    The Religion of Ethical Veganism.Lisa Johnson - 2015 - Journal of Animal Ethics 5 (1):31-68,.
    A survey was administered during fall 2013 to 163 self-identified adult ethical vegans and/or ethical vegetarians in the United States to determine whether the respondents+ beliefs meet the definition of religion according to U.S. federal law. The data demonstrate that a majority of the surveyed group possesses beliefs concordant with the definition of "religion" according to federal statutes, federal judicial tests, and regulatory law. Since religion is a protected characteristic in U.S. law, and ethical veganism meets various definitions for religion, (...)

    Teacher Candidate Disposition: Moral Judgement or Regurgitation?Lisa E. Johnson - 2008 - Journal of Moral Education 37 (4):429-444.
    Developing teacher candidates who are able to make moral judgements to equitably resolve classroom dilemmas, conduct student assessment and allocate resources is critical for today's diverse classrooms and should be part of fostering professional disposition. However, one challenge of incorporating dispositions in teacher education and a valid argument for those opposing the trend is how to accurately assess growth in the development of in teacher candidates. This study investigates two measures of moral judgement and explores the congruence between these assessments. (...)

  5. When Speaking of Probability in Behavior Analysis.Lisa M. Johnson & Edward K. Morris - 1987 - Behaviorism 15 (2):107-129.
    Probability is not an unambiguous concept within the sciences or in vernacular language, yet it is fundamental to much of behavior analysis. The present paper examines some problems this ambiguity creates in general,as well as within the experimental analysis of behavior, in particular. As background material, we first introduce the three most common theories of probability in mathematics and science, discussing their advantages and disadvantages, and their relevance to behavior analysis. Next, we discuss the concept of probability as encountered in (...)

    On the Suffering of Animals in Nature: Legal Barriers and the Moral Duty to Intervene.Lisa Johnson - 2017 - Journal of Animal Ethics 7 (1):63-77.
    Human beings have a moral duty to intervene to prevent or to mitigate the suffering of free-living animals. This article focuses on that duty, particularly as it exists when an animal asks for help and when animals who need help are within the zone of a person’s ability and willingness to help. As such, people should be free to help if they choose to do so, unencumbered by legal restrictions that outlaw such conduct. However, federal and state laws in the (...)

    Write Plainly, Help Animals- De Fontenay’s Without Offending Humans: A Critique of Animal Rights Does Neither.Lisa Johnson - 2013 - Journal of Animal Ethics 3 (2):182-187.
    Academic philosophers who purport to help animals should write plainly. Engaging in infighting, bristling at others’ arguments, and writing in obscure and impenetrable language does little to actually help animals, and it quite possibly distracts those who might wish to help animals. This review of Elisabeth De Fontenay’s Without Offending Humans: A Critique of Animal Rights discusses these common problems in academic works.
