    Visualizations in mathematics2008In: Erkenntnis, ISSN 0165-0106, E-ISSN 1572-8420, Vol. 68, no 3, p. 345-358Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we discuss visualizations in mathematics from a historical and didactical perspective. We consider historical debates from the 17th and 19th centuries regarding the role of intuition and visualizations in mathematics. We also consider the problem of what a visualization in mathematical learning can achieve. In an empirical study we investigate what mathematical conclusions university students made on the basis of a visualization. We emphasize that a visualization in mathematics should always be considered in its proper context.

    Disagreement: Ethics and Elsewhere2014In: Erkenntnis, ISSN 0165-0106, E-ISSN 1572-8420, Vol. 79, no S1, p. 55-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to a traditional argument against moral realism, the existence of objective moral facts is hard to reconcile with the existence of radical disagreement over moral issues. An increasingly popular response to this argument is to insist that it generalizes too easily. Thus, it has been argued that if one rejects moral realism on the basis of disagreement then one is committed to similar views about epistemology and meta-ethics itself, since the disagreements that arise in those areas are just as deep as the moral ones. This in turn is taken to show that a moral anti-realist should seek another basis for her position. For, if she extends her anti-realism also to epistemology and meta-ethics, then she is no longer in a position to say that her meta-ethical position is true or that it is a fact that we have reason to accept it. She therefore seems left with a position that hardly even seems to be a position. The purpose of the paper is to challenge this response and in particular the claim that the argument from disagreement applies equally well to epistemology and meta-ethics as it does to ethics. It is argued that, despite contrary appearances, there are crucial differences between the disagreements that occur in ethics compared to those that arise in the other areas. Moreover, even granted that the disagreements are just as deep, there are other differences between the areas that nevertheless justify drawing different conclusions about their status from the existence of those disagreements.

    Stimulus Meaning Debunked1998In: Erkenntnis, ISSN 0165-0106, E-ISSN 1572-8420, Vol. 48, no 3, p. 371-385Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    W. V. Quine appears to have introduced his notion 'stimulus meaning' for two main purposes: To define the concept of an observation sentence, and to provide criteria for translation manuals. I argue that it is not useful for any of these purposes, in part by questioning Quine's views on semantics and epistemology. I also survey some alternative purposes that the notion is supposed to serve, and argue that its utility relative to these purposes is also limited. I therefore suggest that we let the notion drop out of our philosophical toolbox.
