Public And Private Morality - Stuart Hampshire (Ed.)

C.U.P., 1980, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Wraps a touch faded otherwise a very well presented copy.

How far can we apply the same moral principles to both public and private behaviour? the contributors to this volume examine the background to this problem in moral and political theory. Stuart Hampshire, Bernard Williams and Thomas Nagel consider the continuities and discontinuities between public and private morality and the models of rationality that might be appropriate to each. T. M. Scanlon and Ronald Dworkin consider more generally the type of moral claim on which political arguments turn; they look for a rational foundation for contemporary liberal attitudes. The volume will be of interest to students of political theory and ethics, and to anyone concerned with or about political issues and political life.
