The Moral Foundations of Parenthood

Joseph Millum

  • Provides a broad, foundational account of moral parenthood — that is, an account of who parents are, and what they may and ought to do with regard to their children
  • Develops and defends a different account of parental rights and parental responsibilities to those that already exist
  • Distinctive because of the effort made to derive parental rights and responsibilities from more basic moral principles and so to integrate moral parenthood into wider moral theory
