    Sammanfattning : In this dissertation, I argue for what I call “practical perspective compatibilism”.

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation attempts to deepen our understanding of teachers’ work and professionality, which involves not only their reasoning about what to teach and how to teach it, but also of what it is that makes education possible. This is accomplished by exploring a highly influential, if underestimated and under-researched, dimension of teacher practice and professionality: the relational dimension, involving the establishment and maintenance of educational relationships with and among students.

    Sammanfattning : The main aim of this thesis is to defend moral realism. In chapter 1, I argue that moral realism is best understood as the view that (1) moral sentences have truth-value (cognitivism), (2) there are moral properties that make some moral sentences true (success-theory), and (3) moral properties are not reducible to non-moral properties (non-reductionism).

  4. 4. What is Wrong with Extinction? - The Answer from Anthropocentric Instrumentalism

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University

    Författare :Erik Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; moral philosophy; Ethics; biodiversity; extinction; environmental ethics;

    Sammanfattning : The book contains the first part of an investigation aimed at finding out why it is morally wrong (at least prima facie) to cause species to go extinct. That it is morally wrong seems to be a very basic and widely held intuition. It seems reasonable that a moral theory worth taking seriously ought to be able to account for that intuition. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Workplace Ethics Some practical and foundational problems

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Anders J Persson; KTH.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANITIES and RELIGION History and philosophy subjects Philosophy subjects; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Historisk-filosofiska ämnen Filosofiämnen; Philosophy; Ethics; contract of employment; ethics; ethical criteria; health and safety standards; Philosophy; Filosofi;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of the present thesis is twofold: first, to analyse some practical ethical problems that stem from the workplace and the working environment and to offer guidelines concerning how such problems can be solved; second, to illuminate how the specific nature of work and the working environment is intimately connected to the relation between the employee and the employing entity, as set forth in an employment contract, and how the form and content of such contracts are, among other things, determined by culturally and socially established ideas. The normative question to be addressed is thus: which of these ideas should be maintained? This can be seen as a second-order, or more fundamental, ethical question whose answer depends on determining which normative principles are right. LÄS MER
