The Right and the Good

by Sir David Ross, Philip Stratton-Lake

Part of the British Moral Philosophers Series

The Right and the Good Synopsis

The Right and the Good is now presented with an introduction by Philip Stratton-Lake. David Ross's book examines ethical intuitionism, which was the dominant moral theory in British philosophy for much of the 19th and early 20th century. Intuitionism is now enjoying a considerable revival, and Stratton-Lake provides the context for an understanding of Ross's work today.

The Right and the Good Press Reviews

Review from previous edition Ross's The Right and the Good remains a classic statement of the idea that moral philosophy should place respect for the variety of moral phenomena above the urge for systematic unification. We still have much to learn from it. * Charles Larmore, Columbia University *
