    The place of description in phenomenology’s naturalization
    Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences 7 (4): 563-583. 2008.
    The recent move to naturalize phenomenology through a mathematical protocol is a significant advance in consciousness research. It enables a new and fruitful level of dialogue between the cognitive sciences and phenomenology of such a nuanced kind that it also prompts advancement in our phenomenological analyses. But precisely what is going on at this point of ‘dialogue’ between phenomenological descriptions and mathematical algorithms, the latter of which are based on dynamical systems theory? …Read more

    Aquinas and the Individuation of Human Persons Revisited
    International Philosophical Quarterly 43 (2): 167-185. 2003.
    This paper focuses on Aquinas’s doctrine of individuation as it applies to human beings. There are three main sections. In the first, the general lines of Aquinas’s doctrine of individuation are presented in the context of discussing an article by Joseph Owens and some other recent work on individuation. I argue for form as the primary principle of individuation and specify the uniqueness of human individuality by reference to the degrees of perfection among things. The second section focuses on…Read more

    Thanks for the memories: Extending the hippocampal-diencephalic mnemonic system
    with John P. Aggleton
    Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (3): 471-479. 1999.
    The goal of our target article was to review a number of emerging facts about the effects of limbic damage on memory in humans and animals, and about divisions within recognition memory in humans. We then argued that this information can be synthesized to produce a new view of the substrates of episodic memory. The key pathway in this system is from the hippocampus to the anterior thalamic nuclei. There seems to be a general agreement that the importance of this pathway has previously been under…Read more

    The Ontological Turn in Education: The Place of the Learning Environment
    Journal of Critical Realism 8 (1): 5-34. 2009.
    This article explores some implications of using a critical realist theoretical framework for the study of education, in particular the core activities of learning and teaching. Many approaches have been made to understanding learning and teaching, but they tend to fall into one of two camps. The first includes approaches known as objectivism, instructivism and behaviourism, and is interpreted here as embodying principles of empiricism. The second comprises various takes on constructivism, parti…Read more

    Clouser claims that every theory is based on a religious presupposition, that is, on an idea of what is self-existent. Since all such ultimate presuppositions are unjustifiable in principle, those who presuppose the biblical faith in God as creator are equally respectable intellectually as are those who presuppose any other theory of reality. In fact, the presupposition of a creating God results in superior interpretations of reality in all its many facets. This thesis is laid out in four parts:…Read more

    I want to, but...
    Sinn Und Bedeutung 21 951-968. 2018.
    I want to see the concert, but I don’t want to take the long drive. Both of these desire ascriptions are true, even though I believe I’ll see the concert if and only if I take the drive.Yet they, and strongly conflicting desire ascriptions more generally, are predicted incompatible by the standard semantics, given two standard constraints. There are two proposed solutions. I argue that both face problems because they misunderstand how what we believe influences what we desire. I then sketch my o…Read more

    Is the National Numeracy Strategy Research-based?
    with Mike Askew, Dave Baker, Hazel Denvir, and Alison Millett
    British Journal of Educational Studies 46 (4): 362-385. 1998.
    The British Government has recently agreed proposals for a National Numeracy Strategy which claims to be based on evidence concerning 'what works'. This article reviews the literature in each key area in which recommendations are made, and makes a judgement of whether the claim is justified. In some areas (e.g. calculators) the recommendations run counter to the evidence.

    In sight but out of mind: Do competing views test the limits of perception without awareness?
    with Derek Besner
    Consciousness and Cognition 13 (2): 421-429. 2004.
    Over a century’s worth of research suggests that “perception” without awareness is a genuine phenomenon. However, relatively little research has explored the question of whether all visually presented information activates representations in long term memory without awareness. Two experiments explored the use of a figure–ground display consisting of competing views in which one view dominates the other such that subjects are unaware of the non-dominant view. Neither experiment provided evidence …Read more

    with Sarah Marusek
    International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 27 (2): 225-242. 2014.
    Henri Lefebvre speaks of space as a social product. Spatially, law operates as a social product when considering sites of imprisonment. Call them prisons, jails, or correctional facilities, people who violate the law go to these places for purposes of confinement, punishment, rehabilitation. However, with decades of increasing rates of incarceration, we can see that these places fail both the jailed and the external society to which they will return. Through overcrowding, exploitative private co…Read more
