The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy, Volume 1
Klaus Brinkmann, Editor
By conventional standards, the papers in this volume fall roughly into the two broad categories of moral theory and applied ethics. However, a closer look will reveal that there is nothing conventional about them. Not only do some of the applied ethics papers challenge widely acknowledged positions in bioethics or suggest a new framework for the reconciliation of nature and culture in environmental ethics, the papers in moral theory show a remarkable preparedness to rethink traditional boundaries, positions, and methodological approaches altogether. Contributors include Stephen Darwall, Matti Häyry, Virginia Held, Alasdair MacIntyre, Ricardo Maliandi, Holmes Rolston III, Gunnar Skirbekk, and Hung-Yul So. Author abstracts are provided for each paper and a complete name index is provided.
