    Gender and Perspective Differences in Moral Judgement and Moral Orientation.Dennis L. Krebs, Sandra C. Vermeulen, Kathy L. Denton & Jeremy I. Carpendale - 1994 - Journal of Moral Education 23 (1):17-26.
    Abstract Forty male and female adults responded to two forms of Kohlberg's test??one in the standard third?person form, and the other imagining themselves as the protagonists in Kohlberg's dilemmas. Females obtained slightly lower moral maturity scores than males across both forms, but there were no sex differences in moral orientation. There were no significant effects for the perspective from which Kohlberg's test was taken, on either moral maturity or moral orientation. Care?oriented moral judgements were more prevalent in dilemmas involving life (...)

    The Forms and Functions of Real‐Life Moral Decision‐Making.Dennis L. Krebs, Kathy Denton & Gillian Wark - 1997 - Journal of Moral Education 26 (2):131-145.
    Abstract People rarely make the types of moral judgement evoked by Kohlberg's test when they make moral decisions in their everyday lives. The anticipated consequences of real?life moral decisions, to self and to others, may influence moral choices and the structure of moral reasoning. To understand real?life moral judgement we must attend to its functions, which, although they occasionally involve resolving hypothetical moral dilemmas like those on Kohlberg's test, more often involve promoting good social relations, upholding favourable self?concepts and justifying (...)

    Perceptions of Business Ethics: Students Vs. Business People. [REVIEW]Barbara C. Cole & Dennie L. Smith - 1996 - Journal of Business Ethics 15 (8):889 - 896.
    The purpose of this study was to assess the perceptions of business students and of business practitioners regarding ethics in business. A survey consisting of a series of brief ethical situations was completed by 537 senior business majors and 158 experienced business people. They responded to the situations, first, as they believed the typical business person would respond and, second, as they believed the ethical response would be.The results indicate that both students and business people perceived a significant gap between (...)

    Imagination, Phantasms, And The Making Of Hobbesian And Cartesian Science.Dennis L. Sepper - 1988 - The Monist 71 (4):526-542.
    In January 1641 Marin Mersenne forwarded to René Descartes a set of objections to the latter’s Meditations that Mersenne had solicited from “an Englishman.” This, along with some optical papers that Descartes may not have known were from the same person, was apparently his first philosophical encounter with Thomas Hobbes. The surviving correspondence and the Meditations’s third set of “Objections and Replies” show that the antipathy between these two otherwise excellent minds was virtually instantaneous. The irony has often been remarked (...)

    Goethe and the Poetics of Science.Dennis L. Sepper - 2005 - Janus Head 8 (1):207-227.
    In Representative Men, Ralph Waldo Emerson presented Goethe as the prototype of the writer elected by nature, and he identified Goethe’s specific genius as “putting ever a thing for a word.” But Goethe’s talents as writer and poet have long seemed to scientific readers to undermine his efforts to be a scientist, and to talk of his, or any, poetics of science would involve a category mistake. But putting things to words—that is, filling and structuring what we say about the (...)

    The Construction of Moral Dilemmas in Everyday Life.Gillian R. Wark & Dennis L. Krebs - 2000 - Journal of Moral Education 29 (1):5-21.
    This study investigated the extent to which people interpret real-life moral dilemmas in terms of an internal moral orientation, as Gilligan (1982, 1988) has suggested, or in terms of the content of the dilemma, as Wark and Krebs (1996, 1997) have reported. Thirty women and 30 men listed the issues they saw in descriptions of real-life prosocial, antisocial and social pressure types of moral dilemma. Results revealed that Gilligan's model underestimates the influence of dilemma content. Moral dilemmas differed in the (...)

    Science as a Process: An Evolutionary Account of the Social and Conceptual Development of Science.Dennis L. Sepper - 1989 - Review of Metaphysics 43 (1):169-170.
    For more than two decades the philosopher of science David Hull has been involved with the community of biologists engaged in questions of taxonomical classification and evolution. In this book Hull uses this perspective to good advantage. By narrating the disputes, enmities, and alliances he has witnessed, he develops a theory of scientific change as a process operating according to a kind of natural selection of concepts.

    A Framework Linking Non-Living and Living Systems: Classification of Persistence, Survival and Evolution Transitions. [REVIEW]L. Dennis, R. W. Gray, L. H. Kauffman, J. Brender McNair & N. J. Woolf - 2009 - Foundations of Science 14 (3):217-238.
    We propose a framework for analyzing the development, operation and failure to survive of all things, living, non-living or organized groupings. This framework is a sequence of developments that improve survival capability. Framework processes range from origination of any entity/system, to the development of increased survival capability and development of life-forms and organizations that use intelligence. This work deals with a series of developmental changes that arise from the uncovering of emergent properties. The framework is intended to be general, but (...)

    Adaptive Altruistic Strategies.Dennis L. Krebs - 2002 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (2):265-266.
    Biological, cognitive, and learning explanations of altruism, selfishness, and self-control can be integrated in terms of adaptive strategies. The key to understanding why humans and other animals sometimes resist temptation and sacrifice their immediate interests for the sake of others lies in mapping the design of the evolved mental mechanisms that give rise to the decisions in question.

    Benign Folie À Deux: The Social Construction of Positive Illusions.Dennis L. Krebs & Kathy Denton - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (6):525 - 526.
    McKay & Dennett (M&D) have done an admirable job of distinguishing among various forms of misbelief and evaluating the idea that they stem from evolved mental mechanisms. We argue that a complete account of misbeliefs must attend to the role that others play in creating and maintaining positive illusions.

    This book explains the background and rationale of the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's notorious attack on Isaac Newton's classic theory of white light and colors. Though the merits of Goethe's color science, as advanced in his massive Zur Farbenlehre, have often been acknowledged, it has been almost unanimously proclaimed invalid as physics. How could Goethe have been so mistaken? In his book, Dennis Sepper shows that the condemnation of Goethe's attacks on Newton has been based on erroneous (...)

    Can Irony Enrich the Aesthetic Imagination? Why Søren Kierkegaard's Explanation of Irony Is Better Than Richard Rorty's.Dennis L. Sansom - 2017 - Journal of Aesthetic Education 51 (2):17-32.
    I have two aims. I want to show first that a proper understanding and use of irony can enrich the aesthetic imagination and, second, that Søren Kierkegaard's description of irony rather than Richard Rorty's better explains how irony enriches the aesthetic imagination. The paper's central claim is that aesthetic imagination springs from experiencing the necessary tension between appearances and reality and that irony, correctly employed, accentuates in our thinking the imagination required to keep this tension in our representations, thereby enabling (...)

    Ethics and the Experience of Death: Some Lessons From Sophocles, Shakespeare, and Donne.Dennis L. Sansom - 2010 - Journal of Aesthetic Education 44 (4):18.
    If one of the purposes of an ethic is to help order our lives in a way we would think is fulfilling and purposeful, then with it, we should be able to learn about the significance of life in the experience of death. Not all well-known ethical theories can deliver this. Though preferential utilitarianism and duty-based deontological ethics are attractive as theoretical ways to order our lives, they fall short as useful ethical approaches before the humbling effects of death. Can (...)
