    Vogt, David G. C. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2024)
    The Moral Equality Account of Hypocrisy (ME) is a prominent theory of why hypocrites lack moral standing to blame. Hypocrites make exceptions for themselves and thereby implicitly deny moral equality, which is an essential ...
  • Logical Instrumentalism and Anti-exceptionalism about Logic 

    Commandeur, Leon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2023)
    This paper critically examines logical instrumentalism as it has been put forth recently in the anti-exceptionalism about logic debate. I will argue that if one wishes to uphold the claim that logic is significantly similar ...
  • The Partially Impartial Spectator 

    Sivertsen, Sveinung (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2023)

    Ulvenes, Åsmund (Master thesis, 2024-02-01)
    Sammendrag Denne oppgaven handler om bruk av personargumenter mot stortingspolitikere. Argumentasjonsteoretisk regnes personargumenter vanligvis som feilslutninger, fordi de forkaster en uttalelse på grunn av den som ...

  • Kan sjølvmord vere rasjonelle? Og i så fall, kva vil det seie for nullvisjonen for sjølvmord? 

    Hommedal, Eirik Austefjord (Master thesis, 2023-09-01)
    I 2020 fremja regjeringa ein nullvisjon for sjølvmord i Noreg. I denne avhandlinga argumenterer eg for at eit normativt ideal om null sjølvmord ikkje kan vere riktig, då rasjonelle sjølvmord faktisk er moglege. For å ...

    Grieg, John Christian Edvard (Master thesis, 2022-05-20)
    Det finnes ikke noe overnaturlig, verden forstås gjennom vitenskap og matematikk som gir innsikt i hvordan naturen fungerer. Matematikk er heller ikke overnaturlig. Det er utgangspunktet for denne oppgaven. Første del av ...

    Eilertsen, Andre (Master thesis, 2022-05-20)
    En nylig debatt i epistemologi har tatt for seg spørsmålet om hvor tolerant (eng.: permissive) rasjonalitet er: hvorvidt rasjonelle agenter med samme bevis om en påstands sannhet kan komme til forskjellige konklusjoner når ...

    Der Beitrag diskutiert, inwieweit eine generell nonkognitiv ausgerichtete Deutung von religiösen Glaubenssätzen der tatsächlichen Grammatik dieser Sätze gerecht wird. Die Antwort ist nein. Nonkognitivistische Ansätze sind ...
  • Mellom Butler og Bourdieu: En undersøkelse av hvordan språk påvirker kjønn 

    Ystaas, Oda Rømo (Master thesis, 2023-05-29)
    Jeg hevder at det er nyttig å lese Judith Butler og Pierre Bourdieu sammen for å forstå hvordan språk påvirker kjønn. Jeg argumenterer for dette ved å fokusere spesifikt på hvordan Bourdieu sitt konsept av habitus kan ...

    Morton, Anthony Charles (Master thesis, 2023-05-29)
