  1. Attitudes of Students and Accounting Practitioners Concerning the Ethical Acceptability of Earnings Management.Marilyn Fischer & Kenneth Rosenzweig - 1995 - Journal of Business Ethics 14 (6):433 - 444.
    There are many ways that accountants and managers can influence the reported accounting results of their organizational units. When such influence is directed at changing the amount of reported earnings, it is known as earnings management. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of surveys of undergraduate students, MBA students, and practicing accountants concerning their attitudes on the ethical acceptability of earnings management. Analysis of the survey results reveals how the attitudes of the three groups differ and (...)

    Mead and the International Mind.Marilyn Fischer - 2008 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 44 (3):pp. 508-531.
    In this paper I analyze the conceptions of internationalism and the international mind that Mead uses in "The Psychological Bases of Internationalism" (1915); in his 1917 Chicago Herald columns defending U.S. entry into the war; in Mind, Self, and Society (1934); and in "National Mindedness and International Mindedness" (1929). I show how the terms "internationalism" and "the international mind" arose within conversations among some Anglo-American thinkers. While Mead employs these terms in his own philosophical and sociological theorizing, he draws their (...)

  10. Global Feminist Ethics.Peggy Desautels, James L. Nelson, Sabrina Hom, Virginia Held, Marilyn Fischer & Victoria Davion - 2007 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    This volume is fourth in the series of annuals created under the auspices of The Association for Feminist Ethics and Social Theory . It includes papers by philosophers offering cutting-edge feminist perspectives on ethical issues of global and transnational significance. Feminist approaches to global issues address a great many questions that grip people who are not philosophers, nor even necessarily feminists. These questions include: What are the obligations of global citizenship? How must our concepts of caring, and of human rights, (...)

    Intentions, Rights and Wrongs.Marilyn Fischer - 1984 - Philosophy Research Archives 10:239-247.
    In this paper I argue against Fried’s thesis that a wrong must be intended by the violator in order for a person’s negative rights to be violated. With Fried’s requirement these rights become in a sense derivative from wrongs. This makes the relation between one’s negative rights and one’s moral integrity, upon which Fried wants to base rights, indirect and inappropriately weak. If rights are based on one’s status as a freely choosing, rational, moral personality, then whether one’s rights are (...)

    Keywords: What’s an Advocate to Do with the Words She’s Given?Marilyn Fischer - 2010 - The Pluralist 5 (3):32.
    I was ecstatic when i read Donna Gabaccia's discussion of "keywords." There is a name for this? People really write books about it? I was thrilled to learn that people do systematically what I, in a bumbling sort of way, dabble with. For the past few years, I have kept a "phrase file," entering what Gabaccia calls "central and evocative terms," along with instances of their use that I happen upon while doing other things. Every once in a while, I (...)

    Reading Addams's Democracy and Social Ethics as a Social Gospel, Evolutionary Idealist Text. [REVIEW]Marilyn Fischer - 2013 - The Pluralist 8 (3):17-31.
    There Is a Disciplinary divide between philosophers and historians in how they read Addams’s first book, Democracy and Social Ethics. Philosophers identify Addams primarily as a pragmatist. They often compare and contrast her thinking with that of James and Dewey, and find her a fruitful resource for contemporary discussions about gender, social justice, and peace. Much of this scholarship gives central place to Addams’s Democracy and Social Ethics. Except for nods to her 1892 essay “The Subjective Necessity of Settlements,” philosophers (...)

    Reading Dewey’s Political Philosophy Through Addams’s Political Compromises.Marilyn Fischer - 2013 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 87 (2):227-243.
    Both John Dewey and Jane Addams believed that the cure for the ills of democracy is more democracy. While their vision of democracy is rightly called radical, the processes through which they proposed to cure the ills of democracy are in large measure conservative, in the classical, Burkean sense of the term. To show this, I first explain how well their political philosophies line up, particularly their proposals for political reconstruction. I then use Addams’s experiences as a delegate to the (...)
