  1. James Morauta (2010). In Defence of State-Based Reasons to Intend. Pacific Philosophical Quarterly 91 (2):208-228.
    A state-based reason for one to intend to perform an action F is a reason for one to intend to F which is not a reason for one to F. Are there any state-based reasons to intend? According to the Explanatory Argument, the answer is no, because state-based reasons do not satisfy a certain explanatory constraint. I argue that whether or not the constraint is correct, the Explanatory Argument is unsound, because state-based reasons do satisfy the constraint. The considerations that (...)

In this paper I argue that we should recognize a third kind of positivist separation thesis, one which complements, but is distinct from, positivism's analytic and moral claims. The Neutrality Thesis (...)

  4. James Morauta (2002). Rights and Participatory Goods. Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 22 (1):91-113.
    What sorts of things can’t individuals have rights to? In this paper I consider one recent suggestion: that individuals can’t have rights to participatory goods. I argue that the suggestion is mistaken. There are two kinds of counter-examples, what I call "actualization rights" and "conditional rights". Although the scope for individual actualization rights to participatory goods may be relatively narrow, individual conditional rights to participatory goods are both common and important: they are one of the main vehicles that the realm (...)
