Most widely held works by Don Ross
Economic theory and cognitive science : microexplanation by Don Ross( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 466 libraries worldwide
Casting Daniel Dennett and Kenneth Binmore as its intellectual heroes, the book proposes a comprehensive model of economic theory that, Ross argues, does not supplant but recovers the core neoclassical insights and counters the caricaturish conception of neoclassicism so derided by advocates of behavioral or evolutionary economics."--Jacket
Daniel Dennett ( Book )
11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 429 libraries worldwide
Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Contemporary Philosophy in Focus will offer a series of introductory volumes to many of the dominant philosophical thinkers of the current age. Each volume will consist of newly commissioned essays that will cover all the major contributions of a preeminent philosopher in a systematic and accessible manner. Author of such groundbreaking and influential books as Consciousness Explained and Darwin's Dangerous Idea, Daniel C. Dennett has reached a huge general and professional audience that extends way beyond the confines of academic philosophy. He has made significant contributions to the study of consciousness, the development of the child's mind, cognitive ethnology, explanation in the social sciences, artificial intelligence, and evolutionary theory. This volume is the only truly introductory collection that traces these connections, explores the implications of Dennett's work, and furnishes the non-specialist with a fully-rounded account of why Dennett is such an important voice on the philosophical scene
Dennett's philosophy : a comprehensive assessment ( Book )
13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 399 libraries worldwide
Every thing must go : metaphysics naturalized by James Ladyman( Book )
21 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 344 libraries worldwide
In this book, the authors argue that the only kind of metaphysics that can contribute to objective knowledge is one based specifically on contemporary science as it really is, and not on philosophers' a priori intuitions, common sense, or simplifications of science
The Oxford handbook of philosophy of economics ( Book )
18 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 326 libraries worldwide
This title is a cutting-edge reference work to philosophical issues in the practice of economics. It is motivated by the view that there is more to economics than general equilibrium theory and that the philosophy of economics should reflect the diversity of activities and topics that currently occupy economists
What is addiction? by Don Ross( Book )
11 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 292 libraries worldwide
"The image of the addict in popular culture combines victimhood and moral failure; we sympathize with addicts in films and novels because of their suffering and their hard-won knowledge. And yet actual scientific knowledge about addiction tends to undermine this cultural construct. In What Is Addiction? leading addiction researchers from neuroscience, psychology, genetics, philosophy, economics, and other fields survey the latest findings in addiction science. They discuss such questions as whether addiction is one kind of condition, or several; if addiction is neurophysiological, psychological, or social, or incorporates aspects of all of these; to what extent addicts are responsible for their problems, and how this affects health and regulatory policies; and whether addiction is determined by inheritance or environment or both. The chapter authors discuss the possibility of a unifying basis for different addictions (considering both substance addiction and pathological gambling), offering both neurally and neuroscientifically grounded accounts as well as discussions of the social context of addiction. There can be no definitive answer yet to the question posed by the title of this book; but these essays demonstrate an advance over the simplistic conception embedded in popular culture."--Jacket
Distributed cognition and the will : individual volition and social context ( Book )
10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 263 libraries worldwide
Scientific metaphysics ( Book )
12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
Scientific Metaphysics collects original essays by some of the world's leading philosophers of science on the question of whether metaphysics can and should be naturalized--that is, conducted as a part of natural science. Some people will think that the idea of naturalized metaphysics is a contradiction in terms, on the grounds that metaphysics is by definition about matters that transcend the domain of empirical inquiry. Most of the authors here disagree, and hold that if metaphysics is to hold out any prospect of identifying objective truths, it must be continuous with and inspired by science. Many go further, and argue that it should be conducted in such a way as to be of some positive use to science. But beyond this each contributor differs with one another on numerous points of detail and emphasis. The essays presented here offer various points of view on the relationship between naturalized metaphysics, more traditional forms of metaphysics, and the wider history of philosophy. The discussions are rich in examples drawn from across the sciences: physics, biology, economics, psychology and others. Several chapters explore new ideas about the complex relationships between metaphysics, physics, and mathematics. At stake, in the end, is the question of whether metaphysics should give way to science and disappear from contemporary inquiry, or continue as an activity that unifies the particular sciences into a single naturalistic worldview

Development dilemmas : the methods and political ethics of growth policy by Melvin D Ayogu( Book )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 180 libraries worldwide
"This book brings together contributions from leading authorities on economics and political philosophy to survey current barriers to growth, including problems with policy and problems with concepts and thinking. Getting policies right, the contributors stress, is a complicated task in itself, but it also may not be enough; instead, people in both the developed and developing worlds may also need to reconsider basic and time-worn beliefs about facts, values, the measurement of data, rights, needs and the nature of government." "Of interest to economists and policy makers, Development Dilemmas is a long-awaited addition to the debate over economics and political philosophy in the developing world."--Jacket
