Moral demands in nonideal theory by Liam B Murphy( )

26 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is there a limit to the legitimate demands of morality? In particular, is there a limit to people's responsibility to promote the well-being of others, either directly or via social institutions? Utilitarianism admits no such limit and is for that reason often said to be an unacceptably demanding moral and political view. In this original new study, Liam Murphy argues ingeniously that the charge of excessive demands turns out to be little more than an affirmation of the moral and political status quo"--Publisher's description
The myth of ownership : taxes and justice by Liam Murphy( Book )

36 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking as a guiding principle the conventional nature of private property, Murphy and Nagel show how taxes can only be evaluated as part of the overall system of property rights that they help to create. Justice or injustice in taxation, they argue, can only mean justice or injustice in the system of property rights and entitlements that result from a particular regime. Taking up ethical issues about individual liberty, interpersonal obligation, and both collective and personal responsibility, Murphy and Nagel force us to reconsider how our tax policy shapes our system of property rights.

What makes law : an introduction to the philosophy of law by Liam B Murphy( Book )

16 editions published in 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers an advanced introduction to central questions in legal philosophy. What factors determine the content of the law in force? What makes a normative system a legal system? How does law beyond the state differ from domestic law? What kind of moral force does law have? These are all questions about the nature of law. The most important existing views are introduced, but the aim is not to survey the existing literature. Rather, this book introduces the subject by stepping back from the fray to sketch the big picture, to show just what is at stake in these old debates. Legal philosophy has become somewhat arid and inward looking. In part this is because the disagreement between the main camps on the important questions is apparently intractable. The main aim of the book is to suggest both a diagnosis and a proper practical response to this situation of intractable disagreement about questions that do matter."
