Book Summary:

After we fulfill our basic needs, why don't we turn to creativity or even just relaxation and comfort? And why do we see robots and AI as a threat to jobs rather than an opportunity for leisure and self-realization? Instead of seizing new opportunities, we are driven by our fears and anxieties to seek enhanced worth of person - to magnify if not improve our experience, raise the level of our regard in the eyes of others, and buffer ourselves against future exigencies. That misdirected striving for worth of person is a major force behind the destruction of our social cohesion and of the natural environment, as well as a cause of our disorientation in the face of modern technology. This work seeks to map the complexities of worth of person and how we might redirect our efforts toward deeper levels of worth and a greater ability to benefit from new technologies.

Book Summary:

The right to dignity is now recognized in most of the world's constitutions, and hardly a new constitution is adopted without it. Over the last sixty years, courts in Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and North America have developed a robust jurisprudence of dignity on subjects as diverse as health care, imprisonment, privacy, education, culture, the environment, sexuality, and death. As the range and growing number of cases about dignity attest, it is invoked and recognized by courts far more frequently than other constitutional guarantees. Dignity Rights is the first book to explore the constitutional law of dignity around the world. Erin Daly shows how dignity has come not only to define specific interests like the right to humane treatment or to earn a living wage, but also to protect the basic rights of a person to control his or her own life and to live in society with others. Daly argues that, through the right to dignity, courts are redefining what it means to be human in the modern world. As described by the courts, the scope of dignity rights marks the outer boundaries of state power, limiting state authority to meet the demands of human dignity. As a result, these cases force us to reexamine the relationship between the individual and the state and, in turn, contribute to a new and richer understanding of the role of the citizen in modern democracies.

Book Summary:

This book focuses on Kant’s analysis of three issues crucial for contemporary politics. Starting from a new reading of Kant’s account of our innate right to freedom, it highlights how a Kantian foundation of human rights, properly understood and modified where necessary, appears more promising than the foundational arguments currently offered by philosophers. It then compares Kant’s model for peace with the apparently similar model of democratic peace to show that the two are profoundly different in content and in quality. The book concludes in analysis of Kant’s controversial view of history to rescue it from the idea that his belief in progress is at best over-optimistic and at worst dogmatic. Congratulations to Professor Luigi Caranti and his book 'Kant's Political Legacy' which has been given a 'honorable mention' by the North American Kant Society in the competition for the best 2018 book on Kant!! http://northamericankantsociety.onefireplace.org/Announcements/6660588

Book Summary:

Contractarianism in some form has been at the center of recent debates in moral and political philosophy. Jean Hampton was one of the most gifted philosophers involved in these debates and provided both important criticisms of prominent contractarian theories plus powerful defenses and applications of the core ideas of contractarianism. In these essays, she brought her distinctive approach, animated by concern for the intrinsic worth of persons, to bear on topics such as guilt, punishment, self-respect, family relations, and the maintenance and justification of the state. Edited by Daniel Farnham, this collection is an essential contribution to understanding the problems and prospectus of contractarianism in moral, legal and political philosophy.

Book Summary:

