"A distinguished moral philosopher and a leading interpreter of Kant's ethics, Barbara Herman draws on Kantian resources to address central issues in ethical theory as well as challenges posed by current moral problems, such as our obligations to the distant needy, the bearing of history on ideas of reparative justice, and the moral challenges posed by circumstances of political transition. Resisting various Kantian orthodoxies, Herman offers a view of moral competency as a complex achievement, governed by rational norms and dependent on supportive social conditions. She argues that the objectivity of duties and obligations does not rule out the possibility of or need for moral invention."--BOOK JACKET
Reclaiming the history of ethics : essays for John Rawls ( Book )
15 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The essays in this volume offer an approach to the history of moral and political philosophy that takes its inspiration from John Rawls. All the contributors are philosophers who have studied with Rawls and they offer this collection in his honor. The distinctive feature of this approach is to address substantive normative questions in moral and political philosophy through an analysis of the texts and theories of major figures in the history of the subject: Aristotle, Hobbes, Hume, Rousseau, Kant, and Marx. By reconstructing the core of these theories in a way that is informed by contemporary theoretical and practical concerns, the contributors show how the history of the subject is a resource for understanding present and perennial problems in moral and political philosophy. This collection will be of particular interest to moral and political philosophers, political theorists, historians of philosophy, and historians of ideas

The moral side of non-negligence by Barbara Herman ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Legal discussions of negligence focus on issues of harm, fault, and remedy in the context of failure to exercise reasonable care. The point of orientation is the negligent event. In this talk I want to investigate a related moral duty, the duty of due care. Its orientation is ex ante; it is an imperfect duty that ranges across private and public morality; its content is not restricted to injury and loss. The wrongful failure of due care need not increase the risk of a negligent event. An agent acting negligently in the moral sense has failed to take on the full burden of some other duty. The argument for this view of due care will lend support to three more general theses: about the nature and importance of imperfect duties, about the primacy of non-negligence, and about the rationale for different schemes of remedy on the legal side."--Law School webpage for the lecture
