Thinking, Fast and Slow. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux; The automatic mode is activated in the trolley problem scenario in which we can save five people at the cost of killing one without having to actively push someone onto the tracks, something that many people intuitively reject.

This view that is shared, for instance, by Singer P. The Expanding Circle. The Methods of Ethics, 7th ed. London: Macmillan; There is a literature, both in philosophy and within bioethics specifically, about what moral expertise is, whether it exists at all, and who counts as a moral expert, with which we do not have the space to engage here.

For the purposes of our paper, however, what matters is not so much how moral expertise should be defined and whether it exists, but the fact that the elitist model we discuss would have to rely on some sort of moral expertise—as well as on other kinds of expertise—rather than on the active participation of the population or of some representation of it.

Research ethics are valued as strongly important in this psychobiographical study due to the fact that the subject of research is alive and not deceased yet Elms, He experienced a complicated birth in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, that he hardly survived Morais, Pedro, his father, was a logical and rational person who worked as an engineer.

He had a linear thought-style and a clearly defined vision, whilst Lydia, the mother, was focused on a strong Christian, Catholic belief Coelho, , p.

Americans Have Positive Views About Religion's Role in Society, but Want It Out of Politics

Paulo's life started with an act of faith and prayer by his mother, Lydia, who intuitively started praying to Saint Joseph when she realised that her son was struggling to survive his birth Morais, She then dedicated Paulo's life to St Joseph Morais, Based on Paulo's introduction to life, childhood was strongly influenced by defining and living his relationship with God through prayers Morais, At the age of six, Paulo started school in the context of a strict Catholic-based primary school system which enforced the values of faith, respect and hard work Morais, However, Paulo intuitively new that he was born to read and to write books and started to focus on reading books extensively from the age of eight years, whilst loosing interest in his work at school.

Already at this time of his life, Paulo was aware of his emotional pull towards reading and towards books which can be interpreted as an intuition as a psychological function according to Jung who defined this psychological function as connected to thoughts and preferences that come to mind quickly and prior to rational analysis Kahneman, However, these unconscious preferences might be viewed as the first "act of recognition" intuition , as defined by Simon , p. This first "act of recognition" on Paulo's way of becoming a world known writer, must be seen as being based on his probably conscious decision to prefer reading, stories and books to school.

Six years later, Paulo started writing a diary. Coelho attended a school with a strict Jesuit tradition which he did not enjoy Morais, , struggled with his belief in God, feelings of guilt, the interest in religion on the one hand and the desire to break free from his strict educational and familial background and experienced a deep crisis when he lost his grandfather Arias, He made new friends who included him into the youth scene of artists, left-wingers and the world of theatre.

He thereby entered a new world which was a strong alternative model to his familiar upbringing. Morais describes that Coelho, as almost by accident, met his new friends that introduced him to this new, fascinating world.

He did not consciously connect to this scene, but found himself in midst the scene, getting inspired by the artistic worldviews of the fellows. His first introduction to the artistic world is described as happening coincidentally Morais, , almost as the application of System 1 operations which happen "automatically" and without effort Evans, , p. However, being torn apart between his parents desire to make him a successful engineer and his personal dream to become a writer, Coelho experienced strong emotional instability Morais, His parents admitted him to a mental hospital thrice between and Jeffries, which impacted strongly on his doubts towards life, the implementation of his dream to become a writer and his self-doubts Arias, ; Morais, In the next life decade, Paulo consumed drugs and entered a new world of personal freedom, away from his parents.

He left university and broke off with his studies in law and engaged more and more in theatre play productions whilst he continued writing Morais, Through the rational decision to stop studying a subject he was not interested in, Coelho served intuitively his dream to become a successful and famous writer.

Religion, Justice and the Death Penalty

During his middle twenties, Coelho was often depressed and frustrated that he had not started to become a famous writer Morais, and therefore made the conscious and rational decision to turn away from his Christian background completely and to believe in the devil and the occult Arias, He believed he was "a magician preparing for his dawn" Morais, , p.

Coelho consciously made the pact with the devil, following his strong inner desire to excel. Besides his involvement in constructing a new belief system and active magical influence to fulfill his dream, Paulo married Gisa, his first wife, met Raul Seixas who became his friend and business partner and got into music productions whilst practicing magic to boost his success Morais, Because of his frustrations of being unsuccessful, Coelho defined himself as the "Prince of Darkness", sold his soul to the devil to make his dream come true and dissolved the contract one hour later and turned away from Satanism completely after having been introduced to the first initiation tire of the sect he had joined which he related to as the phenomenon of the black cloud Arias, He panicked and turned back to his childhood belief: Christianity Morais, His rational decision to sell his soul to his devil was revised by Coelho by his intuition-as-feeling that he was not doing a right thing.

He realised immediately, without effort Evans, and through "thoughts and preferences that come to mind quickly and prior to rational analysis" Kahneman, , p. After Coelho had divorced Gisa, he had married his second wife, but got divorced quickly again during his twenties. It was only during his thirties that Coelho met his life partner Christina. The things we can inflict on each other do arise, give the possibility for vengeance in my Christian soul, but then there is justice.

We have a necessity for justice and we have a necessity for committing justice into the hands of those who are responsible for meting justice and punishment in a just and fitting manner. This brings me back to Niebuhr again. There is one other reason that I feared coming back to Barth — Barth still preaches.

Now, I wish I made that up because it sounds so good, but it really is, from my point of view, an inference from the God who commands and from a life of Christian responsibility lived in relationship to the gracious acts of God upon us. He teaches courses on the death penalty at the Notre Dame Law School.

Let me throw out a caveat to begin: I had a late night last night with two very sick babies, so if I start muttering about veggie tales or singing Old Macdonald to you I hope you understand. Thank you very much, colleagues and Professor Elshtain. A lot of my fellow panelists are people who over the years have taught me a great deal about things like the role of the lawyer and the rule of law and the gift and the content and the challenge of my Christian faith. I expect to continue to learn from them and from you all today. Let me begin on maybe sort of a personal note.

I get to do this in a community of colleagues and students who understand that part of our mission is to inspire and challenge, if we can, young lawyers to carry their faith with them from this community into the public square. Now, on top of all this I represent a young man in Arizona who was sentenced to death 14 years ago now for his involvement in the murder of a police officer.

But enough of that. One of the questioners reminded us earlier this morning that the dominant anthropology today is really reeling from the effects of this eclipse of transcendence. Now, those of you who are familiar with the conventions of the academy and particularly with the peculiar habits of law professors were probably not surprised to see that I gave my remarks this cryptic and ponderous title.

I just hope you noticed though that there was a colon in there. That is essential to the success of any law publication effort. In other words, if, as I believe, we are called as religious believers to bear witness to the truth and to this thing called the dignity of the human person, then what exactly is it that we should be saying in the context of the capital punishment debate? The talk has three parts and I hope they tie together.

An encyclopedia of philosophy articles written by professional philosophers.

First, I want to talk briefly about what I take to be the premise of the conference and indeed of the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life itself, namely the proposition that arguments and expressions of religious believers and communities have a place and should be welcome in the public square of civil society.
