    Patenting Genes: A Fast and Furious Primer.Andrew Askland - 2003 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 17 (2):267-275.
    Patents have been issued in the United States for genes and gene sequences since 1980. Patent protection has provided incentives to aggressively probe the genome of humans and non-humans alike in search of profitable applications. Yet it is not clear that patent protection should have been afforded to genes and gene sequences and it is increasingly clear that patent protection, as currently formulated, is not an appropriate means to realize the full benefits of genetic research. As we stand on the (...)

    Climate Change: Making Us Brothers and Sisters.Andrew Askland - 2014 - Journal of Global Ethics 10 (3):292-296.
    The constraint for prevailing ethical orientations is the unavoidable concern each person has for her own welfare. Climate change can transform the fundamental structure of these ethical orientations because it compels the recognition that the behaviors of those at the far reaches of my concentric circle model have real and potentially disastrous effects upon me. The tangible prospect of climate change will inspire the recognition of our common destiny.

    Living in an economically developed country means being blessed and burdened with unprecedented access to information. We struggle to absorb and evaluate a cacophonic flow of information and are largely overwhelmed. Because that flow is unlikely to ebb, we are challenged to devise strategies to differentiate and manage the information. Yet we do not have the reliably stable world views that guided our ancestors and have not forged successor views that provide reliable criteria by which to evaluate the information thrust (...)

    The Sen of Inequality.Andrew Askland - 1998 - Journal of Philosophical Research 23:399-415.
    This paper summarizes and critiques Amartya Sen’s use of functionings and capabilities to evaluate inequality and poverty. He judges that “things” and “means” to acquire things are inadequate measurements of poverty. His approach keys upon the functionings that can be performed by the poor and the capability sets that are available to them from which they can choose. Sen’s strategy proposes to enlarge these sets and provide improved functionings within them. Although this approach is preferable to a bare income or (...)
