  1. Biography and Betrayal.Christopher Cowley - 2022 - Zeitschrift Für Ethik Und Moralphilosophie 5 (1):3-14.
    John Bayley was married to Iris Murdoch for 45 years. In the last few years of her life, Murdoch developed Alzheimer’s, and John Bayley wrote a memoir about their life together, including the difficulties of looking after her with the disease. Although the Memoir was generally well-received, some critics called the publication an act of betrayal, because of the intimacy of some of the revelations, because of the public reduction of a great mind to a sick old woman, and especially (...)

    Nary an Obligatory Maxim From Kant’s Universalizability Tests.Samuel J. M. Kahn - 2022 - Zeitschrift Für Ethik Und Moralphilosophie 5 (1):15-35.
    In this paper I argue that there would be no obligatory maxims if the only standards for assessing maxims were Kant’s universalizability tests. The paper is divided into five sections. In the first, I clarify my thesis: I define my terms and disambiguate my thesis from other related theses for which one might argue. In the second, I confront the view that says that if a maxim passes the universalizability tests, then there is a positive duty to adopt that maxim; (...)

  5. Aesthetic and Ethical Attitudes.Sabina Lovibond - 2022 - Zeitschrift Für Ethik Und Moralphilosophie 5 (1):61-74.
    The essay suggests that there is such a thing as a characteristically ‘aesthetic attitude’, and that this idea can indeed shed light on the production and reception of works of art, as well as on the appreciation of nature. It argues, further, that the response to individual ‘particularity’ implicit in the aesthetic attitude renders this attitude continuous with that of ethical attention to – and appreciation of – individual persons: we are concerned here with distinct, but related, aspects of the (...)

  6. Good and Evil in Recent Discussion: The Priority of Good and the Rationality of Evil.Jörg Noller - 2022 - Zeitschrift Für Ethik Und Moralphilosophie 5 (1):89-92.
    This paper develops a critical account of evil. By referring to Kant’s moral philosophy, I argue that evil actions have reasons and cannot be explained in terms of a lack of reason. However, these reasons of evil are not obvious but rather forms of rational self-deception. I therefore argue that the phenomenon of evil is complex and involves three dimensions: activity, reasons, and deception.

  7. Die innere Dynamik von selbst- und umweltbezogenen Tugenden im tugendhaften Akteur: Systematische Überlegungen im Ausgang von Erich Fromm.Richard Friedrich Runge - 2022 - Zeitschrift Für Ethik Und Moralphilosophie 5 (1):37-59.
    Die eudaimonistische Tugendethik sieht sich, was ihre innere Struktur anbelangt, standardmäßig mit den Vorwürfen des Egoismus und Anthropozentrismus konfrontiert, was auch das Projekt einer ökologischen Tugendethik zu gefährden scheint. Der vorliegende Artikel versucht, ausgehend von der Tugendethik Erich Fromms, eine neue Perspektive auf diese Standardvorwürfe zu entwickeln, indem er den theoretischen Implikationen nachgeht, die die Anerkennung der Biophilie – der Liebe zum Leben – als eine der Tugenden des Menschen für den Frommschen Ansatz hat. Die zunächst noch exegetisch ausgerichtete Diskussion (...)

  8. Good and Evil in Recent Discussion: Defending the Concept of Evil.Luke Russell - 2022 - Zeitschrift Für Ethik Und Moralphilosophie 5 (1):77-82.
    This paper addresses the question of whether the concept of evil is philosophically adequate. It sets out a secular conception of evil that is sufficiently clear to be used in philosophical theorising. Evil, so conceived, is not merely a fiction or an illusion, but is a moral property possessed by some actions and some persons in the real world. While several philosophers have claimed that it is inescapably dangerous to use the concept of evil, the reality is that the concept (...)

  9. Good and Evil in Recent Discussions - Good and Evil in Virtue Ethics.Katja Maria Vogt & Jens Haas - 2022 - Zeitschrift Für Ethik Und Moralphilosophie 5 (1):83-88.
    Talk about evil resonates in ways that are culturally inherited. Historical and religious dimensions of “evil” often seem to be front and center. Nevertheless, we argue that it would be too quick to dismiss the study of evil within secular ethics. We defend an outlook that is inspired by ancient ethics—also called virtue ethics—which accepts the so-called Guise of the Good account of motivation. For an agent to be motivated to perform an action, something about the action must look good (...)

    Die innere Dynamik von selbst- und umweltbezogenen Tugenden im tugendhaften Akteur. Systematische Überlegungen im Ausgang von Erich Fromm.Richard Friedrich Runge - 2022 - Zeitschrift Für Ethik Und Moralphilosophie 1 (5):37–59.
    The inner structure of eudaimonistic virtue ethics has standardly been charged with egoism and anthropocentrism, which also seems to endanger the project of an environmental virtue ethics. Proceeding from the virtue ethics of Erich Fromm, the present article tries to develop a new perspective on these standard accusations by discussing the theoretical implications of the recognition of biophilia – the love of life – as a human virtue in the Frommian approach. The initially exegetically oriented discussion of the internal relation (...)
