    The Erosion of Legal Principles in the Creation of Legal Policies.Virginia Black - 1974 - Ethics 84 (2):93-115.

When these policies reflect economic interests, A feudal-Like form of economic determinism begins to close in. This in turn breeds inequalities, Frustrated expectations, Political favoritism and authoritarianism. Further, The 'success' of such policies in terms of visible changes in the social order cannot in principle be known. The paper demonstrates these social (...)

    The Methodology of Confirming the Effectiveness of Public Policy.Virginia Black - 1972 - The Monist 56 (1):116-139.
    Many modern societies are committed to harmonizing their laws and public policies with their deeply felt moral values. To succeed in this accomplishment is to employ methods that move rationally from fundamental values to the policy incarnations that the society installs and maintains. This paper is an examination into what this method ought to be if policies are to instantiate agreed-upon fundamental moral commitments rather than the arbitrary whims of tyranny and anarchism or the political expedience of compromise.

    Abstract By over?stressing legal analogies in ethical theory, I believe we have neglected aspects of morality that tie it closely to the development of personal responsiblity. When this relationship is realized, discrepancies sometimes claimed between self?interest and the social good dissolve. This paper defends an approach to moral education based on using responsibility as a causal means to greater autonomy or personal freedom. By holding people unconditionally or ?ascriptively? responsible, eliminating all excusing conditions, the kind of responsibility logically entailed by (...)
