    Bachelard, science and objectivity.Mary Tiles - 1984 - New York: Cambridge University Press.
    This is the first critically evaluative study of Gaston Bachelard's philosophy of science to be written in English. Bachelard's professional reputation was based on his philosophy of science, though that aspect of his thought has tended to be neglected by his English-speaking readers. Dr Tiles concentrates here on Bachelard's critique of scientific knowledge. Bachelard emphasised discontinuities in the history of science; in particular he stressed the new ways of thinking about and investigating the world to be found in modern science. (...)

    Living in a Technological Culture: Human Tools and Human Values.Hans Oberdiek & Mary Tiles - 1995 - New York: Routledge. Edited by Hans Oberdiek.
    Technology is no longer confined to the laboratory but has become an established part of our daily lives. Its sophistication offers us power beyond our human capacity which can either dazzle or threaten; it depends who is in control. _Living in a Technological Culture_ challenges traditionally held assumptions about the relationship between `man-and-machine'. It argues that contemporary science does not shape technology but is shaped by it. Neither discipline exists in a moral vacuum, both are determined by politics rather than (...)

    Is Historical Epistemology Part of the 'Modernist Settlement'?Mary Tiles - 2011 - Erkenntnis 75 (3):525-543.
    Bruno Latour, as part of his advocacy of science studies urges us to move beyond what he calls ‘the Modernist Settlement’ that, among other things, separated science from politics and subject from object. As part of this project he has frequently called for the abolition of epistemology, including quite specifically the historical epistemology/epistemological history of Gaston Bachelard and Georges Canguilhem. Pierre Bourdieu, on the other hand, deploys the resources of historical epistemology, to dismiss Latour’s science studies. After examining the charges (...)

  9. The philosophy of set theory: an historical introduction to Cantor's paradise.Mary Tiles - 1989 - Mineola, N.Y.: Dover Publications.
    David Hilbert famously remarked, “No one will drive us from the paradise that Cantor has created.” This volume offers a guided tour of modern mathematics’ Garden of Eden, beginning with perspectives on the finite universe and classes and Aristotelian logic. Author Mary Tiles further examines permutations, combinations, and infinite cardinalities; numbering the continuum; Cantor’s transfinite paradise; axiomatic set theory; logical objects and logical types; independence results and the universe of sets; and the constructs and reality of mathematical structure. Philosophers and (...)

  11. The normal and pathological: The concept of a scientific medicine.Mary Tiles - 1993 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 44 (4):729-742.
    In this paper it is suggested that Canguilhem's examination of the history of the distinction between the normal and the pathological contains material of relevance to current debates about the nature of medicine, in particular concerning the status of quantitative indicators as indicators of the need for medical intervention. His arguments against the equation of health with normality are presented, together with his own suggested definition of health and the implications of this definition for physiology and medicine.

    Epistemological History: the Legacy of Bachelard and Canguilhem.Mary Tiles - 1987 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Lecture Series 21:141-156.
    Fifteen to twenty years ago one might have been forgiven for thinking that both the philosophy and history of science constituted specialized academic backwaters, far removed from debates in the forefront of either philosophic or public attention. But times have changed; science and technology have in many ways and in many guises become central foci of public debate, whether through concern over nuclear safety, the massive price to be paid for continued research in areas such as high energy physics, the (...)

    A Science of Mars or of Venus?Mary Tiles - 1987 - Philosophy 62 (241):293 - 306.
    For as long as there has been anything worthy of the name of science, there have been those who have criticized its claim to superior knowledge. With the birth and prodigious growth of modern science, the corresponding growthof critical opinion led, in the eighteenth century, to a divorce of the sciences from the humanities around which our educational institutions, and our universities in particular, have been built. It is this divorce which renders problematic the status of the social or human (...)

    An introduction to historical epistemology: the authority of knowledge.Mary Tiles - 1993 - Cambridge, USA: Blackwell. Edited by J. E. Tiles.
    This introduction to the theory of knowledge argues for the continuing relevance of philosophical debates about knowledge by connecting them to issues of authority. The discussion takes the form of an essay in historical epistemology which treats the philosopher-politician Frnacis Bacon as its pivotal figure. This affords a non-Cartesian perspective on the transition to modern philosophy from which the distinctive configurations of the Cartesian framework can be discerned. The strategy is to use history as a route to a critical appraisal (...)

    Balancing acts: Rational agency and efficacious action.Mary Tiles - 1999 - International Studies in the Philosophy of Science 13 (3):289 – 300.
    In this paper I try to problematize our conception of rational agency and to suggest that this conception is a matter of some practical and political significance. This is done on the one hand by indicating why more attention should be paid to the role of practical know-how, or skill, in the application of general laws or principles to particular cases, and on the other by looking to a Chinese model of efficacious action, where much attention is paid to cultivating (...)

    Mathematics: The Language of Science?Mary Tiles - 1984 - The Monist 67 (1):3-17.
    Science has become, as all nonspecialists know to their cost, increasingly mathematical; science textbooks and research papers, even popularising articles in Scientific American, are littered with graphs, numbers, mathematical symbols and equations. This has prompted the question “What exactly is the function of mathematics in science?” For example, could one understand a theory such as Einstein’s theory of special relativity without having knowledge of any sophisticated mathematics?

    Could the Aristotelian square of opposition be translated into Chinese?Mary Tiles & Yuan Jinmei - 2004 - Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 4 (1):137-149.
    To translate the Aristotelian square of opposition into Chinese requires restructuring the Aristotelian system of genus-species into the Chinese way of classification and understanding of the focus-field relationship. The feature of the former is on a tree model, while that of the later is on the focusfield model. Difficulties arise when one tries to show contraries betweenA- type and E-type propositions in the Aristotelian square of opposition in Chinese, because there is no clear distinction between universal and particular in a (...)

  24. Kant, wittgenstein and the limits of logic.Mary Tiles - 1980 - History and Philosophy of Logic 1 (1-2):151-170.
    This paper has two purposes. (1) To justify the claim that there is an important distinction underlying the saying/showing distinction of the Tractatus; the distinction which Kant characterises as that between historical and rational knowledge. (2) To argue that it is because the Tractatus accepts Frege/Russell logic as a complete representation of all thought according to laws, that what is shown cannot be recognised as knowledge. This is done by interpolating Frege's logical innovations between the views of Kant and Wittgenstein (...)

    Form, Reason, and Method.Mary Tiles - 2011 - In Desmond M. Clarke & Catherine Wilson (eds.), The Oxford handbook of philosophy in early modern Europe. Oxford: Oxford University Press.
    This article traces the development of an ideal of method that was inspired by Ramon Lull and subsequently found new expressions in many of the proponents of a new science in early modern Europe. It investigates the unravelling of the link between scientific reason and logic and their reweaving in a pattern that integrated scientific reason with mathematics and the discovery of mathematically formulated relationships. It discusses how the transformations of one family of concepts that include proportion, ratio, and measure (...)
