  3. Ethics in Politics: The Rights and Obligations of Individual Political Agents.Emily Crookston, David Killoren & Jonathan Trerise (eds.) - 2017 - Routledge.
    Political ethics, a subfield of applied ethics, is concerned with normative questions about voters, politicians, lobbyists, and other individual political agents. Compared with other fields in applied ethics political ethics has not developed into an area of intense interest in academic philosophy. Debates over the main questions in political ethics occur in mainstream news, on social media, in living rooms and neighborhood bars, etc., but for the most part have not bled over into the pages of philosophy journals and books.

  4. Ethics in Politics: The Rights and Obligations of Individuals.Emily Crookston, David Killoren & Jonathan Trerise (eds.) - 2016 - Routledge.
    Recent work in political philosophy has tended to focus on issues related to states and governments. Only rarely do political philosophers focus on the rights and obligations of individual agents—voters, lobbyists, politicians, party members—acting within political systems. _Political Ethics: Voters, Lobbyists, and Politicians _ aims to partially fill a gap in the literature, offering twenty never-before-published essays on ethical issues facing individuals in politics. The chapters cover three major areas of political ethics: The Rights and Obligations of Politicians; The Rights (...)

  7. On Securing Rights to Access Information.Jonathan Trerise - 2014 - Journal of Information Ethics 23 (1):42-54.
    Some might argue that a right to access information is problematic, as it requires too much from others. Being a "positive right," the possession of which foists upon others a duty to provide something, an RAI might be thought to contrast with a "negative right," such as the right not to be harmed. Here, other people have duties only to refrain from performing certain actions. The critics this paper is concerned with continue that positive rights are problematic, where negative rights (...)

  8. Political Ethics: Voters, Lobbyists, and Politicians.Emily Crookston, David Killoren & Jonathan Trerise (eds.) - 2016 - Routledge.
    Most research in political philosophy focuses on issues related to states and governments. Only rarely do political philosophers focus on the ethical actions of individuals—voters, lobbyists, politicians, party members—acting within large-scale political systems. _Political Ethics _works against the dominant paradigm, offering twenty-one, never before-published essays on the ethics of non-statist political agents. The chapters cover three major areas of political ethics: The Rights and Obligations of Politicians; The Rights and Obligations of Citizens; and Political Parties. The volume is a ground-breaking (...)

    The Influence of Patents on Science.Jonathan Trerise - 2016 - Politics, Philosophy and Economics 15 (4):424-450.
    This paper is a critique of the current US patent system along general consequentialist lines. I present a pro tanto case against it because of its effects on scientific inquiry. The patent system is often thought to be justified because it provides incentives to innovate. I challenge this concern. Economists and legal scholars have spent a good portion of time analyzing particular aspects of the patent system. I here synthesize their work, showing how it amounts to a pro tanto moral (...)
