    Matteo Galletti (2006). Begetting, Cloning and Being Human: Two National Commission Reports Against Human Cloning From Italy and the U.S.A. HEC Forum 18 (2):156-171.
    The aim of this paper is to compare two reports on human cloning, one by the US President’s Council on Bioethics and one by the Italian Comitato Nazionale per la Bioetica. I shall focus on those arguments against human cloning, in both reports, which are articulated in terms of (a) the development of human identity, (b) the meaning of human reproduction, and (c) the nature of family relationships. My general conclusion will be that the arguments against human cloning put forth (...)

  3. Matteo Galletti (2007). Carattere e situazioni: le recenti critiche dell’etica della virtù basate sulla psicologia sociale. Annali Del Dipartimento di Filosofia 13:287-306.
    Recent trends in empirical social psychology showed that situational factors affect human behaviour more than character traits do. Relying on these data, some philosophers argued that moral philosophy should abandon the Aristotelian concept of character or ground virtue ethics on narrow socially sustained character traits. This paper argues that these criticisms are unsound because they misconstrue Aristotelian virtue ethics and the role of character traits in moral reasoning.

    Matteo Galletti & S. Vida (eds.) (2011). Indagine Sulla Natura Umana: Itinerari Della Filosofia Contemporanea. Carocci.
    The idea of an unchanging human nature has always had a special place in Western philosophical thought. Far from being uncontested, this idea has received criticism from different traditions of thought, which have seen it even as an obstacle to the understanding of ourselves. Now it appears in the shape of a renewed naturalism and the opposing forces are the same as in the past. This volume shows some lines of the current debate about human nature: the revival of Herodotus (...)

    Matteo Galletti (ed.) (2015). La mente morale. Persone, ragioni, virtù. Edizioni di Storia E Letteratura.
    In this book, the authors provide a detailed discussion of some problematic of some critical issues of the philosophical research field known as “moral psychology”. The common thread that ideally combines the eight essays concerns the definition and demarcation of the “moral mind”, as a set of cognitive and affective capabilities, attitudes, psychological mechanisms that have practical relevance when we wonder how to act or we evaluate the of action of others. The subtitle (persons, reasons, virtues) means to focus on (...)
