Applied ethics and social problems

Tony Fitzpatrick

Policy Press

While attention to the foundations of moral deliberation, insight and analysis is important, we do not yet possess a firm, comprehensive theory. The book's aim is not to propose a full theory of social humanism, but to highlight three principles that are surely crucial to it and to which it has returned selectively throughout: compatibilism, intersubjectivism, and egalitarianism. Also, suspecting that a pluralistic, multi-perspective strategy is appropriate, the book spent some time outlining three of the most prominent normative philosophies of ethics.

Keywords:   moral deliberation, social humanism, compatibilism, intersubjectivism, egalitarianism, pluralism, normative philosophies
