    Commentary on ‘Expressivism at the Beginning and End of Life’.Felicia Nimue Ackerman - 2020 - Journal of Medical Ethics 46 (8):548-549.
    Death can be good— I’ll tell you how. Just have it come Decades from now.1 Full disclosure: The above poem expresses my outlook, and I have trouble empathising with people who want to die. But that does not make me unable to evaluate objections to the expressivist argument against PAS. Reed sets forth the expressivist argument as follows: ‘[W]hen we allow PAS for individuals who are terminally ill or facing some severe disease or disability, we send a message of disrespect (...)

    Death is a Punch in the Jaw: Life-Extension and its Discontents.Felicia Nimue Ackerman - 2009 - In Bonnie Steinbock (ed.), The Oxford Handbook of Bioethics. Oxford University Press.
    This article deals both with greatly extended finite life and with immortality and uses the term ‘greatly extended life’ to cover both. Except where indicated, it proceeds from some assumptions adapted from Christine Overall. First, people would know the life expectancy in their society or would know that they were immortal. Second, everyone would have the opportunity to choose greatly extended life. Third, greatly extended life would not be mandatory; people would be able to opt out at any point.

    Consider these three positions about physician-assisted suicide:Physician-assisted suicide should be illegal for everyone.Physician-assisted suicide should be legal for only the terminally ill.Physician-assisted suicide should be legal for all competent adults.So far, the debate in America has been primarily between positions 1 and 2. I think it should be between positions 1 and 3. Both those positions embody reasonable viewpoints, and I will not try to decide between them in this chapter. But I will argue that the double standard embodied in (...)

    “I've Been Bad”: Using Light Verse in Teaching Philosophy.Felicia Nimue Ackerman - 2019 - Journal of Aesthetic Education 53 (3):3.
    In a 2017 article in The Providence Journal, local poet Christopher Johnson says poetry is "something I have to do."1 He adds, "In this political climate, where every group that doesn't identify as white, male and in power feels under attack by government, I have found my voice crying out against the machine more than usual. And I don't have a choice."2 He invokes the statement of singer, songwriter, and activist Nina Simone: "An artist's duty … is to reflect the (...)
