    Partiality and Weighing Harm to Non-Combatants.David Lefkowitz - 2009 - Journal of Moral Philosophy 6 (3):298-316.
    The author contests the claim made independently by F.M. Kamm and Thomas Hurka that combatants ought to assign greater weight to collateral harm done to their compatriot noncombatants then they assign to collateral harm done to enemy non-combatants. Two arguments by analogy offered in support of such partiality, one of which appeals to permissible self/other asymmetry in cases of harming the few to save the many, and the second of which appeals to parents' justifiable partiality to their children, are found (...)

    On the Concept of a Morally Relevant Harm.David Lefkowitz - 2008 - Utilitas 20 (4):409-423.
    The author argues that only when the two harms are morally relevant to one another may an agent take into account the number of people he can save. He defends an orbital conception of morally relevant harm, according to which harms that fall within the of a given harm are relevant to it, while all other harms are not. The possibility of preventing a harm provides both a first-order reason to prevent that harm, and a second-order reason not to consider (...)

    Legitimate Political Authority and the Duty of Those Subject to It: A Critique of Edmundson.David Lefkowitz - 2004 - Law and Philosophy 23 (4):399-435.
    According to William Edmundson, a legitimatepolitical authority is one that claims tocreate in its subjects a general duty ofobedience to the law, and that succeeds increating in its subjects a duty to obey stateofficials when they apply the law in particularcases. His argument that legitimate politicalauthority does not require the state''s claim tobe true rests on his analysis of legitimatetheoretical authority, and the assumption thattheoretical and practical authority are thesame in the relevant respects, both of whichare challenged here. In addition, (...)

    Blame and the Criminal Law.David Lefkowitz - 2015 - Jurisprudence: An International Journal of Legal and Political Thought 6 (3):451-469.
    Many retributivists appear to presume that the concept of blame that figures in their accounts of just punishment is the same one people employ in their interpersonal moral relationships. David Shoemaker contends that this presumption is mistaken. Moral blameworthiness, he maintains, tracks only the meaning of a person's action––his reasons for acting as he did––while criminal blameworthiness, which he equates with liability to punishment, tracks only the impermissibility of an agent's action. I contest the second of these two claims, and (...)

    Should the Law Convict Those Who Act From Conviction? Reflections on a Demands-of-Conscience Criminal Defense.David Lefkowitz - 2016 - Criminal Law and Philosophy 10 (4):657-675.
    How should the judge or jury in a just criminal court treat a civil disobedient, someone who performs a conscientiously motivated communicative breach of the criminal law? Kimberley Brownlee contends that all else equal a court of law should neither convict nor punish such offenders. Though I agree with this conclusion, I contend that Brownlee mischaracterizes the nature of the criminal defense to which civil disobedients are entitled. Whereas Brownlee maintains that such actors ought to be excused for their criminal (...)

  19. A Moral Contractualist Defense of Political Obligation.David B. Lefkowitz - 2003 - Dissertation, University of Maryland, College Park
    Do citizens of any modern state have a general duty to acknowledge its authority to determine for them, for action guiding purposes, whether certain kinds of conduct are morally permissible, required, or forbidden? That is, is there a duty to obey the law? Moral Contractualism, I contend, entails that citizens of a liberal democratic state have such a duty. ;Treating others morally often requires agents to act collectively, but even agents who accept the moral necessity of collective action will sometimes (...)

  22. Solving The Chronological Paradox In Customary International Law: A Hartian Approach.David Lefkowitz - 2008 - Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence 21 (1):128-148.
    As traditionally conceived, the creation of a new rule of customary international law requires that states believe the law to already require the conduct specified in the rule. Distinguishing the process whereby a customary rule comes to exist from the process whereby that customary rule becomes law dissolves this chronological paradox. Creation of a customary rule requires only that states come to believe that there exists a normative standard to which they ought to adhere, not that this standard is law. (...)

  24. The Principle of Fairness and States’ Duty to Obey International Law.David Lefkowitz - 2011 - Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence 24 (2):327-346.
    I employ the principle of fairness to argue that many existing states have a moral duty to obey international law simply in virtue of its status as law. On this voluntarist interpretation of the principle of fairness, agents must accept the benefits of a cooperative scheme in order to acquire an obligation to contribute to that scheme’s operation. I contend that states can accept the benefits international law provides, and that only if they do so do states have a fair-play (...)
