Author’s picks, April 28-May 4

This week’s recommendations include two posts.

The first, On passionate disagreement and self-identity, argues that the proximate passionate disagreement over a topic arises from the way an opinion on it challenges one to break with a certain understanding of the self, itself ultimately grounded in how the matter in question demands adherence to a certain way of life.

The second, A dilemma for a constitutionally protected, publicly funded right to abortion, argues from a distinction between private and public goods that abortion is  constitutionally protected if and only if it is not publicly fundable.
