  1. The Ethics of Reading: Kant, de Man, Eliot, Trollope, and Benjamin.J. Hillis Miller - 1987 - Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism 46 (2):312-314.
  • A Personal Love of the Good.Camilla Kronqvist - 2019 - Philosophia 47 (4):977-994.
    In order to articulate an account of erotic love that does not attempt to transcend its personal features, Robert Solomon and Martha Nussbaum lean on the speeches by Aristophanes and Alcibiades in Plato’s Symposium. This leads them to downplay the sense in which love is not only for another person, but also for the good. Drawing on a distinction between relative and absolute senses of speaking about the good, I mediate between two features of love that at first may seem (...)

  • Plato’s Ethics.Terence Irwin - 1995 - Oxford University Press.
    This exceptional book examines and explains Plato's answer to the normative question, "How ought we to live?" It discusses Plato's conception of the virtues; his views about the connection between the virtues and happiness; and the account of reason, desire, and motivation that underlies his arguments about the virtues. Plato's answer to the epistemological question, "How can we know how we ought to live?" is also discussed. His views on knowledge, belief, and inquiry, and his theory of Forms, are examined, (...)

  • On the Attitude of Trust.Lars Hertzberg - 1988 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 31 (3):307 – 322.
    In On Certainty, the emphasis is on the solitary individual as subject of knowledge. The importance of our dependence on others, however, is brought out in Wittgenstein's remarks about trust. In this paper, the role and nature of trust are discussed, the grammar of trust being contrasted with that of reliance. It is shown that to speak of trust is to speak of a fundamental attitude of one person towards others, an attitude which, unlike reliance, is not to be explained, (...)

  • Self-Knowledge and Self-Deception.Hugo Strandberg - 2015 - Palgrave Macmillan.
    'Self-knowledge' and 'self-deception' are not so much the themes of this book as its primary tools: these concepts act as mirrors through which it is possible to reflect upon questions about the self. Strandberg explores what it is that becomes visible when we use these concepts as a means of looking at ourselves. The aim is to acquire a better understanding of what we mean when we ask the question 'who am I?'. By approaching the question from the perspective of (...)

  • The Ethics of Deconstruction: Derrida and Levinas.Simon Critchley - 1992 - Basil Blackwell.
    It is now widely accepted that The Ethics of Deconstruction was the first book to argue for the ethical turn in Derrida's work and to show as powerfully as possible how deconstruction has persuasive ethical consequences that were vital to our thinking through of questions of politics and democracy. Now reissued with three new appendices which restate as well as reflect upon and deepen the book's arguments, The Ethics of Deconstruction is undoubtedly the standard work in the field.

  • The Need for Roots: Prelude to a Declaration of Duties Towards Mankind.Simone Weil - 1952 - Routledge.
    "What is required if men and women are to feel at home in society and are to recover their vitality? Into wrestling with that question, Simone Weil put the very substance of her mind and temperament. The apparently solid edifices of our prepossessions fall down before her onslaught like ninepins, and she is as fertile and forthright in her positive suggestions . . . she can be relied upon to toss aside the superficial and to come to grips with the (...)

  • Morality and Cultural Differences.John W. Cook - 1989 - Oxford University Press.
    The scholars who defend or dispute moral relativism, the idea that a moral principle cannot be applied to people whose culture does not accept it, have concerned themselves with either the philosophical or anthropological aspects of relativism. This study, shows that in order to arrive at a definitive appraisal of moral relativism, it is necessary to understand and investigate both its anthropological and philosophical aspects. Carefully examining the arguments for and against moral relativism, Cook exposes not only that anthropologists have (...)
