Journal Article
Zangwill, N. (2017). Self-belief and agency. Journal of Mind and Behavior, 38(1), 35-52

I argue for the view that we all believe that we exist from the fact that the belief is a presupposition of some of our mental life. We cannot argue from perceptual experience, but we can argue from action. I defend an essentially active (or perhaps... Read More about Self-belief and agency.

New species of leafmining moths and bagworms in East Yorkshire : recent colonists or overlooked residents? (2017)
Journal Article
Nunn, A. (2017). New species of leafmining moths and bagworms in East Yorkshire : recent colonists or overlooked residents?. The Entomologist's record and journal of variation, 129(3), 156-159

The historical scarcity of many leafmining moths in East Yorkshire (vice-county [VC] 61) (see Sutton & Beaumont, 1989) is at least partly due to a lack of recorder effort, and a number of apparently local or rare species are actually relatively wides...
