This bibliography covers nearly all of my public or published pieces on ''topics other than open access''. It covers my work in philosophy and law (my academic fields), as well as some more personal and playful pieces not suitable for academic publication. It includes books, journal articles, preprints, and self-published pieces. It omits course handouts and minor pieces like blog posts, listserv messages, letters to editors, presentation slides, and small web pages. I plan to keep it up to date, though I'm still trying to catch up by posting unposted pieces from years ago. — [[Peter Suber]].

Written for Georg Trogemann (editor), ''Essays on Self-Modifying Media'', 2002. But the book project fell through and I posted my contribution online without waiting to find another publisher. An examination of the ethics of paternalizing creatures capable of deep and precise self-modification. I expect that intelligent machines will achieve this capability, through reprogramming, sooner than human beings, through drugs and surgery. Hence the pieces focuses on the ethics of paternalizing intelligent machines capable of rewriting their own code.

Latest revision as of 20:40, 21 August 2021

This bibliography covers nearly all of my public or published pieces on topics other than open access. It covers my work in philosophy and law (my academic fields), as well as some more personal and playful pieces not suitable for academic publication. It includes books, journal articles, preprints, and self-published pieces. It omits course handouts and minor pieces like blog posts, listserv messages, letters to editors, presentation slides, and small web pages. I plan to keep it up to date, though I'm still trying to catch up by posting unposted pieces from years ago. — Peter Suber.




Most recent first

  • Saving Machines From Themselves:  The Ethics of Deep Self-Modification. Written for Georg Trogemann (editor), Essays on Self-Modifying Media, 2002. But the book project fell through and I posted my contribution online without waiting to find another publisher. An examination of the ethics of paternalizing creatures capable of deep and precise self-modification. I expect that intelligent machines will achieve this capability, through reprogramming, sooner than human beings, through drugs and surgery. Hence the pieces focuses on the ethics of paternalizing intelligent machines capable of rewriting their own code.
  • Knot Tying Notation, July 2002. A "programming language" to record the steps in a knot tying method.
  • Articles on Amendment (I.31-32), Civil Disobedience (I.110-113), Paternalism (II.632-635), and Self-Reference in Law (II.790-792), in Christopher Berry Gray (ed.), Philosophy of Law: An Encyclopedia, Garland Pub. Co., 1999. (Apologies for the condensed prose in these articles. I had very little space in which to work.)
  • The Case of the Speluncean Explorers:  Nine New Opinions, Routledge, 1998. Reprinted, with corrections, 2002.
    • Preface and Introduction. Full text and open access.
    • Copy of the "Preface" and "Introduction" at Earlham.
    • My contract with Routledge prevents me from making the rest of the text open access. However, I've created an open-access page of assignment ideas for teachers, errata, and other auxiliary content.
    • The Preface and Introduction were translated into Slovak by Sandra Knudsen.
    • The Preface and Introduction were translated into Hindi by Nikol.
    • The book home page was translated into Croatian by Milica Novak.
    • The full text of the book was translated into Complex Chinese and published by The Commercial Press (Hong Kong) in 2013. There is not an OA edition of the Chinese translation.
  • Stages of Argument, 2000. A description of four stages of sophistication in argument, for use by teachers who evaluate arguments and must communicate their evaluations in a way that helps the authors improve.
  • Glossary of First-Order Logic, 1999. Definitions of basic terms in basic set theory, basic recursive function theory, two branches of logic (truth-functional propositional logic and first-order predicate logic) and their metatheory.
  • WireWise, April 1998 - April 1999. An occasional newsletter of tips for academic web users that I wrote with Liffey Thorpe.
