Abstract

Handlungen, mit denen wir mehr Gutes tun, als unsere Pflicht ist, heißen in der Ethik supererogatorisch. Die Autorin steckt einen Rahmen für Theorien der Supererogation ab. In jenem Rahmen dokumentiert sie die Geschichte dieses Begriffes und würdigt aktuelle Theorien - um deren Beschränkungen zu überwinden. Auch wenn wir über das Gebotene hinausgehen, so ihre These, können wir fehlen; wir können uns neue Pflichten einhandeln.

Abstract

Sharing without Reckoning is the first full-scale treatment of the ancient and persistent distinction between ""perfect"" and ""imperfect"" rights and duties. It examines the use of the distinction in jurisprudential, philosophical and religious material from Classical times until the present; proposes a connection between imperfect right and the ""norms of reciprocity"" (as that complex set of ideas has been developed in anthropology and sociology); and argues that contemporary understanding of the nature of morality and of moral reasoning would be well served by the reintroduction

Abstract

"In order to create a truly meaningful life, we must first accept that the problem is never other people. "The real problem," Sam Silverstein maintains, "is what we believe about other people." Silverstein's new book shows why everything we have been taught about accountability is wrong. Contrary to popular belief, accountability is not a way of doing. Accountability is a way of thinking. It is how we think about ourselves and others. And it is the highest form of leadership. The secret to creating accountable relationships, and elevating the personal benchmark that Silverstein calls the The Accountability Index, lies in making ten critical choices that support an accountable mindset. I Am Accountable offers a comprehensive plan to help you establish and leverage that mindset, deepen commitments, create lasting meaning in your life and relationships, transform the culture within your organization, and foster positive change in the larger community"--

Abstract

Un individu en sauve plusieurs autres, inconnus de lui, au péril de sa vie, dans des circonstances difficiles, alors qu'il n'était tenu par aucune mission ou aucune fonction de le faire. Pour l'opinion commune, voilà qui est héroïque. Objets de fascination, les personnes moralement " héroïques " ou " saintes " sont nommées ainsi parce qu'elles ont accompli des actes exceptionnels, au-delà de tout devoir moral, des actes " surérogatoires ". Mais peut-on vraiment aller au-delà de l'obligation morale? Interrogé sur son acte, notre héros dit simplement: " Je n'ai fait que mon devoir. " Formule d'humilité, peut-être. Pourtant ne dirait-il pas la vérité? On a peut-être trop vite fait de donner des limites au devoir, comme un prétexte pour ne pas agir, en bien des circonstances. Cependant si le devoir est sans limite, l'exigence morale ne sera-t-elle pas excessive, insupportable? Les philosophes se disputent sur ce sujet. Il y a là une zone trouble de l'éthique, dont ce livre explore les paradoxes, en étudiant les débats contemporains sur les limites du devoir, et leurs répercussions sur notre vie éthique la plus ordinaire.

Abstract

Are there strong positive obligations? We obviously consider it a strong obligation to save a drowning child. The first part of this work investigates the factors that define the strength of such an obligation to help and how this is to be differentiated from actions that transcend obligation and from charitable obligations. The second part examines the question whether this case can be transposed to our relationship with those suffering from poverty and cites morally relevant factors that differentiate the cases.
