    The Nature of Supererogation.M. W. Jackson - 1986 - Journal of Value Inquiry 20 (4):289-296.
    The concept of supererogation is an act that it is right to do but not wrong not to do. The moral trinity of the deontic logic excludes such acts from moral theory. A moral theory that is based on duty or obligation unqualified seems inevitably to make all good acts obligations, whether construed from a teleological or deontological point of view. If supererogation is a moral fact, no moral theory can survive without acknowledging it. One way to distinguish supererogation from (...)

    Aristotle on Rawls: A Critique of Quantitative Justice. [REVIEW]M. W. Jackson - 1985 - Journal of Value Inquiry 19 (2):99-110.
    Is the 20th Century as obviously preferable to all other times as Rawls would have us assume? Is 20th Century Stockholm preferable to 12th Century Florence in each and every way? In 12th Century Florence men lived without liberty or equality. Yet Florentines were reasonably happy, accepted their place in life, and communicated directly with others. R. Dworkin, ‘The Social Contract’, The Sunday Times, 9 July 1972, p. 31. It was a society with sharply marked class distinctions. In such a (...)

    Between Tradition and Revolution: The Hegelian Transformation of Political Philosophy.M. W. Jackson - 1987 - The Owl of Minerva 18 (2):205-206.
    Hegel transformed political philosophy in distinguishing between civil society and the state. That is Riedel’s thesis. Riedel reads Hegel in the context of the preceding and contemporary writers to whom Hegel responded, e.g., Plato, Aristotle, Hobbes, Rousseau, Haller, Wolff, Thomasius, and Kant. In the tradition composed of such writers, civil society was the state and vice versa. In light of the English industrial revolution and the French political revolution, Hegel concluded that this identity was untenable. Riedel traces the intellectual arguments (...)

    Hegels Rechtsphilosophie Im Zusammenhang der Europäischen Verfassungsgeschichte.M. W. Jackson - 1990 - The Owl of Minerva 22 (1):95-96.
    The sixteen essays on Hegel’s philosophy of right in relation to European constitutional history in this volume show the importance of the discovery of Hegel’s lecture notes. These notes from students before and after the publication of Die Philosophie des Rechts have done much to fill out Hegel’s elliptic style, at once grand and cryptic. Of particular use to several contributors to this collection are the newly published Peter Wannenmann manuscripts. Though the title of only one of four parts of (...)

    Logic and Politics: Hegel’s Philosophy of Right. [REVIEW]M. W. Jackson - 1991 - The Owl of Minerva 22 (2):229-229.
    In this book Peter Steinberger takes up one of the fundamental issues of political theory, namely the relationship between the individual and society. Most of Western political theory has accepted two principles: first, that individuals may be different and, second, that society requires rules and patterns. These two principles compete and may come into conflict.

    Morality and Universalizability: Essays on Ethical Universalizability.M. W. Jackson - 1988 - Idealistic Studies 18 (3):278-279.
    This handsome tome comprises twelve original contributions together with a detailed introduction by the editors. The anthology begins with Jan Narveson’s wide-ranging survey of the theses of universalizability. He begins with the claim that morality somehow involves universalizability because it ensures consistency. Implicit in this essay and throughout the volume is the assumption that morality consists of rules and principles. Consequently, moral philosophy is the search for and elucidation of such rules and principles. Though Narveson acknowledges that there are those (...)

    Maigret's Method.M. W. Jackson - 1990 - Journal of Value Inquiry 24 (3):169-183.
    The task of the historian is not one of tracing a series of links in a temporal chain; rather, it is his task to analyze a complex pattern of change into the factors which served to make it precisely what it was. The relationship which I therefore take to be fundamental to historiography is ... a relationship of part to whole, not a relationship of antecedent to consequent.Mandelbaum's historian relates the part to the whole, leaving it for the sociologist to (...)

    Philosophy, Politics and Citizenship: The Life and Thought of the British Idealists. [REVIEW]M. W. Jackson - 1989 - The Owl of Minerva 21 (1):102-103.
    The purpose of this book is to describe and evaluate the work of the Idealists in the period 1880–1914. Of course, the prince of these Idealists was T. H. Green, but it is made clear that he had many colleagues. For the Idealists the state was not merely an instrument, it was also an end. It provided a focus for a sense of community. The religious doctrines and metaphysical theories of the Idealists led them to emphasize the state.

    Schiller, Hegel, and Marx: State, Society, and the Aesthetic Ideal of Ancient Greece.M. W. Jackson - 1984 - The Owl of Minerva 15 (2):205-207.
    The Paris manuscripts made Marx’s humanism into a controversy. Louis Althusser argued that these early works were irrelevant to the mature work of Capital, while Shlomo Avineri contended that they were essential. In this book the thesis is that there is a continuous and complex development in Marx rather than Althusser’s coupure epistémologique or Avineri’s seamless web.

    “System of Ethical Life” and “First Philosophy of Spirit”. [REVIEW]M. W. Jackson - 1984 - The Owl of Minerva 16 (1):93-94.
    These two fragments, the earliest surviving examples of Hegel’s political theory, have not before been available in English. Though each is obscure, the germs of many of Hegel’s ideas are visible, including “spirit.” Annotations and appendices round off each fragment. An excellent index allows for cross-referencing. Moreover, H. S. Harris provides introductions to each fragment. That for the “System of Ethical Life” exceeds 90 pages. All told, more than two-thirds of the book is devoted to that fragment, but Harris is (...)

    The Government of Reason.M. W. Jackson - 1992 - Journal of Value Inquiry 26 (2):163-174.
    My hope has been to persuade readers that Hobbes's mighty thought experiment of the state of nature distorts our conceptual learning because it ignores the second morality. Instead, it inflates the first morality as the whole of morality. This inflation arises from Hobbes's exclusive preoccupation with universalizable reason. As important as universal reason undeniably is, it does not encompass the whole of moral reality. To suppose that it does is to distort moral reality. Like so many Enlightenment figures, Hobbes would (...)
