G. E. Moore’s Ethics. Good as Intrinsic Value
2004 0-7734-6262-7
An important and critical analysis of Moore’s conception of good and right is examined. It aims to show how contemporary moral philosophy is still concerned with intrinsic value, at least insofar as the concepts of good and bad lie at the heart of ethics: they are at work when we assess whether a person is virtuous or vicious, an act is right or wrong, a decision defensible or indefensible, a goal desirable or undesirable.
