Morals from Motives by Michael A. Slote

Book Description

Morals from Motives develops a virtue ethics inspired more by moral sentimentalism than by recently-influential Aristotelianism. It argues that a reconfigured and expanded 'morality of caring' can offer a general account of right and wrong action and also (in its own terms) of social justice, and the book goes on to show how a motive-based 'pure' virtue theory can also help us to understand the nature of human well-being and practical reason.
