  2. Clea F. Rees (2014). Better Lie! Analysis 74 (1):69-74.
    I argue that lying is generally morally better than mere deliberate misleading because the latter involves the exploitation of a greater trust and more seriously abuses our willingness to fulfil epistemic and moral obligations to others. Whereas the liar relies on our figuring out and accepting only what is asserted, the mere deliberate misleader depends on our actively inferring meaning beyond what is said in the form of conversational implicatures as well. When others’ epistemic and moral obligations are determined by (...)

  3. Clea F. Rees & Jonathan Webber (2014). Automaticity in Virtuous Action. In Nancy E. Snow & Franco V. Trivigno (eds.), The Philosophy and Psychology of Character and Happiness. Routledge. 75-90.
    Automaticity is rapid and effortless cognition that operates without conscious awareness or deliberative control.

  5. Clea F. Rees (2013). Are Intelligible Agents Square? Philosophical Explorations (1):1-18.
    In How We Get Along, J. David Velleman argues for two related theses: first, that “making sense” of oneself to oneself and others is a constitutive aim of action; second, that this fact about action grounds normativity. Examining each thesis in turn, I argue against the first that an agent may deliberately act in ways which make sense in terms of neither her self-conception nor others’ conceptions of her. Against the second thesis, I argue that some vices are such that (...)

  6. Clea F. Rees (2006). Reclaiming the Conscience of Huckleberry Finn. In Daniel Kolak & Raymond Martin (eds.), The Experience of Philosophy. Oxford University Press.
    Huck Finn’s emotional responses constitute perfectly good moral reasons not to betray his friend, even though Huck is unable to recognise them as such.
