    A Connoisseur of Magical Coincidences: Chance, Creativity and Poiesis From a Biosemiotic Perspective.Wendy Wheeler - 2014 - Biosemiotics 7 (3):389-404.
    Semiotics, in the guise of the limited Saussurean semiology, has been widely used in the humanities and in cultural studies for the past 20 to 30 years at least. With the advent, nearly 20 years ago, of the environmental humanities, including the new field of humanities animal studies, the weaknesses of this mode of analysis became increasingly clear. This essay forms part of a larger attempt to develop a Peirce-informed biosemiotic theory capable of affording conceptual tools for the broad-based study (...)

  7. Nietzsche’s Philosophical Context: An Intellectual Biography.Thomas H. Brobjer - 2008 - University of Illinois Press.
    Friedrich Nietzsche was immensely influential and, counter to most expectations, also very well read. An essential new reference tool for those interested in his thinking, Nietzsche’s Philosophical Context identifies the chronology and huge range of philosophical books that engaged him. Rigorously examining the scope of this reading, Thomas H. Brobjer consulted over two thousand volumes in Nietzsche’s personal library, as well as his book bills, library records, journals, letters, and publications. This meticulous investigation also considers many of the annotations (...)

    One of the central, abiding, and unresolved questions in environmental ethics has focused on the criterion for moral considerability or practical respect. In this essay, I call that question itself into question and argue that the search for this criterion should be abandoned because (1) it presupposes the ethical legitimacy of the Western project of planetary domination, (2) the philosophical methods that are andshould be used to address the question properly involve giving consideration in a root sense to everything, (3) (...)

    Good Sport: Why Our Games Matter - and How Doping Undermines Them.Thomas H. Murray - 2018 - Oup Usa.
    Good Sport argues that the values and meanings embedded within sport provide the guidance we need to make difficult decisions about fairness and performance-enhancing technologies. By examining how sport's history, rules and practices identify and celebrate natural talent and dedication, the book illuminates not just what we champion in the athletic arena but more broadly what we value in human achievement.

    A Cross-National Comparison of University Students' Perceptions Regarding the Ethics and Acceptability of Sales Practices.Thomas H. Stevenson & Charles D. Bodkin - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (1):45 - 55.
    This scenario-based study examines the perceptions of university students in the United States and Australia regarding the ethics and acceptability of various sales practices. Study results indicate several significant differences between U.S. and Australian university students regarding the perceptions of ethical and acceptable sales practices. These differences centered on company-salesperson and salesperson-customer relationships. The findings are significant for the employer, and have consequences for customers and competitors. They also have implications for recruiters and managers of salespeople, academics with an interest (...)

    Nietzsche's Relation to Historical Methods and Nineteenth-Century German Historiography.Thomas H. Brobjer - 2007 - History and Theory 46 (2):155–179.
    Nietzsche is generally regarded as a severe critic of historical method and scholarship; this view has influenced much of contemporary discussions about the role and nature of historical scholarship. In this article I argue that this view is seriously mistaken . I do so by examining what he actually says about understanding history and historical method, as well as his relation to the founders of modern German historiography . I show, contrary to most expectations, that Nietzsche knew these historians well (...)

  25. The Incarceration of Wildness: Wilderness Areas as Prisons.Thomas H. Birch - 1990 - Environmental Ethics 12 (1):3-26.
    Even with the very best intentions , Western culture’s approach to wilderness and wildness, the otherness of nature, tends to be one of imperialistic domination and appropriation. Nevertheless, in spite of Western culture’s attempt to gain total control over nature by imprisoning wildness in wilderness areas, which are meant to be merely controlled “simulations” of wildness, a real wildness, a real otherness, can still be found in wilderness reserves . This wildness can serve as the literal ground for the subversion (...)

    Making Our Measures Match Perceptions: Do Severity and Type Matter When Assessing Academic Misconduct Offenses?Thomas H. Stone, Jennifer L. Kisamore, I. M. Jawahar & Jocelyn Holden Bolin - 2014 - Journal of Academic Ethics 12 (4):251-270.
    Traditional approaches to measurement of violations of academic integrity may overestimate the magnitude and severity of cheating and confound panic with planned cheating. Differences in the severity and level of premeditation of academic integrity violations have largely been unexamined. Results of a study based on a combined sample of business students showed that students are more likely to commit minor cheating offenses and engage in panic-based cheating as compared to serious and planned cheating offenses. Results also indicated there is a (...)

