Work in Progress:

  • Social Inequality I: Infantilization”: When a person is infantilized, they are denied their maturity as an adult and treated as if they were a child. The wrongness of infantilization cannot be apprehended merely by looking at its effects and the harm it causes. Infantilization is a status diminisher: its wrongness also lies in its demeaning nature. Even if those forms of infantilization were not perceived as disrespectful and were not harmful to those subjected to it, we would still have good reasons to object to it.
  • “Social Inequality II: Demonization”: When an individual, or a group of individuals, are demonized, they are vilified as a wicked and devious threats to the community. Demonization denies the equal morality of the individuals subjected to it. Debasing vulnerable individuals as moral inferiors is a powerful mechanism of oppression and social exclusion. Despite its importance as a historical phenomenon, demonization has hardly been discussed by contemporary egalitarians.
  • “Towards an Ethics of Social Banditry”: This paper looks at cases of social bandits who stole from the rich to give to the poor, like the mythical figure of Robin Hood. The phenomenon has been widely researched by social historians but not by moral and political philosophers. While acknowledging that social banditry can undermine personal security, the rule of law, and democracy, I will ask when (if ever) social banditry might be permissible.
