Divine Commands and Moral Requirements

Philip L. Quinn

A Clarendon Press Publication

Clarendon Library of Logic and Philosophy

In this wide-ranging study, Quinn argues that human moral autonomy is compatible with unqualified obedience to divine commands. He formulates several versions of the crucial assumptions of divine command ethics, defending them against a battery of objections often expressed in the philosophical literature.
