Moral Aims

Essays on the Importance of Getting It Right and Practicing Morality with Others

Cheshire Calhoun

  • Collects nine influential papers by moral philosopher Cheshire Calhoun
  • Includes a new introductory chapter that lays out the reasons why moral philosophy must make use of two very different conceptions of morality--morality as correct action guide and morality as effective, because actual, scheme of social cooperation
  • Argues that the normative theorizing needs to accommodate both the importance of the social practice of morality and the content, even when imperfect, of shared moral understandings within the social practice of morality
