    Capability as Opportunity: How Amartya Sen Revises Equal Opportunity.Harlan Beckley - 2002 - Journal of Religious Ethics 30 (1):107 - 135.
    Although the concept of equal opportunity has received scant attention from theological ethics, it attracts widespread approval in the U.S. popular culture and has been examined extensively by contemporary moral philosophy. Amartya Sen's conception of capabilities as "freedom" or "real opportunity" corrects deficiencies in both popular and philosophical conceptions of equal opportunity that ignore interpersonal variations in mental, physical, and psychological abilities beyond agents' control. Recent theologically informed conceptions of love and common grace affirm and revise Sen's conception of equal (...)

    A raft that floats: Experience, tradition, and sciences in Gustafson's theocentric ethics.Harlan Beckley - 1995 - Zygon 30 (2):201-211.
    Although James Gustafson's use of the Christian Bible and tradition is not fully displayed in the essays published here, Bible and tradition are a crucial part of a composite rationale, which includes experience and the sciences, for his theocentric ethics. Gustafson's theocentric ethics employs the sciences to back, inform, and correct the Christian tradition and offers grounds for respecting the natural piety and morality of “nonreligious” persons while explaining and justifying why Christians draw on major themes and metaphors from their (...)

    Ethics and Advocacy: Bridges and Boundaries.Harlan Beckley, Douglas F. Ottati, Matthew R. Petrusek & William Schweiker (eds.) - 2022 - Eugene, Oregon: Cascade Books.
    Ethics and Advocacy considers the connections and differences between critical reflection or moral arguments or narratives and advocacy for particular issues regarding justice and moral behavior and dispositions. The chapters in this volume share an interest in overcoming polarizing division that does not enable fruitful give-and-take discussion and even possible persuasive justifications. The authors all believe that both ethics and advocacy are important and should inform each other, but each offers a divergent point of view on the way forward to (...)

    Social Science and Theological Ethics: A Response to Mary E. Hobgood.Harlan Beckley - 1997 - Journal of Religious Ethics 25 (2):343-350.
    Mary Hobgood rightly asserts the significance of social science analysis for theological ethics ; however, her argument that most injustice in the modern world is rooted in systemic flaws of global capitalism subverts her hope that governmental welfare policies can alleviate poverty and her support for the U.S. Catholic bishops' goals for welfare policies. On the other hand, if Hobgood's account of poverty and welfare exaggerates the role of systemic capitalism, as I contend it does, she has good reason to (...)
