Setting the Moral Compass by Cheshire Calhoun

Book Description

Setting the Moral Compass brings together the (largely unpublished) work of nineteen women moral philosophers whose powerful and innovative work has contributed to the "re-setting of the compass" of moral philosophy over the past two decades. The contributors, who include many of the top names in this field, tackle several wide-ranging projects: they develop ethics for ordinary life and vulnerable persons; they examine the question of what we ought to do for each other; they highlight the moral significance of inhabiting a shared social world; they reveal the complexities of moral negotiations; and finally they show us the place of emotion in moral life.

Moral Aims by Cheshire Calhoun Moral Aims, Hardback (December 2015)

Moral Aims brings together nine previously published essays that focus on the significance of the social practice of morality for what we say as moral theorists, the plurality of moral aims that agents are trying to realize and that sometimes come into tension, and the special difficulties that conventionalized wrongdoing poses.

What is an Emotion? by Cheshire Calhoun What is an Emotion?, Paperback (January 2003)

Draws together important selections from classical and contemporary theories and debates about emotion from a variety of subject areas.

Feminism, the Family and the Politics of the Closet by Cheshire Calhoun Feminism, the Family and the Politics of the Closet, Paperback (September 2002)

In this volume, Calhoun argues that lesbians and gays aren't just socially and politically disadvantaged. The closet displaces lesbians and gays from visible citizenship, and both law and cultural norms deny lesbians and gay men a private sphere of romance, marriage, and the family.
