    Peter Stemmer has developed an elegant and impressive theory of normativity and morality. In this article, I try to show that he does not achieve two goals he set for himself. First, his theory does not capture the categorical bindingness of moral demands, even in Stemmer’s own interpretation of categorical bindingness: it does not show that we must follow moral demands no matter what our personal goals and desires are. Second, just because it would be rational to establish positive moralities (...)

  • Hobbes and the Social Contract Tradition.Jean Hampton - 1986 - Cambridge University Press.
    This major study of Hobbes's political philosophy draws on recent developments in game and decision theory to explore whether the thrust of the argument in Leviathan, that it is in the interests of the people to create a ruler with absolute power, can be shown to be cogent. Professor Hampton has written a book of vital importance to political philosophers, political and social scientists, and intellectual historians.
  • Practical Rationality and Preference: Essays for David Gauthier.Christopher W. Morris & Arthur Ripstein (eds.) - 2001 - Cambridge University Press.
    What are preferences and are they reasons for action? Is it rational to cooperate with others even if that entails acting against one's preferences? The dominant position in philosophy on the topic of practical rationality is that one acts so as to maximize the satisfaction of one's preferences. This view is most closely associated with the work of David Gauthier, and in this collection of essays some of the most innovative philosophers working in this field explore the controversies surrounding Gauthier's (...)

  • Moralbegründung Ohne Metaphysik.Norbert Hoerster - 1983 - Erkenntnis 19 (1-3):225 - 238.
    It is claimed that some important moral rules — more precisely: the social establishment of such rules — can best be argued for in terms of hypothetical imperatives, addressed to each member of the society in question. The main presuppositions of this conception of morality are analysed and the implications of it for the relations between morality on the one hand and such things as prudence, sanctions, and equality on the other are examined.

  • Politische Autorität: Eine Einführung.Fabian Wendt - 2018 - Münster: Mentis.
    Staaten beanspruchen für sich das Recht, Gesetze geben und mit Zwangsgewalt durchsetzen zu dürfen. Doch unter welchen Bedingungen haben sie dieses Recht tatsächlich? -/- Das ist die grundlegendste Frage der Politischen Philosophie. Obwohl wir die Autoritätsansprüche des Staates oft als selbstverständlich hinnehmen, erscheinen sie moralisch durchaus fragwürdig, wenn man Personen als frei und gleich begreift. Wie können wenige Parlamentsmitglieder das Recht haben, für Millionen Menschen verbindliche Gesetze zu erlassen? Wie können Polizeibeamte und Richter das Recht haben, diese Gesetze gegenüber Personen (...)

  • Die Rechtfertigung moralischer Normen.Peter Stemmer - 2004 - Zeitschrift für Philosophische Forschung 58 (4):483 - 504.
    Moralische Normen sind in den Augen derer, die sie zur Geltung bringen und ihre Befolgung von anderen fordern, keine Machtnormen, sondern gerechtfertigte Normen. Sie schränken den Freiheitsspielraum der Menschen ein, aber sie tun dies gerechtfertigterweise, und das heißt: auf moralisch unbedenkliche Weise. Moralische Normen genügen damit selbst einem moralischen Maßstab, sie entsprechen selbst einer – höherstufigen – moralischen Norm. Wo kommt diese höherstufige moralische Norm her, und was ist ihr Inhalt? Der Aufsatz behandelt diese Fragen im Rahmen einer interessenfundierten Moralkonzeption. (...)

  • Moralischer Kontraktualismus.Peter Stemmer - 2002 - Zeitschrift für Philosophische Forschung 56 (1):1 - 21.
    Der moralische Kontraktualismus hat mit zwei elementaren Einwänden zu kämpfen, die die Vertragsidee selbst betreffen und damit die innere Schlüssigkeit der Konzeption in Frage stellen. Der erste Einwand besagt, ein moralgenerierender Vertrag sei nie geschlossen worden, der zweite, die Idee, ein Vertrag kreiere die moralische Normativität, sei zirkulär oder führe in einen infiniten Regress. Der Kontraktualismus kann sich gegen beide Einwände verteidigen, indem er sich vom faktischen zum hypothetischen Kontraktualismus wandelt und die Vorstellung, die Legitimität moralischer Normen resultiere aus einem (...)

  • Thomas Hobbes.Stewart Duncan - 2009 - Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679), whose current reputation rests largely on his political philosophy, was a thinker with wide ranging interests. In philosophy, he defended a range of materialist, nominalist, and empiricist views against Cartesian and Aristotelian alternatives. In physics, his work was influential on Leibniz, and lead him into disputes with Boyle and the experimentalists of the early Royal Society. In history, he translated Thucydides's History of the Peloponnesian War into English, and later wrote his own history of the Long Parliament. (...)

  • David Gauthiers kontraktualistische Moralbegründung.Vuko Andrić - 2010 - Aufklärung Und Kritik 33:80-104.
    This paper offers a critique of David Gauthier’s contractarian moral theory. I point out morally counter-intuitive implications of Gauthier’s theory – for example, with respect to societies with slavery or concerning the protection of animals – as well as theoretically unattractive features, such as the overly optimistic assumption of translucent agents. However, contractarian moral theories can be improved by correcting the theoretically unattractive features. Moreover, though some morally counter-intuitive implications cannot be avoided, whether we should accept these implications ultimately depends (...)

  • Eine Kritik an Norbert Hoersters Theorie der Normenvertretung.Vuko Andrić - 2010 - Zeitschrift für Philosophische Forschung 64 (1):62-83.
    Norbert Hoerster has tried to show on the basis of what I call special and general interests that it is rational to endorse moral judgements. I argue that Hoerster’s attempt to vindicate the rationality of moral judgements fails. By appealing to special interests Hoerster can only establish the rationality of endorsing judgements that – by Hoerster’s own standards – are not moral judgements because they do not pass the test of generalization. While the appeal to general interests, on the other (...)

  • Ein Plädoyer für den Rechtsnormen-Konsequentialismus.Vuko Andrić & Martin Kerz - 2014 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 140:87-98.
    How can legal norms be morally evaluated? In this paper we discuss and defend consequentialism about legal norms. According to this doctrine, the legitimacy of legal norms depends entirely on the consequences of the norms’ validity. Consequentialism about legal norms shares the advantages of both act- and rule-consequentialism while avoiding the respective disadvantages. In particular, consequentialism about legal norms has prima-facie plausibility like act-consequentialism and for similar reasons: it qualifies as a version of collective act-consequentialism. At the same time, the (...)
