    The Principled Case for Employing Private Military and Security Companies in Interventions for Human Rights Purposes.Deane-Peter Baker & James Pattison - 2012 - Journal of Applied Philosophy 29 (1):1-18.
    The possibility of using private military and security companies to bolster the capacity to undertake intervention for human rights purposes has been increasingly debated. The focus of such discussions has, however, largely been on practical issues and the contingent problems posed by private force. By contrast, this article considers the principled case for privatising humanitarian intervention. It focuses on two central issues. First, does outsourcing humanitarian intervention to private military and security companies pose some fundamental, deeper problems in this context, (...)

  4. Plantinga's Reformed Epistemology: What's the Question? [REVIEW]Deane-Peter Baker - 2004 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 57 (2):77-103.
    Alvin Plantingas Warranted Christian Belief is without questionone of the central texts of the Reformed epistemology movement. Critiques of Plantingas defence have been both multiple and varied. As varied as these responses are, however, it is my contention that many of them amount to the same thing. It is the purpose of this paper to offer an overview of the main lines of attack that have been directed as Plantingas project, and thereafter to show how many, if not most, of (...)

    Are Mercenaries Just Warriors?Deane-Peter Baker - 2011 - The Philosophers' Magazine 54 (54):55-59.
    The problem with mercenaries can’t simply be that they do what they do for money. It would be pretty hypocritical to condemn them for providing combat services for money, given that we generally honour and praise those members of our nation’s Armed Forces who fight at the front line – even though theyreceive a pay cheque at the end of every month.

    Abortion and Civil Disobedience.Deane-Peter Baker - 2015 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 89 (1):139-151.
    Many believe strongly that states, even democratic states, commit serious moral harm by adopting policies that allow elective abortions. What avenues are available to citizens of those states who oppose such policies? In this paper I contest Nicholas Dixon’s claim that there is only a very limited scope for acts of civil disobedience in response to pro-abortion state policy. While acknowledging that a state policy of not allowing elective abortions imposes significant burdens on pregnant women, I contend that a consistent (...)

    ‘Dreams of Battle’: A Small Window Into the Evolution of Us Army Tactical Ethics, 1921–2009.Deane-Peter Baker - 2014 - Journal of Military Ethics 13 (4):302-319.
    E. D. Swinton's The Defence of Duffer's Drift: A Lesson in the Fundamentals of Small Unit Tactics, originally published in 1904, uses the device of a series of recurring but progressive nightmares to teach a set of tactical lessons that Swinton derived from his service in the Second Anglo-Boer War. Now a minor classic, The Defence of Duffer's Drift has had an enduring and international impact. The book's popularity has also led to the publication of several narratives inspired by the (...)

    Making Good Better: A Proposal for Teaching Ethics at the Service Academies.Deane-Peter Baker - 2012 - Journal of Military Ethics 11 (3):208-222.
    Abstract This paper addresses the teaching of mandatory ethics courses in a military context, with particular reference to the Service Academies of the United States Armed Forces. In seeking to optimize the core ethics course's potential to develop Midshipmen and Cadets' moral reasoning skills I suggest a model that employs case-based scenarios, woven together into a metanarrative, in place of the traditional historical case study and in a manner that gives students deliberate, guided practice in ethical decision-making. The described model (...)

    Rebellion and African Ethics.Deane-Peter Baker - 2016 - Journal of Military Ethics 15 (4):288-298.
    In this paper I draw on Thaddeus Metz’s pioneering work in African ethics, and particularly his account of the concept described by the terms ubuntu, botho, hunhu or utu, to sketch an African normative understanding of the act of rebellion against the authority of the state. Most commonly articulated in the phrase “a person is a person through other persons”, ubuntu is interpreted by Metz as a unique communitarian moral principle which can be described in its essence as the claim (...)

  19. Alvin Plantinga.Deane-Peter Baker (ed.) - 2007 - Cambridge University Press.
    Few thinkers have had as much impact on contemporary philosophy as has Alvin Plantinga. The work of this quintessential analytic philosopher has in many respects set the tone for the debate in the fields of modal metaphysics and epistemology and he is arguably the most important philosopher of religion of our time. In this volume, a distinguished team of today's leading philosophers address the central aspects of Plantinga's philosophy - his views on natural theology; his responses to the problem of (...)
