    Thomas A. Stapleford
    Abstract:

    Scientific research, considered in isolation, is often regarded as an amoral activity. In this view, ethics exists only around the margins of research – perhaps in the choice of topics pursued, the treatment of experimental subjects, or the use of results. Such an account seems to explain why brilliant scientists can be deeply flawed, at times even vicious, human beings. It also reflects a distinction between “making” and “acting” that found its most influential formulation in Aristotle’s dis…

    Abstract:

    Malcolm Rorty is best known to historians of economics as the primary organizer and founder of the National Bureau of Economic Research. This essay situations Rorty’s interest in economics against the backdrop of his early career in telephone engineering at American Telephone & Telegraph. I argue that distinct structural features of telephone engineering in general, and AT&T in particular, created overlaps between the practices engineering and economics, and also opened space for Rort…

    Abstract:

    “Chaucer’s Ghoast” is an anonymous collection of twelve short poems (one set within a short story in prose) published in London in 1672, and evidently never reprinted since. It has been described as a loose translation of selections from Ovid, and sometimes (e.g. by the NUC) attributed to Charles Cotton (1630-87). Joshua has identified it as a modernization of selections from CA, and reprints ten lines from the two works (from the story of Pygmaleon) to demonstrate the closeness…

    Abstract:

    The picturesque theorists disagree vehemently over whether the picturesque deformity that can be appreciated in buildings and landscapes could also be appreciated in people with deformities, be these people real or represented. William Gilpin writes about ruins and people in ways that suggest that they possess the same aesthetic value. Fitness for representation is Gilpin’s criterion for a certain type of aesthetic appreciation, and, using this criterion, he regards picturesque deformity in a…

    Abstract:

    Observes that George Bernard Shaw’s play “Pygmalion” is read in a mythographic context that has generally focused exclusively on its connections to Ovid’s version of the myth, contained in “Metamorphoses.” Argues, borrowing from the theories of Lévi-Strauss, that alternative versions of the Pygmalion myth should be studied, as mythic tales are not “static,” but constantly refined through retellings. Explains the use of “contextualisation” in the…

    Abstract:

    The “Wellesley Index to Victorian Periodicals” names the radical Scottish journalist William Weir, 1802-1858, as the author of an unsigned series of seven articles, published in Henry Colburn’s “New Monthly Magazine”, entitled “Recollections of a Gottingen Student”, 1829-1830. While the old “Dictionary of National Biography”, which is referenced in “Wellesley”, is silent on the dates of Weir’s time in Gottingen and does not attribute a…

    Abstract:

    Governments around the world adopt transparency reforms to facilitate accountability. In principle, open proceedings provide citizens with valuable information to evaluate elected officials’ decisionmaking, which incentives lawmakers to follow mass preferences when choosing policies. However, the public’s general lack of knowledge and engagement with the political process may weaken the power of open information, and perhaps instead allow citizens and groups with extreme views to exer…

    Abstract:

    Governments around the world face an apparent tension when considering whether to allow public access to the governing process. In principle, transparent institutions promote accountability and good governance. However, politicians and scholars contend that such reforms also constrain politicians’ capacity to negotiate and compromise, producing inefficiency and gridlock. This argument—that transparency inhibits compromise—is widely accepted, but rarely empirically tested. We develop a the…
