Applied Ethics: A Defence
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Philosophy.
2011 (English)In: Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, ISSN 1386-2820, E-ISSN 1572-8447, Vol. 14, no 4, 397-406 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Given a reasonable coherentist view of justification in ethics, applied ethics, as here conceived of, can not only guide us, in our practical decisions, but also provide moral understanding through explanation of our moral obligations. Furthermore, applied ethics can contribute to the growth of knowledge in ethics as such. We put moral hypotheses to crucial test in individual cases. This claim is defended against the challenges from moral intuitionism and particularism.
