Karolina Wiśniowska's article in "Analiza i Egzystencja"

Abstract: Female genital mutilation includes procedures which remove or cause injury to some or all women’s external genital organs. There are a lot of medical risks involved - nevertheless, in some societies it is mainstream practice, carried out mostly on girls younger then fifteen years of age. In this paper, it is considered if it would be acceptable to make compromise in the case of female genital mutilation in the form of so-called Seattle compromise.

The experimental philosophy lab: a new publication in Motivation and Emotion

One might assume that the desire to help (here described as Want) is the essential driver of helping declarations and/or behaviors. However, even if desire to help (Want) is low, intention to help may still occur if the expectancy regarding the perceived effectiveness of helping is high. We tested these predictions in a set of three experimental studies.

Leszek Wroński's article in Synthese

I claim that objective consequentialism (OC) faces a problem stemming from the existence in some situations of a plurality of chances relevant to the outcomes of an agent’s acts. I suggest that this phenomenon bears structural resemblance to the well-known Reference Class problem. I outline a few ways in which one could attempt to deal with the issue, suggesting that it is the higher-level chance that should be employed by OC.

Joanna K. Malinowska and Tomasz Żuradzki in AJOB Neuroscience

What constitutes bias?; how biases may be embedded in the selection of research programs?; is it possible to conduct completely unbiased research? Joanna K. Malinowska and Tomasz Żuradzki try to notice possible answers to these questions in their commentary "Non-Epistemological Values in Collaborative Research in Neuroscience: The Case of Alleged Differences Between Human Populations".

Discussion: Normative status of high-risk medical services

Discussion: Normative status of high-risk medical services

Various medical services carry a high risk for people subject to such services. However, in a situation such as current Covid-19 pandemic, providing necessary services to an infected person may be associated with high risk for those who provide for that person. To determine the normative status of medical services associated with this type of risk, we need to answer several questions. We invite you to read and join the discussion on this topic.

Intensive care in crisis conditions

Intensive care in crisis conditions

From reports on the course of the COVID-19 pandemic in various countries, especially Italy and Spain, we find out about desperate doctors who - in the absence of sufficient number of respirators - were forced to decide which of the suffocating patients would be given a chance to be saved. It seems that in such difficult decisions, doctors should not be abandoned - left without any normative support, relying only on an individual "conscience". We invite you to read the discussion on this topic.
