The language of morals by R. M Hare( Book )

135 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,083 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

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

Essays on bioethics by R. M Hare( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 509 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
Essays on religion and education by R. M Hare( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and French and held by 452 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 )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 310 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
