    Response to Open Peer Commentaries on “Catholic Social Teaching and the Duty to Vaccinate”.Paul J. Carson & Anthony T. Flood - 2017 - American Journal of Bioethics 17 (4):1-3.
    Since the last century, vaccination has been one of the most important tools we possess for the prevention and elimination of disease. Yet the tremendous gains from vaccination are now threatened by a growing hesitance to vaccinate based on a variety of concerns or objections. Geographic clustering of some families who choose not to vaccinate has led to a number of well-publicized outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases. Of note is that some of these outbreaks are centered within some Christian religious groups (...)

    Epistemic Badness.Anthony T. Flood - 2008 - Journal of Philosophical Research 33:253-262.
    In this paper, I challenge Casey Swank’s claim that what makes epistemic vices bad are deeper personal vices and not anything specifically epistemic. I argue that epistemic vices are bad on account of a lack of a good epistemic motive. Consequently, the source of the badness is specifically epistemic. I develop my argument through a consideration of Aquinas’s accounts of wonder and presumption, namely that what makes the latter bad is the lack of something thatthe former possesses. I then analyze (...)

    Aquinas on Self-Love and Love of God.Anthony T. Flood - 2016 - International Philosophical Quarterly 56 (1):45-55.
    This paper addresses the connections between love of self and love of God in terms of their impact on personal subjectivity according to the thought of Thomas Aquinas. I argue that Aquinas’s understanding of self-love illuminates the experience of oneself as a person. Part of this argument relies on Aquinas’s notion that love of self is more basic than love of others. Aquinas further affirms that one ought to love God more than oneself. I explore the implications of this claim (...)

    Gert, Bernard. Morality: Its Nature and Justification.Anthony Flood - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (2):446-447.
  6. Fieldwork in Familiar Places: Morality, Culture, and Philosophy. [REVIEW]Anthony Flood - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (1):182-183.
    Moody-Adams has written an in-depth and comprehensive book that scrutinizes relativists’ claims of the reality of “rationally irresolvable moral disagreement”. Tight arguments are offered challenging the misconceptions about morality, culture, and other anthropological issues that are employed to demonstrate the validity of moral relativism. Furthermore, there is an original reconception of the tasks of moral philosophy with an emphasis on the nature of moral inquiry.

  7. Morality: Its Nature and Justification. [REVIEW]Anthony Flood - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (2):446-446.
    Gert offers a comprehensive and sophisticated account of the nature of morality and a strong justification of it. The starting point of the account is an analysis and clarification of what precisely a theory of morality includes and what it ought not to include. After these considerations, key concepts, which are presupposed and in part defined by moral theory, such as rationality, impartiality, goods, and evils, are decisively described and defined. Next, justifications for the moral theory espoused by Gert are (...)
