    Sledging in Sport—Playful Banter, or Mean-Spirited Insults? A Study of Sledging’s Place in Play.Samuel Duncan - 2018 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 13 (2):183-197.
    Sledging, or ‘trash talk’ or ‘chirping’, as it’s known in other parts of the world, has long been part of competitive sport. However, more recent times have seen the issue of sledging, and its place in sport, debated with many athletes, fans and academics arguing that sledging has moved outside the notion of ‘sportsmanship’ and gone beyond light hearted, good natured banter. They argue it is now characterized as hurtful, insulting, offensive and intimidating – a tactic that has moved beyond (...)

    Why Police Shouldn't Be Allowed to Lie to Suspects.Samuel Duncan - forthcoming - Journal of the American Philosophical Association:1-16.
    In this essay, I argue that it is morally wrong for police to lie to suspects in interrogations and that it should be legally prohibited. I base my argument on broadly Kantian considerations about respect for autonomy: Respect for rational agency forbids lying to suspects and there is no plausible and compelling rationale for allowing police to lie to suspects in typical cases of interrogation.

    Hegel on Rectitude and “Virtue as Such”.Samuel Duncan - 2015 - Southern Journal of Philosophy 53 (4):405-426.
    Many philosophers read Hegel as rejecting Kant's ethics of duty and advocating a more or less Aristotelian conception of virtue. However, in the Philosophy of Right Hegel sharply criticizes the ancient conception of virtue, or “virtue proper,” in his terms, and distinguishes it from a more modern concept of virtue, which he calls “rectitude.” In this paper I argue that interpretations that overlook or downplay the significance of the distinction between rectitude and virtue proper are wrong, and I also put (...)

  7. The Nature of the Emotions and the Ethics of Cosmetic Psychopharmacology.Samuel Duncan - 2016 - Public Affairs Quarterly 30 (1).
    Most of the literature on the ethics of psychopharmacology has focused on the question of whether altering our emotions by using drugs is somehow inauthentic. In this essay I argue that this focus on authenticity is misplaced and that the more important question concerns the nature of the emotions themselves. I show that what one takes the emotions to be is possibly the most important factor in deciding whether or not psychopharmacology is morally problematic and, if so, why. I illustrate (...)

    “There is None Righteous”: Kant on the Hang Zum Bösen and the Universal Evil of Humanity.Samuel Duncan - 2011 - Southern Journal of Philosophy 49 (2):137-163.
    This paper offers a new interpretation of the propensity to evil and its relation to Kant's claim that the human race is universally evil. Unlike most of its competitors, the interpretation presented here neither trivializes Kant's claims about the universal evil of humanity nor attributes a position to him that is incompatible with his repeated insistence that we are blameworthy for actions only when we could have acted differently. This interpretation also accounts for a number of otherwise bewildering claims in (...)

    Hegel on Private Property: A Contextual Reading.Samuel Duncan - 2017 - Southern Journal of Philosophy 55 (3):263-284.
    Hegel is often read as defending private property and property rights on the basis of the so-called “developmental thesis,” which holds that the institution of private property is a necessary condition for individuals to develop the basic capabilities required for free choice. In this paper, I challenge the developmental thesis, and present my own interpretation of Hegel's justification of private property and theory of property rights. Reconstructing Hegel's theory requires that we read the Philosophy of Right as a whole and (...)

    Interpreting Huizinga Through Bourdieu: A New Lens for Understanding the Commodification of the Play Element in Society and Its Effects on Genuine Community.Samuel Keith Duncan - 2016 - Cosmos and History 12 (1):37-66.
    This article explores the transformation of play in the sport field by combining Johan Huizinga’s historical observations of play with Pierre Bourdieu’s concepts of field, capital and habitus, using Australian football in the AFL as a case study. By developing this theory, this analysis provides a means of understating how the economic and media fields have transformed play, which has ultimately weakened the community. Furthermore, by interpreting Huizinga’s observations using Bourdieu’s concepts, I have provided Huizinga’s observations with a theoretical framework (...)
