Profile: Caspar Hare (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
  1. Caspar Hare (2013). The Limits of Kindness. Oup Oxford.

He breaks with tradition to argue that we can tackle difficult problems in normative ethics by starting with a principle that is humble and uncontroversial. Being moral involves wanting particular other people to be better off.

  9. Caspar Hare (2009). The Ethics of Morphing. Philosophical Studies 145 (1):111 - 130.

    This is about the rights and wrongs of bringing people into existence. In a nutshell: sometimes what matters is not what would have happened to you, but what would have happened to the person who would have been in your position, even if that person never actually exists.
