    The Once and Future Georgic: Agricultural Practice, Environmental Knowledge, and the Place for an Ethic of Experience. [REVIEW]Benjamin R. Cohen - 2009 - Agriculture and Human Values 26 (3):153-165.
    This paper re-introduces the georgic ethic and the role it has historically played in debates about new agricultural practices. Public engagement, participatory research, and greater local involvement in crafting new means to work the land flood the literature of agrarian studies. Putting the experience- and place-based georgic into that discourse can help deepen its character and future possibilities. The paper draws from recent sociological research into the acceptance and resistance to new practices to show the georgic’s explanatory, descriptive utility in (...)

  4. On the Historical Relationship Between the Sciences and the Humanities: A Look at Popular Debates That Have Exemplified Cross-Disciplinary Tension.Benjamin R. Cohen - 2001 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 21 (4):283-295.
    This article discusses popular and academic debates that turned on the merit of either science or the humanities. The author uses four cases to provide this history: the Huxley-Arnold debate of the 1880s, the science education reformation debates in Britain in the 1920s, the two-culture debate of the 1960s, and the science wars of recent years. Each of those debates sought to establish the supremacy of science for society’s welfare, and the first three necessarily excised interdisciplinary approaches from their proposed (...)

    Contrariety and Causality in Hume.Benjamin Cohen - 1978 - Hume Studies 4 (1):29-39.
    In the "treatise", Hume treats contrariety as both a relation of 'knowledge' and a relation of 'probability', But these two classes of relations are disjoint. To resolve this apparent inconsistency in hume's theory of relations it is shown that hume implicitly operates with two concepts of contrariety: one is causal and empirical; the other (under a certain restriction) amounts to logical contradiction.

    Fisheries, Wildlife, and Philosophy of Science: An Exercise in Definition.Benjamin R. Cohen - 2000 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 20 (6):466-479.
    The Department of Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences graduate program at Virginia Tech held a student-led, discussion-based, 9-week seminar in the philosophy of science during the fall 1999 semester. This seminar presented the sociologist of science with the opportunity to investigate questions such as, How does a contemporary scientific discipline use the philosophy of science? What do scientists hope to gain from an understanding of demarcation issues? And how do they perceive themselves as a science? Issues of demarcation between science and (...)
