    Beyond the Fence: A Farmed Animal Rights Manifesto for Film.Stephen Marcus Finn - 2022 - Journal of Animal Ethics 12 (1):63-75.
    Film has not always been kind to farmed animals, maltreatment ranging from horrendous cruelty to anthropomorphization and training under duress. Admittedly, many fine documentaries have been made on maltreatment, but many of these tend to see farmed animals as a mass, with deindividuation leading to a psychic numbing in those watching. In contrast, narrative films on this theme generally have the farmed animal protagonists as human-like in being able to converse in the language of the people around them and generally (...)

    Geometry and the Science of Morality in Hobbes.Stephen Finn - 2001 - Social Philosophy Today 17:57-66.
    In the central chapters of Leviathan, Hobbes offers a demonstration of the "true doctrine of the laws of nature," which is identified with the "science of virtue andvice" and the "true moral philosophy." In his deduction of the laws of nature, Hobbes attempts to mimic the science of geometry, which he says is the "only science God had hitherto bestowed on mankind. "In this paper, I discuss some of the problems associated with Hobbes's application of the method of geometry to (...)

    Using Psychology Experiments in Introductory Philosophy Courses.Stephen Finn - 2013 - Teaching Philosophy 36 (2):125-135.
    In this paper, I describe a variety of psychology experiments that may be used in introductory philosophy courses not only to grab students’ attention, but also to generate philosophical discussion or to make a philosophical point. The experiments attempt to capture students’ interest in two ways: (1) by posing interesting challenges to students, thereby provoking more active thought in class and (2) by doing something different, thereby increasing attention that naturally follows from change. Although the experiments are psychology experiments, they (...)

    Truth Without Reconciliation? The Question of Guilt and Forgiveness in Simon Wiesenthal's "The Sunflower" and Bernhard Schlink's "The Reader".Stephen M. Finn - 2001 - South African Journal of Philosophy 20 (3-4):309-320.
    Guilt and forgiveness, with their attendant philosophical and religious ramifications, permeate writing on the Holocaust and can also be related to South Africa\'s recent history and present situation. Two controversial and provocative books which tackle the question of guilt and forgiveness head on are Simon Wiesenthal\'s The Sunflower and Bernhard Schlink\'s The Reader, both of which have led to much debate. The central event in both texts is the slaughter of innocents, burned to death in a building during World War (...)
