Description - Contemporary Debates in Moral Theory by James Dreier

Contemporary Debates in Moral Theory is a collection of new essays addressing central questions in contemporary ethics and moral philosophy. Questions include: Are moral requirements derived from reason? How demanding is morality? Are virtues the proper starting point for moral theorizing? Eight central questions shape the volume, with each question sparking a pair of opposing essays, summarizing the most important and forceful grounds of each position. Together, the essays provide an accessible introduction to the major topics in contemporary moral theory.
