    Adam Smith and Self-Interest.Eugene Heath - 2013 - In Christopher J. Berry, Maria Pia Paganelli & Craig Smith (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of Adam Smith. Oxford University Press. pp. 241.
    The concepts of self-interest and self-love feature prominently in both The Theory of Moral Sentiments and The Wealth of Nations. Various notions of self-preservation, self-interest, and self-love are distinguished, and it is shown how self-love functions less as a motive than as an orientation. Although self-love may corrupt moral perception, the impartial spectator serves as an antidote. Smith’s conception of self-interest in The Wealth of Nations is a broad one and not inconsistent with the moral psychology of The Theory of (...)

  2. Two Cheers and a Pint of Worry: An On-Line Course in Political and Social Philosophy.Eugene Heath - 1997 - Teaching Philosophy 20 (3):277-300.
    This paper details the author’s experience of developing and teaching an online course in social/political philosophy for the SUNY Learning Network. The author’s intention was to design an online philosophy course as similar to a traditional philosophy classroom experience as possible. Accordingly, students were required to buy and read the texts, to answer weekly reading comprehension questions, to participate in an online discussion, and to complete a final essay exam of two questions. After covering course design in great detail, including (...)

    In the Garden of God: Religion and Vigour in the Frame of Ferguson's Thought.Eugene Heath - 2015 - Journal of Scottish Philosophy 13 (1):55-74.
    Although Adam Ferguson is regarded typically as a secular thinker, the larger frame of this thought may reflect his theism. After recounting, in summary fashion, elements of Ferguson's life, the paper sets forth his embrace of standard doctrines of eighteenth-century natural theology, including the metaphysical basis between mind, activity, and moral happiness, as well as Ferguson's treatment of an important theme of Christian belief – human sinfulness. Turning to Ferguson's moral theory, it is argued that energetic and moralized activity, vigour, (...)

    How to Understand Liberalism as Gardening.Eugene Heath - 1989 - Political Theory 17 (1):107-113.
    The attitude of the liberal towards society is like that of the gardener who tends a plant and, in order to create the conditions most favorable to its growth, must know as much as possible about its structure and the way it functions.

    The Kingdom of Freedom in the Garden of God: Ferguson's Postulates of Moral Action.Zisai Lin & Eugene Heath - 2018 - Journal of Scottish Philosophy 16 (2):105-123.
    Similar to Immanuel Kant, Adam Ferguson links freedom of the will, the existence of God, and immortality to the possibility of moral conduct. We explore these three dimensions of Ferguson's thought across several of his works. Ferguson's account of these postulates of morality not only anticipates Kant but incorporates a religious sensibility that manifests an appeal to nature rather than scripture.

    Rules, Function, and the Invisible Hand an Interpretation of Hayek's Social Theory.Eugene Heath - 1992 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 22 (1):28-45.
    Hayek's social theory presupposes that rules are unintended consequences of individual actions. This essay explicates one kind of Hayekian explanation of that claim. After noting the kinds of rules that Hayek believes are subject to such a theory, the essay distinguishes three functional explanations advocated by Hayek. He combines one of these functional explanations with an invisible hand explanation. A schema suitable for constructing invisible hand-functional evolutionary theories is employed to outline this combination.

    Private Vices, Publick Benefits? The Contemporary Reception of Bernard Mandeville.Eugene Heath - 1999 - Hume Studies 25 (1/2):225-240.
    Of those philosophers that Hume credits with having "begun to put the science of man on a new footing", Bernard Mandeville has received relatively little attention from contemporary philosophers and Hume scholars. In contrast, Mandeville was not so neglected in his own age, a point well-chronicled in F. B. Kaye's introduction to The Fable of the Bees, and substantiated, tangibly, by this collection of writings excellently assembled and edited by J. Martin Stafford. In the eighteenth century and, more particularly, in (...)

    Altruism.Eugene Heath - 1995 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (4):921-923.
    In "The Reasons We Can Share: An Attack on the Distinction Between Agent-Relative and Agent-Neutral Values," Christine M. Korsgaard proposes that moral theory has inappropriately focused on how moral action is to effect consequences rather than how such action is an intersubjective matter of interpersonal relations. She develops this point rather indirectly by examining, quite carefully, Thomas Nagel's view that certain sorts of reasons, such as those relating to personal projects, are agent-relative rather than agent-neutral. Korsgaard argues that in so (...)

    Profits, Priests, and Princes: Adam Smith's Emancipation of Economics From Politics and Religion.Eugene Heath - 1995 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (4):915-916.
    After an opening chapter framing the issues of the book, the next two explore how WN, by emphasizing economic ends rather than those of classical or republican politics, reduces justice to historically evolved rules for securing lives and property and renders government subservient to economic policy. The fourth chapter notes the complexity of Smith's moral psychology, pointing out how WN emphasizes the acquisition of the very material ends which TMS discredits. Nonetheless, both works endorse "bourgeois virtue," whether characterized in terms (...)

    Carrying Matters Too Far? Mandeville and the Eighteenth-Century Scots on the Evolution of Morals.Eugene Heath - 2014 - Journal of Scottish Philosophy 12 (1):95-119.
    Mandeville offers an evolutionary explanation of norms that pivots on the power of praise to affect individuals. Yet this sort of account is not mentioned by Hume or Ferguson, and only indirectly noted by Smith. Nonetheless, there are various similarities in the thought of Mandeville and these philosophers. After delineating some resemblances, the essay takes up the objection Hume poses to Mandeville: praise fails to motivate if individuals take no pride in moral conduct. To this challenge there is a Mandevillean (...)
