Aristotle's Moral Realism Reconsidered : Phenomenological Ethics, Hardback Book

Aristotle's Moral Realism Reconsidered : Phenomenological Ethics Hardback



This book elaborates a moral realism of phenomenological inspiration by introducing the idea that moral experience, primordially, constitutes a perceptual grasp of actions and of their solid traces in the world.

The main thesis is that, before any reference to values or to criteria about good and evil-that is, before any reference to specific ethical outlooks-one should explain the very materiality of what necessarily constitutes the `moral world'.

These claims are substantiated by means of a text- centered interpretation of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics in dialogue with contemporary moral realism.

The book concludes with a critique of Heidegger's, Gadamer's and Arendt's approaches to Aristotle's ethics.
