      Lia, Kjell; Meløe, Jakob; Overrein, Arne; Solberg, Mariann (Book; Bok, 1997)
      Artikler i anledning 25-års jubileet for examen philosophicum i Tromsø. <br><br>Da Universitetet i Tromsø mottok sitt aller første kull av studenter, 1. september 1972, var det allerede bestemt at det alt vesentlige av studentenes første semester skulle være viet arbeidet med examen philosophicum. 25 år etter at de første ex.phil.-studentene ved Universitetet i Tromsø kunne gå på forelesninger og ...
    • Samtale og sannhet hos Gadamer og Rorty 

      Solberg, Mariann (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2000)
      I dette paperet vil jeg ta for meg Hans-Georg Gadamers filosofiske hermeneutikk, og se den i forhold til Richard Rortys utlegning av hermeneutikken som “edification”. Dette gjør jeg ved å først ta for meg noen trekk ved Gadamers prosjekt slik det framstår i Warheit und Metode, og deretter vil jeg se på den bruk som Rorty gjør av Gadamers hermeneutikk slik det kommer til uttrykk i Philosophy and ...

    • Kunnskaps-sosiologi, relativisme og anti-realisme – ein gjennomgang av Kuhn, Wittgenstein, Winch og Bloor 

      Måseide, Atle (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2007)
      The problem of relativism and realism may appear in hermeneutic and mundane phenomenological projects. In this paper theories of Kuhn, Wittgenstein, Winch, and Bloor are discussed. Kuhn’s theory may be interpreted in at least two ways, one generating the problem of relativism and realism, the second avoiding the problem. Wittgenstein’s treatment of reciprocal understanding across cultural borders ...

    • Causation and evidence-based practice: an ontological review 

      Kerry, Roger; Eriksen, Thor Eirik; Lie, Svein Anders Noer; Mumford, Stephen; Anjum, Rani Lill (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012-09-21)
      This paper explores the nature of causation within the framework of evidence-based practice (EBP) for health care. The aims of the paper were first to define and evaluate how causation is presently accounted for in EBP; second, to present an alternative causal account by which health care can develop in both its clinical application and its scientific research activity. The paper was premised on the ...

    • No Need to Get Emotional? Emotions and Heuristics 

      Szigeti, Andras (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Many believe that values are crucially dependent on emotions. This paper focuses on epistemic aspects of the putative link between emotions and value by asking two related questions. First, how exactly are emotions supposed to latch onto or track values? And second, how well suited are emotions to detecting or learning about values? To answer the first question, the paper develops the heuristics-model ...
    • At the borders of medical reasoning - aetiological and ontological challenges of medically unexplained symptoms 

      Eriksen, Thor Eirik; Kerry, Roger; Lie, Svein Anders Noer; Mumford, Stephen; Anjum, Rani Lill (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) remain recalcitrant to the medical profession, proving less suitable for homogenic treatment with respect to their aetiology, taxonomy and diagnosis. While the majority of existing medical research methods are designed for large scale population data and sufficiently homogenous groups, MUS are characterised by their heterogenic and complex nature. As a result, ...

    • Causation in Evidence-Based Medicine: In reply to Strand and Parkkinen 

      Kerry, Roger; Eriksen, Thor Eirik; Lie, Svein Anders Noer; Mumford, Stephen; Anjum, Rani Lill (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Strand and Parkkinen criticize our dispositional account of causation in evidence-based medicine for failing to provide a proper epistemology of causal knowledge. In particular, they claim that we do not explain how causal inferences should be drawn. In response, we point out that dispositionalism does indeed have an account of the epistemology of causation, including counterfactual dependence, ...
    • Pragmatic universalism – A basis of coexistence of multiple diversities 

      De Cuzzani, Paola Maria; Johnsen, Kari Hoftun (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-02-03)
      The authors examine the paradigms hitherto employed to understand and regulate relations between minorities and majority: universalism, multiculturalism/differentialism and interculturalism. These theories are referring to an idea of original purity rooted in a classificatory logic that ultimately inhibits positive coexistence. The complexities of belonging and practices of translation underscore the ...
    • Critical Thinking in Online Educational Discussions Measured as Progress through Inquiry Phases: A Discussion of the Cognitive Presence Construct in the Community of Inquiry Framework 

      Breivik, Jens (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      The development of critical thinking is a rationale for higher education and an important aspect of online educational discussions. A key component in most accounts of critical thinking is to evaluate the tenability of claims. The community of inquiry framework is among the most influential frameworks for research on online educational discussions. In this framework, cognitive presence accounts ...
    • Rose’s Prevention Paradox 

      Thompson, Christopher Jeremy (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2016-02-08)
      Geoffrey Rose's ‘prevention paradox’ occurs when a population‐based preventative health measure that brings large benefits to the community – such as compulsory seatbelts, a ‘fat tax’, or mass immunisation – offers little to each participating individual. Although the prevention paradox is not obviously a paradox in the sense in which philosophers understand the term, it does raise important normative ...
    • The politics of Dissensus and Political Liberalism 

      Alnes, Jan Harald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-20)
      An emerging branch of political theory, ‘the politics of dissensus’, starts out from the premise that in order to understand the politics of constitutional democracies, one needs to focus on parliamentary politics, which compromises both institutional settings and debates. Politics takes place among adversaries, and dissensus and argumentation pro et contra is the rule. The focus on the conditions ...
