Attention Is (not) All You Need for Commonsense Reasoning

Tassilo Klein, Moin Nabi
2019 Proceedings of the 57th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
Our proposed attention-guided commonsense reasoning method is conceptually simple yet empirically powerful.  ...  In this paper, we describe a simple re-implementation of BERT for commonsense reasoning.  ...  Then, we introduce Maximum Attention Score (MAS), and explain how it can be utilized for commonsense reasoning.  ...

Folk psychology' is not folk psychology

Matthew Ratcliffe
2006 Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences  
Thus 'folk psychology', as commonly construed, is not folk psychology.  ...  This paper disputes the claim that our understanding of others is enabled by a commonsense or 'folk' psychology, whose 'core' involves the attribution of intentional states in order to predict and explain  ...  The simplest response is that the core constituents of commonsense psychology are readily apparent to commonsense and so FP is in no need of defence.  ...

How not to Argue from Science to Skepticism

Stephen Maitzen
2014 International Journal for the Study of Skepticism  
For at least several decades, and arguably since the time of Descartes, it has been fashionable to offer scientific or quasi-scientific arguments for skepticism about human knowledge.  ...  I critique five attempts to argue for skeptical conclusions from the findings of science and scientifically informed common sense.  ...  Suppose that a near-enough duplication manages to produce in you the false belief that you're being pinched; is that episode grounds for inferring that any perceptual belief at all could be deceptively  ...

After reviewing traditional definitions of the semantic range and general behavior of this pronoun, I argue that a more accurate account that the one provided by standard grammars is needed for us to better  ...  In particular, it is argued that uno is utilized by politicians to serve principally two purposes: 1) avoidance of bluntness - a means of preserving professional etiquette, and 2) avoidance of self- praise  ...  'when you have your first child, it's all worrying all the time').  ...

On Referring and Not Referring [chapter]

Kent Bach
2008 Reference  
For all I know, and contrary to what I can reasonably suppose, you could be referring to a quiet duck that you recognize by its distinctive color.  ...  Even if that is correct, it is not a good reason for denying that expressions refer. It's a good reason only for denying that they refer independently of context.  ...

Chamberlain: Collusion, Not Appeasement

Christopher Hitchens
1995 Monthly review  
She is probably going to do so anyhow-anyhow we can't stop her. What is all the fuss about?" Leibovitz's first language is not English. Indeed, I'm not sure it is even his second language.  ...  It is almost enough to convince you, if mixed with enough Shakespearean rhetoric, that England is guarded by a special providence.

Lawyers Not in Love

Steven Classen
2007 Television & New Media  
The Defenders offers clear illustrations of the ways in which popular narratives not only depict juridical roles but also perform them, specifying when and where "law" begins and ends.  ...  Defenders television series (1961)(1962)(1963)(1964)(1965) and the Showtime motion picture series (1997)(1998) by the same name rearticulated enduring tensions between law's formalism and just desires for  ...  This type of TV presentation is the most insidious style of lobbying for all the insane, immoral and just plain quack movements.
