    Human Life: Our Essentially Biological Nature and the Role of Mental Capabilities.Gerson Reuter - 2020 - Zeitschrift für Philosophische Forschung 74 (3):365-391.
    Animalism is the view that we are primarily living beings of the species Homo sapiens. Being alive consists in the realization of biological processes. Accordingly, our conditions of existence and persistence have nothing to do with things like mental continuity. Hence, mental capabilities seem to be irrelevant to understanding the core of our nature as human beings. In recent years, the debate on animalism has focused on certain intractable ontological puzzles. However important these puzzles may be, they do not get (...)

  3. Wir Sind Biologische Lebewesen- Einige Folgeprobleme Einer Auf den Ersten Blick Eingängigen These.Gerson Reuter - 2011 - Allgemeine Zeitschrift für Philosophie 36 (2).
    One of the central claims in Ansgar Beckermann’s Gehirn, Ich, Freiheit is that we are biological beings. Somewhat strikingly, the book manages to convey the impression that this is a rather uncontroversial claim. Actually, the opposite is closer to the truth – or so I will try to argue. That it is a controversial claim can be shown by pointing out some of its problematic and seemingly implausible consequences. These consequences come into view by attempting to answer the questions, what (...)

    Die Rolle der Vorstellungskraft Für Unsere Musikwahrnehmung: Das Phänomen des Hörens-Als.Gerson Reuter - 2015 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 63 (4).
    The widely held belief that classical instrumental music has some kind of content - whether it is supposed to be some language-like meaning or some distinctive and possibly untranslatable musical content - is notoriously difficult to defend. One of the probably rather few promising options of analysing our experiences of hearing ‘content in music’ starts with the assumption that we, the listeners of music, endow the heard musical sequences with content. In the paper, I defend this anti-realism concerning musical content (...)

    Wie Viel Geschichte Steckt in Sprachlichen Bedeutungen?Gerson Reuter - 2019 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 67 (5):744-763.
    Certainly, we sometimes use language creatively and think really new thoughts. However, can we think and speak regardless of the manner in which we have spoken and thought in the past? This seems to be highly improbable. Consequently, nobody would assert something like this. But that being a given, what are the exact reasons that prevent us from radically detaching ourselves from our past practices of thinking and speaking? What roles do past facts play in determining what we are able (...)
