The Perfectionist Turn

From Metanorms to Metaethics

First Edition

Douglas Den Uyl and Douglas Rasmussen

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Contemporary political philosophy - e.g. Martha Nussbaum, John Rawls and Amartya Sen - tries to separate itself from other philosophical positions and frameworks. Now, Den Uyl and Rasmussen challenge this trend by moving from liberalism to what they call 'individualistic perfectionism', creating a powerful new way to think about ethics.
