    Realism/Antirealism and Epistemology.Christopher B. Kulp (ed.) - 1997 - Rowman & Littlefield.
    This landmark collection of essays by six renowned philosophers explores the implications of the contentious realism/antirealism debate for epistemology. The essays examine issues such as whether epistemology needs to be realist, the bearing of a realist conception of truth on epistemology, and realism and antirealism in terms of a pragmatist conception of epistemic justification. Richard Rorty's essay provides a critical commentary on the other five.

    Metaphysics of Morality.Christopher B. Kulp - 2019 - Springer Verlag.
    This is a book on metaethics—in particular, an inquiry into the metaphysical foundations of morality. After carefully exploring the metaphysical commitments, or lack thereof, of the leading versions of moral anti-realism, Kulp develops a new and in-depth theory of moral realism. Starting with the firm recognition of the importance of our common sense belief that we possess a great deal of moral knowledge—that, for example, some acts are objectively right and some objectively wrong—the book goes on to examine the metaphysical (...)

    Knowing Moral Truth: A Theory of Metaethics and Moral Knowledge.Christopher B. Kulp - 2017 - Lexington Books.
    This book is staunchly anti-skeptical. It develops a theory of moral realism—there are indeed objective moral truths—and a broadly commonsense theory of moral knowledge: although we are certainly liable to error, we nevertheless often possess moral knowledge.

    The Pre-Theoreticality of Moral Intuitions.Christopher B. Kulp - 2014 - Synthese 191 (15):3759-3778.
    Moral intuitionism, once an apparently moribund metaethical position, has seen a resurgence of interest of late. Robert Audi, a leading moral intuitionist, has argued that in order for a moral belief to qualify as intuitional, it must fulfill four criteria: it must be non-inferential, firmly held, comprehended, and pre-theoretical. This paper centers on the fourth and seemingly most problematic criterion: pre-theoreticality. The paper begins by stipulating the defensibility of the moral cognitivism upon which moral intuitionism turns. Next, the paper develops (...)

    Moral Intuitions: Seeming or Believing?Christopher B. Kulp - 2022 - Synthese 200 (2):1-18.
    There is not agreement among moral intuitionists on the nature of moral intuitions: some favor a doxastic interpretation, others a non-doxastic interpretation. This paper argues that although both interpretations have legitimacy, the doxastic interpretation is preferable. The paper discusses three salient roles for moral intuitions:Role 1: To serve as a test for moral theories.Role 2: To provide a particularist grounding for moral judgment.Role 3: To stop a vicious infinite regress of justified moral belief.The doxastic interpretation better serves Role 1, given (...)

  12. John Dewey and the Spectator Theory of Knowledge.Christopher B. Kulp - 1986 - Dissertation, Vanderbilt University
    John Dewey's philosophical work has enjoyed a resurgence of interest of late, largely because of its iconoclastic stance toward traditional philosophy in general, and traditional epistemology in particular. In this dissertation I examine critically the anti-epistemological project which occupied Dewey throughout the first half of this century. In common with many other commentators, I understand Dewey to have held that the central, fatal flaw of traditional epistemology is its commitment to what he called the Spectator Theory of Knowledge --roughly the (...)

    The End of Epistemology: Dewey and His Current Allies on the Spectator Theory of Knowledge.Christopher B. Kulp - 1992 - Greenwood Press.
    Kulp provides a thorough examination of John Dewey's influential arguments against traditional theories of knowledge; in particular against the thesis that knowing is fundamentally a passive "beholding" relation between the knower and the object known and ultimately, he finds them deficient. He also lays the basis for a defense of a spectator theory of having knowledge, a basis that incorporates important considerations about introspective knowledge.

    Articulating Reasons: An Introduction to Inferentialism. [REVIEW]Christopher B. Kulp - 2002 - Review of Metaphysics 55 (4):847-848.
    This is a book on semantics, centered on developing an inferentialist theory of concept content and use—a theory that contrasts sharply with the dominate representationalist theories that are the legacy of Russell, Carnap, and Frege. It is intended as an introduction to and elaboration upon themes developed in Brandom’s earlier book, Making It Explicit.
