MORAL PHILOSOPHY, THE ETHICAL APPROACH THROUGH THE AGES By Andreas Sofroniou
eBook (PDF): $14.95
(1 Ratings)
Moral Philosophy from Socrates to the 21st Aeon has shown three constant themes. 1. Disagreements over whether ethical judgments are truths about the world or only reflections of the wishes of those... More > who make them, 2. Frequent attempts to show, in the face of considerable scepticism, either that it is in one's own interests to do what is good or that, even though this is not necessarily in one's own interests, it is the rational thing to do, 3.

Mizzoni, J. (2010). Genic Selection and Utilitarian Ethics. Philosophical Frontiers, 5, 1, 109-128. By John Mizzoni

Do standard ethical concepts and principles make sense when placed on an evolutionary foundation? In inquiring into what evolution implies about ethics we must first be clear about what we mean by... More > ethics. Do we mean metaethics? If so, which variety? Do we mean normative ethics? If so, which variety? We must also be clear about what we mean by evolution. Do we mean Darwinian selection or genic selection? Inquiring into what evolution implies about ethics is thus a much larger project than many theorists take it to be. In order to begin to determine whether standard ethical concepts and principles make sense from an evolutionary perspective, in this paper I limit my discussion to one normative ethical theory, utilitarianism, and two models of evolution, Darwinian natural selection and genic selection...< Less

Mirsky argues that moral claims can only be understood within the broader scope... More > of valuational activities in general which form one of two essential pillars to make knowledge of a world possible. Without the capacity to value, he suggests, there can be neither referring nor asserting, both essential to our ability to conceive a world and live within it. Thus valuing can be seen to be a critical element in the formation of human knowledge, placing our ethical judgments on firmer epistemic footing than contemporary philosophy has heretofore allowed.< Less

Exploring the role of valuing in discursive practice in order to understand its implications for our moral judgments and beliefs, this work builds on Stuart W. Mirsky's earlier effort, Choice and... More > Action, which examined the cognitive status of our moral claims. In this new one, Mirsky sets out to answer questions left unresolved in the earlier book in order to better explain how valuation is made possible by, and forms a foundation for, assertoric discourse, thereby becoming the various and distinctive modes of judgment that enable us to operate in the world.
