|Title:||The inescapability of ethics||Authors:||Casey, Gerard||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5342||Date:||Jun-2013||Online since:||2014-02-04T09:24:40Z||Abstract:||As a philosophical theory, as contrasted with a theological view or an assumption of popular science or an emotional intuition about fate, determinism fails because it is unstateable. However far we impinge (for instance for legal or moral purposes) upon the area of free will we cannot philosophically exhibit a situation in which, instead of shifting, it vanishes. The phenomena of rationality and morality are involved in the very attempt to banish them.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||University of Notre Dame Press||Copyright (published version):||2013, University of Notre Dame Press||Keywords:||Explanatory pluralism; Ethics; Moral evaluation||Other versions:||http://undpress.nd.edu/book/P03062||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Fran O'Rourke (eds.).
