Beschreibung

Why do we behave as we do? Can we improve? Is our ethics at war with our passions, or is it an upshot of those passions? Distinguished philosopher Simon Blackburn seeks the answers to such questions in this brilliant exploration of the nature of moral emotions and the structures of human motivation. Ruling Passions reveals how ethics can maintain its authority even though it is rooted in the very emotions and motivations that it exists to control.

Pressestimmen

Executed with Blackburn's characteristic witty eloquence, with stylish literary references and many examples Mind This book is that rare thing: a work of philosophy beautifully written, able to engage the interest of those outside a narrow sphere of academic specialists, while attending to philosophical problems that most worry those who spend their professional life trying to solve them Ethics Ruling Passions gives us our humanity, providing some answers to those sceptics who find Kantian morality devoid of psychological realism Alex Klaushoefer, Times Higher Education Supplement A fascinating book that seeks to clarify what we are doing when we make moral judgments Philosophy
