Autonomy of Morality by Charles E. Larmore
Book DescriptionIn The Autonomy of Morality Charles Larmore challenges two ideas that have shaped the modern mind. The world, he argues, is not a realm of value-neutral fact, nor does human freedom consist in imposing principles of our own devising on an alien reality. Rather, reason consists in being responsive to reasons for thought and action that arise from the world itself. Larmore shows that the moral good has an authority that speaks for itself. Only in this light does the true basis of a liberal political order come into view, as well as the role of unexpected goods in the makeup of a life lived well.

Books By Author Charles E. Larmore
Practices of the Self, Hardback (February 2011)
What is the nature of the fundamental relation we have to ourselves that makes each of us a self? To answer this question, the author develops a systematic theory of the self, challenging the widespread view that the self's defining relation to itself is to have an immediate knowledge of its own thoughts.
Romantic Legacy, Hardback (June 1996)
Ranging broadly through English, French, and German philosophy, literature, and art, Charles Larmore untangles the strands of our Romantic inheritance that, he argues, ought to figure in the fabric of our own self-understanding. The book focuses on imagination, community, irony and authenticity.
Morals of Modernity, Paperback (March 1996)
The essays collected in this volume all explore the problem of the relation between moral philosophy and modernity.
Patterns of Moral Complexity, Paperback (January 1987)» View all books by Charles E. Larmore
Larmore aims to recover three forms of moral complexity that have often been neglected by moral and political philosophers.
