Research help needed: Looking for good sources on ethical considerations related to polyamory/polygamy (polygyny, polyandry, and polygynandry). Ideal sources would address polygamy within specific ethical frameworks, such as Kantian deontology, utilitarianism, divine command theory, care ethics, pluralism, moral relativism, egoism, etc.

Thanks to anyone who can help me. I'm not having a lot of luck finding what I'm looking for.

I'm in the process of researching a paper that will deal with how the ideals of poly relationships fit within various moral frameworks. I can find a lot of information in regards to justice perspectives and American jurisprudence, but nothing that deals with specific moral theories.

If you're interested, here's a little something I did last year: http://bobnoxiousthoughts.blogspot.com/2011/04/i-do-i-do-and-we-do-too-plural-marriage.html

So, I'm going to move this to the more general area of the boards then, since this area is really for personal issues, especially personal crisis issues, where users expressly need staff help.

Helping with a paper just really isn't any of those things and isn't something it's sound for us to put first, okay?

So, I'll move it to the general area and let's see if anyone wants to pitch in.

Not a problem at all. I understand. Just found the forum today and I didn't read the rules. Sorry, I blew it.

Nah, no worries. Just getting your feet wet, that's all. [Smile]
