Product Description

Calvin P. Van Reken's Principia Meta-Ethica explores metaethics—the study of moral language, moral ontology, and moral epistemology—in a manner accessible to both students and professional philosophers. Van Reken defends the classic view of moral realism, advanced by philosophers such as Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, and Kant.

Rather than honing in on moral language alone, this volume delves deeper into quetions of moral ontology and moral epistemology. Van Reken introduces the concept of moral field to help distinguish what is moral and what is amoral and, adapting an epistemological theory developed by Alvin Plantinga—an argument is made that we can know moral truths. Principia Meta-Ethica presents a return to the core issues of metaethics and strengthens the case for moral realism with new arguments, distinctions, and concepts.
