EDITOR'S INTRODUCTION

This month's Philosophy Pathways focuses upon a trio of conundrums that would interest the wide-reading philosopher. The first article is 'On the definition of jealousy and other emotions in Anarchy, State and Utopia' by T.R. Edwards. The second article is provided by Sreetama Misra and is entitled 'Ethics and Knowledge: A Study from Russell's Perspective'. The third and final article is a response to the question 'Is it Immoral to Kill Animals?' by Dimitrios Chaniotis. Within this editorial I have tried to briefly demonstrate how all of the arguments provided may be augmented by the inclusion of political philosophy [...]

I. 'ON THE DEFINITION OF JEALOUSY AND OTHER EMOTIONS IN ANARCHY, STATE AND UTOPIA' BY T.R. EDWARD

This paper responds to an ingenious footnote from Robert Nozick's book Anarchy, State and Utopia. Using a table of four possible situations, Nozick defines what it is to be jealous, envious, begrudging, spiteful and competitive.

The prime concern here is a focus on Russell's departure from considering ethics as a branch of knowledge and philosophy, and how this challenging exposition expresses his distaste in this regard. I also undertake an effort to strikingly interpret Russell's points, considering the cases of human passions, and subjectivity in ethics [...]

III. 'IS IT IMMORAL TO KILL ANIMALS? A CRITIQUE' BY DIMITRIOS CHANIOTIS

In a recent paper in Philosophy Pathways Issue 204, Wyle Tan claims that 1) Animal rights arguments are not logically conclusive, 2) Someone may develop reasons in the future, but for now, there is no morally compelling reason to stop eating animal meat.

In order to support his thesis he rejects two points of view. The first states that "Animals can suffer and we should minimize suffering of all beings". The second, that "Animals have innate rights to life equal to human rights". My aim is to twofold. At first, to comment on his arguments. Secondly to show that it is indeed immoral to kill animals [...]
