Moralized psychology or psychologized morality? Anti-realism claims that morality is not real or universal, and it does not exist outside the mind. Such efforts include those of Friedrich Nietzsche, whom Franzese discusses extensively, Max Scheler, whom he mentions only briefly (51-52), and especially Michel Foucault, whom he does not mention at all. But now the application of punishment is sometimes justified as a mechanism to induce guilt in the victim of the punishing power--as if pain or solitude will somehow awaken the sleeping conscience.

Both al-Tusi and al-Dawani follow closely the lead of Ibn Miskawayh in the Tahdhib al-akhlaq. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1998.) There are moral conflicts about what is valuable and what ought to be done which appear to be irresoluble. Not only do folks differ about what the distinction between the concepts is; they also differ about how to define each one. Since this behavior has gotten worse in recent years, we know that it is substantially likely to continue to occur in the future.

The oath is recognized in society as something that doctors must do, but non-doctors are not required to understand or carry out, either by law or by the Oath. Because the autonomous will is the one and only source of moral action, it contradicts the first formulation of the categorical imperative to claim that a person is merely a means to some other end instead of an end in him or herself. And in the creating of specific laws with specific wording, loopholes creep in because it is difficult to predetermine and specify those and only those acts intended to be covered.

All three of these theories focus on the consequences of actions for different groups of people. Millions were spent on the treatment of two-dozen different STDs ( sexually transmitted diseases), a moral problem; $200 billion was lost to white-collar crime and $310 billion on violent crime (the inability to distinguish between right or wrong and to control one's behavior by a societal norm is a moral problem).

Dostoevsky was Russian-Orthodox, to the point of being fanatical. One of the best ways to check how well you understand that material is to try to explain it to someone who isn't already familiar with it. Bentham adopted the bold view that hedonism was correct both in its psychological and in its ethical forms, viz. that pleasure was both the only object of human choice and the only worthy object.

Let me check my brochure for a second and confirm what the title of his talk was — the radical-sounding title that sold so many tickets — yes, here it is, it’s, “Who says science has nothing to say about morality?” If we do a quick update based on Harris’ personal definition of science, we get … “Who says philosophy has nothing to say about morality?” The answer is: no one ever said that.
