  1. E. Telfer (2009). Person, Polis, Planet: Essays in Applied Philosophy * by David Schmidtz. Analysis 69 (3):580-582.
    In ‘Choosing Ends’, Schmidtz defines a new kind of end to join the familiar categories of final, instrumental and constitutive ends: namely, maieutic ends. A maieutic end is an end which ‘gives birth to’ another end. For example, Kate wants to have a goal in life, in particular a career; so having a career is a maieutic end which ‘gives birth to’ her career in medicine. ….

  4. Elizabeth Telfer (2004). ‘Animals Do It Too!’: The Franklin Defence of Meat-Eating. Journal of Moral Philosophy 1 (1):51-67.
    The Franklin defence of meat-eating is the claim that meat-eating is morally permissible because animals eat other animals. I examine five versions of this defence. I argue that two versions, claiming respectively that might is right and that animals deserve to be eaten, can easily be dismissed, and that the version based on a claim that God intends us to eat animals is theologically controversial. I go on to show that the two other versions—one claiming that meat-eating is natural, the (...)

  8. Elizabeth Telfer (1996). Food for Thought: Philosophy and Food. Routledge.
    The importance of food in our individual lives raises moral questions from the debate over eating animals to the prominence of gourmet cookery in the popular media. Through philosophy, Elizabeth Telfer discusses issues including our obligations to those who are starving; the value of the pleasure of food; food as art; our duties to animals; and the moral virtues of hospitableness and temperance. Elizabeth Telfer shows how much traditional philosophy, from Plato to John Stuart Mill, has to say to illuminate (...)

    Rapid changes in medical technology during the past twenty years have confronted traditional value systems with hitherto inconceivable dilemmas. questions of the sanctity and nature of human life have been foregrounded by debate on issues like abortion, euthanasia, and genetic engineering. opponents of these practices frequently employ variants of the slippery slope argument, and it is these arguments that are examined in detail in this book. it is concluded that, despite its apparent tendentiousness, the moral philosopher cannot ignore the slippery (...)

    The kind of temperance discussed is the virtue of moderation concerning the pleasures of eating and drinking. A person lacks this moderation if either his desire for such pleasures causes conflicts with his own standards of appropriate behaviour or the standards themselves attach too much importance to the pleasures concerned. Opinions vary about the proper status of these pleasures, but people surely value them too highly if they place them above their health or the moral duty not to cause unnecessary (...)

    Although the theme of these papers is ‘Contemporary Moral Problems’ my paper is partly about Aristotelian ideas. I had originally intended to apologize for this, but I find there is no need: many other contributors have found Aristotle to be timelessly relevant, as I myself have.

    It is often said that human beings have the ability to plan and choose what to do, can think for themselves and have the freedom and the right to form their own opinions on moral questions. Such claims are sometimes expressed by saying that the human agent is autonomous. In this paper we shall try to disentangle various theses about the autonomy of the agent which the common claims do not always distinguish.
