  1. 1. Non-Gods and Gods: A Cosmontological Treatise

    Author : Martin Lembke; Administration; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Existence of God; Cosmological Argument; Ontological Argument; Anselm; Divine Attributes; Whatever it is better to be than not to be ; Omniscience; Omnipotence; Impeccability;

    Abstract : Incorporating the conceptual resources of the ontological argument for the existence of God into the underlying rationale of the cosmological ditto, I here present and defend a ‘cosmontological’ synthesis: an a posteriori argument for the existence of an all-perfect GOD: a being who, in virtue of being whatever it is better to be than not to be, is that than which a greater cannot be thought. Central to this synthesis is a very plausible principle called Exclusion: For any class (or property extension) C, if C is non-empty then there is an explanation for the non-emptiness of C if and only if there is at least one non-member of C which causes C to be non-empty.

  2. 2. Logics of Knowledge and Cryptography : Completeness and Expressiveness

    Author : Mika Cohen; Mads Dam; Alessio Lomuscio; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; epistemic logic; first-order logic; formal cryptography; static equivalence; security protocols; BAN logic; multi-agent system; completeness; logical omniscience problem; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : An understanding of cryptographic protocols requires that we examine the knowledge of protocol participants and adversaries: When a participant receives a message, does she know who sent it? Does she know that the message is fresh, and not merely a replay of some old message? Does a network spy know who is talking to whom? This thesis studies logics of knowledge and cryptography. Specifically, the thesis addresses the problem of how to make the concept of knowledge reflect feasible computability within a Kripke-style semantics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analyticity, Necessity and Belief : Aspects of two-dimensional semantics

    Author : Eric Johannesson; Peter Pagin; Dag Westerståhl; Graeme Forbes; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; two-dimensional semantics; quantified modal logic; propositional attitudes; belief ascriptions; Kripke; descriptivism; necessity; apriority; analyticity; Theoretical Philosophy; teoretisk filosofi;

    Abstract : A glass couldn't contain water unless it contained H2O-molecules. Likewise, a man couldn't be a bachelor unless he was unmarried. Now, the latter is what we would call a conceptual or analytical truth. It's also what we would call a priori. READ MORE

  4. 4. Panentheism, Panpsychism and Neuroscience : In Search of an Alternative Metaphysical Framework in Relation to Neuroscience, Consciousness, Free Will, and Theistic Beliefs

    Author : Oliver Li; Mikael Stenmark; Karin Johannesson; Aku Visala; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; physicalism; dualism; neuroscience; consciousness; free will; process philosophy; panpsychism; panexperientialism; panentheism; emergence theory; science and religion; theism; Philosophy of Religion; Religionsfilosofi;

    Abstract : This thesis philosophically examines, critically discusses, and proposes how a plausible philosophical framework of consciousness and free will should be formulated. This framework takes into account contemporary scientific research on human consciousness and free will and its possible challenges; also it is examined how this framework should be related to theistic beliefs – especially those connected to human and divine consciousness and free will.
