Ethics and Selfhood (July 2003)
Alterity and the Phenomenology of Obligation
James R. Mensch - Author

Argues that a coherent theory of ethics requires an account of selfhood.

According to James R. Mensch, a minimal requirement for ethics is that of guarding against genocide.

He argues that the witnessing of irrepara...(Read More)
