    The concept of vulnerability in aged care: a systematic review of argument-based ethics literature.Chris Gastmans, Roberta Sala & Virginia Sanchini - 2022 - BMC Medical Ethics 23 (1):1-20.
    BackgroundVulnerability is a key concept in traditional and contemporary bioethics. In the philosophical literature, vulnerability is understood not only to be an ontological condition of humanity, but also to be a consequence of contingent factors. Within bioethics debates, vulnerable populations are defined in relation to compromised capacity to consent, increased susceptibility to harm, and/or exploitation. Although vulnerability has historically been associated with older adults, to date, no comprehensive or systematic work exists on the meaning of their vulnerability. To fill this (...)

    The Value of Nurses' Codes: European nurses' views.Win Tadd, Angela Clarke, Llynos Lloyd, Helena Leino-Kilpi, Camilla Strandell, Chryssoula Lemonidou, Konstantinos Petsios, Roberta Sala, Gaia Barazzetti, Stefania Radaelli, Zbigniew Zalewski, Anna Bialecka, Arie van der Arend & Regien Heymans - 2006 - Nursing Ethics 13 (4):376-393.
    Nurses are responsible for the well-being and quality of life of many people, and therefore must meet high standards of technical and ethical competence. The most common form of ethical guidance is a code of ethics/professional practice; however, little research on how codes are viewed or used in practice has been undertaken. This study, carried out in six European countries, explored nurses’ opinions of the content and function of codes and their use in nursing practice. A total of 49 focus (...)

    The reasons of the unreasonable: Is political liberalism still an option?Benedetta Giovanola & Roberta Sala - 2021 - Sage Publications Ltd: Philosophy and Social Criticism 48 (9):1226-1246.
    Philosophy & Social Criticism, Volume 48, Issue 9, Page 1226-1246, November 2022. In this study, we claim that political liberalism, despite harsh criticism, is still the best option available for providing a just and stable society. However, we maintain that political liberalism needs to be revised so as to be justifiable from the perspective of not only the “reasonable” in a Rawlsian sense but also the ones whom Rawls labels as “unreasonable.” To support our claim, going beyond Rawls’s original account, (...)

    Training Ethical Competence in a World Growing Old: A Multimethod Ethical Round in Hospital and Residential Care Settings.Federico Pennestrì, Giulia Villa, Noemi Giannetta, Roberta Sala, Duilio Fiorenzo Manara & Roberto Mordacci - 2023 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 20 (2):279-294.
    Ethical challenges are traditionally described in a negative light, even though moral conflict can express the individual ability to perceive when something is not working and promote change. The true question, therefore, is not to how to silence moral conflict but how to educate it. Although the need for ethical support of health- and social-care professionals in elderly care is clearly perceived, there is no universal method for providing effective interventions. The authors hypothesize that adequate training sessions can help care (...)

    The place of unreasonable people beyond Rawls.Roberta Sala - 2013 - European Journal of Political Theory 12 (3):253-270.
    In this article I look for an alternative way in which ‘unreasonable’ people may be included in a liberal society. Differing from Rawls, whose reasonable hope is for unreasonable people gradually to adhere to liberal institutions so that, over time, an overlapping consensus is reached, I propose the alternative way of them supporting these institutions as a special modus vivendi, which does not require them to renounce their non-reasonableness. First I detail the Rawlsian notion of reasonableness and unreasonableness; second, I (...)

    Autonomy, Responsibility and the Italian Code of Deontology for Nurses.Gaia Barazzetti, Stefania Radaelli & Roberta Sala - 2007 - Nursing Ethics 14 (1):83-98.
    This article is a first assessment of the Italian Code of deontology for nurses (revised in 1999) on the basis of data collected from focus groups with nurses taking part in the Ethical Codes in Nursing (ECN) project. We illustrate the professional context in which the Code was introduced and explain why the 1999 revision was necessary in the light of changes affecting the Italian nursing profession. The most remarkable findings concern professional autonomy and responsibility, and how the Code is (...)

    Compliance with justice: shared values and modus vivendi.Francesca De Vecchi & Roberta Sala - 2021 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 26 (1):56-70.
    In this paper we investigate ways to comply with justice in a liberal democracy. In order to do that, we sketch Rawls’s account of moral-consensus stability and discuss the alternative idea of stability reached through a modus vivendi. We defend modus vivendi as a way to achieve stability backed by a variety of reasons and even by ‘non-reasons’. By ‘non-reasons’ we mean alternative sources of motivation for compliance as a precondition of a stable coexistence. We focus on such sources, which (...)

    What Went Wrong with Saman’s Story? Cultural Practice, Individual Rights, Gender, and Political Polarization.A. Elisabetta Galeotti & Roberta Sala - 2023 - Res Publica 29 (4):629-646.
    In this paper the authors deal with the story of Saman Abbas, an 18-year-old girl of Pakistani origin, who disappeared in Italy and was killed by her family after she refused an arranged marriage. The case raised a public debate between right-wing parties, who accused the left-wing parties of being culpably blind to the danger of Islam and too tolerant towards illiberal cultures, and left-wing politicians who responded equating Saman’s murder with the domestic killing of Italian women. We argue that (...)

    Contextualistic Critiques of the Principle-Based Approach to Bioethics.Roberta Sala - 2003 - Croatian Journal of Philosophy 3 (2):187-198.
    Among the main assumptions of the well-known principle-based method in bioethics, the ideal of consensus assumes central importance. Indeed, by proposing this method, Beauchamp and Childress offer a base for a practical agreement that can be reached starting from different moral perspectives: they defend the universality of the principles shared by the common-morality theories. The ideal of consensus based on the universal acceptability of the principles is criticized by a large number of authors, communitarians and feminists. They attack the notion (...)

    Nurses and Requests for Female Genital Mutilation: cultural rights versus human rights.Roberta Sala & Duilio Manara - 2001 - Nursing Ethics 8 (3):247-258.
    In this article we focus on female genital mutilation. We analyse this problem as one of the most important issues of multiculturalism, which is also coming to the attention of the public in Italy as a consequence of the growing number of immigrants from African countries. The fundamental problem is about the acceptability of this practice: can female genital mutilation be permitted and, if so, on what basis? We will try to cope with this as a genuine conflict between culture-relative (...)

    The Regulation of Autonomy in Nursing: the Italian situation.Roberta Sala & Duilio Manara - 1999 - Nursing Ethics 6 (6):451-467.
    We reflect upon the meaning of freedom and autonomy in nursing behaviour, attempting to outline the contemporary situation of nursing in Italy, where the profession is achieving important results after a long period of submission and subordination. The way to real emancipation is not easy, but a statement of law on the one hand - abolishing constraints such as the Mansionario - and professional self-regulation on the other - the recent new Deontological Code - represent a real conquest in that (...)
