    Who Authored On Liberty? Stylometric Evidence on Harriet Taylor Mill's Contribution.Christoph Schmidt-Petri, Michael Schefczyk & Lilly Osburg - 2022 - Utilitas 34 (2):120-138.
    It is well known that John Stuart Mill repeatedly acknowledges Harriet Taylor Mill's substantial contribution to On Liberty. After her death, however, he decides to publish the book under his name only. Are we justified in continuing this practice, initiated by JSM, of refusing unequivocal co-authorship status to HTM? Drawing on stylometric analyses, we make a preliminary case that JSM did not write On Liberty all by himself and that HTM had a hand in formulating it. Drawing on plausible standards (...)

    Altruism and the Indispensability of Motives.Mark S. Peacock, Michael Schefczyk & Peter Schaber - 2005 - Analyse & Kritik 27 (1):188-196.
    In this paper we examine Fehr’s notions of “altruism”, “strong reciprocity” and “altruistic punishment” and query his ascription of altruism. We suggest that, pace Fehr, altruism cannot be defined behaviourally because the definition of altruism must refer to the motives of actors. We also advert to certain inconsistencies in Fehr’s usage of his terms and we question his explanation of altruism in terms of ‘social preferences’.

    Altruism as a Thick Concept.Michael Schefczyk & Mark Peacock - 2010 - Economics and Philosophy 26 (2):165-187.
    In this paper, we examine different forms of altruism. We commence by analysing the definition and, after clarifying its conditions for altruism, we argue that it is not in with everyday linguistic usage of the term. We therefore consider a definition, which we likewise refine, and argue that it better reflects ordinary language use. Both behavioural and psychological approaches define altruism descriptively and thus fail to capture an important aspect of altruism, namely its normative component. Altruism, we argue, is a, (...)

    Background Justice Over Time: Property-Owning Democracy Versus a Realistically Utopian Welfare State.Michael Schefczyk - 2013 - Analyse & Kritik 35 (1):193-212.
    In Justice as Fairness, Rawls presents a case for property-owning democracy which heavily depends on a favourable comparison with welfare state capitalism. He argues that WSC, but not POD, fails to realise ‘all the main political values expressed by the two principles of justice’. This article argues that Rawls’s case for POD is incomplete. He does not show that POD is superior to other conceivable forms of WSC. In order to present a serious contender, I sketch what I call a (...)

  8. Verantwortung Für Historisches Unrecht: Eine Philosophische Untersuchung.Michael Schefczyk - 2011 - De Gruyter.
    The book provides the first systematic analysis of the question of responsibility for historical injustice since the publication of Karl Jaspers The Question of Guilt. Using the methods of modern philosophical analysis, it investigates the reasons and limits of moral and criminal responsibility and offers suggestions for solving the problem of compensation for past injustice.".

    Philosophy and the Marketplace: Introduction.Mark S. Peacock & Michael Schefczyk - 2000 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 7 (4):1-5.
    Whilst natural scientists have forged close links with industry, economists—in their capacity as consultants—with private enterprise, and psychologists with the burgeoning market for counselling services, philosophers have shown little eagerness to “ply their trade” in any commercial form whatsoever. Indeed, the very juxtaposition of concepts like “philosophy,” “money,” and “the marketplace” may already have raised eyebrows or induced mocking smirks. The image of this unworldly species assuming a commercial role comparable in scope or nature to that of practitioners of other (...)

    The Financial Crisis, the Exemption View and the Problem of the Harmless Torturer.Michael Schefczyk - 2012 - Philosophy of Management 11 (1):25-38.
    Richard Posner avers in his A Failure of Capitalism that managers bear no moral responsibility for the financial crisis. This view has numerous supporters in economics and philosophy, and I shall call it the ‘exemption view’. In this paper, I criticise four arguments for the exemption view and propose a superior alternative, the ‘participation view’. The participation view claims that managers can be co-responsible for harm, even if their actions were not necessary or sufficient conditions for its occurrence. The paper (...)

  14. Wirtschaftsethik.Christian Neuhäuser & Michael Schefczyk - 2013 - In Armin Grunwald (ed.), Handbuch Technikethik. Metzler. pp. 265-269.
    Mit der »Wirtschaftsethik« hat die deutschsprachige Diskussion einen Sonderweg beschritten, von dem noch offen ist, ob er sich international durchsetzen wird. Grob gesprochen, lässt sich die Wirtschaftsethik in die Felder »Unternehmensethik« und »Ethik der Wirtschaftssysteme« untergliedern. Während die Unternehmensethik unter dem Namen »business ethics« auch im englischsprachigen Raum geläufig ist, ist die Bezeichnung »economic ethics« allem Anschein nach durch Übersetzung aus dem Deutschen eingeführt worden und findet sich bislang selten in der englischsprachigen Literatur.

