It aims to reach students who have already done an introductory philosophy course and general readers in epistemology at any level."

Robert Audi looks at several such attempts: Aristotle, Kant; Mill; and the movement known as "common-sense" ethics associated with W.D. Ross. He shows how each attempt grew out of its own time and place, yet has some universal qualities that can be used for an ethical framework. This is a short, accessible treatment of a major topic in ethics by a senior and highly-respected figure."--Jacket.

The good in the right : a theory of intuition and intrinsic value by Robert Audi ( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 479 libraries worldwide
"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 version of Rossian intuitionism on the map as a full-scale, plausible contemporary theory." "The Good in the Right is a self-contained original contribution, but readers interested in ethics or its history will find numerous connections with classical and contemporary literature. Written with clarity and concreteness, and with examples for every major point, it provides an ethical theory that is both intellectually cogent and plausible in application to moral problems."--BOOK JACKET.

Religious commitment and secular reason by Robert Audi ( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 447 libraries worldwide
Many religious people are alarmed about features of the current age - violence in the media, a pervasive hedonism, a marginalization of religion, and widespread abortion. These concerns influence politics, but just as there should be a separation between church and state, so should there be a balance between religious commitments and secular arguments calling for social reforms. Robert Audi offers a principle of secular rationale, which does not exclude religious grounds for action but which rules out restricting freedom except on grounds that any rational citizen would accept. The book describes the essential commitments of free democracy, explains how religious and secular moral considerations can be integrated to facilitate co-operation in a world of religious pluralism, and proposes ideals of civic virtue that express the mutual respect on which democracy depends. Audi offers a balanced and sophisticated treatment of the relations between religion and politics in a modern, secular society.

Action, intention, and reason by Robert Audi ( Book )
5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 388 libraries worldwide
In this collection of essays, Audi develops a general theory of action ranging from the nature of action and action-explanation to free and rational action. Eleven of the chapters were previously published. They include such well-known contributions to the philosophy of action as "The Concept of Wanting"(1973), "Intending" (1973), "Moral Responsibility, Freedom, and Compulsion" (1974), and "Acting for Reasons" (1986), and some more recent papers the influence of which is already being felt: "Self-Deception and Practical Reasoning" (1989), "Weakness of Will and Rational Action" (1990), "An Internalist Conception of Rational Action" (1990), and "Responsible Action and Virtuous Character"(1 991). Two chapters a renew essays: "Volition and Agency" and "Modalities of Knowledge and Freedom". An introductory essay presents an overview of Audi's position on action and situates the various chapters in a broader context. The volume divides into four main parts. Part 1 develops an account of the basic concepts featured in intentionalistic explanations of action and in familiar theories of the nature of action. Part 2 employs these concepts in developing a theory of the explanation of action. In the light of this theoretical background, part 3 defends a compatibilist view of freedom and moral responsibility (including responsibility for one's character), and (in a single chapter) sketches accounts of practical reasoning and of self-deception in preparation or an argument that actions promoted by self-deceptive practical reasoning may nevertheless be both free and rational. Finally, part 4 advances a view of rationality and rational action. -- from http://www.jstor.org (May 26, 2011).

Democratic authority and the separation of church and state by Robert Audi ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
Democratic states must protect the liberty of citizens and must accommodate both religious liberty and cultural diversity. This democratic imperative is one reason for the increasing secularity of most modern democracies. Religious citizens, however, commonly see a secular state as unfriendly toward religion. This book articulates principles that enable secular governments to protect liberty in a way that judiciously separates church and state and fully respects religious citizens. After presenting a brief account of the relation between religion and ethics, the book shows how ethics can be in.
