About this product
- DescriptionWhat form, or forms, might ethical kwledge take? In particular, can ethical kwledge take the form either of moral theory, or of moral intuition? If it can, should it? These are central questions for ethics today, and they are the central questions for the philosophical essays collected in this volume. Intuition, Theory, and Anti-Theory in Ethics draws together new work by leading experts in the field, in order to represent as many different perspectives on the discussion as possible. The volume is t built upon any kind of tidy consensus about what 'kwledge', 'theory', and 'intuition' mean. Rather, the idea is to explore as many as possible of the different things that kwledge, theory, and intuition could be in ethics.
