This book is an inquiry into the extent to which human relationships are foundational in morality. J. Kellenberger seeks to discover, first, how relationships between persons, and ultimately the relationship that each person has to each person by virtue of being a person, underlie the various traditional components of morality--obligation, virtue, justice, rights and moral goods--and, second, how relationship morality is more fully consonant with our moral experience than other forms of human morality.
