    Las nuevas posibilidades abiertas por la investigación científica, especialmente en el campo de la genética, por un lado generan interrogantes morales hasta ahora desconocidos y, por otro, nos obligan a reformular de una manera totalmente nueva cuestiones y conceptos que hasta ahora funcionaban de forma adecuada. Así ocurre, por ejemplo, con las teorías de la justicia: estamos acostumbrados a que exista un acuerdo relativamente amplio en torno al concepto de persona, y la discusión se suele cent…Read more

    El futuro del liberalismo feminista
    Areté. Revista de Filosofía 13 (1): 59-101. 2001.
    Feminists have sometimes argued that philosophical theories of justice deriving from the liberal tradition cannot deal adequately with the concerns of women. I argue that in many ways this contention is mistaken: the best liberal theories of justice provide a very strong basis for thinking about what respect for human dignity requires. There are, however, two areas pertinent to sex equality in which even the strongest liberal theories have grave difficulty. First is the area of need and dependen…Read more

    I am extremely grateful to these three fine philosophers for spending time on my arguments and for the valuable questions they pose. I feel that I am very lucky to have commentators whose views and writings on this topic I admire, and with whose ideas I have engaged before with pleasure and profit.

    Review: Précis of "Upheavals of Thought" (review)
    Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 68 (2). 2004.
    Emotions shape the landscape of our mental and social lives. Like the “geological upheavals” a traveler might discover in a landscape where recently only a flat plane could be seen, they mark our lives as uneven, uncertain, and prone to reversal. Why and how? Is it because emotions are animal energies or impulses that have no connection with our thoughts, imaginings, and appraisals? In the passage from which my title is taken, Proust denies this, calling the emotions “geological upheavals of tho…Read more
