Deontology by Stephen Darwall

Book Description

Deontology is a major approach to normative ethical theory that holds that whether an agent's action is right or wrong depends not just on consequences, but also on other 'agent-relative' features of an individual's situation - their relations to others, to past actions, and so on.One classical source for this view is Kant's idea that every person has an inestimable worth, or dignity, that cannot be traded off against other values. But the idea is also prominent in 'intuitionist' deontologists, who hold that many different moral considerations and principles exist, and that these cannot be reduced to any fundamental principle or value. Deontology collects, for the first time, both the major classical sources and the central contemporary expressions of this important position. In addition to Kant, classical selections from Richard Price and W. D. Ross are included. Contemporary writers represented here include Robert Nozick, Thomas Nagel, Stephen Darwall, Judith Jarvis Thomson, Frances Myrna Kamm, Warren S. Quinn, and Christine M. Korsgaard. Edited and introduced by Stephen Darwall, these readings are essential for anyone interested in normative theory.

Books By Author Stephen Darwall

Honor, History, and Relationship by Stephen Darwall Honor, History, and Relationship, Hardback (October 2013)

Stephen Darwall expands upon his argument for a second-personal framework for morality, in which morality entails mutual accountability and the authority to address demands. He explores the role of the framework in relation to cultural ideas of respect and honor; the development of "modern" moral philosophy; and interpersonal relations.

Morality, Authority, and Law by Stephen Darwall Morality, Authority, and Law, Hardback (March 2013)

Stephen Darwall presents a series of essays that explore the view that morality is second-personal, entailing mutual accountability and the authority to address demands. He illustrates the power of the second-personal framework to illuminate a wide variety of issues in moral, political, and legal philosophy.

Second-Person Standpoint by Stephen Darwall Second-Person Standpoint, Paperback (September 2009)

Showing how attempts to vindicate morality have tended to change the subject - falling back on nonmoral values or practical, first-person considerations - this title elaborates the interpersonal nature of moral obligations: their inherent link to our responsibilities to one another as members of the moral community.

Consequentialism by Stephen Darwall Consequentialism, Paperback (September 2002)

Consequentialism is a major approach to normative ethical theory, which considers the production of good and prevention of bad consequences the touchstone of the moral evaluation. This work brings together both the main classical sources and the central contemporary expressions of this position.
