Filosofia moral moderna abans i després d’Anscombe

Constantine Sandis


Aquest article argumenta que hi havia considerablement més filosofia d’acció en teoria moral abans de 1958 (quan Anscombe es va queixar que en faltava sota el lema «filosofia de la psicologia») que la que hi ha hagut des de llavors. Això es deu en part al fet que Anscombe va influir en la formació de la «teoria de la virtut» com una posició més dins de l’ètica normativa, i el treball d’Anscombe va contribuir a la formació de la «psicologia moral» com una branca completament diferent (i ara cada vegada més empírica) de la filosofia moral.

Paraules clau

Anscombe; filosofia moral; teoria de la virtut; ètica normativa
