of what is now known about humankind's place in nature. According to Professor James H. Fetzer, any scientific account of the evolution of mind must be based on a theoretically defensible conception of what mind is, clarifying the way in which mental states influence behavior. Fetzer disputes the computational conception, currently the most fashionable within cognitive science, and propounds an alternative approach based on semiotics. Using gene-culture co-evolutionary theory, we can identify intelligence with epigenetic rules involving the use of signs. In this view, some machines may be credited with intelligence but not with minds." "Fetzer's wide-ranging discussion sheds light on many controversial issues, including the scientific status of sociobiology, variability in intelligence among human populations, and the relation between biological evolution and moral imperatives."--Jacket
The place of probability in science in honor of Ellery Eells (1953-2006) ( )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of philosophy, broadly conceived, can be described as that of attempting to resolve heretofore unsolved conceptual and theoretical problems, especially those that lie at the foundations of knowledge and values. Given the central role of science in acquiring reliable knowledge, the study of science has become of special importance within philosophy. And within philosophy of science, in turn, no other concept possesses the centrality and importance as does that of probability. To clarify and illuminate the place of probability in science Ellery Eells and James H. Fetzer have brought

The new theory of reference : Kripke, Marcus, and its origins by Paul Humphreys ( Book )
16 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of essays is the definitive version of a widely discussed debate over the origins of the New Theory of Reference. In new articles written especially for this volume, Quentin Smith and Scott Soames, the original participants in the debate, elaborate their positions on who was responsible for the ideas that Saul Kripke presented in his Naming and Necessity. They are joined by John Burgess, who weighs in on the side of Soames, while Smith adds a further dimension in discussing the contributions of philosophers such as Føllesdal, Geach, Hintikka, and Plantinga. Also included are lengthy excerpts from Føllesdal's 1961 Harvard dissertation and a careful examination by Sten LindstroĢˆm of the respective contributions of Kripke and Stig Kanger to the development of modal semantics. The collection will be essential reading for anyone acquainted with these influential ideas
The Great Zapruder film hoax : deceit and deception in the death of JFK by James H Fetzer ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Zapruder film has been described as ""the most significant amateur recording of a news event in history."" The 27-second ""home movie"" of the Kennedy assassination is often claimed to be bedrock fact, against which all theories of the assassination must be judged. Yet from the beginning disturbing questions have been raised. The Zapruder movie contradicts eyewitness evidence, photographic evidence, medical evidence, and ballistics evidence. The events depicted in the film even contradict the laws of physics. Mystery shrouds the film's history, including who developed it, who edited it by sp
