Ideal code, real world : a rule-consequentialist theory of morality by Brad Hooker( )

29 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What are appropriate criteria for assessing a theory of morality? In Ideal Code, Real World, Brad Hooker begins by answering this question, and then argues for a rule-consequentialist theory. According to rule-consequentialism, acts should be assessed morally in terms of impartially justified rules, and rules are impartially justified if and only if the expected overall value of their general internalization is at least as great as for any alternative rules. In the course of developing his rule - consequentialism, Hooker discusses impartiality, well-being, fairness, equality, the question of how the 'general internalization' of rules is to be interpreted by rule-consequentialism, and the main objections to rule-consequentialism. He also discusses the social contract theory of morality, act-consequentalism, and the question of which moral prohibitions and which duties to help others rule - consequentialism endorses. The last part of the book considers the implications of rule-consequentialism for some current controversies in practical ethics."--Jacket

Moral particularism by Brad Hooker( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moral Particularism is a investigation of a theoretical approach that seeks to transform moral philosophy. In the face of continuing disagreement about which general moral principles are correct, there has been a resurgence of interest in the view that the moral domain cannot - and need not - be backed by any such generalizations." "This view, moral particularism, presages a revolution in contemporary moral theory, which has consisted largely of attempts to show that either one general principle or a set of such principles is superior to all its rivals." "Twelve new essays by a distinguished international team of contributors, including some of the leading moral philosophers of the day, debate the plausibility of moral particularism. This will be the starting-point for all future discussion of the topic, and compelling reading for all who work in moral philosophy."--Jacket
