Rejo živali za zakol (in znanstvene raziskave) se pogosto opravičuje s ti. argumentom iz polne kašče (APK): če jih ne bi redili za zakol (in raziskave), rejne (in laboratorijske) živali sploh obstajale ne bi; obstoj, čeravno kratek in vse prej kot idealen, pa je zanje vseeno neprimerno boljši od neobstoja; tudi če bi bila torej njihova predčasna sm...

The article examines the so-called slippery slope argument (SSA) against the legalization of active voluntary euthanasia (AVE). According to the SSA, by legalizing AVE, the least morally controversial type of euthanasia, we will take the first step onto a slippery slope and inevitably end up in the moral abyss of widespread abuse and violations of...

Bivanjski brezup, stiska oz. tesnoba je lahko psihološki pojav s psihološko anamnezo, ni pa vedno in zgolj to. Vsaj včasih se zdi, da imamo za obupavanje ne le nad svojim življenjem, temveč tudi nad usodo, ki neizogibno čaka prav vsakega izmed nas, objektivno dobre, tehtne in prepričljive razloge. Bivanjski nihilizem in brezup je, skratka, pogosto...

Rojstvo (prosto dostopnega) interneta so spremljala visoka pričakovanja. O globalizaciji komunikacije in demokratizaciji znanja se je govorilo ob njegovih prvih korakih, pa o globalnem in enakopravnejšem dostopu do informacij, zgodb in kulturnih dobrin, in dvigu kvalitete odnosov med ljudmi. Internet smo slavili kot orodje za emancipacijo zatiranih...

Strokovne in laične razprave o morebitni uzakonitvi evtanazije so tako pri nas kot v tujini že v izhodišču žolčne in čustveno pregrete, dodatno pa jih obremenjujejo še številni nesporazumi, zgrešena pojmovanja, zmotne predstave, izkrivljanja dejstev in celo zavestne manipulacije s podatki. V pričujočem prispevku identificiram in po vrsti razblinim...
Article
Full-text available
The relationship of science to ethics has always been one of complexity. For the purpose of this article, I emphasize two features: the exponential growth in the number of cases of reported scientific misconduct, and the recent preoccupation of leading scientific institutions with ethical regulations. The focus has thereby been squarely on the so-c...

Prof. Miščević has long been an ardent defender of the use of thought experiments in philosophy, foremost metaphysics, epistemology and philosophy of mind. Recently he has, in his typically sophisticated manner, extended his general account of philosophical thought-experimenting to the domain of normative politics. Not only can the history of polit...

Article
Full-text available
In the paper, I try to cast some doubt on traditional attempts to defi ne, or explicate, moral responsibility in terms of deserved praise and blame. Desert-based accounts of moral responsibility, though no doubt more faithful to our ordinary notion of moral responsibility, tend to run into trouble in the face of challenges posed by a deterministic...

V pričujočem članku se lotevam uganke o smislu življenja. Moj namen je dvojen: po eni strani demistificirati vprašanje o smislu življenja, po drugi pa potolažiti vse, ki morda nad življenjem obupujejo, da je smisel v načelu dosegljiv vsakomur od nas. V zvezi s prvim dokazujem, da je uganka o smislu življenja le na videz zapletena, v resnici pa jo j...
Article
Full-text available
The paper focuses on the conditions under which an agent can be justifiably held responsible or liable for the harmful consequences of his or her actions. Kant has famously argued that as long as the agent fulfills his or her moral duty, he or she cannot be blamed for any potential harm that might result from his or her action, no matter how forese...
Article
Full-text available
In his insightful and stimulating book Morality Without Foundations: A Defense of Ethical Contextualism, Mark Timmons presents a strong case for embracing contextualism as a vibrant alternative to the two rival accounts that used to dominate moral epistemology in the past, foundationalism and coherentism. His sophisticated version of contextualist...
Article
Full-text available
That we are morally responsible for what we do willingly and knowingly is a commonplace. That our moral responsibility extends as far as to cover at least the intended consequences of our voluntary actions and perhaps also the ones we did not intend, but could or did foresee, is equally beyond dispute. But what about omissions? Are we, or can we be...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Extensive discussions about the nature and value of personhood, of metaphysical and normative aspects of becoming a person and ceasing to be one, having been conducted at the very center of the debates on abortion, therapeutic human cloning, embryo experimentation, and so on, for decades have proven notoriously difficult and their insights disappoi...
Article
Full-text available
Kant has famously argued that human beings or persons, in virtue of their capacity for rational and autonomous choice and agency, possess dignity, which is an intrinsic, final, unconditional , inviolable, incomparable and irreplaceable value. This value, wherever found, commands respect and imposes rather strict moral constraints on our deliberatio...
