About this Item: GRIN Publishing, Germany, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. Auflage.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Essay from the year 2006 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Freiburg, course: Henry James in Transition, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Many of the critics writing about The Spoils of Poynton belong to one of two groups: Either they take Fleda to be the heroine of the story in the traditional sense [.] or they have taken her to be neurotic and self-deceiving, pathologically fearful of sex, and contributing more harm than balm to the domestic row between the Gereths (Lodge. Introduction: 5). Both ways of interpretation actually imply that Fleda is indeed the free spirit James intended. This view is particularly clear in the wikipedia article which states that Fleda Vetch has earned most critics sympathy for steering the right course through an almost impossible situation (Wikipedia). The talk of a right course , however, reveals the author s belief that Fleda has a choice. In the following, I want to argue that the exact opposite is the case. Fleda s actions are not based on moral considerations but rather on existential necessities. Her freedom is therefore restricted to the realm of her imagination; all other decisions are dictated by the expectations of society. This is also the one unifying force to which all characters are subject and due to his own disillusionment with existing English society (Lyons. Social Vision: 64), James uses the comedy and irony in The Spoils of Poynton as a vessel to convey his social criticism. Seller Inventory # AAV9783638923170

About this Item: Naval War College, Newport, Rhode Island, 1991. Paperback. First edition. "Making effective use of published sources, Harmon concludes that bombing Germany would have been less troubling after the war had British political and military elites ceased doing it as soon as their superior power permitted. This is perhaps much easier to judge in hindsight. The author shows that Churchill, far from glorying in the bombing campaign, had deep regrets over it and several times questioned its necessity." Bound in wire-stitched silver wraps printed in blue. Condition is fine, the wraps bright, complete and firmly attached, the contents bright with no previous ownership marks or spotting.

About this Item: Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2008. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 228 Pages. As medical technology advances and severely injured or ill people can be kept alive and functioning long beyond what was previously medically possible, the debate surrounding the ethics of end-of-life care and quality-of-life issues has grown more urgent. In this lucid and vigorous book, Craig Paterson discusses assisted suicide and euthanasia from a fully fledged but non-dogmatic secular natural law perspective. He rehabilitates and revitalises the natural law approach to moral reasoning by developing a pluralistic account of just why we are required by practical rationality to respect and not violate key demands generated by the primary goods of persons, especially human life. Important issues that shape the moral quality of an action are explained and analysed: intention/foresight; action/omission; action/consequences; killing/letting die; innocence/non-innocence; person/non-person. Paterson defends the central normative proposition that ?it is always a serious moral wrong to intentionally kill an innocent human person, whether self or another, notwithstanding any further appeal to consequences or motive? Contents: Introduction; Justifications for suicide, assisted suicide and euthanasia; A revised natural law ethics; The good of human life; Suicide, assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia; Non-voluntary and involuntary euthanasia; State intervention and the common good; Conclusion; Bibliography; Index. Book Description: As medical technology advances and severely injured or ill people can be kept alive and functioning long beyond what was previously medically possible, the debate surrounding the ethics of end-of-life care and quality-of-life issues has grown more urgent.In this lucid and vigorous new book, Craig Paterson discusses assisted suicide and euthanasia from a fully fledged but non-dogmatic secular natural law perspective. He rehabilitates and revitalises the natural law approach to moral reasoning by developing a pluralistic account of just why we are required by practical rationality to respect and not violate key demands generated by the primary goods of persons, especially human life.Important issues that shape the moral quality of an action are explained and analysed: intention/foresight; action/omission; action/consequences; killing/letting die; innocence/non-innocence; and, person/non-person. Paterson defends the central normative proposition that 'it is always a serious moral wrong to intentionally kill an innocent human person, whether self or another, notwithstanding any further appeal to consequences or motive'. : Review: 'At a time when the issues of euthanasia and assisted suicide are before legislators and the courts, and when public debate is dominated by religious advocates and anti-religious secularists, it is particularly welcome to have a careful and well constructed presentation of a purely philosophical defence of the idea that it is always wrong to intentionally kill an innocent person as a means to an end, even an otherwise benign one. Craig Paterson sets out an account of moral reasoning that is of broad interest and shows how it can be applied in cases relating to the end of life. A very clear, useful and timely contribution.' John Haldane, University of St Andrews, UK 'There are few more significant contemporary public policy debates than the debate about whether voluntary euthanasia and/or physician-assisted suicide should be decriminalised. Sadly, much of the literature amounts to little more than an emotional polemic in favour of decriminalisation; there are relatively few books which advance a philosophical case against decriminalisation. This is one of the few. Building on the recent renaissance of natural law theory, the book advances a serious, secular natural law argument against decriminalisation. Not all its arguments will attract universal assent (even from natural law theorists) but the book is, nevertheless, a welcome contribution to the debate.' John Keown, Rose.
