  • An Enquiry on the Origins of Injustice in Legal Systems
    Dissertation, The Catholic University of America. 1995.
    The Aristotelian notions of "natural justice" and epieikeia are neglected, and even incomprehensible in much of contemporary jurisprudence and legal practice. This neglect, and any associated imbalance between legal justice and natural justice are, it is argued, at the root of many legal injustices.

  • Ethics in Linguistic Space and the Challenge of Morality
    Dissertation, University of Virginia. 2000.
    For Kant and his followers, pure reason can be practical, and its substantive practical command is, broadly speaking, that we treat ourselves and others as worthy of respect as free and equal. If those who have defended the Kantian morality system are correct, this moral imperative will not be authoritative and inescapable simply because we don't know how to coherently reweave our practical commitments so as to leave it out, but because it is presupposed by the possibility of practical reason. O…Read more
