Jeffrey Noonan
2009 Socialist Studies/Études Socialistes  
This engagement suggests a conception of philosophy as a uniquely practical discipline distinguished from empirical science by its unique capacity to synthesise values from the facts of life.  ...  These ultimate foundations, the most basic facts of life, then function as the material out of which philosophy can synthesise universal values and posit these as the normative foundation of a free social  ...  Instead, philosophy as engaged critique of the present argues against ruling system values on the basis of deeper values synthesised by the philosophical understanding of the selfcreative processes at  ...

Maria Formosinho, Paulo Jesus, Carlos Reis

Protocol synthesis with dialogue structure theory

Jarred McGinnis, David Robertson, Chris Walton
2005 Proceedings of the fourth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '05  
Agents can have a controlled and verifiable mechanism to synthesise and communicate their interaction protocol during their participation in a multiagent system.  ...  A protocol is said to be more tolerant if it has a very liberal definition of the conversation space.  ...  The agent receiving the synthesised protocol can follow it blindly without needing to understand that its dialogical actions satisfy some commitment, norm, or rule of a dialogue game.  ...
