    Welcome Threats and Coercive Offers.Daniel Lyons - 1975 - Philosophy 50 (194):425 - 436.
    In American legal journals over the last decade there were hundreds of pages of articles worrying over threats to justice and freedom arising from the power to withhold benefits. Government officials have tremendous discretion to offer or withhold foreign aid, ration-books, government contracts and jobs, welfare subsidies, public housing, tariff protection, academic grants, alien resident status, paroles, or exemption from conscription or combat, from arrest or prosecution or imprisonment. Right-wing economists have worried about welfare-state emphasis on administrative discretion rather than (...)

    Protecting Animals Versus the Pursuit of Knowledge: The Evolution of the British Animal Research Policy Process.Dan Lyons - 2011 - Society and Animals 19 (4):356-367.
    Animal research in the United Kingdom is regulated by the Animals Act 1986, which requires a government minister to weigh the expected suffering of animals against the expected benefits of a proposed animal research project—the “cost-benefit assessment”—before licensing the project. Research into the implementation of this legislation has been severely constrained by statutory confidentiality. This paper overcomes this hindrance by describing a critical case study based on unprecedented primary data: pig-to-primate organ transplantation conducted between 1995 and 2000. It reveals that (...)

    The Last Word on Coercive Offers …(?).Daniel Lyons - 1982 - Philosophy Research Archives 8:393-414.
    A dozen philosophers have recently groped for a formula to pick out coercive offers: when P proposes to give a benefit or withhold a harm for Q’s compliance, when does p’s proposal count as coercive? Five formulae are analyzed here. One account is completely “moralized,” claiming that we can’t pick out coercive offers without first settling questions of rights. Two accounts are completely “non-moral,” using as criterion a baseline of “What would in fact have happened” if P had not wanted (...)

    Action, Excellence, and Achievement.Dan Lyons - 1976 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 19 (1-4):277 – 297.
    ?Achievement is doing what well?? A competitive democracy tends to repress this question as inegalitarian; it uses the slogan ?Whatever you do, do well?. But this slogan could not be taken seriously, nor is it really egalitarian. Our actual hierarchy of activities is based on an unargued and arbitrary consensus; it is an example of the way audiences control performers. Doubts about ?true achievement? are not merely ?philosophical?. Noting repressed concern about this issue suggests hypotheses to help explain some social (...)

    Plato's Attempt to Moralize Shame.Dan Lyons - 2011 - Philosophy 86 (3):353-374.
    I'd like to trace here a great rhetorical-philosophical project which runs through the writings of Plato – his attempt to moralize norms of honor and glory, his attempt to harness the powerful feelings of shame and glory to the ineffectual norms of justice.

    Are Luddites Confused?Dan Lyons - 1979 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 22 (1-4):381 – 403.
    General opposition to 'progress' is often seen as involving a personification of technology as an evil spirit. One version of 'luddism' is defended here as worthy of serious debate. ('Luddism' is an attempt to justify a general presumption that technical progress is bad for us, so technical innovations should not count as true achievement.) Our luddite says, 'If technical powers, misused, will cause more harm than good, these powers should count as bad. And such harmful misuse is likely, since the (...)
