Agency, Nature, Transcendence, and Moralism: A Review of Recent Work in Moral Psychology [Book Review]
Journal of Religious Ethics 28 (2):297 - 328 (1997)
AbstractRecent work in moral and philosophical psychology provides valuable resources for religious ethicists, and this review examines contributions by Julia Annas, Annette Baier, John Bowlin, John McDowell, and William Wainwright. This literature raises important questions about the character of human moral being as naturalistic, about whether an explicitly supernatural morality can be other than inevitably "moralistic," and about how that might be so. Nonetheless, religious ethicists should appropriate it only with care, particularly in its emphasis on naturalism, and the partiality of its appropriation of ancient thinkers.
