Lectures on the history of moral philosophy in England by William Whewell( Book )

27 editions published between 1852 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The following lectures contain criticisms on the views and doctrines of a series of ethical writers; they attempt to point out how far each was right, and in what way he contributed to the progress of moral speculation in this country. It is plain that such judgments must be affected by the views and doctrines of the critic himself. Nor is this a disadvantage in such criticism, if the critic's point of view be definite and evident. In my "Elements of Morality" I have given that view of the grounds and relations of moral truths to which the best parts of all previous moral speculations appear to me to converge; but it may still be of use to explain here, more briefly and pointedly, the System of Morality there presented"--Introduction.
