Kierkegaard and the Limits of the Ethical by Anthony Rudd

Book Description

Anthony Rudd introduces, explains, and discusses of some of Kierkegaard's central ideas, showing their relevance to current debates in ethics, epistemology, and the philosophy of religion. Rudd uses these ideas to illuminate questions about the foundations of morality and the nature of personal identity, as discussed by analytical philosophers such as MacIntyre, Parfit, Williams, and Foot. Kierkegaard and the Limits of the Ethical offers a way forward from the sterile conflict between the view that morality and religion are based on objective reasoning and the view that they are merely expressions of subjective emotions. Rudd argues that morality and religion must be understood in terms of the individual's search for a sense of meaning in his world, but emphasizes that this does not imply that values are arbitrary or merely subjective.

Books By Author Anthony Rudd

Self, Value, and Narrative by Anthony Rudd Self, Value, and Narrative, Hardback (November 2012)

Anthony Rudd presents a striking new account of the self as an ethical, evaluative being. He draws on Kierkegaard's thought to present a case for an ancient and currently neglected view: that the tensions which are constitutive of selfhood can only be reconciled through the understanding of the self as guided by an objective Good.

Expressing the World by Anthony Rudd Expressing the World, Paperback (July 2003)

Skepticism, the view that reliable knowledge is beyond our grasp, has defied refutation throughout the history of philosophy. This work argues that skepticism cannot be avoided as long as knowledge is considered purely as an intellectual matter.
