    Understanding Peace: A Comprehensive Introduction.Michael Allen Fox - 2013 - Routledge.
    Understanding Peace: A Comprehensive Introduction fills the need for an original, contemporary examination of peace that is challenging, informative, and empowering. This well-researched, fully documented, and highly accessible textbook moves beyond fixation on war to highlight the human capacity for nonviolent cooperation in everyday life and in conflict situations. After deconstructing numerous ideas about war and explaining its heavy costs to humans, animals, and the environment, discussion turns to evidence for the existence of peaceful societies. Further topics include the role (...)

  3. Deep Vegetarianism.Michael Allen Fox - 1999 - Philadelphia: Temple University Press.
    Challenging the basic assumptions of a meat-eating society, Deep Vegetarianism is a spirited and compelling defense of a vegetarian lifestyle. Considering all of the major arguments both for and against vegetarianism and the habits of meat-eaters, vegetarians, and vegans alike, Michael Allen Fox addresses vegetarianism's cultural, historical, and philosophical background; details vegetarianism's impact on one's living and thinking; and relates vegetarianism to classical and recent defenses of the moral status of animals. Demonstrating how a vegetarian diet is related to our (...)

  6. Why We Should Be Vegetarians.Michael Allen Fox - 2006 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 20 (2):295-310.
    The food we choose to eat tells a good deal about who we are and how we stand in relation to nonhuman animals and nature as a whole. Though most people are concerned about the state of the world and about their own health, they tend not to reflect very much, if at all, on what results from their dietary choices, and therefore see nothing wrong in eating meat. I question this attitude. Specifically, I argue that, for the same reasons (...)

    “Boundless Compassion”: The Contemporary Relevance of Schopenhauer's Ethics.Michael Allen Fox - 2006 - The European Legacy 11 (4):369-387.
    Schopenhauer had important things to say about ethics in both normative and meta-ethical senses, but his impact on the evolution of moral theory has been minimized by the unfortunate neglect of his philosophy in general. A contemporary assessment of his ethical views reveals that they are both imaginative and interesting, not least because they challenge assumptions held by more canonical figures in the history of philosophy, both before and after his time. Since the roots of ethics are currently being vigorously (...)

    Cetaecean Culture: Philosophical Implications.Michael Allen Fox - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (2):333-334.
    Culture among cetaeceans has important philosophical implications. Three receive attention here. First, these animals are more like humans than we had previously thought. Even so, we must affirm and respect their otherness. Second, only a fresh approach to research makes this kind of information available. Third, whales and dolphins should now be included with us in an extended moral community.

    The Ideology of Meat-Eating.Michael Allen Fox - 2018 - The Harvard Review of Philosophy 25:37-49.
    A network of beliefs and values underlies much of our behavior. While meat-eaters may not acknowledge that they have an ideology, I argue that they do by attempting to identify and deconstruct its elements. I also include numerous historical and philosophical observations about the origins of meat-eaters’ ideology. Explaining and examining ideologies may encourage discussion about a particular area of life and stimulate change in relation to it. Both adherents to vegetarian/vegan approaches and meat-eaters who wish to become less dependent (...)

    Willing and Unwilling: A Study In the Philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer.Michael Allen Fox - 1992 - Idealistic Studies 22 (3):243-244.
    Seldom does one encounter a truly fresh and profound interpretation of a prominent past philosopher. Julian Young’s book on Schopenhauer is an exception of this kind. Schopenhauer has been unjustifiably and mysteriously neglected and underrated by contemporary philosophers in the English-speaking world. While it is consequently somewhat easier to break now ground in a study of his work than that of other philosophers of comparable status, the fact should not detract from Young’s achievement. For not only is Willing and Unwilling (...)

    Nuclear Weapons and the Ultimate Environmental Crisis.Michael Allen Fox - 1987 - Environmental Ethics 9 (2):159-179.
    Current philosophical debate on the anns race and on the use of nuclear weapons tends to focus on the rationality and morality of deterrence. I argue, however, that in view of recent scientific findings concerning the possibility of nuclear winter following upon nuclear war, or of some lesser but still massive consequences for nature, the perspective of environmental ethics is one from which nuclear war and preparations for it ought to be examined and condemned. Adopting a “weak anthropocentric” position of (...)