This volume contains the unpublished writings of the late Joe Allmon, edited by his son, Warren. Joe Allmon grew up poor in Depression-era Mississippi, and became a Baptist minister like his father. But he suffered a crisis of faith as a young man, and switched careers to become a human resources executive, applying many of the counseling skills he had developed in the ministry. His life in corporate America, however, was unusual. As the writings collected here eloquently demonstrate, he was always in the process of becoming something else and expanding whatever mold he was in. Joe Allmon was a Baptist minister who became a Unitarian. He was a white southerner who became dedicated to equality of opportunity regardless of race. He was a corporate executive who unpretentiously quoted Shakespeare and the Bible, wrote poetry, and could read Greek and Hebrew. He was a Mississippian who had deep admiration for northeastern culture and Ivy-league education. He was a Republican devotee of laissez-faire who wound up proudly voting for liberal Democrats. His life was in a way dedicated constantly to struggle, to be smarter, more educated, more cultured, never poor again, and to leave the world a slightly better place. Although he spent almost 20 very influential years living in New York, Joe was rooted in the South. His strongest memories were always of Mississippi. He was shaped by the regions complex history and sometimes contradictory qualities: poverty, beauty, cruelty, grace, religion, gentility, ignorance, tradition, conservatism, and the struggle for a better life. His life spanned and contributed to a remarkable social and cultural transformation of this region. The writings in this volume are divided into three sections. First is a selection of the scores of sermons he delivered, from his time as a divinity student at Theological Seminary to his service as a Naval chaplain. The second includes speeches Joe gave from the 1950s to the 1980s. Most of these were given as part of his job as a human resources executive, but this included not just personnel matters (such as compensation, recruiting, and training), but also serving as a general spokesperson for the company to various public audiences. Toward the end of his career, Joe was not only invited to talk as a representative of the corporation, but also as a respected commentator on business-related topics in his own right. A number of the speeches are also connected to his not-for-profit involvements, including his association for 50+ years with Unitarian-Universalism. At the end of the volume is a short section that includes a short fragment of a novel, and the small number of poems and pieces of prose. In their emphasis on individual merit and effort combined with equal opportunity and an intellectual approach to human resources, the business speeches are valuable for their own sake. What holds them together with the rest is that they all focus on a limited set of themes -- the worth of the individual (regardless of race or background), the value of work, and the power of the mind. Joe Allmon strongly believed in these three things, and he applied them to almost everything he did from his paying job to his volunteer work to his family life. The worth of the individual. For Joe, every person was inherently important and worthy of respect and being listened to, no matter what their background or point of view. He loved to talk to people, and he loved to listen. He loved to hear peoples stories, where they were coming from, why they thought what they did. He loved conversation, and the learning that he said always resulted. He thought that everyone had something interesting to say, and that you could always learn something from talking to someone, no matter who they were. The value of work. Like many of his generation, which grew up in the Great Depression, Joe knew the importance of hard work. Although his family was not among the poorest of the poor, th

Book Summary:

The advances in molecular biology and genetics, medicine and neurosciences, in ethology and environmental studies have put the concept of the person firmly on the philosophical agenda. Whereas earlier times seemed to have a clear understanding about the moral implications of personhood and its boundaries, today there is little consensus on such matters. Whether a patient in the last stages of Alzheimer's disease is still a person, or whether a human embryo is already a person are highly contentious issues. This book tackles the issue of personhood and its moral implications head-on. The thirteen essays are representative of the major strands in the current bioethical debate and offer new insights into humanity's moral standing, its foundations, and its implications for social interaction. While most of the essays approach the issue by drawing on the rich intellectual tradition of the West, others offer a cross-cultural perspective and make available for ethical consideration the philosophical resources and the wisdom of the East. The contributors to this book are highly recognized philosophers, ethicists, theologians, and professionals in health care and medicine from East Asia (China, Japan), Europe, and North America. The first part of the book probes the foundations of personhood. Examining critically the main theories on personhood in contemporary philosophy, the authors offer alternatives that better respond to contemporary challenges and their implications for bioethics. The focus of the second part is firmly on the Confucian relational concept of the person and on the social constitution of personhood in traditional Japanese culture. While the essays challenge the individualistic features of personhood in the Western tradition, they lay the foundations for a richer concept that holds great promise for the resolution of moral dilemmas in modern medicine and health care. The third part of the book enters into a dialogue with the Christian tradition and draws on its spiritual heritage in the search for answers to the contemporary challenges to human dignity and value. Its focus is on the Catholic social thought and Lutheran theology. The fourth part addresses the moral status of persons in view of specific issues such as the effects of brain injury, gene therapy, and human cloning on personhood. It extends the scope of research beyond human beings and inquires also into the moral status of animals.

Book Summary:

Thomas Hill, a leading figure in the recent development of Kantian moral philosophy, presents a series of essays that interpret and develop Kant's ideas on ethics. The first part of the book focuses on basic concepts: a priori method, a good will, categorical imperatives, autonomy, and constructivist strategies of argument. Hill goes on to consider aspects of human welfare, and then moral worth—the nature and grounds of moral assessment of persons as deserving esteem or blame. He offers illuminating discussions of happiness, beneficence, personal values, conscience, moral desert, moral dilemmas, and feelings of regret. He is critical of Kant at many points, but he shows how many familiar objections miss the mark. Two previously unpublished essays challenge the views of other influential Kant scholars and defend alternative interpretations of Kant on beneficence, supererogation, and what it means to 'set oneself an end'. These clear and careful writings show moral, poltical, and social philosophers just how valuable Kantian ethical theory can be in addressing practical matters.
