9780199266401: Perfectionism and the Common Good: Themes in the Philosophy of T. H. Green (Lines of Thought)

David Brink presents a study of T. H. Green's Prolegomena to Ethics (1883), a classic of British idealism. Green develops a perfectionist ethical theory that brings together the best elements in the ancient and modern traditions and that provides the moral foundations for Green's own influential brand of liberalism. Brink's book situates the Prolegomena in its intellectual context, examines its main themes, and explains Green's enduring significance for the history of ethics and contemporary ethical theory.

About the Author:

David O. Brink is in the Department of Philosophy, University of California, San Diego.

Review:

Brink is successful in his effort to convince his readers that Green is a very reflective interpreter of both Aristotle and Kant, an interpreter who articulates Aristotle's and Kant's considered views better than these two thinkers themselves did. ...this is a short, crisp, readable book that makes one want to read Brink's new edition of Green's Prolegomena, both for the purpose of getting a fuller picture of the history of ethical theory as well as for the purpose of developing the best possible contemporary ethical theory. * The Review of Metaphysics *
