Beschreibung:

The author presents a moral theory which charts a course between the extremes of consequentialism and contractualism. He puts forward a radical case for the existence of both agent-neutral and agent-relative values and shows how these disparate values can be weighed against each other.
Introduction: Two Problems in Moral Philosophy; 1. Misgivings about Consequentialism and Contractualism; 2. Cooperating to Promote the Good; 3. Initial Counter-Arguments Supporting Value Monism; 4. Self-Governance and Value Dualism; Conclusion: Implications for the Question of Morality's Authority; References; Index
Robert Myers presents an original moral theory which charts a course between the extremes of consequentialism and contractualism, portraying morality not simply as a matter of promoting the overall good but rather as a matter of cooperating in its promotion. This gives him answers to two of the most vexing questions in moral philosophy: how can increasing general welfare and respecting individual rights be equally fundamental features of moral activity, and whatgives morality's demands their special character of inescapability?
