    Immanuel Kant's Moral Theory.Roger J. Sullivan - 1989 - Cambridge University Press.
    This book, sure to become a standard reference work, is a comprehensive, lucid, and systematic commentary on Kant's practical philosophy. Kant is arguably the most important moral philosopher of the modern period. Using as nontechnical a language as possible, Professor Sullivan offers a detailed, authoritative account of Kant's moral philosophy - including his ethical theory, his philosophy of history, his political philosophy, his philosophy of religion, and his philosophy of education - and demonstrates the historical, Kantian origins of such important (...)

  2. An Introduction to Kant's Ethics.Roger J. Sullivan - 1994 - Cambridge University Press.
    This is the most up-to-date, brief and accessible introduction to Kant's ethics available. It approaches the moral theory via the political philosophy, thus allowing the reader to appreciate why Kant argued that the legal structure for any civil society must have a moral basis. This approach also explains why Kant thought that our basic moral norms should serve as laws of conduct for everyone. The volume includes a detailed commentary on Foundations of the Metaphysics of Morals, Kant's most widely studied (...)

    The Kantian Critique of Aristotle’s Moral Philosophy: An Appraisal.Roger J. Sullivan - 1974 - Review of Metaphysics 28 (1):24 - 53.
    I will conclude that the Kantian analyses of Aristotle’s moral theory are historically inaccurate and the criticisms invalid. Further, those criticisms are focused in such a way that they tend to distract us from more fundamental issues, especially the different ontologies presupposed in each theory. If my arguments are sound, they show that much of Kant’s moral philosophy is not as novel as he believed it to be nor as it generally has been taken to be.

    How Bernard Williams Constructed His Critique of Kant's Moral Theory.Roger J. Sullivan - 1999 - Kantian Review 3:106-113.
    One of the more striking developments in contemporary philosophic discussions about morality has been the rise of anti-theory — the rejection of moral theories as ‘unnecessary, undesirable, and/or impossible’. Among those associated with this view have been Bernard Williams, John McDowell, Edmund Pincoffs and James Wallace.

    Natural Selection and Schizophrenia.Roger J. Sullivan & John S. Allen - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (6):865-866.
    Evolutionary theories of schizophrenia must account for the maintenance of putative alleles in past and present populations despite reduced fitness among the affected. Such models must also account for extant intersex and population-level variability in the expression of schizophrenia. We argue that genetic balanced-polymorphism hypotheses remain the most robust in terms of modeling and testing these processes in populations.

    The Kantian Model of Moral-Practical Reason.Roger J. Sullivan - 1983 - The Monist 66 (1):83-105.
    In this essay I will examine several features of the dominant contemporary view about the nature and functions of practical reason, a view finding its most natural home in deontological theories within the Kantian tradition.

    Aristotle on the Human Good.Roger J. Sullivan - 1990 - Review of Metaphysics 43 (4):872-873.
    Some twenty years ago, W. F. R. Hardie focused his attention on an issue which has since become a programmatic theme for Aristotelian scholars. He wrote: "In speaking of the good for man Aristotle hesitates between an inclusive and an exclusive formulation. [He further fails] to make explicit the distinction between the comprehensive plan and the paramount end". Since that time, virtually everyone writing on Aristotle's ethics has essayed a view about what Aristotle said or should have said about the (...)

    Making and Thinking: A Study of Intelligent Activities.Roger J. Sullivan - 1984 - Review of Metaphysics 37 (3):635-637.
    The title of this book indicates its main theme, that "the most central concept" in an analysis of intelligent activity is that of making. The author begins by asking, "what in general we might mean by the 'process' of making if we consider it as a form of intelligible activity," and proceeds both by analyzing the grammar of claims about making things and by inviting us to look more closely at the activity of making.

    But is It Evolution…?Roger J. Sullivan & Edward H. Hagen - 2011 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (6):322-323.
    We applaud Müller & Schumann (M&S) for bringing needed attention to the problem of motivation for common non-addictive drug use, as opposed to the usual focus on exotic drugs and addiction. Unfortunately, their target article has many underdeveloped and sometimes contradictory ideas. Here, we will focus on three key issues.

We also question whether a key experimental condition, anonymity, can be maintained in the small, cohesive, social groupings employed in the study.
