Moral thinking : its levels, method, and point by R. M Hare( Book )

73 editions published between 1981 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 2,488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By distinguishing between 2 different levels of moral thinking, we see how utilitarian reasoning at the critical level - enlisting impartial sympathy for others' predicaments, which we must have if we fully understand them and universalize our preferences as morality requires - generates moral principles for use at the intuitive level
The language of morals by R. M Hare( Book )

163 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hare presents his own brand of non-cognitivism - so-called 'prescriptivism'. According to prescriptivism, value-words have both descriptive and prescriptive meaning. The former conveys information about the objects the words are applied to, and the latter commends a certain kind of object in its class
Sorting out ethics by R. M Hare( )

49 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 2,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sorting Out Ethics is a characteristically lucid and lively survey of rival ethical theories by one of the most influential moral philosophers of the century. It also constitutes a definitive summary of Hare's own fundamental ethical position. The book's main theme is that objectivity in moral thinking is not to be sought by making moral questions into questions of fact; this leads inevitably to relativism, tying us to particular cultures and languages. Objectivity is to be sought, rather, by emphasizing the universally prescriptive character of moral language, which all cultures can share, and so using it to resolve their moral differences. An objective moral prescription, as Kant saw, is one upon which all rational thinkers can agree
Freedom and reason by R. M Hare( Book )

126 editions published between 1963 and 2004 in 6 languages and held by 1,855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rejecting rationality to preserve freedom is the mark of subjectivist/emotivist theories of ethics. Rejecting freedom to emphasize rationality belongs to the naturalist/descriptivist theories. This book aims to reconcile these positions and do away with the alleged antinomy

Essays on political morality by R. M Hare( Book )

19 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R.M. Hare presents a selection of essays in which he brings ethical theory lucidly to bear on moral problems arising in politics. He examines our obligation to obey the law; the limits of legitimate lawbreaking, civil violence, and war; rights of various sorts and their supposed conflict with utility; justice, distributive and retributive; and care of the environment. His arguments are amply illustrated by specific examples. The volume substantiates the author's claim that help with such problems can be found in philosophy, and particularly in his own ethical theory, which draws together the best insights of Kant and utilitarians
Essays on bioethics by R. M Hare( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R.M. Hare is well known both for his fundamental work in ethical theory and for his applications of it to practical issues. For this volume he has selected the best of his writings on medical ethics and related topics. The book's chief theoretical interest lies in its synthesis between utilitarian and Kantian ethics, which are shown to have the same practical consequences. The main practical thesis in the book is that we can harm possible people by preventing them from becoming actual people. This thesis, if understood and accepted, would radically alter the terms of the public debate about embryo experimentation and population policy, and (perhaps surprisingly) support a fairly liberal view on abortion. There are also general introductions to medical and psychiatric ethics, and essays on the concept of health, on the morality of experimentation on children, on health care policy, on free will, and on vegetarianism
Hare and critics : essays on moral thinking( Book )

18 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays on religion and education by R. M Hare( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and French and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R.M. Hare is one of the most widely discussed of today's moral philosophers. In this volume he has collected his most important essays in the related fields of religion and education, some newly published and others now inaccessible. The book starts with an exposition of his ideas on the meaning of religious language. There follow several essays, theoretical and practical, on the relations between religion and morality, which have deep implications for moral education. The central question addressed in the rest of the volume is how children can be educated to think for themselves, freely but rationally, about moral questions, and the effects on society of failure to achieve this. Professor Hare argues that those who want to dispense with morality are in effect resigning from a vital educational task. Attitudes to euthanasia and to equality of educational opportunity are taken as examples of how our thinking can go wrong
Objective prescriptions, and other essays by R. M Hare( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"R. M. Hare has brought together in this volume the best of his uncollected essays in moral philosophy, several of them previously unpublished or revised for this collection. They span the whole range of his ethical interests; from the most abstract to the most down-to-earth. The reader will find here the bases of his ethical theory in Kantian prescriptivism, utilitarianism, and the logic of imperatives, and will see that theory applied to issues of bioethics, medical ethics, business ethics, loyalty and obedience, and racism."--Jacket
