The Good in the Right
A Theory of Intuition and Intrinsic ValueeBook - 2004
This book represents the most comprehensive account to date of an important but widely contested approach to ethics--intuitionism, the view that there is a plurality of moral principles, each of which we can know directly. Robert Audi casts intuitionism in a form that provides a major alternative to the more familiar ethical perspectives (utilitarian, Kantian, and Aristotelian). He introduces intuitionism in its historical context and clarifies--and improves and defends--W.D. Ross's influential formulation. Bringing Ross out from under the shadow of G.E. Moore, he puts a reconstructed versio.
