  1. Matjaž Potrč & Vojko Strahovnik (2013). Moral Dilemmas and Vagueness. Acta Analytica 28 (2):207-222.
    In this paper we point out some interesting structural similarities between vagueness and moral dilemmas as well as between some of the proposed solutions to both problems. Moral dilemma involves a situation with opposed obligations that cannot all be satisfied. Transvaluationism as an approach to vagueness makes three claims concerning the nature of vagueness: (1) it involves incompatibility between mutually unsatisfiable requirements, (2) the underlying requirements retain their normative power even when they happen to be overruled, and (3) this incompatibility (...)

    The paper discusses the meaning, role and importance of moral identity and character for ethics and for leading a good life . The modern society is a society of permanent change and the feeling of uncertainty. The world seems fragmented and discontinuous. It is very difficult to form a permanent identity in such a world. In the past the choice of the life project was the choice of all choices. In liquid modernity, identity is flexible and in a state of (...)

    In dem Artikel werden der Hintersinn, die Rolle sowie die Wichtigkeit der moralischen Identität für die Ethik und eine vortreffliche Lebensführung besprochen . Die moderne Gesellschaft ist eine Gesellschaft des ununterbrochenen Wandels und Ungewissheitsgefühls. Die Welt erscheint bruchstückhaft und diskontinuierlich. Es ist äußert prekär, in einer solchen Welt eine Daueridentität zu entfalten. In der Vergangenheit stand die Wahl des Lebensprojekts für eine Wahl aller Wahlen. In der flüssigen Modernität fungiert die Identität flexibel, in einem Zustand der Dauerumwandlung, in welchem das (...)

    U članku se raspravlja o značenju, ulozi i važnosti moralnog identiteta i karaktera za etiku i vođenje dobrog života . Moderno društvo je društvo stalne promjene i osjećaja nesigurnosti. Svijet se doima fragmentiranim i diskontinuiranim. Vrlo je teško formirati trajni identitet u takvome svijetu. U prošlosti je izbor životnog projekta bio izbor nad izborima. U tekućoj modernosti, identitet je fleksibilan i u stanju stalne transformacije, u kojem pojedinac neprestano redefinira sebe postajući tako netko drugi nego što je bio do tada. (...)

  6. Vojko Strahovnik (2010). Globalizacija, globalizirana etika i moralna teorija. Synthesis Philosophica 24 (2):209-218.
    Jedan od izazova, koji proizlaze iz globalizacije kao multidimenzijskog fenomena, je mogućnost moralne integracije svijeta ili barem pronalaska vjerodostojnog zajedničkog temelja za smisleni etički dijalog. Prevladavanje moralnih fragmentacija modernog svijeta je još teže u svjetlu raznolikosti pogleda u moralnoj teoriji. Je li globalna etika uopće moguća imajući u vidu mnoga neslaganja o metaetičkim i normativnim pitanjima? Moralna teorija stoji pred izazovom pružanja upotrebljivog okvira za moralnu raspravu kao preduvjeta za moralnu integraciju. U svojoj posljednjoj knjizi, Robert Audi predlaže model pluralističkog (...)

    Eine der Herausforderungen, die aus der Globalisierung als einem multidimensionalen Phänomen hervorgehen, ist die Möglichkeit einer moralischen Weltintegration, oder geringstenfalls die Möglichkeit zur Entdeckung einer glaubwürdigen gemeinsamen Grundlage für den sinnreichen ethischen Dialog. Die Überwindung moralischer Fragmentationen der Gegenwartswelt wird noch schwieriger im Lichte der Ansichtsvielfalt in der moralischen Theorie. Ist eine globale Ethik überhaupt noch möglich, behält man die vielerlei Unstimmigkeiten über metaethische sowie normative Fragen im Auge? Die Moraltheorie steht vor der Herausforderung zur Lieferung eines nutzbaren Rahmens für (...)

