Synopses & Reviews
Ethical intuitionists believe that there is an irreducible plurality of basic moral principles, that these principles are self-evident, and that rightness and goodness are indefinable properties that cannot be understood in wholly naturalistic terms. In this collection, leading moral philosophers consider how these views are to be understood, and what implications they have for our understanding of morality.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -299) and index.
