    Aesthetic Discrimination Against Persons.L. Duane Willard - 1977 - Dialogue 16 (4):676-692.
    An Acquaintance of mine decided, in the late 1950s, to become an officer in the U.S. Navy, until he discovered a Navy regulation stating that ugly men would not be accepted as officer candidates. Surely there is something suspicious about such a policy. Yet, in a time when people are so conscious of the many forms of discrimination — race, colour, sex, age, religion — it is somewhat surprising that little serious attention is given to the practice of what I (...)

    Needs and medicine.L. Duane Willard - 1982 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 7 (3):259-274.

    On Preserving Nature’s Aesthetic Features.L. Duane Willard - 1980 - Environmental Ethics 2 (4):293-310.
    I consider and reject four possible arguments directed against the preservation of natural aesthetic conditions. (1) Beauty is not out there in nature, but is “in the eye ofthe beholder.” I argue that since ingredients ofnature cause aesthetic experiences, we cannot justifiably disregard and exploit nature. Preservation of aesthetic conditions is compatible with both objective and nonobjective theories of aesthetic value. (2) Frequent aesthetic disagreements bring about irresolvable disputes concerning which segments of nature to preserve. I claim that these disputes (...)
