9780820427034: The Moral Philosophy of R. M. Hare: A Vindication of Utilitarianism?

This is probably the most comprehensive study of R. M. Hare's moral language analysis which leads to his defense of utilitarianism. Contesting the attempt by logical positivists to make moral statements non-philosophy, this work agrees in large part with R. M. Hare's analysis of language, but points out that Hare deserts his own philosophy in real situations of application. It finds that the utilitarian element to be found in most moral judgments is given undue weight and made the foundation of morality; actually utilitarianism only expropriates old precepts of intuitions. This book is commendable for its singular call to see the value of various moral philosophical positions and reconcile the truth in them, for such truths are not mutually exclusive simply because they come from philosophers of different schools.

About the Author:

The Author: Patrick A. Adu-Amankwah was a priest of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Koforidua, Ghana. After his philosophical studies at St. Peter's Regional Seminary in Ghana, he obtained a baccalaureate degree in theology at the prestigious Urban University in Rome in 1983. He returned to Rome for graduate studies in philosophy at his alma mater, earning the licentiate in political philosophy magna cum laude in 1990, and the doctorate degree summa cum laude in moral philosophy in June 1993. Reverend Father Patrick A. Adu-Amankwah died on May 4, 1995, at the age of thirty-six.

Review:

«This work is an indispensable tool for all who want to understand the philosophy of R. M. Hare and see its tenability or otherwise in application. As an exposition, it shows an unparalleled understanding of Hare, and also provides the most detailed and stringent criticism of Hare's philosophy to date.» (J. J. Sanguineti, Pontifical Urban University, Rome)
