Beschreibung

Morals from Motives develops a virtue ethics inspired more by Hume and Hutcheson's moral sentimentalism than by recently-influential Aristotelianism. It argues that a reconfigured and expanded "morality of caring" can offer a general account of right and wrong action as well as social justice. Expanding the frontiers of ethics, it goes on to show how a motive-based "pure" virtue theory can also help us to understand the nature of human well-being and practical reason.

Pressestimmen

"Contemporary virtue ethics has had a decidedly Aristotelian look to it, at least until now. Michael Slote offers an interesting alternative in his new book Morals from Motives. Slote here develops a sentimentalist approach to virtue ethics, one that is inspired by the Humean rather than the Aristotelian tradition in ethics...This book should be required reading for those interested in virtue ethics and understanding how it compares to other moral theories."--Julia Driver, Journal of Ethics
"Revivals of virtue ethics usually take their cue from Aristotle and the Stoics. Not so Michael Slote's stimulating new book Morals from Motives, which instead develops virtue ethics approaches inspired, respectively, by the British sentimentalism of Hutcheson and the feminist ethics of care...[A]n ambitious and ground-breaking approach...surprising if this book did not generate significant interest in agent-based forms of virtue ethics."--Michael Brady, Philosophical Quarterly
