Sorting Out Ethics

R. M. Hare

A Clarendon Press Publication

  • Hare's previous OUP books have together sold over 140,000 copies in English.
  • This book presents Hare's first full-length work since 1981.
  • This will be his last book.
  • The main body of the book derives from a set of lectures on theories of ethics; these are framed by versions of two previously published papers in which Hare defends his philosophical approach and shows how two great philosophical traditions, Kantian ethics and utilitarianism, are reconciled in his work.
