  2. Moral Theory in the Fiction of Isabelle de Charrière: The Case of Three Women.Emma Rooksby - 2005 - Hypatia 20 (1):1-20.
    Not all those who write philosophy are recognized as philosophers. In this paper I argue that Dutch writer Isabelle de Charrière, usually known as a novelist, is actually engaged in doing moral philosophy. In the second half of the eighteenth century, Charrière wrote novels about characters who endorsed moral theories and commitments. Her novels track the dilemmas that these characters face in trying to live according their moral theories and commitments. I consider the case for treating fiction as philosophically valuable, (...)

    How to Be a Responsible Slave: Managing the Use of Expert Information Systems. [REVIEW]Emma Rooksby - 2009 - Ethics and Information Technology 11 (1):81-90.
    Computer ethicists have for some years been troubled by the issue of how to assign moral responsibility for disastrous events involving erroneous information generated by expert information systems. Recently, Jeroen van den Hoven has argued that agents working with expert information systems satisfy the conditions for what he calls epistemic enslavement. Epistemically enslaved agents do not, he argues, have moral responsibility for accidents for which they bear causal responsibility. In this article, I develop two objections to van den Hoven’s argument (...)

    E-Mail and Eudaimonia: Global Justice and Moral Concern.Emma Rooksby - 2004 - South African Journal of Philosophy 23 (4):402-410.
    In his recent book, Happiness, Pedro Tabensky has argued for an Aristotelian account of happiness as eudaimonia or flourishing. However, his account of happiness appears to have the unfortunate implication that both individual eudaimonia and global justice are in principle unattainable. I examine Tabensky's reasons for believing that his account has such unfortunate implications, and suggest that, if appropriately modified, he would be able to avoid them. S. Afr. J. Philos. Vol.23(4) 2004: 402-410.

    Managing Electronic Workplace Surveillance to Respect Employee Autonomy.Emma Rooksby & Natasha Cica - 2008 - Philosophy of Management 6 (3):75-85.
    Electronic surveillance of employees in the workplace presents both opportunities and risks to contemporary managers. Some of the moral risks associated with electronic workplace surveillance are well-known and discussed in the literature. A lesser-known risk, which is explored and addressed in this article, is the threat that electronic surveillance poses, when used inappropriately, to employees’ personal autonomy. This article elaborates the concept of personal autonomy, illustrates how electronic workplace surveillance might be used to violate personal autonomy, and suggests some management (...)

    The Ethical Status of Non-Commercial Spam.Emma Rooksby - 2007 - Ethics and Information Technology 9 (2):141-152.
    Much attention has been given in recent years to the moral status of commercial spam. Less attention has been focused on newer, non-commercial varieties of spam, such as spam from political parties, community sector organizations and governments. This article makes a start on evaluating the moral status of these non-commercial varieties of spam, drawing on arguments used to evaluate commercial spam.
