Regard for reason in the moral mind

Author: Joshua May
Publisher: Oxford, United Kingdom ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2018. ©2018

Summary:
The burgeoning science of ethics has fostered pessimism about moral thought and action: we're told that they are driven by arbitrary factors and unreasoned feelings. Joshua May argues compellingly that this pessimism is not justified: moral judgment and motivation are fundamentally rational enterprises not beholden to the passions.
