  1. Why Blame the Organization? A Pragmatic Theory of Collective Moral Responsibility.Raymond S. Pfeiffer - 1995 - Littlefield Adams.
    Exploration of the fundamental motivations for attributing moral responsibility to various kinds of collectives serves as the basis for understanding the meaning of such attributions. Such attributions have a mid-range, limited justification. The analysis has broad implications for a wide variety of writings on aspects of collective moral responsibility, revealing serious deficiencies of any theory of corporate moral personhood.

    The Central Distinction in the Theory of Corporate Moral Personhood.Raymond S. Pfeiffer - 1990 - Journal of Business Ethics 9 (6):473-480.
    Peter French has argued that conglomerate collectivities such as business corporations are moral persons and that aggregate collectivities such as lynch mobs are not. Two arguments are advanced to show that French's claim is flawed. First, the distinction between aggregates and conglomerates is, at best, a distinction of degree, not kind. Moreover, some aggregates show evidence of moral personhood. Second, French's criterion for distinguishing aggregates and conglomerates is based on inadequate grounds. Application of the criterion to specific cases requires an (...)

    Owing Loyalty to One's Employer.Raymond S. Pfeiffer - 1992 - Journal of Business Ethics 11 (7):535 - 543.
    Neither employer expectations of loyalty, nor good treatment of employees by employers, nor employee appreciation of employers, nor the duty of nonmaleficence, nor the intention to be loyal, nor the duty not to act disloyally provide a basis for a moral or ethical duty of employee loyalty. However, in addition to the law, a pledge to be loyal can obligate one to be loyal. But if the specific content of such a pledge is unstated, the conduct required by the pledge (...)

    Abortion Policy and the Argument From Uncertainty.Raymond S. Pfeiffer - 1985 - Social Theory and Practice 11 (3):371-386.
    The Argument from Uncertainty in the abortion debate is the argument that because the moral status of the fetus is uncertain, abortion policies should afford it maximum protection in order to avoid doing very great evil. Three versions of the argument are developed, and each is based upon an unfounded assumption of a burden of proof in the abortion debate. Each is found to make an unwarranted assumption, or to beg the question, and each fails to provide reasonable support for (...)

    The Responsibility of Men for the Oppression of Women.Raymond S. Pfeiffer - 1985 - Journal of Applied Philosophy 2 (2):217-229.
    There can be little sense to claims that living men are responsible for the oppression of women in the past, or that men who have not oppressed women still bear responsibility for such oppression.

    Detecting Spirituality and Philosophizing About It.Raymond S. Pfeiffer - 2008 - Teaching Philosophy 31 (4):375-396.
    Often viewed as the deep common core of all religions, spirituality has been addressed in a direct philosophical manner only occasionally. After noting some recent philosophical literature, a questionnaire for evaluating a person’s spirituality is described, and a general theory of spirituality is advanced. Spirituality is, generally, the yearning for, quest for, experience of or belief in a great reality that is largely beyond ordinary experience and that inspires one’s interior, private life and one’s behavior and ultimate values. This idea (...)
