Kant, duty, and moral worth by Philip Stratton-Lake( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kant, Duty and Moral Worth is an original examination of Kant's account of moral worth. The debate over whether or not Kant said moral actions have worth only if they are carried out from duty or whether actions carried out from mixed motives can be good is complex and lies at the heart of Kant's philosophy. Philip Stratton-Lake offers a unique account of acting from duty which utilises the distinction between primary and secondary motives. He maintains that the moral law should not be understood as a normative moral reason but as playing a transcendental role. Thus, a Kantian account of moral worth is one where the virtuous agent may be responsive to concrete particular considerations whilst preserving an essential role for universal moral principles." "Kant, Duty and Moral Worth is an examination of Kant's moral thought which will appeal to Kant scholars and anyone interested in moral theory."--Jacket

On What we owe to each other by Philip Stratton-Lake( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"T.M. Scanlon's On What We Owe to Each Other is one of the most significant works in moral philosophy of recent years. It presents distinctive views on reasons, value, and well-being, and offers a contractualist account of moral wrongness and significance. It has initiated debates on the nature of value, the role of well-being, how numbers matter in deciding what we should do, and the role justifiability plays in our moral thinking. In On What We Owe to Each Other, five leading moral philosophers assess various aspects of Scanlon's moral theory as laid out in this seminal work."--BOOK JACKET
The Edinburgh encyclopedia of Continental philosophy by Simon Glendinning( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, interest in Continental thought has risen markedly in English-speaking philosophy. However, there has been very little introductory material available for students and teachers. This Encyclopedia aims to meet that need, offering a comprehensive guide and essential reference tool for all undergraduates, graduates and teachers of philosophy, literary theory and the history of ideas. Reflecting the 'movements-based' nature of the Continental tradition, the Encyclopedia begins with the founding texts of Classical Idealism, and each subsequent chapter follows, in order of their emergence, the schools of thought that make up and characterise this distinctive and important tradition of philosophy."--Jacket

The right and the good by W. D Ross( Recording )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The central concern of [this] book is with rightness and goodness, and their relation. [In the book, the author] argues against notable rival ethical theories. The right act, he held, cannot be derived from the moral value of the motive from which it is done. Furthermore, rightness is not wholly determined by the value of the consequences of done's action, whether this value is some benefit for the agent, or some agent-neutral good. Rather, the right act is determined by a plurality of self-evident prima facie duties. [He] portrayed rightness and goodness as simple non-natural properties.-Back cover
