  1. Philosophy as a Humanistic Discipline.BernardHG Williams - 2009 - Princeton University Press.
    What can--and what can't--philosophy do? What are its ethical risks--and its possible rewards? How does it differ from science? In Philosophy as a Humanistic Discipline, Bernard Williams addresses these questions and presents a striking vision of philosophy as fundamentally different from science in its aims and methods even though there is still in philosophy "something that counts as getting it right." Written with his distinctive combination of rigor, imagination, depth, and humanism, the book amply demonstrates why Williams was one of (...)

  • Social Choice: A Framework for Collective Decisions and Individual Judgements.John Craven (ed.) - 1992 - Cambridge University Press.

Applications in economics, electoral politics, and ethics are discussed. The book will be used by senior undergraduate (...)

  • The Myths We Live By.Mary Midgley - 2003 - Routledge.
    With a new Introduction by the author 'An elegant and sane little book. – _The New Statesman_ Myths, as Mary Midgley argues in this powerful book, are everywhere. In political thought they sit at the heart of theories of human nature and the social contract; in economics in the pursuit of self interest; and in science the idea of human beings as machines, which originates in the seventeenth century, is a today a potent force. Far from being the opposite of (...)

  • Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals.John Gray - 2002 - Farrar, Straus, and Giroux.
    The British bestseller Straw Dogs is an exciting, radical work of philosophy, which sets out to challenge our most cherished assumptions about what it means to be human. From Plato to Christianity, from the Enlightenment to Nietzsche and Marx, the Western tradition has been based on arrogant and erroneous beliefs about human beings and their place in the world. Philosophies such as liberalism and Marxism think of humankind as a species whose destiny is to transcend natural limits and conquer the (...)

  • Xenografting, Species Loyalty, and Human Solidarity.Jennifer Welchman - 2003 - Journal of Social Philosophy 34 (2):244–255.
    This article considers the claims (i) that saving human life through organ transplants from other species would be speciesist, (ii) that none the less it can be defended on grounds of loyalty to our species. I reject loyalty to one's species as a plausible extension of the virtue of loyalty, suggesting that solidarity with one's species is possible and may provide adequate grounds of defense of xenografting.
