  3. Motivation, Agency, and Public Policy: Of Knights and Knaves, Pawns and Queens.Julian Le Grand - 2003 - Oxford University Press.

How should patients, parents and pupils behave - as grateful recipients or active consumers? The book provides new answers to these questions, and evaluates recent government policies in health services, education, social security and taxation, and puts forward proposals for policy reform: universal capital or 'demogrants', discriminating vouchers, matching grants for pensions and for long-term care and hypothecated taxes.

There is also a discussion of the roles that brain mechanisms (...)

By doing so, we learn something about how we actually reason concerning such life and death situations, as well as about how we ought to reason if we wish both (...)

    None of us can avoid being interested in food. Our very existence depends on the supply of safe, nutritious foods.

  20. Self Expressions: Mind, Morals, and the Meaning of Life.Owen Flanagan - 1996 - Oxford University Press.
    Human beings have the unique ability to consciously reflect on the nature of the self. But reflection has its costs. We can ask what the self is, but as David Hume pointed out, the self, once reflected upon, may be nowhere to be found. The favored view is that we are material beings living in the material world. But if so, a host of destabilizing questions surface. If persons are just a sophisticated sort of animal, then what sense is there (...)
  21. Perspectives on the Child's Theory of Mind.George Butterworth, Paul L. Harris & Alan M. Leslie - 1991 - Oxford University Press on Demand.
    We all have minds of our own. The fact that we all experience our own thoughts, ideas, and imaginings, and that other people can know about them only if we choose to tell them, is taken for granted by most of us. But young children, whose understanding of everyday mental states is quite different, do not necessarily jump to the same conclusion. This volume reports the latest research and theory on this classic and important topic -- vitally important, since all (...)

    Girls are now out-performing boys at GCSE level, giving rise to a debate in the media on boys' underachievement.

Can that sense, which is related to gratitude for existence, be expressed without religious concepts? Can we express central religious concerns, such as losing the self, while abandoning any religious metaphysic? Is moral obligation itself dependent on divine commands if it is to be objective, or is morality not only independent of religion, (...)
