  3. Human Dignity as a Right.Shaoping Gan - 2009 - Frontiers of Philosophy in China 4 (3):370-384.
    The concept of human dignity and the relationship between dignity and human rights have been important subjects in contemporary international academia. This article first analyzes the different understandings of the concept of dignity, which has left great influences in history (including the “theory of attribution-dignity”, the “theory of autonomy-dignity” or the “theory of moral completeness/achievement-dignity”, and the “theory of end-in-itself-dignity”); it then exposes the obvious defects of these modes of understanding; finally, it tries to define dignity as a moral right (...)

    The Destiny of Modern Virtue Ethics.Shaoping Gan - 2010 - Frontiers of Philosophy in China 5 (3):432-448.
    The revival of Aristotelian virtue ethics since the 1980s does not signify that it goes back to its original form; rather, it is generally manifested in three different variations: The first is a variation of what is known as communitarianism, the second is universalism, and the third is phronesis. On the social level of morality, the serious attempt of modern virtue ethics towards improving the moral spirit of society is laudable. However, its method and reasoning deviates greatly from the demands (...)

    The Impact of Public Scrutiny on Corporate Philanthropy.Ailian Gan - 2006 - Journal of Business Ethics 69 (3):217-236.
    This paper proposes that a corporation’s vulnerability to public scrutiny drives its corporate giving. The hypothesis that companies donate for strategic motives is tested against the alternative that they do so for altruistic reasons. Court cases and news articles were selected as proxies for public scrutiny. Macroeconomic variables were used to gauge the level of public charitable need and test for altruism. Through examining the philanthropic behavior of 40 Fortune 500 companies over 7 years, this paper finds that companies are (...)

    Atlas Stumbled : Kinesin Light Chain-1 Variant E Triggers a Vicious Cycle of Axonal Transport Disruption and Amyloid-Β Generation in Alzheimer's Disease.Kathlyn J. Gan, Takashi Morihara & Michael A. Silverman - 2015 - Bioessays 37 (2):131-141.
    Substantial evidence implicates fast axonal transport (FAT) defects in neurodegeneration. In Alzheimer's disease (AD), it is controversial whether transport defects cause or arise from amyloid‐β (Aβ)‐induced toxicity. Using a novel, unbiased genetic screen, Morihara et al. identified kinesin light chain‐1 splice variant E (KLC1vE) as a modifier of Aβ accumulation. Here, we propose three mechanisms to explain this causal role. First, KLC1vE reduces APP transport, leading to Aβ accumulation. Second, reduced transport of APP by KLC1vE triggers an ER stress response (...)

    Unethical Peer Behavior and Employee Performance: A Moderated Mediation Model of Deontic Justice and Ethical Climate.Chenjing Gan, Linbo Yang, Weixiao Guo & Duanxu Wang - 2020 - Ethics and Behavior 30 (3):197-212.
    This study proposes a moderated mediation model based on deontic justice theory to investigate the impact of unethical peer behavior on employee performance. Data were collected in China through two survey studies, with two measurement points in each study. The data in study 1 were obtained from 271 employees of 17 firms, and the data in study 2 were collected from 225 employees of 9 firms. Confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to confirm the factorial validity of the measures employed in (...)

    2008 Revision of the Chinese Code of Ethical Use of Psychological Tests and Its Implementation Status.Yiqun Gan, Ran Meng, Haiping Chen & Hongsheng Che - 2012 - Ethics and Behavior 22 (1):30 - 41.
    In response to the rapidly increasing application and abuse of psychological tests in China, the Psychometrics Division of the Chinese Psychological Society published the 2008 revisions of the Chinese Code of Ethical Use of Psychological Tests. We investigated the implementation status of the code 2½ years after its promulgation. Sample included 284 psychological professionals and psychology graduate students. The average accuracy rate for the appropriate use of psychological tests was 67.1% (range = 25.5?97.5%), with 10 items having accuracy rates below (...)

    Hope and Death, Self and Other.Peter Gan - forthcoming - Sophia:1-16.
    Inherent in the self–other dynamic structure are the mechanisms to reduce the other to the self, to surrender the self to the other, to place an insurmountable wedge between them, and to effect a harmonious, mutually beneficent relationship. In this paper, I explore the varied self–other relations between the self in hope, confronting the prospect of its death as other. I also endeavour to unravel a possible eclipse of the above self–other patterns, which can serve as an indication of the (...)

