Review Of “Paradoxes: Their Roots, Range, And Resolution”, Karim Dharamsi Jun 2003

Review Of “Paradoxes: Their Roots, Range, And Resolution”, Karim Dharamsi

Essays in Philosophy

Professor Rescher has provided us with an interesting introduction to paradoxes. His scope is literally exhaustive; the writing is clear and the content has been made accessible to a wide audience. One can imagine this text replacing many introductory level texts in critical thinking courses; while at the same time many of Rescher’s conclusions warrant detailed scrutiny by honours or graduate level students interested in this subject. Indeed, the strength of the book is Rescher’s substantively original, even controversial, thesis and its application to paradoxes.

Do Unknown Risks Preclude Informed Consent?, David Rudge

Essays in Philosophy

Allen Buchanan and Daniel Brock, in a widely influential account, Deciding for Others (1990), advocate a sliding scale approach to the determination of whether a patient is competent to make a decision regarding his/her health care. An analysis of two critiques of their position (Beauchamp and Childress (1994), Wicclair (1991 a,b)) reveals a tacit presumption by all of these authors that the greater cognitive challenge often posed by high risk therapies constitutes grounds for an elevated standard of competence. This presumption cannot be consistently maintained in cases where the patient's decision involves experimental therapies. It implies either ...

Review Of “The Heart Of What Matters: The Role For Literature In Moral Philosophy”, Douglas Chismar Jun 2003

Review Of “The Heart Of What Matters: The Role For Literature In Moral Philosophy”, Douglas Chismar

Essays in Philosophy

Philosophers have long suspected that in good literature, there is something of value to be found for doing philosophy. Plato, for example, delights in quoting the poets, despite his reservations (at least, in the Republic) about their social influence. As we have, more recently, sought to energize our teaching methods by supplementing lecture and discussion with novels and short stories, as well as film, music, and poetry, we may struggle with lingering suspicions about this expenditure of valuable class time or worries about whether we are making the best use of these supplemental resources. More than tokening assent to the ...
