  1. Embodied and Extended Numerical Cognition.Marilynn Johnson & Caleb Everett - 2021 - In Sean Allen-Hermanson Anton Killin (ed.), Explorations in Archaeology and Philosophy. Synthese Library. Springer Verlag. pp. 125-148.
    In this chapter we consider the theories of embodied cognition and extended mind with respect to the human ability to engage in numerical cognition. Such an enquiry requires first distinguishing between our innate number sense and the sort of numerical reasoning that is unique to humans. We provide anthropological and linguistic research to defend the thesis that places the body at the center of our development of numerical reasoning. We then draw on archaeological research to suggest a rough date for (...)

    Cooperation with Multiple Audiences.Marilynn Johnson - 2016 - Croatian Journal of Philosophy 16 (2):203-228.
    Steven Pinker proposes a game-theoretic framework to help explain the use of veiled speech in contexts where the ultimate aims of the speaker and hearer may diverge—such as cases of bribing a police officer to get out of a ticket and paying a maître d’ to get a table. This is presented as a response to what Pinker sees as the failure in H. P. Grice’s influential theory of meaning to recognize that speakers and hearers are not always cooperating. In (...)

    Seeking Speaker Meaning in the Archaeological Record.Marilynn Johnson - 2017 - Biological Theory 12 (4):262-274.
    Communication in archaeological artifacts is usually understood in terms of signs or signals, fleshed out under many guises. The notions of signs or signals that archaeologists employ often draw from Saussurean or Peircean semiotic theories from philosophy and linguistics. In this article I consider the consequences of whether we understand archaeological signals in terms of the Saussurean or Peircean framework, and highlight the fact that archaeologists have not always been precise in their use of relevant philosophical machinery. I will argue (...)

    In Defence of Mandatory Bicycle Helmet Legislation: Response to Hooper and Spicer.Paul Biegler & Marilyn Johnson - 2015 - Journal of Medical Ethics 41 (8):713-717.
    We invoke a triple rationale to rebut Hooper and Spicer's argument against mandatory helmet laws. First, we use the laws of physics and empirical studies to show how bicycle helmets afford substantial protection to the user. We show that Hooper and Spicer erroneously downplay helmet utility and that, as a result, their attack on the utilitarian argument for mandatory helmet laws is weakened. Next, we refute their claim that helmet legislation comprises unjustified paternalism. We show the healthcare costs of bareheaded (...)

    Tree Trimming: Four Non-Branching Rules for Priest’s Introduction to Non-Classical Logic.Marilynn Johnson - 2015 - Australasian Journal of Logic 12 (2):97-120.
    In An Introduction to Non-Classical Logic: From If to Is Graham Priest presents branching rules in Free Logic, Variable Domain Modal Logic, and Intuitionist Logic. I propose a simpler, non-branching rule to replace Priest's rule for universal instantiation in Free Logic, a second, slightly modified version of this rule to replace Priest's rule for universal instantiation in Variable Domain Modal Logic, and third and fourth rules, further modifying the second rule, to replace Priest's branching universal and particular instantiation rules in (...)

    Making Meaning Manifest.Marilynn Johnson - 2019 - Croatian Journal of Philosophy 19 (3):497-520.
    In recent work Sperber and Wilson expand on ideas initially presented in Relevance and flesh out continuua between showing and meaning, and determinate and indeterminate content. Drawing on Sperber and Wilson’s work, and at points defending it from what I see as potential objections, I present a Schema of Communicative Acts that includes an additional third continuum between linguistic and non-linguistic content. The SCA clears the way for consideration of what exactly is meant by showing, the motivations of speakers, how (...)
