    Stoic Realpolitik.Firmin DeBranander - 2006 - International Philosophical Quarterly 46 (3):277-292.
    Thanks to its doctrines of natural right and moral egalitarianism and to its prominent historical role in defying totalitarian government, Stoicism is often cited as a touchstone for liberal democracy. Less well known, however, is an alternate lineage, culminating in a Stoic Realpolitik that emerges in Justus Lipsius’s political writings. The foundation of this Realpolitik becomes increasingly clear in the progression of Stoic thought through Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius. Tracing this lineage reveals that the subject of politics isfundamentally problematic (...)

    Human-Aligned Artificial Intelligence is a Multiobjective Problem.Peter Vamplew, Richard Dazeley, Cameron Foale, Sally Firmin & Jane Mummery - 2018 - Ethics and Information Technology 20 (1):27-40.
    As the capabilities of artificial intelligence systems improve, it becomes important to constrain their actions to ensure their behaviour remains beneficial to humanity. A variety of ethical, legal and safety-based frameworks have been proposed as a basis for designing these constraints. Despite their variations, these frameworks share the common characteristic that decision-making must consider multiple potentially conflicting factors. We demonstrate that these alignment frameworks can be represented as utility functions, but that the widely used Maximum Expected Utility paradigm provides insufficient (...)

    Do Guns Make Us Free?: Democracy and the Armed Society by Firmin DeBrabander.David DeGrazia - 2016 - Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 26 (3):15-19.
    Many critics of American gun culture and policy argue that the public health benefits of stricter regulations compensate for the associated loss of freedom: a bit less freedom is an acceptable cost for the expected gains in public safety. By contrast, gun advocates sometimes claim that freedom to own guns underlies all other important freedoms and therefore deserves priority over considerations of public health. In this volume, philosopher Firmin DeBrabander takes a distinct critical approach, denying any significant loss of (...)

  18. Life After Privacy: Reclaiming Democracy in a Surveillance Society.Firmin DeBrabander - 2020 - Cambridge University Press.
    Privacy is gravely endangered in the digital age, and we, the digital citizens, are its principal threat, willingly surrendering it to avail ourselves of new technology, and granting the government and corporations immense power over us. In this highly original work, Firmin DeBrabander begins with this premise and asks how we can ensure and protect our freedom in the absence of privacy. Can—and should—we rally anew to support this institution? Is privacy so important to political liberty after all? DeBrabander (...)

    Meaning in Spinoza’s Method. [REVIEW]Firmin Debrabander - 2004 - Review of Metaphysics 58 (2):434-436.
    Spinoza’s philosophy has bequeathed longstanding query and dispute regarding the meaning of several doctrines and elements of his system as well as the influences of his innovative, controversial project. Prominent among those debated aspects of Spinoza’s Ethics are its presentation in more geometrico and the goal toward which it purportedly directs us, a scientia intuitiva that will make us blessed, free, and eternal in some sense. In his book Meaning in Spinoza’s Method, Aaron Garrett maintains that the method and the (...)
