Abstract:

"Tradition in the Ethics of Alasdair MacIntyre presents an intellectual history history and defense of this towering figure in contemporary American philosophy. Drawing on interviews and published works, Christopher Stephen Lutz traces MacIntyre's philosophical development and refutes the criticisms of the major thinkers - including Martha Nussbaum and Thomas Nagel - who have most vocally attacked him. Lutz convincingly demonstrates how MacIntyre's neo-Aristotelian ethical thought provides an essential corrective to the contemporary discussions of relativism and ideology, while successfully drawing on the objectivity of Thomistic natural law."--Jacket.