For Mill, the right to form one s own convictions and live according to them should only be infringed upon for one reason, namely to prevent harm to others.".

  17. John Stuart Mill.Michael Schefczyk - 2021 - In Michael G. Festl (ed.), Handbuch Liberalismus. J.B. Metzler. pp. 91-98.
    Es dürfte kaum möglich sein, die Bedeutung des Werks von John Stuart Mill für das politische Denken der Gegenwart zu übertreiben. Insbesondere die Schrift Über die Freiheit ist unbestritten ein Hauptwerk liberalen Denkens und ein unerlässlicher Referenzpunkt für gegenwärtige Debatten über Ziele und Grenzen staatlicher und gesellschaftlicher Machtausübung. Das 19. Jahrhundert in Großbritannien wird heute häufig gedanklich mit der Dominanz des Manchester-Liberalismus verbunden.

  19. Rede- und Meinungsfreiheit.Michael Schefczyk - 2021 - In Michael G. Festl (ed.), Handbuch Liberalismus. J.B. Metzler. pp. 191-198.
    Der Gedanke einer zu schützenden Rede- und Meinungsfreiheit findet sich in zahllosen grundlegenden Rechtsdokumenten. So hat nach Artikel 19 der Allgemeinen Erklärung der Menschenrechte jeder Mensch das Recht auf freie Meinungsäußerung. Ähnlich heißt es in Artikel 5 des bundesdeutschen Grundgesetzes, jeder habe das Recht, seine Meinung in Wort, Schrift und Bild frei zu äußern und zu verbreiten. Dagegen wird im First Amendment der Verfassung der Vereinigten Staaten kein subjektives Recht erwähnt; vielmehr wird dem Kongress verboten, die Redefreiheit gesetzlich einzuschränken.

    Perfektionismus und Pathologien der Selbstverwirklichung.Michael Schefczyk - 2010 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 58 (5):741-757.
    The article distinguishes two models of self-realization. The independence model claims that self-realization is compatible with leading a non-moral life, whereas the dependence model argues the converse. Hegel′s influential version of the dependence model aims at showing why and how self-realization must be embedded in a complex structure of reasonable social relations. I argue that Hegel′s dependence model abrogates the „Recht der Besonderheit, sich befriedigt zu finden” and is thus not convincing. What I call Hegel′s “inofficial theory”, however, concedes an (...)

    Trade-Offs Are Not Exogenous.Patricia Deflorin, Maike Scherrer-Rathje & Michael Schefczyk - 2013 - .
    Trade-offs between competitive priorities are often seen as exogenous – managers accept them as a given downside while simultaneously addressing multiple competitive priorities. However, some companies seem to face fewer trade-offs than others. The question is how companies reduce their trade-offs to successfully compete on multiple competitive priorities simultaneously. We address this question by theorising that bundles of action programmes are needed to reduce trade-offs between competitive priorities. We examine four Swiss manufacturing plants and show how the selection of action (...)

    Untangling Historical Injustice and Historical Ill.Michael Schefczyk - 2009 - Intergenerational Justice Review 1 (1).
    This article distinguishes historical ills and historical injustices. It conceives of the latter as legalised natural crimes; committed by morally competent agents. A natural crime consists in the deliberate violation of a natural right. 'Legalised' means that the natural crime must be prescribed; permitted or tolerated by the legal system. I advocate an approach which assesses moral competence on the basis of an exposedness criterion; that is: a historical agent must not be blamed for failing to see the right moral (...)

    Über Vernünftige Und Unvernünftige Reue.Michael Schefczyk - 2017 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 65 (5).
    Baruch Spinoza, Friedrich Nietzsche and, more recently, Ruediger Bittner argued that regret is unreasonable. My article criticises this view and describes what I consider to be the common-sense understanding of regret: In some – but not all – cases of flawed actions it is unreasonable to regret what one did. The article characterises the common-sense understanding by eight principles and offers an explication of core concepts.

    Four Charges Against the WTO.Michael Schefczyk - 2003 - Analyse & Kritik 25 (2):275-284.
    My comment on the third chapter of Peter Singer's One World consists of two parts. In the first, I criticise a common but simplistic approach to the issue of economic globalisation. This approach presumes that charges against the WTO can be translated - more or less directly - into charges against current development trends of the global economy. The WTO is not the only institution that legally structures the global economy, nor are decisions of the GATT or WTO panel necessarily (...)

    Many German historians are surprised to see how much attention the long neglected Armenian genocide has received in the news since 2015. A plethora of articles and public events was accompanied by attempts of no less than three of four constitutional bodies—the German government, the parliament, and the president—to come to grips with the question of how to understand the German role in the killing of far more than a million Armenians. Whereas Germany’s President Gauck spoke of ‘genocide’ in April (...)
