  • Individual differences in theory-of-mind judgments: Order effects and side effects (2012)

    By Adam Feltz and Edward Cokely Abstract: We explore and provide an account for a recently identified judgment anomaly, i.e., an order effect that changes the strength of intentionality ascriptions for some side effects (e.g., when a chairman's pursuit of profits has the foreseen but unintended consequence...

  • AGAINST METAETHICAL IMPERIALISM: Several Arguments for Equal Partnerships between the Deontic and Aretaic (2010)

  • Virtue Ethics and the Search for an Account of Right Action (2010)

  • Virtue Ethics without Right Action (2010)

  • Biography and Historiography: Mutual Evidentiary and Interdisciplinary Considerations (2009)
