About this product
- DescriptionBuilding the Moral Community: Radical Naturalism and Emergence demonstrates how very simple models of moral engagements based on natural, incomplete, value-laden frames of the world can lead to general moral progress for the human community. All moral behavior affects more than one person, which means that the moral community is more than the sum of the individuals included in it. David W. Chambers argues that there is ethically detached and superior position from which to operate, and that such claims are focused on ethics, t on acting morally. Therefore, he cautions against mistaking theories of ethics composed on statements about what is good and right for actual moral behavior that moves broadly and inevitably toward a better world. This book explores naturalistic ethics, offering a modified classical analytic philosophy exploration of morality that is consistent with emerging thinking in psychology, neurobiology, game theory, and self-adjusting systems.
- Author BiographyDavid W. Chambers is professor of dental education at the University of the Pacific. He has been a visiting scholar in philosophy at Cambridge University, University of California, Berkeley, and the London School of Economics exploring moral issues.
