              Mechanical Choices: The Responsibility of the Human Machine

              Mechanical Choices: The Responsibility of the Human Machine (Hardback)

              Mechanical Choices details the intimate connection that exists between morality and law: the morality we use to blame others for their misdeeds and the criminal law that punishes them for these misdeeds. This book shows how both law and morality presuppose the accuracy of common ...sense, a centuries-old psychology that defines people as rational agents who make honorable choices and act for just reasons. It then shows how neuroscience is commonly taken to challenge these fundamental psychological assumptions. Such challenges-four in number-are distinguished from each other by the different neuroscientific facts from which they arise: the fact that human choices are caused by brain events; the fact that those choices don't cause the actions that are their objects but are only epiphenomenal to those choices; the fact that those choices are identical to certain physical events in the brain; and the fact that human subjects are quite fallible in their knowledge of what they are doing and why. The body of this book shows how such challenges are either based on faulty facts or misconceived as to the relevance of such facts to responsibility. The book ends with a detailed examination of the neuroscience of addiction, an examination which illustrates how neuroscience can help rather than challenge both law and morality in their quest to accurately define excuses from responsibility.

              The concept of causation is fundamental to ascribing moral and legal responsibility for events. Yet the precise relationship between causation and responsibility remains unclear. This book clarifies that relationship through an analysis of the best accounts of causation in metaph...ysics, and a critique of the confusion in legal doctrine.

              Description: The purpose of this book is to help postmodern Westerners understand what the Bible has to say about wealth and possessions, basing itself on the presumption that (a) nobody can understand themselves apart from some recognition of their spiritual roots, and (b) that ...these roots sink deeper into the pages of the Bible than most Westerners realize. Focusing upon that part of the Bible most widely recognized to be its ideological core--that which is called Torah by some, Pentateuch by others--it interprets this great text against other great texts in its literary-historical environment, including (a) some epic poems from Mesopotamia, (b) some Jewish texts from Syria-Palestine, and (c) some Nazarene parables from the Greek New Testament. Endorsements: This remarkable book by Michael Moore asks what the Bible and other ancient texts have to say about important socioeconomic questions involving wealth: its acquisition and protection; deprivation and slavery; corruption and hedonism; and even relations between management and labor. This is a thoughtful and eminently readable study that nicely lays out the big problems entailed by wealth and looks at how ancient literature offers critiques of wealth practices and related social problems. Moore offers insights and wisdom from the Bible and other ancient classics to anyone trying to think about and evaluate modern values in a culture that all too often seems sadly obsessed with money. -Mark S. Smith Skirball Professor of Bible and Ancient Near Eastern Studies New York University Michael Moore has written an extraordinarily wide-ranging, widely-read, lively, swashbuckling, and illuminating book on a topic of huge importance in our world--indeed (as he shows) in any world. It will give you new understanding of the Bible, it will not bore you, and the footnotes alone are an education. -John Goldingay David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament Fuller Theological Seminary A thoroughly researched review of socioeco

              This book is a collection of revised-and-updated essays about the Hebrew Bible written by a North American scholar over a period of several decades. Subdivided into three parts--Torah, Prophecy/Apocalyptic, and Wisdom--these seventeen essays attempt to model for younger scholars ...and students what the discipline of biblical interpretation can look like, attending carefully to literary, historical, canonical, and comparative intertextual methods of investigation. For more than three decades, Michael Moore has shed light on the social worlds behind, and the imaginative worlds within and arising from, biblical texts. Moving from discrete exegetical problems to the life patterns of communities of faith, these essays model an approach to biblical scholarship that says to all, 'come and enjoy this for yourself.' We may all be grateful that Moore has invited us to share the fruits of his labors. --Mark Hamilton, Onstead Professor of Biblical Studies, Graduate School of Theology, Abilene Christian University Drawing upon the breadth and depth of his knowledge of ancient Near Eastern studies, modern biblical scholarship, and numerous methodologies, Moore traverses the range of genres within the Bible, yielding new understanding. The collection of essays exhibits uniformly philological, literary, and historical richness. Torrents of insights flow from these essays. --Joel Gereboff, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Arizona State University Michael S. Moore (PhD, Drew University) teaches courses about the Hebrew Bible to students at Arizona State University, Fuller Theological Seminary, and the Arizona Research Center for the Ancient Near East (www.arcane-az.com), where he serves as Director. He is the author of The Balaam Traditions: Their Character and Development (Scholars Press, 1990) and WealthWatch: A Study of Socioeconomic Conflict in the Bible (Pickwick, 2011).

              Like the first volume in this series (WealthWatch, Pickwick, 2011) this book attempts to do two things: (a) examine the primary socioeconomic motifs in the Bible from a comparative intertextual perspective, and (b) trace the trajectory formed by these motifs through Tanak into ea...rly Jewish and Nazarene texts. Where WealthWatch focuses on Torah, WealthWarn focuses on the single largest section of the Bible--the Prophets. Where the ancient Near Eastern texts surveyed in WealthWatch include the Epic of Gilgamesh, Atrahasis, and the Epic of Erra, the texts examined here include Inanna's Descent, the Babylonian Creation Epic (enuma elish), the Disappearance of Telipinu, and the Ba`al Epic. Where the Jewish texts surveyed in WealthWatch include historical and sectarian texts, the texts studied here include Ezra-Nehemiah, the Epistle of Jeremiah and Tobit. Where the Nazarene texts in WealthWatch focus on the stewardship parables found in the Gospel of Luke, the texts examined here focus on several prophetic vignettes from the Gospel of Matthew and Acts of the Apostles.
