Kant's Theory of Virtue: the value of autocracy / Anne Margaret Baxley

£37.99

Product description

Publication date: 2010. Condition: Very good. The dust jacket is in good condition - it has some edge wear and a 5mm tear at the top front corner and more substantial edge wear at the top of the back, with a 2 cm tear. (Away from the edges the dust jacket is in very good condition). Internally, the book is in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked. Content: Anne Margaret Baxley offers a systematic interpretation of Kant's theory of virtue, showing how the distinctive features of Kant's moral theory offer an important and overlooked alternative to the Aristotelian views which have dominated contemporary virtue ethics. Anne Margaret Baxley offers a systematic interpretation of Kant's theory of virtue, whose most distinctive features have not been properly understood. She explores the rich moral psychology in Kant's later and less widely read works on ethics, and argues that the key to understanding his account of virtue is the concept of autocracy, a form of moral self-government in which reason rules over sensibility. Although certain aspects of Kant's theory bear comparison to more familiar Aristotelian claims about virtue, Baxley contends that its most important aspects combine to produce something different - a distinctively modern, egalitarian conception of virtue which is an important and overlooked alternative to the more traditional Greek views which have dominated contemporary virtue ethics.
