Bernard Williams begins his skeptical look at the history of ethical theory with a reminder of where it began, with Socrates’ question, “how should one live?” If ethics aims to address the question of “how one should live”, then the work of historians may just be our greatest source of what Mill called “experiments in living” or narratives about the different ways in which humans have lived. Williams claimed that distance establishes a relativism that prevents us from looking to the distant past and asking whether that is “how one should live”, or whether a particular historical practice constituted “living well.” In contrast, R.G. Collingwood claimed that it is not only possible, but necessary, to hold the beliefs of distant agents in order to avoid “scissors and paste” history, or history that makes use of inductive generalization. Surveying seven decades worth of historical writing on the conflict between the US and Japan during World War II, this book explores the ways in which historians use moral statements in their writing, and particularly in their accounts of political leadership. Specifically, it identifies six distinct modes of moral reasoning used in history, and contrasts these modes of reasoning with the Kantian, Utilitarian, and Aristotelian modes of reasoning found in traditional moral philosophy. Finally, drawing on the philosophy of history of both Williams and Collingwood, the book reconciles skepticism with the possibility of using the past to understand how one should live with the historian’s need to avoid scissors and paste history.

This monograph explores the ethics and religious sensibilities of a group of the hibakusha (survivors) of 1945's atomic bombings. Unfortunately, their ethic of "not retaliation, but reconciliation" has not been much known, perhaps obscured by the mushroom cloud. However, it is worth examining their philosophy, as it could offer resources to reconcile the contested issues of public memories, especially in the post 9-11 era.

Poetry. In these poems of the anatomy lab, the emergency room, and the garden, the language of medicine is fused into lyrics of house calls and nursing home rounds and infused with all of the love and grief of caring for and losing a patient. The title comes from a teacher who instructed that when faced with a crisis the way to proceed is to take one breath and then another. Over the last two decades, Catharine Clark-Sayles has worked
