    Wittgenstein and Lacan at the Limit: Meaning and Astonishment.Maria Balaska - 2019 - Springer Verlag.

    What Guides Moral Consideration? Wittgenstein and Diamond on Imagination and Animal Ethics.Maria Balaska - 2016 - Journal of Animal Ethics 6 (1):10-19.
    I draw on the work of Ludwig Wittgenstein and Cora Diamond to argue that imagination plays a key role in moral consideration. By broadening our concepts and drawing similarities, our imagination can help us see nonhuman beings as fellow beings, namely as beings with whom we share a life. I address two related issues: First, how can we ensure that the exercise of imagination does not merely lead to nonsense? Second, can the imagination remedy the supposed incommensurability between beings with (...)
