    Medical Ethics, Logic Traps, and Game Theory: An Illustrative Tale of Brain Death.J. E. Riggs - 2004 - Journal of Medical Ethics 30 (4):359-361.
    Decision making and choices are frequent themes in medical ethics. Game theory is based upon modelled decision making. Game theory, and associated logic traps, may have relevance to the clinical practice of medicine and medical ethics. The “prisoner’s dilemma” is one logic trap from game theory in which “rational” decision making on the part of participating individuals can lead to “suboptimal” situations. An example of such a situation involving brain death is presented and discussed from the perspective of the prisoner’s (...)

    Infant Homicide and Accidental Death in the United States, 1940-2005: Ethics and Epidemiological Classification.J. E. Riggs & G. R. Hobbs - 2011 - Journal of Medical Ethics 37 (7):445-448.
    Potential ethical issues can arise during the process of epidemiological classification. For example, unnatural infant deaths are classified as accidental deaths or homicides. Societal sensitivity to the physical abuse and neglect of children has increased over recent decades. This enhanced sensitivity could impact reported infant homicide rates. Infant homicide and accident mortality rates in boys and girls in the USA from 1940 to 2005 were analysed. In 1940, infant accident mortality rates were over 20 times greater than infant homicide rates (...)

    Quantum Causality: Conceptual Issues in the Causal Theory of Quantum Mechanics.Peter J. Riggs - 2009 - Dordrecht: Springer Academic.
    The Causal Theory of Quantum Mechanics provides a better understanding of the fundamentals of quantum mechanics than is provided by Orthodox (i.e. Copenhagen) Quantum Theory by describing micro-phenomena in terms of entities and processes in space and time, thereby embracing causality at the quantum level. The book focuses especially on finding solutions to conceptual issues about the nature of energy, the conservation of energy, forces, and the Exclusion Principle within the context of the Causal Theory of Quantum Mechanics.

  4. The Principal Paradox of Time Travel.Peter J. Riggs - 1997 - Ratio 10 (1):48–64.
    Most arguments against the possibility of time travel use the same old, familiar objection: If I could travel back in time, then I could kill my earlier (i.e. younger) self. Since I do exist such an action would result in a contradiction. Therefore time travel is impossible. This is a statement of the Principal Paradox of Time Travel. Some philosophers have argued that such actions as attempting to kill one’s earlier self would always fail and that there is nothing especially (...)

    Theodicy and the Free Will Defence: Response to Plantinga and Flew: J. E. BARNHART.J. E. Barnhart - 1977 - Religious Studies 13 (4):439-453.
    Although Professor of Philosophy at Calvin College, Alvin Plantinga has developed a theodicy that is fundamentally Arminian rather than Calvinistic. Anthony Flew, although the son of an Arminian Christian minister, regards the Arminian view of ‘free will’ to be both unacceptable on its own terms and incompatible with classical Christian theism. In this paper I hope to disentangle some of the involved controversy regarding theodicy which has developed between Plantinga and Flew, and between Flew and myself. The major portion of (...)

    The Epistemology of G. E. Moore. [REVIEW]J. E. J. - 1970 - Review of Metaphysics 23 (3):558-558.
    This book evaluates Moore's contribution to the discussion of a number of epistemological problems, and arrives at the conclusion that Moore's contribution is not considerable. The author maintains that Moore was able to succeed philosophically in the refutation of Idealism, in the establishment of analytical techniques, and in his recognition of the role of common sense; but in those technical areas which were most interesting to Moore, the author finds little accomplishment, and even some confusion. For example, in considering the (...)

    Two Imitations in Lucan.J. E. G. Zetzel - 1980 - Classical Quarterly 30 (01):257-.
    The subject is in both cases the voyage of the Argo, and therefore the use of the same words is not likely to be coincidental, even though the words themselves are scarcely uncommon. One would hesitate to deny, however, that such reminiscence might be unconscious; that Lucan had famous tags in his head is suggested by another allusion to famous opening lines.

    A collection of essays by Oakeshott, Weldon, Macdonald, Rees, Quinton, Mayo, Bambrough, Gaillie, Williams and Laslett. The preface describes this work as representative of the effort to recover the area of politics and society for philosophy. With the exception of essays by Oakeshott, Gaillie and Laslett, the writings are fairly routine applications of the analytic philosophical position to questions related to politics; these applications might just as easily have been made by anyone familiar with the literature of analytic philosophy.

    Sind and Science: Reinhold Niebuhr as Political Theologian. [REVIEW]E. B. J. - 1956 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (2):367-367.
    Writing in the tradition of Deweyan pragmatism, the author is critical of the transcendent in ethics, and explicitly accuses Niebuhr of making his political ethic a no-man's-land between an antiquarian view of human nature, and man's dependence upon an intrusion of grace at the end. Odegard raises important questions, but his treatment is superficial in many instances, and is directed from a position which is assumed, not defended.--J. E. B.

    Sound and Symbol: Music and the External World. [REVIEW]E. B. J. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (3):546-546.
    The author brings a musical competence to bear upon an original treatment of music as a natural phenomenon. This attempt to treat music, not primarily as a product of artistic genius, but as a part of experience in general, involves a study of motion, time and space. The analysis of musical time and motions develops those concepts after the manner of the philosophers of process. Most interesting is the consideration of musical space in which Zuckerkandl elaborates what he alleges is (...)

    The Study of Man. [REVIEW]E. M. J. - 1960 - Review of Metaphysics 13 (3):533-533.
    The first two chapters of this book reiterate the results established by Polanyi in his more comprehensive work, Personal Knowledge, and, according to the author, might serve as an introduction to that work. In the third and final chapter Polanyi illustrates his thesis that the study of man is continuous with the study of nature, by interpreting history according to his theory of personal knowledge, thus repudiating Collingwood and other "secessionist" theorists of history. A common ground of natural sciences and (...)

    This translation of Botero's sixteenth century work, supposedly an attack on Machiavelli, is based on the Italian edition of 1948. The work is written as 'advice to the Prince' and covers a variety of subjects from the construction of fortresses to the morality of the ruler. The principal theme is the necessity for the restoration of morality to politics. Because of the importance of the Counter-reformation in Botero's time, special attention is also given to the role of the church and (...)

    The Triumph of Grace in the Theology of Karl Barth. [REVIEW]E. B. J. - 1956 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (2):358-358.
    The intent of this work is to examine the relationship between the divine "Yes" and "No" as they appear in Barth's thought. Berkouwer maintains that Barth sees in God's "No" to the nature of sinful man only a powerful re-affirmation of what is most important to Barth--the inexorable triumph of divine grace. The implications of this thesis are thoughtfully and critically set forth. --J. E. B.

    This amazing book treats of such diverse topics as verbal analysis, free will, taxation and military service. Its chief concern is to demonstrate the author's conviction that there is "some fundamental ineptness in the way that all of us handle our minds," especially in the sphere of human relations. While the insights which Bridgman wishes to communicate are arresting, one hardly knows whether they are ridiculous or sublime, as, e.g. when he proposes techniques for making consciousness public. On the whole, (...)
