  • What Philosophy Ought to Be (2013)

    The proper task of philosophy is to keep alive awareness of what our most fundamental, important, urgent problems are, what our best attempts are at solving them and, if possible, what needs to be done to improve these attempts.

  • Constructive Recollection THESIS (2013)

    We all live in the same world and we all have our trust, expectations, presumptions, predictions, beliefs and intentions.

  • The Epistemology of the Financial Crisis: Complexity, Causation, Law, and Judgment (2010)

    The focus on complexity as a problem of the financial meltdown of 2008–2009 suggests that crisis is in part epistemological: we now know enough about financial and economic systems to be threatened by their complexity, but not enough to relieve our fears and anxieties about them. What marks the current...

    Karola Stotz Recent years have seen the development of an approach both to general philosophy and philosophy of science often referred to as ‘experimental philosophy’ or just ‘X-Phi’.
