Moral literacy by Barbara Herman( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Jacket
Reclaiming the history of ethics : essays for John Rawls by Andrews Reath( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 488 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
Scent and subversion : decoding a century of provocative perfume by Barbara Herman( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Let Scent and Subversion take you for a whiff on the wild side of 20th century perfume. Perfume has been -- and continues to be -- subversive. By playing with gender conventions, highlighting the ripe smells of the human body, or celebrating queer and louche identities, 20th-century perfume broke free from the assumptions of the prior century, and became a largely unrecognized part of the social and style revolutions of the modern era. In Scent and Subversion : Decoding a Century of Provocative Perfume, Barbara Herman continues her irreverent, poetic, and often humorous analysis of vintage perfumes and perfume ads that she began on her popular blog YesterdaysPerfume.com. The book features descriptions of over 300 perfumes, starting with Fougere Royale (1882) and ending with Demeter's Laundromat (2000). Lavishly illustrated with over 100 vintage perfume ads, it will also regale you with essays on scent appreciation, a glossary of important perfume terms and ingredients, and tips on how to begin your own foray into vintage and contemporary perfume. Herman also looks to the future through interviews with scent visionaries such as odor expert and 'professional provocateur' Sissel Tolaas, punk perfumer Antoine Lie, and Martynka Wawrzyniak, the artist behind 'Smell Me, ' the world's first olfactory self-portrait. The perfect book for perfume aficionados (aka 'perfumistas') as well as connoisseurs of modern fashion and design, feminist and LGBTQ historians, and fans of vintage advertising"--
Morality as rationality : a study of Kant's ethics by Barbara Herman( Book )

14 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1990. The aim of this thesis is to show that the way to understand the central claims of Kant's ethics is to accept the idea that morality is a distinctive form of rationality; that the moral "ought" belongs to a system of imperatives based in practical reason; and that moral judgment, therefore, is a species of rational assessment of agents' actions. It argues, in effect, that you cannot understand Kant's views about morality if you read him with Humean assumptions about rationality. This title will be of interest to students of philosophy

Treating Cognitively Impulsive Children Using Academic Materials and Peer Models by Barbara Herman( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effectiveness of a peer-modeling treatment in the modification of impulsive cognitive style and in the improvement of academic performance in the areas of reading, spelling and arithmetic is investigated in this study. In four single case experiments, eight fifth grade children identified by the Matching Families Figures Test Form 20 (mff20) as cognitively impulsive received treatment via subject-nominated reflective peers using Meichenbaum's (1977) cognitive behavior modification strategies. Each experiment employed materials, differing in content (Matrices and Mazes, Reading, Spelling, and Arithmetic), and incorporating a response-uncertainty format. Comparisons of subjects' pre- and post-performances on the mff20 and quizzes in reading, spelling and arithmetic suggest that training with academically relevant materials yields improved academic performance and change in subjects' impulsive/reflective status.

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
