  • Can there be belief without evidence? 

    Wilkinson, S (Universidad de Oviedo, 2016-01-01)
    I present a view of belief (called the "downstream-only view") according to which there can be belief without evidence. I defend it against two influential objections. The first objection is grounded in the intuition that ...
  • Voices and Thoughts in Psychosis: An Introduction 

    Wilkinson, S; Alderson-Day, B (Springer Verlag, 2015-10-21)
    In this introduction we present the orthodox account of auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs), a number of worries for this account, and some potential responses open to its proponents. With some problems still remaining, ...
  • A Mental Files Approach to Delusional Misidentification 

    Wilkinson, S (Springer Verlag, 2015-04-23)
    I suggest that we can think of delusional misidentification in terms of systematic errors in the management of mental files. I begin by sketching the orthodox “bottom-up” aetiology of delusional misidentification. I suggest ...
  • The Representation of Agents in Auditory Verbal Hallucinations 

    Wilkinson, S; Bell, V (Wiley, 2016-02-02)
    Current models of auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs) tend to focus on the mechanisms underlying their occurrence, but often fail to address the content of the auditory experience. In other words, they tend to ask why ...
  • How anxiety induces verbal hallucinations 

    Ratcliffe, M; Wilkinson, S (Elsevier, 2015-12-09)
    Verbal hallucinations are often associated with pronounced feelings of anxiety, and it has also been suggested that anxiety somehow triggers them. In this paper, we offer a phenomenological or ‘personal-level’ account of ...
  • Thought Insertion Clarified 

    Ratcliffe, M; Wilkinson, S (Imprint Academic, 2015-01-01)
    'Thought insertion' in schizophrenia involves somehow experiencing one's own thoughts as someone else's. Some philos-ophers try to make sense of this by distinguishing between ownership and agency: one still experiences ...
  • Accounting for the phenomenology and varieties of auditory verbal hallucination within a predictive processing framework 

    Wilkinson, S (Elsevier, 2014-10-03)
    Two challenges that face popular self-monitoring theories (SMTs) of auditory verbal hallucination (AVH) are that they cannot account for the auditory phenomenology of AVHs and that they cannot account for their variety. ...
  • Levels and kinds of explanation: lessons from neuropsychiatry 

    Wilkinson, S (Frontiers Media, 2014-04-29)
    I use an example from neuropsychiatry, namely delusional misidentification, to show a distinction between levels of explanation and kinds of explanation. Building on a pragmatic view of explanation, different kinds of ...
  • Hearing Soundless Voices 

    Wilkinson, S (Johns Hopkins University Press for Association for the Advancement of Philosophy and Psychiatry (AAPP), 2018)
    Reports of hearing soundless voices are perplexing and yet not uncommon in psychiatric contexts. In this paper, I try first to understand why we talk about experiential modalities at all, and in the way that we do, and ...
  • Egocentric and Encyclopedic Doxastic States in Delusions of Misidentification 

    Wilkinson, S (Springer Verlag, 2013-01-09)
    A recent debate in the literature on delusions centers on the question of whether delusions are beliefs or not. In this paper, an overlooked distinction between egocentric and encyclopedic doxastic states is introduced and ...
  • Delusions, dreams, and the nature of identification 

    Wilkinson, S (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2013-08-16)
    Delusional misidentification is commonly understood as the product of an inference on the basis of evidence present in the subject's experience. For example, in the Capgras delusion, the patient sees someone who looks like ...
  • The Status of Delusion in the Light of Marcus’s Revisionary Proposals 

    Wilkinson, S (Theoria, 2013-09-06)
    Marcus’s view of belief is applied to the debate that centers around the question, “Are delusions beliefs?” Two consequences of this are that, i) the question, “Are delusions beliefs?”, strictly speaking, needs rephrasing ...
  • Beyond Believing Badly 

    Wilkinson, S (Universidad de Oviedo, 2013-10-01)
    I examine the view, put forward by Gregory Currie and collaborators, that delusions are not beliefs because delusional subjects break constitutive norms of believing. This hinges on two different types of commitment: one ...
  • Cutting the Face: Kinship, State and Social Media Conflict in Networked Jordan 

    Hughes, G (Berghahn, 2018-06-01)
    The local uptake of new media in the Middle East is shaped by deep histories of imperialism, state building, resistance and accommodation. In contemporary Jordan, social media is simultaneously encouraging identification ...
  • Umamimi: the wind of heaven blows between the gentle flicks of my robotic horse ears 

    North, S (Museum of Archaeology, University of Stavanger and the Norwegian University College for Agriculture and Rural Development, 2018-09-27)
    “The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears” (anonymous, widely attributed as a proverb of Arabic origin). ‘Umamimi’ is a project based at the intersection between Computational Anthrozoology (North, ...
  • Affective Affordances and Psychopathology 

    Krueger, JW; Colombetti, G (Quodlibet edizioni, 2019)
    Self-disorders in depression and schizophrenia have been the focus of much recent work in phenomenological psychopathology. But little has been said about the role the material environment plays in shaping the affective ...
  • Care as an alternative to killing? Reconceptualising veterinary end of life care for animals 

    Hurn, S; Badman-King, A (American Anthropological Association for Society for Medical Anthropology (SMA), 2018)
    Palliative care is routinely offered to humans in the UK, while euthanasia remains illegal. The converse is true for nonhuman animals (henceforth animals). Indeed, euthanasia is widely accepted as the appropriate course ...

  • Gregor Mendel and the History of Heredity 

    Muller-Wille, SEW (Springer, 2019)
    Gregor Mendel’s paper “Experiments on Plant Hybrids” (1866) has become a paradigmatic case in the historiography of the life sciences because production and reception of a “discovery” sharply fell apart, thus raising ...
