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. I deny a claim that Nozick
makes for his table, a claim needed for these definitions. I also
point out that Nozick fails to capture what he has in mind by
jealousy. [...]

II. 'ETHICS AND KNOWLEDGE: A STUDY FROM RUSSELL'S PERSPECTIVE' BY
SREETAMA MISRA

This paper on ethical studies has been of significant interests
because of its extreme acceptability due to its wide application in
practical fields of human encounters, in living and society. 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 [...]
