    A Whig History of Ethics: A Review of "The Invention of Autonomy" by J. B. Schneewind. [REVIEW]G. Scott Davis - 2001 - Journal of Religious Ethics 29 (1):175 - 197.
    J. B. Schneewind's "The Invention of Autonomy" has been hailed as a major interpretation of modern moral thought. Schneewind's narrative, however, elides several serious interpretive issues, particularly in the transition from late medieval to early modern thought. This results in potentially distorted accounts of Thomas Aquinas, Hugo Grotius, and G. W. Leibniz. Since these thinkers play a crucial role in Schneewind's argument, uncertainty over their work calls into question at least some of Schneewind's larger agenda for the history of (...)

    A Short History of Ethics.G. Ardley - 1968 - Philosophical Studies (Dublin) 17:278-279.
    Some ninety years ago, Sidgwick wrote his Outlines of the History of Ethics for English Readers The work was precisely what the title claimed: a series of outlines running from the pre-Socratics to J S Mill and beyond. Sidgwick had no doctrinal axe to grind. His object was to inform, and in this object he was highly successful. He had a gift for clear unhurried exposition, and the Outlines remains to this day a masterpiece of its kind.

    Essays on the History of Ethics by Michael Slote (Review).William Simkulet - 2013 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 51 (3):500-501.
    In this book Michael Slote discusses the history of ethics from a sentimentalist perspective. It can be read in two ways: first, as a tribute to great thinkers whose contributions have helped shape contemporary ethics, and second, as a defense of a sentimentalist virtue theory. This review centers on the two chapters most relevant to sentimentalist virtue theory: chapter 1, in which Slote defines and defends elevationism, and chapter 5, in which he offers a defense of sentimentalism.

    A Short History of Ethics in Slovakia.Vasil Gluchman - 2017 - Human Affairs 27 (2):99-104.
    The history of ethical reasoning in Slovakia1 dates back to the beginning of the 16th century, a period when ethics and morals came to the fore of intellectual and philosophical thinking––owing to the influence of the humanism that prevailed during the Reformation2. This cultural and intellectual climate led to the revival of ancient culture, education, philosophy, and ethics, while a focus on purgation encouraged writers to ponder over the questions traditionally raised in ancient ethics: How should (...)

    "Ashby includes the great thinkers and periods that have shaped Western ethics: the Greeks, the Hebrew prophets, the Roman Stoics, St. Augustine, the medieval ethicists, the Renaissance and Reformation, the Enlightenment, the Romantics, and the radical revolutions of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In the period from 1850 to 1920, Ashby notes, the transformations wrought by the four great modern thinkers - Darwim, Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud - both extended and significantly challenged the traditional core beliefs of (...)

    Orientalism andAntivoluntarism in the History of Ethics: On Christian Wolff's.Mark Larrimore - 2000 - Journal of Religious Ethics 28 (2):189-219.
    Christian Wolff's 1721 "Discourse on the Practical Philosophy of the Chinese" is generally read as championing the autonomy of ethics from religion. This is too simple: Wolff's ethics was an antivoluntarist "religious" ethics. The example of the Chinese confirmed for Wolff that revelation is not necessary for knowledge or practice of genuine virtue, though he held that the Chinese achieve only the first of three "degrees of virtue." (Most Christians, including the Pietists who drove Wolff from Halle (...)

    Classical Republicanism and the History of Ethics: J. B. Schneewind.J. B. Schneewind - 1993 - Utilitas 5 (2):185-207.
    The ‘modern’ natural law philosophers of the seventeenth century believed that conflict was an unavoidable concomitant of human intercourse, rooted in our nature. They understood the normative laws of nature as serving the purpose of setting the limits within which conflict is compatible with lasting social cooperation, thus showing, in effect, how warfare can be turned into competition. The natural lawyers were interested primarily in legal and political problems, not in ethics. But in order to provide reasoned approaches to (...)

    Kant's History of Ethics.Allen W. Wood - manuscript
    Kant was not a very knowledgeable historian of philosophy. He came to the study of philosophy from natural science, and later the fields of ethics, aesthetics, politics and religion came to occupy his central concerns, but his approach to philosophical issues never came by way of reflection on their history. He was well acquainted, of course, with the recent tradition of German philosophy: Leibniz, Wolff, Baumgarten and Crusius, and he seems also to have had knowledge of eighteenth century (...)

    How should we look back on the history and the origins of our ethical outlook and our way of life? We know that in the past, strange and appalling ethical views and practices have enjoyed widespread and sincere support. Yet we do not regard our contemporary outlook – to the extent that we do, at the present, have a common outlook – as one option among many. However bemused we may feel in ethical matters, at least on some issues (...)

    Moral concern with food intake is as old asmorality itself. In the course of history, however,several ways of critically examining practices of foodproduction and food intake have been developed.Whereas ancient Greek food ethics concentrated on theproblem of temperance, and ancient Jewish ethics onthe distinction between legitimate and illicit foodproducts, early Christian morality simply refused toattach any moral significance to food intake. Yet,during the middle ages food became one of theprinciple objects of monastic programs for moralexercise (askesis). During (...)

    Reclaiming the History of Ethics: Essays for John Rawls. [REVIEW]Wes Cooper - 1998 - Dialogue 37 (4):867-870.
    This volume is for Rawls rather than about him or his philosophy. It collects essays by some of his students, testifying in endnotes to his inspiration as a teacher, but generally not reflecting on his major works. If the volume is about anything, it is about Kant’s moral philosophy, since eight of the fourteen essays address some aspect of it. But two have to do with Hobbes, two are on Rousseau, one on Aristotle, and one on Marx. The book shows (...)
