About this book

Against the background of the recent revival of ethics, this handbook aims to show the great fertility of the phenomenological tradition for the study of ethics and moral philosophy by collecting a set of papers on the contributions to ethical thought by major phenomenological thinkers. Twenty-one chapters in the book are articles by experts who explore the thought of the major ethical thinkers in the first two generations of the phenomenological tradition and direct the reader toward the most relevant primary and secondary materials. The final three chapters of the book sketch more recent developments in various parts of the world, and the first three chapters investigate the relations between phenomenology and the dominant normative approaches in contemporary moral philosophy.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Phenomenological Approaches to Moral Philosophy succeeds in its goals of providing a primer for newcomers to phenomenological ethics or those needing to teach the subject, given the understanding that it is as much a bridge to more detailed analysis as anything else. … the overall result is comprehensive in its scope and a useful gateway into the world of phenomenological ethics.” (James Smyth, Yearbook of the Irish Philosophical Society 2010, 2010)
