    Innovative Surgery and the Precautionary Principle.Denise Meyerson - 2013 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 38 (6):jht047.
    Surgical innovation involves practices, such as new devices, technologies, procedures, or applications, which are novel and untested. Although innovative practices are believed to offer an improvement on the standard surgical approach, they may prove to be inefficacious or even dangerous. This article considers how surgeons considering innovation should reason in the conditions of uncertainty that characterize innovative surgery. What attitude to the unknown risks of innovative surgery should they take? The answer to this question involves value judgments about the acceptability (...)

    False consciousness.Denise Meyerson - 1991 - New York: Oxford University Press.
    This book is a contribution both to analytical philosophy of mind, and to Marxist philosophy. Marxists see pervasive irrationality in the conduct of human affairs, and claim that people in a class-divided society are prone to a variety of misconceptions. They say that we can suffer from "false consciousness" in our views about what inspires our behavior and in our judgments as to what is good for us. Meyerson uses the techniques of analytic philosophy to investigate this picture and argues (...)

    Medical Negligence Determinations, the “Right to Try,” and Expanded Access to Innovative Treatments.Denise Meyerson - 2017 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 14 (3):385-400.
    This article considers the issue of expanded access to innovative treatments in the context of recent legislative initiatives in the United Kingdom and the United States. In the United Kingdom, the supporters of legislative change argued that the common law principles governing medical negligence are a barrier to innovation. In an attempt to remove this perceived impediment, two bills proposed that innovating doctors sued for negligence should be able to rely in their defence on the fact that their decision to (...)

    Procedural justice and the law.Denise Meyerson & Catriona Mackenzie - 2018 - Philosophy Compass 13 (12):e12548.
    This article considers procedural justice in the law, with specific reference to the adjudicative context of governmental officials applying legal standards to particular cases. We critically survey the three main accounts of procedural justice in the literature: utilitarian, outcome‐based, and dignitarian. Utilitarian and outcome‐based theories share the instrumental view that the only purpose of procedures is to lead to accurate legal outcomes. However, the former are willing to trade off the benefits of accuracy against its costs, whereas the latter hold (...)

    Is there a right to access innovative surgery?Denise Meyerson - 2014 - Bioethics 29 (5):342-352.
    Demands for access to experimental therapies are frequently framed in the language of rights. This article examines the justifiability of such demands in the specific context of surgical innovations, these being promising but non-validated and potentially risky departures from standard surgical practices. I argue that there is a right to access innovative surgery, drawing analogies with other generally accepted rights in medicine, such as the right not to be forcibly treated, to buy contraceptives, and to choose to have an abortion, (...)

    Why Should Justice Be Seen to Be Done?Denise Meyerson - 2015 - Criminal Justice Ethics 34 (1):64-86.
    A well-known maxim instructs that justice should be seen to be done. When “seen” is understood in the sense of “observed”, the maxim is easily defended: open court proceedings protect against arbitrary and partial decisions. However, when “seen” is understood in the sense of “seem,” the maxim is more puzzling, since it is not obvious why courts should concern themselves with people's perceptions that justice has been done. This article addresses this issue, with a particular focus on the social and (...)

    Equality guarantees and distributive inequity.Denise Meyerson - manuscript
    Australian bills of rights are confined to the protection of civil and political rights. Economic, social and cultural rights were deliberately excluded from their coverage. This article draws on United Kingdom, Canadian and South African judgments with the aim of showing that the equality guarantees contained in these instruments can nevertheless be used as a vehicle for socio-economic claims. It further argues that there are sound moral and philosophical reasons that justify this approach.

    Jurisprudence.Denise Meyerson - 2011 - South Melbourne, Victoria, Australia: Oxford University Press.
    Jurisprudence explores fundamental questions about law and justice from a philosophical and theoretical perspective. Rather than merely describing the field, the book provides rigorous evaluation of jurisprudential arguments and explains in clear, accurate and accessible terms, the complex and cutting-edge debates which define the field of contemporary jurisprudence.

  14. Jurisprudence Ebook.Denise Meyerson - 2012 - Oxford University Press Anz.
    Jurisprudence is an accessible and engaging text that brings alive the key concepts of this complex and often difficult subject. Covering all the traditional schools of thought, Jurisprudence first examines the issues then discusses the responses of theorists and their competing positions so that readers can relate the theories to everyday situations. The text also tackles the fluid nature of the subject, helping readers to understand how jurisprudence is constantly being modified and refined by contemporary theorists.

  18. Three Versions of Liberal Tolerance: Dworkin, Rawls, Raz.Denise Meyerson - 2012 - Jurisprudence 3 (1):37-70.
    The idea that the exercise of state power should be limited so as to permit free choice in matters of personal conduct has been central to liberalism ever since John Stuart Mill defended the harm principle. However, this surface agreement conceals deeper disagreements. One disputed matter relates to the nature of the tolerant state: is it a state that refrains from improving our moral character by coercive means is it a state that takes no interest whatsoever in the moral character (...)

    Why courts should not balance rights against the public interest.Denise Meyerson - manuscript
    Most bills of rights allow for the restriction of rights in the interests of the public. But how should courts decide when the public interest should prevail? This article draws on philosophical work on practical reasoning to argue against the popular view that courts should use a balancing test which weighs the consequences of protecting the right against the consequences of restricting it. It argues that there are good reasons to 'overprotect' rights: judges, in their reasoning, should assign more weight (...)
