Others 104 Pages
Series: Revisioning Philosophy, Volume 25

Summary

Does rationality define moral space? What if egoism can be shown to fall within this space as defined? But then how could anything so enclosed as criteria of rationality have been said to constitute «morality?» This book argues that this «moral agoraphobia» of certain contemporary moral theories hides the possibility of different moral perspectives. Examples from George Eliot's Middlemarch and André Gide's The Immoralist are worked into this argument.
