    Jonathan Weinberg (2007) criticizes so called armchair philosophers’ appeals to intuitions. Faulty intuitions, so the argument, cannot be detected and corrected since (among other reasons) intuitions cannot be corroborated by external evidence. I press a dilemma against Weinberg. On a broad reading of ‘corroboration’, Weinberg has not established that intuitions lack external corroboration. On a narrow reading, his critique is self-undermining and issues into general skepticism

    This paper offers an analysis of the interactions of Muslim women in the US healthcare system in order to unpack challenges and propose potential accommodations. Islam may inform values or considerations in the context of other cultural factors or present Muslim women with specific challenges in seeking healthcare based on Islamic teachings or social constructs.

It then delves into challenges faced by Muslim women in the US healthcare system and the implications of those challenges and finally proposes improvements to help Muslim women to gain access to fair and equal healthcare in the US

    Oscillatory and Fourier Integral operators with degenerate canonical relations

    We mostly survey results concerning the L2L^2 boundedness of oscillatory and Fourier integral operators. This article does not intend to give a broad overview; it mainly focusses on a few topics directly related to the work of the authors.Comment: 37 pages, to appear in Publicacions Mathematiques (special issue, Proceedings of the 2000 El Escorial Conference in Harmonic Analysis and Partial Differential Equations
