Preston Stovall "Moral Reasoning as a Species of Practical Rationality"

25.10.2017

The LMS - Center welcomes Preston Stovall (UHK) to speak on "Moral Reasoning as a Species of Practical Rationality". You are mostly welcome to join us!!

Abstract: The moral realist views moral reasoning as an effort to arrive at true moral judgment. As a consequence, disagreements over the truth-values of different moral judgments become disagreements over which theory of moral reasoning (e.g. deontology, utilitarianism, virtue ethics, etc.) is correct. In this talk I will outline a theory on which moral reasoning is a species of practical rationality. In particular, I will argue that moral reasoning issues in judgments that give expression to collective 'we shall' intentions. On this theory, disagreement in moral judgment is interpreted as an effort to coordinate the actions of different agents around common goals. Some implications of this theory of moral reasoning are discussed, as is its relation to moral realism and the 18th century notion of a 'general will'.
