  3. Dostoevsky’s Legal and Moral Philosophy: The Trial of Dmitri Karamazov.Raymond Angelo Belliotti - 2016 - Brill | Rodopi.
    The trial of Dmitri Karamazov embodies Dostoevsky’s general legal and moral philosophy. This book explains and critically analyses such notions as the rule of law, the adversary system of adjudication, the principle of universal moral responsibility, the plausibility of unconditional love, and the contours of human nature. The ballast for conclusions about all these ideas is an understanding of the relationship between individuals and their communities.

    Niccolo Machiavelli: The Laughing Lion and the Strutting Fox.Raymond Angelo Belliotti - 2008 - Lexington Books.
    This book places Machiavelli in historical context but argues that his understanding of moral conflicts is well ahead of his time. Instead of arguing for the autonomy of politics, as is commonly supposed, Machiavelli grapples with the special problems of role-differentiated morality, where the duties of public office often conflict with the demands of conventional morality.

    The Grounds of Ethical Judgement: New Transcendental Arguments in Moral Philosophy.Raymond Angelo Belliotti - 2005 - Review of Metaphysics 58 (3):667-669.
    The author accepts a conventional moral dilemma: Either we have a firm, rational foundation for our judgments about right and wrong, or we drown in a merciless sea of historical and sociological relativism. He advances and defends “new transcendental arguments” that supposedly demonstrate that we cannot rationally deny some propositions that are necessary for reasoning itself. If these propositions cannot be rejected rationally then they should be embraced as justified and true. As such, they can provide a firm, rational foundation (...)
