  3. Bernward Gesang (2013). What Climate Policy Can a Utilitarian Justify? Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 26 (2):377-392.
    This essay sketches out what a utilitarian should support when considering global warming along with what measures can be recommended to political leaders for utilitarian reasons. If we estimate the utility of the great advantages that any ambitious climate policy might create in the name of poverty reduction in the present, I will show how a decision can be made in favor of a vigorous climate policy based on such estimates. My argument is independent of the truth of the claims (...)

  5. Bernward Gesang (2010). Are Moral Philosophers Moral Experts? Bioethics 24 (4):153-159.
    In this paper I examine the question of whether ethicists are moral experts. I call people moral experts if their moral judgments are correct with high probability and for the right reasons. I defend three theses, while developing a version of the coherence theory of moral justification based on the differences between moral and nonmoral experience: The answer to the question of whether there are moral experts depends on the answer to the question of how to justify moral judgments. Deductivism (...)

    In order to discuss the normative aspects of euthanasia one has to clarify what is meant by active and passive euthanasia. Many philosophers deny the possibility of distinguishing the two by purely descriptive means, e.g. on the basis of theories of action or the differences between acting and omitting to act. Against this, such a purely descriptive distinction will be defended in this paper by discussing and refining the theory developed by Dieter Birnbacher in his “Tun und Unterlassen”. On this (...)

    The paper discusses the concept of utility.Classical utilitarianism holds the mental-stateaccount that individuals try to realize only feelingsof satisfaction (mental states). Those that hold the``informed-desire account'' think that individuals careonly about the realization of the etxramental statesof affairs they wish. According to this position itis not necessary that the satisfaction of a desirewill be experienced. Mental states are not in everycase important. Which account expresses whatindividuals really evaluate as useful? This questionis essential to the utilitarian because that what isreally desired (...)
