Using Criticalities as a Heuristic for Answer Set Programming
SABUNCU, ORKUNT; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; AKMAN, VAROL (2004-01-08)
Answer Set Programming is a new paradigm based on logic programming. The main component of answer set programming is a system that finds the answer sets of logic programs. During the computation of an answer set, systems are faced with choice points where they have to select a literal and assign it a truth value. Generally, systems utilize some heuristics to choose new literals at the choice points. The heuristic used is one of the key factors for the performance of the system. A new heuristic for answer s...
The Maxims of relevance theory for determining the referent of a proper name
Özercan, Aliyar; Grünberg, Teo; Department of Philosophy (2016)
People use proper names to refer to certain objects and people. One of the problems with this use is that people use the same name to refer to many other people. There many different theories developed by philosophers to explain how we refer to a person using a proper name. We shall see that though many of the theories can explain to a degree how we use the same name for different people but fail to elucidate how we determine the true referent among the many people that they know who bear the same name. Thi...
The concepts of health and sickness in Nietzsche's philosophy
Akbalık, Bilge; Parkan, Barış; Department of Philosophy (2009)
The purpose of the present study is to assess the role of the concepts of health and sickness in Nietzsche’s philosophy. While doing this, our basic presupposition will be that these concepts owe their special place to their being the new criteria for Nietzsche’s project of revaluation of all existing values. Nietzsche was philosophizing in the face of the crisis of 19th century Europe, that is, nihilism. According to him, Western traditional thought is based on an otherworldly oriented conception of life t...
The problem of justice in the philosophies of Rousseau and Kant
Ünlü, Özlem; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2011)
The aim of this study is to make a comparison between Rousseau’s and Kant’s theory of justice. This thesis defends the arguments of Rousseau’s democratic political theory against the claims raised by Kant. Rousseau and Kant formulate how to relieve the tension between individual and society. This tension is the one between individual and political freedom. Rousseau calls it the tension between moral and political freedom and Kant terms it as internal and external freedom. However, Rousseau ensures continuit...
The role of symbolic presentation in Kant's theory of taste
Rueger, A; Evren, S (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2005-07-01)
Beauty, or at least natural beauty, is famously a symbol of the morally good in Kant's theory of taste. Natural beauty is also, we argue, a symbol of the systematicity of nature. This symbolic connection of beauty and systematicity in nature sheds light on the relation between the principles underlying the use of reflecting judgement. The connection also motivates a more general interpretive proposal: the fact that the imagination can symbolize ideas plays a crucial role in the theory of taste; it is the me...
