Maciej Juzaszek: new article in Revus

If someone denied the existence of resultant moral luck, s/he would probably argue that the no-fault compensation system is fairer than a standard account of tort liability. Agents are not responsible for the consequences and harms they cause but only for the risks they create. David Enoch recently argued that such an approach lacks personal liability taken on by agents. I believe that Enoch’s position is incoherent and taking responsibility is irrelevant for tort liability.

Tomasz Żuradzki and Karolina Wiśniowska: new publication in The American Journal of Bioethics

In this paper, we use an innovative, empirical, and–as yet–rarely applied method in bioethics, namely corpus analysis. By demonstrating the ambiguity of the concept of dignity discernible when analyzing its use in normative contexts, our work is a novel contribution to the debates among the historians of ideas about conceptual identity and conceptual drift.