    L’un des défis liés la globalisation, vue comme un phénomène multidimensionnel, est la possibilité d’une intégration morale du monde, ou du moins de l’invention d’un fondement commun plausible pour un dialogue éthique crédible. Surmonter la fragmentation morale du monde moderne est d’autant plus difficile si l’on tient compte de la diversité des points de vue dans la théorie morale. Une éthique globale est-elle possible compte tenu de nombreuses divergences en matière de questions métaéthiques et normatives ? La théorie morale fait (...)

    One of the challenges arising from globalization viewed as a multi-dimensional phenomenon is the possibility of a moral integration of the world or at least that of finding some plausible common ground for a meaningful ethical dialogue. Overcoming the moral frag- mentation of the modern world is made even more difficult in light of the diversity of views in moral theory. Is global ethics even possible in the light of many disagreements about metaethical and normative questions? Moral theory faces a (...)

    Particularism is a justly popular ‘cutting-edge’ topic in contemporary ethics across the world. Many moral philosophers do not, in fact, support particularism (instead defending "generalist" theories that rest on particular abstract moral principles), but nearly all would take it to be a position that continues to offer serious lessons and challenges that cannot be safely ignored. Given the high standard of the contributions, and that this is a subject where lively debate continues to flourish, Challenging Moral Particularism will become required (...)

    In their book Principled Ethics: Generalism as a Regulative Ideal McKeever and Ridge address arguments in the debate between moral particularism and moral generalism. The first part of the book presents a systematic discussion of moral particularism, especially a critical evaluation of arguments in its favour. In the second part authors defend a version of generalism which they label generalism as a regulative ideal. The heart of the debate between particularism and generalism is the question of acceptability of a principled (...)

    The general drive in epistemology is to deliver necessary and sufficient conditions for knowledge with the use of exceptionless general epistemic principles. There is another way, however, to approach the phenomenon of knowledge – by particularistic beautiful patterns. David Lewis in his paper „Elusive Knowledge” provides a nice contextual epistemology. We also think that contextualism is the right way to go and that the epistemic context plays an important role in our endeavors to gain knowledge. But, we disagree with Lewis (...)

    Contextualism has been a prominent epistemological theory for more than twenty years. Its central claim is that standards for justification and of knowledge ascriptions can vary from one context to another context. However this in not the end of the story, for one must subsequently explain these variations of standards in order to avoid arbitrariness. Two strategies offer themselves at this point: generalism and particularism. We argue that the latter could provide a viable support for an overall contextualist approach. David (...)

    Some commitments at the interface of semantics and ontology, such as numbers or symphonies, tend to appear problematic. The scorekeeping approach to semantics introduces contextually shifting parameters that allow for construal of truth as indirect correspondence. Meinong did recognize diversity and richness that is made possible by the non-reductionist engagement of the scorekeeping approach. Because of his commitment to the deep presupposition of direct correspondence construal of truth though, Meinong had to interpret richness of normative discursive scorekeeping commitments as richness (...)

    In his recent book The Good in the Right Robert Audi presents one of the most complete contemporary arguments for moral intuitionism. By clearing-out of unnecessary and out-of-date posits and commitments of traditional intuitionist accounts he manages to establish a moderate (and in a sense also minimal) version of intuitionism that can be further developed metaethically (e.g. Kantian intuitionism, value-based intuitionism) as well as normatively (e.g. by varying the list of prima facie duties). Central posits of his study of moral (...)

    The problem of aesthetic principles and that of the nature of aesthetic reasons get confronted. If aesthetic reasons play an important role in our aesthetic evaluations and judgments, then both some general aesthetic principles and rules could support them (aesthetic generalism) or again their nature may be particularistic (aesthetic particularism). A recent argument in support of aesthetic generalism as proposed by Oliver Conolly and Bashshar Haydar is presented and criticized for its misapprehension of particularism. Their position of irreversible aesthetic generalism (...)
