    Holism and Reductionism: A View From Genetics.Arthur Zucker - 1981 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 6 (2):145-164.
    are often used loosely – especially in medical contexts. In an attempt to remedy this, these terms are explored from the standpoints of: philosophy of science, medicine, genetics, history of genetics and clinical genetics. A sense for ‘reductionism’ is developed in part by focusing on the related histories of classical genetics and clinical genetics. This done, the dichotomy between holism and reductionism, whether in basic genetics or the genetic counseling situation, loses much of its force. CiteULike Connotea Del.icio.us What's this?

    Bribery and Extortion: Can Restaurants Help?Arthur Zucker - 2000 - Science and Engineering Ethics 6 (2):197-204.
    Examples of tipping suggest that the distinction between tipping, bribery and extortion can be questioned. Some well known ideas about bribery will not work if extended to tipping and, indeed, these analyses may founder whether or not tipping, bribery and extortion merge. I suggest that more case study analysis as well as a discussion of the relationship between character and actions are needed.

    Ferré: Organicistic Connectedness—But Still Speciesistic.Arthur Zucker - 1996 - Ethics and the Environment 1 (2):185 - 190.
    An environmental ethics open to the charge of speciesism would be a weak environmental ethics at best. Ferré criticizes the environmental ethics of Callicott and Rolston, presenting his version of an environmental ethics; one he refers to as organicistic. His version does indeed avoid the pitfalls of the environmental ethics of Callicott and Rolston. But, as I show, the charge of speciesism can be leveled against Ferré (and many others). I suggest that properly understood speciesism is so deeply rooted in (...)

    Moral Monads and Ethical Reductionism.Arthur Zucker - 1984 - Journal of Religious Ethics 12 (1):116 - 122.
    Daniel C. Maguire (1978, 1982) has presented a moral theory based on affective experiences. He sees this sort of theory as protection against ethical relativism as well as leading toward a morality necessarily based on religion. Along the way, ethical reductionism is discarded. This paper argues that precisely the opposite has happened. Maguire is open to the charge of ethical relativism and so loses religion as a base. A sense can be given to ethical reductionism and to what Maguire terms (...)
