(Biological) Life: The Pedagogy of an Architectural Concept [chapter]

Stephen Loo, University of South Australia, AU

Artifact Dualism, Materiality, and the Hard Problem of Ontology: Some Critical Remarks on the Dual Nature of Technical Artifacts Program

Andrés Vaccari
2011 Philosophy & Technology  
My minimal, naïve realism will hopefully be broad enough to capture this common ground. But what should a metaphysic of technology explain, exactly?  ...  Following Searle's (1995) distinction, I argue that we should account for features of artifacts as both epistemically and ontologically objective.  ...  The same way that intentionalism argues for the ontological respectability of artifacts on the shared common ground of Cartesian metaphysics, so it appears that Dual Nature theorists challenge the claims  ...
