Conversations on Ethics

Can we trust our intuitive judgments of right and wrong? Are moral judgments objective? What reason do we have to do what is right and avoid what is wrong? In Conversations on Ethics, Alex Voorhoeve elicits answers to these questions from eleven outstanding philosophers and social scientists:

Ken Binmore
Philippa Foot
Harry Frankfurt
Allan Gibbard
Daniel Kahneman
Frances Kamm
Alasdair MacIntyre
T. M. Scanlon
Peter Singer
David Velleman
Bernard Williams

The exchanges are direct, open, and sharp, and give a clear account of these thinkers’ core ideas about ethics. They also provide unique insights into their intellectual development–how they became interested in ethics and how they conceived the ideas for which they became famous.
