This page contains links to some of my academic papers (excluding the majority which are on History of Philosophy) that are currently available on the Web. In most cases the printed version will differ slightly from those given here, due to publisher's house style modifications etc. In some, the papers here are to be preferred, either because they contain slight improvements (e.g. addition of more recent references – such improvements always being noted in the text) or, more seriously (e.g. in the case of the 1990 Joint Session paper) because the published paper contained serious misprints introduced after proof stage.
