    The Actor Does Not Judge: Hannah Arendt’s Theory of Judgement.Shmuel Lederman - 2016 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 42 (7):727-741.
    Hannah Arendt’s conceptualization of political judgement has been a source of much scholarly investigation and debate in recent decades. Underlying the debate is the assumption that at least in her early writings, Arendt had an actor’s theory of judgement. In this article I challenge this common assumption. As I attempt to demonstrate, it relies on a misunderstanding, not only of Arendt’s conception of judgement, but also of her conception of agents in the public realm. Once we discard the assumption of (...)

    Making the Desert Bloom: Hannah Arendt and Zionist Discourse.Shmuel Lederman - 2016 - The European Legacy 21 (4):393-407.
    This article discusses an aspect of Hannah Arendt’s treatment of the conflict between the Zionists and the Palestinians that has thus far been overlooked in scholarship: her justification of Zionism through the achievements of the Jewish pioneers in cultivating the land, in contrast to the Palestinians’ failure to do so. The inability of natives to cultivate their land was a familiar argument in the history of colonialism, used to legitimize the colonialists’ right to settle a land and often to displace (...)

    The Land of No Milk and No Honey: Force Feeding in Israel.Zohar Lederman & Shmuel Lederman - 2017 - Monash Bioethics Review 34 (3-4):158-188.
    In 2015, the Israeli Knesset passed the force-feeding act that permits the director of the Israeli prison authority to appeal to the district court with a request to force-feed a prisoner against his expressed will. A recent position paper by top Israeli clinicians and bioethicists, published in Hebrew, advocates for force-feeding by medical professionals and presents several arguments that this would be appropriate. Here, we first posit three interrelated questions: 1. Do prisoners have a right to hunger-strike? 2. Should governing (...)

    Is Israel Its Brother’s Keeper? Responsibility and Solidarity in the Israeli–Palestinian Conflict.Zohar Lederman, Emily Shepp & Shmuel Lederman - 2018 - Public Health Ethics 11 (1):103-120.
    This article examines the Israeli government’s role in supporting living conditions conducive to health in the occupied Palestinian territories. Limiting the discussion to public health, the authors argue that—whether justified in its overall political policy—the Israeli government and people are legally and ethically obligated to care for the well-being of the Palestinian people. The authors first review the current situation in the OPT and compare health statistics with Israel. Next, the authors make three arguments as to why the Israeli government (...)

    Parting Ways Too Soon: Arendt Contra Butler on Zionism.Shmuel Lederman - 2020 - The European Legacy 25 (3):248-265.
    In this article, I discuss the way Judith Butler builds on Hannah Arendt’s political thought for her critique of Zionism. While her critique is valuable in many ways, I argue that it also obscures...
