  I   |  II  |  III 

Editor’s Introduction
“Women and men do not participate equally in crime. The disparity is so extreme, ancient, and immanent that it long ago should have garnered serious attention from philosophers for what it signals about the only two kinds of moral consciousness.” So […]

Law Enforcement
Them, too. The people who protect us: watch out for them. They are cut of the same cloth. Often enough it is firefighters who start fires and policemen who commit violent crimes.

Notes on:

Notes on:
Carole Pateman, “Defending Prostitution: Charges against Ericsson.”
[See also Ericsson on prostitution.]
561-2
Feminists do not see prostitution as unacceptable because it distributes benefits and burdens unequally; rather, to use Ericsson’s language of inequality, because prostitution is grounded in the inequality of domination and subjection. The problem of domination is both denied by and hidden behind Ericsson’s […]

Notes on:
Allan Janik, “From Logic to Animality or How Wittgenstein Used Otto Weininger”.

Weininger writes:
Nonetheless, every man evaluates somehow or other each of his traits, even each of his morally indifferent character traits…. The omen of this evaluation, I now believe, determines, even essentially decides, the tone of a person’s inner life. To be sure, it is only the man, not the woman, who has an inner […]
