In The Autonomy of Morality, Charles Larmore challenges two ideas that have shaped the modern mind. The world, he argues, is not a realm of value-neutral fact, nor is reason our capacity to impose principles of our own devising on an alien reality.

    In relation to moral development, the idea that individuals have their own thoughts about morality, and in some sense construct their moral worlds, is fundamental to all approaches to morality that take a cognitive stance, despite other differences in how these theories may describe moral development (e.g. Piaget, ; Kohlberg, ; Turiel Author: Charles C. Helwig, Sharon To. Morality, Autonomy, and God Kate Kirkpatrick Keith Ward. Oneworld Publications pp. This book aims 'to lay out a philosophical defence of a theistic basis for morality'.

    MORALITY AND DEMOCRACY our might, tend and must tend to dissolve. The solidarity between mother and child cannot be too jealously guarded and cultivated. That of men who are healthy and sick, good and wicked, reasonable and foolish, is an evil which we rightly com bat. A living being is partly one with and partly independent. This important new book develops a new concept of autonomy. The notion of autonomy has emerged as central to contemporary moral and political philosophy, particularly in the area of applied ethics. Professor Dworkin examines the nature and value of autonomy and used the concept to analyze various practical moral issues such as proxy consent in the medical context, paternalism, and entrapment Written: 26 Aug,

This can be confusing for newcomers who start reading anarchist literature and see direct democracy being described as anarchistic in one book and lambasted in another.

Autonomy and Democracy In this essay I discuss several recent studies of Rousseau's political phi-losophy. These studies cover a broad array of issues, ranging from Rous-seau on the nature of the will to Rousseau on direct democracy, and from the intellectual context that.
