Inclinations : a critique of rectitude
Cavarero, Adriana, author
Stanford, California : Stanford University Press, [2016]
Barnett Newman : Adam's line -- Kant and the newborn -- Virginia Woolf and the shadow of the "I" -- Plato erectus sed... -- Men and trees -- We are not monkeys : on erect posture -- Hobbes and the macroanthropos -- Elias Canetti : upright before the dead -- Artemisia : the allegory of Inclination -- Leonardo and maternal inclination -- Hannah Arendt : "a child has been born unto us" -- Schemata for a postural ethics -- Coda : adieu to Lévinas.

In this new and accessible book, Italy's best known feminist philosopher examines the moral and political significance of vertical posture in order to rethink subjectivity in terms of inclination. Contesting the classical figure of homo erectus or "upright man," Adriana Cavarero proposes an altruistic, open model of the subject-one who is inclined toward others. Contrasting the masculine upright with the feminine inclined, she references philosophical texts (by Plato, Thomas Hobbes, Immanuel Kant, Hannah Arendt, Elias Canetti, and others) as well as works of art (Barnett Newman, Leonardo da Vinci, Artemisia Gentileschi, and Alexander Rodchenko) and literature (Marcel Proust and Virginia Woolf).

Responding to global poverty : harm, responsibility, and agency
Barry, Christian, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Assistance-based and contribution-based responsibilities to address global poverty -- Assistance-based responsibilities -- Assistance-based responsibilities -- The implications of failing to assist -- Assistance-based responsibilities in the real world -- Contribution-based responsibilities -- The doing, allowing, and enabling distinction -- Giving rise to cost and the doing, allowing, and enabling distinction -- The feasible alternatives thesis: Pogge on contribution-based responsibilities to the poor -- Contribution-based responsibilities and trade -- Implications of contribution -- The implications of contributing to global poverty -- Assuming responsibility for harm -- Contribution-based responsibilities and overdetermination.

This book explores the nature of moral responsibilities of affluent individuals in the developed world, addressing global poverty and arguments that philosophers have offered for having these responsibilities. The first type of argument grounds responsibilities in ability to avert serious suffering by taking on some cost. The second argument seeks to ground responsibilities in the fact that the affluent are contributing to such poverty. The authors criticise many of the claims advanced by those who seek to ground stringent responsibilities to the poor by invoking these two types of arguments. It does not follow from this that the affluent are meeting responsibilities to the poor. The book argues that while people are not ordinarily required to make large sacrifices in assisting others in severe need, they are required to incur moderate costs to do so. If the affluent fail consistently to meet standards, this fact can substantially increase the costs they require to bear to address it.

Against empathy : the case for rational compassion
Bloom, Paul, 1963- author
New York, NY : Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, [2016]
Other people's shoes -- The anatomy of empathy -- Doing good -- The politics of empathy -- Intimacy -- Empathy as the foundation of morality -- Violence and cruelty -- Age of reason.

"We often think of our capacity to experience the suffering of others as the ultimate source of goodness. Many of our wisest policy-makers, activists, scientists, and philosophers agree that the only problem with empathy is that we don't have enough of it. Nothing could be farther from the truth, argues Yale researcher Paul Bloom. In [this book], Bloom [posits that] empathy [is] one of the leading motivators of inequality and immorality in society. Far from helping us to improve the lives of others, empathy is a capricious and irrational emotion that appeals to our narrow prejudices"--Dust jacket flap.
