    Artistic Integrity.Claudia Mills - 2018 - Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism 76 (1):9-20.
    This article explores the philosophically neglected topic of artistic integrity, situated within the literature on personal or moral integrity more generally. It argues that artists lack artistic integrity if, in the process of creation, they place some other—competing, distracting, or corrupting—value over the value of the artwork itself, in a way that violates their own artistic standards. It also argues, however, that artistic integrity does not require adamant refusal to acknowledge or act upon commitments to values other than single-minded devotion (...)

  4. Duties to Aging Parents.Claudia Mills - unknown
    "What do grown children owe their parents?" Over two decades ago philosopher Jane English asked this question and came up with the startling answer: nothing (English 1979). English joins many contemporary philosophers in rejecting the once-traditional view that grown children owe their parents some kind of fitting repayment for past services rendered. The problem with the traditional view, as argued by many, is, first, that parents have duties to provide fairly significant services to their growing children, and persons do not (...)

    Choice and Circumstance.Claudia Mills - 1998 - Ethics 109 (1):154-165.
    An applicant to our graduate program in philosophy, accepted as well by one (but only one) other graduate program, wrestles with his decision. Finally he decides to attend the other program, but he thanks me for our offer, telling me, "I'm glad that at least I had a choice." I want to focus a bit on these two stories, for while the central conclusion in each -- something turning on the importance of choice -- is initially compelling, it is also, (...)

  9. What Do Fathers Owe Their Children?Claudia Mills - unknown
    This paper grows out of a story. A friend of mine got his girlfriend pregnant, in the usual way. He did not want to be a father, though he was willing to help pay for her abortion and to support her emotionally through the experience of abortion (his first choice); or (his second choice), he was willing to help pay her medical expenses for the birth and support her through the experience of giving birth and then relinquishing the child for (...)

    Goodness as Weapon.Claudia Mills - 1995 - Journal of Philosophy 92 (9):485-499.
    Most of us spend much of our time trying to get other people to act as we would like them to act, trying to influence them in some way to further our purposes or advance our ends. In this enterprise, we make use of a wide array of motivational levers; we take advantage of various sources of others’ susceptibility to influence. Much of this, I submit, is morally unproblematic. There is no moral reason why we should eschew all attempts at (...)

    The Moral Foundations of Civil Rights.Robert K. Fullinwider & Claudia Mills - 1986 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    More than two decades after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the issues of racial discrimination and affirmative action are still matters of controversy. The fragile national consensus on civil rights policy has been increasingly fragmented by resistance and confusion in recent years, especially under the impact of the Reagan administration's efforts to change its direction dramatically. Similarly, since the mid-1960s, the women's rights movement has worked to end discrimination and bring about greater equality for women in (...)

  19. Children's Literature, Vol. 24 (1995): 127-40.Claudia Mills - manuscript
    A children's book frequently takes as its subject the moral growth of its protagonist. The Little House books of Laura Ingalls Wilder trace Laura's growth in moral awareness and moral development from early childhood through her first employment, courtship by Almanzo, and marriage. Laura's moral maturation is rich and multi-layered, but at the heart of the Little House books, and shaping their progression as one multi-volumed novel, is the theme of obedience giving way to autonomy, literally moral self-rule.

    First, two stories. A friend, after struggling with years of infertility, divorces her husband. Single now, and still grieving her childlessness, she begins to explore the option of single-parent adoption. She tells me that she thinks in the end she will probably decide against adoption, but, in her words, "At least I'll know that I'm childless by choice.".

  23. Friendship, Fiction, and Memoir: Trust and Betrayal in Writing From One's Own Life.Claudia Mills - unknown
    I once attended a writing conference for aspiring authors of books for children, at which one speaker enraged the audience by making the pronouncement that, in his view, parents were disqualified to be authors of children's fiction. His reason: parents have to protect themselves from the reality of their children's pain and so wouldn't be able to write about childhood traumas with sufficient awareness and honesty. To this the audience, largely composed of mothers, shot back that parents are especially qualified (...)

  25. One Pill Makes You Smarter: An Ethical Appraisal of the Rise of Ritalin.Claudia Mills - unknown
    The statistics at least seem alarming. The production of Ritalin, an amphetamine derivative used for the treatment of attention deficit disorder in children (and lately, in adults as well), has risen a whopping 700 percent since 1990. According to figures given by Lawrence Diller in Running on Ritalin, over the decade, the number of Americans using Ritalin has soared from 900,000 to almost 5 million -- the vast majority children from the ages of 5 to 12, though there is a (...)

  28. Report From the Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy.Claudia Mills - unknown
    Recent years have seen the emergence of two interrelated trends in the arena of cultural politics. First, there has been a call for multiculturalism: for greater diversity in artistic and educational offerings, for a broadening of the spectrum of society's interest beyond the activities and experiences of dead or living white males. Thus, students demand courses in black, Hispanic, and women's studies; children's librarians clamor for more books about Native American and Asian youth; viewers of all races protest if their (...)

  29. Stigma and Openness.Claudia Mills - 2009 - Philosophy and Public Policy Quarterly 29 (1/2):19-23.
    Moving from the social and political arena to the choices we face in our own private lives, Claudia Mills asks how information about someone’s mental illness should be shared with others. While open communication about mental illness works toward the important goal of reducing its unfair stigma, it can cause harm or embarrassment, violate privacy, and challenge an individual’s own preferred self-representation. She offers tentative guidelines for how to proceed on this sensitive and morally charged issue.

  32. The Morals of Modernity. [REVIEW]Claudia Mills - 1997 - Review of Metaphysics 50 (3):671-671.
    In The Morals of Modernity, Charles Larmore engages two central features of modernity: the fact of inescapable disagreement about the nature of the good, and the prevalent naturalism that denies the possibility of moral knowledge. Larmore challenges the second, while building his moral and political theory upon the first.

    The Moral Problem. [REVIEW]Claudia Mills - 1996 - Review of Metaphysics 50 (1):184-184.
    According to this rich and rewarding book, "the moral problem" is that we are committed to three seemingly incompatible propositions about morality and human psychology. First, moral judgments are objective: they report beliefs about moral facts; when we argue about morality, there is a truth of the matter that we are arguing about. Second, moral judgments are practical: to judge that it is right to do x is, other things being equal, to be motivated to do x. There is something (...)
