  1. Falsely, Sanely, Shallowly.Janet McCracken - 2005 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 19 (1):139-156.
    Our reluctance to demystify grief is a sign of the distinctive obligation and discomfort that people feel towards those who have died. These feelings, however, are instructive about the nature of grief. As a vehicle of a living person’s relation to the dead, grief is mysterious—and we are rightly reluctant to take that mystery away. But grief is not to be avoided by philosophy on that account. I defend a less Romantic view of grief, in which a grieving person’s experience (...)

    Virtue Ethics and the Parable of the Sadhu.Janet McCracken, William Martin & Bill Shaw - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (1):25-38.
    This article examines the various pedagogic models suggested by widely used texts and finds them to be predominately rule-based or rule directed. These approaches to the subject matter of business ethics are quite valuable ones, but we find them to leave no room for the study of the virtues. We intend to articulate our reasons for supporting a central if not exclusive role for virtue ethics.

    Comic and Tragic Interlocutors and Socratic Method.Janet McCracken - 1999 - Teaching Philosophy 22 (4):361-375.
    Teaching is often framed in terms of performance: an orator stands before a crowd, attempting to capture attention and to deliver material prepared in advance. This analogy falls apart, however, when one considers the extent to which teaching is a dialogical endeavor. Looking to the Meno, the Symposium, and the Republic, this paper offers an interpretation of these texts which deepens our understanding of Plato’s theory of education. First, a Platonic view of education recommends a view of educators not as (...)

    Dogs and Birds in Plato.Janet McCracken - 2014 - Philosophy and Literature 38 (2):446-461.
    Arguing for censorship of the poets in the Republic, Socrates draws most of his examples from Homer. These examples often depict soldiers facing death on the battlefield. Homer, in turn, often represents a soldier's death with the image of dogs and birds scavenging upon his body. Homer's representations of death, then, often include dogs or birds, and these images are found in the near background of Plato's Republic. How does Plato himself use these animal images? I discuss Plato's depictions of (...)

McDermott, Eric Ormsby, Thomas W. Overholt, Graham Parkes, Roy Perrett, Stephen H. Phillips, Homayoon Sepasi-Tehrani & Jacqueline Trimier - 2003 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    In the second edition of this groundbreaking text in non-Western philosophy, sixteen experts introduce some of the great philosophical traditions in the world. The essays unveil exciting, sophisticated philosophical traditions that are too often neglected in the western world.
