Here’s the original Arrows version:
And here’s the Joan Jett and the Blackhearts version:
And here are the lyrics.
References and Citations
In the episode, I drew on information which you can find at the following sites.
Regarding the nature of quotations, I drew from the best work of which I know on that subject: Robert Sokolowski’s article, “Quotation,” in his collection of essays, Pictures, Quotations, and Distinctions: Fourteen Essays in Phenomenology, 27-51 (Notre Dame, IN: University of Notre Dame Press, 1992). That article, however, was originally published as “Quotation,” The Review of Metaphysics 37 (1984): 699-723, which you can read at that link.
Regarding the nature of free will, I drew on my own papers (“The Embarrassment of Punching Puppets” [PDF] and “A Preparation for Existentialism, Regarding Human Freedom” [PDF]), which are inspired by Aristotle’s discussion of voluntary and involuntary action in Nicomachean Ethics III. The idea that free will(or at least moral responsibility) isn’t about choosing between alternative possibilities was most famously argued by Harry Frankfurt (the guy who wrote that famous book).
My discussion of names here comes from my article, “Husserl’s Mereological Semiotics: Indications, Expressions, Surrogates” (PDF), and, as always, is inspired by the work of Robert Sokolowski, especially in his articles “Picturing,” in Pictures, Quotations, and Distinctions, 3-26 (see, e.g., pp. 21-24), and “Referring,” also in Pictures, Quotations, and Distinctions, 187-209 (but specifically pp. 187-88). You can read “Picturing” for free in its original form (as published in The Review of Metaphysics 31 : 3-28) here, while the original form of “Referring” can be tracked down in The Review of Metaphysics 42 (1988): 27-49. You can trace both my own and Sokolowski’s ideas on names and presence back to Edmund Husserl.
Comments, Corrections, and Feedback
If you have any comments or questions about Episode 1, please feel free to leave them as “Replies” on this post. What, for example, did I miss in the song? Is there anything about its music or lyrics that you think is interesting, but I brazenly ignored? Or maybe I got something plain wrong!
You may notice, for instance, that I say in the episode that “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” replaced the Chariots of Fire theme song at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. In fact, things were the other way around.
