" ... These ought ye to have done ..." : a commentary on the church in the world today. /

by Tucker, G. [Gerard] Kennedy | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. 1963Description: 8 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: "Man's extremity is God's opportunity." We are at the extremity of our resources to save ourselves and mankind. The Church has an opportunity as never before vouchsafed to her. Given the grace to follow to its logical conclusion the Gospel we preach, we would be enabled to give the world a new hope and a new vision and those outside the Church whom we fail to attract would learn to know that the Plan laid down for the salvation of mankind, here and hereafter is the only plan that really counts. The whole future of the world depends on those who are alive today and above all on those who profess and call themselves Christians. This could be our "finest hour", It could be a second Pentecost.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Moral responsibility and the boundaries of community : power and accountability from a pragmatic point of view /

by Smiley, Marion.

Publisher: Chicago, IL University of Chicago Press 1992Description: x, 286 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 273-284) and index.Summary: The question of responsibility plays a critical role not only in our attempts to resolve social and political problems, but in our very conceptions of what those problems are. Who, for example, is to blame for apartheid in South Africa? Is the South African government responsible? What about multinational corporations that do business there? Will uncovering the "true facts of the matter" lead us to the right answer? In an argument both compelling and provocative, Marion Smiley demonstrates how attributions of blame--far from being based on an objective process of factual discovery--are instead judgments that we ourselves make on the basis of our own political and social points of view. She argues that our conception of responsibility is a singularly modern one that locates the source of blameworthiness in an individual's free will. After exploring the flaws inherent in this conception, she shows how our judgments of blame evolve out of our configuration of social roles, our conception of communal boundaries, and the distribution of power upon which both are based. The great strength of Smiley's study lies in the way in which it brings together both rigorous philosophical analysis and an appreciation of the dynamics of social and political practice. By developing a pragmatic conception of moral responsibility, this work illustrates both how moral philosophy can enhance our understanding of social and political practices and why reflection on these practices is necessary to the reconstruction of our moral concepts. ; Contents: 1.
