The Semantic View and the Alpha-Model

I’ve posted a paper I wrote last semester, titled “The Semantic View and the Alpha-Model,” on the Philosophy Writing page. I argue that a mathematical model developed by Duncan Watts presents a challenge to the “state space” formulation of the semantic view of theories. I imagine the audience for this one is pretty limited, but anyone who likes equations and Greek letters might enjoy it.

As an aside: I’ve made an addition to the copyright notice on that page. Verbatim copying of any papers I post is permitted in any medium, so long as all copies preserve this notice (i.e., they do not try to restrict others from making copies as well).
