    Parental Love and Procreation.Sam Shpall - forthcoming - Philosophical Quarterly.
    The main goal of this paper is to explore the forcefulness of the adoption challenge to procreative parenting. After framing the challenge, I consider two of the most developed attempts to respond to it, due to Luara Ferracioli and Elizabeth Brake. I argue that neither strategy is a promising way to vindicate the permissibility of procreative parenting. I then present several reasons to value procreative parenting that are underappreciated in the recent literature. Though these considerations deserve more philosophical attention, I’m (...)

    Female Freedom and The Neapolitan Novels.Sam Shpall - 2022 - Hypatia 37 (1):111-135.

Part 2 advances the interpretive argument by presenting a more detailed literary analysis of the character of Lila Cerullo. After motivating the interest of various aspects of her symbolization by connecting them to important motifs (...)

    Female Freedom and The Neapolitan Novels.Sam Shpall - forthcoming - Hypatia:1-26.
    This essay begins to develop a philosophical interpretation of Elena Ferrante's L'amica geniale, a work of fiction that is known in English as The Neapolitan Novels. My ultimate aim is to explore the work's ambitious moral psychology, and particularly its subtle conceptualization of women's path to freedom. I begin by reconstructing some of the main ideas of Italian difference feminism as they are expressed in the texts of the Milan Women's Bookstore Collective—texts that are controversial milestones of Italian social theory, (...)

    The Men of Talk to Her.Sam Shpall - 2013 - Film and Philosophy 17:96-112.
    Offers an interpretation of Pedro Almodovar's masterpiece, arguing that viewers often mistakenly ignore the obsessiveness of Marco - its seemingly more well-adjusted protagonist - and that an analysis of Marco's development is key to appreciating the film's construction.
