Starmaking: Realism, Anti-Realism, and Irrealism

Starmaking brings jointly a cluster of labor released over the last 35 years by way of Nelson Goodman and Harvard colleagues, Hilary Putnam and Israel Scheffler, at the conceptual connections among monism and pluralism, absolutism and relativism, and idealism and diverse notions of realism - matters which are imperative to metaphysics and epistemology.

More than Nature Needs: Language, Mind, and Evolution

The human brain is an not likely evolutionary variation. How did people gather cognitive capacities way more strong than whatever a hunting-and-gathering primate had to live on? Alfred Russel Wallace, co-founder with Darwin of evolutionary thought, observed people as "divine exceptions" to ordinary choice.

Example text

We relied upon the notion A COGNITIVE MODEL OF THE APPRAISAL PROCESS 37 of categories, and suggested that raters assign a piece of information to a category they see as appropriate. Over time, the strength of the category assignment builds and, in most cases, it is the category information that is eventually stored in memory, rather than the actual behavior that triggered the category (I will discuss this process when raw behavior is actually accessible in much more detail in later chapters). The categories we proposed are those which are known as schemata.

How large a raise to give a worker) will result in a search for distinctiveness information. (P. 374) As we shall see in the next chapter, we did design a study to test these propositions in somewhat modified form. Time pressures There was a fairly well-established literature to support the notion that the time pressures facing a rater would also influence information acquisition processes. , Christensen-Szalanski, 1980; Wright, 1974) suggested that decision makers facing time constraints tended to search for (and use) fewer cues, and tended to rely more heavily upon negative information.

That is, rating accuracy should be computed as a function of a rater’s ability to accurately evaluate those performance incidents she/he observes, and not consider other ratee performance if it was not observed. This again emphasized the importance of the rater as an active player in the appraisal process by recognizing that rater observation or acquisition activities would actually define the limits of rating accuracy. This led to a definition of rating accuracy known as observational accuracy (Murphy, 1991), and acknowledged that ratings could be no more accurate than the information upon which they were based.
