Through this approach, judges attempt to provide specific interpretation that simply address the case and issue at hand. Judges who implement judicial minimalism often rule in a “narrow and shallow” manner as noted by Professor Cass Sunstein.

Why have wars been waged over instances of injustice. Why are the two usually thought of as being separate.

- Does Anything Break Because it is Fragile. ABSTRACT: I maintain that dispositions are not causally relevant to their manifestations.

I conclude that Lewis’ attempt to vindicate the causal credentials of dispositions meets obstacles that are analogous to (though importantly different from) those that beset Donald Davidson’s attempt to accord a causal role to the mental....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophers Essays]

Most of these are native to the Indo-Pacific region and it was concluded that unknowing aquarium owners were to blame.

A Critique of Judith Thomson’s A Defense of Abortion

- In A Defense of Abortion (Cahn and Markie), Judith Thomson presents an argument that abortion can be morally permissible even if the fetus is considered to be a person. Her primary reason for presenting an argument of this nature is that the abortion argument at the time had effectively come to a standstill. The typical anti-abortion argument was based on the idea that a fetus is a person and since killing a person is wrong, abortion is wrong. The pro-abortion adopts the opposite view: namely, that a fetus is not a person and is thus not entitled to the rights of people and so killing it couldn’t possibly be wrong....   [tags: Aborrtion]
