About this product
- DescriptionMoral Particularism is a timely and penetrating investigation of a theoretical approach that seeks to transform moral philosophy. In the face of continuing disagreement about which general moral principles are correct, there has been a resurgence of interest in the view that the moral language cant - and need t - be backed by any such generalizations. This view, moral particularism, presages a revolution in contemporary moral theory, which has consisted largely of attempts to show that either one general principle or a set of such principles is superior to all its rivals. Twelve new essays by a distinguished international team of contributors, including some of the leading moral philosophers of the day, debate the plausibility of moral particularism. This will be the starting-point for all future discussion of the topic, and compelling reading for all who work in moral philosophy.