    Public Relations, Professionalism, and the Public Interest.Thomas H. Bivins - 1993 - Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):117 - 126.
    The public interest statement contained in the PRSA Code of Professional Standards is unduly vague and provides neither a working definition of public interest nor any guidance for the performance of what most professions consider to be a primary value. This paper addresses the question of what might constitute public relations service in the public interest, and calls for more stringent guidelines to be developed whereby the profession may advance its service goals more clearly.

  33. Romantic Love.Thomas H. Smith - 2011 - Essays in Philosophy 12 (1):68-92.
    Nozick provides us with a compelling characterization of romantic love, but, as I argue, he under-describes the phenomenon, for he fails to distinguish it from attitudes that those who are not romantically involved may bear to each other. Frankfurt also offers a compelling characterization of love, but he is sceptical about its application to the case of romantic love. I argue that each account has the resources with which to complete the other. I consider a preliminary synthesis of the two (...)

    Interrelationships of Marcellus Shale Gas Production to Frac-Induced Microseismicity, Interpreted Minor Faults and Fractures Zones, and Stimulated Reservoir Volume, Greene County, Pennsylvania.Thomas H. Wilson, Ariel K. Hart & Pete Sullivan - 2016 - Interpretation: SEG 4 (1):T15-T30.
    The data we analyzed are from a Marcellus Shale gas field in Greene County, southwestern Pennsylvania. We first investigated the relationship between microseismic event trends and discontinuities extracted from 3D seismic data and their relationship to [Formula: see text]. This analysis was followed by an examination of the relationship of cumulative gas production to radiated energy, stimulated reservoir volume, and energy density. We have determined that microseismic event trends observed in multiwell hydraulic fracture treatments were similar to the trends of (...)

  39. Applying Ethical Theory to Public Relations.Thomas H. Bivins - 1987 - Journal of Business Ethics 6 (3):195 - 200.
    There seems to be a prevailing belief among public relations professionals that ethical problems can easily be solved by either reference to a simplified code or citation of a few well-worn platitudes. However, the route to a more complete understanding of questions of ethics is circuitous and often painstaking. By applying a number of ethical theories to a public relations problem, both the skilled public relations technician and the public relations professional may arrive at similar conclusions concerning moral obligations; however, (...)

    Joint Commitment.Thomas H. Smith - 2018 - ProtoSociology 35:38-52.
    I defend some of Gilbert’s central claims about our capacity jointly to commit ourselves, and what follows from an exercise of it. I argue that, to explain these claims, we do not need to suppose, as Gilbert does, that we ever are jointly committed, that is, jointly in a state of being committed. I offer a diagnosis of why the gratuitousness of this supposition has been overlooked.

    Playing One’s Part.Thomas H. Smith - 2011 - Review of Philosophy and Psychology 2 (2):213-44.
    The consensus in the philosophical literature on joint action is that, sometimes at least, when agents intentionally jointly φ, this is explicable by their intending that they φ, for a period of time prior to their φ-ing. If this be granted, it poses a dilemma. For agents who so intend either severally or jointly intend that they φ. The first option is ruled out by two stipulations that we may consistently make: (i) that at least one of the agents non-akratically (...)

    Marcellus Shale Model Stimulation Tests and Microseismic Response Yield Insights Into Mechanical Properties and the Reservoir Discrete Fracture Network.Thomas H. Wilson, Tim Carr, B. J.

    We have developed stimulation tests of a model discrete fracture network in the Marcellus Shale reservoir, Morgantown, West Virginia. The microseismic response observed from the modeled stage is characteristic of that observed in several stages along the length of the horizontal well, so that the workflow developed in this paper can be easily extended to other stages in this and other Marcellus Shale wells. The model DFN is designed using log data, including fracture image logs from vertical pilot and horizontal (...)

    The current status of Beilock and Carr's "execution focus" theory of choking under pressure in performance of a sensorimotor skill is reviewed and assessed, mainly from the perspective of cognitive psychology, and put into the context of a wider range of issues, attempting to take philosophical analysis into account. These issues include other kinds of skills, pre-performance practice, post-performance evaluation and repair, and integrating new and creative achievements into repertoires of heavily practiced routines. The focus is on variation in the (...)
