    Toward an Ethics of the Encounter: William James's Push Beyond Tolerance.Jeff Edmonds - 2011 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 25 (2):133-147.
    Something in the world forces us to think. This something is an object not of recognition but of a fundamental encounter.The Deweyan call for democracy as a way of life is a call to bring together ethics and politics. There is the temptation to think of this vision of democracy as a single "way of life"—an ethos with well-defined values such that the democratic thinker, the democratic community, and the democratic citizen can be identified as living out this democratic way (...)

    How to Think About Algorithms.Jeff Edmonds - 2008 - Cambridge University Press.
    There are many algorithm texts that provide lots of well-polished code and proofs of correctness. Instead, this book presents insights, notations, and analogies to help the novice describe and think about algorithms like an expert. By looking at both the big picture and easy step-by-step methods for developing algorithms, the author helps students avoid the common pitfalls. He stresses paradigms such as loop invariants and recursion to unify a huge range of algorithms into a few meta-algorithms. Part of the goal (...)

    Criticism Without Critique: Power and Experience in Foucault and James.Jeffrey S. Edmonds - 2011 - Foucault Studies 11:41-53.
    Through an analysis of philosophical temperaments, I argue that both William James and Michel Foucault believed the central task of philosophy not only to be the generation of new ideas or ways of thinking, but also to create new temperaments, new ways of inhabiting the world. Though James and Foucault in many ways agree on the ends of philosophy, the methods and strategies that they developed differ according to the problems with which each philosopher was concerned. Although James gives a (...)

    Running as Art.Jeff Edmonds - 2015 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 29 (2):165-179.
    ABSTRACT This article gives a poetic argument that bodily practices such as those of the devoted runner can revitalize experience through regular encounters with the ineffable. It also argues that language—particularly the language of philosophy—tends to strip experience of its ineffable qualities, reducing lived experience to what can be expressed. Nonverbal and bodily practices can point toward a richer sense of experience, thereby offering a critical view of ways in which an overly linguistic form of contemporary life diminishes experience by (...)
