    A Just Society.Michael Boylan - 2004 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    A Just Society represents a complete account of Boylan's original worldview theory of ethics and social philosophy. In the book Boylan sets out the foundation and application of the personal worldview imperative and the shared community worldview imperative . These form the structure for a rights-based deontological theory. Throughout, the book employs narrative devices and contemporary examples that make a contribution to ethical and political theory as well as grounding an original approach to public philosophy.

    The Galenic and Hippocratic Challenges to Aristotle's Conception Theory.Michael Boylan - 1984 - Journal of the History of Biology 17 (1):83-112.
    As a result of this case study, additional questions arise. These can be cast into at least three groups. The first concerns the development of critical empiricism in the ancient world: a topic of much interest in our own century, expecially with regard to the work of the logical empiricists. Many of the same arguments are present in the ancient world and were hotly debated from the Hippocratic writers through and beyond Galen. Some of the ways in which Galen reacts (...)

    What Fictive Narrative Philosophy Can Tell Us: Stories, Cases, and Thought Experiments.Michael Boylan - 2013 - Revista de Humanidades de Valparaíso 2:61-68.
    Este ensayo discutirá algunos de los modos en que la narrativa trabaja para promover la filosofía, llamada filosofía narrativa de ficción. La estrategia es discutir las maneras en que trabaja el discurso directo e indirecto y mostrar por qué el discurso indirecto llena un vacío importante que el discurso directo no puede satisfacer. En el curso de este examen, serán analizados diferentes filósofos de la narrativa ficcional como Platon, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Sartre, Murdoch, Johnson, y Camus. Ellos utilizan el discurso indirecto (...)

  18. Gewirth: Critical Essays on Action, Rationality, and Community.Michael Boylan (ed.) - 1998 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    As one of the most important ethicists to emerge since the Second World War, Alan Gewirth continues to influence philosophical debates concerning morality. In this ground-breaking book, Gewirth's neo-Kantianism, and the communitarian problems discussed, form a dialogue on the foundation of moral theory. Themes of agent-centered constraints, the formal structure of theories, and the relationship between freedom and duty are examined along with such new perspectives as feminism, the Stoics, and Sartre. Gewirth offers a picture of the philosopher's theory and (...)

    Ethical Profiling.Michael Boylan - 2011 - The Journal of Ethics 15 (1-2):131 - 145.
    This essay will argue for ethical procedures governing criminal profiling. A model based upon psychological/behavioral data, witness data, and forensic profiling data is sketched out. This model fits the legitimate uses of criminal profiling as an investigation procedure. Racial profiling as a primary sorting factor does not fit the preferred model and has significant downsides and so is rejected as a primary sorting mechanism in criminal investigation procedure.

One vision is of genetic testing being carried out by medical technicians and then, as a result of this analysis, patients will be given a diagnosis of what is wrong with them. Next, they will be given a list of courses of action based on the tests. Once the list is presented to the patient, then she will choose her treatment. Then a clinician will (...)

    Medical Pharmaceuticals and Distributive Justice.Michael Boylan - 2008 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 17 (1):30-44.
    There are deep structural conflicts between the mission of healthcare as cooperative care to the sick and injured and that of healthcare as a business whose mission is maximizing profits. These conflicts come to the fore in the medical pharmaceutical industry. I first set these out in a context that addresses the mission of healthcare, then examine the relative roles of competitive and cooperative systems of distributive justice, and then argue for the creation of nonprofit pharmaceutical companies and the transformation (...)
