Ethics & Philosophical Critique in William James

Ethics & Philosophical Critique in William James by Sarin Marchetti
English | 2015 | ISBN: 1137541776 | 292 pages | PDF | 2 MB

In Marchetti invites the reader to radically rethink James's seminal contribution to moral philosophy. Contrary to the st&ard interpretation of his work as a moral philosopher, Marchetti argues that James was not interested in defending a moral theory but rather aimed at problematizing the very methods & goals of a philosophical investigation of ethics. By giving prominence to this metaphilosophical feature of James's writings - grounded in his distinctive pragmatic mode of philosophizing aimed at the clarification, rather than at the foundation, of our human activities - Marchetti presents James's moral thought as an ambitious & imaginative attempt to set moral philosophy on different reflective rails. Against the attempt to advance disengaged meta-ethical accounts of what morality consists in & normative prescriptions about how to best implement it, James rethinks ethics as the critical elucidation of our ways of thinking & conducting ourselves in the midst of our ordinary practices for the sake of their amelioration.