    DeepFusion: Fusing User-Generated Content and Item Raw Content Towards Personalized Product Recommendation.Mingxin Gan & Hang Zhang - 2020 - Complexity 2020:1-12.
    Personalized recommender systems, as effective approaches for alleviating information overload, have received substantial attention in the last decade. Learning effective latent factors plays the most important role in recommendation methods. Several recent works extracted latent factors from user-generated content such as ratings and reviews and suffered from the sparsity problem and the unbalanced distribution problem. To tackle these problems, we enrich the latent representations by incorporating user-generated content and item raw content. Deep neural networks have emerged as very appealing in (...)

    How Much Does Basic Income Cost? Modelling Basic Income as Universal Life Annuity.Wee Chung Gan - 2019 - Basic Income Studies 14 (2).
    The cost of basic income is typically estimated for a particular year. However, to assess the financial feasibility of basic income, it is also important to consider how much basic income will cost in the future. This is especially important in countries experiencing an ageing population, where the proportion of workers is expected to shrink. This article considers basic income as a universal life annuity and develops two models based on actuarial concepts to estimate the flat tax rate required to (...)

    Towards Perpetual Peace.Barry L. Gan - 1992 - Idealistic Studies 22 (3):244-245.
    The title of this book, Towards Perpetual Peace, invites comparison with the writings of Kant, and there is no doubt that the author intended such comparisons. Like Kant, Banerjee considers the possibility of reconciling two apparently irreconcilable claims about human being’s circumstances. Like Kant, Banerjee develops prescriptions for human behavior that take the form of general imperatives. Like Kant, Banerjee reveals a far-ranging familiarity with earlier thinkers from many fields. But unfortunately, there are other resemblances. Banerjee, like Kant, could have (...)

    Permeability Prediction of Iron Tailings Including Degree of Compaction and Structure.Deqing Gan, Xi Yang & Yunpeng Zhang - 2019 - Complexity 2019:1-13.
    The stability of iron tailings dam is affected by the permeability of tailings. Considering the influence of it, it is necessary to analyze the permeability of tailings so as to prevent the recurrence of Brazilian iron tailings dam accidents. Nevertheless, the results of iron tailings permeability from some prediction equations cannot be accurate. Iron tailings are various as they can be divided into three categories: silt content is less than 40%; silt content is more than 40%, while clay content is (...)

    The Politically Pluralistic Conception of Human Rights.Zhen-Rong Gan - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 11:33-39.
    This paper is a sketch of the politically pluralistic conception of human rights. The conception will be illustrated by a basic characteristic of human rights under the constraint of the fact in the political. It is pluralistic because it is compatible with different moral values and cultures with qualification. It is also political because it considers political actions in practice and it does not follow from any moral doctrine which may be more generally or intrinsically related to human rights. I (...)

    Remembering Gene Sharp.Barry Gan - 2017 - The Acorn 17 (2):95-97.
    Gene Sharp passed away on January 28, 2018, two days before the anniversary of the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. His influence in the field of nonviolence has been immense, and much of the work in nonviolence that has been done in the last forty years has had to address Sharp’s work. The direction in which Sharp took the field of nonviolence differed from that of Gandhi. Gandhi based his life around a metaphysics and an ethic that, for him, dictated his (...)

    A qualitative study was conducted with 48 Chinese counselors and psychotherapists who were interviewed in 2006 and an independent sample of 50 participants who responded to a survey in 2014. This study aims to explore how the new emerging expansion of mental health practice is related to issues and challenges of dual role relationship and how the well-engrained values and social characteristics of Chinese culture influences perceptions and resolution of ethical dilemmas. The participants identified similar dual relationships in 2006 and (...)

    The Political Pluralistic Conception of Human Right.Zhen-Rong Gan - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 11:149-154.
    There is a discrepancy between human rights theories and the contemporarily international human rights practice. The discrepancy is not only generated by theexpectable distance between the ideal and the real world, but also generated by the consequence which the orthodox conception of human rights theories cannot proper account for the role of human rights in the contemporarily international relations. Furthermore, the orthodox conception cannot be compatible with political pluralism; for it often justify the ground of human rights with human dignity (...)
