    Cultivating Character : Spiritual Exercises, Remedial Virtues, and the Formation of the Heart.Ryan D. West - 2016 - Dissertation, Baylor University
    According to philosophical situationists, empirical psychology suggests that most people are not virtuous, and that we should be skeptical about the possibility of cultivating virtue. I argue against the second claim by offering an empirically informed model of character formation. The model begins with ancient formational wisdom emphasizing emotion education, the practice of spiritual exercises, self-monitoring, and willpower, and is confirmed, nuanced, and supplemented by insights from recent empirical psychology. Many ancient philosophers, recent social psychologists, and philosophers of emotion agree (...)

    Character in Context: Character Structure Among United States Military Academy Cadets.Kristina Schmid Callina, Brian Burkhard, Hillary S. Schaefer, Jeremiah Powers, Elise D. Murray, Gerald Kobylski, Dianne M. Ryan, Dennis Kelly, Michael D. Matthews & Richard M. Lerner - 2019 - Journal of Moral Education 48 (4):439-464.
    ABSTRACTResearch about the structure of character has largely assessed purported universal attributes. However, character develops within specific social, cultural and institutional contexts. As part of the first wave of a longitudinal study of character development among cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point, an institution with a core mission to develop leaders of character, we examined the factor structure of a set of 15 character attributes of specific relevance to the West Point context. Data were (...)

    Discovering Discovery: How Faraday Found the First Metallic Colloid.Ryan D. Tweney - 2006 - Perspectives on Science 14 (1):97-121.
    : In 1856, Michael Faraday (1791–1867) conducted nearly a year's worth of research on the optical properties of gold, in the course of which he discovered the first metallic colloids. Following our own discovery of hundreds of the specimens prepared by Faraday for this research, the present paper describes the cognitive role of these "epistemic artifacts" in the dynamics of Faraday's research practices. Analysis of the specimens, Faraday's Diary records, and replications of selected procedures (partly to replace missing kinds of (...)

    Rationality and the Psychology of Inference.Ryan D. Tweney & Michael E. Doherty - 1983 - Synthese 57 (November):129-138.
    Recent advances in the cognitive psychology of inference have been of great interest to philosophers of science. The present paper reviews one such area, namely studies based upon Wason's 4-card selection task. It is argued that interpretation of the results of the experiments is complex, because a variety of inference strategies may be used by subjects to select evidence needed to confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis. Empirical evidence suggests that which strategy is used depends in part on the semantic, syntactic, (...)

    Wegner's “Illusion” Anticipated: Jonathan Edwards on the Will.Ryan D. Tweney & Amy B. Wachholtz - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (5):676-676.
    Wegner's The Illusion of Conscious Will (2002) ignores an important aspect of the history of the concept: the determinism of Jonathan Edwards (1754) and the later response to this determinism by William James and others. We argue that Edwards's formulation, and James's resolution of the resulting dilemma, are superior to Wegner's.

    Procedural Representation in Michael Faraday's Scientific Thought.Ryan D. Tweney - 1986 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1986:336 - 344.
    The scientific activity of Michael Faraday is examined by focusing on the procedural aspects of his activity. Procedurality is shown to be a fundamental characteristic of his work at a variety of levels: metacognitive, heuristic, schematic, and theoretical. The evolution of his ideas about the goals of science is shown to reflect fundamental roots in a procedural epistemology, closely tied to his concept of field. The implications of this analysis for the philosophy of science are briefly considered.

    Rationality and the Wish to Die--A Response to Clarke.D. C. J. Ryan - 2000 - Journal of Medical Ethics 26 (3):217-217.
    sirIn a scholarly and thought-provoking paper, Clarke sets out to debunk the concept of “rational suicide” as nonsensical.1 His motivation in this is to undermine any support that the notion of rational suicide might give to a “categorical right to suicide”. If his enterprise were successful, however, it would go far beyond the “rights issue” and would have a profound impact on all arguments raised in support of euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide.Clarke's major thrust might be termed the argument from posthumous (...)

    The book Strategies of Secession and Counter-Secession edited by professors Ryan D. Grifiths and Diego Muro is a major and necessary contribution to the study of secessionism. The book should be read not only by scholars and students of territorial politics but by practitioners and political actors too. The chapters gathered in this volume offer useful reflections to understand this global phenomenon.

    Perceiving God Through Natural Beauty.Ryan West & Adam C. Pelser - 2015 - Faith and Philosophy 32 (3):293-312.
    In Perceiving God, William Alston briefly suggests the possibility of perceiving God indirectly through the perception of another object. Following recent work by C. Stephen Evans, we argue that Thomas Reid’s notion of “natural signs” helpfully illuminates how people can perceive God indirectly through natural beauty. First, we explain how some natural signs enable what Alston labels “indirect perception.” Second, we explore how certain emotions make it possible to see both beauty and the excellence of the minds behind beauty. Finally, (...)
