Overview

Moral theory has been dominated by the idea that our moral thought and action require principles. In recent years, this view has been criticized by 'particularists' who deny a central place for moral principles in our lives. Particularism is a view that suggests that moral knowledge is a matter of attending to the details of particular cases rather than relying on principles. It is a startling idea and one that is at the forefront of contemporary philosophy. In Particularism and the Space of Moral Reasons, Benedict Smith adopts a new approach to the contemporary debate, and suggests novel ways to understand the prospects for moral particularism. The book applies a range of new ideas by drawing on different areas and traditions of philosophy, and includes discussion on human subjectivity, moral experience and moral judgement.
