  • Knowledge about Our Experience and Distinguishing Between Possibilities 

    Matuszkiewicz, Maria (Instytut Filozofii Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego, 2017)
    In my article I reconstruct the main threads of Robert Stalnaker’s book Our Knowledge of the Internal World, which focuses on the problem of our epistemic relation to our experience and the relation between experience ...
  • Semantic Internalism Is a Mistake 

    Bielecka, Krystyna (Instytut Filozofii Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego, 2017)

  • Watered Down Essences and Elusive Speech Communities: Two Objection Against Putnam's Twin Earth Argument 

    Hensel, Witold M. (Instytut Filozofii Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego, 2017)
    The paper presents two objections against Putnam’s Twin Earth argument, which was intended to secure semantic externalism. I first claim that Putnam’s reasoning rests on two assumptions and then try to show why these ...
  • The False Dichotomy Between Causal Realization and Semantic Computation 

    Miłkowski, Marcin (Instytut Filozofii Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego, 2017)
    In this paper, I show how semantic factors constrain the understanding of the computational phenomena to be explained so that they help build better mechanistic models. In particular, understanding what cognitive systems ...
