The Mystery of Moral Authority

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan UK, Dec 15, 2015 - Philosophy - 119 pages
The Mystery of Moral Authority argues for a sceptical and pragmatic view of morality as an all-too-human institution. Searching, intellectually rigorous, and always fair to rival views, it represents the state of the art in a tradition of moral philosophy that includes Thomas Hobbes, David Hume, and J.L. Mackie.
