    Community, Complicity, and Critique: Christian Concepts in Secular Bioethics.Aline H. Kalbian, Courtney S. Campbell & James F. Childress - 2020 - American Journal of Bioethics 20 (12):37-39.
    McCarthy, Homan, and Rozier’s call for a renewal of open and honest dialogue between secular and theologically grounded bioethics is admirable. Yet, their essay argues for more than mere dia...

    Where Have All the Proportionalists Gone?Aline H. Kalbian - 2002 - Journal of Religious Ethics 30 (1):3 - 22.
    Interest in proportionalism as an important trend in Catholic moral theology seems to have faded in the recent decade. This has led some to view it as a movement that was somehow defeated. I suggest that proportionalism's influence can still be seen in contemporary Catholic ethics, most noticeably in the current interest in virtue ethics, casuistry, and feminist ethics. I argue that proportionalism encouraged a reappraisal of the methodology for evaluating moral action in a direction that was more hospitable to (...)

    Narrative Quests and Social Change.Aline H. Kalbian - 2014 - Journal of Religious Ethics 42 (1):146-155.
    In this response to Christian Smith's What Is a Person?, I raise questions about his conception of the human life as a narrative quest and his account of change in social structures and institutions. The metaphor of life as a quest suggests a solid, isolated, and integrated moral agent. I wonder whether the experiences of most moral agents render a different picture—one where life is fragmented and characterized by complex webs of relationships. Smith provides a detailed account of how social (...)

  6. Integrity in Catholic Sexual Ethics.Aline H. Kalbian - 2004 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 24 (2):55-69.
    TOTALITY AND COMPLEMENTARITY ARE PROMINENT TERMS IN CATHOLIC discussions of sexuality and gender. In this essay I explore these terms as they relate to the concept of integrity. I argue that although these terms were originally intended to describe the importance of physical integrity or wholeness, recent moves toward a more personalistic sexual ethic have rendered them problematic. More precisely, although these two terms appear to have integrity as their goal, uncertainty about the object of integrity results in fragmentation.

    The Catholic Church's Public Confession.Aline H. Kalbian - 2001 - The Annual of the Society of Christian Ethics 21:175-189.
    The Catholic Church, as part of the year 2000 Jubilee celebrations, issued a prayer of confession for sins committed in the past. Most notable was the confession for "actions that may have caused suffering to the people of Israel." In this paper I identify two prominent metaphors in the magisterial literature associated with this act of contrition—the metaphor of Church as mother, and the metaphor of repentance as purification of memory. I analyze these metaphors and place them in the context (...)
