1. Hogan, David. Moral Groundworks for the Establishment and Analysis of Rights to 'Intellectual Property'.

Degree: MA, Department of Philosophy, 2011, Dalhousie University

Historically, there have been two moral theories which have dominated the analysis of 'intellectual property': Natural law theory and Utilitarianism. The former argues that authors have an inalienable right to control the products of their minds while the latter argues that the moral status of a law establishing 'intellectual property' is inextricably tied to the attempt to maximize societal well-being. In this thesis I argue that few justifiable natural rights to the products of our minds can be found and, subsequently, the justification of such rights must stem from the latter theory. I argue that Utilitarianism places many strong limitations on the extensiveness of the powers granted to 'intellectual property' right-holders by a moral law. Finally, I argue that independent of a given societal state-of-affairs, we have two moral obligations: to follow the trend set by moral authors, and to lend them our support.

2. Mumm, Shanna Lee. Senghor's Contribution to Development: Culture, Cosmopolitanism and Earth Wisdom.

Degree: MA, Department of International Development Studies, 2011, Dalhousie University

This thesis is an exploration of how Senghorian thought can be useful for rethinking development. I argue that the criticisms provided by post-development are valid but that we need not reject development entirely. Rather than basing development in paternalism and charity, a foundation that will support and cultivate equality is necessary. I argue that Senghor's philosophy is particularly useful for rethinking development because it involves the deconstruction of colonial legacies, especially notions of inferiority and superiority. Furthermore, a Senghorian approach is useful because his cosmopolitan vision is based on ultimate equality that still recognizes and encourages cultural difference and finally, because his philosophy prescribes a way for humans to live in harmony with nature.
