Twelve new essays by an international team of contributors, including some of the leading moral philosophers of the day, debate the plausibility of moral particularism. They aim to be the starting-point for all future discussion of the topic, and useful reading for all who work in moral philosophy.
1. Moral Particularism: Wrong and Bad; 2. Particularising Particularism; 3. The Truth in Particularism; 4. Ethical Particularism and Patterns; 5. Ethics as an Inexact Science: Aristotle's Ambition for Moral Theory; 6. The Particularist's Progress; 7. Ethical Particularism in Context; 8. Particularity and Principle: The Structure of Moral Knowledge; 9. Against Deriving Particularity; 10. Why Practice Needs Ethical Theory: Particularism, Principle, and Bad Behaviour; 11. Unprincipled Ethics; 12. Moral Generalities Revisited; Bibliography; Index
A timely and penetrating investigation, this book 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 idea that correct moral judgements can be only about particular cases. This view--moral particularism--forecasts a revolution in ordinary moral practice that has until now consisted largely of appeals to general moral principles. Moral particularism also opposes the primary aim of most contemporary normative moral theory that attempts to show that either one general principle, or a set of general principles, is superior to all its rivals.
