Product Overview

The outstanding features of this book are that it directly confronts the challenge posed by G.E.M. Anscombe in Modern Moral Philosophy of how moral philosophy can be done, it makes a significant contribution to the debate on virtue theory and anti-theory in ethics, and it shows the relevance of such theoretical discussion by grounding it in, and applying it to, contemporary moral issues such as abortion, suicide, and the moral status of animals. No other book currently available covers this ground. The book is aimed primarily at upper-level undergraduates, graduate students and faculty in philosophy, but it should be accessible to anyone with an interest in practical ethics or the philosophy of Wittgenstein.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Originally developed as a dissertation at the University of Virginia, this book addresses itself to the problems posed by G.E.M. Anscombe's influential paper "Modern Moral Philosophy." In particular, it considers the question of how moral philosophy can be done, and places the problem in the contexts of virtue ethics and anti-theoretical ethics, grounding the discussion in the application of theory to modern moral problems such as abortion, suicide, and the status of animals.
