Overview

Gert's account of morality as a public system that applies to all rational persons is the only objective account of morality that allows for limited moral disagreement. It explains why abortion and the treatment of animals are such controversial issues, justifies deciding some moral problems by voting, and explains the prevalence of hypocrisy.

    Not as Good as his Moral Rules

    I think Gert's 10 Moral Rules written years ago is by far his best book. It is compact and clearly written and presents a cogent argument on the relationship between rationality and morality. A better book that either of these is M. Berumen's new book Do No Evil, which borrows from Gert but substitutes logic (a la Hare/Kant) for publicity.
