Review Of Edward G. Ballard, Man And Technology. Toward The Measurement Of A Culture And Of Donald M. Borchert And David Stewart, Eds., Being Human In A Technological Age, Albert Borgmann Jan 1982

Review Of Edward G. Ballard, Man And Technology. Toward The Measurement Of A Culture And Of Donald M. Borchert And David Stewart, Eds., Being Human In A Technological Age, Albert Borgmann

Philosophy Faculty Publications

The two books under review pursue separately what an appropriate philosophy of technology must accomplish: the articulation of an incisive and unified vision of the world on the one hand and on the other the consideration of the variety of ways in which technology shapes our lives and the search for fruitful counterforces to technology. Ballard's book attends to the first task, Borchert's and Stewart's anthology to the second. The two books also demonstrate that one task taken up without the other cannot be accomplished satisfactorily.

When Two Wrongs Make A Right, Leo Groarke Jan 1982

When Two Wrongs Make A Right, Leo Groarke

Philosophy Publications

CONTEMPORARY TREATMENTS OF INFORMAL FALLACIES TAKE TWO WRONGS REASONING AS A FORM OF FALLACIOUS INFERENCE. I ARGUE THAT SUCH INFERENCES ARE OFTEN VALID AND THAT AN ADEQUATE TREATMENT OF TWO WRONGS ARGUMENTS MUST DISTINGUISH VALID AND INVALID ARGUMENTS, RATHER THAN REJECT THEM OUT OF HAND.

Unnecessary Suffering: Definition And Evidence, Frank Hurnik, Hugh Lehman Jan 1982

Unnecessary Suffering: Definition And Evidence, Frank Hurnik, Hugh Lehman

ATTITUDES TOWARD ANIMALS

Although it is possible to formulate stronger moral principles than "animals should not be made to suffer unnecessarily," there are significant grounds for doubting these stronger principles. But the principle that underlies the dictum regarding unnecessary suffering is generally recognized as valid, since denial of it implies that we can do whatever we want with animals, a conclusion that is usually considered unacceptable. A determination of whether any particular instance of suffering is necessary or unnecessary must be based on an analysis of both the seriousness of the purpose of the act that involves pain in animals, and its relative ...

Harm, Utility, And The Obligation To Obey The Law, Richard Dagger Jan 1982

Harm, Utility, And The Obligation To Obey The Law, Richard Dagger

Political Science Faculty Publications

In a recent essay, "Political Obligation", R. M. Hare sets out a utilitarian account of the obligation to obey the law which he believes to be immune to an objection often brought against such accounts. In what follows I shall briefly review this objection and Professor Hare's response to it; than I shall go on to argue that Hare's response, ingenious as it is, fails to defeat the objection. Hare's argument is instructive nonetheless, for its failure tells us something about wrongs and harm as well as utility and political obligation.

Are There Mental Inferences In Direct Perceptions?, Dan D. Crawford Jan 1982

Are There Mental Inferences In Direct Perceptions?, Dan D. Crawford

Faculty Publications - Department of Philosophy

While there is virtually a consensus among contemporary philosophers of perception that some form of direct realism is true, there is less than complete agreement about whether normal, direct perceptions involve mental inferences in any sense. In taking another look at this recurrent question, my aim is twofold: first, to examine some of the arguments and evidences that have been offered in favor of inferences and to see if they can be accommodated within the direct realist framework, and second, to attempt to clarify and defend the insight of direct realism that normal perceptions are noninferential.

Human Inspirations As The Connecting Links Of History: Demonstration Through Contrasts Of Imaginative Literature And Historical Record, Glenn W. Sunderland Jan 1982

Human Inspirations As The Connecting Links Of History: Demonstration Through Contrasts Of Imaginative Literature And Historical Record, Glenn W. Sunderland

Masters Theses

This thesis seeks to resolve three propositions. The first concerns the continuity of history. It maintains that the continuity of history is ensured by certain universals, or abstract human traits, pertaining to the history of civilization, and that particulars, or in this case, human inspirations, provide the connecting links that bind together those segments of history involving people, places, things, and events.

Secondly, it contends that all historical events result from the actions of people, and that no matter how large or small the event, each individual involved makes a purposeful historical contribution to it.

The third purpose demonstrates that ...


Understanding Judicial Discretion, Barry Hoffmaster Dec 1981

Understanding Judicial Discretion, Barry Hoffmaster

C. Barry Hoffmaster

The main aim of this paper is to clarify the dispute over judicial discretion by distinguishing the different senses in which claims about judicial discretion can be understood and by examining the arguments for these various interpretations. Three different levels of dispute need to be recognized. The first concerns whether judges actually do exercise discretion, the second involves whether judges are entitled to exercise discretion, and the third is about the proper institutional role of judges. In this context, the views of Dworkin, Raz, Perry, Greenawalt, and Sartorius are examined. Finally, it is suggested that a resolution of the judicial ...
