Book Description:

History itself can affect the evolution of ideas. God and Morality evaluates the ethical theories of four principle philosophers, Aristotle, Duns Scotus, Kant, and R.M. Hare. While focusing ethical theory on the options of virtue, will, duty, and consequence, Hare keeps a careful eye on the larger context in which the philosopher's thoughts belong, presenting their work as a map through the historical advancement of ethical thought during four great periods in western philosophical history. This text also defies traditional modes of comparisons between the philosopher's by focusing attention not on the differences in their thought, but on the genuine similarities that exist among them. Additionally, an emphasis is put on the often circumvented relationship between each of the philosophers and theism.

From the Back Cover:

God and Morality evaluates the ethics of four principal philosophers – Aristotle, Duns Scotus, Kant, and R. M. Hare – placing an emphasis on the often circumvented relationship between their ethical theories and theism. While focusing on central concepts such as virtue, will, duty, and consequences, the author never loses sight of the larger context in which these views appear, presenting the work of these philosophers as keys to understanding the historical advancement of ethical thought during four great periods in Western philosophical history. This book defies traditional modes of comparison between these important philosophers by paying close attention not only to differences in their thought, but to significant and sometimes surprising similarities, taking seriously the role of God in their moral theories.
