"Dimensions of Moral Theory "examines the key presuppositions and
philosophical commitments that support and shape moral theories.
Many of the topics discussed belong to "metaethics," the study
of moral concepts, language, and thought rather than a study of
moral issues themselves. Other topics are under the heading of
"moral psychology" and concern fundamental issues about the nature
of moral agents, moral motivation, and the roles of reason, desire,
and pleasure in moral action and experience. The book introduces
metaethical and moral psychological positions and arguments and
shows how they are generated and why they are important. It thereby
brings to light some of the most important philosophical problems
raised by moral theorizing.
This volume formulates these issues of moral epistemology, the
metaphysics of moral value, and moral motivation in a clear and
rigorous but non-technical manner.
