Because of its goal to settle the moral question fully and exclusively and/or to provide better understanding of moral disagreement, traditional first-order moral theory often does not provide sufficient guidance to address this phenomenon and moral agency in deeply morally diverse societies. In this article, I move beyond traditional first-order moral theorizing and, based on multilevel social contract theory (Moehler 2018, 2020a), develop a practically sound notion of moral agency for morally diverse societies. The interrelational and dynamic notion of <em>integrated moral agency</em> developed in this article demands that agents actively exercise their rational and affective capacities, are receptive to the capacities of others, and are aware of the type of moral interaction in which they engage with others. The notion of integrated moral agency helps agents to reconcile conflicting first-order moral directives and to maximally protect agents’ autonomy in morally diverse societies.</p> Michael Moehler Copyright (c) 2021 Michael Moehler 2021-09-07 2021-09-07 14 2 –aa –aa 10.23941/ejpe.v14i2.523 Group Membership or Identity? https://www.ejpe.org/journal/article/view/620 <p>As part of an article symposium on Partha Dasgupta and Sanjeev Goyal’s “Narrow Identities” (2019,&nbsp;<em data-stringify-type="italic">Journal of Institutional and Theoretical Economics</em>), Miriam Teschl reflects on the distinctive concept of identity liberal cosmopolitans have and how it may or may not be captured in economic models of identity choice.</p> Miriam Teschl Copyright (c) 2021 Miriam Teschl 2021-10-05 2021-10-05 14 2 –aa –aa 10.23941/ejpe.v14i2.620 The Paths to Narrow Identities https://www.ejpe.org/journal/article/view/615 <p>As part of an article symposium on Partha Dasgupta and Sanjeev Goyal’s “Narrow Identities” (2019, <em data-stringify-type="italic">Journal of Institutional and Theoretical Economics</em>), Jean-Paul Carvalho reflects on the concept of narrow identity and the ways of modelling its emergence.</p> Jean-Paul Carvalho Copyright (c) 2021 Jean-Paul Carvalho 2021-08-30 2021-08-30 14 2 –aa –aa 10.23941/ejpe.v14i2.615 Deepening and Widening Social Identity Analysis in Economics https://www.ejpe.org/journal/article/view/619 <p>As part of an article symposium on Partha Dasgupta and Sanjeev Goyal’s “Narrow Identities” (2019,&nbsp;<em data-stringify-type="italic">Journal of Institutional and Theoretical Economics</em>), John B.

Here, I defend one connection between vaccine refusal and free riding and suggest that, when viewed in conjunction with their other arguments, this might constitute a reason to mandate Covid-19 vaccination.</p> Lucie White Copyright (c) 2021 Lucie White 2021-09-02 2021-09-02 14 2 –aa –aa 10.23941/ejpe.v14i2.603 Review of Michel S.
