Gene Outka [21]Gene H. Outka [4]
  1. Agape an Ethical Analysis.Gene Outka - 1972 - Yale University Press.
    This study is the most comprehensive account to date of modern treatments of the love commandment. Gene Outka examines the literature on _agape_ from Nygren’s _Agape and Eros_ in 1930. Both Roman Catholic and Protestant writings are considered, including those of D’Arcy, Niebuhr, Ramsey, Tillich, and above all, Karl Barth. The first seven chapters focus on the principal treatments in the theological literature as they relate to major topics in ethical theory. The last chapter explores further the basic normative content (...)

  2. The Ethics of Human Stem Cell Research.Gene H. Outka - 2002 - Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 12 (2):175-213.
    : The medical and clinical promise of stem cell research is widely heralded, but moral judgments about it collide. This article takes general stock of such judgments and offers one specific resolution. It canvasses a spectrum of value judgments on sources, complicity, adult stem cells, and public and private contexts. It then examines how debates about abortion and stem cell research converge and diverge. Finally, it proposes to extend the principle of "nothing is lost" to current debates. This extension links (...)

    Social Justice and Equal Access to Health Care.Gene Outka - 1974 - Journal of Religious Ethics 2 (1):11 - 32.
    A societal goal to which more and more people in the United States appear to be committed--at least officially--is the assurance of comprehensive health services for every person irrespective of income or geographic location. This paper offers one possible moral justification of the goal. It does so by attempting to apply various standard conceptions of social justice to considerations about health care and to reflect about the reasons why some of the conceptions seem more relevant than others. Several institutional implications (...)

  7. Christian Neighbor-Love: An Assessmant of Six Rival Versions.Garth Hallett, Gene Outka, Stephen G. Post & Edward Collins Vacek - 1995 - Journal of Religious Ethics 23 (1):165-197.
    Recent work on the ethics of love may be divided into norm-centered and affective-centered approaches. Norm-centered approaches, exemplified by Hallett and Outka, argue for either moral parity between self and other or for self-subordination; they regard self-love as legitimate within strict boundaries; and they sharply distinguish agape from other forms of love. Affective-centered approaches, exemplified by Vacek and Post, con- centrate on love for God as the central context for neighbor-love; they ac- cord a high status to friendship, marriage, and (...)

    Theocentric Agape and the Self: An Asymmetrical Affirmation in Response to Colin Grant's Either/Or.Gene Outka - 1996 - Journal of Religious Ethics 24 (1):35-42.
    Colin Grant ranges widely in his attempt to retrieve Anders Nygren 's depiction of agape, but the claims I examine here are that agape is distinctive, we should offer a theocentric account of it, Nygren 's altruism should be endorsed, and secular defenses of impartiality are not other-regarding enough. I accept and, reject, and deny that is our only alternative to. Neighbor-love and self-love are like and unlike each other, and the unlikenesses are of more than one kind.

    God as the Subject of Unique Veneration: A Response to Ronald M. Green.Gene Outka - 1993 - Journal of Religious Ethics 21 (2):211 - 215.
    It is true that we draw nearer the key significance of Fear and Trembling if we supplement the now too standard readings of the text as an exploration of the moral force of divine commands, but to do that we need not resort to reading the work exclusively as a treatment of justification by faith. Kierkegaard presents Abraham as an exemplar whose faith is informed by, but not constricted by, the ethical and whose example has, and is meant to have, (...)

    Equality and Individuality: Thoughts on Two Themes in Kierkegaard.Gene Outka - 1982 - Journal of Religious Ethics 10 (2):171 - 203.
    The complicated interplay between equality and individuality in Kierkegaard's writings is explored. He is interpreted as affirming the notions conjointly; they modify and constrain each other in ways that constitute a bonding between them. Kierkegaard's claims are compared briefly with positions taken by modern moral philosophers and with historical controversies within Christian theology. Finally, two general effects of the bonding are noted: his dual affirmation forbids lines of interpretation of each notion otherwise possible, and a distinctive appraisal is fostered of (...)

    The question of whether (and, within the believing communities, the agreement that) scripture is a source and canon for moral discernment and judgment must be distinguished from the question of what this source provides or how this canon functions as a norm.1.

  23. Radical Pluralism and Truth.Werner G. Jeanrond, Jennifer L. Rike, John Kekes, Richard Mouw, Sanders Griffoen & Gene Outka - 1996 - Journal of Religious Ethics 24 (2):403-428.
    Recent discussions of religious, cultural, and/or moral diversity raise questions relevant to the descriptive and normative aims of students of religious ethics. In conversation with several illustrative works, the author takes up issues of terminology, explanations or classifications of types and origins of plurality and pluralism, the relations between pluralism as a normative theory and the aims of a liberal state, and the import of an emphasis on plurality or pluralism for the comparative study of religious ethics.
