  1. Bullying the Bully: Why Zero-Tolerance Policies Get a Failing Grade.H. Theixos & Kristin Borgwald - 2013 - Journal of Social Influence 8 (2-3):149-160.
    Recent studies show that the current punitive approach to bullying, in the form of zero-tolerance policies, is ineffective in reducing bullying and school violence. Despite this significant finding, anti-bullying legislation is increasing. The authors argue that these policies are not only ineffective but that they are also unjust, harmful, and stigmatizing.

  2. Adult Children and Eldercare: The Moral Considerations of Filial Obligations.H. Theixos - 2013 - Michigan Family Review 17 (1).
    This essay investigates the demands on adult children to provide care for their elderly/ill parents from a socio-moral perspective.

    The decision to procreate—to have, raise, and nurture biological children—is almost never subject to moral scrutiny. In fact, most societies implicitly embrace and advance procreation, a view known as pronatalism: procreation is morally desirable, psychologically “normal,” and generally seen as a laudable life choice. Those who cannot procreate are understood to have suffered a severe loss, and having or desiring to have children is considered an important developmental marker of increasing maturity and progression toward adulthood.However, we argue that prospective parents (...)

  4. The Subject of Virtue by James Laidlaw. [REVIEW]H. Theixos - 2014 - Modernism/Modernity 22.
    Laidlaw’s aims to show how a Moral Philosophy that is enriched by Anthropology can work, and how an Anthropology that is enriched by Moral Philosophy is a viable and important aim. Thus Laidlaw’s work belongs in the discipline of Moral Anthropology, an emerging field that can benefit from the frameworks available in both disciplines, so that an anthropology of ethics emerges.
