Morality Without Foundations Summary

Morality Without Foundations: A Defense of Ethical Contextualism by Mark Timmons (Professor of Philosophy, Professor of Philosophy, University of Memphis)

Timmons defends a metaethical view that exploits certain contextualist themes in philosophy of language and epistemology. He advances what he calls assertoric non-descriptivism, a view that employs semantic contextualism in giving an account of moral discourse. This view, which like traditional non-descriptivist views stresses the practical, action-guiding function of moral thought and discourse, also allows that moral sentences, as typically used, make genuine assertions. Timmons then defends a contextualist moral epistemology thus completing his overall program of contextualism in ethics.

Morality Without Foundations Reviews

Throughout, Timmons' arguments are well informed, fair-minded and nearly always persuasive. I think this will be one of the most admired books in contemporary meta-ethics. * Brad Hooker, Phil Quart. Vol.51, No.202, Jan 2001. *
This book deserves to be studied by everyone interested in the semantics and epistemology of ethics. * Brad Hooker, Phil Quart. Vol.51, No.202, Jan 2001. *
