Xavier Zubiri: An Introduction, Brad E. Stone

In this essay, I seek to present Zubiri the man, the teacher, and the writer. Zubiri's influence as a philosopher is quite apparent given the large body of translations and secondary literature on him in many different languages and cultures.

Zubiri And The Very Problem Of The Problem Of Evil, Brad E. Stone

This essay continues the line of thought started in a previous article of mine, "The Very Problem of the Problem of God in Zubiri and Unamuno,"in The Xavier Zubiri Review 6 (2004), pp. 73-88. There I argued that true atheism is impossible if Xavier Zubiri and Miguel de Unamuno are correct about the re&son human beings talk about "God" at all.

Reliabilism: Modal, Probabilistic Or Contextualist, Peter Baumann Jan 2009

Reliabilism: Modal, Probabilistic Or Contextualist, Peter Baumann

Philosophy Faculty Works

This paper discusses two versions of reliabilism: modal and probabilistic reliabilism. Modal reliabilism faces the problem of the missing closeness metric for possible worlds while probalistic reliabilism faces the problem of the relevant reference class. Despite the severity of these problems, reliabilism is still very plausible (also for independent reasons). I propose to stick with reliabilism, propose a contextualist (or, alternatively, harmlessly relativist) solution to the above problems and suggest that probabilistic reliabilism has the advantage over modal reliabilism.
