      Wringe, B. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2010)

    • Global obligations, collective capacities, and ‘ought implies can’ 

      Wringe, Bill (Springer, 2020)
      It is sometimes argued that non-agent collectives, including what one might call the ‘global collective’ consisting of the world’s population taken as a whole, cannot be the bearers of non-distributive moral obligations ...
    • Gratitude, self-Interest, and love 

      Berkovski, Y. S. (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2014)

      Kovacs, D. M. (Springer Netherlands, 2017)

      Aranyosi, I. (Springer Netherlands, 2009)

    • A hobbesian theory of shame 

      Berkovski, Y. S. (University of Memphis, 2015)
      On most accounts present in the literature, the complex experience of shame has the injury to self-esteem as its main component. A major objection to this idea is that it fails to differentiate between shame and disappointment ...

      Baker, D.; Woods, J. (University of Chicago Press, 2015)

      Wigley, S.; Akkoyunlu Wigley, A. (Cambridge University Press, 2011-09-22)

      Vinx, L. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
      This paper argues that the strong conception of popular sovereignty employed in the German Federal Constitutional Court's recent decision on the Treaty of Lisbon is incoherent and should not be used as the centerpiece of ...
    • The information effect: constructive memory, testimony, and epistemic luck 

      Michaelian, K. (2013)
