  1. A. K. Fernandes (2001). Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide, and the Philosophical Anthropology of Karol Wojtyla. Christian Bioethics 7 (3):379-402.score: 960.0
    The lack of consensus in American society regarding the permissibility of assisted suicide and euthanasia is due in large part to a failure to address the nature of the human person involved in the ethical act itself. For Karol Wojtyla, philosopher and Pope, ethical action finds meaning only in an authentic understanding of the person; but it is through acting (actus humanus) alone that the human person reveals himself. Knowing what the person ought to be cannot be divorced from what (...)

  2. M. C. B. Fernandes & J. D. M. Vianna (1999). On the Generalized Phase Space Approach to Duffin-Kemmer-Petiau Particles. Foundations of Physics 29 (2):201-219.score: 450.0
    We present a general derivation of the Duffin-Kemmer-Petiau (D.K.P) equation on the relativistic phase space proposed by Bohm and Hiley. We consider geometric algebras and the idea of algebraic spinors due to Riesz and Cartan. The generators βμ (p) of the D.K.P algebras are constructed in the standard fashion used to construct Clifford algebras out of bilinear forms. Free D.K.P particles and D.K.P particles in a prescribed external electromagnetic field are analized and general Liouville type equations for these cases are (...)

  3. Ashley K. Fernandes (2010). Suffering in the Context of Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide: Transcending Job Through Wojtyla's Anthropology. Christian Bioethics 16 (3):257-273.score: 450.0
    The debate over euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide (EPAS) continues to ignore the philosophical anthropology on which certain critical claims rest. In this paper, I offer several anthropologically based arguments against one prominent justification for EPAS: the Argument from the Evil of Suffering. I demonstrate that the argument is, at its core, a utilitarian one, and that a sound rebuttal can be found by examining Karol Wojtyla/Pope John Paul II's view of suffering as a transformative experience for the human person. Wojtyla (...)
