  1. Nancy J. Matchett (2010). Sexual Dimorphism and the Value of Feminist Bioethics. American Journal of Bioethics 10 (7):18-20.score: 290.0

  3. Nancy Matchett (2011). Ethics, Logical Consistency and Practical Deliberation. Theoretical and Applied Ethics 1 (3).score: 120.0
    Moral conflicts are real, and while a deontic logic containing a modified "agglomeration rule" may be able to accommodate this fact, even the most sophisticated logic will still overlook much of what everyday normative reasoning involves.

  5. Nancy Matchett (2009). Cooperative Learning, Critical Thinking and Character. Techniques to Cultivate Ethical Deliberation. Public Integrity 12 (1).score: 120.0
    Effective ethics teaching and training must cultivate both the critical thinking skills and the character traits needed to deliberate effectively about ethical issues in personal and professional life.

It explores what theorists in the natural law tradition and modern legal theorists have argued about what makes propositions of morality and law true, focusing on the rubric of "reason" as opposed to "will." It seems probable, and perhaps inevitable, that theorists about the nature of truth in morality must (...)
