    Argues that Wittgenstein, though himself often silent on particular ethical matters, gives us immense resources for understanding the aims appropriate to any philosophical ethics. This work re-examines some of the landmarks in the history of moral philosophy in order to cast contemporary ethical philosophy in a fresh light.

    Murder, Cannibalism, and Indirect Suicide.Jeremy Wisnewski - 2007 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 14 (1):11-21.
    Reeently, a man in Germany was put on trial for killing and consuming another German man. Disgust at this incident was exacerbated when the accused explained that he had placed an advertisement on the internet for someone to be slaughtered and eaten-and that his ‘vietim’ had answered this advertisement. In this paper, I will argue that this disturbing ease should not be seen as morally problematic. I will defend this view by arguing that (1) the so-called ‘vietim’ of this cannibalization (...)

    Affordances, Embodiment, and Moral Perception: A Sketch of a Moral Theory.Jeremy Wisnewski - 2019 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 25 (1):35-48.
    My aim in this article is programmatic. I argue that understanding perceptual experience on the model of perceptual affordances allows us to acknowledge the centrality of embodiment to moral phenomenology, on the one hand, and to see more transparently the place of the emotions in the moral life, on the other. I suggest some means by which moral perception, construed as the perception of moral affordances, might be cultivated.

  8. Ergon And Logistikon In Republic.Jeremy Wisnewski - 2008 - Polis 25 (2):261-267.
    This paper explores the tension between two views attributed to Plato: 1) that every person in a just society must fulfil his function, and 2) justice requires philosophical wisdom. It is argued that is not Plato's view in Republic, and that this can be seen as early as Book II.

    Foucault and Public Autonomy.Jeremy Wisnewski - 2000 - Continental Philosophy Review 33 (4):417-439.
    In this paper I argue that the social constructionist view found in Foucault''s work does not condemn one to a deterministic portrait of the ''self.'' Attention to the early and late writings allows one to articulate a weak notion of autonomy even under the heavy-handed descriptions found in Foucault''s early work. By recognizing autonomy as a public task, and not as a notion of freedom relegated to particular individuals, one is entitled to view autonomy as present in Foucault''s work - (...)
